CM Punk
There are reports floating around right now that the reason why AJ Lee was not chosen to be a cast member on Total Divas is because she is married to CM Punk. However, she has repeatedly stated in the past that she was not interested in doing a reality television show. She enjoys her privacy and prefers to focus on being a wrestler. Management recently added Alicia Fox and Paige to the series.

CM Punk
Reports have surfaced this week that TNA had made a big contract offer to CM Punk to join the company. Management has long been interested in acquiring the former world heavyweight champion, but they needed to wait until his deal with WWE expired, in order to avoid a potential tampering lawsuit. Punk has a good amount of name value and would be quite appealing to television networks.

CM Punk
While he has not appeared on television for WWE in quite some time, CM Punk can still be seen from time to time on screen. The former world heavyweight champion was recently spotted at a Chicago Cubs game, where he was shown on screen, wishing Wrigley Field a happy birthday. The belief is that Punk and WWE have not been communicating.

CM Punk
With CM Punk not being on television for a couple of months now, his merchandise sales have been slumping a bit. That has enabled Daniel Bryan to move to the second spot on the list of WWE stars who move the most units. Management wants to try to close the gap between Bryan and John Cena, who sits at the top spot by a considerable margin.
April 24, 2014
CM Punk
One of the things that was being discussed by WWE backstage before Monday Night Raw was the appearance that CM Punk made for the Talking Dead television show. Many noted how he looked a lot healthier than he had been for the previous year. The much needed time off has been very good for the former world heavyweight champion.

CM Punk
In a rather interesting development, it has now been announced that CM Punk will be making his return to television next week. Unfortunately for WWE fans, however, it will not be done on Monday Night Raw or Smackdown. The former world heavyweight champion will be making another appearance on the Talking Dead, his first time in public since walking out on Vince McMahon.

CM Punk

Some details are emerging about CM Punk leaving WWE. It is now being reported that the former world heavyweight champion walked out before Monday Night Raw even started. He told Vince McMahon, who kept heavily changing up the television script throughout the day, that he was leaving before the episode aired.

