Camacho
When WWE announced the arrival of the Slam City cartoon series earlier this week, only guys from the main rosters were included as characters. A fan decided to go the extra step by drawing Sasha Banks, Camacho, Mojo Rawley and CJ Parker as characters for the show. Management has no intentions of including WWE NXT stars as of this moment, though.

Alberto Del Rio
When WWE announced their new Slam City cartoon, the characters announced were John Cena, Mark Henry, Rey Mysterio, Kane, Sheamus, Alberto Del Rio, Dolph Ziggler and Randy Orton. The company is expected to expand that with more performers. Stephanie McMahon recently revealed that the Rock will become a character soon.

CM Punk
Since the company has started to believe that he will not be returning anytime soon, WWE has started taking steps to remove CM Punk from existence. The script for the upcoming Flintstones movie is being redone, so that his character can be removed. Management wanted to remove him from Slam City, but the project is too far along to do so.

Vince McMahon
Expect to see WWE heavily promoting the new Slam City cartoon over the next few weeks, as Vince McMahon really has high hopes for the series. The belief is that it should generate even more interest in from children into the product, and the hope is that WWE will have new fans because of the animated series, which in turn would help with advertisers.

Alexander Rusev
While there are still discussions on a title unification program, there are now people backstage in WWE that are pushing for Sheamus to drop the United States Heavyweight Championship to Alexander Rusev. Some feel that it would give he and Lana a bit more heel heat. Plus, they can stall his push a bit by having him defend the belt against lower level opponents.
July 31, 2014
Sting
Despite years and years of rumored negotiations between the two sides, it has now been revealed that Sting and Vince McMahon have never met in person. That will be changing soon. Through his deals with Mattel and WWE 2K15, Sting is required to be in Los Angeles during Summerslam 2014 takes place. The belief is that Sting and McMahon will finally sit down and talk about a potential wrestling contract.
July 31, 2014
Scott Hall
Reports are surfacing about an incident between Scott Hall and a terminally ill kid with brain cancer at a wrestling convention, and it is making the former WWE and WCW star look like a really bad human being. It is being said that Hall refused to sign a birthday card for the 6 year old boy, who may only have a little bit of time left to live. Several other wrestlers took the time to do the kind deed for the kid.
July 31, 2014
Vince Russo
Yesterday, Vince Russo took to Twitter to reveal to fans that he opted to quit TNA instead of taking an extended leave of absence. There are now reports surfacing that John Gaburick, the former WWE executive who is now in charge of TNA backstage, actually called and fired Russo. No word yet on which side is telling the truth, but a lot of fans have already opted to assume that Russo is lying.
July 31, 2014
Bo Dallas
When Bo Dallas was defeated by R Truth on Monday Night Raw this week, more than a few eyebrows were raised because the streak was ended in such an irrelevant manner. Rumors are floating around now that WWE opted to do this because they did not want to have another streak in the company now that Brock Lesnar has made his return. Management wants the streak emphasis to be on Lesnar beating Undertaker at Wrestlemania 30.
July 30, 2014
Vince McMahon
While the official WWE Network subscribers count will not be revealed until tomorrow, there are already speculations that the company will be doing a massive layoff due to what is predicted to be lower than expected numbers. It is being said that Vince McMahon will be releasing close to ten percent of his workforce in an attempt to appease the investors.
July 30, 2014
Jeff Jarrett
Since his contract with WWE has now officially ended, rumors about Jim Ross and his future in professional wrestling have started heating up again. Since the longtime commentator does not want to replace Taz or Mike Tenay in TNA, much of the speculations has been geared towards him joining up with Jeff Jarrett in Global Force Wrestling. Interest within the industry towards the new promotion has grown since Jarrett has been able to secure several deals across the globe.
July 29, 2014
Dixie Carter
Rumors are floating around right now that Vince McMahon would be interested in purchasing the TNA library to add to his WWE Network. It could simply just be all speculation right now, as the company has been focused on cutting back their spending because of how much money has been lost over the last several months. Obviously, no negotiations have taken place since Dixie Carter is still trying to find a new television deal for Impact Wrestling.
July 29, 2014
Alexander Rusev
