EDIT: This meant to be a reply, but I SCREWED UP and hit "new thread" instead. AGH! GD ME TO H!


It was Goldust, of course.

As many may remember, when it was first used, it had the name "GDTV". That was pulled because GD is an abbreviation of "Goddamn", which was taboo on TV at the time. I'm not sure if it is, still...

The GD would have to be Goldust, expecially when you take into account that it would fit his character.

Unless, of course, there was a scrapped character named "Goddamn". Hey, that sounds kind of catchy. You could chant it!

GTV was meant to be done by Goldust, yes. However, he quit in the midst of it, so it just became a hidden camera gimmick.

I don't think they got rid of the "D" in GDTV because of it being an abbreviation for God Dman. I think it was just dropped as soon as Goldust left the WWF. They probably figured "GTV" would be more general and easier to come up with who was behind it (until they decided to leave it unsolved).

Yes, indeed I can dig it, Sucker.

Actually they got rid of the D before Goldust left because someone in the (then) WWF realized that it would be easy for the fans to figure it was Goldust if they kept the D in. Hence GTV.

I wish they would use that more. At least it would explain some of the instances where they had cameras hidden in the strangest places.

Heck is for people that don't believe in Gosh.
