Edge and Christian open this week’s show speaking about Sami Zayn’s recent heel turn. Christian says that Zayn has cut a great heel promo on Smackdown Live two weeks in a row and he believes this turn has added some great layers to Zayn’s character.
Edge and Christian welcome Goldust to the show.
Goldust comments on the notion that it may have been his work in the mid-late 90’s that started the attitude era. He says that he likes to think that’s the case from time to time, but most people tend to agree that it was DX, NWO, Rock, Austin and all the other stars during that era that truly ushered in that cutting edge style.
He’s still very proud of what he accomplished with the Goldust character at that time, and he thinks a lot of the work he was doing back then was well before its time. He admits that when he transitioned from WCW to WWE in the mid 90’s he was determined to make his own success, separate from the ‘Rhodes’ name. He was handed the Goldust character and it took him a while to feel comfortable with it.
