While there were talks about building a stable around Dolph Ziggler and Miz, two performers who have not been pushed as much as they used to be lately, those discussions have grown a bit dormant as of late.

Colt Cabana
Got some bad news if you're a fan of the Colt Cabana podcast. The former WWE star revealed that his web server has been hacked by malicious bots. He is having trouble finding help to resolve the issue, which started a couple of days ago. Cabana recently landed a pretty big guest when legendary commentator Jim Ross agreed to do an interview for his show.
July 27, 2014
Batista
News coming out of Comic Con is that a sequel to Guardians of the Galaxy has already been set. For WWE fans, that means that Batista will need more time off to work on the film. No word yet on whether or not he plans to remain in the professional wrestling industry since his movie career is moving forward, however. Depending on the success of the first film, Batista could land other roles in Hollywood, which would entice him to leave WWE.
July 27, 2014
Tensai
With his in ring career fully behind him now, Tensai has been slowly gaining power backstage in WWE. He impressed management with his ability to function as a color commentator. Now, he has convinced them to let him have a bigger part in the company by training the developmental wrestlers. WWE likes the fact that Tensai has worked overseas and is familiar with a lot of different styles of wrestling.

Vince McMahon
Vince McMahon has another big headache to deal with, as his company is being hit with a class action lawsuit. The claim is that WWE purposely misled investors about their ability to secure a much better television deal with the network than the contract that they eventually signed. The promise of a bigger television deal was reportedly the reason why a lot of investors sank money into WWE, causing their stocks to soar to record levels.
July 26, 2014
Brie Bella
While he is already revered by WWE fans, Daniel Bryan has now become a real life hero. The former world heavyweight champion and Brie Bella were coming home when they noticed that their front door was open.

July 26, 2014
Ric Flair
In an attempt to get as much out of his name value as possible, WWE has been utilizing Ric Flair during live events as a special guest referee. The hope is that his appearance will help convince some fans to attend the show. As of right now, he has been booked on a couple of shows throughout the summer in this particular role. No word yet on what WWE plans on doing with him on television, though.
July 26, 2014
Dixie Carter
TNA might have finally found a formula that works with these latest episodes of Impact Wrestling. The shows taped in New York City have been drawing in a much better audience than normal. Dixie Carter and her crew are said to be quite pleased that they're coming close to reaching 1.5 million viewers a week now. Something like this may entice management to change up their booking style.
July 26, 2014
Rob Terry
Even though he is now back in TNA, Rob Terry still continues to work for other wrestling promotions. Thanks to the new taping schedule for Impact Wrestling, he is able to work shows in Europe in early August. At these live events, he will be working under his real name as opposed to being under a mask like he is in TNA.
July 25, 2014
Sting
For the longest time, it seemed like Sting would never ever work for Vince McMahon or wrestle for WWE, but things have taken quite the turn. The relationship between the two sides have grown rather quickly. It now appears inevitable that the legendary WCW star is going to work a big match for the company. Sting has repeatedly stated his desire to do a match at every public event that he has attended recently.
July 25, 2014
Christopher Daniels
Fans in attendance at the Comic Con event in San Diego this week have a chance to meet Christopher Daniels. The former TNA star has a booth there to promote his comic book.

The two of them had a nice talk and posed for a social media picture together.
July 25, 2014
Rock
Through his Twitter account, the Rock informed fans that his new Hercules movie is now the top film in Australia. Several analysts are predicting that the movie will be a big flop in the United States because the marketing campaigns have not really generated a huge buzz. There have also been a lot of bad reviews, which might prompt people to avoid the movie.
July 25, 2014
Chris Jericho
Chris Jericho and Fozzy performed a concert at the world famous Whisky A Go Go in Hollywood last night. He was not the only WWE performer in the building.

July 25, 2014
Brock Lesnar
During a recent podcast interview with Jim Ross, Kurt Angle confirmed the longstanding rumors that he and Brock Lesnar got into a backstage fight when both were with WWE. Angle stated that he initiated the brawl with Lesnar because Lesnar was telling the other wrestlers that Angle was too small for him to wrestle. The incident was more of an amateur wrestling match than a fist fight.
July 24, 2014
Sheamus
Those that watched Monday Night Raw this week may have noticed that Sheamus was not in attendance. The former WWE champion will also not be appearing on the next episode of Smackdown, either. That's because the Irish star has been taken off of the road due to a severe flu. The illness is probably quite bad since Sheamus has been known to work through injuries before.
July 24, 2014
Roddy Piper
While doing a one man show in Scotland recently, Roddy Piper said something especially interesting to the audience. He told them that there was a movie in the works that will document his life and career as a professional wrestler. The WWE legend also claims that Mark Wahlberg, who is now one of the biggest movie stars on the planet, has signed on to portray him in the film. There has been no confirmation thus far from other sources.
July 24, 2014
Jeff Jarrett
While we're still awaiting all the details, it appears that Jeff Jarrett really does have a global vision when it comes to Global Force Wrestling. He has already signed deals with the top wrestling promotions in Japan and Mexico. Now, he has signed partnerships with a couple of promotions in Europe. Five companies in England, Germany and Ireland have joined forces with Jarrett.
July 24, 2014
Trish Stratus
Since she has a little bit of free time now, Trish Stratus is dabbling into Hollywood again. The former WWE diva has been cast in an upcoming movie called Gridlocked, where she will be portraying a lead member of the SWAT team. The star of the movie is Danny Glover. The film is being shot in Toronto and London, so Trish will not have to be away from home too much.
July 23, 2014
Jim Ross
Even though he has not been with the company for quite a few months now, Jim Ross was actually under contract to WWE. Until today, that is. The legendary commentator revealed to fans through social media that his contract officially came to an end this week. While Ross has stated before that he would love to be the lead commentator for Monday Night Raw again, it does not appear that Vince McMahon is interested in that.
July 23, 2014
Brooke Tessmacher
In a sign that the financial situation in TNA is not as bad as many make it out to be, the company has signed new deals with three of their performers. Sam Shaw and Brooke Tessmacher are signed to new multiple year contracts, while international star Seiya Sanada has agreed to a one year deal. There were a lot of concerns about the company when they released several performers, so much of that should be alleviated now that they are signing new deals with their workers.
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.
