Mr Anderson
There are some talks backstage that Christy Hemme could be doing a heel turn and aligning with Sam Shaw at TNA Lockdown 2014 during his match against Mr Anderson. That would provide a bit of a shock factor to the story. However, there are also a lot of people pushing against that, as they feel that Shaw can be used to terrorize the other Knockouts as well.

Steve Austin
Earlier in the month, Steve Austin made a comment about WWE being too scripted for his taste. While those comments would surely bring backstage heat on one of their mid card performers, it is being said that there is absolutely no heat towards Austin, as management knows that they might need him for business down the line.

Damien Sandow
Since he has shown a willingness to not only do what is asked of him but to actually put in great effort in doing so, Damien Sandow has been earning a good amount of praise backstage by his peers in WWE. They are impressed by the fact that he has not grown frustrated with the new gimmick. Unfortunately for Sandow, though, management does not feel that he deserves a real push at the moment.
July 28, 2014
Miz
There are still plans being discussed backstage in WWE to unify the United States Heavyweight Championship and the Intercontinental Championship in the near future. If management decides to go through with it, then Miz is the more likely candidate to hold the unified belt because he has a lot more momentum than Sheamus at this point in time.
July 28, 2014
Goldberg
It looks like the longstanding real life backstage heat between Goldberg and Scott Hall has now ended. The disdain between the two sides started when both were working in WCW. Goldberg has publicly stated that Hall was unprofessional and careless in the ring. The two of them were spotted together at a wrestling convention in Arizona recently, and they appeared to be cordial with one another.
July 28, 2014
Justin Gabriel
While he is a reliable performer who does not cause trouble backstage, Justin Gabriel was one of the candidates to be on the receiving end of a release from WWE when the company was doing budget cuts. He apparently has survived the cuts and will remain with the company for the time being. It is interesting to note that Gabriel has not been utilized on Monday Night Raw since last September.
July 27, 2014
Tensai
With his in ring career fully behind him now, Tensai has been slowly gaining power backstage in WWE. He impressed management with his ability to function as a color commentator. Now, he has convinced them to let him have a bigger part in the company by training the developmental wrestlers. WWE likes the fact that Tensai has worked overseas and is familiar with a lot of different styles of wrestling.
July 26, 2014
Big E Langston
There are those backstage in WWE that are skeptical of the idea of doing a heel turn for Kofi Kingston, who has long been regarded as the ultimate baby face. Since he does a lot of the charity work for the company, some are afraid that it will affect that aspect of his job as well. There are rumors floating around that WWE does not have finalized plans for the new stable that also consists of Xavier Woods and Big E Langston.
July 26, 2014
Josh Mathews
Josh Mathews might not be out of a job for too long. Rumors are floating around that TNA is very close to signing him to a contract. When he was backstage at Impact Wrestling, he did not seem like a typical visitor, as management was introducing him to people backstage. The belief is that he would be a valuable asset since he understands a lot about the production in WWE.
July 25, 2014
Brock Lesnar
During a recent podcast interview with Jim Ross, Kurt Angle confirmed the longstanding rumors that he and Brock Lesnar got into a backstage fight when both were with WWE. Angle stated that he initiated the brawl with Lesnar because Lesnar was telling the other wrestlers that Angle was too small for him to wrestle. The incident was more of an amateur wrestling match than a fist fight.
July 24, 2014
John Cena
A lot of people backstage in WWE have been joking around lately about John Cena possibly being the next guy to leave the company to pursue a career in Hollywood. He's got a couple of parts coming up that might help him gain the attention of the studios. There are also talks that Cena is a lot more injured than he lets on, so an acting career might seem like a better option nowadays.
July 23, 2014
Brie Bella
One of the ideas being floated around backstage in WWE is to turn Nikki Bella into a heel. The story would be that Stephanie McMahon finally gets to her by getting Nikki to believe that Brie Bella has left her hanging. Nikki would grow tired of being abused by the Authority, so she ends up doing a heel turn against her sister. The story would more than likely be featured on Total Divas as well.
July 22, 2014
Bray Wyatt
As late as Saturday, management had plans in place for Bray Wyatt to beat Chris Jericho at WWE Battleground 2014. However, Vince McMahon called an audible and had Jericho winning the match. No word yet on why McMahon made this decision, but it is being said that a lot of people backstage were against the idea because Wyatt had already started losing momentum with the audience.
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
Ricky Steamboat
Something must have changed drastically backstage in WWE, as Ricky Steamboat appears to be back with the company. The legendary performer had to inform promoters that he would no longer be able to make appearances unless they contacted WWE to get approval. Steamboat booked himself on a lot of independent wrestling shows after being released from the company.
July 21, 2014
Sting
Fans weren't the only ones excited this week when it was announced that Sting was going to be on the upcoming WWE 2K15 video game. The performers backstage were excited as well, as many of them grew up watching Sting during his prime. It's still uncertain as to the extent of the deal that he signed with WWE, but wrestlers are simply excited to have him involved in any shape or form.
July 16, 2014
Bray Wyatt
When Bray Wyatt was accidentally busted open by some errant punches from Ric Flair at a WWE live event in Madison Square Garden this past weekend, he took it extremely well.

