Since he is currently on his honeymoon with Brie Bella, Daniel Bryan is not on the list of WWE stars who are heading over to Saudi Arabia this week for a quick tour.

April 16, 2014
Ultimate Warrior
Since there was still a buzz surrounding the professional wrestling industry, many had expected viewership for Monday Night Raw to increase this week because the company was doing a tribute to the Ultimate Warrior, who died last week. WWE was disappointed to learn that fewer people tuned in this week than for the episode after Wrestlemania 30.
April 16, 2014
Batista
Since he was on such a roll, many wondered if Daniel Bryan was actually going to be given time off after his wedding to Brie Bella to enjoy his honeymoon. The WWE champion was not on Monday Night Raw this week, and there are rumors that the Total Divas camera crew were with him on his break. WWE filled in his spot by having Triple H, Batista and Randy Orton reforming Evolution.
April 16, 2014
Sting
In a rather peculiar move, WWE instructed the security personnel at Monday Night Raw to remove any signs that involves Sting. Rumors have spread this week that the legendary performer was close to signing a deal to finally join WWE. The belief is that management wants to ensure that his arrival is a surprise, even though most fans online have already heard about the possibility of his debut.
April 15, 2014
Alexander Rusev
In a rather interesting move, Alexander Rusev has been removed from the Hulu broadcast of Monday Night Raw for the second week in a row. His debut match against Zack Ryder was omitted the previous week. He defeated Xavier Woods this week and assaulted R Truth afterwards. Apparently, WWE did not feel that was important enough to include on the Hulu version.
April 15, 2014
Rob Van Dam
While he is not quite a full time performer for the company, Rob Van Dam has opted to head to Europe with WWE for a tour in May. There will be an episode of Monday Night Raw and Smackdown taped in London during this stretch, so most of the performers in WWE will be on hand for the tour. Rumors have it that RVD will be sticking around for a couple of months like last time.
April 15, 2014
Rey Mysterio
Some potentially interest news coming out of WWE this week is that Rey Mysterio might have actually allowed his contract with the company to expire. The former world heavyweight champion hopped on a plane yesterday afternoon with his family to Hawaii for a little vacation. He was not on Monday Night Raw, and he is not expected at Smackdown.
April 15, 2014
Vickie Guerrero
During Wrestlemania 30, rumors spread that Vickie Guerrero was finishing up her tenure with WWE and moving on to a different chapter in her life. However, it appears that she might have had a change of heart, as the former on screen general manager posted a message on Twitter, stating that she will be on Monday Night Raw and Smackdown this week.
April 12, 2014
Hulk Hogan
It looks like Hulk Hogan is going to be putting in some extra hours with WWE next month, as the legendary former world heavyweight champion has been booked to show up at the Smackdown taping that will be taking place in London. The event is taking place on May 20. Hogan is also expected to work the Monday Night Raw in England as well.
April 12, 2014
Ultimate Warrior
As expected, WWE is turning the next episode of Monday Night Raw into a three hour tribute to the Ultimate Warrior, who died earlier this week. Aside from showing clips of his greatest moments in WWE, several of the performers are going to be allowed to do their own tribute to the former world heavyweight champion. There are also rumors that former wrestlers are being called in for the event as well.
April 11, 2014
AJ Lee
