Rob Van Dam
While it is something that a lot of fans had assumed was going to happen anyways, Rob Van Dam recently revealed that he will return to WWE again some day. He stated that he has earned the right to dictate his own schedule and will go back whenever he is ready. RVD also stated that he will not work for another wrestling promotion until he returns to WWE.
September 28, 2014
Chavo Guerrero
As some of you already know, Chavo Guerrero is key backstage figure in that new Lucha Underground promotion that was recently launched. He is already receiving criticism for his work, as many people feel that the company is making a mistake by having high flying and quick paced performers slowing down to a manner similar to what WWE uses.
September 27, 2014
Dixie Carter
Generally, when you run a nationally known wrestling promotion, you try to lock down your performers to prevent them from being hurt elsewhere. TNA was doing that for a while, but Dixie Carter had to make some changes, in order to keep her company afloat. Performers are now given a bit more freedom to work on the independent wrestling circuit to compensate for the lower paying contracts.
September 26, 2014
Alberto Del Rio
Showing that there is life after WWE, Alberto Del Rio has announced that he will be doing a small world tour in the upcoming weeks. The former world heavyweight champion, who was recently given his release from WWE after a backstage incident, will be working shows in Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Puerto Rico and Japan. The initial belief was that WWE would prevent Del Rio from working for another promotion for the next year.
September 4, 2014
Jim Ross
There is a pay per view coming up in October called BattleGrounds MMA. Any wrestling fan watching the event will recognize a familiar voice calling the action. The promotion has signed up legendary WWE commentator Jim Ross for the show. He will be joined by recently retired UFC star Chael Sonnen for the event, which is taking place in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
September 4, 2014
Rey Mysterio
When TripleMania ended, fans in attendance were treated to a video of Rey Mysterio. The masked legend informed the audience that he would be back in AAA very soon. Unfortunately, though, part of that video was accidentally aired to people who purchased the pay per view. Since that happened, there is now a chance that WWE could pursue legal actions against the promotion.
August 18, 2014
Konnan
As many are already aware, Konnan has been having issues with his hips over the last couple of years. It's the reason why he has been forced to stay away from the ring. The former WCW star revealed that he wants one final match after his next surgery. Since he is involved with AAA, the belief is that his match will be held for that promotion. No word yet on who he wants as his final opponent.
August 18, 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. The belief is that he breached his contract with WWE when the backstage incident took place. That reportedly enables the company to ban him from working for another wrestling promotion.
August 16, 2014
Alberto Del Rio
While there are uncertainty as to whether or not Alberto Del Rio is under the 90 day no compete clause with WWE since he is rumored to be appearing at the big AAA pay per view this weekend, we now know that Ricardo Rodriguez cannot make an appearance for a television promotion. He informed fans via Twitter that he would not be able to make an appearance at TripleMania this upcoming Sunday.
August 12, 2014
Dixie Carter
While rumors of their demise are swirling rapidly around the promotion, TNA has opted to continue with business. Dixie Carter has announced that the company has signed Chris Melendez to a multiple year contract. The Purple Heart award recipient only has one leg because of injuries suffered while serving the country in Afghanistan. The move should bring about some positive press for TNA.
July 30, 2014
Hulk Hogan
Since they're paying him a tremendous amount of money, Hulk Hogan has been traveling the globe for WWE. After being the unofficial featured attraction in Japan, the former world heavyweight champion has headed down to Mexico to do some promotion work for the company. WWE is doing a tour of the country soon, and they're hoping that Hogan can help spike interest much like he did in Japan.
July 22, 2014
Vince McMahon
While the company publicly states that they do not view any wrestling promotion as competition, the actions being taken by WWE at Wrestlemania 31 tell a different story. Vince McMahon and his staff have worked diligently to prevent independent wrestling companies from being able to do shows in the San Francisco and San Jose areas during the same weekend as their big event. A lot of the buildings in the area have agreed to boycott independent promoters from renting the place.
