Debut
2004
Ultimate Warrior
In times of tragedy, the worst of the worst comes out, in order to take advantage of the situation. Several people have been selling illegal Ultimate Warrior merchandise shortly after the WWE legend died last week. Lawyers for his marketing company have already sent out cease and desist letters to over 100 different people, demanding that they quit selling products with his likeness attached.

Rey Mysterio
Since the masked performer has yet to put his signature on a brand new contract, WWE has been purposely downplaying his role on Monday Night Raw and Smackdown. However, management does indeed want to keep Rey Mysterio around for at least another year, as they feel that he still has some merchandise value. Plus, he is already involved in the Flintstones movie.

Rey Mysterio
With his contract expiring in a few weeks, things might have just became easier for WWE to let Rey Mysterio walk away. Merchandise sales for the masked superstar have dropped as of late. His consistent ability to generate revenue for the company was a big reason why they never gave up on Mysterio as his body repeatedly failed him over the years.

Hunico
While there is a legal storm brewing between the two sides, there is now a chance that WWE might not be willing to fight with Sin Cara over the use of the name, as the value of the character has dropped tremendously over the last couple of weeks. When merchandise sales remained strong, management utilized Hunico in the role to help keep that going. The numbers have since dropped.
March 14, 2014
CM Punk
For the longest time there, CM Punk was the second best when it comes to moving merchandise. The fact that he was only behind John Cena is a big reason why Vince McMahon wants him back in WWE. Well, his absence has caused Daniel Bryan, whose popularity has remained strong despite not being given the title, to move up into the second spot now.
March 14, 2014
Steve Austin
Since the company was so focused on other wrestlers over the last couple of months, Steve Austin has not been a focal point for WWE heading into Wrestlemania 30, but there is now a change, as management wants to do a big merchandise push in the coming months. Despite not being there any more, Austin still remains as one of the top merchandise sellers for WWE.
March 13, 2014
Jim Ross
During his podcast interview with Jim Ross, the topic of John Cena doing a heel turn was brought up with Steve Austin. The former WWE star was adamant that the move should not happen. Austin pointed out that his own heel turn was a disaster because it ruined his merchandise sales. He feels that the same would happen if Cena were to make the turn.
March 6, 2014
CM Punk
In the past, Vince McMahon was quick to bury wrestlers who did anything remotely negative towards WWE, so it is quite telling that the CEO has opted to remain quiet on CM Punk. The belief is that McMahon really is hoping that Punk changes his mind and returns because he moves a lot of merchandise and is quite the draw for the company.
March 6, 2014
Sin Cara
Despite being sent legal threats from the company, it appears that Sin Cara has opted to be defiant towards WWE. The masked wrestler recently won a championship down in Mexico while using the name and character, both of which he claims ownership to. New merchandise has been made despite the possibility of a lawsuit coming.
March 5, 2014
Sting
While things have been quiet as of late, the belief is that WWE is still negotiating with Sting on a contract. It will not be the type of deal that fans have been longing for over the last couple of years. The discussions now have been leaning more towards merchandise and a hall of fame induction at Wrestlemania 31.
February 21, 2014
CM Punk
As is expected, there are several people backstage within WWE that are trying to discredit CM Punk and his value to the company. Some are stating that he was not much of a draw to live events and pay per view events. His supporters, however, are pointing out that he sold the most merchandise behind John Cena.
February 13, 2014
Hunico
Hunico might be cashing in a nice pay per view bonus check at Wrestlemania 30 this year, as WWE still has interest in using the Sin Cara character at the event. Merchandise sales have remained strong, and the company wants to continue to capitalize. There may be a lawsuit coming from the original performer, though.
February 12, 2014
CM Punk
While there are still fans clamoring for him to move down the card, John Cena should remain high in the eyes of WWE officials, as his merchandise is still the top movers. Randy Orton and CM Punk round out the top three, with Daniel Bryan coming in at fourth. Sin Cara still remains a top seller.
February 6, 2014
Sin Cara

Even though he did not work the recent European tour, merchandise sales for items featuring Sin Cara were pretty high, which helps him get back on the graces of people in management.

Big Show

While she has attempted to make up with Nikki Bella and Brie Bella recently, it is uncertain if she will be invited backstage at Wrestlemania 30 itself.

"TNA called me twice this year, I think they're a great company but I'm loving my time in ROH and I'm definitely happy with my fiancée. Who knows if that will ever change, but I wish TNA all the best in the world, I think the girls there are tremendous."

Maria Kanellis

"I'm kind of an underground Paul Heyman girl and he is what really inspired the ditsy character, he really inspired me to do the things that I did at WWE. I'm an admirer of his work, I think what he has done with so many guys and throughout ECW was incredible. When I was in OVW I just watched him as he helped CM Punk every day, Punk was already incredible but then Paul Heyman kind of pushed him over the edge and gave him that opportunity on ECW to be who he is today."