Even though she made her debut on Monday Night Raw and captured the WWE Divas Championship from AJ Lee in a shocking manner, Paige will not be traveling with the main roster this upcoming weekend. Instead, she will be working WWE NXT shows in Florida, where she is expected to finish up and possibly drop the developmental title to another diva.
April 10, 2014
Antonio Cesaro
On Monday Night Raw, fans witnessed a different feel in WWE, as the company introduced several new stars and began pushing some current ones, such as Antonio Cesaro and Wade Barrett. The rumor is that WWE is making some changes because financial analysts have been saying that die hard fans have been losing interest in the product, which has caused WWE investors to flee the company.
April 10, 2014
Adam Rose
Since management had an initiative this week to introduce as many new stars as possible, Adam Rose vignettes were presented to fans in the arena and at home on Monday Night Raw. WWE was impressed with Rose, but some felt that he needed a little more time down in developmental. Many believed that Adrian Neville and Sami Zayn were ahead of him in line.
April 9, 2014
Ultimate Warrior
In one of the most shocking news ever, the Ultimate Warrior has died. His death comes just a day after he made his return to Monday Night Raw. It also comes during the same week where he was finally was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame and made a special appearance at Wrestlemania 30. No further details have been released yet.
April 8, 2014
David Otunga
In a rather interesting move, David Otunga left New Orleans on Monday and was not in attendance at Monday Night Raw this week. Many were under the impression that he would have worked the show since he was given a spot at Wrestlemania 30. It does not appear that WWE has Otunga involved in long term television plans.
April 8, 2014
Damien Sandow
Despite the guy still having a large fan base, the return of Rob Van Dam was removed from the Hulu broadcast of Monday Night Raw this week. The former world heavyweight champion defeated Damien Sandow in a quick match, but WWE did not view it as a segment important enough to be shown to their fans on Hulu. A lot of eyes will be on RVD now to see how much of a push that he receives from management.
April 8, 2014
Rey Mysterio
Despite receiving one of the loudest reactions from a live audience in quite some time, Wade Barrett was removed from the Hulu broadcast of Monday Night Raw this week. WWE officials did not deem his return match against Rey Mysterio, who might be on his way out of the company, to be important enough to show their fans who watch through Hulu.
April 8, 2014
Alexander Rusev
Despite the company being very high on the guy, Alexander Rusev had his debut match removed from the Hulu broadcast of Monday Night Raw this week. He defeated Zack Ryder in a squash match, but WWE officials deemed it not important enough to show their fans on Hulu. This leads to a lot of questions about how strong of a push Rusev will receive.
April 8, 2014
David Otunga
Since he had not been seen on Monday Night Raw in quite some time, a lot of fans questioned whether or not David Otunga was under contract with WWE. Those queries were answered last night when Otunga worked the Wrestlemania 30 battle royal. It was a reward from the company for his work as an ambassador. Otunga routinely makes appearances for WWE still.
April 7, 2014
Ultimate Warrior
WWE has just announced that the Ultimate Warrior will be on Monday Night Raw tonight. He was inducted into the hall of fame during Wrestlemania 30 weekend. No word yet on what he will be doing on television this week, but there are those that believe that this might be a long term thing, as Ultimate Warrior is now signed to a multiple year contract with WWE.
April 7, 2014

