Batista
Due to his new found success in Hollywood, Batista is said to be holding all the cards when it comes to his career with WWE. Guardians of the Galaxy did extremely well, so he does not feel the need to return to professional wrestling. Rumors have surfaced that the former world heavyweight champion would only be interested in doing another match if it meant that he would receive a huge pay day at Wrestlemania 31.

Batista
Initially, the belief was that Batista would make a return to WWE after he was done promoting Guardians of the Galaxy. However, reports are now surfacing that he could be completely done with professional wrestling. The belief is that the movie studios are against the idea of him risking injuries by being an in ring performer again. Batista could have no choice but to comply since he wants his career in Hollywood to keep growing.

Batista
Earlier this week, Batista revealed that he was willing to work with Titus ONeil because he wanted to help his friend become a star in WWE. As of right now, management does not appear interested in the idea. While they do want to appease Batista since he is building his name in Hollywood, they seem more interested in using him against other big name performers instead.

Batista
In another sign that he is moving closer to a full jump to Hollywood, Batista recently discussed his wishes for a retirement match. The former WWE champion would like to do another big match at Wrestlemania against Triple H, who he feels is still the best worker in the business. Management might be willing to do that at Wrestlemania 31 to capitalize on his name value being increased because of Guardians of the Galaxy.
August 15, 2014
Rock
Since Hercules has been deemed a bit of a disappointment, there are talks that the Rock might miss out on some opportunities in Hollywood. Rumors have it that the WWE legend is not all that concerned. His popularity has not taken that big of a hit, and it should increase when the next Fast and Furious movie is released. Studios are still interested in the Rock as a leading man.
August 15, 2014
Batista
There are rumors floating around that Batista might not actually return to WWE after all. Guardians of the Galaxy has been quite successful, and the second movie has already been signed. Batista is already attached to the Kickboxer remake. He may come back to WWE for one more appearance, but the risk of being injured in the wrestling ring might not make much sense any more to a Hollywood star.
August 8, 2014
Dolph Ziggler
WWE has announced that Dolph Ziggler will be challenging the Miz at Summerslam 2014 for the Intercontinental Championship. While his popularity remains pretty strong, this is not a push for Ziggler. Management simply needed a mid card baby face to put over Miz. A title change is not expected to take place, as the company wants to see how far this Hollywood character can go.
August 5, 2014
Batista
News coming out of Comic Con is that a sequel to Guardians of the Galaxy has already been set. For WWE fans, that means that Batista will need more time off to work on the film. No word yet on whether or not he plans to remain in the professional wrestling industry since his movie career is moving forward, however. Depending on the success of the first film, Batista could land other roles in Hollywood, which would entice him to leave WWE.
July 27, 2014
Chris Jericho
Chris Jericho and Fozzy performed a concert at the world famous Whisky A Go Go in Hollywood last night. He was not the only WWE performer in the building. Miz and his wife Maryse Ouellet, a former diva, were in attendance as guests of Jericho. The concert was just a one time thing, and Jericho is expected to be back on the road with WWE soon.
July 25, 2014
Trish Stratus
Since she has a little bit of free time now, Trish Stratus is dabbling into Hollywood again. The former WWE diva has been cast in an upcoming movie called Gridlocked, where she will be portraying a lead member of the SWAT team. The star of the movie is Danny Glover. The film is being shot in Toronto and London, so Trish will not have to be away from home too much.
July 23, 2014
John Cena
A lot of people backstage in WWE have been joking around lately about John Cena possibly being the next guy to leave the company to pursue a career in Hollywood. He's got a couple of parts coming up that might help him gain the attention of the studios. There are also talks that Cena is a lot more injured than he lets on, so an acting career might seem like a better option nowadays.
July 23, 2014
Rock
While doing an interview in Cleveland recently to promote his upcoming Hercules movie, the Rock was asked about a return to WWE and a potential match against his cousin Roman Reigns. The Hollywood star stated that it would not make sense right now for the match to happen because Reigns is not the top heel in the company. Rock floated the idea of returning as a heel, but that might not be something that WWE is interested in doing because they know that the fans will not root against the popular performer.
July 19, 2014
Rock
Even though he is now one of the most well known movies stars on the planet, the Rock still has a lot of ambitions in life. The former WWE star is now focused on producing movies. He is currently in negotiations with Universal to star in and produce a movie called The Janson Directive. The belief in Hollywood is that this will be a vehicle for Dwayne Johnson to do films that are similar to what Matt Damon did in the Bourne series.
July 9, 2014
Chris Jericho
There is a bit of misinformation on Chris Jericho right now as a couple of wrestling websites have reported that he will be touring with Fozzy while also working for WWE. That is not the case. The band only has two appearances booked in the next three months. The event in Hollywood, which was supposed to also feature Traci Guns, has been canceled. There is no tour.
July 2, 2014
Jim Ross
When Jim Ross was fired from WWE, a lot of wrestling fans naturally wondered what the beloved commentator was going to do with his time. Aside from trying his hands as a boxing commentator and starting a successful podcast show, Ross has also decided to give Hollywood a try. The Oklahoma native has signed on for a movie role in an upcoming independent film called What Now.
June 19, 2014
Rock
During a recent interview with the Hollywood Reporter, the Rock revealed that he was willing to come back to WWE if the company were to pay him what he received during 2013 or more. While the confirmed dollar amount was not reported by the company, rumors have it that Rock was paid millions of dollars for a couple of appearances and matches. WWE is trying to save money right now, but the belief is that the company would gladly shell out that money to Rock since he can generate more interest than everyone on their current roster.
June 18, 2014
Brutus Magnus
There's a pretty long list of wrestlers who have gotten into acting over the years. You can add Brutus Magnus to that group, as the former TNA World Heavyweight Champion has been seeking out opportunities in Hollywood as of late. With his look and weekly exposure on Impact Wrestling, he has a bit of an edge over new actors in the industry.
June 12, 2014
John Cena
Earlier this year, it was revealed that John Cena was going to be in a movie called Trainwreck, which is being produced by Judd Apatow. News coming out of Hollywood now is that the former WWE champion will be joined by LeBron James, one of the most well known NBA stars in the entire world. The film will be released worldwide in July of 2015.
May 8, 2014
Hulk Hogan
While there were heavy rumors that Hulk Hogan was going to appear in Expendables 3 with Sylvester Stallone and his all star cast, the move never came to fruition. Word coming out of Hollywood now is that Hogan will have a role in Expendables 4, a movie that could be heavily promoted by WWE because their audience fits the desired demographics.
April 25, 2014
Bully Ray
During a recent interview, Bully Ray revealed that he has been receiving some interest from Hollywood as of late. The former TNA World Heavyweight Champion also revealed that he shot some scenes for See Dad Run, an original series from Nick at Nite that stars Scott Baio and is executive produced by Eric Bischoff. No word yet on when the episode will air.

