Batista
"I'm just one of those people who never really cared about being cheered or booed. If they cheered me, it motivated me. If they booed me, it motivated me more. Fans saying I don't deserve the Royal Rumble 2014 win, it's like they forgot the 10 or 12 years beforehand. I try to never be disrespectful. I left not because I wanted to leave, but because I needed to achieve some things on my own without WWE. To tell you the truth, I wished the crowd had been a little more supportive. When I come back to WWE, I'm with WWE." - Batista defending himself against fans

Vince McMahon
It appears that the WWE Network was launched at just the right time. Buyrates for Royal Rumble 2014 and Elimination Chamber 2014 suffered a considerable drop from the previous year. Vince McMahon no longer has to tout these numbers to his investors, though, because the company can state that the viewers have shifted over to the WWE Network.

Roman Reigns
While he has lost a bit of momentum since Royal Rumble 2014, there are still plans in WWE to give Roman Reigns a big push. Since the Shield pulled a face turn recently, there are talks of elevating Reigns to the point where he can be booked in a match against Triple H at Summerslam 2014. The hope there is that HHH can make him into a star by giving him a memorable match.

Andre the Giant
Despite not being utilized all that frequently on television, Justin Gabriel was given a spot in the Andre the Giant match at Wrestlemania 30. The belief is that WWE is rewarding him for not making a big fuss about being removed from Royal Rumble 2014 at the last minute. Management likes that he does as he is told backstage.
April 6, 2014
Andre the Giant
Since management has been unable to figure out a way for him to make his long awaited return, there are now rumors that Evan Bourne could be one of the guys to take the four remaining spots in the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal at Wrestlemania 30. The high flying performer was initially scheduled for Royal Rumble 2014, but WWE pulled him from the big match.
March 27, 2014
Bray Wyatt
If WWE goes through with their plans of putting the heavyweight championship on Daniel Bryan at Wrestlemania 30, then one of his first opponents could very well be Bray Wyatt, who is expected to receive a huge push at the pay per view over John Cena. The writers can push their match at Royal Rumble 2014 as the story behind the feud and title program.
March 23, 2014
Andre the Giant
At Royal Rumble 2014, Justin Gabriel came really close to making his pay per view return, but that spot was taken away from him at the last minute. His chances of working Wrestlemania 30 this year has increased tremendously now that he is one of the many veteran performers who are being penciled in for the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal.
March 18, 2014
Andre the Giant
The Great Khali made his return to the ring this week by working a match against CJ Parker at the WWE NXT taping. Prior to that, he had not worked a match since Royal Rumble 2014. The belief is that the former world heavyweight champion is going to be given a spot at Wrestlemania 30 in the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal.
March 16, 2014
Big Show
Some eyes backstage have been on the Great Khali, as management has not been utilizing him as much lately. He has only worked two televised matches, a win over Damien Sandow on Monday Night Raw and a brief appearance at Royal Rumble 2014. WWE also sent Big Show to India for a promotional tour instead of him recently as well.
February 22, 2014
Kevin Nash
When Kevin Nash made a surprise appearance at Royal Rumble 2014, many noted that he looked younger because he dyed his hair and beard black. Now that his brief stint with WWE is done, he has gone back to his natural gray look.
February 13, 2014
CM Punk

While we still do not have a definite answer as to how long he has been upset with the company, we do know now that CM Punk was already contemplating a departure from WWE as early as Royal Rumble 2014. He vented to Mick Foley at the time about not being happy within the company and having trouble dealing with injuries.

February 10, 2014
Alberto Del Rio
Since he has voiced his displeasure to those backstage, WWE has been attempting to appease Alberto Del Rio a bit. Since the start of 2014, the former world heavyweight champion has been given eight televised victories. His only losses came against Rey Mysterio on Smackdown and at Royal Rumble 2014.
February 7, 2014
Evan Bourne

After he was pulled from Royal Rumble 2014 at the last minute, Evan Bourne told fans on Twitter that he was still working on making his return to WWE, but as of right now, it does not appear that management is making that a priority backsage.

February 3, 2014
Big Show

Since the company wanted to sell the brutality of Brock Lesnar for his match against Big Show at Royal Rumble 2014, they had Mark Henry work an injury angle and take a couple of weeks off. It looks the former world champion is returning to WWE, possibly as soon as Monday Night Raw this week.

February 3, 2014
Daniel Bryan

After what took place at Royal Rumble 2014, WWE officials were concerned that the audience at Monday Night Raw was going to hijack the event by voicing their opinions, so in order to help squash some of that and control the crowd, management had Daniel Bryan cutting a promo to open up the show.

February 1, 2014
Daniel Bryan

Long known backstage as someone with a short fuse, Randy Orton was said to be irate with the fans at Royal Rumble 2014 because he feels that they interrupted his performance against John Cena by openly rooting for Daniel Bryan. Orton does have a history of being upset with audiences.

February 1, 2014
Alexander Rusev

When Alexander Rusev made his debut at Royal Rumble 2014, many were under the impression that it was a permanent call up to the main roster. However, it appears that management wants the developmental wrestler to have a little more seasoning by working in WWE NXT for a few more weeks.

January 31, 2014
Jey Uso
