MVP
Sometimes, you watch the news and find a cause that makes you want to stand up. The entire country is in an uproar after police officers shot and killed a teenager named Michael Brown. A big protest was started, and TNA star MVP flew into the state to take part in it. He stated that this was a last minute decision because sometimes "shaking your fist at the television is not enough."
August 14, 2014
MVP
With a lot of fans going on social media and proclaiming the death of his company, MVP has become quite vocal in defense of TNA. The former United States Heavyweight Champion has been telling people that the company will continue to churn through. He is under the belief that a new television deal will be worked out before the end of the year.
August 1, 2014
MVP
After being given some time off of television, where his character was serving a story line suspension, Bobby Roode made his much anticipated return to Impact Wrestling this week. The former TNA champion came back to save Eric Young, who had just lost the world title, from an attack by MVP, Kenny King and Bobby Lashley. Roode received a warm reception from the audience.
June 19, 2014
MVP
The big draw on Impact Wrestling this week is the return of Dixie Carter to television. TNA has been working a story line where she has been in hiding since losing control of the company to MVP at TNA Lockdown 2014. No official word has been given on what her character will do on Impact Wrestling, but the belief is that Carter will be going after MVP again.
April 10, 2014
MVP
While a lot of people already knew that the return was happening, MVP, who is acting as an investor in the company, announced that Jeff Hardy would be coming back to television TNA Lockdown 2014. The popular wrestler was given some time off because he was not able to join the rest of the crew on the European tour in January.
February 11, 2014
ODB
In regards to the release of ODB from TNA, reports are surfacing that the two sides are leaving on good terms. She was not released because of backstage heat or anything. In fact, her contract had expired, and management opted not to renew her deal at this time. The belief is that the two sides could come to an agreement down the line, but nothing is expected to happen until TNA can secure a new television deal.
August 29, 2014
Big E Langston
A lot of fans are under the assumption that the stable consisting of Xavier Woods, Kofi Kingston and Big E Langston has been disbanded. It's hard to blame them for thinking that because WWE has removed them from television over the last couple of weeks. However, rumors are floating around that the trio has been informed by management that there are still plans in place for them to work as a group in the future. The creative department simply has not figured out a good way of using them.
August 27, 2014
Zack Ryder
There might be some backstage heat towards Zack Ryder. After working the live events this week for the company, he noted that he was flying back to New York. He also stated that he was not sick, which has led many fans to believe that this involves some sort of disciplinarian issues. WWE usually flies in performers for Monday Night Raw and Smackdown, even if they're not being utilized on television.
August 25, 2014
Bully Ray
Reports have surfaced that the contract between Bully Ray and TNA has now officially expired. The two sides had been trying to negotiate a new deal, but financial terms could not be met. The former world heavyweight champion is still listed on the official roster page on the TNA website. The belief is that the company might wait until a new television deal has been signed before renegotiating with some of the bigger stars.
August 25, 2014
Rey Mysterio
While it appears that he is still under contract to WWE, it does not seem like the company is going to be bringing Rey Mysterio back to television, even after his hand injury heals. The two sides are greatly at odds right now, and it seems like management is more concerned about preventing him from going to another company at this point. A reconciliation seems unlikely right now.
August 24, 2014
Dixie Carter
Some interesting rumors have popped up about TNA and their attempt to get a new television contract for Impact Wrestling. It appears that Dixie Carter is not panicking because the company has another network lined up. It is being said that it is not a major one, but it should enable TNA to remain available nationally, which is something that the company desperately needs.
August 24, 2014
Big E Langston
There might be some good news for those of you that were excited about the new stable of Xavier Woods, Kofi Kingston and Big E Langston. Management had apparently decided to split up the group because they were taken off of television, but at a recent live event, the stable was utilized once again. WWE could be testing out the audience to see if the trio can be worth saving.
