WWE is famous for creating on-screen couples, but this couple was a real life one and still couldn’t manage to create the chemistry needed for the storyline to work.
In fairness to Marlena, the Goldust character was a strange one, but it seems that Marlena just didn’t fit in the way
that WWE thought she would. It seems WWE thought that her normal character would level out Goldust, but the two just didn’t work.
Even after she left Goldust and headed off to manage the likes of The Hardy Boys, Edge and Christian and Terri Runnels, she always looked a little out of place. Maybe wrestling was the wrong business for her.
