Rockstar Spud
With Jeff Hardy expected to return in a couple of weeks, there has been much speculation as to whom he would be working with on Impact Wrestling. As of right now, it appears that the former world heavyweight champion is penciled in to work a program against Rockstar Spud. Seeds were planted prior to his recent break from television.

Daniel Bryan
While many are under the impression that he is temporarily holding the WWE Championship until Daniel Bryan can return from a serious neck injury, word coming out of backstage is that John Cena is expected to have a lengthy title reign. Management wants people to believe that his 15th title reign is very important, so they might keep the belt on him a long time to emphasize that.
July 12, 2014
Daniel Bryan
Initially, Daniel Bryan had surgery to repair a seriously damaged neck. However, doctors found further issues for the former WWE champion recently. His shoulders are pretty messed up as well. Additional procedures could be required to repair all of the damage to his body. Bryan is out indefinitely, and there is no timetable backstage for his return.
July 10, 2014
Kurt Angle
Earlier in the week, rumors surfaced that a photo of Kurt Angle being passed out on a plane was spotted backstage in WWE. The former world heavyweight champion himself decided to address those rumors on Twitter by denying it completely. He also revealed that he has been sober for almost an entire year now. Angle still plans on negotiating with WWE later on in the year about a return once his contract with TNA expires.
July 10, 2014
Miz
Up until today, it was a bit of a mystery as to when Ric Flair would be making his television return for WWE. Well, that puzzle has now been solved. The former world heavyweight champion is officially scheduled to make appearances on the next episodes of Monday Night Raw and Smackdown. No word yet on what WWE will have him doing, but there have been rumors of a reunion with the Miz floating around over the last couple of months.
July 9, 2014
David Otunga
About a month ago, it was reported that David Otunga was on his way back to WWE. He revealed those plans to the media, but those plans have yet to surface. It is being said that management simply has not come up with a story for him to make his return to Monday Night Raw and Smackdown. Some are speculating that he could be a mystery entrant into the upcoming Intercontinental Championship battle royal at WWE Battleground 2014.
July 8, 2014
AJ Lee
While a lot of fans have high hopes of his return due to the fact that his wife recently made her comeback, there is close to no chance that CM Punk will be coming back to WWE. AJ Lee coming back doesn't have an effect on his decision to remain away from the company. Punk is supportive of AJ on her decision to continue her career in WWE, but he's going to stay away because he does not like the way the company treated him over the last year.
July 8, 2014
Curt Hawkins
While he walked away from WWE to focus on his business ventures, Tyler Reks is said to actually be open to the idea of making a return to professional wrestling. His former tag team partner, Curt Hawkins, was recently released from his contract, and the two of them quickly announced that they were available to work independent wrestling shows. There are also some rumors floating around that the two of them could be targeted by Jeff Jarrett for Global Force Wrestling.
July 6, 2014
AJ Lee
With AJ Lee finally making her return to WWE, the competition in the divas division just got a bit tougher. Someone is going to be losing television time. Naomi Knight and Cameron appear to be safe, as they have a heel turn story line in progress. Summer Rae and Layla El appear to have their weekly television spots secured for the time being. Paige is going to be working a program against AJ, so she should be fine. The belief is that Alicia Fox will be the one demoted, even though her character was gaining a little bit of momentum over the last couple of weeks.
July 5, 2014
Dolph Ziggler
Last week, Miz made his long rumored return to Monday Night Raw. However, he came back to WWE alone. Ric Flair was not by his side as expected. The legendary performer is still expected to make his television return soon, but it looks like he might not be paired up with Miz after all. Flair had petitioned the company to work with Dolph Ziggler, but WWE went in a different direction by pairing him up with Summer Rae instead.
July 5, 2014
Ric Flair
While his television return has yet to be finalized, Ric Flair will be heading to Australia with WWE when the company does their tour of that country in August. Since that is just approximately a month away, many are expected the former world heavyweight champion to be reintroduced on television to help with the marketing of the events taking place in Australia.
July 3, 2014
Hulk Hogan
When Hulk Hogan decided to return to WWE, there were those that wondered if he took a lesser deal to return to the company. However, it looks like the opposite is actually true. Hogan has a huge guarantee in his deal, which means that WWE will pay him even if he does not make appearances. When he does show up, he gets a sizable amount of money for doing so. Hogan also negotiated a deal that enables him to work outside of WWE. The deal is said to be heavily favored towards Hogan.
July 3, 2014
Bray Wyatt
Shortly after Chris Jericho made his surprising return on Monday Night Raw, the Wyatt Family provided a surprise of their own when Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan suddenly appeared in the ring to attack the former undisputed champion. When Wyatt was in NXT, Jericho specifically requested to WWE officials to let him work with Wyatt. The belief is that he did so again upon signing a contract to return.
July 1, 2014
Chris Jericho
Now that he has made his return to WWE, Chris Jericho is being added to several of the upcoming shows. The former world heavyweight champion has been announced for the upcoming tour of Australia, a country where he has performed several shows with his band Fozzy. No word yet on how long Jericho will remain with WWE this time around, but it is unlikely to be a permanent stint.
July 1, 2014
Miz
For quite a few weeks now, there have been rumors of Miz making his television return to Monday Night Raw. Some speculations have Ric Flair joining him on that return. With Money in the Bank 2014 in the books now, those rumors are heating up again. Some believe that tonight will be the night when they finally come back and start the push for Miz.
June 30, 2014
Batista
There is a feeling within the WWE locker room that management does not want Daniel Bryan back in the main event scene when he makes his return. Some are pointing out how he is being brought back in a minimum role at Money in the Bank 2014 as a sign of WWE downplaying his importance. Guys like Batista and Brock Lesnar would not be utilized in such a manner when they come back from their hiatus.
June 29, 2014
CM Punk
During a recent interview, Mick Foley was asked about the possible return of CM Punk to WWE, and the hardcore legend revealed something a bit interesting. Foley stated that he has attempted to contact Punk, but Punk has ignored all communications with Foley. The brutally honest Foley also mentioned that he believes that Punk is ignoring the majority of people in the industry right now.
June 28, 2014
Dixie Carter
Much has been made online by fans about TNA not being able to draw in big crowds for their live events. The recent Impact Wrestling shows in Bethlehem, however, managed to draw in more than 1000 fans each night. Dixie Carter and company are said to be quite pleased with the results and want to return to the area more frequently. However, the company is pretty much booked up until the fall.
June 27, 2014
Brock Lesnar
The rumors of John Cena winning the WWE title at Money in the Bank 2014 just got hotter now that the company has accidentally revealed a poster for Summerslam 2014, which features what looks like a main event match between Cena and Brock Lesnar. There has been speculations over the last couple of months that when the former UFC champion makes his return to WWE, he would be thrown into a title program.
June 25, 2014
Michelle McCool
While she still has every intention of being a stay at home mother and wife, Michelle McCool decided to get out of the house on Monday. She made a visit to the WWE Performance Center. No word yet on why she was there this time around, but she has been known to drop in and help do a little training with the developmental divas. Her appearances always spark rumors of a return to WWE, so don't be surprised if the chatter increases over the next few days.
June 24, 2014
Great Muta
While WWE did not feel that he was good enough for the main roster, Yoshi Tatsu still has a couple of suitors left in the industry. Shortly after his contract release, the Japanese star was contacted by All Japan Pro Wrestling and Wrestle-1, which is owned by the Great Muta, about returning to his home country. Rumors are floating around that Tatsu would prefer to stay in the United States, so he may explore his options here first before making a decision to return home.
June 23, 2014
Eddie Edwards
Wrestle-1 ran a live event this week, and a couple of TNA stars were on hand for the show. Rockstar Spud, Ethan Carter, Davey Richards and Eddie Edwards were all sent to Japan by Dixie Carter to participate. Great Muta even teamed up with Spud and Carter in a match. The belief is that we will be seeing more talent exchange situations between the two companies for the foreseeable future.
July 7, 2014
ODB
In an interesting and comical move, Rockstar Spud worked the TNA Knockouts only pay per view over the weekend. The event was designed to showcase the contracted female performers against females performers from the independent wrestling circuit. Spud worked near the top of the card in a match against ODB, which he lost, of course.
May 11, 2014
Ethan Carter
In a really one sided match at TNA Sacrifice 2014, Kurt Angle and Willow, who is the alter ego of Jeff Hardy, were able to defeat Ethan Carter and Rockstar Spud. Hardy hit Spud with a Twist of Fate, Angle followed it up with a suplex and Hardy closed things out with his Swanton bomb finishing move for the pin fall victory.
April 27, 2014
Rockstar Spud
Over the last several weeks, TNA officials have been busy, trying to secure long term deals on as many of their performers as they possibly can. One of the guys that has signed a multiple year deal this week is Rockstar Spud, who has been impressing everyone backstage with how well he has committed to his character. Spud is expected to be utilized in the ring more often in the near future.

