Steve Austin
Considering how incredible the show was, WWE should not have any issues with coming up with Wrestlemania 30 highlights to show on Monday Night Raw this week.

Steve Austin
In an almost surreal scene, Wrestlemania 30 started off with Hulk Hogan, Steve Austin and the Rock standing together in the middle of a WWE ring. The three of them were each given time to address the audience before throwing out their respective catchphrases. Then, the Hogan, Austin and Rock all drank beers to the delight of the Wrestlemania crowd.

Steve Austin
For a while there, people expected Jim Ross to not be on hand for the WWE Hall of Fame induction ceremony because the commentator himself stated that he had prior engagements.

CM Punk
"I could get more out of that guy than anybody else walking Planet Earth. He could have that ultimate 'Come to Jesus' meeting with me. Punk's been around for a long time and he's a smart guy, but he never stepped into a damn squared circle with the intensity of a guy like Stone Cold Steve Austin." - Steve Austin discusses potential match with CM Punk at Wrestlemania 31
April 5, 2014
Diamond Dallas Page
The hot rumor heading into this weekend is that CM Punk will be at Wrestlemania 30. First, Steve Austin made the prediction that the former world heavyweight champion will be at the pay per view. Now, Diamond Dallas Page is doing the same in an interview with Wrestle Talk TV. Both Austin and DDP have connections backstage, so there might be some merit to their predictions on Punk.
April 4, 2014
Steve Austin
"I remember seeing Brock Lesnar the first time he walked into the doors of WWE. All the boys were gathered around eating dinner and Brock Lesnar walks in. He might as well could have had a bolt on each side of his neck, because he looked like just a monstrous Frankenstein of a human being. You don't see guys like Brock Lesnar walk around every single day of your life." - Steve Austin talks about meeting Brock Lesnar backstage for the first time
April 2, 2014
CM Punk
"I'm telling you, I'm going to stick to my prediction that CM Punk is going to make his return at WrestleMania 30 in New Orleans. I made this prediction two months ago here on the show. It's been a long time, I think he's cooled his jets, he's got some rest, and I think it's time to get back to work. I don't see him participating in a match but it would be great to see him in a run-in to establish himself, to entrench himself immediately in a memorable and just a great moment, and I would say plant himself firmly in the middle of an angle, because he would be the angle, by attacking whoever he sees fit to attack or asserting his presence rather, whatever the case may be. But I see CM Punk coming back at WrestleMania 30. Who knows if it will happen. We will know in about six short days when WrestleMania actually happens." - Steve Austin predicting that CM Punk will return this weekend
April 2, 2014
Hulk Hogan
During an interview session with fans in Manchester, Bret Hart revealed that he has still has some backstage heat with Hulk Hogan.

March 25, 2014
Sting
During a recent interview, Buff Bagwell was asked about John Cena, and he stated that he could have been just as big as Cena had WWE given him the exact same push. He also noted that Cena was not as good as guys like Sting, Goldberg, Steve Austin and the Rock. Bagwell feels that Cena is simply at the right place at the right time.
March 10, 2014
Steve Austin
During his podcast interview with Jim Ross, the topic of John Cena doing a heel turn was brought up with Steve Austin. The former WWE star was adamant that the move should not happen.

February 24, 2014
Jim Ross
During their podcast interview session, both Jim Ross and Steve Austin stated that WWE will eventually put the heavyweight championship on Daniel Bryan, as Vince McMahon is too smart not to see his popularity.

