Fandango
At a live event in Texas over the weekend, Darren Young might have suffered some sort of injury. His match with Fandango was extremely short, and the ending was awkward, as Young was counted out after delivering a flying ax handle. Agents came out to the ringside area to check on Young and helped him limp backstage.

Fandango
Since Santino Marella was not on hand at the WWE live event in Corpus Christi, Dolph Ziggler was chosen as his replacement, teaming up with Emma to beat Fandango and Summer Rae in a mixed tag team match. No word yet on why Marella was absent, but this does not appear to be a permanent change in the story line.
March 18, 2014
Randy Orton
In a rather interesting move, WWE gave Roman Reigns a clean victory over Randy Orton during a live event in Saudi Arabia. While some will dismiss it because it was not televised, management generally does not allow performers to go over their main event stars, even at house shows. This solidifies the rumors that WWE is pushing Reigns towards the top of the scene.
April 20, 2014
Christopher Daniels
Earlier this week, Seiya Sanada successfully defended the TNA X Division Championship against Christopher Daniels at a Wrestle-1 live event in Japan. TNA loves the idea of their championship being defended overseas, as it does give it more credibility with certain fans. Expect a couple of more performers to be sent to Japan to work matches.
April 19, 2014
Cody Rhodes
In an interesting move, WWE had Dean Ambrose defend the United States Heavyweight Championship at a live event in Saudi Arabia this week. He successfully retained the belt in a fatal four way that consisted of Cody Rhodes, Kofi Kingston and Dolph Ziggler. Ambrose has rarely been allowed to defend the US title over the last couple of months.
April 18, 2014
Darren Young
Days after disputing internet reports about his injury, it has now been revealed that Darren Young has suffered a torn ACL, which will keep him on the sidelines for the remainder of the year. The injury took place at a WWE live event last Saturday night. Since Young wasn't being pushed on television, management does not have to change much.
April 16, 2014
Antonio Cesaro
Even though Conor OBrian and Rick Victor received a lousy reaction from WWE fans at a live event last month in New York City, management still believes in them. Rumors have it that the Ascension could be brought up to the main roster in the coming weeks. The two of them could be utilized as replacements for Jack Swagger and Antonio Cesaro in the tag team division.
April 14, 2014
Antonio Cesaro
Since he split with Jack Swagger and Zeb Colter, many fans are under the impression that Antonio Cesaro is doing a face turn. WWE is currently planning on keeping him a heel, as Paul Heyman functions a lot better in that role. Cesaro worked as a heel against Dolph Ziggler at a live event in Texas over the weekend. WWE might be persuaded to change their minds down the line because of his growing popularity, however.
April 13, 2014
Samoa Joe
One of the more notable absence on Impact Wrestling this week was Samoa Joe. Many believed that he would have been a part of that gauntlet match to determine a new contender for the TNA title. However, it has now been revealed that Joe was unable to work the show because he suffered a concussion at a live event in Nebraska a couple of weeks ago.
April 12, 2014
Brie Bella
Several WWE stars flew into Arizona on Thursday to attend the wedding of Daniel Bryan and Brie Bella. The event is being held in Sedona. A lot of the performers are able to be in attendance because WWE is not running a live event today. Several of the stars are heading out immediately to Texas to work a house show in Hidalgo on Saturday night.
April 11, 2014
AJ Lee
Since management is firmly behind her at the moment, there have been rumors about Naomi Knight possibly winning the WWE Divas Championship at Wrestlemania 30. That is looking to be more of a possibility after this weekend, as Naomi was booked in a win over AJ Lee at a live event. Some feel that the company was testing the audience reaction to such a move.
March 24, 2014
Brodus Clay
After spending some time down at the WWE Performance Center, Brodus Clay is now back on the road. He worked a live event over the weekend in Atlantic City, where he did a quick dance off segment with the Great Khali, another performer who has been off the road for a couple of weeks. No word on a television return for Clay yet.
March 24, 2014
Dolph Ziggler
In a rather interesting bit of news, WWE did a live event in Long Island this weekend, and they purposely opted not to use Zack Ryder, the hometown hero. In what could be a show of defiance towards management, Dolph Ziggler did an in ring tribute to Zack Ryder during his match by doing a couple of his Ryder's signature moves.
March 24, 2014
Seiki Yoshioka
In an attempt to give the championship a little more prestige, Seiya Sanada defended the TNA X Division Championship in Japan this week. He scored a victory over Seiki Yoshioka at a Wrestle-1 live event. Sanada is expected to return to the United States to work a couple of more episodes of Impact Wrestling soon.
