Neither one, but Goldust made Dustin very popular.

The difference with their gimmicks was night and day!!































Without the face paint and bodysuit, Dustin Runnels is Dusty Rhodes? son. Period. No storyline angle at work here, only DNA. Of course, being the son of The American Dream, while allowing Dustin to learn from one of the all-time greats, also placed a lot of pressure on the then-young man?s shoulders.































Dustin?s initial run in the WWF lasted only two months before he moved on to WCW, where he stayed for four years. Runnels? career in WCW was good. He honed his skills in the ring, and was featured in the tag team division. Yes, Dusty?s son had a nice little career going for him.































As for his WWE character, Goldust was creepy, between his long wig, face paint, feathered robe and all of the suggestive innuendo that went into his actions and body language. Everything pointed to the unsettling gimmick as being one of the most original and effective the WWF has ever seen.































This gimmick was over. Instant reaction every time Goldust hit the ramp, with some fans laughing, some booing and others just shaking their heads in shock and disgust. No matter how the fans viewed him, Goldust demanded attention and he got it by the truckload.































No doubt about it, Dustin Runnels has set himself apart from his father. He carved out his own niche based on his ability in the ring, and his willingness to take on a gimmick that, if unsuccessful, could have potentially killed his career. He made it work, and he deserves serious credit for that.































With that said, Dustin Rhodes as the Natural is too similar to Dusty Rhodes, and because of that, there's only one Dusty Rhodes. And there is, most definitely, only one Goldust.

I prefer Goldust. I haven't seen much of him as Dustin Rhodes. Only few times in TNA.

The Natural Dustin Rhodes who I saw in World Championship Wrestling who was a Multi-Time WCW United States Heavyweight Champion and a Multi-Time WCW World Tag Team Champion. Dustin Rhodes had rivalries with Wrestlers such as Stunning Steve Austin, Ravishing Rick Rude. Dustin Rhodes wrestled in Bull Rope Matches, Bunkhouse Stampede Matches, War Games Matches. I wanted to see The Natural Dustin Rhodes wrestle WWE Champion Randy Orton, not Golddust.
