From The WWE Rumor Mill: WWE nixes Goldust storyline
What's the story?
According to Wrestling Observer Radio, an angle planned for Goldust on RAW has been dropped by the creative team.
Goldust was set to appear at Summerslam PPV in regards to this angle but that didn't go through.
In case you didn't know...
After the Golden Truth broke up with Goldust attacking R-Truth, Goldust turned heel for the first time since 2015.
He had a feud with R-Truth for a while but since then, he hasn't been involved in a meaningful program.
He has appeared amongst the bunch of superstars that were used to stop the brawl between Roman Reigns, Samoa Joe, and Braun Strowman.
The heart of the matter
Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer stated that an angle was conceptualized with Goldust in mind; wherein he would be shown scouting for a protegee. That idea seems to have been shut down by the WWE creative team since then.
Two weeks before Summerslam, Goldust appeared on RAW and stated that he would reveal his last masterpiece at Summerslam.
He was supposed to reveal his chosen protegee as per the initial plans but that did not happen on the PPV show.
The story has not been mentioned on WWE television in several weeks. It is quite likely that the story has been dropped altogether.
Goldust's last few appearances on WWE TV include the 15-Man Battle Royal for a shot at the Intercontinental Championship where he was unsuccessful.
On the September 11 episode of RAW, Goldust faced Bray Wyatt in a losing effort. This win was used to fuel Bray's feud with Finn Balor.
Goldust's future looks bleak as there aren't many superstars with whom he can work that make much sense.
We will have to wait and see what program WWE has planned for him in the future.
Goldust has been one of the most bizarre characters in the history of WWE with his unique gimmick.
His angle with R-Truth clicked due to their chemistry, but there are very few options for WWE to create such programs for him. The future looks bleak for Goldberg in WWE at least in terms of performing, maybe he can take up producing as a full-time job now.
