Hulk Hogan

"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."

April 19, 2014
Eric Young
Rumors have it that people backstage in WWE are amused by the fact that TNA put their world heavyweight championship around the waist of Eric Young. It is not so much a shot at Young, as many in the industry feel that he is a good worker and a nice person. The ridicule is more about how TNA went about with the story line of crowning him as champion.
April 19, 2014
Diamond Dallas Page

April 19, 2014
Antonio Cesaro
When Antonio Cesaro left him for Paul Heyman recently, Zeb Colter took to Twitter to ask fans who they thought should replace him and team with Jack Swagger in the Real Americans stable. Scott Dawson has been campaigning for the role through social media, but it is highly unlikely that WWE brings him up from developmental at this point in time.
April 19, 2014
Eric Young
Rumors have it that another reason why TNA gave the world heavyweight championship to Eric Young was to keep him from joining Jeff Jarrett in Global Force Wrestling. Young and Jarrett have a long history together, and they remain on very good terms. Since he is a very good worker and well liked backstage, TNA would much rather he stay with them long term.
April 18, 2014
Kevin Steen
It has been a couple of weeks now since Kevin Steen was rumored to have done a tryout with WWE, and very little news have surfaced since then in regards to the situation.

He seems to be doing just fine, however, as Steen continues to consistently be booked by ROH and the independent wrestling circuit.
April 18, 2014
CM Punk
Even though he has not been with the company for quite a few weeks now, CM Punk is still receiving paychecks from WWE. He still ranks among the top merchandise movers in the entire company, with some reports stating that he only trails John Cena in that category. Punk is still under contract to WWE, so management is still paying him his royalties.
April 18, 2014
Hulk Hogan
Earlier in the week, it was revealed that Hulk Hogan had been booked to work the Smackdown taping in London next month. Word going around is that the company convinced the former world champion to work the show because WWE has struggled to fill the arenas when they do back to back shows.

April 18, 2014
Brock Lesnar
The plans being penciled in backstage for Summerslam 2014 is for Brock Lesnar to make his return and challenge Daniel Bryan for the WWE championship. Rumors going around right now is that Lesnar will be taking time off until about a month before the pay per view. The former UFC champion would then return and state that his next challenge in WWE is to go after the world title.
April 18, 2014
Alexander Rusev
While management has not officially give him an extended feud to work with since his debut, Alexander Rusev is still being penciled in for a filler match at Extreme Rules 2014. He is expected to squash someone in a quick segment. Top candidates right now are Zack Ryder, R Truth and Xavier Woods, as those are the three WWE performers he has worked with lately.
April 18, 2014
Batista
Even though the stable was just reunited, it appears that WWE is already planting seeds for an eventual breakup between Triple H, Batista and Randy Orton. Through an online poll, the company has been asking fans which of the three is the most dominant. The belief is that WWE will go with a story line where egos break apart the trio like it did several years back.
April 18, 2014
Austin Aries
If you're a big fan of Austin Aries, then you're going to be disappointed at the upcoming rounds of Impact Wrestling, as the former TNA World Heavyweight Champion will not be utilized as frequently as he should. Rumors going around right now is that he had a big blowup backstage at a recent set of television tapings, and management is none too pleased with Aries at the moment.
April 18, 2014
Fandango
Even though her character was dumped by Fandango in the story line, do not expect a face turn for Summer Rae. The blonde diva will be working as a heel when she returns to WWE after filming her parts in the upcoming Marine sequel. Summer will also be utilized more as a wrestler this time around as opposed to being a side character.
April 17, 2014
Antonio Cesaro
The backstage gimmick for Antonio Cesaro is that WWE will try to get the fans to beg for a face turn. Management is still secretly passing out Cesaro Section signs to the fans at the live events. The hope is that fans will be clamoring heavily for him to leave Paul Heyman and finally become a good guy. If that works, then he can get his big match against Brock Lesnar in about a year.
April 17, 2014
AJ Lee
Since AJ Lee is taking some time off, WWE needed to find a challenge for Paige and the Divas championship. Management has opted to go with Tamina Snuka, who is expected to be the challenger at Extreme Rules 2014. WWE has been high on Tamina for quite some time now, and they have been looking at ways to reward her.
