Ezekiel Jackson
A familiar face showed up on Impact Wrestling not too long ago. Ezekiel Jackson made his debut for TNA. However, it is simply a temporary stint for the big man. The belief is that Jackson signed on for a couple of appearances in order to increase his name value with independent wrestling promoters. It improves your chances of being signed when you are spotted on a nationally televised show.

Ezekiel Jackson
There were rumors floating around recently that Ezekiel Jackson was signed to a contract by TNA. That has turned out to be false, as the company does not currently have any long term plans for the former WWE star. There is a chance that Dixie Carter might bring him in here and there, but nothing permanent has been discussed. Jackson is also rumored to be a candidate to join Jeff Jarrett in Global Force Wrestling.

Ezekiel Jackson
Even though WWE refused to bring him back to the main roster after he recovered from his injuries, Ezekiel Jackson still had some value to the wrestling industry. Rumors surfaced that Jeff Jarrett was interested in bringing him on board with Global Force Wrestling, but word coming out of TNA is that the company is close to finalizing a contract with Jackson.

Ezekiel Jackson
Now that he has been official released by WWE after spending months waiting in developmental, Ezekiel Jackson joins the long list of names of performers who are rumored to be joining Jeff Jarrett in his new Global Force Wrestling promotion. While Jackson isn't a big star, he does have some name value left, which would help GFW draw in a couple of people.

Ezekiel Jackson
There are those in the company that still believe that Vince McMahon is keeping wrestlers on the roster because of Linda McMahon and her ongoing political career. Guys like Evan Bourne, Ezekiel Jackson, Hunico, JTG and Yoshi Tatsu are still on the contract and receiving a salary from the company despite not doing much.

November 1, 2013
Brian Kendrick
Even though it has been several years since the two of them worked together in WWE, Brian Kendrick and Ezekiel Jackson are reuniting on the independent wrestling circuit. The duo has announced that they are available as a package for promoters to book. The feeling within the industry is that the duo should still be able to draw in a good amount of money since they have more name value than the typical wrestler on the indies.

Ezekiel Jackson
In a rather interesting revelation, Ezekiel Jackson has publicly stated that WWE has yet to contact him about his release. He received a letter a couple of months before his contract expired, but no one backstage has bothered to call him since the deal ended in April. It's customary to make communication with the wrestlers after they have been released by the company.
June 19, 2014
Jeff Jarrett
A fan on Twitter recently asked Ezekiel Jackson if he would be interested in working with Jeff Jarrett in his new Global Force Wrestling promotion, and the recently released WWE star stated that if the opportunity were to arise, he would definitely be interested. Jackson spent several frustrating months on the sidelines with WWE and has been itching to get back on television.

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
JTG
In a rather interesting bit of news on two performers that have not been seen in WWE in a while, JTG and Ezekiel Jackson have been working out together. The former Cryme Tyme member posted on Twitter that he goes jogging with Jackson every morning. The two of them are still under contract to WWE, but there are no plans to utilize them any time soon.
March 23, 2014
Tyler Reks
When he left WWE, Tyler Reks made it abundantly clear that he was doing so because he wanted to focus on other business opportunities. He is launching one of those soon in BodySpartan.com, a website dedicated to fitness. Among his business partners are current WWE stars JTG and Ezekiel Jackson, both of whom are on the roster but seldom used.

Justin Gabriel
Santino Marella and Vladimir Kozlov walked into Elimination Chamber 2011 as the WWE Tag Team Champions, but they would walk away without the gold, as Justin Gabriel and Heath Slater, representing the Corre, were victorious in their match. Ezekiel Jackson and Tamina Snuka were both at ringside.
February 20, 2011
Kofi Kingston

Alberto Del Rio won Royal Rumble 2011 by last eliminating Santino Marella. Other participants in the match include Alex Riley, Big Show, Booker T, Bray Wyatt, Chavo Guerrero, Chris Masters, CM Punk, Curtis Axel, Daniel Bryan, David Otunga, Dolph Ziggler, Drew McIntyre, Ezekiel Jackson, Great Khali, Heath Slater, Hornswoggle, Jack Swagger, John Cena, John Morrison, JTG, Justin Gabriel, Kane, Kevin Nash, Kofi Kingston, Mark Henry, Mason Ryan, R Truth, Randy Orton, Rey Mysterio, Sheamus, Ted DiBiase, Tyler Reks, Tyson Kidd, Vladimiz Kozlov, Wade Barrett, William Regal, Yoshi Tatsu and Zack Ryder.

