Road Dogg
Since the company has been releasing people left and right due to the budget cuts, there is some understandable paranoia backstage in WWE nowadays. Recently, people were under the impression that Road Dogg had been released because he was not around for a couple of the television taping. However, it turned out to be a false alarm, as the former Intercontinental Champion was simply on vacation.

Vickie Guerrero
Anyone that follows professional wrestling closely, knows that WWE performers spend a ridiculous amount of time on the road for the company. Vickie Guerrero became one of the latest people to grow weary of that lifestyle and requested her release from her contract. Now that she is free of that hectic obligation, the former WWE diva is now on vacation in Hawaii.

Rey Mysterio
For those of you wondering about the status of Rey Mysterio in WWE, the masked performer is still taking time off. He was recently spotted on vacation in Mexico after spending time with his family in Hawaii. Despite his long history of injuries, Vince McMahon still wants Mysterio back, and he even activated a clause in his contract that immediately extended the deal. Mysterio, however, has second thoughts about coming back to WWE.

Jeff Hardy
Earlier this week, Jeff Hardy and Jeff Jarrett went on a vacation together with their families in tow. While that might come as a surprise to a lot of fans, this is not the first time that the two families have done this. Apparently, Hardy and Jarrett have grown rather close over the years. That closeness has led to rumors about Hardy bolting TNA after his contract expires to join Jarrett in his new Global Force Wrestling promotion.

Big Show
On Monday Night Raw, WWE did a story line where Randy Orton was on vacation. That led to speculations as to the real reason why he was not there. It has now been revealed that Orton suffered some sort of collarbone injury while working a match on Smackdown with Big Show. The belief is that the injury is not too severe and that Orton is scheduled to return to the next episode of Monday Night Raw in Cleveland.

Randy Orton
The story on Monday Night Raw this week was that Randy Orton was on vacation and not at the show. The reason for that is to generate more heel heat for him from WWE fans. His character gets a shot at the world title from Triple H without having to win a qualifying match like the other performers are doing. No word yet on whether or not Orton was actually given the night off, though.

Rey Mysterio
While he has been taken off of television and has been spending time with his family on a Hawaii vacation, WWE fans have been asking if Rey Mysterio is still wrestling.

Earlier in the year, there were rumors that Titus ONeil was going to be receiving a push from WWE. Reports surfaced that it was dropped because of the poor reaction that his match against Darren Young at Elimination Chamber 2014 received from the audience.

Darren Young
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.

Darren Young
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.

Darren Young
There has been some back and forth backstage recently over the push that Titus ONeil is set to receive.
