Adam Rose
According to backstage rumors, Adam Rose is clinging on by a thread since key members of WWE management, including Vince McMahon and producer Kevin Dunn, are not big fans of his character. Things might have gotten worse since his match at Money in the Bank 2014 against Damien Sandow was basically ignored by the live audience. Rose could be demoted from television very soon.
July 5, 2014
Bray Wyatt
While he was widely viewed as one of the favorites to win the title at Money in the Bank 2014, Bray Wyatt was actually never in consideration as a champion by WWE. The company was dead set on putting the belt back around John Cena, as they felt that they needed their top star to be the face of the company while they're trying to win back the trust of the investors. Putting the belt on Wyatt might not evoke the same level of trust from people who might not necessarily follow the product as much as fans.
July 3, 2014
Daniel Bryan
While there is still a chance that he was working the audience during his speech at Money in the Bank 2014, the topic of Daniel Bryan require a second surgery to repair his neck is a major issue for WWE. Reports are surfacing that if it is true that he needs to go under the knife again, there is a very good chance that Bryan could miss up to a year of action.
June 30, 2014
Randy Orton
There was a bit of concern backstage for Randy Orton during the main event of Money in the Bank 2014. Early on in the match, he was struck by a ladder, which caused him to bleed pretty badly. Medical personnel and Triple H immediately tended to him to stop the wound. While there were some fears of a concussion, Orton opted to finish the match. Afterwards, he was given nearly a dozen staples to close the wound. Orton reportedly is undergoing some tests today to check for concussions.
June 30, 2014
Miz
For quite a few weeks now, there have been rumors of Miz making his television return to Monday Night Raw. Some speculations have Ric Flair joining him on that return. With Money in the Bank 2014 in the books now, those rumors are heating up again. Some believe that tonight will be the night when they finally come back and start the push for Miz.
June 30, 2014
Vince McMahon
Since it has failed to reach expectations, the WWE Network has been a bit of a black eye for Vince McMahon and company. Things might be getting worse really soon, as quite a few subscribers attempted to cancel their service because of technical issues during the streaming of Money in the Bank 2014. WWE was already concerned about how to entice new people to sign up, so that they can finally break that million subscribers mark.
June 30, 2014
Alberto Del Rio
A lot of action took place in the main event of Money in the Bank 2014. Fans went crazy as they saw creative signature spots from Randy Orton, Sheamus, John Cena, Roman Reigns, Alberto Del Rio, Kane and Bray Wyatt. However, it was Cena, much to the dismay of online WWE fans, who climbed the ladder and captured the heavyweight championship.
June 29, 2014
CM Punk
To calm down the Money in the Bank 2014 audience, WWE opted to go with another divas match as a filler. Layla El and Summer Rae battled in a match, where Fandango served as the special guest referee. Fans were so disinterested in the segment that a CM Punk chant broke out. In the end, Layla caught Summer with a kick to gain the pinfall. Layla and Fandango kissed after the match, while a despondent Summer looked on.
June 29, 2014
Alexander Rusev
In a rematch at Money in the Bank 2014, Alexander Rusev was successfully able to conquer Big E Langston again with his submission move. It was the typical match that you would expect from the two. There was a botched spot where Langston speared Rusev to the outside of the ring. However, the two of them more than made up for that by doing a great closing sequence.
June 29, 2014
Dean Ambrose
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
Adam Rose
Since WWE needed a filler segment at Money in the Bank 2014 and wanted to showcase Adam Rose a little bit, he was given a quick match against Damien Sandow, who was dressed as Paul Revere. Match was not really all that noteworthy, and Rose got the win after hitting the Party Foul finishing move. This was a segment that belongs more on Monday Night Raw than a pay per view.
June 29, 2014
Cameron
Naomi Knight was given a crack at the WWE Divas Championship at Money in the Bank 2014, but it was Paige that walked away as the reigning titleholder after a DDT and a pin. The match was designed to further the eventual split between Naomi and Cameron, who was at ringside and taking glee whenever her tag team partner was in peril against Paige.
June 29, 2014
Erick Rowan
Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso had their biggest challenge to date when Erick Rowan and Luke Harper challenged them for the WWE tag team championship at Money in the Bank 2014. The twin brothers delivered by retaining the belt. The Usos performed a double superplex on Rowan before finishing him off with consecutive flying splashes from the top rope.
