Now that he is back on good terms with the company after the incident at Summerslam 2013 that cost Jim Ross his job, Ric Flair is being heavily rumored to join the stacked episode of Monday Night Raw on February 24, the same night that WWE Network launches. He will be needed to help promote WCW and NWA content on the network.
Vince McMahon is a big fan of tradition, and it appears that he has found one that he really likes. During Monday Night Raw, it was announced to the live audience that Summerslam 2014 will be taking place in Los Angeles at the Staples Center. This will mark the sixth consecutive year that the event has been held in the city.
While many people are already aware that Dolph Ziggler is being punished by WWE over the last several months, not many are aware as to the exact reason why. Rumor is that he has backstage heat with Randy Orton over comments he made during an interview around the time of Summerslam.
Batista is scheduled to make his WWE return tonight at Monday Night Raw, and it has now been confirmed that he is indeed backstage at the event. Earlier today, he joked about how he should have returned at Summerslam instead of the Royal Rumble because of the cold weather in Ohio.
WWE has already started looking into possible opponents for Batista, and it looks like CM Punk has been chosen. The two of them are currently penciled in for a big match at Summerslam after Punk works his program against Triple H.
While Triple H is publicly supporting the idea, WWE really is not interested in doing a Summerslam pay per view in London because the logistics simply do not work in their favor.
Dolph Ziggler needed help from a WWE diva to gain revenge on former on screen girlfriend AJ Lee and best friend Big E Langston, so he enlisted the help of Kaitlyn. Ziggler and Kaitlyn were victorious at the Summerslam pay per view.
Since she is now committed to her health and fitness, Kharma has now launched a diet website (fit4alldiet.com). The site does not include a lot of details, but it appears to be an affiliate program, where you can log in to your account.
"Here's the story on that. I was there as she was coming in. They knew we had worked together in TNA so they told me. 'Okay, you are going to be her first match'. Everyone knows that her first match is going to be a squash match. So she starts killing all of the girls in the ring. Then we have a house show loop and they tell me. 'Okay, you and Eve are going to get laid out'. I knew they were out to kill everything that we had done in TNA. They kept pushing off that singles match on TV and finally they said 'okay, it's going to happen'. I remember she was there and then all of a sudden she went home. She came back for a pay per view, i think it was in Seattle and she set me aside and told me 'I have to tell you something, I'm pregnant'. I told her congratulations but a part of me was also happy that it was divine intervention to save our history. I sat back said, thank you Lord."
- Gail Kim on Kharma story line in WWE
Kharma has been focusing much more on her health than she has at any point during her professional wrestling career, as the former TNA knockout is now doing the yoga program created by Diamond Dallas Page. She has lost a considerable amount of weight since leaving WWE.
While she has spent much of the past year repairing her personal issues and losing a tremendous amount of weight, WWE has shown very minimal interest in bringing Kharma back into the fold. The focus is on the current divas in developmental.
Through Twitter, Kharma showed off a picture of her new hairstyle from the salon.
Kharma posted a picture of her new boyd on Twitter, and it looks like the former WWE and TNA star has lost close to 100 pounds.
Mickie James, the current TNA Knockouts Champion, stated that she hopes that the company brings Awesome Kong, formerly known as Kharma in WWE, back into the fold, so that she and Gail Kim can work separate programs against her.
