January 14, 2014
Bray Wyatt
Rumors are floating around that WWE is going to be bringing in another member of the Wyatt Family to help Bray Wyatt regain some of the momentum that he has lost over the last couple of weeks. Word has it that the story line will consists of Erick Rowan and Luke Harper both being banned from ringside at Summerslam 2014. The new character would make their debut that night.
August 3, 2014
Ezekiel Jackson
A familiar face showed up on Impact Wrestling not too long ago. Ezekiel Jackson made his debut for TNA. However, it is simply a temporary stint for the big man. The belief is that Jackson signed on for a couple of appearances in order to increase his name value with independent wrestling promoters. It improves your chances of being signed when you are spotted on a nationally televised show.
August 1, 2014
Adam Rose
Things change pretty rapidly backstage in WWE, and that appears to be the case with the Adam Rose push. While he might still get his pay per view debut at Payback 2014 against Jack Swagger, there are those in management who feel that his television debut on Monday Night Raw was a flop. There are even rumors floating around that Rose could be sent back down to WWE NXT.
May 12, 2014
Adam Rose
It looks like Adam Rose is going to be leapfrogging other WWE stars this month, as the former developmental wrestler is penciled in for a match at Payback 2014. His pay per view debut is expected to be against Jack Swagger, whom he confronted during Monday Night Raw this past week. There are those backstage in WWE that feel that his character can get over with the live audience in Chicago.
May 10, 2014
Bret Hart
Smith Hart, the older brother of Bret Hart, had been promoting a show, where David Benoit, the son of Chris Benoit, was going to be making his official debut in professional wrestling. However, Chris Jericho decided to step in and prevent that from happening. The former WWE champion felt that Benoit was not trained enough, so he reportedly convince Chavo Guerrero to back out of the event as well.
May 8, 2014
Alexander Rusev
While management has not officially give him an extended feud to work with since his debut, Alexander Rusev is still being penciled in for a filler match at Extreme Rules 2014. He is expected to squash someone in a quick segment. Top candidates right now are Zack Ryder, R Truth and Xavier Woods, as those are the three WWE performers he has worked with lately.
April 18, 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. There have been no confirmation of his contract signing, but a lot of people backstage seem to be confident that it is a done deal between the two sides.
April 5, 2014
Alexander Rusev
With the announcement of the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal at Wrestlemania 30, WWE has now created an opportunity for them to give a big debut to Alexander Rusev, the latest developmental wrestler to make the jump to the main roster. His name has been mentioned as one of the top candidates to win the match at the pay per view.
March 12, 2014
Alexander Rusev
While he has been eager to make his return to the company, Evan Bourne does not appear to be much of a priority for WWE at this point. After Wrestlemania 30, the focus will be on pushing guys like Roman Reigns and Antonio Cesaro. Alexander Rusev is set to make his debut, so management will be focusing on him as well. Not a lot of room for Bourne in this scenario.
March 7, 2014
R Truth
While many are hoping that he eventually makes it to the main event level in WWE, there are those backstage that feel that his push needs to be drawn out, in order to prevent backlash from fans. Since management wants to go slow, there is a chance that they could feed him a low level baby face, such as Zack Ryder or R Truth, in his debut feud.
February 28, 2014
Alexander Rusev
While the company will continue to promote him in interview segments, WWE does not plan on doing the debut match for Alexander Rusev until after Wrestlemania 30. The belief is that management wants it to be a big deal, and right now, he would simply be overshadowed by the stories that they are building towards the big pay per view.
February 27, 2014
Chris Jericho
It has almost been a year now since he was given a big Wrestlemania win over Chris Jericho, and it seems that WWE has given up on Fandango becoming a big star. As of now, he is viewed as a mid card filler, who is receiving consistent television time because management wants to feature Summer Rae before her Total Divas debut.
February 19, 2014
Antonio Cesaro
WWE officials have high hopes in the upcoming match between Antonio Cesaro and Sami Zayn. The two of them are headlining the Arrival show, which is where WWE NXT will be making its debut on the WWE Network. Management is expected to give them plenty of time to work and are hoping that the match can draw in fans to their developmental program.
February 17, 2014
Santana Garrett
A couple of weeks ago, it was revealed that TNA had signed Santana Garrett, and fans of her work from the independent wrestling circuit were wondering when she would make her Impact Wrestling debut. It looks like she is currently finishing up some contractual obligations with Women Superstars Uncensored at the moment.
February 15, 2014
Dixie Carter
It appears that a contract between Dixie Carter and MVP has now been signed. The two sides had been on a handshake agreement when the latter made his TNA debut on Impact Wrestling last week. Both sides definitely wanted to work with one another, so it was just a matter of reaching an agreement on terms.
February 6, 2014
Sting

If WWE could finally put together a deal that will entice him to sign, Sting could possibly make his debut in the company by being the person to induct the Ultimate Warrior into the hall of fame during Wrestlemania 30 weekend. The two were tag team partners at the beginning of their careers.

