Randy Orton
There was a bit of concern backstage for Randy Orton during the main event of Money in the Bank 2014. Early on in the match, he was struck by a ladder, which caused him to bleed pretty badly. Medical personnel and Triple H immediately tended to him to stop the wound. While there were some fears of a concussion, Orton opted to finish the match. Afterwards, he was given nearly a dozen staples to close the wound. Orton reportedly is undergoing some tests today to check for concussions.

Alicia Fox
For story line purposes, WWE is reporting that Tony Chimel has suffered a concussion after being slapped by Alicia Fox, the diva who is currently working a story where her character is frustrated with all of the losing that she has endured over the last year. Alicia even mentioned on Twitter that she has sent him flowers. Chimel is actually fine.

Christian
Even though he has been kept off of television recently because of complications from a concussion, Christian is being advertised for the upcoming tour of Europe.

Samoa Joe
After being given some time off, Samoa Joe is back on the road for TNA. The former world heavyweight champion worked live events for the company this weekend. There have been conflicting reports as to why Joe was off the road. He denied rumors about a concussion, but he has not done the same for the reports of him taking time off for family reasons.
April 19, 2014
Christian
Initial plans for this past Monday Night Raw did not include a tournament to crown a new contender for the WWE Intercontinental Championship. Management was originally expecting Christian to be able to come back and cash in his title shot. However, there were some bad news on the veteran performer, who has been recovering from yet another concussion, so WWE changed the plans.

Samoa Joe
Rumors surfaced over the weekend that Samoa Joe had been pulled from TNA events because he suffered a concussion.

Samoa Joe
One of the more notable absence on Impact Wrestling this week was Samoa Joe. Many believed that he would have been a part of that gauntlet match to determine a new contender for the TNA title. However, it has now been revealed that Joe was unable to work the show because he suffered a concussion at a live event in Nebraska a couple of weeks ago.
April 12, 2014
Brock Lesnar
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
Billy Gunn
Since the performers have a tendency to go all out during the biggest wrestling pay per view of the year, it should come as no surprise that there were several Wrestlemania 30 injuries. Undertaker was sent to the hospital for a potential concussion and injured neck. Billy Gunn was said to be bleeding internally. A lot of other performers suffered the usual cuts and bruises. Rough night for WWE stars.
April 8, 2014
Andre the Giant
Amid conflicting rumors about his availability and health, Christian actually ended up missing Wrestlemania 30 last night. The former world heavyweight champion was supposed to work the Andre the Giant battle royal, but was removed at the last minute because doctors could not clear him from the concussion that he sustained last month.
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
Christian
There are rumors that Wrestlemania 30 is being viewed as the last one for Christian. Aside from being on the other side of 40, there are still lingering concerns about his concussion history within WWE. The belief over the last couple of months is that management really tried hard to make sure that there was a spot for the veteran on the pay per view.
April 5, 2014
Big E Langston
In a peculiar move, Christian was removed from a scheduled match on the Main Event by WWE officials this week. He was scheduled to work an Intercontinental Championship match against Big E Langston, but management decided to make the change. The official reason given by the company is that the former world champion has suffered another concussion.
March 27, 2014
Roman Reigns

There were some concerns over Roman Reigns after Monday Night Raw. Aside from requiring a couple of stitches to close a cut above his eye, the WWE medical staff is afraid that he might have suffered a concussion. Management needs him healthy for a big push at Wrestlemania 30.

February 4, 2014
CM Punk

"My info on CM Punk: I do know from sources that at Monday Night Raw in CLE there was heated exchange backstage between Punk & staff. Topic - concussion. Punk was heard arguing with staff saying 'I passed all your damn concussion test' and 'I'm not going out and telling fans that BS'"

- Casey Kulas, an ESPN employee in Cleveland

January 20, 2014
Daniel Bryan

Since Daniel Bryan is out with a concussion, WWE needed someone to work with Bray Wyatt at the live event, as the two of them have been paired up for the last couple of weeks in preparations for their match at the Royal Rumble, so officials opted to go with the Big Show as a replacement.

January 19, 2014
Rhyno
Since his company is folding and he is joining the Great Muta in Wrestle-1, there are talks that Tajiri could be making an appearance in TNA very soon, as the two companies have been working closely together nowadays.

July 6, 2014

A rather interesting conversation took place between Bully Ray and Chris Jericho on the latter's podcast show this week. The ECW legend revealed that he used to work in the porn industry. Bully said that he directed a couple of films, thanks in part to his friendship with Rob Black, the porn producer who eventually got involved in professional wrestling.

Bully Ray
When TNA announced at Slammiversary 2014 that Devon and Bully Ray were going to be inducted into the hall of fame, it led to a lot of speculation about the status of Devon with the company.

June 17, 2014

His departure has not been confirmed yet, and many are still under the belief that this is an elaborate work.
June 11, 2014
Tommy Dreamer
As many of you already know by now, TNA pulled Bully Ray at the last minute from a House of Hardcore show, which led to Tommy Dreamer cutting a scathing promo on Dixie Carter. The supposed backstage heat has now spilled over to social media, as Carter has responded to Dreamer on Twitter. The two have gone back and forth.
June 10, 2014
Chris Jericho
"No, I don't think it's caused a big hole at all. He split, that's it, he's gone. He was on TV with TNA probably more than he should have been, and he was talking up a lot of prime real estate where younger guys could have been. If I was writing a show, Hulk would have been in one story and he would be on the show one time, so we can feature him, give the people their Babe Ruth and that's it." - Bully Ray discusses Hulk Hogan during his interview with Chris Jericho
June 9, 2014
Dixie Carter
Rumors are heavily floating around right now that TNA and House of Hardcore are working together. When Tommy Dreamer cut what seemed to be a shoot interview about Dixie Carter pulling Bully Ray from his show, some felt that it was out of character for Dreamer to do that, as he is viewed as one of the more respectful guys in the industry. Plus, Dreamer himself has a working relationship with TNA already, so it would not be hard to fathom that he would align his company with Carter.
June 8, 2014
Bully Ray
Earlier this week, it was discovered that Bully Ray had been pulled from the House of Hardcore event that Tommy Dreamer was promoting. It has now been revealed that TNA pulled Bully Ray, so that he can go represent the company at a Spike TV television event. Since contract negotiations on a new television deal are ongoing, TNA wanted to maintain a good working relationship with Spike TV, and Bully Ray is one of their best representatives.

An interesting situation took place at the House of Hardcore show in New York tonight. Tommy Dreamer bashed Dixie Carter for pulling Bully Ray from his show at the last minute. He stated that the TNA president pulled Bully to appear on a promotional event for Impact Wrestling. Dreamer has a working relationship with Carter, so there are rumors that this was simply a story line to generate interest in both promotions.
June 6, 2014
Samoa Joe
In case you did not catch Impact Wrestling this week, Samoa Joe made his return to TNA. He received a bit of a pop as he came back to save Eric Young and Bully Ray from an attack by MVP, Kenny King and Bobby Lashley in the final segment of the show. Upon signing with TNA, MVP specifically mentioned Samoa Joe as a performer that he wanted to work against, so that feud could be happening soon.

Bobby Roode
In approximately two years, TNA has reduced the amount of contracted performers by nearly half, going from 60 to 33 during that stretch of time. Dixie Carter and company have been forced to allow performers to leave whenever their contracts expire because they need to become fiscally responsible if they wish to remain in business. Rumor has it that only Kurt Angle, Jeff Hardy, Bully Ray, Samoa Joe, Abyss, James Storm, Bobby Roode and Mr Anderson have big salaries.
