Since they really are best friends in real life, Trish Stratus and Lita have decided to capitalize on that relationship by doing a tour together.

Rob Van Dam
While he is not quite a full time performer for the company, Rob Van Dam has opted to head to Europe with WWE for a tour in May. There will be an episode of Monday Night Raw and Smackdown taped in London during this stretch, so most of the performers in WWE will be on hand for the tour. Rumors have it that RVD will be sticking around for a couple of months like last time.

Brian Kendrick
Earlier today, it was reported that Paul London was heading to Europe for a tour, and it has now been revealed that Brian Kendrick is joining him.

Jay Lethal
In a rather interesting story that made the news, Jay Lethal and Sonjay Dutt were at a grocery store in England, where they are working a tour, when they were spotted by a wrestling fan named Phill Maher. He invited the former TNA stars to his house to have tea, and surprisingly enough, both of them agreed to do so.
March 22, 2014
Brie Bella
Since he lives a fairly simple life, Daniel Bryan has long refused to get a tour bus like the other top WWE stars. However, with quite a bit of convincing from Brie Bella, the diva whom he is set to marry next month, Bryan has changed his mind and will be acquiring one on the next episode of Total Divas. Expect scenes to be filmed on the bus throughout the season.
March 19, 2014

After being absent for quite a few weeks, the Great Khali has made his return to WWE, joining the live events tour this weekend.

The former world heavyweight champion has not worked a televised match since the first Monday Night Raw of the year.
March 17, 2014
Sonjay Dutt
While a lot of people would love to see him back on Impact Wrestling, it appears that Sonjay Dutt has been doing rather well for himself on the independent wrestling circuit.

March 11, 2014

March 10, 2014
Shelton Benjamin
A couple of weeks ago, Shelton Benjamin revealed to fans on Twitter that he was a fast healer. Well, he was not kidding. Benjamin has just announced that he is heading back overseas to do a tour for New Japan. He is leaving the United States some time next week. The former WWE star had surgery back in January for an injured elbow.
March 5, 2014
Jeff Hardy
After taking a much needed break to heal up his body, Shannon Moore has now started training again, and he has stated that he would like to make a come back to professional wrestling. His good friends Jeff Hardy, Matt Hardy and Shane Helms recently drew in a packed house at an independent wrestling show, so a group tour could be an option.
February 28, 2014
Great Muta
Considering how much of a powerful figure the Great Muta is in Japan, it's not a bad idea to get in on his good side if you want to make a name for yourself in that country. Rob Terry has apparently been able to do just that, as he has now been given the honors of teaming up with the former WCW star during the first series of Wrestle-1 tour.
February 28, 2014

He has also publicly stated that he would like to be back on television for TNA as well.
February 25, 2014
Big Show
Even though he was not booked for Elimination Chamber 2014, Big Show is still very much in contention for a coveted match at Wrestlemania 30. Right now, WWE simply had nothing for him from the creative department. Plus, he replaced the Great Khali on an overseas promotional tour of India. He should be back on television soon.
February 24, 2014
Big Show
Some eyes backstage have been on the Great Khali, as management has not been utilizing him as much lately. He has only worked two televised matches, a win over Damien Sandow on Monday Night Raw and a brief appearance at Royal Rumble 2014. WWE also sent Big Show to India for a promotional tour instead of him recently as well.
February 22, 2014
Dixie Carter

February 20, 2014
Mick Foley
Jenifer Bloodsworth used to be a writer for WWE, but she is now doing stand up comedy. Fortunately for her, she has a good friend with name value in Mick Foley.

February 19, 2014
Samoa Joe
Reports recently spread that Samoa Joe gave a huge speech to the other TNA performers on the tour bus while the company was in England. The speech was said to have incited a loud applause from his coworkers. Joe, however, issued this statement on Twitter to deny the rumors.
February 19, 2014
Fandango
At a live event in Texas over the weekend, Darren Young might have suffered some sort of injury. His match with Fandango was extremely short, and the ending was awkward, as Young was counted out after delivering a flying ax handle. Agents came out to the ringside area to check on Young and helped him limp backstage.
April 13, 2014
Darren Young
With Darren Young coming out earlier in the year, the belief was that he was going to be a big part of the marketing campaign during Wrestlemania 30 weekend, but WWE opted against it. While Young did still play a role for the company this week, his sexuality was downplayed and kept in the background. It does not seem like WWE will be going that route any more.
April 8, 2014
Great Khali
WWE has announced that the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal will consists of Alberto Del Rio, Big E Langston, Big Show, Brodus Clay, Christian, Cody Rhodes, Damien Sandow, Darren Young, Dolph Ziggler, Drew McIntyre, Fandango, Goldust, Great Khali, Heath Slater, Jinder Mahal, Justin Gabriel, Kofi Kingston, Mark Henry, Miz, R Truth, Rey Mysterio, Santino Marella, Sheamus, Sin Cara, Titus ONeil and Zack Ryder.

