Erick Rowan
The surprising face turn for Erick Rowan recently left fans a bit confused, as there had been no signs of that happening. The reason for that is simply because WWE did not have it planned out. The move was done at the last minute when management found out that Sheamus was being forced into surgery to repair an assortment of ailments. Rowan went from not being scheduled for Survivor Series 2014 to being in the main event.
November 21, 2014
Sheamus
Apparently, Sheamus is actually injured. Many were under the impression that the former world heavyweight champion was only doing a story line for television, but he posted a photo of himself on Twitter, going in for surgery. It does not appear to be extremely serious. The belief is that Sheamus is going on to repair several minor ailments that have been bugging him. He is expected to miss some time from WWE.
November 20, 2014
Wade Barrett
Another name that is going to be making a return to WWE in January is none other than Wade Barrett. His shoulders have healed up, well enough to where the former Intercontinental Champion is now able to lift some weights. Barrett needs a little bit of time in the gym, as his muscles have decreased a bit because he could not work out after the surgery. The belief is that he will be working Royal Rumble 2014.

November 3, 2014
Roman Reigns
Some really awful news for WWE this weekend, as Roman Reigns had to be rushed to the hospital. The rising star is undergoing surgery for an incarcerated hernia. Reigns will be forced to miss his Night of Champions 2014 match against Seth Rollins. Since the match was a featured one, the pay per view has suffered a bit of a blow. No word yet on what WWE intends to do with that slot.
September 20, 2014
Jim Ross
Not a lot of details were provided when Ric Flair was forced to miss a WWE NXT show to have surgery. Jim Ross has revealed some details on that procedure.

No word yet on when Flair will be returning to WWE television.
September 18, 2014
Ryback
Through his Twitter account, Ryback revealed to fans that it has now been 18 days since his surgery, and he has been recovering extremely well from his still unknown injury, which is rumored to involve his groin. He should be making a return to WWE very soon, as he is now pain free. He might not be rushed back, though, as management really doesn't have a story ready for him.
September 15, 2014
Brie Bella
During a media interview to promote Total Divas, Brie Bella revealed that Daniel Bryan would not be needing the second surgery that has long been rumored to repair his neck injury.

Naomi last worked a tag team match on an episode of Monday Night Raw at the end of July.
August 30, 2014
Konnan
As many are already aware, Konnan has been having issues with his hips over the last couple of years. It's the reason why he has been forced to stay away from the ring. The former WCW star revealed that he wants one final match after his next surgery. Since he is involved with AAA, the belief is that his match will be held for that promotion. No word yet on who he wants as his final opponent.
August 18, 2014
Shelton Benjamin
Another speed bump has presented itself in the career of Shelton Benjamin. The former Intercontinental Champion has suffered a serious knee injury while working in Japan.

August 17, 2014
Santino Marella

He did not mention WWE specifically, but the belief is that the company has left the door open for him.

In order to help promote her upcoming match at Summerslam 2014 against Stephanie McMahon, Brie Bella is on the road this weekend for WWE.

August 2, 2014
Daniel Bryan
Initially, Daniel Bryan had surgery to repair a seriously damaged neck. However, doctors found further issues for the former WWE champion recently. His shoulders are pretty messed up as well. Additional procedures could be required to repair all of the damage to his body. Bryan is out indefinitely, and there is no timetable backstage for his return.
July 10, 2014
Daniel Bryan
Some rumors have surfaced that Daniel Bryan is returning to WWE soon, and the cause of the confusion is over the fact that he was spotted in the ring with his wrestling gear on last night.

WWE is reporting that the operation went well and that Barrett is at home resting now. No official word yet on how long he will be gone, but rumors are floating that it will be for several months, which is why WWE stripped him of the Intercontinental Championship on Monday Night Raw this week.
July 2, 2014
Daniel Bryan
While there is still a chance that he was working the audience during his speech at Money in the Bank 2014, the topic of Daniel Bryan require a second surgery to repair his neck is a major issue for WWE. Reports are surfacing that if it is true that he needs to go under the knife again, there is a very good chance that Bryan could miss up to a year of action.
June 30, 2014
Scott Hall
A lot of rumors have been floating around as of late in regards to the condition that Scott Hall has been in at conventions and independent wrestling shows. Promoters and fans have been accusing the former WWE star of being in really bad shape, which has led to speculations that he might be losing his battle against sobriety.

Rock
Not too long ago, Rock revealed to the world that his cousin Tamina Snuka was one of the hardest working and most determined people he knows.

August 2, 2014
Daniel Bryan
In a rather interesting bit of news, reports are surfacing that the audience at Monday Night Raw did not react much when WWE announced that Daniel Bryan would be making an appearance at Money in the Bank 2014. That comes as a surprise because he was really one of the most popular guys in the industry before he left to have surgery on his injured neck. It should be interesting to see how fans react to him at the pay per view itself.

Tamina Snuka

May 31, 2014
Chris Benoit
One of the more recognizable moves in WWE right now is the Daniel Bryan flying headbutt. It has become a big part of his repertoire.

