Goldberg
"I actually got to meet him at a signing probably about 15 years ago. It was a really pleasant experience. He was really polite. It really demonstrated to me that you can spend 20 or 30 seconds with a fan and you can leave a lasting impression." - Big E Langston reveals that he met Goldberg years ago

Bray Wyatt
A black eye usually is not something to be proud of. It is, however, when you're a lifelong wrestling fan being punched by one of the greatest performers that the industry has ever seen. Bray Wyatt received a black eye during a big live event at Madison Square Garden in New York City over the weeken due to an errant punch by Ric Flair. Reports are stating that the incident happened because Flair forgot that he was wearing his hall of fame ring. There is said to be no backstage heat between the two due to the injury.

Triple H
With his career in MMA coming to a close soon, Rashad Evans wants to make the jump from UFC to WWE. Rumors are floating around right now that he has already contacted WWE to gauge their interest in signing him. Vince McMahon is not a huge fan of MMA, but he does know that UFC fighters have name value. Triple H is reportedly said to be interested in bringing Evans on board.
July 10, 2014
John Morrison
If you're a fan of John Morrison, now is a good time to head on over to the Amazon website because Hercules Reborn, which the former WWE performer stars in, is being released and shipped today. Interestingly enough, the website credits Morrison as the director as well as the star. However, that might simply be a typo because Nick Lyon sat in the director's chair for the film.
July 8, 2014
Bray Wyatt
If you're a big fan of Chris Jericho, then you probably should not blink. Rumors floating around is that he will be leaving WWE very soon. Some are even saying that he only came back to work with Bray Wyatt and help him get over some more before joining the main event scene. Speculations are that he will be gone before the year is over and that WWE paid him a hefty sum to come back.
July 6, 2014
Jeff Jarrett
Rumors are floating around that one of the reasons why TNA brought back the six sided ring, under the guise of fan voting, was because they wanted to beat Jeff Jarrett to the punch. Talks within the industry have Jarrett utilizing the unique ring when his new promotion, Global Force Wrestling, starts up. No word yet on whether or not Jarrett still plans on using the six sided ring now that TNA has brought it back.
July 4, 2014
Chris Jericho
A terminally ill fan with cancer had a dream of seeing Chris Jericho performing with Fozzy before he passed away. The former WWE star reached out and made that happen. Jericho even took it a step further by setting up a fund to help the fan with medical bills. Donations are also being accepted so that the ten year old daughter of the fan will have some money after he passes away.
June 30, 2014
Jeff Jarrett
When news initially broke out that Jeff Jarrett was starting a new wrestling promotion, all fingers pointed to Toby Keith as his financial backer. The country music singer is a big fan of wrestling and good friend of Jarrett. However, reports are surfacing now that Keith is not involved with Global Force Wrestling. There are rumors that the financial backer is someone that Jarrett knows through his NASCAR connections.
June 29, 2014
Steve Austin
During his latest podcast interview, Steve Austin interviewed Vince Russo, and the topic of Austin's early stint in WWE came up. Both revealed to fans that Vince McMahon was not a huge fan of Austin at the time. He also did not want Austin to talk whatsoever because McMahon felt that his microphone skills were not up to par. Russo, however, pushed to give Austin an opportunity to speak, and the legendary push ensued.
June 28, 2014
Adam Rose
While management might not be a big fan of Adam Rose, he does have a supporter in Batista. At the Comic Con event in Philadelphia over the weekend, Batista told the fans, who were there to hear him speak about the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy movie, that Rose was someone in WWE that people should keep an eye on. That show of support is unlikely to have an effect on management, though.
June 24, 2014
Dixie Carter
A bit of a buzz was created for Cryme Tyme over the weekend, thanks to an interview on TMZ, where Shad Gaspard and JTG informed the fans that they are now teaming up again on the independent wrestling circuit. Gaspard decided to fan the flames even further when he posted on Twitter that the duo should contact Dixie Carter about perhaps signing a contract with TNA.
June 23, 2014
Scott Hall
After announcing his retirement from UFC, Chael Sonnen posted a quote on his Twitter account that stated, "Bad times don't last, but bad guys do." The comment caught the attention of Scott Hall, who proceeded to criticize Sonnen for stealing the line that he made while being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. This appears to be a misunderstanding as Sonnen is a big fan of wrestling and has used several quotes over the years.
June 22, 2014
Daniel Bryan
There's some potentially bad news if you're a big fan of Daniel Bryan, as rumors are now surfacing that he might not be healthy enough to make a return at Summerslam 2014 as previously predicted. WWE wants to be very careful with his situation, as something negative could trigger a big storm with the mainstream media. Bryan is featured heavily on Total Divas and is one of the more known stars now in the industry.
June 19, 2014
JTG
If you're a big fan of Cryme Tyme, then get on the phone with the independent wrestling promotion to ask them to book the former WWE tag team. Now that JTG has been given a release by the company, he has decided to reunite with Shad Gaspard, so that the two of them can be booked as a unit on the indies circuit. Combined, they have much more name value, so they can command a higher contract from promoters.
June 19, 2014
Chris Jericho
In quite the shrewd marketing move, Chris Jericho has signed up Drew McIntyre for an interview. Fan interest in this particular episode of his podcast should be higher than usual since McIntyre was recently given a release from WWE. Jericho teased that the former Chosen One will break his silence during the segment. There is actually a good chance that McIntyre will vent on bring used poorly by the company.
June 17, 2014
Paige