February 4, 2014
Dixie Carter

There are still talks that MVP could be making his debut for TNA during the upcoming episode of Impact Wrestling, which is being filmed in Scotland. He continues to deny the rumors on Twitter by stating that he has not even had discussions with Dixie Carter, but many believe he is just trying to protect the surprise.

January 25, 2014
Davey Richards

Davey Richards and Eddie Edwards made their TNA debut on Impact Wrestling last week, and word coming from backstage is that each of them has been signed to a one year contract. The former ROH stars are expected to travel with the company for a tour of England soon.

January 20, 2014
Dixie Carter

Dixie Carter has been heavily pushing the fact that new performers are headed to Impact Wrestling this week, and almost all signs are pointing to it being Davey Richards and Eddie Edwards, the former ROH stars who recently had WWE tryouts.

January 15, 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
Curtis Axel
Reports are surfacing that WWE will be throwing a last minute fatal four way match together at Summerslam 2014, where Cody Rhodes, Goldust, Jimmy Uso, Jey Uso, Luke Harper, Erick Rowan, Curtis Axel and Ryback will all be vying for the tag titles. Management does not view this division to be a priority at this time, even though fan interest has grown.
August 7, 2014
Curtis Axel
Rumors are floating around that WWE is going to be splitting up Curtis Axel and Ryback very soon. Since neither guy has a ton of momentum right now, it does not appear that the move is being done to give them a push. WWE views Axel as just a guy on the roster nowadays, and Ryback has been in the doghouse with management for quite some time now.
July 23, 2014
Curtis Axel
As is usually the case with every pay per view, you can expect WWE to do last minute additions to the Extreme Rules 2014 match card. Jimmy Uso, Jey Uso, Curtis Axel and Ryback are expected to get the seventh match on the card. If WWE needs another filler match, then Emma, Santino Marella, Layla El and Fandango are the top candidates for that spot.
April 27, 2014
Curtis Axel
While it has yet to be officially confirmed, you can expect to see Curtis Axel and Ryback challenging Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso for the WWE tag team championship at Extreme Rules 2014. The seeds for the match was placed when the former Paul Heyman duo attacked the Usos after they defeated Cody Rhodes and Goldust on Monday Night Raw last week.
April 25, 2014
Curtis Axel
Since he has managed to behave himself rather well since being put into the dog house, there are talks that Ryback could be on the receiving end of a push from WWE in the near future. There are rumors that he and Curtis Axel could be going their separate ways soon, and it looks like Ryback will be the beneficiary of that breakup. He should be moved back into the mid card scene by the summer.
April 22, 2014
Curtis Axel
Rumor has it that there are several people backstage in WWE that are disappointed with how Antonio Cesaro is being utilized at Wrestlemania 30. Instead of being given a big singles match on the pay per view, he is working a kickoff match with Jack Swagger. It also features Jimmy Usu, Jey Uso, Fernando, Diego, Ryback and Curtis Axel.
April 4, 2014
Curtis Axel
While he has shown that he is not a main event level talent, Curtis Axel still has a good amount of job security within WWE, as management feels that he is a solid worker who shows up all the time. There are also those in the company that believe that he also has a job after he retires from in ring competition, either as an agent or as a trainer in WWE NXT.
March 10, 2014
Curtis Axel
While he will unlikely ever receive a big push again, Curtis Axel is being praised backstage in WWE because of the way that he has been handling his demotion. Management stuck him into a tag team with Ryback and has not given them much to work with, but Axel remains a professional who comes to work every day.
March 7, 2014
Curtis Axel
Once you get into that WWE dog house, it's pretty hard to get out. Management has sent more messages to Ryback this month. First, he and Curtis Axel are utilized as a filler tag team during the Elimination Chamber 2014 kickoff match. This week, the two of them are paired up with Jinder Mahal and Drew McIntyre in an eight man tag team match on WWE Superstars.
February 26, 2014
Curtis Axel
While it appears that a push was started for Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso on Monday Night Raw, the feeling backstage is that they are simply being utilized as filler, in order to help elevate Road Dogg and Billy Gunn. WWE did not even bother including their match against Curtis Axel and Ryback on the Hulu broadcast of Raw this week.
February 12, 2014
Curtis Axel

Aside from being utilized to help promote Brock Lesnar, who works a limited schedule, there does not appear to be much of a story line for Paul Heyman backstage. After being split apart from Curtis Axel and Ryback, management hasn't shown an interest in adding new guys for the former ECW owner to work with.

