"WWE has come to an agreement on the release of Goldust (Dustin Runnels) as of today, June 14, 2006. WWE wishes Dustin the best in all future endeavors."

Although not much is known about the release right now, many have found the timing to be very interesting as Dustin is heavily featured on the 3-disc DVD honoring his father "The American Dream" Dusty Rhodes.
