Brock Lesnar
It was heavily speculated that Brock Lesnar would be taking time off after Wrestlemania 30, and it looks like the rumors are true.

April 16, 2014
Roman Reigns
While he has lost a bit of momentum since Royal Rumble 2014, there are still plans in WWE to give Roman Reigns a big push. Since the Shield pulled a face turn recently, there are talks of elevating Reigns to the point where he can be booked in a match against Triple H at Summerslam 2014. The hope there is that HHH can make him into a star by giving him a memorable match.
April 12, 2014
Damien Sandow
On Monday Night Raw this week, rumors about Rob Van Dam making his return to WWE turned out to be true. He came back and defeated Damien Sandow in a quick squash. Since he likes to take breaks in between wrestling, fans natural wondered how long he would be staying with WWE this time around. Right now, it appears that he will be leaving after Summerslam 2014.

Undertaker
While a lot of rumors are suggesting that he is going to retire, those backstage in WWE believe that there is still a possibility that we will get another Undertaker return in the near future.

April 8, 2014
Jonathan Coachman
It appears that WWE will soon be receiving more coverage on ESPN, as some sort of deal is being finalized between the two sides. Jonathan Coachman, who dropped hints earlier about the deal, will be heavily involved, as he has worked for both companies. Wrestlemania 30 and Summerslam 2014 will be receiving a good amount of coverage.
April 5, 2014
Batista
One of the reasons why WWE has been utilizing the two of them together on Monday Night Raw and Smackdown lately is because management is trying to build up a potential main event match between Batista and Daniel Bryan at Summerslam 2014. Batista is expected to be the focal point of the show since his movie comes out in August.
March 8, 2014
Rob Van Dam
While a confirmed date has not been given, we now have a narrowed down time frame for when Rob Van Dam is expected to return to WWE.

Jim Ross

Now that he is back on good terms with the company after the incident at Summerslam 2013 that cost Jim Ross his job, Ric Flair is being heavily rumored to join the stacked episode of Monday Night Raw on February 24, the same night that WWE Network launches.

Sean Waltman
"I got a sense he wasn't well. It was sad to me. He was kind of hunched over. He used to have such great posture. You just had this sense that he wasn't well. But he was in great spirits. He came up to (other wrestlers) and gave them hugs." - Sean Waltman discusses the health of the Ultimate Warrior during Wrestlemania 30 weekend
April 11, 2014

April 4, 2014
Uncle Elmer
Back during the 1980s, one of the most talked about segment in professional wrestling was when Uncle Elmer got married on national television.

Condrey reportedly did not inform Jim Cornette or the NWA, either.
April 2, 2014
Jim Cornette
While a lot of performers will say that they always wanted to be involved in the professional wrestling industry, Jim Cornette actually means it.

March 21, 2014
Bobby Eaton
Despite being one of the best performers in the history of professional wrestling, Ric Flair has opted against training others in the art of the game. In fact, the former NWA champion has only formally trained one person in his career. That man is Stan Lane, who formed the legendary Midnight Express tag team with Bobby Eaton during the 1980s.
March 20, 2014
Mr Fuji
When the future WWE Hall of Fame inductee made his debut in professional wrestling in 1965, there were not a lot of prominent Asia people in the country, so Harry Fujiwara, who was actually born in the United States, opted to stop using his real name and shortened it to Mr Fuji. It was easier for promoters and fans to spell and pronounce, and the move paid off rather well.
March 20, 2014
Bret Hart
Years before the Bret Hart screwjob in Montreal, Vince McMahon pulled the same trick on Wendi Richter.

Along with the referee, Moolah changed the ending and took the belt off of Richter, whom the legendary performer trained.

March 2, 2014
Fabulous Moolah
While a lot of people are aware of the match at Wrestlemania 1 featuring Wendi Richter going up against Leilani Kai, accompanied by the Fabulous Moolah, not a lot of people know the connection between the trio. Richter actually trained at the school owned by Moolah. One of her trainers was none other than Kai herself.