August 23, 2014
Rosa Mendes
There are speculations right now that Rosa Mendes could be on the receiving end of a push from WWE. She recently stated in an interview that she has never won a singles match via pin fall on television before. The belief is that she is planting the seeds for an underdog story line. Rosa chasing the championship could be a focal point on Total Divas.
August 23, 2014
Bully Ray
A lot of eyes are on the contract negotiations between Bully Ray and TNA at the moment. Many are curious to see if the company will actually let another top level performer walk away. Reports have surfaced that one of the things holding up the deal is the fact that management wants to wait until a new television deal can be reached. TNA is willing to sign the lower level performers right now since the deals are not as expensive.
August 22, 2014
Alexander Rusev
There are rumors floating around right now that Zeb Colter is going to be dropped from television and removed as the manager of Jack Swagger. Many are assuming that since WWE kept him off of Monday Night Raw and Smackdown. Colter is said to be making a return soon and is only selling the kick from Alexander Rusev. Management still views him as an asset.
August 22, 2014
Brock Lesnar
It will be interesting to see how WWE handles the promotion of the world heavyweight championship over the next few weeks. Brock Lesnar is not scheduled to be back on television for approximately a month. John Cena, who is returning next week, is expected to get his rematch story line. Paul Heyman is great at what he does, but management will be curious to see how the audience reacts to a missing champion.
August 19, 2014
Dean Ambrose
For those wondering about the final segment of Monday Night Raw this week, it was designed to write Dean Ambrose off of television. There were speculations that he was going to need time off to film a movie for WWE Studios, but the initial belief was that he would not need to miss television time. It now appears that the company is just going to take him off the road, so he can focus on filming.
August 19, 2014
Bully Ray
In a sign of how much power he has gained backstage, Bully Ray was recently put in charge of a talent meeting to explain to the performers that TNA was still going to remain in business. The former world heavyweight champion has been given access to details of the negotiations that the company has undertaken with the various television networks.
August 17, 2014
Dixie Carter
As the company still works on negotiating a new television contract with Spike TV, Dixie Carter is actually moving forward with plans for the company to go back on the road. She is currently working with a marketing firm to come up with a profitable plan on doing live events again. TNA had struggled to fill arenas over the last year, so it is a smart move for Carter to seek outside help in this area.
August 16, 2014
Bo Dallas
Rumors have surfaced that Vince McMahon and company have given up on Bo Dallas. They do not view him as someone that will be a major asset to WWE. With his push being derailed on television, these rumors appear to lean closer to fact than fiction. Dallas had his push taken away almost immediately the last time he was on the main roster, so there are those that believe that this might be his final chance.
August 15, 2014
Jeff Jarrett
There is a growing sense of optimism towards Jeff Jarrett and Global Force Wrestling. Some feel that he might have found a formula that can draw in a good amount of viewers. The belief is that GFW will showcase wrestling matches from around the world. Jarrett might even bring in international performers from time to time to showcase them on the television show that he is trying to put together.
August 11, 2014
Dixie Carter
While a lot of fans have been trying to calculate when the final episode of Impact Wrestling is going to be, it is said that TNA management has not openly discussed that possibility at the moment. Dixie Carter is carrying on like the company is going to get another television deal, even if it is not with Spike TV. Officials do not want to make the performers paranoid by making them think otherwise.
August 9, 2014
Bully Ray
For those of you that are not aware, the segment on Impact Wrestling where Dixie Carter was slammed through a table by Bully Ray was designed to write her out of the story line. She has long wanted to be removed from television. TNA came up with a pretty clever way of generating publicity and giving the fans the feel good moment that they have been yearning for.
August 8, 2014
Kane
After 17 years of portraying the character, Kane might be receiving a new gimmick soon. Rumors have been floating around that he might be bringing the Jacob Goodnight character from the See No Evil movie series to WWE television. The belief is that management wanted to make it easier to promote the film. Some feel that the story line started when Kane handed over his mask to Stephanie McMahon on the last episode of Monday Night Raw.
