Goldust's Reevaluation (2015)

His name is Goldust and Cageside Seats readers have reported back on what they love and loathe about the former Tag Team Champion. Here's the full evaluation.

What you loved:

  1. In-Ring - This move alone shows what he can still do.
  2. Scoop Slam - After Orton's, it's the best out there.
  3. Shape - In the twilight of his career, Goldust has done an amazing job with his conditioning.
  4. Stardust Team - It was unique, and shook up the Cody/Goldy team that we were used to. It was amusing to see Goldust as the "normal" one.
  5. Promos - Mic work was never a problem for him. He must have received some of that talent from his Daddy, if you wheeeeeeel!

Best comment comes via Casey Garner:

"The reason I finally decided to buy DDP Yoga. He still has it in incredible ways, and he and the undertaker are the only ones left that rose from the ashes of the Odd gimmick era and still can make it work. One of my all time favorites."


What you loathed:

  1. Stardust Feud - First off, they waited way too long to have Cody and Goldust feud with each other. When it finally occurs, creatively, it wasn't done very well. Then, they get a nothing match at Fast Lane, which Goldust wins, for whatever reason. No WrestleMania moment for Goldy, nothing, seriously Creative?
  2. Booking - For most of 2014, he was stuck in the mid-card mess.
  3. No Singles' Run - Most likely due to age, he won't be receiving any big run on his own.
  4. Stardust Creation - Some of you felt the Stardust gimmick didn't help Cody much, time will tell.
  5. Goldust Gimmick - Currently, the lack of creepiness is disturbing.

Best comment comes via BrassCitySaint:

"The sibling rivalry feud was a bust, plain and simple. It was incredibly under-booked in every way, and even a fourth quarter Hail Mary in the form of Dusty intervening wasn’t enough to make fans get into the conflict. To boot, the matches were sub-par compared to what many were hoping for, and sadly that probably means Dustin Runnels will go close out his career not with a bang, but with a whimper."

On to the poll! With 334 votes, Goldust's average score is 3.9, last year he received a 4.

Thanks, Cagesiders! Tomorrow's pick should cheer everyone up.

Until then!