Some are citing the damage that it caused to Chris Benoit, who used that move routinely.
May 23, 2014
Daniel Bryan
WWE is wrapping up their tour of Europe and the performers will be heading back to the United States. The next episode of Monday Night Raw is taking place in Tennessee, and Daniel Bryan, who recently had neck surgery, is being advertised to make an appearance. This could be a swerve by Stephanie McMahon to further sell the story line between the two.
May 21, 2014
Daniel Bryan
Some good news coming out of WWE today, as it is being reported that Daniel Bryan underwent successful surgery to repair his neck injury. The procedure, which took place in Pittsburgh, went well enough to where doctors are stating that he could be released from the hospital within two days.

May 15, 2014
Daniel Bryan

May 13, 2014
Danny Burch
The release of Danny Burch was not a really tough decision for WWE. Management viewed him as damage goods after he suffered a serious knee injury and required surgery. It also doesn't help that Burch was already 32 years of age. WWE has been wanting to move towards filling up their developmental program with younger performers.
May 12, 2014
Daniel Bryan
On Monday Night Raw, Daniel Bryan stood in the middle of the ring and addressed the entire WWE Universe. He informed everyone that he was suffering from a neck injury and required surgery.

May 9, 2014
Brooke Tessmacher
"I've got tons of questions to why I decided to have a breast revision. There are several reason to why, but the most important complications are from my prior operation. I had a Capsular contracture on one side and on the other I had a ruptured implant. This is something that I have had for a very long time. I wasn't ready to put my wrestling career on hold to go through another surgery to have them corrected. I felt this was the perfect time for me to finally fix something that was awful for so long. Hope I answered your questions." - Brooke Tessmacher talks about repairing her breast implants
April 29, 2014
Jake Roberts
Over the weekend, Jake Roberts worked an independent wrestling show in Maryland, where the legendary WWE performer was victorious in a six man tag team match.

March 24, 2014
Bobby Lashley
Since he is expected to make his return in a couple of weeks, there are rumors now that TNA could have Kurt Angle teaming up with Bobby Lashley.

March 24, 2014
Katsuyori Shibata
Just two months after undergoing surgery for his elbow, Shelton Benjamin is back in action. He is currently in New Japan, where he is working a big tournament for the company. The former WWE star has done well thus far, recently defeating Katsuyori Shibata and advancing to the next round.

Scotty 2 Hotty
"You know what's so cool wrestling for them now? When you're there as a full-time guy and you're wrestling four nights a week, you kind of take it for granted. Everything is going 100 miles an hour. Whereas now, like when I went back for 'Old School' Raw, you go this could be the last time. And you kind of appreciate it more. You take it all in. And then same thing for NXT. This could be the last time I'm in a WWE ring. Hopefully it's not and chances are it's not going to be because I'm still in decent shape and relatively young. I'm sure there'll be more coming down the road but you say that to yourself and appreciate it." - Scotty 2 Hotty talks about WWE return
March 22, 2014
Rikishi
There are talks backstage that Heath Slater has grown really frustrated with his role in WWE. He has only had one televised win since November of 2013. He has also been utilized just once on Monday Night Raw this year, teaming with Jinder Mahal and Drew McIntyre in a losing effort to guest stars Rikishi, Brian Christopher and Scotty 2 Hotty.
March 4, 2014
Bayley

February 9, 2014
Scotty 2 Hotty

One of the individuals that WWE was most impressed with during the Old School Raw episode was Scotty 2 Hotty. He stayed in really good physical condition and was still able to work a very solid match. Scotty even nailed his trademark Worm move well.

Dixie Carter
Now that their long anticipated television deal with Destination America has been signed and sealed, Dixie Carter and the TNA management team will now shift their focus towards securing a television contract to continue airing Impact Wrestling in Canada. A deal seems imminent, as the company sounds highly confident in their ongoing negotiations with networks north of the border.
November 22, 2014
Kevin Steen
When you sign a developmental contract with WWE, more often than not, you're going to be spending a good amount of time in training and not on television. Of course, when you have the experience that Kevin Steen has, the wait is a lot shorter. The former ROH Heavyweight Champion, who is now going by the name of Kevin Owens, is scheduled to make his debut on December 11, 2014 at the Takeover: R Evolution event.
November 22, 2014
Dixie Carter
Now that the television deal is signed and sealed, Dixie Carter and her staff will be focusing on offering contracts to performers, both in house and free agents. TNA had allowed several of their starts to depart because they did not want to sign long term deals without knowing if they will remain on the air. It may become a bit of a race, as other employment options have sprung up for wrestlers over the last couple of months.
November 21, 2014
Santino Marella
Fans who tune into the next episode of Monday Night Raw will get an opportunity to see Santino Marella making his return to WWE. However, it is not the long rumored permanent one. The former Intercontinental Champion has been asked to make an appearance, so that he can promote his new movie with Larry the Cable Guy, who also happens to be the guest host of Raw. Marella is still working on making an official comeback some time in 2015.
November 21, 2014
Dixie Carter
One of the reasons why Dixie Carter found the Destination America deal more appealing than the others is because the network promised that they would make TNA a centerpiece. In addition to being given two hours a week for Impact Wrestling, the company will also be allowed to produce specials and secondary shows to be aired. The network is hoping to lure in professional wrestling fans to their other shows as well.
November 21, 2014
Mickie James
During a recent interview, Mickie James was asked about a possible WWE return. She reiterated that she was definitely interested in doing so. However, she firmly stated that she would only do so as an in ring performer. Mickie refuses to be a trainer, something that the company has reportedly shown interest in. Her reasoning for wanting to wrestle instead of train is because she wholeheartedly believes that she is better than the majority of divas in WWE.
November 21, 2014
Diamond Dallas Page
As many of you already now, Diamond Dallas Page has found a great deal of success after professional wrestling.

