Brock Lesnar
When Bo Dallas was defeated by R Truth on Monday Night Raw this week, more than a few eyebrows were raised because the streak was ended in such an irrelevant manner. Rumors are floating around now that WWE opted to do this because they did not want to have another streak in the company now that Brock Lesnar has made his return. Management wants the streak emphasis to be on Lesnar beating Undertaker at Wrestlemania 30.

Brock Lesnar
For those of you that missed Monday Night Raw this week, Brock Lesnar made his much anticipated return to WWE and challenged John Cena at Summerslam 2014 for the world heavyweight championship.

Brock Lesnar
There is a feeling within the WWE locker room that management does not want Daniel Bryan back in the main event scene when he makes his return. Some are pointing out how he is being brought back in a minimum role at Money in the Bank 2014 as a sign of WWE downplaying his importance. Guys like Batista and Brock Lesnar would not be utilized in such a manner when they come back from their hiatus.

The rumors of John Cena winning the WWE title at Money in the Bank 2014 just got hotter now that the company has accidentally revealed a poster for Summerslam 2014, which features what looks like a main event match between Cena and Brock Lesnar.

Brock Lesnar
"I spoke to them in November about coming back in January, but neither of us could really agree on what it was I would be doing, and not in a bad way. If I'm going to come back, what am I going to be doing at WrestleMania? Let's see, we've got Batista coming back, we've got Brock Lesnar coming back, we've got Undertaker coming back, we've got Hulk Hogan coming back, we've got the ascension of Bray Wyatt, we've got the ascension of The Shield, Cesaro's ready to go and Daniel Bryan's ready to go. Where do I fit in? We have a great relationship, but if it doesn't work for both of us, then it won't happen. When the time comes where it does, then it will. It's as simple as that." - Chris Jericho discusses a potentail WWE return

Brock Lesnar
After taking a week off following his much anticipated return, the Undertaker is now scheduled to be on every episode of Monday Night Raw from now until Wrestlemania 30. His opponent Brock Lesnar has another two weeks off of television, so it will be interesting to see how WWE plays things up with just the Undertaker for a couple of episodes.
March 7, 2014
Brock Lesnar
Despite all the hype about a potential return by CM Punk, ratings for Monday Night Raw surprisingly dropped this week.

March 5, 2014
Brock Lesnar
Since a lot of fans marked out over his return on Monday Night Raw this week, many have naturally wondered if we would be seeing the Undertaker again before his match against Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania 30.

February 26, 2014
Brock Lesnar
Rumors coming out of WWE was that management had initially planned on surprising the fans by having Brock Lesnar, who is not scheduled to return until Monday Night Raw, show up at Elimination Chamber 2014 and replacing Christian in the main event.

February 23, 2014
Brock Lesnar
It looks like the episode of Monday Night Raw on February 24 is going to be one of the most memorable ones in quite some time.

February 10, 2014

February 5, 2014
Brock Lesnar

In a move that might have been encouraged by Dana White to promote the potential return, Alistair Overeem called out Brock Lesnar after defeating Frank Mir at a UFC event this past weekend. Lesnar is attempting to work with WWE on making his MMA return possible.

February 3, 2014
Brock Lesnar

With Brock Lesnar and Batista already confirmed for the event, there are rumors that Sheamus might not be making his return at the Royal Rumble. WWE wants him on the Wrestlemania card, so they do not want his return to be overshadowed.

