Vince McMahon
Some rumors floated around this week that WWE was looking to sell their entire tape library to Warner Bros.

Vince McMahon
Despite losing millions and millions of dollars, Vince McMahon still has a way of generating hope among investors. WWE stock is currently on the rise, and the reported reason for that is because people think that the subscribers count for the WWE Network is expected to skyrocket since it has now been launched internationally. Management has not been promoting the international launch too hard for fear of being accused of misleading investors again.

Stephanie McMahon
Before the WWE Network was shoved down the throats of fans on a weekly basis, the company was promoting a social media website called Tout. They constantly mentioned the service, and they had several of their performers utilizing it to interact with the fans. WWE invested approximately $5000 into the company and signed a two year agreement. Stephanie McMahon was even on their board of directors. It looks like the deal is now over, as reports has surfaced that WWE was not interested in renewing the contract.

Brock Lesnar
With Night of Champions 2014 being a crucial pay per view in terms of drawing in WWE Network subscribers, management is going to be stacking the deck a bit. They knew that they needed their two biggest draws in the main event. That's why it has now been officially announced that John Cena has activated his rematch clause against Brock Lesnar, and the two will tangle again for the world heavyweight championship.

Vince McMahon
When Vince McMahon decided to take the WWE Network north of the border, they decided to partner up with Rogers Communications.

Vince McMahon
Apparently, there is a deal in place where the wrestlers are supposed to receive a portion of the money made from the WWE Network. No word yet on how big of a percentage that Vince McMahon is giving out. Unfortunately for the performers, though, no money is being paid out right now because the online service is losing a ton of money and forcing the company to release employees left and right.
August 15, 2014
Batista
The success of Guardians of the Galaxy has changed things up a bit backstage in WWE. It has given Batista a bit more leverage now that his name value has increased with the general public. Management is being careful with how they spend their money nowadays because of the major losses due to the WWE Network, but many feel that they would pay for Batista because he can bring a lot of attention to the company.

Vince McMahon
Fans in Canada have access to the WWE Network now, but it is not like what their counterparts in the United States are used to. Instead of it being an online service, Vince McMahon made a deal with Rogers that puts his product on television. Fans will have access to the scheduled programming, but they will not be able to browse through the catalog. It is also $11.99 instead of $9.99. In addition to that, Rogers is only available in a portion of the country, so everyone else is left out. That has caused some criticism from fans online.
August 13, 2014
Vince McMahon
Initially, rumors floated around that the WWE Network was going to be available on a monthly basis without commitment to subscribers for $19.99. However, it looks like Vince McMahon and company are going to reduce that down to $12.99. Many felt that doubling the price would be too much for people, so the new price was agreed upon. The belief is that a lot of subscribers who were on the six month commitment may switch over to the monthly plan.
August 12, 2014
Evan Bourne
It appears that a free subscription of the WWE Network is being given to employees who are being given a release from the company. Evan Bourne revealed that management gave him a full account when he was let go. The belief is that others were afforded the same benefit as well. Management is probably doing this as a way of keeping things well with departing employees.
August 10, 2014
Stephanie McMahon
Stephanie McMahon and Triple H have revealed a bit of news about the WWE Network that might help the company secure more subscribers. The real life couple stated that episodes of WCW Nitro are being added to the online service.

Vince McMahon
After announcing the disappointing subscribers count for the WWE Network, management had to let quite a bit of employees go. Among them were fourteen members of the WWE Magazine staff.

Vince McMahon
One of the problems that Vince McMahon and company is trying to fix involves people sharing WWE Network accounts. There's a good amount of people doing that, and it has hurt the subscribers count a bit. Some backstage believe that they might have been closer to the million subscribers mark if people were prevented from doing that. Since the company has now public acknowledged the problem, look for a solution to come soon.
August 4, 2014
CM Punk
While there was a bit of rumblings backstage that WWE was going to pursue legal action against CM Punk for walking out of his contract, rumors are floating around that management is hesitant to do so. For starters, now might not be a good time to sink money into a lawsuit since there are so many employees being released. Secondly, Vince McMahon is really focused on the WWE Network at the moment, so a lawsuit might be a bit of a distraction from the CEO.

Travis Tyler
When Vince McMahon announced that they were releasing seven percent of their workforce due to the under performing WWE Network, many within the company feared for their jobs. Today, five developmental wrestlers were given their releases. Garrett Dylan, Travis Tyler, Slate Randall, Mac Miles and Dani Jackson are no longer under contract with WWE.

Triple H
The odd saga between Sin Cara and WWE continued this week, as the masked performer was upset with Hunico portraying his character with Scooby Doo on Monday Night Raw. He even went as far as to send messages to Vince McMahon, Stephanie McMahon and Triple H via Twitter to vent his frustrations, but he wisely deleted the messages shortly afterwards.
March 25, 2014
Hunico
While there is a legal storm brewing between the two sides, there is now a chance that WWE might not be willing to fight with Sin Cara over the use of the name, as the value of the character has dropped tremendously over the last couple of weeks. When merchandise sales remained strong, management utilized Hunico in the role to help keep that going. The numbers have since dropped.
March 14, 2014
Hunico
While a lot of fans have already forgotten about him, a few still wonder about his whereabouts and status within WWE.

His partner, Hunico, frequently works under the mask as the new Sin Cara, for those that are not aware.
March 2, 2014
Yoshi Tatsu
There are those in the company that still believe that Vince McMahon is keeping wrestlers on the roster because of Linda McMahon and her ongoing political career. Guys like Evan Bourne, Ezekiel Jackson, Hunico, JTG and Yoshi Tatsu are still on the contract and receiving a salary from the company despite not doing much.
February 24, 2014
Hunico
Hunico might be cashing in a nice pay per view bonus check at Wrestlemania 30 this year, as WWE still has interest in using the Sin Cara character at the event. Merchandise sales have remained strong, and the company wants to continue to capitalize. There may be a lawsuit coming from the original performer, though.
February 12, 2014

January 28, 2014