Rumors leaked recently about Vince McMahon not being a big fan of Paige, which would explain why the creative department has not given her much to work with since she captured the WWE Divas Championship. That riled up her mother, who happens to be a professional wrestler in England. She replied on social media by denying the rumors and mocking wrestling sites for their accuracy. However, she later deleted the messages, perhaps realizing that she was adding fuel to the fire and hurting her daughter by addressing the rumors.
June 17, 2014
Bruiser Brody
"I wasn't sold on him. I wasn't sold on the idea that they kept comparing him to Bruiser Brody, because Brody for the longtime wrestling fan was one of the great wrestlers of his era or of all time. But he was known as the intelligent monster and Harper was an out of control maniac. I think once you stop trying to imitate somebody and find your own way things really start clicking. So, I've been watching him and things have really been clicking and after the Wyatts have this amazing run, hopefully as long as possible, yeah, I do think he has what it takes to become a singles star." - Mick Foley shares his views on Luke Harper and his potential to become a star in WWE
June 15, 2014
Alicia Fox
Since there are key members of management who are big fans of her new gimmick, Alicia Fox is expected to receive a nice push in the upcoming weeks. There's a very good chance that she could end up winning the WWE Divas Championship in the near future since rumors have been floating around that Vince McMahon is not a fan of Paige and her work.
June 14, 2014
Bo Dallas
It looks like the Bo Dallas push in WWE could be coming to an end soon. While he still has some supporters in the creative department, especially those who are amused by the gimmick, it is being said that Vince McMahon himself is not a fan. Rumors have it that McMahon was the one that quickly pulled the plug on his first stint on the main roster, so it would not come as a surprise if he decided to halt the push soon.
June 12, 2014
Paige
While a lot of fans are high on the newcomer, Vince McMahon is said to not be a fan of Paige, even though she currently wears his WWE Divas Championship. Rumors have it that she has not been given much of a story line to work with because McMahon is not backing her. It is probably the reason why the creative department has done little character development for her.
June 12, 2014
Adam Rose
During the three hour broadcast of Monday Night Raw this week, Adam Rose was nowhere to be found, and that has sparked quite a bit of speculation about his status in WWE. Kevin Dunn, the producer, reportedly buried Rose backstage not too long ago because he is not a fan of the gimmick. For what it's worth, though, Rose did suffer a bit of an injury at a live event over the weekend.
June 12, 2014
Chris Jericho
It has been several years since the two of them worked together, but Chris Jericho still harbors a good amount of resentment towards Goldberg. During a one night show in London, Jericho expressed his feelings about the former WCW champion to the audience. He stated that Golberg had a bad attitude, no sense of humor and was an idiot. Jericho also noted that a pay per view match between the two of them never took place because Goldberg opted to go hunting that day instead.
June 14, 2014
CM Punk
"We're all individuals and we all live different ways, I do not know any of the back story, I don't know CM Punk but I can empathize and I can completely understand anyone who wouldn't like dealings that have transgressed throughout the years at the WWE." - Goldberg discusses the backstage heat situation involving CM Punk and WWE
May 28, 2014
Brock Lesnar
During a recent interview, Goldberg revealed that he recently let WWE know that he's interested in a return. He listed Triple H and Brock Lesnar as two opponents that he would love to work with. Goldberg also added Roman Reigns and noted that they both played college football at Georgia. The former world heavyweight champion feels that WWE can do a story out of that connection.
May 21, 2014
Goldberg
In order to get the ball rolling, officials are trying to work out a deal with Goldberg that will see him being included as a character in WWE 2K15 this fall. The company would then start hyping that up around Summerslam 2014 to gauge the interest of the fans. Once that happens, then the company can negotiate with Goldberg to work a match at Wrestlemania 31.
May 3, 2014
Goldberg
There are rumors floating around right now about Goldberg being interested in working a big match at Wrestlemania 31, but those are simply speculations at this point. Aside from the event being almost an entire year away, there have been absolutely no negotiations between the two sides about having Goldberg working that particular show.
April 30, 2014
Vince McMahon
ABC has a sitcom called the Goldbergs, and producers have a special wrestling themed episode coming up soon. Goldberg himself has been cast for the show, and he intends to do a tribute to the Ultimate Warrior on there. The former WCW champion even contacted Vince McMahon and Stephanie McMahon to get approval.
April 19, 2014
Diamond Dallas Page
With much of the wrestling world in the state of Louisiana this weekend, Mr Anderson will be in New Orleans as well. Instead of working Wrestlemania 30, though, he will be making an appearance at WrestleCon, along with several dozens of other big name performers like Goldberg, Kevin Nash, Diamond Dallas Page and Scott Hall.
April 4, 2014
John Cena
During a recent interview, Buff Bagwell was asked about John Cena, and he stated that he could have been just as big as Cena had WWE given him the exact same push. He also noted that Cena was not as good as guys like Sting, Goldberg, Steve Austin and the Rock. Bagwell feels that Cena is simply at the right place at the right time.
March 10, 2014
Goldberg
While a lot of fans are showing their disapproval of Batista being brought back to WWE in such a high position by booing him, Goldberg feels a little bit of sympathy towards the big man. He noted on Twitter that he was hoping that Batista would be able to turn things around and get fans on his side before he headlines Wrestlemania 30 in April.
March 1, 2014
Goldberg
While the rumors were red hot a few weeks back, it appears that talks about Goldberg making a return to WWE and working a high profile match at Wrestlemania 30 has died down tremendously as of late. Goldberg has publicly denied that there have been any negotiations, but reports have surfaced that the two sides could not come to terms financially on a contract.
February 7, 2014
Undertaker

