Jump forward 11 years and Goldust's "coming out" was looked at as a babyface move. Okay, so it was a tease, as Goldust really just "came out" as Dustin Runnels. I think they were trying to capitalize on all the hype of Ellen DeGeneres's "coming out" which was all over the media, at the time.
If they get hyper-sensitive, they'll also have to edit out some commentary on matches featuring Brutus Beefcake in 1985 and The Genius in 89-91.
