Ultimate Warrior
In times of tragedy, the worst of the worst comes out, in order to take advantage of the situation. Several people have been selling illegal Ultimate Warrior merchandise shortly after the WWE legend died last week. Lawyers for his marketing company have already sent out cease and desist letters to over 100 different people, demanding that they quit selling products with his likeness attached.

Rey Mysterio
Since the masked performer has yet to put his signature on a brand new contract, WWE has been purposely downplaying his role on Monday Night Raw and Smackdown. However, management does indeed want to keep Rey Mysterio around for at least another year, as they feel that he still has some merchandise value. Plus, he is already involved in the Flintstones movie.
March 19, 2014
Rey Mysterio
With his contract expiring in a few weeks, things might have just became easier for WWE to let Rey Mysterio walk away. Merchandise sales for the masked superstar have dropped as of late. His consistent ability to generate revenue for the company was a big reason why they never gave up on Mysterio as his body repeatedly failed him over the years.
March 14, 2014
Hunico
While there is a legal storm brewing between the two sides, there is now a chance that WWE might not be willing to fight with Sin Cara over the use of the name, as the value of the character has dropped tremendously over the last couple of weeks. When merchandise sales remained strong, management utilized Hunico in the role to help keep that going. The numbers have since dropped.
March 14, 2014
CM Punk
For the longest time there, CM Punk was the second best when it comes to moving merchandise. The fact that he was only behind John Cena is a big reason why Vince McMahon wants him back in WWE. Well, his absence has caused Daniel Bryan, whose popularity has remained strong despite not being given the title, to move up into the second spot now.
March 14, 2014
Steve Austin
Since the company was so focused on other wrestlers over the last couple of months, Steve Austin has not been a focal point for WWE heading into Wrestlemania 30, but there is now a change, as management wants to do a big merchandise push in the coming months. Despite not being there any more, Austin still remains as one of the top merchandise sellers for WWE.
March 13, 2014
Jim Ross
During his podcast interview with Jim Ross, the topic of John Cena doing a heel turn was brought up with Steve Austin. The former WWE star was adamant that the move should not happen. Austin pointed out that his own heel turn was a disaster because it ruined his merchandise sales. He feels that the same would happen if Cena were to make the turn.
March 6, 2014
CM Punk
In the past, Vince McMahon was quick to bury wrestlers who did anything remotely negative towards WWE, so it is quite telling that the CEO has opted to remain quiet on CM Punk. The belief is that McMahon really is hoping that Punk changes his mind and returns because he moves a lot of merchandise and is quite the draw for the company.
March 6, 2014
Sin Cara
Despite being sent legal threats from the company, it appears that Sin Cara has opted to be defiant towards WWE. The masked wrestler recently won a championship down in Mexico while using the name and character, both of which he claims ownership to. New merchandise has been made despite the possibility of a lawsuit coming.
March 5, 2014
Sting
While things have been quiet as of late, the belief is that WWE is still negotiating with Sting on a contract. It will not be the type of deal that fans have been longing for over the last couple of years. The discussions now have been leaning more towards merchandise and a hall of fame induction at Wrestlemania 31.
February 21, 2014
CM Punk
As is expected, there are several people backstage within WWE that are trying to discredit CM Punk and his value to the company. Some are stating that he was not much of a draw to live events and pay per view events. His supporters, however, are pointing out that he sold the most merchandise behind John Cena.
February 13, 2014
Hunico
Hunico might be cashing in a nice pay per view bonus check at Wrestlemania 30 this year, as WWE still has interest in using the Sin Cara character at the event. Merchandise sales have remained strong, and the company wants to continue to capitalize. There may be a lawsuit coming from the original performer, though.
February 12, 2014
CM Punk
While there are still fans clamoring for him to move down the card, John Cena should remain high in the eyes of WWE officials, as his merchandise is still the top movers. Randy Orton and CM Punk round out the top three, with Daniel Bryan coming in at fourth. Sin Cara still remains a top seller.
February 6, 2014
Sin Cara

Even though he did not work the recent European tour, merchandise sales for items featuring Sin Cara were pretty high, which helps him get back on the graces of people in management.

