Sin Cara
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.

May 7, 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
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
Even though the name is associated with his failed stint in WWE, Sin Cara continues to use the name down in Mexico and Puerto Rico. Word going around is that he is using the name because he cannot go back to being Mistico, which is owned by CMLL. The masked performer has also not been able to come up with a new name and gimmick for himself.
February 21, 2014
Sin Cara
It appears that WWE really wants Prince Devitt to sign a contract with them. The company has done something rare in that they are offering him a deal that does not require him to spend a lot of time in developmental. A similar deal was given to Sin Cara, as the masked performer felt that being in developmental was beneath someone of his stature.
February 14, 2014
Sin Cara
Hunico might be cashing in a nice pay per view bonus check at Wrestlemania 30 this year, as WWE still has interest in using the Sin Cara character at the event. Merchandise sales have remained strong, and the company wants to continue to capitalize. There may be a lawsuit coming from the original performer, though.
February 12, 2014
Sin Cara
With Sin Cara gone, Rey Mysterio old and injury prone and Alberto Del Rio constantly threatening to leave the company, WWE is said to be looking for new Mexican stars, as management very much wants to be a draw in Mexico, where a new office was recently set up.
February 6, 2014
Sin Cara

While he has not been given a feud to work with since making his return to WWE, Rey Mysterio is very much still a part of the plans for Wrestlemania 30. He was penciled in for a big match against Sin Cara, but management is now looking for a new opponent for him at the pay per view.

February 5, 2014
Sin Cara

Aside from half hearted programs with Sin Cara and Rey Mysterio, Alberto Del Rio really has not been given a full program by WWE to work with since wrestling John Cena at Survivor Series 2013. However, the feeling backstage is that Del Rio is assured a spot at Wrestlemania 30 to draw in the Spanish media.

February 3, 2014

January 29, 2014

January 28, 2014
Sin Cara

While the initial plans had him working a match against Sin Cara, WWE may have changed their mind on how to use Rey Mysterio at Wrestlemania 30. There are those within the company that are now leaning towards him working a match against Alberto Del Rio with his mask on the line.

January 18, 2014
Sin Cara

While the masked superstar is still interested in a return, WWE has expressed very little interest in bringing Sin Cara back now that his contract has expired. The belief is that the company can save a good amount of money by using Hunico instead.

January 13, 2014
Sin Cara

One of the reasons why WWE wants to do a match at Wrestlemania 30 between Rey Mysterio and Sin Cara is that they hope it would generate some interest from the media in Mexico. Management also wants to elevate the Sin Cara character.

November 30, 2013
Rey Mysterio
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.
May 24, 2014

May 8, 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
Rey Mysterio
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
Zack Ryder
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
Vince McMahon
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
Dolph Ziggler

March 25, 2014
Rey Mysterio
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
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
Camacho
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.
March 2, 2014
Sin Cara
Fans at a AAA show in Mexico this week were a bit surprised when Sin Cara showed up as a different character, and it has now been revealed by the masked performer himself that it was due to legal threats from WWE. AAA wanted nothing to do with that, so they asked him to change things up for the night. Sin Cara stated that his lawyers will be fighting back.
February 25, 2014
Randy Orton
While there are still fans clamoring for him to move down the card, John Cena should remain high in the eyes of WWE officials, as his merchandise is still the top movers. Randy Orton and CM Punk round out the top three, with Daniel Bryan coming in at fourth. Sin Cara still remains a top seller.
February 6, 2014
Sin Cara

Since he is claiming that he owns the copyright to the name, Luis Alvirde is still utilizing the Sin Cara name. The masked performer used the moniker while working shows in Mexico and Puerto Rico recently. The belief is that WWE be pursuing legal actions against him.

February 3, 2014
Sin Cara

In another sign that the business relationship between Sin Cara and WWE is over, the masked performer has been signed by World Wrestling League, a promotion in Puerto Rico. He's still interested in returning to USA and working with WWE again, but the feeling is not mutual.

