Mick Foley
While he may not be on great terms with WWE officials, Mick Foley apparently is still on very good terms with a lot of the performers. A handful of them, including Road Dogg, took the time and made the effort to go watch his comedy show in Ventura. The venue is approximately 90 minutes away from the Staples Center, where Summerslam 2014 will be held.

CM Punk
Showing that some friendships extend beyond the business, Undertaker and his wife Michelle McCool recently attended a comedy show featuring Mick Foley. The longtime WWE couple wanted to show support for their old friend. The two of them even went backstage to catch up with Foley for a bit. Several wrestlers in the industry, including CM Punk recently, have made the effort to go watch Foley tell jokes.

Adam Rose
Rumors are floating around right now that Adam Rose is expected to replace Santino Marella as the comedy routine on Monday Night Raw and Smackdown. However, those reporting on the speculation are failing to remember that Damien Sandow actually owns that role in WWE at the moment. Management is still not sold on Rose, so the chances of him being moved above Sandow isn't very high at the moment.

Colt Cabana
"Comedy wrestling is not easy. Santino Marella is one of my favorite wrestlers to watch. sad he's leaving the ring, but happy he made me smile." - Colt Cabana on Santino Marella being forced to retire from WWE due to another neck injury

Chris Jericho
Those who are eagerly awaiting his return to WWE may be disappointed to find out that Chris Jericho has signed on for a new project with Comedy Central. He will be starring in a digital series called Team Tiger Awesome, where he will be portraying a loose cannon detective. The comedic aspect of the show is that Jericho and his partner will share their feelings to kill time during long stakeouts.

There is a new comedy out in theaters called Haunted House 2, which stars Marlon Wayans, and Mark Henry has a role in the film. He plays a "big buff black inmate".

April 20, 2014

There are rumors floating around right now that Mick Foley is looking into the possibility of signing a contract with Ring of Honor. The hardcore legend is apparently a free agent now that his contract with WWE has expired. Foley was also recently spotted at a comedy show wearing a ROH tee shirt. No word yet on whether or not the company has interest in signing him.

The latest wrestler to jump on the stand up comedy bandwagon is Diamond Dallas Page. He is currently doing shows throughout Europe. DDP joins guys like Mick Foley, Jim Ross, Dolph Ziggler and William Regal in making the jump from the wrestling ring to the stage.

Mick Foley
Jenifer Bloodsworth used to be a writer for WWE, but she is now doing stand up comedy. Fortunately for her, she has a good friend with name value in Mick Foley.

Mick Foley
"I tend not to get hecklers. I tend to get over-exuberant wrestling fans. Fans who don't always understand that they shouldn't shout out the endings to my stories. Because, if they're fans, they already know how the stories end. Those people enjoy it, but it's frustrating they don't let me finish the stories. Fortunately, I'm experienced entertaining on Friday and Saturday nights, when some people are drunker than usual. But if that happens, I just stand back and let the club handle it. I don't fear a heckler. I don't take pride in shredding them apart, but I'm not afraid either. We're supposed to be having laughs... I take honor in the act of entertaining people who laid down their money." - Mick Foley talking about wrestling fans ruining his comedy shows
February 14, 2014
Chris Jericho
Since he walked out of WWE, CM Punk was forced to cancel an appearance on @midnight, a show on Comedy Central. The host issued a statement in support of Punk, and has decided to call up another wrestler to take his place. Chris Jericho will now be appearing on the show. He is scheduled for the March 3rd episode.
February 12, 2014
Mick Foley
Since he is quite ambitious and wants to see his comedy career really taking off, Mick Foley booked himself a lot of shows in the early part of 2014. He also scheduled those events in northern cities, where the weather is really bad right now. The WWE legend posted this status update on Twitter to make fun of himself.
February 11, 2014
CM Punk
Even though CM Punk dropped out on an appearance on his show, Chris Hardwick has no hard feelings and is actually defending the WWE star. He stated that Punk was a friend and that he did not make the decision to cancel lightly. The very understanding Hardwick is the host of @midnight on Comedy Central.
February 10, 2014
CM Punk
As was heavily rumored, CM Punk has been pulled from @midnight, a show on Comedy Central. No word yet on who pulled the trigger on the cancellation, but the belief was that it would not have been a good idea for the former world champion to make a public appearance since he walked away from his job with WWE.
February 9, 2014
Dolph Ziggler
WWE is hitting up California this weekend for a string of live events. Dolph Ziggler has been scheduled for those shows, and the former world heavyweight champion has revealed that he is going to stick around after the company leaves, as he intends to do some stand up comedy in the area.
February 7, 2014
CM Punk