January 20, 2014
Curtis Axel

While management was not planning on giving him a big push or anything, there are some concerns that Curtis Axel is going to be held back by his tag team partner Ryback, who has secured himself a spot in the WWE dog house for a variety of reasons.

January 12, 2014
Curtis Axel

Curtis Axel will not be receiving a push in WWE any time soon. While management really likes him a lot, he simply was not able to capture the audience like they had hoped he would. The company still values him as a role player and wants him around.

January 11, 2014
Curtis Axel

Since the creative department doesn't have a story line for either guy, there are talks that Curtis Axel and Ryback could become a more permanent tag team in WWE.

December 7, 2013
Curtis Axel

While the two of them were together on Monday Night Raw this week, there are still talks within WWE of splitting Curtis Axel and Paul Heyman soon.

November 12, 2013
Curtis Axel
Despite dealing with a severe hip injury, Curtis Axel was backstage at the Smackdown television taping in Tampa yesterday.

October 27, 2013
Curtis Axel
Despite issues with Curtis Axel and Ryback, WWE is not expected to drop Paul Heyman from the roster anytime soon.
October 26, 2013
Bobby Lashley
Some interesting news coming out of TNA, as Bellator has now announced that Bobby Lashley will be making his MMA debut for their company in September. The current world heavyweight champion is scheduled to fight against veteran Josh Burns at the Mohegan Sun Arena. The belief is that Spike heavily pushed to make this happen as Bellator and TNA are two of their top performing brands.
July 16, 2014
Sting
In a really interesting move, WWE is looking to hire a body double for Sting, so that they can film some sort of stunt for the upcoming DVD about the legendary WCW star. While many fans are clamoring for Sting to finally make his debut in WWE, the belief is that the two sides have only come to an agreement on a contract to produce content and merchandise.
June 9, 2014
Brie Bella
While WWE was severely disappointed with the fact that the previous episode lost viewers, management is extremely pleased that Total Divas drew in big numbers. The season finale, which featured the much anticipated wedding of Daniel Bryan and Brie Bella, drew in more than 1.5 million viewers. The third season has already been renewed and will make its debut this upcoming fall.
June 3, 2014
Rosa Mendes
A picture of Rosa Mendes as a brunette again, as the longtime WWE diva is preparing to make her debut on the third season of Total Divas.
May 24, 2014
Bram
It looks like TNA is investing heavily into Bram, a new character who recently made his debut as a childhood friend of former world heavyweight champion Brutus Magnus. Even though he has yet to make a name for himself in the industry, Bram has been given a multiple year contract by TNA. While it may not be for a large sum of money, the commitment is quite telling.
May 9, 2014
John Cena
Wizard World is making its debut in San Antonio later this year, and the promoters have wisely secured one of the biggest names in WWE for the event. In August, John Cena will be heading down to Texas to make an appearance at the comic convention. The former world heavyweight champion has been scheduled to sign autographs and take pictures with fans for approximately four hours.
May 7, 2014

May 2, 2014
Jeff Hardy
"Willow was my bad guy identity when Matt Hardy and I were running the OMEGA shows. I would be Jeff Hardy as the good guy and Willow would be the bad guy wrestling Matt across the indie circuit. It was an alter-ego back then, and now I had a chance to bring it back in TNA. I'm glad they gave me the chance to do it because it means the world to me to see how cool the promos have turned out and the vignettes leading up to the debut, and the entrance. The in-ring matches are still a work in progress for me, but it's fun to be that extension of myself, especially now at 36 years old on national TV." - Jeff Hardy discusses his new character on Impact Wrestling
April 26, 2014
Chris Jericho
With so many of his peers, including JBL, Michael Cole, Jim Ross, Chris Jericho and Steve Austin, finding success doing shows online, Taz is following suit. The TNA commentator announced that he was going to debut his own online radio show soon. The format will basically be the former world heavyweight champion talking about the daily topics in professional wrestling.
April 22, 2014
Sting
In a rather peculiar move, WWE instructed the security personnel at Monday Night Raw to remove any signs that involves Sting. Rumors have spread this week that the legendary performer was close to signing a deal to finally join WWE. The belief is that management wants to ensure that his arrival is a surprise, even though most fans online have already heard about the possibility of his debut.
April 15, 2014
Sting
A buzz was created in the world of professional wrestling earlier tonight when Sting made his official debut on the WWE Network. The former world heavyweight did an interview segment, where he talked about his former tag team partner, the Ultimate Warrior. Sting revealed that Warrior used to blend tuna and orange juice into a drink.
April 15, 2014
Alexander Rusev
In a rather interesting move, Alexander Rusev has been removed from the Hulu broadcast of Monday Night Raw for the second week in a row. His debut match against Zack Ryder was omitted the previous week. He defeated Xavier Woods this week and assaulted R Truth afterwards. Apparently, WWE did not feel that was important enough to include on the Hulu version.
April 15, 2014
Alexander Rusev
A video from WWE Main Event of a match between Alexander Rusev, who made his in ring debut on Monday Night Raw this week against Zack Ryder, and Sin Cara.

