This week’s episode of Raw featured a backstage segment where Bayley gave Goldust a Dusty Rhodes bear as a Christmas present. Bayley then went on to tell Goldust that she wouldn’t be where she is in WWE today without the support she got from Dusty in NXT. Goldust and Bayley hugged, then Bayley left.
Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows then stepped up to Goldust and R-Truth, and Anderson grabbed the Dusty Rhodes bear out of Goldust’s hands and ripped its head off. The Golden Truth tried to get revenge later in the show in a tag team match, but Anderson rolled Goldust up to get the victory.
Cody Rhodes commented on the Dusty Rhodes segment on Twitter, and you can see what he had to say below.
Not gonna' say something mean or blow a whistle. All I can say…is that whoever produced that, I hope they never know what this feels like
