Debut
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.

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
Jimmy Uso
Another interesting name that has surfaced in the rumor mill as a potential hall of fame inductee at Wrestlemania 31 is Rikishi. The belief is that including him in the same class as the Rock, whom WWE is hoping will be the centerpiece induction at the event, makes a lot of sense. There is also the chance that a reconciliation and reunion with Naomi Knight and Jimmy Uso could be a big story.
May 14, 2014
Ultimate Warrior
The WWE Hall of Fame induction ceremony was sent over to On Demand to be aired this past week. However, management opted to make a couple of changes. One of those omissions was the part of the Ultimate Warrior speech where he talked about WWE losing the legal battle against WWF in court. Management did not want that to cause any further legal issues.
April 16, 2014
Brock Lesnar
While he only made an in ring appearance at the big pay per view this year, Rock is being penciled in to work a match at Wrestlemania 31. WWE actually wants to build the entire event around him. A hall of fame induction is being discussed as well. As far as opponents are concerned, the top candidate to face the Rock at Wrestlemania is Brock Lesnar.

Scott Hall

Chris Jericho

April 12, 2014
Chris Jericho
There was a big hall of fame event last weekend during Wrestlemania 30 weekend, and neither Chris Jericho nor Edge were in attendance like WWE had hoped they would be. However, the two of them are attending an induction ceremony this week. Edge and Jericho are in Brooklyn to attend the rock and roll hall of fame ceremony.

Buff Bagwell
"When I first heard the news of the Ultimate Warrior's passing - from my oldest son - my first thoughts were of his precious daughters, and how their father - whose love for them was clear - had been taken away from them far to early in their lives. My second thought was about the foolish tweet I sent out during Warrior's Hall of Fame induction speech - and how badly I wish I could have taken those words back. Maybe they seemed harmless at the time, but in retrospect, the fact that my final words about Warrior were negative ones has had me feeling pretty bad these last 24 hours. I did not dislike Warrior. I got along fine with him in 1996, and years later, during a 'Legends Rountable' focusing on 'Heatseekers', I was good-naturedly kidded by my fellow Roundtable guests for having nothing negative to say about Warrior, Paul Heyman or Buff Bagwell." - Mick Foley talks about his relationship with Ultimate Warrior
April 10, 2014
Kane
In one of the more awkward moments at the hall of fame, Mr T had his induction speech cut short when WWE sent out Kane. The A-Team star took to Twitter to vent a bit about the situation, where he stated that his speech really wasn't too long at all. He reiterated that his mother told him to stand up for what he believed in and has vowed to post the remainder of his speech online somewhere.
April 10, 2014
Ultimate Warrior
Since the company is around the clock nowadays, WWE had a camera crew following the Ultimate Warrior around during the entire Wrestlemania 30 week, which included his long awaited induction into the WWE Hall of Fame. The belief is that management still wants to put together a special tribute to the week after his untimely death on Tuesday.
April 9, 2014
Ultimate Warrior
Almost immediately after word spread about his death, a lot of people became curious about the net worth of the Ultimate Warrior, especially since fans were introduced to his mother, wife and daughters at the WWE Hall of Fame induction ceremony. Some websites are reporting that the Ultimate Warrior's net worth is approximately $1.6 million.
April 9, 2014
Jim Ross
For a while there, people expected Jim Ross to not be on hand for the WWE Hall of Fame induction ceremony because the commentator himself stated that he had prior engagements. Apparently, he was able to cancel those plans after WWE officials invited him to attend the event. He even sat in the front row with Steve Austin.
April 6, 2014
Eddie Guerrero
A picture of Shaul Guerrero showing off the dress that she wore to the WWE Hall of Fame induction ceremony during Wrestlemania 30 weekend. She revealed that the Marilyn Monroe inspired outfit was in honor of her father, the late Eddie Guerrero.

