Dixie Carter
Rumors surfaced this week that Dixie Carter was going to make an announcement about the new network that Impact Wrestling would be moving to. However, at the last minute, Country Music Television has emerged as a strong candidate to land the weekly TNA show. The network is under the same corporate umbrella as their current home, Spike. CMT is available in close to 100 million homes.
September 24, 2014
Dixie Carter
Rumors are heating up that TNA will be making their long awaited announcement on a new television contract. Dixie Carter has been adamant all along about Impact Wrestling being able to remain on the air, and it looks like her team is about to finalize things. No word yet on which network the deal will be with, but it appears that Spike is not in the picture. WGN and Velocity are two of the rumored networks interested in bringing wrestling on board.
September 23, 2014
Austin Aries
Add Austin Aries to the long list of performers who may be leaving TNA once their contract expires. Reports surfaced recently that he was not one of the names advertised for an upcoming tour of England, and that led to the speculation that the former world heavyweight champion was not going to have his contract renewed by the company because they are still in limbo over a television contract.
September 22, 2014
Gail Kim
With the company still in limbo on a new television contract, whenever a veteran performer has a contract that is expiring, rumors float around that the person will be leaving TNA. Another name to add to the list is Gail Kim. Long viewed as one of the best female performers in the industry, her future is unclear, as her contract expires before the end of the year.
September 21, 2014
Bray Wyatt
As many fans already know, WWE has run out of opponents for Bray Wyatt, so he has slipped down the ladder tremendously over the last couple of weeks. Sheamus has long been a rumored opponent for Wyatt, and it looks like that feud may be happening soon. Management has had the two of them working together at live events, and the belief is that it will be brought to television soon.
September 20, 2014
Darren Young
While the hot rumors are pointing to Darren Young being eventually revealed by WWE as the man underneath the bunny suit, a lot of fans have been wondering who has been portraying the character on television as of late. Reports have surfaced that developmental wrestler Sami Zayn has been the one in the suit. He apparently portrayed the character on Monday Night Raw and at live events.
September 17, 2014
AJ Lee
One of the more interesting things in WWE nowadays is the feud between AJ Lee and Paige. It's not so much about what has happened on television, as much as it is about what can possibly happen next. The creative department has teased sexual tension between the two performers, but management knows that it cannot go too far because of potential backlash from advertisers. With WWE needing to create a buzz for the product, it will be interesting to see how close to the line that they're willing to step.
September 17, 2014
Bully Ray
Rumors are spreading rapidly right now that Bully Ray has signed a new contract with TNA. The speculation stems from the fact that the company is now openly advertising him for Bound For Glory 2014. His contract expired not too long ago, and at the time, the belief was that the two sides were not able to come to an agreement on a new deal because TNA was still waiting for a television contract. There is also a chance that Bully Ray could just be doing a one time thing for the company.
September 13, 2014
Dixie Carter
Dixie Carter has remained steadfast in TNA being able to keep Impact Wrestling on television. While a deal with Spike is now unlikely, the company has received interest from Velocity and WGN. The latest reports are saying that there are two other networks, which are currently unnamed at this time, interested. One of the networks is said to even be stronger than Spike.
September 11, 2014
Adam Rose
Since the bunny that accompanies Adam Rose has been featured more frequently on television as of late, fans have been speculating that WWE will eventually have him work a match. It looks like that might happen sooner than later. There are talks that Rose and the bunny could be teaming up to battle Heath Slater and Titus ONeil during the kickoff match at Night of Champions 2014.
September 11, 2014
Dixie Carter
While there has not been a lot of news recently about the television contract situation in TNA, there is still a ton of things going on backstage. Reports have surfaced that Dixie Carter has been meeting with potential silent investors. For those that are not aware, silent investors are those that do not have much of a say in how the company operates. There are talks that the investment amount starts at $10 million.
September 9, 2014
Dixie Carter
One of the more discussed topics online among wrestling fans is the future of Impact Wrestling, whose television contract with Spike is expiring at the end of the year and is reportedly not being renewed. Dixie Carter has stated that the company is still in negotiations to remain on television. A new network has popped up as a potential landing spot, and that network is WGN, who used to broadcast WWE shows.
