Dixie Carter
Rumors surfaced this week that Dixie Carter was going to make an announcement about the new network that Impact Wrestling would be moving to.

It looks like the feud between Chris Jericho and Bray Wyatt will be continuing for another month. As of right now, WWE has the two of them penciled in for some sort of gimmick match at Night of Champions 2014.

August 19, 2014
Brooke Hogan
Since Hulk Hogan has been heavily involved in negotiations to make his return with WWE, there have been rumors springing up that Brooke Hogan could be a part of that package.

February 9, 2014
Rob Van Dam
Since WWE is expanding the big battle royal to include 40 contestants instead of the typical 30, rumors have surfaced left and right about potential returns at Royal Rumble 2015. Rob Van Dam is among the list of candidates to appear in the match that night. There is a very good chance that he could do a one night only thing and wait until later in the year to make a longer return.
October 9, 2014
Rob Van Dam
Reports surfaced over the last couple of days that Chris Jericho was going to be working his last show for WWE at Night of Champions 2014 in a match against Randy Orton.

Rob Van Dam
Reports going around state that Rob Van Dam finished up his latest stint with WWE during the kickoff match at Summerslam 2014.

The former world heavyweight champion is not currently booked for the pay per view, but there are talks that management could squeeze him into a match at the last minute.

Rob Van Dam
On Monday Night Raw, fans saw Rob Van Dam being pulled from a Beat the Clock match against Seth Rollins. He was replaced by Heath Slater, who got the surprising win, thanks to distractions from Dean Ambrose. It turns out that WWE did that because RVD is actually not cleared to wrestle. He is still recovering from an unknown injury. For what it's worth, it appears that he might be fine soon, as the former world heavyweight champion is scheduled to head to Australia for the tour.
August 6, 2014
Rob Van Dam
One of the ideas being tossed around backstage in WWE is to utilize Rob Van Dam as an opponent for Alexander Rusev, who has been tearing through the lower card division. RVD still has some name value and a bit of a connection with the audience, so he can provide the newcomer with some much needed credibility before heading into a feud with John Cena down the line.
June 10, 2014
Rob Van Dam
Since the company is hoping to build him back up to the main event level, Wade Barrett is expected to successfully retain the WWE Intercontinental Championship in his match against Rob Van Dam at Payback 2014.

Rob Van Dam
A match being discussed backstage for Extreme Rules 2014 right now involves Jack Swagger, Rob Van Dam and Antonio Cesaro doing a triple threat.

April 25, 2014
Rob Van Dam
Unless things change backstage in the next few days, it looks like Wade Barrett will be beating Rob Van Dam on Monday Night Raw next week to win himself a shot at Big E Langston and the WWE Intercontinental Championship at Extreme Rules 2014. There are rumors that management will have Antonio Cesaro interfering in the match to cost RVD the victory.
April 25, 2014

Prior to Wrestlemania 30, there were plans in place to push Alberto Del Rio towards Big E Langston and the WWE Intercontinental Championship, so when the tournament was announced, many viewed Del Rio as a top candidate to win.

April 16, 2014
Rob Van Dam
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
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
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

He and WWE have been trying to figure out a way for him to make his return, and when this match was announced, it opened the possibility of him returning sooner than expected.
April 1, 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 19, 2014
Rob Van Dam
While most people now know that Rob Van Dam was backstage at Monday Night Raw at the Staples Center in Los Angeles this week, it is now being reported that he had a meeting with Triple H while he was there.

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.

February 8, 2014

January 15, 2014
Chris Jericho
Even though he is now off doing his music thing, Chris Jericho has agreed to help WWE out on their upcoming tour of Europe. Management does not have a lot of top level talent on the active roster nowadays, and Jericho still is enough of a draw to overseas fans. He might be making a couple of appearances on Monday Night Raw and Smackdown before taking off again.
October 9, 2014
CM Punk
Since he no longer has the burden of the hectic WWE schedule to worry about, CM Punk has been enjoying his time tremendously.

March 21, 2014
CM Punk
Since he is no longer on the road for WWE every single week, CM Punk has found himself with some free time.

June 1, 2014
Antonio Cesaro
While the performers avoided major injuries at Extreme Rules 2014, Rob Van Dam did get beat up a bit, thanks largely to his closing segment with Antonio Cesaro.

