Goldust In Movie, Why WWE Use Sin Cara Gimmick, Striker Talks CM Punk

Goldust Movie Premiere

Goldust is running a contest on his Twitter where you can attend the premiere of a movie he starred in called Meet Me There.

After several years of sexual dysfunction, Ada and her boyfriend, Calvin travel to her hometown in rural Oklahoma in hopes of piecing together her fragmented childhood memories. They find their answers, but can they find their way back home?

Goldust plays the role of Preacher Woodward.

The premiere takes place on April 4th in New Orleans.

Why WWE Keep Using Sin Cara Gimmick

The reason why WWE have attempted to continue the Sin Cara gimmick with Hunico is because the gimmick is one of the best merchandise sellers among kids. John Cena, CM Punk and Daniel Bryan make up the top 3, with Randy Orton, Rey Mysterio, Sin Cara and Ultimate Warrior’s new merch following behind.

It’s not clear whether Hunico is receiving royalties for playing the gimmick.

Striker Says Nobody Knows Why Punk Left

Matt Striker told VOC Nation that there’s no real way to know what CM Punk is thinking and why he walked out on WWE:

I’ve known Punk since I started; he and I are good friends outside of wrestling. There’s no sense in trying to dive into someone’s head…you’re going to be wrong nine times out of ten anyway. Everyone has an opinion, but the only thing anyone knows (for sure) is what they read on the Internet, and none of the Internet pundits are walking around backstage; it’s all second and third hand information. The only person that knows for sure is (CM Punk).

Striker also discussed WWE always bringing in part-timers for Wrestlemania:

The whole view of the WWE is, ‘what is the stock doing today?’ That’s all anyone cares about. The Rock headlining Wrestlemania the last two years was a business decision and was about putting the most amount of money possible in people’s pockets. (Batista being involved) is (best for business). He’s going to be featured in a Marvel movie that’s going to be released right around Wrestlemania. He’s going to put new eyes on the product, which gets them to buy the product and buy the network, and the stock goes up and people make money.

On the WWE Network:

I think that the medium that the network is based on is interesting and unproven. Now there’s so much technology that you can watch your computer on your TV. WWE (has the chance) to catch lightning in a bottle. When MTV put on the Real World, everyone said it was a mistake, and now you can’t find a music video on MTV. I think WWE is going to do just fine. The original programming will carry the new viewer, and the classic stuff will carry the people who love wrestling.
