One of the ideas being tossed around backstage is for him to replace Antonio Cesaro in the Real Americans stable with Zeb Colter and Jack Swagger.

Carlito
While a lot of people were under the assumption that his career as a professional wrestler was over after he suffered a serious neck injury, Jesse Sorensen has shown that there is life after TNA.

Jim Ross
"Where did the info come from that ESPN was interested in Renee Young? Not saying it's true or not but it certainly made the rounds quickly within the IWC. Renee is a talented, young woman, without question, and I wish her the best no matter what she decides to do long term with her career. Renee has skills, a great look and isn't a high maintenance talent but is easy to produce." - Jim Ross on rumors about ESPN being interested in WWE interviewer Renee Young

Mick Foley
"He was an intense guy, and he was a perfectionist. His career was based on looking as good as possible. That meant eating as good as possible, training as hard as possible, avoiding anything that a normal human being might reach out to in their everyday culinary affairs." - Mick Foley on the diet that Ultimate Warrior had

Throughout the past several months, Chavo Guerrero has been taking in quite a few business meetings, in order to set up his career outside of professional wrestling.

Rampage Jackson and John Morrison recently filmed an episode with him.

Brutus Magnus
"I'm as grateful to Sting as anybody in the wrestling business for the benefit he has had in my career. Steve is a great guy and very very smart and just a model citizen as far as the way he conducts himself and how much respect he commands. There are some people who seem to be obsessed with respect and seem to be obsessed with guys not showing them enough respect but Sting is a guy who has never had to pull any stunts, never had to bully anyone, never had to throw his weight around or pull rank; he commands respect. The same could be said about Kurt Angle." - Brutus Magnus discusses how Sting is backstage
April 15, 2014
Sting
"Mourning the loss of Jim Hellwig. I don't believe anyone has ever published this picture before today. The snapshot was taken two days before Thanksgiving in 1985, as we prepared to leave my house in Newhall, California and embark on a career in wrestling. Jim always challenged me to strive at being the best, and I'll forever be grateful for the encouragement and motivation he provided. I was looking forward to catching up with him, and I'm saddened we didn't have that opportunity before he passed. My heart goes out to his wife Dana and their two daughters, and they will remain in my prayers." - Sting speaks about the death of the Ultimate Warrior

Billy Kidman
Following in the footsteps of several other wrestlers who have done the same in the past, Billy Kidman has released a book. However, there are talks that the former WCW star is only releasing it in Europe. There are also those that state that the book is rather short, even though it is supposed to encompass his entire career in professional wrestling.

Randy Savage
Back when he was a star for WWE during the late 1980s, Randy Savage made a discovery that would have a bit of an impact on the professional wrestling industry. The former world heavyweight champion was the one that discovered Sid Vicious, whom he convinced to give the industry a try. Savage sent Vicious to train with Tojo Yamamoto to start his career.
March 22, 2014
Bobby Eaton
Since he was the only professional wrestler in the history of the industry to have been trained by Ric Flair, Stan Lane paid homage to mentor very early on in his career. At one point in time, he used the name Stan Flair. He also went by Nature Boy Stan Lane, while making a name for himself in Florida. He became Sweet Stan Lane while teaming with Bobby Eaton in the Midnight Express.

Colt Cabana
"Yeah, a lot of people tweeted it towards me. I think he is entitled to his opinion. You can't fault people for having an opinion. Luckily for me, I've never been put in a position to hire and fire people, and he was in that position and he can't hire everybody. I'm one of the people that Jim Cornette didn't want. Obviously the people that he didn't want aren't going to be happy about it. That's life. I could hold a grudge, but I don't. I understand that you have to hire and you have to fire and the ones that you fire aren't going to be happy. It's about going on and moving on. Luckily, I've done way bigger and better things since leaving Ring of Honor. Maybe it was a mistake by them for letting me go, and maybe it wasn't if they're happy with the direction that they've gone. I don't hold any grudge against Jim. I'm almost kind of thankful that I was able to go on to better places in my career." - Colt Cabana addresses the backstage heat he has with Jim Cornette

