Rumors are floating around now that there is some resentment towards Kevin Owens from the other wrestlers on the roster. The developmental wrestlers have backstage heat with him because he was promoted ahead of them and very quickly. Some main roster guys are upset because he was given an immediate push, which WWE doesn't usually do.

In a rather shocking bit of news, James Storm has asked for his release from TNA, and the company has granted that to him. No word yet on why he made this decision, but there has not been any reports of backstage heat between the former world heavyweight champion and management.

It appears that we are not going to be seeing photos of Sabu and Big Show drinking beers together on social media anytime soon. The two of them apparently have backstage heat.

Since management believed it to be a freak accident, there is no backstage heat on Samoa Joe for the neck injury that Tyson Kidd suffered. Bret Hart, however, has a different opinion. He stated that Joe is doing a finishing maneuver that is far too dangerous. Hart is also hoping that the Muscle Buster does not end up costing Kidd his career.

There may be some backstage heat heading towards Lita soon. During a recent interview, she flat out stated that the divas division has gone downhill since she left WWE. That will not sit well with the female performers and certain members of management. Amy Dumas did praise the divas down in NXT, however, and said that they can turn things around.

While she remains on very good terms with the company, there are talks that Mickie James could end up not returning to TNA after she is done with her autograph sessions.

There is a little backstage heat going on right now between Hulk Hogan and CM Punk, and it has nothing to do with professional wrestling. The two have exchanged some words due to comments that Hogan made about the Chicago Blackhawks, the hockey team that Punk is fanatical about. The tension isn't really all that serious.
