Kofi Kingston

There are those backstage that were disappointed with Royal Rumble 2014, as many feel that there were not enough highlight spots during the match. Kofi Kingston was praised for doing his best to produce memorable moments, but very few others were able to stand out. Jamie Noble, the agent in charge of the match, has backstage heat because of that.

Roman Reigns
While he has lost a bit of momentum since Royal Rumble 2014, there are still plans in WWE to give Roman Reigns a big push. Since the Shield pulled a face turn recently, there are talks of elevating Reigns to the point where he can be booked in a match against Triple H at Summerslam 2014. The hope there is that HHH can make him into a star by giving him a memorable match.

April 11, 2014
Andre the Giant
Despite not being utilized all that frequently on television, Justin Gabriel was given a spot in the Andre the Giant match at Wrestlemania 30. The belief is that WWE is rewarding him for not making a big fuss about being removed from Royal Rumble 2014 at the last minute. Management likes that he does as he is told backstage.
April 6, 2014
Andre the Giant
Since management has been unable to figure out a way for him to make his long awaited return, there are now rumors that Evan Bourne could be one of the guys to take the four remaining spots in the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal at Wrestlemania 30. The high flying performer was initially scheduled for Royal Rumble 2014, but WWE pulled him from the big match.
March 27, 2014
Bray Wyatt
If WWE goes through with their plans of putting the heavyweight championship on Daniel Bryan at Wrestlemania 30, then one of his first opponents could very well be Bray Wyatt, who is expected to receive a huge push at the pay per view over John Cena. The writers can push their match at Royal Rumble 2014 as the story behind the feud and title program.
March 23, 2014
Andre the Giant
At Royal Rumble 2014, Justin Gabriel came really close to making his pay per view return, but that spot was taken away from him at the last minute. His chances of working Wrestlemania 30 this year has increased tremendously now that he is one of the many veteran performers who are being penciled in for the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal.
March 18, 2014
Andre the Giant
The Great Khali made his return to the ring this week by working a match against CJ Parker at the WWE NXT taping. Prior to that, he had not worked a match since Royal Rumble 2014. The belief is that the former world heavyweight champion is going to be given a spot at Wrestlemania 30 in the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal.
March 16, 2014
Big Show
Some eyes backstage have been on the Great Khali, as management has not been utilizing him as much lately. He has only worked two televised matches, a win over Damien Sandow on Monday Night Raw and a brief appearance at Royal Rumble 2014. WWE also sent Big Show to India for a promotional tour instead of him recently as well.
February 22, 2014
Kevin Nash
When Kevin Nash made a surprise appearance at Royal Rumble 2014, many noted that he looked younger because he dyed his hair and beard black. Now that his brief stint with WWE is done, he has gone back to his natural gray look.
February 13, 2014
CM Punk

While we still do not have a definite answer as to how long he has been upset with the company, we do know now that CM Punk was already contemplating a departure from WWE as early as Royal Rumble 2014. He vented to Mick Foley at the time about not being happy within the company and having trouble dealing with injuries.

February 10, 2014
Alberto Del Rio
Since he has voiced his displeasure to those backstage, WWE has been attempting to appease Alberto Del Rio a bit. Since the start of 2014, the former world heavyweight champion has been given eight televised victories. His only losses came against Rey Mysterio on Smackdown and at Royal Rumble 2014.
February 7, 2014
Evan Bourne

After he was pulled from Royal Rumble 2014 at the last minute, Evan Bourne told fans on Twitter that he was still working on making his return to WWE, but as of right now, it does not appear that management is making that a priority backsage.

February 3, 2014
Big Show

Since the company wanted to sell the brutality of Brock Lesnar for his match against Big Show at Royal Rumble 2014, they had Mark Henry work an injury angle and take a couple of weeks off. It looks the former world champion is returning to WWE, possibly as soon as Monday Night Raw this week.

February 3, 2014
Daniel Bryan

After what took place at Royal Rumble 2014, WWE officials were concerned that the audience at Monday Night Raw was going to hijack the event by voicing their opinions, so in order to help squash some of that and control the crowd, management had Daniel Bryan cutting a promo to open up the show.

