"I think I'm still trying to figure out the reasons between Natalya Neidhart and I. It's something we're both trying to iron out and to be very honest with you, I kind of don't get it. As strong, beautiful, powerful women like the WWE Divas are, we should always support each other and always uplift each other."
- Summer Rae discussing backstage heat within Total Divas
Travel isn't an easy thing. Since America Airlines lost their luggage, Natalya Neidhart and Tyson Kidd have no clothes to wear, so the WWE couple has no choice but to wear their ring gear in the hotel room. Natalya posted the hilarious picture on Twitter.
Natalya Neidhart and Tyson Kidd are in New York City today, and the WWE couple is doing some filming for the upcoming season of Total Divas. She teased the fans about the segment on her Twitter account, but she did not reveal much details about it.
"I want people to come away seeing that Nattie is not a supermodel and she's not a twig. She's got curves, and you know what? She has earned those curves. People need to be proud of what they have. There's nothing more sexy than confidence. If you own whatever it is that you have and embrace it, there's nobody that can touch you."

It wasn't long after the official announcement of Jake Roberts being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame at Wrestlemania 30 that rumors surfaced who about who will be tasked with inducting the legendary performer. The first and most obvious name to spring up was Diamond Dallas Page, who helped Roberts turn his life around.
Expect to see a push for Summer Rae later on this year, as E! has now revealed that the blonde bombshell will be joining the cast of Total Divas during the second season. A preview was shown during their coverage of the Grammy awards, and Summer is seen slapping Natalya Neidhart.
"It's a lot of DDP Yoga and gym work and eating right and staying in shape. My mind has also been right for the last five-and-a-half years being clean and sober from drugs and alcohol. So I think all those things played a big factor in this. Being able to do stuff that I've never done and wanting to try new things and having the young talent that's actually hungry and help me get through that and make it look good. I've got some new moves in my arsenal, and the people love it. This new attitude and new Goldust they've never seen with new face paint. I couldn't have asked for anything. This run has been great."

