They are removing any segments with Goldust wearing black face paint, even if it was just a case of Dustin Runnels deciding to switch up the face paint that night. For example, his segments with Vader on 11/10/1997 and 11/24/1997 are gone.
An exception to this is Survivor Series 1997. He appeared for his match in black paint, and it has not been cut.
But that was black face paint not anything related to black face or anything like that. He was a guy that wore gold and black. This just shows that there is zero understanding of context to this stuff. If that’s the case then crow sting will be missing for all of his run and Muta will be also be gone from WCW if how they’ve handled goldust is anything to go by. You’d think goldust and his character would be perfectly acceptable nowadays.
Goldust character would set people off today. He's a straight man who's a heel because he does homoerotic things...the crowd and announcers throw insults that are antigay at him...he turns face by announcing he's not gay.
I'm stunned they aren't completely eliminating the character to be honest.

Out of curiosity, has there been somebody out there who might be even crazier than us who has a list of all the edits done since the creation of the WWE Network?
I appreciate the work the FANs have done here and in that 84-page thread down below still I would prefer if there was a sort of list and not having to go through pages upon pages in a thread for a specific show.
