Daniel Bryan
During a recent interview with Sports Illustrated Now, Daniel Bryan discussed his status after neck surgery. He revealed that he still has weakness in one of his hands, which Bryan stated is a detriment in his line of work. The former world heavyweight champion also revealed that doctors are unable to figure out how he can get strength back in his hand, so he is unsure if he can make a return to WWE or not.

Jonathan Coachman
In a rather interesting bit of news, Renee Young has been moving up the ladder quite a bit in WWE. The belief is that the company is trying to appease her after finding out that ESPN was interested in bringing the beautiful blonde over to their network. The company had already lost Jonathan Coachman and Todd Grisham to the sports network. They don't want to lose Young as well. There are those backstage that even believe that Vince McMahon could allow her to become a commentator on Smackdown or Monday Night Raw, in order to keep her from bolting.
July 10, 2014
James Storm
The decision to invite members of the Dallas Cowboys to Slammiversary 2014 proved to be quite an effective marketing move, as TNA was able to garner some mainstream media coverage from George Selvie being involved in a segment with James Storm and Mr Anderson. Among those that covered the incident were Dallas Morning News, TMZ, Fox Sports, CBS and a variety of local affiliates.
June 16, 2014
Damien Sandow
While a lot of wrestling fans weren't exactly sure who Lance Stephenson was, the move by WWE to have Damien Sandow mocking an NBA player has paid off. Several sports media outlets have picked up on the story, which gives WWE free publicity. Since Stephenson has been known to retaliate in the public, there's a chance that WWE could receive further publicity if he responds to this segment.
June 3, 2014
Great Muta
With more people in the United States now aware that the Great Muta owns a wrestling promotion called Wrestle-1, many have started wondering about the net worth of the Japanese legend. While he has made millions over the years, Muta actually has financial backers to help fund Wrestle-1. GEN Sports Entertainment put down quite a bit of money to help launch the promotion.

Jim Ross
Prior to adopting the over the top style that made him a legend in the eyes of WWE fans, Jim Ross utilized a realistic sports style of commentating. He will be returning to that style on his latest venture for FOX Sports 1. During Memorial Day weekend, Ross will be trying his hand at being a boxing commentator at an event in El Paso, Texas.
May 10, 2014
Jonathan Coachman
If things go as expected, then Renee Young is expected to follow in the footsteps of Todd Grisham and Jonathan Coachman, two former WWE on screen personalities who ended up with ESPN. The sports network has heavy interest in Renee right now, as executives there have been impressed with how well she has performed for WWE.
April 18, 2014
CM Punk
Since there are rumors swirling around that the former world heavyweight champion is in New Orleans this weekend, there is a sports book that is taking bets on whether or not CM Punk makes his return at Wrestlemania 30. This is not sanctioned by Betfair Sportsbook and not by WWE. The odds are against Punk returning this weekend.
April 3, 2014
Taz
While much of the sports world is making a big fuss about Michael Sam revealing that he was gay, Taz took to Twitter to share his feelings on the matter. The Impact Wrestling commentator feels that society should not be making such a big deal out of someone's sexuality.
February 13, 2014
Vince McMahon
While some backstage, including Vince McMahon himself, were said to be concerned that the Olympics would affect the ratings for Monday Night Raw, WWE managed to maintain a firm grip on their viewers this week. Numbers actually went up slightly, despite NBC drawing in 22.4 million viewers to the global sports competition.
February 12, 2014
Mojo Rawley
One of the reasons why WWE is putting a lot of faith and expectation in Mojo Rawley is because he is a former NFL player. He had brief stints with the Green Bay Packers and Arizona Cardinals, but a severe injury derailed him. Management feels that his professional sports background gives him a little more credibility than the other developmental wrestlers.
February 7, 2014
Jim Ross

After a couple of days of speculations, the contract between Jim Ross and Fox Sports has been finalized and signed. While his official role with the company has yet to be revealed, the long time WWE commentator has posted a new article about the Royal Rumble on their website.

Daniel Bryan

"I honestly don't know. Nobody ever had that discussion with me. So to me, it's interesting. I just go out there and do the best I can. But I think that might have certainly played a part in it. And especially, man, that was awesome, seeing it. So, Titus ONeil, he had texted me. He said, 'Dude, if you're in your hotel room, you have to turn on SportsCenter. I think they'll replay it in probably about 15 minutes.' And he didn't tell me what it was, but he just told me that I was mentioned. And then I saw it, and they mentioned me and the whole Michigan State basketball thing doing the thing, and I was like wow. That's really cool. And the guy that actually started it, he's going to be coming to the show tonight with three of the guys from, I think, three of the guys from the football team. I don't know if that's true, or if it's just three of his buddies. But he is from the football team, so he's going to be coming. It'll be pretty neat to meet him."

