Alexander Rusev
Rumors are floating around right now that WWE officials were not too pleased with the performance that Alexander Rusev put on at Summerslam 2014 in his flag match against Jack Swagger. His selling of an ankle injury was sub par, and the manner in which he sold it was not very fitting of his character. WWE really wants him in the main event scene, so they're paying much more attention to his matches than usual.

Shelton Benjamin
Another speed bump has presented itself in the career of Shelton Benjamin. The former Intercontinental Champion has suffered a serious knee injury while working in Japan.

August 16, 2014
Evan Bourne
The belief within the industry is that Evan Bourne is hoping to make a return to WWE some day. He recently did a shoot interview, but the video was rather tame. He did not reveal too many secrets, and he did not show a ton of animosity towards the company. If Bourne can show that he can stay sober and injury free, then WWE might be willing to give him another chance since he did have a little bit of a fan base.
August 15, 2014
Rebel
Those that are hoping to see Rebel doing more matches in TNA are going to have to wait. The Knockout injured her arm while working a battle royal for an upcoming episode of Impact Wrestling. The belief is that the injury took place during a spot that involved the steel steps. Many think that she is a bit inexperienced, even though she has trained in OVW.
August 14, 2014
Dean Ambrose
On Monday Night Raw, fans saw Rob Van Dam being pulled from a Beat the Clock match against Seth Rollins. He was replaced by Heath Slater, who got the surprising win, thanks to distractions from Dean Ambrose. It turns out that WWE did that because RVD is actually not cleared to wrestle. He is still recovering from an unknown injury. For what it's worth, it appears that he might be fine soon, as the former world heavyweight champion is scheduled to head to Australia for the tour.
August 6, 2014
Rob Van Dam
Fans who watched WWE Battleground 2014 noticed that Rob Van Dam did not perform. It has now been revealed that the former world heavyweight champion was forced to miss the pay per view because of an undisclosed injury. An update has been promised by WWE in regards to the nature of the ailment. No word yet on whether or not RVD will be missing time from the road.
July 21, 2014
Wade Barrett
While many were afraid that the injury would cause him to lose his push, the fact that management has Wade Barrett scheduled to make an appearance at WWE Battleground 2014 is a good sign that the elevation will continue once he makes his return. The belief is that Barrett will be handing over the Intercontinental Championship to the winner of the battle royal, while planting the seeds for a future feud.
July 15, 2014
Bray Wyatt
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. Bray Wyatt received a black eye during a big live event at Madison Square Garden in New York City over the weeken due to an errant punch by Ric Flair. Reports are stating that the incident happened because Flair forgot that he was wearing his hall of fame ring. There is said to be no backstage heat between the two due to the injury.
July 14, 2014
Daniel Bryan
While many are under the impression that he is temporarily holding the WWE Championship until Daniel Bryan can return from a serious neck injury, word coming out of backstage is that John Cena is expected to have a lengthy title reign. Management wants people to believe that his 15th title reign is very important, so they might keep the belt on him a long time to emphasize that.
July 12, 2014
Daniel Bryan
By now, everyone should know that WWE has plans on pushing Roman Reigns into the main event scene. However, not everyone knows that the original plan was not this accelerated. Management has decided to pull the trigger much quicker on the Reigns push because of the absence of Daniel Bryan, who is still indefinitely on the sideline due to a serious neck injury. There are some concerns backstage that Reigns could be ruined if the push is rushed too quickly.

During a WWE live event in Toronto, Santino Marella announced to the fans in attendance that he has decided to retire from professional wrestling as an in ring performer. He revealed that he has suffered yet another neck injury and has decided that it would not be safe for his long term health to keep wrestling. Since he recently signed a long term contract extension with WWE, there is a chance that Marella could remain with the company in another capacity.
July 6, 2014
Bobby Lashley
Prior to his injury, there were plans in place to have MVP winning the TNA World Heavyweight Championship from Eric Young. Since the company needed a heel champion to be the antagonist against Kurt Angle and his new on screen authority role, the belt went to Bobby Lashley instead. There are talks that TNA could try to figure out how to transfer the belt over to MVP soon.
July 5, 2014
Wade Barrett
Over the last couple of months, Wade Barrett has been gaining momentum in WWE after receiving a little push. A lot of fans want to see him winning the gold at Money in the Bank 2014. However, the chances of that happening have decreased tremendously, as the Intercontinental Champion has suffered some sort of shoulder injury. Medical tests are still being ran, but rumors are strongly suggesting that WWE will pull him from the pay per view.
June 25, 2014
Austin Aries
Right now, TNA is conducting a poll to let the fans decide on whether or not to bring back the six sided ring. While a lot of people are voting for it to take place, Austin Aries has spoken out about the potential move. He states that the ring is more dangerous for the performers. He feels that since they are the ones taking the injury risks, they should be the one to choose which ring gets used.
June 19, 2014
Big Show
On Monday Night Raw, WWE did a story line where Randy Orton was on vacation. That led to speculations as to the real reason why he was not there. It has now been revealed that Orton suffered some sort of collarbone injury while working a match on Smackdown with Big Show. The belief is that the injury is not too severe and that Orton is scheduled to return to the next episode of Monday Night Raw in Cleveland.
June 12, 2014
Adam Rose
During the three hour broadcast of Monday Night Raw this week, Adam Rose was nowhere to be found, and that has sparked quite a bit of speculation about his status in WWE. Kevin Dunn, the producer, reportedly buried Rose backstage not too long ago because he is not a fan of the gimmick. For what it's worth, though, Rose did suffer a bit of an injury at a live event over the weekend.
June 12, 2014
Evan Bourne
Even though he was a highly popular performer, Evan Bourne was one of the many WWE stars who received a release from the company today. There was a lot of potential in the high flyer, as fans reacted very warmly to him, but his stint will forever be marred by a long term injury absence and a couple of drug related suspensions. Bourne had been telling fans that he was on the verge of a return to television over the last couple of months.
June 12, 2014
Chris Jericho
During a recent podcast interview with Chris Jericho, MVP revealed that he was going to try to fight through the knee injury and work Slammiversary 2014. The former United States Heavyweight Champion is scheduled to challenge Eric Young for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship at the pay per view. Management is still working on a backup plan in case his knee does not hold up, however.
June 11, 2014
Michael Cole
One of the biggest advertisers at Payback 2014 was Mountain Dew, and WWE made sure to let their fans know about it by having JBL, Jerry Lawler and Michael Cole promoting the soft drink throughout the evening. Fans in attendance at the pay per view, however, noted that Lawler was actually drinking Diet Coke whenever the cameras were not turned on to him. The commentator kept it hidden for much of the broadcast.
June 3, 2014
Dean Ambrose
A surprising buzz was created last night when fans made mention of Batista wearing blue ring gear at Payback 2014. At one point, it even become the top trend on Twitter, a fact that Michael Cole proudly boasted to fans. Batista was not nearly as amused, as he took to the social media site today to bash fans for focusing on the color of his outfit, as opposed to the tremendous performance that he, Randy Orton, Triple H, Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns put on.
June 2, 2014
Michael Cole
Rumors are floating around right now that WWE wants to make a change with their Monday Night Raw commentating team, but that is just pure speculations at this point.

March 22, 2014
