The man legally known as Dave Bautista stated that he doesn't like the idea of working television because the front office is too dependent on scripts.

Rumor has it that the Bella Twins have been pushing hard to get their own spin off show. They want to do so because it would provide their friends and family an opportunity to gain more exposure on television. WWE is hesitant because they fear that Total Divas would not be much of a draw with Nikki Bella and Brie Bella, as they are viewed the stars of the show. There is also said to be some backstage heat towards the sisters from the other divas for this.

If Tommy Dreamer wanted an upgrade for announcer, then he might take a look at Justin Roberts. He still has passion for professional wrestling. Roberts only left WWE because he had grown disenchanted with some of the things that the front office was doing behind the scenes. Otherwise, he would have remained in the industry. House of Hardcore could benefit by bringing in another familiar voice and face for television.

She will only miss episodes of Monday Night Raw.

Some bad news if you're hoping to see Zeb Colter back on television. The belief right now is that his return is unlikely to happen because WWE simply has no desires to put a lot of focus on Jack Swagger. He is now considered someone that is lost in the shuffle. Despite being a former world heavyweight champion, his role nowadays will be that of a filler. Job security for Swagger is said to be pretty low, as management feel he is replaceable.