June 29, 2014
Dean Ambrose
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
Batista
There is a feeling within the WWE locker room that management does not want Daniel Bryan back in the main event scene when he makes his return. Some are pointing out how he is being brought back in a minimum role at Money in the Bank 2014 as a sign of WWE downplaying his importance. Guys like Batista and Brock Lesnar would not be utilized in such a manner when they come back from their hiatus.
June 29, 2014
Randy Orton
As of right now, WWE has a big match between Roman Reigns and Randy Orton penciled in for WWE Battleground 2014. The company could set up the feud during the title match at Money in the Bank 2014. There are some rumors floating around that Orton and Reigns could be battling for the title at Battleground, even though it's a bit early for the big push to begin.
June 28, 2014
Cameron
Rumors are floating around right now that Cameron will be doing a heel turn at Money in the Bank 2014. She will more than likely cost Naomi Knight her chance at the WWE Divas Championship. There is also speculations that the incident will then lead to a triple threat match at WWE Battleground 2014, which would also feature Paige as the champion still.
June 27, 2014
Wade Barrett
Over the last couple of months, Wade Barrett has been gaining momentum in WWE after receiving a little push. A lot of fans want to see him winning the gold at Money in the Bank 2014. However, the chances of that happening have decreased tremendously, as the Intercontinental Champion has suffered some sort of shoulder injury. Medical tests are still being ran, but rumors are strongly suggesting that WWE will pull him from the pay per view.
June 25, 2014
Brock Lesnar
The rumors of John Cena winning the WWE title at Money in the Bank 2014 just got hotter now that the company has accidentally revealed a poster for Summerslam 2014, which features what looks like a main event match between Cena and Brock Lesnar. There has been speculations over the last couple of months that when the former UFC champion makes his return to WWE, he would be thrown into a title program.
June 25, 2014
Daniel Bryan
In a rather interesting bit of news, reports are surfacing that the audience at Monday Night Raw did not react much when WWE announced that Daniel Bryan would be making an appearance at Money in the Bank 2014. That comes as a surprise because he was really one of the most popular guys in the industry before he left to have surgery on his injured neck. It should be interesting to see how fans react to him at the pay per view itself.
June 24, 2014
Sin Cara
With Rey Mysterio possibly done with the company and Sin Cara being phased out, WWE has turned to Antonio Cesaro to do promotional work in Mexico this week. Management views him as one of the top performers when it comes to international appeal, as Cesaro has been used in this role before in other countries. Rosa Mendes was also sent along as well since she is Hispanic.
July 16, 2014
Sheamus
During a recent interview, Konnan revealed some dirt on the real life backstage fight between Sheamus and Hunico. Konnan stated that Sheamus had started the incident by being disrespectful towards the masked performer backstage. He also stated that Sheamus threw the first punch, but ended up losing to the current Sin Cara. Some are speculating that Konnan is just being biased towards Hunico, and the facts are a bit skewed.
June 24, 2014
Sin Cara
If you're still a fan of Sin Cara and want to keep up with the former WWE star, he is now going by the new name of Myzteziz. However, the masked performer is only using that name in AAA. Rumors have it that the promotion wanted to avoid a legal battle with WWE, so they insisted that he come up with a new name that they can trademark. Sin Cara will continue using the name and gimmick outside of that promotion, though.
June 5, 2014
Sin Cara
After months of legal threats towards one another, it appears that the issue between Sin Cara and WWE might be coming to an end, as the masked performer has informed fans that he wants a new name. Both sides have claimed that they legally own the trademark. Sin Cara himself had been using the name and likeness down in Mexico for the past couple of months.

Sin Cara
"Must be getting punchy. Do't remember being beaten up by Sin Cara backstage. It's just how Mexicans and we Irishmen huge it out, fella." - Sheamus addresses the rumors of backstage heat and a real life fight with Sin Cara backstage
May 8, 2014
Sheamus
Rumors are spreading quickly through the industry that Sheamus and Hunico were involved in a real life backstage fight during the Smackdown taping on Tuesday night. Reports are stating that Hunico, who has been working under a mask as Sin Cara, was the one that got the upper hand in the scuffle. No word yet on what started the situation.
