Christopher Daniels
Fans in attendance at the Comic Con event in San Diego this week have a chance to meet Christopher Daniels. The former TNA star has a booth there to promote his comic book. Daniels was paid a visit by Daniel Bryan, who was sent to the show by WWE to help promote the upcoming WWE 2K15 video game. The two of them had a nice talk and posed for a social media picture together.

Jim Ross
Even though he has not been with the company for quite a few months now, Jim Ross was actually under contract to WWE. Until today, that is. The legendary commentator revealed to fans through social media that his contract officially came to an end this week. While Ross has stated before that he would love to be the lead commentator for Monday Night Raw again, it does not appear that Vince McMahon is interested in that.
July 23, 2014
Alexander Rusev
Rumors are floating around right now that WWE has decided to drop the story line involving Zeb Colter, Jack Swagger, Alexander Rusev and Lana. The belief is that the company changed their minds after seeing the backlash from the media and the fans over the controversial promo that Lana cut at the pay per view. WWE did not let her do much talking on Monday Night Raw this week.
July 22, 2014
Alexander Rusev
Vince McMahon decided to take a huge gamble at WWE Battleground 2014 when he had Lana and Alexander Rusev cutting a promo that hinted about the recent airplane disaster in the Ukraine. That received plenty of backlash from the media and from fans on social media websites. It got to the point where WWE even released a official statement with a veiled jab at those who are complaining.
July 21, 2014
Bray Wyatt
It looks like the previous media ban has been completely lifted for Bray Wyatt. WWE is now having him do interviews across the country to promote their events. In the past, the company has forced him to avoid speaking publicly, in order to keep an air of mystery around his character. Management wanted to mold him to be similar to the Undertaker character at one point in time.
July 19, 2014
Hulk Hogan
To get an idea of why WWE pays Hulk Hogan so much money even though he can no longer be an in ring performer, simply look at how he was treated during the recent tour of Japan. Media and fans in that country treated the Hogan return as a much bigger thing that the actual WWE live events. Hogan's involvement alone helped to generate better numbers for WWE in Japan than they have been receiving over the last couple of years.
July 17, 2014
Batista
For whatever reasons, Mick Foley took to social media this week to defend Batista, stating that it was unfair for fans to have this much hate towards him and his WWE return. Foley mentioned that Batista was at the wrong place at the wrong time because fans were so desperate to see Daniel Bryan being given a proper push. He also feels that not enough people are happy for Batista being featured in a big movie this summer.
July 14, 2014
Hulk Hogan
With the company in Japan for a tour, WWE stars were in for a bit of a rude awakening this weekend. A 6.8 earthquake struck the island country. Several of the stars made note of the incident through their social media website. Hulk Hogan revealed that his bed had moved around the hotel room. Fortunately, though, this particular earthquake did not produce devastating tsunamis like the last one.
July 12, 2014
David Otunga
About a month ago, it was reported that David Otunga was on his way back to WWE. He revealed those plans to the media, but those plans have yet to surface. It is being said that management simply has not come up with a story for him to make his return to Monday Night Raw and Smackdown. Some are speculating that he could be a mystery entrant into the upcoming Intercontinental Championship battle royal at WWE Battleground 2014.
July 8, 2014
Samoa Joe
Some rumors are floating around this weekend that WWE is trying to sign Samoa Joe. The source of the speculations is said to be due to the fact that Triple H briefly followed Joe on Twitter. Sources are saying that Joe followed HHH back on the social media site, which means that they had the option for two way communications for a period of time this weekend. WWE has long avoided the signing of Joe, so this would be quite an interesting move if true.
July 6, 2014
Santino Marella
During a recent interview, Santino Marella informed the media of something that wrestling observers were already aware of. His in ring career is winding down soon. The former WWE Intercontinental Champion did leave open the possibility of staying with the company as an on screen character or as a host of a WWE Network show. To his credit, Marella has also prepared for life after the ring by opening up a wrestling school.
July 2, 2014
CM Punk
When he decided to walk away from WWE, CM Punk went on a bit of a social media sabbatical. He recently started posting updates on Twitter again, but it's mostly been about hockey. His first wrestling related tweet was made this week when the former world heavyweight champion posted a little joke about a movie to his good friend Paul Heyman, who responded with a joke of his own.
June 29, 2014
Jillian Hall
Through social media, Jillian Hall revealed to her fans that she is back to working on an autobiography. There is some skepticism as to how well the book will sell, as her name value drops the longer she has been away from WWE. It has been nearly four years since her release from the company. It also does not appear to be much interest from TNA in signing her, either. That will make it much more difficult for her to move the books.
June 29, 2014
Kenta Kobayashi
Next month, WWE is heading over to Japan for a quick tour, and local media has been announcing that the company will hold a press conference to reveal that they have signed Kenta Kobayashi to a contract. WWE has been wanting to increase their presence in the country, and they can greatly improve their chances of doing that by bringing on board one of the more known performers in Japan.
June 28, 2014
Austin Aries
