Xavier Woods
While they occasionally worked together over the past year, rumors have it that WWE is trying to downplay the on screen relationship between Xavier Woods and the Funkadactyls. Management feels that the girls are over with the audience thanks to their role on Total Divas. They're going to be utilized more as in ring performers than just a dancing side show routine.

Bruno Sammartino
Rumors have it that Triple H is the main driving force behind Bruno Sammartino staying involved with WWE. The company already has received his biggest marketing contributions when he was inducted into the hall of fame, but since HHH is a big fan of Sammartino, the two sides are maintaining a working relationship.

Rumors are floating around right now that Low Ki could be making his return to TNA in the near future.

Aksana
Another name that is rumored to be released by WWE soon is Aksana. While she is on good terms with management now, the backstage relationship has always been up and down. The belief is that the company views her as being expendable and will more than likely allow her to walk once her contract expires. WWE needs room for newer stars.

Buff Bagwell
"When I first heard the news of the Ultimate Warrior's passing - from my oldest son - my first thoughts were of his precious daughters, and how their father - whose love for them was clear - had been taken away from them far to early in their lives. My second thought was about the foolish tweet I sent out during Warrior's Hall of Fame induction speech - and how badly I wish I could have taken those words back. Maybe they seemed harmless at the time, but in retrospect, the fact that my final words about Warrior were negative ones has had me feeling pretty bad these last 24 hours. I did not dislike Warrior. I got along fine with him in 1996, and years later, during a 'Legends Rountable' focusing on 'Heatseekers', I was good-naturedly kidded by my fellow Roundtable guests for having nothing negative to say about Warrior, Paul Heyman or Buff Bagwell." - Mick Foley talks about his relationship with Ultimate Warrior

Brock Lesnar
WWE has now decided to put the Undertaker into the upcoming Flintstones movie.

April 10, 2014
Brooke Tessmacher
Since she has maintained a great relationship with Jeff Jarrett and Karen Jarrett, there are rumors that Brooke Tessmacher could be one of the performers that ends up signing with the new Global Force Wrestling.

Terry Funk

Arn Anderson
Even though the truth has been out there for several years now, a lot of wrestling fans are still under the belief that Ole Anderson and Arn Anderson are brothers in real life. They're not.

Jake Roberts
"People have to remember that an alcoholic and a drug addict can be known to tell a lie or two. I certainly did my share of it, with lashing out and was pretty ugly about it. For Vince McMahon to forgive and forget, maybe he hasn't forgotten, but at least he's forgiven, and to invite me into the WWE Hall of Fame, it's going to be an awesome, awesome moment." - Jake Roberts on his relationship with Vince McMahon
April 2, 2014
Vince McMahon

That has pleased E! enough to where they posted a press release, touting it as their second best show behind Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Vince McMahon is said to be completely behind the business relationship and is willing to devote more resources to promoting his girls.
April 2, 2014
Brock Lesnar
"The friendship came together when we got together professionally back in 2002 and realized just how similar our goals were both professionally and personally. On a professional level, we both want to be the absolute best at our craft. We will settle for nothing less than being at the top of our game at every appearance and we want to leave a legacy of being the single, solitary best in that particular role the industry has ever seen. On a personal level, nothing means more to either one of us than our children and we will fight to the death for our children. And everything that we do including everything we do professionally revolves around, is about and is regarding the love that we have for our children. So both professionally and personally as much as we are different, you're talking about a South Dakota farm boy that is a natural born predator and conqueror and a smart ass New York Jew boy who's the son of a personal injury attorney from the Bronx. But as different as we are culturally, we are in terms as professionally and personally, we are very much alike." - Paul Heyman discusses his relationship with Brock Lesnar

Jim Ross
"There's nothing unresolved. My relationship with WWE is exactly what we want it to be. I'm staying very busy and doing something for WWE Network on an ongoing basis would be challenging. They've moved on and so have I with no regrets." - Jim Ross on his backstage heat with Vince McMahon and WWE

