Stephanie McMahon
On Monday Night Raw, many witnessed a brilliant publicity stunt that WWE launched when they invited Michael Sam, an openly gay football player who is trying to find an NFL team this season, to make an appearance on their television show next week. Stephanie McMahon has made another move to secure that deal by writing an open letter to the defensive end, calling him a hero.

Jeff Jarrett
There is a growing sense of optimism towards Jeff Jarrett and Global Force Wrestling. Some feel that he might have found a formula that can draw in a good amount of viewers. The belief is that GFW will showcase wrestling matches from around the world. Jarrett might even bring in international performers from time to time to showcase them on the television show that he is trying to put together.

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
Cameron
The big brawl between Naomi Knight and Cameron that you witnessed on Monday Night Raw this week was indeed the big breakup that has been teased over the last couple of weeks by WWE. As many already know, this story was set up for the sake of Total Divas, as producers wanted more dramatic stories for the reality television show. Since it is involved with another network, the belief is that WWE will get behind the story and put some emphasis on it.
July 9, 2014
Dixie Carter
A couple of days ago, it was revealed that Dixie Carter and company would do a big announcement in London. A lot of speculations floated around, including the possibility of doing an overseas tournament there. However, signs are pointing to a new television show instead for TNA. It would be designed specifically for their fans in England and the surrounding areas.
July 3, 2014
Cody Rhodes
Despite creating a buzz online with fans, Cody Rhodes had his Stardust character omitted by WWE during the company's broadcast of Monday Night Raw on Hulu. Every week, management decides which segments are important enough to include on that version of their television show. Rumors have it that WWE does not deem Rhodes and Goldust as a high priority at the moment.
June 17, 2014
Vince Russo
During a recent interview, Vince Russo revealed that he does not watch Monday Night Raw. The former WWE writer stated that it was not because of any backstage heat that he has towards the company. Russo simply stated that it is difficult for him to sit through three hours straight of a television show. He even stated that it was difficult for him to watch his favorite baseball team for three straight hours.
June 3, 2014
Steve Austin
Despite doing a good job of generating interest from fans the last time around, Tough Enough was put on the shelves. Now, it appears that the reality television show is being brought back as part of the WWE Network. No word yet on the involvement of Steve Austin, but since he did such a great job last time, management should be quite interested in bringing him back again as the host.
May 1, 2014
Eric Young
In a sign that he still holds some value to the network, Eric Young has been given another television show. This time, it is called No Limits, and it is supposed to be a continuation of his Off the Hook: Extreme Catches show. Young will be going around the country, and trying out various extreme activities, such as learning how to be a lumberjack in the Smoky Mountains.

Shawn Michaels
While he did make a brief appearance during Wrestlemania 30 week, Shawn Michaels is expected to be gone from WWE for the time being. The former world heavyweight champion will be focusing his energy on his television show and various promotional appearances for the time being.

April 24, 2014
Jeff Jarrett
In a rather nice win for his new Global Force Wrestling, Jeff Jarrett has revealed that he has signed a production deal with 25/7 Productions and Dave Broome, the man that created the popular Biggest Loser reality television show on NBC. Together, they are currently shopping a wrestling show around to the networks and hope to land a television spot soon.

Brie Bella
The big story line coming out of Total Divas this week is John Cena purchasing a house for Nikki Bella. The couple was the centerpiece of the reality television show earlier when Cena refused to marry Nikki, prompting wrestling fans to wonder if they were going to break up. Since Brie Bella got married to Daniel Bryan, Cena has to figure out ways to keep Nikki happy.

Steve Blackman
Now that the WWE Network has been launched, management has been looking into ideas for some new content for the service.

The series would follow the former WWE star and his team as they hunt down people.
March 22, 2014
Buff Bagwell
During a recent interview, Buff Bagwell noted that he was not being paid to have sex with people. The former WCW star stated that Showtime would not allow such a thing. It was discovered earlier this month that Bagwell had become a gigolo in Nevada, and that he was one of the stars of a new reality television show that focused on that industry.
March 20, 2014
Undertaker
On Monday Night Raw, it was announced that Undertaker was going to be making his first appearance on WWE Main Event this week. While it may seem odd for a main event guy of his status to be on that television show, the belief is that it is being done so that Vince McMahon can tout the secondary and tertiary shows during contract negotiations with the networks.
March 19, 2014
CM Punk
One of the things that was being discussed by WWE backstage before Monday Night Raw was the appearance that CM Punk made for the Talking Dead television show. Many noted how he looked a lot healthier than he had been for the previous year. The much needed time off has been very good for the former world heavyweight champion.
March 18, 2014
Tensai
With his in ring career fully behind him now, Tensai has been slowly gaining power backstage in WWE. He impressed management with his ability to function as a color commentator. Now, he has convinced them to let him have a bigger part in the company by training the developmental wrestlers. WWE likes the fact that Tensai has worked overseas and is familiar with a lot of different styles of wrestling.