February 1, 2014
Daniel Bryan

Long known backstage as someone with a short fuse, Randy Orton was said to be irate with the fans at Royal Rumble 2014 because he feels that they interrupted his performance against John Cena by openly rooting for Daniel Bryan. Orton does have a history of being upset with audiences.

February 1, 2014
Alexander Rusev

When Alexander Rusev made his debut at Royal Rumble 2014, many were under the impression that it was a permanent call up to the main roster. However, it appears that management wants the developmental wrestler to have a little more seasoning by working in WWE NXT for a few more weeks.

January 31, 2014
Jey Uso

While watching Royal Rumble 2014, Rikishi expressed his frustration with WWE by posting a message on Twitter. He asked what the company was doing with his sons, Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso. He also stated that the "writers suck" and ended the statement with "bullshit".

January 29, 2014
Alexander Rusev

Alexander Rusev, the developmental wrestler who made his debut at Royal Rumble 2014, was trained by Rikishi. His relationship with the former WWE star helped help progress in the industry a lot quicker than a lot of other guys who have tried to make it to the main roster.

January 29, 2014
Booker T

Former nWo stable mates Kevin Nash and Booker T have come to terms on a contract. Nash, who surprised wrestling fans by returning to WWE at Royal Rumble 2014, will be working a show for Booker on February 15, and there is a chance that he could be working more dates for the promotion.

January 29, 2014
Dolph Ziggler
In an interesting move, WWE had Dean Ambrose defend the United States Heavyweight Championship at a live event in Saudi Arabia this week. He successfully retained the belt in a fatal four way that consisted of Cody Rhodes, Kofi Kingston and Dolph Ziggler. Ambrose has rarely been allowed to defend the US title over the last couple of months.
April 18, 2014
Titus ONeil
While he managed to avoid an injury after taking an over the top rope dive at Wrestlemania 30, Kofi Kingston might have been injured during his taped match against Titus ONeil during WWE Superstars. He was limping noticeably and required some help to leave the arena. Some believe that he might be willing to work through the injury if it is not too bad.
April 9, 2014
Antonio Cesaro
Each year, wrestlers and officials backstage rank the performances by their stars at the biggest pay per view event of the year, but WWE is having a hard time trying to figure out what the best match of Wrestlemania 30 was. Everyone came through with good matches, even the mid level guys like Kofi Kingston and Antonio Cesaro in the battle royal.
April 7, 2014
Steve Austin
Considering how incredible the show was, WWE should not have any issues with coming up with Wrestlemania 30 highlights to show on Monday Night Raw this week. Brock Lesnar, Undertaker, Hulk Hogan, Steve Austin, Rock, Daniel Bryan, Triple H, Batista, John Cena, Bray Wyatt, Randy Orton, Kofi Kingston, Big Show and Antonio Cesaro provided plenty of memorable Wrestlemania moments.
April 7, 2014
Kofi Kingston
"People always say, 'Oh, there haven't been many black champions,' but on the other hand, there are a whole lot of white people that never won a belt either. These days, I think it's less of a racial thing. I honestly believe that if you are able to entertain and interact with the crowd, it doesn't matter what ethnicity you may be. WWE will reward you." - Kofi Kingston discusses racism and backstage politics
March 26, 2014
Drew McIntyre
WWE has announced that the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal will consists of Alberto Del Rio, Big E Langston, Big Show, Brodus Clay, Christian, Cody Rhodes, Damien Sandow, Darren Young, Dolph Ziggler, Drew McIntyre, Fandango, Goldust, Great Khali, Heath Slater, Jinder Mahal, Justin Gabriel, Kofi Kingston, Mark Henry, Miz, R Truth, Rey Mysterio, Santino Marella, Sheamus, Sin Cara, Titus ONeil and Zack Ryder. There are also four spots available for last minute entrants.
March 25, 2014
Kofi Kingston
While he is not a main event performer in WWE, Kofi Kingston draws in a pretty good salary. His downside guarantee is $254,200 a year. Even though he does have to pay for his own travel expenses, Kingston does get thrown into a couple of pay per view events per year, which gives his annual salary a nice boost from the PPV bonuses.
March 24, 2014
Summer Rae
Since Wrestlemania is right around the corner, WWE has decided to tape a commercial in New Orleans to promote the pay per view. Fandango, Summer Rae, Kofi Kingston, Sheamus, Big Show, Nikki Bella and Brie Bella are all in town for the shoot. There are also reports that Darren Young might be a part of the cast as well, but that is unconfirmed.
March 22, 2014
Kofi Kingston
"I've been clamoring at that for a while now, but the situation has to be right and the timing has to be right; everything has to be right. I wouldn't want to just do it for the sake of doing it because you might get lost in the shuffle that way. If the situation was right, it would give me a chance to do something completely different and show people a side of me they have never seen before, which I think would be great and I think would be fun." - Kofi Kingston wants heel turn
March 20, 2014
Andre the Giant
While a lot of fans bought into the hype of the match since a legendary name was attached to it, WWE is viewing the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal as an afterthought. There is even a strong push to move it off the pay per view and utilized it as a kickoff match, despite several stars such as Ryback, Kofi Kingston, Big E Langston and Dolph Ziggler being rumored for spots.
March 15, 2014
Andre the Giant
While he is highly unlikely to be chosen by management to win the thing, a lot of eyes will still be on Kofi Kingston during the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal during Wrestlmeania 30. Many are expecting him to come up with a high impact spot, which he has been known for doing during Money in the Bank and Royal Rumble.
March 15, 2014
Andre the Giant
For a while there, it looked like Kofi Kingston was going to miss out on Wrestlemania 30, even though he was heavily involved in some of the charitable work that WWE is doing in New Orleans, but the former Intercontinental Champion will now be given a chance to work at the pay per view by being an entrant in the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal.
March 12, 2014
Kofi Kingston
Since he was heavily involved with some charitable work for the company in New Orleans, there were those that believed that Kofi Kingston was going to be given a match at Wrestlemania 30. However, there are no plans backstage to do that for him. He will still be heavily involved in the event, but just not in a wrestling capacity.
March 5, 2014
Kofi Kingston

