Dustin moved to World Championship Wrestling (WCW).

Dustin was released from WCW and entered the WWF in fall 1995, Dustin was now known as Goldust.

Goldust debuted in the WWF at an In Your House Pay-Per-View, defeating Marty Jannetty.

Goldust went on to defeat Bam Bam Bigelow at the 1995 Survivor Series. This meant he would have an Intercontinental Title shot at the 1996 Royal Rumble.

January 4th 1996, Goldust defeated Razor Ramon (Scott Hall) at the 1996 Royal Rumble to capture the Intercontinental Title, thanks to the help of the 123 Kid (X-Pac, Syxx). This was also the debut of Goldust’s new manager, Marlena.

April 1st 1996, Goldust took on Savo Vega at Raw. The match ended in controversial fashion. Goldust’s Title was held up, which he reclaimed later that night in a rematch to become a 2-Time Intercontenental Champion.

Goldust lost the Intercontinental Title to Ahmed Johnson at Summer Slam 1996.

Goldust became a fan favourite in early 1997, he feuded with Hunter Hearst-Helmsley and Brian Pillman.

In fall 1997, Goldust dumped his manager, and then real-life wife, Marlena (Terri Runnels) and introduced Luna Vachon. Goldust became known as “The Artist Formerly Known As” Goldust.

On May 11th 1998, during Raw Is War Dustin Rhodes burnt the Goldust attire, saying that the Goldust gimmick had ruined his life and the respect for the Rhodes name.

Mid 1998 Dustin was known simply as Dustin Runnels. Dustin became a devoted Christian and prayed during matches.

Fall 1998 Dustin Runnels was claiming “He was coming back”. We later found out that “He” wasn’t God, “He” was Goldust. Sure enough Dustin Runnels returned to WWF Television as Goldust on an edition of Raw Is War.

Early 1999, Goldust fueded with Val Venis over Terri Runnels for a while before being pushed to the top again.

The Blue Meanie joined Goldust.

Goldust lost the Title to the Godfather (Goodfather) a couple of weeks later.

Dustin (Goldust) Runnels was off of Television with a back injury and was released from the WWF in fall 1999. He then joined WCW for the second time.

When Dustin made his 2nd WCW Television debut he came out in all black, with white face paint. He "shooted" on the Goldust gimmick as well as other things. Dustin's was known as 7even.

Dustin was once again known as Dustin Rhodes. He fueded with Jeff Jarrett scoring pin falls over him.

Dustin then joined Terry Funk, but turned his back on Terry which ended up in a short fued. Dustin was now "The American Nightmare".

The fued continued in March 2000. Dustin was then kept off of Television from March 29th.

January 29th 2001, Dustin finally made it back to WCW TV. Then CEO, Rick Flair announced Dustin as the newest member of new WCW. Rhodes declined Flair's invitation, and attacked him. Animal ran out to help the CEO, and the two attacked Dustin. Dusty's music hits, Dustin and Dusty clear house.

In Dustin's return bout he defeats Rick Steiner.

Dustin loses to Rick Steiner at SuperBrawl Revenge and misses out on the chance to re-capure the US Title.

Dustin and Dusty Rhodes fued with Rick Flair and Jeff Jarrett. It ends up in a match at WCW Greed. Dustin and Dusty defeat the two.

Dustin re-joined the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) in January 2002 at the 2002 Royal Rumble as Goldust.

That would be cool but I cant see WWE doing that? His current run with Booker-T seems pretty populer with WWE fans.

Dustin Runnels would be a fool to think he could be over as ...Dustin Runnels in the WWE .
His "Goldust" gimmick is his greatest success as a wrestler and i hope he will keep with that gimmick as long as possible.
His entrance is simply the best in WWE (in my opinion)