March 23, 2014
Batista
It looks like the incident in Winnipeg involving Batista and a radio DJ was not staged after all. Cam Carson has been fired by Power 97, who sponsored the live event. He was heavily intoxicated and was legitimately thrown out by WWE security for getting into an argument with Batista. A woman is also claiming that her 11 year old son was injured by the DJ that night.
March 21, 2014
Dixie Carter
Earlier this month, it was revealed that Slammiversary 2014 is being held in the Dallas area this year. Dixie Carter and her staff are a bit concerned about that choice now, as the more popular WWE recently was only able to draw in 5000 fans to a live event in the city last weekend. Interest in wrestling might just be low in that area.
March 21, 2014
Damien Sandow
Over the weekend, Mark Henry worked a live event for WWE in Austin, where he currently lives. He received a nice reaction from the audience and was given a victory over Damien Sandow. Afterwards, he grabbed the microphone and addressed the audience. Henry informed the fans that the retirement rumors regarding him are false. The belief is that it was done to drum up support for the former world heavyweight champion.
March 16, 2014
Alicia Fox
With so much mystery surrounding her absence over the last several months, Layla El has finally made her return to WWE over the weekend at a live event in Waco. She teamed up with Alicia Fox to defeat Natalya Neidhart and Eva Marie in a tag team match. Some were under the belief that she would never be healthy enough to wrestle again, but that has now been proven false.
March 16, 2014
Alberto Del Rio
Those that are hoping to see the two of them being pushed again are in luck, as Dolph Ziggler and Alberto Del Rio really impressed WWE officials over the weekend thanks to their superb match at the big live event in Madison Square Garden. The audience reacted extremely well, and there were several "This is awesome!" chants throughout the bout.
March 10, 2014
Justin Gabriel
In a rather interesting move, WWE had Ryback come out to interfere in the match between Miz and Justin Gabriel during the big live event at Madison Square Garden this weekend. Ryback assaulted both performers, but they were able to counter him. Miz and Gabriel both hit their finishing move on Ryback to the enjoyment of the audience.
March 10, 2014
Conor OBrian
Since management wanted to test out the developmental wrestlers to see if they were ready to be called up to the main roster, the Ascension, a tag team consisting of Conor OBrian and Rick Victor, were given a match against Diego and Fernando at the big live event in New York City this weekend. WWE even paired Vickie Guerrero up with them. Unfortunately, though, the crowd was silent and indifferent towards the duo, thus hurting their chances of being promoted.
March 9, 2014
Batista
While working a live event for WWE in Winnipeg this week, Batista was involved in a physical altercation with a fan at ring side. There was yelling, shoving and possibly punching that took place. Some are under the belief that it may have been a work since the fan was a DJ with a radio station that was the main local sponsor for the event.
March 8, 2014
Summer Rae
Even though her character was dumped by Fandango in the story line, do not expect a face turn for Summer Rae. The blonde diva will be working as a heel when she returns to WWE after filming her parts in the upcoming Marine sequel. Summer will also be utilized more as a wrestler this time around as opposed to being a side character.
April 17, 2014
Alexander Rusev
A video of Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns working a handicap match against Alberto Del Rio, Alexander Rusev, Wade Barrett, Curtis Axel, Drew McIntyre, Fandango, Heath Slater, Jack Swagger, Jinder Mahal, Titus ONeil and Ryback on Monday Night Raw.
April 17, 2014
Miz
One of the big reasons why WWE put Layla El with Fandango is because Summer Rae is taking a couple of weeks off of television to film a sequel to the Marine with the Miz. WWE wanted to keep Fandango on television, but they did not feel that his act would be nearly as popular without a female companion. Thus, Layla was chosen to take over the role.
April 17, 2014
Layla El
Since Summer Rae is going to be pushed as a singles star now, WWE opted to split her up from Fandango, who sold the story line through his Twitter account. As many saw on Smackdown this week, Summer Rae has been replaced with Layla El, who actually has experience as a dancer. WWE has been trying to find a role for Layla since her return.
April 12, 2014
Summer Rae
Despite being a pretty popular act, WWE has decided to split up Summer Rae and Fandango, who has been selling the story line through social media over the past couple of days. Fandango is being paired with another person soon, as his act needs a female dancer. Summer Rae will be utilized as more of an in ring performer with the rest of the Total Divas cast.
April 10, 2014
Fandango
During a recent interview, Chris Jericho revealed that he would not return for Wrestlemania 30 unless WWE had a prominent spot for him on the card. He did not appear to pleased to be in the under card match against Fandango, a performer who is now floundering around, last year. Jericho reiterated that he does not want to just be handed a spot, however.
