Kevin Nash
It has started to become a bit of a tradition for Kevin Nash to host a Wrestlemania party each year in the host city.

His co hosts for the evening will be former WWE diva Melina Perez and former TNA Knockout Rosita. Zema Ion will be the DJ for the evening.
September 3, 2014
Batista
Due to his new found success in Hollywood, Batista is said to be holding all the cards when it comes to his career with WWE. Guardians of the Galaxy did extremely well, so he does not feel the need to return to professional wrestling. Rumors have surfaced that the former world heavyweight champion would only be interested in doing another match if it meant that he would receive a huge pay day at Wrestlemania 31.
August 31, 2014
Hulk Hogan
As a few people are already aware, Hulk Hogan has been generating some hype recently by teasing fans that he wants to make a return to the WWE ring for one final match. The former world heavyweight champion has teased that he wants to work against John Cena. Well, some fuel has been added to that fire, as Cena himself is now starting to tease the match as well. The belief is that the two of them are simply promoting the upcoming Wrestlemania 31 pay per view.
August 30, 2014
Sting
During a recent interview, Sting was asked who he would like to work a match with if the Undertaker is unable to wrestle again. The former world heavyweight champion, who is not under contract to WWE as an in ring performer at the moment, stated that he would love to work with Triple H. A match between the two is possible at Wrestlemania 31.
August 23, 2014
Randy Orton
There is a little bit of a dilemma backstage in WWE right now when it comes to the Roman Reigns push. Management does not want to put the title on him just yet because they feel that it would be more effective to let him do it at Wrestlemania 31. However, he has gone pretty high up the card already, as Randy Orton is near the top of the ladder. Management will have to figure out what to do with him over the next several months.
August 22, 2014
Brock Lesnar
Reports are surfacing that there is some backstage heat between Vince McMahon and Triple H at the moment over the main event of Wrestlemania 31. McMahon wants Brock Lesnar to defend the title against the Rock, as he feels that those two guys would produce the biggest draw of a match for WWE. HHH, however, wants the company to elevate Roman Reigns by having him challenge Lesnar.
August 18, 2014
Batista
In another sign that he is moving closer to a full jump to Hollywood, Batista recently discussed his wishes for a retirement match. The former WWE champion would like to do another big match at Wrestlemania against Triple H, who he feels is still the best worker in the business. Management might be willing to do that at Wrestlemania 31 to capitalize on his name value being increased because of Guardians of the Galaxy.
August 15, 2014
Sting
While the event is still several months away and nothing has been decided yet, Sting is already planting the seeds for a legendary match at Wrestlemania 31. The former WCW champion wants the Undertaker, and he is not shy about stating that publicly. Sting told the Mirror that he has already informed WWE of his wish for next April, so it is now up to Vince McMahon and Undertaker to decide if it will happen or not.
July 16, 2014
Vince McMahon
While the company publicly states that they do not view any wrestling promotion as competition, the actions being taken by WWE at Wrestlemania 31 tell a different story. Vince McMahon and his staff have worked diligently to prevent independent wrestling companies from being able to do shows in the San Francisco and San Jose areas during the same weekend as their big event. A lot of the buildings in the area have agreed to boycott independent promoters from renting the place.
July 10, 2014
Rock
It is no secret that WWE would love for the Rock to be the centerpiece attraction at Wrestlemania 31. However, the possibility of that happening is becoming more and more unclear by the day. The studios have decided to move the release date of Fast and Furious 7, which features Rock in a big role, up a bit. It will now be shown in the theaters a few days after Wrestlemania. That means that the Rock will be needed to travel the world to do promotion for the film. His availability to WWE is in question.
July 10, 2014
Brock Lesnar
While most wrestling fans would love to see him working a match at Wrestlemania 31, Undertaker is actually said to be quite fine with retirement. He didn't make the decision to drop the winning streak to Brock Lesnar, but he reportedly does not mind ending his career on the losing end of a match. WWE wants him back, but the ball is entirely in the court of the Undertaker. For what it's worth, the legend is still staying in shape and working out.
July 5, 2014
Roman Reigns
While it's several months away and a lot can change during that time, rumors are floating around that Roman Reigns is being penciled in to win Royal Rumble 2015. WWE really wants him to be a main event performer, and being the last man standing in the 30 man battle royal just might be the way to make that happen. The move would put him on track to headline Wrestlemania 31.
July 5, 2014
Rock
While it may be hard for a lot of fans to fathom, WWE may not be able to afford to bring the Rock back into the mix for Wrestlemania 31. The company is far from broke, but they have to be wiser about their spending since the valuation of the company has taken a severe dive. Rock is far from cheap since he has great name value. The two sides might not be able to come to an agreement that would see the legendary performer returning to WWE for another stint.
July 3, 2014
Brock Lesnar
While it is still quite a long time away, WWE currently has plans penciled in for Roman Reigns at Wrestlemania 31. The company wants him to challenge Brock Lesnar at the event, and they're going to heavily push the fact that Reigns is going up against the only man that has ever defeated Undertaker at the biggest pay per view event of the year. The winning moment is supposed to cement Reigns as the top star in WWE.
July 2, 2014
Rock
Since he is easily one of the biggest stars that professional wrestling ever produced, the Rock remains the top choice for WWE when it comes to the Hall of Fame induction ceremony at Wrestlemania 31. However, the company has now focused on Sting as a potential candidate to take the top spot in the class next year in case they are unable to convince Rock to participate in the event.
June 17, 2014
Undertaker
In a depressing bit of news, Undertaker is said to be very pessimistic about being able to work another match for WWE again. When asked about Wrestlemania 31, the legendary performer stated that it was highly unlikely to happen because his body is quite banged up. While fans are urging him to do another match, Undertaker has to take his health and family into considerations.
June 5, 2014
Vince McMahon
To combat all the rumors that have been swirling online about the game being delayed, WWE has announced that WWE 2K15 will be available to the public in late October. It will be available in America on October 28, while international fans will have the game in their hands by October 31. There had been some speculations that Vince McMahon and WWE was going to delay the game until Wrestlemania 31.
May 21, 2014
Vince McMahon
While there are rumors that the company is delaying the release date of WWE 2K15 until Wrestlemania 31, management has not informed retailers of that decision yet. Various stores, both online and offline, are still informing their customers that the video game will be coming out sometime in October. Vince McMahon and WWE might opt to go the traditional route and release the game in the fall.
May 21, 2014
Kevin Nash
Earlier this month, rumors surfaced that Mickie James and Rikishi were candidates to join the Rock at the hall of fame induction ceremony during Wrestlemania 31. Another name that WWE has reportedly been discussing is Kevin Nash, even though the former world heavyweight champion has been vocally against being inducted.
May 17, 2014
Vince McMahon
Change is a tough pill for some people to swallow, so expect to see a lot of professional wrestling fans complaining this fall if the upcoming WWE 2K15 video game does not get released around the same time as usual. Vince McMahon and company are said to be leaning towards pushing the release date back all the way until Wrestlemania 31 to capitalize on the momentum that the company has during that time of year.
May 14, 2014
Michelle McCool
Rumors are floating around that there is more to the story of Summer Rae and Layla El teaming up than what WWE tells us on television. Many are saying that the move was in response to Velvet Sky and Angelina Love being back together in TNA. Management wanted to reunite LayCool, but since Michelle McCool was not interested in making a full time return, they opted to go with Summer Rae, as the two of them share a physical resemblance.
July 19, 2014
Gail Kim
For those that missed Impact Wrestling this week, Gail Kim is the new TNA Knockouts Champion after defeating Angelina Love in a match. Rumors are floating around that the company made the title switch because they want to use the belt to enhance an upcoming program between Gail and the returning Taryn Terrell. Some feel that this will lead to TNA giving the belt to Taryn before the end of the year.

