Chris Masters
In a move that many were expecting, Melina Perez has been released by WWE during a company purge. Chris Masters, Vladimir Kolzov and Gail Kim were also released as well. The belief is that Melina had major backstage heat on her because of the way she treated Trish Stratus, whom she felt took a Wrestlemania 2011 spot from an active diva.

Bully Ray
Now that their contracts with TNA have officially expired, there has been some contact between Team 3D and WWE. The two sides are discussing a potential return to the company. The move may come as a shock to certain fans because there was a widespread belief that Bully Ray and Devon were never going to be able to work in WWE ever again due to backstage heat. That apparently is not the case.
October 17, 2014
Rey Mysterio
While the backstage heat between the two sides remains at a pretty high level, it does not appear that WWE will be giving a release to Rey Mysterio any time soon. Management has started to accept that the former world heavyweight champion will not be returning to work anytime soon, but they will not let him out of his contract to help another promotion out. WWE would rather just keep him on the sidelines for the time being, especially since Mysterio has reportedly stopped cashing in their checks.
October 15, 2014
AJ Lee
Anyone that has watched WWE routinely over the last year has heard the audience chanting for CM Punk, who walked away from the company due to backstage heat with management. Those chants are especially loud whenever AJ Lee, his real life wife, is in the ring. During recently live events, Paige has decided to turn the tables around on the fans by actually responding to the chants. She reminds the audience that it is actually AJ in the ring and not Punk.

Justin Roberts
When Justin Roberts was given his release from WWE after Monday Night Raw ended, there were a good amount of people who were upset with the company for dropping him unceremoniously. Overwhelmed by the support, the announcer went online and asked fans not to be angry. He stated that he was able to live out his dream for several years. Roberts was one of the more well liked guys backstage because of his passion and enthusiasm for the business.
October 15, 2014
Justin Roberts
Shortly after he worked Monday Night Raw this week, WWE announced that they have decided to release Justin Roberts after a dozen years o service because they did not want to sign him to another contract. No word yet on why management is letting him go, but the news is probably not well received backstage since Roberts was viewed as one of the biggest wrestling fans in the company.
October 14, 2014
Kaz Hayashi
There were some backstage jokes at Bound For Glory 2014 that Mike Tenay was the agent for Kaz Hayashi. The two of them formed a bit of a bond when they were working in WCW together. When Wrestle-1 officials were trying to decide who to throw into the triple threat match with Low Ki and Samoa Joe, it was Tenay that convinced them to go with Hayashi. Japanese officials were said to be quite impressed that Tenay even knew who Hayashi was.
October 13, 2014
Nick Dinsmore
When reports surfaced that Nick Dinsmore was being released by WWE as a trainer, the belief was that it was for budgetary reasons. However, there are now rumors floating around that Dinsmore might have been the victim of backstage politics. No confirmation on the two different factions at odds, but word is that Dinsmore was on the wrong side of that battle.
October 10, 2014
CM Punk
While Stephanie McMahon recently took a jab at CM Punk on Monday Night Raw, WWE is doing their best to show restraint. There is a fear backstage that if they are overly criticial of the former world heavyweight champion, then it might motivate him to gain revenge by working for a competing company. With word that TNA is interested in Punk, it would not be a surprise if WWE kept quiet about him for the foreseeable future.
October 9, 2014
Randy Orton
Management dedicates a lot of their creativity to events such as Royal Rumble 2015. With Randy Orton being penciled in for a baby face turn and a push, there are discussions going on backstage about having him do that at during the big battle royal. A potential story would have the former world heavyweight champion rebelling against the Authority and their wish to have Seth Rollins winning the match.
October 9, 2014
Rey Mysterio
The backstage heat between Rey Mysterio and WWE continues to grow. The latest incident to add fuel to the fire took place recently when the popular masked performer showed up backstage at a Lucha Underground event, which is being funded by AAA. Photos of the visit surfaced on social media, but they were quickly taken down, in order to avoid legal ramifications for Mysterio.
October 9, 2014
Michael Hayes
Reports have surfaced about a rather interesting real life relationship backstage in WWE. Rosa Mendes was said to have been dating Michael Hayes for a period of time. Former wrestlers have alluded to the seemingly inappropriate relationship in the past, but the names were withheld. Word going around is that Hayes was quite the advocate in getting Rosa on Total Divas. The two are said to be broken up now.
October 9, 2014
Michael Elgin
Last month, rumors and speculations began spreading about the backstage relationship between Michael Elgin and Ring of Honor. Apparently, things have taken a turn for the worst. Elgin has publicly stated that he is no longer with ROH. Apparently, he is upset with management for spreading lies about his situation, even though he is grateful that they helped him return to the United States.
October 7, 2014
Cliff Compton
Since walking out on WWE earlier in the year, CM Punk has not really been involved with professional wrestling. However, he decided to end the sabbatical recently, in order to support a very close friend. Cliff Compton, who formerly worked as Domino in WWE, was scheduled to win the OVW heavyweight championship, so Punk decided to attend the show backstage and support his buddy.
October 7, 2014
Christian
The situation backstage with Christian is developing into an interesting one. While he has been medically cleared to return as an in ring performer, WWE feels that he is too fragile for that role, so management has not instructed the creative department to come up with a story for his comeback. The company wants to keep him around, but they have yet to figure out what capacity that is going to be in.
October 4, 2014
Jamie Noble
As many fans are already aware by now, Jamie Noble and Joey Mercury were recently given more of an on screen role as the stooges for Triple H and Stephanie McMahon. Since they're still in good shape, there are report floating around that WWE will have them working a match on Monday Night Raw soon. Noble and Mercury spend the majority of their time as backstage agents for the company.
October 2, 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
Chavo Guerrero
As some of you already know, Chavo Guerrero is key backstage figure in that new Lucha Underground promotion that was recently launched. He is already receiving criticism for his work, as many people feel that the company is making a mistake by having high flying and quick paced performers slowing down to a manner similar to what WWE uses.
September 27, 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
Alberto Del Rio
Trash to one man might be viewed as a treasure to another. When Alberto Del Rio was fired from WWE due to a backstage incident, AAA salivated at the thought of building their company around him. When the two sides were legally allowed to sign a contract, management quickly jumped on it and made Del Rio the face of their company. Thus far, they have been pleased with the results because Del Rio carries himself extremely well, especially during media interviews.
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.

