Hulk Hogan

Rumor has it that WWE had their medical personnel checking out Hulk Hogan to see if it was possible for the legendary performer to work a big match at Wrestlemania 30.

January 22, 2014
Brutus Magnus

Another person that TNA wants to push to the main event scene soon is Gunner. Many backstage feel that he can be elevated enough to be viewed as a worthy challenger for Brutus Magnus and the world title. The success of his story line with James Storm should help dictate that.

Taz

Another person that has been gaining some power backstage in TNA is Taz. Aside from being the voice of Impact Wrestling, he also has been helping out with the creative department. Taz was also instrumental in the return of Tommy Dreamer to the front office.

January 20, 2014
Crimson
Another potential signing for the new Jeff Jarrett promotion could be Crimson, who has been itching to get back with a national wrestling company since parting ways with TNA.

February 24, 2014
Kevin Von Erich
During a recent interview to promote his upcoming appearance at Slammiversary 2014, Kevin Von Erich revealed to the Dallas News that he normally avoids traveling because of a bad back suffered from years of being an in ring performer.

Jarrett has yet to tell his side of the story.
April 14, 2014
Buff Bagwell
"When I first heard the news of the Ultimate Warrior's passing - from my oldest son - my first thoughts were of his precious daughters, and how their father - whose love for them was clear - had been taken away from them far to early in their lives. My second thought was about the foolish tweet I sent out during Warrior's Hall of Fame induction speech - and how badly I wish I could have taken those words back. Maybe they seemed harmless at the time, but in retrospect, the fact that my final words about Warrior were negative ones has had me feeling pretty bad these last 24 hours. I did not dislike Warrior. I got along fine with him in 1996, and years later, during a 'Legends Rountable' focusing on 'Heatseekers', I was good-naturedly kidded by my fellow Roundtable guests for having nothing negative to say about Warrior, Paul Heyman or Buff Bagwell." - Mick Foley talks about his relationship with Ultimate Warrior
April 10, 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
Chris Benoit
David Benoit, the surviving son of Chris Benoit, recently released a shoot video, where he accuses WWE of not giving the family the last paycheck that Chris earned as a performer.

April 2, 2014
Brock Lesnar
"The friendship came together when we got together professionally back in 2002 and realized just how similar our goals were both professionally and personally. On a professional level, we both want to be the absolute best at our craft. We will settle for nothing less than being at the top of our game at every appearance and we want to leave a legacy of being the single, solitary best in that particular role the industry has ever seen. On a personal level, nothing means more to either one of us than our children and we will fight to the death for our children. And everything that we do including everything we do professionally revolves around, is about and is regarding the love that we have for our children. So both professionally and personally as much as we are different, you're talking about a South Dakota farm boy that is a natural born predator and conqueror and a smart ass New York Jew boy who's the son of a personal injury attorney from the Bronx. But as different as we are culturally, we are in terms as professionally and personally, we are very much alike." - Paul Heyman discusses his relationship with Brock Lesnar
April 1, 2014

March 22, 2014
Batista
It looks like the incident in Winnipeg involving Batista and a radio DJ was not staged after all. Cam Carson has been fired by Power 97, who sponsored the live event.

A woman is also claiming that her 11 year old son was injured by the DJ that night.

September 2, 2014
Alexander Rusev
Rumors are floating around right now that there is a good amount of backstage heat from management towards Zack Ryder. Some are even pointing to the fact that he was squashed by Alexander Rusev recently as evidence that WWE is upset with him for comments that he has made on social media.

September 2, 2014
Frankie Kazarian
AAA wanted Frankie Kazarian on board when they venture into the United States because he is one of the most talented and most well known free agents in wrestling, but the former TNA star has decided to reject their contract offer.

AAA also hopes that Guerrero can help recruit talent for them.
September 2, 2014
Batista
Due to his new found success in Hollywood, Batista is said to be holding all the cards when it comes to his career with WWE.