June 21, 2014
Angelina Love
One of the reasons why TNA decided to put Angelina Love and Velvet Sky back together again was because they have been consistently able to draw in strong numbers for Impact Wrestling. This past episode, however, drew really low numbers. While some may be jumping to conclusions, it is being said that TNA officials are simply chalking it up as an anomaly.
June 12, 2014
Angelina Love
While she has been back with the company for a bit of time now, Angelina Love has not been working live events for TNA. She revealed on Twitter that she is set to start touring for the company next weekend, when TNA holds a couple of shows in Maryland. No word yet on what she will be doing on these shows, but there's a good chance that she will be working with longtime partner and friend Velvet Sky.
June 2, 2014
Angelina Love
The TNA Knockouts website has undergone a bit of a makeover, with the company making some modifications to the layout and adding some new performers. A quick glance at the site shows that TNA now has nine Knockouts on the roster. Some new pictures of ODB, Christy Hemme, Velvet Sky, Taryn Terrell, Gail Kim, Santana Garrett, Angelina Love, Madison Rayne and Brooke Tessmacher have been uploaded.
May 31, 2014
Mickie James
As some of you already know, former WWE and TNA star Luke Gallows recently got married. CM Punk, AJ Lee, Zack Ryder, Curt Hawkins, Mike Knox, Bully Ray, Angelina Love, Samoa Joe, Mickie James, Matt Hardy, Reby Sky, Velvet Sky and Colt Cabana were among those in attendance at the wedding.
May 20, 2014
Taryn Terrell
While it is almost all but certain that she will be making a return to the company this summer, there are also rumors floating around that TNA is going to give Taryn Terrell a huge push when she does come back. Expect to see her being thrown into a feud with Angelina Love for the Knockouts Championship. TNA has always been pretty high on her work, especially during the period before she left after becoming pregnant.

Zack Ryder

May 14, 2014
Angelina Love
With Angelina Love making her return to TNA after several years away from the company, that has sparked the itch in another former Knockout. Taylor Wilde, who was a former champion in the company, wants to return to TNA. No word yet on whether or not Dixie Carter is interested in a reunion, as the company has been rather busy signing performers as of late.
May 6, 2014
Madison Rayne
At TNA Sacrifice 2014, Angelina Love was able to steal the Knockouts Championship from Madison Rayne, thanks to plenty of help from Velvet Sky, who was physically involved throughout the match. Velvet distracted the referee in the final moments, which enabled Angelina to spray Madison with hair spray to get the pin fall victory.

