Debut
2002
Batista
For the longest time there, MVP was the longest reigning WWE United States Heavyweight Champion, but that mark looks to be broken soon if Dean Ambrose can hold on to the belt a little while longer. The Shield member rarely defends the belt, but WWE could opt to include it in the story line against Triple H, Randy Orton and Batista.
April 18, 2014
Batista
Even though the stable was just reunited, it appears that WWE is already planting seeds for an eventual breakup between Triple H, Batista and Randy Orton. Through an online poll, the company has been asking fans which of the three is the most dominant. The belief is that WWE will go with a story line where egos break apart the trio like it did several years back.
April 18, 2014
Fandango
Even though her character was dumped by Fandango in the story line, do not expect a face turn for Summer Rae. The blonde diva will be working as a heel when she returns to WWE after filming her parts in the upcoming Marine sequel. Summer will also be utilized more as a wrestler this time around as opposed to being a side character.
April 17, 2014
Antonio Cesaro
Since the title belt is being given more of a story line than it has been in a while, a lot of fans have been speculating as to who will win the tournament to determine a new challenger for Big E Langston and the WWE Intercontinental Championship. Right now, management is leaning towards Antonio Cesaro, who is in the midst of a big push.
April 16, 2014
Antonio Cesaro
With Antonio Cesaro branching off and aligning with Paul Heyman, rumors have it that WWE is looking for a replacement tag team partner for Jack Swagger. Zeb Colter even played up the story line through Twitter. There is a very good chance that the company repackages one of the current veterans on the roster who do not have a story line to work with.
April 15, 2014
Brie Bella
The big story line coming out of Total Divas this week is John Cena purchasing a house for Nikki Bella. The couple was the centerpiece of the reality television show earlier when Cena refused to marry Nikki, prompting wrestling fans to wonder if they were going to break up. Since Brie Bella got married to Daniel Bryan, Cena has to figure out ways to keep Nikki happy.
April 13, 2014
Fandango
Since Summer Rae is going to be pushed as a singles star now, WWE opted to split her up from Fandango, who sold the story line through his Twitter account. As many saw on Smackdown this week, Summer Rae has been replaced with Layla El, who actually has experience as a dancer. WWE has been trying to find a role for Layla since her return.
April 12, 2014
Fandango
Despite being a pretty popular act, WWE has decided to split up Summer Rae and Fandango, who has been selling the story line through social media over the past couple of days. Fandango is being paired with another person soon, as his act needs a female dancer. Summer Rae will be utilized as more of an in ring performer with the rest of the Total Divas cast.
April 10, 2014
Dixie Carter
The big draw on Impact Wrestling this week is the return of Dixie Carter to television. TNA has been working a story line where she has been in hiding since losing control of the company to MVP at TNA Lockdown 2014. No official word has been given on what her character will do on Impact Wrestling, but the belief is that Carter will be going after MVP again.
April 10, 2014
CM Punk
Since he walked away from the company, CM Punk has now been removed from the upcoming Flintstones movie. To make it easier on the script writers, WWE has decided to replace him with Rey Mysterio, which should make it fairly easy for them to adapt the story line. The belief backstage is that Punk is going to just wait until his contract expires this summer.
April 10, 2014
Billy Gunn
WWE.com is reporting that Billy Gunn suffered a serious injury during his match against Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns at Wrestlemania 30. The report reveals that he was coughing up blood backstage after taking the triple power bomb from the Shield at the end of the match. No word yet on whether this is a story line or a legitimate injury.
April 7, 2014
Emma
While some are under the impression that WWE could be dropping the Emma story line because it was not featured on Monday Night Raw, the company still has plans on pushing her. It was simply a matter of time being a factor, as the company was heavily trying to promote as much of Wrestlemania 30 as they possible could have on television.
April 4, 2014
Ric Flair
While the legendary Nature Boy is expected to be at the event, Ric Flair is not expected to be utilized on camera at Wrestlemania 30. WWE still has plans on making him into a manager for at least one of the performers, but the creative department has been much too busy over the last couple of months to come up with a story line for that.
April 4, 2014
Brock Lesnar
One of the rumors floating around backstage in WWE is that Undertaker has not been given as much creative power over his Wrestlemania 30 story line with Brock Lesnar as he has been during the past couple of years. The buildup has been extremely lackluster, and some are blaming that on management relying solely on the name value to sell the match.
April 3, 2014
Roman Reigns
While the company has decided to drop the idea of giving him a high profile match at Wrestlemania 30, WWE officials are still interested in pushing Roman Reigns. The company simply opted to throw him into a last minute match because they were unable to figure out a way to give him a better story line and opponent to work with on the pay per view.
April 2, 2014
Brie Bella
Having been able to capture the attention of a lot of people with just the first two episodes this season, Total Divas has now become a show that fans are looking forward to. The next episode will feature an interesting story line, where Summer Rae will flirt with Daniel Bryan, which causes some backstage heat between the blonde bombshell and Brie Bella.
March 27, 2014
Billy Gunn
In a sign that they still have a good amount of backstage power, Road Dogg and Billy Gunn have been pushing management to let them work with the Shield before WWE has Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins going their separate ways. It looks like the company will be giving them that chance at Wrestlemania 30 in the Kane story line.
March 21, 2014
Mike Knox
Since the end of the Aces and Eights story line, a lot of fans have been wondering about the status of the supporting cast and whether they would still remain with the company, but those that watched Impact Wrestling tonight, they now know that Mike Knox is returning to TNA television. A segment was aired, where he explains his absence over the last several weeks.
March 20, 2014
Dixie Carter
A big meeting is taking place in TNA today, where Dixie Carter is talking to the performers about the big story line for Impact Wrestling that she has planned. It is supposed to so good that she has even asked the office workers to relocate during the meeting, so that nothing will be leaked. Only the wrestlers and writers will be allowed to know the story.
March 20, 2014
Daniel Bryan
WWE is reporting that Daniel Bryan was injured during his Monday Night Raw segment with Triple H. The website has stated that he has a dislocated shoulder and potential ligament tear. This is merely just for the story line, as Bryan was able to escape any real damage, aside from the bruises and the aches that normally come with the job.

