CM Punk
For those of you that are clinging on to the smaller glimmer of hope that CM Punk will return to WWE some day, there may possibly be some good news this week. Punk posted a warm message towards Paul Heyman, his former on screen manager and good friend in real life, on Twitter. That post was noticed by Triple H, who made it one of his Favorites. For those that are not keen to social media, that means that he approves of the message. It also shows that HHH isn't as upset with Punk as some people think he is.
November 23, 2014
Tara
Generally, Tara is usually upbeat and fun on social media, but the former TNA Knockout is going through some drama right now. She posted the phone number for a woman named Liz on Twitter. When asked by fans as to who that is, Tara stated that it was the girl that has been sending text messages to her husband during all hours of the day and night. In another interesting move, Tara also retweeted a post from someone in regards to divorce, leading to speculations that her marriage could be on the rocks.
November 18, 2014
Christian
Management does not want Christian back in the wrestling ring, but since he is still on the payroll, the company is finding various ways to put him to good use. The latest task has the former world heavyweight champion flying over to France to do some promotional work for the recently released WWE 2K15 video game. Christian will make various media appearances and encourage consumers to make the purchase.
October 29, 2014
Ryback
Since he was no longer a topic of discussion, Ryback managed to have his return to Monday Night Raw fly under the radar. That, in part, helped to generate a much better reception for the former main event performer than expected. WWE fans in the arena chanted his catchphrase and cheered for him, while online fans helped his name become a trend on various social media websites.
October 28, 2014
Alberto Del Rio
WWE is looking for a new social media manager. While that normally would not generate much interest, it does so here in this case because the previous guy that held the spot was Cody Barbierri, the allegedly racist employee that played a huge part in the controversial Alberto Del Rio release earlier in the year. No word yet on whether or not the release is related to the incident, but more on the story should be revealed in the upcoming days and weeks.
October 24, 2014
Rock
As many of you already know, the Rock is in Japan to promote the Hercules movie that he stars in. While there, he decided to have dinner with a very famous individual. The former WWE star dined with Mark Zuckerberg, the genius behind Facebook. Rock noted that he was quite grateful towards social media because it has enabled him to connect with fans in a very intimate way.
October 21, 2014
Gene Snitsky
Through social media, Gene Snitsky has expressed his dissatisfaction with TNA for not bringing him on board full time. He did a couple of segments on Impact Wrestling this summer, but management has opted to remain fiscally responsible, as they are still trying to secure a new television contract. The company is expected to start signing wrestlers are that happens.
October 19, 2014
Sin Cara
In a rather peculiar move, WWE opted to inform the local media in Mexico that the Sin Cara was being performed by the original wrestler. That is not the case at all, since he was released some time ago. Many in Mexico are already aware of that fact and know that he is currently working for AAA under a different name. No word yet on why WWE opted to make that claim.
October 18, 2014
Rock
The movie roles keep coming in for the Rock. The former WWE star revealed through social media that he will be starring in the big screen version of Baywatch. Reports are saying that the movie will not be based directly on the characters on the television show and will involve a lot more comedy. Minor roles are being written for David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson, should they decide to accept the parts.
October 3, 2014
Paul Heyman
As many fans already know, Lisa Marie Varon, who worked in TNA as Tara and in WWE as Victoria, owns and operates a very successful restaurant in the Chicago area. She generated some media attention for her establishment this week when she revealed that she was introducing a burger named after Paul Heyman soon. It will feature swiss cheese, pastrami, sauerkraut and Thousand Island dressing.
September 27, 2014
AJ Lee
A bit of buzz was created earlier this week when it was reported that AJ Lee was among the many female celebrities who have had their nude pictures leaked online by hacker. Unfortunately for WWE fans, however, those rumors were false. The divas champion herself even commented on the rumors through social media. She did so in her usual playful way.
September 27, 2014
Hulk Hogan
A little bit of controversy was stirred this week when the media got a hold of the dress code implemented by the Hulk Hogan restaurant in Florida. When the WWE legend found out that some people were offended by it, he called the owner of the place and demanded that they take it down. TMZ revealed that Hogan doesn't actually own the establish. He simply licenses out his name for them to use.
