Paige
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
Paige
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
Paige
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
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
Paige
A video from Monday Night Raw of Brie Bella being given a WWE Divas Championship match against Paige by Stephanie McMahon, who was trying to butter up Daniel Bryan in the story line.
April 30, 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
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
Alberto Del Rio
There are still a lot of fans under the belief that the Alberto Del Rio release was a work by WWE. Some are basing solely on the fact that the company has addressed his actions in a straightforward manner. Those within the industry, though, know that this is a legitimate thing. There is no story line being set up for a feud between Del Rio and Triple H.
August 10, 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
Bray Wyatt
Rumors are floating around that WWE is going to be bringing in another member of the Wyatt Family to help Bray Wyatt regain some of the momentum that he has lost over the last couple of weeks. Word has it that the story line will consists of Erick Rowan and Luke Harper both being banned from ringside at Summerslam 2014. The new character would make their debut that night.
August 3, 2014
Alexander Rusev
Rumors are floating around right now that WWE has decided to drop the story line involving Zeb Colter, Jack Swagger, Alexander Rusev and Lana. The belief is that the company changed their minds after seeing the backlash from the media and the fans over the controversial promo that Lana cut at the pay per view. WWE did not let her do much talking on Monday Night Raw this week.
July 22, 2014
Alexander Rusev
With the real life incident of an airplane being shot down in war torn Ukraine, there are rumors going around that WWE may be forced to tone down the ongoing story line with Alexander Rusev and Lana. Since a lot of people died in the incident, the company may need to be sensitive to the public right now. Vince McMahon loves pushing the envelope, but with WWE struggling financially, now would not be the time for such a move.
July 20, 2014
Cameron
Since the Total Divas writers are hoping to create a bit of a buzz for next season, there are talks that they will have WWE do a story line soon where Naomi Knight and Cameron decide to split up and go their own separate ways. Rumors are suggesting that Naomi will be the one to turn heel, even though Cameron has a more natural ability to get people to hate her.
June 19, 2014
Cody Rhodes
Rumors are running rampant right now that Ted DiBiase will be making his return to WWE tonight, as Goldust has been posting several interesting updates on Twitter. He and DiBiase even had a direct interaction, where they asked one another if they would be at Monday Night Raw tonight. WWE is running a story line where Cody Rhodes has been choosing tag team partners for his older brother.
June 9, 2014
Daniel Bryan
With Daniel Bryan injured, things are a bit hectic backstage in WWE, as he was the centerpiece story line. The situation backstage is made even worse by the fact that the company has seen its stock plummet. It has now gotten to the point where Vince McMahon himself is taking over more control of the creative department than usual. He has been making decisions on how to work around the Bryan injury.
June 8, 2014
Fandango
WWE is currently planning a big match between Summer Rae and Layla El, where Fandango would be the special guest referee. Rumors are floating around that the writers will do a story line where Fandango starts to question his decision to leave Summer Rae. If this gains enough steam, then WWE would even consider putting it on a pay per view.
May 24, 2014
Alexander Rusev
An interesting rumor floating around right now has the Nation of Domination stable making a return to WWE. Some have noted that the four performers that have lost to Alexander Rusev recently are all black. The speculation is that R Truth, Xavier Woods, Kofi Kingston and Big E Langston will band together as a unit in the story line soon.
May 19, 2014
Cody Rhodes
Another match being penciled in for Extreme Rules 2014 is Cody Rhodes vs Goldust. WWE has been planting the seeds of dissension between the real life brothers, and you can expect the story line to heat up over the next couple of weeks, leading to a pay per view match. Depending on how well the fans react to the feud, Goldust could be leaving WWE shortly afterwards.
May 11, 2014
Daniel Bryan
Since Kane is scheduled to be working a Buried Alive match against Daniel Bryan at Payback 2014, rumors are floating around that this could be how WWE writes the Big Red Machine out of the story line for a couple of weeks. Something big has to happen to put Bryan over, so Kane will most likely take the fall and be removed from television.
May 7, 2014
Bray Wyatt
During the steel cage match at Extreme Rules 2014, John Cena came close to victory, but he was stopped from leaving the structure by a kid who sang in a distorted voice. Rumors going around right now is that he is the actual son of Bray Wyatt. There are talks that the kid could be utilized again on Monday Night Raw to further the story line between Wyatt and Cena.
