Goldust has been doing outstanding work ever since returning the WWE television last month; some of the best of his 25-year career.

Goldust and his brother Cody are currently the hottest acts in the company, eclipsing even the WWE Championship feud between Daniel Bryan and Randy Orton.
Now is the perfect time to look back at Goldust and seven other great WWE comebacks.
