To be fair, Goldust wasn't the first to work either a gay character or a character that used sexuality to play mind games in the WWE. Adrian Adonis did it when he was Adorable, the Beverly Brothers did it to some extent, The Genius unofficially did it, not to mention going back even further with Gorgeous George or other companies like with Adrian Street.

I'm neither agreeing nor disagreeing with Rude being included though.
