Erick Rowan
While rumors of a Nation of Domination stable are still floating around, there are also talks that WWE could simply be building up Kofi Kingston and Big E Langston as a tag team because they need a baby face fodder for Luke Harper and Erick Rowan. Management is seriously considering putting the tag titles on the Wyatt Family, and they're going to need more than Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso as challengers.

However, management changed up their plans once they decided to include a lot of outside interference during the match between Bray Wyatt and John Cena.

Erick Rowan
There are those within WWE that want to figure out a way to push Erick Rowan and Luke Harper a little more, as the feeling right now is that Bray Wyatt is receiving all of the heat from the audience.

February 22, 2014
Erick Rowan
Even though the company has seemingly dropped the story line on television, the feud between John Cena and Bray Wyatt is very much still in the works.

February 20, 2014
Erick Rowan
While it is almost a certainty that Bray Wyatt is going to be receiving a massive push into the main event scene, the belief is that Luke Harper and Erick Rowan will not be left behind as some people have speculated.

October 26, 2013

November 22, 2013
Luke Harper
During Monday Night Raw, a segment aired where Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan attacked Chris Jericho in the locker room. That was actually a trick by WWE, as the footage was filmed at the pay per view on Sunday night. Jericho had actually hopped on a flight to Los Angeles on Monday morning, so that he can begin promotional work for the new Fozzy album.
July 22, 2014
Erick Rowan
While it was still noticeable last night, WWE medical personnel worked fervently last night to repair the black eye on Bray Wyatt before he stepped in front of the cameras. They drained fluids from around his eye to reduce the swelling. Then, makeup artists did as much as they could to hide the darkness. WWE worked around the issue by having Erick Rowan and Luke Harper attacking Chris Jericho in the ring before Wyatt made a brief appearance on the stage.
July 15, 2014
Big E Langston
Rumors about a new Nation of Domination should be heating up again today after results from a WWE live event in Japan has hit the internet. Kofi Kingston and Big E Langston worked together as a tag team during the show in Tokyo. The tandom went up against Luke Harper and Erick Rowan. The widespread speculation is that R Truth and Xavier Woods will be joining Langston and Kingston soon to form the new group.
July 10, 2014
Luke Harper
Since management wanted to fill in some time at WWE Battleground 2014, the decision was made to book Jimmy Uso, Jey Uso, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan into a best of three falls match for the tag team championship. The two teams have produced some good matches for WWE, so management is hoping that they can fill in a good amount of time at the pay per view for them.
July 9, 2014
Luke Harper
Shortly after Chris Jericho made his surprising return on Monday Night Raw, the Wyatt Family provided a surprise of their own when Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan suddenly appeared in the ring to attack the former undisputed champion. When Wyatt was in NXT, Jericho specifically requested to WWE officials to let him work with Wyatt. The belief is that he did so again upon signing a contract to return.
July 1, 2014
Jey Uso
Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso had their biggest challenge to date when Erick Rowan and Luke Harper challenged them for the WWE tag team championship at Money in the Bank 2014. The twin brothers delivered by retaining the belt. The Usos performed a double superplex on Rowan before finishing him off with consecutive flying splashes from the top rope.
June 29, 2014
Jey Uso
Over the weekend, John Cena was injured during his match against Bray Wyatt, who delivered some headbutts that were a bit more stiff than they needed to be. WWE immediately took steps to protect one of their most valuable assets by changing the main event of the following event. Cena was teamed up with Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso in a six man tag team match against Wyatt, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan instead.
June 9, 2014
Luke Harper
Those that watched the latest episode of Monday Night Raw noticed that John Cena was absent. However, the popular WWE star was on hand for the event, as he showed up after the cameras went off the air to work a dark match main event against Bray Wyatt. Cena was declared the winner via disqualification after interference from Luke Harper and Erick Rowan.
May 6, 2014
John Cena
After suffering a loss at the last pay per view, Bray Wyatt needed a victory over John Cena at Extreme Rules 2014, and he got just that. Wyatt received a heavy dose of interference from Luke Harper and Erick Rowan, but Cena still managed to overcome those odds. As Cena was walking out of the cage, a kid showed up and began singing, which provided enough distraction for Wyatt to hit his Sister Abigail finisher and walk out for the victory.
May 4, 2014
Erick Rowan
For a while, there was a push backstage within WWE to push Erick Rowan and Luke Harper a bit more, as many in the company felt that they have been putting on strong efforts when given a chance on television. However, those plans appear to have been dropped, as WWE has decided to use them as peripheral characters in the story line between Bray Wyatt and John Cena.
April 29, 2014
Erick Rowan
A video from Monday Night Raw of John Cena being forced to face Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan in a handicap match. WWE allowed fans to vote on the opponents, and surprisingly enough, they voted for the former heavyweight champion to face three of his foes at the same time.

