February 12, 2014
Barry Windham
A lot of positive things are happening for Bo Dallas as of late. In addition to finally being called back up to the main roster by WWE, he also recently got married. It's interesting to note that he did not take any time off of television for the ceremony. The belief is that several of his famous relatives, such as Bray Wyatt, Barry Windham and Mike Rotunda, were on hand for the event.
June 27, 2014
Ezekiel Jackson
Even though WWE refused to bring him back to the main roster after he recovered from his injuries, Ezekiel Jackson still had some value to the wrestling industry. Rumors surfaced that Jeff Jarrett was interested in bringing him on board with Global Force Wrestling, but word coming out of TNA is that the company is close to finalizing a contract with Jackson.
June 26, 2014
JTG
When WWE announced that they were releasing several performers from their main roster earlier this month, it caught a few of them by surprise. JTG, however, was well prepared for his release. He had been expecting it for quite some time now. There was an incident a while back where he received major backstage heat from management for speaking out about payment. Since then, his days with WWE were numbered. JTG recently revealed to TMZ that he had started planning around the release way before it took place.
June 23, 2014
Great Muta
While WWE did not feel that he was good enough for the main roster, Yoshi Tatsu still has a couple of suitors left in the industry. Shortly after his contract release, the Japanese star was contacted by All Japan Pro Wrestling and Wrestle-1, which is owned by the Great Muta, about returning to his home country. Rumors are floating around that Tatsu would prefer to stay in the United States, so he may explore his options here first before making a decision to return home.
June 23, 2014
Vince McMahon
With the company suffering such a public decline lately, Vince McMahon decided that WWE needed quite the shakeup if they wanted to get things back on track. Aside from releasing several longtime wrestlers, the company has also fired their lead writer. Jay Gibson was let go from his contract reportedly a day after WWE purged their main roster.
June 17, 2014
Tyson Kidd
Even though the mask has been designed and ordered, it looks like Tyson Kidd might not be doing that gimmick after all. Some were pushing for him to receive a new character and push on the main roster because of his long tenure with WWE. However, others are against the idea and want him to remain in WWE NXT to work with the developmental wrestlers.
June 12, 2014
Bo Dallas
It looks like the Bo Dallas push in WWE could be coming to an end soon. While he still has some supporters in the creative department, especially those who are amused by the gimmick, it is being said that Vince McMahon himself is not a fan. Rumors have it that McMahon was the one that quickly pulled the plug on his first stint on the main roster, so it would not come as a surprise if he decided to halt the push soon.
June 12, 2014
Yoshi Tatsu
While there is some sadness to every release today, the departure of Yoshi Tatsu has to be bothering several people left in WWE. He was well liked backstage, as he never got involved in any of the political stuff in the locker room. Tatsu kept a positive attitude since being removed from the main roster. He put in a lot of time and effort into improving himself in developmental, so he could get another chance to work Monday Night Raw and Smackdown. Unfortunately, though, it was not enough for WWE.
June 12, 2014
Great Khali
The 3MB stable is no longer the same, as WWE has confirmed the release of Jinder Mahal. Management simply did not feel that the group was relevant enough to keep Mahal around, even though he was reportedly one of the lower paid performers on the main roster. The peak of his tenure with WWE was when he was working with the Great Khali.
June 12, 2014
Kenta Kobayashi
If things go as planned, WWE could have themselves three new stars on the main roster by 2015. Prince Devitt, Kevin Steen and Kenta Kobayashi are rumored to have been signed to developmental contracts with the company. All three need work visas to be completed, but they're expected to start training before the summer ends. Devitt, Steen and Kobayashi are viewed as three of the top international stars available.
May 31, 2014
Ashley Flair
In a sign that she should be called up to the main roster in the near future, Ashley Flair has been given the WWE NXT Women's Championship. She defeated Natalya Neidhart to capture the belt. Management has long praised her athletic ability, and with her father, Ric Flair, coming back to Monday Night Raw soon, WWE could be looking to capitalize on that relationship.
May 30, 2014
Tyson Kidd
"It's a fresh coat of paint, a whole new start and a way for the WWE Universe to see Tyson Kidd in a different light than they have for the first few years I've been on the main roster. I think they'll see a more complete package. I'm a constant work in progress, always working on every aspect to get better and better. You're always going to see a different Tyson Kidd. Not that I haven't been in the past, but I'm more motivated, focused and driven than ever before." - Tyson Kidd talking about his work with developmental wrestlers in WWE NXT
May 28, 2014
Triple H
For those wondering about the status of Tyson Kidd within WWE, his new role has become a bit more clear within the company. Management likes having him work as an in ring trainer in developmental. The high flyer has been utilized in WWE NXT rather frequently. Triple H recently stated that he trusts Kidd in this role. Kidd might still be utilized on the main roster here and there, however.
