From Mike Johnson:

As I broke last night exclusively on my PWInsider.com Elite Hotline news update, Dusty Rhodes has left his position on the WWE creative team to head up working on the creative end of WWE's developmental system.

Rhodes will be responsible for character development and for scripting the weekly Florida Championship Wrestling TV show when it debuts on Tampa's CW network affiliate, similar to the position held by Jim Cornette and Paul Heyman during their tenures with Ohio Valley Wrestling.  FCW, run by Steve Keirn and Tom Prichard, is currently WWE's only developmental territory.

The move was seen as a good fit for Rhodes as it would keep him from having to travel on the road with the WWE creative team on a regular basis, put him back in his old stomping grounds of Florida and help him create a new crop of stars by meshing his own creative skills with knowledge of what WWE management wants by virtue of his creative team run. Rhodes had most recently been working on the ECW brand, which showed a marked improvement under his watch.

Developmental talents were informed recently of Rhodes' move.  Rhodes' new responsibilities are why he wasn't at Raw last night to take part in the Ric Flair retirement ceremony.

Good deal. 

Eventhough I a am Dusty fan, I will admit that the FCW show will probably be the Dusty Rhodes Show.

Could be a very good move.  Yeah Dusty got old but the first couple of years in Crockett were great.

Dusty and Vince seemed to have similar visions towards booking, sports entertainment and etc.  In that one shoot video, Dusty alluded to booking like making a movie.  At least he is somewhat on the same wavelength as Corporate.

Who does the training the in Florida for WWE?

Maybe I am dumb but how does Dusty working on Florida Championship Wrestling, knock him out of the box in terms of attending a wrestling show in Orlando?

At least they had the good sense to keep HOGAN out of that ceremony.
