Any WWE fan will tell you that Goldust – the bizarre alter ego of Dusty Rhodes’ son, Dustin Runnels – has been adrift ever since they separated him from Stardust, his brother in both the ringside realm and the real world (pro wrestling is complicated) last year.
So, in an attempt to help Goldie get his mojo back, WWE has begun teasing a storyline in which he attempts to convince another wrestler, the always-entertaining R-Truth, to become his tag team partner. On Monday night’s episode of Raw, Goldust’s plan didn’t exactly pan out (Truth mistakenly thought he was hitting on him…because Truth is easily confused these days), so he’s taken his campaign to Twitter, and even coined a name for the potential team – Golden Truth – though R remains rather perplexed by his offer.
Growing desperate, Goldust then broke out the big guns, recruiting none other than Amber Rose to help convince Truth to join his team. And Rose, fresh off an ethering of former flame Kanye West, was more than happy to oblige.

It’s not as strange as you might think; after all, Rose has a bit of history with WWE, though her involvement has certainly added a new wrinkle to the storyline. Of course, as of today, R-Truth still won’t say yes to Goldust. Is he confused? Afraid of what Yeezy might do to him on Twitter? Terrified of stepping into the ring with Tag Team champs New Day? We’re not sure…but c’mon, Truth, let’s make this team happen. Goldust needs it. Amber Rose needs it. America needs it.
