Brock Lesnar
While most wrestling fans would love to see him working a match at Wrestlemania 31, Undertaker is actually said to be quite fine with retirement. He didn't make the decision to drop the winning streak to Brock Lesnar, but he reportedly does not mind ending his career on the losing end of a match. WWE wants him back, but the ball is entirely in the court of the Undertaker. For what it's worth, the legend is still staying in shape and working out.

Scott Hall
After announcing his retirement from UFC, Chael Sonnen posted a quote on his Twitter account that stated, "Bad times don't last, but bad guys do." The comment caught the attention of Scott Hall, who proceeded to criticize Sonnen for stealing the line that he made while being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. This appears to be a misunderstanding as Sonnen is a big fan of wrestling and has used several quotes over the years.
June 22, 2014
Gail Kim
During a recent interview, Gail Kim was asked about retirement. The TNA Knockout stated that she was not quite sure when that would be, but she did reveal that she wanted to be a trainer once that happens. Some might believe that she would return to WWE to work in their developmental territory, but with the way she left the company, there might still be some backstage heat towards her.
June 11, 2014
Sabu
In a move that has long been predicted, Sabu is going against orders from his doctors and avoiding retirement from professional wrestling. Rumors are floating around that the former ECW star was advised by medical personnel to quit being an in ring performer after breaking several bones in his arms during a match on the independent wrestling circuit. Sabu is choosing to continue as a wrestler.

Daniel Bryan
During a recent podcast interview with Jim Ross, WWE legend Shawn Michaels revealed that he had no intentions of coming out of retirement to work a match against Daniel Bryan, who was his real life protege at one point in time.

Low Ki
After changing his mind on retirement, it now appears that Low Ki is set to sign a contract with TNA.

The hope is that he can use his knowledge and experience to help improve the division for TNA.
May 2, 2014
Charlie Haas
With Jeff Jarrett traveling the world to find professional wrestling stars to join his new Global Force Wrestling, a name that has popped up in the rumor mills is Charlie Haas. The former WWE star has been really quiet since his odd departure from ROH. Haas has been in semi retirement, working small shows here and there in Texas. He would bring a veteran presence and a familiar face to GFW.
April 24, 2014
Low Ki
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
Damien Sandow
Over the weekend, Mark Henry worked a live event for WWE in Austin, where he currently lives. He received a nice reaction from the audience and was given a victory over Damien Sandow. Afterwards, he grabbed the microphone and addressed the audience. Henry informed the fans that the retirement rumors regarding him are false. The belief is that it was done to drum up support for the former world heavyweight champion.
March 16, 2014
Mark Henry
While he teased fans with his retirement on Monday Night Raw not too long ago, Mark Henry is actually going to be retiring when his contract with WWE expires in two years. However, he fully intends to remain with the company. He has been setting himself up to work with the developmental program as a trainer and as a talent scout.
February 22, 2014
Alberto Del Rio
There are rumors floating around that Rey Mysterio might be working a retirement match at Wrestlemania 30, as his contract with WWE is ending in a few months. In order to generate even further international media attention, the belief is that Alberto Del Rio will be given the honor of being the opponent for the bout.
February 21, 2014
Christian
There are rumors floating around right now that Christian could retire after Elimination Chamber 2014. Some believe that WWE could use his real life retirement to sell the brutality of the steel cage match itself. The company has been planting seeds over the last few weeks by emphasizing the "one last match" theme with Christian.
February 20, 2014
Jim Ross
During his interview with Jim Ross on his new podcast, Steve Austin talked about his own retirement from professional wrestling. He stated that he did not reveal it to the world at Wrestlemania 19 because it was not good for business. Vince McMahon asked him to keep it quiet because WWE was going public.
February 19, 2014
Jim Ross
Jim Ross kicked off his new podcast series, and he had his good friend Steve Austin as the guest. The two longtime WWE stars discussed the Undertaker and his upcoming retirement.

February 19, 2014
Bray Wyatt
During a recent interview, Shawn Michaels was asked who he would come out of retirement and work a Wrestlemania 30 match with. The legend listed Daniel Bryan, Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose, Damien Sandow, Dolph Ziggler and Bray Wyatt as WWE stars that he would share that honor with at the pay per view.
February 14, 2014
Kensuke Sasaki
After more than a quarter of a century in the industry, Kensuke Sasaki is announcing his retirement from professional wrestling. The Japanese legend gained some fame in the United States by being revealed as the mystery tag team partner of the Road Warriors in the NWA. He was the one that replaced Sting when they turned heel.
February 13, 2014
Charlie Haas
Last spring, Charlie Haas abruptly announced his retirement after a really weird incident with ROH that took place both backstage and in the ring. While many expected him to resurface, he has opted to remain off the grid. He has worked a couple of matches on the independent wrestling circuit in Texas, but those were mainly small shows.
February 10, 2014
Jim Ross
During an interview with Newsday, where he was asked about the incident that led to his forced retirement from WWE, Jim Ross again made it a point to deny that he had been drinking with Ric Flair during Summerslam 2013 weekend. The commentator stated that he was involved in other activities during the day.
February 6, 2014
Low Ki

Low Ki has stayed true to his words about retirement and has not been wrestling as of late, but he recently decided to get involved in the business on a short term basis. Along with former WWE star Matt Striker, he was recently spotted at House of Glory, guest training some performers.

