El Torito
One of the ideas being tossed around right now backstage in WWE is to have Hornswoggle and El Torito wrestling one another on a pretty frequent basis. The two of them will be featured on Smackdown this week, and there could be more matches coming up. WWE had the two of them training together for a couple of weeks to ensure that the match quality is decent.

Mick Foley
"He was an intense guy, and he was a perfectionist. His career was based on looking as good as possible. That meant eating as good as possible, training as hard as possible, avoiding anything that a normal human being might reach out to in their everyday culinary affairs." - Mick Foley on the diet that Ultimate Warrior had

Bo Dallas
A video teasing the return of Bo Dallas to the main roster. WWE attempted to bring him up once, but they quickly changed their mind and sent him back down to developmental for further training. WWE will be using the "Bo-lieve" gimmick that he helped him gain a following down in WWE NXT.
April 10, 2014
Andre the Giant
While he has been training especially hard over the last couple of months to make it happen, it is being said that the biggest reason why Brodus Clay is being given a match at Wrestlemania 30, where he will be a participant in the Andre the Giant battle royal, is because of his involvement in the new Scooby Doo movie that WWE is promoting.

LeiD Tapa
Proving that she is far from done with the professional wrestling business, LeiD Tapa immediately has gone back to work after receiving her release from TNA. The former Knockout is back in OVW, where she is receiving further training and experience. Many within the company are praising her for the determination that she is showing.

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
Taylor Wilde
When she walked away from professional wrestling a couple of years ago, the belief was that Taylor Wilde was open to a possible return some day. When asked about it recently on Twitter, Taylor confirmed just that, as she stated that she would be willing to return to TNA if the contract was favorable. The former Knockouts champion has been training to be a firefighter as of late.
March 14, 2014
Michelle McCool
In a rather interesting move, Michelle McCool was spotted training at the WWE Performance Center this week. She was helping some of the developmental performers out. Some are speculating that she is interested in becoming a trainer for the company, while others think that she might just be helping out because her husband, Undertaker, is working Wrestlemania 30.

March 13, 2014
Seth Rollins
"I mean I started training in a shipping warehouse, and I'm in Wrestlemania XXX this year, in front of millions of people worldwide, you know? I spent a few years cutting my teeth in the Midwest, I worked for Ring of Honor, then I went down to Florida and relearned everything there. It wasn't different, but the crowds are bigger now. The paychecks are nicer, but that's not really why I do it, so it doesn't make much of a difference for me." - Seth Rollins talks about being in Wrestlemania 30
March 7, 2014
Jeff Hardy
After taking a much needed break to heal up his body, Shannon Moore has now started training again, and he has stated that he would like to make a come back to professional wrestling.

Angelo Dawkins
The demotion of Brodus Clay seems to be getting worse and worse. Aside from being pulled from Monday Night Raw and Smackdown, he has been working in the developmental program as of late, training with Bill DeMott. Clay worked a match for WWE NXT and actually put over Angelo Dawkins. Generally, main roster guys are the ones getting the victories.
February 24, 2014
AJ Lee
There are talks that WWE could add a divas match at the last minute to the Elimination Chamber 2014 pay per view. AJ Lee would obviously be one of the contestants since she still holds the belt. Cameron is a possible challenger, as the company created some teaser graphics involving her recently. Natalya Neidhart has stated that she is training for the event, so she is a candidate as well.
February 23, 2014
Bill DeMott
While his dreams of working at Wrestlemania 30 might be in jeopardy, that has not stopped Brodus Clay from trying. He has been training with Bill DeMott, the head trainer for WWE, down in developmental as of late. No word yet on when he will return to Monday Night Raw or Smackdown.

While management still has not completely decided on the main event finish at Wrestlemania 30, there are rumors already floating around that Batista is being moved into a feud against Sheamus after this.

April 2, 2014
Sheamus
Since he only works a limited amount of dates per year for the company, WWE is very selective when it comes to choosing who Brock Lesnar works with.

April 2, 2014

March 25, 2014
Sheamus
"It was such a huge match, and I feel like at every Mania since then, I haven't had the opportunity to do that again. I'm hoping at Wrestlemania 30 or Wrestlemania 31 to bounce back to that level again. The wheel goes round and round and comes back and opportunities are given again. You just have to remember that. After four years of experience -- and especially after the match with Daniel Bryan at WrestleMania 27 for the U.S. title that ended up being a dark match -- you've got to realize that patience is a huge key in this game." - Sheamus talks about how the wrestling business works
March 24, 2014
Big Show
Since Wrestlemania is right around the corner, WWE has decided to tape a commercial in New Orleans to promote the pay per view.

Sheamus
During a recent interview at Wizard World Comic Con, Sheamus was asked who he would like to face at Wrestlemania, and he was quick to choose Daniel Bryan, noting that the two of them deserve to have a match that last longer than a minute. The former world heavyweight champion feels that he and Bryan can tear down the house if given time.
March 17, 2014
Sheamus
Amid boos from the Wizard World Comic Con attendees, Sheamus defended John Cena by informing everyone that he is a hard worker who gets along with people backstage. He also admitted that a few former WWE stars have trashed Cena. Sheamus stated that those performers should blame themselves for their failures instead of blaming Cena.
March 15, 2014
John Cena
A list was made internally within the company about which five wrestlers are going to be leading WWE after Wrestlemania 30. John Cena and Randy Orton were obvious choices. While some did not want him on there, Daniel Bryan made the list. Despite suffering a dip in popularity, Sheamus is on the list and will be pushed. Roman Reigns, the fan favorite is the fifth guy.
March 13, 2014
Sheamus
Since the two of them have worked matches on Monday Night Raw and Smackdown over the last couple of weeks, WWE was concerned about putting Sheamus and Christian into a match at Wrestlemania 30, so there are now people backstage who are pushing for them to be added to the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal instead.
March 12, 2014
Sheamus
While making an appearance at the Wizard World Comic Con show in Sacramento over the weekend, Sheamus was asked by fans about the backstage heat situation involving CM Punk.

March 9, 2014
Sheamus
Despite the fans growing restless during his match against Christian on Monday Night Raw this week, Sheamus is still being pushed by WWE for a spot at Wrestlemania 30. Management noticed the boos that the former world heavyweight champion received when he started his backstage interview, but they feel that he can work past that.
March 7, 2014
Christian
As a sign of how WWE views their feud, Christian and Sheamus were removed from the Hulu version of Monday Night Raw this week. The belief is that management wanted to give the two veteran performers a spot at Wrestlemania 30, so they were paired together in a program. Fans in Chicago totally turned on the two during their match.
March 4, 2014
Sheamus
Now that she is the brand ambassador for the company, Stephanie McMahon has been busy trying to get WWE performers attached to as many nationally known companies as possible. One of the first deals that she secured was with Totino's, which produces pizzas and pizza rolls. Former world champion Sheamus is now a spokesperson for the product.
March 3, 2014
Sheamus
While it has not been officially confirmed yet, it appears that WWE is leaning towards doing a match between Christian and Sheamus at Wrestlemania 30. Management definitely wanted Sheamus on the card, as they still view him as a high priority within the company. There was a strong push to give Christian a spot on the card, as this might be his last one.
