WWE superstar Goldust has rejected rumors that he's set to retire from the wrestling organization after this Sunday's WrestleMania pay-per-view.
Goldust - real name Dustin Patrick Runnels - has been involved on the wrestling scene since the late 1980s, but he may well be around for a little while longer yet.
At 45-years-old, he's been involved in a number of different stints in WWE, having followed in the footsteps of his father, Dusty Rhodes.
The superstar's half brother, Cody Runnels, who currently portrays the character of Stardust, is also involved in the company, and the duo may well be working with one another for the foreseeable future.
Goldust was sent a tweet from a fan asking whether he would retire after the 'Grandest Stage of them All', however he's insisted that he has no plans to leave the company, claiming that wrestling is in his DNA.
Of course, it remains to be seen as to whether WWE CEO Vince McMahon keeps Goldust in the industry for the long term, or whether he attempts to end his lengthy career in the business.
For now, though, Goldust is here to stay, and will no doubt be hoping for a big moment at the Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California on Sunday night. The superstar is set to enter the second annual Andre the Giant memorial battle royal, but it would certainly surprise the majority if he left victorious.
Goldust right to stay on
In truth, the wrestling hierarchy would be better giving an up-and-coming superstar the chance to enjoy a WrestleMania moment as they look to bring through new talent on the biggest of stages.
Goldust, though, should certainly hang about, as his experience would only help youngsters, and he still has something left to offer inside the ring. Contrary to his own belief, he will have to retire one day, but don't expect it to be anytime soon, as long as McMahon and Co. don't intervene.
