Apparently, the former world tag team champion suffered some sort of spinal injury during his match with Samoa Joe. He was sent to the hospital and may have had surgery.

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.

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.

Considering how bad the injury is, Jeff Hardy underwent surgery today to repair a broken leg that was caused by a dirt bike accident. The situation has caused a bit of a headache for the creative department in TNA. He was one half of the tag team champions, so the stories will need to be modified. A decision has to be made on what to do with those championship belts. The belief is that Matt Hardy will be forced to vacate them.