January 30, 2011
Rey Mysterio
The relationship between WWE and Rey Mysterio might be worse than what a lot of us already thought. Reports have surfaced that the company and the popular masked performer are not communicating with one another nowadays. Many were under the belief that a discussion would be had when Mysterio made a taped appearance at TripleMania for AAA. Apparently, WWE is letting that issue slide for the time being, as lawyers have yet to get involved.
August 28, 2014
Bray Wyatt
Those that watched Monday Night Raw last week saw John Cena being booked dominantly against Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan. It has now been revealed that Vince McMahon was the person behind all of that. Someone backstage had informed McMahon that a lot of WWE fans were mocking Cena for being dominated, so McMahon has decided to build Cena back up again.
August 28, 2014
Davey Richards
Could Davey Richards and Eddie Edwards be gone from TNA as quickly as they came in? That's the speculation going around right now, as it has been revealed that the contract for the Wolves expire at the end of this year. Management does have the option of extending the deal for another year, but a lot of people are skeptical since the company has been letting a lot of people walk over the last couple of months.
August 28, 2014
Ashley Flair
There are rumors floating around that a title change could be taking place in WWE NXT very soon. Bayley might be given the women's title during the middle part of September. Reports are floating around that Ashley Flair is on the verge of being given a promotion to the main roster in about a month, so she would need to drop the belt to someone else in developmental.
August 28, 2014
Curtis Axel
Since Ryback is on the shelf for a couple of weeks, it will be interesting to see what WWE does with Curtis Axel. There were already plans being discussed a couple of weeks ago to split up the tag team, so it should come as no surprise if management opted to use the injury as an excuse to accelerate those plans. WWE no longer believes that Axel is worthy of being a top level guy, but they do believe he can still be a useful member of the roster.
August 27, 2014
Wade Barrett
Patience isn't always a virtue in WWE. Wade Barrett was initially told by doctors that he would not be able to make his return to the ring until December. However, the company has a big tour of Europe in November. Since Barrett is viewed as a bit of a draw on that continent, WWE has started advertising his appearances. The belief is that Barrett will rush back from the injury to work those shows.
August 27, 2014
Big Show
After witnessing Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan being utilized as pawns in the feud between John Cena and Brock Lesnar on Monday Night Raw, a lot of fans voiced their complaints towards WWE. It is now being said that management actually had a different plan that evening for Wyatt. He was supposed to have been booked strong by attacking Big Show and Mark Henry during the closing segment. Instead, WWE changed their minds and decided to put Cena and Lesnar over instead.
August 27, 2014
Big E Langston
A lot of fans are under the assumption that the stable consisting of Xavier Woods, Kofi Kingston and Big E Langston has been disbanded. It's hard to blame them for thinking that because WWE has removed them from television over the last couple of weeks. However, rumors are floating around that the trio has been informed by management that there are still plans in place for them to work as a group in the future. The creative department simply has not figured out a good way of using them.
August 27, 2014
Dean Ambrose
A Shield reunion could be taking place as soon as Night of Champions 2014. Unfortunately, though, the trio will not be on the same side. There are talks now that instead of doing a singles match between Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns, WWE could opt to go with a tag team match. Dean Ambrose would make his return and team up with Reigns against the team of Rollins and Kane.
August 26, 2014
Batista
Initially, the belief was that Batista would make a return to WWE after he was done promoting Guardians of the Galaxy. However, reports are now surfacing that he could be completely done with professional wrestling. The belief is that the movie studios are against the idea of him risking injuries by being an in ring performer again. Batista could have no choice but to comply since he wants his career in Hollywood to keep growing.
August 26, 2014
Dixie Carter
Reports have surfaced that the network currently interested in bringing TNA on board is Velocity. The channel is available in approximately 52 million households right now. Velocity is aimed at males between the ages of 25 and 54, which is beneficial to Dixie Carter and company because that is similar to the audience that Spike targets. No word yet on how far along the negotiations are at the moment.
August 25, 2014
Zack Ryder
There might be some backstage heat towards Zack Ryder. After working the live events this week for the company, he noted that he was flying back to New York. He also stated that he was not sick, which has led many fans to believe that this involves some sort of disciplinarian issues. WWE usually flies in performers for Monday Night Raw and Smackdown, even if they're not being utilized on television.
August 25, 2014
Dolph Ziggler
Rumors are floating around right now that Miz may have suffered a concussion. The Intercontinental Champion took a very stiff kick to the face from Dolph Ziggler in a match in Fresno. Afterwards, he appeared to be quite dazed and requested the assistance of a trainer to help get backstage. WWE has yet to issue an official statement, so we will have to wait until Monday Night Raw for further clues.
August 25, 2014
Velvet Sky
There are rumors floating around right now that Velvet Sky is going to be leaving TNA soon. However, the speculations stem from an overreaction to something that might really be insignificant. The Knockout changed her profile biography on Twitter. She removed TNA from there and replaced it with other words, as there is a word limit set on the biography. As of right now, her departure from the company is far from confirmed.
August 25, 2014
Bully Ray
Reports have surfaced that the contract between Bully Ray and TNA has now officially expired. The two sides had been trying to negotiate a new deal, but financial terms could not be met. The former world heavyweight champion is still listed on the official roster page on the TNA website. The belief is that the company might wait until a new television deal has been signed before renegotiating with some of the bigger stars.
August 25, 2014
Rey Mysterio
While it appears that he is still under contract to WWE, it does not seem like the company is going to be bringing Rey Mysterio back to television, even after his hand injury heals. The two sides are greatly at odds right now, and it seems like management is more concerned about preventing him from going to another company at this point. A reconciliation seems unlikely right now.
August 24, 2014
Yoshi Tatsu
When Yoshi Tatsu was given a release by WWE, he was devastated by it because he had been working so hard in developmental to get back to the main roster. However, he is not one to give up on a wrestling career. Reports have surfaced that he will be heading back overseas to sign a contract with New Japan after he finishes up his commitment on the independent circuit.
August 24, 2014
Dixie Carter
Some interesting rumors have popped up about TNA and their attempt to get a new television contract for Impact Wrestling. It appears that Dixie Carter is not panicking because the company has another network lined up. It is being said that it is not a major one, but it should enable TNA to remain available nationally, which is something that the company desperately needs.
August 24, 2014
Big E Langston
There might be some good news for those of you that were excited about the new stable of Xavier Woods, Kofi Kingston and Big E Langston. Management had apparently decided to split up the group because they were taken off of television, but at a recent live event, the stable was utilized once again. WWE could be testing out the audience to see if the trio can be worth saving.
August 23, 2014
Rosa Mendes
There are speculations right now that Rosa Mendes could be on the receiving end of a push from WWE. She recently stated in an interview that she has never won a singles match via pin fall on television before. The belief is that she is planting the seeds for an underdog story line. Rosa chasing the championship could be a focal point on Total Divas.
