Rock
Since leaving WWE earlier in the year, CM Punk has remained relatively quiet, making sporadic appearances at NHL and MLB games. The former world heavyweight champion is going to be making a higher profile appearance later on this month. Punk will be the co-host of the kickoff show for the Alternative Press Music Awards, which is being held at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland.
July 9, 2014
Rock
After his cameo appearance at Wrestlemania 30, the Rock has headed back to England to put in more work into the Hercules film. While WWE fans were hoping that he would stick around and make a couple of more appearances, the former world heavyweight champion is not expected to make another return for the foreseeable future. WWE is still trying to convince him to come back in 2015.
April 14, 2014
Rock

The Rock called in a favor from a famous friend to help out with his new show, Wake Up Call, which will be airing on TNT soon. Dana White, who is the president of UFC, made a guest appearance on one of the early episodes. Rock post a picture of the two of them together on the set via Twitter.

February 5, 2014
Rock
While he only made an in ring appearance at the big pay per view this year, Rock is being penciled in to work a match at Wrestlemania 31. WWE actually wants to build the entire event around him. A hall of fame induction is being discussed as well. As far as opponents are concerned, the top candidate to face the Rock at Wrestlemania is Brock Lesnar.
April 12, 2014
Rock
If you're one of those people still hoping to see the Rock at Wrestlemania 30, then you might be in luck, as rumors are heavily stating that he will be making an appearance at the pay per view. However, there are those that believe that it might just be a taped promo. At one point in time, Vince McMahon was hoping that Rock would be working the main event.
April 3, 2014
Mick Foley
Considering the amount of pain that he withstood for the sake of entertaining fans over the years, it is a bit surprising that Mick Foley did not spend more time on the sidelines. He has retired from WWE now, but an injury is preventing him from working. Back issues have prompted the former world heavyweight champion to cancel an upcoming appearance in Denver. No word yet on whether or not it will be rescheduled.
August 27, 2014
Bray Wyatt
WWE has announced a big rematch between John Cena and Bray Wyatt for Monday Night Raw tonight. No word yet on why the match is taking place, as the two of them are not currently feuding with one another. Wyatt is still feuding with Chris Jericho, while Cena is in a program with Brock Lesnar, who once again will not be making a television appearance this week despite being the WWE champion.
August 25, 2014
Brock Lesnar
WWE is bringing in the big names to help open up Monday Night Raw this week. Hulk Hogan, Shawn Michaels and Ric Flair have been confirmed to make an appearance. The trio of former world heavyweight champions will be in the opening segment. Reports are surfacing that Flair, Hogan and Michaels will be promoting the feud between John Cena and Brock Lesnar, who is not scheduled to be there.
August 23, 2014
Alberto Del Rio
It looks like Alberto Del Rio will not be joining TNA or Global Force Wrestling after all. During a media appearance, the former world heavyweight champion revealed that he cannot wrestle in the United States for approximately a year. The belief is that he breached his contract with WWE when the backstage incident took place. That reportedly enables the company to ban him from working for another wrestling promotion.
August 16, 2014
Alberto Del Rio
While there are uncertainty as to whether or not Alberto Del Rio is under the 90 day no compete clause with WWE since he is rumored to be appearing at the big AAA pay per view this weekend, we now know that Ricardo Rodriguez cannot make an appearance for a television promotion. He informed fans via Twitter that he would not be able to make an appearance at TripleMania this upcoming Sunday.
August 12, 2014
Alberto Del Rio
The Alberto Del Rio story has just gotten a little more interesting. An employee of AAA has announced that the former world heavyweight champion will be making an appearance at TripleMania, which is the Mexican version of Wrestlemania, on Sunday night. Generally, WWE enforces a 90 day clause on performers who are given a release. There is a possibility that Del Rio might not be under that clause, which means that his chances of showing up in TNA has increased tremendously.
