In a rather peculiar move, WWE instructed the security personnel at Monday Night Raw to remove any signs that involves Sting.

Alexander Rusev
In a rather interesting move, Alexander Rusev has been removed from the Hulu broadcast of Monday Night Raw for the second week in a row.

AJ Lee
Even though she made her debut on Monday Night Raw and captured the WWE Divas Championship from AJ Lee in a shocking manner, Paige will not be traveling with the main roster this upcoming weekend.

Alexander Rusev
Despite the company being very high on the guy, Alexander Rusev had his debut match removed from the Hulu broadcast of Monday Night Raw this week. He defeated Zack Ryder in a squash match, but WWE officials deemed it not important enough to show their fans on Hulu. This leads to a lot of questions about how strong of a push Rusev will receive.
April 8, 2014
Sting
In a move that could signal his imminent debut in WWE, Sting has been removed from the official TNA roster page on their website.

The belief is that he has been negotiating with WWE over the past several weeks, and this could signal that a deal has been reached.

Tigre Uno
Ever since his debut with TNA, fans have been searching for information on the mysterious Tigre Uno.

Tigre Uno
After he made his second debut at TNA Lockdown 2014, a lot of wrestling fans became curious about Tigre Uno, so they went online in search of some information about the masked performer.

January 31, 2014
Alexander Rusev

January 31, 2014

Sting
There are rumors going around right now that WWE could air a promotional video for Sting at Wrestlemania 30, so that fans will tune into Monday Night Raw to see his debut.

April 5, 2014

March 23, 2014
Dick Murdoch
When he first made his debut in WWE, there were people who speculated that Trevor Murdoch might have been related to the late Dick Murdoch, a wrestler who made his name during the territorial days. However, there are no bloodlines between the two performers. Someone backstage in WWE simply gave Trevor the name because of his resemblance to Dick.
March 21, 2014
Mr Fuji
When the future WWE Hall of Fame inductee made his debut in professional wrestling in 1965, there were not a lot of prominent Asia people in the country, so Harry Fujiwara, who was actually born in the United States, opted to stop using his real name and shortened it to Mr Fuji. It was easier for promoters and fans to spell and pronounce, and the move paid off rather well.

March 9, 2014
Alexander Rusev
While he has been eager to make his return to the company, Evan Bourne does not appear to be much of a priority for WWE at this point. After Wrestlemania 30, the focus will be on pushing guys like Roman Reigns and Antonio Cesaro. Alexander Rusev is set to make his debut, so management will be focusing on him as well. Not a lot of room for Bourne in this scenario.
March 7, 2014
R Truth
While many are hoping that he eventually makes it to the main event level in WWE, there are those backstage that feel that his push needs to be drawn out, in order to prevent backlash from fans. Since management wants to go slow, there is a chance that they could feed him a low level baby face, such as Zack Ryder or R Truth, in his debut feud.
February 28, 2014
Alexander Rusev
While the company will continue to promote him in interview segments, WWE does not plan on doing the debut match for Alexander Rusev until after Wrestlemania 30.

February 24, 2014
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.
February 19, 2014
Alpha Female

February 6, 2014
Sting

If WWE could finally put together a deal that will entice him to sign, Sting could possibly make his debut in the company by being the person to induct the Ultimate Warrior into the hall of fame during Wrestlemania 30 weekend. The two were tag team partners at the beginning of their careers.

April 16, 2014
Batista
Even though he is one of the more known performers in the company, WWE is allowing Batista to skip out on the Saudi Arabia tour taking place this week. The belief when the former world heavyweight champion was brought back was that he would help with global marketing due to his history in the company and being a movie star.
April 16, 2014
Sami Zayn
When several of the WWE stars take off for Saudi Arabia this week, Sami Zayn will be joining them. He's the only developmental wrestler going on the tour.

April 16, 2014
Vince McMahon
WWE has issued a statement touting the fact that a record number of households watched Wrestlemania 30 this year. That total comes from both the WWE Network and traditional pay per view buys. One of the reasons why Vince McMahon wanted to launch the online service was to draw in more people for the pay per view with the lower monthly pricing.
April 16, 2014
Ultimate Warrior
Since there was still a buzz surrounding the professional wrestling industry, many had expected viewership for Monday Night Raw to increase this week because the company was doing a tribute to the Ultimate Warrior, who died last week. WWE was disappointed to learn that fewer people tuned in this week than for the episode after Wrestlemania 30.
April 16, 2014
Brooke Tessmacher

April 16, 2014
Chavo Guerrero

April 15, 2014
Brock Lesnar
While a lot of people assume that he is an asshole because of his reserved nature, Brock Lesnar actually impressed quite a bit of people in WWE with the amount of respect that he showed the Undertaker at Wrestlemania 30. Not only did he thanks Undertaker in the ring for letting him beat the streak, Lesnar also rode to the hospital afterwards to visit Undertaker.
April 15, 2014
Ultimate Warrior
Now that the autopsy test has been concluded, it has been officially announced that the Ultimate Warrior died of heart failure, with the official statement being "Atherosclerotic/Arteriosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease". This qualifies as being a natural death, where drugs and alcohol are not directly related. However, long term drug use in the past could have been indirectly related.
April 15, 2014
Rock
It has been a rather busy month for the Rock. First, he flies into New Olreans to give WWE a hand with Wrestlemania 30. Then, he heads over to England to finalize things with the Hercules movie.