August 7, 2014
Hulk Hogan
The white and black is headed back to WWE next week when Monday Night Raw comes to us live from Portland. Hulk Hogan will be celebrating his birthday on air, and he has a couple of buddies coming back to join him. Scott Hall and Kevin Nash have reportedly been confirmed for the event, and the belief is that WWE will be doing some sort of nWo reunion to boost television ratings.
August 6, 2014
MVP
Last month, rumors were finally squashed about WWE bringing back the Nation of Domination stable with R Truth, Xavier Woods, Kofi Kingston and Big E Langston. Speculations have started back up again now that WWE has formed an on screen alliance between Kingston and Langston. Management reportedly canceled the plans previously because they did not want to make it seem like they were copying TNA, which recently launched a stable with MVP, Kenny King and Bobby Lashley.
July 8, 2014
MVP
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
MVP
There were rumors a couple of weeks ago that WWE was going to bring back the Nation of Domination stable as a vehicle for Big E Langston, Kofi Kingston, Xavier Woods and R Truth to have something to do. However, it now appears that management has opted against that. Some believe that WWE does not want to make it seem like they're copying TNA, which recently introduced a stable with MVP, Kenny King and Bobby Lashley.
June 2, 2014
MVP
While the majority of the pay per view has already been announced, there are rumors backstage that an eight match could be added. Davey Richards and Eddie Edward are expected to be given a spot on the show, and their opponents could be Zema Ion, Robbie E and Jessie Godderz. There are also talks that MVP could be added if TNA doesn't want to do a handicap tag team match.
April 21, 2014
MVP
Rumors are floating around right now that Low Ki could be making his return to TNA in the near future. The former X Division Champion contemplated retirement not too long ago, but he had a change of heart apparently. Low Ki has a close relationship with Samoa Joe and MVP, so that have played a part in his potential return to TNA.
April 13, 2014
MVP
While he has now made a commitment to TNA, it is being rumored that the deal between Dixie Carter and MVP is flexible enough to enable the former WWE star to do tours of Japan on occasions. While he has nothing officially scheduled overseas right now, MVP wanted to maintain that bit of freedom that Triple H and Vince McMahon would not give him.
March 16, 2014
MVP
There are speculations going around right now that TNA could be bringing in the Bullet Club, a popular stable in New Japan consisting of Karl Anderson, Luke Gallows, Prince Devitt and a couple of other guys, into the company sometimes in 2014. They're gaining steam right now in the industry, and they do have a connection with MVP.
February 8, 2014
MVP
It appears that a contract between Dixie Carter and MVP has now been signed. The two sides had been on a handshake agreement when the latter made his TNA debut on Impact Wrestling last week. Both sides definitely wanted to work with one another, so it was just a matter of reaching an agreement on terms.
February 6, 2014
MVP
While the possibility of a return is still there, there has been no negotiations between AJ Styles and Dixie Carter as of late, since the latter has been focused on the European tour and the signings of MVP, Davey Richards and Eddie Edwards over the last few weeks.
February 6, 2014
MVP

There are still talks that MVP could be making his debut for TNA during the upcoming episode of Impact Wrestling, which is being filmed in Scotland. He continues to deny the rumors on Twitter by stating that he has not even had discussions with Dixie Carter, but many believe he is just trying to protect the surprise.

January 25, 2014
Bobby Lashley
TNA has a couple of live events coming up in a few days, and their world heavyweight champion will not be around. Bobby Lashley is going to be missing the one night only pay per view taping and an international television taping because he has to do a fight for Bellator MMA on September 5. His opponent is Josh Burns, who currently has an 8-7 record.
August 28, 2014
Bray Wyatt
WWE has announced a big rematch between John Cena and Bray Wyatt for Monday Night Raw tonight. No word yet on why the match is taking place, as the two of them are not currently feuding with one another. Wyatt is still feuding with Chris Jericho, while Cena is in a program with Brock Lesnar, who once again will not be making a television appearance this week despite being the WWE champion.