September 7, 2014
Brock Lesnar
A lot of fans are unhappy that Brock Lesnar does not show up more frequently on Monday Night Raw. Some of those negative feelings apparently are misguided, as it has now been revealed that the former UFC champion has already agreed to work more dates for WWE if needed. Management simply has opted against bringing him on television more often because they would need to pay him more.
September 3, 2014
ODB
In regards to the release of ODB from TNA, reports are surfacing that the two sides are leaving on good terms. She was not released because of backstage heat or anything. In fact, her contract had expired, and management opted not to renew her deal at this time. The belief is that the two sides could come to an agreement down the line, but nothing is expected to happen until TNA can secure a new television deal.
August 29, 2014
Big E Langston
A lot of fans are under the assumption that the stable consisting of Xavier Woods, Kofi Kingston and Big E Langston has been disbanded. It's hard to blame them for thinking that because WWE has removed them from television over the last couple of weeks. However, rumors are floating around that the trio has been informed by management that there are still plans in place for them to work as a group in the future. The creative department simply has not figured out a good way of using them.
August 27, 2014
Zack Ryder
There might be some backstage heat towards Zack Ryder. After working the live events this week for the company, he noted that he was flying back to New York. He also stated that he was not sick, which has led many fans to believe that this involves some sort of disciplinarian issues. WWE usually flies in performers for Monday Night Raw and Smackdown, even if they're not being utilized on television.
August 25, 2014
Bully Ray
Reports have surfaced that the contract between Bully Ray and TNA has now officially expired. The two sides had been trying to negotiate a new deal, but financial terms could not be met. The former world heavyweight champion is still listed on the official roster page on the TNA website. The belief is that the company might wait until a new television deal has been signed before renegotiating with some of the bigger stars.
August 25, 2014
Rey Mysterio
While it appears that he is still under contract to WWE, it does not seem like the company is going to be bringing Rey Mysterio back to television, even after his hand injury heals. The two sides are greatly at odds right now, and it seems like management is more concerned about preventing him from going to another company at this point. A reconciliation seems unlikely right now.
August 24, 2014
Dixie Carter
Some interesting rumors have popped up about TNA and their attempt to get a new television contract for Impact Wrestling. It appears that Dixie Carter is not panicking because the company has another network lined up. It is being said that it is not a major one, but it should enable TNA to remain available nationally, which is something that the company desperately needs.
August 24, 2014
Big E Langston
There might be some good news for those of you that were excited about the new stable of Xavier Woods, Kofi Kingston and Big E Langston. Management had apparently decided to split up the group because they were taken off of television, but at a recent live event, the stable was utilized once again. WWE could be testing out the audience to see if the trio can be worth saving.
August 23, 2014
Carlos Colon
Older wrestling fans took quite an interest in WWE inducting Carlos Colon into the hall of fame this year. Many were expecting to see some backstage heat incident taking place because there are still many people in the industry who blame Colon for his involvement in the murder of Bruiser Brody. Cooler heads prevailed, and the situation went pretty smoothly for WWE.
April 15, 2014
Carlos Colon
While a lot of people have ruled out the possibility because of verbal jabs that he took at the company while inducting Carlos Colon into the hall of fame during Wrestlemania 30 weekend, there is still a chance that Carlito could be making a comeback with WWE. A lot of people in management knew that he was going to be joking around when they initially invited him.
April 8, 2014
Carlos Colon
One of the biggest backstage reasons why Carlos Colon is being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame at Wrestlemania 30 is because the company the trying to entice the Puerto Rico legend to sell them the WWC, also known as World Wrestling Council, library footage. Vince McMahon wants it for when he launches the WWE Network internationally.
March 20, 2014
Carlos Colon
When Carlos Colon was announced as an inductee into the WWE hall of fame at Wrestlemania 30, some were under the belief that Diego and Fernando would be receiving a little push in order to promote the induction. However, it is much too late to do that, so management might simply put the two of them into the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal match instead.
