The two of them could be facing one another at Extreme Rules 2014.
April 22, 2014

Initial plans for this past Monday Night Raw did not include a tournament to crown a new contender for the WWE Intercontinental Championship.

April 17, 2014
Alberto Del Rio

April 11, 2014
Brock Lesnar
While the audience was quite jovial towards him during Monday Night Raw, there are no plans in place for WWE to do a face turn for Brock Lesnar, as the company feels that he is much more of a draw as a dominant heel. The fans were basically cheering for the tremendous promo that Paul Heyman was cutting about the end of the Undertaker streak.
April 10, 2014
Sting
Even though he did not show up at Wrestlemania 30 or the following Monday Night Raw, things between Sting and WWE are not over and done with.

April 8, 2014
Damien Sandow
On Monday Night Raw this week, rumors about Rob Van Dam making his return to WWE turned out to be true. He came back and defeated Damien Sandow in a quick squash.

April 8, 2014
Rob Van Dam
Since rumors leaked that he was going to be returning during the Wrestlemania 30 battle royal, WWE opted to pull Rob Van Dam from the event.

April 7, 2014
Sting
There are rumors going around right now that WWE could air a promotional video for Sting at Wrestlemania 30, so that fans will tune into Monday Night Raw to see his debut.

April 5, 2014
Emma
While some are under the impression that WWE could be dropping the Emma story line because it was not featured on Monday Night Raw, the company still has plans on pushing her.

April 4, 2014
Brock Lesnar
There are those backstage in WWE that feel that the booking for Brock Lesnar and Undertaker was not done properly over the last few weeks, as the former UFC champion has not been made to look like much of a threat to end the streak at Wrestlemania 30.

April 2, 2014
Undertaker
Rather than saving him towards the end of the show, WWE opted to have the Undertaker do the opening segment of Monday Night Raw this week.

April 1, 2014
AJ Lee
The hot rumor going around professional wrestling right now is that AJ Lee and CM Punk are now engaged.

It is being said that a lot of people within the company found it to be quite humorous that he tore his pants on Monday Night Raw this week.
March 27, 2014
Daniel Bryan
While he recently took some time off, WWE has allowed Daniel Bryan to spend further time away from the ring.

April 23, 2014
Alexander Rusev
Even though the company is hoping to push him as a huge star, WWE has been frequently removing Alexander Rusev from the Hulu version of Monday Night Raw. He has been utilized in squash matches over the last couple of weeks, and WWE does not deem that to be interesting enough to fans who watch the shortened version of Raw.
April 23, 2014
Daniel Bryan
Hours before he was set to return to Monday Night Raw, Daniel Bryan received some awful news. His father has passed away suddenly. However, rather than taking off immediately to mourn the death, Bryan admirably insisted that WWE allow him to work the show tonight, in order to preserve the plans that were already in place. He might skip out on Smackdown to go be with his family.
April 21, 2014
Eva Marie

April 19, 2014
Eric Young
Rumors have it that another reason why TNA gave the world heavyweight championship to Eric Young was to keep him from joining Jeff Jarrett in Global Force Wrestling.