Seth Rollins
There are talks that Big Show will be returning on Monday Night Raw this week, as the former world heavyweight champion was working live events for WWE over the weekend. He teamed up with Kofi Kingston to take on Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns. No word yet on who he will be working with when he returns, but there are talks that WWE wants him on Wrestlemania 30.
March 2, 2014
Kofi Kingston
"Yeah, we were each other's road wives. With Punk, I consider him to be like a brother to me. He's one of the guys who took me under his wing when I first came. So we've been able to maintain a good relationship. And there are very few people in the business that you can call true friends, so I consider Punk to be that and more. So yes, "road wife" is the term we used to sum that all up." - Kofi Kingston on his relationship with CM Punk
February 22, 2014
Jack Swagger
WWE removed the match involving Big E Langston, Drew McIntyre and Jinder Mahal from the Hulu broadcast of Monday Night Raw this week. They also removed Jack Swagger and Kofi Kingston. That basically confirms that management views the Intercontinental Championship match at Elimination Chamber 2014 to be a filler segment.
February 21, 2014
Rey Mysterio
During a recent podcast interview, Kofi Kingston was asked who his dream opponent would be for Wrestlemania. He quickly replied that Rey Mysterio would be his first choice. Unfortunately, though, that seems highly unlikely to happen, as Kingston has not been penciled in for a Wrestlemania 30 spot yet. He could be a last minute addition.
February 16, 2014
Kofi Kingston
After months of being used as filler in the tag team division, it looks like Jack Swagger is going to receive a bit of a push in singles again. After defeating Kofi Kingston, Mark Henry and Rey Mysterio on Smackdown, he has earned himself a shot at the WWE IC title. It has also now been revealed that the match will take place at Elimination Chamber 2014.
February 15, 2014
Mark Henry
There are some concerns within WWE right now about Rey Mysterio, as the masked performer might have possibly been injured during the Smackdown taping on Tuesday. He worked a fatal four way match against Jack Swagger, Mark Henry and Kofi Kingston. He landed wrong in the ring and had to roll outside to the floor to grab his knee.
February 13, 2014
