Big Show
"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

January 31, 2010
Randy Orton
Since it has been heavily rumored for months now and the seeds are clearly visible on Monday Night Raw, the Randy Orton baby face turn is taking place very soon. The former world heavyweight champion, however, is said to not be extremely happy about the switch. Orton has long felt more comfortable portraying a heel. He is said to be willing to go through with the turn, if it increased his chances of moving up the ladder and moving more merchandise.
October 31, 2014
Kurt Angle
Reports are floating around that Kurt Angle has signed a new contract with TNA that will enable him to work part time and focus on building up his career in Hollywood. The former Olympic gold medalist attempted to get a part time deal with WWE, but the company insisted that he sign a full time deal, which Angle did not want because he was worried about the effects it would have on his body.
October 29, 2014
Alexa Bliss
A lot of eyes stay focused on the developmental program in WWE because that is usually where the next star will come from. The latest person to be viewed as the next one to be elevated to the main roster is Alexa Bliss. The diva has impressed management over the last couple of weeks, and some are even saying that she has moved past Ashley Flair in line. She is already ahead of Bayley and Sasha Banks at the moment.
October 29, 2014
Vince McMahon
Anyone that has followed WWE for a couple of years already knows that things are pretty hectic from January through April. It looks like management is looking to alleviate some of the clutter by removing the Elimination Chamber pay per view. Vince McMahon still loves the gimmick, however, so the cage match might be moved towards the summer or fall.
October 26, 2014
Jeff Jarrett
Some buzz was created earlier this week when it was discovered that Jeff Jarrett was meeting with ROH officials. Reports have now surfaced that the two sides discussed doing talent exchanges for various shows. Jarrett also wanted Ring of Honor to loosen up their contractual clause that prevents their performers from appearing on television and pay per view for other promotions, as he is interested in utilizing ROH performers on that big New Japan pay per view in January.
October 23, 2014
Rey Mysterio
As many fans already know, Rey Mysterio is still under contract to WWE, which means that he cannot work elsewhere during the duration of the deal. The masked superstar wants to return to Mexico and wrestle for AAA. Many were under the belief that he was going to wait for his current deal with WWE to expire, but there are now talks that the company could extend his deal again next year and force him to remain on the sidelines.
October 22, 2014
Adam Pearce
Rumors were floating around that Nick Dinsmore was given a release by WWE because of backstage politics as opposed to budget cost. Those rumors are gaining steam right now because the company is reportedly interested in hiring Adam Pearce as his replacement. The former NWA champion has been spotted at the performance center a couple of times already this month.
October 21, 2014
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
Brandi Rhodes
Now that Justin Roberts has been given a release by WWE, fans are speculating as to who will replace him as the announcer for Monday Night Raw. Lilian Garcia is said to be ruled out because the Smackdown schedule works much better for her pursuit of music. Byron Saxton is just the backup for now. Brandi Rhodes and JoJo Offerman are the two primary candidates for the role.
October 16, 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
Kurt Angle
Earlier in the week, it was reported that WWE had offered Kurt Angle a full time contract, which he turned down because he wanted a part time deal to preserve his body and health. There are speculations floating around that Triple H only made that offer because he knew that Angle would reject it. Some are still under the belief that HHH wants nothing to do with Angle and is attempting to block his return to the company.
October 15, 2014
Alexander Rusev
One of the ideas being floated around right now has Mark Henry doing his rumored heel turn at Hell in a Cell 2014. WWE has planted the seeds by having Henry helping Big Show out in his feud against Alexander Rusev and Lana. The belief is that management wants to use the feud to put Rusev closer to the main event scene, while protecting Big Show, which can be done if Henry turns and costs him the match at the pay per view.
October 15, 2014
Adrian Neville
WWE officials are a lot more observant than fans think that they are. The company routinely monitors the audience reaction to certain performers. As of late, management has noticed that the ovations that Adrian Neville has been receiving when working with the main roster has been superb. On some nights, he gets more of a reaction than the guys that have been on television regularly.
October 15, 2014
Dean Ambrose
WWE is promoting Hell in a Cell 2014 as having a double main event, and the reason behind that is simple. They do not believe that Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins are proven draws yet, even with the big steel structure and a highly entertaining feud behind them. Thus, the reliance on John Cena and Randy Orton, two guys that the company has relied on for years now, to help sell the pay per view.
October 14, 2014
Jeff Jarrett
While there has not been a ton of details revealed from the deal between New Japan Pro Wrestling and Global Force Wrestling, there are reports that have surfaced that Jeff Jarrett is looking to distribute content from the overseas promotion across the United States. His ability to do that would greatly increase if he were able to secure a national television deal, which he is rumored to have been working on over the past couple of months.
October 14, 2014
Mike Tenay
Another person that could be walking away from TNA in the near future is Mike Tenay, their longtime play by play commentator. His contract with the company expires in January, so he is expected to work until then. Many within the industry believe that a new television deal will be finalized and announced before then, so a contract extension for Tenay would not be out of the question.
October 14, 2014
Samoa Joe
Reports have surfaced that Samoa Joe and TNA parted ways after Bound For Glory 2014 once the contract between the two sides expired. As many already know, the company has been allowing top level performers to walk away because they simply do not want to make big financial commitments until a new television deal is secured. The belief is that Joe could be brought back on board once a new home on television has been found.
October 14, 2014
Daniel Bryan
Fans of Daniel Bryan were given a degree of optimism not too long ago when reports surfaced that he would be healthy enough to make a return at Royal Rumble 2015. However, new reports are coming out that the former world heavyweight champion is still have issues regaining strength in his arms, so the timetable is said to be pushed back to Wrestlemania 31.
October 14, 2014
Kurt Angle
While reports have surfaced that Kurt Angle has indeed been in negotiation with WWE on his final contract in the business, the former world heavyweight champion has not ruled out a potential return to TNA because the company is more than willing to give him the part time deal that he prefers. Angle has publicly stated that this will be his final contract as a wrestler, and he wants to try to gain more ground in Hollywood.
October 14, 2014
Bully Ray
During Bound For Glory 2014, Bully Ray and Devon specifically mentioned the Bullet Club, a stable in New Japan. That is of interest because the pay per view was promoted by Great Muta and Wrestle-1. This has led to speculation that Team 3D may end up signing with Jeff Jarrett and Global Force Wrestling because the company has a partnership with New Japan.
