A lot of wrestling fans have started noticing that WWE has not been using Big Show all that much as of late. Rumors are floating around that management has opted against using him because he is taking off to film a movie soon. However, there is some skepticism on that theory because the company has done stories before that have lasted just a month. Big Show could have been utilized to put someone in WWE over during that stretch of time.

Big Show
Even though he was not booked for Elimination Chamber 2014, Big Show is still very much in contention for a coveted match at Wrestlemania 30.

February 24, 2014
Big Show
Since CM Punk has left the company and Daniel Bryan could be placed in a higher profile match, it appears that Kane might need someone else to work with at Wrestlemania 30.

Big Show
"I am pretty sure Big Show jumped for him. Not to take away anything from Antonio Cesaro he looks like a talented worker who can probably bring his work down a little bit and his body up, but that's just my opinion. If he slammed the Big Show than I can probably press the Big Show." - Former WWE star Chris Masters doubts that Antonio Cesaro was able to slam Big Show on his own strength

April 19, 2014
Kofi Kingston
Considering how incredible the show was, WWE should not have any issues with coming up with Wrestlemania 30 highlights to show on Monday Night Raw this week.

March 25, 2014
Bray Wyatt
Since the company would like for him to work a match before his big showdown with John Cena at Wrestlemania 30, Bray Wyatt has been booked to face the Big Show at the Smackdown taping this week.

March 25, 2014
Brie Bella
Since Wrestlemania is right around the corner, WWE has decided to tape a commercial in New Orleans to promote the pay per view.

March 22, 2014
Nikki Bella
Brie Bella and Nikki Bella are making a guest appearance on Psych this week, where the WWE divas are portraying zombies in a segment.

Mark Henry
A trailer video for the new WWE Slam City cartoon, which features John Cena, Damien Sandow, Kane, Sheamus, Big Show, Mark Henry, Dolph Ziggler, Rey Mysterio and Randy Orton. The story is that the wrestlers are fired and are all needing to find day jobs.
March 18, 2014
Vince McMahon
In order to steal him away from WCW, Vince McMahon had to throw a good amount of money at the Big Show. More than a decade after the fact, his salary still remains among the top of the list in WWE. Big Show is currently being paid $1,050,000 a year in downside guarantee, and his pay per view bonuses kick it quite a bit as well.
March 17, 2014
John Cena
After Monday Night Raw went off the air last night, Big Show and John Cena stormed the ring to save Daniel Bryan from an attack by Kane and Triple H, who managed to escape to the backstage area. Randy Orton, however, was not as lucky, as he was left out there alone with the three baby faces. Each of them hit their finishing move on the WWE champion.
March 4, 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.
July 26, 2014
Antonio Cesaro
Rumors are floating around right now that WWE officials have banned Antonio Cesaro from utilizing his giant swing move. The belief is that the company does not want him to accumulate more fan support because the move has proven to be massively popular. Management is said to be holding off on his face turn and big push because they want to focus on Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns first.
July 26, 2014
Big E Langston
There are those backstage in WWE that are skeptical of the idea of doing a heel turn for Kofi Kingston, who has long been regarded as the ultimate baby face. Since he does a lot of the charity work for the company, some are afraid that it will affect that aspect of his job as well. There are rumors floating around that WWE does not have finalized plans for the new stable that also consists of Xavier Woods and Big E Langston.
July 26, 2014
Josh Mathews
Josh Mathews might not be out of a job for too long. Rumors are floating around that TNA is very close to signing him to a contract. When he was backstage at Impact Wrestling, he did not seem like a typical visitor, as management was introducing him to people backstage. The belief is that he would be a valuable asset since he understands a lot about the production in WWE.
July 25, 2014
Rey Mysterio
A couple of months ago, Rey Mysterio was under the belief that his tenure with WWE was over when his contract expired. However, the company enacted a clause in the deal that enabled them to extend the partnership because the masked performer missed quite a bit of dates. Apparently, he is not too happy about that, as reports have surfaced that Mysterio has stopped cashing his checks in what seems to be an attempt to get out of the deal.
July 24, 2014