May 28, 2014
Triple H
During a conference call today, Triple H reminded everyone that there is a major difference between being on the main roster and being on the WWE NXT roster. The executive vice president stated that just because something works in developmental, it does not mean that it is guaranteed to work on Monday Night Raw and Smackdown.
May 28, 2014
JoJo Offerman
In WWE, sometimes a good personality can help to combat backstage politics. JoJo Offerman appears to be doing that right now, as it has been rumored that management has been praising her for maintaining a good attitude and continuing to work hard down in developmental. Some felt that she would be resentful towards WWE for removing her from the main roster and from the Total Divas cast.
May 26, 2014
Damien Sandow
As a sign of how much the company values his overseas appeal, Sami Zayn was brought on the tour of Europe with the main roster. The developmental wrestler worked matches with Damien Sandow and was actually given the win. Zayn is starting to become a regular on these overseas tour, so it would not be a stretch to see WWE promoting him to Monday Night Raw soon.
May 25, 2014
Alex Riley
Last month, there were rumors that Alex Riley was contemplating a return to the ring, and it looks like that might be true. Over the weekend, he worked a live event match for WWE NXT, where Riley worked a triple threat main event match against Kalisto and Viktor. A lot of eyes will be on Riley to see if he wrestles more and gets another chance at the main roster.
May 17, 2014
Bo Dallas
After weeks and weeks of seeing his vignette on Monday Night Raw and Smackdown, Bo Dallas was penciled in to make his return to television this week, but WWE has now opted to delay the move. Instead of showing up on the next episode of Smackdown, Dallas will be coming back to the main roster on the following week. No word on who he will be feuding with yet.
May 13, 2014
Yoshi Tatsu
A peculiar scene took place at a WWE NXT live event this week. Yoshi Tatsu, who used to be an in ring performer on the main roster, worked as the announcer. While rumors have sprung up about a possible career change, the belief is that Tatsu is simply getting in some practice, as WWE plans on utilizing him on the upcoming tour of Japan.
May 10, 2014
Baron Corbin
In an interesting move, Jason Jordan and Baron Corbin are being brought in for Extreme Rules 2014 tonight. The two of them are also scheduled to be backstage at Monday Night Raw and Smackdown as well. There is a very good chance that the two WWE NXT performers will be used in some sort of role tonight, despite neither one of them being rumored for a main roster promotion.
May 4, 2014
Randy Orton
A picture of Randy Orton being pulled over by a police officer in Florida because the tint on his car was darker than the state allows. The WWE star posted the image on his Instagram account and stated that the authorities should have bigger fish to fry than to simply pull over someone with tint that is too dark.
July 21, 2014
CM Punk
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.
July 2, 2014
Triple H
On Monday Night Raw, WWE was quick to set up the main event for WWE Battleground 2014. John Cena will defend the heavyweight championship in a fatal four way match against Roman Reigns, Randy Orton and Kane. The move was set up by Triple H, who did not reveal his reasoning for putting Reigns, an adversary, into the title match instead of Seth Rollins.
July 1, 2014
Triple H
Even though we have another pay per view before then, plans are already being penciled in for Summerslam 2014. Roman Reigns is expected to have a big role on that show, but management isn't certain on the details just yet. Right now, WWE has either Randy Orton or Triple H putting over the former Shield member. Both feuds are expected to eventually happen during this year, but the order isn't certain.
July 1, 2014
Randy Orton
There was a bit of concern backstage for Randy Orton during the main event of Money in the Bank 2014. Early on in the match, he was struck by a ladder, which caused him to bleed pretty badly. Medical personnel and Triple H immediately tended to him to stop the wound. While there were some fears of a concussion, Orton opted to finish the match. Afterwards, he was given nearly a dozen staples to close the wound. Orton reportedly is undergoing some tests today to check for concussions.
June 30, 2014
Kane
A lot of action took place in the main event of Money in the Bank 2014. Fans went crazy as they saw creative signature spots from Randy Orton, Sheamus, John Cena, Roman Reigns, Alberto Del Rio, Kane and Bray Wyatt. However, it was Cena, much to the dismay of online WWE fans, who climbed the ladder and captured the heavyweight championship.
June 29, 2014
Roman Reigns
As of right now, WWE has a big match between Roman Reigns and Randy Orton penciled in for WWE Battleground 2014. The company could set up the feud during the title match at Money in the Bank 2014. There are some rumors floating around that Orton and Reigns could be battling for the title at Battleground, even though it's a bit early for the big push to begin.
