Ryback
Through his Twitter account, Ryback revealed to fans that it has now been 18 days since his surgery, and he has been recovering extremely well from his still unknown injury, which is rumored to involve his groin. He should be making a return to WWE very soon, as he is now pain free. He might not be rushed back, though, as management really doesn't have a story ready for him.

Brie Bella
Brie Bella recently gave WWE fans some hope when she revealed that Daniel Bryan was no longer going to need a second surgery to repair his neck injury. Many were expecting him to return by January, which happens to be the month that Royal Rumble 2015 takes place.

All those years of taking vicious bumps in a wrestling ring have taken a toll on Mick Foley. The WWE legend revealed that he is going in for back surgery this month.

Daniel Bryan
Yesterday, it was revealed that WWE had pulled Daniel Bryan from the upcoming European tour in November. The former world heavyweight champion was scheduled to make appearances at the live events on that continent.

Konnan
As many are already aware, Konnan has been having issues with his hips over the last couple of years. It's the reason why he has been forced to stay away from the ring. The former WCW star revealed that he wants one final match after his next surgery. Since he is involved with AAA, the belief is that his match will be held for that promotion. No word yet on who he wants as his final opponent.
August 18, 2014
Shelton Benjamin
Another speed bump has presented itself in the career of Shelton Benjamin. The former Intercontinental Champion has suffered a serious knee injury while working in Japan. He is expected to miss a couple of months of action because of the surgery. Benjamin was sidelined earlier in the year when he had surgery on his elbow, but he recovered much quicker than expected from that injury.

Santino Marella
It looks like Santino Marella isn't quite ready to give up on his in ring career just yet. The former Intercontinental Champion stated that he will be undergoing surgery to repair his neck. Marella also stated that he is going to make a comeback attempt after spending a couple of months in recovery. He did not mention WWE specifically, but the belief is that the company has left the door open for him.

Brie Bella
In order to help promote her upcoming match at Summerslam 2014 against Stephanie McMahon, Brie Bella is on the road this weekend for WWE. The company is sending her and Nikki Bella to the Wizard World event in San Antonio. Brie is still on a reduced schedule, as management wants to give her time to be with Daniel Bryan while he is still recovering from his neck surgery.
August 2, 2014
Daniel Bryan
With his health being quite the uncertainty at this point in time, there are all sorts of rumors floating around about the return of Daniel Bryan. The latest one has the former WWE champion coming back at Royal Rumble 2015. Much of that is speculation, though, since Bryan needs to go in for another surgery, and there's no telling how his body will react to the procedure.
August 2, 2014
Daniel Bryan
Initially, Daniel Bryan had surgery to repair a seriously damaged neck. However, doctors found further issues for the former WWE champion recently. His shoulders are pretty messed up as well. Additional procedures could be required to repair all of the damage to his body. Bryan is out indefinitely, and there is no timetable backstage for his return.
July 10, 2014
Daniel Bryan
Some rumors have surfaced that Daniel Bryan is returning to WWE soon, and the cause of the confusion is over the fact that he was spotted in the ring with his wrestling gear on last night. The former world heavyweight champion was simply filming a public service announcement. Even though he informed the fans in the arena that he might still need another surgery to repair his damaged neck, some were still under the belief that he was coming back soon.
July 2, 2014
Jack Swagger
Thanks to an errant throw into the guard rail by Jack Swagger, Wade Barrett has underwent ligament reconstruction surgery. WWE is reporting that the operation went well and that Barrett is at home resting now. No official word yet on how long he will be gone, but rumors are floating that it will be for several months, which is why WWE stripped him of the Intercontinental Championship on Monday Night Raw this week.
July 2, 2014
Daniel Bryan
While there is still a chance that he was working the audience during his speech at Money in the Bank 2014, the topic of Daniel Bryan require a second surgery to repair his neck is a major issue for WWE. Reports are surfacing that if it is true that he needs to go under the knife again, there is a very good chance that Bryan could miss up to a year of action.
June 30, 2014
Scott Hall
A lot of rumors have been floating around as of late in regards to the condition that Scott Hall has been in at conventions and independent wrestling shows. Promoters and fans have been accusing the former WWE star of being in really bad shape, which has led to speculations that he might be losing his battle against sobriety. Sean Waltman, however, has been telling people that Hall is under heavy medication because of recurring pain from his hip surgery.
June 26, 2014
Daniel Bryan
In a rather interesting bit of news, reports are surfacing that the audience at Monday Night Raw did not react much when WWE announced that Daniel Bryan would be making an appearance at Money in the Bank 2014. That comes as a surprise because he was really one of the most popular guys in the industry before he left to have surgery on his injured neck. It should be interesting to see how fans react to him at the pay per view itself.

Rock
Not too long ago, Rock revealed to the world that his cousin Tamina Snuka was one of the hardest working and most determined people he knows. He noted that she was a single mother of two, who went from being a janitor to being a WWE star. Her determination is showing yet again because Tamina is recovering much quicker than expected from her knee surgery, which was expected to keep her out of action until the end of the year.