Since he was rather upset that TNA was allowing fans to choose the type of ring that the performers had to work in, Austin Aries aired his frustrations through Twitter. Now that the six sided ring has been officially brought back, Aries has decided to leave the social media site for the time being. The move is being done out of protest, but there's a good chance that the former TNA champion will be tweeting again some day.
June 25, 2014
Brooke Tessmacher
Since the two of them have just completed filming for the upcoming season of Amazing Race, there is a very good chance that Brooke Tessmacher and Robbie E, who are boyfriend and girlfriend in real life, will be returning to TNA in time to work the upcoming shows in New York City. The company can tout that the two of them are reality television stars, which might get a mention or two from the mainstream media.
June 24, 2014
Bobby Lashley
A big reason why Bobby Lashley was given the TNA World Heavyweight Championship this week is because he is viewed as a marketing asset. The company immediately sent out a press release to inform them that Lashley had become the new champion. TNA is touting his accomplishments as a collegiate athlete, military personnel, mixed martial arts and professional wrestling to the media.
June 20, 2014
Daniel Bryan
There's some potentially bad news if you're a big fan of Daniel Bryan, as rumors are now surfacing that he might not be healthy enough to make a return at Summerslam 2014 as previously predicted. WWE wants to be very careful with his situation, as something negative could trigger a big storm with the mainstream media. Bryan is featured heavily on Total Divas and is one of the more known stars now in the industry.
June 19, 2014
Paige
Rumors leaked recently about Vince McMahon not being a big fan of Paige, which would explain why the creative department has not given her much to work with since she captured the WWE Divas Championship. That riled up her mother, who happens to be a professional wrestler in England. She replied on social media by denying the rumors and mocking wrestling sites for their accuracy. However, she later deleted the messages, perhaps realizing that she was adding fuel to the fire and hurting her daughter by addressing the rumors.
June 17, 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
Tajiri
Since his company is folding and he is joining the Great Muta in Wrestle-1, there are talks that Tajiri could be making an appearance in TNA very soon, as the two companies have been working closely together nowadays. Tajiri still has some name value due to his stint in WWE, and he has a connection with characters like Rhyno, Bully Ray, Tommy Dreamer and Devon.
July 6, 2014
Bully Ray
When TNA announced at Slammiversary 2014 that Devon and Bully Ray were going to be inducted into the hall of fame, it led to a lot of speculation about the status of Devon with the company. It looks like the former television champion is making a return to TNA, as his profile has been restored on the official roster page on their website.
June 17, 2014
Devon
An independent wrestler sued Abdullah the Butcher for damages that he received during a match seven years ago, and the court has sided with him. A judge has declared that Abdullah must now pay Devon Nicholson $2.3 million in damages. Abdullah was accused of blading Nicholson during the match without his consent. Nicholson contracted Hepatitis C from the incident.
June 3, 2014
Kevin Steen
On June 6, Tommy Dreamer is doing another House of Hardcore wrestling event, and the ECW legend has stacked his card up tremendously. Confirmed for the event are Christopher Daniels, Frankie Kazarian, AJ Styles, Devon, Bully Ray, Abyss, Gangrel, Kassius Ohno, Adam Pearce, Kevin Steen, Homicide, Matt Striker, Petey Williams, Shane Helms and the Godfather.
May 20, 2014
Sheamus
"Daniel Bryan, for one. Most people wouldn't put him in that category because he is such a technician in the ring, but I can see him getting down and dirty. Sheamus could be in that category as well. Put Randy Orton there, too. We beat the hell out of each other many times. I know a lot of people cheer him and a lot boo him, but I would put John Cena on that list as well. I had many brawls with him when I was in WWE and he was working himself up in the ranks." - Devon lists the extreme wrestlers in WWE
April 25, 2014
Devon
During an interview that was done for WWE.com, Devon was asked about a potential return to the company, an idea that he would love to see happen. Devon also mentioned that he would love to help bring some life to the tag team division, and the former tag champion named Big E Langston as a WWE star that he could team up with.
April 25, 2014
Devon
Fans have been curious about the status of Devon since he parted ways with TNA last year. The former world tag team champion has been spending a lot of time with his family. Devon has also been doing a lot of work at his wrestling school, where he has been actively training wrestlers now. The former WWE star also wrestles occasionally on the independent circuit.
April 24, 2014
Big Daddy V
The death of Big Daddy V has hit Devon hard, as the two of them were close friends outside of the ring. He posted this message on Twitter, which also includes a picture of several wrestlers hanging out together.
February 21, 2014
Devon
Devon remains in great physical shape nowadays. Some are even saying that he is in the best shape of his life. That has led many to speculate on when he will be returning to WWE or TNA. However, it appears that he is quite fine with where he is at for the time being. Devon is enjoying his time with his family, and he's even doing some charity work on the side.

Devon

"My condolences go out to the family and friends of Mae Young. She was the toughest person I have ever been in the ring with. She was definitely what we call a class act Thank you for making the Dudley Boyz who we are today without you that would have been No Dudley Boyz you will be missed but never forgotten we love you Mae.

Batista

Ric Flair and Batista, representing Evolution, were successfully able to defend the WWE tag titles against the Dudley Boyz in a Tables match at the Royal Rumble. In a rather interesting bit, the match lasted less than five minutes.