July 10, 2014
Rock
It is no secret that WWE would love for the Rock to be the centerpiece attraction at Wrestlemania 31. However, the possibility of that happening is becoming more and more unclear by the day. The studios have decided to move the release date of Fast and Furious 7, which features Rock in a big role, up a bit. It will now be shown in the theaters a few days after Wrestlemania. That means that the Rock will be needed to travel the world to do promotion for the film. His availability to WWE is in question.
July 10, 2014
Jeff Jarrett
When news initially broke out that Jeff Jarrett was starting a new wrestling promotion, all fingers pointed to Toby Keith as his financial backer. The country music singer is a big fan of wrestling and good friend of Jarrett. However, reports are surfacing now that Keith is not involved with Global Force Wrestling. There are rumors that the financial backer is someone that Jarrett knows through his NASCAR connections.
June 29, 2014
Jeff Hardy
Earlier this week, Jeff Hardy and Jeff Jarrett went on a vacation together with their families in tow. While that might come as a surprise to a lot of fans, this is not the first time that the two families have done this. Apparently, Hardy and Jarrett have grown rather close over the years. That closeness has led to rumors about Hardy bolting TNA after his contract expires to join Jarrett in his new Global Force Wrestling promotion.
June 23, 2014
Jeff Jarrett
While the promotion has yet to obtain a television contract, Jeff Jarrett is still constantly working behind the scenes to set things up for Global Force Wrestling. It has just been announced that the company has partnered up with New Japan Pro Wrestling for some sort of talent exchange program. Jarrett has maintained that he wants an international feel to his new promotion, and this is a very good step in that direction.
June 21, 2014
JTG
If you're a big fan of Cryme Tyme, then get on the phone with the independent wrestling promotion to ask them to book the former WWE tag team. Now that JTG has been given a release by the company, he has decided to reunite with Shad Gaspard, so that the two of them can be booked as a unit on the indies circuit. Combined, they have much more name value, so they can command a higher contract from promoters.
June 19, 2014
Alex Riley
Booker T is running his first internet pay per view for his wrestling promotion, and Reality of Wrestling will have plenty of WWE presence there. Josh Mathews has signed on to help Booker do commentary for the evening, while Alex Riley will be making his return to the ring for a match. Theodore Long, who was recently released by WWE, will be on hand to act as the on screen general manager at the PPV.
June 19, 2014
Vince McMahon
Despite being the biggest wrestling promotion in the world, WWE is not excluded from cost cutting measures from time to time. Vince McMahon is currently trying to trim approximately $20 million a year off of the company's budget for production. Changes are being made to the stages and the presentation of the shows. WWE is also trying to slash the budget in other areas as well.
June 17, 2014
Jeff Jarrett
Over the last several months, Jeff Jarrett has been pursuing a television deal for his new promotion. While there was some interest in Global Force Wrestling by the networks, it appears that things have slowed down tremendously for Jarrett because of the issues going on in WWE. News about their stocks declining hit the mainstream media, so a lot of industries are leery of professional wrestling at the moment.
June 14, 2014
Randy Savage
Today is a sad one for professional wrestling fans. It marks the third year anniversary of the death of Randy Savage, one of the biggest legends in WWE history. The former Intercontinental Champion passed away after suffering a heart attack and crashing into a tree while driving. Much like before his death, fans have been begging WWE to induct him into the hall of fame.
May 20, 2014
Randy Savage
While much of the wrestling world has converged in New Orleans for Wrestlemania 30 this week, Melina Perez is one of the more notable names missing from the events. She has not been booked for WrestleCon, even though the likes of Fifi the Maid, Tammy Sytch and Gorgeous George, the former girlfriend of Randy Savage, are making appearances.
April 5, 2014
Randy Savage
In a rather interesting bit of news, Lanny Poffo was flown into New Orleans by WWE this week, and the belief is that he will definitely be backstage at Wrestlemania 30. Some are speculating that his presence is a sign that WWE will finally induct his brother Randy Savage into the hall of fame at Wrestlemania 31 next year in California.
April 4, 2014
Randy Savage