Tamina Snuka
If you're a big fan of Tamina Snuka, get used to not seeing her on television for the rest of the year. The WWE diva just had knee surgery to repair a torn ACL, and she is expected to be sidelined for the next six months. No word yet on when the injury actually occurred, but her last televised match was on the final episode of Smackdown in May.

Daniel Bryan
Some disturbing news is coming out of WWE. Word going around is that Daniel Bryan has been losing strength in his arm. The world heavyweight champion has been trying to rehabilitate after having much needed neck surgery, but things are not progressing as well as WWE had hoped. There is a very good chance that he will be missing more time than initially expected.

Jim Cornette
Anyone that has heard Jim Cornette speak over the last decade should already know that he absolutely hates Vince Russo. The former WWE manager routinely sways regular conversations into diatribes against Russo. Through Twitter, Russo offered to make pace with Cornette. As expected, though, Cornette wants nothing to do with that. He refuses to end the backstage heat between the two.

Bobby Eaton
One of the biggest mysteries in professional wrestling involves Dennis Condrey and his decision to walk away from the Midnight Express. When asked about the situation, Bobby Eaton said that his former tag team partner basically left without saying a word to him for two years. Condrey reportedly did not inform Jim Cornette or the NWA, either.

Jim Cornette
While a lot of performers will say that they always wanted to be involved in the professional wrestling industry, Jim Cornette actually means it. The legendary NWA manager started working in the business when he was just 14 years old, serving as a photographer, ring announcer, magazine correspondent and as a public relations person.

Colt Cabana
"Yeah, a lot of people tweeted it towards me. I think he is entitled to his opinion. You can't fault people for having an opinion. Luckily for me, I've never been put in a position to hire and fire people, and he was in that position and he can't hire everybody. I'm one of the people that Jim Cornette didn't want. Obviously the people that he didn't want aren't going to be happy about it. That's life. I could hold a grudge, but I don't. I understand that you have to hire and you have to fire and the ones that you fire aren't going to be happy. It's about going on and moving on. Luckily, I've done way bigger and better things since leaving Ring of Honor. Maybe it was a mistake by them for letting me go, and maybe it wasn't if they're happy with the direction that they've gone. I don't hold any grudge against Jim. I'm almost kind of thankful that I was able to go on to better places in my career." - Colt Cabana addresses the backstage heat he has with Jim Cornette

Jim Cornette
During a recent interview, Jim Cornette was asked about his backstage heat with Kevin Steen. The longtime NWA manager stated that he was not sure why Steen hated him.

Jim Cornette
While Jim Cornette managed to gain some attention recently by stating that he would accept a hall of fame induction from WWE, there is very little chance of the Midnight Express being given the honors. Management really does not feel that Bobby Eaton, Stan Lane and Dennis Condrey are marketable enough to their current fan base.
March 11, 2014
Jim Cornette
Despite all of his issues with the company, Jim Cornette recently revealed in an interview that he would be open to a hall of fame induction for himself and the Midnight Express if WWE were to ask him. The belief is that the company would induct Bobby Eaton, Dennis Condrey and Stan Lane together if they decided to go that route.

Brock Lesnar
"With Brock I'll be honest with you, he was getting paid about four or five times more than everyone else in the developmental programme because of who he was. You don't come across an athletic specimen like that who won the NCAA Heavyweight Championship everyday. However he was not a natural wrestling fan, not a natural wrestling student, he was a bit boring in the ring to be honest because he wasn't used to being a showman. Also for a world class athlete I didn't think he was trying five times as hard as his salary." - Jim Cornette discusses Brock Lesnar as a developmental wrestler

Jim Cornette
"John came from California, we got him really early on in his career but you could tell he was a natural, I thought he would actually be this generations version of a Ric Flair. He was a heel then, and he was so cocky, arrogant and good looking he had the physique and the genetics, he could talk but they decided to go a different direction with him and he got over just as big on the other side." - Jim Cornette discusses John Cena as a developmental wrestler
February 12, 2014
Vince McMahon
While most fans have probably never even heard of him, Bobby Fulton did get a brief stint in WWE. It was during the summer of 1997 when he was given tryout matches against Tommy Rogers, whom he teamed with as the Fantastics. He stated that Jim Cornette used them to convince Vince McMahon to start a light heavyweight division.

Dixie Carter

"You know they are changing their website, you haven't heard about this? You haven't heard about TNA changing their website? Instead of TNAWrestling.com it is going to be TNAWrestling.org because it's a non-profit organization. Actually they have come up with a new strategy for 2014, Dixie Carter keeps teasing these big, major ideas. She finally hit on a genius idea that I think is going to turn TNA around in 2014. Starting on the first, they are going to let all of the fans in the shows for free and charge them to get out."

Triple H

"Well, I would love to give you an opinion, but I am clean and sober from WWE programming for several years now, and I do read what is going on, but it seems like it's more of the same. In my opinion, he was never the star, he was always the guy that worked with the guy that drew the money, and he continues to push his boring self down the people's throats. You know, what more can I say, I haven't seen it first hand, but at least he got a haircut."