March 19, 2014
Carlos Colon
Since the company is expected to have Carlito, Diego and Fernando all inducting Carlos Colon into the hall of fame at Wrestlemania 30, there are talks that WWE could try to convince the former United States Heavyweight Champion to make his return as an in ring performer. The Los Matadores gimmick has not exactly drawn in the fans, so the trio could be paired together.
March 17, 2014
Carlos Colon
Even though he did not leave the company on the best of terms, Carlito is said to be returning to WWE at Wrestlemania 30 to induct his father Carlos Colon into the hall of fame. The belief is that his brother Diego and his cousin Fernando will also be a part of the induction ceremony as well. The induction announcement for Colon will be made during Smackdown this Friday.
March 13, 2014
Jim Duggan
Some very interesting news coming out of a wrestling convention in Charlotte last month. Jim Duggan revealed to fans in attendance that he and Roddy Piper were working on getting a reality television show for themselves. Quite a lofty goal for the WWE legends, as there probably is not a whole lot of network executives who are interested in such a show.
September 29, 2014
Jack Swagger
Wade Barrett hasn't been on television in quite some time now because he suffered a shoulder injury during a match with Jack Swagger. He was recently up in Toronto, so he sought the help of Trish Stratus, a former WWE diva who now runs a successful yoga business. Barrett stated that the workout session with Trish helped his shoulder feel a bit better.
September 27, 2014
Great Khali
Even though the company has been slowly downplaying the importance of the Great Khali, WWE has plans in the works to expand even further into India. Management recognizes the country as a very profitable one for their brand. More shows are being planned, and television deals are being cemented. While the company no longer wishes to pay him as much money as before, this move into India might help Khali secure another contract soon.
September 25, 2014
Ric Flair
Some good news if you're a fan of Ric Flair. He has now been released from a hospital in Georgia after spending ten days there for emergency surgeries. The former world heavyweight champion had an appendicitis attack and a hernia. He is expected to take some time off the road to recover from his wounds, but he should be back on WWE television before the end of the year.
September 20, 2014
Jim Ross
Not a lot of details were provided when Ric Flair was forced to miss a WWE NXT show to have surgery. Jim Ross has revealed some details on that procedure. The longtime commentator stated that Flair had an appendicitis attack, and when doctors went in there to repair the damage, they discovered a hernia, so they repaired that as well. No word yet on when Flair will be returning to WWE television.
September 18, 2014
Dixie Carter
While reports are saying that their contract with Spike TV is expiring at the end of the year, executives in TNA are still making moves as if they are definitely going to remain on television. The company has now booked the Manhattan Center in New York City for three more episodes of Impact Wrestling. It appears that Dixie Carter is extremely confident that they will be signing a deal somewhere.
September 15, 2014
Jeremy Borash
While the future of Impact Wrestling is in question because a deal with Spike TV cannot be reached, TNA is still continuing to churn forward. The company is filming a new television show called TNA Legends, and it is being hosted by Jeremy Borash, who is seemingly the most versatile person backstage. No word yet on where this show will be airing, but it will be on television somewhere.
September 14, 2014
Adrian Neville
Last week, wrestling fans were dazzled by Adrian Neville, Sami Zayn, Tyler Breeze and Tyson Kidd during a tag team match on Monday Night Raw. You can expect more of that in the near future, as the WWE NXT stars are being booked for more television appearances. Reports have surfaced that Triple H is the one pushing management to feature the developmental wrestlers more frequently.
September 13, 2014
Evan Bourne
Since he actually tried to trick ROH into hiring him immediately after his WWE release, it should come as a surprise to no one that Evan Bourne is now officially returning to the company later on this month when his 90 day non compete clause expires. ROH has officially announced his comeback at the September 27 television taping in West Virginia. No word yet on who his opponent will be.
September 8, 2014
Stephanie McMahon
On Monday Night Raw, many witnessed a brilliant publicity stunt that WWE launched when they invited Michael Sam, an openly gay football player who is trying to find an NFL team this season, to make an appearance on their television show next week. Stephanie McMahon has made another move to secure that deal by writing an open letter to the defensive end, calling him a hero.
