Eric Young
Since he is now the TNA World Heavyweight Championship, Eric Young is being given a bit of a gimmick change, as management wants to move him further away from the comedic character that he has portraying over the years. TNA wants fans to believe that Young is a credible champion. His Monster's Ball match against Abyss on Impact Wrestling was to aid that.

Over the last several weeks, TNA officials have been busy, trying to secure long term deals on as many of their performers as they possibly can.

Spud is expected to be utilized in the ring more often in the near future.

Even though her character was dumped by Fandango in the story line, do not expect a face turn for Summer Rae. The blonde diva will be working as a heel when she returns to WWE after filming her parts in the upcoming Marine sequel. Summer will also be utilized more as a wrestler this time around as opposed to being a side character.

Christopher Daniels
"A unique athlete, it's funny because he was a book that was judged by his cover, for a very long time and it took a while to get him into TNA and we were always fighting to get him in. Everybody was like 'we gotta change his look and blah blah blah,' but finally when they gave him the chance, he showed them that you didn't need to judge him by the cover because he brings a unique intensity and a unique character to TNA and I think it would be a different TNA without him. He has changed the business." - Christopher Daniels discusses Samoa Joe

While he has been protesting through social media and threatening legal actions, the original Sin Cara has not actually gone after WWE yet. The belief is that he is just issuing empty threats, as the performer has now gone back to his Mistico name and character in Mexico. It appears that WWE might actually hold the rights to the Sin Cara name after all.

Many were wondering how WWE was going to handle the Paul Bearer induction speech since he is no longer alive. Management opted to use multiple people instead.

April 5, 2014
Godfather
Earlier this week, it was revealed that the Godfather was staying at the same hotel that WWE stars were staying at in New Orleans. Well, the rumor floating around is that he was brought in my company officials and might be utilized at Wrestlemania 30. Some are even saying that the Papa Shango character might be involved in a segment since voodoo is a part of the Louisiana culture.
April 4, 2014
Andre the Giant
As management is still trying to finalize the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal, there were rumors backstage that Ricardo Rodriguez was a candidate to work the match at Wrestlemania 30. However, it appears that WWE has moved away from that. Not only is Rodriguez being utilized as a commentator instead, the company also added Brad Maddox, an on screen character, to the match.
April 4, 2014
Andre the Giant
In a move that was not expected whatsoever, Brad Maddox announced on the Monday Night Raw kickoff show that he will be wrestling at Wrestlemania 30. The on screen character, who was actually trained as an in ring performer, will be one of the contestants in the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal on the pay per view.
March 31, 2014
Hulk Hogan
A lot of fans noticed something peculiar this week when the latest hall of fame induction at Wrestlemania 30 was announced by WWE on Monday Night Raw.

He will be inducting Scott Hall later down the line, perhaps with Kevin Nash and Hulk Hogan as the nWo.

Hunico
The odd saga between Sin Cara and WWE continued this week, as the masked performer was upset with Hunico portraying his character with Scooby Doo on Monday Night Raw. He even went as far as to send messages to Vince McMahon, Stephanie McMahon and Triple H via Twitter to vent his frustrations, but he wisely deleted the messages shortly afterwards.
March 25, 2014
Rock
Since he is one of the most known actors in the entire world right now, the Rock has been heavily sought by Hollywood studios for roles. Both DC and Marvel have expressed interest in the former WWE star playing a superhero in one of their upcoming films.

March 25, 2014
Corey Graves
Through Twitter, Corey Graves posted this message, where he mocks Total Divas. He joked that the performers are sharing their secrets with a national audience and expecting people not to know. This is keeping in line with his social media character, as the WWE developmental wrestler has also mocked the Shield and the company itself.
March 24, 2014
John Cena
In order to promote the movie, WWE will be having Scooby Doo on Monday Night Raw this week. It will not be the cartoon version, however. The company is opting to bring a real life costumed version of the character, and there is a very good chance that he could be involved with a segment. John Cena is a good candidate to be involved in that scene.
March 23, 2014

Randy Orton
In a rather interesting move, WWE gave Roman Reigns a clean victory over Randy Orton during a live event in Saudi Arabia. While some will dismiss it because it was not televised, management generally does not allow performers to go over their main event stars, even at house shows. This solidifies the rumors that WWE is pushing Reigns towards the top of the scene.
April 20, 2014
Randy Orton
For the longest time there, MVP was the longest reigning WWE United States Heavyweight Champion, but that mark looks to be broken soon if Dean Ambrose can hold on to the belt a little while longer. The Shield member rarely defends the belt, but WWE could opt to include it in the story line against Triple H, Randy Orton and Batista.
April 18, 2014
Batista
Even though the stable was just reunited, it appears that WWE is already planting seeds for an eventual breakup between Triple H, Batista and Randy Orton. Through an online poll, the company has been asking fans which of the three is the most dominant. The belief is that WWE will go with a story line where egos break apart the trio like it did several years back.
April 18, 2014
Roman Reigns
Even though Daniel Bryan and John Cena are both expected to work their respective matches at the pay per view, Extreme Rules 2014 will be built around a huge six man tag team match featuring Batista, Triple H, Randy Orton, Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose. WWE might even have Evolution and Shield closing out the show as well.
April 17, 2014

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.

WWE filled in his spot by having Triple H, Batista and Randy Orton reforming Evolution.

After beating Triple H, Randy Orton and Batista at Wrestlemania 30 for the heavyweight championship, a lot of fans wondered who WWE will choose to work with Bryan in his first month as champion.

April 6, 2014
John Cena
While he is still viewed as the top star in the company, John Cena will have plenty of time to watch the second half of Wrestlemania 30, as the former world heavyweight champion is scheduled to work against Bray Wyatt in the middle of the show.