The world of professional wrestling has lost one of its most beloved stars of all time this morning, as Randy Savage has died. The legendary WWE star suffered a sudden heart attack as he was driving with his wife. The vehicle veered out of control across the road and struck a tree.

May 20, 2011
Randy Savage
Ricky Steamboat defeated Randy Savage in a classic match at Wrestlemania 3 to capture the WWE Intercontinental Championship, but that reign did not last too long. Just two months later, he has now lost the title to the Honky Tonk Man at a television taping in Buffalo, New York. Steamboat is taking some time off.
June 2, 1987
Eric Bischoff
Rumors have spread like wildfire about the possibility of Eric Bischoff joining Jeff Jarrett in his new Global Force Wrestling promotion. The speculations were started when a picture surfaced online of the two of them, along with Karen Jarrett, hanging out together. Since Bischoff has some stroke in Hollywood, a partnership between the two sides could greatly benefit GFW.
September 21, 2014
Damien Sandow
If you watched WWE NXT Takeover last night, you know that Tyler Breeze failed to win the heavyweight championship. However, management might have something better for him. Reports have surfaced that Breeze is on the verge of being given a promotion to the main roster, where the cocky character will be joining the entourage of the Miz, which already features Damien Sandow.
September 12, 2014
Evan Bourne
It is no secret that Evan Bourne wants to work for a major wrestling promotion after being given a release from WWE. However, it is not happening in Mexico. The high flyer reportedly turned down a contract offer from AAA. There are rumors that his younger brother was offered a deal as well. The belief is that Bourne feels that the contract is too restrictive and not financially rewarding enough.
September 3, 2014
Ashley Flair
There are rumors floating around that a title change could be taking place in WWE NXT very soon. Bayley might be given the women's title during the middle part of September. Reports are floating around that Ashley Flair is on the verge of being given a promotion to the main roster in about a month, so she would need to drop the belt to someone else in developmental.
August 28, 2014
Alberto Del Rio
The hot rumors right now is that WWE is going to prevent Alberto Del Rio from working for another wrestling promotion in the United States for the next year. In exchange, the company will continue to pay him, even though he has been given a release. That has led fans to speculate as to how much money he will be given. The belief is that it will not be the full amount of the contract, as he will not be paid for working live events.
August 21, 2014
Alberto Del Rio
Everyone in the industry now knows that Alberto Del Rio and Rey Mysterio made appearances for AAA at the TripleMania pay per view. The belief is that WWE will be pursuing legal actions against the promotion, as management has been very quiet backstage about the incident. That has led many to believe that lawyers have advised them not to discuss the situation.
August 19, 2014
Brock Lesnar
It will be interesting to see how WWE handles the promotion of the world heavyweight championship over the next few weeks. Brock Lesnar is not scheduled to be back on television for approximately a month. John Cena, who is returning next week, is expected to get his rematch story line. Paul Heyman is great at what he does, but management will be curious to see how the audience reacts to a missing champion.
August 19, 2014
Rey Mysterio
While the company was hoping that the legendary masked performer would make an appearance at TripleMania on Sunday, AAA is reportedly backing away from Rey Mysterio. The promotion does not want to be involved in a contract tampering lawsuit with WWE. As of right now, there is a bit of a dispute between Mysterio and Vince McMahon on their deal. Until that is cleared, AAA will not be contacting Mysterio.
August 16, 2014
Kevin Steen
While online fans are quite aware that Kevin Steen was one of the best performers on the independent wrestling circuit over the last couple of years, WWE is not treating him any more special than other performers that they have in the developmental program. Management views him as just another wrestler, and they're going to keep pushing for him to lose weight before giving him much of a chance at a promotion.
August 13, 2014
AJ Lee
Rumors are going around that Ashley Flair has moved to the front of the line for a promotion from developmental to the main roster in WWE. There are some roadblocks in her way, though. Total Divas is set to become a major focus again very soon, so the writers will put an emphasis on them when writing Monday Night Raw. Flair might also have to wait a bit longer if Paige picks up more momentum in her feud with AJ Lee.
August 12, 2014
Jeff Jarrett
Since his contract with WWE has now officially ended, rumors about Jim Ross and his future in professional wrestling have started heating up again. Since the longtime commentator does not want to replace Taz or Mike Tenay in TNA, much of the speculations has been geared towards him joining up with Jeff Jarrett in Global Force Wrestling. Interest within the industry towards the new promotion has grown since Jarrett has been able to secure several deals across the globe.
July 29, 2014
Jeff Jarrett
Rumors are floating around that one of the reasons why TNA brought back the six sided ring, under the guise of fan voting, was because they wanted to beat Jeff Jarrett to the punch. Talks within the industry have Jarrett utilizing the unique ring when his new promotion, Global Force Wrestling, starts up. No word yet on whether or not Jarrett still plans on using the six sided ring now that TNA has brought it back.
July 4, 2014
Booker T
Next month, Booker T will be holding the first ever internet pay per view event for his Reality of Wrestling promotion, and he's calling in a big name to help him out. Diamond Dallas Page has signed on to make an appearance at the show. The former WCW champion is unlikely to be wrestling at the event, but he could take part in a physical altercation in an in ring segment.
June 9, 2014
Sin Cara
If you're still a fan of Sin Cara and want to keep up with the former WWE star, he is now going by the new name of Myzteziz. However, the masked performer is only using that name in AAA. Rumors have it that the promotion wanted to avoid a legal battle with WWE, so they insisted that he come up with a new name that they can trademark. Sin Cara will continue using the name and gimmick outside of that promotion, though.
June 5, 2014
Great Khali
Since he knows that his career in WWE isn't going to last forever, the Great Khali has reportedly been looking towards life after leaving the company for quite some time now. Those speculations gained more credibility this week when a professional wrestler in India told the media that he has been working with Khali to start a new promotion in their home country.
May 27, 2014
Dixie Carter
Rumors are going around right now that there have been several TNA performers who have contacted Jeff Jarrett to gauge interest in working for his new promotion, Global Force Wrestling. It is being said that the wrestlers are nervous about Dixie Carter not being able to get a new television deal with Spike TV. Both sides are still in negotiations.
May 17, 2014
Jeff Jarrett
When Jeff Jarrett chose the name Global Force Wrestling for his new promotion, it was done with the intention of letting the world know that he wanted performers from all corners of the globe. On June 1, Jarrett will be doing a GFW event in Ontario, where he and Scott D'Amore will be looking to sign a couple of the top Canadian wrestlers for the new promotion.
May 14, 2014
Christopher Daniels
"I figure that anything that Jeff Jarrett puts his mind to when it comes to creating a promotion has the potential to be very formidable in terms of the landscape of pro wrestling. Just look what he did with TNA. If he has the right people behind him when it comes to finances, then Jeff is creative enough to make something happen. So it's definitely on my radar, just like I think it's on everyone's radar at this point. Everyone's just waiting to see exactly what Global Force Wrestling is going to be. We have to see where it is, what it is, and who is going to be involved. Jeff is starting to answer slowly but surely." - Christopher Daniels discusses the possibility of joining GFW
May 14, 2014
Dixie Carter
Rumors have been floating around a bit about the future of TNA, as the company has yet to sign a new deal with Spike to keep Impact Wrestling on the network. Their marketing agency, UTA, is focusing their attention on pitching the promotion to other networks at this time. The belief is that they want more leverage in negotiations with Spike, so they want to come back with various offers for Dixie Carter.
May 14, 2014
Alex Wright
After a dozen years of staying away from the United States, Alex Wright made a special trip to America as a guest of WWE. Management flew him in from Germany and had him acting as a guest trainer at the WWE Performance Center.

