Eva Marie
Just like she was last year, Eva Marie is again a candidate in the Maxim Hot 100, which basically allows fans to vote on which female celebrity they deem to be the most attractive. The WWE diva was nominated last year as well. Eva Marie is the only wrestling related personality that you can vote for, unless you count Maria Menounos.

Eva Marie
Since he has been featured on Total Divas this season, interest in Jonathan Coyle, the husband of WWE star Eva Marie, has grown exponentially. He is a trainer in Orange County, and being the husband of a celebrity should help garner interest in his business. Jonathan also will be appearing in an upcoming issue of GQ magazine as a model.

Mr T
In a rather interesting move, there were minimal Wrestlemania 30 celebrities involved in the pay per view. WWE generally likes having as many famous faces around as possible, in an attempt to generate interest from the mainstream media, but the company opted to focus more on wrestling this year. Mr T was the most featured celebrity on the show this year.

Eva Marie
Now that she is starting to make her name known, thanks to appearances on Total Divas and Monday Night Raw, a lot of people have been looking into the net worth of Eva Marie. While some sites like Celebrity Net Worth have been attempting to draw in those WWE fans to their site, it is much too soon for any of that relevant data about her financial situation to be available.

Hulk Hogan
Celebrity DBI, a website that tracks the name value of celebrities, has Hulk Hogan at 96% popularity, which puts him just below NBA legend Michael Jordan, who is sitting at 98%. His cultural relevance was the reason why he was able to command a huge salary from TNA and why he was able to get Vince McMahon to hand him big checks now.

Maria Kanellis
In a rather surprising move, WWE has decided to release Maria Kanellis from her contract. The move is a bit unexpected as she was recently voted by fans as the Diva of the Year. Plus, she has an upcoming appearance on Celebrity Apprentice. The belief is that management is upset with her desire to pursue outside business opportunities.

Previously, management had instructed Wyatt to avoid doing any media appearances and interviews to preserve his character. Now, they're having him work a huge public event with John Cena, Batista, Paige and Bruno Sammartino.

Bruno Sammartino
"I must tell you that I commented that night when he did come on stage with his two beautiful little girls looking so proud, as he was as well, but when they left and went to the back, I noticed it even more... I felt that he wasn't walking well and I thought that was due to some injuries that caused that. I also noticed that when he came to speak, that he seemed, I don't want to say out of breath, but he was sweating and all that. I didn't think too much of it on the night and thought maybe he was nervous or whatever, but I just didn't feel like there was something wrong with him and I had no idea whatsoever as to what was to follow, that was quite a shock." - Bruno Sammartino discusses Ultimate Warrior condition before death

Bruno Sammartino
Rumors have it that Triple H is the main driving force behind Bruno Sammartino staying involved with WWE. The company already has received his biggest marketing contributions when he was inducted into the hall of fame, but since HHH is a big fan of Sammartino, the two sides are maintaining a working relationship. Sammartino was at Wrestlemania 30 weekend, even though he was not featured on screen.

Triple H
Last year, WWE unveiled an Andre the Giant statue, which impressed a lot of fans and wrestlers alike, and it looks like the company might be making it an annual thing. At an Axxess event during Wrestlemania 30 week, Triple H unveiled a new Bruno Sammartino statue. The legendary former world champion was there in attendance as well.

Bruno Sammartino
It appears that the legendary Bruno Sammartino has decided to go off the grid, as the former WWE champion has been avoiding Twitter since the end of August. Prior to that, he was routinely providing updates to his fans through the social media site. He was quite active on there around the time of his induction into the WWE hall of fame.

David Sammartino
When his son first approached him about possible joining the professional wrestling business, Bruno Sammartino was understandably hesitant to give his blessings, so David Sammartino took it upon him to move down south and train with another wrestler. Upon seeing that his son was serious, Bruno then decided to teach David in the ring.

Bruno Sammartino

A group of people in Pittsburgh have put together the time and effort required to erect a statue of wrestling legend Bruno Sammartino, but the owners of the land where the old Civic Arena stands are against the idea and have placed a stoppage on those particular plans.

Bruno Sammartino

"Everything just went so quiet, it was a sellout, can you imagine that, here I am, wrestling my hero, the champ, and I end up winning the belt, one, two, three, a knee drop of the top, and I say, "where is the belt?" Finally, he raises my hand and he says, go back to the dressing room; you'll get the belt back there. They were afraid of a riot. I didn't pick up on it, but I did notice the people were very, very quiet. You could hear a pin drop, because they couldn't believe that Bruno got defeated after what, seven years? As far as Bruno was concerned, a lot of people don't realize, but those rings up there in New York are the boxing rings, the four ropes and a lot more stable base on the ring and not as much spring on the ring. Consequently us wrestlers, taking big back drops and suplexes on that, it ends up taking a toll on the body a lot more, so I really believe that Bruno needed the time off maybe surgery, maybe just get some rest. You know, I can imagine wrestling nearly every night and the pressure is on you because you're the champion and you have to draw money, so it was the whole idea that Bruno didn't mind the situation that much, because he wanted time off any way."
