When Urban Meyer met Goldust.

If seeing Alabama head coach Nick Saban doing the Electric Slide in a crimson sports jacket didn't make your head explode, prepare for your brain to go into full nuclear meltdown. WWE wrestler Goldust (aka Dustin Rhodes, for you hopeless WCW old schoolers) tweeted out a picture of himself with Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer.

Goldust is a second, generation native of Austin, Texas, just like his father, the legendary former NWA World Heavyweight Champion Dusty Rhodes. It's a safe bet the "Longhorn" reference excludes any chance of his being an Aggie fan. (For the record, the elder Rhodes played college football at the University West Texas.)

As for Urbs being a wrestling fan...who knew! Hopefully the WWE gives him a honorary WWF heavyweight title belt like it did Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin. It's going to be the closest he and Ohio State will get to a title until at least next December.
