Antonio Cesaro
"Not sure why as a fan I should dislike Cesaro and it can't be simply because he's aligned himself with Paul Heyman. Cesaro simply outwrestles people and is damned impressive while doing it. Some of Cesaro's matches down in NXT the last year or so were better than anyone on RAW was having at the time." - Jim Ross thinks Antonio Cesaro should do a face turn
April 15, 2014
Diamond Dallas Page
"David Arquette is his own animal. As much heat as he ever took, for him, all the money he made for that pay per view when he busted me over the head with the guitar and Jeff Jarrett took the world title, the money he made, he gave to Melanie Pillman. When he pinned Eric Bischoff, not me, and I will go on record as saying that was the biggest clusterfuck ever, and it never should have happened, but it did. That being said, that was the booking committee. It was not Arquette, and every fan that has ever roasted him, should dip their own ass in boiling oil because everyone of you that has buried Arquette, if put in the same position, you would have jumped through a hoop of burning oil to do the same shit. That's why when everyone busts his balls on that, I just want to smack someone. I'm like, "really, you, Marko Mark? You would have died for that." - Diamond Dallas Page defending David Arquette for winning a championship
March 24, 2014
Bret Hart
"When you look at it closely, CM Punk's burned out. He's always given 100 percent in all his matches, and delivered some of the best pay-per-view matches in the past 10 years. And it's not easy when there are legends who only work part-time, and guys like Punk and Daniel Bryan do all the work, and watch someone like Brock Lesnar check out Wrestling i n c.walk in and take those big matches and big paydays without having to be on the road all the time. I think that had a lot to do with his decision, and rightfully so. One of Vince McMahon's favorite sayings is, 'Life's not fair.' I don't see Punk being a factor at WrestleMania, but he still has a lot of greatness left in him. As a fan, I hope he comes back, and as a wrestler, I have a lot of respect for him, too." - Bret Hart talks about CM Punk leaving WWE
March 21, 2014
Diamond Dallas Page
"I thought it was awesome. I love the kid. He was having the time of his life because he was a fan of all of us. So he couldn't wait for the Vader Bomb or the Diamond Cutter. I mean he loved it. And he's a good kid, he's a damn good worker. I hope at some point he actually gets the push. He could back it up because he can talk and he can work." - Diamond Dallas Page on how Heath Slater is backstage
February 27, 2014
CM Punk
"I am a big fan of Jim Ross, but disagree with him and others about CM Punk or anyone else needing to honor their contract. If a promotion is not carrying out their end of the bargain and fucking your career with all the advantages that they have (labeling us independent contractors, no pensions, etc), fuck them." - Konnan discussing views on business
February 18, 2014
CM Punk
"Well, I had that happen. Stone Cold did that and went home. And he regrets it to this very day. Because he just--you never get into a situation where--there's a couple of basics things here. One is that you don't want to get into a situation where it becomes easy for you as a professional or in private life to start breaking commitments. And a contract is a commitment. I think that the other thing is that you never get--you never save enough money nor can you live a starkness existence. The way you got all the money you're ever gonna need and you live good money laying behind. I personally don't believe in that. And I think a lot of the wrestlers over the years would say the same thing. So I'm not a fan of anybody in any walk of life exiting before it's time. But I also don't know all the information. This may have been a situation where Punk needed to take his leave and recharge his batteries a long time ago. I don't know. I haven't been there. And I have observed his privacy by not reaching out to him in several weeks." - Jim Ross compares the backstage heat incidents involving CM Punk and Steve Austin
February 15, 2014
Brock Lesnar
"With Brock I'll be honest with you, he was getting paid about four or five times more than everyone else in the developmental programme because of who he was. You don't come across an athletic specimen like that who won the NCAA Heavyweight Championship everyday. However he was not a natural wrestling fan, not a natural wrestling student, he was a bit boring in the ring to be honest because he wasn't used to being a showman. Also for a world class athlete I didn't think he was trying five times as hard as his salary." - Jim Cornette discusses Brock Lesnar as a developmental wrestler
February 14, 2014
Taz

"If I was in complete control of TNA, I would do anything, if WWE right now was going left; I would go right. And if they started going right; I would go left. So that's what I would do. I would try to be the complete opposite of WWE. That's just my opinion. I don't have millions invested. I don't make tons and tons of money as an upper management guy. I don't go in focus groups. I'm not part of that whole research team. I, this is just some blue-collared guy from Brooklyn that wrestled for a living that talks about wrestlers now giving you my opinion. Doesn't mean I'm right. I'm probably wrong. But that's just what I would do as a wrestling fan and a former wrestler; is try to be, look I think our show last night, it looked awesome."

