Brutus Magnus
"I'm as grateful to Sting as anybody in the wrestling business for the benefit he has had in my career. Steve is a great guy and very very smart and just a model citizen as far as the way he conducts himself and how much respect he commands. There are some people who seem to be obsessed with respect and seem to be obsessed with guys not showing them enough respect but Sting is a guy who has never had to pull any stunts, never had to bully anyone, never had to throw his weight around or pull rank; he commands respect. The same could be said about Kurt Angle." - Brutus Magnus discusses how Sting is backstage

Dolph Ziggler

Dolph Ziggler is still hoping to get cleared by the WWE medical staff, so that he can work Royal Rumble 2014. The former world heavyweight champion has not worked a televised match for WWE since January 6 because of a concussion.

January 24, 2014
CM Punk

There is a very good chance that we only have five more months of seeing CM Punk, as his contract with WWE expires in July of this year. The former heavyweight champion has openly talked about leaving the company on his own terms, so it will take some convincing from management to get him to sign a new deal.

January 22, 2014
Kharma

Kharma has been focusing much more on her health than she has at any point during her professional wrestling career, as the former TNA knockout is now doing the yoga program created by Diamond Dallas Page. She has lost a considerable amount of weight since leaving WWE.

R Truth
In a rather interesting move, Alexander Rusev has been removed from the Hulu broadcast of Monday Night Raw for the second week in a row. His debut match against Zack Ryder was omitted the previous week. He defeated Xavier Woods this week and assaulted R Truth afterwards. Apparently, WWE did not feel that was important enough to include on the Hulu version.

Sin Cara
A video from WWE Main Event of a match between Alexander Rusev, who made his in ring debut on Monday Night Raw this week against Zack Ryder, and Sin Cara. This segment was designed to give even further credibility to Rusev, who is expected to be booked in victories on television over the next couple of weeks.
April 11, 2014
Sami Zayn
Even though WWE is bringing up Bo Dallas, Alexander Rusev, Adam Rose and Paige, there are still plans from management to move Sami Zayn from the WWE NXT roster to the main one. There were talks that he was going to be kept in developmental, so that the program can have some depth and star power, but it looks like WWE is going all in now.
April 11, 2014
Alexander Rusev
Despite the company being very high on the guy, Alexander Rusev had his debut match removed from the Hulu broadcast of Monday Night Raw this week. He defeated Zack Ryder in a squash match, but WWE officials deemed it not important enough to show their fans on Hulu. This leads to a lot of questions about how strong of a push Rusev will receive.
April 8, 2014
Andre the Giant
According to online betting websites, Alexander Rusev is the heavy favorite to win the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal at Wrestlemania 30. WWE officials have been trying to think of a way to make his debut strong, and this could be how they kick start his push. Expect him to be featured on Monday Night Raw, where he might finally have a match.
April 6, 2014
Andre the Giant
Earlier this week, WWE announced the participants in the Andre the Giant battle royal that is taking place at Wrestlemania 30. The company left four open spots for surprise entrants and as a way to buy themselves time on making the decisions. A strong rumor is that Alexander Rusev will be taking one of those spots and be given a decent push in the match.
March 26, 2014
Alexander Rusev
During Monday Night Raw, Alexander Rusev was backstage and was awaiting instructions from the officials. However, management was unable to come up with anything creative for him, so plans on featuring him on television were scrapped for the evening. WWE did not want to do the same segment that they have been doing each week again.

Alexander Rusev
With the announcement of the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal at Wrestlemania 30, WWE has now created an opportunity for them to give a big debut to Alexander Rusev, the latest developmental wrestler to make the jump to the main roster. His name has been mentioned as one of the top candidates to win the match at the pay per view.
March 12, 2014
Evan Bourne
While he has been eager to make his return to the company, Evan Bourne does not appear to be much of a priority for WWE at this point. After Wrestlemania 30, the focus will be on pushing guys like Roman Reigns and Antonio Cesaro. Alexander Rusev is set to make his debut, so management will be focusing on him as well. Not a lot of room for Bourne in this scenario.
March 7, 2014
Alexander Rusev
Since the former world heavyweight champion does not have a program to work with right now, there are talks within WWE of having Big Show being the one to elevate the debuting Alexander Rusev. Management wants to give the developmental wrestler a nice push after Wrestlemania 30, and Show would be able to provide him with some credibility right off the bat.
March 7, 2014
Alexander Rusev
While the company will continue to promote him in interview segments, WWE does not plan on doing the debut match for Alexander Rusev until after Wrestlemania 30. The belief is that management wants it to be a big deal, and right now, he would simply be overshadowed by the stories that they are building towards the big pay per view.
February 27, 2014
Alexander Rusev
Some further tweaks are being made to the Alexander Rusev character before he makes his big splash in WWE, as management has decided to switch up his finishing move. He had been using the camel clutch, which has been utilized by heel foreigners for years now, but will now be switching to the side slam when he returns to television.
February 21, 2014
Alexander Rusev
Observant fans have noticed that Dolph Ziggler has been in the dog house with WWE management over the last year, and it looks like an address change is not in the works any time soon. The former world heavyweight champion not only was forced to work a dark match at the Smackdown taping, he also put over newcomer Alexander Rusev.
February 14, 2014
Alexander Rusev
While he is going to be portraying a big monster in WWE, Alexander Rusev is actually a normal guy outside the ring. The developmental wrestler was spotted recently at a Los Angeles Clippers game. This picture of he and Lana, who is being called up to the main roster as well, showed up on Twitter.
February 11, 2014
Alexander Rusev

When Alexander Rusev made his debut at Royal Rumble 2014, many were under the impression that it was a permanent call up to the main roster. However, it appears that management wants the developmental wrestler to have a little more seasoning by working in WWE NXT for a few more weeks.

January 31, 2014
Rikishi

Alexander Rusev, the developmental wrestler who made his debut at Royal Rumble 2014, was trained by Rikishi. His relationship with the former WWE star helped help progress in the industry a lot quicker than a lot of other guys who have tried to make it to the main roster.

Alexander Rusev

Rumors had persisted for several months that Alexander Rusev was next in line to be called up from developmental to the main roster in WWE, and the move took place during Royal Rumble 2014, where the big man was involved in the annual battle royale.