Since he did not get upset about the incident, people backstage are praising Wyatt for his attitude.
July 16, 2014
Dean Ambrose
During the main event of Monday Night Raw this week, it appeared that Seth Rollins injured his knee during an interaction with Roman Reigns. Rumors are floating around now that he is actually fine and was just selling the move. However, there are reports that WWE is simply downplaying things, so that fans will continue to be hyped for his upcoming match against Dean Ambrose. Fans in attendance noted that the referee did indeed signal the medical crew backstage when the incident happened.
July 15, 2014
Jim Cornette
Anyone that has heard Jim Cornette speak over the last decade should already know that he absolutely hates Vince Russo. The former WWE manager routinely sways regular conversations into diatribes against Russo. Through Twitter, Russo offered to make pace with Cornette. As expected, though, Cornette wants nothing to do with that. He refuses to end the backstage heat between the two.
July 14, 2014
CM Punk
Showing that some friendships extend beyond the business, Undertaker and his wife Michelle McCool recently attended a comedy show featuring Mick Foley. The longtime WWE couple wanted to show support for their old friend. The two of them even went backstage to catch up with Foley for a bit. Several wrestlers in the industry, including CM Punk recently, have made the effort to go watch Foley tell jokes.
July 14, 2014
JTG
While morale is really low backstage due to the recent and severe drop in royalty checks, WWE performers are not speaking out on the matter because they are afraid of Vince McMahon. Many saw what happened to JTG when he voiced his opinion about low pay per view bonus checks. The former Cryme Tyme member was buried for more than a year and recently was given a release form his contract.
July 14, 2014
Mr Anderson

Finlay was also revealed as another person that pushed for WWE to sign Hornswoggle.
June 8, 2014
Samoa Joe
In approximately two years, TNA has reduced the amount of contracted performers by nearly half, going from 60 to 33 during that stretch of time. Dixie Carter and company have been forced to allow performers to leave whenever their contracts expire because they need to become fiscally responsible if they wish to remain in business. Rumor has it that only Kurt Angle, Jeff Hardy, Bully Ray, Samoa Joe, Abyss, James Storm, Bobby Roode and Mr Anderson have big salaries.
May 15, 2014
Sam Shaw
In a TNA Sacrifice 2014 match where the loser would be sent to the mental ward, Mr Anderson was able to defeat Sam Shaw by delivering the Mic Check finishing move onto the back of the van and tossing his opponent into the vehicle.

Mr Anderson
"That was actually my idea. I said in passing one day, 'What about me dressing up as old Sting?' I mean, I had the blonde hair. And Sting actually loved it. Those outfits that I wore were actually Sting's old gear. And he painted my face. A cool moment. Looking back on that, I would have to slide him into that group of most significant opponents that I've had." - Mr Anderson talks about working with Sting

March 9, 2014
Sam Shaw
Since management is planning to give him a nice push, Sam Shaw is expected to go over Mr Anderson at the TNA Lockdown 2014 pay per view.

Plus, Anderson is coming off of a big win against Bully Ray in their feud, so he will not be losing too much heat by putting someone else over.

February 28, 2014
Joseph Park
Since TNA decided to shift Mr Anderson into a program with Sam Shaw, there is now a need to find an opponent for Bully Ray.