Jim Ross

April 6, 2014
Ultimate Warrior
The hall of fame induction speech for the Ultimate Warrior went a little long, but very few people backstage in WWE were upset with it because it was quite entertaining. Warrior spoke from the heart, and he genuinely seemed to be enjoying himself at the hall of fame ceremony. He also gave himself some closure by criticizing the company for producing that DVD a couple of years back.
April 6, 2014
Carlito
Since he is not as big of a star in the United States as he was in Puerto Rico, WWE did not expect a grand reaction from the audience when Carlos Colon gave his hall of fame induction speech. In fact, Carlito received a much bigger and more lively reaction from the fans. Colon gave a solid speech that did not go on too long, but it was not something that blew everyone away.
April 6, 2014
Kevin Nash
Since Lita and Mr T went especially long in their segments, it was very obvious to many that Scott Hall had to rush through his hall of fame induction speech. WWE officials were very concerned backstage at the event, and they informed Hall of the situation. That was the reason why Kevin Nash made his joke onstage about having to rush through things.
April 5, 2014
Kane
Many were wondering how WWE was going to handle the Paul Bearer induction speech since he is no longer alive. Management opted to use multiple people instead. First, Kane gave an entertaining speech about his former manager. Then, the two sons of Paul Bearer gave a very brief speech before Undertaker came out in character and did a quick pose.
April 5, 2014
Kane
A slightly embarrassing situation took place during the Mr T induction speech during the hall of fame ceremony tonight. He spent quite a bit of time talking about his childhood and his mother as opposed to telling any wrestling related stories. WWE tried to resolve the situation by sending Kane out there to let Mr T know that he was over the time limit.
April 5, 2014
Jason Jordan
In an interesting move, Jason Jordan and Baron Corbin are being brought in for Extreme Rules 2014 tonight. The two of them are also scheduled to be backstage at Monday Night Raw and Smackdown as well. There is a very good chance that the two WWE NXT performers will be used in some sort of role tonight, despite neither one of them being rumored for a main roster promotion.
May 4, 2014
Shaul Guerrero
Since several wrestlers received a release from their developmental contracts earlier this week, the remaining performers are a bit nervous about their own status with WWE. Baron Corbin is one of those performers. He was recently given a gimmick change and a new valet in Shaul Guerrero. Since she has been released, there are concerns that he could be next to go.
May 3, 2014
Shaul Guerrero
Rumors going around are that Shaul Guerrero was caught a bit off guard by her release from WWE this week. She recently did a photo shoot, where she and Baron Corbin both did gimmick changes. Many had expected her to try out the new character on WWE NXT. Shaul has been quiet on Twitter, where her last post was during Monday Night Raw.
May 1, 2014
Baron Corbin
A picture of Baron Corbin with Shaul Guerrero. It appears that the WWE NXT star has been given a new gimmick and manager. This should help increase his chance of being called up to the main roster next year.
April 28, 2014
Alberto Del Rio
A lot of action took place in the main event of Money in the Bank 2014. Fans went crazy as they saw creative signature spots from Randy Orton, Sheamus, John Cena, Roman Reigns, Alberto Del Rio, Kane and Bray Wyatt. However, it was Cena, much to the dismay of online WWE fans, who climbed the ladder and captured the heavyweight championship.
June 29, 2014
CM Punk
To calm down the Money in the Bank 2014 audience, WWE opted to go with another divas match as a filler. Layla El and Summer Rae battled in a match, where Fandango served as the special guest referee. Fans were so disinterested in the segment that a CM Punk chant broke out. In the end, Layla caught Summer with a kick to gain the pinfall. Layla and Fandango kissed after the match, while a despondent Summer looked on.
June 29, 2014
Alexander Rusev
In a rematch at Money in the Bank 2014, Alexander Rusev was successfully able to conquer Big E Langston again with his submission move. It was the typical match that you would expect from the two. There was a botched spot where Langston speared Rusev to the outside of the ring. However, the two of them more than made up for that by doing a great closing sequence.
June 29, 2014
Cody Rhodes
In a match that was slightly held in higher regards than a filler match, Goldust and Cody Rhodes, who worked under his Stardust gimmick again, defeated Curtis Axel, who was sporting a ridiculous looking singlet, and Ryback. The match was designed to highlight the Stardust character. Since there was a little bit of action after the match, there is a chance that WWE could be continuing this feud.
June 29, 2014
Dean Ambrose
In a very exciting match, Seth Rollins outlasted Dean Ambrose, Dolph Ziggler, Kofi Kingston, Rob Van Dam and Jack Swagger to capture the briefcase at Money in the Bank 2014. WWE wants to continue the war between Ambrose and the Authority, so they had Kane coming out and providing assistance to Rollins. Despite the heel tactic to win the match, the Rollins victory was actually cheered by a good amount of fans.
June 29, 2014
Adam Rose
