February 3, 2014
Daniel Bryan

Since WWE changed up the plans and decided to put Extreme Rules 2014 in Seattle, it appears that the company is looking to build the pay per view event around Daniel Bryan, as management feels that he should be able to draw a massive reaction from his home crowd.

Damien Sandow
There are people backstage in WWE that are questioning the Rob Van Dam return, as it almost feels like an afterthought.

April 11, 2014
Rob Van Dam
Despite the guy still having a large fan base, the return of Rob Van Dam was removed from the Hulu broadcast of Monday Night Raw this week. The former world heavyweight champion defeated Damien Sandow in a quick match, but WWE did not view it as a segment important enough to be shown to their fans on Hulu.

April 8, 2014
Damien Sandow
On Monday Night Raw this week, rumors about Rob Van Dam making his return to WWE turned out to be true. He came back and defeated Damien Sandow in a quick squash.

April 8, 2014
Rob Van Dam
Since rumors leaked that he was going to be returning during the Wrestlemania 30 battle royal, WWE opted to pull Rob Van Dam from the event.

April 7, 2014
Rob Van Dam
While his potential involvement at Wrestlemania 30 has yet to be confirmed by WWE, Rob Van Dam will certainly be in New Orleans this weekend, as he is one of the slew of professional wrestlers who have been booked for the WrestleCon event taking place in the Louisiana. RVD has a signing on Saturday, but he is free on Sunday night to work a big pay per view match.
April 4, 2014
Andre the Giant
Since management still is trying to figure out a way to get the WWE NXT guys involved at Wrestlemania 30, there is a chance that Sami Zayn and Adrian Neville could be given one of the three remaining spots in the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal at the pay per view on Sunday. Rob Van Dam is a strong candidate to take a spot as well.
April 3, 2014
Rob Van Dam

April 1, 2014
Chris Jericho
In the eyes of the fans, WWE is definitely a step up from TNA. However, that is not the case when it comes to the performers themselves.

March 18, 2014
Vince McMahon

Rob Van Dam
While a confirmed date has not been given, we now have a narrowed down time frame for when Rob Van Dam is expected to return to WWE. He initially wanted to return in time for Wrestlemania 30, but there was not a spot on the show for him. Now, the former world heavyweight champion is aiming to return before Summerslam 2014.
March 2, 2014
Rob Van Dam
It is looking less likely that Rob Van Dam will be returning in time for the biggest wrestling event of the year, as management has been pretty busy trying to put together the card. WWE already has a lot of former stars returning at the event, so RVD might be forced to wait until after Wrestlemania 30 to make his return to the company.

February 11, 2014
Rob Van Dam
While they are interested in bringing him back into the company at some point, one of the problems that WWE is facing right now with Rob Van Dam is being able to find a spot at Wrestlemania 30 for him. Things have already been hectic as is backstage, so trying to find a good place and a story line for him is not really a priority at this point.
February 8, 2014
Bray Wyatt
During the Smackdown taping, it was announced that there would be a big Elimination Chamber 2014 rematch on Monday Night Raw featuring Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan taking on Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose.

Batista
During the Smackdown taping, Batista opened up the show and addressed the audience. Dolph Ziggler came out and issued a challenge. Batista laughs at him, so Ziggler gives him a drop kick.

February 26, 2014
Antonio Cesaro

February 12, 2014
Big E Langston
