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.

Bray Wyatt
"If Luke Harper were a stock, I'd be buying him now. I've watched carefully for a while, and in the past two months, I've finally become sold on the big man, not only as an invaluable part of the bizarre The Wyatt Family, but as a potential breakout star on his own. Finding your way, and blazing your own unique path is no easy task in WWE, especially when standing in the very long shadow of Bray Wyatt. But Harper has found that way. I wasn't ready to buy into the Bruiser Brody comparison, no matter how many times it was brought up. Brody, a legend in the business, and a huge inspiration on my own career, was known as "the intelligent monster." Harper has excelled in my mind, by stepping off that path that Brody blazed, and finding his own, unique way to excel in WWE - as the guy who can do anything at any time, without any seeming rhyme or reason. The hurricanrana followed by a dropkick makes perfect sense, because it makes absolutely no sense. Here's one wrestling fan looking forward to Luke Harper's matches making little sense, but a huge impact on WWE Monday Night Raw for a long time to come." - Mick Foley praises Luke Harper

Bray Wyatt
While fans and betting websites are predicting that Bray Wyatt will be the one victorious at Wrestlemania 30, there are those backstage in WWE that are now pushing for John Cena to be given the win. Management knows that Cena is still the centerpiece of their business model, so keeping him strong is a company wide policy.

Diamond Dallas Page
As many of you already now, Diamond Dallas Page has found a great deal of success after professional wrestling. His yoga program has been purchased by thousands of people worldwide, and the business has been thriving.

Maryse Ouellet
There's been quite a bit of speculation this week about former divas returning to WWE. The latest name on the rumor mill is Maryse Ouellet. A big part of that is because the Miz mentioned the possibility on Twitter. There are those that believe that Maryse could be interested in a return, if it meant that she would get a spot on Total Divas. The exposure could help her business ventures exponentially.

AJ Lee
Through Twitter, CM Punk revealed to his fans that has now been married to AJ Lee for exactly six months. He joked that people thought they were not going to last, so he wants them to pay up on the bet. AJ made a joke as well. The WWE Divas Champion noted how the two of them were buddies on screen not too long ago. Thus far, their marriage has not affected business relationships for either of them.
November 15, 2014
Alberto Del Rio
It looks the business relationship between Alberto Del Rio and WWE has finally come to a close, as both sides released statements today informing their fans of that. The belief is that a settlement agreement has been made backstage. Del Rio will more than likely never pursue legal action against the company for firing him, while WWE is allowing him to work for any promotion in the world that he wants to.

Eric Bischoff
While TNA is having difficulties finding a new home for Impact Wrestling, Eric Bischoff is showing off his knack for getting television networks to give him air time. WGN has announced that they have ordered the first season of Outlaw Country, which is being produced by Bischoff and longtime business partner Jason Hervey. The show will be about the war between sets of brothers on different sides of the law in a Missouri town.

Honky Tonk Man
In a rather interesting bit of business news, the Honky Tonk Man has revealed that he owns the trademark to the Patriot gimmick, which was used in WCW and WWE. He stated that he has owned it since 2007, which means that Del Wilkes, who has continued to use the gimmick on the independent wrestling circuit over the years, could be legally forced to find a new character to portray.
November 1, 2014
Dixie Carter
While it seemed all but certain that Impact Wrestling was going to have a new home in 2015, reports are now surfacing that TNA and Spike TV are close to finalizing a deal to keep the business relationship going. Sources have stated that the two sides have been in negotiation the entire time, even as TNA was allowed to seek a contract with another television network. Dixie Carter was expected to make an announcement this week, but if there is a chance to remain with Spike, the reveal could be delayed.
November 1, 2014
Jeff Jarrett
If Jeff Jarrett wants Global Force Wrestling to do well right off the bat, then he's going to need some familiar faces on the show. Though he has been gone from WWE for quite some time now, John Morrison remains a familiar face with wrestling fans. The two of them are booked for a match against one another at an independent wrestling show on December 6, and Morrison has acknowledged that they will be discussing some business backstage.
October 22, 2014
Dixie Carter

