Vince McMahon
WWE has issued a statement touting the fact that a record number of households watched Wrestlemania 30 this year. That total comes from both the WWE Network and traditional pay per view buys. One of the reasons why Vince McMahon wanted to launch the online service was to draw in more people for the pay per view with the lower monthly pricing.

Vince McMahon
While some investors have given up hope on WWE, Vince McMahon and company still manages to break records. Wrestlemania 30 broke the record for the highest grossing entertainment event held at the Superdome. WWE pulled in $10.9 million from the gate. The press statement also touted that the company managed to sell out 75,167 tickets for Wrestlemania.

Junkyard Dog
For more than three decades, the record at the Superdome for a wrestling event was set by a show featuring Michael Hayes and Junkyard Dog in the main event. The two of them drew in 28,000 fans, which is a mark that WWE should easily blow away with Wrestlemania 30. As many already know, Hayes works backstage for the company and will be at the pay per view.

Randy Orton
It should be noted that Randy Orton has never won an Elimination Chamber match in his career. He has been involved in five of them, and WWE has made it a point to emphasize his horrible record, which means that he has a great chance of walking out victoriously at Elimination Chamber 2014 with the heavyweight championship.

Nunzio
World Premier Wrestling is doing a huge independent wrestling show this weekend in New York City. The company has booked Jimmy Snuka, Crimson, Matt Striker, Nunzio, Matt Morgan, Roddy Piper, Angelina Love and Mickie James. The belief is that there will be some sort of segment involving Piper and Snuka during the evening.

Diamond Dallas Page
"David Arquette is his own animal. As much heat as he ever took, for him, all the money he made for that pay per view when he busted me over the head with the guitar and Jeff Jarrett took the world title, the money he made, he gave to Melanie Pillman. When he pinned Eric Bischoff, not me, and I will go on record as saying that was the biggest clusterfuck ever, and it never should have happened, but it did. That being said, that was the booking committee. It was not Arquette, and every fan that has ever roasted him, should dip their own ass in boiling oil because everyone of you that has buried Arquette, if put in the same position, you would have jumped through a hoop of burning oil to do the same shit. That's why when everyone busts his balls on that, I just want to smack someone. I'm like, "really, you, Marko Mark? You would have died for that." - Diamond Dallas Page defending David Arquette for winning a championship

Roman Reigns
When a professional wrestler becomes popular, often times fans will try to get to know as much about the performer as possible. A lot of fans lately have been discovering that Roman Reigns has a public intoxication arrest on his record. However, it happened a long time ago, so WWE does not consider that a big of a deal. His push is not in jeopardy.

Eric Bischoff
"For the record, I am not making any personal appearances at any events. Someone is spreading some bullshit suggesting that I am. Save your money. I don't know who started this nonsense, but I have not had a conversation with anyone about any appearances." - Eric Bischoff warning fans
March 6, 2014
Sean Waltman
"For the record, I had no issues with Virginia commission, in regards to my no show. I never received my airline tickets. Also, for the record, the Virginia promoter did everything he could as well. I'll just have to come make it up to everyone as soon as possible." - Sean Waltman explains no show

Batista

"For the record, Batista's a sweet guy with an incredible story of perseverance and hard work. He's one of the good guys."

Through Twitter, Tammy Sytch has revealed that her health has been failing and that she has been in and out of the hospital for a couple of weeks now. As is typical with the former WWE diva, there is a lot of skepticism over the validity of her claims.

