Rey Mysterio
For those of you wondering about the status of Rey Mysterio in WWE, the masked performer is still taking time off. He was recently spotted on vacation in Mexico after spending time with his family in Hawaii. Despite his long history of injuries, Vince McMahon still wants Mysterio back, and he even activated a clause in his contract that immediately extended the deal. Mysterio, however, has second thoughts about coming back to WWE.

Some potentially interest news coming out of WWE this week is that Rey Mysterio might have actually allowed his contract with the company to expire.

Road Dogg
Since the company has been releasing people left and right due to the budget cuts, there is some understandable paranoia backstage in WWE nowadays. Recently, people were under the impression that Road Dogg had been released because he was not around for a couple of the television taping. However, it turned out to be a false alarm, as the former Intercontinental Champion was simply on vacation.

Vickie Guerrero
Anyone that follows professional wrestling closely, knows that WWE performers spend a ridiculous amount of time on the road for the company. Vickie Guerrero became one of the latest people to grow weary of that lifestyle and requested her release from her contract. Now that she is free of that hectic obligation, the former WWE diva is now on vacation in Hawaii.

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.

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
Randy Orton
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.

Rey Mysterio
A couple of months ago, Rey Mysterio was under the belief that his tenure with WWE was over when his contract expired. However, the company enacted a clause in the deal that enabled them to extend the partnership because the masked performer missed quite a bit of dates. Apparently, he is not too happy about that, as reports have surfaced that Mysterio has stopped cashing his checks in what seems to be an attempt to get out of the deal.
July 24, 2014
Antonio Cesaro
With Rey Mysterio possibly done with the company and Sin Cara being phased out, WWE has turned to Antonio Cesaro to do promotional work in Mexico this week. Management views him as one of the top performers when it comes to international appeal, as Cesaro has been used in this role before in other countries. Rosa Mendes was also sent along as well since she is Hispanic.
July 16, 2014
Vince McMahon
Last month, it was revealed that Rey Mysterio had his contract extended another year by WWE because he had missed so much time over the last twelve months. It was a move done by Vince McMahon to keep one of his top merchandise guys around. Rumors coming out now are that Mysterio is not too pleased with that, as he wanted to leave WWE once his contract expired. There are talks that a legal battle could ensue.

April 10, 2014
CM Punk
Since he walked away from the company, CM Punk has now been removed from the upcoming Flintstones movie. To make it easier on the script writers, WWE has decided to replace him with Rey Mysterio, which should make it fairly easy for them to adapt the story line. The belief backstage is that Punk is going to just wait until his contract expires this summer.
April 10, 2014
Wade Barrett
Despite receiving one of the loudest reactions from a live audience in quite some time, Wade Barrett was removed from the Hulu broadcast of Monday Night Raw this week.

A picture of developmental diva Sasha Banks performing the 619, a move popularized by Rey Mysterio in WWE. The belief is that she is simply doing it as a tribute, as she certainly would not be allowed to perform the trademark spot on the main roster. Officials are high on Banks, but she is not yet ready to make the jump up from WWE NXT just yet.
March 26, 2014
