"Yes, of course. I'm Mexican. I grew up watching him. I saw him several times before he came to WWE or any other company in the US. He wrestled for years and years in Mexico, especially in Ciudad Juarez. I've always admired him. He started from the bottom and at the end of his career he was one of the most amazing, most popular Superstars in the world."

Hulk Hogan

"Everything kinda went downhill very fast. There was an accident that my son was involved in, and a good friend of ours was in the accident with my son. Just the marriage basically crashing and burning. After the show [Hogan Knows Best], I kinda hit rock bottom. Everything got dark, everything happened at once. I was drinking alcohol very heavily. It just all kept piling up, it all kept mounting and mounting and I didn't know how to handle it. I always wondered how could someone possibly take their own life, and so I got to that point where I said, 'You know what, maybe this would be easy. You know, maybe this would be an easy way to fix things.'"

Randy Orton
Rumors are floating around that Randy Orton suffered a serious injury during the handicap street fight tag team match on Monday Night Raw. It took place early in the match when Dean Ambrose dove out of the ring and on to the heels. Orton reportedly told the trainer that the ruptured disc in his back was messed up. No word yet on whether or not he can work Hell in a Cell 2014, but as a precaution, WWE kept Orton from working Smackdown this week.
October 22, 2014
John Cena
Initially, WWE felt that a match between John Cena and Randy Orton at Hell in a Cell 2014 was going to be able to sell itself. Management reportedly noticed the lack of interest and a good amount of complaint from fans, so they made the decision to change things up. The winner now gets a shot at the heavyweight championship, which should pique interest from more fans.
October 21, 2014
Seth Rollins
WWE is promoting Hell in a Cell 2014 as having a double main event, and the reason behind that is simple. They do not believe that Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins are proven draws yet, even with the big steel structure and a highly entertaining feud behind them. Thus, the reliance on John Cena and Randy Orton, two guys that the company has relied on for years now, to help sell the pay per view.
October 14, 2014
Randy Orton
With reports surfacing that he has signed a new contract with WWE that enables him to work fewer days, Randy Orton has decided to take to Twitter to address the issue. Not surprisingly, the former world heavyweight champion is denying the rumors and instructing fans to not believe everything that they hear. Orton has not worked as many live events as he used to, so there are some merits to the reports.
October 12, 2014
Randy Orton
Reports surfaced this week that WWE agreed to modify the contract that they had with Randy Orton, in order to reduce the amount of work that he needs to do each year. Word is now coming out that part of that agreement enables Orton to skip out on a portion of the upcoming tour of Europe. The former world heavyweight champion is only going to work the first half of the run.
October 12, 2014
Seth Rollins
Management dedicates a lot of their creativity to events such as Royal Rumble 2015. With Randy Orton being penciled in for a baby face turn and a push, there are discussions going on backstage about having him do that at during the big battle royal. A potential story would have the former world heavyweight champion rebelling against the Authority and their wish to have Seth Rollins winning the match.
October 9, 2014
Randy Orton
After spending more than a decade on the road for the company, Randy Orton and WWE have come to a new agreement that will enable the former world heavyweight champion to have some more time off. A modification in the contract now allows Orton to skip out on various live events throughout the year. For a long stretch of time there, he was featured as one of the headliners on the tours.
October 9, 2014
Dean Ambrose
On Monday Night Raw, Triple H and Stephanie McMahon announced that John Cena and Dean Ambrose would be facing one another in a match at Hell in a Cell 2014, and the winner would get to work the main event against Seth Rollins in the gigantic steel structure. Rumors are still floating around that the loser of the match will be given Randy Orton as a consolation prize.

In order to create new matches in the main event scene, WWE is contemplating a baby face turn for Randy Orton in the near future.

Roman Reigns
For the past 24 years, Pro Wrestling Illustrated has listed the top 500 performers in the industry. Despite being injured, Daniel Bryan was given the top honor this year.

Randy Orton
It looks like another wrestler is upset with WWE and wants time off. This time, it's Randy Orton. The former world heavyweight champion is said to be really upset with how management has been utilizing him. The belief is that Orton feels that he should be involved in the main event scene more frequently. He has been demanding some time away from WWE, but since the roster is so thin right now, management has only been able to give him time away from live events over the last couple of weeks.
September 16, 2014
Chris Jericho
If you're a big fan of Chris Jericho, then definitely check out Night of Champions 2014, as that will be the last time that we see him in WWE for quite some time.

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.
August 22, 2014
Dolph Ziggler
There are those that believe that WWE will be having Ric Flair managing Dolph Ziggler after all. Their interaction on Monday Night Raw might have been the seeds planted by the creative department. Apparently, Ziggler is not in the dog house with management any more. There's even talks that he might be elevated up the card into a feud with Randy Orton soon.
August 21, 2014
Dolph Ziggler
A little buzz was created this week when Dolph Ziggler defeated Randy Orton in the main event of a WWE live event. A lot of fans believed that this would be the start of a push for the former world heavyweight champion. However, that does not appear to be the case. Ziggler was simply substituting for Roman Reigns, who was on another tour. WWE usually lets the baby face win the final match of the night to send the live audience home happy.
August 11, 2014
Randy Orton
It looks like Randy Orton still has a bit of the acting bug. The WWE star informed his fan through Twitter that he was working on a deal to star in another movie. Orton also revealed that they were in the early stages, so he cannot provide much details at the moment. Once the film starts production, it is expected that the former world heavyweight champion will miss some television time for WWE.
August 6, 2014
Roman Reigns
Since Roman Reigns is headed towards a big match against Randy Orton at Summerslam 2014, that has left many to wonder if he is still going to work a program against Triple H. That feud is definitely still on the table, as WWE believes it will be the one to catapult him into the main event scene. The company simply has yet to figure out when they want the two of them to start working together.

Randy Orton
While the general consensus in professional wrestling is that the world heavyweight champion plays a bit part in the overall success of the company, a recent article from Forbes attempts to dispute that by looking at the financial ramifications during the title reigns of CM Punk, John Cena and Randy Orton. Since the numbers are all over the place, the author concluded that the heavyweight champion does not have much of an effect on the business end of WWE.