September 2, 2014
Bobby Lashley
TNA has a couple of live events coming up in a few days, and their world heavyweight champion will not be around. Bobby Lashley is going to be missing the one night only pay per view taping and an international television taping because he has to do a fight for Bellator MMA on September 5. His opponent is Josh Burns, who currently has an 8-7 record.
August 28, 2014
Bray Wyatt
WWE has announced a big rematch between John Cena and Bray Wyatt for Monday Night Raw tonight. No word yet on why the match is taking place, as the two of them are not currently feuding with one another. Wyatt is still feuding with Chris Jericho, while Cena is in a program with Brock Lesnar, who once again will not be making a television appearance this week despite being the WWE champion.
August 25, 2014
Alicia Fox
Those that watched Summerslam 2014 saw Nikki Bella doing her much rumored heel turn. She is expected to work in that role on television going forward. However, WWE did something peculiar at a live event in Sacramento over the weekend. Nikki worked as a baby face. She teamed up with Emma to defeat Alicia Fox and Layla El. The face team even attacked Rosa Mendes, who was portraying a heel character. No word yet on why WWE opted to do this.
August 24, 2014
Rosa Mendes
There are speculations right now that Rosa Mendes could be on the receiving end of a push from WWE. She recently stated in an interview that she has never won a singles match via pin fall on television before. The belief is that she is planting the seeds for an underdog story line. Rosa chasing the championship could be a focal point on Total Divas.
August 23, 2014
Bully Ray
A lot of eyes are on the contract negotiations between Bully Ray and TNA at the moment. Many are curious to see if the company will actually let another top level performer walk away. Reports have surfaced that one of the things holding up the deal is the fact that management wants to wait until a new television deal can be reached. TNA is willing to sign the lower level performers right now since the deals are not as expensive.
August 22, 2014
Alexander Rusev
There are rumors floating around right now that Zeb Colter is going to be dropped from television and removed as the manager of Jack Swagger. Many are assuming that since WWE kept him off of Monday Night Raw and Smackdown. Colter is said to be making a return soon and is only selling the kick from Alexander Rusev. Management still views him as an asset.
August 22, 2014
Dixie Carter
As the company continues their negotiations with Spike TV, TNA has signed a new television contract with SuperSport in Africa. The deal is for five years, which means that Dixie Carter and company will maintain a strong presence overseas, even if they are unable to secure another deal with Spike. Many in the industry are under the impression that Impact Wrestling will remain on television in the United States somehow.
August 21, 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
Dean Ambrose
For those wondering about the final segment of Monday Night Raw this week, it was designed to write Dean Ambrose off of television. There were speculations that he was going to need time off to film a movie for WWE Studios, but the initial belief was that he would not need to miss television time. It now appears that the company is just going to take him off the road, so he can focus on filming.
August 19, 2014
Bully Ray
In a sign of how much power he has gained backstage, Bully Ray was recently put in charge of a talent meeting to explain to the performers that TNA was still going to remain in business. The former world heavyweight champion has been given access to details of the negotiations that the company has undertaken with the various television networks.
August 17, 2014
Carlos Colon
Since he is not as big of a star in the United States as he was in Puerto Rico, WWE did not expect a grand reaction from the audience when Carlos Colon gave his hall of fame induction speech. In fact, Carlito received a much bigger and more lively reaction from the fans. Colon gave a solid speech that did not go on too long, but it was not something that blew everyone away.
April 6, 2014
Hornswoggle
Every year, a couple of people within WWE are forced to miss the hall of fame induction ceremony because the company needs to keep the Axxess shows going. This year, Hornswoggle is going to be one of those people. He will be manning a booth while Jake Roberts, Ultimate Warrior, Scott Hall, Lita, Carlos Colon, Paul Bearer and Mr T are inducted.
April 5, 2014
Carlos Colon
A video of a brutal match between Abdullah the Butcher and Carlos Colon, who is set to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame at Wrestlemania 30 this weekend.
