Austin Aries
If you're a big fan of Austin Aries, then you're going to be disappointed at the upcoming rounds of Impact Wrestling, as the former TNA World Heavyweight Champion will not be utilized as frequently as he should. Rumors going around right now is that he had a big blowup backstage at a recent set of television tapings, and management is none too pleased with Aries at the moment.

Great Khali
While he worked the battle royal at Wrestlemania 30, the Great Khali is not actively back on the road with WWE after all. The former world heavyweight champion is being given another four weeks off. He is scheduled to return to television in the middle of May. No word yet on why he is being give time off, but there are some rumors that he is injured.
April 17, 2014
Fandango
One of the big reasons why WWE put Layla El with Fandango is because Summer Rae is taking a couple of weeks off of television to film a sequel to the Marine with the Miz. WWE wanted to keep Fandango on television, but they did not feel that his act would be nearly as popular without a female companion. Thus, Layla was chosen to take over the role.

Darren Young
Days after disputing internet reports about his injury, it has now been revealed that Darren Young has suffered a torn ACL, which will keep him on the sidelines for the remainder of the year. The injury took place at a WWE live event last Saturday night. Since Young wasn't being pushed on television, management does not have to change much.

Vickie Guerrero
After being heavily rumored to be leaving the company after Wrestlemania 30, Vickie Guerrero has continued to be on the road for WWE. This week, she worked the Smackdown taping.

Davey Richards
"I never really wanted to go to WWE. The tryout there was awesome. It was really fun and I can't say enough good things and I learned a lot, but I told a few of the guys during the initial tryout with Eddie that this was not for me just because moving down to Orlando is not what I wanted to do and wrestling is not the only thing I want to do with my life. To give up everything and just live in that world is not my idea of a great life or a perfect life. TNA offered me to be able to wrestle with some of the best wrestlers in the world, I could be on television, I could go and entertain crowds but I could still come home and be Wes. I could be Davey, then I could be Wes. It was just better for me and I couldn't be happier in TNA it's been great." - Davey Richards on choosing TNA over WWE

April 10, 2014
Dixie Carter
The big draw on Impact Wrestling this week is the return of Dixie Carter to television.

April 10, 2014
David Otunga
In a rather interesting move, David Otunga left New Orleans on Monday and was not in attendance at Monday Night Raw this week. Many were under the impression that he would have worked the show since he was given a spot at Wrestlemania 30. It does not appear that WWE has Otunga involved in long term television plans.
April 8, 2014
Billy Gunn
The belief backstage in WWE is that Road Dogg is going to be winding down his days as an active in ring performer now that Wrestlemania 30 is over and done with. His tag team partner Billy Gunn suffered an injury during the big six man tag team match at the pay per view, so management is contemplating a scenario where they are written off of television.
April 8, 2014
Alexa Bliss
WWE generally likes to put everyone to good use at their television and pay per view events. Last night at Wrestlemania 30, during the big entrance for Triple H, WWE NXT divas Alexa Bliss, Sasha Banks, and Ashley Flair were used as background performers. The trio have been working in developmental for a bit of time now and are waiting for their chance to be called up to the main roster.
April 8, 2014
Yoshi Tatsu
Even though he is no longer touring with the company or being utilized on television, Yoshi Tatsu continues to work really hard, perfecting his craft at the WWE Performance Center every week.

April 7, 2014
Rob Van Dam
Since rumors leaked that he was going to be returning during the Wrestlemania 30 battle royal, WWE opted to pull Rob Van Dam from the event. Instead, he is now being heavily rumored to be making his return on Monday Night Raw, as management wanted to provide fans with plenty of surprises to kick start the new television season.
April 7, 2014
Andre the Giant
Despite not being utilized all that frequently on television, Justin Gabriel was given a spot in the Andre the Giant match at Wrestlemania 30.

Brutus Magnus
"I'm as grateful to Sting as anybody in the wrestling business for the benefit he has had in my career. Steve is a great guy and very very smart and just a model citizen as far as the way he conducts himself and how much respect he commands. There are some people who seem to be obsessed with respect and seem to be obsessed with guys not showing them enough respect but Sting is a guy who has never had to pull any stunts, never had to bully anyone, never had to throw his weight around or pull rank; he commands respect. The same could be said about Kurt Angle." - Brutus Magnus discusses how Sting is backstage
April 15, 2014
Bobby Roode
If TNA decides to keep the belt on Eric Young for the long term, an idea which is being tossed around backstage because of his marketing value at the moment, then management is going to push Bobby Roode up as a challenger for the world heavyweight championship. There are still talks of Brutus Magnus recapturing the belt at TNA Sacrifice 2014.

A piledriver sealed the pin fall victory for Young.

Internally, TNA is hoping that they can build up Gunner over the next several months, so that he can become a title challenger for Brutus Magnus and the world heavyweight championship.

March 8, 2014
Samoa Joe
Through his latest blog post, Jim Ross was critical of TNA because the company has Kurt Angle working a mid card match at TNA Lockdown 2014.

Brutus Magnus
While there are those backstage that believe that he is deserving of another title reign, the belief right now is that Samoa Joe will not be taking the belt from Brutus Magnus.

February 15, 2014
Brutus Magnus
Since TNA really wants Brutus Magnus to be viewed as a main event performer, one of the ideas being tossed around backstage is to have Kurt Angle put him over in an upcoming feud. Many feel that a win over the former world champion would help add credibility to both his character and his reign. TNA could do a huge match on a special edition of Impact Wrestling.
February 14, 2014
