Sami Zayn
When several of the WWE stars take off for Saudi Arabia this week, Sami Zayn will be joining them. He's the only developmental wrestler going on the tour. WWE wanted to get a better look at him, and some backstage feel that he might have some marketing appeal overseas. There are still rumors floating around that Zayn could be one of the WWE NXT stars to be called up to the main roster in the coming weeks.

Ricardo Rodriguez
While he still continues to train to become an in ring performer, Ricardo Rodriguez has found another way to make himself useful to WWE. At Wrestlemania 30, he will be one of the Spanish commentators for the show. This is a pretty role, as management feels that this is the event that can draw in new fans overseas, so Rodriguez needs to draw them in with his commentary.

Alex Shelley
While he worked his first independent pro wrestling show in over two years recently, Alex Shelley reaffirmed his fans that he is still very much with New Japan. He is simply working back in the United States for the time being and has every intention of returning overseas to continue his tag team with Yujiro Kushida.

Wes Brisco
While he never held championship gold during his stint in TNA, Wes Brisco can now claim to be a champion in professional wrestler. The second generation wrestler recently captured the NWA Florida Heavyweight Championship. There are talks that he might be taking the title belt with him overseas when he starts touring with New Japan.
March 22, 2014
Dixie Carter
While he has now made a commitment to TNA, it is being rumored that the deal between Dixie Carter and MVP is flexible enough to enable the former WWE star to do tours of Japan on occasions. While he has nothing officially scheduled overseas right now, MVP wanted to maintain that bit of freedom that Triple H and Vince McMahon would not give him.
March 16, 2014
Booker T
While he is not utilized on television as frequently as he used to be, Booker T is still employed by WWE, and the company is putting him to work this week. Management has chosen him to do a promotional tour overseas in Australia. He will be meeting with fans and promoting the upcoming tour that the company has scheduled in August.
March 10, 2014
AJ Styles
While a lot of fans were hoping that he would sign with a promotion in the United States so that they can watch him on television again, it appears that AJ Styles will be signing overseas instead. Word has it that he is close to finalizing a contract with New Japan and should be heading to that country to work a few tours. He may be paired up with Karl Anderson, Luke Gallows and Prince Devitt.
March 6, 2014
Shelton Benjamin
A couple of weeks ago, Shelton Benjamin revealed to fans on Twitter that he was a fast healer. Well, he was not kidding. Benjamin has just announced that he is heading back overseas to do a tour for New Japan. He is leaving the United States some time next week. The former WWE star had surgery back in January for an injured elbow.
March 5, 2014
Big Show
Even though he was not booked for Elimination Chamber 2014, Big Show is still very much in contention for a coveted match at Wrestlemania 30. Right now, WWE simply had nothing for him from the creative department. Plus, he replaced the Great Khali on an overseas promotional tour of India. He should be back on television soon.
February 24, 2014
Frankie Kazarian
There are talks that Frankie Kazarian could be heading off to work for New Japan after his contract with TNA expires this summer. While he wants to leave the door open for a future return to the company, he is rumored to be interested in a change of scenery, even if it's just for a few months. He has several friends working overseas right now.
February 22, 2014
Vince McMahon
Rumors have been floating this week that Vince McMahon was on the verge of buying a soccer team in England. This is actually something that has been springing up over the years. However, just like before, the rumors are false. The WWE CEO simply does not have time for such a purchase, especially since it is overseas.
February 18, 2014
Colt Cabana
Sonjay Dutt has posted this picture of himself on Twitter, where the former TNA star is in Russia. He has been on an overseas tour over the last couple of weeks. Dutt also worked the Wrestling Mania event with Colt Cabana and Trent Baretta.
February 17, 2014
Big Show
In a rather interesting move, the Big Show is being sent to India this week to do some promotional work. Many had expected Great Khali to being sent overseas for that task, since he has been collecting a huge paycheck by being a draw to that region. This has led to speculations that the company could be looking to part ways soon.
February 14, 2014
Dixie Carter
While he has not been had as much of an presence on screen on Impact Wrestling as of late, Jeremy Borash is very much still involved backstage with TNA. He has been working very closely with Dixie Carter in business development. Borash does a lot of traveling for the company, including overseas business trips.
February 13, 2014
Luke Gallows

Since being released by TNA, Wes Brisco has worked a couple of shows on the independent wrestling circuit, and it appears that he is hoping to expand his horizon by working overseas. He already has a connection to New Japan through Luke Gallows, his former Aces and Eights teammate.

February 3, 2014
Mr Anderson

Mr Anderson was written off of television on Impact Wrestling, and he's also now the father of newborn twins, so that led many to believe that he was going to be skipping the current European tour that TNA is on. However, it has now been confirmed that he is overseas with the company.

January 30, 2014
Christopher Daniels

Since Christopher Daniels and Frankie Kazarian have wrestled all over the world, it makes sense for them to have friends overseas. Bad Influence is currently in Europe right now, and they decided to meet up with Prince Devitt for a couple of drinks.

January 28, 2014
John Cena

"John Cena was always very sweet to me. We had breakfast together on numerous occasions when we were on overseas tours. I don't know what he is like now but back then I considered him a friend."

Rhyno
"It's definitely tough, it's always been tough, but it all lies down to the individual, we're all individuals and we all have choices whether we can work for a promotion or not. It's a little easier for me, because I've got a name and reputation and I've built a small little brand with my name and wrestling ability and being on TV for over 13-14 years, so it's a little easier for me. It is very difficult for independent wrestlers, but some aspects of it, it's easier now to get your face out there for independent wrestlers because of social media. Back in the day, when you're poor and living in your car, you don't have $10 to print up an 810 and put together a 15 minute clip on a VHS tape and then pay $5 to mail it out. Now it's just click click on your smartphone and then send the link to a promoter and it's easier for a promoter to look you up. Back when I started, if you were sending a package out, it cost you $20 and it was tough to get your name out there back then. It's easier now for a guy to just click a couple of links, put the match together and send it to a promoter and that costs you nothing, just time." - Rhyno discusses the professional wrestling business