January 29, 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
John Cena
Even though he could possibly still be with WWE for the next several years, John Cena is now taking steps to ensure that he will have income after his wrestling days are over. The former heavyweight champion has partnered up with Leftfield Pictures, and they are going to be producing a variety of reality television shows to shop to the networks. Leftfield Pictures has had much success with Pawn Stars.
October 22, 2014
Vince McMahon
Chalk up another victory for Vince McMahon and his quest to draw in a younger audience. The company has reached a deal with Nickelodeon. The network will start airing episodes of Slam City this week. For those that are not aware, it is a cartoon based on the WWE performers getting jobs outside of wrestling. It had previously been airing solely on the WWE Network, but it is now available on television.
October 21, 2014
Alicia Fox
The expanding cast of Total Divas will include Alicia Fox next season. WWE has decided to include as many of their female performers as possible on the show, and Alicia was quite willing to sign up for the reality television show. For a lot of the girls, the hope is that the extra exposure will help them build up their name value for when they eventually leave the company and pursue other things.
October 20, 2014
Gene Snitsky
Through social media, Gene Snitsky has expressed his dissatisfaction with TNA for not bringing him on board full time. He did a couple of segments on Impact Wrestling this summer, but management has opted to remain fiscally responsible, as they are still trying to secure a new television contract. The company is expected to start signing wrestlers are that happens.
October 19, 2014
Dixie Carter
Reports have surfaced that TNA will announce their new television deal before the end of October. It is being said that Dixie Carter has informed business partners that an announcement is coming soon, in hopes of alleviating some of the concerns that they currently have with Impact Wrestling. Still no word yet on which network the company will be signing on with, though.
October 17, 2014
Brodus Clay
Back in June, Brodus Clay was given a release by WWE, so he informed his fans that his professional wrestling career was far from over. After exploring his options in Japan, the former bodyguard for Snoop Dogg decided to remain stateside by signing with TNA. He made his television debut for the company this week on Impact Wrestling by aligning himself with Ethan Carter and defeating Shark Boy in a match.
October 16, 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
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
Brad Maddox
An interesting return took place at a WWE live event in Macon, Georgia this week. Brad Maddox came out and worked a match. He had previously been pulled from television when management dropped his on screen character. Since he was given a match to work, the speculation is that the company will finally give him a chance to be a full time performer on the main roster.
October 12, 2014
Alexander Rusev
While he does not have a story line or a feud on Monday Night Raw, Bray Wyatt has been working against Big Show, most recently during the brief tour of Malaysia. That has led to speculations that the two of them could be bringing that feud to television soon. However, Big Show is expected to put over Alexander Rusev, which would bring him down a notch. Management is concerned about putting Wyatt against mid card performers after moving him all the way up to John Cena.
October 11, 2014
Jeff Jarrett
There is a lot of interest in the upcoming pay per view event that Jeff Jarrett is doing in January. Performers within the entire industry are rooting for Global Force Wrestling to do well with their first show. Wrestlers have long been hoping for another place for potential employment, as WWE remains the top company and TNA is reportedly scaling back on salaries until they sign a new television deal.
October 9, 2014
Alexander Rusev
One of the reasons why WWE issued an apology in regards to the recent segment featuring Big Show and Alexander Rusev is because they have television shows in that country. The flag incident did make the news, but it was not considered a big deal over there because many are aware that it was simply an act. It also helps that there is a Russian loyalist character being booked strong.
October 9, 2014
Hulk Hogan
When it was announced that the two sides had reached a contract agreement for a return, many were under the impression that we would be seeing plenty of Hulk Hogan on WWE television. However, management has opted against utilizing him too frequently. The belief is that financial restrictions are a big reason why the company has opted to use him only for special events.
October 9, 2014
Bray Wyatt
Since management really likes the character and wants him back on television and pay per view events, there are talks of doing a baby face turn with Bray Wyatt. WWE ran out of top level opponents for him to work against once he was done with John Cena and Chris Jericho. Wyatt would have a couple of fresh heel opponents to work against if he were to switch sides.
October 9, 2014
Paul Heyman
Even though he is one of the most popular and entertaining performers, WWE is planning on keeping Paul Heyman off of Monday Night Raw and Smackdown until at least January. The belief is that management does not want to draw attention to the fact that their world heavyweight champion is not around for television shows. Lesnar and Heyman should be back in time to promote Royal Rumble 2015.
October 9, 2014
Brock Lesnar
With Brock Lesnar taking the WWE championship home with him during his typical break from the business, Paul Heyman has been left hanging. The massively popular manager has been omitted from a couple of episodes of Monday Night Raw, including the latest one. Management simply cannot find something for him to do while Lesnar is not on television.
October 7, 2014
Christian
If you are a big fan of Edge and Christian, then you might want to tune into Monday Night Raw this week. WWE revealed earlier today through Twitter that the two of them have just arrived. A picture was also posted of the former tag team champions getting out of a vehicle. No word yet on where they are, but there is a chance that they could appear on television tonight to promote the Smackdown week.
October 6, 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.
October 15, 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
CM Punk
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
Stephanie McMahon
In a rather bold move, Stephanie McMahon took the opportunity during the opening segment of Monday Night Raw to bash CM Punk, as the show was emanating from Chicago, where the former world heavyweight champion resides. She admonished the fans for chanting for a quitter. Stephanie also appeared to have taken a jab at Punk's personal life by stating that he quit on his real life family.
