Lilian Garcia
Earlier this month, Lilian Garcia and her band were in Las Vegas, performing concerts for NASCAR fans.

CM Punk
Since he is no longer on the road for WWE every single week, CM Punk has found himself with some free time. The former world heavyweight champion was recently spotted in the studios, recording guest vocals for a band called Madball. The belief is that this is just a favor to his friends, as opposed to Punk seriously pursuing a career in music.

The former TNA star performed a concert over the weekend at a venue called 227 Lounge in Etobicoke, Ontario, Canada. She still has an interest in returning to one of the major wrestling promotions, but she is also content with just doing music as well.
February 24, 2014

Through his Twitter account, R Truth mentioned that he and Wiz Khalifa, who was in the audience during Monday Night Raw, are talking about doing music together. The WWE star posted this picture of himself with the rapper on Twitter.
February 13, 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. The belief is that she needs more mainstream exposure to help propel her music career. However, it does not appear that Vince McMahon is interested in doing a deal.
February 9, 2014
Mickie James
While she is not in the national spotlight as much since leaving WWE and TNA, Mickie James is still working hard on becoming famous for her music. She revealed through an interview with the Baltimore Sun newspaper that she was currently working on a third album. It's at the very early stages, though, so no release date is known yet.
February 9, 2014
Dixie Carter
One of the most appealing things for MVP about signing with TNA instead of making a WWE return was the fact that Dixie Carter and company are more supportive of their performers doing outside projects. MVP specifically cited how management enabled Jeff Hardy and Mickie James to work on their music career while also wrestling.

Brooke Hogan

"Everything with this new music is so true to life. Every song, every video, every thought, every word is a direct account of events. Stoked."

Jeff Jarrett

With so many wrestling fans anxiously awaiting the announcement of his new wrestling promotion, Jeff Jarrett has decided to tease people by posting a video on Instagram. Thq quick video features some background music and the phrase "It's coming".

February 3, 2014
AJ Styles

How would you describe your two bosses Vince McMahon and Dixie Carter? You can't compare Vince to anybody, if it wasn't for Vince McMahon I wouldn't be here talking to you. He knows how to make money and make stars, I wouldn't be working for Dixie Carter right now if it wasn't for Vince McMahon doing what he did for me. Dixie is a woman and she has that caring aspect about her, sometimes she lets personal [issues] get involved with business because she can't help it. She cares about the wrestlers and their wellbeing and their welfare. Other than that I think Dixie has done a great job, we are talking about a woman that has been involved in the entertainment business but not the wrestling business. It is different when you are involved in music and go over to wrestling, there is so much difference, I think the last 12 years she has had to learn on the job and I think she has done a good job. I can't say anything bad about her, one thing I'll say is that I'm not sure she would have made it without the help of Jeff Jarrett because she did need someone to help transition here and there and Jeff has a great mind for the business. She has learnt a lot during her time at TNA but at the same time she has to make business decisions that she doesn't necessarily like. Lately she has made some very rash business decisions when you are talking about Hulk Hogan and AJ Styles but she has to do what is best for the company, if she thinks that is what is best for the company she has to do it. Would other people agree, no, but she is doing what is best for her company and you can't blame her for that."

Lilian Garcia

While management isn't exactly pleased with her music career, Lilian Garcia does have the support of her fellow WWE divas backstage, many of whom have publicly helped spread her music to their fans on social media sites such as Twitter.

January 28, 2014
Miz

"I'd want to see Ultimate Warrior come back and give like three clotheslines and a splash. And literally run around shaking the ropes and run back. That's all I want. All I want is to hear the music, run down, three clotheslines and a splash. 1,2,3. Run, boom, done. See ya, bye and I'm the happiest person in the world. I've never met The Ultimate Warrior, he's been my favorite since I was a little kid, so I'm excited to hopefully get to meet him at the Hall of Fame."

- The Miz

January 23, 2014
Mickie James

While she has been very quiet on the professional wrestling front, Mickie James has been keeping her schedule book rather full with her music career. The former WWE and TNA star has been booked for a concert tonight at the Grey Eagle club in Asheville, North Carolina.