June 28, 2014
John Cena
Rumors going around right now has WWE giving the world heavyweight championship to a heel at Money in the Bank 2014. The belief is that the company will set someone up to feud with John Cena and Daniel Bryan over the next few months. Antonio Cesaro has been rumored for a few weeks now, but some are skeptical of that because he hasn't been given a ton of momentum by WWE. Management will either hot shot the belt to Bray Wyatt or go with the safe route in Randy Orton.
June 16, 2014
Seth Rollins
When Seth Rollins turned on the Shield and joined Triple H and Randy Orton, fans wondered which of his former partners WWE was going to have him feuding with first. It appears that the choice is going to be Dean Ambrose. The two of them worked a match at a live event in Ontario this weekend, meaning that they could have been getting in some practice before working matches on television. Rollins will eventually feud with Roman Reigns down the line as well.
June 15, 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
Triple H
When he turned his back on Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns, many were under the impression that Seth Rollins would be joining Triple H and Randy Orton in Evolution. However, WWE is having second thoughts on that plan, as there are currently nothing concrete about him being an official member of the stable. Rollins will simply be utilized as a heel who is allied with the Authority.
June 12, 2014
Triple H
The story on Monday Night Raw this week was that Randy Orton was on vacation and not at the show. The reason for that is to generate more heel heat for him from WWE fans. His character gets a shot at the world title from Triple H without having to win a qualifying match like the other performers are doing. No word yet on whether or not Orton was actually given the night off, though.
June 10, 2014
Seth Rollins
In a pleasantly surprising move on Monday Night Raw, Seth Rollins did an unexpected heel turn and betrayed the Shield. As Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns were preparing to face off with Triple H and Randy Orton, Rollins shocked the WWE Universe by nailing his longtime partners with several steel chair shots. He stood tall with Orton and HHH afterwards to end the episode.
June 2, 2014
Triple H
On Monday Night Raw, WWE did a story line where Batista quit the company after an opening segment interview with Triple H.

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
Randy Orton
During the post show for Payback 2014, Roman Reigns told fans that he might have suffered torn triceps during the big main event match involving Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins, Triple H, Randy Orton and Batista. Since the interview took place in front of cameras, rumors have it that WWE was just selling the brutality of the match. Reigns is expected to be at Monday Night Raw later on today.
June 2, 2014
Batista
A surprising buzz was created last night when fans made mention of Batista wearing blue ring gear at Payback 2014. At one point, it even become the top trend on Twitter, a fact that Michael Cole proudly boasted to fans. Batista was not nearly as amused, as he took to the social media site today to bash fans for focusing on the color of his outfit, as opposed to the tremendous performance that he, Randy Orton, Triple H, Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns put on.
June 2, 2014
Seth Rollins
In a rather surprising move, WWE had the Shield win convincingly against Evolution. Batista and Randy Orton were the first two performers to be eliminated from the main event match at Payback 2014, but both provided interference for Triple H after their eliminations. After taking a brutal beating, Roman Reigns picked up the win for his team. Many expected Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins to be eliminated during the match, but WWE opted to give them a dominant ending.
June 2, 2014
Triple H
A lot of people are hoping that WWE doesn't rush the Roman Reigns push, and it looks like the company is taking the slow approach. While he's eventually going to get his big time feud against Triple H in, there are now rumors that Reigns will be moved into a feud with Randy Orton next. Since Orton has been one of the top stars over the last decade, this should provide Reigns with a bit more credibility.
May 30, 2014
Sheamus
For weeks now, people backstage in WWE have been toying around with the idea of doing a heel turn with Sheamus, in hopes that it rejuvenates the former world heavyweight champion and brings him closer to the main event scene again. The idea being tossed around by WWE now is to add him join Triple H and Randy Orton in Evolution when Batista takes his break to promote his new movie.
May 9, 2014
Seth Rollins
While the early rumors were that Evolution and the Shield would be doing a rematch at Payback 2014, word coming out of backstage now is that WWE is thinking about handling things a little bit differently. Management is toying around with the idea of doing three separate singles matches involving Batista, Triple H, Randy Orton, Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns at the pay per view.
May 7, 2014
Bray Wyatt
During the Smackdown taping, it was announced that there would be a big Elimination Chamber 2014 rematch on Monday Night Raw featuring Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan taking on Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose. The belief is that this is being done to further the friction between Ambrose and Reigns.
February 26, 2014
Batista
During the Smackdown taping, Batista opened up the show and addressed the audience. Dolph Ziggler came out and issued a challenge. Batista laughs at him, so Ziggler gives him a drop kick. The match itself, was set for later in the show, was a quick squash. It should be noted that Batista played the heel role throughout the match.
February 26, 2014
Big E Langston
In a rather interesting move during the Smackdown taping, WWE did a number one contender's match to determine a new challenger for Big E Langston and the Intercontinental Championship.