November 22, 2014
Big E Langston
In what became a running joke, the New Day stable, which consists of Xavier Woods, Kofi Kingston and Big E Langston, kept being delayed by WWE. The trio worked live events together, but they were not utilized on television.

The company did not want anything that can be construed as racial on their programming, so the group had to wait.
November 22, 2014
Dixie Carter
While their new television contract with Destination America does not start until 2015, there are talks that TNA could start filming episodes of Impact Wrestling again in December.

The company would then film episodes in England during their annual tour of the country.
November 21, 2014

An appearance at Royal Rumble 2015 is still a possibility.
November 20, 2014
Jeff Jarrett
While it is a well known fact now that Jim Ross will be calling the first Global Force Wrestling pay per view in January, it is still a mystery as to who will be joining him for the event.

However, there might be some complications with that, as TNA has just secured themselves a new television deal.
November 20, 2014
Alberto Del Rio
Earlier in the week, it was revealed that Alberto Del Rio was going to be signing with two different wrestling promotions at the beginning of 2015. Reports have surfaced that one of those companies will be TNA.

The belief is that the announcement can be made as soon as January.
November 18, 2014
AJ Lee
Rumors about AJ Lee leaving WWE have popped up again. This time, the belief is that the Divas Champion will be wrapping up with the company in December.

November 18, 2014

No confirmation has been given by WWE yet, however.
November 14, 2014
Rey Mysterio
During the meeting with Rey Mysterio last week, it was made very clear that Vince McMahon was in charge of the situation. He is the one that desperately wants the popular masked performer back in the ring, even though Mysterio has made it clear that he does not want to make a return. McMahon reportedly pushed the former world heavyweight champion to return on a full time schedule, even though Mysterio does not feel that his body can hold up for that.
November 13, 2014
Rey Mysterio
After months of silence between the two sides, Rey Mysterio and WWE got together recently backstage to discuss the contract situation that has been lingering for a bit.

November 11, 2014
Vince McMahon
Earlier in the week, Chael Sonnen caught the attention of the professional wrestling industry when he revealed that WWE had offered him a $5 million contract, which he claims to have turned down because he was dedicated to UFC at the time.

November 6, 2014
Antonio Cesaro

Some are disputing the rumors, but we shall see how Cesaro is used in the upcoming weeks and months.

November 1, 2014
Dixie Carter
While it seemed all but certain that Impact Wrestling was going to have a new home in 2015, reports are now surfacing that TNA and Spike TV are close to finalizing a deal to keep the business relationship going. Sources have stated that the two sides have been in negotiation the entire time, even as TNA was allowed to seek a contract with another television network. Dixie Carter was expected to make an announcement this week, but if there is a chance to remain with Spike, the reveal could be delayed.
November 1, 2014
Randy Orton
Since it has been heavily rumored for months now and the seeds are clearly visible on Monday Night Raw, the Randy Orton baby face turn is taking place very soon. The former world heavyweight champion, however, is said to not be extremely happy about the switch. Orton has long felt more comfortable portraying a heel. He is said to be willing to go through with the turn, if it increased his chances of moving up the ladder and moving more merchandise.
October 31, 2014
Kurt Angle
Reports are floating around that Kurt Angle has signed a new contract with TNA that will enable him to work part time and focus on building up his career in Hollywood.

October 29, 2014
Alexa Bliss
A lot of eyes stay focused on the developmental program in WWE because that is usually where the next star will come from. The latest person to be viewed as the next one to be elevated to the main roster is Alexa Bliss. The diva has impressed management over the last couple of weeks, and some are even saying that she has moved past Ashley Flair in line. She is already ahead of Bayley and Sasha Banks at the moment.
October 29, 2014
Vince McMahon
Anyone that has followed WWE for a couple of years already knows that things are pretty hectic from January through April. It looks like management is looking to alleviate some of the clutter by removing the Elimination Chamber pay per view. Vince McMahon still loves the gimmick, however, so the cage match might be moved towards the summer or fall.
October 26, 2014
Jeff Jarrett
Some buzz was created earlier this week when it was discovered that Jeff Jarrett was meeting with ROH officials. Reports have now surfaced that the two sides discussed doing talent exchanges for various shows. Jarrett also wanted Ring of Honor to loosen up their contractual clause that prevents their performers from appearing on television and pay per view for other promotions, as he is interested in utilizing ROH performers on that big New Japan pay per view in January.