December 10, 2013
Kurt Angle
During a recent interview, Kurt Angle revealed that he only has another month left on his contract with TNA. He actually stated September 21 as being the final day of the deal. As usual, Angle left open the possibility of making a return to WWE, while not ruling out an extension with TNA. The former world heavyweight champion stated that no matter where he signs his last deal, it will have to be a part time schedule.
August 20, 2014
Kurt Angle
There are rumors floating around right now that Vince McMahon is not interested in seeing Kurt Angle making a return to WWE. However, that appears to just be speculation. While management has been trying to cut back on spending, the belief is that they would open the check book for Angle since he is a superb performer who can draw in a good amount of fans.
August 18, 2014
Santino Marella
Feeling like he did not want to be forced out of the ring, Santino Marella is already working on making a comeback. The belief is that WWE wants that return to happen in their ring. The company still believes Marella to be an asset, as evident by the fact that they gave him a new three year contract a couple of months ago. No time frame has been given for the Marella return yet.
August 18, 2014
Austin Aries
Back in July, Austin Aries decided to go silent on Twitter because he was protesting the decision by TNA to allow fans to vote on the return of the six sided ring. For those that are wondering, the X Division Champion has already came back to the social media website. He has been posting regularly. Aries is even promoting Impact Wrestling on there, so it looks like he's back on good terms with the company.
August 16, 2014
Daniel Bryan
While a lot of fans are under the impression that his return to WWE is a certainty, Daniel Bryan is not nearly as confident. He understands his body well enough, and he has spoken with quite a few doctors on the matter. Bryan is leaving open the possibility that he may never wrestle again because of the injured neck. The former world heavyweight champion has dismissed rumors that he will be back by Royal Rumble 2015.
August 16, 2014
Evan Bourne
The belief within the industry is that Evan Bourne is hoping to make a return to WWE some day. He recently did a shoot interview, but the video was rather tame. He did not reveal too many secrets, and he did not show a ton of animosity towards the company. If Bourne can show that he can stay sober and injury free, then WWE might be willing to give him another chance since he did have a little bit of a fan base.
August 15, 2014
David Otunga
When Jennifer Hudson told the media that she was not pleased with idea of David Otunga leaving the family for extended periods of time by returning to a full time schedule with WWE, many were under the belief that it was just for public relations. However, there are those that believe that it might be a legitimate thing, as Otunga has yet to hit the road again. WWE is said to be interested in a return.
August 13, 2014
Vickie Guerrero
Unless something drastic happens with her new career, do not expect Vickie Guerrero to be making a return to WWE anytime soon. However, the door has been left open by the company for that to take place in the future if she wishes to do so. Management surprised a lot of people by giving Guerrero a positive sendoff on Monday Night Raw, which solidified the belief that the company would welcome her with open arms again some day.
August 13, 2014
Hulk Hogan
While a lot of fans are still under the impression that Hulk Hogan is really training to make an in ring return for WWE, no discussions are taking place within the company, as many people are already aware that the former world heavyweight champion is in no shape to wrestle. Vince McMahon would gladly pull the trigger on something like this since it would generate a ton of publicity, but he knows it will not be taking place.
August 8, 2014
Batista
There are rumors floating around that Batista might not actually return to WWE after all. Guardians of the Galaxy has been quite successful, and the second movie has already been signed. Batista is already attached to the Kickboxer remake. He may come back to WWE for one more appearance, but the risk of being injured in the wrestling ring might not make much sense any more to a Hollywood star.
August 8, 2014
Ashley Flair
Ever since his return to WWE, Ric Flair has just been floating around, making random appearances and working as a special guest referee at live events. It looks like management may have something for him to do very soon, as Ashley Flair has reportedly been earmarked as the next developmental wrestler to be called up to the main roster.
August 7, 2014
Alexander Rusev
On Monday Night Raw this week, fans witnessed Mark Henry making his return and attacking Damien Sandow. The belief is that he will be given a slight push from WWE, so that he can be utilized in an upcoming feud with Alexander Rusev, who desperately needs people to work against after he is done with Jack Swagger. Beating a performer as big as Henry should help further establish Rusev as a top level heel.
August 5, 2014
Chris Jericho