- Taz discussing how he would run TNA if he was in charge backstage

February 3, 2014
Daniel Bryan

"Daniel Bryan wasn't going to win Royal Rumble 2013. He gets tossed out. His fan base would be more upset than him not being in it at all. Just my opinion."

- Kevin Nash defending WWE and their decision

January 30, 2014
Hulk Hogan

"This is WrestleMania 30. I've pinned Hogan once and he's never pinned me. From a fan's perspective, and WWE Universe and Vince McMahon, it never had closure. The business that would be done, the interviews and stuff would be coming from the heart. We could try to outraise the bar of the WWE entertainment machine in our sport, if they let us go toe to toe and don't script us. The fans will see really how it got started and why, and then they'll see the conclusion. They are asking can I get in shape. I am already in shape! They are asking Hulk Hogan. But there is a fear, I guess, of whether we can pull off the performance."

- Roddy Piper

January 22, 2014
Dixie Carter

"You know they are changing their website, you haven't heard about this? You haven't heard about TNA changing their website? Instead of TNAWrestling.com it is going to be TNAWrestling.org because it's a non-profit organization. Actually they have come up with a new strategy for 2014, Dixie Carter keeps teasing these big, major ideas. She finally hit on a genius idea that I think is going to turn TNA around in 2014. Starting on the first, they are going to let all of the fans in the shows for free and charge them to get out."

- Jim Cornette

January 22, 2014
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
March 21, 2014
Colt Cabana

"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."

December 25, 2013
Colt Cabana

"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."