August 11, 2014
Hulk Hogan
Since WWE wants to make this is a big edition of Monday Night Raw, the company has enlisted the help of Hulk Hogan and friends to help spike the ratings. Scott Hall and Kevin Nash have already been confirmed for an appearance, and there are talks that an nWo reunion could be taking place. Another person from Hogan's past has now been added as well. Paul Orndorff is scheduled to make an appearance tonight.
August 11, 2014
Scott Steiner
While making an appearance at the Comic Con event in southern California, Scott Steiner was asked about his relationship with WWE. He stated that the company has tried to get him to sign a Legends contract in the past. However, Steiner revealed that he did not sign the deal because his lawyers advised him against doing such a thing because WWE would basically own his name.
August 9, 2014
Batista
Since it has now been revealed that there are talks of having the superheroes from the Guardians of the Galaxy movie making an appearance in a future Avengers movie, that means that WWE might have a representative in a film that is expected to be seen by millions of people worldwide. Batista has a very good chance of being cast in the movie, and that would help to bring a lot of exposure for WWE.
August 2, 2014
Brie Bella
To further their story line, WWE has revealed that Stephanie McMahon has invited Brie Bella to make an appearance on the next episode of Monday Night Raw. This should move them closer to the long rumored match at Summerslam 2014. The belief is that this also gives the company an opportunity to showcase Daniel Bryan and capitalize on the fame that he recently picked up by detaining a burglar.
July 28, 2014
Ric Flair
In an attempt to get as much out of his name value as possible, WWE has been utilizing Ric Flair during live events as a special guest referee. The hope is that his appearance will help convince some fans to attend the show. As of right now, he has been booked on a couple of shows throughout the summer in this particular role. No word yet on what WWE plans on doing with him on television, though.
July 26, 2014
Big E Langston
On Monday Night Raw this week, Xavier Woods, who is only used sporadically on television by WWE, made a surprising appearance after a tag team match featuring Curtis Axel, Ryback, Kofi Kingston and Big E Langston. He cut a quick promo about how Kingston and Langston cannot get very far in WWE by being nice guys. This is the start of the long rumored stable, which has already been compared to the Nation of Domination by fans online.
July 22, 2014
Eva Marie
In the previous generation, Sean Waltman was the benchmark when it comes to fans giving him heat because they legitimately resented the performer. It looks like Eva Marie is going to be taking that mantle now. During a recent appearance at a WWE NXT live event, the red haired diva was treated rather rudely by the audience. Things became even worse after she put on a very sub par performance as well.
July 19, 2014
Wade Barrett
While many were afraid that the injury would cause him to lose his push, the fact that management has Wade Barrett scheduled to make an appearance at WWE Battleground 2014 is a good sign that the elevation will continue once he makes his return. The belief is that Barrett will be handing over the Intercontinental Championship to the winner of the battle royal, while planting the seeds for a future feud.
July 15, 2014
Bray Wyatt
While it was still noticeable last night, WWE medical personnel worked fervently last night to repair the black eye on Bray Wyatt before he stepped in front of the cameras. They drained fluids from around his eye to reduce the swelling. Then, makeup artists did as much as they could to hide the darkness. WWE worked around the issue by having Erick Rowan and Luke Harper attacking Chris Jericho in the ring before Wyatt made a brief appearance on the stage.
July 15, 2014
Hulk Hogan
WWE has a very big announcement being set up in Tokyo this week. It's such a major move in Japan that they even have Hulk Hogan making an appearance at the event. The belief is that this is where the company will reveal that they have signed Kenta Kobayashi, one of the better performers in the country, to a contract to join the WWE roster.
July 11, 2014
Chris Jericho
A car dealership in East Hanover, New Jersey decided to pay Chris Jericho some money to make a promotional appearance, and it paid off big time. The former WWE star managed to draw in approximately 800 people to the event, some of whom stuck around and checked out the vehicles that were being sold. Jericho's drawing power is so tremendous that he can easily generate a good income by doing various appearances across the country.