April 1, 2014
Cody Rhodes
In a sign that they are still in the dog house with management, Cody Rhodes and Goldust were removed from the Hulu version of Monday Night Raw this week. Their match against Damien Sandow and Fandango, two guys who normally do not team up together, was considered a throwaway segment and not deemed important enough for rebroadcast.
April 1, 2014
Fandango
As an April Fool's Day joke, WWE promoted that they have just released photos for the steamiest edition of Day Off, which normally features divas look sexy and comfortable outside of the arena. Instead, they opted to utilize Fandango, and this picture of him is hilarious.
April 1, 2014
Zack Ryder
WWE has announced that the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal will consists of Alberto Del Rio, Big E Langston, Big Show, Brodus Clay, Christian, Cody Rhodes, Damien Sandow, Darren Young, Dolph Ziggler, Drew McIntyre, Fandango, Goldust, Great Khali, Heath Slater, Jinder Mahal, Justin Gabriel, Kofi Kingston, Mark Henry, Miz, R Truth, Rey Mysterio, Santino Marella, Sheamus, Sin Cara, Titus ONeil and Zack Ryder. There are also four spots available for last minute entrants.
March 25, 2014
Curt Hawkins
As many of you already know by now, Curt Hawkins recently opened up his own wrestling school. It now appears that he has the support of several WWE stars, as Fandango and Wade Barrett took the time to visit the new facility. Other stars are expected to drop by as well. Hawkins has been said to be a very well liked performer backstage.
March 24, 2014
Fandango
There are a lot of rumors floating around that Summer Rae is dating Fandango right now. Nothing has been confirmed, so it is merely speculations right now. The WWE diva did have a boyfriend not too long ago, but it is uncertain if she is still involved in a relationship with that guy any more. WWE may reveal her status on an upcoming episode of Total Divas.
March 22, 2014
Brie Bella
Since Wrestlemania is right around the corner, WWE has decided to tape a commercial in New Orleans to promote the pay per view. Fandango, Summer Rae, Kofi Kingston, Sheamus, Big Show, Nikki Bella and Brie Bella are all in town for the shoot. There are also reports that Darren Young might be a part of the cast as well, but that is unconfirmed.
March 22, 2014
Cody Rhodes
On Monday Night Raw this week, Goldust and Fandango worked a singles match, where Cody Rhodes and Summer Rae were both at ringside. An accident took place in the ring, and Goldust ended up being busted open and needing a couple of stitches to close. The veteran WWE star was quite frustrated backstage about the incident.
March 21, 2014
Andre the Giant
Last year, Fandango was given a victory over Chris Jericho at the event. His stock in WWE has dropped tremendously since then. Since he is still attached to Summer Rae, management wanted to try to get Fandango involved at Wrestlemania 30. They now have, as the dancing superstar has been officially added to the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal.
March 15, 2014
CM Punk
During a recent interview with Digital Spy, Fandango was asked about CM Punk and whether or not the former WWE heavyweight champion would return to the company. Fandango deftly avoided the question by stating that he anyone could make their return at any time. He listed off the Undertaker, Brock Lesnar and Chris Jericho as examples.
March 12, 2014
Fandango
"It really took me a month or two after for it to set in that I debuted at Wrestlemania and beat Lionheart Chris Jericho, a guy I grew up watching, and who was one of the reasons I got into the wrestling business - a huge influence for me - and he helped me a lot. He helped me build the Fandango character by working with me leading up to Wrestlemania. It was overwhelming and unbelievable and it happened in the blink of an eye." - Fandango talks about working with Chris Jericho
March 9, 2014
Hulk Hogan
A picture of Hulk Hogan and Fandango backstage at Monday Night Raw. WWE had the legendary former world heavyweight champion posing with several of the performers, so that they can promote his return as being a bit of a dream for the wrestlers.
March 3, 2014
Santino Marella
While they have been given two televised matches on Monday Night Raw this month, management does not view the Santino Marella and Fandango feud as anything relevant. The two of them are just there to help put Summer Rae and Emma over. There is very little to no chance that Marella and Fandango will get to take this feud to a pay per view.
February 26, 2014
Summer Rae
It has almost been a year now since he was given a big Wrestlemania win over Chris Jericho, and it seems that WWE has given up on Fandango becoming a big star. As of now, he is viewed as a mid card filler, who is receiving consistent television time because management wants to feature Summer Rae before her Total Divas debut.
February 19, 2014
Fandango
"Something that's interesting with season two of Total Divas, Fandango and I's relationship has been on the surface level, as far as WWE programming with Monday Night Raw, Main Event, Friday Night SmackDown. You see us on camera and that's about it. As far as backstage, not a lot of people know about our relationship. It's great that people are going to see behind the scenes with Fandango and I, something that's never been explored before." - Summer Rae discussion backstage situation
