Since a lot of wrestlers have been making a decent amount of money doing these conventions, Jake Roberts decided to contact the people in charge of the Wizard World Comic Con, as the WWE legend wanted to work the event in Chicago.

During a recent interview at Wizard World Comic Con, Sheamus was asked who he would like to face at Wrestlemania, and he was quick to choose Daniel Bryan, noting that the two of them deserve to have a match that last longer than a minute.

CM Punk
Earlier this month, Jason David Frank gained the interest of professional wrestling fans when he challenged CM Punk, who recently walked out of WWE, to an MMA fight, and there's a very slight chance that he might be able to challenge him in person.

March 3, 2014
Ric Flair
"I've never been married, I don't have any kids, so at this point in time any and every single interaction that I've ever had with Ric Flair, namely when I got to wrestle him, is considered to me be the greatest day and greatest night of my entire life. Like I said I don't think I've grasped and really tried to understand exactly what has happened in such a short time and when I realize it I think I'm going to explode. That was the greatest time I've ever had in my life." - Jay Lethal discusses his biggest dream in the business
February 20, 2014
Randy Savage
Taking heavy influences from the design of the Grand Theft Auto video game, Jay Lethal has an awesome new shirt. It basically features him in cartoon mode, where he is Undertaker, Hulk Hogan and Randy Savage. It also appears that his character is wearing the mask previously worn by Sami Zayn as well.
February 9, 2014
Jay Lethal

Despite being just 28 years of age and being viewed as one of the better performers on the independent wrestling circuit, there has been very little interest in WWE of bringing former TNA star Jay Lethal on board. He will more than likely stick with ROH for the time being.

January 7, 2014
Lilian Garcia
While she continues to fulfill her weekly duties as the announcer for WWE, Lilian Garcia is still finding time in her busy schedule to focus on her singing career. She noted on Twitter that she is back in Los Angeles this week and shooting a new music video. She formed a new band a couple of months back, and they have been performing frequently in Las Vegas.
April 18, 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
Cody Rhodes
In an interesting move, WWE had Dean Ambrose defend the United States Heavyweight Championship at a live event in Saudi Arabia this week. He successfully retained the belt in a fatal four way that consisted of Cody Rhodes, Kofi Kingston and Dolph Ziggler. Ambrose has rarely been allowed to defend the US title over the last couple of months.
April 18, 2014
Batista
For the longest time there, MVP was the longest reigning WWE United States Heavyweight Champion, but that mark looks to be broken soon if Dean Ambrose can hold on to the belt a little while longer. The Shield member rarely defends the belt, but WWE could opt to include it in the story line against Triple H, Randy Orton and Batista.
April 18, 2014
Enzo Amore
While he is not a well known name to WWE fans yet, Enzo Amore is currently in the plans with the company. The developmental wrestler recently made his return to WWE NXT from a leg injury that he suffered towards the end of 2013. Management feels that he has some potential, even though he is not currently anywhere near the head of the line to be called up to the main roster.
April 18, 2014
Jonathan Coachman
If things go as expected, then Renee Young is expected to follow in the footsteps of Todd Grisham and Jonathan Coachman, two former WWE on screen personalities who ended up with ESPN.

April 18, 2014
AJ Styles
In an effort to show new fans that the company is capable of drawing in the big name performers in the industry, TNA has added alumni profiles to their roster page on their official website.

April 18, 2014
Rockstar Spud
Over the last several weeks, TNA officials have been busy, trying to secure long term deals on as many of their performers as they possibly can.

Spud is expected to be utilized in the ring more often in the near future.
April 18, 2014
Vickie Guerrero

She has already given notice to management, and she still continues to work on her college degree and business ventures. Guerrero wants to maintain a good working relationship with WWE.
April 17, 2014
Antonio Cesaro
A lot of fans have noticed that Antonio Cesaro has been coming out to the ring in silence since joining up with Paul Heyman. While it has generated a little buzz for WWE, that is not the long term plan. Management is currently trying to find the right entrance theme for Cesaro. He is being given a huge push, so everything has to be just right.
April 17, 2014
El Torito
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. The two of them will be featured on Smackdown this week, and there could be more matches coming up. WWE had the two of them training together for a couple of weeks to ensure that the match quality is decent.
April 17, 2014
Rock
While speaking to the media in Australia this week, Rock revealed that he wants to be in the next James Bond movie. The former WWE champion is a big fan of Daniel Craig, who plays the title role.

April 17, 2014
Orlando Jordan
A lot has changed since Orlando Jordan came out of the closet and revealed to the wrestling world that he was gay. The former WWE star shocked a lot of people when he announced that he was marrying a woman back in November. Now, Jordan has revealed that he is expecting a child soon.
April 17, 2014
Angelina Love
Earlier this week, it was revealed that Angelina Love, who recently made her return to TNA, is on the cast of an upcoming movie called Epidemic, which is a film about zombies taking over the earth after humans destroyed an asteroid with a big missile. Another person in the movie is Kelly Kelly, a former WWE diva.
April 17, 2014
Rey Mysterio
While rumors have been floating around that Rey Mysterio has left WWE after skipping Monday Night Raw to take his family to Hawaii this week, there are still talks that he is still with the company. On a leaked script that managed to find its way to the internet, Mysterio is listed on there as being injured. His name still remains on the official talent roster.
April 17, 2014
Brock Lesnar
It was heavily speculated that Brock Lesnar would be taking time off after Wrestlemania 30, and it looks like the rumors are true. WWE has removed him from their list of available performers backstage. There are talks that he could be out until Summerslam 2014, unless management can convince him to work some dates before then.
April 17, 2014
Great Khali
While he worked the battle royal at Wrestlemania 30, the Great Khali is not actively back on the road with WWE after all. The former world heavyweight champion is being given another four weeks off. He is scheduled to return to television in the middle of May. No word yet on why he is being give time off, but there are some rumors that he is injured.
April 17, 2014
Fandango
One of the big reasons why WWE put Layla El with Fandango is because Summer Rae is taking a couple of weeks off of television to film a sequel to the Marine with the Miz. WWE wanted to keep Fandango on television, but they did not feel that his act would be nearly as popular without a female companion. Thus, Layla was chosen to take over the role.
April 17, 2014
Drew McIntyre
On WWE Main Event, Hornswoggle teamed up with Jinder Mahal and Drew McIntyre, which has caused some speculations to arise. Rumors over the past several weeks have stated that Heath Slater was unhappy backstage because he was not receiving a push. However, his absence on this show was unrelated, as Slater missed the show because he is heading to Saudi Arabia for a tour with WWE.
April 17, 2014
AJ Lee
One of the biggest reasons why WWE opted to put the Divas championship on Paige is because AJ Lee really needed to take some time off from the road. Aside from being stuck in the figurative storm after CM Punk walked out on the company, AJ has been on the road constantly over the last year. Both her body and mind needed the break.
