Alundra Blayze
While some have dismissed it as being just a rumor, there are actually some Alundra Blayze nude photos floating around somewhere. Back in 1987, she posed for Playboy magazine. However, an invitation to go wrestle with All Japan prevented her from signing a release form, so the pictures were never published. They remain in existence somewhere.

April 6, 2014
JTG
While morale is really low backstage due to the recent and severe drop in royalty checks, WWE performers are not speaking out on the matter because they are afraid of Vince McMahon. Many saw what happened to JTG when he voiced his opinion about low pay per view bonus checks. The former Cryme Tyme member was buried for more than a year and recently was given a release form his contract.
July 14, 2014
Rock
It is no secret that WWE would love for the Rock to be the centerpiece attraction at Wrestlemania 31. However, the possibility of that happening is becoming more and more unclear by the day. The studios have decided to move the release date of Fast and Furious 7, which features Rock in a big role, up a bit. It will now be shown in the theaters a few days after Wrestlemania. That means that the Rock will be needed to travel the world to do promotion for the film. His availability to WWE is in question.
July 10, 2014
Vince McMahon
When WWE stocks tanked really badly earlier this year, there were rumors floating around that Vince McMahon wanted his company to cut approximately $20 million in spending. That number has now been confirmed. No word yet on how close WWE has gotten to that goal, but the release of several performers from their contracts helped out quite a bit. More wrestlers could be let go in the near future to get closer to the $20 million mark.
July 7, 2014
Vickie Guerrero
Anyone that follows professional wrestling closely, knows that WWE performers spend a ridiculous amount of time on the road for the company. Vickie Guerrero became one of the latest people to grow weary of that lifestyle and requested her release from her contract. Now that she is free of that hectic obligation, the former WWE diva is now on vacation in Hawaii.
July 6, 2014
Drew McIntyre
While a lot of fans were under the impression that he would be on the receiving end of a contract release along with Jinder Mahal and Drew McIntyre, Heath Slater has managed to survive and is still with WWE. Unfortunately, though, the company really does not have any plans for him at the moment. He's basically just a filler guy at live events, teaming up with various partners for the time being.
July 6, 2014
Vince McMahon
Since the company has been undergoing budget cuts, a lot of things are changing in WWE. In addition to several long time performers being given a release from their contract, Vince McMahon and company have also scaled things back on the WWE Network. Tough Enough has been pushed back, and there might not be a second season of Legends House. At one point in time, it was a certainty that the show would be receiving another season.
July 6, 2014
David Otunga
Earlier in this week, Zack Ryder revealed to fans that WWE is no longer selling his merchandise. The belief is that it is a part of the company's plan to diminish his name value for when they decide to release him from his contract. Since the start of the year, Ryder has only been utilized eight times on television, all of which were losses. He hasn't had a victory on Monday Night Raw or Smackdown since December of 2012, when he pinned David Otunga on Raw.
July 5, 2014
Cameron
Sensing that they were going to receive quite a bit of backlash for overreacting to the arrest and having double standards for their performers, WWE has decided to reinstate Emma after giving her a release earlier in the day. Some have cited the previous arrest of Jack Swagger and Cameron, who actually attempted to bribe a police officer, as a reason why WWE was forced to change their minds.
July 2, 2014
Emma
A day after she was arrested for shoplifting, WWE has released Emma from her contract. There were those in the company that believed that she would be allowed to ride out the storm because the item stolen was not very expensive, but it turns out that Vince McMahon and company needed to make an example of her. Since she was not very high up on the card, it was easier for WWE to release her.
July 2, 2014
Jillian Hall
Through social media, Jillian Hall revealed to her fans that she is back to working on an autobiography. There is some skepticism as to how well the book will sell, as her name value drops the longer she has been away from WWE. It has been nearly four years since her release from the company. It also does not appear to be much interest from TNA in signing her, either. That will make it much more difficult for her to move the books.
June 29, 2014
Bo Dallas
Earlier this week, it was revealed that Bo Dallas had gotten married. Now, the identity of the bride has been discovered. It's Sarah Backman, a former WWE developmental diva. She's more known to the world as one of the top female arm wrestlers of all time. Sarah requested her release from the company a couple of months back after having quite the lackluster tenure in the developmental program.
June 28, 2014
Evan Bourne
When he received his release from WWE, Evan Bourne immediately contacted ROH and told them that he was available for work. ROH, however, took the smart approach and contacted WWE to get things in writing. During the conversation, WWE informed ROH that Bourne has not been cleared to work for their company. Bourne was flown out to the show, but had to remain backstage.
June 27, 2014
Josh Mathews
Yesterday, Josh Mathews received his release from WWE, losing his dream job because the company needed to save money. The announcer decided that he was not going to just sit around and mope. Instead, Mathews is backstage at the Impact Wrestling taping, which is taking place in New York City. The belief is that he is gauging to see if there is any interest from TNA in signing him to a contract.
June 26, 2014
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
Josh Mathews
It looks like WWE is not done handing out pink slips to their employees. Josh Mathews becomes the latest person to receive a release from the company. He was a bit of a utility person backstage, but most will remember him as an interviewer. Locker room morale might take a bit of a hit since Mathews was well liked and his enthusiasm for the WWE product was a bit infectious.
June 25, 2014