May 5, 2014
Batista
Rumors are heating up quite a bit about the story line between Evolution and Shield tonight at Extreme Rules 2014. With Ric Flair having a standing offer to return and with Batista agreeing to stay with WWE for another month, the belief is that Flair will turn on Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns at the pay per view. His reunion with Triple H, Batista and Randy Orton would be a centerpiece story on Monday Night Raw.
May 4, 2014
Cody Rhodes
When Cody Rhodes and Goldust finally split up in the story line, it appears that the younger brother will be the one doing the heel turn. WWE has been testing out the audience reaction by having Rhodes walk out on Goldust during tag team matches. The belief is that fans would be more sympathetic towards Goldust because of the nostalgia factor.
May 3, 2014
Cody Rhodes
Despite being given a new story line where he more than likely will be splitting from his brother Goldust and possibly feuding with him, Cody Rhodes remains very low on the priority list backstage in WWE right now. The highly talented performer has not been utilized in a high profile position for quite a few months. Speculation of backstage heat still persists.
April 29, 2014
Antonio Cesaro
A match being discussed backstage for Extreme Rules 2014 right now involves Jack Swagger, Rob Van Dam and Antonio Cesaro doing a triple threat. WWE wants to put the story line between Swagger and Cesaro on a pay per view, but they are concerned about having two heels in a match, so the idea of RVD being involved has been tossed around.
April 25, 2014
Paige
Rumors are floating around right now that AJ Lee is going to be leaving WWE very soon. Those speculations were further flamed last night when she dropped the Divas Championship to Paige at Summerslam 2014. The root of the rumors stems from a comment that Jim Ross made on his blog. It was just something that the long time commentator was speculating upon.
August 18, 2014
Paige
Rumors are going around that Ashley Flair has moved to the front of the line for a promotion from developmental to the main roster in WWE. There are some roadblocks in her way, though. Total Divas is set to become a major focus again very soon, so the writers will put an emphasis on them when writing Monday Night Raw. Flair might also have to wait a bit longer if Paige picks up more momentum in her feud with AJ Lee.
August 12, 2014
Paige
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
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
Paige
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
After dropping the belt to Paige the night after Wrestlemania 30, AJ Lee was given some time off, presumably to rest up and move to Chicago to be with boyfriend, former WWE star CM Punk. Rumors are floating around that AJ will be returning to the company in May, as she has been advertised for the European tour. She is also advertised for events in June.
April 23, 2014
Paige
Since AJ Lee is taking some time off, WWE needed to find a challenge for Paige and the Divas championship. Management has opted to go with Tamina Snuka, who is expected to be the challenger at Extreme Rules 2014. WWE has been high on Tamina for quite some time now, and they have been looking at ways to reward her.
April 17, 2014
Paige
One of the ideas being discussed right now is to have Ric Flair managing Ashley Flair in WWE NXT. With Paige being elevated to the main roster, management can now put more of the spotlight on Ashley, Sasha Banks and Bayley. Having the Nature Boy involved would help to increase interest from the audience, as he is still a beloved performer.
April 15, 2014
Paige
Since she is now the WWE Divas Champion, Paige will be dropping the WWE NXT Women's Championship soon. The top candidates at the moment are Ashley Flair and Sasha Banks. While some are pushing for management to put Bayley in the spot, the company feels that it would be better for business if she were to chase the title for a couple of months first.
April 13, 2014
Paige
Even though WWE is bringing up Bo Dallas, Alexander Rusev, Adam Rose and Paige, there are still plans from management to move Sami Zayn from the WWE NXT roster to the main one. There were talks that he was going to be kept in developmental, so that the program can have some depth and star power, but it looks like WWE is going all in now.
April 11, 2014
Paige
Now that Paige is on the main roster and has won the WWE Divas Championship from AJ Lee, people backstage are trying to decide who to put the WWE NXT Women's Championship on. Ashley Flair has been receiving a bit of push as of late, and the belief is that she is the top candidate to carry the strap. Ric Flair could become more involved in the product at this point.
April 10, 2014
Paige
For a while there, things appeared to be looking up for JoJo Offerman, as she was utilized a bit with the main roster in WWE and was a cast member of Total Divas, a focal point for the company. Now, though, it appears that she is just another developmental diva, standing in line behind the likes of Paige, Ashley Flair and even Sasha Banks.
March 9, 2014
Paige

