Diamond Dallas Page
The latest wrestler to jump on the stand up comedy bandwagon is Diamond Dallas Page. He is currently doing shows throughout Europe. DDP joins guys like Mick Foley, Jim Ross, Dolph Ziggler and William Regal in making the jump from the wrestling ring to the stage.

Mick Foley
Jenifer Bloodsworth used to be a writer for WWE, but she is now doing stand up comedy. Fortunately for her, she has a good friend with name value in Mick Foley. The two of them have decided to start working together. Bloodsworth is now the opening act on the tour for Foley, who has been consistently booking himself all over the country.

Mick Foley
"I tend not to get hecklers. I tend to get over-exuberant wrestling fans. Fans who don't always understand that they shouldn't shout out the endings to my stories. Because, if they're fans, they already know how the stories end. Those people enjoy it, but it's frustrating they don't let me finish the stories. Fortunately, I'm experienced entertaining on Friday and Saturday nights, when some people are drunker than usual. But if that happens, I just stand back and let the club handle it. I don't fear a heckler. I don't take pride in shredding them apart, but I'm not afraid either. We're supposed to be having laughs... I take honor in the act of entertaining people who laid down their money." - Mick Foley talking about wrestling fans ruining his comedy shows

Chris Jericho
Since he walked out of WWE, CM Punk was forced to cancel an appearance on @midnight, a show on Comedy Central. The host issued a statement in support of Punk, and has decided to call up another wrestler to take his place. Chris Jericho will now be appearing on the show. He is scheduled for the March 3rd episode.

Mick Foley
Since he is quite ambitious and wants to see his comedy career really taking off, Mick Foley booked himself a lot of shows in the early part of 2014. He also scheduled those events in northern cities, where the weather is really bad right now. The WWE legend posted this status update on Twitter to make fun of himself.
February 11, 2014
CM Punk
Even though CM Punk dropped out on an appearance on his show, Chris Hardwick has no hard feelings and is actually defending the WWE star. He stated that Punk was a friend and that he did not make the decision to cancel lightly. The very understanding Hardwick is the host of @midnight on Comedy Central.
February 10, 2014
CM Punk
As was heavily rumored, CM Punk has been pulled from @midnight, a show on Comedy Central. No word yet on who pulled the trigger on the cancellation, but the belief was that it would not have been a good idea for the former world champion to make a public appearance since he walked away from his job with WWE.
February 9, 2014
Dolph Ziggler
WWE is hitting up California this weekend for a string of live events. Dolph Ziggler has been scheduled for those shows, and the former world heavyweight champion has revealed that he is going to stick around after the company leaves, as he intends to do some stand up comedy in the area.
February 7, 2014
CM Punk

On Twitter, Mick Foley made a joke to fans who are thinking about going to one of his comedy shows. The former WWE star stated that they were allowed to bring CM Punk signs to his events, which is basically mocking the company for confiscating signs from fans in support of Punk.

February 4, 2014
CM Punk

A lot of eyes will be tuned in to Comedy Central on February 12, as CM Punk is scheduled to make an appearance on a show called @midnight. Some believe that he might cancel the appearance since the host will more than likely be asking him about his backstage heat with WWE.

February 3, 2014
Daniel Bryan

At the risk of ruining his chances of signing a new deal with the company involving his stand up comedy show, Mick Foley, whose contract expires in a few weeks, opted to be open and honest by speaking out against WWE for not pushing Daniel Bryan at Royal Rumble 2014. 

