Karl Anderson
While a lot of fans were hoping that he would sign with a promotion in the United States so that they can watch him on television again, it appears that AJ Styles will be signing overseas instead. Word has it that he is close to finalizing a contract with New Japan and should be heading to that country to work a few tours. He may be paired up with Karl Anderson, Luke Gallows and Prince Devitt.

Zema Ion
While many fans are expecting TNA to cease operations in the near future, the company is going against the grain by signing several wrestlers to contract extensions. Today, the company announced that Zema Ion has been signed to a new multiple year deal. The belief is that the company is also hoping to lock down more performers before the year ends.
July 31, 2014
Josh Mathews
Josh Mathews might not be out of a job for too long. Rumors are floating around that TNA is very close to signing him to a contract. When he was backstage at Impact Wrestling, he did not seem like a typical visitor, as management was introducing him to people backstage. The belief is that he would be a valuable asset since he understands a lot about the production in WWE.
July 25, 2014
Prince Devitt
Over the last couple of months, there have been plenty of rumors in regards to WWE signing international star Prince Devitt to a contract. Things heated up even more when he left New Japan. Things died down a bit when no announcement was made, but it looks like the rumor mills are heating up again. Reports are surfacing that the deal has now been reached, and he should be showing up to developmental soon.
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
Kevin Steen
While he has already said his farewell to Ring of Honor fans, Kevin Steen is reportedly not under contract to WWE just yet. Word has it that he has yet to complete the medical testing that the company requires all new performers to undergo before signing a deal. If there are any lingering injuries, then there is a chance that Steen might not be picked up by the WWE developmental program.
July 16, 2014
Matt Hardy
Rumors are floating around that Matt Hardy is leaving ROH very soon. His contract is set to expire, and the belief is that neither side is interested in signing an extension. Ring of Honor officials are said to be upset with Hardy for working a couple of episodes of Impact Wrestling for TNA recently. There are also rumors that Hardy is headed back to TNA on a more permanent basis.
July 12, 2014
Triple H
With his career in MMA coming to a close soon, Rashad Evans wants to make the jump from UFC to WWE. Rumors are floating around right now that he has already contacted WWE to gauge their interest in signing him. Vince McMahon is not a huge fan of MMA, but he does know that UFC fighters have name value. Triple H is reportedly said to be interested in bringing Evans on board.
July 10, 2014
LeiD Tapa
When LeiD Tapa was released by TNA back in March, there were rumors that she might be a candidate to join the WWE developmental program. However, the company has shown very little interest thus far. In fact, she has not even been invited for a tryout yet. While some are citing her lack of experience, which she is trying to fix by working with OVW, many are pointing out that WWE has had no qualms with signing female performers who have absolutely no experience in the wrestling industry before.
July 8, 2014
Samoa Joe
Some rumors are floating around this weekend that WWE is trying to sign Samoa Joe. The source of the speculations is said to be due to the fact that Triple H briefly followed Joe on Twitter. Sources are saying that Joe followed HHH back on the social media site, which means that they had the option for two way communications for a period of time this weekend. WWE has long avoided the signing of Joe, so this would be quite an interesting move if true.
July 6, 2014
Adam Rose
Many were under the impression that WWE was not interested in signing Rosita, as nothing took place after she did tryouts with the company. However, there are rumors floating around that management might have had a change of heart. Many see her appearances as an entourage of Adam Rose recently as a sign that WWE will be offering her a developmental contract soon.
July 3, 2014
Bray Wyatt
Shortly after Chris Jericho made his surprising return on Monday Night Raw, the Wyatt Family provided a surprise of their own when Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan suddenly appeared in the ring to attack the former undisputed champion. When Wyatt was in NXT, Jericho specifically requested to WWE officials to let him work with Wyatt. The belief is that he did so again upon signing a contract to return.
July 1, 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
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
Dixie Carter
A bit of a buzz was created for Cryme Tyme over the weekend, thanks to an interview on TMZ, where Shad Gaspard and JTG informed the fans that they are now teaming up again on the independent wrestling circuit. Gaspard decided to fan the flames even further when he posted on Twitter that the duo should contact Dixie Carter about perhaps signing a contract with TNA.
June 23, 2014
Jeff Jarrett
When Global Force Wrestling finally gets started, the belief is that Jeff Jarrett will have a female division, as he saw firsthand the amount of success TNA had with the Knockouts. An interesting name is being rumored as a possible signing. Kharma could be utilized as one of the centerpieces of the division in GFW. She has some name value thanks to her stint in WWE and TNA.
June 20, 2014
Sting
Rumors are floating around right now that Sting will be included in the upcoming WWE 2K15 video game, which is scheduled to be released in October. Speculations arose recently because Sting appears to be on the verge of signing a legends contract with the company, which would enable WWE to use his likeness on merchandise. The belief is that Sting will be a bonus to those that order early.
June 5, 2014
Kenta Kobayashi
Rumors have it that WWE has been signing some of the best international talent to their developmental program. Names like Kevin Steen, Prince Devitt and Kenta Kobayashi have surfaced as potential candidates to join the company later on this year. Unfortunately, though, WWE will not be bringing in Sarita, long considered one of the best international female performers in the business. She received a tryout with the company back in March but no contract has been offered.
June 4, 2014
Bobby Lashley
In case you did not catch Impact Wrestling this week, Samoa Joe made his return to TNA. He received a bit of a pop as he came back to save Eric Young and Bully Ray from an attack by MVP, Kenny King and Bobby Lashley in the final segment of the show. Upon signing with TNA, MVP specifically mentioned Samoa Joe as a performer that he wanted to work against, so that feud could be happening soon.
May 30, 2014
Kevin Steen
While the possibility looked bleak initially, it appears that WWE is set to sign Kevin Steen to a developmental contract. Optimism for his signing was not very high after he received a tryout with the company. However, someone in the WWE front office has convinced management to give the former ROH champion a chance, despite his physical appearance not being up to the company's standards.
May 19, 2014
Kenta Kobayashi
Earlier this year, the hot rumors were that Kenta Kobayashi was going to be signing with WWE after the Japanese star came to the United States and did a tryout for the company. The industry was a bit shocked recently when it was announced that Kobayashi was leaving Pro Wrestling NOAH, his longtime home. The belief is that he no longer wants to work the physically demanding style in Japan.

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
Karl Anderson
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. It is especially high if you take into account that he is now transitioning from in ring performer to commentator.
February 23, 2014
