February 22, 2014
Great Khali
Some eyes backstage have been on the Great Khali, as management has not been utilizing him as much lately. He has only worked two televised matches, a win over Damien Sandow on Monday Night Raw and a brief appearance at Royal Rumble 2014. WWE also sent Big Show to India for a promotional tour instead of him recently as well.
February 22, 2014
Great Khali
Great Khali might have lost some job security this week, as the Big Show has been doing a fantastic job of promoting WWE in India. It is being reported that he has drawn close to 50,000 fans combined to two separate appearances. For years, the company has kept Khali on the roster and paid him well because of the market in India.
February 14, 2014
Great Khali
In a rather interesting move, the Big Show is being sent to India this week to do some promotional work. Many had expected Great Khali to being sent overseas for that task, since he has been collecting a huge paycheck by being a draw to that region. This has led to speculations that the company could be looking to part ways soon.
February 14, 2014
Great Khali

While he is no longer being pushed as a legitimate threat towards the main event scene, the Great Khali is pulling in a huge salary from WWE still. He is pulling in approximately $974,000 a year, which is mainly due to the fact that he is massively popular in India and generates interest from that market

December 12, 2013

Alberto Del Rio

"Yes, of course. I'm Mexican. I grew up watching him. I saw him several times before he came to WWE or any other company in the US. He wrestled for years and years in Mexico, especially in Ciudad Juarez. I've always admired him. He started from the bottom and at the end of his career he was one of the most amazing, most popular Superstars in the world."

November 22, 2013
Hulk Hogan

"Everything kinda went downhill very fast. There was an accident that my son was involved in, and a good friend of ours was in the accident with my son. Just the marriage basically crashing and burning. After the show [Hogan Knows Best], I kinda hit rock bottom. Everything got dark, everything happened at once. I was drinking alcohol very heavily. It just all kept piling up, it all kept mounting and mounting and I didn't know how to handle it. I always wondered how could someone possibly take their own life, and so I got to that point where I said, 'You know what, maybe this would be easy. You know, maybe this would be an easy way to fix things.'"

April 2, 2014
Great Khali
Rumors about the Great Khali leaving WWE when his contract expires this year have been spreading since management has been downplaying his role on Monday Night Raw and Smackdown. Right now, there are talks backstage that the company might opt to keep him from working at Wrestlemania 30, in which case, his fate with WWE is sure to come to an end.
March 20, 2014
Great Khali
Since WWE has been phasing out the Great Khali over the last few weeks, there is a very good chance that he could be allowed to walk away from the company when his contract expires. If that were to happen, then Jinder Mahal might finally get his push, as he is a decent worker, does not get in trouble and is on a relatively cheap contract.
March 17, 2014
CJ Parker
The Great Khali made his return to the ring this week by working a match against CJ Parker at the WWE NXT taping. Prior to that, he had not worked a match since Royal Rumble 2014. The belief is that the former world heavyweight champion is going to be given a spot at Wrestlemania 30 in the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal.
March 16, 2014
Great Khali
It looks like WWE may be planning a split with the Great Khali, as some are saying that the company is attempting to renegotiate their television deal in India without the big man being as much of a presence as he has been in the past. If their brand is popular enough to get a new contract signed, then they could save themselves close to $1 million a year by letting Khali go.
March 11, 2014
Great Khali
WWE posted this picture of the Great Khali getting his US citizenship this week, and it's really hard to not notice how much he stands out in the sea of people.
February 26, 2014
Great Khali
Even though he was not booked for Elimination Chamber 2014, Big Show is still very much in contention for a coveted match at Wrestlemania 30. Right now, WWE simply had nothing for him from the creative department. Plus, he replaced the Great Khali on an overseas promotional tour of India. He should be back on television soon.
February 24, 2014
Great Khali
Despite having a lot of charisma, Joey Ryan was not signed to a developmental contract by WWE after his tryout match against Great Khali last year. He has now revealed that management informed him that they were not picking him up because he had recently left TNA. It was too soon for them to bring him on board, despite the fact that he would not be on Monday Night Raw or Smackdown for a while.
February 20, 2014
Damien Sandow

While many are already aware that WWE is not planning on pushing Damien Sandow in the near future, it now looks like he's headed in the opposite direction actually. He only has one televised victory since the year started, and that was a win over Great Khali, a performer on the lower end of the card.

