WWE announced this week that Stephen Amell would team up with Adrian Neville to take on Stardust and Wade Barrett at Summerslam. There were those backstage that were actually hoping that Goldust would be able to return in time to team up with his little brother. The belief was that the bizarre tandem would help intrigue the mainstream media attention that Amell is surely to bring.

In a very classy move, WWE has announced that they will be airing an hour long special tribute to Dusty Rhodes after Monday Night Raw.

It looks like we will not be seeing Goldust on the road with WWE over the summer months. He will be at home rehabbing from the shoulder surgery that he will be undergoing this week. He had an MRI earlier in the week to determine if it was something that he could work through. Dustin Rhodes also revealed that he could be out for as long as four months. Fortunately for the front office, the former Intercontinental Champion was not involved in a story.

Even though he has long maintained that he is not ready to retire as an active in ring performer for WWE just yet, Goldust may be forced into doing that because of some shoulder issues that he has been experiencing lately. It got bad enough to where he needed to go have an MRI to see how bad the damage is. If surgery is needed and a long rehabilitation process is required, then he might just opt to move to a front office position soon.

Everyone knows that Bill DeMott will not be the coach on Tough Enough next season. Steve Austin has refused to have any involvement with WWE at the moment. The show is definitely going to take place, so a coach will be needed. Through social media, Goldust has expressed a desire to fill that role. He is said to be transitioning from an in ring career to that of a trainer very soon, so this would be quite fitting for both sides.

While he still continues to deny the retirement rumors, the belief is that Goldust will be making the transition from active in ring performer to being a trainer. He will definitely stick around with WWE once he is done on the main roster. Lately, the people backstage have been talking about him being moved down to NXT to become one of the trainers there. Dustin Rhodes has long stated that he looks forward to that chapter in his life.

Fans who put too much emphasis on winning and losing are under the belief that this is the end of the road for Rusev because he was buried by John Cena at Wrestlemania. As Jim Ross has repeatedly tried to explain, that's not how things work in professional wrestling. WWE is already building the Russian sympathizer back up. He was given a squash match against Goldust on Monday Night Raw, and a winning streak is expected to follow.

When they say that WWE contacts everyone to chip in and help during Wrestlemania week, they mean everyone. Tamina Snuka has resurfaced this week. She did a promotional appearance at the San Francisco 49ers museum with Goldust, Jack Swagger and Lilian Garcia. For those that are not aware, Tamina has been on the sidelines for the last several months because she tore her ACL. He return to television is expected soon.
