Debut
2009
Rey Mysterio
While his days as a top level performer are certainly behind him now, WWE is hoping to sign Rey Mysterio to a contract extension that will see him in a new role. He would work extremely limited dates as an in ring performer and travel extensively to other countries to act as a brand ambassador. The current contract expires at the end of April.
April 3, 2014
Brock Lesnar
While it is viewed by many backstage as one of the biggest draws that WWE could put on Wrestlemania 30, the feeling is that the match between Brock Lesnar and Undertaker will not happen. Reports are stating that management is concerned that Lesnar is not willing to travel down to Texas to work out with Undertaker for a few weeks.
February 13, 2014
Sting
While a contract has not yet been signed, Sting is said to be very willing and eager to work a big match against Undertaker at Wrestlemania 30. Since he has a residence in Texas, he is said to be willing to travel down to the gym that Undertaker owns and work on their potential match together. That's something that has been done over the last few years.
February 13, 2014
Vince McMahon

Since WWE stars had to travel through pretty rough weather this past winter, Vince McMahon is leaning towards doing more house shows on the west coast during the months of October through January, as the conditions on that side of the country are not nearly as harsh.

February 1, 2014
Davey Richards

Davey Richards and Eddie Edwards made their TNA debut on Impact Wrestling last week, and word coming from backstage is that each of them has been signed to a one year contract. The former ROH stars are expected to travel with the company for a tour of England soon.