June 29, 2014
Matt Hardy
On the independent wrestling circuit, Matt Hardy requires a $1500 paycheck for each appearance. The promoter also has to pay for his hotel and airfare. Plus, Reby Sky gets an additional $300 for appearing as well. Since TNA really wanted Hardy to help boost interest in the latest series of Impact Wrestling episodes, the company opted to pay him twice his asking price.
June 29, 2014
Bret Hart
Monday Night Raw is heading to Montreal next month, and Bret Hart has been signed to make an appearance. WWE is also filming Smackdown in Canada that week, so there is a very good chance that Hart might be making a second appearance for the company. No word yet on what he will be doing on the show, but rumors are suggesting that it will not be anything big.
June 24, 2014
Booker T
Next month, Booker T will be holding the first ever internet pay per view event for his Reality of Wrestling promotion, and he's calling in a big name to help him out. Diamond Dallas Page has signed on to make an appearance at the show. The former WCW champion is unlikely to be wrestling at the event, but he could take part in a physical altercation in an in ring segment.
June 9, 2014
Rock
During a recent interview with Alternative Nation, Hornswoggle was asked about his backstage heat with the Rock. The WWE star revealed some details about an incident that took place when the Rock was revealed as the special guest host of Wrestlemania 27. Hornswoggle stated that the Rock confused him for a Make a Wish kid. Rock apparently tapped him on the shoulders and asked if he had a good time at the show.
August 29, 2014
Rock
While the movie did not dominate in the United States as the studios had hoped, Hercules has done well overseas. Rock has now informed the fans that the movie has topped the box offices in India, Russia and Australia. The movie has generated almost the same amount from international viewers as it has domestic ones. There's still talks that the movie might barely break even for the studios, which would definitely not be a good sign for the Rock.
August 9, 2014
Rock
Some potentially bad news for the Rock. His new Hercules movie is struggling at the box office. During it's second weekend in the theaters, sales dropped by approximately 70 percent. There are talks that the movie might barely break even, minus the the huge cost of advertising. The budget for the film was around $100 million, so the Rock's drawing power might take a bit of a hit.
August 2, 2014
Rock
Through his Twitter account, the Rock informed fans that his new Hercules movie is now the top film in Australia. Several analysts are predicting that the movie will be a big flop in the United States because the marketing campaigns have not really generated a huge buzz. There have also been a lot of bad reviews, which might prompt people to avoid the movie.
July 25, 2014
Rock
While doing an interview in Cleveland recently to promote his upcoming Hercules movie, the Rock was asked about a return to WWE and a potential match against his cousin Roman Reigns. The Hollywood star stated that it would not make sense right now for the match to happen because Reigns is not the top heel in the company. Rock floated the idea of returning as a heel, but that might not be something that WWE is interested in doing because they know that the fans will not root against the popular performer.
July 19, 2014
Rock
It is no secret that WWE would love for the Rock to be the centerpiece attraction at Wrestlemania 31. However, the possibility of that happening is becoming more and more unclear by the day. The studios have decided to move the release date of Fast and Furious 7, which features Rock in a big role, up a bit. It will now be shown in the theaters a few days after Wrestlemania. That means that the Rock will be needed to travel the world to do promotion for the film. His availability to WWE is in question.
July 10, 2014
Rock
Even though he is now one of the most well known movies stars on the planet, the Rock still has a lot of ambitions in life. The former WWE star is now focused on producing movies. He is currently in negotiations with Universal to star in and produce a movie called The Janson Directive. The belief in Hollywood is that this will be a vehicle for Dwayne Johnson to do films that are similar to what Matt Damon did in the Bourne series.
July 9, 2014
Rock
While it may be hard for a lot of fans to fathom, WWE may not be able to afford to bring the Rock back into the mix for Wrestlemania 31. The company is far from broke, but they have to be wiser about their spending since the valuation of the company has taken a severe dive. Rock is far from cheap since he has great name value. The two sides might not be able to come to an agreement that would see the legendary performer returning to WWE for another stint.