"No, I've been there and done it against Chris Jericho and I proved a point, so there's no sense in jeopardizing that. Everyone who saw me work that match said I did good for my age. They have a good memory of that and I'd like to leave it at that. I do know some of the older guys who have come back and tried to work in the ring and it's just heartbreaking to see. I don't want to risk all that because the fans still have a pretty good image of me and my last time in the ring." - Ricky Steamboat talking about a potential return to WWE
August 5, 2014
CM Punk
If you've been holding your breath in hopes of CM Punk returning to WWE, you should probably exhale right about now. Paul Heyman revealed in an interview that he does not believe that the former world heavyweight champion will ever lace up the boots again. He also noted that WWE will not allow Punk to return to the company because management really dislikes how he walked out on his contract.
August 5, 2014
Batista
Some bad news for fans who were upset with WWE giving Batista a big push upon his return. When he comes back around again, his push could be much bigger than the previous one. The former world heavyweight champion has gained even more name value since Guardians of the Galaxy is set to break a couple of records at the box office. A title reign for Batista is not out of the question.
August 3, 2014
Tamina Snuka
In a sign of just how determined she is, Tamina Snuka is now done with physical therapy. Her recovery from a torn ACL back in May is going much quicker than many had expected. She is still wearing a brace on her leg, but she is able to walk and move around fairly well. Initially, Tamina was supposed to be out for the rest of the year, but there is now a chance that she could be making a return earlier than that.
August 2, 2014
Kelly Kelly
It looks like Kelly Kelly will be the next one to do a wedding. The former WWE diva revealed that she is now engaged to her long time boyfriend. NHL star Sheldon Souray proposed to her, and she agreed to marry him. The chances of her making a return to WWE was extremely low before, and the marriage makes it even less likely now.
August 2, 2014
Daniel Bryan
With his health being quite the uncertainty at this point in time, there are all sorts of rumors floating around about the return of Daniel Bryan. The latest one has the former WWE champion coming back at Royal Rumble 2015. Much of that is speculation, though, since Bryan needs to go in for another surgery, and there's no telling how his body will react to the procedure.
August 2, 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
CM Punk
While doing an interview on the red carpet, CM Punk was asked about a potential return to WWE down the line, and he decided to take the opportunity to poke humor at the situation. The former world heavyweight champion stated that he would never ever return to WWE. He was obviously joking, but that has caused some confusion with fans who were not paying close attention to his tone during the interview.
July 22, 2014
Brock Lesnar
With Night of Champions 2014 being a crucial pay per view in terms of drawing in WWE Network subscribers, management is going to be stacking the deck a bit. They knew that they needed their two biggest draws in the main event. That's why it has now been officially announced that John Cena has activated his rematch clause against Brock Lesnar, and the two will tangle again for the world heavyweight championship.
August 20, 2014
Brock Lesnar
It will be interesting to see how WWE handles the promotion of the world heavyweight championship over the next few weeks. Brock Lesnar is not scheduled to be back on television for approximately a month. John Cena, who is returning next week, is expected to get his rematch story line. Paul Heyman is great at what he does, but management will be curious to see how the audience reacts to a missing champion.
August 19, 2014
Alberto Del Rio
A lot of eyes in the industry are on Alberto Del Rio right now, as many want to see if he will pursue a lawsuit against WWE. The company has reportedly banned him from working in the United States for a year. Back when Brock Lesnar filed a similar lawsuit, the judge was very close to ruling in his favor. Both sides agreed to a settlement instead. If Del Rio were to file the lawsuit and win the case, then that changes things in the industry quite a bit.
August 19, 2014
Brock Lesnar
When Brock Lesnar interrupted the birthday celebration for Hulk Hogan on Monday Night Raw last week, he went off script a bit. The former UFC Heavyweight Champion said, "Party's over, grandpa." That was not a line fed to him by the WWE creative department. Reports are surfacing that Lesnar took that jab on his own or had help from Paul Heyman in coming up with that line.
August 18, 2014
Vince McMahon
Reports are surfacing that there is some backstage heat between Vince McMahon and Triple H at the moment over the main event of Wrestlemania 31. McMahon wants Brock Lesnar to defend the title against the Rock, as he feels that those two guys would produce the biggest draw of a match for WWE. HHH, however, wants the company to elevate Roman Reigns by having him challenge Lesnar.

