In case you missed Monday Night Raw this week, Goldust approached R Truth backstage and asked him in his own creepy way to form a tag team. This is actually an idea that WWE has been discussing, as neither of the veteran performers have been doing anything on a consistent basis. Truth has been utilized for the occasional quick laugh, while Dustin Rhodes has been mostly an afterthought since returning from his long injury absence.

For those of you that are wondering, Christian is still under contract with WWE. The former world heavyweight champion has been sidelined for quite some time because of injury concerns, and there is a very good chance that he will never wrestle against for World Wrestling Entertainment. The man legally known as Jay Reso is still making money from the company but not nearly as much as it would be if he were actually on tour.

Since 2016 began, Paige has yet to work a match. It has now been revealed that WWE is keeping her out of the ring because they want to make sure that she is fully recovered from the concussion that she recently suffered. The popular diva has been telling fans that it is not a major injury but management really wants to make sure that performers are healthy enough before clearing them for a return.

Since John Cena is out with an injury, WWE is lacking in star power for Wrestlemania. There are talks that Randy Orton might be convinced to try to come back early so that he can add his name to the big pay per view. Orton doesn't draw as much as Cena, but he is better than the majority of the other guys on the World Wrestling Entertainment roster. His presence will definitely be needed that weekend.

Since Sin Cara is out with a shoulder injury, WWE needed someone for Kalisto to team with during the live events. Management opted to go with El Torito in that role. The two of them worked matches against Los Matadores. The belief is that World Wrestling Entertainment basically went with the choice that would give the children in the audience something to pop for. This tandem is unlikely to be permanent.

While it wasn't a very well known thing, Konnor was on the sidelines with what is believed to be a jaw injury of some sort. The Ascensions member recently made his return to WWE and is back on the road again. The belief is that he should be back on Monday Night Raw soon. Management isn't interested in pushing the tandem, however, so he might not be back on television right away.

Since she has not worked a televised match in a while, rumors started floating around that Sasha Banks had an undisclosed injury. The WWE diva decided to respond to those allegations personally. Through social media, Sasha bemoaned the existence of such rumors, which implies that she is healthy enough to work matches. No word yet on when Banks will be booked for another television match.

There is a silver lining to the shoulder injury suffered by Sin Cara. It has allowed WWE to give a small push to Kalisto. On Smackdown, the masked performer was given an upset victory over Alberto Del Rio. The move was done so that a title match can be set up between the two of them. In 2015, World Wrestling Entertainment gave him a little push when they had him in the tournament to crown a new world champion.

Since her husband, Brutus Magnus, has been sidelined with a serious injury, there are rumors that Mickie James could be working more dates on the independent wrestling circuit. Magnus is not going to be able to wrestle for several months. The belief is that Mickie might be more willing to sign a short term deal with WWE to work while her husband is recovering. No word yet on if the company has expressed interest.