July 3, 2014
Rock
After several weeks down in Australia, the Rock has finally finished filming of the San Andreas movie, which will be about the biggest earthquake to strike mankind. This little bit of information might spark rumors of a WWE return, as he does not have another film on schedule. Rock recently sparked interest within the wrestling community when he stated that he would not return to WWE unless he was paid at least the same amount of money as his last return
June 19, 2014
Rock
During a recent interview with the Hollywood Reporter, the Rock revealed that he was willing to come back to WWE if the company were to pay him what he received during 2013 or more. While the confirmed dollar amount was not reported by the company, rumors have it that Rock was paid millions of dollars for a couple of appearances and matches. WWE is trying to save money right now, but the belief is that the company would gladly shell out that money to Rock since he can generate more interest than everyone on their current roster.
June 18, 2014
Rock
Not too long ago, Rock revealed to the world that his cousin Tamina Snuka was one of the hardest working and most determined people he knows. He noted that she was a single mother of two, who went from being a janitor to being a WWE star. Her determination is showing yet again because Tamina is recovering much quicker than expected from her knee surgery, which was expected to keep her out of action until the end of the year.
June 15, 2014
Rock
If there wasn't already a million reasons to like Chris Jericho, here is another. The former WWE star was at the Rock on the Range festival in Ohio this past weekend, performing with Fozzy. When he heard about a female fan being injured during the show, he went and stood with her as she was being checked out by medical personnel by an ambulance.
May 20, 2014
Rock
The Samoan presence in WWE has just gotten a little bit stronger, as Savelina Fanene is now under a developmental contract with the company. She is related to the Rock and does have an athletic background. Savelina recently noted on Instagram that she had moved to Orlando, where she will be training for the next year at the WWE Performance Center.
May 10, 2014
Rock
When Shawn Michaels began teaming up with Marty Jannetty as the Midnight Rockers, fans across the country immediately criticized them for stealing the gimmicks from Bobby Eaton, Stan Lane, Ricky Morton and Robert Gibson. During a recent interview with Morton and Gibson, however, the Rock 'n Roll Express stated that it was viewed as a compliment. Morton also revealed that Michaels used to ride with and learned from them in the southern territories.
April 26, 2014
Rock
Through Instagram, the Rock informed his fans that he has started shooting the new San Andreas film. The movie will be about the biggest earthquake to ever hit the city of Los Angeles. Filming is taking place in Australia, where the former WWE star has been participating in rescue training over the last several days. The movie is expected to draw huge numbers.
April 25, 2014
Rock
On their official website, WWE produced a list of the greatest talkers in the history of the business. The top five consisted of Ric Flair, Rock, Dusty Rhodes, Roddy Piper and Steve Austin. The more interesting inclusion, though, is CM Punk, who is listed at #16. The company has not made much mention of him since he walked away a couple of months ago.
April 25, 2014
Rock
While speaking to the media in Australia this week, Rock revealed that he wants to be in the next James Bond movie. The former WWE champion is a big fan of Daniel Craig, who plays the title role. Rock also noted that his grandfather once played a villain in a James Bond movie, and he would love to follow in his footsteps.
April 17, 2014
Rock
It has been a rather busy month for the Rock. First, he flies into New Olreans to give WWE a hand with Wrestlemania 30. Then, he heads over to England to finalize things with the Hercules movie. Rock also stopped in Dubai to do some promotional work. His next stop is Australia, where the former WWE champion will start shooting the San Andreas movie.
April 15, 2014
Rock
Considering how incredible the show was, WWE should not have any issues with coming up with Wrestlemania 30 highlights to show on Monday Night Raw this week. Brock Lesnar, Undertaker, Hulk Hogan, Steve Austin, Rock, Daniel Bryan, Triple H, Batista, John Cena, Bray Wyatt, Randy Orton, Kofi Kingston, Big Show and Antonio Cesaro provided plenty of memorable Wrestlemania moments.
