Rob Terry
Even though he is now back in TNA, Rob Terry still continues to work for other wrestling promotions.

El Torito
For those of you that did not watch the Payback 2014 kickoff match, El Torito defeated Hornswoggle with a flying top rope moonsault. Hornswoggle had gotten distracted by thinking that he won after pulling off the mask. Afterwards, Hornswoggle was forced to sit in a barber chair while El Torito shaved his head. Hornswoggle is now bald, and expect WWE to promote that on Monday Night Raw this week.

Bray Wyatt
In one of the more interesting opening segments in the history of Monday Night Raw, Bray Wyatt brought out a group of kids to sing to John Cena, who was cutting a promo in the middle of the steel cage. WWE then had the kids putting on the sheep mask and surrounding the ring, which caused Cena to be thoroughly disturbed. Wyatt laughed uncontrollably to end the segment.

Adrian Neville
While a lot of fans have already forgotten about him, a few still wonder about his whereabouts and status within WWE. It turns out that Camacho is still with the company, as he worked a WWE NXT television taping this week. He lost to Adrian Neville. His partner, Hunico, frequently works under the mask as the new Sin Cara, for those that are not aware.
March 2, 2014
Sin Cara

Sin Cara is going to be making his return to the wrestling ring soon, but it will not be for WWE. The masked star is set to work a show on February 1, 2014 down in Mexico, which is a further sign that a contract extension with WWE is not in the works.

Kane
After 17 years of portraying the character, Kane might be receiving a new gimmick soon. Rumors have been floating around that he might be bringing the Jacob Goodnight character from the See No Evil movie series to WWE television. The belief is that management wanted to make it easier to promote the film. Some feel that the story line started when Kane handed over his mask to Stephanie McMahon on the last episode of Monday Night Raw.
August 7, 2014
Tyson Kidd
Even though the mask has been designed and ordered, it looks like Tyson Kidd might not be doing that gimmick after all. Some were pushing for him to receive a new character and push on the main roster because of his long tenure with WWE. However, others are against the idea and want him to remain in WWE NXT to work with the developmental wrestlers.
June 12, 2014
Tyson Kidd
Earlier this week, it was revealed that WWE was planning to put Tyson Kidd under a mask, so that he can receive a push with his new character. Some further details have leaked out. It is now rumored that the gimmick will be a Luchador, which would be interesting because Kidd would be a Canadian performer pretending to be a Mexican wrestler.
May 30, 2014
Tyson Kidd
Rumors are floating around right now that WWE is considering a character change for Tyson Kidd. One of the ideas is to have him become a masked wrestler. Management reportedly feels that his character has been a lower card guy for so long that fans will have trouble viewing him as anything more. A mask would enable Kidd to have somewhat of a fresh start.
May 29, 2014
Hunico
Rumors are spreading quickly through the industry that Sheamus and Hunico were involved in a real life backstage fight during the Smackdown taping on Tuesday night.

Bret Hart
Years before the Bret Hart screwjob in Montreal, Vince McMahon pulled the same trick on Wendi Richter. Since she would not sign a new contract with the company, McMahon wanted to take the belt off of her, so instead of telling her about it, the future WWE CEO opted to put the Fabulous Moolah in a mask. Along with the referee, Moolah changed the ending and took the belt off of Richter, whom the legendary performer trained.
March 20, 2014
La Parka
For those of us that watched him in WCW, La Parka will forever have a small place the hearts of professional wrestling fans. The story of his mask has been a topic of interest for people. After going through several different characters and several different masks, the performer finally settled on the skeleton look because it was inspired by the Day of the Dead celebration that takes place in Mexico each year.
March 14, 2014
Hulk Hogan
Taking heavy influences from the design of the Grand Theft Auto video game, Jay Lethal has an awesome new shirt. It basically features him in cartoon mode, where he is Undertaker, Hulk Hogan and Randy Savage. It also appears that his character is wearing the mask previously worn by Sami Zayn as well.
February 9, 2014
Eric Young
Eric Young and Joseph Park, who worked under the mask as Abyss on Impact Wrestling this week, were heavily praised by TNA for their recent performance. Their hardcore match came off really well, both with the live audience and on television. Plus, their overall selling of the story line over the last few weeks have been better than expected.
February 8, 2014
Rey Mysterio

While the initial plans had him working a match against Sin Cara, WWE may have changed their mind on how to use Rey Mysterio at Wrestlemania 30. There are those within the company that are now leaning towards him working a match against Alberto Del Rio with his mask on the line.

January 18, 2014
Buddy Rose
In the opening match at Wrestlemania 1, Tito Santana defeated Buddy Rose, who was working underneath a mask as the Executioner, after applying the Figure Four leg lock. The match itself lasted less than five minutes, but it will forever be historic because it was the first match of the night.

