Brie Bella
While she is not doing a practice match with Brie Bella before Summerslam 2014, Stephanie McMahon is actually putting in a lot of hours training with Triple H. The couple routinely work out together, so it makes sense for him to put in some ring time with his wife. The match is not expected to last very long, and a surprise ending is still being planned.

Kevin Steen
Rumors have persisted over the last several months that Kevin Steen was set to sign a developmental contract with WWE. It looks to be official now, as the former ROH champion has posed for a picture with Triple H while wearing a WWE NXT shirt. The belief is that he will be focusing more on his weight and physique than actually training for the in ring stuff.

Ricardo Rodriguez
When Ricardo Rodriguez asked for his release from WWE, he told his side of the story. He wanted to wrestle again. Reports are now surfacing that the other side of the story involves his weight. Management wanted him to get to a certain number, but Rodriguez had trouble getting to that point. Thus, officials refused to give him the chance that he had been training for.
August 10, 2014
Hulk Hogan
While a lot of fans are still under the impression that Hulk Hogan is really training to make an in ring return for WWE, no discussions are taking place within the company, as many people are already aware that the former world heavyweight champion is in no shape to wrestle. Vince McMahon would gladly pull the trigger on something like this since it would generate a ton of publicity, but he knows it will not be taking place.
August 8, 2014
Shannon Moore
Earlier in the year, Shannon Moore started training again after taking some time to heal his body. The belief was that he wanted to do another good run on the independent wrestling circuit. However, it now appears that he has retired as an in ring performer. Moore opened up a wrestling school in Florida, and he recently mentioned that he was moving.
August 3, 2014
Hulk Hogan
For years, Hulk Hogan has worked the audience. He knows how to sucker in the most gullible of fans. The WWE legend is at it again. At a promotional event in New Jersey on Saturday, Hogan told the audience that he was training for another match. He also stated that he wanted it to be against John Cena. Hogan is in no shape to work another match, so the belief is that he's just creating a buzz.
August 3, 2014
Alberto Del Rio
A day before the company is expected to eliminate a lot of jobs, WWE has come to terms on the release of Ricardo Rodriguez, who stated that the decision belonged to him. The former manager of Alberto Del Rio reiterated that he wanted to be an in ring performer again. Rodriguez had been training in developmental in hopes that management would finally give him a chance. When that opportunity appeared dismal, he opted to move on to the next chapter of his career.
July 30, 2014
Tensai
With his in ring career fully behind him now, Tensai has been slowly gaining power backstage in WWE. He impressed management with his ability to function as a color commentator. Now, he has convinced them to let him have a bigger part in the company by training the developmental wrestlers. WWE likes the fact that Tensai has worked overseas and is familiar with a lot of different styles of wrestling.

Kenta Kobayashi
"He just signed with us. I was there when he had his tryout at the WWE Performance Center and I met with him there. We've been working on this for a while. His training will start when he gets here. The thing is, you can be a big star anyplace else in the world. That gets you in the door. What you do once you get here is a whole different ballgame. He's no different than anybody else once he walks through the door of the Performance Center." - Triple H on how Kenta Kobayashi will be treated in WWE
July 17, 2014
Michelle McCool
While she still has every intention of being a stay at home mother and wife, Michelle McCool decided to get out of the house on Monday. She made a visit to the WWE Performance Center. No word yet on why she was there this time around, but she has been known to drop in and help do a little training with the developmental divas. Her appearances always spark rumors of a return to WWE, so don't be surprised if the chatter increases over the next few days.
June 24, 2014
Brodus Clay
"He is a pro. He comes to work everyday. He is straight forward and tells you exactly what it is. One of my things was I didn't get to work a match with him. I would have dropped the weight I did and keep the muscle I have. He is a great leader in terms of he talks it; he walks it. He is the face of the WWE and likely so. John Cena gave us all an opportunity to train and have the same training regiment. The training of the NBA and NFL with Olympic lifts for maintenance, for power, better cardiovascular. He was on the forefront. He gave guys an opportunity." - Brodus Clay defending John Cena
June 19, 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.

Lacey Von Erich
"If you never want to have a family or a wife or time to yourself, and you like being verbally and mentally abused, then you should [get into wrestling]. I say go for it. [That abuse comes more from] the locker room. Definitely the locker room. TNA is very different than WWE. WWE was very political. I wasn't in there yet. They were like, 'You're a Von Erich. You better be amazing at wrestling,' and things like that. And I wasn't. I'm more of an actress than I am a wrestler. I'd rather play a character than get hurt on the mat. That's what I'm better at. I'm better at acting. That's what I wanted to do. Vince called me. He's the one that got me into this. He's the one asked me, 'Do you want to be a wrestler? Try to be a Diva?' He brought me out and and I signed the contract that night and went into training. I wasn't expecting it to come as much. It really blew up and they expected so much of me, but then TNA called and they really embraced me as like a family member." - Lacey Von Erich talking about backstage politics in WWE

Jack Swagger
"I had met Jim Ross and Jerry Brisco before I was even in college and they always told me to get your degree first and then we'll give you a shot if you want to come try your hand with the WWE. I graduated in May 2006, flew out to Atlanta for a week to tryout, and by July 2006 I was signed and training in Atlanta. I took a little bit different path than most WWE superstars have taken. I'm one of the few superstars who have gone through all three of the developmental camps." - Jack Swagger reveals his path to the WWE developmental program

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 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

Diamond Dallas Page

"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."

Ultimate Warrior

"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."