February 5, 2014
Cameron
With AJ Lee finally making her return to WWE, the competition in the divas division just got a bit tougher. Someone is going to be losing television time. Naomi Knight and Cameron appear to be safe, as they have a heel turn story line in progress. Summer Rae and Layla El appear to have their weekly television spots secured for the time being. Paige is going to be working a program against AJ, so she should be fine. The belief is that Alicia Fox will be the one demoted, even though her character was gaining a little bit of momentum over the last couple of weeks.
July 5, 2014
Naomi Knight
Naomi Knight was given a crack at the WWE Divas Championship at Money in the Bank 2014, but it was Paige that walked away as the reigning titleholder after a DDT and a pin. The match was designed to further the eventual split between Naomi and Cameron, who was at ringside and taking glee whenever her tag team partner was in peril against Paige.
June 29, 2014
Cameron
Rumors are floating around right now that Cameron will be doing a heel turn at Money in the Bank 2014. She will more than likely cost Naomi Knight her chance at the WWE Divas Championship. There is also speculations that the incident will then lead to a triple threat match at WWE Battleground 2014, which would also feature Paige as the champion still.
June 27, 2014
Paige
Rumors leaked recently about Vince McMahon not being a big fan of Paige, which would explain why the creative department has not given her much to work with since she captured the WWE Divas Championship. That riled up her mother, who happens to be a professional wrestler in England. She replied on social media by denying the rumors and mocking wrestling sites for their accuracy. However, she later deleted the messages, perhaps realizing that she was adding fuel to the fire and hurting her daughter by addressing the rumors.
June 17, 2014
Paige
Since there are key members of management who are big fans of her new gimmick, Alicia Fox is expected to receive a nice push in the upcoming weeks. There's a very good chance that she could end up winning the WWE Divas Championship in the near future since rumors have been floating around that Vince McMahon is not a fan of Paige and her work.
June 14, 2014
Vince McMahon
While a lot of fans are high on the newcomer, Vince McMahon is said to not be a fan of Paige, even though she currently wears his WWE Divas Championship. Rumors have it that she has not been given much of a story line to work with because McMahon is not backing her. It is probably the reason why the creative department has done little character development for her.
June 12, 2014
Alicia Fox
There are rumors floating around that Paige simply is not a priority in WWE at the moment. Aside from management not giving her much of a story to work with and very little character development, the company also opted to remove her match against Alicia Fox this week from the Hulu version of Monday Night Raw. WWE does not deem it to be important enough to make the cut.

Ultimate Warrior

June 10, 2014
Paige
Now that she has successfully defend the WWE Divas Championship against Alicia Fox, it looks like Paige is moving on to another challenger. Based on a press conference video, it appears that the next challenger is Cameron. The move could be designed to help promote her new music. It could also be WWE filming footage for the upcoming season of Total Divas as well.
June 3, 2014
Alicia Fox
In a match designed to be the buffer between the two main event features at Payback 2014, Paige successfully defended the WWE Divas Championship against Alicia Fox via submission. Afterwards, Alicia continued her story line of going crazy whenever things do not go well for her. The audience reacted more to the post match antics than the actual match.
June 2, 2014
Paige
It looks like WWE is throwing quite a bit of faith into Paige. Aside from giving her the Divas Championship on the special episode of Monday Night Raw following Wrestlemania 30, management is also sending her to the big Comic Con event in Chicago. This is considered one of the bigger events of its kind, so the fact that they chose Paige instead of a Total Divas cast member is a telling sign.
May 20, 2014
Bray Wyatt
In a sign that WWE wants his character to hit the mainstream, Bray Wyatt has been booked for Comic Con event in Chicago in August. Previously, management had instructed Wyatt to avoid doing any media appearances and interviews to preserve his character. Now, they're having him work a huge public event with John Cena, Batista, Paige and Bruno Sammartino.
May 20, 2014
Paige
WWE is not playing favorites during the current tour of Europe when it comes to Naomi Knight and Jimmy Uso. The newly married couple are working separate legs of the tour. Naomi is working with Paige and Cameron on the Raw shows, while Jimmy Uso is with Jey Uso on the Smackdown group. They will both be at Monday Night Raw together, though.
May 15, 2014
Damien Sandow
Fans who watched Monday Night Raw saw Alicia Fox throwing quite a fit at ringside after losing her match to WWE Divas Champion Paige. The company also released a video on the app, where Alicia approached Stephanie McMahon and quit the company. Early rumors floating around are that Alicia, Damien Sandow and several other WWE stars are working a story line about lower level performers being frustrated.
May 12, 2014
Tamina Snuka
While management has expressed some concerns backstage about the lackluster reactions that she has been receiving from the live audiences, WWE had no intentions of swapping the Divas Championship from Paige to Tamina Snuka at Extreme Rules 2014. Rumors have it that management is simply waiting for AJ Lee to return, so that she can work with Paige in a rematch feud.
May 5, 2014
Paige
Since WWE needed a Divas Championship match at Extreme Rules 2014, Paige was given the victory over Tamina Snuka after delivering her submission finisher. The segment was short and quick, providing only a couple of spots outside the ring. It basically served as a pay per view buffer between the steel cage match and the world title match.
May 4, 2014
Paige
It looks like Layla El will not be the next WWE NXT Women's Champion, as the longtime diva has been eliminated from the tournament to crown a new titleholder. She lost to Natalya Neidhart this week. Rather than allowing Paige to hold both this belt and the WWE Divas Championship, management opted to strip her of the title and hold a tournament.

Brie Bella

April 28, 2014
Aksana
Even though she defeated AJ Lee and is the current WWE Divas Champion, management is still using the same strategy on Paige as they do with other new performers. She has been working against lower level opponents like Aksana and Alicia Fox. That plan is not working out as WWE expected, as fan reaction has been a bit disappointing during the matches.
