Who is Goldust?

Dustin Patrick Runnels better known by his ring name Goldust, is an American professional wrestler who is currently signed to WWE, where he is one half of the WWE Tag Team Champions with his half-brother Cody Rhodes. Runnels' shocking, scandalous and mysterious gimmick of "Goldust" has frequently been praised as one of the central figures of the Attitude Era—which was a period of very adult content in the WWF/WWE.

He is also known for performing in various companies such as World Championship Wrestling and Total Nonstop Action Wrestling with his real name. Among the other names Runnels has performed under are Black Reign and Seven. Runnels is the son of "The American Dream" Dusty Rhodes.

Between WWF/E and WCW, Rhodes has officially won 19 total championships. In World Championship Wrestling, he was a two-time United States Champion, a one-time Six-Man Tag Team Champion, a two-time World Tag Team Champion, and a one-time NWA World Tag Team Champion. In World Wrestling Federation/Entertainment, he is a three-time Intercontinental Champion, a nine-time Hardcore Champion, a one-time World Tag Team Champion, and a one-time WWE Tag Team Champion.
