Miz
There were a lot of rumors over the weekend that Miz was going to be making his return to WWE on this week's episode of Monday Night Raw. However, that never happened.

Davey Richards
As of right now, TNA has not announced the opponents for Ross Von Erich and Marshall Von Erich, the sons of Texas legend Kevin Von Erich, at Slammiversary 2014. Some rumors are floating around that they might be paired up with excellent ring workers in Davey Richards and Eddie Edwards, but others believe that they will be working against a heel tandem in order to generate a good reaction in front of their hometown fans in Dallas.
June 7, 2014
Damien Sandow
Since Monday Night Raw is in Indiana, WWE decided to have Damien Sandow doing a segment to taunt the fans by having him mock Lance Stephenson, who happens to play for the hometown Pacers. For those that do not follow the NBA, Stephenson recently generated a lot of headlines because he attempted to trash talk LeBron James during the playoffs and failed miserably.
June 2, 2014
CM Punk
Since the pay per view was in Chicago, many within WWE expected the fans to chant for CM Punk last night. They did just that throughout Payback 2014. However, some within the company were surprised to see a passionate please from the audience for WWE to utilize Dolph Ziggler. They chanted for him almost as much as they did for Punk, the hometown hero.
June 2, 2014
CM Punk
Rumors going around right now is that CM Punk will be making an appearance at Payback 2014 tonight because the event is taking place in his hometown of Chicago. However, the former WWE champion revealed that he will be approximately 20 miles down the road from the pay per view. Punk will be attending an NHL game instead of making his return to wrestling.
June 1, 2014
Batista
Since the final episode of Monday Night Raw before Wrestlemania 30 is in his hometown of Washington DC, Batista has been booked in a non title match against Randy Orton that evening. The belief is that WWE will make Batista look strong that night, so that fans will believe that Orton has a chance at losing the belt at the pay per view.
March 25, 2014
Dolph Ziggler
In a rather interesting bit of news, WWE did a live event in Long Island this weekend, and they purposely opted not to use Zack Ryder, the hometown hero. In what could be a show of defiance towards management, Dolph Ziggler did an in ring tribute to Zack Ryder during his match by doing a couple of his Ryder's signature moves.
March 24, 2014
CM Punk
A widespread belief in the industry is that if CM Punk were to return to WWE, it would have taken place at Monday Night Raw this week since it took place in his hometown of Chicago. The timing would have been great, and it would have enabled the creative department enough time to set him up for a big spot at Wrestlemania 30.
March 4, 2014
CM Punk
Rumors are heating up that CM Punk will be returning to WWE this week on Monday Night Raw, which is taking place in his hometown of Chicago. Nothing has been confirmed, however, and the belief is that a lot of this speculation is being fueled by wishful thinking. Vince McMahon has been trying to get through to Punk to get him back in time for Wrestlemania 30, though.
March 2, 2014
Diego
Since the company was doing shows simultaneously at both ends of the state, WWE decided to book Rey Mysterio up north instead of doing the show in his hometown. That turned out to be quite the costly mistake for management, as the show in San Diego drew very poorly at the gates without the popular masked star.
February 21, 2014
Cameron
While WWE has often times chosen to humiliate performers when they're working in front of their hometown crowds, management opted to give Cameron a win on Monday Night Raw in Los Angeles. She posted this special message on Twitter to commemorate the night.
February 13, 2014
Alberto Del Rio
Since it is heavily integrated into his character, most fans associate Rey Mysterio with his hometown of San Diego. In a rather interesting move, WWE opted not to utilize him as the live event in that city over the weekend. Instead, he was sent up north to San Jose to work a six man tag team match featuring Mark Henry, Xavier Woods, Alberto Del Rio, Jack Swagger and Antonio Cesaro.
February 9, 2014
CM Punk
In a sign that the backstage heat is still there, WWE has removed CM Punk from advertisement for the upcoming episode of Monday Night Raw that is set to take place in his hometown of Chicago in March. Management was hoping that he would return by that point, in order to avoid being in a hostile environment filled with angry fans.

