Kenta Kobayashi
"He just signed with us. I was there when he had his tryout at the WWE Performance Center and I met with him there. We've been working on this for a while. His training will start when he gets here. The thing is, you can be a big star anyplace else in the world. That gets you in the door. What you do once you get here is a whole different ballgame. He's no different than anybody else once he walks through the door of the Performance Center." - Triple H on how Kenta Kobayashi will be treated in WWE

Michelle McCool
While she still has every intention of being a stay at home mother and wife, Michelle McCool decided to get out of the house on Monday. She made a visit to the WWE Performance Center. No word yet on why she was there this time around, but she has been known to drop in and help do a little training with the developmental divas. Her appearances always spark rumors of a return to WWE, so don't be surprised if the chatter increases over the next few days.

Brodus Clay
"He is a pro. He comes to work everyday. He is straight forward and tells you exactly what it is. One of my things was I didn't get to work a match with him. I would have dropped the weight I did and keep the muscle I have. He is a great leader in terms of he talks it; he walks it. He is the face of the WWE and likely so. John Cena gave us all an opportunity to train and have the same training regiment. The training of the NBA and NFL with Olympic lifts for maintenance, for power, better cardiovascular. He was on the forefront. He gave guys an opportunity." - Brodus Clay defending John Cena

Lacey Von Erich
"If you never want to have a family or a wife or time to yourself, and you like being verbally and mentally abused, then you should [get into wrestling]. I say go for it. [That abuse comes more from] the locker room. Definitely the locker room. TNA is very different than WWE. WWE was very political. I wasn't in there yet. They were like, 'You're a Von Erich. You better be amazing at wrestling,' and things like that. And I wasn't. I'm more of an actress than I am a wrestler. I'd rather play a character than get hurt on the mat. That's what I'm better at. I'm better at acting. That's what I wanted to do. Vince called me. He's the one that got me into this. He's the one asked me, 'Do you want to be a wrestler? Try to be a Diva?' He brought me out and and I signed the contract that night and went into training. I wasn't expecting it to come as much. It really blew up and they expected so much of me, but then TNA called and they really embraced me as like a family member." - Lacey Von Erich talking about backstage politics in WWE
April 22, 2014
Jack Swagger
"I had met Jim Ross and Jerry Brisco before I was even in college and they always told me to get your degree first and then we'll give you a shot if you want to come try your hand with the WWE. I graduated in May 2006, flew out to Atlanta for a week to tryout, and by July 2006 I was signed and training in Atlanta. I took a little bit different path than most WWE superstars have taken. I'm one of the few superstars who have gone through all three of the developmental camps." - Jack Swagger reveals his path to the WWE developmental program
April 21, 2014
El Torito
One of the ideas being tossed around right now backstage in WWE is to have Hornswoggle and El Torito wrestling one another on a pretty frequent basis. The two of them will be featured on Smackdown this week, and there could be more matches coming up. WWE had the two of them training together for a couple of weeks to ensure that the match quality is decent.

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
Sting

Andre the Giant
While he has been training especially hard over the last couple of months to make it happen, it is being said that the biggest reason why Brodus Clay is being given a match at Wrestlemania 30, where he will be a participant in the Andre the Giant battle royal, is because of his involvement in the new Scooby Doo movie that WWE is promoting.

LeiD Tapa

Taylor Wilde
When she walked away from professional wrestling a couple of years ago, the belief was that Taylor Wilde was open to a possible return some day.

The former Knockouts champion has been training to be a firefighter as of late.

Jim Cornette
"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

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

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."

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."