His talents were so good that he caught the attention of a university in Texas. He parlayed his success in college to an NFL career, doing a brief stint with the Washington Redskins.
May 1, 2014
Bobby Heenan
While he was easily one of the best overall performers during his generation, Tully Blanchard was a bit of a headache backstage. Shortly before he decided to leave WWE, Blanchard ended up failing a drug test because of cocaine, so management had no choice but to fire him. Bobby Heenan had to replace him in the match at Survivor Series 1989.
May 1, 2014
Pedro Morales
While he does not get featured as much by WWE nowadays, Pedro Morales will forever have a place in company history. The Puerto Rican star was the first guy to have won the WWE title, world tag team championship and the Intercontinental Championship. Morales even held the WWE and tag team championship, which he won with Bob Backlund, at the same time.
April 29, 2014
Harley Race
For a young professional wrestler, being able to work with a big time star could be what helps to spring board your career into the next level. A memorable feud with the legendary Harley Race was how Hercules Hernandez managed to make a name for himself during the territorial days. It was shortly after that feud that he found himself being signed by the NWA.
April 28, 2014
Scott Norton
Prior to becoming a star in professional wrestling, Scott Norton was a star in the arm wrestling world. The former WCW star won at least thirty championships, including four national titles. He also traveled overseas for competition, including a life changing one in Japan. Norton also had enough recognition to be cast in Over the Top, a Sylvester Stallone movie about arm wrestling.
April 28, 2014
Ole Anderson
While he will forever associated with the famous wrestling last name, Ole Anderson is actually not an Anderson at all. His real name is Alan Rogowski. He simply adopted the Ole Anderson name to connect with the audience who were already familiar with Gene Anderson, his story line brother. Another interesting point of interest is that Ole Anderson is a play on the word oleander, a poisonous plant.
April 28, 2014
Katsuyori Shibata
Back in 2000, the world of professional wrestling was saddened by the death of Masakazu Fukuda. While working a tournament match, Fukuda was hit by a flying elbow drop from Katsuyori Shibata.

April 28, 2014
Sid Vicious
Prior to becoming a star in WCW, Sid Vicious managed to pull off a pretty amazing feat while working for New Japan. Even though he was an unknown, Vicious was able to convince the promoters in Japan to give him a shot at the legendary Tatsumi Fujinami and the IWGP Heavyweight Championship. He lost, of course, but was able to gain some recognition in the late 1980s by being in the match.
April 27, 2014
Stephanie McMahon
For as long as she has been on television, Stephanie McMahon has been a topic of interest for professional wrestling fans. Many WWE fans are quite enamored with her, so it comes as no surprise that her bra size is routinely discussed. During an interview once, Stephanie revealed that she received breast implants and now has a bra size of D cup.
April 24, 2014
Stephanie McMahon
Since she has been around WWE for a very long time, wrestling fans have been wondering how old Stephanie McMahon is. She was born on September 24, 1976, which makes her 37 right now. Due to her age and the fact that the kids are getting a little older, Stephanie recently decided to scale back on her responsibilities within WWE. She is no longer in charge of the creative department.
April 22, 2014
Lance Storm
The boring gimmick that Lance Storm received while working in WWE was actually a little jab at internet wrestling fans. Many viewed him as a guy that was just too boring to be a star. In actuality, though, Storm has a pretty good personality and a sense of humor backstage. WWE went with the gimmick in order to try to something to see if it would give him momentum.
April 13, 2014
Kamala
Back when he was a teenager in Mississippi, Kamala was a bit of a thief. He became known in town as a burglar who came from a poor family. The local police did not want to arrest him, so they heavily suggested that he leave town to avoid any further complications. The future WWE star opted to flee to the state of Florida, where he made money by picking fruit.
April 11, 2014
Bobby Heenan
In a little known fact in professional wrestling, Bobby Heenan was originally scheduled to manage Jesse Ventura. Vince McMahon had lured him away from the AWA for that particular role. However, Ventura had blood clots in his lungs, which was due to his stint in the Vietnam War, and was forced to retire as an in ring performer. WWE moved Heenan on to other wrestlers.

April 9, 2014
Arn Anderson
Even though the truth has been out there for several years now, a lot of wrestling fans are still under the belief that Ole Anderson and Arn Anderson are brothers in real life. They're not. The relationship was created for their on screen characters to help Arn connect with the audience quicker because Ole was already established in the territory.
April 4, 2014
Uncle Elmer
Back during the 1980s, one of the most talked about segment in professional wrestling was when Uncle Elmer got married on national television. It was an actual wedding, as the performer was really wanting to marry his longtime girlfriend. When he approached Vince McMahon about it, the promoter loved the idea and decided to make it a draw for WWE.
April 4, 2014
Bobby Eaton
One of the biggest mysteries in professional wrestling involves Dennis Condrey and his decision to walk away from the Midnight Express. When asked about the situation, Bobby Eaton said that his former tag team partner basically left without saying a word to him for two years. Condrey reportedly did not inform Jim Cornette or the NWA, either.