August 25, 2014
Alicia Fox
Those that watched Summerslam 2014 saw Nikki Bella doing her much rumored heel turn. She is expected to work in that role on television going forward. However, WWE did something peculiar at a live event in Sacramento over the weekend. Nikki worked as a baby face. She teamed up with Emma to defeat Alicia Fox and Layla El. The face team even attacked Rosa Mendes, who was portraying a heel character. No word yet on why WWE opted to do this.
August 24, 2014
Dixie Carter
As the company continues their negotiations with Spike TV, TNA has signed a new television contract with SuperSport in Africa. The deal is for five years, which means that Dixie Carter and company will maintain a strong presence overseas, even if they are unable to secure another deal with Spike. Many in the industry are under the impression that Impact Wrestling will remain on television in the United States somehow.
August 21, 2014
Dixie Carter
While the widespread assumption is that Spike and TNA have parted ways, the two sides still remain in negotiations on a new television contract. Executives from the network were backstage at the recent taping of Impact Wrestling. There were also representatives from other television networks on hand as well, as they are interested in doing a deal with Dixie Carter.
August 17, 2014
Big E Langston
The speculation right now is that the stable of Xavier Woods, Kofi Kingston and Big E Langston has been disbanded since WWE has not been utilizing them much on television. Those rumors appear to be true as Woods addressed those rumors through his Twitter account. He stated that he is not currently involved in a group. Woods also mentioned that he would much rather use intelligence as a weapon in a stable as opposed to race.
August 15, 2014
Dixie Carter
A really interesting move was just announced by Dixie Carter. Impact Wrestling is moving to Wednesday night, and it is happening immediately after this upcoming episode. August 20th will be the next day that TNA is back on Spike TV. A lot of speculations have arisen because of this move, and some are wondering if this means that a new television contract has been signed.
August 14, 2014
Vince McMahon
Fans in Canada have access to the WWE Network now, but it is not like what their counterparts in the United States are used to. Instead of it being an online service, Vince McMahon made a deal with Rogers that puts his product on television. Fans will have access to the scheduled programming, but they will not be able to browse through the catalog. It is also $11.99 instead of $9.99. In addition to that, Rogers is only available in a portion of the country, so everyone else is left out. That has caused some criticism from fans online.
August 13, 2014
Dixie Carter
There is a lot of pressure on Dixie Carter nowadays because many believe that TNA is going to be closing shop soon. However, the belief is that if she can come through and get a television deal set for Impact Wrestling, then she will have earned the respect of many people backstage in the company and in the industry. A win like that might even help her repair her reputation with online critics.
August 12, 2014
Alberto Del Rio
While there are uncertainty as to whether or not Alberto Del Rio is under the 90 day no compete clause with WWE since he is rumored to be appearing at the big AAA pay per view this weekend, we now know that Ricardo Rodriguez cannot make an appearance for a television promotion. He informed fans via Twitter that he would not be able to make an appearance at TripleMania this upcoming Sunday.
August 12, 2014
Christopher Daniels
Since the company did not give him another contract, many are under the assumption that Christopher Daniels is bitter towards TNA. That apparently is not the case. During a recent interview, the former X division champion stated that he is actually rooting for Dixie Carter to get a new television contract with Spike TV. Daniels stated that he still has a lot of friends in the company, and he does not want to see them lose their place of employment.
August 9, 2014
Dixie Carter
When rumors swirl that a company is going out of business, the employees are left wondering their fate. Dixie Carter knew that she needed to eventually address the roster and let them know about the status of their contract negotiations with Spike TV to remain on television. It is being said that the TNA stars were in a much more upbeat mood after being reassured that progress was being made.
August 7, 2014
Sheamus
After taking a little bit of time off the road and in Europe, Sheamus is now back with WWE. While he was not utilized on Monday Night Raw, he did work a match at the taping for WWE Superstars. The former world heavyweight champion was also kept off of Smackdown as well. Sheamus is currently on the tour of Australia with the rest of the WWE crew and should be back on television soon.