On Twitter, Mick Foley made a joke to fans who are thinking about going to one of his comedy shows. The former WWE star stated that they were allowed to bring CM Punk signs to his events, which is basically mocking the company for confiscating signs from fans in support of Punk.

February 4, 2014
CM Punk

A lot of eyes will be tuned in to Comedy Central on February 12, as CM Punk is scheduled to make an appearance on a show called @midnight. Some believe that he might cancel the appearance since the host will more than likely be asking him about his backstage heat with WWE.

February 3, 2014
Brock Lesnar
Even though Brock Lesnar agreed to work more dates for the company, WWE still has reservations about having a part time world champion. Reports have surfaced that management is considering the possibility of having Seth Rollins cashing in on his Money in the Bank briefcase at Night of Champions. The move would require John Cena to regain the championship briefly.
September 6, 2014
Dean Ambrose
A Shield reunion could be taking place as soon as Night of Champions 2014. Unfortunately, though, the trio will not be on the same side. There are talks now that instead of doing a singles match between Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns, WWE could opt to go with a tag team match. Dean Ambrose would make his return and team up with Reigns against the team of Rollins and Kane.
August 26, 2014
Dean Ambrose
There is a split backstage in WWE when it comes to viewing Dean Ambrose as a main event performer. A lot of people in management do not view the former Shield member as someone of that caliber. He also has his supporters, and that group has probably increased in size after his superb performances with Seth Rollins at Summerslam 2014 and Monday Night Raw.
August 21, 2014
Kane
Expect to hear plenty of comparisons between Dean Ambrose and Steve Austin over the next couple of months. WWE is having the former Shield member take elements of the Austin character in an attempt to win over even more fans. While it was not shown on Monday Night Raw, the company is doing a story where Ambrose refused medical attention after being severely injured by Kane and Seth Rollins.
August 21, 2014
Seth Rollins
When it was announced that Dean Ambrose was going to be starring in an upcoming WWE Studios movie, the belief was that he was going to need to take some time off to film his part. It looks like the former United States Heavyweight Champion might only be missing the live events, as management still wants him around on Monday Night Raw and Smackdown to further his feud with Seth Rollins.
August 16, 2014
Dean Ambrose
On Monday Night Raw, fans saw Rob Van Dam being pulled from a Beat the Clock match against Seth Rollins. He was replaced by Heath Slater, who got the surprising win, thanks to distractions from Dean Ambrose. It turns out that WWE did that because RVD is actually not cleared to wrestle. He is still recovering from an unknown injury. For what it's worth, it appears that he might be fine soon, as the former world heavyweight champion is scheduled to head to Australia for the tour.
August 6, 2014
Dean Ambrose
During a recent interview with CBS Radio in Washington DC, Batista was asked for his opinion on Roman Reigns. The former world heavyweight champion stated that he felt that WWE is pushing Reigns a bit too quickly. Batista feels that the company would have benefited more by giving Reigns, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins a longer baby face run since the stable was really over with the audience.
August 5, 2014
Santino Marella
Since he is smart enough to know that a career in WWE doesn't last forever, Seth Rollins has wisely decided to prepare for life after his career as an in ring performer is over. The former Shield member has partnered up with an independent wrestler to start a wrestling school in Moline, Illinois. It is called the Black and Brave Wrestling Academy. Santino Marella recently did the same thing before being forced to retire from WWE due to neck injuries.
July 16, 2014
Dean Ambrose
During the main event of Monday Night Raw this week, it appeared that Seth Rollins injured his knee during an interaction with Roman Reigns. Rumors are floating around now that he is actually fine and was just selling the move. However, there are reports that WWE is simply downplaying things, so that fans will continue to be hyped for his upcoming match against Dean Ambrose. Fans in attendance noted that the referee did indeed signal the medical crew backstage when the incident happened.
July 15, 2014
Randy Orton
