Roddy Piper

"This is WrestleMania 30. I've pinned Hogan once and he's never pinned me. From a fan's perspective, and WWE Universe and Vince McMahon, it never had closure. The business that would be done, the interviews and stuff would be coming from the heart. We could try to outraise the bar of the WWE entertainment machine in our sport, if they let us go toe to toe and don't script us. The fans will see really how it got started and why, and then they'll see the conclusion. They are asking can I get in shape. I am already in shape! They are asking Hulk Hogan. But there is a fear, I guess, of whether we can pull off the performance."

Josh Mathews
Josh Mathews might not be out of a job for too long. Rumors are floating around that TNA is very close to signing him to a contract. When he was backstage at Impact Wrestling, he did not seem like a typical visitor, as management was introducing him to people backstage. The belief is that he would be a valuable asset since he understands a lot about the production in WWE.
July 25, 2014
Rey Mysterio
A couple of months ago, Rey Mysterio was under the belief that his tenure with WWE was over when his contract expired. However, the company enacted a clause in the deal that enabled them to extend the partnership because the masked performer missed quite a bit of dates. Apparently, he is not too happy about that, as reports have surfaced that Mysterio has stopped cashing his checks in what seems to be an attempt to get out of the deal.
July 24, 2014
Triple H
On Monday Night Raw, Triple H cut a promo that took a jab at wrestling fans online. Some more details have been revealed now.

July 24, 2014
John Cena
A lot of people backstage in WWE have been joking around lately about John Cena possibly being the next guy to leave the company to pursue a career in Hollywood. He's got a couple of parts coming up that might help him gain the attention of the studios. There are also talks that Cena is a lot more injured than he lets on, so an acting career might seem like a better option nowadays.
July 23, 2014
Curtis Axel
Rumors are floating around that WWE is going to be splitting up Curtis Axel and Ryback very soon. Since neither guy has a ton of momentum right now, it does not appear that the move is being done to give them a push. WWE views Axel as just a guy on the roster nowadays, and Ryback has been in the doghouse with management for quite some time now.
July 23, 2014
Prince Devitt
Over the last couple of months, there have been plenty of rumors in regards to WWE signing international star Prince Devitt to a contract. Things heated up even more when he left New Japan.

Reports are surfacing that the deal has now been reached, and he should be showing up to developmental soon.
July 23, 2014
Brie Bella
One of the ideas being floated around backstage in WWE is to turn Nikki Bella into a heel. The story would be that Stephanie McMahon finally gets to her by getting Nikki to believe that Brie Bella has left her hanging. Nikki would grow tired of being abused by the Authority, so she ends up doing a heel turn against her sister. The story would more than likely be featured on Total Divas as well.
July 22, 2014
Alexander Rusev
Rumors are floating around right now that WWE has decided to drop the story line involving Zeb Colter, Jack Swagger, Alexander Rusev and Lana. The belief is that the company changed their minds after seeing the backlash from the media and the fans over the controversial promo that Lana cut at the pay per view. WWE did not let her do much talking on Monday Night Raw this week.
July 22, 2014
Big E Langston
Xavier Woods formed a stable with Kofi Kingston and Big E Langston on Monday Night Raw this week, and that has led WWE fans to speculate online about other potential members. R Truth has long been rumored to be joining the group, as he had an on screen partnership with Woods in the past. There is also a chance that WWE may simply opt to keep it a three man stable.
July 22, 2014
Bray Wyatt
As late as Saturday, management had plans in place for Bray Wyatt to beat Chris Jericho at WWE Battleground 2014. However, Vince McMahon called an audible and had Jericho winning the match. No word yet on why McMahon made this decision, but it is being said that a lot of people backstage were against the idea because Wyatt had already started losing momentum with the audience.
July 22, 2014
Miz
At WWE Battleground 2014, Miz won the battle royal to become the new Intercontinental Champion. Sheamus is the reigning United States Heavyweight Champion. The two of them are feuding. That has led to rumors of a title unification match taking place at Summerslam 2014. The belief is that WWE really wants to stack up this pay per view to build momentum for the upcoming subscription rush for the WWE Network.
July 21, 2014
Alexander Rusev
With the real life incident of an airplane being shot down in war torn Ukraine, there are rumors going around that WWE may be forced to tone down the ongoing story line with Alexander Rusev and Lana. Since a lot of people died in the incident, the company may need to be sensitive to the public right now. Vince McMahon loves pushing the envelope, but with WWE struggling financially, now would not be the time for such a move.
July 20, 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
John Cena
With the pay per view just a day away, rumors are firing up about WWE pulling the trigger on the Roman Reigns era. There are talks that he could walk out of the WWE Battleground 2014 pay per view as the new heavyweight champion. Management might be forced to give John Cena some time off to film some scenes in a big movie, so the title change has been discussed heavily over the last couple of days.
July 19, 2014
Angelina Love
Rumors are floating around that there is more to the story of Summer Rae and Layla El teaming up than what WWE tells us on television. Many are saying that the move was in response to Velvet Sky and Angelina Love being back together in TNA. Management wanted to reunite LayCool, but since Michelle McCool was not interested in making a full time return, they opted to go with Summer Rae, as the two of them share a physical resemblance.
July 19, 2014
Bray Wyatt
While wrestling fans online are downplaying the incident, WWE is a bit concerned that fans in attendance at the last episode of Monday Night Raw were bored with Bray Wyatt during his segment with Chris Jericho. The chants came as a bit of a surprise to management, as they felt that Wyatt was one of their more popular performers. There were concerns that he would lose interests from some fans once his program with John Cena ended.
July 17, 2014
Adam Rose
Rumors about former TNA Knockout Rosita joining WWE have been floating around for quite some time now. Well, things are heating up again. In addition to being utilized as an on screen character within the Adam Rose party posse, Rosita is also said to be one of the top candidates to compete in the upcoming season of Tough Enough, which has been delayed due to budgeting issues.
July 16, 2014
Sting
Fans weren't the only ones excited this week when it was announced that Sting was going to be on the upcoming WWE 2K15 video game. The performers backstage were excited as well, as many of them grew up watching Sting during his prime. It's still uncertain as to the extent of the deal that he signed with WWE, but wrestlers are simply excited to have him involved in any shape or form.
July 16, 2014
Bray Wyatt
When Bray Wyatt was accidentally busted open by some errant punches from Ric Flair at a WWE live event in Madison Square Garden this past weekend, he took it extremely well. Some are even saying that he looked like he enjoyed the moment with the legendary Flair in a legendary arena. Since he did not get upset about the incident, people backstage are praising Wyatt for his attitude.
July 16, 2014
John Cena
Rumors are floating around that the segment on Monday Night Raw between John Cena and Ric Flair was a subtle way for WWE to retire the world heavyweight championship belt. For those that missed it, Cena handed the belt over to Flair and told the legendary performer to keep it. WWE has not released an official statement on the matter yet, so fans will be tuning in to Smackdown and WWE Battleground 2014 to see the fate of the belt.