TNA has been promoting a Battle of the Knockouts for the upcoming episode of Impact Wrestling.

It is designed to promote the feud between Madison and Gail.
March 4, 2014
ODB
A rather interesting match took place at a TNA live event in Tennessee over the weekend. In order to fire up the audience for a backstage passes giveaway, Rockstar Spud played the antagonist by trying to prevent it from happening. ODB came out to challenge him to a match. She was victorious, so that enabled her to give away the free prize to fans.
March 2, 2014
ODB

On Impact Wrestling last night, Madison Rayne made her return to TNA, where the former Knockouts Champion saved ODB from an attack by Gail Kim and Lei'D Tapa. Rayne had taken some time away from the company to have a child.

December 13, 2013
ODB

There has been some confusion with fans about the relationship between Eric Young and ODB. While their characters recently got married on screen for TNA, they are simply just friends in real life. 

April 13, 2012
Christian
Initial plans for this past Monday Night Raw did not include a tournament to crown a new contender for the WWE Intercontinental Championship. Management was originally expecting Christian to be able to come back and cash in his title shot. However, there were some bad news on the veteran performer, who has been recovering from yet another concussion, so WWE changed the plans.

April 16, 2014
Alberto Del Rio
Prior to Wrestlemania 30, there were plans in place to push Alberto Del Rio towards Big E Langston and the WWE Intercontinental Championship, so when the tournament was announced, many viewed Del Rio as a top candidate to win. However, management has changed their minds on that push, as evident by the fact that Del Rio lost to Rob Van Dam on Monday Night Raw this week.
April 16, 2014
Goldust
Since WWE introduced quite a bit of new performers on Monday Night Raw this week, rumors have been running rampant about which of the current stars on the main roster are going to be removed to make room. One of the names that has popped up is Goldust, as his contract with WWE is expiring in the near future. The veteran performer signed a short term deal upon his return last year.
April 13, 2014
Adrian Neville
Since the company introduced so many new faces on Monday Night Raw this week, speculations have ran rampant about which WWE NXT will be called up to the main roster as well. Heavyweight champion Adrian Neville has been heavily discussed by fans, but it appears that WWE will be keeping him in developmental until at least the summer.
April 13, 2014
Damien Sandow
There are people backstage in WWE that are questioning the Rob Van Dam return, as it almost feels like an afterthought. Aside from taking place on the same episode of Monday Night Raw where so many new stars were introduced, he also worked a match against Damien Sandow, a performer that has rarely been in a featured role in WWE.
April 11, 2014
Alexander Rusev
A video from WWE Main Event of a match between Alexander Rusev, who made his in ring debut on Monday Night Raw this week against Zack Ryder, and Sin Cara.

April 11, 2014
Natalya Neidhart
Since he is still involved with Natalya Neidhart on Total Divas, WWE wants to figure out a way to utilize Tyson Kidd more as a wrestler on Monday Night Raw and Smackdown.

April 11, 2014

April 10, 2014
Brock Lesnar
While the audience was quite jovial towards him during Monday Night Raw, there are no plans in place for WWE to do a face turn for Brock Lesnar, as the company feels that he is much more of a draw as a dominant heel. The fans were basically cheering for the tremendous promo that Paul Heyman was cutting about the end of the Undertaker streak.
April 10, 2014
Sting
Even though he did not show up at Wrestlemania 30 or the following Monday Night Raw, things between Sting and WWE are not over and done with. There are many backstage that believe that management will still continue to negotiate with Sting, as they feel that he can be a valuable marketing asset for the WCW library that they currently air on the WWE Network.
April 9, 2014
Batista
As seen on Monday Night Raw this week, WWE is teasing the fans with a potential feud between the Shield and Evolution. There are talks that Batista, Randy Orton, Triple H, Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins could be utilized in a big main event match at Extreme Rules 2014. WWE still has to decide on what to do with Daniel Bryan at the pay per view, though.

Ultimate Warrior
"Every man's heart one day beats its final beat. His lungs breathe a final breath.

April 13, 2014
Drew McIntyre
On WWE Main Event, Hornswoggle teamed up with Jinder Mahal and Drew McIntyre, which has caused some speculations to arise. Rumors over the past several weeks have stated that Heath Slater was unhappy backstage because he was not receiving a push. However, his absence on this show was unrelated, as Slater missed the show because he is heading to Saudi Arabia for a tour with WWE.
April 17, 2014
AJ Lee
One of the biggest reasons why WWE opted to put the Divas championship on Paige is because AJ Lee really needed to take some time off from the road. Aside from being stuck in the figurative storm after CM Punk walked out on the company, AJ has been on the road constantly over the last year. Both her body and mind needed the break.
April 16, 2014
Darren Young
Days after disputing internet reports about his injury, it has now been revealed that Darren Young has suffered a torn ACL, which will keep him on the sidelines for the remainder of the year. The injury took place at a WWE live event last Saturday night. Since Young wasn't being pushed on television, management does not have to change much.
April 16, 2014
Batista
Even though he is one of the more known performers in the company, WWE is allowing Batista to skip out on the Saudi Arabia tour taking place this week. The belief when the former world heavyweight champion was brought back was that he would help with global marketing due to his history in the company and being a movie star.
April 16, 2014
Sami Zayn
When several of the WWE stars take off for Saudi Arabia this week, Sami Zayn will be joining them. He's the only developmental wrestler going on the tour. WWE wanted to get a better look at him, and some backstage feel that he might have some marketing appeal overseas. There are still rumors floating around that Zayn could be one of the WWE NXT stars to be called up to the main roster in the coming weeks.
April 16, 2014
Vickie Guerrero
After being heavily rumored to be leaving the company after Wrestlemania 30, Vickie Guerrero has continued to be on the road for WWE. This week, she worked the Smackdown taping. Afterwards, the wrestlers got together and threw her a little birthday party once the television taping was done. She turned 46 today.
April 16, 2014
Ultimate Warrior
The WWE Hall of Fame induction ceremony was sent over to On Demand to be aired this past week. However, management opted to make a couple of changes. One of those omissions was the part of the Ultimate Warrior speech where he talked about WWE losing the legal battle against WWF in court. Management did not want that to cause any further legal issues.
April 16, 2014
Stephanie McMahon
During a WWE Business Partner Summit, Stephanie McMahon revealed that the company will be completely shifting over to a new logo, which happens to be the current one used for the WWE Network, by Summerslam 2014.

