Randy Orton
A surprising buzz was created last night when fans made mention of Batista wearing blue ring gear at Payback 2014.

October 19, 2014

In a rather peculiar move, WWE opted to inform the local media in Mexico that the Sin Cara was being performed by the original wrestler. That is not the case at all, since he was released some time ago. Many in Mexico are already aware of that fact and know that he is currently working for AAA under a different name. No word yet on why WWE opted to make that claim.

September 26, 2014
Alberto Del Rio
Trash to one man might be viewed as a treasure to another. When Alberto Del Rio was fired from WWE due to a backstage incident, AAA salivated at the thought of building their company around him. When the two sides were legally allowed to sign a contract, management quickly jumped on it and made Del Rio the face of their company. Thus far, they have been pleased with the results because Del Rio carries himself extremely well, especially during media interviews.

They constantly mentioned the service, and they had several of their performers utilizing it to interact with the fans. WWE invested approximately $5000 into the company and signed a two year agreement. Stephanie McMahon was even on their board of directors. It looks like the deal is now over, as reports has surfaced that WWE was not interested in renewing the contract.

September 2, 2014
Jake Roberts
In a sign of just how popular and mainstream Jake Roberts was during the 1980s, several media outlets provided coverage of the WWE legend being sent to the hospital this week.

Management does not want to run the risk of starting a legal battle with Del Rio.
August 17, 2014
Austin Aries
Back in July, Austin Aries decided to go silent on Twitter because he was protesting the decision by TNA to allow fans to vote on the return of the six sided ring.

Aries is even promoting Impact Wrestling on there, so it looks like he's back on good terms with the company.

Diamond Dallas Page
With so many people praising the yoga system that Diamond Dallas Page created, it's pretty easy to find compliments and feel good stories on social media sites. The latest person to give him praise is Jesse Sorensen, the former TNA star who seriously injured his neck during a match. Sorensen stated that the DDP system helped him get his neck back in order.
August 16, 2014
Roman Reigns
One of the things that will help Roman Reigns in his quest to win the WWE title is the fact that he has a good amount of sex appeal. It was one of the first things that Triple H noticed when he met Reigns. The company keeps track of what fans are saying through social media, and they're easily able to see that a lot of female fans are attracted to his looks. That might help draw in the female demographics.
August 16, 2014
Alberto Del Rio
It looks like Alberto Del Rio will not be joining TNA or Global Force Wrestling after all. During a media appearance, the former world heavyweight champion revealed that he cannot wrestle in the United States for approximately a year.

October 22, 2014
Randy Orton
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

October 12, 2014

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.

September 26, 2014
Rob Van Dam
Reports surfaced over the last couple of days that Chris Jericho was going to be working his last show for WWE at Night of Champions 2014 in a match against Randy Orton. There is now speculation that the former world heavyweight champion might stick around shortly after that before leaving, similar to what Rob Van Dam did before taking his break from WWE recently.
September 17, 2014
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
Randy Orton
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.

Jericho has a tour with Fozzy coming soon, and he will be traveling around to promote his new book.
September 15, 2014
Roman Reigns
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
Randy Orton
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
Triple H
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.

July 21, 2014
John Cena
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.