An idea being discussed for Summerslam 2014 right now is to do a flag match between Jack Swagger and Alexander Rusev. WWE is trying to keep this program going for a bit longer because they don't have a lot of other people that Rusev can work with. By doing a flag match, Swagger can win without Rusev being pinned. That would enable WWE to extend the feud for at least another month.
July 29, 2014
Big E Langston
Rumors are floating around that WWE really does not have all their plans in place for that new stable featuring Xavier Woods, Kofi Kingston and Big E Langston. Several names, including R Truth, Titus ONeil and Mark Henry, have been mentioned as possible candidates to join the group, but none of that has been solidified. For the time being, the trio will continue to be vague on television.
July 29, 2014
Big E Langston
An interesting idea being floated around in WWE has Titus ONeil joining the stable that consists of Xavier Woods, Kofi Kingston and Big E Langston. Management really likes ONeil, as evident by the fact that he routinely gets sent out on public appearances for the company, but they do not believe that he can be pushed as a singles performer. Putting him in a stable helps to alleviate some of those concerns.
July 28, 2014
Bray Wyatt
Rumors are floating around right now that Chris Jericho is done with WWE after he finishes up his feud with Bray Wyatt. The return was designed to be a short term thing, as the former undisputed champion still has other business ventures that he wants to focus on. There are talks that Jericho could be convinced to stick around in WWE a bit longer if an interesting program can be created for him.
July 28, 2014
Cameron
It looks like WWE will be utilizing the relationship between Cameron and her boyfriend a bit more during the next season of Total Divas. The belief is that something drastic will happen, where the couple will either break up or do a wedding. The heel turn and split from Naomi Knight was designed to put more attention into her character on the reality television show next season.
July 28, 2014
Steve Austin
Earlier in the month, Steve Austin made a comment about WWE being too scripted for his taste. While those comments would surely bring backstage heat on one of their mid card performers, it is being said that there is absolutely no heat towards Austin, as management knows that they might need him for business down the line.
July 28, 2014
Damien Sandow
Since he has shown a willingness to not only do what is asked of him but to actually put in great effort in doing so, Damien Sandow has been earning a good amount of praise backstage by his peers in WWE. They are impressed by the fact that he has not grown frustrated with the new gimmick. Unfortunately for Sandow, though, management does not feel that he deserves a real push at the moment.
July 28, 2014
Miz
There are still plans being discussed backstage in WWE to unify the United States Heavyweight Championship and the Intercontinental Championship in the near future. If management decides to go through with it, then Miz is the more likely candidate to hold the unified belt because he has a lot more momentum than Sheamus at this point in time.
July 28, 2014
Alexander Rusev
Alexander Rusev is posing a considerable problem for the WWE creative department nowadays. The staff was instructed to push him up the ladder, but they are now running out of options. His program with Jack Swagger has either ended or will end soon. Rusev cannot be placed into a program with someone lower on the card, and it's too soon for him to work against John Cena. Sheamus has been named as a possible opponent to help Rusev kill time.
July 27, 2014
Justin Gabriel
While he is a reliable performer who does not cause trouble backstage, Justin Gabriel was one of the candidates to be on the receiving end of a release from WWE when the company was doing budget cuts. He apparently has survived the cuts and will remain with the company for the time being. It is interesting to note that Gabriel has not been utilized on Monday Night Raw since last September.
July 27, 2014
Alex Riley
Since WWE was doing budget cuts left and right in order to reduce the millions of dollars that they're losing this year, several names were mentioned as possible candidates for a release. Alex Riley was once rumored to be someone on the chopping board, but it looks like the commentator has made the cut. Unless WWE decides to get rid of the kickoff shows, Riley should remain with the company.
July 26, 2014
Brock Lesnar
Rumors are swirling that the Undertaker was not supposed to have lost to Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania 30, thanks to some comments made by former WWE stars. Some are saying that he did not kick out of the pin attempt because he was legitimately knocked out from the move. Since the referees are instructed to go through with the count, there is a possibility that it may be true.