Bill DeMott
Since the company is always searching for new talent, WWE held tryouts this past week. Running the event for the company were Bill DeMott, Norman Smiley, Tensai, Billy Gunn, Dean Malenko and William Regal. There were approximately 30 people trying out, with 20 of them having actual experience in professional wrestling.
April 1, 2014
Tensai
Since he has been making the transition from in ring performer to commentator, Tensai has been contemplating a name change, as his current moniker does not suit his new position with WWE NXT. During the television taping this week, he was introduced as Jason Alberts, which might be a play on his former character name of Prince Albert.
March 2, 2014
Karl Anderson
Through Twitter, Karl Anderson revealed that Tensai was making $349,000 a year in WWE. That amount is substantially higher than what the lower level and mid card guys in the company are making. It is especially high if you take into account that he is now transitioning from in ring performer to commentator.
February 23, 2014
Brodus Clay
There are those backstage in WWE that are wondering why the feud between Brodus Clay and Tensai never surfaced. Obviously, management wanted it to happen at one point, as they gave the split some television time. The feeling is that there is backstage heat on Clay, as he has not been utilized on television in three weeks now.
February 16, 2014
Tensai
With the way things are looking right now, it appears that Tensai is done as a full time in ring performer for WWE. He has been spending a lot of time lately working in other areas of the company. He has done commentary for WWE NXT and is currently working on a show for the WWE Network. He might still work matches occasionally, though.
February 15, 2014
Tensai
Accelerating his transition from professional wrestler to wrestling commentator, Tensai has started working on a new show for the WWE Network. He, Alex Riley and Booker T are working on a project right now, and the belief is that is will be a kickoff show for Monday Night Raw.
February 7, 2014
Naomi Knight
There is some confusion backstage in WWE over what the company is doing with Brodus Clay. While they made the effort to turn him heel, give him a new look and split him apart from Tensai, Naomi Knight and Cameron, management hasn't exactly been behind his push. He has lost his last seven televised matches and has only been used on Smackdown once this year.

"As far as my future goals, I hope to be a regular commentator on WWE NXT. From there, I hope to be part of a team to call Monday Night Raw or SmackDown. I would also like to be a trainer and producer for WWE at some point. I like to set lofty goals and tackle them a day at a time."

While he still continues to appear as an active in ring performer for WWE, Tensai is also working a side job as a commentator for NXT. The belief is that the veteran is simply preparing himself for a potentail career after he retires from the ring.

December 20, 2013
Tensai

The current plan in WWE is to have Naomi and Cameron leaving Brodus Clay, who has now turned heel, and Tensai to join Xavier Woods and R Truth. The segment on Monday Night Raw this week was designed to further that story line.

December 17, 2013
R Truth

Initially, the feud was designed to give the spotlight to newcomer Xavier Woods, but it now appears that WWE has shifted the attentiont to Brodus Clay and his impending heel turn instead. That's why they went with that segment on TLC last night.

December 16, 2013
Brodus Clay

After Tensai, Naomi and Cameron abandoned him during his match, Brodus Clay, who exhibited heel tendencies throughout the match at TLC, was defeated via pin fall by R Truth, who nailed his opponent with a kick to the face.

December 13, 2013
R Truth

The top candidates to work the kickoff match at the TLC pay per view right now are Xavier Woods, R Truth, Brodus Clay and Tensai. There's also a chance that WWE could opt to do a singles match between Woods and Clay as well.

December 7, 2013
Brodus Clay

Initially, WWE had plans on turning Brodus Clay, Tensai, Naomi and Cameron all into heels, but with Total Divas being signed for another season, executives from E! reportedly asked the company to keep the Funkadactyls as faces.

December 7, 2013
Xavier Woods

While many fans are under the impression that it is a permanent thing, WWE might not be doing a permanent heel turn with Brodus Clay. The belief is that this is just to give Xavier Woods something to work with.

December 3, 2013
Tensai

Since the company likes having him around, WWE has been testing out Tensai as a color commentator down in NXT.