Drew McIntyre

April 17, 2014
Jack Swagger
In an action filled Wrestlemania 30 kickoff match, Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso retained the WWE tag team championship by defeating Diego, Fernando, Curtis Axel, Ryback, Jack Swagger and Antonio Cesaro in a fatal four way elimination tag team bout. Afterwards, Cesaro did a face turn after Swagger attempted to attack him for being pinned.
April 6, 2014
Ryback
Rumor has it that there are several people backstage in WWE that are disappointed with how Antonio Cesaro is being utilized at Wrestlemania 30. Instead of being given a big singles match on the pay per view, he is working a kickoff match with Jack Swagger. It also features Jimmy Usu, Jey Uso, Fernando, Diego, Ryback and Curtis Axel.
April 4, 2014
Fernando
Initially, the belief was that the tag team championships were going to be given some spotlight by WWE at their biggest pay per view of the year, but it has now been announced that Ryback, Curtis Axel, Fernando, Diego, Antonio Cesaro, Jack Swagger, Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso are being moved to the Wrestlemania 30 kickoff match spot.
April 1, 2014
Jack Swagger
After changing their minds several times over the last couple of months, the decision has been made to put the WWE Tag Team Championship in a match at Wrestlemania 30 after all. Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso will be defending the belts against Jack Swagger, Antonio Cesaro, Curtis Axel and Ryback in a triple threat match.
March 25, 2014
Ultimate Warrior
At one point in time, there were talks between WWE and the Ultimate Warrior about the former world heavyweight champion working a match at Wrestlemania 30. The rumors floating around were that Ryback would be the opponent of choice. However, terms could not be agreed upon, so Warrior will just be doing a hall of fame induction that weekend.
March 24, 2014
Big E Langston
While a lot of fans bought into the hype of the match since a legendary name was attached to it, WWE is viewing the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal as an afterthought. There is even a strong push to move it off the pay per view and utilized it as a kickoff match, despite several stars such as Ryback, Kofi Kingston, Big E Langston and Dolph Ziggler being rumored for spots.
March 15, 2014
Andre the Giant
Last year, Ryback was given a match against Mark Henry at the pay per view. This year, he was on the verge of missing out on Wrestlemania 30 because he had been in the dog house with management for much of the past year. However, with the announcement of the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal, Ryback has secured himself a spot on the show.
March 12, 2014
Ryback
In a rather interesting move, WWE had Ryback come out to interfere in the match between Miz and Justin Gabriel during the big live event at Madison Square Garden this weekend. Ryback assaulted both performers, but they were able to counter him. Miz and Gabriel both hit their finishing move on Ryback to the enjoyment of the audience.
March 10, 2014
Curtis Axel
While he will unlikely ever receive a big push again, Curtis Axel is being praised backstage in WWE because of the way that he has been handling his demotion. Management stuck him into a tag team with Ryback and has not given them much to work with, but Axel remains a professional who comes to work every day.
March 7, 2014
Ryback
It appears that the backstage heat on Ryback has increased as of late. He has not been utilized on Monday Night Raw and Smackdown for quite a few weeks now. Management has relegated him to working the secondary WWE television shows. He has been booked in losses for five straight matches now.
March 6, 2014
Ryback
Once you get into that WWE dog house, it's pretty hard to get out. Management has sent more messages to Ryback this month. First, he and Curtis Axel are utilized as a filler tag team during the Elimination Chamber 2014 kickoff match. This week, the two of them are paired up with Jinder Mahal and Drew McIntyre in an eight man tag team match on WWE Superstars.
February 26, 2014
Goldust
While many were under the impression that Cody Rhodes was being left off of the Elimination Chamber 2014 main card because of his knee injury, apparently, he is healthy enough to work, as WWE has placed him into the kickoff match. He will be teaming with Goldust in a tag team match against Ryback and Curtis Axel.
February 19, 2014
Ryback
Last year, some buzz was created when Ryback deleted all of his Tweets on Twitter. Many felt that the backstage heat was the reason why he was forced to take them down. Speculations swirled even more when he did it a second time. Now, the deletion of posts has become somewhat of a gimmick, as he has done it again this week.
February 18, 2014
Jey Uso
While it appears that a push was started for Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso on Monday Night Raw, the feeling backstage is that they are simply being utilized as filler, in order to help elevate Road Dogg and Billy Gunn. WWE did not even bother including their match against Curtis Axel and Ryback on the Hulu broadcast of Raw this week.
February 12, 2014
Fandango
Since the company has frequently utilized the live events to test out potential feuds, there have been speculations that Big E Langston could be involved in a three way feud with Ryback and Fandango for the WWE Intercontinental Championship. However, it appears that management was simply filling a spot on the card with a random match.
February 8, 2014
Ryback
While they have yet to come up with something concrete for him, Sheamus is definitely a big part of the plans for Wrestlemania 30. WWE wants him involved in a high profile match in the middle of the show. Initially, he was scheduled to work with Daniel Bryan in a rematch, but officials are now leaning towards putting him against Ryback.
February 7, 2014
Sheamus

"I call dibs on GTS, Pepsi Plunge and running knee in corner. I am sure Sheamus will take the rest."

Titus ONeil

A shocking heel turn took place in WWE at the Smackdown taping tonight. Titus ONeil turned on his Prime Time Player teammate Darren Young during a match against Curtis Axel and Ryback. ONeil turned heel and vicious assaulted Young after proclaiming that he was tired of losing all the time.