September 26, 2014
Alberto Del Rio
Trash to one man might be viewed as a treasure to another. When Alberto Del Rio was fired from WWE due to a backstage incident, AAA salivated at the thought of building their company around him. When the two sides were legally allowed to sign a contract, management quickly jumped on it and made Del Rio the face of their company. Thus far, they have been pleased with the results because Del Rio carries himself extremely well, especially during media interviews.
September 25, 2014
Brie Bella
During a media interview to promote Total Divas, Brie Bella revealed that Daniel Bryan would not be needing the second surgery that has long been rumored to repair his neck injury. She stated that her husband was gaining the strength back in his right arm and could be back as soon as three months, which would enable WWE to have him make a surprise return at Royal Rumble 2015.
September 7, 2014
Stephanie McMahon
Before the WWE Network was shoved down the throats of fans on a weekly basis, the company was promoting a social media website called Tout. They constantly mentioned the service, and they had several of their performers utilizing it to interact with the fans. WWE invested approximately $5000 into the company and signed a two year agreement. Stephanie McMahon was even on their board of directors. It looks like the deal is now over, as reports has surfaced that WWE was not interested in renewing the contract.
September 3, 2014
Jake Roberts
In a sign of just how popular and mainstream Jake Roberts was during the 1980s, several media outlets provided coverage of the WWE legend being sent to the hospital this week. TMZ does a good job of covering wrestling, so they were on the ball with the Roberts story. Huffington Post and USA Today, which does not feature much about the industry, even covered the story.
August 29, 2014
Alberto Del Rio
As expected, WWE has instructed their performers to remain silent if they are asked about the backstage incident that led to the release of Alberto Del Rio. When asked by the media, Sheamus explicitly stated that he knew nothing of the situation, even though most everyone in the company is aware of what happened. Management does not want to run the risk of starting a legal battle with Del Rio.
August 17, 2014
Austin Aries
Back in July, Austin Aries decided to go silent on Twitter because he was protesting the decision by TNA to allow fans to vote on the return of the six sided ring. For those that are wondering, the X Division Champion has already came back to the social media website. He has been posting regularly. Aries is even promoting Impact Wrestling on there, so it looks like he's back on good terms with the company.
August 16, 2014
Diamond Dallas Page
With so many people praising the yoga system that Diamond Dallas Page created, it's pretty easy to find compliments and feel good stories on social media sites. The latest person to give him praise is Jesse Sorensen, the former TNA star who seriously injured his neck during a match. Sorensen stated that the DDP system helped him get his neck back in order.
August 16, 2014
Roman Reigns
One of the things that will help Roman Reigns in his quest to win the WWE title is the fact that he has a good amount of sex appeal. It was one of the first things that Triple H noticed when he met Reigns. The company keeps track of what fans are saying through social media, and they're easily able to see that a lot of female fans are attracted to his looks. That might help draw in the female demographics.
August 16, 2014
Dusty Rhodes
The WWE web team recently put together a list of the best talkers in the history of professional wrestling, and they do not have a fan in Dusty Rhodes. The former world heavyweight champion was upset that he was not ranked in the top spot. Rhodes was listed at #5. He posted a message on Twitter to express how disappointed and disgusted he was with the results.
April 28, 2014
Dusty Rhodes
On their official website, WWE produced a list of the greatest talkers in the history of the business. The top five consisted of Ric Flair, Rock, Dusty Rhodes, Roddy Piper and Steve Austin. The more interesting inclusion, though, is CM Punk, who is listed at #16. The company has not made much mention of him since he walked away a couple of months ago.
April 25, 2014
Dusty Rhodes
Even though the brothers have not been utilized on television as strongly as they were a couple of months ago, WWE is working on a DVD that will featured around Dusty Rhodes, Cody Rhodes and Goldust. The family should be receiving a push whenever the DVD is ready to be launched. There's a good chance now that Goldust will stick around a little bit longer.
March 14, 2014
Dusty Rhodes
A lot of younger fans are not aware of this, but Dusty Rhodes used to be a wrestling promoter, and the itch to run a show recently returned to the legendary former NWA champion. He is doing a show this weekend in Miami, where Wes Brisco, Carlito, Jesse Sorensen and several other performers have been booked to wrestle.
March 13, 2014