April 13, 2014
Randy Savage
"Right before he passed, we ran into each other at a doctor's office. He had gotten remarried to his high school sweetheart. He was smiling and grinning. He was the old Macho Man I had always known. We hugged each other and talked on the phone a few times. We were planning to have a barbecue at his mom's house, and a couple days before that, he passed away." - Hulk Hogan discusses the end of his backstage heat with Randy Savage
April 1, 2014
Randy Savage
Back when he was a star for WWE during the late 1980s, Randy Savage made a discovery that would have a bit of an impact on the professional wrestling industry. The former world heavyweight champion was the one that discovered Sid Vicious, whom he convinced to give the industry a try. Savage sent Vicious to train with Tojo Yamamoto to start his career.
March 22, 2014
Randy Savage
While Monday Night Raw was being hosted in Green Bay, there are rumors springing up from the event that security had removed a fan who was holding up a Randy Savage sign. A couple of witnesses in the audience made note of that, and it even got to the point where it was being discussed on a local radio show.
February 28, 2014
Jay Lethal
Taking heavy influences from the design of the Grand Theft Auto video game, Jay Lethal has an awesome new shirt. It basically features him in cartoon mode, where he is Undertaker, Hulk Hogan and Randy Savage. It also appears that his character is wearing the mask previously worn by Sami Zayn as well.
February 9, 2014
Randy Savage