December 24, 2013
Elijah Burke
Earlier this month, rumors spread that Elijah Burke was going to be joining Jeff Jarrett in Global Force Wrestling because he was hanging out in New Orleans with the TNA founder and his wife, Karen Jarrett. Burke has added even more fuel to those rumors recently on Twitter when he hinted to a fan that he was going to be back on television soon.
April 19, 2014
Austin Aries
If you're a big fan of Austin Aries, then you're going to be disappointed at the upcoming rounds of Impact Wrestling, as the former TNA World Heavyweight Champion will not be utilized as frequently as he should. Rumors going around right now is that he had a big blowup backstage at a recent set of television tapings, and management is none too pleased with Aries at the moment.
April 18, 2014
Rock
While speaking to the media in Australia this week, Rock revealed that he wants to be in the next James Bond movie. The former WWE champion is a big fan of Daniel Craig, who plays the title role. Rock also noted that his grandfather once played a villain in a James Bond movie, and he would love to follow in his footsteps.
April 17, 2014
Bruno Sammartino
Rumors have it that Triple H is the main driving force behind Bruno Sammartino staying involved with WWE. The company already has received his biggest marketing contributions when he was inducted into the hall of fame, but since HHH is a big fan of Sammartino, the two sides are maintaining a working relationship. Sammartino was at Wrestlemania 30 weekend, even though he was not featured on screen.
April 14, 2014
Prince Devitt
In regards to the rumors of Prince Devitt signing with TNA, the belief is that it is very unlikely. The company made him the offer, and they're leaving the ball in his court. Devitt makes a very good amount of money with New Japan, so the only reason why he would come work for TNA is to try to build a bigger fan base for himself in the United States.
April 13, 2014
Curt Hawkins
Those that know Curt Hawkins know that he is a big fan of the Ultimate Warrior, so when news surfaced about the death of the legendary WWE star, Hawkins was obviously affected deeply. As a bit of a tribute, Hawkins had some students at his new wrestling school in New Jersey do a little in ring tribute to Warrior in this picture.
April 13, 2014
Chris Jericho
One of the things that makes Chris Jericho a beloved wrestler is the fact that he grew up a fan like most of us did. Ultimate Warrior was one of his childhood heroes, so he posted this message on Twitter about his death. He also noted how Warrior's match against Hulk Hogan at Wrestlemania 6 was one of his all time favorites.
April 8, 2014
Miz
Even though he is no longer being featured as a top level wrestler, the Miz should not have any concerns about his job security within WWE. Management is currently working on a movie script on a film called Queen of the Ring, and Miz will be heavily featured in the movie. Queen of the Ring is about a woman who becomes a WWE diva in order to get closer to her son, who is a wrestling fan.
April 8, 2014
Damien Sandow
Despite the guy still having a large fan base, the return of Rob Van Dam was removed from the Hulu broadcast of Monday Night Raw this week. The former world heavyweight champion defeated Damien Sandow in a quick match, but WWE did not view it as a segment important enough to be shown to their fans on Hulu. A lot of eyes will be on RVD now to see how much of a push that he receives from management.
April 8, 2014
Brock Lesnar
The majority of the sellout audience at Wrestlemania 30 were rooting for the Undertaker to beat Brock Lesnar, but his biggest fan of the evening might have been his wife, former WWE diva Michelle McCool. She was in attendance in New Orleans, and she looked just as emotional as everyone else did when the shocking ending happened.
April 7, 2014
Undertaker
A video created by a WWE fan that showcases the Wrestlemania winning streak of the Undertaker as seen through WWE 2K14.
April 6, 2014
Daniel Bryan
Since Vince McMahon is a big fan of tinkering, there are plans backstage right now to do a last minute stipulation addition to the match between Daniel Bryan and Triple H at Wrestlemania 30. WWE is thinking about turning it into a Submission Match or a No Disqualification Match. Some feel that a normal match between the two would not be good enough.
April 5, 2014
Scott Norton
While he expressed his desire to make a return in a feature article for WWE last month, there are no plans within the company to bring Scott Norton back into the mix. Officials are not even interested in a cameo appearance, as they feel that the current fan base simply would not connect with the former WCW star.
March 26, 2014
Manik
A fan created this video of a WWE 2K14 simulated match between Manik and Tigre Uno, based on their performance at TNA Lockdown 2014.
March 23, 2014
Camacho
When WWE announced the arrival of the Slam City cartoon series earlier this week, only guys from the main rosters were included as characters. A fan decided to go the extra step by drawing Sasha Banks, Camacho, Mojo Rawley and CJ Parker as characters for the show. Management has no intentions of including WWE NXT stars as of this moment, though.
March 22, 2014
Jay Lethal
In a rather interesting story that made the news, Jay Lethal and Sonjay Dutt were at a grocery store in England, where they are working a tour, when they were spotted by a wrestling fan named Phill Maher. He invited the former TNA stars to his house to have tea, and surprisingly enough, both of them agreed to do so.
March 22, 2014
Scott Hall
If you are a Scott Hall fan and are getting nervous that he will not be inducted into the hall of fame at Wrestlemania 30, then fear not, as WWE is still heavily rumored to be adding his name into the mix. The company generally inducts around six to seven names, and the belief is that management wanted to save Hall, one of the bigger names in this class, as the last announcement.
March 17, 2014
Dean Ambrose
Now that he is featured prominently on Monday Night Raw and Smackdown, a lot of fans have grown curious about the personal life of Dean Ambrose. Some believe that this picture is of the WWE star and his girlfriend, while others believe that it is simply a fan taking a picture with the US champion.
March 17, 2014
Ashley Massaro
If you're a big fan of the Spirit Squad and live in New York, then you might want to head to the Queensboro Elks Lodge in Queens on March 29 because Kenny Dykstra and Mike Mondo will be teaming up at an independent wrestling show there. SoCal Val has been booked as their manager for the evening. Jerry Lawler and Ashley Massaro are being advertised as well.
March 15, 2014
Daniel Bryan
A list was made internally within the company about which five wrestlers are going to be leading WWE after Wrestlemania 30. John Cena and Randy Orton were obvious choices. While some did not want him on there, Daniel Bryan made the list. Despite suffering a dip in popularity, Sheamus is on the list and will be pushed. Roman Reigns, the fan favorite is the fifth guy.
March 13, 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.
March 26, 2014
Colt Cabana
Since their first commercial proved to be more successfully than the company had initially expected, there are talks now that Kentucky Friend Chicken is thinking about doing another video with Colt Cabana and Cliff Compton soon. The former WWE stars portrayed arm wrestlers during the first commercial.

