Cross Rhodes - Goldust, Out of the Darkness is another in a long line of entertaining bios about WWE stars that reveals the triumphs and demons on their road to pro-wrestling glory. If there was anyone bred to be a star in the pro-wrestling industry, it would be the legacy of 'The American Dream' Dusty Rhodes, Dustin Rhodes.
The quick read follows the love and admiration Dustin held for his absentee father as he grew up in Texas and around the south. Dustin is eventually ushered into the business by his dad to earn his way to the top.
As the story advances, we see the specter of drugs, alcohol, and pain killers that plagues the athletes living the pro-wrestling lifestyle. Like so many before him, Dustin succumbs to the demons and struggles with that addiction while trying to maintain a happy life out of the ring and nurturing his breakout character, Goldust.
The book is a quick read and comes recommended for those who have grown to appreciate the Goldust gimmick and the work of Dustin Rhodes, one of the few remaining men who hold on to the traditions of the past.
