A lot of fans noticed something peculiar this week when the latest hall of fame induction at Wrestlemania 30 was announced by WWE on Monday Night Raw.

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.

September 2, 2014
WWE decisions are sometimes garbage, according to Batista. During a recent podcast interview with Chris Jericho, the former world heavyweight champion stated that he was disgusted by how the creative department utilized Daniel Bryan after he was put over at Wrestlemania 30.

Those that watched Summerslam 2014 saw Nikki Bella doing her much rumored heel turn. She is expected to work in that role on television going forward.

August 24, 2014
Rumors are floating around right now that WWE officials were not too pleased with the performance that Alexander Rusev put on at Summerslam 2014 in his flag match against Jack Swagger. His selling of an ankle injury was sub par, and the manner in which he sold it was not very fitting of his character.

August 21, 2014

August 7, 2014
WWE has announced that Dolph Ziggler will be challenging the Miz at Summerslam 2014 for the Intercontinental Championship. While his popularity remains pretty strong, this is not a push for Ziggler.

Del Rio did mention Rodriguez in his first interview, but it was done in character.
August 4, 2014
While the company would probably never admit it, there are those that believe that WWE is simply setting up Alexander Rusev for a potential feud with Kurt Angle.

August 3, 2014
Rumors are floating around that WWE is going to be bringing in another member of the Wyatt Family to help Bray Wyatt regain some of the momentum that he has lost over the last couple of weeks.

August 3, 2014
Even though the move was done at the last minute, the baby face turn for Jack Swagger has turned out a lot better than WWE had expected. Officials backstage are impressed with the audience reaction to the now patriotic character. A lot of that has to do with the heat that Lana and Alexander Rusev have generated. However, management will more than likely give a push to Swagger to see if the momentum can carry on.