April 11, 2014
Luke Harper
In a grudge match at Wrestlemania 30, John Cena defeated Bray Wyatt via pin fall after delivering his Attitude Adjustment finishing move. There were some interference attempts by Luke Harper and Erick Rowan, but Cena managed to fend them off. Plenty of story telling in the match, and the level of drama was really high.
April 6, 2014
John Cena
When the picture of the four of them together initially spread across the internet, there was not a lot of details as to why John Cena was standing in the ring united with Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns. It has now been revealed that the four of them teamed up in a dark match main event at the Smackdown taping against Kane, Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan.
March 27, 2014
Erick Rowan
A rapper by the name of Consequences, who happens to be associated with Kanye West, has released a new song called Follow the Buzzards, which was inspired by Bray Wyatt. The WWE star, along with Luke Harper and Erick Rowan, is featured on the album cover, and his theme song is sampled as well.
March 20, 2014
Andre the Giant
WWE is expected to confirm at least 20 of the 30 participants in the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal at Wrestlemania 30. Interestingly enough, neither Erick Rowan nor Luke Harper are on that list. The two of them were expected to be given a match at the pay per view by management, in order to capitalize on the heat that they received by being with Bray Wyatt.
March 20, 2014
Luke Harper
After Monday Night Raw went off the air last night, John Cena told Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan that they stole someone's entrance. Almost immediately, the Undertaker made his way into the arena to attack the Wyatt Family. Cena and Undertaker managed to hit their finishers on Rowan and Harper, but Wyatt himself escaped.
March 18, 2014
Luke Harper
Initially, Luke Harper was scheduled to work a match against John Cena at Monday Night Raw. A new announcement was made shortly before the start of the show, and Erick Rowan was chosen as a replacement in the match. No word yet on why WWE made the switch. Harper might still get his match next week, as management wants to keep Bray Wyatt away from Cena before Wrestlemania 30.
March 11, 2014
Erick Rowan
During the Smackdown taping, it was announced that there would be a big Elimination Chamber 2014 rematch on Monday Night Raw featuring Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan taking on Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose. The belief is that this is being done to further the friction between Ambrose and Reigns.
February 26, 2014
Bo Dallas
When Bo Dallas was defeated by R Truth on Monday Night Raw this week, more than a few eyebrows were raised because the streak was ended in such an irrelevant manner. Rumors are floating around now that WWE opted to do this because they did not want to have another streak in the company now that Brock Lesnar has made his return. Management wants the streak emphasis to be on Lesnar beating Undertaker at Wrestlemania 30.
July 30, 2014
Vince McMahon
While the official WWE Network subscribers count will not be revealed until tomorrow, there are already speculations that the company will be doing a massive layoff due to what is predicted to be lower than expected numbers. It is being said that Vince McMahon will be releasing close to ten percent of his workforce in an attempt to appease the investors.
July 30, 2014
Jeff Jarrett
Since his contract with WWE has now officially ended, rumors about Jim Ross and his future in professional wrestling have started heating up again. Since the longtime commentator does not want to replace Taz or Mike Tenay in TNA, much of the speculations has been geared towards him joining up with Jeff Jarrett in Global Force Wrestling. Interest within the industry towards the new promotion has grown since Jarrett has been able to secure several deals across the globe.
July 29, 2014
Dixie Carter
Rumors are floating around right now that Vince McMahon would be interested in purchasing the TNA library to add to his WWE Network. It could simply just be all speculation right now, as the company has been focused on cutting back their spending because of how much money has been lost over the last several months. Obviously, no negotiations have taken place since Dixie Carter is still trying to find a new television deal for Impact Wrestling.
July 29, 2014
Alexander Rusev
An idea being discussed for Summerslam 2014 right now is to do a flag match between Jack Swagger and Alexander Rusev. WWE is trying to keep this program going for a bit longer because they don't have a lot of other people that Rusev can work with. By doing a flag match, Swagger can win without Rusev being pinned. That would enable WWE to extend the feud for at least another month.
July 29, 2014
Big E Langston
Rumors are floating around that WWE really does not have all their plans in place for that new stable featuring Xavier Woods, Kofi Kingston and Big E Langston. Several names, including R Truth, Titus ONeil and Mark Henry, have been mentioned as possible candidates to join the group, but none of that has been solidified. For the time being, the trio will continue to be vague on television.
July 29, 2014
Big E Langston