Low Ki
MVP is taking the weekend off from TNA live events, so that he can travel to England to work a big show over there for PCW. Promoters there have also booked Al Snow, Shane Helms, Low Ki and Chris Masters as well. One of the things that MVP asked for in contract negotiations with TNA is to have some freedom and flexibility to work overseas still.

Chris Masters
"I am pretty sure Big Show jumped for him. Not to take away anything from Antonio Cesaro he looks like a talented worker who can probably bring his work down a little bit and his body up, but that's just my opinion. If he slammed the Big Show than I can probably press the Big Show." - Former WWE star Chris Masters doubts that Antonio Cesaro was able to slam Big Show on his own strength

Jesse Sorensen
While a lot of people were under the assumption that his career as a professional wrestler was over after he suffered a serious neck injury, Jesse Sorensen has shown that there is life after TNA. He has been wrestling on a pretty frequent basis on the independent wrestling circuit. Sorensen is even booked for a big show next month that also features Matt Hardy, Chris Masters, Carlito and John Morrison.
April 21, 2014
Al Snow
TMZ has a video of Lilian Garcia doing karaoke at a bar in New Orleans during Wrestlemania 30 weekend. It was the same venue where Pat Patterson was singing earlier in the week. Spotted in the crowd were Al Snow and Chris Masters, two former WWE stars. For those that are not aware, Lilian actually is a singer in a band.

Chris Masters
During a recent interview, Chris Masters revealed that he was not going to be returning to WWE again. He stated that he was upset with the company because he felt that the creative department was not utilizing him properly. On the flip side, though, there does not appear to be a lot of interest from WWE in bringing him back, either.
February 11, 2014
Rob Van Dam
Several wrestlers, including Rob Van Dam and Val Venis, have spoken about the benefits of legalizing marijuana over the years, and it looks like Chris Masters is now being more vocal about that topic. The former WWE star wants to see it happen.
