Christy Hemme
While she has been working backstage in a variety of roles over the past year, Christy Hemme has now been officially added to the creative department in TNA. The belief is that she will be specializing in the Knockouts division, where it will be her job to come up with stories for the girls. She might also have a hand in the ongoing story with Sam Shaw as well.
April 10, 2014
Ric Flair
While the legendary Nature Boy is expected to be at the event, Ric Flair is not expected to be utilized on camera at Wrestlemania 30. WWE still has plans on making him into a manager for at least one of the performers, but the creative department has been much too busy over the last couple of months to come up with a story line for that.
April 4, 2014
CM Punk
A widespread belief in the industry is that if CM Punk were to return to WWE, it would have taken place at Monday Night Raw this week since it took place in his hometown of Chicago. The timing would have been great, and it would have enabled the creative department enough time to set him up for a big spot at Wrestlemania 30.
March 4, 2014
Big E Langston
Thought it would be heavily rushed into play, there are still those backstage in WWE that are pushing for Dean Ambrose to receive a singles match at Wrestlemania 30 against Big E Langston. It would be the match where the United States and Intercontinental Championship would be combined, so that the creative department no longer has to write for both belts.
March 1, 2014
Big Show
Even though he was not booked for Elimination Chamber 2014, Big Show is still very much in contention for a coveted match at Wrestlemania 30. Right now, WWE simply had nothing for him from the creative department. Plus, he replaced the Great Khali on an overseas promotional tour of India. He should be back on television soon.
February 24, 2014
Billy Gunn
Even though they lost at Elimination Chamber 2014, there are talks that Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso could be given a rematch tonight on Monday Night Raw. Since WWE wants it to be a special episode, they're wanting at least one title change to take place. Road Dogg and Billy Gunn could be the casualties of the creative department tonight.
February 24, 2014
Christy Hemme
There are talks backstage in TNA that the story line featuring Sam Shaw and Christy Hemme will eventually involve Ethan Carter. Management wants to pair up the two of them together at some point, so the creative department has been trying to figure out how to blend the story stories and characters together.
February 23, 2014
Christy Hemme
It looks like Christy Hemme is growing in power backstage in TNA, as it has now been revealed that she is working closely with the Knockouts division. The belief is that she helping to set up the promos, matches and stories. While it is not certain if she is an official member of the creative department yet, it appears that she does have a lot of say.
February 22, 2014
Xavier Woods
While there looked to be some promise early on, it now appears that WWE is no longer pushing Xavier Woods. He has been largely neglected on Monday Night Raw and Smackdown over the last few weeks, and the belief is that the creative department has been inundated with things to do before Wrestlemania 30, so Woods will have to wait.
February 21, 2014
Kaitlyn
Through Twitter, Kaitlyn revealed that she had recorded a shoot video, and it has been gaining the interest of many backstage in WWE. There are rumors that she finally reveals what led her to request her release from the company. As many already know, Kaitlyn was a little bit unhappy towards the end of her stint there, as she felt that the creative department could have used her better.
February 15, 2014
Stephanie McMahon

When it was announced that she was changing her official title within the company, there were some speculations that Stephanie McMahon was still going to be heavily involved in the creative department in WWE, but it now appears that she truly has embraced her new role and is rarely involved with the writing for Monday Night Raw and Smackdown.

February 11, 2014
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
Booker T
While he hasn't been a relevant part of Monday Night Raw or Smackdown in quite some time now, Theodore Long is still actually employed by WWE. The creative department simply does not have a story line for him to work with at the moment. The long rumored feud between he and Booker T has essentially been put to rest and will not be utilized.
February 8, 2014
Big E Langston
Initially, Mark Henry was supposed to have made his return on Monday Night Raw last week. However, the creative department were not able to get him on the show. He is expected to work a program with Big E Langston, who was thrown into a random six man tag team match with Rey Mysterio and Kofi Kingston on the latest episode.
February 8, 2014
Big E Langston

While there are still plans by WWE to push him, Big E Langston has essentially been neglected by the creative department over the last couple of weeks because the writers simply have not come up with anything for his character to do with Mark Henry being off television.

