Triple H
For those of you that missed Monday Night Raw this week, Brock Lesnar made his much anticipated return to WWE and challenged John Cena at Summerslam 2014 for the world heavyweight championship. The story is that Paul Heyman convinced Triple H to go with Plan C because it was the best chance at getting the strap away from Cena.

With Ric Flair in his corner, Triple H was successfully able to defend the World Heavyweight Championship against Scott Steiner at No Way Out 2003.

Triple H

On Monday Night Raw, general manager Eric Bischoff created the World Heavyweight Championship and awarded it to Triple H, who becomes the first person to hold this particular belt.

September 2, 2002
John Cena
Rumors are floating around that the segment on Monday Night Raw between John Cena and Ric Flair was a subtle way for WWE to retire the world heavyweight championship belt. For those that missed it, Cena handed the belt over to Flair and told the legendary performer to keep it. WWE has not released an official statement on the matter yet, so fans will be tuning in to Smackdown and WWE Battleground 2014 to see the fate of the belt.
July 15, 2014
Bobby Lashley
Prior to his injury, there were plans in place to have MVP winning the TNA World Heavyweight Championship from Eric Young. Since the company needed a heel champion to be the antagonist against Kurt Angle and his new on screen authority role, the belt went to Bobby Lashley instead. There are talks that TNA could try to figure out how to transfer the belt over to MVP soon.
July 5, 2014
Bobby Lashley
Based on all the moves that they have been making as of late, it seems that Dixie Carter and her company are hellbent on generating big numbers at these upcoming shows in New York City. TNA just announced that Jeff Hardy will be challenging Bobby Lashley for the world heavyweight championship at one of the shows. Both guys have name value thanks to their time in WWE.
June 21, 2014
Bobby Lashley
A big reason why Bobby Lashley was given the TNA World Heavyweight Championship this week is because he is viewed as a marketing asset. The company immediately sent out a press release to inform them that Lashley had become the new champion. TNA is touting his accomplishments as a collegiate athlete, military personnel, mixed martial arts and professional wrestling to the media.
June 20, 2014
Antonio Cesaro
Rumors going around right now has WWE giving the world heavyweight championship to a heel at Money in the Bank 2014. The belief is that the company will set someone up to feud with John Cena and Daniel Bryan over the next few months. Antonio Cesaro has been rumored for a few weeks now, but some are skeptical of that because he hasn't been given a ton of momentum by WWE. Management will either hot shot the belt to Bray Wyatt or go with the safe route in Randy Orton.
June 16, 2014
Austin Aries
Since MVP has a badly injured knee, TNA decided to change up the main event of Slammiversary 2014. Eric Young will still be defending the world heavyweight championship in a steel cage at the event, but he's now going to be doing so against two opponents. The winners of the respective matches between Samoa Joe, Bobby Lashley, Kenny King and Austin Aries will be challenging Young for the belt.
June 13, 2014
Chris Jericho
During a recent podcast interview with Chris Jericho, MVP revealed that he was going to try to fight through the knee injury and work Slammiversary 2014. The former United States Heavyweight Champion is scheduled to challenge Eric Young for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship at the pay per view. Management is still working on a backup plan in case his knee does not hold up, however.
June 11, 2014
Brie Bella
During the Payback 2014 pay per view, WWE did a segment where Stephanie McMahon demanded that Daniel Bryan make a decision about the world heavyweight championship. Instead of him giving up the belt that he chased for so long, Brie Bella told Stephanie that she was quitting WWE. Brie then gave a big slap to Stephanie. The belief is that Brie will be given some time off of television.
June 1, 2014
Eric Young
Slammiversary 2014 takes place later on this month, and the main event might be in jeopardy. Originally, Eric Young was scheduled to defend the TNA World Heavyweight Championship against MVP, but the challenger suffered some sort of knee injury while working an independent wrestling show in England over the weekend. No word yet on the severity of the injury, but MVP was limping pretty badly.
June 1, 2014
Eric Young
For those of you that do not watch Impact Wrestling on a regular basis, MVP has done a heel turn. The former United States Heavyweight Champion has also given himself a shot at Eric Young and the TNA World Heavyweight Championship at Slammiversary 2014 as well. Management pulled the trigger on the move, as they feel that MVP could be more valuable as an antagonist.
May 9, 2014
Brutus Magnus
In the main event of TNA Sacrifice 2014, Eric Young was able to defeat Brutus Magnus to retain the world heavyweight championship. Young scored the pin fall victory after delivering two piledrivers and a top rope elbow drop. During the match, Magnus attempted to cheat by using a weapon to win the TNA title back, but the referee caught him.
April 27, 2014
Eric Young
Rumors have it that people backstage in WWE are amused by the fact that TNA put their world heavyweight championship around the waist of Eric Young. It is not so much a shot at Young, as many in the industry feel that he is a good worker and a nice person. The ridicule is more about how TNA went about with the story line of crowning him as champion.
April 19, 2014
Eric Young
Since he is now the TNA World Heavyweight Championship, Eric Young is being given a bit of a gimmick change, as management wants to move him further away from the comedic character that he has portraying over the years. TNA wants fans to believe that Young is a credible champion. His Monster's Ball match against Abyss on Impact Wrestling was to aid that.
April 19, 2014
Eric Young
Rumors have it that another reason why TNA gave the world heavyweight championship to Eric Young was to keep him from joining Jeff Jarrett in Global Force Wrestling. Young and Jarrett have a long history together, and they remain on very good terms. Since he is a very good worker and well liked backstage, TNA would much rather he stay with them long term.
April 18, 2014
Eric Young
A message on Twitter from Mick Foley, where the WWE legend congratulates Eric Young on winning the TNA World Heavyweight Championship.
April 18, 2014
Bobby Roode
If TNA decides to keep the belt on Eric Young for the long term, an idea which is being tossed around backstage because of his marketing value at the moment, then management is going to push Bobby Roode up as a challenger for the world heavyweight championship. There are still talks of Brutus Magnus recapturing the belt at TNA Sacrifice 2014.

