Originally posted by Guru ZimI thought that his hardcore title win over Maven was great - that kind of psych move is something that they could really work with for the Goldust character.
The early days of Goldust were much better than when he turned baby face and the way he is now. He really pushed the envelope when he debuted, because he played on all the gay phobias. Now, that obviously isn't politically correct, and I always thought of him as somebody who was a bad guy that just happened to act like a homosexual in order to psych people out. Anyway, all the semantic/moral judgments aside, it was really funny seeing guys react to his antics. Now, he's just a guy that dresses up in an elaborate costume and wears a lot of make-up, and that's sad because he could be a lot cooler than that if they'd let his character run.

I caught NXT live when they were up in New England last month, and I can vouch for Tenken's excitement. Almas is great, and had a really nice way of connecting with a crowd that had no fucking idea who he was. Hopefully that will translate on TV.