February 3, 2014
Bray Wyatt

Rumor has it that Bray Wyatt has earned the trust of WWE officials backstage to the point where he is now being allowed to write his own promos. He still needs approval from the creative department before using them on Monday Night Raw and Smackdown, though.

February 3, 2014
CM Punk

One of the notable absences from Monday Night Raw this week was CM Punk. Since things were chaotic with the creative department, the script for the show was heavily edited at the last minute. Punk was initially supposed to work a qualifying match for Elimination Chamber 2014.

January 28, 2014
Dolph Ziggler

Internally, the match between Dolph Ziggler and Miz on Monday Night Raw was viewed as a filler match. The creative department simply added the Cleveland theme, in hopes of getting a little reaction from the live audience. WWE has no plans of making this program a big deal.

January 28, 2014
Wade Barrett

That big push for Wade Barrett isn't likely to take place any time soon. The feeling is that WWE is giving him television time each week, in order to fill up the three hours of Monday Night Raw. Plus, his segments are said to amuse the script writers in the creative department.

January 28, 2014
Colt Cabana
Since he left the company, WWE fans have been eager to get a glimpse of CM Punk. His appearance on the Talking Dead created quite the buzz. So did a brief glimpse at the airport, where the former world champion was picking up his girlfriend, AJ Lee. Now, Punk has been spotted again, this time he is with Colt Cabana at an NHL game.

Colt Cabana
"Yeah, a lot of people tweeted it towards me. I think he is entitled to his opinion. You can't fault people for having an opinion. Luckily for me, I've never been put in a position to hire and fire people, and he was in that position and he can't hire everybody. I'm one of the people that Jim Cornette didn't want. Obviously the people that he didn't want aren't going to be happy about it. That's life. I could hold a grudge, but I don't. I understand that you have to hire and you have to fire and the ones that you fire aren't going to be happy. It's about going on and moving on. Luckily, I've done way bigger and better things since leaving Ring of Honor. Maybe it was a mistake by them for letting me go, and maybe it wasn't if they're happy with the direction that they've gone. I don't hold any grudge against Jim. I'm almost kind of thankful that I was able to go on to better places in my career." - Colt Cabana addresses the backstage heat he has with Jim Cornette

February 9, 2014
Colt Cabana
There are those that believe that the backstage heat situation with CM Punk right now will have a major effect on whether or not WWE brings Colt Cabana on board as an announcer. The two of them are really good friends, and the belief is that Punk was the reason why management gave Cabana a second chance at trying out for what was rumored to be a spot on the WWE Network.
February 8, 2014
CM Punk
According to Colt Cabana, the backstage heat incident between WWE and CM Punk is not a work, like speculated by wrestling fans who are hoping to see him coming back soon. Cabana mentioned that Punk has been upset with the company for quite some time now, and he's extremely displeased at the moment, so a quick return is unlikely.

Colt Cabana

Colt Cabana, a good friend of CM Punk in real life, was given another tryout not too long ago with WWE, but the company opted not to sign him to a contract just yet. It now appears that he is being considered for a possible role on the upcoming WWE Network.

Colt Cabana

Since it has been a couple of months now since his tryout to be a commentator, it does not appear that Colt Cabana will be picked up by WWE anytime soon. Some are even speculating that the courtesy was extended as a favor to CM Punk.

"CM Punk did the most memorable promo in the past 20 years of wrestling to 4 million people watching at home and I'm sure millions more who watched it online," Colt said. "If even 10 percent of the people who watched it scratched their heads and looked me, that's a whole lot of people. At the time he did that promo I had a lot of different projects going and things that I was very proud of including my podcast. I always say you can lead a horse to water but you can't make the horse drink s***** water. I like to think I had some great tasting water. Since that time a lot of people have come to check me out and stayed on for the ride. It's been great having those people as fans."

"I'm just riding the wave of fun right now. The WWE has been weirdly talking with me for over a year now. I can't rely on them though. I do my own thing until stuff gets concrete. Right now, I can't worry if I'll be doing announcing or anything else. I know I want to concentrate on continuing to wrestle around the world and growing my comedy stuff. All I can say about the future is that I'm going to be having fun with wrestling. That's a guarantee."
