A little stir was created earlier this week on WWE.com, as the website teased a dream match between Sting and Undertaker, which is something that fans have been clamoring to see for the last several years.

Vince McMahon
When the company gave away free trials of the WWE Network, there were a lot of concerns because of the amount of technical issues that were being reported.

Considering how smooth things went this past weekend, the CEO has to be quite pleased with the efforts of the technology side of the company.

As expected, there were several people who had issues with signing up for the WWE Network earlier today. An official statement about the matter was released.

CM Punk

In a move that seems almost too petty to believe, it has now been confirmed that the official WWE account on Twitter is no longer following CM Punk after he walked out before Monday Night Raw this week. The decision could have been made by someone in the marketing or technology department as opposed to Vince McMahon or Triple H.

Seth Rollins
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.

Seth Rollins
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.

On Monday Night Raw, WWE was quick to set up the main event for WWE Battleground 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.

Seth Rollins
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.

Seth Rollins
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.
June 12, 2014
Seth Rollins
Rumors going around is that WWE decided to do a heel turn for Seth Rollins at the last minute because they wanted to generate some hype and spike up the television ratings. If that's the case, then management is sure to be disappointed because Monday Night Raw actually lost some viewers this week. It wasn't a big loss, but many were expecting a huge increase.
June 11, 2014
Seth Rollins
In a pleasantly surprising move on Monday Night Raw, Seth Rollins did an unexpected heel turn and betrayed the Shield.

June 2, 2014
Seth Rollins
During the post show for Payback 2014, Roman Reigns told fans that he might have suffered torn triceps during the big main event match involving Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins, Triple H, Randy Orton and Batista.

June 2, 2014
Seth Rollins
A surprising buzz was created last night when fans made mention of Batista wearing blue ring gear at Payback 2014. At one point, it even become the top trend on Twitter, a fact that Michael Cole proudly boasted to fans.

June 2, 2014
Seth Rollins
A minor incident took place at the Smackdown taping in Atlanta this week, as a woman jumped the rails and attempted to attack Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns.

May 7, 2014
Seth Rollins
It looks like the rumors about a fourth member of the Shield is out the window, as WWE has opted to release Mason Ryan instead. The muscular wrestler was supposed to have been called up to the main roster to join Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins, but WWE changed their mind about splitting Roman Reigns from the stable. Ryan was signed back in 2009.
April 30, 2014
Seth Rollins
As of right now, there are still over 1000 tickets available for Extreme Rules 2014, including several expensive seats on the floor. WWE is hoping that the big time six man tag team match featuring Randy Orton, Batista, Triple H, Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns will help sell the remaining tickets, as the hype behind Kane and Daniel Bryan is not as strong as normal.
April 27, 2014
Seth Rollins
WWE.com is reporting that Billy Gunn suffered a serious injury during his match against Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns at Wrestlemania 30.

April 7, 2014
Alberto Del Rio
Some further details are being revealed about the incident that caused WWE to release Alberto Del Rio.

August 8, 2014
Vince McMahon
During Wrestlemania 30, WWE gave the fans a taste of what was to come the following year. The teaser video for Wrestlemania 31 revealed something that most fans already knew. The event is going to be held at the brand new Levi's Stadium in San Francisco.

April 7, 2014
Seth Rollins
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
Kane
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
Seth Rollins
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
Steve Austin
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
Dean Ambrose
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
Rob Van Dam
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 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
Seth Rollins
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
Roman Reigns
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
Triple H
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
Seth Rollins
There are a lot of rumors going around right now about John Morrison making his return to WWE in the near future. The speculations stem from an article that was on the official WWE website that listed performers who could replace Seth Rollins in the Shield. Out of all the names given, Morrison was the only one that was not currently under contract to the company, so people began whispering.
June 9, 2014
Seth Rollins

As of right now, the strongest rumors are that Rollins and Ambrose will be facing one another at Money in the Bank 2014, while Rollins and Reigns will have their match at WWE Battleground 2014.

June 5, 2014
Roman Reigns
A status update on Twitter from Drew McIntyre, where the WWE star mocked Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns for breaking up while he, Jinder Mahal, Hornswoggle and Heath Slater still remain a team.
June 4, 2014
Dean Ambrose
Ever since it happened on Monday Night Raw, WWE fans have been raving about the Seth Rollins heel turn because it was considered a surprise to many. The reason for that, however, is because it was a surprise to those backstage as well. The script for the show did not include that segment initially. John Cena and Kane were supposed to be in the final spot, but WWE quickly changed their minds and had Rollins turn on Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns instead.
June 4, 2014
Seth Rollins
While we will not know for certain until next week, it appears that Seth Rollins has joined Evolution after turning on Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns at the end of Monday Night Raw this week. WWE has some time to analyze the audience reaction, both in the arena and online, so they can change their mind before the next episode, but it appears this is the direction that they're going with Rollins and Evolution.
June 2, 2014
Triple H
In a rather surprising move, WWE had the Shield win convincingly against Evolution. Batista and Randy Orton were the first two performers to be eliminated from the main event match at Payback 2014, but both provided interference for Triple H after their eliminations. After taking a brutal beating, Roman Reigns picked up the win for his team. Many expected Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins to be eliminated during the match, but WWE opted to give them a dominant ending.
June 2, 2014
Batista
While the early rumors were that Evolution and the Shield would be doing a rematch at Payback 2014, word coming out of backstage now is that WWE is thinking about handling things a little bit differently. Management is toying around with the idea of doing three separate singles matches involving Batista, Triple H, Randy Orton, Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns at the pay per view.
May 7, 2014
Triple H