While he has not been seen on television in quite some time, Yoshi Tatsu is still with WWE. The Japanese wrestler has been training with the company at the performance center. Tatsu has been working closely with Dusty Rhodes on improving himself as a character.

January 16, 2014
Dusty Rhodes

Dusty Rhodes is one of the many former WWE stars who are making an on screen return on the special Old School edition of Monday Night Raw next week, and chances are, he will be working some sort of segment with Cody Rhodes and Goldust.

December 31, 2013
Rey Mysterio
The backstage heat between Rey Mysterio and WWE continues to grow. The latest incident to add fuel to the fire took place recently when the popular masked performer showed up backstage at a Lucha Underground event, which is being funded by AAA. Photos of the visit surfaced on social media, but they were quickly taken down, in order to avoid legal ramifications for Mysterio.
October 9, 2014
Alexander Rusev
Rumors are floating around right now that there is a good amount of backstage heat from management towards Zack Ryder. Some are even pointing to the fact that he was squashed by Alexander Rusev recently as evidence that WWE is upset with him for comments that he has made on social media. The belief is that Ryder is on thin ice nowadays, as his name value has been reduced greatly by being utilized sparsely over the last couple of years.
September 2, 2014
Alberto Del Rio
It looks like Alberto Del Rio will not be joining TNA or Global Force Wrestling after all. During a media appearance, the former world heavyweight champion revealed that he cannot wrestle in the United States for approximately a year. The belief is that he breached his contract with WWE when the backstage incident took place. That reportedly enables the company to ban him from working for another wrestling promotion.
August 16, 2014
David Otunga
When Jennifer Hudson told the media that she was not pleased with idea of David Otunga leaving the family for extended periods of time by returning to a full time schedule with WWE, many were under the belief that it was just for public relations. However, there are those that believe that it might be a legitimate thing, as Otunga has yet to hit the road again. WWE is said to be interested in a return.
August 13, 2014
Alberto Del Rio
When reports initially surfaced that Alberto Del Rio was given a release from WWE, a lot of fans sided with the company. When word got out that it involved something potential racist, people started to switch sides. Del Rio has been picking up a lot of support on social media websites. It has even gotten to the point where the former world heavyweight champion became a Twitter trend on Saturday evening.
August 9, 2014
Chavo Guerrero
With his professional wrestling career seemingly behind him, Chavo Guerrero has stepped into the world of comic books. The former tag team champion will be featured as a superhero in his own series. The story will be loosely based on his family. Guerrero has managed to pick up a bit of media attention for the project, as it is aimed to help show Latinos in a more positive light.
August 9, 2014
Dixie Carter
"Every two years I go through this. This is just the first public negotiation I've ever had. I think social media has really changed this kind of thing. I'm used to every two years negotiating with Spike and negotiating with other networks. This time is absolutely not any different. We're still talking with them, but there are other people, thank God, that are interested in our product. I want to grow this brand; I want to grow it domestically. I want us to be able to start having the kind of success domestically that we're having internationally. I'm not going to stop and none of us are going to stop until we get there. I'm real excited to see and I think we'll know sooner than later what's going to happen." - Dixie Carter addresses the situation on what TNA is doing with Impact Wrestling
August 7, 2014
Vince McMahon
There are rumors floating around right now that WWE is moving Smackdown back to Thursday nights. The speculations arose when fans spotted a production truck stating that the show is aired on Thursday night. A picture has even surfaced on social media. There has been no official word from Vince McMahon or WWE, so there are those that believe that it might have simply been a typo.
August 6, 2014
Dean Ambrose
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
MVP
With a lot of fans going on social media and proclaiming the death of his company, MVP has become quite vocal in defense of TNA. The former United States Heavyweight Champion has been telling people that the company will continue to churn through. He is under the belief that a new television deal will be worked out before the end of the year.
August 1, 2014
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.
July 25, 2014
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
Dusty Rhodes
For a while, there was a very good chance that Dusty Rhodes was going to be involved at Wrestlemania 30, as his sons, Cody Rhodes and Goldust, were penciled in for a match against one another at the pay per view. However, with WWE leaning away from that idea now, there really is not much of a need for Rhodes to be booked for the show.
March 2, 2014
Hulk Hogan
A picture of Hulk Hogan visiting the WWE Performance Center. Also pictured are Nick Dinsmore, Bill DeMott, Dusty Rhodes, Normal Smiley and former WCW star Terry Taylor.
February 22, 2014
Dusty Rhodes
Through Twitter, Dusty Rhodes posted this special happy birthday message to his granddaughter Dakota Runnels. She is the daughter of WWE star Goldust.
February 14, 2014
Dusty Rhodes
"It was strictly politics. Dusty Rhodes was the booker and he was against it. You know, what are you going to do. He didn't book me anywhere during the whole time I had the belt until the rematch because Dusty Rhodes was a very, very jealous guy when it came to guys getting over. He was the wrong guy to be a booker. He is the one who put Jim Crockett out of business. He is the reason Jim Crockett had to sell and was losing his butt. It was the same thing with the Rock and Roll Express. He couldn't stand the Rock and Roll Express getting over like rock stars. I mean, girls would go crazy. They had to have some protection for the Rock and Roll Express, the girls would attack them, just like rock stars, it was unbelievable." - Ronnie Garvin discusses backstage politics and Dusty Rhodes
February 12, 2014
Jeremy Borash

Dixie Carter placed a clue on Twitter about the new arrivals by writing the initials "DR" and "EE", which prompted Jeremy Borash to guess that it was Dusty Rhodes and Eric Embry. The widespread speculation is that it is Davey Richards and Eddie Edwards.