Rumors have surfaced that the former world heavyweight champion would only be interested in doing another match if it meant that he would receive a huge pay day at Wrestlemania 31.
August 31, 2014
Vince McMahon
While there are some concerns backstage about going up against the NFL, the move to Thursday for Smackdown is being viewed as a good thing for WWE. Vince McMahon and company been wanting to make the switch for quite some time now, as Friday nights are really difficult to draw because a lot of their targeted demographics is out of the house.
August 30, 2014
ODB
In regards to the release of ODB from TNA, reports are surfacing that the two sides are leaving on good terms. She was not released because of backstage heat or anything.

August 29, 2014
Daniel Bryan
Yesterday, it was revealed that WWE had pulled Daniel Bryan from the upcoming European tour in November.

August 29, 2014
Rey Mysterio
The relationship between WWE and Rey Mysterio might be worse than what a lot of us already thought. Reports have surfaced that the company and the popular masked performer are not communicating with one another nowadays.

Apparently, WWE is letting that issue slide for the time being, as lawyers have yet to get involved.

Those that watched Monday Night Raw last week saw John Cena being booked dominantly against Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan.

That's the speculation going around right now, as it has been revealed that the contract for the Wolves expire at the end of this year.

There are rumors floating around that a title change could be taking place in WWE NXT very soon. Bayley might be given the women's title during the middle part of September. Reports are floating around that Ashley Flair is on the verge of being given a promotion to the main roster in about a month, so she would need to drop the belt to someone else in developmental.
August 28, 2014
Curtis Axel
Since Ryback is on the shelf for a couple of weeks, it will be interesting to see what WWE does with Curtis Axel. There were already plans being discussed a couple of weeks ago to split up the tag team, so it should come as no surprise if management opted to use the injury as an excuse to accelerate those plans. WWE no longer believes that Axel is worthy of being a top level guy, but they do believe he can still be a useful member of the roster.
August 27, 2014
Wade Barrett
Patience isn't always a virtue in WWE. Wade Barrett was initially told by doctors that he would not be able to make his return to the ring until December. However, the company has a big tour of Europe in November. Since Barrett is viewed as a bit of a draw on that continent, WWE has started advertising his appearances. The belief is that Barrett will rush back from the injury to work those shows.
August 27, 2014
Big Show
After witnessing Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan being utilized as pawns in the feud between John Cena and Brock Lesnar on Monday Night Raw, a lot of fans voiced their complaints towards WWE.

Instead, WWE changed their minds and decided to put Cena and Lesnar over instead.
August 27, 2014
Big E Langston
A lot of fans are under the assumption that the stable consisting of Xavier Woods, Kofi Kingston and Big E Langston has been disbanded. It's hard to blame them for thinking that because WWE has removed them from television over the last couple of weeks. However, rumors are floating around that the trio has been informed by management that there are still plans in place for them to work as a group in the future. The creative department simply has not figured out a good way of using them.
August 27, 2014
Dean Ambrose
A Shield reunion could be taking place as soon as Night of Champions 2014. Unfortunately, though, the trio will not be on the same side. There are talks now that instead of doing a singles match between Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns, WWE could opt to go with a tag team match. Dean Ambrose would make his return and team up with Reigns against the team of Rollins and Kane.
August 26, 2014
Batista
Initially, the belief was that Batista would make a return to WWE after he was done promoting Guardians of the Galaxy. However, reports are now surfacing that he could be completely done with professional wrestling. The belief is that the movie studios are against the idea of him risking injuries by being an in ring performer again. Batista could have no choice but to comply since he wants his career in Hollywood to keep growing.
August 26, 2014
Dixie Carter
Reports have surfaced that the network currently interested in bringing TNA on board is Velocity. The channel is available in approximately 52 million households right now. Velocity is aimed at males between the ages of 25 and 54, which is beneficial to Dixie Carter and company because that is similar to the audience that Spike targets. No word yet on how far along the negotiations are at the moment.
August 25, 2014
Zack Ryder
There might be some backstage heat towards Zack Ryder. After working the live events this week for the company, he noted that he was flying back to New York. He also stated that he was not sick, which has led many fans to believe that this involves some sort of disciplinarian issues. WWE usually flies in performers for Monday Night Raw and Smackdown, even if they're not being utilized on television.