November 20, 2013
Big Show

Even though his character is banned from WWE, a new shirt for Big Show has just been released.

November 1, 2013
Brock Lesnar
While a lot of people assume that he is an asshole because of his reserved nature, Brock Lesnar actually impressed quite a bit of people in WWE with the amount of respect that he showed the Undertaker at Wrestlemania 30. Not only did he thanks Undertaker in the ring for letting him beat the streak, Lesnar also rode to the hospital afterwards to visit Undertaker.
April 15, 2014
Brock Lesnar
There was actually a push backstage in WWE to have Jim Ross doing commentary at Wrestlemania 30. The legendary performer was penciled in to call the match between Brock Lesnar and Undertaker. WWE opted against the idea because they were concerned that fans might be able to figure out that Undertaker was going to be losing the match since Ross was brought back for the occasion.
April 13, 2014
Antonio Cesaro
As of right now, there are plans backstage to give Antonio Cesaro a huge push. Pairing him with a great talker like Paul Heyman was the start of that. There are even those in WWE that are pushing for Cesaro to be pushed high enough over the next year, so that he can be thrown into a match against Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania 31, where Heyman would play a pivotal role in the story.
April 12, 2014
Brock Lesnar
While he only made an in ring appearance at the big pay per view this year, Rock is being penciled in to work a match at Wrestlemania 31. WWE actually wants to build the entire event around him. A hall of fame induction is being discussed as well. As far as opponents are concerned, the top candidate to face the Rock at Wrestlemania is Brock Lesnar.

Vince McMahon
Some more details have been revealed about the shocking loss that the Undertaker suffered at Wrestlemania 30 to Brock Lesnar. While some are under the assumption that Undertaker made the decision, it was actually Vince McMahon who made that call. He informed Undertaker of his choice, and the legendary performer did not protest it, so it went through.
April 11, 2014
Brock Lesnar
While the audience was quite jovial towards him during Monday Night Raw, there are no plans in place for WWE to do a face turn for Brock Lesnar, as the company feels that he is much more of a draw as a dominant heel. The fans were basically cheering for the tremendous promo that Paul Heyman was cutting about the end of the Undertaker streak.
April 10, 2014
Brock Lesnar
WWE has now decided to put the Undertaker into the upcoming Flintstones movie. The belief is that he was added to help alleviate the loss of CM Punk, whose role in the film has been replaced by Rey Mysterio. WWE still plans on having a working relationship with Undertaker, even if he decides to retire after his Wrestlemania 30 match against Brock Lesnar.
April 10, 2014
Undertaker
Since shock was rampant, the widespread belief among wrestling fans was that the ending of the Undertaker match at Wrestlemania 30 was a botch. Some even went as far as to say that Brock Lesnar was not supposed to win. However, the reason why the ending appeared off was because Undertaker was working with a concussion, and Lesnar had to work as a ring general, a role that he is not accustomed to.
April 9, 2014
Undertaker
Gambling sites decided to allow people to bet on the matches at Wrestlemania 30, despite the entire show being a scripted event. It came back to bite them in the ass, as a lot of people bet on Brock Lesnar to beat the Undertaker. Things were so bad that the sites actually had to change the odds and skew things towards Lesnar. It was too late, though, and they ended up having to shell out a lot of money on the bets.
April 9, 2014
Brock Lesnar
There were much discussions backstage in WWE over the past couple of weeks about what the company would do with Paul Heyman once Brock Lesnar takes his extended break again. Several names were tossed around before management opted to pair him up with Antonio Cesaro. The segment on Monday Night Raw turned out better than expected.
April 8, 2014
Undertaker
While the world was definitely shocked and disappointed with the ending of the match, several fans in attendance at Wrestlemania 30 took it to another level. Some left immediately after Undertaker was pinned by Brock Lesnar, while others were seen crying in the stands. WWE knew that this shocking ending would receive quite a reaction.
April 7, 2014
Undertaker
The majority of the sellout audience at Wrestlemania 30 were rooting for the Undertaker to beat Brock Lesnar, but his biggest fan of the evening might have been his wife, former WWE diva Michelle McCool. She was in attendance in New Orleans, and she looked just as emotional as everyone else did when the shocking ending happened.
April 7, 2014
Brock Lesnar
Since a lot of fans were in disbelief, there were rumors floating around that the Undertaker ending at Wrestlemania 30 was not planned. Some believed that Brock Lesnar went into business for himself. That was not the case, as WWE had the finished planned for quite some time now. They kept things as much of a secret as they could.
April 7, 2014
Brock Lesnar
Considering how brutal the match at Wrestlemania 30 was for him, it comes as no surprise to many backstage that Undertaker was taken to a local hospital in an ambulance after taking a beating from Brock Lesnar. The fear was that Undertaker has an injured neck. Doctors also checked for a possible concussion. The belief is that Undertaker went all out for what could be his final match in WWE.
April 7, 2014
Randy Orton
Considering how incredible the show was, WWE should not have any issues with coming up with Wrestlemania 30 highlights to show on Monday Night Raw this week. Brock Lesnar, Undertaker, Hulk Hogan, Steve Austin, Rock, Daniel Bryan, Triple H, Batista, John Cena, Bray Wyatt, Randy Orton, Kofi Kingston, Big Show and Antonio Cesaro provided plenty of memorable Wrestlemania moments.
April 7, 2014
Brock Lesnar
The show has only been over for a couple of hours, but there have been hundreds of Wrestlemania 30 reviews already written. The vast majority of them are skewed a bit, as writers were heavily disappointed that Brock Lesnar was allowed to end the Wrestlemania winning streak of the Undertaker. Thus, there are a lot of negative reviews for the pay per view.
April 7, 2014
Undertaker
In the most shocking moment of Wrestlemania 30, the Undertaker was defeated by Brock Lesnar after succumbing to his third F-5 finishing move. The winning streak has come to an end, and the Undertaker is now 21-1 at Wrestlemania. The entire Superdome was shocked and silenced by the moment. The audience angrily chanted at Lesnar, before showing respect to Undertaker.
April 6, 2014
John Cena
While he is still viewed as the top star in the company, John Cena will have plenty of time to watch the second half of Wrestlemania 30, as the former world heavyweight champion is scheduled to work against Bray Wyatt in the middle of the show.