January 16, 2014
Arn Anderson
Back in 1988, Tully Blanchard was one of the top stars in the NWA, and he had no intentions of leaving a place where he was established and comfortable. All that changed, however, when Blanchard and Arn Anderson had a dispute over pay with Dusty Rhodes, who was then serving as the head booker of the NWA. The duo quickly dropped the tag titles and headed to the WWE.
January 15, 2014
Dusty Rhodes

The belief is that Dusty Rhodes was purposely kept off of the Old School Raw episode because of lingering heat with Stephanie McMahon. The WWE legend went off script during an in ring segment with the Chief Brand Officer last year.

January 9, 2014
Dusty Rhodes

While many fans know that Cody Rhodes and Goldust are brothes, some do not know that they are actually half brothers. Their father is WWE legend Dusty Rhodes, but they each have different mothers. The wrestling siblings are approximately sixteen years apart in age.

January 1, 2014
Dusty Rhodes

One of the people who backed up Kassius Ohno with management was Dusty Rhodes, who was really pushing for the company to keep the former ROH star around.

November 28, 2013
Dusty Rhodes

Dustin Rhodes has been publicly campaigning for WWE to bring him back, so that he can work a pay per view match against his younger brother Cody Rhodes, but it is a move that their legendary father Dusty Rhodes does not feel will be happening any time soon.