February 5, 2014

Spud is expected to be utilized in the ring more often in the near future.
April 18, 2014

While she did not leave the company after Wrestlemania 30 like rumored, Vickie Guerrero still intends on moving on from WWE at some point in time. She has already given notice to management, and she still continues to work on her college degree and business ventures. Guerrero wants to maintain a good working relationship with WWE.
April 17, 2014
Antonio Cesaro
A lot of fans have noticed that Antonio Cesaro has been coming out to the ring in silence since joining up with Paul Heyman. While it has generated a little buzz for WWE, that is not the long term plan. Management is currently trying to find the right entrance theme for Cesaro. He is being given a huge push, so everything has to be just right.
April 17, 2014
El Torito
One of the ideas being tossed around right now backstage in WWE is to have Hornswoggle and El Torito wrestling one another on a pretty frequent basis. The two of them will be featured on Smackdown this week, and there could be more matches coming up. WWE had the two of them training together for a couple of weeks to ensure that the match quality is decent.
April 17, 2014
Rock
While speaking to the media in Australia this week, Rock revealed that he wants to be in the next James Bond movie. The former WWE champion is a big fan of Daniel Craig, who plays the title role.

Angelina Love
Earlier this week, it was revealed that Angelina Love, who recently made her return to TNA, is on the cast of an upcoming movie called Epidemic, which is a film about zombies taking over the earth after humans destroyed an asteroid with a big missile. Another person in the movie is Kelly Kelly, a former WWE diva.
April 17, 2014
Rey Mysterio
While rumors have been floating around that Rey Mysterio has left WWE after skipping Monday Night Raw to take his family to Hawaii this week, there are still talks that he is still with the company. On a leaked script that managed to find its way to the internet, Mysterio is listed on there as being injured. His name still remains on the official talent roster.
April 17, 2014
Brock Lesnar
It was heavily speculated that Brock Lesnar would be taking time off after Wrestlemania 30, and it looks like the rumors are true. WWE has removed him from their list of available performers backstage. There are talks that he could be out until Summerslam 2014, unless management can convince him to work some dates before then.
April 17, 2014
Fandango
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
Drew McIntyre
On WWE Main Event, Hornswoggle teamed up with Jinder Mahal and Drew McIntyre, which has caused some speculations to arise. Rumors over the past several weeks have stated that Heath Slater was unhappy backstage because he was not receiving a push. However, his absence on this show was unrelated, as Slater missed the show because he is heading to Saudi Arabia for a tour with WWE.
April 17, 2014
AJ Lee
One of the biggest reasons why WWE opted to put the Divas championship on Paige is because AJ Lee really needed to take some time off from the road. Aside from being stuck in the figurative storm after CM Punk walked out on the company, AJ has been on the road constantly over the last year. Both her body and mind needed the break.
April 16, 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
Batista
Even though he is one of the more known performers in the company, WWE is allowing Batista to skip out on the Saudi Arabia tour taking place this week. The belief when the former world heavyweight champion was brought back was that he would help with global marketing due to his history in the company and being a movie star.
April 16, 2014
Sami Zayn
When several of the WWE stars take off for Saudi Arabia this week, Sami Zayn will be joining them. He's the only developmental wrestler going on the tour. WWE wanted to get a better look at him, and some backstage feel that he might have some marketing appeal overseas. There are still rumors floating around that Zayn could be one of the WWE NXT stars to be called up to the main roster in the coming weeks.
April 16, 2014
Brie Bella
Since he is currently on his honeymoon with Brie Bella, Daniel Bryan is not on the list of WWE stars who are heading over to Saudi Arabia this week for a quick tour. Management event allowed him to skip Monday Night Raw and Smackdown this week, despite being the world heavyweight champion. He is expected to be be with WWE by next Monday.
April 16, 2014
Vickie Guerrero
After being heavily rumored to be leaving the company after Wrestlemania 30, Vickie Guerrero has continued to be on the road for WWE. This week, she worked the Smackdown taping. Afterwards, the wrestlers got together and threw her a little birthday party once the television taping was done. She turned 46 today.
April 16, 2014
Ultimate Warrior
The WWE Hall of Fame induction ceremony was sent over to On Demand to be aired this past week. However, management opted to make a couple of changes. One of those omissions was the part of the Ultimate Warrior speech where he talked about WWE losing the legal battle against WWF in court. Management did not want that to cause any further legal issues.
April 16, 2014
Stephanie McMahon
During a WWE Business Partner Summit, Stephanie McMahon revealed that the company will be completely shifting over to a new logo, which happens to be the current one used for the WWE Network, by Summerslam 2014. Management has been slowly replacing the logos over the last several weeks and will keep doing so until August.
April 16, 2014
Vince McMahon
WWE has issued a statement touting the fact that a record number of households watched Wrestlemania 30 this year. That total comes from both the WWE Network and traditional pay per view buys. One of the reasons why Vince McMahon wanted to launch the online service was to draw in more people for the pay per view with the lower monthly pricing.
April 16, 2014