September 30, 2014
Hulk Hogan
If you're a big fan of Hulk Hogan, then you do not want to miss Monday Night Raw this week. The WWE legend and Jimmy Hart have flown into Chicago for the event. Hogan is definitely expected to make an on screen appearance. Some are speculating that his presence is needed to help promote the company's fight against breast cancer, while others think that he is there to help control the audience from going overboard with their chants for CM Punk.
September 29, 2014
CM Punk
In a move that appears to be very petty, WWE muted the audience reaction when CM Punk was revealed for the upcoming WWE 2K15 roster. Management initially kept things cordial between the two sides when Punk first left because they were hoping that he would consider a return. However, now that a reunion is very unlikely to happen, some bitterness has started to show.
September 27, 2014
CM Punk
Since he no longer has the burden of the hectic WWE schedule to worry about, CM Punk has been enjoying his time tremendously. The former world heavyweight champion was recently spotted at the Riot Fest music event in Chicago. Punk was even invited onstage by a band called The Bouncing Souls and performed a song with them.
September 15, 2014
CM Punk
Last week, CM Punk had his lawyers send a 22 page letter to WWE regarding his royalty payments, and it appears that the company is responding by quickly removing his merchandise from their online store and at live events. The belief is that management does not want to keep paying Punk money, but at the same time, they already spent money on creating the merchandise.
September 9, 2014
CM Punk
While many fans were wondering when WWE was going to sue CM Punk, it appears that the other way around is happening first. The former world heavyweight champion had his lawyers send a 22 page letter to the company. In it was a complaint in regards to royalties and the company's rights to use his likeness. Reports are saying that WWE stopped paying Punk because they felt that he breached his contract.
September 3, 2014
AJ Lee
When you're a top star for WWE, you lose a good amount of privacy. Fans want in on your private life. Having done the job for years, CM Punk was already well aware of this. However, it reared its ugly nose in his life again this week. A photo from his wedding with AJ Lee was leaked online, and that thoroughly upset Punk. He even posted a message on Twitter about the matter.
September 1, 2014
CM Punk
If you've been holding your breath in hopes of CM Punk returning to WWE, you should probably exhale right about now. Paul Heyman revealed in an interview that he does not believe that the former world heavyweight champion will ever lace up the boots again. He also noted that WWE will not allow Punk to return to the company because management really dislikes how he walked out on his contract.
August 5, 2014
CM Punk
Rumors are heating up that Jim Ross and CM Punk are going to head to New Japan to work together as commentators. Those were actually started by Ross himself, as the former WWE commentator simply speculated on the possibility during his podcast show. As of right now, there have been no negotiations, and Ross himself has stated that he has yet to talk to Punk about the idea.
August 3, 2014
Vince McMahon
While there was a bit of rumblings backstage that WWE was going to pursue legal action against CM Punk for walking out of his contract, rumors are floating around that management is hesitant to do so. For starters, now might not be a good time to sink money into a lawsuit since there are so many employees being released. Secondly, Vince McMahon is really focused on the WWE Network at the moment, so a lawsuit might be a bit of a distraction from the CEO.
August 2, 2014
CM Punk
While doing an interview on the red carpet, CM Punk was asked about a potential return to WWE down the line, and he decided to take the opportunity to poke humor at the situation. The former world heavyweight champion stated that he would never ever return to WWE. He was obviously joking, but that has caused some confusion with fans who were not paying close attention to his tone during the interview.
July 22, 2014
CM Punk
One the things that made Kenta Kobayashi so famous in Japan was his diverse moves set. Unfortunately, though, a lot of his signature maneuvers cannot e utilized in WWE. His Go 2 Sleep finisher is commonly associated with CM Punk nowadays. His knee finisher and submission move are both being used by Daniel Bryan. The belief is that WWE will have him come up with new moves in developmental.
July 20, 2014
Jim Ross
While doing a podcast interview with Jim Ross, Kurt Angle discussed the topic of CM Punk and his departure from WWE earlier in the year. Angle stated that he was not aware of how injured Punk was until recently. Upon finding that out, Angle stated that he respected Punk's decision to leave, in order to preserve his health. Angle did also mention that Punk had issues with WWE over the booking and the direction of his character.
July 19, 2014
CM Punk
When the company moved CM Punk from their official roster to the alumni section yesterday, WWE created a bit of a stir. Things escalated even further when management removed his merchandise from the WWE Shop website. Apparently, there was some miscommunication within the company on the matter. All of his merchandise have been returned to the online store.
July 17, 2014
CM Punk
Reports are going around that CM Punk could be officially gone from WWE now. The former world heavyweight champion has been removed from the active roster list on the website. His profile has been moved over to the alumni section, which the company normally does when a performer is gone. Punk's contract is said to be expiring later on this week, so it's interesting that WWE pulled the trigger on the roster change ahead of time.
July 15, 2014
Vince McMahon
Since his contract is expiring in a few days, there were many who believed that WWE was going to extend their contract with CM Punk since he has been gone for an extended period of time. However, reports are surfacing that Vince McMahon is opting against that because he does not see a reconciliation on the horizon. Plus, WWE cannot afford to pay a performer to sit at home.
July 14, 2014
Mick Foley
Showing that some friendships extend beyond the business, Undertaker and his wife Michelle McCool recently attended a comedy show featuring Mick Foley. The longtime WWE couple wanted to show support for their old friend. The two of them even went backstage to catch up with Foley for a bit. Several wrestlers in the industry, including CM Punk recently, have made the effort to go watch Foley tell jokes.