September 16, 2014
Vince McMahon
In a bit of news that is sure to cause mass speculations about Vince McMahon and company, it has now been announced that there will be a delay in the launch of WWE 2K15. The video game was initially scheduled to be released in North America on October 28. It has ow been pushed back to November 18. The official word given for the move is because both companies wanted to produce the best possible game before releasing it to the fans, but as many already know, that is simply public relations talk.
September 16, 2014
AJ Styles
During a recent interview, Dixie Carter was asked about the situation involving the departure of AJ Styles from TNA. She stated that she felt the company gave him a respectful offer. While she did praise him as a model employee, Carter also goes on to state that she feels that Styles made a mistake by not accepting the contract. The former world heavyweight champion has publicly stated that he felt that the offer was insulting.
September 16, 2014
Chris Jericho
If you're a big fan of Chris Jericho, then definitely check out Night of Champions 2014, as that will be the last time that we see him in WWE for quite some time. The former undisputed heavyweight champion will be working a match against Randy Orton. He finishes up with the company shortly afterwards. Jericho has a tour with Fozzy coming soon, and he will be traveling around to promote his new book.
September 15, 2014
Ric Flair
Since he has a history of partying and the company does not want rumors to run wild with internet fans, WWE has released an official statement in regards to why Ric Flair was recently forced to miss some live events. They stated that he was hospitalized and will be back with the company soon. WWE had issues with the former world heavyweight champion at a public event involving their upcoming WWE 2K15 video game a while back.
September 15, 2014
Dixie Carter
While reports are saying that their contract with Spike TV is expiring at the end of the year, executives in TNA are still making moves as if they are definitely going to remain on television. The company has now booked the Manhattan Center in New York City for three more episodes of Impact Wrestling. It appears that Dixie Carter is extremely confident that they will be signing a deal somewhere.
September 15, 2014
CM Punk
Since he no longer has the burden of the hectic WWE schedule to worry about, CM Punk has been enjoying his time tremendously.

September 15, 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
Ric Flair
Earlier this week, it was revealed that Ric Flair had to be pulled from the WWE NXT show. The exact reason has now been discovered. The former world heavyweight champion was in the hospital this week for some minor surgeries. No word yet on what those procedures were for, but none of it was life threatening. Flair is expected to be back with WWE after he recovers.
September 15, 2014
Jeremy Borash
While the future of Impact Wrestling is in question because a deal with Spike TV cannot be reached, TNA is still continuing to churn forward. The company is filming a new television show called TNA Legends, and it is being hosted by Jeremy Borash, who is seemingly the most versatile person backstage. No word yet on where this show will be airing, but it will be on television somewhere.
September 14, 2014
Adrian Neville
Yesterday, it was revealed that a couple of the WWE NXT performers have been booked for upcoming episodes of Monday Night Raw and Smackdown. Some further details have now been reported.

September 14, 2014
Jeff Hardy
Since he has a criminal conviction on his record, there were some speculations as to whether or not Jeff Hardy would be allowed to travel into Japan to work at Bound For Glory 2014. Sources are now stating that the former world heavyweight champion has been cleared to enter the country if he wishes. It is now up to TNA to decide if they want to have him on the show. As of right now, Hardy is not being advertised for the pay per view.
September 14, 2014
John Cena
While a lot of fans still have a hard time understanding why he is pushed so heavily by WWE, John Cena continues to rack up the numbers to let management know that they are making the right choice. Reports have surfaced that live events featuring Cena are averaging approximately $60,000 more per show than events without the former WWE champion.
September 14, 2014
Adrian Neville
Last week, wrestling fans were dazzled by Adrian Neville, Sami Zayn, Tyler Breeze and Tyson Kidd during a tag team match on Monday Night Raw. You can expect more of that in the near future, as the WWE NXT stars are being booked for more television appearances. Reports have surfaced that Triple H is the one pushing management to feature the developmental wrestlers more frequently.
September 13, 2014
Kenta Kobayashi
When he finally signed a developmental contract with WWE, many fans were under the impression that Kenta Kobayashi might be one of the rare exceptions who get to keep using their names. However, management opted against that and changed his name to Hideo Itami. The reason fro WWE doing this is because they want to be able to own the rights to the name in case he becomes a big star and leaves someday.
September 12, 2014
Sean OHaire
Earlier this week, wrestling fans were stunned to find out that Sean OHaire had committed suicide by hanging himself. TMZ has now revealed that he did try to get help over the last six years. It is being reported that OHaire attended rehab six times, and they were all paid for by WWE. Unfortunately, though, his addiction to alcohol became too much to overcome.
September 12, 2014
Jake Roberts
In addition to making an appearance at an independent wrestling show produced by Kizarny, Jake Roberts also spent the time to help train some of the wrestlers at the event. The WWE legend even got physically involved in the training, so that's great news for those of us who were quite concerned when he was in the hospital for a week.
September 11, 2014
Kenta Kobayashi
It has now been revealed that WWE pays their developmental wrestlers approximately $25000 a year. There's usually a two or three year commitment involved as well. An established guy like Kenta Kobayashi may be receiving a higher salary, however. The average amount is definitely less than what some of these guys with name value can make on the independent wrestling circuit.
September 11, 2014
Kenta Kobayashi
Originally, Ric Flair was scheduled to make an appearance at WWE NXT tonight at the Takeover 2 event. The former world heavyweight champion was supposed to introduce Kenta Kobayashi to the fans as a way to accelerate the fan support for the Japanese star. However, it has now been revealed that Flair has canceled on the appearance due to some sort of personal issue.
September 11, 2014
Antonio Cesaro
During a recent interview, Sami Zayn revealed that Antonio Cesaro actually made the request to management to go down to WWE NXT and work there.

According to Zayn, Triple H was really impressed with what he saw in Cesaro.