Brock Lesnar
An idea being floated around backstage in WWE has Antonio Cesaro and Paul Heyman engaging in a big feud in the next couple of months.

Brock Lesnar
While doing an interview with the Huffington Post to promote his upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy movie, Batista discussed a few topics regarding WWE. He surprisingly decided to bash the company for their decision to have Brock Lesnar end the Undertaker winning streak at Wrestlemania 30. Batista stated that it made no sense for WWE to go that route.
July 29, 2014
Undertaker
Rumors are swirling that the Undertaker was not supposed to have lost to Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania 30, thanks to some comments made by former WWE stars. Some are saying that he did not kick out of the pin attempt because he was legitimately knocked out from the move. Since the referees are instructed to go through with the count, there is a possibility that it may be true.
July 26, 2014
Brock Lesnar
During a recent podcast interview with Jim Ross, Kurt Angle confirmed the longstanding rumors that he and Brock Lesnar got into a backstage fight when both were with WWE. Angle stated that he initiated the brawl with Lesnar because Lesnar was telling the other wrestlers that Angle was too small for him to wrestle. The incident was more of an amateur wrestling match than a fist fight.
July 24, 2014
Antonio Cesaro
A lot of wrestling fans were a bit confused on Monday Night Raw this week when it was revealed that Paul Heyman and Antonio Cesaro are no longer together. The reason for the abrupt split is because WWE wants Heyman to be associated only with Brock Lesnar, who is rumored to be returning as soon as the night after WWE Battleground 2014. The former UFC champion is rumored to be on the receiving end of a huge push in the coming months.
July 15, 2014
Undertaker
While most wrestling fans would love to see him working a match at Wrestlemania 31, Undertaker is actually said to be quite fine with retirement. He didn't make the decision to drop the winning streak to Brock Lesnar, but he reportedly does not mind ending his career on the losing end of a match. WWE wants him back, but the ball is entirely in the court of the Undertaker. For what it's worth, the legend is still staying in shape and working out.
July 5, 2014
Undertaker
While it is still quite a long time away, WWE currently has plans penciled in for Roman Reigns at Wrestlemania 31. The company wants him to challenge Brock Lesnar at the event, and they're going to heavily push the fact that Reigns is going up against the only man that has ever defeated Undertaker at the biggest pay per view event of the year. The winning moment is supposed to cement Reigns as the top star in WWE.
July 2, 2014
Michelle McCool
Earlier in the week, it was revealed that Michelle McCool had visited the WWE Performance Center to help train some of the developmental divas. That led to speculations that Undertaker was there as well. Contrary to the rumors, he was not there. The legendary performer has largely stayed away from the business since his match against Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania 30.
June 26, 2014
Daniel Bryan
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
Brock Lesnar
Some new rumors have popped up in regards to Brock Lesnar coming back to WWE. Since Daniel Bryan is still on the shelf, management wants to utilize Lesnar in a higher profile role. That desire might even cause the company to change their mind about who comes out as the new heavyweight champion at Money in the Bank 2014. Initially, the belief was that a heel was going to win the belt and feud with Bryan, but there is a strong chance now that a face will win, so that they can defend against Lesnar.

Undertaker
There are still a good amount of people backstage in WWE that are questioning the decision to have Undertaker lose his winning streak to Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania 30. Some feel that the moment did not turn out exactly as Vince McMahon had hoped that it would. However, no one is willing to bring it up to the WWE CEO, as it was a decision he made on his own.
May 29, 2014
Brock Lesnar
Even though he is now a WWE star again, Brock Lesnar still keeps up with the world of MMA. The former UFC Heavyweight Champion recently contacted Dana White to ask the company president for a favor. Lesnar needed help convincing close friend Pat Berry to retire because his health was being jeopardized. White did not feel that he had enough sway to make Berry quit the sport.
