It's just been Booker T and I've always tried to make it that way." - Booker T discusses racism surrounding the business.

September 23, 2014
Brock Lesnar
Since Night of Champions 2014 took place over the weekend, a lot of fans were expecting Paul Heyman to make an appearance and gloat about how Brock Lesnar is still the WWE champion. However, Heyman was nowhere to be seen on Monday Night Raw. He was backstage at the event last night, but management opted against using him because they could not come up with something for Heyman and Lesnar.
September 23, 2014
Brock Lesnar
While there is a possibility that WWE does a third straight match between John Cena and Brock Lesnar, there are those backstage that are pushing for Cena to be transitioned into a feud with Seth Rollins instead. That's why the story line of Rollins attempting to cash in at Night of Champions 2014 took place. The belief is that this program will help elevate Rollins into the main event scene.
September 22, 2014
Austin Aries
Add Austin Aries to the long list of performers who may be leaving TNA once their contract expires. Reports surfaced recently that he was not one of the names advertised for an upcoming tour of England, and that led to the speculation that the former world heavyweight champion was not going to have his contract renewed by the company because they are still in limbo over a television contract.
September 22, 2014
Cody Rhodes
On Night of Champions 2014, Cody Rhodes and Goldust defeated Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso for the WWE tag team championship. Rumors are floating around that management felt that the twins had grown stale because they ran out of teams to defend the titles again. Plus, Rhodes has really been getting into his Stardust character, so the front office wants to see if the gimmick can pick up further steam with a championship push.
September 22, 2014
Dean Ambrose
By now, everyone knows that Roman Reigns has been hospitalized and is forced to miss Night of Champions 2014. Seth Rollins needs a new opponent. One of the ideas being tossed around is to have Dean Ambrose making a surprise return at the pay per view and continue his feud with Rollins. Ambrose had taken a couple of weeks away from WWE to film a movie, but he finished up this weekend.
September 21, 2014
Gail Kim
With the company still in limbo on a new television contract, whenever a veteran performer has a contract that is expiring, rumors float around that the person will be leaving TNA. Another name to add to the list is Gail Kim. Long viewed as one of the best female performers in the industry, her future is unclear, as her contract expires before the end of the year.
September 21, 2014
Eric Bischoff
Rumors have spread like wildfire about the possibility of Eric Bischoff joining Jeff Jarrett in his new Global Force Wrestling promotion. The speculations were started when a picture surfaced online of the two of them, along with Karen Jarrett, hanging out together. Since Bischoff has some stroke in Hollywood, a partnership between the two sides could greatly benefit GFW.
September 21, 2014
Roman Reigns
When word spread that Roman Reigns was rushed to the hospital, WWE made it clear that he was going to miss Night of Champions 2014, where he was scheduled for a big match against Seth Rollins. Reports have now surfaced that Reigns might be missing Hell in a Cell 2014 as well, as medical examiners believe that the type of hernia that he is suffering from is quite severe.
September 20, 2014
Bray Wyatt
As many fans already know, WWE has run out of opponents for Bray Wyatt, so he has slipped down the ladder tremendously over the last couple of weeks. Sheamus has long been a rumored opponent for Wyatt, and it looks like that feud may be happening soon. Management has had the two of them working together at live events, and the belief is that it will be brought to television soon.
September 20, 2014
Kevin Steen

September 17, 2014
Darren Young

Reports have surfaced that developmental wrestler Sami Zayn has been the one in the suit. He apparently portrayed the character on Monday Night Raw and at live events.
September 17, 2014
AJ Lee
One of the more interesting things in WWE nowadays is the feud between AJ Lee and Paige. It's not so much about what has happened on television, as much as it is about what can possibly happen next. The creative department has teased sexual tension between the two performers, but management knows that it cannot go too far because of potential backlash from advertisers. With WWE needing to create a buzz for the product, it will be interesting to see how close to the line that they're willing to step.
September 17, 2014
Brock Lesnar
Fans were a bit puzzled in regards to how Monday Night Raw was booked this week. John Cena kept telling fans that Paul Heyman only had until halftime to produce Brock Lesnar before an attack would happen. The incident took place closer to the two hour mark than halfway through the show. Reports have surfaced that WWE did this because Vince McMahon wanted to draw in viewers from the NFL game between the Indianapolis Colts and the Philadelphia Eagles. He used Lesnar and Cena, two of the bigger names in wrestling, to try to get fans to switch channels during halftime of the game.
September 16, 2014
Randy Orton
It looks like another wrestler is upset with WWE and wants time off. This time, it's Randy Orton. The former world heavyweight champion is said to be really upset with how management has been utilizing him. The belief is that Orton feels that he should be involved in the main event scene more frequently. He has been demanding some time away from WWE, but since the roster is so thin right now, management has only been able to give him time away from live events over the last couple of weeks.
September 16, 2014
Bully Ray
When his contract was expiring, a lot of fans wondered what TNA would do with Bully Ray and his stories since he was leaving the company. The two sides have reached an agreement to continue working together, so that the stories can be resolved. Bully Ray will also work the Bound For Glory 2014 event and be inducted into the TNA Hall of Fame before parting ways.
September 15, 2014
Triple H
Professional wrestling and football have long had a connection, as a lot of players from the gridiron have successfully made the switch to the squared circle. Triple H wants that tradition to continue, so WWE is now targeting more football players to join their developmental program. While there are a couple of guys already on the roster with athletic backgrounds, the company is looking for guys with more name value. WWE is also willing to pay these guys more money than the wrestlers.
September 15, 2014
Bully Ray
Rumors are spreading rapidly right now that Bully Ray has signed a new contract with TNA. The speculation stems from the fact that the company is now openly advertising him for Bound For Glory 2014. His contract expired not too long ago, and at the time, the belief was that the two sides were not able to come to an agreement on a new deal because TNA was still waiting for a television contract. There is also a chance that Bully Ray could just be doing a one time thing for the company.