March 25, 2014
Darren Young
The latest rumors on Titus ONeil is that there is backstage heat on him within WWE, as management has been booking him in multiple losses at live events.

In the third match, he teams up with Wade Barrett to lose to both Young and Henry.
March 23, 2014
Brie Bella
Since Wrestlemania is right around the corner, WWE has decided to tape a commercial in New Orleans to promote the pay per view. Fandango, Summer Rae, Kofi Kingston, Sheamus, Big Show, Nikki Bella and Brie Bella are all in town for the shoot. There are also reports that Darren Young might be a part of the cast as well, but that is unconfirmed.
March 22, 2014
Titus ONeil
While management has halted his push because of a poor reaction from the audience at Elimination Chamber 2014, there is still a chance that Darren Young will be working the Wrestlemania 30 show. He and his former teammate Titus ONeil are both candidates to be entrants in the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal that weekend.
March 16, 2014
Titus ONeil
Since management was disappointed at the crowd reaction that was received during the match between Darren Young and Titus ONeil at Elimination Chamber 2014, the former Prime Time Players are being scaled back a bit, and their respective pushes are being placed on hold. Their feud has not being featured on Monday Night Raw or Smackdown since the pay per view.
March 9, 2014
Darren Young
In a grudge match between the Prime Time Players, Titus ONeil defeated Darren Young at Elimination Chamber 2014.
February 23, 2014
Darren Young
WWE has issued a press release, informing the world that Darren Young will be participating in GaymerX this year. It is an event held in San Francisco, where gay and lesbian video game enthusiasts get together. Management views this as a great public relations move, which means that Young will continue to have some job security within the company.

February 20, 2014
Titus ONeil
In case you missed the announcement on Monday Night Raw this week, Darren Young and Titus ONeil will be having their grudge match on the main Elimination Chamber 2014 pay per view next Sunday night. Many were under the belief that it was going to be the kickoff match, but management decided to step things up a bit.
February 19, 2014
Darren Young
Since he did receive a lot of media attention when he decided to reveal to the world that he was gay, Darren Young has been criticized for doing it for the wrong reasons. He defended himself on Twitter by stating that he told TMZ his story because he wants the respect from staying true and living an honest life. He denies that it was done for marketing.
February 10, 2014
Wade Barrett
Fans have been wondering when Wade Barrett was going to be wrestling again, as he has only been doing the Bad News Barrett segments on Monday Night Raw and Smackdown. It looks like that might be happening soon, as the former Nexus leader was given a match against Darren Young at a WWE live event in Oakland this weekend.
February 8, 2014
Titus ONeil
While many are under the assumption that Titus ONeil is the one that will be receiving the push since he was the one that pulled the heel turn, the rumors of Darren Young being pushed is gaining some steam, as the latter was given the victory over the former at a live event in Oakland. At this point, the match appears unlikely to make it on the Elimination Chamber 2014 main card.
February 8, 2014
Titus ONeil
There has been some back and forth backstage recently over the push that Titus ONeil is set to receive. Some feel that management will not be giving him a huge one, so there are plenty of people keeping an eye on WWE to see if they will give he and Darren Young a coveted spot at Elimination Chamber 2014, which would mean that the company is serious about elevating ONeil.
February 7, 2014
Darren Young

In preparations of an upcoming feud against his former Prime Time Player teammate and real life good friend, Darren Young has gone with a shorter haircut. While many are expecting Titus ONeil to be on the receiving end of the push, WWE may be elevating both performers.

February 3, 2014
Darren Young

Darren Young received quite a bit of media attention in 2013 when he revealed that he was gay, marking the first time a WWE star has done that. He even made an appearance on Ellen to discuss the situation. By doing that, he has been nominated for a GLAAD award. 

January 30, 2014
Ryback

A shocking heel turn took place in WWE at the Smackdown taping tonight. Titus ONeil turned on his Prime Time Player teammate Darren Young during a match against Curtis Axel and Ryback. ONeil turned heel and vicious assaulted Young after proclaiming that he was tired of losing all the time.

Darren Young

"If you're good at your job, I don't judge. Darren Young is really good at his job, he's a wonderful performer, he's a great entertainer and it's a very, very bold move that he made to come out. So he certainly is very a brave individual for doing that... He can be himself and nobody judges him around here."