January 21, 2014
JBL

JBL is a pretty ambitious individual. The WWE commentator will be attempting to climb Mt Elbrus again in July. He had previous attempted the feat, but severe weather conditions in Russia forced him and his fellow climbers to give up on the trek before they made it to the peak.

January 17, 2014
Brie Bella

In an interesting move, NFL AM had the Bella Twins on the show this morning, and the twin WWE divas discussed the Philadelphia Eagles.

January 17, 2014
Captain Lou Albano

While most wrestling fans know him as Captain Lou Albano, very few know about the origin of the nickname. As a youth, he excelled in sports, where he rose to the ranks of captain of his high school football team. It was there when people started calling him Captain.

January 16, 2014
Dolph Ziggler

Even though he suffered another concussion and is awaiting further tests from a specialist, it appears that Dolph Ziggler will still be working for WWE, as the former World Heavyweight Champion has been booked for an appearance with the Miz at a Cleveland Cavaliers game.

January 15, 2014
Jim Ross

“I have not yet signed with Fox but we are obviously close and are hopeful that we can finalize the contract next week. Fox provides an amazing platform for creative work and for the many projects that I am working on during the most unretired time of my life. Fox has some potentially, amazing creative ideas for me of which I hope that we get to collaborate on sooner than later.”

January 14, 2014
Dean Ambrose
After checking out the live event that WWE ran opposite Monday Night Raw yesterday, it is clear that Chris Jericho was definitely a much needed addition because star power was very low. Dean Ambrose, Antonio Cesaro and Bray Wyatt were the three top stars at the event, none of which have extended stays in the main event scene. The rest of the card was filled with lower card performers, so Jericho was the main attraction for many of the people in the audience.
November 11, 2014
Dean Ambrose
Rumors are floating around that Randy Orton suffered a serious injury during the handicap street fight tag team match on Monday Night Raw. It took place early in the match when Dean Ambrose dove out of the ring and on to the heels. Orton reportedly told the trainer that the ruptured disc in his back was messed up. No word yet on whether or not he can work Hell in a Cell 2014, but as a precaution, WWE kept Orton from working Smackdown this week.
October 22, 2014
Dean Ambrose
During a recent interview, Dean Ambrose revealed that he had no idea that he was going to be the lead actor in a WWE movie. He thought he was just going to have a really small part as a background character. However, upon reading the script, he realized that he was the lead role. Ambrose also admitted that he was not qualified for the gig, but management thought he could pull it off.
October 18, 2014
Randy Orton
WWE is promoting Hell in a Cell 2014 as having a double main event, and the reason behind that is simple. They do not believe that Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins are proven draws yet, even with the big steel structure and a highly entertaining feud behind them. Thus, the reliance on John Cena and Randy Orton, two guys that the company has relied on for years now, to help sell the pay per view.
October 14, 2014
Dean Ambrose
"A lot of people talk about the attitude era being so great but a lot of it was terrible crap, sex jokes and over-the-top terrible bad comedy. It was Jerry Springer-like. They made a joke about a woman's breasts. Hilarious, but where's the wrestling? I look back on a lot of stuff now, and I'm like where's the wrestling? It's just a lot of crappy jokes." - Dean Ambrose discusses his disdain for a popular WWE era
October 10, 2014
Triple H
On Monday Night Raw, Triple H and Stephanie McMahon announced that John Cena and Dean Ambrose would be facing one another in a match at Hell in a Cell 2014, and the winner would get to work the main event against Seth Rollins in the gigantic steel structure. Rumors are still floating around that the loser of the match will be given Randy Orton as a consolation prize.
October 7, 2014
Brock Lesnar
While WWE is still trying to finalize plans for Hell in a Cell 2014, one thing is certain. Seth Rollins is going to be working a match inside of the huge steel structure. His opponent will either be John Cena or Dean Ambrose. Management has not yet made a decision on that, but the belief is that Cena has the advantage because he has been more of a proven draw over the years, and the pay per view desperately needs that drawing power since Brock Lesnar and the WWE title are not going to be present.
September 30, 2014
Seth Rollins
By now, everyone knows that Roman Reigns has been hospitalized and is forced to miss Night of Champions 2014. Seth Rollins needs a new opponent. One of the ideas being tossed around is to have Dean Ambrose making a surprise return at the pay per view and continue his feud with Rollins. Ambrose had taken a couple of weeks away from WWE to film a movie, but he finished up this weekend.
September 21, 2014
Dean Ambrose
