Sean Waltman
"I got a sense he wasn't well. It was sad to me. He was kind of hunched over. He used to have such great posture. You just had this sense that he wasn't well. But he was in great spirits. He came up to (other wrestlers) and gave them hugs." - Sean Waltman discusses the health of the Ultimate Warrior during Wrestlemania 30 weekend
April 11, 2014
Bret Hart
"He seemed good, he seemed happy for sure. I had a sense his health wasn't great. He seemed a little frail. He seemed a little less indestructible than he used to be. I don't think it would be a surprise to know he took steroids for a long time and I don't know if he ever stopped." - Bret Hart discusses steroid use by the Ultimate Warrior

Billy Gunn
The Usos were given the tag team championship recently, so that WWE could help to control the hostile audience at Monday Night Raw.

February 3, 2014
CM Punk

"So Punk allegedly walked out & quit WWE. Interesting. It's impossible 2 understand the toll that job can have on you-unless you've lived it. A 'screw you' from Punk? NO. Punk's gotta prioritize his own sanity & health. Sometimes WWE isn't conducive to those two things. From my experience- When you're in constant physical pain, frustrated the majority of the time, & resent what u love, things have to change."

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
Erick Rowan
There is still a strong push within WWE to add Luke Harper and Erick Rowan to the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal match, as many feel that they have done a good job throughout the past several months. However, some in management feel that being involved in the match with John Cena and Bray Wyatt at Wrestlemania 30 is enough of a reward for them.
April 4, 2014

March 20, 2014
Bray Wyatt
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.

March 18, 2014
Erick Rowan
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
John Cena
There are still those within the company that are pushing for Erick Rowan and Luke Harper to be given a spot on the Wrestlemania 30 card. The two of them have put in a good amount of work over the last couple of months, so many feel that they deserve to work the show. Some are afraid that they will simply be in the shadows of Bray Wyatt, who is scheduled for a huge match against John Cena.
March 11, 2014
Roman Reigns
Initially, there were plans to make Wrestlemania 30 a huge night for Roman Reigns, but as of late, it appears that WWE is struggling backstage with how to actually pull that off.

February 26, 2014
Christian
As predicted by many, Randy Orton walked away from Elimination Chamber 2014 with the WWE Championship. Sheamus, Christian and Antonio Cesaro were the first eliminated.

February 23, 2014
Luke Harper
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. Some are concerned that these two guys might be left behind if management were to ever split up the act and let Wyatt be a single act.
February 22, 2014
John Cena
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. There are plans backstage to further that at Elimination Chamber 2014, where it is being heavily rumored that Luke Harper and Erick Rowan will be the ones to elimination Cena from the main event.
February 20, 2014
Luke Harper
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. WWE feels that the stable itself is pretty popular with the crowd, so the entire group will be on the receiving end of a push.
February 12, 2014
Bray Wyatt

Since the start, Bray Wyatt has done all of the talking to the Wyatt Family. Luke Harper and Erick Rowan generally just stand to the side and in the background during the interview segments. On Smackdown this week, though, Harper actually says a few words.
