Mike Knox
Now that it has been revealed on Impact Wrestling that Mike Knox will be making his return to television soon, rumors have surfaced that Taz is actually one of the people backstage who has been pushing TNA to keep the performer around. Throughout the last year, Taz and Bully Ray have seen their backstage powers increase within the company.

Mike Knox
Since the end of the Aces and Eights story line, a lot of fans have been wondering about the status of the supporting cast and whether they would still remain with the company, but those that watched Impact Wrestling tonight, they now know that Mike Knox is returning to TNA television. A segment was aired, where he explains his absence over the last several weeks.

Vince McMahon
Vince McMahon has another big headache to deal with, as his company is being hit with a class action lawsuit. The claim is that WWE purposely misled investors about their ability to secure a much better television deal with the network than the contract that they eventually signed. The promise of a bigger television deal was reportedly the reason why a lot of investors sank money into WWE, causing their stocks to soar to record levels.
July 26, 2014
Ric Flair
In an attempt to get as much out of his name value as possible, WWE has been utilizing Ric Flair during live events as a special guest referee. The hope is that his appearance will help convince some fans to attend the show. As of right now, he has been booked on a couple of shows throughout the summer in this particular role. No word yet on what WWE plans on doing with him on television, though.

Big E Langston
On Monday Night Raw this week, Xavier Woods, who is only used sporadically on television by WWE, made a surprising appearance after a tag team match featuring Curtis Axel, Ryback, Kofi Kingston and Big E Langston. He cut a quick promo about how Kingston and Langston cannot get very far in WWE by being nice guys. This is the start of the long rumored stable, which has already been compared to the Nation of Domination by fans online.
July 22, 2014
Road Dogg
Since the company has been releasing people left and right due to the budget cuts, there is some understandable paranoia backstage in WWE nowadays. Recently, people were under the impression that Road Dogg had been released because he was not around for a couple of the television taping. However, it turned out to be a false alarm, as the former Intercontinental Champion was simply on vacation.
July 21, 2014
Angelina Love
Rumors are floating around that there is more to the story of Summer Rae and Layla El teaming up than what WWE tells us on television. Many are saying that the move was in response to Velvet Sky and Angelina Love being back together in TNA. Management wanted to reunite LayCool, but since Michelle McCool was not interested in making a full time return, they opted to go with Summer Rae, as the two of them share a physical resemblance.
July 19, 2014
Kenta Kobayashi
Triple H might be downplaying his arrival to the developmental program, but Kenta Kobayashi is far from a regular new performer joining WWE. Internally, he is being viewed as a major marketing asset as the company is hoping to expand its reaches in Japan. A television network has already agreed to air WWE NXT since Kobayashi will be featured on those shows. The Japanese star is also set to help promote the WWE Network when it expands overseas.

