Billy Gunn
When Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso captured the WWE tag team championship from Billy Gunn and road Dogg, they received a lot of congratulations messages from their peers, but the most meaningful one might have came from Booker T, their former trainer. He posted this message on Twitter to share how proud he is of his former students.

Jim Cornette
Anyone that has heard Jim Cornette speak over the last decade should already know that he absolutely hates Vince Russo. The former WWE manager routinely sways regular conversations into diatribes against Russo. Through Twitter, Russo offered to make pace with Cornette. As expected, though, Cornette wants nothing to do with that. He refuses to end the backstage heat between the two.

Kurt Angle
Earlier in the week, rumors surfaced that a photo of Kurt Angle being passed out on a plane was spotted backstage in WWE. The former world heavyweight champion himself decided to address those rumors on Twitter by denying it completely. He also revealed that he has been sober for almost an entire year now. Angle still plans on negotiating with WWE later on in the year about a return once his contract with TNA expires.

Samoa Joe
Some rumors are floating around this weekend that WWE is trying to sign Samoa Joe. The source of the speculations is said to be due to the fact that Triple H briefly followed Joe on Twitter. Sources are saying that Joe followed HHH back on the social media site, which means that they had the option for two way communications for a period of time this weekend. WWE has long avoided the signing of Joe, so this would be quite an interesting move if true.

Chris Sabin
Through Twitter, Petey Williams informed his fans that he will retire from professional wrestling after his final match on Saturday. The former TNA X Division Champion will be working against long time friend Chris Sabin at an independent wrestling show in Michigan. No word yet on why he has decided to retire after a dozen years in the business or what he intends to do afterwards.
July 4, 2014
CM Punk
In a very subtle manner, CM Punk took a jab at WWE for their recent handling of the Emma situation. When she was released, former writer Seth Mates posted a message on Twitter about the company being hypocritical and holding double standards. Punk added that post as a favorite on his account. The fact that Punk would do that shows that he still harbors some resentment towards WWE.
July 3, 2014
Zack Ryder
A status update on Twitter from Zack Ryder, informing fans that WWE is no longer selling any of his merchandise. Rumors have been circulating that the company wants to downplay his popularity, and this revelation lends credibility to those speculations. The fact that Ryder actually pointed it out in public is a sign that he could be really frustrated with his situation in WWE.

Adam Rose
Those that watched Monday Night Raw this week saw an in show commercial being aired for Twisted Tea that featured Santino Marella and Adam Rose. Several of the WWE stars also posted messages on Twitter about the adult beverage. The move is viewed as being quite interesting because the company has spent years shifting their attention towards a younger audience. This product does not necessarily fit that demographic.
July 1, 2014
CM Punk
When he decided to walk away from WWE, CM Punk went on a bit of a social media sabbatical. He recently started posting updates on Twitter again, but it's mostly been about hockey. His first wrestling related tweet was made this week when the former world heavyweight champion posted a little joke about a movie to his good friend Paul Heyman, who responded with a joke of his own.
June 29, 2014
Jonathan Coachman
Earlier in the year, rumors sparked that Jonathan Coachman was going to be returning to WWE to work on some projects with the company. The ESPN broadcaster confirmed those rumors by teasing it on Twitter. Well, it looks like the deal is off. Coachman insinuated that WWE did not want him enough. Since Vince McMahon has been trying to cut cost, the belief is that the company simply could not afford to bring him back.
June 26, 2014
Austin Aries
Since he was rather upset that TNA was allowing fans to choose the type of ring that the performers had to work in, Austin Aries aired his frustrations through Twitter. Now that the six sided ring has been officially brought back, Aries has decided to leave the social media site for the time being. The move is being done out of protest, but there's a good chance that the former TNA champion will be tweeting again some day.
June 25, 2014
Dixie Carter
A bit of a buzz was created for Cryme Tyme over the weekend, thanks to an interview on TMZ, where Shad Gaspard and JTG informed the fans that they are now teaming up again on the independent wrestling circuit.

June 23, 2014
Scott Hall
After announcing his retirement from UFC, Chael Sonnen posted a quote on his Twitter account that stated, "Bad times don't last, but bad guys do." The comment caught the attention of Scott Hall, who proceeded to criticize Sonnen for stealing the line that he made while being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. This appears to be a misunderstanding as Sonnen is a big fan of wrestling and has used several quotes over the years.
June 22, 2014
Alex Riley
A peculiar thing happened on Twitter recently. John Cena praised Alex Riley for his work on commentary when the latter made a reference to the Major League movie. While this would normally seem like something minor, it actually comes as a shock to those that believe the rumors that Cena was the reason why Riley lost his push. There reportedly was backstage heat between the two.

Evan Bourne
"In good news, 'I'll be wrestling again soon' will actually be happening. Please be patient because nothing happens until the dust settles. Thank you again for your unwavering support.