April 8, 2014
AJ Styles
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.

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. It is especially high if you take into account that he is now transitioning from in ring performer to commentator.
February 23, 2014
Karl Anderson
People in WWE aren't the only one praising Antonio Cesaro after his phenomenal match against John Cena on Monday Night Raw. Karl Anderson, a veteran of the independent wrestling circuit and Japan, posted this message on Twitter praising Cesaro for his work and how he came up in the industry.

There are speculations going around right now that TNA could be bringing in the Bullet Club, a popular stable in New Japan consisting of Karl Anderson, Luke Gallows, Prince Devitt and a couple of other guys, into the company sometimes in 2014. They're gaining steam right now in the industry, and they do have a connection with MVP.
February 8, 2014

Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows will be defending the IWGP tag team championship against David Hart Smith and Lance Hoyt. The main event is a heavyweight title fight between Hiroshi Tanahashi and Shinsuke Nakamura.
February 8, 2014
CM Punk
In a rather interesting move, since he is weighing a developmental contract offer from WWE right now, Prince Devitt took to Twitter to recruit CM Punk to come to Japan to join the Bullet Club, a stable that also consists of Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows.
February 7, 2014
Karl Anderson

Karl Anderson has been preaching to fans and wrestlers that there are other options in professional wrestling besides WWE. In order to truly get his point across, he revealed on Twitter that he made $640,000 working for New Japan last year, which is higher than what most WWE stars make.

February 3, 2014

Karl Anderson

It looks like the decision to tour Japan has become a good career move for DOC, as the man formerly known as Luke Gallows in WWE has become a bit of a star there. He is currently teaming with Karl Anderson as the Bullet Club.

December 16, 2013
Tensai

WWE star Tensai recently revealed through Twitter that he saved Karl Anderson, who has grown to become a big wrestling star overseas, from being fired by New Japan Pro Wrestling after his first tour with the company.