January 20, 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
Bray Wyatt
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
Bray Wyatt
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
Bray Wyatt
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
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
Bray Wyatt
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
Bray Wyatt
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
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
Bray Wyatt
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
Bray Wyatt
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
Bray Wyatt
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
Bray Wyatt
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
Bray Wyatt
Rumors are floating around that WWE is going to be bringing in another member of the Wyatt Family to help Bray Wyatt regain some of the momentum that he has lost over the last couple of weeks. Word has it that the story line will consists of Erick Rowan and Luke Harper both being banned from ringside at Summerslam 2014. The new character would make their debut that night.
August 3, 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
Bray Wyatt
As late as Saturday, management had plans in place for Bray Wyatt to beat Chris Jericho at WWE Battleground 2014. However, Vince McMahon called an audible and had Jericho winning the match. No word yet on why McMahon made this decision, but it is being said that a lot of people backstage were against the idea because Wyatt had already started losing momentum with the audience.
July 22, 2014
Bray Wyatt
While wrestling fans online are downplaying the incident, WWE is a bit concerned that fans in attendance at the last episode of Monday Night Raw were bored with Bray Wyatt during his segment with Chris Jericho. The chants came as a bit of a surprise to management, as they felt that Wyatt was one of their more popular performers. There were concerns that he would lose interests from some fans once his program with John Cena ended.
July 17, 2014
Bray Wyatt
When Bray Wyatt was accidentally busted open by some errant punches from Ric Flair at a WWE live event in Madison Square Garden this past weekend, he took it extremely well. Some are even saying that he looked like he enjoyed the moment with the legendary Flair in a legendary arena. Since he did not get upset about the incident, people backstage are praising Wyatt for his attitude.
July 16, 2014
Bray Wyatt
If you're a big fan of Chris Jericho, then you probably should not blink. Rumors floating around is that he will be leaving WWE very soon. Some are even saying that he only came back to work with Bray Wyatt and help him get over some more before joining the main event scene. Speculations are that he will be gone before the year is over and that WWE paid him a hefty sum to come back.
July 6, 2014
Bray Wyatt
While he was widely viewed as one of the favorites to win the title at Money in the Bank 2014, Bray Wyatt was actually never in consideration as a champion by WWE. The company was dead set on putting the belt back around John Cena, as they felt that they needed their top star to be the face of the company while they're trying to win back the trust of the investors. Putting the belt on Wyatt might not evoke the same level of trust from people who might not necessarily follow the product as much as fans.
July 3, 2014
Tito Santana
During a recent and rare interview, Tito Santana bashed WWE for not pushing his El Matador gimmick. He stated that he was not initially crazy about the idea, but he was still dedicated enough to travel down to Mexico to learn to be an actual bullfighter. Santana felt that the gimmick was very much over with the audience, so he feels that WWE missed an opportunity by not pushing him into the main event scene.
October 6, 2014
Jeff Hardy
Since he has a criminal conviction on his record, there were some speculations as to whether or not Jeff Hardy would be allowed to travel into Japan to work at Bound For Glory 2014. Sources are now stating that the former world heavyweight champion has been cleared to enter the country if he wishes. It is now up to TNA to decide if they want to have him on the show. As of right now, Hardy is not being advertised for the pay per view.
September 14, 2014
MVP
In order to show support, MVP took his own time and money to travel to Ferguson to be part of the protest. While the TNA star was pleased by the show of solidarity in the community, he did note that there were a few people there who were making the situations worse. MVP was more than likely referring to the looters who were taking advantage of the situation.
August 18, 2014
Jeff Jarrett
Last night, Jeff Jarrett was scheduled to work a match at TripleMania, which is the biggest pay per view by AAA. Unfortunately, though, he was not able to make it. Jarrett had some travel issues due to some bad weather in Texas. There is said to be no backstage heat towards the former world heavyweight champion because he did make the effort to try to get to Mexico for the show.
August 18, 2014
Vince McMahon
In a sign of how tight money is becoming in WWE, Vince McMahon has decided to take away the tour bus that the production crew used to travel in. This has reportedly upset several of the workers, as they were able to sleep while being transported to the next city to set up the arena. Now, they're being forced to drive themselves, which means that they are receiving very little sleep.
July 16, 2014
Vince McMahon
In another sign that the company is concerned about the huge amount of money being lost, WWE is going to be scaling back on their traveling budget. Several of the top performers in the company are allowed to fly first class when they travel to and from the live events. Vince McMahon is now going to have them flying coach like the mid card and lower card performers.
July 12, 2014
Rock
It is no secret that WWE would love for the Rock to be the centerpiece attraction at Wrestlemania 31. However, the possibility of that happening is becoming more and more unclear by the day. The studios have decided to move the release date of Fast and Furious 7, which features Rock in a big role, up a bit. It will now be shown in the theaters a few days after Wrestlemania. That means that the Rock will be needed to travel the world to do promotion for the film. His availability to WWE is in question.
July 10, 2014
Kevin Von Erich
During a recent interview to promote his upcoming appearance at Slammiversary 2014, Kevin Von Erich revealed to the Dallas News that he normally avoids traveling because of a bad back suffered from years of being an in ring performer. The Texas legend stated that he was willing to travel from his home in Hawaii to the TNA pay per view because he wants to see his son performing on a national stage.
June 1, 2014
Al Snow
MVP is taking the weekend off from TNA live events, so that he can travel to England to work a big show over there for PCW. Promoters there have also booked Al Snow, Shane Helms, Low Ki and Chris Masters as well. One of the things that MVP asked for in contract negotiations with TNA is to have some freedom and flexibility to work overseas still.
May 30, 2014
John Cena
The scheduling department in WWE is doing the already overworked John Cena no favors this July. The company has a big Madison Square Garden show booked, and Cena is scheduled to be the main event performer that night. However, Cena is also needed to draw in the fans at shows in Japan earlier in the week. He will be forced to travel across the world in a short period of time.
April 30, 2014
Jinder Mahal
While fans are under the impression that professional wrestlers are all getting rich, that simply is not the case, especially for a lower level performer like Jinder Mahal. The 3MB member is currently being paid $75,000 a year by WWE in downside guarantees. That salary seems like a lot, but Mahal has to pay for his own travel expenses every week.
March 26, 2014
Kofi Kingston
While he is not a main event performer in WWE, Kofi Kingston draws in a pretty good salary. His downside guarantee is $254,200 a year. Even though he does have to pay for his own travel expenses, Kingston does get thrown into a couple of pay per view events per year, which gives his annual salary a nice boost from the PPV bonuses.
March 24, 2014
Chavo Guerrero
Since wrestlers travel a ridiculous amount of miles every single year, coincidental meetings at airports take place rather frequently. The latest one has Chavo Guerrero and Sean Waltman bumping into one another at the airport in Dallas. Guerrero snapped this picture of the two of them together and uploaded it for his fans on Twitter.
March 1, 2014
Eric Young
"It may be the lack of sleep, but so far, at the Chicago airport, I've thought I saw Eric Young, Mr Anderson, Sabu, Rick Rude and Big Bossman." - Tommy Dreamer jokes about travel and sleep
February 9, 2014
Stephanie McMahon

Stephanie McMahon revealed on Twitter that she has a new jet plane. The belief is that WWE purchased the new vehicle for her because she will be attending events more frequently in the role of brand ambassador. Triple H and Vince McMahon will more than likely travel together to Monday Night Raw and Smackdown each week.

