Summer Rae
Rumors are floating around that there is more to the story of Summer Rae and Layla El teaming up than what WWE tells us on television. Many are saying that the move was in response to Velvet Sky and Angelina Love being back together in TNA. Management wanted to reunite LayCool, but since Michelle McCool was not interested in making a full time return, they opted to go with Summer Rae, as the two of them share a physical resemblance.

Summer Rae
With AJ Lee finally making her return to WWE, the competition in the divas division just got a bit tougher. Someone is going to be losing television time. Naomi Knight and Cameron appear to be safe, as they have a heel turn story line in progress. Summer Rae and Layla El appear to have their weekly television spots secured for the time being. Paige is going to be working a program against AJ, so she should be fine. The belief is that Alicia Fox will be the one demoted, even though her character was gaining a little bit of momentum over the last couple of weeks.

Summer Rae
Last week, Miz made his long rumored return to Monday Night Raw. However, he came back to WWE alone. Ric Flair was not by his side as expected. The legendary performer is still expected to make his television return soon, but it looks like he might not be paired up with Miz after all. Flair had petitioned the company to work with Dolph Ziggler, but WWE went in a different direction by pairing him up with Summer Rae instead.

Summer Rae
Now that Summer Rae has completed the filming of Marine 4 with the Miz, she will be returning to Monday Night Raw and Smackdown very soon. Upon her return to television, expect her to be utilized as a baby face in a feud against Layla El and Fandango. WWE could pair her up with a male performer, such as Dolph Ziggler, to even the odds in the feud.

Summer Rae
The wait is almost over for the handful of Miz fans, as the former WWE champion is set to make his return this week. Filming for the Marine 4, which stars Miz and WWE diva Summer Rae, is close to completion. There won't be much time for Miz to catch his breath, as he will immediately jump on a plane and head to Europe with the other WWE stars.

Summer Rae
Since Summer Rae is going to be pushed as a singles star now, WWE opted to split her up from Fandango, who sold the story line through his Twitter account. As many saw on Smackdown this week, Summer Rae has been replaced with Layla El, who actually has experience as a dancer. WWE has been trying to find a role for Layla since her return.

Summer Rae

Tyson Kidd returned from an injury and worked a tag team match with Natalya Neidhart on Monday Night Raw against Fandango and Summer Rae.