Jeff Jarrett
While there has been some pessimism on Global Force Wrestling being able to secure a television deal due to the decline of WWE lately, Jeff Jarrett is reportedly in negotiations with two cable companies right now. It is being said that one of the networks has never carried professional wrestling before, so it is pretty impressive that Jarrett was able to convince them to give it a try.
July 16, 2014
Cameron
In a sign that management might have forgiven her, Emma was not only given a match on WWE Main Event this week, but she was also given a victory over Cameron, who recently did a heel turn. Rumors floated around that the company was not going to be utilizing her on television after she was arrested for shoplifting, but it looks like WWE is attempting to avoid further attention to the incident by going about as usual.
July 16, 2014
Jeff Jarrett
Now that Jeff Jarrett has revealed that a new announcement for Global Force Wrestling is coming soon, speculations have arisen that it will be about a potential television deal that the TNA founder has been working on. While it is unlikely to be on a big network, securing a national TV deal would put GFW ahead of a lot of other wrestling companies.
July 11, 2014
Big Show
For those of you that do not know, Big Show has been off the road and filming a WWE Studios film called Vendetta. The former world heavyweight champion is expected to be done with that movie in a couple of weeks, as WWE has already advertised him for live events in August. Big Show should also be returning to television around the same time as well.
July 11, 2014
Emma
Even though the company quickly rehired her, Emma might actually still be in hot water with WWE. The diva was not spotted backstage at Monday Night Raw or Smackdown this week. The belief is that the company has sent her home for the time being. Many believe that it will be quite some time before Emma is allowed back on television.
July 10, 2014
Cameron
The big brawl between Naomi Knight and Cameron that you witnessed on Monday Night Raw this week was indeed the big breakup that has been teased over the last couple of weeks by WWE. As many already know, this story was set up for the sake of Total Divas, as producers wanted more dramatic stories for the reality television show. Since it is involved with another network, the belief is that WWE will get behind the story and put some emphasis on it.
July 9, 2014
Miz
Up until today, it was a bit of a mystery as to when Ric Flair would be making his television return for WWE. Well, that puzzle has now been solved. The former world heavyweight champion is officially scheduled to make appearances on the next episodes of Monday Night Raw and Smackdown. No word yet on what WWE will have him doing, but there have been rumors of a reunion with the Miz floating around over the last couple of months.
July 9, 2014
Sheamus
Even though he is the current reigning United States Heavyweight Champion, Sheamus has not been given an actual feud to work with. While there are speculations going around that he is upset with WWE for not giving him an official program, those backstage are saying that he is fine with things for now. Management continues to utilize him on television each week, and he more often than not is given a spot on the pay per view events.
July 8, 2014
Santino Marella
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. Management, however, felt that it was not the right time for such a thing. No word yet on whether or not Marella will get to say farewell to his fans on television.
July 8, 2014
Sheamus
Earlier in the year, WWE had plans on doing a heel turn for Sheamus, in order to bring a little more life back into his stale character. The company even attempted the move on television, but it was botched and the majority of fans did not realize that it had taken place. Rumors going around now is that WWE has completely scrapped the idea. Sheamus will continue to work as a baby face US champion until they can decide on something for him to do.
July 6, 2014
David Otunga
Earlier in this week, Zack Ryder revealed to fans that WWE is no longer selling his merchandise. The belief is that it is a part of the company's plan to diminish his name value for when they decide to release him from his contract. Since the start of the year, Ryder has only been utilized eight times on television, all of which were losses. He hasn't had a victory on Monday Night Raw or Smackdown since December of 2012, when he pinned David Otunga on Raw.
July 5, 2014
AJ Lee
With AJ Lee finally making her return to WWE, the competition in the divas division just got a bit tougher. Someone is going to be losing television time. Naomi Knight and Cameron appear to be safe, as they have a heel turn story line in progress. Summer Rae and Layla El appear to have their weekly television spots secured for the time being. Paige is going to be working a program against AJ, so she should be fine. The belief is that Alicia Fox will be the one demoted, even though her character was gaining a little bit of momentum over the last couple of weeks.
July 5, 2014
Dolph Ziggler
Last week, Miz made his long rumored return to Monday Night Raw. However, he came back to WWE alone. Ric Flair was not by his side as expected. The legendary performer is still expected to make his television return soon, but it looks like he might not be paired up with Miz after all. Flair had petitioned the company to work with Dolph Ziggler, but WWE went in a different direction by pairing him up with Summer Rae instead.
July 5, 2014
Theodore Long
While there are some minor rumors about him potentially joining TNA or Global Force Wrestling, the widespread belief is that Theodore Long is more than likely going to retire now that he no longer works for WWE. He's already at a pretty advanced age, and his name value is not quite what it used to be since he was kept off of television for so long.
July 5, 2014
Curt Hawkins
As some of you already know, former WWE and TNA star Luke Gallows recently got married. CM Punk, AJ Lee, Zack Ryder, Curt Hawkins, Mike Knox, Bully Ray, Angelina Love, Samoa Joe, Mickie James, Matt Hardy, Reby Sky, Velvet Sky and Colt Cabana were among those in attendance at the wedding.

Now, the news is official. Terry will be working underneath a mask as a member of the stable featuring Mike Knox and Rebel.

Mike Knox

Vignettes have been aired on the past couple episodes of Impact Wrestling to tease the return. Knox will be leading a stable consisting of his sister Rebel, Crazzy Steve and a guy named the Freak.

Mike Knox
While he was expected to be a casualty of the cost cutting movement within the company, it appears that Mike Knox is still under contract to TNA. He has not been used on Impact Wrestling in quite some time now, and he also has not been booked for the various live events every weekend either. Knox is still on the official roster page as well.

Mike Knox

Mike Knox could be the next person headed out the door in TNA. While the company likes him, they simply do not have anything planned for him since the split of Aces and Eights. There is a possibility of him being brought back into the fold at a later time.