Arn Anderson
Even though the truth has been out there for several years now, a lot of wrestling fans are still under the belief that Ole Anderson and Arn Anderson are brothers in real life. They're not. The relationship was created for their on screen characters to help Arn connect with the audience quicker because Ole was already established in the territory.
April 4, 2014
Uncle Elmer
Back during the 1980s, one of the most talked about segment in professional wrestling was when Uncle Elmer got married on national television. It was an actual wedding, as the performer was really wanting to marry his longtime girlfriend. When he approached Vince McMahon about it, the promoter loved the idea and decided to make it a draw for WWE.
April 4, 2014
Bobby Eaton
One of the biggest mysteries in professional wrestling involves Dennis Condrey and his decision to walk away from the Midnight Express. When asked about the situation, Bobby Eaton said that his former tag team partner basically left without saying a word to him for two years. Condrey reportedly did not inform Jim Cornette or the NWA, either.
April 2, 2014
Jim Cornette
While a lot of performers will say that they always wanted to be involved in the professional wrestling industry, Jim Cornette actually means it.

March 21, 2014
Bobby Eaton
Despite being one of the best performers in the history of professional wrestling, Ric Flair has opted against training others in the art of the game. In fact, the former NWA champion has only formally trained one person in his career. That man is Stan Lane, who formed the legendary Midnight Express tag team with Bobby Eaton during the 1980s.
March 20, 2014
Mr Fuji
When the future WWE Hall of Fame inductee made his debut in professional wrestling in 1965, there were not a lot of prominent Asia people in the country, so Harry Fujiwara, who was actually born in the United States, opted to stop using his real name and shortened it to Mr Fuji. It was easier for promoters and fans to spell and pronounce, and the move paid off rather well.
March 20, 2014
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.
