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.

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

Triple H
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.

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

"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."

Brutus Beefcake

Sheamus
Those that watched Monday Night Raw this week may have noticed that Sheamus was not in attendance. The former WWE champion will also not be appearing on the next episode of Smackdown, either. That's because the Irish star has been taken off of the road due to a severe flu. The illness is probably quite bad since Sheamus has been known to work through injuries before.

July 23, 2014
Brooke Tessmacher
In a sign that the financial situation in TNA is not as bad as many make it out to be, the company has signed new deals with three of their performers. Sam Shaw and Brooke Tessmacher are signed to new multiple year contracts, while international star Seiya Sanada has agreed to a one year deal. There were a lot of concerns about the company when they released several performers, so much of that should be alleviated now that they are signing new deals with their workers.

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.

This is the start of the long rumored stable, which has already been compared to the Nation of Domination by fans online.
July 22, 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.

July 22, 2014
Brie Bella

July 21, 2014
Road Dogg
Since the company has been releasing people left and right due to the budget cuts, there is some understandable paranoia backstage in WWE nowadays. Recently, people were under the impression that Road Dogg had been released because he was not around for a couple of the television taping. However, it turned out to be a false alarm, as the former Intercontinental Champion was simply on vacation.
July 21, 2014
Ricky Steamboat
Something must have changed drastically backstage in WWE, as Ricky Steamboat appears to be back with the company. The legendary performer had to inform promoters that he would no longer be able to make appearances unless they contacted WWE to get approval. Steamboat booked himself on a lot of independent wrestling shows after being released from the company.
July 21, 2014
Alexander Rusev
Vince McMahon decided to take a huge gamble at WWE Battleground 2014 when he had Lana and Alexander Rusev cutting a promo that hinted about the recent airplane disaster in the Ukraine.

It got to the point where WWE even released a official statement with a veiled jab at those who are complaining.
July 21, 2014
John Cena
After successfully retaining the heavyweight championship at WWE Battleground 2014, many would expect John Cena to be at Monday Night Raw for some sort of victory promo.

July 21, 2014
CM Punk
One the things that made Kenta Kobayashi so famous in Japan was his diverse moves set. Unfortunately, though, a lot of his signature maneuvers cannot e utilized in WWE. His Go 2 Sleep finisher is commonly associated with CM Punk nowadays. His knee finisher and submission move are both being used by Daniel Bryan. The belief is that WWE will have him come up with new moves in developmental.

July 19, 2014
Jerry Lawler
While he receives a bad rap from a lot of fans due to WWE giving him a heavyweight championship run a couple of years back, Miz is actually very much a student of the game. He has remained motivated despite not being given a push in a while. Miz has also been studying legendary actor Andy Kaufman, who will forever have a place in wrestling history thanks to his memorable story line with Jerry Lawler during the 1980s, so that he can improve his gimmick and character.