Vince McMahon

February 19, 2014
Antonio Cesaro
Since the title belt is being given more of a story line than it has been in a while, a lot of fans have been speculating as to who will win the tournament to determine a new challenger for Big E Langston and the WWE Intercontinental Championship. Right now, management is leaning towards Antonio Cesaro, who is in the midst of a big push.
April 16, 2014
Alberto Del Rio
Prior to Wrestlemania 30, there were plans in place to push Alberto Del Rio towards Big E Langston and the WWE Intercontinental Championship, so when the tournament was announced, many viewed Del Rio as a top candidate to win. However, management has changed their minds on that push, as evident by the fact that Del Rio lost to Rob Van Dam on Monday Night Raw this week.
April 16, 2014
Batista
After beating Triple H, Randy Orton and Batista at Wrestlemania 30 for the heavyweight championship, a lot of fans wondered who WWE will choose to work with Bryan in his first month as champion. As of right now, it looks like management is leaning heavily towards Kane to be his first major opponent. The two are expected to work Extreme Rules 2014 together.
April 15, 2014
Antonio Cesaro
With Antonio Cesaro branching off and aligning with Paul Heyman, rumors have it that WWE is looking for a replacement tag team partner for Jack Swagger. Zeb Colter even played up the story line through Twitter. There is a very good chance that the company repackages one of the current veterans on the roster who do not have a story line to work with.
April 15, 2014
Ashley Flair
One of the ideas being discussed right now is to have Ric Flair managing Ashley Flair in WWE NXT. With Paige being elevated to the main roster, management can now put more of the spotlight on Ashley, Sasha Banks and Bayley. Having the Nature Boy involved would help to increase interest from the audience, as he is still a beloved performer.
April 15, 2014
Bruiser Brody
Older wrestling fans took quite an interest in WWE inducting Carlos Colon into the hall of fame this year. Many were expecting to see some backstage heat incident taking place because there are still many people in the industry who blame Colon for his involvement in the murder of Bruiser Brody. Cooler heads prevailed, and the situation went pretty smoothly for WWE.
April 15, 2014
Dolph Ziggler
While there were talks about building a stable around Dolph Ziggler and Miz, two performers who have not been pushed as much as they used to be lately, those discussions have grown a bit dormant as of late. WWE has been focused on bringing up the developmental wrestlers from WWE NXT, and they have been occupied with the tribute show for Ultimate Warrior.
April 15, 2014
Sting
While an agreement has been reached between the two sides, it appears that Sting still has yet to sign the contract, wanting to make sure that he and his people go through the details of the arrangement with WWE very finely before making a commitment. One of the main issues is the amount of dates that Sting will have to work as an in ring performer. He will not be wrestling much for WWE.
April 15, 2014
Triple H
There has been a bit of a shift in philosophy backstage with Triple H taking over more of the power from Vince McMahon, as the former world heavyweight champion is more inclined to respond to internet wrestling fans by taking jabs through the story lines. For years, McMahon has long avoided any connection with fans online, but HHH likes sending messages to people who complain.
April 14, 2014
Xavier Woods
While they occasionally worked together over the past year, rumors have it that WWE is trying to downplay the on screen relationship between Xavier Woods and the Funkadactyls. Management feels that the girls are over with the audience thanks to their role on Total Divas. They're going to be utilized more as in ring performers than just a dancing side show routine.
April 14, 2014
Bruno Sammartino
Rumors have it that Triple H is the main driving force behind Bruno Sammartino staying involved with WWE. The company already has received his biggest marketing contributions when he was inducted into the hall of fame, but since HHH is a big fan of Sammartino, the two sides are maintaining a working relationship. Sammartino was at Wrestlemania 30 weekend, even though he was not featured on screen.
April 14, 2014
Christopher Daniels
While rumors have persisted for months now that he was going to be leaving the company once his contract expires, there are talks that Christopher Daniels could be sticking around with TNA. Some are under the belief that a new contract has been reached, as he is going to be challenging for the X Division Championship against Seiya Sanada in Japan later on this week.
April 14, 2014
Antonio Cesaro
Even though Conor OBrian and Rick Victor received a lousy reaction from WWE fans at a live event last month in New York City, management still believes in them. Rumors have it that the Ascension could be brought up to the main roster in the coming weeks. The two of them could be utilized as replacements for Jack Swagger and Antonio Cesaro in the tag team division.
April 14, 2014
Bobby Roode
If TNA decides to keep the belt on Eric Young for the long term, an idea which is being tossed around backstage because of his marketing value at the moment, then management is going to push Bobby Roode up as a challenger for the world heavyweight championship. There are still talks of Brutus Magnus recapturing the belt at TNA Sacrifice 2014.
April 14, 2014
Heath Slater
Since the company needs room for all the new stars that they are bringing up from the developmental program, WWE is expected to allow several of the veteran performers to leave the company soon. The belief is that Heath Slater will be allowed to walk once his contract expires. The 3MB member has expressed frustration backstage over not receiving a push.
April 14, 2014
Low Ki
Rumors are floating around right now that Low Ki could be making his return to TNA in the near future. The former X Division Champion contemplated retirement not too long ago, but he had a change of heart apparently. Low Ki has a close relationship with Samoa Joe and MVP, so that have played a part in his potential return to TNA.
April 13, 2014
Undertaker
When Vince McMahon decided to end the legendary winning streak at Wrestlemania 30, he knew it would be a tricky situation to pull off. WWE officials were said to be quite disappointed with how things turned out. They managed to shock the audience like they wanted to. However, they were hoping for a much better send off for Undertaker from the fans.
April 13, 2014
Antonio Cesaro
While all eyes are on Antonio Cesaro and the push that he is about to receive, there are actually rumors that Jack Swagger could be on the receiving end of a push as well. WWE has discussed the possibility of putting the Intercontinental Championship on him. Management tested out the audience over the weekend to gauge their reaction to Swagger beating Big E Langston for the title.
April 13, 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
Lanny Poffo
Rumors are heating up that WWE has secured a deal to induct Randy Savage into the hall of fame during Wrestlemania 31 weekend next year in Silicon Valley. The company flew in his brother, Lanny Poffo, to New Orleans, and the belief is that the move was done in order to secure the blessings of his remaining family members.