April 7, 2014
Rock
In an almost surreal scene, Wrestlemania 30 started off with Hulk Hogan, Steve Austin and the Rock standing together in the middle of a WWE ring. The three of them were each given time to address the audience before throwing out their respective catchphrases. Then, the Hogan, Austin and Rock all drank beers to the delight of the Wrestlemania crowd.
April 6, 2014
Rey Mysterio
The relationship between WWE and Rey Mysterio might be worse than what a lot of us already thought. Reports have surfaced that the company and the popular masked performer are not communicating with one another nowadays. Many were under the belief that a discussion would be had when Mysterio made a taped appearance at TripleMania for AAA. Apparently, WWE is letting that issue slide for the time being, as lawyers have yet to get involved.
August 28, 2014
Rey Mysterio
When Rey Mysterio decided to make a video appearance at TripleMania for AAA, the belief was that he was doing it as a shot at WWE. Rumors have surfaced that he is quite upset with the company in regards to his contract situation. Reports are now surfacing that Mysterio had a handshake agreement with Triple H that would have enabled him to walk away from the company. However, Vince McMahon reportedly decided to overrule that and force to remain under contract to WWE for another year.
August 20, 2014
Hulk Hogan
Since he did not fly home to Florida after the live WWE event last night, the belief is that Hulk Hogan will be making an appearance at Summerslam 2014 tonight. There is also a good chance that he will be making an appearance on Monday Night Raw tomorrow as well. WWE sent their private jet to northern California last night, so that the performers did not have to make the five hour drive down to Los Angeles.
August 17, 2014
Rey Mysterio
While the company was hoping that the legendary masked performer would make an appearance at TripleMania on Sunday, AAA is reportedly backing away from Rey Mysterio. The promotion does not want to be involved in a contract tampering lawsuit with WWE. As of right now, there is a bit of a dispute between Mysterio and Vince McMahon on their deal. Until that is cleared, AAA will not be contacting Mysterio.
August 16, 2014
Alberto Del Rio
Alberto Del Rio might not be the only familiar WWE face to make an appearance at TripleMania this upcoming Sunday night. Word has it that Rey Mysterio has accepted the invitation from AAA to be at the biggest wrestling pay per view in Mexico this weekend. If the masked performer shows up, then that means that his contract issues with Vince McMahon are still lingering.
August 14, 2014
Alberto Del Rio
There has been a lot of speculation floating around about Alberto Del Rio and his release from WWE since word got out that the former world heavyweight champion was going to be making an appearance for AAA at TripleMania this upcoming weekend. Some believe that he was able to convince WWE to waive his 90 day no compete clause because of the backstage incident.
August 13, 2014
Alberto Del Rio
Rumors are spreading that Alberto Del Rio could possibly become one of the bigger names to sign with Jeff Jarrett and Global Force Wrestling. The speculation is due to the fact that the two of them will both be at TripleMania this weekend. Jarrett has a business relationship with AAA and will be wrestling at the pay per view, while Del Rio, fresh off of a controversial release from WWE, will be making an appearance.
August 12, 2014
Batista
There are rumors floating around that Batista might not actually return to WWE after all. Guardians of the Galaxy has been quite successful, and the second movie has already been signed. Batista is already attached to the Kickboxer remake. He may come back to WWE for one more appearance, but the risk of being injured in the wrestling ring might not make much sense any more to a Hollywood star.
August 8, 2014
Ric Flair
While Ric Flair made his much anticipated return to Monday Night Raw this past week, WWE reportedly has no plans for the former world heavyweight champion. He was supposed to make another random appearance on Smackdown, but that was changed at the last minute due to the script being completely reworked. Flair will sporadically be making appearances for WWE heading into Summerslam 2014.
July 19, 2014
Bully Ray
Since his company is folding and he is joining the Great Muta in Wrestle-1, there are talks that Tajiri could be making an appearance in TNA very soon, as the two companies have been working closely together nowadays. Tajiri still has some name value due to his stint in WWE, and he has a connection with characters like Rhyno, Bully Ray, Tommy Dreamer and Devon.