Justin Roberts
When Justin Roberts was given his release from WWE after Monday Night Raw ended, there were a good amount of people who were upset with the company for dropping him unceremoniously. Overwhelmed by the support, the announcer went online and asked fans not to be angry. He stated that he was able to live out his dream for several years. Roberts was one of the more well liked guys backstage because of his passion and enthusiasm for the business.
October 15, 2014
Kurt Angle
While reports have surfaced that Kurt Angle has indeed been in negotiation with WWE on his final contract in the business, the former world heavyweight champion has not ruled out a potential return to TNA because the company is more than willing to give him the part time deal that he prefers. Angle has publicly stated that this will be his final contract as a wrestler, and he wants to try to gain more ground in Hollywood.
October 14, 2014
Jeff Jarrett
After doing a heel turn and joining the Bullet Club not too long ago, Jeff Jarrett returned to New Japan and continued the story line this week. The former world heavyweight champion crashed a press conference and declared himself as the Chairman of the Bullet Club. Jarrett has a business relationship with New Japan, so the story could transition over to Global Force Wrestling as well.
October 13, 2014
Brock Lesnar
With Brock Lesnar taking the WWE championship home with him during his typical break from the business, Paul Heyman has been left hanging. The massively popular manager has been omitted from a couple of episodes of Monday Night Raw, including the latest one. Management simply cannot find something for him to do while Lesnar is not on television.
October 7, 2014
Jeff Jarrett
Looks like Jeff Jarrett has made a major stride in the formation of Global Force Wrestling. It has now been announced that the promotion will be doing a pay per view on January 4, 2015. Since he has a business relationship with New Japan, and they do their biggest pay per view event on that day, there are speculations that Jarrett could be promoting that show as a GFW branded event in the United States.
September 30, 2014
Jack Swagger
Wade Barrett hasn't been on television in quite some time now because he suffered a shoulder injury during a match with Jack Swagger. He was recently up in Toronto, so he sought the help of Trish Stratus, a former WWE diva who now runs a successful yoga business. Barrett stated that the workout session with Trish helped his shoulder feel a bit better.
September 27, 2014
Bobby Lashley
For MMA fighters, you only have a certain amount of time in the business, so you want to get as many fights as humanly possible before you retire. Bobby Lashley is fully aware of this theory, and he embraces it. The TNA star won a fight earlier this month for Bellator, and he's already scheduled for another one next month at a show in Kansas.
September 22, 2014
Paul Heyman
For those that do not keep up with him outside of WWE, Paul Heyman actually has a ton of things going on in his professional life. In fact, things have picked up so much that he has now moved to Los Angeles to be closer to his business ventures. It has now been revealed that he is renting a house out there. Heyman should still be able to continue working with WWE.
August 26, 2014
Jeff Jarrett
Pretty soon, Antarctica might become the only continent where Jeff Jarrett does not have a business deal for Global Force Wrestling. It has now been revealed that he has secured deals in Australia and New Zealand. Jarrett has signed contracts with promotions in Perth, Adelaide, Sydney and Auckland. The belief is that the former world heavyweight champion is not done securing deals yet.

