Well, we've seen one of the most entertaining wrestlers of 2002 completely devolve into a sideshow freak. Considering I'm talking about GOLDUST, that says a lot! I haven't found his gimmick funny at all and it's looking like a lot of the IWC feels the same way.

I can't help but feel bad for Goldust on this one. Hell, his whole stuttering thing is going to replayed over and over on Howard Stern! Imagine how bad he must be feeling. He finally started getting over big time and now he's losing his heat again because of the Gerwirtz Machine of Bad Ideas.

Is anybody else feeling sorry for poor G-Dizzy?

The worst part is that they cannot even proceed with whatever they had planned for him. I guess he can get revenge in 3-6 months. Until then...

ummm, yeah. Exactly.

I don't find it offensive or anything, (I wouldn't even figured it was tourette's if I didn't read a net report saying that was the plan) but I do agree it's something that can get really old really fast.

Anyone remember when the Dudley's first came in the WWE and they had Bubba's stuttering. They dropped it pretty fast because it was dumb.

I guess every failed and dumb idea needs a second go around (and third... and forth. lol)

What exactly does this mean?

Anyway, Goldie's new gimmick is painful to watch. He was plenty freaky and weird without this stuttering bullshit. What exactly are they going for here?

Moo hoo ha ha.

The only funny part so far was watching Austin react to his twitches by twitching with him. It was almost like the heel Austin that wanted hugs was back.

It seemed the usual WWF/E formula was applied: mid carder + over = give stupid gimmick/angle to kill the crowd.

I'll pay $49.95 for the Execute Bin Laden PPV. And I'll buy one of the lottery tickets at 10 bucks a pop to be the executioner.

Why would I feel sorry for someone who is probably going to get more mainstream exposure than any other point in his career? I'd be pretty excited right now if I was Dustin.
And to be honest, we really haven't seen too much of his new character yet. It's just been the one interview and a handful of backstage bits. I'm sure it will be tweaked a bit as it grows, so I'm not too concerned at the moment. With the right sidekick and/or antagonist, his character could catch on. It's not that far off from the "What?" phenomenon, anyway.

I wish they made chocolate Advent calendars for WrestleMania, although I'd skip the Mark Henry day.

The worst part is they took the best backstage entertainer and turned him into a car wreck. I remember laughing my ass off when he was the Croc Hunter and was hunting Big Show and X-Pac. It was hilarious. And the whole time follwoing up to their tag team when he would follow Booker around. Now, he is not even funny and it is a waste of talent. The true testament to his talent is that so mnay people have hope that he may pull it off. I could not see any other wrestler trying this angle and being funny. They should end this real soon and let him go back to doing real comedy.

First off, I'm not one of those sensitive, boo-hoo people on this board that get offended easily by racist/necropheliac/etc angles, but something is weird about this. I mean, Tourrette's *IS* something that a lot of people have, and a lot of people have problems because of it. For whatever reason, I caught 7th Heaven the other day, and they had an episode about a kid with Tourrette's. It showed how isolated they can be and how kids make fun of them for being "different". I'm sure that there's Tourrette's kids that watch (or have watched) WWE.

Then to see some dude in gold make-up stuttering all over the place with everybody laughing hysterically, how do you think that would make them feel? What if a young WWE fan with Tourrette's was to meet Goldust, his favorite wrestler. What would G-Dizzy say to him? "It's just an act"? That doesn't fly when a kid with the syndrome turns RAW on and sees the "big funny Tourrette's" angle. That just seems a little wrong. Not just for insensitivity reasons, but because, uh, really ISN'T even funny. I mean, so the guy is going "oo-oo-oo" like an ape in between his words and twitching. I'm supposed to pull a LMFAO!!!!1? I don't chuckle or anything, I just think to myself "man this is kinda stupid". I don't know why a lot of you said this had "potential" or "promise", but I'm glad that at least some of you are realizing that this is going nowhere.

I personally think it's much too early for this kind of talk. I mean, Goldust's old gimmick would have gotten boring pretty fast too, if it weren't for Dustin's performance ability. He took a gimmick and made it into a CHARACTER. We've established the new gimmick, let's see if he can take it to the next level and make a character again.

Allow me to chime in with the majority, that being "I wanna see him get over with this gimmick, but it's not gonna happen". I just don't see how he could possibly parlay this into a "What?"-style phenomenon. How're you gonna chant along to tics?
