Brodus Clay
"He is a pro. He comes to work everyday. He is straight forward and tells you exactly what it is. One of my things was I didn't get to work a match with him. I would have dropped the weight I did and keep the muscle I have. He is a great leader in terms of he talks it; he walks it. He is the face of the WWE and likely so. John Cena gave us all an opportunity to train and have the same training regiment. The training of the NBA and NFL with Olympic lifts for maintenance, for power, better cardiovascular. He was on the forefront. He gave guys an opportunity." - Brodus Clay defending John Cena

Bruiser Brody
Prior to becoming known worldwide as a legend in professional wrestling, Bruiser Brody was actually a pretty good football player. He was an all state high school player in Michigan. His talents were so good that he caught the attention of a university in Texas. He parlayed his success in college to an NFL career, doing a brief stint with the Washington Redskins.

Diamond Dallas Page
"First of all, I wanted to leave. Oh my god, this woman was so nice to me when I walked in there. Once she started hitting me with that deal, I got scared. I go 'Oh my god, she set me up, so should I get up and walk away? How is that going to make the business look?' I breathed, I focused on breathing. The only thing I could think of at that time was that WWE has the best wellness program, better than the NBA, NFL, MLB, so I think that is fighting for the company. I thought about firing back at her (Nancy Grace), but it was a really weird situation. I can't put that bitch over. I can't talk about her anymore, I want to strangle her. The last thing I want to be is in that position. The way it was told to me is that I saw four questions. I said 'I don't know about this' and Nancy Grace said 'No, it's gonna be a feel good piece.' When I walked in there, she was so sweet to me. She totally set me up." - Diamond Dallas Page talks about Nancy Grace

Mojo Rawley
WWE loved touting that there were some very familiar faces in the audience at the big WWE NXT show this past week. One of those was Rob Gronkowski, the superstar tight end for the New England Patriots. The NFL player was there because of his friendship with Mojo Rawley, the developmental wrestler that used to play football.
March 2, 2014
Austin Aries
Richie Incognito made the headlines for all of the wrong reason this past year, as the NFL star was suspended for bullying his teammate. Austin Aries posted this message on Twitter, giving advice to the Miami Dolphins offensive lineman.

Daniel Bryan
As he is slowly starting to become known in the mainstream media, Daniel Bryan was invited to NFL Total Access on the NFL Network this week. While there, he was judging the beards of various football players. The former world heavyweight champion came off looking very well for WWE, so more appearances could be in line.
February 12, 2014
Mojo Rawley
One of the reasons why WWE is putting a lot of faith and expectation in Mojo Rawley is because he is a former NFL player. He had brief stints with the Green Bay Packers and Arizona Cardinals, but a severe injury derailed him. Management feels that his professional sports background gives him a little more credibility than the other developmental wrestlers.
February 7, 2014
Daniel Bryan
Daniel Bryan is a huge fan of the Seattle Seahawks, so when his favorite NFL team won the Super Bowl in dominating fashion against Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos, he wanted to be there to celebrate, so the popular WWE star was one of the half million people in attendance at the championship parade.
February 6, 2014
Stacy Keibler
Like a lot of other celebrities, Stacy Keibler attended the Super Bowl game this year between the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks. The former NFL cheerleader was there to support Shaun Phillips, a defensive end who plays for the Broncos.

Kendall Skye is a huge fan of the Denver Broncos, and the WWE developmental wrestler even took the journey to New Jersey to watch her favorite NFL team play in the Super Bowl. Unfortunately, they were soundly dominated and defeated by the Seattle Seahawks, though.

Ahmed Johnson

Prior to becoming a star in professional wrestling, Ahmed Johnson, whose real name is Anthony Norris, played middle linebacker for the Dallas Cowboys for two seasons (1990 and 1991). He wasn't a big star, nor did he receive a lot of playing time, so he's not remembered by too many NFL fans.

February 4, 2014
Lex Luger

After playing football collegiately for the University of Miami and professionally for the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League, Lex Luger made his way to the NFL when he signed with the Green Bay Packers. Unfortunately, though, he never played a single regular season game for the team.

