Shortly after he announced on Monday Night Raw that he was taking time off to have surgery, rumors sprung up that Daniel Bryan did a lot of damage to his neck by doing the flying headbutt off of the forklift on Kane at Extreme Rules 2014.

Another match being penciled in for Extreme Rules 2014 is Cody Rhodes vs Goldust.

As many people saw on Monday Night Raw, the feud between John Cena and Bray Wyatt is set to continue, despite the two of them working matches at Wrestlemania 30 and Extreme Rules 2014.

Despite picking up a win over R Truth and Xavier Woods at Extreme Rules 2014, WWE is still choosing to remove Alexander Rusev from the Hulu broadcast of Monday Night Raw.

May 6, 2014
While the performers avoided major injuries at Extreme Rules 2014, Rob Van Dam did get beat up a bit, thanks largely to his closing segment with Antonio Cesaro. The former world heavyweight champion suffered cuts and bruises to his face after crashing down on to a trash can while doing his signature Five Star Frog Splash finishing move.

Since Kane was booked so strong in defeat at Extreme Rules 2014, rumors immediately spread that the veteran was going to be receiving a rematch against Daniel Bryan for the WWE Championship at Payback 2014. Those rumors may be proven to be true really quick, as management is said to be leaning towards doing a Buried Alive match between the two.

WWE has a long history of doing things on screen that are designed to capture the interest of the mainstream media. The company succeeded in doing just that at Extreme Rules 2014 with the use of Vladimir Putin on the screen. It was designed to generate heel heat for Alexander Rusev and Lana. The Washington Post actually wrote a brief piece about the segment, so word should be spreading soon.
May 5, 2014
Those that watched Extreme Rules 2014 last night noticed a huge character change for Alexander Rusev. His manager Lana announced to the live audience that the big brute is now from Russia instead of Bulgaria. WWE also showed a picture of Russian president Vladimir Putin on the screen to generate further heel heat. Management wants to capitalize on the real life issues that the US currently has with Russia.

Over the last couple of weeks, Wade Barrett has picked up support from the audience thanks to his catchphrase. He also had a big fan backstage in Vince McMahon.

May 5, 2014
When WWE was scripting the finish to the big six man tag team match between the Shield and Evolution at Extreme Rules 2014, they wanted to give fans something to remember. They also wanted things to make sense. In order to clear the ring for Roman Reigns and Batista, someone came up with the idea for the remaining four guys to fight in the stands. In order to explain why they never went back to the ring, WWE had Seth Rollins hurling into Triple H, Randy Orton and Dean Ambrose from the balcony in the stands.

While management has expressed some concerns backstage about the lackluster reactions that she has been receiving from the live audiences, WWE had no intentions of swapping the Divas Championship from Paige to Tamina Snuka at Extreme Rules 2014.

At WWE Battleground 2014, Miz won the battle royal to become the new Intercontinental Champion. Sheamus is the reigning United States Heavyweight Champion. The two of them are feuding. That has led to rumors of a title unification match taking place at Summerslam 2014. The belief is that WWE really wants to stack up this pay per view to build momentum for the upcoming subscription rush for the WWE Network.
July 21, 2014
It looks like WWE has changed their minds and will not be doing a quick feud between Miz and Chris Jericho after all. The former world champions were penciled for a brief program together, and the seeds were even planted when both made their returns simultaneously on Monday Night Raw a couple of weeks ago. Miz is now being paired up with Sheamus, while Jericho was moved immediately into a feud with Bray Wyatt.
July 15, 2014
There could be one less championship in WWE after the next pay per view. Rumors are floating around heavily that Sheamus could be the one to win the battle royal to become the new Intercontinental Champion. He is already the reigning United States Heavyweight Champion. A title unification would enable WWE writers to have one less thing to worry about, especially since neither belt has been in the spotlight much lately.
July 9, 2014
Even though he is the current reigning United States Heavyweight Champion, Sheamus has not been given an actual feud to work with. While there are speculations going around that he is upset with WWE for not giving him an official program, those backstage are saying that he is fine with things for now. Management continues to utilize him on television each week, and he more often than not is given a spot on the pay per view events.
July 8, 2014
Earlier in the year, WWE had plans on doing a heel turn for Sheamus, in order to bring a little more life back into his stale character. The company even attempted the move on television, but it was botched and the majority of fans did not realize that it had taken place. Rumors going around now is that WWE has completely scrapped the idea. Sheamus will continue to work as a baby face US champion until they can decide on something for him to do.
July 6, 2014
A lot of action took place in the main event of Money in the Bank 2014.

June 29, 2014
During a recent interview, Konnan revealed some dirt on the real life backstage fight between Sheamus and Hunico. Konnan stated that Sheamus had started the incident by being disrespectful towards the masked performer backstage. He also stated that Sheamus threw the first punch, but ended up losing to the current Sin Cara. Some are speculating that Konnan is just being biased towards Hunico, and the facts are a bit skewed.
June 24, 2014
Since his feud with John Cena cannot go on forever, fans have naturally wondered who WWE was going to have Bray Wyatt feuding against next. There hasn't been any clear indications on Monday Night Raw or Smackdown as to who he will transition into a program with, but rumors are floating around right now that it could be Sheamus. The two of them are scheduled to work against one another on an upcoming tour of Australia, so that could be what WWE has in mind.
June 20, 2014
Now that he is done filming his movie, the Miz is expected to be back on Monday Night Raw this week.

June 9, 2014
There have been sparse rumors over the last year that WWE was going to do a heel turn with the Miz, and it looks like that might be happening soon. While working a live event in Wisconsin over the weekend, Miz did a match against Sheamus. The former world heavyweight champion even cut a heel promo, which is viewed by many as practice before doing it on television.
June 8, 2014
Despite being in the airplane spin for quite a few rotations, Sheamus was able to capture the victory over Antonio Cesaro, who had Paul Heyman with him at ringside, at Payback 2014 by surprising his opponent with a small package. With the win, Sheamus retains the United States Heavyweight Championship and will more than likely be placed in another feud by WWE tomorrow.
June 1, 2014
At one point in time, WWE had plans to put the Intercontinental Championship around the waist of Antonio Cesaro. However, those plans were dropped and the belt was given to Wade Barrett instead. Since management still wants to push Cesaro, there is a very good chance that he ends up capturing the United States Heavyweight Championship from Sheamus at Payback 2014 tomorrow night.
May 31, 2014
Following a botched heel turn, it looks like WWE might be attempting the move again with Sheamus. The United States Heavyweight Champion is rumored to be moving into a feud with the returning Miz after his Payback 2014 match against Antonio Cesaro. Since Miz is still a baby face, there is a very good chance that WWE will try to do the heel turn with Sheamus again.
May 30, 2014
In a rather interesting bit of news, the much rumored heel turn for Sheamus has already happened. When the United States Heavyweight Champion kicked Dean Ambrose during the battle royal on Monday Night Raw, that was designed as a heel turn. However, since very few fans picked up on that, WWE is now coming up with a plan to solidify that move.
May 10, 2014
Over the last couple of weeks, WWE fans have witnessed Wade Barrett winning the Intercontinental Championship and Sheamus winning the United States Heavyweight Championship. A big reason why WWE went that route is because of the upcoming tour of Europe, as both performers are still quite popular on that continent.
