As seen on this week's WWE RAW broadcast, The Authority gave Randy Orton the night off and "ordered" him to go on vacation. Orton followed up the storyline on Twitter as he tweeted a photo of himself by a pool and said he wished he could be at RAW. For what it's worth, we're told Orton was backstage at RAW and was written off the show after creative re-writes during the afternoon hours on Monday. The photo Orton posted is an older one that he apparently had on his phone.
Also on RAW, Cody Rhodes teased that he has a new tag-team partner that will face Goldust next week on RAW. Cody noted that the partner is someone he's never seen before and that will "magnify the magnificence that is Goldust.". NXT talent Tyler Breeze seems to fit that mold? Ted DiBiase Jr. has also been rumored as we reported earlier today.
ORIGINAL: Goldust had fans speculating that former WWE Superstar Ted DiBiase Jr. may be the next tag-team partner that Cody Rhodes chooses for him. When asked who Rhodes might pick for Goldust's partner this week, Goldust replied by saying that was "the million dollar question."
As noted, the idea is that Goldust will continue to lose these matches leading to Cody Rhodes claiming he's been the "weak link" all along. This will lead to the long rumored Cody Rhodes vs. Goldust feud, possibly at SummerSlam.