January 31, 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
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.
August 26, 2014
Dixie Carter
Reports have surfaced that the network currently interested in bringing TNA on board is Velocity. The channel is available in approximately 52 million households right now. Velocity is aimed at males between the ages of 25 and 54, which is beneficial to Dixie Carter and company because that is similar to the audience that Spike targets. No word yet on how far along the negotiations are at the moment.
August 25, 2014
Zack Ryder
There might be some backstage heat towards Zack Ryder. After working the live events this week for the company, he noted that he was flying back to New York. He also stated that he was not sick, which has led many fans to believe that this involves some sort of disciplinarian issues. WWE usually flies in performers for Monday Night Raw and Smackdown, even if they're not being utilized on television.
August 25, 2014
Dolph Ziggler
Rumors are floating around right now that Miz may have suffered a concussion. The Intercontinental Champion took a very stiff kick to the face from Dolph Ziggler in a match in Fresno. Afterwards, he appeared to be quite dazed and requested the assistance of a trainer to help get backstage. WWE has yet to issue an official statement, so we will have to wait until Monday Night Raw for further clues.
August 25, 2014
Velvet Sky
There are rumors floating around right now that Velvet Sky is going to be leaving TNA soon. However, the speculations stem from an overreaction to something that might really be insignificant. The Knockout changed her profile biography on Twitter. She removed TNA from there and replaced it with other words, as there is a word limit set on the biography. As of right now, her departure from the company is far from confirmed.
August 25, 2014
Bully Ray
Reports have surfaced that the contract between Bully Ray and TNA has now officially expired. The two sides had been trying to negotiate a new deal, but financial terms could not be met. The former world heavyweight champion is still listed on the official roster page on the TNA website. The belief is that the company might wait until a new television deal has been signed before renegotiating with some of the bigger stars.
August 25, 2014
Rey Mysterio
While it appears that he is still under contract to WWE, it does not seem like the company is going to be bringing Rey Mysterio back to television, even after his hand injury heals. The two sides are greatly at odds right now, and it seems like management is more concerned about preventing him from going to another company at this point. A reconciliation seems unlikely right now.
August 24, 2014
Yoshi Tatsu
When Yoshi Tatsu was given a release by WWE, he was devastated by it because he had been working so hard in developmental to get back to the main roster. However, he is not one to give up on a wrestling career. Reports have surfaced that he will be heading back overseas to sign a contract with New Japan after he finishes up his commitment on the independent circuit.
August 24, 2014
Dixie Carter
Some interesting rumors have popped up about TNA and their attempt to get a new television contract for Impact Wrestling. It appears that Dixie Carter is not panicking because the company has another network lined up. It is being said that it is not a major one, but it should enable TNA to remain available nationally, which is something that the company desperately needs.
August 24, 2014
Big E Langston
There might be some good news for those of you that were excited about the new stable of Xavier Woods, Kofi Kingston and Big E Langston. Management had apparently decided to split up the group because they were taken off of television, but at a recent live event, the stable was utilized once again. WWE could be testing out the audience to see if the trio can be worth saving.
August 23, 2014
Rosa Mendes
There are speculations right now that Rosa Mendes could be on the receiving end of a push from WWE. She recently stated in an interview that she has never won a singles match via pin fall on television before. The belief is that she is planting the seeds for an underdog story line. Rosa chasing the championship could be a focal point on Total Divas.
August 23, 2014
Bully Ray
A lot of eyes are on the contract negotiations between Bully Ray and TNA at the moment. Many are curious to see if the company will actually let another top level performer walk away. Reports have surfaced that one of the things holding up the deal is the fact that management wants to wait until a new television deal can be reached. TNA is willing to sign the lower level performers right now since the deals are not as expensive.
August 22, 2014
Alexander Rusev
There are rumors floating around right now that Zeb Colter is going to be dropped from television and removed as the manager of Jack Swagger. Many are assuming that since WWE kept him off of Monday Night Raw and Smackdown. Colter is said to be making a return soon and is only selling the kick from Alexander Rusev. Management still views him as an asset.
August 22, 2014
Randy Orton
There is a little bit of a dilemma backstage in WWE right now when it comes to the Roman Reigns push. Management does not want to put the title on him just yet because they feel that it would be more effective to let him do it at Wrestlemania 31. However, he has gone pretty high up the card already, as Randy Orton is near the top of the ladder. Management will have to figure out what to do with him over the next several months.
August 22, 2014
Bray Wyatt
When Bray Wyatt was closing out his feud with John Cena, many wondered who WWE was going to pair him up with next. Fortunately for the company, Chris Jericho agreed to return and help keep Wyatt interesting. Their feud is about to end, so the question has popped up again. As of right now, it looks like WWE is leaning towards putting Wyatt together with Sheamus in a program.
August 22, 2014
Dolph Ziggler
There are those that believe that WWE will be having Ric Flair managing Dolph Ziggler after all. Their interaction on Monday Night Raw might have been the seeds planted by the creative department. Apparently, Ziggler is not in the dog house with management any more. There's even talks that he might be elevated up the card into a feud with Randy Orton soon.
August 21, 2014
Mr Anderson
There are talks that Mr Anderson could be one of the next wrestlers to leave TNA. He signed a new contract last October, and it was reportedly for just a year. Since the company has been trying to be very cautious with their budget, Anderson could become a casualty. Reports surfaced in May that the former world heavyweight champion was one of the remaining performers with a big salary.
August 21, 2014
Kurt Angle
There are rumors floating around right now that Kurt Angle has called Triple H about a possible return to WWE. Reports has surfaced that HHH is not interested in a reunion with the former world heavyweight champion. There is said to be some lingering backstage heat from HHH towards Angle, whose contract with TNA expires in exactly a month from today.
August 21, 2014
AJ Styles
While the negotiation continues between the two sides, the belief is that Bully Ray and TNA are far apart on the financial terms. Management wants to keep their former world heavyweight champion around because he is quite the asset to the roster. However, they are limited in what they can pay him, much like how they had to let AJ Styles leave. Since neither side is willing to budge, it looks like the relationship could be over soon.
August 21, 2014
