Daniel Bryan
A lot of fans were disappointed with how things ended at Elimination Chamber 2014.

October 30, 2013
Big E Langston
There are those backstage in WWE that are skeptical of the idea of doing a heel turn for Kofi Kingston, who has long been regarded as the ultimate baby face. Since he does a lot of the charity work for the company, some are afraid that it will affect that aspect of his job as well. There are rumors floating around that WWE does not have finalized plans for the new stable that also consists of Xavier Woods and Big E Langston.
July 26, 2014
Josh Mathews
Josh Mathews might not be out of a job for too long. Rumors are floating around that TNA is very close to signing him to a contract. When he was backstage at Impact Wrestling, he did not seem like a typical visitor, as management was introducing him to people backstage. The belief is that he would be a valuable asset since he understands a lot about the production in WWE.
July 25, 2014
Josh Mathews
Yesterday, Josh Mathews received his release from WWE, losing his dream job because the company needed to save money. The announcer decided that he was not going to just sit around and mope. Instead, Mathews is backstage at the Impact Wrestling taping, which is taking place in New York City. The belief is that he is gauging to see if there is any interest from TNA in signing him to a contract.
June 26, 2014
Drew McIntyre
During a recent interview, Jinder Mahal revealed that he was surprised by his WWE release. He stated that he and Drew McIntyre had no signs from management that they were on the bubble. Mahal noted that 3MB, which currently only consists of Heath Slater and Hornswoggle, was booked on a lot of events, so they felt that their job security was not a concern at the time. WWE, however, needed to cut cost.
June 26, 2014
Vince McMahon
Earlier this week, it was revealed that WWE has released their lead writer, and there are now interesting details on Jay Gibson. He was only on the job for approximately five months, which is a clear sign that Vince McMahon and company did not hire the right person. Gibson was also ridiculed a bit backstage by people because he really did not have a lot of knowledge on the WWE product.
June 19, 2014
Brodus Clay
"I hired Brodus Clay into the WWE, he is phenomenal. I remember I met him at a bar where he was a bouncer. There was a fight and I helped him out in the fight. That's how we met. He wanted to be a wrestler I told him to go to wrestling school. There's life after WWE... you're not going to have a job forever. It's the nature of the beast. Some guys have a long run, and yes they could have gotten a lot more out of them, but it's based on someone else's opinion." - Tommy Dreamer explaining how he met Brodus Clay
June 13, 2014
Jeff Jarrett
WWE released quite a bit of performers from their payroll today, but it looks like some of them could have a new job lined up pretty soon. Through Twitter, Jeff Jarrett revealed that he was paying close attention to the performers that WWE is letting go. He noted that the free agent depth in professional wrestling has gotten a lot deeper, which means that he will attempt to sign some of them to Global Force Wrestling.
June 12, 2014
Hornswoggle
During a recent interview with the Post Crescent, Hornswoggle revealed something rather interesting. It appears that a good amount of fans have turned on him, with many openly wondering why he still has a job with WWE. Hornswoggle has been taking it well, however. He states that he simply laughs it off. The widespread belief is that his job security is pretty high thanks to the upcoming release of the Leprechaun movie, which he stars in.
June 11, 2014
Triple H
"In some ways, I've been doing it behind the scenes for years. Vince McMahon used to say to me, 'When are you going to stop playing around and come do some real work?' Once I had kids and was looking to be home more and getting a little older, I saw it was time to make that transition. Vince sort of baited me in, saying, 'Why don't you come in to the office once or twice a week on your off days?' And the next thing I know it's, 'I need you to take over this department and come off the road full time.' Vince likes to call me to wrestle in case of emergency. I'm a character they can pull in here and there. But honestly, the less I do it at this point, the better. Even wrestling once or twice a year is hard, and I have to prepare for it as if I'm Floyd Mayweather preparing for a boxing match. It's a commitment, and trying to do that with a full-time job and a wife and kids is very time-consuming." - Triple H discusses his new role in WWE
June 1, 2014
Brutus Magnus
"Why do internet fans and gossip writers always have to find an ulterior motive for decisions? It baffles and frankly irritates the hell out of me that these people always have to assume the worst, and report it as fact. More needs to be done in both companies to combat internal sources talking to these parasites. I was asked by a promoter recently if I lost the title because there was heat between me and John Gaburick, our Executive VP of Talent and Creative. Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, 'Big' and I are able to freely express ourselves to one another, which means we get to speaks our minds properly, and we've had that relationship since he first arrived in TNA. "Furthermore, how ridiculous is that notion? Do you think if there was heat, that he would have put the title on me in the first place. On average, numbers went across the board while I had the strap. The job of the heel champion is to get the babyfaces over, and leave the place in a better state than he found it. Mission accomplished. "I can't wait to sink my teeth into my next chapter." - Brutus Magnus addressing rumors that he has backstage heat in TNA
May 28, 2014
Mick Foley
With WWE stock taking a major tumble recently, Mick Foley had an interesting theory as to the reason why. The former world heavyweight champion pointed the finger at Triple H and Stephanie McMahon, stating that some people might not be able to differentiate their on screen characters with their real life personas. Foley feels that HHH and Stephanie do such a good job at portraying heels.
May 20, 2014
Rosa Mendes
While her job security looked pretty bleak for a while there, Rosa Mendes should be with WWE for the foreseeable future, as she has just been announced as the newest cast member of Total Divas. Rosa will be joining the show when it returns to the air later on in September. She came very close to losing her job because of an alleged addiction to alcohol.
May 19, 2014
Batista
In a rather interesting move, Batista rejected a match against Daniel Bryan at Payback 2014. WWE wanted Batista to do the job for Bryan at the show, but the former world heavyweight champion refused because he felt that his character had already lost momentum by tapping out at Wrestlemania 30. Since he does not want to work the pay per view, WWE is allowing him to leave shortly after Extreme Rules 2014.
May 3, 2014
Steve Austin
Despite doing a good job of generating interest from fans the last time around, Tough Enough was put on the shelves. Now, it appears that the reality television show is being brought back as part of the WWE Network. No word yet on the involvement of Steve Austin, but since he did such a great job last time, management should be quite interested in bringing him back again as the host.
May 1, 2014
Kofi Kingston
When it comes to value to the company, Kofi Kingston has been on the rise backstage. Aside from being utilized in promotional campaigns for the WWE Network, the former Intercontinental Champion was heavily involved in charity work in New Orleans during Wrestlemania 30 and is routinely sent to other countries as an ambassador for WWE. His job security is extremely high right now.
May 1, 2014
Chris Jericho
"I only treat people the way that they treat me and I only met Warrior once and he was really gracious and really cool to me back in 1998 in WCW. He was there to do something with Hulk Hogan and I remember I went up to say hi to him and he went, 'Hey, Chris Jericho, I know you, you're doing a great job you're doing some good work.' I was a nobody at the time and I remember thinking, 'Wow, the Warrior likes me that totally smokes.' It made me feel that I must be doing something right and it gave me a little bit of a boost and I always remembered that." - Chris Jericho meets Ultimate Warrior backstage
April 29, 2014
Bray Wyatt
Since his son Bray Wyatt is rapidly rising up the ladder in WWE towards stardom, a lot of people have been asking about Mike Rotunda as of late. The man formerly known as Irwin R Schyster is still working for WWE, where he is a producer backstage at Monday Night Raw and Smackdown. Rotunda's job is to script out the matches and segments for the wrestlers.
April 18, 2014
Jesse Neal
"It is funny how people make fun about real jobs and wrestlers. We are human, too. I have a family to provide for. So, yes, I manned up and provide. The biggest joke of all is I get paid way more at Walmart than I ever did in TNA and on time. What a waste of time. Print that. Don't think that this is bitterness. I'm not on their show any more. Remember, I left them. They didn't leave me." - Jesse Neal talks about his new job in life
April 17, 2014
Titus ONeil
Rumors surfaced before Wrestlemania 30 that Titus ONeil was no longer going to be on the receiving end of a push in WWE. Those plans have not been changed, as management is planning on pushing several of the newer stars ahead of him. ONeil, however, has some job security, as WWE feels that he is a great representative at public appearances.
April 13, 2014
Christy Hemme
While she has been working backstage in a variety of roles over the past year, Christy Hemme has now been officially added to the creative department in TNA. The belief is that she will be specializing in the Knockouts division, where it will be her job to come up with stories for the girls. She might also have a hand in the ongoing story with Sam Shaw as well.
April 10, 2014
Gunner
"I still do Hangar 18 but I always liked Lex Luger as a kid and it had been a long time since we'd seen a finisher like that. It was something that I thought I could use, given my size. It also looks impressive so I decided to add it to my arsenal. I once had to pick up Luke Gallows, he's a big guy and sometimes you think 'that's bad on the back' because your compressing your spine. As for Hanger 18, I always give props to Brock Lesnar because that's his move and I use the F5 with the utmost respect but that move is rough on your back too." - Gunner talks about his finishing move
May 6, 2014
MVP
Earlier this week, news came out that Kurt Angle had been added as a last minute addition to the live events that TNA is holding this upcoming weekend.