On Monday Night Raw, WWE was quick to set up the main event for WWE Battleground 2014. John Cena will defend the heavyweight championship in a fatal four way match against Roman Reigns, Randy Orton and Kane. The move was set up by Triple H, who did not reveal his reasoning for putting Reigns, an adversary, into the title match instead of Seth Rollins.
July 1, 2014
Kane
In a very exciting match, Seth Rollins outlasted Dean Ambrose, Dolph Ziggler, Kofi Kingston, Rob Van Dam and Jack Swagger to capture the briefcase at Money in the Bank 2014. WWE wants to continue the war between Ambrose and the Authority, so they had Kane coming out and providing assistance to Rollins. Despite the heel tactic to win the match, the Rollins victory was actually cheered by a good amount of fans.
June 29, 2014
Kane
Thanks to the help of Kane, Seth Rollins was able to climb the ladder uninterrupted and win the briefcase at Money in the Bank 2014. The Big Red Monster came to the ring and attacked Dean Ambrose to clear the path. Kofi Kingston, Dolph Ziggler, Jack Swagger and Rob Van Dam were all laid out on the floor during the finale. WWE power couple Triple H and Stephanie McMahon came out afterwards to congratulate Rollins.
June 29, 2014
Dean Ambrose
Some big things are happening for Seth Rollins. Aside from being split up from Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose, the WWE star is also now engaged to his longtime girlfriend. No word yet on when the wedding date will be. However, the belief is that he will not be missing any television time for it, especially since he is being given a singles push now.
June 27, 2014
Dean Ambrose
There are rumors floating around right now that Dean Ambrose has a new ring gear, which reportedly will be jeans and a tank top. However, that could just be speculations from WWE fans because Seth Rollins recently was given a new outfit to wear in the ring. Ambrose is still a member of the Shield with Roman Reigns, so they don't necessarily need to change what they wear.
June 18, 2014
Seth Rollins
Looks like WWE wants to spike interest in the upcoming Money in the Bank 2014 pay per view, as the company has decided to add a second ladder match to the show. The belief is that the match will involve a couple of guys that are a little lower on the card but are capable of producing entertaining spots. Thus far, the first person announced for the match is Seth Rollins.
June 17, 2014
Seth Rollins
When WWE abruptly had Seth Rollins turning on the Shield, they had to quickly put together things for his new character. The company came up with a new entrance theme song for him to use since it would not make sense for him to use the old one. Apparently, the song was not well received by management, so a new one has already been ordered for Rollins.
June 15, 2014
Bray Wyatt
Over the last year, fans became aware that Roman Reigns was on the fast track to the main event scene in WWE. The company views him as a potentially big superstar, and they put that to the test this weekend at a live event in Canada. Reigns was given a headlining spot against Bray Wyatt in a Hamilton street fight, which featured interference from both Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins. WWE is showing a lot of faith in Reigns by letting him close out the show on top.
June 15, 2014
Randy Orton
When Seth Rollins turned on the Shield and joined Triple H and Randy Orton, fans wondered which of his former partners WWE was going to have him feuding with first. It appears that the choice is going to be Dean Ambrose. The two of them worked a match at a live event in Ontario this weekend, meaning that they could have been getting in some practice before working matches on television. Rollins will eventually feud with Roman Reigns down the line as well.
June 15, 2014
Seth Rollins
In a sign of how quickly the heel turn decision was made, WWE still has yet to figure out what new gear Seth Rollins will be wearing now that he is a solo performer. That is one of the reasons why he still continues to wear the same gear as his former partners in the Shield, Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns. Since it is viewed as one of the top priorities backstage, you can expect WWE to produce something new for him to wear soon enough.
June 13, 2014
Roman Reigns
When he turned his back on Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns, many were under the impression that Seth Rollins would be joining Triple H and Randy Orton in Evolution. However, WWE is having second thoughts on that plan, as there are currently nothing concrete about him being an official member of the stable. Rollins will simply be utilized as a heel who is allied with the Authority.