April 13, 2014
Eric Young
While fans are shocked that Eric Young has captured the TNA World Heavyweight Championship, there are actually a couple of reasons why management went this route. For starters, they wanted to reward Young for his years of loyalty to the company. Secondly, they want to capitalize a bit on his mainstream success as of late.
April 12, 2014
Eric Young
On Impact Wrestling last night, Eric Young shocked the world when he captured the TNA World Heavyweight Championship. Here is a picture of the staff at Animal Planet, the network where Young hosts a fishing show, supporting their favorite wrestler.

Hulk Hogan
A video of Hulk Hogan making his return to Smackdown. WWE asked the legendary former world heavyweight championship to make an addition television appearance this week to promote Wrestlemania 30.
April 6, 2014
Triple H
On Monday Night Raw, Triple H cut a promo that took a jab at wrestling fans online. Some more details have been revealed now. The segment was in response to what HHH saw online from fans who complained about WWE Battleground 2014 being a sub par show. It has been said on multiple occasions that he hates fans who think they know how the business works.
July 24, 2014
Ricky Steamboat
With the company losing millions of dollars this year, budget cuts are looming over everyone in WWE. The latest string of them has made a casualty out of a beloved hall of fame performer. Ricky Steamboat has quietly been released from his contract. The former Intercontinental Champion had been working in the talent relations department under Triple H over the past year.
July 19, 2014
Kenta Kobayashi
Triple H might be downplaying his arrival to the developmental program, but Kenta Kobayashi is far from a regular new performer joining WWE. Internally, he is being viewed as a major marketing asset as the company is hoping to expand its reaches in Japan. A television network has already agreed to air WWE NXT since Kobayashi will be featured on those shows. The Japanese star is also set to help promote the WWE Network when it expands overseas.
July 17, 2014
Triple H
"He just signed with us. I was there when he had his tryout at the WWE Performance Center and I met with him there. We've been working on this for a while. His training will start when he gets here. The thing is, you can be a big star anyplace else in the world. That gets you in the door. What you do once you get here is a whole different ballgame. He's no different than anybody else once he walks through the door of the Performance Center." - Triple H on how Kenta Kobayashi will be treated in WWE
July 17, 2014
Vince McMahon
With his career in MMA coming to a close soon, Rashad Evans wants to make the jump from UFC to WWE. Rumors are floating around right now that he has already contacted WWE to gauge their interest in signing him. Vince McMahon is not a huge fan of MMA, but he does know that UFC fighters have name value. Triple H is reportedly said to be interested in bringing Evans on board.
July 10, 2014
Triple H
By now, it's already clear to many that Triple H wants to put Roman Reigns over and make him a main event performer in WWE. However, that might not necessarily be happening overnight. Rumors are floating around that their big match will take place at Summerslam 2014. That might not be the last one. The belief is that this feud will be stretched out and could possible involve a big gimmick match of some sort before the year ends.
July 7, 2014
Samoa Joe
Some rumors are floating around this weekend that WWE is trying to sign Samoa Joe. The source of the speculations is said to be due to the fact that Triple H briefly followed Joe on Twitter. Sources are saying that Joe followed HHH back on the social media site, which means that they had the option for two way communications for a period of time this weekend. WWE has long avoided the signing of Joe, so this would be quite an interesting move if true.
July 6, 2014
Kane
On Monday Night Raw, WWE was quick to set up the main event for WWE Battleground 2014. John Cena will defend the heavyweight championship in a fatal four way match against Roman Reigns, Randy Orton and Kane. The move was set up by Triple H, who did not reveal his reasoning for putting Reigns, an adversary, into the title match instead of Seth Rollins.
July 1, 2014
Triple H
Even though we have another pay per view before then, plans are already being penciled in for Summerslam 2014. Roman Reigns is expected to have a big role on that show, but management isn't certain on the details just yet. Right now, WWE has either Randy Orton or Triple H putting over the former Shield member. Both feuds are expected to eventually happen during this year, but the order isn't certain.
July 1, 2014
Triple H