April 11, 2014
AJ Lee
Even though she made her debut on Monday Night Raw and captured the WWE Divas Championship from AJ Lee in a shocking manner, Paige will not be traveling with the main roster this upcoming weekend. Instead, she will be working WWE NXT shows in Florida, where she is expected to finish up and possibly drop the developmental title to another diva.
April 10, 2014
Alexander Rusev
Despite the company being very high on the guy, Alexander Rusev had his debut match removed from the Hulu broadcast of Monday Night Raw this week. He defeated Zack Ryder in a squash match, but WWE officials deemed it not important enough to show their fans on Hulu. This leads to a lot of questions about how strong of a push Rusev will receive.
April 8, 2014
AJ Lee
A video of Paige making her debut on Monday Night Raw and winning the WWE Divas Championship from AJ Lee. Initially, the developmental diva was just out there to congratulate the champion, but AJ decided to challenge Paige and put the title belt on the line.
April 8, 2014
Sting
In a move that could signal his imminent debut in WWE, Sting has been removed from the official TNA roster page on their website. The company had kept him on there, even after he made his last appearance for the company in January. The belief is that he has been negotiating with WWE over the past several weeks, and this could signal that a deal has been reached.
April 7, 2014
Alexander Rusev
According to online betting websites, Alexander Rusev is the heavy favorite to win the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal at Wrestlemania 30. WWE officials have been trying to think of a way to make his debut strong, and this could be how they kick start his push. Expect him to be featured on Monday Night Raw, where he might finally have a match.
April 6, 2014
Tigre Uno
Ever since his debut with TNA, fans have been searching for information on the mysterious Tigre Uno. Since he is a masked wrestler, people have obviously been trying to uncover his true identity by looking for unmasked images of him online. Thus far, none have been found. That does not come as a surprise, as even his real name remains a mystery at this point.
April 4, 2014
Big Show
Since management wasn't completely sure what to do with them upon their returns, WWE has seemingly decided to put Big Show and Mark Henry into a tag team. The duo demolished Curtis Axel and Ryback on Smackdown. The belief is that Show and Henry could be placed into a big tag team match on a pay per view against Luke Harper and Erick Rowan.
August 11, 2014
Ryback
On Monday Night Raw this week, Xavier Woods, who is only used sporadically on television by WWE, made a surprising appearance after a tag team match featuring Curtis Axel, Ryback, Kofi Kingston and Big E Langston. He cut a quick promo about how Kingston and Langston cannot get very far in WWE by being nice guys. This is the start of the long rumored stable, which has already been compared to the Nation of Domination by fans online.
July 22, 2014
Damien Sandow
Some more names have been added to the upcoming WWE Intercontinental Championship battle royal. Big E, Curtis Axel, Dolph Ziggler, Rob Van Dam and Ryback are now in the match at WWE Battleground 2014. They join Kofi Kingston, Damien Sandow, Great Khali and Antonio Cesaro. As of right now, the company is favoring the idea of giving the title to Cesaro.
July 2, 2014
Goldust
In a match that was slightly held in higher regards than a filler match, Goldust and Cody Rhodes, who worked under his Stardust gimmick again, defeated Curtis Axel, who was sporting a ridiculous looking singlet, and Ryback. The match was designed to highlight the Stardust character. Since there was a little bit of action after the match, there is a chance that WWE could be continuing this feud.
June 29, 2014
Curtis Axel
In a rather interesting move, Curtis Axel worked as a baby face during a live event in Pennsylvania over the weekend. It was during a match against Alexander Rusev, where Axel explained to the audience that while they may not like him, they have something in common because they all love America. Rumors have it that this was simply a one time thing because they needed someone to work against Rusev that evening. Axel is not expected to do a full face turn anytime soon.
June 16, 2014
Goldust
In a match designed by WWE to accelerate the split between the brothers, Curtis Axel and Ryback defeated Cody Rhodes and Goldust in the second match of Payback 2014. Ryback picked up the pin fall victory for his team after delivering the Shell Shock to Rhodes. Afterwards, Rhodes told Goldust that he needs to find a better tag team partner for himself.
June 1, 2014
Curtis Axel
A rather interesting move took place on Monday Night Raw, as Sheamus captured the WWE United States Heavyweight Championship by winning a battle royal. The move was designed to take the belt off of Dean Ambrose, which would increase the friction between the Shield and Triple H. Final five guys in the ring were Ambrose, Sheamus, Jack Swagger, Curtis Axel and Ryback.
May 5, 2014
Curtis Axel
Earlier in the week, it was reported that Curtis Axel and Ryback would be receiving a shot at Jimmy Uso, Jey Uso and the WWE Tag Team Championship at Extreme Rules 2014, management has decided to put the match on the next episode of Monday Night Raw instead. A rematch at the pay per view is a possibility still.
April 27, 2014
Randy Orton
With the X-Men star making a return appearance next week, WWE has been hinting that Hugh Jackman is going to be knocking out one of the wrestlers. The company set up a poll to see which performer the fans wanted to see in the roll. Damien Sandow, JBL, Wade Barrett, Randy Orton, Batista, Ryback, Curtis Axel, Zeb Colter, Fandango and Jack Swagger were all included, but Triple H and Paul Heyman are currently in the lead.
April 25, 2014
Ryback
Despite working a segment that is building towards a feud for the tag team championship, Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso were removed from the Hulu version of Monday Night Raw this week. The brother tandem defeated Cody Rhodes and Goldust before setting up their program with Curtis Axel and Ryback. WWE still intends to continue the story line.
April 23, 2014
Drew McIntyre
For fans who take interest in the traveling schedules of professional wrestlers, it has been revealed that Heath Slater is now traveling with Curtis Axel in between live events.