August 7, 2014
Brooke Tessmacher
In an expected move, CBS is banning Robbie E from making appearances on Impact Wrestling when the next season of Amazing Race airs. It's a stipulation that a lot of producers put into the contracts, so that other television shows cannot capitalize on their assets. The belief is that TNA Knockout Brooke Tessmacher, who also will be appearing on the show, will not be allowed on Impact Wrestling, either.
August 6, 2014
Randy Orton
It looks like Randy Orton still has a bit of the acting bug. The WWE star informed his fan through Twitter that he was working on a deal to star in another movie. Orton also revealed that they were in the early stages, so he cannot provide much details at the moment. Once the film starts production, it is expected that the former world heavyweight champion will miss some television time for WWE.
August 6, 2014
Stephanie McMahon
Stephanie McMahon and Triple H have revealed a bit of news about the WWE Network that might help the company secure more subscribers. The real life couple stated that episodes of WCW Nitro are being added to the online service. There is a good amount of people who have been hesitant to sign up for the WWE Network because it lacked the full archive of former television shows.
August 6, 2014
Vince Russo
There are rumors floating around that Spike TV is not renewing their television contract with TNA because they found out that Vince Russo was secretly working for the company. It has now been revealed that John Gaburick had already informed Scott Fishman, an executive at the network, about Russo working as a consultant. It is being said that Fishman was fine with Russo in that role.
August 5, 2014
Dixie Carter
There are those that believe that Eric Bischoff could have been the one to save TNA from their struggles in obtaining a new television contract from Spike TV. Bischoff has a good amount of power with the television networks since he has a couple of shows on the air. He also has a better understanding of wrestling than United Talent Agency, the company currently negotiating on behalf of Dixie Carter, so he would be able to sell the product even better.
August 5, 2014
Bully Ray
TNA is really hoping to spike the ratings for Impact Wrestling this week. The company has already filmed footage of Bully Ray putting Dixie Carter through a table, and they're using that to draw in viewers. The company has even released a public statement, calling August 7th, "National Put Your Boss Through A Table Day". The belief is that TNA is trying to convince Spike to give them a new television deal.
August 4, 2014
Dixie Carter
For a long period of time there, Sean Waltman was quite critical of TNA. His angst was especially aimed at Dixie Carter, which led many to believe that he had some backstage heat with her. Lately, though, Waltman has eased up. He even stated that Spike TV and Impact Wrestling were a great fit for one another. He also mentioned that he hopes a new television contract gets signed between the two sides.
August 3, 2014
MVP
In order to show support, MVP took his own time and money to travel to Ferguson to be part of the protest. While the TNA star was pleased by the show of solidarity in the community, he did note that there were a few people there who were making the situations worse. MVP was more than likely referring to the looters who were taking advantage of the situation.
August 18, 2014
Tommy Dreamer
A post on Twitter from Tommy Dreamer, where he praises MVP for getting involved in the protests in Ferguson, Missouri.
August 16, 2014
Davey Richards
MVP is not the only TNA performer who is involved with the Ferguson protests and riots. It has now been revealed that Davey Richards has been working as a paramedic in the area. The tag team champion sent a message to MVP to be careful as Richards has witnessed a lot of the crazy things that have been going on up there. The protests are said to be much more peaceful as of late.
August 16, 2014
Samoa Joe
Since MVP has a badly injured knee, TNA decided to change up the main event of Slammiversary 2014. Eric Young will still be defending the world heavyweight championship in a steel cage at the event, but he's now going to be doing so against two opponents. The winners of the respective matches between Samoa Joe, Bobby Lashley, Kenny King and Austin Aries will be challenging Young for the belt.
June 13, 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
Bobby Roode
In the storyline, Bobby Roode is serving a suspension from Impact Wrestling because he confronted MVP, who recently turned heel. Apparently, that suspension could be ending soon, as the longtime TNA star is being advertised for Slammiversary 2014 weekend. He does not have a match, but there is a very good chance that he could be making his on screen return that evening.
