Those that watched Summerslam 2014 saw Nikki Bella doing her much rumored heel turn. She is expected to work in that role on television going forward.

The face team even attacked Rosa Mendes, who was portraying a heel character. No word yet on why WWE opted to do this.

A little buzz was created this week when Dolph Ziggler defeated Randy Orton in the main event of a WWE live event. A lot of fans believed that this would be the start of a push for the former world heavyweight champion. However, that does not appear to be the case.

WWE ran a live event on Friday in Dallas, and they initially drew in fans by advertising that John Cena would be working the show.

In the previous generation, Sean Waltman was the benchmark when it comes to fans giving him heat because they legitimately resented the performer. It looks like Eva Marie is going to be taking that mantle now. During a recent appearance at a WWE NXT live event, the red haired diva was treated rather rudely by the audience. Things became even worse after she put on a very sub par performance as well.

A black eye usually is not something to be proud of. It is, however, when you're a lifelong wrestling fan being punched by one of the greatest performers that the industry has ever seen.

Since he was given time to address the audience at a live event over the weekend, many were under the impression that Santino Marella was going to be given a segment on Monday Night Raw to let the fans know of his decision to retire from WWE, especially since he was backstage at the show.

In a rather interesting move, WWE did a live event in Long Island this week, and they did not bother to put Zack Ryder, a well known resident of the city, on the show.

Over the weekend, the Great Khali made his return to WWE at a live event in Pennsylvania. The former world heavyweight champion worked a quick match against Titus ONeil.

WWE has been trying to phase him out of their marketing plans as of late.
June 22, 2014
In a rather interesting move, Curtis Axel worked as a baby face during a live event in Pennsylvania over the weekend. It was during a match against Alexander Rusev, where Axel explained to the audience that while they may not like him, they have something in common because they all love America.

Over the last year, fans became aware that Roman Reigns was on the fast track to the main event scene in WWE. The company views him as a potentially big superstar, and they put that to the test this weekend at a live event in Canada.

WWE is showing a lot of faith in Reigns by letting him close out the show on top.
June 15, 2014
Those that watch Monday Night Raw and Smackdown are already aware that Damien Sandow is being buried by WWE.

Since Lita and Mr T went especially long in their segments, it was very obvious to many that Scott Hall had to rush through his hall of fame induction speech. WWE officials were very concerned backstage at the event, and they informed Hall of the situation. That was the reason why Kevin Nash made his joke onstage about having to rush through things.
April 5, 2014
Some heavy editing will be required by WWE to trim down the hall of fame induction speech that Lita gave. The longtime diva told quite a few stories and went well past the thirty minute mark. WWE might simply choose the punchlines in the stories and show the segment where she gave two beers to Arn Anderson on a bet that she lost years ago.
April 5, 2014
Every year, a couple of people within WWE are forced to miss the hall of fame induction ceremony because the company needs to keep the Axxess shows going.

April 5, 2014
While it was heavily speculated at the beginning due to the connection between the two, it has now been confirmed by Lita through her Twitter account that Trish Stratus will be the one to give her hall of fame induction speech at Wrestlemania 30. WWE opted to go with the obvious choice this time around because of their relationship with Trish.
March 25, 2014
Rumors are floating around that there are some wardrobe malfunction pics of Lita floating around the internet. It turns out that the source of those rumors is Dhantenan, a foreign website that has jokes, wallpapers and screen savers. They are luring in WWE fans with the promise of semi nude pictures, but there is really nothing there.
March 21, 2014
Since the company has not officially announced who will induct Lita into the WWE Hall of Fame at Wrestlemania 30 yet, there are still some speculations going around. Right now, the top candidate is still Trish Stratus, who will actually be in New Orleans that weekend, doing some promotional work for the company.

"I admire her so much. She really helped me out when I was nobody. I credit her with a lot of my success. She's definitely one of the most overlooked women in the last decade. She wasn't like anybody else. She let people know that it's OK to just be yourself. She totally deserves it, and I couldn't be happier for her." - Mickie James explains why she wants to attend the hall of fame induction of Lita
March 16, 2014
While the heavily speculated hall of fame induction has yet to be announced by WWE, Sean Waltman has been telling fans as of late that he would be at Wrestlemania 30 to induct his good friend Scott Hall.

"I was out there with Edge and Randy. It was a 2 segment match and at some point during the match Randy rolls out of the ring. I go over to him and check on him and he proceeds to tell me that his shoulder is out and he canít get it back in or move it. So, I tell him to stand up against the ring post, he holds on to his dangling arm, and I shoved his shoulder up against the ring post, heard a click, and it went back in. I told him he was all set and to get back in there and help my dude. His reaction was half hot and half relieved and half still not even clear as to what was going on (I was never good at fractions)." - Lita on helping Randy Orton through an injury
February 14, 2014
Since he played a key part in her career, Dory Funk Jr takes a lot of pride in the fact that Lita will be inducted into the hall of fame during Wrestlemania 30, joining himself and his brother Terry Funk. The legendary former NWA star praised his trainee for the dedication she shown, despite being the only girl in his first class.