An interesting idea being floated around in WWE has Titus ONeil joining the stable that consists of Xavier Woods, Kofi Kingston and Big E Langston. Management really likes ONeil, as evident by the fact that he routinely gets sent out on public appearances for the company, but they do not believe that he can be pushed as a singles performer. Putting him in a stable helps to alleviate some of those concerns.
July 28, 2014
Bray Wyatt
Rumors are floating around right now that Chris Jericho is done with WWE after he finishes up his feud with Bray Wyatt. The return was designed to be a short term thing, as the former undisputed champion still has other business ventures that he wants to focus on. There are talks that Jericho could be convinced to stick around in WWE a bit longer if an interesting program can be created for him.
July 28, 2014
Cameron
It looks like WWE will be utilizing the relationship between Cameron and her boyfriend a bit more during the next season of Total Divas. The belief is that something drastic will happen, where the couple will either break up or do a wedding. The heel turn and split from Naomi Knight was designed to put more attention into her character on the reality television show next season.
July 28, 2014
Steve Austin
Earlier in the month, Steve Austin made a comment about WWE being too scripted for his taste. While those comments would surely bring backstage heat on one of their mid card performers, it is being said that there is absolutely no heat towards Austin, as management knows that they might need him for business down the line.
July 28, 2014
Damien Sandow
Since he has shown a willingness to not only do what is asked of him but to actually put in great effort in doing so, Damien Sandow has been earning a good amount of praise backstage by his peers in WWE. They are impressed by the fact that he has not grown frustrated with the new gimmick. Unfortunately for Sandow, though, management does not feel that he deserves a real push at the moment.
July 28, 2014
Miz
There are still plans being discussed backstage in WWE to unify the United States Heavyweight Championship and the Intercontinental Championship in the near future. If management decides to go through with it, then Miz is the more likely candidate to hold the unified belt because he has a lot more momentum than Sheamus at this point in time.
July 28, 2014
Alexander Rusev
Alexander Rusev is posing a considerable problem for the WWE creative department nowadays. The staff was instructed to push him up the ladder, but they are now running out of options. His program with Jack Swagger has either ended or will end soon. Rusev cannot be placed into a program with someone lower on the card, and it's too soon for him to work against John Cena. Sheamus has been named as a possible opponent to help Rusev kill time.
July 27, 2014
Justin Gabriel
While he is a reliable performer who does not cause trouble backstage, Justin Gabriel was one of the candidates to be on the receiving end of a release from WWE when the company was doing budget cuts. He apparently has survived the cuts and will remain with the company for the time being. It is interesting to note that Gabriel has not been utilized on Monday Night Raw since last September.
July 27, 2014
Alex Riley
Since WWE was doing budget cuts left and right in order to reduce the millions of dollars that they're losing this year, several names were mentioned as possible candidates for a release. Alex Riley was once rumored to be someone on the chopping board, but it looks like the commentator has made the cut. Unless WWE decides to get rid of the kickoff shows, Riley should remain with the company.
July 26, 2014
Brock Lesnar
Rumors are swirling that the Undertaker was not supposed to have lost to Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania 30, thanks to some comments made by former WWE stars. Some are saying that he did not kick out of the pin attempt because he was legitimately knocked out from the move. Since the referees are instructed to go through with the count, there is a possibility that it may be true.
July 26, 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
Big E Langston
There are those backstage in WWE that are skeptical of the idea of doing a heel turn for Kofi Kingston, who has long been regarded as the ultimate baby face. Since he does a lot of the charity work for the company, some are afraid that it will affect that aspect of his job as well. There are rumors floating around that WWE does not have finalized plans for the new stable that also consists of Xavier Woods and Big E Langston.
July 26, 2014
Josh Mathews
Josh Mathews might not be out of a job for too long. Rumors are floating around that TNA is very close to signing him to a contract. When he was backstage at Impact Wrestling, he did not seem like a typical visitor, as management was introducing him to people backstage. The belief is that he would be a valuable asset since he understands a lot about the production in WWE.
July 25, 2014
Rey Mysterio
A couple of months ago, Rey Mysterio was under the belief that his tenure with WWE was over when his contract expired. However, the company enacted a clause in the deal that enabled them to extend the partnership because the masked performer missed quite a bit of dates. Apparently, he is not too happy about that, as reports have surfaced that Mysterio has stopped cashing his checks in what seems to be an attempt to get out of the deal.
July 24, 2014