November 20, 2014
Daniel Bryan
Fans at WWE live events have noticed that the company has been greatly reducing the price on Daniel Bryan merchandise over the last couple of weeks. That has led to some speculation about the future of the former world heavyweight champion, who has been out of action because of a severe neck injury. The belief is that management is simply trying to clear out the merchandise, and that it has no bearing on what will happen with Bryan.
November 20, 2014
Sheamus
During a recent interview, Sheamus stated that he was a big comic book fan, and he would absolutely love to play Venom in the upcoming film. That has led to rumors about the former world heavyweight champion actually being in line for the role. That is simply not the case. He was basically expressing his desire. Nothing more than that. Hollywood will more than likely go with an established actor in the movie.
November 19, 2014
Bray Wyatt
Someone in the WWE front office has not been paying attention to the story lines. On Monday Night Raw, Jack Swagger was injured by the Authority and removed from Survivor Series 2015. However, when the show runners needed someone to work against Bray Wyatt on Main Event this week, they accidentally chose Swagger as the opponent, not realizing that he should be kept off of television for a couple of weeks.
November 19, 2014
Dixie Carter
After months of speculations, TNA has finally announced that they have a new television deal in place. Dixie Carter had promised everyone that it was going to happen, but there was a lot of skepticism that surrounded the statement.

No word yet on when the first episode will be airing, but the belief is that we might need to wait until January.
November 19, 2014
Chris Jericho
Fans got a quick glimpse of Chris Jericho this week, as the former world heavyweight champion decided to help out WWE on the European tour. Now, reports have surfaced that Jericho is going to be making his return to the company in early January, just in time to get thrown into the Royal Rumble 2015 pay per view.

November 18, 2014
Rock
After conquering the world of professional wrestling and Hollywood, the Rock has earned himself the right to live his life as he pleases. One of the things that the former WWE champion always wanted to try was stand up comedy. He pleasantly surprised some people at the Hollywood Improv this week when he showed up unannounced and did a quick routine. No word yet on whether or not the Rock plans to keep doing shows.
November 18, 2014
Tara
Generally, Tara is usually upbeat and fun on social media, but the former TNA Knockout is going through some drama right now. She posted the phone number for a woman named Liz on Twitter. When asked by fans as to who that is, Tara stated that it was the girl that has been sending text messages to her husband during all hours of the day and night.

November 18, 2014
Alberto Del Rio
Now that he is free and clear of his contact with WWE, Alberto Del Rio has announced that he will be signing deals with two promotions in January.

The second deal is still a mystery, but it could be TNA or Global Force Wrestling.
November 17, 2014
Bret Hart
While a lot of wrestling fans view Chris Jericho as one of the best in ring performers in the history of the industry, Bret Hart thinks that Jericho has a really bad habit in the ring. During a recent interview, when asked about the current WWE product, Hart revealed that he does not like how Jericho is constantly caught calling spots in the ring. He feels that it takes the realism away from the match.
November 16, 2014
Alberto Del Rio
Various reports have surfaced over the last couple of days about the details of the settlement between Alberto Del Rio and WWE. The speculation about him being allowed to immediately work in America were confirmed tonight, as the former world heavyweight champion made a surprise appearance at the House of Hardcore event, held by Tommy Dreamer. Ricardo Rodriguez also showed up with him as well.
November 15, 2014
AJ Lee
Through Twitter, CM Punk revealed to his fans that has now been married to AJ Lee for exactly six months. He joked that people thought they were not going to last, so he wants them to pay up on the bet. AJ made a joke as well. The WWE Divas Champion noted how the two of them were buddies on screen not too long ago. Thus far, their marriage has not affected business relationships for either of them.
November 15, 2014
Ethan Carter
Since TNA has not been filming new episodes of Impact Wrestling on a regular basis, a lot of the performers have been finding work on the independent wrestling circuit. Ethan Carter just proved how risky that is. He tore his biceps during a match this week. The injury will cause him to miss the House of Hardcore event this weekend, where he was scheduled to work a big match against Tommy Dreamer, the man promoting the show.
November 15, 2014