Initially, it was reported that Paige was given several weeks off by WWE to deal with an undisclosed injury, but there are now reports that the developmental diva was actually taking some time off to deal with some personal issues. Paige made her return to NXT recently.

January 22, 2014
Paige

While the backstage heat on Ric Flair has subsided tremendously, Ashley Flair remains in developmental and should be there for a little while longer, as WWE is now focused on elevating Paige and Emma to the main roster.

January 20, 2014
Paige
There are many people backstage in WWE that are pushing for Paige to be called up to the main roster from NXT in the near future.
October 27, 2013
Bully Ray
Since her character has a broken back, Dixie Carter is selling that fact by staying away from Impact Wrestling. However, TNA fans will get to see her at least once more. Mikey Tenay and Carter will be doing an interview from her home soon. The move is designed to further the story line and generate more of a reaction for Bully Ray and the other faces.
August 15, 2014
AJ Styles
An interesting story line took place in New Japan this week. After AJ Styles lost to Hiroshi Tanahashi, the Bullet Club proceeded to attack Tanahashi. Jeff Jarrett, who was actually in town to sign a promotional contract with NJPW, made the save. However, when Scott D'Amore opened up the guitar case, it was painted with the Bullet Club sign. Jarrett then attacked Tanahashi before posing with the rest of the Bullet Club.
August 10, 2014
Brie Bella
To further their story line, WWE has revealed that Stephanie McMahon has invited Brie Bella to make an appearance on the next episode of Monday Night Raw. This should move them closer to the long rumored match at Summerslam 2014. The belief is that this also gives the company an opportunity to showcase Daniel Bryan and capitalize on the fame that he recently picked up by detaining a burglar.
July 28, 2014
Jerry Lawler
While he receives a bad rap from a lot of fans due to WWE giving him a heavyweight championship run a couple of years back, Miz is actually very much a student of the game. He has remained motivated despite not being given a push in a while. Miz has also been studying legendary actor Andy Kaufman, who will forever have a place in wrestling history thanks to his memorable story line with Jerry Lawler during the 1980s, so that he can improve his gimmick and character.
July 19, 2014
Bobby Lashley
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
John Cena
A somewhat interesting thing took place backstage at Monday Night Raw this week. Naomi Knight took a picture of herself with Kevin Hart and uploaded it to Instagram. However, the WWE diva made the mistake of including John Cena and Kane, who are fighting in the story line, in the background. Luckily, she was able to remove and edit the photo before management caught on.
June 17, 2014
Big Show
On Monday Night Raw, WWE did a story line where Randy Orton was on vacation. That led to speculations as to the real reason why he was not there. It has now been revealed that Orton suffered some sort of collarbone injury while working a match on Smackdown with Big Show. The belief is that the injury is not too severe and that Orton is scheduled to return to the next episode of Monday Night Raw in Cleveland.
June 12, 2014
Bully Ray
While there are still some questions whether or not this is a shoot or a story line, Tommy Dreamer is telling fans that he might be done with TNA as a backstage agent after an incident where he bashed Dixie Carter for removing Bully Ray at the last minute from his House of Hardcore show. His departure has not been confirmed yet, and many are still under the belief that this is an elaborate work.
June 11, 2014
Brad Maddox
When WWE did a story line where Brad Maddox was fired from Monday Night Raw, many were under the impression that management had a plan in place to turn him into an in ring performer, something that he has been wanting to be for quite some time now. However, it appears that WWE does not have plans in place for Maddox to make his return any time soon.
June 11, 2014
Bully Ray
An interesting situation took place at the House of Hardcore show in New York tonight. Tommy Dreamer bashed Dixie Carter for pulling Bully Ray from his show at the last minute. He stated that the TNA president pulled Bully to appear on a promotional event for Impact Wrestling. Dreamer has a working relationship with Carter, so there are rumors that this was simply a story line to generate interest in both promotions.
June 6, 2014
Batista
On Monday Night Raw, WWE did a story line where Batista quit the company after an opening segment interview with Triple H. Batista was upset because he feels that he has been lied to about title opportunities. The former world heavyweight champion walked out of thing, leaving HHH and Randy Orton behind to wonder about the future of Evolution.
June 2, 2014
Madison Rayne
For those that did not watch Impact Wrestling this week, TNA has started a lesbian story line within their Knockouts division. The risque program involves Brittany (Santana Garrett) finally professing her love to Madison Rayne after weeks of the former attempting to get the latter to team up in matches. No word yet on where TNA will be taking this story, but it has caught some attention.
May 31, 2014
Brad Maddox
On Monday Night Raw this week, Brad Maddox was called out by Stephanie McMahon, Kane and Triple H. He was attacked and fired as the general manager of Monday Night Raw. That has led to plenty of rumors and speculations about his future with the company. As of right now, Maddox is still employed by WWE and this is simply just a story line.
May 26, 2014
Daniel Bryan
WWE is wrapping up their tour of Europe and the performers will be heading back to the United States. The next episode of Monday Night Raw is taking place in Tennessee, and Daniel Bryan, who recently had neck surgery, is being advertised to make an appearance. This could be a swerve by Stephanie McMahon to further sell the story line between the two.
May 21, 2014
Alicia Fox
