Chris Jericho
It has almost been a year now since he was given a big Wrestlemania win over Chris Jericho, and it seems that WWE has given up on Fandango becoming a big star. As of now, he is viewed as a mid card filler, who is receiving consistent television time because management wants to feature Summer Rae before her Total Divas debut.

Elijah Burke
Earlier this month, rumors spread that Elijah Burke was going to be joining Jeff Jarrett in Global Force Wrestling because he was hanging out in New Orleans with the TNA founder and his wife, Karen Jarrett.

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

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.
April 17, 2014
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.
April 16, 2014
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. Afterwards, the wrestlers got together and threw her a little birthday party once the television taping was done. She turned 46 today.
April 16, 2014
Jeff Jarrett
In a rather nice win for his new Global Force Wrestling, Jeff Jarrett has revealed that he has signed a production deal with 25/7 Productions and Dave Broome, the man that created the popular Biggest Loser reality television show on NBC. Together, they are currently shopping a wrestling show around to the networks and hope to land a television spot soon.

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

Nikita Koloff
A lot of wrestling fans have been wondering about the net worth of Nikita Koloff, as the legendary NWA star has yet to even make an appearance in WWE. The former United States Heavyweight Champion is done with professional wrestler. He has been a preacher for quite some time now, and his family was also featured on a reality television for the Lifetime Network.
April 14, 2014
Brie Bella
The big story line coming out of Total Divas this week is John Cena purchasing a house for Nikki Bella.

Since Brie Bella got married to Daniel Bryan, Cena has to figure out ways to keep Nikki happy.

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

No official word has been given on what her character will do on Impact Wrestling, but the belief is that Carter will be going after MVP again.
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.

Ultimate Warrior
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.

Bray Wyatt
"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

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.

April 1, 2014
Rob Van Dam
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
Fandango
Last year, Fandango was given a victory over Chris Jericho at the event. His stock in WWE has dropped tremendously since then.

They now have, as the dancing superstar has been officially added to the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal.
March 15, 2014

"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