July 6, 2014
Gene Snitsky
A familiar face is expected to show up on Impact Wrestling soon. Rumors are going around that Gene Snitsky has signed a contract with TNA. Aside from an imposing stature, he also brings with him a little name value, thanks to his memorable stint in WWE. No word yet on how long the deal is supposed to be, so there is a chance that his appearance might be temporary.
June 26, 2014
Daniel Bryan
In a rather interesting bit of news, reports are surfacing that the audience at Monday Night Raw did not react much when WWE announced that Daniel Bryan would be making an appearance at Money in the Bank 2014. That comes as a surprise because he was really one of the most popular guys in the industry before he left to have surgery on his injured neck. It should be interesting to see how fans react to him at the pay per view itself.
June 24, 2014
Batista
While his character quit WWE on Monday Night Raw this week, Batista is still very much working with the company. The former world heavyweight champion will still be making an appearance at a WWE NXT event later on this month. Afterwards, he is expected to take off for a couple of months to do promote Guardians of the Galaxy and film another movie.
June 4, 2014
CM Punk
Rumors going around right now is that CM Punk will be making an appearance at Payback 2014 tonight because the event is taking place in his hometown of Chicago. However, the former WWE champion revealed that he will be approximately 20 miles down the road from the pay per view. Punk will be attending an NHL game instead of making his return to wrestling.
June 1, 2014
Kevin Von Erich
During a recent interview to promote his upcoming appearance at Slammiversary 2014, Kevin Von Erich revealed to the Dallas News that he normally avoids traveling because of a bad back suffered from years of being an in ring performer. The Texas legend stated that he was willing to travel from his home in Hawaii to the TNA pay per view because he wants to see his son performing on a national stage.
June 1, 2014
CM Punk
On Saturday night, Jim Ross is doing his one man show at the House of Blues in Chicago. The longtime WWE commentator is hoping that a very famous resident of the city will make a surprise appearance at his event. Ross publicly stated that he does not know if CM Punk will be there, but he hopes that the former WWE champion checks out his act.
May 30, 2014
Shawn Michaels
Since WWE really wants the show to do well, management has decided to give a little bit of a boost to Legends House by having Shawn Michaels doing a guest appearance. The company wants a bigger name on the series next season, but rumors going around is that WWE won't even bother trying to convince Michaels to do the show because he has far too many outside commitments as is.
May 25, 2014
Scott Hall
A potentially interesting situation is developing with Scott Hall again. The former Intercontinental Champion is scheduled to show up at the next Smackdown taping to film an interview segment that will be aired on the WWE Network. Hall recently skipped out on an independent event because of a rumored relapse. It will be interesting to see if he makes it for his WWE appearance.
May 24, 2014
Daniel Bryan
WWE is wrapping up their tour of Europe and the performers will be heading back to the United States. The next episode of Monday Night Raw is taking place in Tennessee, and Daniel Bryan, who recently had neck surgery, is being advertised to make an appearance. This could be a swerve by Stephanie McMahon to further sell the story line between the two.
May 21, 2014
Kevin Steen
While the possibility looked bleak initially, it appears that WWE is set to sign Kevin Steen to a developmental contract. Optimism for his signing was not very high after he received a tryout with the company. However, someone in the WWE front office has convinced management to give the former ROH champion a chance, despite his physical appearance not being up to the company's standards.
May 19, 2014
Vince McMahon
Reports are surfacing that there is some backstage heat between Vince McMahon and Triple H at the moment over the main event of Wrestlemania 31. McMahon wants Brock Lesnar to defend the title against the Rock, as he feels that those two guys would produce the biggest draw of a match for WWE. HHH, however, wants the company to elevate Roman Reigns by having him challenge Lesnar.