Since WWE needed a filler segment at Money in the Bank 2014 and wanted to showcase Adam Rose a little bit, he was given a quick match against Damien Sandow, who was dressed as Paul Revere. Match was not really all that noteworthy, and Rose got the win after hitting the Party Foul finishing move. This was a segment that belongs more on Monday Night Raw than a pay per view.
June 29, 2014
Cameron
Naomi Knight was given a crack at the WWE Divas Championship at Money in the Bank 2014, but it was Paige that walked away as the reigning titleholder after a DDT and a pin. The match was designed to further the eventual split between Naomi and Cameron, who was at ringside and taking glee whenever her tag team partner was in peril against Paige.
June 29, 2014
Erick Rowan
Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso had their biggest challenge to date when Erick Rowan and Luke Harper challenged them for the WWE tag team championship at Money in the Bank 2014. The twin brothers delivered by retaining the belt. The Usos performed a double superplex on Rowan before finishing him off with consecutive flying splashes from the top rope.
June 29, 2014
Batista
In a rather surprising move, WWE had the Shield win convincingly against Evolution. Batista and Randy Orton were the first two performers to be eliminated from the main event match at Payback 2014, but both provided interference for Triple H after their eliminations. After taking a brutal beating, Roman Reigns picked up the win for his team. Many expected Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins to be eliminated during the match, but WWE opted to give them a dominant ending.
June 2, 2014
Alicia Fox
In a match designed to be the buffer between the two main event features at Payback 2014, Paige successfully defended the WWE Divas Championship against Alicia Fox via submission. Afterwards, Alicia continued her story line of going crazy whenever things do not go well for her. The audience reacted more to the post match antics than the actual match.
June 2, 2014
Bray Wyatt
In a segment filled with plenty of interference from Jimmy Uso, Jey Uso, Luke Rowan and Erick Harper, John Cena was able to defeat Bray Wyatt in a Last Man Standing match at Payback 2014 after Cena put Wyatt through a big black box and covered him with an even heavier box. Rumors have it that WWE will be continuing this feud and something could trigger that on Monday Night Raw this week.
June 2, 2014
Rob Van Dam
At Payback 2014, Wade Barrett successfully defended the WWE Intercontinental Championship against Rob Van Dam after picking up the pin fall victory, thanks to the Bull Hammer. The performers placed some doubt in that finish when it appeared that Barrett had injured his arm while smashing into the corner post after RVD ducked away from the move outside the ring.
June 1, 2014
Alexander Rusev
In a glorified squash match at Payback 2014, Alexander Rusev defeated Big E Langston via submission to continue his push up the ladder in WWE. He was able to slap on the camel clutch after delivering a big kick to Langston. Afterwards, he held the submission move on for a short period of time before Lana instructs him to let go. Rusev should be placed into a new feud this week.
June 1, 2014
Cody Rhodes
In a match designed by WWE to accelerate the split between the brothers, Curtis Axel and Ryback defeated Cody Rhodes and Goldust in the second match of Payback 2014. Ryback picked up the pin fall victory for his team after delivering the Shell Shock to Rhodes. Afterwards, Rhodes told Goldust that he needs to find a better tag team partner for himself.
June 1, 2014
Antonio Cesaro
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
Daniel Bryan
In a match filled with quite a few over the top spots, Daniel Bryan successfully retained the WWE Championship by defeating Kane at Extreme Rules 2014. A running knee followed by a pin enabled Bryan to get the pin fall victory over Kane. Prior to that spot, Kane was put through a burning table and carried on a forklift, among other things.
May 4, 2014
Paige
Since WWE needed a Divas Championship match at Extreme Rules 2014, Paige was given the victory over Tamina Snuka after delivering her submission finisher. The segment was short and quick, providing only a couple of spots outside the ring. It basically served as a pay per view buffer between the steel cage match and the world title match.
May 4, 2014
Bray Wyatt
After suffering a loss at the last pay per view, Bray Wyatt needed a victory over John Cena at Extreme Rules 2014, and he got just that. Wyatt received a heavy dose of interference from Luke Harper and Erick Rowan, but Cena still managed to overcome those odds. As Cena was walking out of the cage, a kid showed up and began singing, which provided enough distraction for Wyatt to hit his Sister Abigail finisher and walk out for the victory.
May 4, 2014
Batista
In the most anticipated match at Extreme Rules 2014, the Shield defeated Evolution. Roman Reigns picked up the pin fall victory over Batista after a Superman punch and a spear. Triple H, Randy Orton, Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose fought through the audience before Rollins took out all four of them by hurling himself from the elevated stands.
May 4, 2014
Big E Langston
The first title change at Extreme Rules 2014 took place when Wade Barrett defeated Big E Langston to capture the WWE Intercontinental Championship. Barrett picked up the pin fall victory after delivering a running Bull Hammer finisher on Langston. A highlight of the pay per view was Langston spearing Barrett from the ring to the floor.
