Resplendant Dreams Shattered!
Goldust was released from his WWE contract last weekend.

Runnels began his backstage work on July 11th 2011.

Clearly, all of the above enforced the endeavour.

Goldust has been moved to WWE.com's Alumni section.
One thing is clear, Goldust's entrance was the best ever in Wrestling which can never be matched and will be sorely missed, though his entro was constantly cut down later on due to time constraints.
