Alicia Fox
Those that watched Summerslam 2014 saw Nikki Bella doing her much rumored heel turn. She is expected to work in that role on television going forward. However, WWE did something peculiar at a live event in Sacramento over the weekend. Nikki worked as a baby face. She teamed up with Emma to defeat Alicia Fox and Layla El. The face team even attacked Rosa Mendes, who was portraying a heel character. No word yet on why WWE opted to do this.

Adam Rose
There's been rumors floating around for quite some time now that WWE has lost interest in pushing Adam Rose because several key members of management, including Vince McMahon himself, are reportedly not fans of the character. It has now been noted that Rose has not had a match on Monday Night Raw in about a month, which leads many to believe that the rumors are indeed true.
August 24, 2014
Alexander Rusev
Rumors are floating around right now that WWE officials were not too pleased with the performance that Alexander Rusev put on at Summerslam 2014 in his flag match against Jack Swagger. His selling of an ankle injury was sub par, and the manner in which he sold it was not very fitting of his character. WWE really wants him in the main event scene, so they're paying much more attention to his matches than usual.
August 21, 2014
Dean Ambrose
Expect to hear plenty of comparisons between Dean Ambrose and Steve Austin over the next couple of months. WWE is having the former Shield member take elements of the Austin character in an attempt to win over even more fans. While it was not shown on Monday Night Raw, the company is doing a story where Ambrose refused medical attention after being severely injured by Kane and Seth Rollins.
August 21, 2014
Bully Ray
Since her character has a broken back, Dixie Carter is selling that fact by staying away from Impact Wrestling. However, TNA fans will get to see her at least once more. Mikey Tenay and Carter will be doing an interview from her home soon. The move is designed to further the story line and generate more of a reaction for Bully Ray and the other faces.
August 15, 2014
Bray Wyatt
During a recent interview, Triple H revealed some interesting things about Bray Wyatt. He stated that WWE was on the verge of giving him a release a while back. HHH said he was able to convince management to let him work on a new character and test it out on WWE NXT. Things worked out rather well, and Wyatt was eventually promoted to the main roster.
August 7, 2014
Kane
After 17 years of portraying the character, Kane might be receiving a new gimmick soon. Rumors have been floating around that he might be bringing the Jacob Goodnight character from the See No Evil movie series to WWE television. The belief is that management wanted to make it easier to promote the film. Some feel that the story line started when Kane handed over his mask to Stephanie McMahon on the last episode of Monday Night Raw.
August 7, 2014
Dolph Ziggler
WWE has announced that Dolph Ziggler will be challenging the Miz at Summerslam 2014 for the Intercontinental Championship. While his popularity remains pretty strong, this is not a push for Ziggler. Management simply needed a mid card baby face to put over Miz. A title change is not expected to take place, as the company wants to see how far this Hollywood character can go.
August 5, 2014
Dean Ambrose
While he might not be as hyped as Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose is actually moving up quite a bit in the eyes of management. In addition to doing a good job at portraying his character and working solid matches in the ring, Ambrose has caught the attention of management by becoming a media darling. His ability to make WWE look good to the public has put him in the good graces of high ranking officials.
August 5, 2014
Alberto Del Rio
When Ricardo Rodriguez grew impatient with the company and asked for a release from his contract, WWE lost a guy who routinely did backstage interviews for the Spanish broadcast. Since the company has a tight budget nowadays, they decided to use Alberto Del Rio as a replacement instead of hiring someone new. Del Rio did mention Rodriguez in his first interview, but it was done in character.
August 4, 2014
Alexander Rusev
While the company would probably never admit it, there are those that believe that WWE is simply setting up Alexander Rusev for a potential feud with Kurt Angle. The Olympic gold medalist has openly talked about leaving TNA and returning to WWE for quite some time now. His patriotic gimmick would be a perfect foil for the evil pro Russian character.
August 3, 2014
Bray Wyatt
Rumors are floating around that WWE is going to be bringing in another member of the Wyatt Family to help Bray Wyatt regain some of the momentum that he has lost over the last couple of weeks. Word has it that the story line will consists of Erick Rowan and Luke Harper both being banned from ringside at Summerslam 2014. The new character would make their debut that night.
August 3, 2014
Alexander Rusev
Even though the move was done at the last minute, the baby face turn for Jack Swagger has turned out a lot better than WWE had expected. Officials backstage are impressed with the audience reaction to the now patriotic character. A lot of that has to do with the heat that Lana and Alexander Rusev have generated. However, management will more than likely give a push to Swagger to see if the momentum can carry on.
August 1, 2014
Sheamus
There are some interesting rumors floating around right now that Sheamus could be cast to portray Darth Vader in the upcoming Star Wars movie. A publication in Ireland is even running with the story. It has been noted that Sheamus has portrayed the character before during promotional tours, which more than likely took place before he became a WWE star. Sheamus himself has mentioned the rumor on his Twitter account and even teased that it might be true.
July 30, 2014
Cameron
It looks like WWE will be utilizing the relationship between Cameron and her boyfriend a bit more during the next season of Total Divas. The belief is that something drastic will happen, where the couple will either break up or do a wedding. The heel turn and split from Naomi Knight was designed to put more attention into her character on the reality television show next season.
July 28, 2014
Jerry Lawler
While he receives a bad rap from a lot of fans due to WWE giving him a heavyweight championship run a couple of years back, Miz is actually very much a student of the game. He has remained motivated despite not being given a push in a while. Miz has also been studying legendary actor Andy Kaufman, who will forever have a place in wrestling history thanks to his memorable story line with Jerry Lawler during the 1980s, so that he can improve his gimmick and character.
July 19, 2014
CM Punk
While doing a podcast interview with Jim Ross, Kurt Angle discussed the topic of CM Punk and his departure from WWE earlier in the year. Angle stated that he was not aware of how injured Punk was until recently. Upon finding that out, Angle stated that he respected Punk's decision to leave, in order to preserve his health. Angle did also mention that Punk had issues with WWE over the booking and the direction of his character.
July 19, 2014
Bray Wyatt
It looks like the previous media ban has been completely lifted for Bray Wyatt. WWE is now having him do interviews across the country to promote their events. In the past, the company has forced him to avoid speaking publicly, in order to keep an air of mystery around his character. Management wanted to mold him to be similar to the Undertaker character at one point in time.

Kaitlyn
"I don't think I will ever wrestle again, but if I do, it would be for WWE. I just feel like that's my place. It's where I developed my wrestling abilities and character and that's where I would stay if I was to wrestle again. The good thing about when I left is that I left on very good terms with the WWE. It left the door open for me if I ever wanted to come back. It's not completely out of the question to ever return, whether it's for a short-term or longer. Maybe there will be a point down the line that I miss wrestling bad enough that I'll want to come back. As for now though, I'm just focusing on my company and my marriage and haven't gotten that itch to wrestle." - Kaitlyn discusses her future in professional wrestling

In addition to being utilized as an on screen character within the Adam Rose party posse, Rosita is also said to be one of the top candidates to compete in the upcoming season of Tough Enough, which has been delayed due to budgeting issues.
July 16, 2014
Tara
Rumors are floating around right now about Tara, formerly known as Victoria, making her return to WWE in the near future.

February 9, 2014
Tara

"I am ecstatic to hear the news about the WWE Network for many reasons. People don't come to The Squared Circle because they can't get WWE programming in their home. They come to The Squared Circle to share the experience with fellow wrestling fans. It's the reason a University of Michigan fan, for example, goes to a U of M bar to watch a U of M football game."