March 12, 2014
Sonjay Dutt

February 17, 2014
Colt Cabana

February 16, 2014
Colt Cabana
Trent Baretta posted a picture of himself trying to feed a cow on Twitter. The former WWE star is actually in India, where the natives worship the animal as some sort of god, to work the big Wrestling Mania event, which will also feature American performers like Sonjay Dutt and Colt Cabana.
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.
February 7, 2014
Sonjay Dutt
Several wrestlers from the United States are currently in India for a big event called Wrestling Mania, and one of those performers is Colt Cabana. He has been checking out the country and posting various pictures on Twitter. Trent Baretta and Sonjay Dutt are two other wrestlers who are there as well.
February 7, 2014
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.

January 29, 2014
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.

January 16, 2014
Colt Cabana

With rumors swirling about Billy Corgan buying TNA, Colt Cabana jokes on Twitter about buying his band, the Smashing Pumpkins.

October 18, 2013
Camacho
"Dominance. I know that my opponent doesn't hit harder than me. Heck, my opponent probably doesn't even hit harder than my mom. I plan to accomplish my goals of being the No. 1 contender for the WWE NXT Title, becoming NXT Champion and then ridding this place of the circus characters that annoy me. After that, I'm gonna reconstruct the foundation of NXT and rebuild this place the right way. I'm gonna make NXT respectable again." - Camacho talking about his stint in developmental
April 20, 2014
Jim Ross
"Where did the info come from that ESPN was interested in Renee Young? Not saying it's true or not but it certainly made the rounds quickly within the IWC. Renee is a talented, young woman, without question, and I wish her the best no matter what she decides to do long term with her career. Renee has skills, a great look and isn't a high maintenance talent but is easy to produce." - Jim Ross on rumors about ESPN being interested in WWE interviewer Renee Young
April 20, 2014
Kevin Nash
"I love Roddy Piper and respect him. What I did was disrespectable. He was a legend. I was a raw Detroit guy. Wish it didn't happen. I fucked up. When you strike a man and see fear in his face at my size, you realize you're playing the bully. I was bullied as a 6'10, 212 pound 14 year old." - Kevin Nash apologizing to Roddy Piper
April 20, 2014
Eric Bischoff
"Roddy Piper is a deranged old fool. He got bitch slapped to the floor. Hulk Hogan, Sean Waltman, Scott Hall and Eric Bischoff were in the room. Let it go, Rod. Pod cast invite?" - Kevin Nash telling a backstage story about Roddy Piper and mockingly asks for an invitation to do a podcast interview
April 20, 2014
Manik
"My contract was started midway thru the year last year but altogether with salary+appearances I was on pace for roughly $75,000-$84,000 for a year period. That's if my schedule is as busy as it was last summer/fall. Also that's only counting TNA. I'd make a lot more if I kept up with other bookings outside but I just don't. I'm also guaranteed a huge chunk of that regardless of if I wrestle or not. So it's pretty ok considering I do what I love. I'm on the low end on the roster too. Most guys do way better than me." - Manik reveals salary in TNA
April 19, 2014
Mick Foley
"Honestly, I'm probably not going to sign my Legends deal with WWE because I don't think they did the right thing by the guys with the video game. The check was a little low. Last year, there was a bankruptcy, but this year there wasn't. So, I don't see the upside to signing the Legends deal when the carrot isn't there dangling. So, I'm not going to sign my Legends deal." - Mick Foley reveals why he is not signing a new contract with WWE
April 19, 2014
Corey Graves
"When I was in first grade, I was Ultimate Warrior for Halloween. I just watched his hall of fame speech two hours ago. I don't even have words." - WWE developmental star Corey Graves on the death of the Ultimate Warrior
April 19, 2014

