Terry Funk
It appears that the social media experiment for Terry Funk has come to an end, as the legendary NWA star has been quiet for almost half a year now. Funk was pretty active with his status updates back in September, where he promoted some merchandise. He was silent until posting something about WWE in December. No status updates since then.

Reports have surfaced that the newly named Hideo Itami is indeed having some trouble making the adjustments.

Curtis Axel
With Ryback making his return on Monday Night Raw, many are wondering about the fate of his former tag team partner, Curtis Axel. It looks like management will utilize him as a role player in the singles division. The former Intercontinental Champion worked a match this week against Kofi Kingston on WWE Main Event. The company really likes having a veteran performer like Axel around, so job security should not be an issue anytime soon.
October 29, 2014
Christian
Management does not want Christian back in the wrestling ring, but since he is still on the payroll, the company is finding various ways to put him to good use. The latest task has the former world heavyweight champion flying over to France to do some promotional work for the recently released WWE 2K15 video game. Christian will make various media appearances and encourage consumers to make the purchase.
October 29, 2014

WWE fans in the arena chanted his catchphrase and cheered for him, while online fans helped his name become a trend on various social media websites.

The two of them still maintain a close relationship with management.
October 28, 2014
Randy Orton
As many already know, Randy Orton is being given time off by WWE to prevent him from being burnt out on the road.

Orton has been cast as the lead role in the upcoming Condemned 2 movie, which is a sequel to the film that starred Steve Austin.
October 27, 2014
CM Punk
There is some development in the bitter feud between WWE and CM Punk, it seems.

Something might have changed backstage, as WWE is selling Punk merchandise again.
October 27, 2014
John Cena
Rumors have long been floating around that there is some professional resentment from Randy Orton towards John Cena because he feels that WWE shows preferential treatment towards Cena.

October 26, 2014
Bobby Lashley
Karl Etherington was undefeated and the British heavyweight champion when he walked into Kansas Star Arena in Mulvane last night. By the time that Bellator 130 had ended, however, his unblemished record was no more. About 90 seconds into the fight, Etherington slipped on a judo throw, so Bobby Lashley was able to capitalize and land enough punches to get the referee to stop the match.
October 25, 2014
Undertaker
Good news for wrestling fans who hope that the Undertaker remains in the industry in some sort of capacity after retirement.

October 24, 2014
Alberto Del Rio
WWE is looking for a new social media manager. While that normally would not generate much interest, it does so here in this case because the previous guy that held the spot was Cody Barbierri, the allegedly racist employee that played a huge part in the controversial Alberto Del Rio release earlier in the year. No word yet on whether or not the release is related to the incident, but more on the story should be revealed in the upcoming days and weeks.
October 24, 2014
Christian
There is going to be another Edge and Christian reunion in the near future, but unfortunately for WWE fans, it will not be taking place inside of a wrestling ring.

Batista
While he has long maintained that he has no desires to leave WWE for Hollywood, John Cena is publicly expressing interest in expanding his horizons.

Dean Ambrose
Rumors are floating around that Randy Orton suffered a serious injury during the handicap street fight tag team match on Monday Night Raw. It took place early in the match when Dean Ambrose dove out of the ring and on to the heels. Orton reportedly told the trainer that the ruptured disc in his back was messed up. No word yet on whether or not he can work Hell in a Cell 2014, but as a precaution, WWE kept Orton from working Smackdown this week.
October 22, 2014
Vince McMahon
Bad news for Vince McMahon today. He lost some more money, as WWE stocks was hit with quite the drop. The belief is that investors are jumping ship before quarterly results are announced at the end of October. Many are under the impression that the company will not reach their goal of breaking a million subscribers for the WWE Network. Another major drop could take place when the announcement is made.

Jeff Jarrett
If Jeff Jarrett wants Global Force Wrestling to do well right off the bat, then he's going to need some familiar faces on the show.

The two of them are booked for a match against one another at an independent wrestling show on December 6, and Morrison has acknowledged that they will be discussing some business backstage.
October 22, 2014
Dixie Carter
At the end of the year, the long businesss relationship between TNA and Spike will be coming to an end. Dixie Carter, however, has only filmed enough episodes of Impact Wrestling to last until the middle of November. Reports have surfaced that the company will simply rely on recap shows during the final month of the year, as they make the transition to what hopefully will be a new home.
October 22, 2014
Jeff Jarrett

October 22, 2014
AJ Lee
There are reports floating around right now that the reason why AJ Lee was not chosen to be a cast member on Total Divas is because she is married to CM Punk. However, she has repeatedly stated in the past that she was not interested in doing a reality television show. She enjoys her privacy and prefers to focus on being a wrestler. Management recently added Alicia Fox and Paige to the series.
