Vickie Guerrero
Since she is now focusing on her education, new career and business, there is backstage heat towards Vickie Guerrero from a couple of people backstage in WWE.

Eddie Guerrero
The belief is that Vickie Guerrero will leave WWE in the near future, quite possibly around the time that she graduates from college and receives her medical administration degree.

Edge

"Then finally when I signed my deal deal, my very first deal, they also paid all of my college fees as a bonus. I think I owed like 40 grand, which they didn't have to do, I always felt was very, very cool of JR to do. He was like we're going to take care of your college, by the way. I was like oh, because that had been hanging over my head while I had been trying to just get somewhere and make it. I was like oh, man. I got this 40 grand that's over my head and I'm making 50 bucks on this show. Cool, now I'm making 210, but that's not going to chip away at 40 grand. So they took care of that when I signed my deal."

Chris Jericho
One of the things that makes Chris Jericho a beloved wrestler is the fact that he grew up a fan like most of us did.

Chris Jericho
"As a heel Chris Jericho, I'd love to work with Daniel Bryan. We could tear the damn house. That could still happen. A lot of times I'll hear I could never be a heel again because people like me too much, but put me in the ring with a babyface that is as over as Daniel Bryan and I'll show you some heel stuff that nobody there is doing right now because no one knows to do it. I requested to work with Antonio Cesaro, and we had a 30-minute match in Tokyo last year and killed it. And last year I did one show with NXT and requested to work with Bray Wyatt, and we had a great match. So those are the three guys that I'd like to work with." - Chris Jericho listing guys in WWE that he wants to work with

Triple H
When Triple H goes up against Daniel Bryan at Wrestlemania 30, Stephanie McMahon is expected to be at ringside. It will mark the first time in a dozen years that she has done that.

Chris Jericho
In the eyes of the fans, WWE is definitely a step up from TNA. However, that is not the case when it comes to the performers themselves. During a podcast interview with Chris Jericho, Rob Van Dam revealed that several of the guys backstage in TNA did not view WWE as a wise career move for themselves, as a lot of performers have failed to make progress after signing with Vince McMahon.
March 18, 2014
Rob Van Dam
At one point in time, Vince McMahon considered Antonio Cesaro to be a boring performer and character. Chris Jericho confirmed that during his podcast interview with Rob Van Dam. There are some merits to the rumors, as people backstage have been heavily praising Cesaro for quite some time now, but his big push in WWE has yet to really take place.
March 18, 2014
Chris Jericho
Last year, Fandango was given a victory over Chris Jericho at the event. His stock in WWE has dropped tremendously since then. Since he is still attached to Summer Rae, management wanted to try to get Fandango involved at Wrestlemania 30. They now have, as the dancing superstar has been officially added to the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal.
March 15, 2014
Shawn Michaels
Since the duo has been so effective for the promoters, Shawn Michaels and Chris Jericho have both been booked for a World of Wheels event this weekend in Winnepeg.

"It really took me a month or two after for it to set in that I debuted at Wrestlemania and beat Lionheart Chris Jericho, a guy I grew up watching, and who was one of the reasons I got into the wrestling business - a huge influence for me - and he helped me a lot. He helped me build the Fandango character by working with me leading up to Wrestlemania. It was overwhelming and unbelievable and it happened in the blink of an eye." - Fandango talks about working with Chris Jericho