April 4, 2014
Lita
A photo of the WWE Hall of Fame ring being given to Ultimate Warrior, Scott Hall, Jake Roberts, Carlos Colon, Lita, Mr T and to the family of Paul Bearer at Wrestlemania 30 weekend.
April 3, 2014
Diego
While nothing has been made official yet in regards to who will be inducting Carlos Colon, Carlito has revealed that he will be definitely be at Wrestlemania 30 to watch his father being inducted into the hall of fame that weekend. The belief is that WWE will have the former US champion, Diego and Fernando all inducting Colon in the segment.
March 18, 2014
Diego
In a rather surprising move, WWE will be inducting Carlos Colon into their hall of fame at Wrestlemania 30. He is a legend in Puerto Rico and the father of Carlito and Diego. Many felt that since he was included in the class last year in New York City that management had no interest in giving him the honor. Colon himself called it a surprise.
March 12, 2014
Randy Orton
In order to create new matches in the main event scene, WWE is contemplating a baby face turn for Randy Orton in the near future. Seeds have been planted on Monday Night Raw recently when his character is shown complaining frequently about being forced to put out fires created by Seth Rollins. The belief is that a feud between the two will be taking place very soon.
September 30, 2014
Bray Wyatt
On Monday Night Raw this week, WWE aired a video, featuring Luke Harper and Bray Wyatt. Reports have surfaced that the move was done because management wanted to give Harper a singles push. There are also talks that the company is considering a complete split for the Wyatt Family. No word yet on what they plan on doing with Wyatt and Erick Rowan.
September 30, 2014
Brock Lesnar
While WWE is still trying to finalize plans for Hell in a Cell 2014, one thing is certain. Seth Rollins is going to be working a match inside of the huge steel structure. His opponent will either be John Cena or Dean Ambrose. Management has not yet made a decision on that, but the belief is that Cena has the advantage because he has been more of a proven draw over the years, and the pay per view desperately needs that drawing power since Brock Lesnar and the WWE title are not going to be present.
September 30, 2014
Kenta Kobayashi
Reports have surfaced that Prince Devitt and Kenta Kobayashi are going to be promoted to the main roster very soon. The two of them are established international stars, and management is not going to have them languishing in the developmental program. WWE knows that the promotion might upset some of the guys that have been in WWE NXT for a while, but it is a move that they want to do.
September 30, 2014
Brie Bella
Some crazy rumors are floating around right now about Nikki Bella and Brie Bella competing in a Hell in a Cell match at Hell in a Cell 2014. WWE is extremely unlikely to do this because they do want their female performers in gimmick matches that might cause severe injury, but the rumors have some merit because it was revealed by an insider who has accurately broken the news on a couple of things in the past.
September 29, 2014
Big Show
Considering how far down the ladder he has been dropped, it's easy to understand why there are a lot of rumors about possible backstage heat on Bray Wyatt. Speculations were high over the weekend because Wyatt lost cleanly in a match against Big Show, a performer that is not being pushed. A possible explanation for the loss is that WWE usually allows the baby faces to win at live events, in order to appease the audience.
September 28, 2014
Homicide
When TNA originally brought Homicide back into the mix, it was designed as something temporary. However, the veteran performer did such a good job at getting a reaction from the audience that management had no choice but to keep him around a bit longer. They changed up the stories a bit for him, and he ended up being given an X division title match against Samoa Joe.
September 26, 2014
Steve Austin
Some heavy speculations have arisen this week on the possible return of Steve Austin to WWE. Reports have surfaced that management has informed manufacturers to go heavy on products related to Stone Cold and informed distributors to prepare for a boost in merchandise coming through. No word yet on what Austin will be doing when he comes back, but there is a chance that it could just be a brief appearance.
September 26, 2014
Stephanie McMahon
Some major trouble is reportedly brewing behind the scenes in WWE, as a new power struggle has just been revealed. Triple H and Stephanie McMahon are trying to take some power away from George Barrios and Michelle Wilson, two high ranking executives within the corporation. HHH and Stephanie are using the early failures of the WWE Network against Barrios and Wilson.