November 4, 2013
Bully Ray
Now that their contracts with TNA have officially expired, there has been some contact between Team 3D and WWE. The two sides are discussing a potential return to the company. The move may come as a shock to certain fans because there was a widespread belief that Bully Ray and Devon were never going to be able to work in WWE ever again due to backstage heat. That apparently is not the case.
October 17, 2014
Brock Lesnar
While Brock Lesnar is not defending the WWE Heavyweight Championship for the time being, that does not mean that he is simply just sitting around the house. In addition to working out on a daily basis, the former UFC Heavyweight Champion has been doing a lot of hunting up in Canada recently. No word yet on when his official return to WWE is, but many are expecting it to be in time for Royal Rumble 2015.
October 16, 2014
Kurt Angle
Earlier in the week, it was reported that WWE had offered Kurt Angle a full time contract, which he turned down because he wanted a part time deal to preserve his body and health. There are speculations floating around that Triple H only made that offer because he knew that Angle would reject it. Some are still under the belief that HHH wants nothing to do with Angle and is attempting to block his return to the company.
October 15, 2014
AJ Styles
Back in June, Yoshi Tatsu was given his release from WWE, and many speculated that it would only be a matter of time before he headed back overseas. Earlier this week, he made his return to New Japan by attacking Jeff Jarrett and helped Hiroshi Tanahashi recapture the IWGP Heavyweight Championship from AJ Styles, whom Jarrett was trying to help illegally regain the belt.
October 15, 2014
Daniel Bryan
Fans of Daniel Bryan were given a degree of optimism not too long ago when reports surfaced that he would be healthy enough to make a return at Royal Rumble 2015. However, new reports are coming out that the former world heavyweight champion is still have issues regaining strength in his arms, so the timetable is said to be pushed back to Wrestlemania 31.
October 14, 2014
Kurt Angle
While reports have surfaced that Kurt Angle has indeed been in negotiation with WWE on his final contract in the business, the former world heavyweight champion has not ruled out a potential return to TNA because the company is more than willing to give him the part time deal that he prefers. Angle has publicly stated that this will be his final contract as a wrestler, and he wants to try to gain more ground in Hollywood.
October 14, 2014
Nick Dinsmore
Earlier this month, Nick Dinsmore was given a release by WWE after the company refused to sign him to a new contract as a trainer. During a recent interview, he hinted on a return as an in ring performer. Dinsmore did not specify which company he would be signing with, but he did state that it was one of the highest profile wrestling companies in the world.
October 13, 2014
Brad Maddox
An interesting return took place at a WWE live event in Macon, Georgia this week. Brad Maddox came out and worked a match. He had previously been pulled from television when management dropped his on screen character. Since he was given a match to work, the speculation is that the company will finally give him a chance to be a full time performer on the main roster.
October 12, 2014
Hulk Hogan
Fans celebrated in glee recently when it appeared that Steve Austin was going to be making a return to WWE. However, there should be some caution mixed in with that excitement. Austin has long stated that he would only do it if the deal was right. Management seems to be focused on Sting and Hulk Hogan at the moment, so negotiations with Austin have not made any progress.
October 11, 2014
John Laurinaitis
In the past, Vickie Guerrero was receptive towards a potential return to WWE some day, but her tone has definitely changed since starting a new career. Guerrero was recently contacted by the company to make an appearance on the special episode of Smackdown that aired this week. She rejected WWE and stated that it was time for her to move on with her life. John Laurinaitis and Theodore Long worked the segment instead.
October 11, 2014
Kurt Angle
Sources within WWE are now confirming that the company has indeed had talks with Kurt Angle about a potential return. Reports are stating that a full time contract was offered, but the former world heavyweight champion declined because he simply did not feel that he can handle being on the road that frequently. Angle is said to be seeking a part time deal, where he only works the big events. Negotiations are said to be ongoing.
October 11, 2014
Rock
WWE is very optimistic that they can sign the Rock to work a match at Wrestlemania 31. However, he remains noncommittal at the moment. When asked during interviews about a potential return to the wrestling ring, Rock usually brushes it off. He recently joked about not wanting to be punched in the mouth. The belief is that Hollywood executives are very much against Rock wrestling again.
October 11, 2014
Kurt Angle
Contrary to popular beliefs, WWE has not shut the door on a potential return by Kurt Angle. He is still viewed as a possible asset, and the company severely lacks top level talent right now. Angle has plenty of opponents on the roster that he can work with and elevate. The former world heavyweight champion is still expected to make an announcement about his future before the end of the year.
October 9, 2014
Hulk Hogan
When it was announced that the two sides had reached a contract agreement for a return, many were under the impression that we would be seeing plenty of Hulk Hogan on WWE television. However, management has opted against utilizing him too frequently. The belief is that financial restrictions are a big reason why the company has opted to use him only for special events.
October 9, 2014
Rob Van Dam
Since WWE is expanding the big battle royal to include 40 contestants instead of the typical 30, rumors have surfaced left and right about potential returns at Royal Rumble 2015. Rob Van Dam is among the list of candidates to appear in the match that night. There is a very good chance that he could do a one night only thing and wait until later in the year to make a longer return.
October 9, 2014
Michael Elgin
Last month, rumors and speculations began spreading about the backstage relationship between Michael Elgin and Ring of Honor. Apparently, things have taken a turn for the worst. Elgin has publicly stated that he is no longer with ROH. Apparently, he is upset with management for spreading lies about his situation, even though he is grateful that they helped him return to the United States.
October 7, 2014
Alexander Rusev
As most people, even those who do not watch on a weekly basis, already know, the Rock made a surprise return to Monday Night Raw this week. He verbally berated Lana and Alexander Rusev before engaging in a physical confrontation with the latter. Reports have surfaced that WWE officials instructed the Rock to only utilize punches, so that the Rusev character can be protected.
October 7, 2014
Steve Austin
With fans clamoring for his return for much of the past decade, Steve Austin has finally provided some concrete news on a potential comeback to WWE. The former world heavyweight champion casually mentioned that he was training for a potential comeback during an interview on his podcast show. Nothing is set in stone right now, and a lot will depend on how Austin's body holds up during the training.
October 5, 2014
Christian
The situation backstage with Christian is developing into an interesting one. While he has been medically cleared to return as an in ring performer, WWE feels that he is too fragile for that role, so management has not instructed the creative department to come up with a story for his comeback. The company wants to keep him around, but they have yet to figure out what capacity that is going to be in.
October 4, 2014
Rob Van Dam
While it is something that a lot of fans had assumed was going to happen anyways, Rob Van Dam recently revealed that he will return to WWE again some day. He stated that he has earned the right to dictate his own schedule and will go back whenever he is ready. RVD also stated that he will not work for another wrestling promotion until he returns to WWE.
September 28, 2014
Summer Rae
While a lot of fans are hoping to see WWE giving Dolph Ziggler a push again, the on screen relationship between he and Summer Rae is more about the diva than the former world heavyweight champion. Management needed someone to pair her up with, so that she can continue her feud against Fandango and Layla El. WWE still wants to give her a nice push heading into the next season of Total Divas.
July 6, 2014
Summer Rae
After their segment on Monday Night Raw this week, there is a lot of speculation going around about Dolph Ziggler and Summer Rae. There has been no confirmation that they are dating in real life. The belief is that this is a move by WWE to make both of them slightly more relevant and to have a foil for Fandango and Layla El. This on screen relationship between Ziggler and Summer could be a short term thing.
July 1, 2014
Layla El
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
Summer Rae
WWE is currently planning a big match between Summer Rae and Layla El, where Fandango would be the special guest referee. Rumors are floating around that the writers will do a story line where Fandango starts to question his decision to leave Summer Rae. If this gains enough steam, then WWE would even consider putting it on a pay per view.