June 3, 2014
Randy Savage
A picture of Chris Masters sipping coffee in Amsterdam while wearing a neon Randy Savage shirt. The former WWE star revealed that he was hanging out with MVP in Europe at the moment.
June 2, 2014
MVP
While he is currently one of the top stars in the company, don't expect MVP to remain with TNA for the rest of his career. During a recent interview with the Mirror, the former United States Heavyweight Champion confirmed that he wants his wrestling career to end overseas. MVP wants another big run in Japan before he retires from the business.
June 1, 2014
Eric Young
Slammiversary 2014 takes place later on this month, and the main event might be in jeopardy. Originally, Eric Young was scheduled to defend the TNA World Heavyweight Championship against MVP, but the challenger suffered some sort of knee injury while working an independent wrestling show in England over the weekend. No word yet on the severity of the injury, but MVP was limping pretty badly.
June 1, 2014
Bully Ray
In case you did not catch Impact Wrestling this week, Samoa Joe made his return to TNA. He received a bit of a pop as he came back to save Eric Young and Bully Ray from an attack by MVP, Kenny King and Bobby Lashley in the final segment of the show. Upon signing with TNA, MVP specifically mentioned Samoa Joe as a performer that he wanted to work against, so that feud could be happening soon.
May 30, 2014
Al Snow
MVP is taking the weekend off from TNA live events, so that he can travel to England to work a big show over there for PCW. Promoters there have also booked Al Snow, Shane Helms, Low Ki and Chris Masters as well. One of the things that MVP asked for in contract negotiations with TNA is to have some freedom and flexibility to work overseas still.
May 30, 2014
MVP
For story line purposes, MVP has suspended Bobby Roode for his actions on the latest episode of Impact Wrestling, where the former world heavyweight champion confronted MVP about a title shot. Rumor has it that TNA is building up a big match between these two performers for down the line. Prior to joining the company, MVP specifically listed Bobby Roode as someone that he wanted to work with.
May 14, 2014
Eric Young
For those of you that do not watch Impact Wrestling on a regular basis, MVP has done a heel turn. The former United States Heavyweight Champion has also given himself a shot at Eric Young and the TNA World Heavyweight Championship at Slammiversary 2014 as well. Management pulled the trigger on the move, as they feel that MVP could be more valuable as an antagonist.
May 9, 2014
Gunner
Earlier this week, news came out that Kurt Angle had been added as a last minute addition to the live events that TNA is holding this upcoming weekend. Word has now come out that the former world heavyweight champion will be teaming up with MVP to take on Ethan Carter and Brutus Magnus. Angle is replacing James Storm and Gunner, who are doing a show in England.
May 2, 2014
MVP
While millions of people around the world are celebrating Easter on Sunday, MVP jokes that he will be celebrating another special day instead.
April 20, 2014
Austin Aries
A video of a disgruntled Austin Aries confronting MVP on Impact Wrestling. The two of them will face one another in a match next week.
April 20, 2014
MVP
For the longest time there, MVP was the longest reigning WWE United States Heavyweight Champion, but that mark looks to be broken soon if Dean Ambrose can hold on to the belt a little while longer. The Shield member rarely defends the belt, but WWE could opt to include it in the story line against Triple H, Randy Orton and Batista.
April 18, 2014
Eddie Edwards
A message from Davey Richards on Twitter, where he asks MVP to give he and Eddie Edwards a match against Zema Ion, Robbie E and Jessie Godderz at TNA Sacrifice 2014.

March 26, 2014
Dixie Carter
A video of the Dixie Carter tribute segment, where Rockstar Spud and Ethan Carter attempt to generate heel heat and sell the fact that MVP has taken over the company in the story lines.
March 17, 2014
Batista
Due to his new found success in Hollywood, Batista is said to be holding all the cards when it comes to his career with WWE. Guardians of the Galaxy did extremely well, so he does not feel the need to return to professional wrestling. Rumors have surfaced that the former world heavyweight champion would only be interested in doing another match if it meant that he would receive a huge pay day at Wrestlemania 31.
