Antonio Cesaro
When Antonio Cesaro left him for Paul Heyman recently, Zeb Colter took to Twitter to ask fans who they thought should replace him and team with Jack Swagger in the Real Americans stable. Scott Dawson has been campaigning for the role through social media, but it is highly unlikely that WWE brings him up from developmental at this point in time.

Rock
While speaking to the media in Australia this week, Rock revealed that he wants to be in the next James Bond movie. The former WWE champion is a big fan of Daniel Craig, who plays the title role. Rock also noted that his grandfather once played a villain in a James Bond movie, and he would love to follow in his footsteps.

Barry Windham
In a sign of how much the company is vested into the character, Bray Wyatt is not allowed to do any media interviews. The Hernando Times in Florida did a feature article on Mike Rotunda, Blackjack Mulligan, Barry Windham and the family. It was revealed that WWE would not grant Bray Wyatt permission to be involved in the piece, but Bo Dallas was allowed to give quotes.
April 14, 2014
Sin Cara
While he has been protesting through social media and threatening legal actions, the original Sin Cara has not actually gone after WWE yet. The belief is that he is just issuing empty threats, as the performer has now gone back to his Mistico name and character in Mexico. It appears that WWE might actually hold the rights to the Sin Cara name after all.
April 13, 2014
CM Punk
Colin Cowherd, a host on ESPN, bashed CM Punk on his radio show this week. He was critical of the former WWE star for remarks that he made on Twitter about Ultimate Warrior's death not being a result of drugs. Unfortunately, though, Cowherd was not aware that Punk has not been active on social media since leaving WWE. He was actually responding to a parody account.
April 12, 2014
Ultimate Warrior
As expected, the death of the Ultimate Warrior has brought with it some negative publicity for WWE and professional wrestling in general. A lot of people in the media have focused on the fact that professional wrestlers have died young. Many are pointing out that rampant steroid abuse and drug use have taken away a lot of our favorite stars before their time.
April 10, 2014
Sting
After the death of the Ultimate Warrior, Sting took to social media to express his grief. The legendary NWA star also posted this picture of the two of them together before they became professional wrestlers. Sting noted that this was right when they were about to start training to become future hall of fame stars in the business.
April 10, 2014
Fandango
Despite being a pretty popular act, WWE has decided to split up Summer Rae and Fandango, who has been selling the story line through social media over the past couple of days. Fandango is being paired with another person soon, as his act needs a female dancer. Summer Rae will be utilized as more of an in ring performer with the rest of the Total Divas cast.
April 10, 2014
Vince McMahon
The Shorty Awards were handed out this week to companies that best handled their social media and social networking campaigns. Vince McMahon and company were able to take home three of those awards, including one for best YouTube channel. WWE was able to beat out Bleacher Report, MTV, VH1, Nike, Visa and Comedy Central for these awards.
April 8, 2014
Mr T
In a rather interesting move, there were minimal Wrestlemania 30 celebrities involved in the pay per view. WWE generally likes having as many famous faces around as possible, in an attempt to generate interest from the mainstream media, but the company opted to focus more on wrestling this year. Mr T was the most featured celebrity on the show this year.
April 7, 2014
Hulk Hogan
Since the company wants to make full use of him being back, Hulk Hogan is expected to induct Mr T into the WWE Hall of Fame at Wrestlemania 30. Aside from their obvious connection, management also believes that this combination has the best chance of receiving some mainstream media attention for the event. Roddy Piper was a consideration as well.
April 2, 2014
AJ Lee
The hot rumor going around professional wrestling right now is that AJ Lee and CM Punk are now engaged. There were talks backstage for the last few days of it being true, and the speculation even spread through to social media. The rumor mills are even hotter now that AJ was spotted on Monday Night Raw with a new ring on her finger.
April 1, 2014
Natalya Neidhart
Since it has generated so much of a buzz on social media and search engines, executives at E! and WWE are quite pleased with the segment on Total Divas where Summer Rae slapped Natalya Neidhart. While it is entirely scripted, the performers were actually able to get a good amount of people wondering if it was a legitimate situation or not.
April 1, 2014
Nikki Bella
Thanks to her featured role on Total Divas, Nikki Bella has seen her popularity rise. The longtime WWE has reached a social media milestone, amassing a million followers on Facebook. The company views her as a marketing asset now, so she should be regularly features on Monday Night Raw for the foreseeable future.
March 27, 2014
Brooke Tessmacher
When she made some changes to her social media accounts earlier in the month, Brooke Tessmacher inadvertently flamed the rumors mills with speculations that she was no longer with TNA. The former Knockouts champion has since made her return to both Twitter and Instagram with no mentions of leaving the company.
March 26, 2014
Dolph Ziggler
For more than a year now, Dolph Ziggler has found himself in the doghouse with WWE officials, and the belief was that his blunt media interviews were what got him relocated there. The former world heavyweight champion is doing interviews again, and this time around, he has been noticeably much more tamer with what he says about the company.
March 25, 2014
Corey Graves
Through Twitter, Corey Graves posted this message, where he mocks Total Divas. He joked that the performers are sharing their secrets with a national audience and expecting people not to know. This is keeping in line with his social media character, as the WWE developmental wrestler has also mocked the Shield and the company itself.
March 24, 2014
Tammy Sytch
It appears that times have become rather hard for Tammy Sytch, as she has been selling topless pictures of herself through Twitter and PayPal. The former WWE diva posted this teaser image, where her breasts are censored, on social media, in order to entice fans into paying $40 to see her nude from the waist up.
March 17, 2014
AJ Lee
Nikki Bella and Brie Bella have reached a social media milestone, as the WWE divas now have a million followers on Twitter. Their starring role on both Monday Night Raw and Total Divas helped to make that accomplishment come to life. AJ Lee is the only other female performer in the company that has broken the million followers mark.
March 16, 2014
Chris Benoit
While there were some concerns about his inclusion earlier in the year, it appears that Chris Benoit is basically a non issue right now with the WWE Network. Fans are not making a fuss about him being on the service, and the media has yet to really mention it, either. Management was concerned that there might be some negative media attention brought about by the inclusion.
March 16, 2014
Seiya Sanada
While rumors have persisted for months now that he was going to be leaving the company once his contract expires, there are talks that Christopher Daniels could be sticking around with TNA. Some are under the belief that a new contract has been reached, as he is going to be challenging for the X Division Championship against Seiya Sanada in Japan later on this week.
April 14, 2014
Seiya Sanada
When word came out that Christopher Daniels was on the verge of leaving TNA after his contract expired, the belief was that he would head to Japan to work. Apparently, that is true, as the former X Division Champion will be challenging Seiya Sanada, the current champion, at a Wrestle-1 show on April 17 in Tokyo.
April 6, 2014
Seiki Yoshioka
In an attempt to give the championship a little more prestige, Seiya Sanada defended the TNA X Division Championship in Japan this week.