Jeff Jarrett

June 12, 2014
Curt Hawkins
As many of you already know by now, several WWE stars were on the receiving end of a release today, as the company is trying to cut cost a bit. As that is happening, Mark Henry decided to celebrate his 18th year anniversary with the company by posting a message on Twitter, which did not sit well with Curt Hawkins, who was one of the performers released. Hawkins posted this response to Henry.

Bully Ray
As many of you already know by now, TNA pulled Bully Ray at the last minute from a House of Hardcore show, which led to Tommy Dreamer cutting a scathing promo on Dixie Carter.

June 10, 2014
Cody Rhodes
Rumors are running rampant right now that Ted DiBiase will be making his return to WWE tonight, as Goldust has been posting several interesting updates on Twitter.

June 9, 2014
Mick Foley
A status update on Twitter from Mick Foley, where he stated that TNA wished him a happy birthday while WWE has yet do so. While the former world heavyweight champion is more than likely just playing around, there appears to be some truth in jest, as rumors have been floating around that there is backstage heat between Foley and some members of management in WWE.

Billy Gunn
The belief backstage in WWE is that Road Dogg is going to be winding down his days as an active in ring performer now that Wrestlemania 30 is over and done with. His tag team partner Billy Gunn suffered an injury during the big six man tag team match at the pay per view, so management is contemplating a scenario where they are written off of television.
April 8, 2014
Billy Gunn
Since the performers have a tendency to go all out during the biggest wrestling pay per view of the year, it should come as no surprise that there were several Wrestlemania 30 injuries. Undertaker was sent to the hospital for a potential concussion and injured neck. Billy Gunn was said to be bleeding internally. A lot of other performers suffered the usual cuts and bruises. Rough night for WWE stars.
April 8, 2014

WWE.com is reporting that Billy Gunn suffered a serious injury during his match against Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns at Wrestlemania 30.

Kane
At Wrestlemania 30, Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns completely destroyed Kane, Road Dogg and Billy Gunn in a six man tag team match. The Shield captured the win over the Authority with a triple power bomb on both members of the New Age Outlaws at the same time. That led to an easy pin fall victory for the Shield at Wrestlemania.
April 6, 2014
Kane
While plans are constantly being changed throughout the week, WWE currently has Kane, Road Dogg, Billy Gunn, Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins in the opening match at Wrestlemania 30. The belief is that the audience in New Orleans should give these guys a nice pop since all six guys are fairly over.
April 5, 2014
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.
April 1, 2014
Kane
Since management was having trouble trying to figure out where to put everyone, a last minute decision was made to do a six man tag team match so that WWE could get Kane, Road Dogg, Billy Gunn, Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins on the Wrestlemania 30 card. Reigns initially had a much bigger role on the pay per view.
March 25, 2014
Kane
In a sign that they still have a good amount of backstage power, Road Dogg and Billy Gunn have been pushing management to let them work with the Shield before WWE has Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins going their separate ways. It looks like the company will be giving them that chance at Wrestlemania 30 in the Kane story line.
March 21, 2014
Billy Gunn
Management is still trying to do decide what to do with Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso at Wrestlemania 30.

They're still guaranteed a spot on the card, though.
March 16, 2014
Jey Uso
There are those within WWE that want the tag team championship defended at Wrestlemania 30, and the favored match involves Jimmy Uso, Jey Uso, Road Dogg and Billy Gunn.

The Usos could be thrown into the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal if Road Dogg cannot work the tag match.
March 13, 2014
Billy Gunn

Jimmy Uso
Earlier, it was revealed that Road Dogg and Billy Gunn were both banged up, so WWE opted to put the tag team championship on Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso. Word is coming out now that Road Dogg has a bad back. He noted that was receiving treatment for the injury, and there is still a possibility that he ends up working the Wrestlemania 30 card.
March 8, 2014
Billy Gunn
The Usos were given the tag team championship recently, so that WWE could help to control the hostile audience at Monday Night Raw. Another reason for the change could be the health of Road Dogg and Billy Gunn. Both guys are said to be banged up a bit, as they ended up working a lot more matches that they initially thought they would.
March 8, 2014
Jimmy Uso
While it was heavily rumored to take place at Wrestlemania 30, WWE opted to go with the title change on Monday Night Raw instead, so Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso are your new tag team champions. They were able to defeat Billy Gunn and Road Dogg for the belts early on in the show. The belief is that it was done to help appease the Chicago crowd.
March 4, 2014
Jey Uso
On Monday Night Raw, Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso were given a victory over Road Dogg and Billy Gunn, in order to get some heat back after losing at Elimination Chamber 2014. Apparently, WWE does not feel that it is important enough to include in the Hulu broadcast of the show this week. Despite that, the Usos are still expected to be on the Wrestlemania 30 main card.
February 25, 2014
Jey Uso
Even though they lost at Elimination Chamber 2014, there are talks that Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso could be given a rematch tonight on Monday Night Raw. Since WWE wants it to be a special episode, they're wanting at least one title change to take place. Road Dogg and Billy Gunn could be the casualties of the creative department tonight.