September 25, 2014
Vince McMahon
Vince McMahon reportedly has a rule about the cast of Total Divas. None of them are allowed to hold the championship while they are a part of that reality show. No word yet on why McMahon has that rule in place right now, but it is quite peculiar since WWE basically scripts a lot of their segments based on what is happening on Total Divas.
September 25, 2014
AJ Styles
While he has some resentment towards the company for letting him away, the door has not yet been completely closed on AJ Styles making a return to TNA next year. He enjoys working in Japan but would much rather be closer to his family at all times. Once Impact Wrestling secures a new home and the company can afford to hand out big contracts again, Styles could be one of the names brought back.
September 25, 2014
Vince McMahon
The latest episode of Monday Night Raw was a prime example of just how hectic things are backstage in WWE. About an hour and a half before the show was to be aired live to a nationwide audience, Vince McMahon decided to scrap the entire show and write it all over again from scratch. That caused quite a frenzy because the writers were barely given enough time to finish the scripts for the wrestlers.
September 25, 2014
Brock Lesnar
Reports have surfaced that Brock Lesnar is not scheduled to work Hell in a Cell 2014. The WWE champion has caused quite a headache for the front office. Management has to be selective about when they use him because they have to pay him accordingly. The creative department has a dilemma because they know that they cannot keep having Lesnar wrestle John Cena, and there's not a lot of performers on the roster that has enough name value to work with Lesnar.
September 25, 2014
Josh Mathews
Rumors spread rather quickly this week about Josh Mathews joining TNA when pictures of the announcer leaving the company headquarters appeared online. While no official confirmation has been made on the signing, the belief is that a contract has already been reached. While there is still a slight chance that he might be wrestling for the company, the widespread belief is that he is coming in as an announcer.
September 25, 2014
Brock Lesnar
There is some disarray backstage in WWE right now as to what to do with the main event of Hell in a Cell 2014. Some think that John Cena and Brock Lesnar should have a title rematch in the gigantic steel structure. However, there are enough people who are opposed to the idea that management had to scrap all plans involving Lesnar and Paul Heyman on the latest episode of Monday Night Raw.
September 24, 2014
Antonio Cesaro
It appears that WWE might be done with the feud between Miz and Dolph Ziggler, two performers who were largely neglected by the creative department for a good period of time. Management wants to move Ziggler onto another challenge, and the name being tossed around the most is Antonio Cesaro. WWE is still high on Cesaro, even though he has not received a consistent push as of late.
September 23, 2014
Brock Lesnar
Since Night of Champions 2014 took place over the weekend, a lot of fans were expecting Paul Heyman to make an appearance and gloat about how Brock Lesnar is still the WWE champion. However, Heyman was nowhere to be seen on Monday Night Raw. He was backstage at the event last night, but management opted against using him because they could not come up with something for Heyman and Lesnar.
September 23, 2014
Brock Lesnar
While there is a possibility that WWE does a third straight match between John Cena and Brock Lesnar, there are those backstage that are pushing for Cena to be transitioned into a feud with Seth Rollins instead. That's why the story line of Rollins attempting to cash in at Night of Champions 2014 took place. The belief is that this program will help elevate Rollins into the main event scene.
September 22, 2014
Cody Rhodes
On Night of Champions 2014, Cody Rhodes and Goldust defeated Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso for the WWE tag team championship. Rumors are floating around that management felt that the twins had grown stale because they ran out of teams to defend the titles again. Plus, Rhodes has really been getting into his Stardust character, so the front office wants to see if the gimmick can pick up further steam with a championship push.
September 22, 2014
Dean Ambrose
By now, everyone knows that Roman Reigns has been hospitalized and is forced to miss Night of Champions 2014. Seth Rollins needs a new opponent. One of the ideas being tossed around is to have Dean Ambrose making a surprise return at the pay per view and continue his feud with Rollins. Ambrose had taken a couple of weeks away from WWE to film a movie, but he finished up this weekend.
September 21, 2014
