Sam Shaw
Since management is planning to give him a nice push, Sam Shaw is expected to go over Mr Anderson at the TNA Lockdown 2014 pay per view. Management feels that Anderson has enough credibility to provide Shaw.

Sam Shaw
Since TNA decided to shift Mr Anderson into a program with Sam Shaw, there is now a need to find an opponent for Bully Ray.

"I must tell you that I commented that night when he did come on stage with his two beautiful little girls looking so proud, as he was as well, but when they left and went to the back, I noticed it even more... I felt that he wasn't walking well and I thought that was due to some injuries that caused that. I also noticed that when he came to speak, that he seemed, I don't want to say out of breath, but he was sweating and all that. I didn't think too much of it on the night and thought maybe he was nervous or whatever, but I just didn't feel like there was something wrong with him and I had no idea whatsoever as to what was to follow, that was quite a shock." - Bruno Sammartino discusses Ultimate Warrior condition before death

There were a lot of concerns about the company when they released several performers, so much of that should be alleviated now that they are signing new deals with their workers.

Mr Anderson
In a TNA Sacrifice 2014 match where the loser would be sent to the mental ward, Mr Anderson was able to defeat Sam Shaw by delivering the Mic Check finishing move onto the back of the van and tossing his opponent into the vehicle.

February 28, 2014
Sam Shaw
While Sam Shaw gets regular television time on Impact Wrestling each week to tell his story with Christy Hemme, he feels that it is not enough, so the TNA star has decided to keep things going on his Twitter account.

