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.
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 his wedding to Maryse Ouellet is taking place later on this month, there is a very good chance that the current story line for the Miz is a way to write him off of television. Though he hasn't been penciled in for a match at Wrestlemania 30 yet, he's expected to return by then.
Miz and Maryse Ouellet are really trying to build a life together. Aside from getting married in the Bahamas in February, the couple also has been looking for a house to purchase. Since Miz has been on the road with WWE, his fiancee has been in charge of finding them a new home.
When WWE previously asked her about a return to the company, Maryse Ouellet turned them down, as she was busy working on some projects and preparing for her wedding with the Miz. The belief, though, is that the company will try to offer her a contract again after the wedding in February.
Since the two of them have traveled all over the world for WWE, Miz and Maryse wanted an exotic location for their upcoming wedding. It has now been revealed that the couple has chosen the Bahamas as the place to share their vows next month.
Maryse Ouellet held the WWE Divas Championship for 216 days straight, but she is about to be surpassed on that list by AJ Lee, who has now held the belt for 212 days straight. No word yet on whether or not WWE will make a big storyline out of that.
