Theodore Long
WWE released a lot of people on Thursday. While Theodore Long was among the many names, his contract had actually expired and management opted against keeping him around. Since he is no longer under any contractual obligation to WWE, Long is free to sign with TNA or Global Force Wrestling if he so chooses.

Theodore Long
There was a surprising amount of fans who have been wanting to see Theodore Long return as an on screen character, but that will not be happening.

Theodore Long
While he hasn't been a relevant part of Monday Night Raw or Smackdown in quite some time now, Theodore Long is still actually employed by WWE. The creative department simply does not have a story line for him to work with at the moment. The long rumored feud between he and Booker T has essentially been put to rest and will not be utilized.

Daniel Bryan
"It was such a huge match, and I feel like at every Mania since then, I haven't had the opportunity to do that again. I'm hoping at Wrestlemania 30 or Wrestlemania 31 to bounce back to that level again. The wheel goes round and round and comes back and opportunities are given again. You just have to remember that. After four years of experience -- and especially after the match with Daniel Bryan at WrestleMania 27 for the U.S. title that ended up being a dark match -- you've got to realize that patience is a huge key in this game." - Sheamus talks about how the wrestling business works

Theodore Long
While there are some minor rumors about him potentially joining TNA or Global Force Wrestling, the widespread belief is that Theodore Long is more than likely going to retire now that he no longer works for WWE. He's already at a pretty advanced age, and his name value is not quite what it used to be since he was kept off of television for so long.

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.
October 21, 2014
John Cena
Initially, WWE felt that a match between John Cena and Randy Orton at Hell in a Cell 2014 was going to be able to sell itself. Management reportedly noticed the lack of interest and a good amount of complaint from fans, so they made the decision to change things up. The winner now gets a shot at the heavyweight championship, which should pique interest from more fans.
October 21, 2014
Rock
As many of you already know, the Rock is in Japan to promote the Hercules movie that he stars in. While there, he decided to have dinner with a very famous individual.

Vince McMahon
Chalk up another victory for Vince McMahon and his quest to draw in a younger audience. The company has reached a deal with Nickelodeon. The network will start airing episodes of Slam City this week.

October 21, 2014
Cameron
Since Nikki Bella and Cameron have confirmed it publicly, the widespread belief among fans is that the cast member of Total Divas are not allowed to hold a championship in WWE. Stephanie McMahon, however, is disputing that rumor. During a recent interview, she flat out denied it when asked about the rumor. McMahon stated that it would be great for one of the cast members to hold the belt because it would drive more attention to the story.
October 21, 2014
Justin Roberts
When news broke that Justin Roberts had been given a release by WWE, fans naturally speculated as to who would replace him in the role. Initially, the belief was that Lilian Garcia would be remaining on Smackdown because it suits her schedule more, but it has now been revealed that she will be making a return to Monday Night Raw. Some are saying that the move will be temporary until WWE can find someone who can fill the position permanently.
October 20, 2014
Alicia Fox
The expanding cast of Total Divas will include Alicia Fox next season. WWE has decided to include as many of their female performers as possible on the show, and Alicia was quite willing to sign up for the reality television show. For a lot of the girls, the hope is that the extra exposure will help them build up their name value for when they eventually leave the company and pursue other things.
October 20, 2014
Paige
In an attempt to draw in even more viewers, the producers of Total Divas and WWE have decided to add new faces to the show. Paige was chosen to be one of the two cast additions. She is young, has a different look, is from England and has already been the Divas champion. Speculations are that the show will portray her as the new girl being given preferential treatment from management.
October 20, 2014
Mickie James
It has now been revealed that Mickie James is interested in making a return to WWE. She recently took several months off from the independent wrestling circuit to give birth to a child.

No word yet on how much interest their is from WWE at the moment.

Gene Snitsky
Through social media, Gene Snitsky has expressed his dissatisfaction with TNA for not bringing him on board full time. He did a couple of segments on Impact Wrestling this summer, but management has opted to remain fiscally responsible, as they are still trying to secure a new television contract. The company is expected to start signing wrestlers are that happens.
October 19, 2014
Great Muta
Earlier this month, the Great Muta promised to attack the Rock when the former WWE star visited Japan to promote his Hercules movie.

Dean Ambrose
During a recent interview, Dean Ambrose revealed that he had no idea that he was going to be the lead actor in a WWE movie. He thought he was just going to have a really small part as a background character. However, upon reading the script, he realized that he was the lead role. Ambrose also admitted that he was not qualified for the gig, but management thought he could pull it off.
October 18, 2014
Sin Cara
In a rather peculiar move, WWE opted to inform the local media in Mexico that the Sin Cara was being performed by the original wrestler. That is not the case at all, since he was released some time ago. Many in Mexico are already aware of that fact and know that he is currently working for AAA under a different name. No word yet on why WWE opted to make that claim.
October 18, 2014
Dixie Carter

October 17, 2014
Justin Roberts
While the news of his release from WWE surprised the fans, Justin Roberts apparently knew that it was coming. A couple of weeks ago, the announcer attempted to trademark his name. No word yet on whether or not that was successful. He is also currently in Hawaii, a trip that appeared to have been booked prior to his release after the latest episode of Monday Night Raw.
October 16, 2014
Brock Lesnar
While Brock Lesnar is not defending the WWE Heavyweight Championship for the time being, that does not mean that he is simply just sitting around the house. In addition to working out on a daily basis, the former UFC Heavyweight Champion has been doing a lot of hunting up in Canada recently. No word yet on when his official return to WWE is, but many are expecting it to be in time for Royal Rumble 2015.
October 16, 2014
Brodus Clay
Back in June, Brodus Clay was given a release by WWE, so he informed his fans that his professional wrestling career was far from over. After exploring his options in Japan, the former bodyguard for Snoop Dogg decided to remain stateside by signing with TNA. He made his television debut for the company this week on Impact Wrestling by aligning himself with Ethan Carter and defeating Shark Boy in a match.
October 16, 2014
Zema Ion
Since TNA is not very active right now with live events, several of their performers have been looking into other ways of making money with the holidays just around the corner. Guys like Zema Ion and Robbie E are looking to be booked down in Mexico, and there are other stars possibly attempting the same thing. Wrestlers are also looking into the independent circuit and Japan as options as well.