Hulk Hogan
Since the two of them will be forever linked because of their historic match at Wrestlemania 6, there were talks of having Hulk Hogan doing the hall of fame induction for the Ultimate Warrior at Wrestlemania 30. However, WWE opted against that because the relationship between the two of them isn't exactly warm. Linda McMahon was chosen instead.
March 26, 2014
Billy Gunn
The belief backstage in WWE is that Road Dogg is going to be winding down his days as an active in ring performer now that Wrestlemania 30 is over and done with. His tag team partner Billy Gunn suffered an injury during the big six man tag team match at the pay per view, so management is contemplating a scenario where they are written off of television.
April 8, 2014
Billy Gunn
At Wrestlemania 30, Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns completely destroyed Kane, Road Dogg and Billy Gunn in a six man tag team match. The Shield captured the win over the Authority with a triple power bomb on both members of the New Age Outlaws at the same time. That led to an easy pin fall victory for the Shield at Wrestlemania.
April 6, 2014
Dean Ambrose
While plans are constantly being changed throughout the week, WWE currently has Kane, Road Dogg, Billy Gunn, Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins in the opening match at Wrestlemania 30. The belief is that the audience in New Orleans should give these guys a nice pop since all six guys are fairly over.
April 5, 2014
Roman Reigns
Since management was having trouble trying to figure out where to put everyone, a last minute decision was made to do a six man tag team match so that WWE could get Kane, Road Dogg, Billy Gunn, Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins on the Wrestlemania 30 card. Reigns initially had a much bigger role on the pay per view.
March 25, 2014
Kane
In a sign that they still have a good amount of backstage power, Road Dogg and Billy Gunn have been pushing management to let them work with the Shield before WWE has Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins going their separate ways. It looks like the company will be giving them that chance at Wrestlemania 30 in the Kane story line.
March 21, 2014
Road Dogg

They're still guaranteed a spot on the card, though.
March 16, 2014
Jimmy Uso
There are those within WWE that want the tag team championship defended at Wrestlemania 30, and the favored match involves Jimmy Uso, Jey Uso, Road Dogg and Billy Gunn. However, the chances of that happening all fall upon Road Dogg, who is currently suffering from a back injury. The Usos could be thrown into the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal if Road Dogg cannot work the tag match.
March 13, 2014
Road Dogg
Earlier, it was revealed that Road Dogg and Billy Gunn were both banged up, so WWE opted to put the tag team championship on Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso. Word is coming out now that Road Dogg has a bad back. He noted that was receiving treatment for the injury, and there is still a possibility that he ends up working the Wrestlemania 30 card.
March 8, 2014
Road Dogg
The Usos were given the tag team championship recently, so that WWE could help to control the hostile audience at Monday Night Raw.

Jimmy Uso
On Monday Night Raw, Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso were given a victory over Road Dogg and Billy Gunn, in order to get some heat back after losing at Elimination Chamber 2014.

February 25, 2014
Billy Gunn
Even though they lost at Elimination Chamber 2014, there are talks that Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso could be given a rematch tonight on Monday Night Raw.

February 17, 2014
Goldust
Since WWE wants a tag team championship match at Elimination Chamber 2014, Road Dogg and Billy Gunn are assured of a spot on the card. It looks like management is leaning towards a fatal four way match. The other contestants are most likely going to be Cody Rhodes, Goldust, Jack Swagger, Antonio Cesaro, Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso.
February 16, 2014
Ryback
While it appears that a push was started for Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso on Monday Night Raw, the feeling backstage is that they are simply being utilized as filler, in order to help elevate Road Dogg and Billy Gunn. WWE did not even bother including their match against Curtis Axel and Ryback on the Hulu broadcast of Raw this week.
February 12, 2014
Road Dogg

While some fans online have taken to blaming the veteran performer for not being more careful in the ring, there appears to be no backstage heat on Road Dogg right now for the spot in the steel cage match on Monday Night Raw, where Cody Rhodes injured himself while doing a moonsault off the top of the structure.

February 8, 2014
Billy Gunn
Since a lot of fans have been critical of the company utilizing the aging veterans, Jim Ross took to his personal blog to defend WWE using Road Dogg and Billy Gunn.