For story line purposes, WWE is reporting that Tony Chimel has suffered a concussion after being slapped by Alicia Fox, the diva who is currently working a story where her character is frustrated with all of the losing that she has endured over the last year. Alicia even mentioned on Twitter that she has sent him flowers. Chimel is actually fine.
May 15, 2014
Bobby Roode
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
Daniel Bryan
On Monday Night Raw, Daniel Bryan stood in the middle of the ring and addressed the entire WWE Universe. He informed everyone that he was suffering from a neck injury and required surgery. While some fans believe this to just be a story line, it is actually real. The surgery is said to be a minor one, but there are those backstage that believe that he might be forced to miss Payback 2014.
May 12, 2014
Brie Bella
A video from Monday Night Raw of Daniel Bryan and Brie Bella running away from Kane backstage. WWE is building towards a Buried Alive match between the two at Payback 2014, so the story line will be continued.
May 6, 2014
Bray Wyatt
For a while, there was a push backstage within WWE to push Erick Rowan and Luke Harper a bit more, as many in the company felt that they have been putting on strong efforts when given a chance on television. However, those plans appear to have been dropped, as WWE has decided to use them as peripheral characters in the story line between Bray Wyatt and John Cena.
April 29, 2014
Ole Anderson
While he will forever associated with the famous wrestling last name, Ole Anderson is actually not an Anderson at all. His real name is Alan Rogowski. He simply adopted the Ole Anderson name to connect with the audience who were already familiar with Gene Anderson, his story line brother. Another interesting point of interest is that Ole Anderson is a play on the word oleander, a poisonous plant.
April 28, 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
Vince McMahon
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
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.
June 11, 2014
Ultimate Warrior
A picture of the daughters of the late Ultimate Warrior in the ring with Paige and Natalya Neidhart during a WWE live event in New Mexico earlier this week.
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
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
Batista
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
Cameron
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
Tamina Snuka
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
Natalya Neidhart
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.
May 2, 2014
Paige
A video of WWE Divas Champion Paige being featured on the 30 Second Fury series.
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.
April 27, 2014
JBL
A video of Paige being forced to give up the WWE NXT Women's Championship by JBL because she is going to be too busy defending the Divas championship that she won from AJ Lee on Monday Night Raw a couple of weeks ago.
April 26, 2014
Paige
Almost immediately after she shocked the wrestling world by beating AJ Lee for the WWE Divas Championship on Monday Night Raw, speculations arose as to what the fate of the WWE NXT Women's Championship was going to be. It now appears that the company has already filmed a segment where Paige is forced to vacate the developmental championship.
April 24, 2014
Paige
A video of the match between Paige and Aksana on Smackdown this week. Since she is new to the main roster, WWE is trying to give credibility to the Divas champion by having her work on television against as many of the female performers as possible.
April 21, 2014
Tamina Snuka
A video of the battle royal that took place on WWE Main Event this week to determine a new challenger for Paige and the Divas Championship. Tamina Snuka got the victory and a title shot at Extreme Rules 2014.
April 17, 2014
CM Punk
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
AJ Lee
A video of the first title defense by former developmental star Paige, who worked a match against Alicia Fox on Monday Night Raw this week, since winning the WWE Divas Championship from AJ Lee the night after Wrestlemania 30.
April 16, 2014
Paige
A very sexy picture of Paige wearing hot shorts. The WWE Divas Champion is posing in front of a mirror for a selfie and showing off her incredible body.
April 12, 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
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.
August 27, 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
Dean Ambrose
A Shield reunion could be taking place as soon as Night of Champions 2014. Unfortunately, though, the trio will not be on the same side. There are talks now that instead of doing a singles match between Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns, WWE could opt to go with a tag team match. Dean Ambrose would make his return and team up with Reigns against the team of Rollins and Kane.
August 26, 2014
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. The belief is that the movie studios are against the idea of him risking injuries by being an in ring performer again. Batista could have no choice but to comply since he wants his career in Hollywood to keep growing.
August 26, 2014
Dixie Carter
Reports have surfaced that the network currently interested in bringing TNA on board is Velocity. The channel is available in approximately 52 million households right now. Velocity is aimed at males between the ages of 25 and 54, which is beneficial to Dixie Carter and company because that is similar to the audience that Spike targets. No word yet on how far along the negotiations are at the moment.
August 25, 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.

Velvet Sky
There are rumors floating around right now that Velvet Sky is going to be leaving TNA soon. However, the speculations stem from an overreaction to something that might really be insignificant.

As of right now, her departure from the company is far from confirmed.

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.

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.
