Mick Foley
"Honestly, I'm probably not going to sign my Legends deal with WWE because I don't think they did the right thing by the guys with the video game. The check was a little low. Last year, there was a bankruptcy, but this year there wasn't. So, I don't see the upside to signing the Legends deal when the carrot isn't there dangling. So, I'm not going to sign my Legends deal." - Mick Foley reveals why he is not signing a new contract with WWE

Christopher Daniels
It appears that Christopher Daniels and Frankie Kazarian are set to leave TNA once their contract expires in the coming weeks. Both performers are already accepting bookings on the independent wrestling circuit. There are rumors floating around that Bad Influence could be taking off to Japan or joining Jeff Jarrett in Global Force Wrestling later this year.
April 19, 2014
Vince Russo
Rumors are still going around that Vince Russo is involved with TNA, even though a lot of people within the company have denied that being the case. There are new reports that Russo actually is under a consultant contract that expires in a few months. The belief is that he is helping TNA with the story lines, even though he is not officially a part of the creative department.
April 19, 2014
CM Punk
Even though he has not been with the company for quite a few weeks now, CM Punk is still receiving paychecks from WWE. He still ranks among the top merchandise movers in the entire company, with some reports stating that he only trails John Cena in that category. Punk is still under contract to WWE, so management is still paying him his royalties.
April 18, 2014
Brooke Tessmacher
Since he is one of their more underrated performers, TNA has managed to sign Robbie E to a long term contract extension. Some within the company view that he can be a star down the line, especially since he is still just 30 years of age. There were some questions as to whether or not Robbie was going to stay with the company since the status of his girlfriend Brooke Tessmacher has been up in the air.
April 16, 2014
Sting
While an agreement has been reached between the two sides, it appears that Sting still has yet to sign the contract, wanting to make sure that he and his people go through the details of the arrangement with WWE very finely before making a commitment. One of the main issues is the amount of dates that Sting will have to work as an in ring performer. He will not be wrestling much for WWE.
April 15, 2014
Rey Mysterio
Some potentially interest news coming out of WWE this week is that Rey Mysterio might have actually allowed his contract with the company to expire. The former world heavyweight champion hopped on a plane yesterday afternoon with his family to Hawaii for a little vacation. He was not on Monday Night Raw, and he is not expected at Smackdown.
April 15, 2014
Christopher Daniels
While rumors have persisted for months now that he was going to be leaving the company once his contract expires, there are talks that Christopher Daniels could be sticking around with TNA. Some are under the belief that a new contract has been reached, as he is going to be challenging for the X Division Championship against Seiya Sanada in Japan later on this week.
April 14, 2014
Heath Slater
Since the company needs room for all the new stars that they are bringing up from the developmental program, WWE is expected to allow several of the veteran performers to leave the company soon. The belief is that Heath Slater will be allowed to walk once his contract expires. The 3MB member has expressed frustration backstage over not receiving a push.
April 14, 2014
Chris Sabin
While the company has managed to bring in a couple of new faces over the last several months, TNA has suffered a loss in their talent roster, as Chris Sabin has opted to leave the company. His contract has expired, and the offer presented to him was not favorable enough for him to stick around. Sabin is heading back to the independent wrestling circuit for the time being.
April 13, 2014
Aksana
Another name that is rumored to be released by WWE soon is Aksana. While she is on good terms with management now, the backstage relationship has always been up and down. The belief is that the company views her as being expendable and will more than likely allow her to walk once her contract expires. WWE needs room for newer stars.
April 13, 2014
Goldust
Since WWE introduced quite a bit of new performers on Monday Night Raw this week, rumors have been running rampant about which of the current stars on the main roster are going to be removed to make room. One of the names that has popped up is Goldust, as his contract with WWE is expiring in the near future. The veteran performer signed a short term deal upon his return last year.
April 13, 2014
Mick Foley
There are rumors floating around right now that Mick Foley is looking into the possibility of signing a contract with Ring of Honor.

