Alberto Del Rio
The reunion between Alberto Del Rio and Ricardo Rodriguez has been signed. The former WWE stars, both of whom were given a release within the past couple of weeks, will be doing a show in Puerto Rico together. The story line has already been placed in motion. Del Rio and Rodriguez will be aligned in a feud against Ray Gonzalez, and it looks like they will be portraying foreign heels.
September 3, 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
Kurt Angle
There are rumors floating around right now that Kurt Angle has called Triple H about a possible return to WWE. Reports has surfaced that HHH is not interested in a reunion with the former world heavyweight champion. There is said to be some lingering backstage heat from HHH towards Angle, whose contract with TNA expires in exactly a month from today.
August 21, 2014
Hulk Hogan
Since WWE wants to make this is a big edition of Monday Night Raw, the company has enlisted the help of Hulk Hogan and friends to help spike the ratings. Scott Hall and Kevin Nash have already been confirmed for an appearance, and there are talks that an nWo reunion could be taking place. Another person from Hogan's past has now been added as well. Paul Orndorff is scheduled to make an appearance tonight.
August 11, 2014
Hulk Hogan
The white and black is headed back to WWE next week when Monday Night Raw comes to us live from Portland. Hulk Hogan will be celebrating his birthday on air, and he has a couple of buddies coming back to join him. Scott Hall and Kevin Nash have reportedly been confirmed for the event, and the belief is that WWE will be doing some sort of nWo reunion to boost television ratings.
August 6, 2014
Miz
Up until today, it was a bit of a mystery as to when Ric Flair would be making his television return for WWE. Well, that puzzle has now been solved. The former world heavyweight champion is officially scheduled to make appearances on the next episodes of Monday Night Raw and Smackdown. No word yet on what WWE will have him doing, but there have been rumors of a reunion with the Miz floating around over the last couple of months.
July 9, 2014
Curt Hawkins
JTG and Shad Gaspard are not the only former WWE tag team doing a reunion. Word going around is that Curt Hawkins and Tyler Reks are looking into doing a tour of the independent wrestling circuit together. Reks has not been all that active since leaving WWE to start his own business. The two of them should have enough name value to pick up bookings.
June 26, 2014
Jimmy Uso
Another interesting name that has surfaced in the rumor mill as a potential hall of fame inductee at Wrestlemania 31 is Rikishi. The belief is that including him in the same class as the Rock, whom WWE is hoping will be the centerpiece induction at the event, makes a lot of sense. There is also the chance that a reconciliation and reunion with Naomi Knight and Jimmy Uso could be a big story.
May 14, 2014
Angelina Love
With Angelina Love making her return to TNA after several years away from the company, that has sparked the itch in another former Knockout. Taylor Wilde, who was a former champion in the company, wants to return to TNA. No word yet on whether or not Dixie Carter is interested in a reunion, as the company has been rather busy signing performers as of late.
May 6, 2014
Batista
Rumors are heating up quite a bit about the story line between Evolution and Shield tonight at Extreme Rules 2014. With Ric Flair having a standing offer to return and with Batista agreeing to stay with WWE for another month, the belief is that Flair will turn on Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns at the pay per view. His reunion with Triple H, Batista and Randy Orton would be a centerpiece story on Monday Night Raw.
May 4, 2014
Bobby Roode
While they both have now established themselves as singles stars, there are talks backstage in TNA of doing a Beer Money reunion. The hope would be that James Storm and Bobby Roode can remain relevant while carrying the tag team division once again. It would help fill the void that is being left by the potential departures of Christopher Daniels and Frankie Kazarian.
April 24, 2014
Hernandez
Even though the event is eight months away from now, promoters for WrestleCade, a big independent wrestling show in North Carolina, have secured the services of Homicide, Hernandez and Shelly Martinez. They're going to be heavily promoting the LAX reunion. The three of them worked closely together in TNA a couple of years back.
March 16, 2014
Terry Funk

In 2005, WWE offered Terry Funk a contract to work the One Night Stand pay per view, which was an ECW reunion show, but the legendary performer opted to reject that deal, in order to work Hardcore Homecoming, an independent wrestling show held by Shane Douglas.