Rockstar Spud

"I really am living the dream and returning to the UK, whatever the reaction, really tops its off. It has been a whirlwind year or so really but I can’t think of a better way to top it off than with this tour and getting to wrestle for TNA in front of my hometown crowd. It might be a cliché but it really is a dream come true, I have wanted to be a wrestler for so long and now being able to do it, is just amazing.”

Abdullah the Butcher

While his character is said to be from the Sudan, the guy that portrayed Abdullah the Butcher was actually from Windsor, Ontario, Canada.

January 10, 2014
John Cena
WWE ran a live event on Friday in Dallas, and they initially drew in fans by advertising that John Cena would be working the show. However, the heavyweight champion picked up a part in a movie and was forced to miss the event, which prompted management to offer full refund to fans in attendance. It is being said that only a small amount of people bothered to leave the building.
July 28, 2014
Jack Swagger
Alexander Rusev is posing a considerable problem for the WWE creative department nowadays. The staff was instructed to push him up the ladder, but they are now running out of options. His program with Jack Swagger has either ended or will end soon. Rusev cannot be placed into a program with someone lower on the card, and it's too soon for him to work against John Cena. Sheamus has been named as a possible opponent to help Rusev kill time.
July 27, 2014
John Cena
A lot of people backstage in WWE have been joking around lately about John Cena possibly being the next guy to leave the company to pursue a career in Hollywood. He's got a couple of parts coming up that might help him gain the attention of the studios. There are also talks that Cena is a lot more injured than he lets on, so an acting career might seem like a better option nowadays.
July 23, 2014
Brock Lesnar
For those of you that missed Monday Night Raw this week, Brock Lesnar made his much anticipated return to WWE and challenged John Cena at Summerslam 2014 for the world heavyweight championship. The story is that Paul Heyman convinced Triple H to go with Plan C because it was the best chance at getting the strap away from Cena.
July 22, 2014
John Cena
After successfully retaining the heavyweight championship at WWE Battleground 2014, many would expect John Cena to be at Monday Night Raw for some sort of victory promo. However, the popular performer hopped on a plane Monday morning in Tampa to head to New York City. Cena is filming some scenes for an upcoming movie and will not be at Raw.
July 21, 2014
Roman Reigns
With the pay per view just a day away, rumors are firing up about WWE pulling the trigger on the Roman Reigns era. There are talks that he could walk out of the WWE Battleground 2014 pay per view as the new heavyweight champion. Management might be forced to give John Cena some time off to film some scenes in a big movie, so the title change has been discussed heavily over the last couple of days.
July 19, 2014
Chris Jericho
While wrestling fans online are downplaying the incident, WWE is a bit concerned that fans in attendance at the last episode of Monday Night Raw were bored with Bray Wyatt during his segment with Chris Jericho. The chants came as a bit of a surprise to management, as they felt that Wyatt was one of their more popular performers. There were concerns that he would lose interests from some fans once his program with John Cena ended.
July 17, 2014
John Cena
Rumors are floating around that the segment on Monday Night Raw between John Cena and Ric Flair was a subtle way for WWE to retire the world heavyweight championship belt. For those that missed it, Cena handed the belt over to Flair and told the legendary performer to keep it. WWE has not released an official statement on the matter yet, so fans will be tuning in to Smackdown and WWE Battleground 2014 to see the fate of the belt.
July 15, 2014
Daniel Bryan
While many are under the impression that he is temporarily holding the WWE Championship until Daniel Bryan can return from a serious neck injury, word coming out of backstage is that John Cena is expected to have a lengthy title reign. Management wants people to believe that his 15th title reign is very important, so they might keep the belt on him a long time to emphasize that.
July 12, 2014
John Cena
