Daniel Bryan
Yesterday, it was revealed that WWE had pulled Daniel Bryan from the upcoming European tour in November. The former world heavyweight champion was scheduled to make appearances at the live events on that continent. Reports are now surfacing that management made the decision to pull him from the tour because Bryan has received confirmation from doctors that a second surgery is needed to repair his neck injury.
August 29, 2014
Konnan
As many are already aware, Konnan has been having issues with his hips over the last couple of years. It's the reason why he has been forced to stay away from the ring. The former WCW star revealed that he wants one final match after his next surgery. Since he is involved with AAA, the belief is that his match will be held for that promotion. No word yet on who he wants as his final opponent.
August 18, 2014
Shelton Benjamin
Another speed bump has presented itself in the career of Shelton Benjamin. The former Intercontinental Champion has suffered a serious knee injury while working in Japan. He is expected to miss a couple of months of action because of the surgery. Benjamin was sidelined earlier in the year when he had surgery on his elbow, but he recovered much quicker than expected from that injury.
August 17, 2014
Santino Marella
It looks like Santino Marella isn't quite ready to give up on his in ring career just yet. The former Intercontinental Champion stated that he will be undergoing surgery to repair his neck. Marella also stated that he is going to make a comeback attempt after spending a couple of months in recovery. He did not mention WWE specifically, but the belief is that the company has left the door open for him.
August 14, 2014
Brie Bella
In order to help promote her upcoming match at Summerslam 2014 against Stephanie McMahon, Brie Bella is on the road this weekend for WWE. The company is sending her and Nikki Bella to the Wizard World event in San Antonio. Brie is still on a reduced schedule, as management wants to give her time to be with Daniel Bryan while he is still recovering from his neck surgery.
August 2, 2014
Daniel Bryan
With his health being quite the uncertainty at this point in time, there are all sorts of rumors floating around about the return of Daniel Bryan. The latest one has the former WWE champion coming back at Royal Rumble 2015. Much of that is speculation, though, since Bryan needs to go in for another surgery, and there's no telling how his body will react to the procedure.
August 2, 2014
Daniel Bryan
Initially, Daniel Bryan had surgery to repair a seriously damaged neck. However, doctors found further issues for the former WWE champion recently. His shoulders are pretty messed up as well. Additional procedures could be required to repair all of the damage to his body. Bryan is out indefinitely, and there is no timetable backstage for his return.
July 10, 2014
Daniel Bryan
Some rumors have surfaced that Daniel Bryan is returning to WWE soon, and the cause of the confusion is over the fact that he was spotted in the ring with his wrestling gear on last night. The former world heavyweight champion was simply filming a public service announcement. Even though he informed the fans in the arena that he might still need another surgery to repair his damaged neck, some were still under the belief that he was coming back soon.
July 2, 2014
Jack Swagger
Thanks to an errant throw into the guard rail by Jack Swagger, Wade Barrett has underwent ligament reconstruction surgery. WWE is reporting that the operation went well and that Barrett is at home resting now. No official word yet on how long he will be gone, but rumors are floating that it will be for several months, which is why WWE stripped him of the Intercontinental Championship on Monday Night Raw this week.
July 2, 2014
Daniel Bryan
While there is still a chance that he was working the audience during his speech at Money in the Bank 2014, the topic of Daniel Bryan require a second surgery to repair his neck is a major issue for WWE. Reports are surfacing that if it is true that he needs to go under the knife again, there is a very good chance that Bryan could miss up to a year of action.
June 30, 2014
Scott Hall
A lot of rumors have been floating around as of late in regards to the condition that Scott Hall has been in at conventions and independent wrestling shows. Promoters and fans have been accusing the former WWE star of being in really bad shape, which has led to speculations that he might be losing his battle against sobriety. Sean Waltman, however, has been telling people that Hall is under heavy medication because of recurring pain from his hip surgery.
June 26, 2014
Daniel Bryan
In a rather interesting bit of news, reports are surfacing that the audience at Monday Night Raw did not react much when WWE announced that Daniel Bryan would be making an appearance at Money in the Bank 2014. That comes as a surprise because he was really one of the most popular guys in the industry before he left to have surgery on his injured neck. It should be interesting to see how fans react to him at the pay per view itself.
June 24, 2014
Rock
Not too long ago, Rock revealed to the world that his cousin Tamina Snuka was one of the hardest working and most determined people he knows. He noted that she was a single mother of two, who went from being a janitor to being a WWE star. Her determination is showing yet again because Tamina is recovering much quicker than expected from her knee surgery, which was expected to keep her out of action until the end of the year.
June 15, 2014
Tamina Snuka
If you're a big fan of Tamina Snuka, get used to not seeing her on television for the rest of the year. The WWE diva just had knee surgery to repair a torn ACL, and she is expected to be sidelined for the next six months. No word yet on when the injury actually occurred, but her last televised match was on the final episode of Smackdown in May.
June 7, 2014
Daniel Bryan
Some disturbing news is coming out of WWE. Word going around is that Daniel Bryan has been losing strength in his arm. The world heavyweight champion has been trying to rehabilitate after having much needed neck surgery, but things are not progressing as well as WWE had hoped. There is a very good chance that he will be missing more time than initially expected.
June 5, 2014
Adrian Neville
During the latest WWE NXT show, an interesting injury was revealed. Adrian Neville had four teeth knocked out of his mouth during a backstage segment with Brodus Clay, who has been down in developmental for several months now. Neville had dental surgery to repair the teeth and now wears a mouth guard during matches to prevent further damage.
May 31, 2014
Chris Benoit
One of the more recognizable moves in WWE right now is the Daniel Bryan flying headbutt. It has become a big part of his repertoire. After his latest surgery, management is trying to convince Bryan to drop the move, as it has the potential to make his situation even worse than it is now. Some are citing the damage that it caused to Chris Benoit, who used that move routinely.
May 23, 2014
Daniel Bryan
WWE is wrapping up their tour of Europe and the performers will be heading back to the United States. The next episode of Monday Night Raw is taking place in Tennessee, and Daniel Bryan, who recently had neck surgery, is being advertised to make an appearance. This could be a swerve by Stephanie McMahon to further sell the story line between the two.
May 21, 2014
Daniel Bryan
Some good news coming out of WWE today, as it is being reported that Daniel Bryan underwent successful surgery to repair his neck injury. The procedure, which took place in Pittsburgh, went well enough to where doctors are stating that he could be released from the hospital within two days. As of right now, the guess is that he will need approximately three months of recovery time before returning to WWE.
May 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
Mark Henry
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
Jey Uso
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
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
Ryback
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
Curtis Axel
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
Alexander Rusev
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
Ryback
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
Ryback
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
Ryback
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
Fandango
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
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
Goldust
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
Jimmy Uso
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
Jinder Mahal
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. Many were under the assumption that Slater was traveling with Jinder Mahal and Drew McIntyre, while Axel was believed to have been on the road with Ryback.
April 23, 2014
Ryback
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