April 24, 2014
Jim Ross
A fan on Twitter recently asked about the possibility of Jim Ross interviewing Vince McMahon on his podcast since the long time WWE commentator has been doing so with some of the biggest names in the professional wrestling industry. However, Ross stated that it was highly unlikely that it would ever happen, adding further fuel to the speculations that there is some lingering backstage heat between the two.
April 24, 2014
Austin Aries
A promoter out in Phoenix is putting together a pretty big show called Desert Storm on May 18. Performers being advertised for the event include Chris Sabin, Matt Hardy, Austin Aries, Shelton Benjamin, Shane Helms, Trent Baretta and Lance Hoyt. In terms of the independent wrestling circuit, that is an extremely stacked card, so it will be interesting to see if the promoters can pull this off.
April 23, 2014
Daniel Bryan
In order to build up further heat for the feud, Stephanie McMahon will be doing a segment on the next episode of Monday Night Raw, where she will be apologizing to Daniel Bryan for the assault by Kane. WWE might need to figure out ways to build the story line while Bryan takes time away from television to cope with the sudden death of his father.
April 23, 2014
Kevin Nash
It appears that the backstage heat between Kevin Nash and Roddy Piper, which erupted one night on Twitter, is over for the time being. The former WCW stars talked over the phone and hashed out their issues. While neither side is accepting full blame, they both have come to the conclusion that it is best to just move on from this.

April 23, 2014
Eric Bischoff
A fan on Twitter asked Eric Bischoff if he would be interested in making a return to WWE, and the former on screen general manager replied that he has not closed the door on that possibility. While the company does not currently have any plans on bringing Bischoff back, the belief is that people within WWE have not closed the door on their side, either.
April 23, 2014
Daniel Bryan
While he recently took some time off, WWE has allowed Daniel Bryan to spend further time away from the ring. The world heavyweight champion lost his father to a sudden death this week, and the company is allowing him the time needed to grieve. Bryan has been removed from the live events scheduled for this upcoming weekend, and there are rumors that he might miss Monday Night Raw as well.
April 23, 2014
Adam Rose
Ever since the company decided to promote his impending arrival on Monday Night Raw, WWE fans have been noticing a tour bus traveling through various cities with Adam Rose splashed all over the side. The vehicle is actually the one used by the WWE crew and not Rose himself. Only top level guys in the company are afforded such luxuries.
April 23, 2014
Mick Foley
Through Facebook, Mick Foley revealed to fans the reason why he is not signing a new contract with WWE. He feels that the company has not been paying out a fair amount of royalties for the previous two video games. In fact, Foley states that it is probably just a fourth of what the WWE stars should be receiving. Thus, he has decided to move on.
April 23, 2014
Cody Rhodes
Despite working a segment that is building towards a feud for the tag team championship, Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso were removed from the Hulu version of Monday Night Raw this week. The brother tandem defeated Cody Rhodes and Goldust before setting up their program with Curtis Axel and Ryback. WWE still intends to continue the story line.
April 23, 2014
Alexander Rusev
Even though the company is hoping to push him as a huge star, WWE has been frequently removing Alexander Rusev from the Hulu version of Monday Night Raw. He has been utilized in squash matches over the last couple of weeks, and WWE does not deem that to be interesting enough to fans who watch the shortened version of Raw.
April 23, 2014
Curtis Axel
For fans who take interest in the traveling schedules of professional wrestlers, it has been revealed that Heath Slater is now traveling with Curtis Axel in between live events. Many were under the assumption that Slater was traveling with Jinder Mahal and Drew McIntyre, while Axel was believed to have been on the road with Ryback.
April 23, 2014
Hulk Hogan
While he has already been booked for the European tour next month, Hulk Hogan has been angling for more involvement with WWE. The company was originally going to use him sparingly after Wrestlemania 30. The belief is that WWE might hold out on using Hogan again until Summerslam 2014, so that his appearances would feel more special.
April 22, 2014
Charles Robinson
Earlier this week, it was revealed that Charles Robinson had suffered a gruesome injury while working with the ring crew at a WWE live event in Saudi Arabia. The longtime referee nearly lost his thumb, but fortunately, the company doctor was able to save it. The story was actually big enough for TMZ to pick up. The mainstream gossip website even posted some graphic images of the thumb.
April 22, 2014
Aksana
Even though she has not been featured all that frequently, Aksana has been booked for the upcoming tour of Europe. The company views her as a bit of a draw in that part of the world. The belief is that WWE will have her teaming up with Alicia Fox to take on Nikki Bella and Brie Bella at those shows. The Total Divas stars will likely go over in these bouts.
