Miz
There were a lot of rumors over the weekend that Miz was going to be making his return to WWE on this week's episode of Monday Night Raw. However, that never happened. Word going around now is that management purposely decided to delay the return since the next episode will be taking place in his hometown of Cleveland. The return is expected to happen then.

Davey Richards
As of right now, TNA has not announced the opponents for Ross Von Erich and Marshall Von Erich, the sons of Texas legend Kevin Von Erich, at Slammiversary 2014. Some rumors are floating around that they might be paired up with excellent ring workers in Davey Richards and Eddie Edwards, but others believe that they will be working against a heel tandem in order to generate a good reaction in front of their hometown fans in Dallas.

Damien Sandow
Since Monday Night Raw is in Indiana, WWE decided to have Damien Sandow doing a segment to taunt the fans by having him mock Lance Stephenson, who happens to play for the hometown Pacers. For those that do not follow the NBA, Stephenson recently generated a lot of headlines because he attempted to trash talk LeBron James during the playoffs and failed miserably.

CM Punk
Since the pay per view was in Chicago, many within WWE expected the fans to chant for CM Punk last night. They did just that throughout Payback 2014. However, some within the company were surprised to see a passionate please from the audience for WWE to utilize Dolph Ziggler. They chanted for him almost as much as they did for Punk, the hometown hero.

CM Punk
Rumors going around right now is that CM Punk will be making an appearance at Payback 2014 tonight because the event is taking place in his hometown of Chicago. However, the former WWE champion revealed that he will be approximately 20 miles down the road from the pay per view. Punk will be attending an NHL game instead of making his return to wrestling.

Batista
Since the final episode of Monday Night Raw before Wrestlemania 30 is in his hometown of Washington DC, Batista has been booked in a non title match against Randy Orton that evening. The belief is that WWE will make Batista look strong that night, so that fans will believe that Orton has a chance at losing the belt at the pay per view.

Dolph Ziggler
In a rather interesting bit of news, WWE did a live event in Long Island this weekend, and they purposely opted not to use Zack Ryder, the hometown hero. In what could be a show of defiance towards management, Dolph Ziggler did an in ring tribute to Zack Ryder during his match by doing a couple of his Ryder's signature moves.
March 24, 2014
CM Punk
A widespread belief in the industry is that if CM Punk were to return to WWE, it would have taken place at Monday Night Raw this week since it took place in his hometown of Chicago. The timing would have been great, and it would have enabled the creative department enough time to set him up for a big spot at Wrestlemania 30.

CM Punk
Rumors are heating up that CM Punk will be returning to WWE this week on Monday Night Raw, which is taking place in his hometown of Chicago. Nothing has been confirmed, however, and the belief is that a lot of this speculation is being fueled by wishful thinking. Vince McMahon has been trying to get through to Punk to get him back in time for Wrestlemania 30, though.
March 2, 2014
Diego
Since the company was doing shows simultaneously at both ends of the state, WWE decided to book Rey Mysterio up north instead of doing the show in his hometown. That turned out to be quite the costly mistake for management, as the show in San Diego drew very poorly at the gates without the popular masked star.
February 21, 2014
Cameron
While WWE has often times chosen to humiliate performers when they're working in front of their hometown crowds, management opted to give Cameron a win on Monday Night Raw in Los Angeles. She posted this special message on Twitter to commemorate the night.
February 13, 2014
Alberto Del Rio
Since it is heavily integrated into his character, most fans associate Rey Mysterio with his hometown of San Diego. In a rather interesting move, WWE opted not to utilize him as the live event in that city over the weekend. Instead, he was sent up north to San Jose to work a six man tag team match featuring Mark Henry, Xavier Woods, Alberto Del Rio, Jack Swagger and Antonio Cesaro.
February 9, 2014
CM Punk
In a sign that the backstage heat is still there, WWE has removed CM Punk from advertisement for the upcoming episode of Monday Night Raw that is set to take place in his hometown of Chicago in March. Management was hoping that he would return by that point, in order to avoid being in a hostile environment filled with angry fans.

Rockstar Spud

"I really am living the dream and returning to the UK, whatever the reaction, really tops its off. It has been a whirlwind year or so really but I can’t think of a better way to top it off than with this tour and getting to wrestle for TNA in front of my hometown crowd. It might be a cliché but it really is a dream come true, I have wanted to be a wrestler for so long and now being able to do it, is just amazing.”

Billy Gunn
Since the company is always searching for new talent, WWE held tryouts this past week. Running the event for the company were Bill DeMott, Norman Smiley, Tensai, Billy Gunn, Dean Malenko and William Regal. There were approximately 30 people trying out, with 20 of them having actual experience in professional wrestling.

Joey Ryan
Over the last couple of months, Joey Ryan has grown increasingly vocal about his tryout and dealings with WWE. While he does harbor some resentment towards Bill DeMott, he showed gratitude and respect towards William Regal, who asked him to move to Florida and work as a trainer in the developmental system for the company.

Vince McMahon
A couple of months ago, many were wondering if Bill DeMott was going to be able to survive the abuse allegations that were thrown his way towards former developmental wrestlers. It now appears that he has now been able to move past that and is in no danger of losing his position as the head trainer for WWE. He's on good terms with both Vince McMahon and Triple H.

Joey Ryan
While several wrestlers have already signed up for the WWE Network, Joey Ryan refuses and posted this message on Twitter to explain why performers should not spend money on such things. Ryan made headlines recently when he made some highly critical comments about the WWE developmental program and Bill DeMott.

Bill DeMott
The demotion of Brodus Clay seems to be getting worse and worse. Aside from being pulled from Monday Night Raw and Smackdown, he has been working in the developmental program as of late, training with Bill DeMott. Clay worked a match for WWE NXT and actually put over Angelo Dawkins. Generally, main roster guys are the ones getting the victories.

Bill DeMott
While his dreams of working at Wrestlemania 30 might be in jeopardy, that has not stopped Brodus Clay from trying. He has been training with Bill DeMott, the head trainer for WWE, down in developmental as of late. No word yet on when he will return to Monday Night Raw or Smackdown.
February 21, 2014
Billy Gunn
Back in December, WWE opted to release Knuckles Madsen from his developmental contract. He never came close to being called up to the main roster. Madsen must feel that the door on a return has been closed, as he has decided to unleash his bitterness towards the company. He has been taking jabs at Billy Gunn and Bill DeMott online.

"Another thing Bill DeMott said at the WWE camp is that WWE retrained Daniel Bryan or he wouldn't be as good as he is today."

Bill DeMott

"At the WWE camp, Bill DeMott said nobody on the indies is as good as NXT guys. I'd LOVE to debate Bill DeMott on what he thinks "good wrestling" is."

Triple H

Triple H and Bill DeMott extended an invitation to Diamond Dallas Page to visit the performance center, and the former WCW champion has decided to take them up on that offer.

Despite all the abuse allegations towards him earlier this year, it does not appear that WWE will be firing Bill DeMott as their lead trainer.

Bill DeMott

"It was getting tough to not be a part of it. It took me a long time to become a part of WCW, even though I was there six and a half years. That last nine months to a year, I became part of the company where I contributed more than just doing basic stuff. It was getting tough. Then I got to go to (a developmental camp in) Cincinnati, which was good because I got to help the younger guys come up. Then my house shows started tapering off, and no TV because the creative team has a lot to handle. You’re not forgotten about, but they have to deal with the weekly product. So that was the toughest part. When you feel like you can go, and you’re sitting. You just want to be part of it. I can’t see myself doing anything else."