Since there are a ton of rumors swirling around this weekend about Survivor Series 2014, Chris Jericho took it as an opportunity to tease the internet wrestling community. The former world heavyweight champion joked that he was going to be meeting up with Randy Orton and Sting for lunch, since all three of them are rumored to be at the pay per view tonight. Jericho performed a concert last night in Minnesota.
November 23, 2014
CM Punk
For those of you that are clinging on to the smaller glimmer of hope that CM Punk will return to WWE some day, there may possibly be some good news this week. Punk posted a warm message towards Paul Heyman, his former on screen manager and good friend in real life, on Twitter. That post was noticed by Triple H, who made it one of his Favorites. For those that are not keen to social media, that means that he approves of the message. It also shows that HHH isn't as upset with Punk as some people think he is.
November 23, 2014
Dixie Carter
Now that their long anticipated television deal with Destination America has been signed and sealed, Dixie Carter and the TNA management team will now shift their focus towards securing a television contract to continue airing Impact Wrestling in Canada. A deal seems imminent, as the company sounds highly confident in their ongoing negotiations with networks north of the border.
November 22, 2014
Kevin Steen
When you sign a developmental contract with WWE, more often than not, you're going to be spending a good amount of time in training and not on television. Of course, when you have the experience that Kevin Steen has, the wait is a lot shorter. The former ROH Heavyweight Champion, who is now going by the name of Kevin Owens, is scheduled to make his debut on December 11, 2014 at the Takeover: R Evolution event.
November 22, 2014
Erick Rowan
The surprising face turn for Erick Rowan recently left fans a bit confused, as there had been no signs of that happening. The reason for that is simply because WWE did not have it planned out. The move was done at the last minute when management found out that Sheamus was being forced into surgery to repair an assortment of ailments. Rowan went from not being scheduled for Survivor Series 2014 to being in the main event.
November 21, 2014
Dixie Carter
Now that the television deal is signed and sealed, Dixie Carter and her staff will be focusing on offering contracts to performers, both in house and free agents. TNA had allowed several of their starts to depart because they did not want to sign long term deals without knowing if they will remain on the air. It may become a bit of a race, as other employment options have sprung up for wrestlers over the last couple of months.
November 21, 2014
Santino Marella
Fans who tune into the next episode of Monday Night Raw will get an opportunity to see Santino Marella making his return to WWE. However, it is not the long rumored permanent one. The former Intercontinental Champion has been asked to make an appearance, so that he can promote his new movie with Larry the Cable Guy, who also happens to be the guest host of Raw. Marella is still working on making an official comeback some time in 2015.
November 21, 2014
Dixie Carter
One of the reasons why Dixie Carter found the Destination America deal more appealing than the others is because the network promised that they would make TNA a centerpiece. In addition to being given two hours a week for Impact Wrestling, the company will also be allowed to produce specials and secondary shows to be aired. The network is hoping to lure in professional wrestling fans to their other shows as well.
November 21, 2014
Mickie James
During a recent interview, Mickie James was asked about a possible WWE return. She reiterated that she was definitely interested in doing so. However, she firmly stated that she would only do so as an in ring performer. Mickie refuses to be a trainer, something that the company has reportedly shown interest in. Her reasoning for wanting to wrestle instead of train is because she wholeheartedly believes that she is better than the majority of divas in WWE.
November 21, 2014
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. The former world heavyweight champion has hired a new instructor in former ECW star Stevie Richards, who will be relocating to Atlanta to start his full time job soon.
November 20, 2014
Daniel Bryan
Fans at WWE live events have noticed that the company has been greatly reducing the price on Daniel Bryan merchandise over the last couple of weeks. That has led to some speculation about the future of the former world heavyweight champion, who has been out of action because of a severe neck injury. The belief is that management is simply trying to clear out the merchandise, and that it has no bearing on what will happen with Bryan.
November 20, 2014
Sheamus
Apparently, Sheamus is actually injured. Many were under the impression that the former world heavyweight champion was only doing a story line for television, but he posted a photo of himself on Twitter, going in for surgery. It does not appear to be extremely serious. The belief is that Sheamus is going on to repair several minor ailments that have been bugging him. He is expected to miss some time from WWE.
November 20, 2014
Sheamus
During a recent interview, Sheamus stated that he was a big comic book fan, and he would absolutely love to play Venom in the upcoming film. That has led to rumors about the former world heavyweight champion actually being in line for the role. That is simply not the case. He was basically expressing his desire. Nothing more than that. Hollywood will more than likely go with an established actor in the movie.
November 19, 2014
Bray Wyatt
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
Dixie Carter
After months of speculations, TNA has finally announced that they have a new television deal in place. Dixie Carter had promised everyone that it was going to happen, but there was a lot of skepticism that surrounded the statement. Impact Wrestling will now be aired on Destination America, a new network that is rapidly growing. No word yet on when the first episode will be airing, but the belief is that we might need to wait until January.
November 19, 2014
Wade Barrett
Another name that is going to be making a return to WWE in January is none other than Wade Barrett. His shoulders have healed up, well enough to where the former Intercontinental Champion is now able to lift some weights. Barrett needs a little bit of time in the gym, as his muscles have decreased a bit because he could not work out after the surgery. The belief is that he will be working Royal Rumble 2014.
November 18, 2014
Chris Jericho
Fans got a quick glimpse of Chris Jericho this week, as the former world heavyweight champion decided to help out WWE on the European tour. Now, reports have surfaced that Jericho is going to be making his return to the company in early January, just in time to get thrown into the Royal Rumble 2015 pay per view. The belief is that he will be sticking around, so that he can get a match at Wrestlemania 31.
November 18, 2014
Fandango
Over the last couple of weeks, fans have noticed that Fandango has been absent from WWE television shows. That naturally lead to some rumors about his release. The dancing star is just fine. Fandango revealed that he has modified his gimmick a bit and will be making his return at the Survivor Series 2014 kickoff show. His character will also be picking up Rosa Mendes as his new valet.
November 18, 2014
Rock
After conquering the world of professional wrestling and Hollywood, the Rock has earned himself the right to live his life as he pleases. One of the things that the former WWE champion always wanted to try was stand up comedy. He pleasantly surprised some people at the Hollywood Improv this week when he showed up unannounced and did a quick routine. No word yet on whether or not the Rock plans to keep doing shows.
November 18, 2014
Tara
Generally, Tara is usually upbeat and fun on social media, but the former TNA Knockout is going through some drama right now. She posted the phone number for a woman named Liz on Twitter. When asked by fans as to who that is, Tara stated that it was the girl that has been sending text messages to her husband during all hours of the day and night. In another interesting move, Tara also retweeted a post from someone in regards to divorce, leading to speculations that her marriage could be on the rocks.