February 3, 2014
Natalya Neidhart

Travel isn't an easy thing. Since America Airlines lost their luggage, Natalya Neidhart and Tyson Kidd have no clothes to wear, so the WWE couple has no choice but to wear their ring gear in the hotel room. Natalya posted the hilarious picture on Twitter.

January 29, 2014
Xavier Woods

One of the perks and hassles of being a WWE performer is that you get to visit a lot of cities across the world. Xavier Woods is taking advantage of that opportunity now that he is on the main roster. He is currently on a mission to visit a local video game store in every city that he travels to.

January 24, 2014
AJ Lee

"I knew AJ Lee from developmental a year before she was on NXT. I didn't know Dolph Ziggler at all. But when we started working together and traveling to different shows we realized that we shared a similar sense of humor. It didn't take us long to realize that it was kind of an odd pairing but it worked. We had a lot of fun and it is something that I'll always remember. I learned a lot from Dolph when I was ringside for all of the John Cena matches at house shows. It was a positive way for me to start my career."

- Big E Langston

January 23, 2014
Shawn Michaels

Shawn Michaels was in Las Vegas for the big WWE Network announcement, but that would not be his last time in Sin City this month. The former WWE champion had to travel back there for SHOT Show 2014 with the crew from his television show in tow.

January 16, 2014
Kofi Kingston

A few fans have noticed that Kofi Kingston has been absent from Monday Night Raw and Smackdown as of late. The longtime WWE star was doing a promotional tour of Saudi Arabia. He's back in the United States and will be back on the road shortly.

