Just amazing what Goldust has done. Of course he was always this good but wrestled in an era with so much talent it'll never be matched again.

The Attitude Era lives on and shows why it was the absolute best :clap

It isn't because of Goldust alone this storyline is working.It is the Corporation vs Rhodes Family that is making it entertaining.Not to mention,a PG Era wrestler called Daniel Bryan has put up way better matches than Goldust this year

Probably worth giving credit to both Shield and Cody Rhodes for being a big part of that match too.

OP is high, there's been dozens of great matches this year and for the record an Attitude era main eventer (rock) put on three of the worst matches we've seen this year.

If anything Golddust's in-ring ability is far far more reflective of his WCW days more than anything.

I dont recall him putting on any matches close to tonight back in the attitude era

but its cute that you do

Any excuse to praise the attitude era eh? Nothing against Goldust. He's been amazing, but he isn't the only one who is doing great in this part of the corporation storyline.

That match got excellent time, and booking, this generation's talent can do that shit if they were granted the same privilege.

If Goldust keeps this up, I would definitely rank him in the Top 5 workers of the year despite only working a limited time period.

Yes Shield matches are usually garbage :lmao plz close this silly thread.

Goldust came out to a mild crowd reaction.

Actually, the Goldust character debuted in October '95. That's NEW GENERATION ERA, bruv.

DAT NEW GENERATION. Living on in our hearts forever.

Ya but Rock is not goldust, bg james or those retired guys where they wrestle a little bit here and there over the course of the years and able to maintain decent ring shape. The guy wrestled total of 5 matches in 2yrs and had an absence of 9 month in between. His match with punk at the chamber by no means worst.

Daniel Bryan, The Shield, and CM Punk all put on good matches. Cena can as well when he wants too and Ziggler can surprise every once in a while. I just think it makes a profound statement that someone like Goldust (who has been around forever) can stroll in and not only hang with the best WWE currently has to offer, but outshine them.

You probably aren't old enough to remember. But the reason you don't is because in the era he wrestled, there were probably 12-15 guys who could be the top guy any given night.

fpalm @ this thread.

Yeah, I'm sure Cody, Rollins, and Reigns had nothing to do with it.

You're missing the point. They SHOULD be that good and putting on top matches. Let's see how they do in say 20 years when Cody has to come back and put over his son, Connor Rhodes.

For comparison, Cody and the Shield members are all 28 years old. (Or close to that age).

Dustin is 44.

Almost two decades older than his counterparts. That's incredible.

They were already having good matches, Shield and Cody, in their own areas before Goldust showed up again. He hasn't changed much.
