WWE: Details on Goldust’s Release

F4WOnline.com is reporting that, following the surprising release of WWE Producer and legend Goldust (Dustin Runnels) a couple of weeks ago, details have come out on what exactly got the former Intercontinental Champion fired.

At the April 24 SmackDown tapings (which aired on April 27), Goldust reportedly came up with a spot for the match between Darren Young & Titus O’Neil and Yoshi Tatsu & Ezekiel Jackson. The spot saw Titus O’Neil lift Yoshi Tatsu up into a powerbomb position as Darren Young came off of the top rope (similar to the Legion of Doom’s Doomsday Device), but the move resulted in Tatsu landing awkwardly on his head and neck. When the WWE aired SmackDown, there was a quick camera cut that looked to conceal the uncomfortable impact of the maneuver. Those in attendance at the tapings said the botched move looked even worse live than it did on television.

Do you think that Goldust should have been released for coming up with this spot? Post your comments in the box below.