No word yet on whether or not the company has interest in signing him.
April 12, 2014
Sting
Rumors are heating up that Sting and WWE have finally agreed upon a contract. Negotiations between the two sides have been ongoing for the better part of the past decade. No word yet on what type of role Sting will have with WWE, but there are talks that he will be a television character. A match at Wrestlemania 31 is still a possibility.
April 10, 2014
Prince Devitt
Even though he rejected a nice contract from WWE, Prince Devitt is still being pursued by TNA. The company feels that they are a much better fit for the international star than WWE because they can allow him a much more flexible schedule, one that would enable him to keep working in New Japan throughout the year. Devitt is said to be considering the offer.
April 10, 2014
CM Punk
Since he walked away from the company, CM Punk has now been removed from the upcoming Flintstones movie. To make it easier on the script writers, WWE has decided to replace him with Rey Mysterio, which should make it fairly easy for them to adapt the story line. The belief backstage is that Punk is going to just wait until his contract expires this summer.
April 10, 2014
AJ Styles

April 8, 2014
Ric Flair
For some odd reason, the financial status of certain professional wrestlers remains a hot topic among fans. Many believe that Ric Flair is broke. While he has definitely gone through some hard times with money, the former world heavyweight champion is currently under contract to WWE. Since he has been working for them, he is receiving income on a regular basis.
April 8, 2014
David Otunga
Since he had not been seen on Monday Night Raw in quite some time, a lot of fans questioned whether or not David Otunga was under contract with WWE. Those queries were answered last night when Otunga worked the Wrestlemania 30 battle royal. It was a reward from the company for his work as an ambassador. Otunga routinely makes appearances for WWE still.
April 7, 2014
Ezekiel Jackson
Some bad news for those of you that have been waiting for Ezekiel Jackson to return to the main roster. He is no longer with WWE. Jackson revealed that his contract with the company expired over the weekend. Management was not interested in signing him to a new deal, as they would much rather focus on developing a new person instead.
April 7, 2014
Eric Young
Rumors have it that people backstage in WWE are amused by the fact that TNA put their world heavyweight championship around the waist of Eric Young. It is not so much a shot at Young, as many in the industry feel that he is a good worker and a nice person. The ridicule is more about how TNA went about with the story line of crowning him as champion.
April 19, 2014
Eric Young
Since he is now the TNA World Heavyweight Championship, Eric Young is being given a bit of a gimmick change, as management wants to move him further away from the comedic character that he has portraying over the years. TNA wants fans to believe that Young is a credible champion. His Monster's Ball match against Abyss on Impact Wrestling was to aid that.
April 19, 2014
Eric Young
Rumors have it that another reason why TNA gave the world heavyweight championship to Eric Young was to keep him from joining Jeff Jarrett in Global Force Wrestling. Young and Jarrett have a long history together, and they remain on very good terms. Since he is a very good worker and well liked backstage, TNA would much rather he stay with them long term.
April 18, 2014
Brutus Magnus
If TNA decides to keep the belt on Eric Young for the long term, an idea which is being tossed around backstage because of his marketing value at the moment, then management is going to push Bobby Roode up as a challenger for the world heavyweight championship. There are still talks of Brutus Magnus recapturing the belt at TNA Sacrifice 2014.

Eric Young
While fans are shocked that Eric Young has captured the TNA World Heavyweight Championship, there are actually a couple of reasons why management went this route. For starters, they wanted to reward Young for his years of loyalty to the company. Secondly, they want to capitalize a bit on his mainstream success as of late.

April 11, 2014
Brutus Magnus
In an extremely shocking bit of news, Eric Young has defeated Brutus Magnus to become the new TNA World Heavyweight Champion. He had earned himself a title shot at the beginning of Impact Wrestling, where Young won a gauntlet match. Instead of waiting for the title shot, he demanded it on the same night. A piledriver sealed the pin fall victory for Young.
April 10, 2014
Kurt Angle
Since Kurt Angle is now injured and requires surgery, the match against Ethan Carter at TNA Lockdown 2014 has been canceled. However, Carter has now confirmed through Twitter that he will indeed be working the pay per view still. No word on who the replacement opponent may be at this time. An impromptu match with Eric Young is a possibility.
