Maryse is said to be less resistant towards coming back lately.
April 4, 2014
Sting
Since he is going to be in New Orleans this weekend for WrestleCon, there are heavy speculations that Sting could be showing up at Wrestlemania 30 as well.

April 2, 2014
Sting
When 2014 started, WWE fans had high hopes that this would be the year when Sting finally makes his appearance at Wrestlemania.

Triple H
Some rumors are floating around this weekend that WWE is trying to sign Samoa Joe. The source of the speculations is said to be due to the fact that Triple H briefly followed Joe on Twitter. Sources are saying that Joe followed HHH back on the social media site, which means that they had the option for two way communications for a period of time this weekend. WWE has long avoided the signing of Joe, so this would be quite an interesting move if true.
July 6, 2014
Eric Young
Since MVP has a badly injured knee, TNA decided to change up the main event of Slammiversary 2014. Eric Young will still be defending the world heavyweight championship in a steel cage at the event, but he's now going to be doing so against two opponents. The winners of the respective matches between Samoa Joe, Bobby Lashley, Kenny King and Austin Aries will be challenging Young for the belt.
June 13, 2014
Kenny King
In case you did not catch Impact Wrestling this week, Samoa Joe made his return to TNA.

Dixie Carter
In approximately two years, TNA has reduced the amount of contracted performers by nearly half, going from 60 to 33 during that stretch of time. Dixie Carter and company have been forced to allow performers to leave whenever their contracts expire because they need to become fiscally responsible if they wish to remain in business. Rumor has it that only Kurt Angle, Jeff Hardy, Bully Ray, Samoa Joe, Abyss, James Storm, Bobby Roode and Mr Anderson have big salaries.
May 15, 2014
Samoa Joe

April 19, 2014
Samoa Joe
"A unique athlete, it's funny because he was a book that was judged by his cover, for a very long time and it took a while to get him into TNA and we were always fighting to get him in. Everybody was like 'we gotta change his look and blah blah blah,' but finally when they gave him the chance, he showed them that you didn't need to judge him by the cover because he brings a unique intensity and a unique character to TNA and I think it would be a different TNA without him. He has changed the business." - Christopher Daniels discusses Samoa Joe
April 15, 2014
Low Ki

Dixie Carter
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.

March 8, 2014

February 26, 2014
Samoa Joe
While there are those backstage that believe that he is deserving of another title reign, the belief right now is that Samoa Joe will not be taking the belt from Brutus Magnus. TNA wants to give him a nice long reign to build up his heel heat, so that when the time is right, a baby face would get the huge victory over him.
February 26, 2014
Samoa Joe
Reports recently spread that Samoa Joe gave a huge speech to the other TNA performers on the tour bus while the company was in England. The speech was said to have incited a loud applause from his coworkers. Joe, however, issued this statement on Twitter to deny the rumors.

February 18, 2014
Samoa Joe
Rumors are floating around that several performers within TNA are loyal to Jeff Jarrett and are possibly going to jump ship whenever his new promotion starts up.

February 13, 2014
Bobby Roode
In order to help his new promotion gain more fans, the Great Muta is putting together a big pay per view in March. It now has a name. Wrestle-1 has revealed that the event will be called Outbreak.