January 27, 2014
Edge

Goldust
Since WWE introduced quite a bit of new performers on Monday Night Raw this week, rumors have been running rampant about which of the current stars on the main roster are going to be removed to make room. One of the names that has popped up is Goldust, as his contract with WWE is expiring in the near future. The veteran performer signed a short term deal upon his return last year.
April 13, 2014
Damien Sandow
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
Justin Gabriel
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
Summer Rae
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
Goldust
After much speculations about their role at Wrestlemania 30, Cody Rhodes and Goldust have now been confirmed as participants for the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal. There were talks backstage in WWE of giving the brothers a higher profile match on the show, but management has been downplaying their importance over the last several weeks.
March 19, 2014
Dusty Rhodes
Even though the brothers have not been utilized on television as strongly as they were a couple of months ago, WWE is working on a DVD that will featured around Dusty Rhodes, Cody Rhodes and Goldust. The family should be receiving a push whenever the DVD is ready to be launched. There's a good chance now that Goldust will stick around a little bit longer.
March 14, 2014
Jimmy Uso
In a rather peculiar move, WWE removed the match featuring Roman Reigns, who is their rising star, Seth Rollins, Cody Rhodes and Goldust from the Hulu broadcast of Monday Night Raw this week. That comes as a surprise to many, as the Shield is viewed as one of the focal points on the show. It also surprised people that Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso were considered more of a priority this week.
March 11, 2014
Goldust
Back when Cody Rhodes and Goldust had a lot of momentum going their way, there was a lot of talks of bringing Brandi Rhodes up to the main roster to work a program with her husband and his brother. However, since the two of them are not longer being pushed, Brandi appears to be stuck in the developmental program for the time being.
March 9, 2014
Cody Rhodes
There are talks that Cody Rhodes could have some backstage heat on him for whatever reasons. He has been demoted a bit over the last couple of weeks, and his rumored match against Goldust at Wrestlemania 30 has been all but dropped from the playbook. There is a chance that he might not even get a spot on the card at all.
March 8, 2014
Goldust
For a while, there was a very good chance that Dusty Rhodes was going to be involved at Wrestlemania 30, as his sons, Cody Rhodes and Goldust, were penciled in for a match against one another at the pay per view. However, with WWE leaning away from that idea now, there really is not much of a need for Rhodes to be booked for the show.
March 2, 2014
Cody Rhodes
For quite some time, there were plans penciled in for Wrestlemania 30 for a big match between Cody Rhodes and Goldust. Management is not nearly as high on the two of them nowadays, as the match is now off the table. There is still a chance, though, that the brothers will work the pay per view as a tag team, especially if they go with a multiple team match for the WWE tag titles.
February 27, 2014
Goldust
While it was initially feared that he would be back on the sidelines after injuring his knee at a television taping last week, it appears that Rey Mysterio is healthy enough to keep working, as the masked superstar worked a six man tag team match with Cody Rhodes and Goldust at the Smackdowing taping this past Tuesday night.
February 20, 2014
Curtis Axel
While many were under the impression that Cody Rhodes was being left off of the Elimination Chamber 2014 main card because of his knee injury, apparently, he is healthy enough to work, as WWE has placed him into the kickoff match. He will be teaming with Goldust in a tag team match against Ryback and Curtis Axel.
February 19, 2014
Goldust
Originally, Cody Rhodes and Goldust were both scheduled to work live events over the weekend in Las Vegas and Phoenix. However, it appears that management has pulled them because they wanted to give Cody some time to heal up from his knee injury. The brothers might still make an appearance on Monday Night Raw, though.
February 17, 2014
Jack Swagger
Since WWE wants a tag team championship match at Elimination Chamber 2014, Road Dogg and Billy Gunn are assured of a spot on the card. It looks like management is leaning towards a fatal four way match. The other contestants are most likely going to be Cody Rhodes, Goldust, Jack Swagger, Antonio Cesaro, Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso.
February 16, 2014
Goldust
Through Twitter, Dusty Rhodes posted this special happy birthday message to his granddaughter Dakota Runnels. She is the daughter of WWE star Goldust.
February 14, 2014
Goldust
Prior to transforming into Goldust and making a long awaited return to WWE, Dustin Rhodes did some acting. He is one of the stars in an upcoming movie called Meet Me There, which will make its premiere conveniently around the same time as Wrestlemania 30. A special contest is being held to allow fans to watch the movie with Rhodes.
February 8, 2014
Goldust
Since he is still scheduled to do a story line against Cody Rhodes, the belief is that Goldust will be the one doing the heel turn. The veteran performer is signed with WWE until the summer, so the story line could very well extend past their rumored match at Wrestlemania 30.
February 7, 2014
Cody Rhodes

The belief backstage right now is that Cody Rhodes and Goldust will be splitting up at Elimination Chamber 2014, where the brothers are expected to be involved in a match for the WWE tag titles. A match between the two is still penciled in for Wrestlemania 30.

February 1, 2014
Rick Victor
Cody Rhodes and Goldust paid a visit to WWE NXT, and the brother tandem were placed into a match against Rick Victor and Conor OBrian. The match ended in a disqualification, and the developmental wrestlers were on the losing end.