Roman Reigns

"I heard him say a good line, he didn't make a play he made 'the play', which in his own right, that's awesome, I enjoyed that. But his whole remarks about Michael Crabtree being mediocre, he kinda just buried himself to me. You're the best cornerback in the game and they're putting you on a mediocre receiver? You only made one play on a mediocre receiver? Which I think he, if he understood the psychology of smack talk, he would build up that receiver and then put himself over even more. You know, 'I'm going against this all-pro bad ass wide receiver, but guess what, I'm the best corner back in the game. I'll lock down anybody."

- Roman Reigns on NFL star Richard Sherman

Jim Ross

"I don't think you have to be a Mensa member to figure out that it had an influence on decisions that were made. I was working with the developmental kids in NXT and enjoying that, and got called in for that job. It was a very unique night, to say the least. Ric Flair was coming off maybe the most traumatic time of his life. Reid Flair had recently died of a drug overdose. In hindsight, it might not have been the most timely booking, to get him in that environment. And then you can look at the other side and say maybe it's a good thing to get him out around friends. As it worked out, you'd probably lean more to the former than the latter. But here's the deal. I was conductor of a runaway train. I was supposed to keep it on the tracks and that didn't happen. So I don't have any issues taking responsibility. Did I envision that it would help facilitate my exit? No. But I could see the thinking behind it."

- Jim Ross

Steve Austin

DeSean Jackson was recently robbed of $250,000 in cash and jewelry, so Steve Austin has offered him a helping hand. The former WWE star told the Philadelphia Eagles star to send him his personal information, and he will hook him up with a Fort Knox safe.

John Morrison
If you're a fan of John Morrison, now is a good time to head on over to the Amazon website because Hercules Reborn, which the former WWE performer stars in, is being released and shipped today. Interestingly enough, the website credits Morrison as the director as well as the star. However, that might simply be a typo because Nick Lyon sat in the director's chair for the film.
July 8, 2014
John Morrison
There are a lot of rumors going around right now about John Morrison making his return to WWE in the near future. The speculations stem from an article that was on the official WWE website that listed performers who could replace Seth Rollins in the Shield. Out of all the names given, Morrison was the only one that was not currently under contract to the company, so people began whispering.

Chris Masters
While a lot of people were under the assumption that his career as a professional wrestler was over after he suffered a serious neck injury, Jesse Sorensen has shown that there is life after TNA. He has been wrestling on a pretty frequent basis on the independent wrestling circuit. Sorensen is even booked for a big show next month that also features Matt Hardy, Chris Masters, Carlito and John Morrison.
April 21, 2014
Rampage Jackson
Throughout the past several months, Chavo Guerrero has been taking in quite a few business meetings, in order to set up his career outside of professional wrestling. It looks like one of those ventures has come to fruition, as Guerrero is now doing a talk show for GeekNation.com, called Where Men Come To Be Men. Rampage Jackson and John Morrison recently filmed an episode with him.

March 23, 2014
John Morrison
Even though he remains quite focused on his movie career, John Morrison has been gaining a reputation on the independent wrestling circuit as quite the asset. He handles himself professionally and is a pretty good draw at these shows. That is how the former WWE star has been able to consistently get booked across the country.
March 9, 2014
Jeff Jarrett
With so many wrestlers being rumored to be joining Jeff Jarrett in his new wrestling promotion, John Morrison has become the latest speculation, as many feel that he has enough name value to be utilized immediately as a main event performer for Jarrett. His main focus is still movies, but Morrison has kept himself involved in wrestling since leaving WWE.
March 2, 2014
Maryse Ouellet
As expected, several current and former WWE stars were in attendance at the wedding of Miz and Maryse Ouellet this week.

A lot of the female performers were forced to miss the event since they were in Mexico, filming Total Divas.

December 4, 2013
Miz

"If Miz and Morrison never happened, I truly believe that I would have been fired within a year. I think being with Morrison really gave me the opportunity to take risks. It gave me the opportunity to really stand tall in our realm. When we created a thing called The Dirt Sheet, which… Back then, YouTube was just getting going with its popularity. WWE now has its own YouTube channel. It didn't have its own YouTube Channel. It didn't have those internet shows. We were the first. So we kind of became originals and we were doing those sorts of things that were going against the grain because we wanted to get noticed. I think Morrison pushed me and I pushed Morrison to really do the best that we possibly can. We brought the best out of each other, is what I thought."
