Goldust Appreciation Thread ...

No. Seriously - I think the whole concept of Goldust was a brilliant character at times, and I actually think Dustin played it well. Tell me what you think and/or post your fav Goldust moments.

I've been in the Danger Zone! He's got a Bicycle! Minus! Five! Stars! FAT ASSES! Mongo! Huh? Yappapi! WE COMING FOR YOU .....! Super Dragon! (CZW Airhorn) Oh shi- Jeff Harvey. How Much Does This Guy Weigh? Hahaha! Play! Wanna Play 21? FAKKEN!

I can't say I ever really understood the point of it all, but my goodness it was entertaining. The TAFKAGoldust stuff also xD

Honestly I never liked the Goldust character. I think Dustin is creative and I applaud that he made it work as long as he did, but my favorite Goldust moment is when Jerry Lawler pinned him in the King of the Ring tournament in 97.

I've read his biography, he's had a tough life and an underrated carreer

Re: Goldust Appreciation Thread ...

Anyone remembers him as Se7en in WCW? He looked like Uncle Fester from the Addams Family .

I accept rep.

Headbanging is crucial.

The one promo he cut as se7en was one of the highlights of his career.

Goldust was a great gimmick, not a lot of people could have pulled it off, i didn't like the time he spent as The artist formerly known as Goldust but the rest was entertaining.

Re: Goldust Appreciation Thread ...

Goldust was a great original character and he pushed a lot of boundaries when he began his push in early 1996. I've always seen mid 1996 through to mid 1997 as a years transitional period from The New Generation Era through to The Attitude Era and whilst Goldust may not have played as HUGE a part as Shawn Michaels, Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Undertaker, Mankind and Kane in ushering in that era he played a good part all the same.

I don't think Goldust was anywhere near as good in 1997 as he was in 1996 and that was down to me not being able to buy into his character as a babyface as i always saw that character as such a natural heel. I enjoyed his feuds with Razor Ramon, The Undertaker, The Ultimate Warrior and Rowdy Roddy Piper but i just couldn't really get into his feuds with Triple H and Brian Pillman because his wasn't a character you could really get behind and accept as a babyface in my opinion.

In 1996 i definitely would have bought into him main eventing PPV's with Shawn Michaels as he was probably at one point the top heel in the company and his Intercontinental title run saw him get a lot of tv and PPV time allocated to him. Dustin Rhodes himself has always been a good in ring worker and i always liked him whilst watching WCW from the early 90's through to early 1995 and he always seemed to be on WCW Worldwide every Saturday afternoon so i saw a lot of him. I don't think he was WWE/World champion material but he could have worked at the top of the card and i'd like to see him have a farewell match at WrestleMania in the future.
