Goldust released
June 14, 2006

WWE has come to an agreement on the release of Goldust (Dustin Runnels) as of today, June 14, 2006. WWE wishes Dustin the best in all future endeavors.

I am shocked about this. I thought he would at least be left on HeAT with his dad still there.

Move him to ECW, revive his Natural gimmick, turn him into an older Steve Corino -- cowbell, cowboy boots, the whole nine yards.

Nooooooo. Dustin Runnels is only entertaining when he's wearing gold facepaint and hamming it up. He's both blessed and cursed-hilarious and entertaining in a gimmick he probably wishes he could leave behind forever.

To those who say people wouldn't look; they wouldn't be interested; they're too complacent, indifferent and insulated, I can only reply: There is, in one reporter's opinion, considerable evidence against that contention. But even if they are right, what have they got to lose? Because if they are right, and this instrument is good for nothing but to entertain, amuse and insulate, then the tube is flickering now and we will soon see that the whole struggle is lost. This instrument can teach, it can illuminate; yes, and it can even inspire. But it can do so only to the extent that humans are determined to use it to those ends. Otherwise it is merely wires, and lights, in a box.-Edward R. Murrow

I can't understand why WWE keep releasing Goldust. He is consistently entertaining, I'd say one of the funniest backstage segment guys WWE have, and he can go in the ring. Although this release isn't as shocking as the last one, I think it's a bit stupid, while Hacksaw is paraded every few weeks (although quite entertaining), and while there is STILL no real Tag Division to speak of. Although an unusual pairing, at least Snitskydust was another challenger for the Tag Title. I seriously think that the Brand Extension should now end, and Smackdown! & Raw should merge again, maybe pushing some more of the midcarders who deserve a push into the new ECW (like Hardy, Finlay, Simon Dean).

WWE must hate me. A few years back, the WEEK BEFORE I went to a Smackdown taping in Rochester, WWE released Hogan and Piper, who were Smackdown guys. Now, less than a week before I go to RAW in Rochester, they release Goldust, one of my favorite guys and one I was looking forward to seeing. Damn you WWE!

The writers busted their asses to write funny comedic skits to get Goldust and Booker-T hugely over with the fans, but they absolutely refused to do the same with Goldust and Snitsky.

I have one word...boomerang. Guy there, then he's not, then he is. They've only used him a couple of time very effectively since his IC wins in the 90's. Yeah, Booker/Dust tag team was awesome too.

If you can't beat'em whack'em with a chair!

Couldn't he have at least moved to Smackdown? He would have fit perfectly over there.

Heeelllloooo big Kev.... The writers only have so much time to fill! The Big Vis and the "Kiss My Ass Club" obviously need the comedic time slot, they are sooooo over!

As someone at WWE Headquarters thinks..."Move *to* Smackdown? How would that work?"

Maybe they're building to an angle where SD doesn't have any wrestlers left, and Teddy Long has to entertain us by himself for two hours every week. B^)

His ring skills aren't what they used to be, and he's definitely gotten a lot larger since his last WWE tour (but not in the good way). The WWE has plenty of backstage performers, so this isn't much of a surprise to me. I'll miss his backstage skits, but I won't miss him in the ring.

I'll say this, at least he had some unique moves in the ring. There was that jumping butt attack, and that weird fall to the ground and punch thing. Better than some new guy coming in doing drop kicks and power bombs.

In the real world, WWE believes that no matter what our race, religious creed or ethnic background in America, we all share the common bond of being Americans. American-Arabs are a part of the fabric of America, and they should be embraced by all of us.

Mid-90's Goldust was one of the greatest characters of all time, and the catalyst for the Attitude stuff. That said, I'd rather not see him at all than see him wasted like he has been. The announcers kept trying to convince us he's "bizarre," as if just saying it makes it so. During this latest run, he was about as bizarre as Charlie Haas.

I usually dish out quite a lot of money on their DVD's but I don't see myself buying the Best of Confidential one. Of course I'm sure if they added enough nice extras I could be tempted.