Diego
In an action filled Wrestlemania 30 kickoff match, Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso retained the WWE tag team championship by defeating Diego, Fernando, Curtis Axel, Ryback, Jack Swagger and Antonio Cesaro in a fatal four way elimination tag team bout. Afterwards, Cesaro did a face turn after Swagger attempted to attack him for being pinned.
April 6, 2014
Jack Swagger
Initially, the belief was that the tag team championships were going to be given some spotlight by WWE at their biggest pay per view of the year, but it has now been announced that Ryback, Curtis Axel, Fernando, Diego, Antonio Cesaro, Jack Swagger, Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso are being moved to the Wrestlemania 30 kickoff match spot.
April 1, 2014
Ryback
After changing their minds several times over the last couple of months, the decision has been made to put the WWE Tag Team Championship in a match at Wrestlemania 30 after all. Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso will be defending the belts against Jack Swagger, Antonio Cesaro, Curtis Axel and Ryback in a triple threat match.
March 25, 2014

Curt Hennig
A couple of months ago, a Twitter feud erupted between Konnan and Curtis Axel, when the former gave some constructive criticism to the latter. Well, it looks like things have not gone away, as the former WWE Intercontinental Champion has decided to take yet another jab at Konnan with this message involving his father Curt Hennig.
March 2, 2014
Cody Rhodes
While many were under the impression that Cody Rhodes was being left off of the Elimination Chamber 2014 main card because of his knee injury, apparently, he is healthy enough to work, as WWE has placed him into the kickoff match. He will be teaming with Goldust in a tag team match against Ryback and Curtis Axel.
February 19, 2014
Bully Ray
When his contract was expiring, a lot of fans wondered what TNA would do with Bully Ray and his stories since he was leaving the company. The two sides have reached an agreement to continue working together, so that the stories can be resolved. Bully Ray will also work the Bound For Glory 2014 event and be inducted into the TNA Hall of Fame before parting ways.
September 15, 2014
Triple H
Professional wrestling and football have long had a connection, as a lot of players from the gridiron have successfully made the switch to the squared circle. Triple H wants that tradition to continue, so WWE is now targeting more football players to join their developmental program. While there are a couple of guys already on the roster with athletic backgrounds, the company is looking for guys with more name value. WWE is also willing to pay these guys more money than the wrestlers.
September 15, 2014
Bully Ray
Rumors are spreading rapidly right now that Bully Ray has signed a new contract with TNA. The speculation stems from the fact that the company is now openly advertising him for Bound For Glory 2014. His contract expired not too long ago, and at the time, the belief was that the two sides were not able to come to an agreement on a new deal because TNA was still waiting for a television contract. There is also a chance that Bully Ray could just be doing a one time thing for the company.
September 13, 2014
Damien Sandow
If you watched WWE NXT Takeover last night, you know that Tyler Breeze failed to win the heavyweight championship. However, management might have something better for him. Reports have surfaced that Breeze is on the verge of being given a promotion to the main roster, where the cocky character will be joining the entourage of the Miz, which already features Damien Sandow.
September 12, 2014
Vince McMahon
Some rumors floated around this week that WWE was looking to sell their entire tape library to Warner Bros. That caused a lot of gullible fans to believe that Vince McMahon was giving up on the WWE Network. Rumors are false, as the article was filled with quite a bit of inaccuracies, including the statement that Cinadigm was the actual owner of the footage.
September 12, 2014
Brock Lesnar