Vladimir Kozlov

Very sad news for the world of professional wrestling today, as Paul Bearer has passed away. The legendary WWE manager has died after complaining about having respiratory issues. His cause of death will not be known for several months, pending an autopsy. He had recently attended a wrestling reunion show in Alabama.
March 2, 2013
Great Muta
When Bound For Glory 2014 was announced, there were some concerns because New Japan was doing a show at the same venue on the same day as well. Dixie Carter and Great Muta no longer need to worry about that since NJPW has decided to cancel the event. No word yet on the cause behind the cancellation. There are some speculations that Jeff Jarrett, who was recently in Japan, might have had something to do with it.
August 16, 2014
Davey Richards
Wrestle-1 ran a live event this week, and a couple of TNA stars were on hand for the show. Rockstar Spud, Ethan Carter, Davey Richards and Eddie Edwards were all sent to Japan by Dixie Carter to participate. Great Muta even teamed up with Spud and Carter in a match. The belief is that we will be seeing more talent exchange situations between the two companies for the foreseeable future.
July 7, 2014
Dixie Carter
You can expect to see more of Seiya Sanada on Impact Wrestling over the next few months. The former TNA X Division Champion has decided to sign another contract with Dixie Carter that will ensure that he remains in the United States until at least the end of the year. Sanada also has a deal with the Great Muta, so he will be venturing back overseas for tours with Wrestle-1 as well. The rumored deal has been finalized.
July 7, 2014
Tajiri
Since his company is folding and he is joining the Great Muta in Wrestle-1, there are talks that Tajiri could be making an appearance in TNA very soon, as the two companies have been working closely together nowadays. Tajiri still has some name value due to his stint in WWE, and he has a connection with characters like Rhyno, Bully Ray, Tommy Dreamer and Devon.
July 6, 2014
Dixie Carter
When Seiya Sanada first joined TNA, the belief was that he was only temporarily here in the United States to boost his credibility with fans in Japan. However, since the relationship has worked out well for all sides, there are talks now of Sanada sticking around for a bit. A joint contract between the former X division champion, Great Muta and Dixie Carter is being discussed that will keep Sanada in the US a bit longer.
July 4, 2014
Great Muta
Over the last several weeks, TNA has been generating quite the buzz, including a big announcement by Dixie Carter and Great Muta about doing Bound For Glory 2014 in Japan. Now, the company is hyping up a huge announcement that will be taking place at the London Film and Comic Con event. No official word yet on what the announcement will be, but some are speculation that TNA could be doing a pay per view in England soon.
June 30, 2014
Great Muta
It's going to be a busy day at the Korakuen Hall on October 12th. Dixie Carter and the Great Muta are not the only people hosting a wrestling pay per view at that venue. New Japan Pro Wrestling will also be doing an internet pay per view there as well. The belief is that one of the shows, most likely Bound For Glory 2014, will be taped in the afternoon.
June 26, 2014
Dixie Carter
The announcement by Dixie Carter and Great Muta turned out to be much bigger than initially expected. Some thought the two were just going to reveal that more Japanese wrestlers were coming to the states to work TNA shows. However, the two shocked the wrestling world by announcing that Bound For Glory 2014 will be taking place in Japan. Muta is expected to play a big part in setting everything up for TNA over in Tokyo.
June 25, 2014
Tajiri
Earlier this week, Tajiri and the Great Muta had a joint press conference to announce that Wrestling New Classic, which was ran by Tajiri, was folding and that the performers would be joining Wrestle-1, which is owned by Muta. The move enables Wrestle-1 to have a much deeper roster, while making it easier for the former Wrestling New Classic guys to find immediate work.
June 24, 2014
Yoshi Tatsu
While WWE did not feel that he was good enough for the main roster, Yoshi Tatsu still has a couple of suitors left in the industry. Shortly after his contract release, the Japanese star was contacted by All Japan Pro Wrestling and Wrestle-1, which is owned by the Great Muta, about returning to his home country. Rumors are floating around that Tatsu would prefer to stay in the United States, so he may explore his options here first before making a decision to return home.
June 23, 2014
Dixie Carter
On Wednesday, a press conference has been scheduled by Dixie Carter and the Great Muta. A huge announcement is expected to be made, but no details have been released just yet.

Speculations are that Muta will be bringing an influx of Japanese wrestlers over to the states to work the upcoming Bound For Glory 2014 show.
June 23, 2014
Great Muta
Since the company wants to have a great showing in New York City, TNA has announced that the Great Muta will be making his return from Japan next month when the company tapes a couple of episodes of Impact Wrestling from the Manhattan Center. Despite working with WCW for years, this will be the very first time that the Japanese legend has worked a wrestling show in New York City.
May 27, 2014
Great Muta
With more people in the United States now aware that the Great Muta owns a wrestling promotion called Wrestle-1, many have started wondering about the net worth of the Japanese legend. While he has made millions over the years, Muta actually has financial backers to help fund Wrestle-1. GEN Sports Entertainment put down quite a bit of money to help launch the promotion.
May 11, 2014
Seiya Sanada
When the Great Muta and Dixie Carter reached an agreement on talent exchange, the two sides decided that Seiya Sanada would be utilized in TNA for a couple of months. The X Division Champion is still scheduled to leave the promotion and the country before the year ends. He is expected to receive a huge push in Wrestle-1 by winter time.
May 10, 2014
Great Muta
Rumors have been floating around for the last couple of months that Rob Terry was going to be brought back to TNA after gaining experience in OVW and Japan, where he worked with the Great Muta in Wrestle-1.

May 2, 2014
Tajiri
With his contract status in limbo at the moment, Frankie Kazarian is heading over to Japan to work a match for the Great Muta and his new Wrestle-1 promotion.

Great Muta
Since he is now working closely with Wrestle-1, many were under the impression that Rob Terry might have been chosen to team up with the Great Muta and Seiya Sanada during TNA Lockdown 2014, but the move was something that management was against because they want him to return in a much bigger way down the line.