January 13, 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
Randy Orton
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
Chris Jericho
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
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.
August 7, 2014
Bray Wyatt
During Monday Night Raw, a segment aired where Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan attacked Chris Jericho in the locker room. That was actually a trick by WWE, as the footage was filmed at the pay per view on Sunday night. Jericho had actually hopped on a flight to Los Angeles on Monday morning, so that he can begin promotional work for the new Fozzy album.
July 22, 2014
Bray Wyatt
It looks like the previous media ban has been completely lifted for Bray Wyatt. WWE is now having him do interviews across the country to promote their events. In the past, the company has forced him to avoid speaking publicly, in order to keep an air of mystery around his character. Management wanted to mold him to be similar to the Undertaker character at one point in time.
July 19, 2014
Chris Jericho
While it was still noticeable last night, WWE medical personnel worked fervently last night to repair the black eye on Bray Wyatt before he stepped in front of the cameras. They drained fluids from around his eye to reduce the swelling. Then, makeup artists did as much as they could to hide the darkness. WWE worked around the issue by having Erick Rowan and Luke Harper attacking Chris Jericho in the ring before Wyatt made a brief appearance on the stage.
July 15, 2014
Bray Wyatt
It looks like WWE has changed their minds and will not be doing a quick feud between Miz and Chris Jericho after all. The former world champions were penciled for a brief program together, and the seeds were even planted when both made their returns simultaneously on Monday Night Raw a couple of weeks ago. Miz is now being paired up with Sheamus, while Jericho was moved immediately into a feud with Bray Wyatt.
July 15, 2014
Bray Wyatt
A black eye usually is not something to be proud of. It is, however, when you're a lifelong wrestling fan being punched by one of the greatest performers that the industry has ever seen. Bray Wyatt received a black eye during a big live event at Madison Square Garden in New York City over the weeken due to an errant punch by Ric Flair. Reports are stating that the incident happened because Flair forgot that he was wearing his hall of fame ring. There is said to be no backstage heat between the two due to the injury.
July 14, 2014
Bray Wyatt
Tour dates for Fozzy have now been finalized and announced. The band starts touring heavily in September, which means that Chris Jericho will be leaving around that time period. The former undisputed champion currently is scheduled to work WWE events during the month of September, but he has nothing listed afterwards. The belief is that Jericho is simply here to put over Bray Wyatt.
July 9, 2014
Brie Bella
A lot of fans were hoping to see John Cena next month at the Comic Con event in San Antonio. They're going to be a little bit disappointed because WWE has been forced to pull the heavyweight champion from the event. The belief is that he needs the time to film a new movie. To make things up to the fans, WWE is sending Bray Wyatt, Brie Bella and Nikki Bella.
July 3, 2014
Chris Jericho
Shortly after Chris Jericho made his surprising return on Monday Night Raw, the Wyatt Family provided a surprise of their own when Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan suddenly appeared in the ring to attack the former undisputed champion. When Wyatt was in NXT, Jericho specifically requested to WWE officials to let him work with Wyatt. The belief is that he did so again upon signing a contract to return.
July 1, 2014
Alberto Del Rio
A lot of action took place in the main event of Money in the Bank 2014. Fans went crazy as they saw creative signature spots from Randy Orton, Sheamus, John Cena, Roman Reigns, Alberto Del Rio, Kane and Bray Wyatt. However, it was Cena, much to the dismay of online WWE fans, who climbed the ladder and captured the heavyweight championship.
June 29, 2014
Bray Wyatt
A lot of positive things are happening for Bo Dallas as of late. In addition to finally being called back up to the main roster by WWE, he also recently got married. It's interesting to note that he did not take any time off of television for the ceremony. The belief is that several of his famous relatives, such as Bray Wyatt, Barry Windham and Mike Rotunda, were on hand for the event.
June 27, 2014
Brock Lesnar
Some bad news for those of you that hate John Cena. Rumors are pointing to him being at the head of the line as the next WWE champion. Cena is expected to win the title at Money in the Bank 2014. The belief is that the company wants to put the title back around the waist of their most proven draw. If Cena wins the belt again, potential feuds include Bray Wyatt, Brock Lesnar and Daniel Bryan.
June 22, 2014
John Cena
Since his feud with John Cena cannot go on forever, fans have naturally wondered who WWE was going to have Bray Wyatt feuding against next. There hasn't been any clear indications on Monday Night Raw or Smackdown as to who he will transition into a program with, but rumors are floating around right now that it could be Sheamus. The two of them are scheduled to work against one another on an upcoming tour of Australia, so that could be what WWE has in mind.
June 20, 2014
Antonio Cesaro
Rumors going around right now has WWE giving the world heavyweight championship to a heel at Money in the Bank 2014. The belief is that the company will set someone up to feud with John Cena and Daniel Bryan over the next few months. Antonio Cesaro has been rumored for a few weeks now, but some are skeptical of that because he hasn't been given a ton of momentum by WWE. Management will either hot shot the belt to Bray Wyatt or go with the safe route in Randy Orton.
June 16, 2014
Dean Ambrose
Over the last year, fans became aware that Roman Reigns was on the fast track to the main event scene in WWE. The company views him as a potentially big superstar, and they put that to the test this weekend at a live event in Canada. Reigns was given a headlining spot against Bray Wyatt in a Hamilton street fight, which featured interference from both Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins. WWE is showing a lot of faith in Reigns by letting him close out the show on top.