May 7, 2014
Sin Cara
While his stint in the United States can be considered a failure due to the high expectations that WWE and their fans had, Sin Cara is still considered quite a draw in Mexico. Now that he is associated with AAA again, the masked star is being featured heavily in promotional campaigns. The company is even using the Sin Cara name, even though WWE owns the trademark.
May 1, 2014
Sin Cara
The original Sin Cara is signing a contract with AAA soon. The belief is that he is still waiting for his non compete clause with WWE to expire. The company did not deem him to be valuable enough to sign to a contract extension last year. It will be interesting to see what name he utilizes in AAA, as WWE owns Sin Cara and CMLL owns Mistico.
April 26, 2014
Sin Cara
While internet wrestling fans make a big deal out of it, the Sin Cara botch issues aren't really all that much of a concern to WWE. Management knows that when you work that style of wrestling, you're going to make mistakes. The backstage attitude and sense of entitlement was more of an issue than Sin Cara having botches in his matches.
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
Sin Cara
During an interview with Medio Tiempo in Mexico, Rey Mysterio was asked about Sin Cara, and the popular WWE star was a bit critical of his former tag team partner. Mysterio felt that Sin Cara could have been the one to take over for him, but he allowed his ego to ruin things in WWE. Mysterio also noted that Sin Cara should have worked harder on his English skills.
April 11, 2014
Alexander Rusev
A video from WWE Main Event of a match between Alexander Rusev, who made his in ring debut on Monday Night Raw this week against Zack Ryder, and Sin Cara. This segment was designed to give even further credibility to Rusev, who is expected to be booked in victories on television over the next couple of weeks.
April 11, 2014
Sin Cara
While there is a potential big legal battle in the works, Sin Cara revealed on Twitter that he will be using the Mistico name and character again in Mexico. There has been some dispute as to who owns the Sin Cara trademark. The performer believes that it belongs to him, while WWE is the one that holds all the paperwork.
March 26, 2014
Hunico
The odd saga between Sin Cara and WWE continued this week, as the masked performer was upset with Hunico portraying his character with Scooby Doo on Monday Night Raw. He even went as far as to send messages to Vince McMahon, Stephanie McMahon and Triple H via Twitter to vent his frustrations, but he wisely deleted the messages shortly afterwards.
March 25, 2014
Andre the Giant
WWE has announced that the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal will consists of Alberto Del Rio, Big E Langston, Big Show, Brodus Clay, Christian, Cody Rhodes, Damien Sandow, Darren Young, Dolph Ziggler, Drew McIntyre, Fandango, Goldust, Great Khali, Heath Slater, Jinder Mahal, Justin Gabriel, Kofi Kingston, Mark Henry, Miz, R Truth, Rey Mysterio, Santino Marella, Sheamus, Sin Cara, Titus ONeil and Zack Ryder. There are also four spots available for last minute entrants.
March 25, 2014
Andre the Giant
While he was initially penciled in for a huge match against Sin Cara at Wrestlemania 30, it now appears that Rey Mysterio will be working the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal instead. WWE has been downplaying his importance because he has not signed a new contract, but this match enables them to feature the popular performer on a pay per view.
March 19, 2014
Hunico
While there is a legal storm brewing between the two sides, there is now a chance that WWE might not be willing to fight with Sin Cara over the use of the name, as the value of the character has dropped tremendously over the last couple of weeks. When merchandise sales remained strong, management utilized Hunico in the role to help keep that going. The numbers have since dropped.
March 14, 2014
Sin Cara
Apparently, Sin Cara remains defiant towards WWE, as the masked performer is appearing on television shows for AAA. According to WWE, he is under a 90 day no compete clause, which prevents wrestlers from immediately working televised events after leaving the company. Management is said to be fine with him working non televised events for independent wrestling promotions, though.
March 9, 2014
Sin Cara
Despite being sent legal threats from the company, it appears that Sin Cara has opted to be defiant towards WWE. The masked wrestler recently won a championship down in Mexico while using the name and character, both of which he claims ownership to. New merchandise has been made despite the possibility of a lawsuit coming.
March 5, 2014
Sin Cara
While a lot of fans have already forgotten about him, a few still wonder about his whereabouts and status within WWE. It turns out that Camacho is still with the company, as he worked a WWE NXT television taping this week. He lost to Adrian Neville. His partner, Hunico, frequently works under the mask as the new Sin Cara, for those that are not aware.