August 31, 2014
Vince McMahon
While there are some concerns backstage about going up against the NFL, the move to Thursday for Smackdown is being viewed as a good thing for WWE. Vince McMahon and company been wanting to make the switch for quite some time now, as Friday nights are really difficult to draw because a lot of their targeted demographics is out of the house.
August 30, 2014
Daniel Bryan
Yesterday, it was revealed that WWE had pulled Daniel Bryan from the upcoming European tour in November. The former world heavyweight champion was scheduled to make appearances at the live events on that continent. Reports are now surfacing that management made the decision to pull him from the tour because Bryan has received confirmation from doctors that a second surgery is needed to repair his neck injury.
August 29, 2014
Rey Mysterio
The relationship between WWE and Rey Mysterio might be worse than what a lot of us already thought. Reports have surfaced that the company and the popular masked performer are not communicating with one another nowadays. Many were under the belief that a discussion would be had when Mysterio made a taped appearance at TripleMania for AAA. Apparently, WWE is letting that issue slide for the time being, as lawyers have yet to get involved.
August 28, 2014
Bray Wyatt
Those that watched Monday Night Raw last week saw John Cena being booked dominantly against Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan. It has now been revealed that Vince McMahon was the person behind all of that. Someone backstage had informed McMahon that a lot of WWE fans were mocking Cena for being dominated, so McMahon has decided to build Cena back up again.
August 28, 2014
Davey Richards
Could Davey Richards and Eddie Edwards be gone from TNA as quickly as they came in? That's the speculation going around right now, as it has been revealed that the contract for the Wolves expire at the end of this year. Management does have the option of extending the deal for another year, but a lot of people are skeptical since the company has been letting a lot of people walk over the last couple of months.
August 28, 2014
Ashley Flair
There are rumors floating around that a title change could be taking place in WWE NXT very soon. Bayley might be given the women's title during the middle part of September. Reports are floating around that Ashley Flair is on the verge of being given a promotion to the main roster in about a month, so she would need to drop the belt to someone else in developmental.
August 28, 2014
Curtis Axel
Since Ryback is on the shelf for a couple of weeks, it will be interesting to see what WWE does with Curtis Axel. There were already plans being discussed a couple of weeks ago to split up the tag team, so it should come as no surprise if management opted to use the injury as an excuse to accelerate those plans. WWE no longer believes that Axel is worthy of being a top level guy, but they do believe he can still be a useful member of the roster.
August 27, 2014
Wade Barrett
Patience isn't always a virtue in WWE. Wade Barrett was initially told by doctors that he would not be able to make his return to the ring until December. However, the company has a big tour of Europe in November. Since Barrett is viewed as a bit of a draw on that continent, WWE has started advertising his appearances. The belief is that Barrett will rush back from the injury to work those shows.
August 27, 2014
Big Show
After witnessing Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan being utilized as pawns in the feud between John Cena and Brock Lesnar on Monday Night Raw, a lot of fans voiced their complaints towards WWE. It is now being said that management actually had a different plan that evening for Wyatt. He was supposed to have been booked strong by attacking Big Show and Mark Henry during the closing segment. Instead, WWE changed their minds and decided to put Cena and Lesnar over instead.

Batista
Initially, the belief was that Batista would make a return to WWE after he was done promoting Guardians of the Galaxy. However, reports are now surfacing that he could be completely done with professional wrestling.

Batista could have no choice but to comply since he wants his career in Hollywood to keep growing.

Randy Orton
There is a little bit of a dilemma backstage in WWE right now when it comes to the Roman Reigns push. Management does not want to put the title on him just yet because they feel that it would be more effective to let him do it at Wrestlemania 31. However, he has gone pretty high up the card already, as Randy Orton is near the top of the ladder. Management will have to figure out what to do with him over the next several months.