"Nope, nope, nope. I hope it's never offered to me. He's the man right now, that man being Randy Orton. I love to watch him wrestle. Randy and I have been tight since he was 22. If this was 10 years ago, it would make sense. But I'm 57. I don't want it offered to me because I'll do it. I'm 57, I want to stay strong and healthy."
- Diamond Dallas Page on WWE return
Kharma has been focusing much more on her health than she has at any point during her professional wrestling career, as the former TNA knockout is now doing the yoga program created by Diamond Dallas Page. She has lost a considerable amount of weight since leaving WWE.
While WWE has been paying tribute to Mae Young, who died earlier in the week, at live events by showing a special video, Natalya Neidhart has decided to take it one step further, by dedicating her victories over AJ Lee at the live events to the hall of fame performer.
"Well I got to say first of all; no one and I repeat no one puts anything on Vince McMahon's TV without his okay. And I've had people say to me so what do you think about Vince McMahon trying to ruin your career with the whole stalker thing, blah, blah, blah. Over the years, right? Anything that anyone thought cause I made a lot of those decisions myself and they were stupid decisions by me. Anyone who ever thinks that there has ever been anything between Vince and me or whatever and I've always told everyone; no, there's not. What Vince did for me two Monday's ago with DDP Yoga was--he couldn't have given me a better angle. He couldn't have given me a better spot. He let me go on there for a minute and a half. It was written into the copy! They gave it to me. I didn't pick up the DVD's and do that. That was written for me. "Wear your shirt." Hunter told me do the foot over the head, that always blows people away. You know I was like okay! I expected to be in something but I didn't expect it to be what it was. And to have Booker T involved too, who is one of my good buddies. Cause he's the one guy from WCW who really got over. He's a five time World Champion and he got the strap there. So bottom line is to be able to do it with him and then have Ron (Simmons) come out; it was just--we did so many takes of it, every one was funnier than the next. I had liked the last one the best but there were other ones that were laugh your ass off funny. And we just had a blast. And Ron said (DDP imitating his voice), "Man, Diamond they're really working you today. This one's gonna be a shameless plug but you working for that s**t today…DAMN."
"Well I think in Randy's case, I think Randy he was pissed. I don't think he really wanted to go in. That's just my observation from a far. I never heard that from Randy but I'm sure now that the great Randy Savage has passed on, at some point he will be put in there. But I think there was--you have to accept. You have to go there and show up. And there was some heat there. And I think it was just about to get fixed too, just like the Warrior had a lot of heat there. I think he absolutely would've gone in. Maybe this year cause Randy was just coming out--when he died, Randy was just starting to come out. About to do a comic-con and stuff; do some autograph signings and stuff. So I think you would have seen him in there. Right after; not too long after his death, I don't think it had to happen right away but I would imagine that Randy will be in there. And I believe that Jake Roberts will get in. I think I'll get in. I think there will be a lot of guys that will get in there from Kevin Nash, Scott Hall. I think a lot of those guys will get in. Sometimes it just takes time and I think that Jake doing his turn around that he's done over these last 16-17 months--or 16 months I think it is--people are buzzing everywhere about Jake. So I think at some point, it would be awesome if it was this year but who knows? You never know."
"Are you kidding me? Abso-f**king-lutely. I mean you have to look at how guys drew. And there are fans that don't like the Warrior. There are plenty of fans that don't like Diamond Dallas Page. I get that. And the people who don't like him, really don't like him. But the people who love the Warrior; they f**king love the Warrior. And that was really obvious when we did in New Jersey, New York, Philadelphia--they can be the most critical fans on the planet. Me and Jake Roberts we smoked through autographs while we were there for those couple of days, but Warrior and Hogan came in and were doing the 100 to 150 dollar autograph thing and that line went out the door all day long. So you say what you want about Warrior, but the cat is true. He brought his energy. He brought a dynamic to wrestling at that time that was original. And I wasn't a big fan of his interviews but people fricking loved them! People loved that guy. I was a Jake Roberts guy back in the '80's, so I skate more that way."
"Bischoff was a genius. He could be an asshole at times. I had an amazing relationship with him. We don't even talk today, which is so f---ed up to me, and it's his fault, because he sucks on the phone. We don't even have a relationship anything like we had, but at the time, it was a real relationship... (Now) he doesn't even return a phone call, which is so obnoxious."
Jake Roberts revealed that he was hiding in a bus for most of the night to prevent anyone from knowing that he was going to be making his return on Monday Night Raw. Roberts also made sure to not tell anyone but Diamond Dallas Page about his return.
It looks like Emma has now emerged as a strong candidate to be the next NXT developmental diva to be called up to the main roster by WWE. She worked the live event tour this week. Emma teamed with Natalya to defeat AJ Lee and Tamina Snuka.
In order to generate more interest in her first music video, Naomi has enlisted the help of fellow WWE stars. Her fiancee Jimmy Uso and diva Natalya Neidhart have signed on to make appearances in the video.
One of the ideas being tossed around in WWE right now is to have Tyson Kidd turning into a heel. Management wanted to capitalize on his real life relationship with Natalya Neidhart, but thus far, they have not been able to come up with a suitable story line.
"My travel day from hell was on an International Tour when we got stuck over in Europe. We were heading to Switzerland but we couldn't get out because there was a volcano. There was ash in the air and they wouldn't let planes fly out of most of Europe. We got stuck there for a week. We couldn't do anything until the ash cleared. Every airport, practically, in Europe was shut down. So we had to stay there and just hang out for a week. And we nearly missed Monday Night Raw, which is unheard of. They were saying that the ash wouldn't clear and it could take up to a month to clear. When we finally, finally, finally made it home, I literally kissed the ground of the JFK airport."

"Bret doesn't like reality TV normally and he didn't used to be a fan of women's wrestling. When the Hitman tells you it's cool, you know it's cool."

"I created that whole gimmick. The black hair, the brushed back cut, five o'clock shadow, all mine, and he'll be the first to tell you. took him from a blond, brownish hair with a big mustache and turned him into what would become best known as Razor Ramon, but it was the Diamond Studd before it was Razor Ramon."
Diamond Dallas Page is down in Mexico right now to help his girlfriend, Brenda, start her battle against breast cancer.
