Maryse Ouellet
There's been quite a bit of speculation this week about former divas returning to WWE. The latest name on the rumor mill is Maryse Ouellet. A big part of that is because the Miz mentioned the possibility on Twitter. There are those that believe that Maryse could be interested in a return, if it meant that she would get a spot on Total Divas. The exposure could help her business ventures exponentially.

Alberto Del Rio
It looks the business relationship between Alberto Del Rio and WWE has finally come to a close, as both sides released statements today informing their fans of that. The belief is that a settlement agreement has been made backstage. Del Rio will more than likely never pursue legal action against the company for firing him, while WWE is allowing him to work for any promotion in the world that he wants to.

The show will be about the war between sets of brothers on different sides of the law in a Missouri town.

Honky Tonk Man
In a rather interesting bit of business news, the Honky Tonk Man has revealed that he owns the trademark to the Patriot gimmick, which was used in WCW and WWE. He stated that he has owned it since 2007, which means that Del Wilkes, who has continued to use the gimmick on the independent wrestling circuit over the years, could be legally forced to find a new character to portray.

Dixie Carter
While it seemed all but certain that Impact Wrestling was going to have a new home in 2015, reports are now surfacing that TNA and Spike TV are close to finalizing a deal to keep the business relationship going. Sources have stated that the two sides have been in negotiation the entire time, even as TNA was allowed to seek a contract with another television network. Dixie Carter was expected to make an announcement this week, but if there is a chance to remain with Spike, the reveal could be delayed.

Jeff Jarrett
If Jeff Jarrett wants Global Force Wrestling to do well right off the bat, then he's going to need some familiar faces on the show.

Brock Lesnar
With Brock Lesnar taking the WWE championship home with him during his typical break from the business, Paul Heyman has been left hanging. The massively popular manager has been omitted from a couple of episodes of Monday Night Raw, including the latest one.

Jeff Jarrett

Bobby Lashley
For MMA fighters, you only have a certain amount of time in the business, so you want to get as many fights as humanly possible before you retire. Bobby Lashley is fully aware of this theory, and he embraces it. The TNA star won a fight earlier this month for Bellator, and he's already scheduled for another one next month at a show in Kansas.
September 22, 2014

Heyman should still be able to continue working with WWE.

Eric Young
Since MVP has a badly injured knee, TNA decided to change up the main event of Slammiversary 2014.

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.