May 2, 2014

James Storm
In a bloody I Quit match at TNA Sacrifice 2014, Gunner was able to force James Storm into calling off the match by breaking off a big shard of glass and threatening to jam it into the head of his former tag team partner. A very bloody Gunner refused to quit, even though he took quite the beating.

April 20, 2014
James Storm
With so many of their performer contracts expiring this year, TNA officials have been busy with negotiations and signings. The latest person to put pen to paper is Gunner, a rising star in the promotion. With the deal, he is expected to remain with the company for a couple of years, and he is also expected to continue on his push since splitting with James Storm.
April 16, 2014
James Storm
While the company has recently suffered the loss of AJ Styles and Chris Sabin, it appears that TNA has been able to retain one of their longtime stars. James Storm has signed a new multiple year deal to stick around. The former world heavyweight champion is expected to be given a nice push after he finishes up his program with Gunner.
April 13, 2014
Gunner
Internally, TNA is hoping that they can build up Gunner over the next several months, so that he can become a title challenger for Brutus Magnus and the world heavyweight championship. His program with James Storm and fantastic match at TNA Lockdown 2014 helped increase his credibility in the eyes of the fans. Management will be doing more of that as well.
March 15, 2014

March 9, 2014
Gunner
There are talks that James Storm will be having quite a bit role at Slammiversary, which was just recently announced to be taking place in Dallas. The feeling within TNA is that his southern gimmick would be quite the draw for fans in Texas. He is currently engaged in a program with Gunner, and that feud could be escalated into a top tier one by June.
March 7, 2014
James Storm
While he is no longer feuding with Mr Anderson, who has been moved into a program with Christy Hemme and Sam Shaw now, Bully Ray will be facing his nemesis once again.

Gunner

Another person that TNA wants to push to the main event scene soon is Gunner. Many backstage feel that he can be elevated enough to be viewed as a worthy challenger for Brutus Magnus and the world title. The success of his story line with James Storm should help dictate that.
