As of right now, there are still over 1000 tickets available for Extreme Rules 2014, including several expensive seats on the floor.

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.

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 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.

Randy Orton
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.

July 21, 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.

Randy Orton
A lot of action took place in the main event of 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
Roman Reigns
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
Batista
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
Roman Reigns
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
Triple H
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.

May 9, 2014
Triple H
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.

May 5, 2014
Triple H
When WWE was scripting the finish to the big six man tag team match between the Shield and Evolution at Extreme Rules 2014, they wanted to give fans something to remember. They also wanted things to make sense. In order to clear the ring for Roman Reigns and Batista, someone came up with the idea for the remaining four guys to fight in the stands. In order to explain why they never went back to the ring, WWE had Seth Rollins hurling into Triple H, Randy Orton and Dean Ambrose from the balcony in the stands.

Brie Bella
It wasn't enough for WWE to generate some publicity by inviting Michael Sam, an openly gay football player for the Dallas Cowboys, to Monday Night Raw, the company is taking it a step further by bringing in Jerry Springer, who gained a huge amount of fame by hosting a rowdy show featuring dysfunctional relationships, to moderate a discussion between Nikki Bella and Brie Bella next week.
September 2, 2014
Batista
Since his movie career has taken off thanks to the success of Guardians of the Galaxy, the widespread belief in the industry is that Batista is unlikely to return to WWE beyond a special appearance. During a recent interview, the former world heavyweight champion hinted that he would be a bit more inclined to return if management gave him more creative control over his character and story line.
September 2, 2014
Vince McMahon
While WWE will continue to put the full court press on, it appears very unlikely that Michael Sam will be making an appearance on Monday Night Raw for Vince McMahon. The defensive end from Missouri University is currently in the process of signing a contract with the Dallas Cowboys after being released by the St Louis Rams. Once the deal goes through, he will more than likely be prohibited from being involved with WWE.
September 2, 2014
Batista
A couple of years ago, there were quite a bit of rumors floating around that Batista and Bobby Lashley were set to fight one another at an MMA show.

There was interest because of the potential draw of wrestling fans, but things never got to the point where there were serious discussions.
September 2, 2014
Stephanie McMahon
On Monday Night Raw, many witnessed a brilliant publicity stunt that WWE launched when they invited Michael Sam, an openly gay football player who is trying to find an NFL team this season, to make an appearance on their television show next week.

September 2, 2014
Chris Jericho
Where there's smoke, there's usually fire. Rumors have persisted for quite some time now that there is still backstage heat towards Jim Ross in WWE. There is some new evidence to support that claim. Ross recently revealed that the company has not approved any of their performers to be a guest on his podcast show, where Steve Austin and Chris Jericho have had plenty of WWE personnel, including Triple H himself, doing interviews for them.
September 1, 2014
AJ Styles
As long as he remains popular with fans, there are always going to be rumors about AJ Styles going to WWE. However, during a recent interview, the former world heavyweight champion brushed off the idea, stating that it was not the right time. Styles also noted that the company was going through some budget cuts as of late, so there is little chance that WWE would match what he was making in New Japan at the moment.
September 1, 2014
AJ Lee
When you're a top star for WWE, you lose a good amount of privacy. Fans want in on your private life. Having done the job for years, CM Punk was already well aware of this. However, it reared its ugly nose in his life again this week. A photo from his wedding with AJ Lee was leaked online, and that thoroughly upset Punk. He even posted a message on Twitter about the matter.
September 1, 2014
Batista
WWE decisions are sometimes garbage, according to Batista. During a recent podcast interview with Chris Jericho, the former world heavyweight champion stated that he was disgusted by how the creative department utilized Daniel Bryan after he was put over at Wrestlemania 30. Batista felt that Bryan should have been allowed to sell the injuries from the previous night because it would have added to his lovable underdog character.
August 31, 2014
Jake Roberts
Rumors are floating around that Jake Roberts is in a coma. A large reason for that is because his lawyer mentioned that he was in a "coma like state", and people misconstrued that for the WWE legend being in an actual coma. Kizarny also took to Facebook to further explain the situation. He stated that Roberts is heavily sedated because the procedure to combat pneumonia is pretty painful. Kizarny also reiterated that Roberts was not in a coma.
August 31, 2014
Hulk Hogan
As a few people are already aware, Hulk Hogan has been generating some hype recently by teasing fans that he wants to make a return to the WWE ring for one final match. The former world heavyweight champion has teased that he wants to work against John Cena. Well, some fuel has been added to that fire, as Cena himself is now starting to tease the match as well. The belief is that the two of them are simply promoting the upcoming Wrestlemania 31 pay per view.
August 30, 2014
Naomi Knight
Not a whole lot of fans are aware of this, but Naomi Knight has been missing in action for WWE for a couple of weeks now.

Naomi last worked a tag team match on an episode of Monday Night Raw at the end of July.
August 30, 2014

August 30, 2014
Bully Ray
Reports surfaced not too long ago that Bully Ray was leaving TNA, as his contract was set to expire and a new deal could not be reached between the two sides. Apparently, he is going to remain on good terms with management, as the former world heavyweight champion is still being advertised for Bound For Glory 2014. Team 3D is scheduled to be inducted into the hall of fame that evening, but it would not come as a shock if Bully ended up working a match on the pay per view.
August 30, 2014
Batista
We have ourselves another sign that Batista might be putting WWE in his rear view mirror. During a podcast interview with Chris Jericho, the former world heavyweight champion openly bashed the method in which the company handled his return.

August 29, 2014

The WWE star revealed some details about an incident that took place when the Rock was revealed as the special guest host of Wrestlemania 27. Hornswoggle stated that the Rock confused him for a Make a Wish kid. Rock apparently tapped him on the shoulders and asked if he had a good time at the show.
August 29, 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. TMZ does a good job of covering wrestling, so they were on the ball with the Roberts story. Huffington Post and USA Today, which does not feature much about the industry, even covered the story.
August 29, 2014

Steve Austin
There's been another casualty in WWE, thanks to the company losing millions of dollars this year. Tough Enough has been taken off of life support and has now been officially scrapped. Management was hoping to do another season of the show, and they were still trying to get Steve Austin to jump back on board. However, after severely reducing the available budget for Tough Enough, officials decided that it would not work out with the limited amount of funding.
August 28, 2014
Daniel Bryan
It looks like Daniel Bryan will not be joining WWE in Europe after all. The company has decided to pull advertisement featuring the former world heavyweight champion from upcoming live events in Europe. Initially, management wanted him to make appearances on those shows in order to draw in more of an audience. However, they have changed their minds and are allowing Bryan to remain at home and focus on recover.