To generate even further heat, Rockstar Spud will be hosting a special tribute segment to Dixie Carter on Impact Wrestling this week. The story line is that she has lost control of her company to MVP, whose team was victorious at TNA Lockdown 2014 thanks to the help of Bully Ray, who pulled off a surprising face turn that evening.
March 13, 2014
Samoa Joe
While he is not officially booked for an event, you can expect to see Rockstar Spud being involved in the main event TNA championship match between Brutus Magnus and Samoa Joe. On Impact Wrestling, Dixie Carter was selling the fact that Magnus would be out there alone. That is simply a set up for some interference from Spud.
March 8, 2014
Rockstar Spud
A rather interesting match took place at a TNA live event in Tennessee over the weekend. In order to fire up the audience for a backstage passes giveaway, Rockstar Spud played the antagonist by trying to prevent it from happening. ODB came out to challenge him to a match. She was victorious, so that enabled her to give away the free prize to fans.
March 2, 2014
Rockstar Spud
When TNA stars came back to the United States recently, one person missing was Rockstar Spud. He decided to stick around in his home country of England. Several episodes of Impact Wrestling have already been taped, so he was afforded that time. While there, Spud hosted a seminar to a dozen or so inspiring wrestlers in Dudley.
February 13, 2014

"I really am living the dream and returning to the UK, whatever the reaction, really tops its off. It has been a whirlwind year or so really but I can’t think of a better way to top it off than with this tour and getting to wrestle for TNA in front of my hometown crowd. It might be a cliché but it really is a dream come true, I have wanted to be a wrestler for so long and now being able to do it, is just amazing.”