February 10, 2014
Brock Lesnar
Fans were a bit puzzled in regards to how Monday Night Raw was booked this week. John Cena kept telling fans that Paul Heyman only had until halftime to produce Brock Lesnar before an attack would happen. The incident took place closer to the two hour mark than halfway through the show. Reports have surfaced that WWE did this because Vince McMahon wanted to draw in viewers from the NFL game between the Indianapolis Colts and the Philadelphia Eagles. He used Lesnar and Cena, two of the bigger names in wrestling, to try to get fans to switch channels during halftime of the game.
September 16, 2014
Randy Orton
It looks like another wrestler is upset with WWE and wants time off. This time, it's Randy Orton. The former world heavyweight champion is said to be really upset with how management has been utilizing him. The belief is that Orton feels that he should be involved in the main event scene more frequently. He has been demanding some time away from WWE, but since the roster is so thin right now, management has only been able to give him time away from live events over the last couple of weeks.
September 16, 2014
Bully Ray
When his contract was expiring, a lot of fans wondered what TNA would do with Bully Ray and his stories since he was leaving the company. The two sides have reached an agreement to continue working together, so that the stories can be resolved. Bully Ray will also work the Bound For Glory 2014 event and be inducted into the TNA Hall of Fame before parting ways.
September 15, 2014
Triple H
Professional wrestling and football have long had a connection, as a lot of players from the gridiron have successfully made the switch to the squared circle. Triple H wants that tradition to continue, so WWE is now targeting more football players to join their developmental program. While there are a couple of guys already on the roster with athletic backgrounds, the company is looking for guys with more name value. WWE is also willing to pay these guys more money than the wrestlers.
September 15, 2014
Bully Ray
Rumors are spreading rapidly right now that Bully Ray has signed a new contract with TNA. The speculation stems from the fact that the company is now openly advertising him for Bound For Glory 2014. His contract expired not too long ago, and at the time, the belief was that the two sides were not able to come to an agreement on a new deal because TNA was still waiting for a television contract. There is also a chance that Bully Ray could just be doing a one time thing for the company.
September 13, 2014
Damien Sandow
If you watched WWE NXT Takeover last night, you know that Tyler Breeze failed to win the heavyweight championship. However, management might have something better for him. Reports have surfaced that Breeze is on the verge of being given a promotion to the main roster, where the cocky character will be joining the entourage of the Miz, which already features Damien Sandow.
September 12, 2014
Vince McMahon
Some rumors floated around this week that WWE was looking to sell their entire tape library to Warner Bros. That caused a lot of gullible fans to believe that Vince McMahon was giving up on the WWE Network. Rumors are false, as the article was filled with quite a bit of inaccuracies, including the statement that Cinadigm was the actual owner of the footage.
September 12, 2014
Brock Lesnar
Over the last couple of weeks, there has been a bit of a struggle backstage in WWE. On one side is Vince McMahon, who wants John Cena to be booked as dominant as possible, so that fans will buy into his upcoming rematch against Brock Lesnar at Night of Champions 2014. On the other side is everyone else, who does not believe that Cena should be dominating the other performers on the roster that much.
September 12, 2014
Dixie Carter
Dixie Carter has remained steadfast in TNA being able to keep Impact Wrestling on television. While a deal with Spike is now unlikely, the company has received interest from Velocity and WGN. The latest reports are saying that there are two other networks, which are currently unnamed at this time, interested. One of the networks is said to even be stronger than Spike.
September 11, 2014
Adam Rose
Since the bunny that accompanies Adam Rose has been featured more frequently on television as of late, fans have been speculating that WWE will eventually have him work a match. It looks like that might happen sooner than later. There are talks that Rose and the bunny could be teaming up to battle Heath Slater and Titus ONeil during the kickoff match at Night of Champions 2014.
September 11, 2014
Bray Wyatt
When he was feuding with John Cena, Bray Wyatt appeared to be a lock to remain in the WWE main event scene for quite some time. When that feud ended, he was able to maintain some momentum when Chris Jericho made his return to the company and feuded with Wyatt. Since there is a lack of top level talent in WWE, there are now talks that management could have Wyatt feuding with Dolph Ziggler over the Intercontinental Championship, even though it seems out of the norm for his character to chase a secondary belt.
September 10, 2014
Christian
For those of you that have been wondering about his whereabouts, Christian is definitely still with WWE. In fact, he has reportedly been medically cleared to make a return for quite some time now. However, management is simply choosing not to utilize him at this point. The creative department has not bothered to write a story for him. Some believe that Christian may never make a return as a wrestler in WWE at this point.
September 10, 2014
Michael Elgin
There has been a ton of speculations on the situation between Michael Elgin and ROH. The former heavyweight champion apparently is stuck in Canada and cannot return to the United States because of issues with his work visa. New reports have surfaced that ROH management places the blame squarely on Elgin for being unorganized. For those that do not know, he abruptly dropped the heavyweight championship under mysterious conditions.
September 10, 2014
Dixie Carter
While there has not been a lot of news recently about the television contract situation in TNA, there is still a ton of things going on backstage. Reports have surfaced that Dixie Carter has been meeting with potential silent investors. For those that are not aware, silent investors are those that do not have much of a say in how the company operates. There are talks that the investment amount starts at $10 million.
September 9, 2014
Michael Elgin
Rumors surfaced over the weekend that Michael Elgin had backstage heat on him from management over comments that he made about wanting to take a break from ROH and trying out for professional baseball in the near future. Reports have surfaced that those rumors are false because management is actually upset with him for doing the job to Trevor Lee at a PWG show. ROH rightfully does not believe that their world heavyweight champion should be putting people in other companies over.
September 9, 2014
Brie Bella
Brie Bella recently gave WWE fans some hope when she revealed that Daniel Bryan was no longer going to need a second surgery to repair his neck injury. Many were expecting him to return by January, which happens to be the month that Royal Rumble 2015 takes place. However, reports are now surfacing that WWE is trying to see if Bryan can make his return at Survivor Series 2014 instead.
September 9, 2014
Adam Rose
One of the growing points of emphasis on Monday Night Raw lately has become the bunny that accompanies Adam Rose to ringside. A lot of WWE fans are wondering who is the person behind the suit. Many of the guesses have been based upon the movies that the bunny does. However, management is simply throwing off the fans with moves like the super kick. Right now, the strongest candidate to be revealed under the suit is Darren Young, who should be returning from a serious leg injury soon.
September 9, 2014
Jay Briscoe
When Michael Elgin dropped the ROH title to Jay Briscoe this weekend, a lot of fans were puzzled about the move because it seemed out of the ordinary. Reports immediately surfaced that management was upset with Elgin because he publicly stated that he wanted to try out for MLB. That prompted Elgin to go online and deny that the rumors are true. He stated that ROH was quite supportive of his decision.
September 8, 2014
Dixie Carter
One of the more discussed topics online among wrestling fans is the future of Impact Wrestling, whose television contract with Spike is expiring at the end of the year and is reportedly not being renewed. Dixie Carter has stated that the company is still in negotiations to remain on television. A new network has popped up as a potential landing spot, and that network is WGN, who used to broadcast WWE shows.
September 7, 2014
Lilian Garcia
When WWE was releasing employees left and right due to the forced budget cuts, there were several rumors floating around backstage. One of the stronger ones was that management would release Lilian Garcia and Tony Chimel. The idea was to replace them with someone younger and cheaper. Fortunately for the two of them, the release never took place, and they appear to be safe for the time being.