June 15, 2014
John Cena
A picture of a promotional poster for the upcoming WWE 2K15 video game, and it features John Cena, Bray Wyatt, Hulk Hogan and Antonio Cesaro, leading to rumors that these are the first four performers to be confirmed for the roster.
June 11, 2014
Mick Foley
"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
June 11, 2014
Bully Ray
Now that their contracts with TNA have officially expired, there has been some contact between Team 3D and WWE. The two sides are discussing a potential return to the company. The move may come as a shock to certain fans because there was a widespread belief that Bully Ray and Devon were never going to be able to work in WWE ever again due to backstage heat. That apparently is not the case.
October 17, 2014
Brandi Rhodes
Now that Justin Roberts has been given a release by WWE, fans are speculating as to who will replace him as the announcer for Monday Night Raw. Lilian Garcia is said to be ruled out because the Smackdown schedule works much better for her pursuit of music. Byron Saxton is just the backup for now. Brandi Rhodes and JoJo Offerman are the two primary candidates for the role.
October 16, 2014
Rey Mysterio
While the backstage heat between the two sides remains at a pretty high level, it does not appear that WWE will be giving a release to Rey Mysterio any time soon. Management has started to accept that the former world heavyweight champion will not be returning to work anytime soon, but they will not let him out of his contract to help another promotion out. WWE would rather just keep him on the sidelines for the time being, especially since Mysterio has reportedly stopped cashing in their checks.
October 15, 2014
Kurt Angle
Earlier in the week, it was reported that WWE had offered Kurt Angle a full time contract, which he turned down because he wanted a part time deal to preserve his body and health. There are speculations floating around that Triple H only made that offer because he knew that Angle would reject it. Some are still under the belief that HHH wants nothing to do with Angle and is attempting to block his return to the company.
October 15, 2014
Alexander Rusev
One of the ideas being floated around right now has Mark Henry doing his rumored heel turn at Hell in a Cell 2014. WWE has planted the seeds by having Henry helping Big Show out in his feud against Alexander Rusev and Lana. The belief is that management wants to use the feud to put Rusev closer to the main event scene, while protecting Big Show, which can be done if Henry turns and costs him the match at the pay per view.
October 15, 2014
Adrian Neville
WWE officials are a lot more observant than fans think that they are. The company routinely monitors the audience reaction to certain performers. As of late, management has noticed that the ovations that Adrian Neville has been receiving when working with the main roster has been superb. On some nights, he gets more of a reaction than the guys that have been on television regularly.
October 15, 2014
Dean Ambrose
WWE is promoting Hell in a Cell 2014 as having a double main event, and the reason behind that is simple. They do not believe that Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins are proven draws yet, even with the big steel structure and a highly entertaining feud behind them. Thus, the reliance on John Cena and Randy Orton, two guys that the company has relied on for years now, to help sell the pay per view.
October 14, 2014
Jeff Jarrett
While there has not been a ton of details revealed from the deal between New Japan Pro Wrestling and Global Force Wrestling, there are reports that have surfaced that Jeff Jarrett is looking to distribute content from the overseas promotion across the United States. His ability to do that would greatly increase if he were able to secure a national television deal, which he is rumored to have been working on over the past couple of months.
October 14, 2014
Mike Tenay
Another person that could be walking away from TNA in the near future is Mike Tenay, their longtime play by play commentator. His contract with the company expires in January, so he is expected to work until then. Many within the industry believe that a new television deal will be finalized and announced before then, so a contract extension for Tenay would not be out of the question.
October 14, 2014
Samoa Joe
Reports have surfaced that Samoa Joe and TNA parted ways after Bound For Glory 2014 once the contract between the two sides expired. As many already know, the company has been allowing top level performers to walk away because they simply do not want to make big financial commitments until a new television deal is secured. The belief is that Joe could be brought back on board once a new home on television has been found.
October 14, 2014
Daniel Bryan
Fans of Daniel Bryan were given a degree of optimism not too long ago when reports surfaced that he would be healthy enough to make a return at Royal Rumble 2015. However, new reports are coming out that the former world heavyweight champion is still have issues regaining strength in his arms, so the timetable is said to be pushed back to Wrestlemania 31.
October 14, 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
Bully Ray
During Bound For Glory 2014, Bully Ray and Devon specifically mentioned the Bullet Club, a stable in New Japan. That is of interest because the pay per view was promoted by Great Muta and Wrestle-1. This has led to speculation that Team 3D may end up signing with Jeff Jarrett and Global Force Wrestling because the company has a partnership with New Japan.
October 12, 2014
Alexander Rusev
A lot of speculation has arisen ever since Rock made a surprise appearance on Monday Night Raw and worked a segment with Alexander Rusev and Lana. Many are under the impression that a match between the two could take place at Wrestlemania 31. However, WWE does not appear to be heading in that direction.

Alexander Rusev
With only two matches confirmed for Hell in a Cell 2014, WWE is looking at building the under card with some filler matches. One of the top candidates is a bout between Sheamus and Miz. Management is leaning towards definitely doing that match because they need to build up Sheamus, so that he can be placed into a feud with Alexander Rusev next month.