Roddy Piper
Roddy Piper recently did a one man show, and he took that opportunity to bash Vince McMahon. The WWE legend pointed out that his longtime employer has failed miserably as a concert promoter, bodybuilding promoter and football promoter. Piper went on to say that McMahon has only succeeded as a promoter in the business that his father handed to him.
August 25, 2014
John Cena
During a recent video interview with Supertraining Gym in Sacramento, John Cena was asked about a potential heel turn, something that fans have been speculating about for years online. The former WWE champion flat out stated that it will never happen. Cena said that he had it in him to make it work, but management will never pull the trigger on such a move because it does not make sense for business.
August 24, 2014
Jack Swagger
Someone in the WWE front office has not been paying attention to the story lines. On Monday Night Raw, Jack Swagger was injured by the Authority and removed from Survivor Series 2015. However, when the show runners needed someone to work against Bray Wyatt on Main Event this week, they accidentally chose Swagger as the opponent, not realizing that he should be kept off of television for a couple of weeks.
November 19, 2014
Bray Wyatt
After checking out the live event that WWE ran opposite Monday Night Raw yesterday, it is clear that Chris Jericho was definitely a much needed addition because star power was very low. Dean Ambrose, Antonio Cesaro and Bray Wyatt were the three top stars at the event, none of which have extended stays in the main event scene. The rest of the card was filled with lower card performers, so Jericho was the main attraction for many of the people in the audience.
November 11, 2014
Bray Wyatt
A lot of changes have taken place on the upcoming WWE tour of Europe. Initially, Randy Orton was scheduled for the entire trip. Then, after he expressed frustration with his role in the company, management allowed him to leave during the second half of the tour. Now, the former world heavyweight champion has been removed from the overseas shows altogether. He is being replaced by Bray Wyatt, who will work matches against Chris Jericho.
October 30, 2014
Bray Wyatt
While he does not have a story line or a feud on Monday Night Raw, Bray Wyatt has been working against Big Show, most recently during the brief tour of Malaysia. That has led to speculations that the two of them could be bringing that feud to television soon. However, Big Show is expected to put over Alexander Rusev, which would bring him down a notch. Management is concerned about putting Wyatt against mid card performers after moving him all the way up to John Cena.
October 11, 2014
Luke Harper
While it appears that WWE is setting up Luke Harper for a singles push, a lot of people have been wondering about what the future holds for Erick Rowan. He has not been seen in the recent videos with Harper and Bray Wyatt. There have been no words about him receiving a push as a singles performer as well. Many feel that Rowan will be lost in the shuffle as a solo performer.
October 10, 2014
John Cena
Since management really likes the character and wants him back on television and pay per view events, there are talks of doing a baby face turn with Bray Wyatt. WWE ran out of top level opponents for him to work against once he was done with John Cena and Chris Jericho. Wyatt would have a couple of fresh heel opponents to work against if he were to switch sides.
October 9, 2014
Erick Rowan
WWE has been struggling to figure out what they want to do with Bray Wyatt lately, so the character has pretty much been forced into the background. Rumors have recently surfaced that management is going to bring up the Ascension, a tag team consisting of Conor OBrian and Rick Victor, from WWE NXT to form a new stable with Wyatt. The duo would replace Luke Harper and Erick Rowan.
October 7, 2014
Bray Wyatt
There were some speculations from online wrestling fans that Bray Wyatt had some sort of injury since he has not been utilized much on Monday Night Raw and Smackdown as much recently. However, the truth is that he is just fine. Wyatt continues to work matches on a regular basis during WWE live events. Management seems to be purposely not using him much on television.
October 4, 2014
Bray Wyatt
In a move that might be taking place much too soon, WWE has decided to split up the Wyatt Family. Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan will all be going their separate ways. Wyatt is rumored to be doing a baby face turn soon since management ran out of top level opponents for him. Harper is expected to receive a nice push as a singles performer, while nothing much has been said about plans for Rowan.
October 1, 2014
Erick Rowan
On Monday Night Raw this week, WWE aired a video, featuring Luke Harper and Bray Wyatt. Reports have surfaced that the move was done because management wanted to give Harper a singles push. There are also talks that the company is considering a complete split for the Wyatt Family. No word yet on what they plan on doing with Wyatt and Erick Rowan.
September 30, 2014
Big Show
Considering how far down the ladder he has been dropped, it's easy to understand why there are a lot of rumors about possible backstage heat on Bray Wyatt. Speculations were high over the weekend because Wyatt lost cleanly in a match against Big Show, a performer that is not being pushed. A possible explanation for the loss is that WWE usually allows the baby faces to win at live events, in order to appease the audience.
September 28, 2014
Roman Reigns
For the past 24 years, Pro Wrestling Illustrated has listed the top 500 performers in the industry. Despite being injured, Daniel Bryan was given the top honor this year. It is the first time that he has been ranked as the top wrestler in the world. He managed to beat out fellow WWE stars, Randy Orton and John Cena. Among the notable newer performers in the top ten were Bray Wyatt and Roman Reigns.
September 26, 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
John Cena
When he was feuding with John Cena, Bray Wyatt appeared to be a lock to remain in the WWE main event scene for quite some time. When that feud ended, he was able to maintain some momentum when Chris Jericho made his return to the company and feuded with Wyatt. Since there is a lack of top level talent in WWE, there are now talks that management could have Wyatt feuding with Dolph Ziggler over the Intercontinental Championship, even though it seems out of the norm for his character to chase a secondary belt.
September 10, 2014
Erick Rowan
Those that watched Monday Night Raw last week saw John Cena being booked dominantly against Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan. It has now been revealed that Vince McMahon was the person behind all of that. Someone backstage had informed McMahon that a lot of WWE fans were mocking Cena for being dominated, so McMahon has decided to build Cena back up again.
August 28, 2014
John Cena
After witnessing Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan being utilized as pawns in the feud between John Cena and Brock Lesnar on Monday Night Raw, a lot of fans voiced their complaints towards WWE. It is now being said that management actually had a different plan that evening for Wyatt. He was supposed to have been booked strong by attacking Big Show and Mark Henry during the closing segment. Instead, WWE changed their minds and decided to put Cena and Lesnar over instead.
August 27, 2014
Brock Lesnar
WWE has announced a big rematch between John Cena and Bray Wyatt for Monday Night Raw tonight. No word yet on why the match is taking place, as the two of them are not currently feuding with one another. Wyatt is still feuding with Chris Jericho, while Cena is in a program with Brock Lesnar, who once again will not be making a television appearance this week despite being the WWE champion.
August 25, 2014
Chris Jericho
When Bray Wyatt was closing out his feud with John Cena, many wondered who WWE was going to pair him up with next. Fortunately for the company, Chris Jericho agreed to return and help keep Wyatt interesting. Their feud is about to end, so the question has popped up again. As of right now, it looks like WWE is leaning towards putting Wyatt together with Sheamus in a program.
August 22, 2014
Bray Wyatt
It looks like the feud between Chris Jericho and Bray Wyatt will be continuing for another month. As of right now, WWE has the two of them penciled in for some sort of gimmick match at Night of Champions 2014. Each man has a victory on pay per view against the other, but the belief is that Jericho will be putting Wyatt over before taking off to focus on his music again.
August 19, 2014
Triple H
During a recent interview, Triple H revealed some interesting things about Bray Wyatt. He stated that WWE was on the verge of giving him a release a while back. HHH said he was able to convince management to let him work on a new character and test it out on WWE NXT. Things worked out rather well, and Wyatt was eventually promoted to the main roster.
