Paul Bearer
Michael Moody has passed away. While he's not necessarily a well known name in the world of professional wrestling, many will remember him as being the son of the legendary Paul Bearer. When the company wanted to induct the iconic manager into their hall of fame, WWE enlisted the help of his two sons to do the honors. Moody was 34 years of age and passed away in his sleep.

Bully Ray
When his contract was expiring, a lot of fans wondered what TNA would do with Bully Ray and his stories since he was leaving the company. The two sides have reached an agreement to continue working together, so that the stories can be resolved. Bully Ray will also work the Bound For Glory 2014 event and be inducted into the TNA Hall of Fame before parting ways.

Bully Ray
Reports surfaced not too long ago that Bully Ray was leaving TNA, as his contract was set to expire and a new deal could not be reached between the two sides. Apparently, he is going to remain on good terms with management, as the former world heavyweight champion is still being advertised for Bound For Glory 2014. Team 3D is scheduled to be inducted into the hall of fame that evening, but it would not come as a shock if Bully ended up working a match on the pay per view.

Kevin Nash
In the past, Kevin Nash has been pretty adamant about not wanting to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. He's even gone as far as to instruct his wife to decline the offer if he were to pass away. It seems like Nash is now softening his stance. He recently stated that he would refuse to be inducted as Diesel, but he did not mention anything about going in under his real name.
August 11, 2014
Jake Roberts
Some interesting news was recently revealed by Jake Roberts. The master of the DDT told fans that he initially did not want to be inducted during the same night as the Ultimate Warrior, as the two of them have had a longstanding backstage heat. Roberts also stated that he was going to avoid Warrior at the hall of fame ceremony. However, both sides decided to make up with one another instead.
August 3, 2014
Ricky Steamboat
With the company losing millions of dollars this year, budget cuts are looming over everyone in WWE. The latest string of them has made a casualty out of a beloved hall of fame performer. Ricky Steamboat has quietly been released from his contract. The former Intercontinental Champion had been working in the talent relations department under Triple H over the past year.
July 19, 2014
Bray Wyatt
A black eye usually is not something to be proud of. It is, however, when you're a lifelong wrestling fan being punched by one of the greatest performers that the industry has ever seen. Bray Wyatt received a black eye during a big live event at Madison Square Garden in New York City over the weeken due to an errant punch by Ric Flair. Reports are stating that the incident happened because Flair forgot that he was wearing his hall of fame ring. There is said to be no backstage heat between the two due to the injury.
July 14, 2014
CM Punk
Since leaving WWE earlier in the year, CM Punk has remained relatively quiet, making sporadic appearances at NHL and MLB games. The former world heavyweight champion is going to be making a higher profile appearance later on this month. Punk will be the co-host of the kickoff show for the Alternative Press Music Awards, which is being held at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland.
July 9, 2014
Scott Hall
After announcing his retirement from UFC, Chael Sonnen posted a quote on his Twitter account that stated, "Bad times don't last, but bad guys do." The comment caught the attention of Scott Hall, who proceeded to criticize Sonnen for stealing the line that he made while being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. This appears to be a misunderstanding as Sonnen is a big fan of wrestling and has used several quotes over the years.
June 22, 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
Rock
Since he is easily one of the biggest stars that professional wrestling ever produced, the Rock remains the top choice for WWE when it comes to the Hall of Fame induction ceremony at Wrestlemania 31. However, the company has now focused on Sting as a potential candidate to take the top spot in the class next year in case they are unable to convince Rock to participate in the event.
June 17, 2014
Jeff Jarrett
Thus far, the TNA Hall of Fame consists of Sting and Kurt Angle, two of the more prolific performers in the history of the industry. A third member is set to join them. At Slammiversary 2014, Angle will be on hand to announce who the latest inductee will be. No official word on who the third person was going to be, but there are heavy rumors that Jeff Jarrett could be inducted as part of his departure agreement with TNA.
June 11, 2014
Randy Savage
Today is a sad one for professional wrestling fans. It marks the third year anniversary of the death of Randy Savage, one of the biggest legends in WWE history. The former Intercontinental Champion passed away after suffering a heart attack and crashing into a tree while driving. Much like before his death, fans have been begging WWE to induct him into the hall of fame.

Bob Holly
"They try to make that hall of fame leigtimate, but if you'll notice, to me, it's politically driven. A dead giveaway is Hunter wanting all of his little buddies, his little circle first. He's taken care of all of them." - Bob Holly suggesting that backstage politics plays a big part in the WWE Hall of Fame
May 19, 2014
Kevin Nash
Earlier this month, rumors surfaced that Mickie James and Rikishi were candidates to join the Rock at the hall of fame induction ceremony during Wrestlemania 31. Another name that WWE has reportedly been discussing is Kevin Nash, even though the former world heavyweight champion has been vocally against being inducted.
May 17, 2014
Jimmy Uso
Another interesting name that has surfaced in the rumor mill as a potential hall of fame inductee at Wrestlemania 31 is Rikishi. The belief is that including him in the same class as the Rock, whom WWE is hoping will be the centerpiece induction at the event, makes a lot of sense. There is also the chance that a reconciliation and reunion with Naomi Knight and Jimmy Uso could be a big story.
May 14, 2014
Lita
Since the company has already given the honors to Lita and Trish Stratus, two of the more known WWE Divas over the last two decades, management is said to be looking for another female performer to induct into the hall of fame at Wrestlemania 31. A name being tossed around right now is Mickie James, who is currently pregnant but should be available by next spring.
May 14, 2014
Kevin Nash
When he is not inducting his good friend into the WWE Hall of Fame, Kevin Nash does a little bit of work as an actor. The former world heavyweight champion revealed that he has a small part in an upcoming movie with Keanu Reeves. It is called John Wick. Reeves plays the lead role as a highly qualified hit man who ends up killing more than 300 people in the film.

Andre the Giant
"He's definitely a legendary guy that deserves to be in the WWE Hall of Fame, I'm glad he got to go in when he was still alive. I always respected him as a performer, some of his matches were pretty quick I remember he came in the Winnipeg arena once and beat Andre the Giant in 30 seconds, at the time I was like, 'What a rip off! That sucks.' But I remember Wrestlemania 6 where he had a classic with Hulk Hogan, much like a lot of guys from that time period he had good matches when he had the right opponent." - Chris Jericho on Ultimate Warrior as a performer

Eric Bischoff
For years, Eric Bischoff has been criticized by fans for handing out gigantic guaranteed contracts to performers. The former president of WCW has finally explained the cause behind that.

Eric Bischoff
There are those that believe that Eric Bischoff could have been the one to save TNA from their struggles in obtaining a new television contract from Spike TV. Bischoff has a good amount of power with the television networks since he has a couple of shows on the air. He also has a better understanding of wrestling than United Talent Agency, the company currently negotiating on behalf of Dixie Carter, so he would be able to sell the product even better.

Jeff Jarrett
"David Arquette is his own animal. As much heat as he ever took, for him, all the money he made for that pay per view when he busted me over the head with the guitar and Jeff Jarrett took the world title, the money he made, he gave to Melanie Pillman. When he pinned Eric Bischoff, not me, and I will go on record as saying that was the biggest clusterfuck ever, and it never should have happened, but it did. That being said, that was the booking committee. It was not Arquette, and every fan that has ever roasted him, should dip their own ass in boiling oil because everyone of you that has buried Arquette, if put in the same position, you would have jumped through a hoop of burning oil to do the same shit. That's why when everyone busts his balls on that, I just want to smack someone. I'm like, "really, you, Marko Mark? You would have died for that." - Diamond Dallas Page defending David Arquette for winning a championship