Jey Uso
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
Bray Wyatt
During the Smackdown taping, it was announced that there would be a big Elimination Chamber 2014 rematch on Monday Night Raw featuring Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan taking on Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose. The belief is that this is being done to further the friction between Ambrose and Reigns.
February 26, 2014
Batista
During the Smackdown taping, Batista opened up the show and addressed the audience. Dolph Ziggler came out and issued a challenge. Batista laughs at him, so Ziggler gives him a drop kick. The match itself, was set for later in the show, was a quick squash. It should be noted that Batista played the heel role throughout the match.
February 26, 2014
Antonio Cesaro
In order to build up his credibility for the Elimination Chamber 2014 main event, WWE pulled the trigger on a big moment for Antonio Cesaro at the Smackdown taping on Tuesday. In the main event of the episode, he cleanly defeated and pinned Randy Orton, the heavyweight champion.
February 12, 2014
Big E Langston
In a rather interesting move during the Smackdown taping, WWE did a number one contender's match to determine a new challenger for Big E Langston and the Intercontinental Championship. Rey Mysterio, Mark Henry and Kofi Kingston were involved, but Jack Swagger was the one that ended up winning the match.
February 12, 2014
Alpha Female

January 30, 2014
Bray Wyatt

Since the start, Bray Wyatt has done all of the talking to the Wyatt Family. Luke Harper and Erick Rowan generally just stand to the side and in the background during the interview segments. On Smackdown this week, though, Harper actually says a few words.

January 28, 2014
Antonio Cesaro
