Josh Mathews
Rumors spread rather quickly this week about Josh Mathews joining TNA when pictures of the announcer leaving the company headquarters appeared online. While no official confirmation has been made on the signing, the belief is that a contract has already been reached. While there is still a slight chance that he might be wrestling for the company, the widespread belief is that he is coming in as an announcer.

Austin Aries
Add Austin Aries to the long list of performers who may be leaving TNA once their contract expires. Reports surfaced recently that he was not one of the names advertised for an upcoming tour of England, and that led to the speculation that the former world heavyweight champion was not going to have his contract renewed by the company because they are still in limbo over a television contract.
September 22, 2014
Gail Kim
With the company still in limbo on a new television contract, whenever a veteran performer has a contract that is expiring, rumors float around that the person will be leaving TNA. Another name to add to the list is Gail Kim. Long viewed as one of the best female performers in the industry, her future is unclear, as her contract expires before the end of the year.
September 21, 2014
Chris Jericho
Reports surfaced over the last couple of days that Chris Jericho was going to be working his last show for WWE at Night of Champions 2014 in a match against Randy Orton. There is now speculation that the former world heavyweight champion might stick around shortly after that before leaving, similar to what Rob Van Dam did before taking his break from WWE recently.
September 17, 2014
Bully Ray
When his contract was expiring, a lot of fans wondered what TNA would do with Bully Ray and his stories since he was leaving the company. The two sides have reached an agreement to continue working together, so that the stories can be resolved. Bully Ray will also work the Bound For Glory 2014 event and be inducted into the TNA Hall of Fame before parting ways.
September 15, 2014
Jimmy Uso
Motherhood could be calling a diva away from WWE soon. Naomi Knight recently revealed that she and Jimmy Uso are interested in starting a family. They wish to have four children together. That has sparked speculations that Naomi could be leaving the company in the near future. For what it's worth, she did state that she does not want to leave WWE until she captures the Divas Championship first.
September 5, 2014
Bully Ray
Reports surfaced not too long ago that Bully Ray was leaving TNA, as his contract was set to expire and a new deal could not be reached between the two sides. Apparently, he is going to remain on good terms with management, as the former world heavyweight champion is still being advertised for Bound For Glory 2014. Team 3D is scheduled to be inducted into the hall of fame that evening, but it would not come as a shock if Bully ended up working a match on the pay per view.
August 30, 2014
ODB
In regards to the release of ODB from TNA, reports are surfacing that the two sides are leaving on good terms. She was not released because of backstage heat or anything. In fact, her contract had expired, and management opted not to renew her deal at this time. The belief is that the two sides could come to an agreement down the line, but nothing is expected to happen until TNA can secure a new television deal.
August 29, 2014
Velvet Sky
There are rumors floating around right now that Velvet Sky is going to be leaving TNA soon. However, the speculations stem from an overreaction to something that might really be insignificant. The Knockout changed her profile biography on Twitter. She removed TNA from there and replaced it with other words, as there is a word limit set on the biography. As of right now, her departure from the company is far from confirmed.
August 25, 2014
AJ Lee
Rumors are floating around right now that AJ Lee is going to be leaving WWE very soon. Those speculations were further flamed last night when she dropped the Divas Championship to Paige at Summerslam 2014. The root of the rumors stems from a comment that Jim Ross made on his blog. It was just something that the long time commentator was speculating upon.
August 18, 2014
Bully Ray
Rumors are floating around right now that Bully Ray has informed the TNA locker room that he will be leaving the company. That comes as a shock because the former world heavyweight champion had been gaining a bit of power backstage. His contract expires in September, and negotiations are said to be ongoing. The company has been locking up a handful of wrestlers over the last few weeks, so it's not impossible for them to work out another contract with Bully.
August 17, 2014
Daniel Bryan
While a lot of fans are under the impression that his return to WWE is a certainty, Daniel Bryan is not nearly as confident. He understands his body well enough, and he has spoken with quite a few doctors on the matter. Bryan is leaving open the possibility that he may never wrestle again because of the injured neck. The former world heavyweight champion has dismissed rumors that he will be back by Royal Rumble 2015.
August 16, 2014
David Otunga
When Jennifer Hudson told the media that she was not pleased with idea of David Otunga leaving the family for extended periods of time by returning to a full time schedule with WWE, many were under the belief that it was just for public relations. However, there are those that believe that it might be a legitimate thing, as Otunga has yet to hit the road again. WWE is said to be interested in a return.
August 13, 2014
Vince McMahon
Michael Luisi has sold 3890 shares of WWE stock. Normally, that would not be big news, but since he is the president of WWE Studios, it has created some interest. Seeing an executive within the company selling his shares has created a lot of speculations, with some people thinking that he is leaving the company soon. A lot more fans than usual have taken interest in the stocks since it was revealed that Vince McMahon lost a ton of money.
August 7, 2014
Alexander Rusev
While the company would probably never admit it, there are those that believe that WWE is simply setting up Alexander Rusev for a potential feud with Kurt Angle. The Olympic gold medalist has openly talked about leaving TNA and returning to WWE for quite some time now. His patriotic gimmick would be a perfect foil for the evil pro Russian character.
August 3, 2014
Matt Hardy
Rumors are floating around that Matt Hardy is leaving ROH very soon. His contract is set to expire, and the belief is that neither side is interested in signing an extension. Ring of Honor officials are said to be upset with Hardy for working a couple of episodes of Impact Wrestling for TNA recently. There are also rumors that Hardy is headed back to TNA on a more permanent basis.
July 12, 2014

July 9, 2014
Bray Wyatt
Tour dates for Fozzy have now been finalized and announced. The band starts touring heavily in September, which means that Chris Jericho will be leaving around that time period. The former undisputed champion currently is scheduled to work WWE events during the month of September, but he has nothing listed afterwards. The belief is that Jericho is simply here to put over Bray Wyatt.

Speculations are that he will be gone before the year is over and that WWE paid him a hefty sum to come back.

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
Diego
For those that are wondering about the fate of 3MB after Jinder Mahal and Drew McIntyre received their release from WWE earlier in the week, it appears that the company will keep Heath Slater and Hornswoggle together.

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
Mr Anderson
During a recent interview while in Wisconsin for a live event, Hornswoggle revealed the person that helped him get hired with WWE. It was actually Mr Anderson, who now works for TNA.

For those of you that did not watch the Payback 2014 kickoff match, El Torito defeated Hornswoggle with a flying top rope moonsault.

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.