April 19, 2014
Trent Baretta
"Hey, let's stop pretending to be offended by what some shitty old lady said about wrestling on a fake news show." - Trent Baretta discusses the backstage heat that professional wrestlers have towards Nancy Grace
April 19, 2014
Mr Anderson
"That was actually my idea. I said in passing one day, 'What about me dressing up as old Sting?' I mean, I had the blonde hair. And Sting actually loved it. Those outfits that I wore were actually Sting's old gear. And he painted my face. A cool moment. Looking back on that, I would have to slide him into that group of most significant opponents that I've had." - Mr Anderson talks about working with Sting
April 18, 2014
AJ Styles
"It's nuts to think that we could have four major wrestling promotions in the United States. Jeff's very smart, there's no doubt about it. He knows what he's doing, and always has a backup plan. He took TNA from nothing and turned it into something that's still around 12 years later. That's pretty darn good. That's an accomplishment right there. I trust Jeff. I trust him to put on something good, and something that people will watch." - AJ Styles on Jeff Jarrett and his new Global Force Wrestling
April 18, 2014
Mick Foley
"He was an intense guy, and he was a perfectionist. His career was based on looking as good as possible. That meant eating as good as possible, training as hard as possible, avoiding anything that a normal human being might reach out to in their everyday culinary affairs." - Mick Foley on the diet that Ultimate Warrior had
April 17, 2014
Jesse Neal
"It is funny how people make fun about real jobs and wrestlers. We are human, too. I have a family to provide for. So, yes, I manned up and provide. The biggest joke of all is I get paid way more at Walmart than I ever did in TNA and on time. What a waste of time. Print that. Don't think that this is bitterness. I'm not on their show any more. Remember, I left them. They didn't leave me." - Jesse Neal talks about his new job in life
April 17, 2014
Bray Wyatt
"So happy for Bray Wyatt. You deserve your moment, brother." - JTG praising Bray Wyatt before his match against John Cena at Wrestlemania 30
April 17, 2014
Jey Uso
"Obvious that Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso have committed to getting main event phsyical conditioning. I wish them well. They had in ring skills when they were eight years old. That's a fact." - Jim Ross praising the Usos
April 17, 2014
Ultimate Warrior
"I was told it was reported WWE was 'there' for us. 'There' is the understatement of a lifetime. They were a warm blanket to us three and we were quickly absorbed into their family. Words are cheap; promises are forever. This family is one I'm honored to be a member of and will gladly be the warm blanket to any of them who need me next." - the wife of the Ultimate Warrior informing fans of how much WWE has helped her since the death of her husband
April 16, 2014
Brutus Magnus
"I'm as grateful to Sting as anybody in the wrestling business for the benefit he has had in my career. Steve is a great guy and very very smart and just a model citizen as far as the way he conducts himself and how much respect he commands. There are some people who seem to be obsessed with respect and seem to be obsessed with guys not showing them enough respect but Sting is a guy who has never had to pull any stunts, never had to bully anyone, never had to throw his weight around or pull rank; he commands respect. The same could be said about Kurt Angle." - Brutus Magnus discusses how Sting is backstage
April 15, 2014
Jeff Jarrett
"Seems like TNA is signing their core talents whose contracts are either up or in need of revising. WWE has seemingly made it clear that they have no interest in Impact talents and will instead reply on their Performance Center for their future stars. However, with Jeff Jarrett preparing to launch another promotion it makes sense for TNA to be proactive." - Jim Ross reveals that WWE is not interested in TNA performers
April 15, 2014
Christopher Daniels
"A unique athlete, it's funny because he was a book that was judged by his cover, for a very long time and it took a while to get him into TNA and we were always fighting to get him in. Everybody was like 'we gotta change his look and blah blah blah,' but finally when they gave him the chance, he showed them that you didn't need to judge him by the cover because he brings a unique intensity and a unique character to TNA and I think it would be a different TNA without him. He has changed the business." - Christopher Daniels discusses Samoa Joe
April 15, 2014
Jim Ross
"I assume that he hasn't signed with WWE only because WWE hasn't announced it. Signing Sting would create positive news for WWE as he is a major star that WWE can monetize in a variety of ways if he comes aboard. I don't see Sting even needing to wrestle to be a viable asset to WWE if he does sign with the company. If Sting did have one match it WWE it would need to be a long build, much anticipated one that has a significant payoff at a major event more specifically Wrestlemania 31." - Jim Ross talks about the rumors of Sting signing with WWE
April 15, 2014