There was a bit of concern backstage for Randy Orton during the main event of Money in the Bank 2014. Early on in the match, he was struck by a ladder, which caused him to bleed pretty badly. Medical personnel and Triple H immediately tended to him to stop the wound. While there were some fears of a concussion, Orton opted to finish the match. Afterwards, he was given nearly a dozen staples to close the wound. Orton reportedly is undergoing some tests today to check for concussions.
June 30, 2014
Kofi Kingston
Thanks to the help of Kane, Seth Rollins was able to climb the ladder uninterrupted and win the briefcase at Money in the Bank 2014. The Big Red Monster came to the ring and attacked Dean Ambrose to clear the path. Kofi Kingston, Dolph Ziggler, Jack Swagger and Rob Van Dam were all laid out on the floor during the finale. WWE power couple Triple H and Stephanie McMahon came out afterwards to congratulate Rollins.
June 29, 2014
Randy Orton
When Seth Rollins turned on the Shield and joined Triple H and Randy Orton, fans wondered which of his former partners WWE was going to have him feuding with first. It appears that the choice is going to be Dean Ambrose. The two of them worked a match at a live event in Ontario this weekend, meaning that they could have been getting in some practice before working matches on television. Rollins will eventually feud with Roman Reigns down the line as well.
June 15, 2014
Randy Orton
When he turned his back on Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns, many were under the impression that Seth Rollins would be joining Triple H and Randy Orton in Evolution. However, WWE is having second thoughts on that plan, as there are currently nothing concrete about him being an official member of the stable. Rollins will simply be utilized as a heel who is allied with the Authority.
June 12, 2014
Triple H
The story on Monday Night Raw this week was that Randy Orton was on vacation and not at the show. The reason for that is to generate more heel heat for him from WWE fans. His character gets a shot at the world title from Triple H without having to win a qualifying match like the other performers are doing. No word yet on whether or not Orton was actually given the night off, though.
June 10, 2014
Daniel Bryan
Rumors are heating up this afternoon that Daniel Bryan will be stripped of the WWE championship tonight. Monday Night Raw is expected to open up with an announcement from the Authority, where it will most likely be Stephanie McMahon and Triple H revealing to the wrestling world that Bryan is not healthy enough to perform, so a new champion will be crowned in the near future.
June 9, 2014
Seth Rollins
In a pleasantly surprising move on Monday Night Raw, Seth Rollins did an unexpected heel turn and betrayed the Shield. As Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns were preparing to face off with Triple H and Randy Orton, Rollins shocked the WWE Universe by nailing his longtime partners with several steel chair shots. He stood tall with Orton and HHH afterwards to end the episode.
June 2, 2014
Triple H
On Monday Night Raw, WWE did a story line where Batista quit the company after an opening segment interview with Triple H. Batista was upset because he feels that he has been lied to about title opportunities. The former world heavyweight champion walked out of thing, leaving HHH and Randy Orton behind to wonder about the future of Evolution.
June 2, 2014
Triple H
During the post show for Payback 2014, Roman Reigns told fans that he might have suffered torn triceps during the big main event match involving Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins, Triple H, Randy Orton and Batista. Since the interview took place in front of cameras, rumors have it that WWE was just selling the brutality of the match. Reigns is expected to be at Monday Night Raw later on today.
June 2, 2014
Batista
A surprising buzz was created last night when fans made mention of Batista wearing blue ring gear at Payback 2014. At one point, it even become the top trend on Twitter, a fact that Michael Cole proudly boasted to fans. Batista was not nearly as amused, as he took to the social media site today to bash fans for focusing on the color of his outfit, as opposed to the tremendous performance that he, Randy Orton, Triple H, Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns put on.
June 2, 2014
Roman Reigns
In a rather surprising move, WWE had the Shield win convincingly against Evolution. Batista and Randy Orton were the first two performers to be eliminated from the main event match at Payback 2014, but both provided interference for Triple H after their eliminations. After taking a brutal beating, Roman Reigns picked up the win for his team. Many expected Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins to be eliminated during the match, but WWE opted to give them a dominant ending.
