Jim Cornette
Anyone that has heard Jim Cornette speak over the last decade should already know that he absolutely hates Vince Russo. The former WWE manager routinely sways regular conversations into diatribes against Russo. Through Twitter, Russo offered to make pace with Cornette. As expected, though, Cornette wants nothing to do with that. He refuses to end the backstage heat between the two.

Kurt Angle
Earlier in the week, rumors surfaced that a photo of Kurt Angle being passed out on a plane was spotted backstage in WWE. The former world heavyweight champion himself decided to address those rumors on Twitter by denying it completely. He also revealed that he has been sober for almost an entire year now. Angle still plans on negotiating with WWE later on in the year about a return once his contract with TNA expires.

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.

Chris Sabin
Through Twitter, Petey Williams informed his fans that he will retire from professional wrestling after his final match on Saturday. The former TNA X Division Champion will be working against long time friend Chris Sabin at an independent wrestling show in Michigan. No word yet on why he has decided to retire after a dozen years in the business or what he intends to do afterwards.

CM Punk
In a very subtle manner, CM Punk took a jab at WWE for their recent handling of the Emma situation. When she was released, former writer Seth Mates posted a message on Twitter about the company being hypocritical and holding double standards. Punk added that post as a favorite on his account. The fact that Punk would do that shows that he still harbors some resentment towards WWE.
July 3, 2014
Zack Ryder
A status update on Twitter from Zack Ryder, informing fans that WWE is no longer selling any of his merchandise. Rumors have been circulating that the company wants to downplay his popularity, and this revelation lends credibility to those speculations. The fact that Ryder actually pointed it out in public is a sign that he could be really frustrated with his situation in WWE.

Adam Rose
Those that watched Monday Night Raw this week saw an in show commercial being aired for Twisted Tea that featured Santino Marella and Adam Rose. Several of the WWE stars also posted messages on Twitter about the adult beverage. The move is viewed as being quite interesting because the company has spent years shifting their attention towards a younger audience. This product does not necessarily fit that demographic.
July 1, 2014
CM Punk
When he decided to walk away from WWE, CM Punk went on a bit of a social media sabbatical. He recently started posting updates on Twitter again, but it's mostly been about hockey. His first wrestling related tweet was made this week when the former world heavyweight champion posted a little joke about a movie to his good friend Paul Heyman, who responded with a joke of his own.
June 29, 2014
Jonathan Coachman
Earlier in the year, rumors sparked that Jonathan Coachman was going to be returning to WWE to work on some projects with the company. The ESPN broadcaster confirmed those rumors by teasing it on Twitter. Well, it looks like the deal is off. Coachman insinuated that WWE did not want him enough. Since Vince McMahon has been trying to cut cost, the belief is that the company simply could not afford to bring him back.
June 26, 2014
Austin Aries
Since he was rather upset that TNA was allowing fans to choose the type of ring that the performers had to work in, Austin Aries aired his frustrations through Twitter. Now that the six sided ring has been officially brought back, Aries has decided to leave the social media site for the time being. The move is being done out of protest, but there's a good chance that the former TNA champion will be tweeting again some day.
June 25, 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
Scott Hall
After announcing his retirement from UFC, Chael Sonnen posted a quote on his Twitter account that stated, "Bad times don't last, but bad guys do." The comment caught the attention of Scott Hall, who proceeded to criticize Sonnen for stealing the line that he made while being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. This appears to be a misunderstanding as Sonnen is a big fan of wrestling and has used several quotes over the years.
June 22, 2014
Alex Riley
A peculiar thing happened on Twitter recently. John Cena praised Alex Riley for his work on commentary when the latter made a reference to the Major League movie. While this would normally seem like something minor, it actually comes as a shock to those that believe the rumors that Cena was the reason why Riley lost his push. There reportedly was backstage heat between the two.

Evan Bourne
"In good news, 'I'll be wrestling again soon' will actually be happening. Please be patient because nothing happens until the dust settles. Thank you again for your unwavering support.

June 13, 2014
Jeff Jarrett
WWE released quite a bit of performers from their payroll today, but it looks like some of them could have a new job lined up pretty soon. Through Twitter, Jeff Jarrett revealed that he was paying close attention to the performers that WWE is letting go. He noted that the free agent depth in professional wrestling has gotten a lot deeper, which means that he will attempt to sign some of them to Global Force Wrestling.
June 12, 2014
Curt Hawkins
As many of you already know by now, several WWE stars were on the receiving end of a release today, as the company is trying to cut cost a bit. As that is happening, Mark Henry decided to celebrate his 18th year anniversary with the company by posting a message on Twitter, which did not sit well with Curt Hawkins, who was one of the performers released. Hawkins posted this response to Henry.
June 12, 2014
Bully Ray
As many of you already know by now, TNA pulled Bully Ray at the last minute from a House of Hardcore show, which led to Tommy Dreamer cutting a scathing promo on Dixie Carter. The supposed backstage heat has now spilled over to social media, as Carter has responded to Dreamer on Twitter. The two have gone back and forth.
June 10, 2014
Cody Rhodes
Rumors are running rampant right now that Ted DiBiase will be making his return to WWE tonight, as Goldust has been posting several interesting updates on Twitter. He and DiBiase even had a direct interaction, where they asked one another if they would be at Monday Night Raw tonight. WWE is running a story line where Cody Rhodes has been choosing tag team partners for his older brother.
June 9, 2014
Mick Foley
A status update on Twitter from Mick Foley, where he stated that TNA wished him a happy birthday while WWE has yet do so. While the former world heavyweight champion is more than likely just playing around, there appears to be some truth in jest, as rumors have been floating around that there is backstage heat between Foley and some members of management in WWE.

However, there are reports surfacing that the company is basically doing this as a one shot deal. TNA gains additional exposure since the Von Erich name is still beloved in Dallas, while the brothers are given a chance to be introduced to fans in the United States.

The third generation stars have been wrestling over in Japan, gaining some much needed seasoning and experience before attempting to make their way to the United States.

Kevin Von Erich
One of the biggest things that Kevin Von Erich is known for during his long career in professional wrestling is the fact that he wrestled barefoot. He became known all over the world for that. However, it was not an intentional thing. Someone backstage played a prank by hiding his boots before a match, so he ended up going out there without any shoes.