"Special thanks to the Rock for making my childhood dream come true! U have no idea how many couches and old mattresses I jumped off thinking I was one of y'all! U, Ultimate Warrior, Sting, Legion of Doom, Goldberg and The Undertaker I could watch all day plus many more! I feel like a little kid again. Thanks again Champ!"

- NBA superstar LeBron James

January 22, 2014
Ryback

While the chances of it happening are extremely close to none because the two sides simply cannot come to an agreement on financial terms, WWE is still holding out a little bit of hope that they can sign Goldberg and have him wrestle Ryback at Wrestlemania 30.

January 16, 2014
Goldberg

January 9, 2014
Goldberg

While negotiations have not advanced too far, WWE still wants Goldberg to make a return and work a big match at Wrestlemania 30. In fact, there are those that believe that the creative department is saving a spot specifically for him.

December 11, 2013
Ryback

"People will say Ryback - 'What would Warrior have been like with Ryback?' Or Goldberg. I know why they say those things - because of the intensity and body look, the aggression, the power. Those kind of matches tend to be f**king stinkers, you know? You want to work with somebody who's got a different style. Wrestling is more than just being big."

November 29, 2013
Goldberg

The negotiations between WWE and Goldberg are not going too well at the moment, as the former WCW star is asking for a really high amount of money to work Wrestlemania 30.

November 28, 2013
Ryback

"I have a great amount of respect for Bill Goldberg, but I'm not going to beat around the bush and say I wanna be best friends with the guy. I'd like to face him in the ring. I've heard him say he's not happy with comments I've made about him, if he has a problem with it let's settle it at Wrestlemania."

November 22, 2013