While many fans are clamoring for the legendary performer to finally be honored with an induction, it does not appear that Randy Savage will be featured during the WWE Hall of Fame ceremony this year. There has been very little to no talk about inducting the Macho Man.

January 18, 2014
Kevin Nash

"Well I think in Randy's case, I think Randy he was pissed. I don't think he really wanted to go in. That's just my observation from a far. I never heard that from Randy but I'm sure now that the great Randy Savage has passed on, at some point he will be put in there. But I think there was--you have to accept. You have to go there and show up. And there was some heat there. And I think it was just about to get fixed too, just like the Warrior had a lot of heat there. I think he absolutely would've gone in. Maybe this year cause Randy was just coming out--when he died, Randy was just starting to come out. About to do a comic-con and stuff; do some autograph signings and stuff. So I think you would have seen him in there. Right after; not too long after his death, I don't think it had to happen right away but I would imagine that Randy will be in there. And I believe that Jake Roberts will get in. I think I'll get in. I think there will be a lot of guys that will get in there from Kevin Nash, Scott Hall. I think a lot of those guys will get in. Sometimes it just takes time and I think that Jake doing his turn around that he's done over these last 16-17 months--or 16 months I think it is--people are buzzing everywhere about Jake. So I think at some point, it would be awesome if it was this year but who knows? You never know."

January 17, 2014
Randy Savage

"The toughest for me was the one that brought the best out of me, out of my character. That's different from 'Who's the toughest guy, who's the most badass opponent I ever faced?'. The toughest opponent for me would have been Randy Savage, the Macho Man, because his intensity paralleled mine. He became totally caught up in his character, which was a requisite to success in the business at the time."

Kurt Angle
While the wrestling world still awaits the big announcement from Kurt Angle, the former world heavyweight champion has revealed some details on his next contract. It will only be a one year deal, as the Olympic gold medalist believes that his time is running out as an in ring performer. Angle stated that he wants to give 100% during the final year and give the best performances that he can before retiring.
September 29, 2014
Jim Duggan
Some very interesting news coming out of a wrestling convention in Charlotte last month. Jim Duggan revealed to fans in attendance that he and Roddy Piper were working on getting a reality television show for themselves. Quite a lofty goal for the WWE legends, as there probably is not a whole lot of network executives who are interested in such a show.
September 29, 2014
CM Punk
If you're a big fan of Hulk Hogan, then you do not want to miss Monday Night Raw this week. The WWE legend and Jimmy Hart have flown into Chicago for the event. Hogan is definitely expected to make an on screen appearance. Some are speculating that his presence is needed to help promote the company's fight against breast cancer, while others think that he is there to help control the audience from going overboard with their chants for CM Punk.
September 29, 2014
Goldust
When Goldust decided to make his return to WWE, he was not expecting to be on the road as a full time performer on a long term deal. He thought he was going to have a lot more time to spend with his family, but plans were altered, so he can continue wrestling. The veteran performer decided to focus on his family this week by taking a vacation from WWE and relaxing in Hawaii.
September 28, 2014
Big E Langston
WWE is still having trouble figuring out what they want to do with the stable of Xavier Woods, Kofi Kingston and Big E Langston. However, one question appears to have been answered. Woods will be a wrestling member of the group and not just a manager, as many fans have speculated based on a couple of his appearances on Monday Night Raw earlier this year.
September 28, 2014
Great Muta
While the entire card is far from being finalized, TNA has revealed two matches that will definitely be taking place at the pay per view.