March 14, 2014
Jessie Godderz
Even though he already has a hold of the X Division Championship, Seiya Sanada has his eyes on another belt in TNA, as the Japanese star will be teaming up with another newcomer, Tigre Uno, in a triple threat tag team match for the tag titles. Davey Richards and Eddie Edwards will be the defending champions, while Robbie E and Jessie Godderz will attempt to reclaim the belts they once held.

March 13, 2014
Rob Terry
Since he is now working closely with Wrestle-1, many were under the impression that Rob Terry might have been chosen to team up with the Great Muta and Seiya Sanada during TNA Lockdown 2014, but the move was something that management was against because they want him to return in a much bigger way down the line.
March 11, 2014
Seiya Sanada
Those that watched TNA Lockdown 2014 got a nice glimpse of new X Division Champion Seiya Sanada and Tigre Uno.

The company is hoping to revitalize the X division.

Seiya Sanada
Seiya Sanada is working the TNA Lockdown 2014 pay per view this weekend, and the Japanese star is already in America. Before heading to Miami, though, he stopped by New York City.

March 8, 2014
Seiya Sanada
At the Wrestle-1 Outbreak pay per view, Seiya Sanada challenged Austin Aries for the TNA X Division Championship, and the Japanese star was successfully able to capture that belt. He was already scheduled to work the TNA Lockdown 2014 pay per view, so you can expect him to defend the title at that event. He is also going to be working on Impact Wrestling this year.
March 2, 2014
Christopher Daniels
Shortly after announcing that the Great Muta would be wrestling at TNA Lockdown 2014, the company has now revealed what match he will be involved in. The Japanese legend will team up with Seiya Sanada and Tigre Uno to take on the TNA trio of Christopher Daniels, Frankie Kazarian and Chris Saban.
March 1, 2014
Dixie Carter
In order to generate even further interest into TNA Lockdown 2014, Dixie Carter has just announced that the Great Muta will be wrestling on the show. No word yet on who his opponent will be. Much of the card has already been set up, so there are talks that the Japanese legend will be working a match against Seiya Sanada, another Wrestle-1 star.
February 28, 2014
Great Muta
Austin Aries is one of the TNA stars being sent to Japan in a couple of weeks to work the Wrestle-1 Outbreak pay per view.

Sanada was the one chosen to challenge AJ Style for the world title a couple of months ago.
February 15, 2014
Great Muta

After TNA Lockdown 2014, Seiya Sanada is sticking around and working a couple of episodes of Impact Wrestling. The belief is that Dixie Carter and company will be giving him a nice push, as management wants to maintain a good business relationship with the Great Muta and Wrestle-1. They also want to entice other Japanese stars to come tour with them.

February 12, 2014
AJ Styles
