    AEW Battle of the Belts

    My memories of that version of Golddust are slow plodding matches with sexual assault against other wrestlers in the build up for those feuds. The only "highlight" would be the Piper match at mania. The Hollywood version of Golddust was much more fun and enjoyable, but I have nothing good to say about the 1996 gimmick or his wrestling at that time. Think on the house shows he may have wrestled more like his WCW days, as I have seen the Michaels vs Golddust ladder match, which looked like his best match from that time period. Think it was supposed to be a rib by Vince on Dusty, as he was using Dustin for his normal sense of humour. Dustin was a good enough wrestler and above average on mic to have made it to a world title picture, but I feel Golddust always held him back and kept him in the mid card for the whole of his career in the WWE. So this does taint my view of the gimmick, as much as Dustin embraced the gimmick and reinvented himself, it was at the detriment of his career As Dustin he could have been a classic foe for Austin and they would have had matches that we would still be talking about now.

    But much better than the 00's, NJPW was doing the best it's done in decades until covid hit.

    Is the empire crumbling before our eyes?

    Yes because they would never sell a show on a guy having to have his eye gouged out to lose.

    I thought Business was turned around by Tanahashi, but Okada built on it and it remained strong with him on top. The last two years don't count as business has been destroyed by covid and the government mandates on crowd size.

    Will also add it was a gimmick feeding on homophobic hate, even in 1996 it was in poor taste, nothing fantastic about that version of the Goldust character.

    From memory it was because he had to tone down/stop his gay sexual overtones with the gimmick, Vince then lost interest with it.

    Shame his personal demons and gimmick hurt his work and push back then.

    Would guess men of the year get involved leading to a tag match on dynamite

    Dustin is 52 years old and it's crazy how good he is for his age. It's just a shame there's not a touring system he could work 6 man tags and help the young guys get up to speed with their ring work. Keep him in tags if he wants to carry on wresting, as in singles he's starting to struggle to keep up with the guys in the ring. Just a shame with how the WWE used him, think of all those awesome matches we could have had.

    Watch the Bryan match with Dustin, his speed and cardio wasn't there in that match either.

    Eddie Kingston needs to get into better shape for the top of the card, he doesn't have Kevin Owens or Foleys stamina for a 20 min main event. Also as awesome as he is on the mic, his wrestling skills needs sharping up, some of that is he gets sloppy when tired.

    WWE do it on the rare occasion, but by and large they pretend the competition doesn't exist. I know its 30 years ago, but think how much better Flair could have been booked coming in with the WCW title. Just don't see anything bush league about it, its more stupid to pretend the biggest wrestling company doesn't exist, When AEW they mention every other company out there and work with them too. Think Tony's end game is to do a show with WWE, probably have to wait for Vince to pass on before it happens.

    WWE brainwashed everyone into thinking you don't mention the competition, AEW doesn't pretend the other company's don't exist. Think it's fine and adds to the story they telling, it's going to be a big part of MJF story when his contract up and he's using it to get heat.