Over the last couple of weeks, there has been a bit of a struggle backstage in WWE. On one side is Vince McMahon, who wants John Cena to be booked as dominant as possible, so that fans will buy into his upcoming rematch against Brock Lesnar at Night of Champions 2014. On the other side is everyone else, who does not believe that Cena should be dominating the other performers on the roster that much.
September 12, 2014
Dixie Carter
Dixie Carter has remained steadfast in TNA being able to keep Impact Wrestling on television. While a deal with Spike is now unlikely, the company has received interest from Velocity and WGN. The latest reports are saying that there are two other networks, which are currently unnamed at this time, interested. One of the networks is said to even be stronger than Spike.
September 11, 2014
Adam Rose
Since the bunny that accompanies Adam Rose has been featured more frequently on television as of late, fans have been speculating that WWE will eventually have him work a match. It looks like that might happen sooner than later. There are talks that Rose and the bunny could be teaming up to battle Heath Slater and Titus ONeil during the kickoff match at Night of Champions 2014.
September 11, 2014
Bray Wyatt
When he was feuding with John Cena, Bray Wyatt appeared to be a lock to remain in the WWE main event scene for quite some time. When that feud ended, he was able to maintain some momentum when Chris Jericho made his return to the company and feuded with Wyatt. Since there is a lack of top level talent in WWE, there are now talks that management could have Wyatt feuding with Dolph Ziggler over the Intercontinental Championship, even though it seems out of the norm for his character to chase a secondary belt.
September 10, 2014
Christian
For those of you that have been wondering about his whereabouts, Christian is definitely still with WWE. In fact, he has reportedly been medically cleared to make a return for quite some time now. However, management is simply choosing not to utilize him at this point. The creative department has not bothered to write a story for him. Some believe that Christian may never make a return as a wrestler in WWE at this point.
September 10, 2014
Michael Elgin
There has been a ton of speculations on the situation between Michael Elgin and ROH. The former heavyweight champion apparently is stuck in Canada and cannot return to the United States because of issues with his work visa. New reports have surfaced that ROH management places the blame squarely on Elgin for being unorganized. For those that do not know, he abruptly dropped the heavyweight championship under mysterious conditions.
September 10, 2014
Sean OHaire
With news spreading that Sean OHaire has passed away, there have been a ton of speculations as to the details of his death. One of the rumors circulating right now is that the former WWE star was battling a severe case of depression. The belief is that he was having a hard time since he had failed careers in professional wrestling, MMA and boxing. Still no official word yet on the cause of his death.

Michael Elgin
Rumors surfaced over the weekend that Michael Elgin had backstage heat on him from management over comments that he made about wanting to take a break from ROH and trying out for professional baseball in the near future. Reports have surfaced that those rumors are false because management is actually upset with him for doing the job to Trevor Lee at a PWG show. ROH rightfully does not believe that their world heavyweight champion should be putting people in other companies over.

Adam Rose
One of the growing points of emphasis on Monday Night Raw lately has become the bunny that accompanies Adam Rose to ringside. A lot of WWE fans are wondering who is the person behind the suit. Many of the guesses have been based upon the movies that the bunny does. However, management is simply throwing off the fans with moves like the super kick. Right now, the strongest candidate to be revealed under the suit is Darren Young, who should be returning from a serious leg injury soon.

He stated that ROH was quite supportive of his decision.