July 23, 2013
Sting
Whatever money that WWE spent on bringing Sting on board, has apparently started to pay off. The legendary performer made his official debut at Survivor Series 2014, and that generated a ton of hype with fans across the globe. Many wanted to see if he would become a regular part of the television shows, enough to increase the amount of viewers for Monday Night Raw this week by approximately half a million.
November 26, 2014
AJ Styles
A serious setback has sprung up for Yoshi Tatsu, long regarded as one of the hardest working and passionate performers in professional wrestling. He suffered two broken bones in his neck, and is going to require a good amount of time in rehabilitation. Tatsu noted that he has never been hospitalized prior to this injury. The belief is that the broken neck was suffered during a recent match against AJ Styles.
November 26, 2014
Kane
In order to boost Ryback up to the main event scene, management is going to have him beating some of the upper tier guys in WWE. His next step is Kane, and the company is going to try to give a quick boost to his momentum by pairing the two of them in a Chairs match at WWE TLC 2014. The renewed faith in Ryback comes as a surprise to many, as second chances are a bit hard to come by backstage.
November 26, 2014
AJ Styles
AJ Styles could be coming home soon. Sort of. American fans of the former world heavyweight champion might get to enjoy his work on television in a couple of weeks. New Japan has just signed a television contract with AVS TV, which is owned by Dallas Mavericks owner and noted wrestling fan Mark Cuban, to start airing their shows in the United States. More details are expected soon.
November 25, 2014
Brock Lesnar
As one of the biggest free agents in the industry right now, Bully Ray is constantly asked about his future plans. The former world heavyweight champion stated that he is open to a return to WWE. However, he wants to have a singles run if he does decide to return to the company. Ray stated that he would like to work a match against Brock Lesnar and John Cena, two of the upper tier guys.
November 24, 2014
Hulk Hogan
If there is a spotlight around, then Roddy Piper wants to be in it. The WWE legend watched Survivor Series 2014 last night, and he witnessed the debut of Sting. Sensing an opportunity, he told fans on Twitter that he would gladly work a tag team match with Sting against Hulk Hogan and a mystery partner. Piper also stated that he only needed seven weeks to be physically prepared for the bout.
November 24, 2014
Randy Orton
A lot of fans were under the impression that Randy Orton was going to make an appearance at Survivor Series 2014, especially since he was backstage and the event was taking place in his hometown. Management actually had that planned, but they canceled the idea because they wanted the focus to be on Sting. Orton will still continue his feud against Seth Rollins, but the creative department will have to come up with a different way to reignite that program.
November 24, 2014
Roman Reigns
Roman Reigns made some headlines recently when it was revealed that he was working with an acting coach to improve his mic skills. That gave WWE fans hope that a new main event performer will arise. However, management apparently is not pleased with the amount of progress that Reigns has made. In fact, they even had him taped a promo last night, even though he was backstage at Survivor Series 2014.
November 24, 2014
David Hart Smith
Sometimes in life, speed bumps arise and slow us down. That is the case right now for David Hart Smith. The second generation star has been having trouble breathing throughout the year because of peritonsillar abscess, a complication of tonsils. Smith has been hospitalized on a couple of occasions because of this. The medical has impeded his progress a bit in New Japan, where he had been thriving.
November 24, 2014
Chris Jericho
Since there are a ton of rumors swirling around this weekend about Survivor Series 2014, Chris Jericho took it as an opportunity to tease the internet wrestling community. The former world heavyweight champion joked that he was going to be meeting up with Randy Orton and Sting for lunch, since all three of them are rumored to be at the pay per view tonight. Jericho performed a concert last night in Minnesota.
November 23, 2014
Dixie Carter
Now that their long anticipated television deal with Destination America has been signed and sealed, Dixie Carter and the TNA management team will now shift their focus towards securing a television contract to continue airing Impact Wrestling in Canada. A deal seems imminent, as the company sounds highly confident in their ongoing negotiations with networks north of the border.
November 22, 2014
Kevin Steen
When you sign a developmental contract with WWE, more often than not, you're going to be spending a good amount of time in training and not on television. Of course, when you have the experience that Kevin Steen has, the wait is a lot shorter. The former ROH Heavyweight Champion, who is now going by the name of Kevin Owens, is scheduled to make his debut on December 11, 2014 at the Takeover: R Evolution event.
November 22, 2014
Erick Rowan
The surprising face turn for Erick Rowan recently left fans a bit confused, as there had been no signs of that happening. The reason for that is simply because WWE did not have it planned out. The move was done at the last minute when management found out that Sheamus was being forced into surgery to repair an assortment of ailments. Rowan went from not being scheduled for Survivor Series 2014 to being in the main event.
November 21, 2014
Dixie Carter
Now that the television deal is signed and sealed, Dixie Carter and her staff will be focusing on offering contracts to performers, both in house and free agents. TNA had allowed several of their starts to depart because they did not want to sign long term deals without knowing if they will remain on the air. It may become a bit of a race, as other employment options have sprung up for wrestlers over the last couple of months.
November 21, 2014
Santino Marella
Fans who tune into the next episode of Monday Night Raw will get an opportunity to see Santino Marella making his return to WWE. However, it is not the long rumored permanent one. The former Intercontinental Champion has been asked to make an appearance, so that he can promote his new movie with Larry the Cable Guy, who also happens to be the guest host of Raw. Marella is still working on making an official comeback some time in 2015.
November 21, 2014
Dixie Carter
One of the reasons why Dixie Carter found the Destination America deal more appealing than the others is because the network promised that they would make TNA a centerpiece. In addition to being given two hours a week for Impact Wrestling, the company will also be allowed to produce specials and secondary shows to be aired. The network is hoping to lure in professional wrestling fans to their other shows as well.
November 21, 2014
Mickie James
During a recent interview, Mickie James was asked about a possible WWE return. She reiterated that she was definitely interested in doing so. However, she firmly stated that she would only do so as an in ring performer. Mickie refuses to be a trainer, something that the company has reportedly shown interest in. Her reasoning for wanting to wrestle instead of train is because she wholeheartedly believes that she is better than the majority of divas in WWE.
November 21, 2014
Diamond Dallas Page
As many of you already now, Diamond Dallas Page has found a great deal of success after professional wrestling. His yoga program has been purchased by thousands of people worldwide, and the business has been thriving. The former world heavyweight champion has hired a new instructor in former ECW star Stevie Richards, who will be relocating to Atlanta to start his full time job soon.
November 20, 2014
Daniel Bryan
Fans at WWE live events have noticed that the company has been greatly reducing the price on Daniel Bryan merchandise over the last couple of weeks. That has led to some speculation about the future of the former world heavyweight champion, who has been out of action because of a severe neck injury. The belief is that management is simply trying to clear out the merchandise, and that it has no bearing on what will happen with Bryan.
November 20, 2014
Sheamus
Apparently, Sheamus is actually injured. Many were under the impression that the former world heavyweight champion was only doing a story line for television, but he posted a photo of himself on Twitter, going in for surgery. It does not appear to be extremely serious. The belief is that Sheamus is going on to repair several minor ailments that have been bugging him. He is expected to miss some time from WWE.
November 20, 2014