April 16, 2014
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.
April 16, 2014
Brooke Tessmacher
Since he is one of their more underrated performers, TNA has managed to sign Robbie E to a long term contract extension. Some within the company view that he can be a star down the line, especially since he is still just 30 years of age. There were some questions as to whether or not Robbie was going to stay with the company since the status of his girlfriend Brooke Tessmacher has been up in the air.
April 16, 2014
Gunner
With so many of their performer contracts expiring this year, TNA officials have been busy with negotiations and signings. The latest person to put pen to paper is Gunner, a rising star in the promotion. With the deal, he is expected to remain with the company for a couple of years, and he is also expected to continue on his push since splitting with James Storm.
April 16, 2014
Chavo Guerrero
Throughout the past several months, Chavo Guerrero has been taking in quite a few business meetings, in order to set up his career outside of professional wrestling. It looks like one of those ventures has come to fruition, as Guerrero is now doing a talk show for GeekNation.com, called Where Men Come To Be Men. Rampage Jackson and John Morrison recently filmed an episode with him.
April 16, 2014
Lita
Since they really are best friends in real life, Trish Stratus and Lita have decided to capitalize on that relationship by doing a tour together. The former WWE divas will be hitting up various locations across the country to meet with fans and sign autographs. Aside from generating an income, the two of them will get a chance to spend some time together on the road as well.
April 16, 2014
Ultimate Warrior
In times of tragedy, the worst of the worst comes out, in order to take advantage of the situation. Several people have been selling illegal Ultimate Warrior merchandise shortly after the WWE legend died last week. Lawyers for his marketing company have already sent out cease and desist letters to over 100 different people, demanding that they quit selling products with his likeness attached.
April 16, 2014
Sting
A buzz was created in the world of professional wrestling earlier tonight when Sting made his official debut on the WWE Network.

April 15, 2014
Jeff Jarrett
In a rather nice win for his new Global Force Wrestling, Jeff Jarrett has revealed that he has signed a production deal with 25/7 Productions and Dave Broome, the man that created the popular Biggest Loser reality television show on NBC. Together, they are currently shopping a wrestling show around to the networks and hope to land a television spot soon.
April 15, 2014
Brock Lesnar
While a lot of people assume that he is an asshole because of his reserved nature, Brock Lesnar actually impressed quite a bit of people in WWE with the amount of respect that he showed the Undertaker at Wrestlemania 30. Not only did he thanks Undertaker in the ring for letting him beat the streak, Lesnar also rode to the hospital afterwards to visit Undertaker.
April 15, 2014
Ultimate Warrior
Now that the autopsy test has been concluded, it has been officially announced that the Ultimate Warrior died of heart failure, with the official statement being "Atherosclerotic/Arteriosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease". This qualifies as being a natural death, where drugs and alcohol are not directly related. However, long term drug use in the past could have been indirectly related.
April 15, 2014
Rock
It has been a rather busy month for the Rock. First, he flies into New Olreans to give WWE a hand with Wrestlemania 30. Then, he heads over to England to finalize things with the Hercules movie. Rock also stopped in Dubai to do some promotional work. His next stop is Australia, where the former WWE champion will start shooting the San Andreas movie.
April 15, 2014
CM Punk
While the widespread assumption is that CM Punk has been avoiding everyone in WWE since walking out on the company, it looks like he has been keeping up with Rey Mysterio. The masked superstar revealed on Instagram that the two of them still maintain communication. Mysterio also revealed that Punk sent him a custom made shirt this week.