August 18, 2014
Rock
Since Hercules has been deemed a bit of a disappointment, there are talks that the Rock might miss out on some opportunities in Hollywood. Rumors have it that the WWE legend is not all that concerned. His popularity has not taken that big of a hit, and it should increase when the next Fast and Furious movie is released. Studios are still interested in the Rock as a leading man.
August 15, 2014
Savelina Fanene
"My mom and my cousin, Savelina Fanene, were struck head on by a drunk driver this week. They lived. First reaction is to find the person who did this and do unrelenting harm to them, but then you realize the most important thing is my family lived through this, and we can hug each other that much tighter these days. Hug your own family tighter today and be grateful you can tell them you love them." - Rock talks about how a DUI almost killed his family
August 10, 2014
Rock
Since he is easily one of the biggest stars that professional wrestling ever produced, the Rock remains the top choice for WWE when it comes to the Hall of Fame induction ceremony at Wrestlemania 31. However, the company has now focused on Sting as a potential candidate to take the top spot in the class next year in case they are unable to convince Rock to participate in the event.

Kevin Nash
Earlier this month, rumors surfaced that Mickie James and Rikishi were candidates to join the Rock at the hall of fame induction ceremony during Wrestlemania 31. Another name that WWE has reportedly been discussing is Kevin Nash, even though the former world heavyweight champion has been vocally against being inducted.
May 17, 2014
Jimmy Uso
Another interesting name that has surfaced in the rumor mill as a potential hall of fame inductee at Wrestlemania 31 is Rikishi. The belief is that including him in the same class as the Rock, whom WWE is hoping will be the centerpiece induction at the event, makes a lot of sense. There is also the chance that a reconciliation and reunion with Naomi Knight and Jimmy Uso could be a big story.

Rock
While it was initially believed that he would be filming a video for the pay per view, it now appears that the Rock will actually be on hand for Wrestlemania 30 in person. He has been posting pictures on himself on Twitter, revealing that he was in New Orleans. WWE has been trying to get him back with the company for the last several weeks now.
April 5, 2014
Rock
"I don't know if anybody will ever accomplish what he's accomplished in the heavyweight division in that short amount of time. Had it not been for the unfortunate issue he had to deal with his stomach, who knows what could have happened if he continued to train, and continued to hone in on his skills. What he did was epic and historic." - Rock discusses what Brock Lesnar did in UFC
April 2, 2014
Hulk Hogan
Since the event is being held at a brand new stadium in California next year, WWE wants to have a huge hall of fame induction class at Wrestlemania 31. The Rock is their biggest target, but there are also rumors that management wants Scott Hall, Kevin Nash and Hulk Hogan to be inducted as the nWo that year as well.

Rock
Since he is one of the most known actors in the entire world right now, the Rock has been heavily sought by Hollywood studios for roles. Both DC and Marvel have expressed interest in the former WWE star playing a superhero in one of their upcoming films. Rock recently revealed that he has agreed to a character with DC Comics, but he is not giving any further details just yet.
March 25, 2014
Randy Orton

WWE decisions are sometimes garbage, according to Batista. During a recent podcast interview with Chris Jericho, the former world heavyweight champion stated that he was disgusted by how the creative department utilized Daniel Bryan after he was put over at Wrestlemania 30.

Jake Roberts
Rumors are floating around that Jake Roberts is in a coma. A large reason for that is because his lawyer mentioned that he was in a "coma like state", and people misconstrued that for the WWE legend being in an actual coma. Kizarny also took to Facebook to further explain the situation. He stated that Roberts is heavily sedated because the procedure to combat pneumonia is pretty painful. Kizarny also reiterated that Roberts was not in a coma.

Reports surfaced not too long ago that Bully Ray was leaving TNA, as his contract was set to expire and a new deal could not be reached between the two sides. Apparently, he is going to remain on good terms with management, as the former world heavyweight champion is still being advertised for Bound For Glory 2014. Team 3D is scheduled to be inducted into the hall of fame that evening, but it would not come as a shock if Bully ended up working a match on the pay per view.