September 27, 2014
Gail Kim
Jimmy Suzuki is the guy playing a big role on deciding the card for Bound For Glory 2014. He recently made a comment about there possibly not being enough room for a Knockouts match, and that drew the ire of TNA fans. Suzuki explained what he meant and revealed that he has quite a bit of history with booking women. Gail Kim came out and defended Suzuki as well, as he played a part in her career early on.
September 27, 2014
Rock
While the speculations had long been out there, the Rock has finally confirmed that he will be starring in The Janson Directive.

Rock revealed to WWE fans that he will be producing and writing the movie as well.
September 27, 2014
Jack Swagger
Wade Barrett hasn't been on television in quite some time now because he suffered a shoulder injury during a match with Jack Swagger. He was recently up in Toronto, so he sought the help of Trish Stratus, a former WWE diva who now runs a successful yoga business. Barrett stated that the workout session with Trish helped his shoulder feel a bit better.
September 27, 2014
CM Punk
In a move that appears to be very petty, WWE muted the audience reaction when CM Punk was revealed for the upcoming WWE 2K15 roster. Management initially kept things cordial between the two sides when Punk first left because they were hoping that he would consider a return. However, now that a reunion is very unlikely to happen, some bitterness has started to show.
September 27, 2014
Paul Heyman
As many fans already know, Lisa Marie Varon, who worked in TNA as Tara and in WWE as Victoria, owns and operates a very successful restaurant in the Chicago area. She generated some media attention for her establishment this week when she revealed that she was introducing a burger named after Paul Heyman soon. It will feature swiss cheese, pastrami, sauerkraut and Thousand Island dressing.
September 27, 2014
AJ Lee
A bit of buzz was created earlier this week when it was reported that AJ Lee was among the many female celebrities who have had their nude pictures leaked online by hacker. Unfortunately for WWE fans, however, those rumors were false. The divas champion herself even commented on the rumors through social media. She did so in her usual playful way.
September 27, 2014
Bray Wyatt
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.

Among the notable newer performers in the top ten were Bray Wyatt and Roman Reigns.
September 26, 2014
Hulk Hogan
A little bit of controversy was stirred this week when the media got a hold of the dress code implemented by the Hulk Hogan restaurant in Florida. When the WWE legend found out that some people were offended by it, he called the owner of the place and demanded that they take it down. TMZ revealed that Hogan doesn't actually own the establish. He simply licenses out his name for them to use.
September 26, 2014
Santino Marella
By now, a lot of people are aware that Santino Marella is in the process of trying to make a comeback to professional wrestling after being forced to retire due to a severe neck injury. The former Intercontinental Champion has now revealed that he hopes to be able to make a return to WWE in about six months. The belief is that the door is open for him to come back since management views his comedic routine as an asset.
September 26, 2014
Jake Roberts
Earlier this month, professional wrestling fans were given quite the scare when Jake Roberts passed out on a plane ride and had to spend a couple of days in the hospital. While he has recovered tremendously from that ordeal, the WWE legend has informed fans that there are still some minor issues with his brains that doctors are tending to.
September 26, 2014
Batista
One name that will definitely not be at Hell in a Cell 2014 is Batista. He will be busy next month doing a new movie with acting legend Robert De Niro. The two will star in a film called Bus 657, which will be centered around a heist. Batista will be playing a greedy character who helps his coworker rob a bank to pay for health treatments for his daughter.
September 25, 2014
Chris Jericho
During his latest podcast interview show, Chris Jericho revealed that he was originally scheduled to work a match against Seth Rollins at Night of Champions 2014. WWE wanted that to match to happen since Jericho would not be around later for Rollins to work with. For some reason, though, management opted to go with Roman Reigns instead.
September 25, 2014
Great Khali
Even though the company has been slowly downplaying the importance of the Great Khali, WWE has plans in the works to expand even further into India. Management recognizes the country as a very profitable one for their brand. More shows are being planned, and television deals are being cemented. While the company no longer wishes to pay him as much money as before, this move into India might help Khali secure another contract soon.
September 25, 2014
Prince Devitt
Since WWE likes to own the copyright to the names of their performers, most everyone is given a new moniker when they sign a contract. Prince Devitt is no exception. The international star will now be using the name Finn Balor while he works through the developmental phase. Depending on how fans react to the name, Devitt will more than likely be bringing that name with him to the main roster.
September 25, 2014
