Jake Roberts
In a sign of just how popular and mainstream Jake Roberts was during the 1980s, several media outlets provided coverage of the WWE legend being sent to the hospital this week.

CM Punk
For those of you that are clinging on to the smaller glimmer of hope that CM Punk will return to WWE some day, there may possibly be some good news this week. Punk posted a warm message towards Paul Heyman, his former on screen manager and good friend in real life, on Twitter. That post was noticed by Triple H, who made it one of his Favorites. For those that are not keen to social media, that means that he approves of the message. It also shows that HHH isn't as upset with Punk as some people think he is.

Generally, Tara is usually upbeat and fun on social media, but the former TNA Knockout is going through some drama right now. She posted the phone number for a woman named Liz on Twitter.

Ryback
Since he was no longer a topic of discussion, Ryback managed to have his return to Monday Night Raw fly under the radar. That, in part, helped to generate a much better reception for the former main event performer than expected. WWE fans in the arena chanted his catchphrase and cheered for him, while online fans helped his name become a trend on various social media websites.

Alberto Del Rio
WWE is looking for a new social media manager. While that normally would not generate much interest, it does so here in this case because the previous guy that held the spot was Cody Barbierri, the allegedly racist employee that played a huge part in the controversial Alberto Del Rio release earlier in the year. No word yet on whether or not the release is related to the incident, but more on the story should be revealed in the upcoming days and weeks.

Gene Snitsky
Through social media, Gene Snitsky has expressed his dissatisfaction with TNA for not bringing him on board full time.

October 19, 2014
Sin Cara
In a rather peculiar move, WWE opted to inform the local media in Mexico that the Sin Cara was being performed by the original wrestler. That is not the case at all, since he was released some time ago. Many in Mexico are already aware of that fact and know that he is currently working for AAA under a different name. No word yet on why WWE opted to make that claim.

He simply licenses out his name for them to use.
September 26, 2014
Alberto Del Rio
Trash to one man might be viewed as a treasure to another. When Alberto Del Rio was fired from WWE due to a backstage incident, AAA salivated at the thought of building their company around him. When the two sides were legally allowed to sign a contract, management quickly jumped on it and made Del Rio the face of their company. Thus far, they have been pleased with the results because Del Rio carries himself extremely well, especially during media interviews.

It looks like the deal is now over, as reports has surfaced that WWE was not interested in renewing the contract.
September 3, 2014
Alexander Rusev
Rumors are floating around right now that there is a good amount of backstage heat from management towards Zack Ryder. Some are even pointing to the fact that he was squashed by Alexander Rusev recently as evidence that WWE is upset with him for comments that he has made on social media. The belief is that Ryder is on thin ice nowadays, as his name value has been reduced greatly by being utilized sparsely over the last couple of years.
September 2, 2014
Alberto Del Rio
As expected, WWE has instructed their performers to remain silent if they are asked about the backstage incident that led to the release of Alberto Del Rio. When asked by the media, Sheamus explicitly stated that he knew nothing of the situation, even though most everyone in the company is aware of what happened. Management does not want to run the risk of starting a legal battle with Del Rio.
August 17, 2014

Aries is even promoting Impact Wrestling on there, so it looks like he's back on good terms with the company.

Kizarny
Rumors are floating around that Jake Roberts is in a coma.

Kizarny also took to Facebook to further explain the situation. He stated that Roberts is heavily sedated because the procedure to combat pneumonia is pretty painful. Kizarny also reiterated that Roberts was not in a coma.