Miz
In case you're wondering why Summer Rae has not been seen on Monday Night Raw and Smackdown recently, it's because she is currently off doing a sequel to the Marines movies, which also stars the Miz. News coming out of the set is that the WWE diva is actually doing some of her own stunts in the movie, which has impressed the production crew.
May 2, 2014
Summer Rae
"I think someone who has helped me the most in the locker room has been one of my closest friends, [WWE interviewer and host] Renee is just really cool. It's good to get a non-wrestling, non-diva perspective on matches. She is very funny, good comic relief. We're kind of buds. I love my Renee Young." - Summer Rae reveals who she is friends with backstage
April 26, 2014
Summer Rae
Even though her character was dumped by Fandango in the story line, do not expect a face turn for Summer Rae. The blonde diva will be working as a heel when she returns to WWE after filming her parts in the upcoming Marine sequel. Summer will also be utilized more as a wrestler this time around as opposed to being a side character.
April 17, 2014
Layla El
One of the big reasons why WWE put Layla El with Fandango is because Summer Rae is taking a couple of weeks off of television to film a sequel to the Marine with the Miz. WWE wanted to keep Fandango on television, but they did not feel that his act would be nearly as popular without a female companion. Thus, Layla was chosen to take over the role.

Fandango
Despite being a pretty popular act, WWE has decided to split up Summer Rae and Fandango, who has been selling the story line through social media over the past couple of days. Fandango is being paired with another person soon, as his act needs a female dancer. Summer Rae will be utilized as more of an in ring performer with the rest of the Total Divas cast.

Since it has generated so much of a buzz on social media and search engines, executives at E! and WWE are quite pleased with the segment on Total Divas where Summer Rae slapped Natalya Neidhart. While it is entirely scripted, the performers were actually able to get a good amount of people wondering if it was a legitimate situation or not.
April 1, 2014
Summer Rae
Having been able to capture the attention of a lot of people with just the first two episodes this season, Total Divas has now become a show that fans are looking forward to. The next episode will feature an interesting story line, where Summer Rae will flirt with Daniel Bryan, which causes some backstage heat between the blonde bombshell and Brie Bella.
March 27, 2014
Rosa Mendes
Initially, there was a push backstage in WWE to have AJ Lee defending the belt against Naomi Knight in a straight up match, but for the sake of Total Divas, management opted to just throw as many of the girls into the match as possible. Cameron, Brie Bella, Nikki Bella, Natalya Neidhart, Eva Marie, Summer Rae, Emma, Aksana, Alicia Fox, Rosa Mendes, Layla El and Tamina Snuka are now involved.
March 25, 2014
Natalya Neidhart
WWE issued a poll to their fans online to see which of the Total Divas cast members is the most talented. Natalya Neidhart is currently in first place, receiving almost half of the votes. In order, the rest of the votes went to Nikki Bella, Naomi Knight, Brie Bella, Summer Rae, Eva Marie and Cameron. Some are shocked that Eva Marie was not last on the list.
March 23, 2014

There are a lot of rumors floating around that Summer Rae is dating Fandango right now. Nothing has been confirmed, so it is merely speculations right now.

WWE may reveal her status on an upcoming episode of Total Divas.
March 22, 2014