Mike Rotunda
Back when he was with the NWA, Mike Rotunda had an amateur wrestler gimmick when he teamed with Rick Steiner. It was actually based on his real life athletic career in college. Rotunda really did wrestle at Syracuse University. He was never an All American, though.
March 21, 2014
Bobby Eaton
Despite being one of the best performers in the history of professional wrestling, Ric Flair has opted against training others in the art of the game. In fact, the former NWA champion has only formally trained one person in his career. That man is Stan Lane, who formed the legendary Midnight Express tag team with Bobby Eaton during the 1980s.
March 20, 2014
CM Punk
Since he is no longer on the road for WWE every single week, CM Punk has found himself with some free time. The former world heavyweight champion was recently spotted in the studios, recording guest vocals for a band called Madball. The belief is that this is just a favor to his friends, as opposed to Punk seriously pursuing a career in music.
March 20, 2014
Chris Jericho
In the eyes of the fans, WWE is definitely a step up from TNA. However, that is not the case when it comes to the performers themselves. During a podcast interview with Chris Jericho, Rob Van Dam revealed that several of the guys backstage in TNA did not view WWE as a wise career move for themselves, as a lot of performers have failed to make progress after signing with Vince McMahon.
March 18, 2014

Batista
For the longest time there, MVP was the longest reigning WWE United States Heavyweight Champion, but that mark looks to be broken soon if Dean Ambrose can hold on to the belt a little while longer. The Shield member rarely defends the belt, but WWE could opt to include it in the story line against Triple H, Randy Orton and Batista.
April 18, 2014
Batista
Even though the stable was just reunited, it appears that WWE is already planting seeds for an eventual breakup between Triple H, Batista and Randy Orton. Through an online poll, the company has been asking fans which of the three is the most dominant. The belief is that WWE will go with a story line where egos break apart the trio like it did several years back.
April 18, 2014
Triple H
Even though Daniel Bryan and John Cena are both expected to work their respective matches at the pay per view, Extreme Rules 2014 will be built around a huge six man tag team match featuring Batista, Triple H, Randy Orton, Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose. WWE might even have Evolution and Shield closing out the show as well.
April 17, 2014
Randy Orton
Since he was on such a roll, many wondered if Daniel Bryan was actually going to be given time off after his wedding to Brie Bella to enjoy his honeymoon.

WWE filled in his spot by having Triple H, Batista and Randy Orton reforming Evolution.

After beating Triple H, Randy Orton and Batista at Wrestlemania 30 for the heavyweight championship, a lot of fans wondered who WWE will choose to work with Bryan in his first month as champion.

April 15, 2014
Triple H
There has been a bit of a shift in philosophy backstage with Triple H taking over more of the power from Vince McMahon, as the former world heavyweight champion is more inclined to respond to internet wrestling fans by taking jabs through the story lines. For years, McMahon has long avoided any connection with fans online, but HHH likes sending messages to people who complain.
April 14, 2014
Triple H
Rumors have it that Triple H is the main driving force behind Bruno Sammartino staying involved with WWE. The company already has received his biggest marketing contributions when he was inducted into the hall of fame, but since HHH is a big fan of Sammartino, the two sides are maintaining a working relationship. Sammartino was at Wrestlemania 30 weekend, even though he was not featured on screen.
April 14, 2014
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.

WWE generally likes to put everyone to good use at their television and pay per view events.

The trio have been working in developmental for a bit of time now and are waiting for their chance to be called up to the main roster.
April 8, 2014
Triple H
In a sign of how much things have changed backstage, Vince McMahon actually left Wrestlemania 30 before the main event took place. Normally, the CEO would be there until the very end, but he opted to ride in the ambulance with the Undertaker to the hospital. Triple H and Stephanie McMahon were left in charge of the pay per view.
April 7, 2014
John Cena
Considering how incredible the show was, WWE should not have any issues with coming up with Wrestlemania 30 highlights to show on Monday Night Raw this week. Brock Lesnar, Undertaker, Hulk Hogan, Steve Austin, Rock, Daniel Bryan, Triple H, Batista, John Cena, Bray Wyatt, Randy Orton, Kofi Kingston, Big Show and Antonio Cesaro provided plenty of memorable Wrestlemania moments.
April 7, 2014
Stephanie McMahon