Low Ki
MVP is taking the weekend off from TNA live events, so that he can travel to England to work a big show over there for PCW. Promoters there have also booked Al Snow, Shane Helms, Low Ki and Chris Masters as well. One of the things that MVP asked for in contract negotiations with TNA is to have some freedom and flexibility to work overseas still.

Christopher Daniels
On June 6, Tommy Dreamer is doing another House of Hardcore wrestling event, and the ECW legend has stacked his card up tremendously.

May 20, 2014
Lance Hoyt
A promoter out in Phoenix is putting together a pretty big show called Desert Storm on May 18. Performers being advertised for the event include Chris Sabin, Matt Hardy, Austin Aries, Shelton Benjamin, Shane Helms, Trent Baretta and Lance Hoyt. In terms of the independent wrestling circuit, that is an extremely stacked card, so it will be interesting to see if the promoters can pull this off.
April 23, 2014
Shane Helms
Now that Jeff Jarrett has announced his new wrestling promotion, even more rumors have surfaced about which wrestlers will be joining him. Former WWE star Shane Helms has popped up as a candidate, as he is still in great shape and has been working steadily on the independent wrestling circuit. He has enough name value to help Jarrett get Global Force Wrestling going.

February 28, 2014
Jeff Hardy
While most people focus solely on the negatives of a person, Matt Hardy should be highly commended for his work this past weekend.

February 24, 2014
Shane Helms
