AJ Styles
While the negotiation continues between the two sides, the belief is that Bully Ray and TNA are far apart on the financial terms. Management wants to keep their former world heavyweight champion around because he is quite the asset to the roster. However, they are limited in what they can pay him, much like how they had to let AJ Styles leave. Since neither side is willing to budge, it looks like the relationship could be over soon.
August 21, 2014
Rey Mysterio
There were some talks backstage in WWE of bringing in Rey Mysterio to help do promotions for Summerslam 2014. He lives three hours away in San Diego and is especially popular in southern California. However, that never happened. The shows how bad the relationship is between the two sides, as Mysterio reportedly wants to be free of his contract with the company.
August 21, 2014
Hulk Hogan
The relationship between Hulk Hogan and WWE has been further extended, as the former world heavyweight champion is now going to be involved in a movie for the company. WWE Studios is producing Celebrity Death Pool, featuring Ken Jeong from the Hangover series and David Hasselhoff. Hogan has a small role in the movie, but the company is expected to promote him heavily to draw in their fan base.
August 21, 2014
Alberto Del Rio
Rumors are spreading that Alberto Del Rio could possibly become one of the bigger names to sign with Jeff Jarrett and Global Force Wrestling. The speculation is due to the fact that the two of them will both be at TripleMania this weekend. Jarrett has a business relationship with AAA and will be wrestling at the pay per view, while Del Rio, fresh off of a controversial release from WWE, will be making an appearance.
August 12, 2014
Scott Steiner
While making an appearance at the Comic Con event in southern California, Scott Steiner was asked about his relationship with WWE. He stated that the company has tried to get him to sign a Legends contract in the past. However, Steiner revealed that he did not sign the deal because his lawyers advised him against doing such a thing because WWE would basically own his name.
August 9, 2014
Cameron
It looks like WWE will be utilizing the relationship between Cameron and her boyfriend a bit more during the next season of Total Divas. The belief is that something drastic will happen, where the couple will either break up or do a wedding. The heel turn and split from Naomi Knight was designed to put more attention into her character on the reality television show next season.
July 28, 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
Natalya Neidhart
In a rather interesting and bizarre bit of news, Natalya Neidhart is being sued by a prisoner in the state of Pennsylvania. Christopher Donnelly is alleging that the WWE diva mentally, physically and emotionally abused him from 2005 until 2009. He also claims that Natalya had an abortion during their sexual relationship. Donnelly is attempting to gain $250,000 from the lawsuit.
July 9, 2014
Dolph Ziggler
While a lot of fans are hoping to see WWE giving Dolph Ziggler a push again, the on screen relationship between he and Summer Rae is more about the diva than the former world heavyweight champion. Management needed someone to pair her up with, so that she can continue her feud against Fandango and Layla El. WWE still wants to give her a nice push heading into the next season of Total Divas.
July 6, 2014
Dixie Carter
When Seiya Sanada first joined TNA, the belief was that he was only temporarily here in the United States to boost his credibility with fans in Japan. However, since the relationship has worked out well for all sides, there are talks now of Sanada sticking around for a bit. A joint contract between the former X division champion, Great Muta and Dixie Carter is being discussed that will keep Sanada in the US a bit longer.
July 4, 2014
Dolph Ziggler
After their segment on Monday Night Raw this week, there is a lot of speculation going around about Dolph Ziggler and Summer Rae. There has been no confirmation that they are dating in real life. The belief is that this is a move by WWE to make both of them slightly more relevant and to have a foil for Fandango and Layla El. This on screen relationship between Ziggler and Summer could be a short term thing.

June 18, 2014
Bully Ray
Rumors are heavily floating around right now that TNA and House of Hardcore are working together. When Tommy Dreamer cut what seemed to be a shoot interview about Dixie Carter pulling Bully Ray from his show, some felt that it was out of character for Dreamer to do that, as he is viewed as one of the more respectful guys in the industry. Plus, Dreamer himself has a working relationship with TNA already, so it would not be hard to fathom that he would align his company with Carter.
June 8, 2014
Bully Ray
Earlier this week, it was discovered that Bully Ray had been pulled from the House of Hardcore event that Tommy Dreamer was promoting. It has now been revealed that TNA pulled Bully Ray, so that he can go represent the company at a Spike TV television event. Since contract negotiations on a new television deal are ongoing, TNA wanted to maintain a good working relationship with Spike TV, and Bully Ray is one of their best representatives.
June 8, 2014
Bully Ray
An interesting situation took place at the House of Hardcore show in New York tonight. Tommy Dreamer bashed Dixie Carter for pulling Bully Ray from his show at the last minute. He stated that the TNA president pulled Bully to appear on a promotional event for Impact Wrestling. Dreamer has a working relationship with Carter, so there are rumors that this was simply a story line to generate interest in both promotions.
June 6, 2014
Roddy Piper
The rocky relationship between Roddy Piper and Vince McMahon is apparently back on bad terms again. WWE officials are said to be quite upset with the former United States Heavyweight Champion for comments that he made about Legends House during promotional events. Piper, who is no stranger to backstage heat over the years, also made some derogatory comments towards Pat Patterson during a shoot interview recently.
May 30, 2014
Ashley Flair
In a sign that she should be called up to the main roster in the near future, Ashley Flair has been given the WWE NXT Women's Championship. She defeated Natalya Neidhart to capture the belt. Management has long praised her athletic ability, and with her father, Ric Flair, coming back to Monday Night Raw soon, WWE could be looking to capitalize on that relationship.

Brutus Magnus
"Why do internet fans and gossip writers always have to find an ulterior motive for decisions? It baffles and frankly irritates the hell out of me that these people always have to assume the worst, and report it as fact. More needs to be done in both companies to combat internal sources talking to these parasites. I was asked by a promoter recently if I lost the title because there was heat between me and John Gaburick, our Executive VP of Talent and Creative. Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, 'Big' and I are able to freely express ourselves to one another, which means we get to speaks our minds properly, and we've had that relationship since he first arrived in TNA. "Furthermore, how ridiculous is that notion? Do you think if there was heat, that he would have put the title on me in the first place. On average, numbers went across the board while I had the strap. The job of the heel champion is to get the babyfaces over, and leave the place in a better state than he found it. Mission accomplished. "I can't wait to sink my teeth into my next chapter." - Brutus Magnus addressing rumors that he has backstage heat in TNA
May 28, 2014
Alex Wright
A couple of weeks ago, Alex Wright was brought to the United States by WWE to work as a guest trainer at the WWE Performance Center. While the company was doing a tour of Europe, William Regal was sent to the wrestling school that Wright owns to check things out. Rumors have it that WWE wants to maintain an ongoing working relationship with Wright, in an attempt to find new talent from Europe.

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
May 9, 2014

Karl Anderson
"I love this business! You got to be willing to make a 16 hour drive one way to South Dakota to work in front of eight Indians for $50. Of course, I wouldn't do that now, not even for $1000, but that's the proper way to come up in wrestling. Got to love this shit, man." - Karl Anderson explaining the wrestling business
March 6, 2014
Tensai
Through Twitter, Karl Anderson revealed that Tensai was making $349,000 a year in WWE. That amount is substantially higher than what the lower level and mid card guys in the company are making.