Drew McIntyre
Since WWE owns the name, Jinder Mahal is going by a different moniker now that he has been given a release and is looking for work on the independent wrestling circuit. He will now be known as Raj Singh. While he is taking bookings through an agent, it's interesting to note that he has not teamed up with Drew McIntyre in an attempt to be signed as a package.
June 24, 2014
JTG
When WWE announced that they were releasing several performers from their main roster earlier this month, it caught a few of them by surprise. JTG, however, was well prepared for his release. He had been expecting it for quite some time now. There was an incident a while back where he received major backstage heat from management for speaking out about payment. Since then, his days with WWE were numbered. JTG recently revealed to TMZ that he had started planning around the release way before it took place.
June 23, 2014
Great Muta
While WWE did not feel that he was good enough for the main roster, Yoshi Tatsu still has a couple of suitors left in the industry. Shortly after his contract release, the Japanese star was contacted by All Japan Pro Wrestling and Wrestle-1, which is owned by the Great Muta, about returning to his home country. Rumors are floating around that Tatsu would prefer to stay in the United States, so he may explore his options here first before making a decision to return home.
June 23, 2014
Bobby Lashley
A big reason why Bobby Lashley was given the TNA World Heavyweight Championship this week is because he is viewed as a marketing asset. The company immediately sent out a press release to inform them that Lashley had become the new champion. TNA is touting his accomplishments as a collegiate athlete, military personnel, mixed martial arts and professional wrestling to the media.
June 20, 2014
Drew McIntyre
As many of you already know by now, Drew McIntyre, who was once viewed as a future world champion in WWE by both Vince McMahon and the fans, received his release from the company earlier this month. The talented and underrated performer will now be forced to use a different name if he wishes to continue in the professional wrestling industry because WWE owns the trademark. The belief is that he will wrestle under his real name for the time being.
June 20, 2014
Jim Ross
While doing a podcast interview with Jim Ross, Kurt Angle discussed the topic of CM Punk and his departure from WWE earlier in the year. Angle stated that he was not aware of how injured Punk was until recently. Upon finding that out, Angle stated that he respected Punk's decision to leave, in order to preserve his health. Angle did also mention that Punk had issues with WWE over the booking and the direction of his character.
July 19, 2014
Kurt Angle
While doing a podcast interview with Jim Ross, Kurt Angle revealed some very interest details on his contract situation. The former world heavyweight champion noted that his deal with TNA expires on September 21. Dixie Carter wants him to stick around and has put a new contract on the table. Angle revealed that he has yet to sign it because he wants to keep his options open. His next contract will be his last in wrestling, so he wants to see if WWE would be willing to give him a final run.
July 9, 2014
Jim Ross
News broke earlier this week that Jim Ross was going to be doing some acting, and some further details have been revealed by the longtime WWE commentator. Ross stated that he was playing an evil boss. He also joked that some might feel that is art imitating life. This is in reference to Ross' time as vice president of talent relations in WWE. Some performers had issues with his style of management.
June 23, 2014
Jim Ross
When Jim Ross was fired from WWE, a lot of wrestling fans naturally wondered what the beloved commentator was going to do with his time. Aside from trying his hands as a boxing commentator and starting a successful podcast show, Ross has also decided to give Hollywood a try. The Oklahoma native has signed on for a movie role in an upcoming independent film called What Now.
June 19, 2014
Jim Ross
Since there has not been an official announcement made, a lot of wrestling fans are under the assumption that Spike TV will be dropping TNA and Impact Wrestling this year. However, during a recent interview, Jim Ross revealed that his industry sources have confirmed to him that a deal was imminent and the two sides will come to an agreement on a new television contract soon.
June 11, 2014
Steve Austin
Earlier in the week, it was revealed that Jim Ross had to spend a night in the hospital, as the former WWE commentator had a bit of a health scare and his wife wanted to be safer than sorry. Ross revealed that a couple of people contacted him at the hospital to check up on him. Jerry Lawler and Steve Austin were two of them. The other was Vince McMahon, which was a little bit surprising as there have been rumors floating around for the last year that there is some backstage heat between the two.
June 10, 2014
Jim Ross
While it sounds like just a precautionary thing, Jim Ross spent the night in the hospital recently. He complained to his wife that he was not feeling well, so she made the former WWE commentator visit with doctors. Ross stated that his unnamed symptoms took place shortly after he returned from a trip to Las Vegas.
June 7, 2014
Vince McMahon
While doing his show in Chicago this weekend, Jim Ross revealed that there is some backstage heat between he and Jesse Ventura. It stems from when they were working together in the XFL, the football league that Vince McMahon and WWE launched. According to Ross, Ventura wanted to be addressed only as "Governor Ventura". Ross told Ventura to kiss his ass instead.
June 1, 2014
Jim Ross
On Saturday night, Jim Ross is doing his one man show at the House of Blues in Chicago. The longtime WWE commentator is hoping that a very famous resident of the city will make a surprise appearance at his event. Ross publicly stated that he does not know if CM Punk will be there, but he hopes that the former WWE champion checks out his act.
May 30, 2014
Jim Ross
Add Jim Ross to the long list of people who believe that Dolph Ziggler is the most underutilized performer in WWE. The longtime commentator did a questions and answers bit with his readers, and the topic of Ziggler was brought up. Ross flat out stated that he has not been used properly by WWE over the last couple of years, a sentiment shared by the majority of wrestling fans.

