* RageAgainstTheAuthor[=/=]RealLifeWritesThePlot: Dustin got tired of being Goldust at one point and tried to be a born-again Christian wrestler. (See above under FunWithAcronyms.) The gimmick sadly didn't take, in part [[ScrewedByTheNetwork because WWE]] didn't care and in part because it was just him in a t-shirt and blue jeans just preaching before matches. Even when Dustin went to WCW and TNA, he never tried (or they never let him try) the gimmick again.

** WhatCouldHaveBeen: The character was supposed to be the first openly gay wrestler, and was portrayed as one for about a month (his first major feud was sending love letters to [[Wrestling/ScottHall Razor Ramon]]). However, gay rights groups got upset over a gay person also being "evil," so [[Wrestling/TerriRunnels Marlena]] was introduced and it all became "mindgames."
