Rock
"My mom and my cousin, Savelina Fanene, were struck head on by a drunk driver this week. They lived. First reaction is to find the person who did this and do unrelenting harm to them, but then you realize the most important thing is my family lived through this, and we can hug each other that much tighter these days. Hug your own family tighter today and be grateful you can tell them you love them." - Rock talks about how a DUI almost killed his family
August 10, 2014

December 7, 2013
Big E Langston

"I don't think they give a s--t about (indies) buzz. They only care about their own buzz, which makes sense. You can't solely cater to the niche fan base — it's a tricky demographic to deal with. But you can see somebody get over with those fans and think maybe they can do it in WWE, too. And they see someone who has the passion to chase the dream, traveling around the world. If you have passion, if you're a good performer, those are two of the most important things in wrestling, and they're things you can't manufacture. Some people are naturals. Take Big E Langston; he has such a perfect match of athleticism and charisma, and he looks like an action figure."

August 22, 2014
Alexander Rusev
There are rumors floating around right now that Zeb Colter is going to be dropped from television and removed as the manager of Jack Swagger.

Management still views him as an asset.
August 22, 2014
Randy Orton
There is a little bit of a dilemma backstage in WWE right now when it comes to the Roman Reigns push. Management does not want to put the title on him just yet because they feel that it would be more effective to let him do it at Wrestlemania 31. However, he has gone pretty high up the card already, as Randy Orton is near the top of the ladder. Management will have to figure out what to do with him over the next several months.
August 22, 2014
Bray Wyatt
When Bray Wyatt was closing out his feud with John Cena, many wondered who WWE was going to pair him up with next.

August 21, 2014
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
Brie Bella
At Summerslam 2014, fans witnessed the beginning of the feud between Nikki Bella and Brie Bella when the former turned on her sister and helped Stephanie McMahon win the match. The belief is that the feud was instigated by the producers of Total Divas. They wanted an intriguing story for the upcoming season of the show.
August 21, 2014

August 21, 2014
Alexander Rusev
Rumors are floating around right now that WWE officials were not too pleased with the performance that Alexander Rusev put on at Summerslam 2014 in his flag match against Jack Swagger. His selling of an ankle injury was sub par, and the manner in which he sold it was not very fitting of his character. WWE really wants him in the main event scene, so they're paying much more attention to his matches than usual.
August 21, 2014
Dean Ambrose
There is a split backstage in WWE when it comes to viewing Dean Ambrose as a main event performer. A lot of people in management do not view the former Shield member as someone of that caliber. He also has his supporters, and that group has probably increased in size after his superb performances with Seth Rollins at Summerslam 2014 and Monday Night Raw.
August 21, 2014
Alberto Del Rio
The hot rumors right now is that WWE is going to prevent Alberto Del Rio from working for another wrestling promotion in the United States for the next year. In exchange, the company will continue to pay him, even though he has been given a release. That has led fans to speculate as to how much money he will be given. The belief is that it will not be the full amount of the contract, as he will not be paid for working live events.
August 21, 2014
Dean Ambrose
Expect to hear plenty of comparisons between Dean Ambrose and Steve Austin over the next couple of months. WWE is having the former Shield member take elements of the Austin character in an attempt to win over even more fans. While it was not shown on Monday Night Raw, the company is doing a story where Ambrose refused medical attention after being severely injured by Kane and Seth Rollins.
August 21, 2014
Vince McMahon
When WWE announced that they were moving Summerslam 2015 from Los Angeles to New York, the company did not reveal the actual location of the pay per view. There are rumors floating around now that Vince McMahon may try to do the event at the massive MetLife Stadium that was the host of Wrestlemania 29. It's quite the risky endeavor, so the belief is that WWE will eventually end up choosing the Barclays Center or the IZOD Center instead.
August 21, 2014
Bully Ray
Since he has worked himself into shape and became a legitimate main event performer, many are speculating that Bully Ray will be heading to WWE after his contract with TNA expires in a couple of days.

August 21, 2014

Rumors have surfaced that he is quite upset with the company in regards to his contract situation. Reports are now surfacing that Mysterio had a handshake agreement with Triple H that would have enabled him to walk away from the company. However, Vince McMahon reportedly decided to overrule that and force to remain under contract to WWE for another year.
August 20, 2014
Antonio Cesaro
Since neither man was involved in a feud, it looks like WWE is about to pair Antonio Cesaro and Sheamus in a feud for the United States Heavyweight Championship. The story between the two might have been initiated during WWE Main Event. Management has been known to drop stories abruptly, so if this does not make it to Monday Night Raw or Smackdown, then the feud is not going forward.