Jim Ross
"Seems like many members of the IWC have become stock analysts. Where were you when I was evaluating my portfolio? I am NOT a stock analyst but I do honestly feel that WWE stock will eventually, and that's sooner than later, be a solid, long term investment for those who partake in the market." - Jim Ross bashes wrestling fans who try to talk about stocks without being fully informed
May 23, 2014
Bobby Roode
During a recent blog post, Jim Ross was asked what WWE needed to do in order to fix their product. The legendary commentator said that they simply needed to put on a better show and utilize their talents better. He praised Dolph Ziggler as a performer who needed to be push. Then, without solicitation, he praised James Storm and Bobby Roode of TNA.
May 19, 2014
Shawn Michaels
During a recent podcast interview with Jim Ross, WWE legend Shawn Michaels revealed that he had no intentions of coming out of retirement to work a match against Daniel Bryan, who was his real life protege at one point in time. Michaels stated that he has had discussions with certain people backstage in WWE about the possibility, but nothing concrete ever came out of those discussions.
May 14, 2014
Jim Ross
Those of you that are hoping for the legendary WWE commentator to join the cast of Legends House next season are in for quite a disappointment, as Jim Ross has publicly stated that he would not do that show. He cites that he does not have six weeks of free time required to devote to filming an entire season. Ross has a variety of business ventures to tend to at the moment.
May 12, 2014
Jim Ross
Prior to adopting the over the top style that made him a legend in the eyes of WWE fans, Jim Ross utilized a realistic sports style of commentating. He will be returning to that style on his latest venture for FOX Sports 1. During Memorial Day weekend, Ross will be trying his hand at being a boxing commentator at an event in El Paso, Texas.

Jim Ross
"I was having a long day in my makeshift office at an arena when I was in charge of the talent roster in WWE. I had an extended conversation with someone that was having substance abuse issues. That was our suspicion. Owen saw that my door had been closed for several hours. I catch him coming down the hall, stumbling and bouncing off the walls. I get up close to him, and he's got this white substance under his nose like he had been doing cocaine. Obviously, Owen was not a drug user at all. Long story short, he'd gone to the dessert table at catering and got a powdered donut, trying to cheer me up and say, 'You had a rough day. A lot of us are appreciative of what you're trying to do to help guys.'" - Jim Ross reveals his favorite backstage prank from Owen Hart

Jim Ross
"It's hard if you're quantifying raw numbers to say anyone was more popular at their zenith than Stone Cold Steve Austin. No one sold more merchandise, tickets or pay per view than Steve. The thing with Junkyard Dog was that he was the first African American number one baby face in a major territory. For black fans especially, he was such a groundbreaking force. There was a unique emotional relationship that JYD had with his audience. He gave a whole race their guy." - Jim Ross describes Junkyard Dog and his place in wrestling history

Jim Ross
Earlier tonight, Jim Ross posted on Twitter about the death of Lee Marshall, his former colleague in WCW. While his work in professional wrestling will forever be remembered by many, it is his work as the voice of Tony the Tiger, the iconic cereal character, that the world knows him for.