A Shield reunion could be taking place as soon as Night of Champions 2014. Unfortunately, though, the trio will not be on the same side. There are talks now that instead of doing a singles match between Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns, WWE could opt to go with a tag team match. Dean Ambrose would make his return and team up with Reigns against the team of Rollins and Kane.
August 26, 2014
Seth Rollins
There is a split backstage in WWE when it comes to viewing Dean Ambrose as a main event performer. A lot of people in management do not view the former Shield member as someone of that caliber. He also has his supporters, and that group has probably increased in size after his superb performances with Seth Rollins at Summerslam 2014 and Monday Night Raw.
August 21, 2014
Steve Austin
Expect to hear plenty of comparisons between Dean Ambrose and Steve Austin over the next couple of months. WWE is having the former Shield member take elements of the Austin character in an attempt to win over even more fans. While it was not shown on Monday Night Raw, the company is doing a story where Ambrose refused medical attention after being severely injured by Kane and Seth Rollins.
August 21, 2014
Dean Ambrose
For those wondering about the final segment of Monday Night Raw this week, it was designed to write Dean Ambrose off of television. There were speculations that he was going to need time off to film a movie for WWE Studios, but the initial belief was that he would not need to miss television time. It now appears that the company is just going to take him off the road, so he can focus on filming.
August 19, 2014
Dean Ambrose
When it was announced that Dean Ambrose was going to be starring in an upcoming WWE Studios movie, the belief was that he was going to need to take some time off to film his part. It looks like the former United States Heavyweight Champion might only be missing the live events, as management still wants him around on Monday Night Raw and Smackdown to further his feud with Seth Rollins.
August 16, 2014
Heath Slater
On Monday Night Raw, fans saw Rob Van Dam being pulled from a Beat the Clock match against Seth Rollins. He was replaced by Heath Slater, who got the surprising win, thanks to distractions from Dean Ambrose. It turns out that WWE did that because RVD is actually not cleared to wrestle. He is still recovering from an unknown injury. For what it's worth, it appears that he might be fine soon, as the former world heavyweight champion is scheduled to head to Australia for the tour.
August 6, 2014
Roman Reigns
While he might not be as hyped as Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose is actually moving up quite a bit in the eyes of management. In addition to doing a good job at portraying his character and working solid matches in the ring, Ambrose has caught the attention of management by becoming a media darling. His ability to make WWE look good to the public has put him in the good graces of high ranking officials.
August 5, 2014
Seth Rollins
During a recent interview with CBS Radio in Washington DC, Batista was asked for his opinion on Roman Reigns. The former world heavyweight champion stated that he felt that WWE is pushing Reigns a bit too quickly. Batista feels that the company would have benefited more by giving Reigns, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins a longer baby face run since the stable was really over with the audience.
August 5, 2014
Antonio Cesaro
Rumors are floating around right now that WWE officials have banned Antonio Cesaro from utilizing his giant swing move. The belief is that the company does not want him to accumulate more fan support because the move has proven to be massively popular. Management is said to be holding off on his face turn and big push because they want to focus on Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns first.
July 26, 2014
Seth Rollins
During the main event of Monday Night Raw this week, it appeared that Seth Rollins injured his knee during an interaction with Roman Reigns. Rumors are floating around now that he is actually fine and was just selling the move. However, there are reports that WWE is simply downplaying things, so that fans will continue to be hyped for his upcoming match against Dean Ambrose. Fans in attendance noted that the referee did indeed signal the medical crew backstage when the incident happened.
July 15, 2014
Jack Swagger
In a very exciting match, Seth Rollins outlasted Dean Ambrose, Dolph Ziggler, Kofi Kingston, Rob Van Dam and Jack Swagger to capture the briefcase at Money in the Bank 2014. WWE wants to continue the war between Ambrose and the Authority, so they had Kane coming out and providing assistance to Rollins. Despite the heel tactic to win the match, the Rollins victory was actually cheered by a good amount of fans.
June 29, 2014
Seth Rollins
Thanks to the help of Kane, Seth Rollins was able to climb the ladder uninterrupted and win the briefcase at Money in the Bank 2014. The Big Red Monster came to the ring and attacked Dean Ambrose to clear the path. Kofi Kingston, Dolph Ziggler, Jack Swagger and Rob Van Dam were all laid out on the floor during the finale. WWE power couple Triple H and Stephanie McMahon came out afterwards to congratulate Rollins.