While he was widely viewed as one of the favorites to win the title at Money in the Bank 2014, Bray Wyatt was actually never in consideration as a champion by WWE. The company was dead set on putting the belt back around John Cena, as they felt that they needed their top star to be the face of the company while they're trying to win back the trust of the investors. Putting the belt on Wyatt might not evoke the same level of trust from people who might not necessarily follow the product as much as fans.
July 3, 2014
Nikki Bella
A lot of fans were hoping to see John Cena next month at the Comic Con event in San Antonio. They're going to be a little bit disappointed because WWE has been forced to pull the heavyweight champion from the event. The belief is that he needs the time to film a new movie. To make things up to the fans, WWE is sending Bray Wyatt, Brie Bella and Nikki Bella.
July 3, 2014
Randy Orton
While the general consensus in professional wrestling is that the world heavyweight champion plays a bit part in the overall success of the company, a recent article from Forbes attempts to dispute that by looking at the financial ramifications during the title reigns of CM Punk, John Cena and Randy Orton. Since the numbers are all over the place, the author concluded that the heavyweight champion does not have much of an effect on the business end of WWE.
July 2, 2014
John Cena
Last night on Monday Night Raw, it was revealed that John Cena would be on the cover of the upcoming WWE 2K15 video game. The move does not come as a surprise to insiders because the company really needs this product to generate a good amount of money. From a marketing perspective, you want to put your biggest asset on the cover to potentially increase the numbers.
July 1, 2014
Seth Rollins
On Monday Night Raw, WWE was quick to set up the main event for WWE Battleground 2014. John Cena will defend the heavyweight championship in a fatal four way match against Roman Reigns, Randy Orton and Kane. The move was set up by Triple H, who did not reveal his reasoning for putting Reigns, an adversary, into the title match instead of Seth Rollins.
July 1, 2014
John Cena
A lot of action took place in the main event of Money in the Bank 2014. Fans went crazy as they saw creative signature spots from Randy Orton, Sheamus, John Cena, Roman Reigns, Alberto Del Rio, Kane and Bray Wyatt. However, it was Cena, much to the dismay of online WWE fans, who climbed the ladder and captured the heavyweight championship.
June 29, 2014
R Truth
During a recent interview, R Truth revealed that his rap album will be released soon, as they are in the final stages of production now. The former world heavyweight champion also revealed that John Cena had provided some help with a couple of the songs. The news comes with a bit of skepticism since the WWE star has reportedly been working on the album for the last several years.
June 27, 2014
Big E Langston
Over the last several months, the Usos have been given more of the spotlight. While some of that is due to the Total Divas connection, the main source of their push is due to Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso being backed by John Cena. The trio has grown close backstage. Cena doesn't often use his stroke with management, but he has encouraged management to push guys like Antonio Cesaro and Big E Langston before.
June 27, 2014
Brock Lesnar
The rumors of John Cena winning the WWE title at Money in the Bank 2014 just got hotter now that the company has accidentally revealed a poster for Summerslam 2014, which features what looks like a main event match between Cena and Brock Lesnar. There has been speculations over the last couple of months that when the former UFC champion makes his return to WWE, he would be thrown into a title program.
June 25, 2014
Brock Lesnar
Some bad news for those of you that hate John Cena. Rumors are pointing to him being at the head of the line as the next WWE champion. Cena is expected to win the title at Money in the Bank 2014. The belief is that the company wants to put the title back around the waist of their most proven draw. If Cena wins the belt again, potential feuds include Bray Wyatt, Brock Lesnar and Daniel Bryan.
June 22, 2014
Bray Wyatt
Since his feud with John Cena cannot go on forever, fans have naturally wondered who WWE was going to have Bray Wyatt feuding against next. There hasn't been any clear indications on Monday Night Raw or Smackdown as to who he will transition into a program with, but rumors are floating around right now that it could be Sheamus. The two of them are scheduled to work against one another on an upcoming tour of Australia, so that could be what WWE has in mind.
