Ultimate Warrior
WWE has just announced that the Ultimate Warrior will be on Monday Night Raw tonight. He was inducted into the hall of fame during Wrestlemania 30 weekend. No word yet on what he will be doing on television this week, but there are those that believe that this might be a long term thing, as Ultimate Warrior is now signed to a multiple year contract with WWE.
April 7, 2014
CM Punk
Even though he has not been with the company for quite a few weeks now, CM Punk is still receiving paychecks from WWE. He still ranks among the top merchandise movers in the entire company, with some reports stating that he only trails John Cena in that category. Punk is still under contract to WWE, so management is still paying him his royalties.
April 18, 2014
Brooke Tessmacher
Since he is one of their more underrated performers, TNA has managed to sign Robbie E to a long term contract extension. Some within the company view that he can be a star down the line, especially since he is still just 30 years of age. There were some questions as to whether or not Robbie was going to stay with the company since the status of his girlfriend Brooke Tessmacher has been up in the air.
April 16, 2014
Sting
While an agreement has been reached between the two sides, it appears that Sting still has yet to sign the contract, wanting to make sure that he and his people go through the details of the arrangement with WWE very finely before making a commitment. One of the main issues is the amount of dates that Sting will have to work as an in ring performer. He will not be wrestling much for WWE.
April 15, 2014
Rey Mysterio
Some potentially interest news coming out of WWE this week is that Rey Mysterio might have actually allowed his contract with the company to expire. The former world heavyweight champion hopped on a plane yesterday afternoon with his family to Hawaii for a little vacation. He was not on Monday Night Raw, and he is not expected at Smackdown.
April 15, 2014
Christopher Daniels
While rumors have persisted for months now that he was going to be leaving the company once his contract expires, there are talks that Christopher Daniels could be sticking around with TNA. Some are under the belief that a new contract has been reached, as he is going to be challenging for the X Division Championship against Seiya Sanada in Japan later on this week.
April 14, 2014
Heath Slater
Since the company needs room for all the new stars that they are bringing up from the developmental program, WWE is expected to allow several of the veteran performers to leave the company soon. The belief is that Heath Slater will be allowed to walk once his contract expires. The 3MB member has expressed frustration backstage over not receiving a push.
April 14, 2014
Chris Sabin
While the company has managed to bring in a couple of new faces over the last several months, TNA has suffered a loss in their talent roster, as Chris Sabin has opted to leave the company. His contract has expired, and the offer presented to him was not favorable enough for him to stick around. Sabin is heading back to the independent wrestling circuit for the time being.
April 13, 2014
Aksana
Another name that is rumored to be released by WWE soon is Aksana. While she is on good terms with management now, the backstage relationship has always been up and down. The belief is that the company views her as being expendable and will more than likely allow her to walk once her contract expires. WWE needs room for newer stars.
April 13, 2014
Goldust
Since WWE introduced quite a bit of new performers on Monday Night Raw this week, rumors have been running rampant about which of the current stars on the main roster are going to be removed to make room. One of the names that has popped up is Goldust, as his contract with WWE is expiring in the near future. The veteran performer signed a short term deal upon his return last year.
April 13, 2014
Mick Foley
There are rumors floating around right now that Mick Foley is looking into the possibility of signing a contract with Ring of Honor. The hardcore legend is apparently a free agent now that his contract with WWE has expired. Foley was also recently spotted at a comedy show wearing a ROH tee shirt. No word yet on whether or not the company has interest in signing him.
April 12, 2014
Sting
Rumors are heating up that Sting and WWE have finally agreed upon a contract. Negotiations between the two sides have been ongoing for the better part of the past decade. No word yet on what type of role Sting will have with WWE, but there are talks that he will be a television character. A match at Wrestlemania 31 is still a possibility.
April 10, 2014
Prince Devitt
Even though he rejected a nice contract from WWE, Prince Devitt is still being pursued by TNA. The company feels that they are a much better fit for the international star than WWE because they can allow him a much more flexible schedule, one that would enable him to keep working in New Japan throughout the year. Devitt is said to be considering the offer.
April 10, 2014
CM Punk
Since he walked away from the company, CM Punk has now been removed from the upcoming Flintstones movie. To make it easier on the script writers, WWE has decided to replace him with Rey Mysterio, which should make it fairly easy for them to adapt the story line. The belief backstage is that Punk is going to just wait until his contract expires this summer.

April 8, 2014
Ric Flair
For some odd reason, the financial status of certain professional wrestlers remains a hot topic among fans. Many believe that Ric Flair is broke. While he has definitely gone through some hard times with money, the former world heavyweight champion is currently under contract to WWE. Since he has been working for them, he is receiving income on a regular basis.
April 8, 2014
David Otunga
Since he had not been seen on Monday Night Raw in quite some time, a lot of fans questioned whether or not David Otunga was under contract with WWE. Those queries were answered last night when Otunga worked the Wrestlemania 30 battle royal. It was a reward from the company for his work as an ambassador. Otunga routinely makes appearances for WWE still.
April 7, 2014
Ezekiel Jackson
Some bad news for those of you that have been waiting for Ezekiel Jackson to return to the main roster. He is no longer with WWE. Jackson revealed that his contract with the company expired over the weekend. Management was not interested in signing him to a new deal, as they would much rather focus on developing a new person instead.
April 7, 2014
Christopher Daniels
When word came out that Christopher Daniels was on the verge of leaving TNA after his contract expired, the belief was that he would head to Japan to work. Apparently, that is true, as the former X Division Champion will be challenging Seiya Sanada, the current champion, at a Wrestle-1 show on April 17 in Tokyo.
April 6, 2014
Hulk Hogan
Depending on how well the show draws in the audience, there might be a second season of Legends House on the WWE Network. If it were to happen, then Hulk Hogan becomes a candidate to become the star of the show. Management wants to keep on using him after Wrestlemania 30 since he is under contract, so several ideas are being discussed currently.
April 5, 2014
Sting
There are rumors going around right now that WWE could air a promotional video for Sting at Wrestlemania 30, so that fans will tune into Monday Night Raw to see his debut. There have been no confirmation of his contract signing, but a lot of people backstage seem to be confident that it is a done deal between the two sides.

"I was told it was reported WWE was 'there' for us. 'There' is the understatement of a lifetime. They were a warm blanket to us three and we were quickly absorbed into their family.

April 15, 2014
Miz
While there were talks about building a stable around Dolph Ziggler and Miz, two performers who have not been pushed as much as they used to be lately, those discussions have grown a bit dormant as of late. WWE has been focused on bringing up the developmental wrestlers from WWE NXT, and they have been occupied with the tribute show for Ultimate Warrior.
April 15, 2014
Ultimate Warrior
Now that the autopsy test has been concluded, it has been officially announced that the Ultimate Warrior died of heart failure, with the official statement being "Atherosclerotic/Arteriosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease". This qualifies as being a natural death, where drugs and alcohol are not directly related. However, long term drug use in the past could have been indirectly related.

Ultimate Warrior
In a very classy move by the company, WWE sent two senior officials to Arizona to help the family of the Ultimate Warrior after his death. The move took place almost immediately after the legendary performer died of a heart attack. The story has been picked up by TMZ, and the company has received quite a bit of praise for doing such a good deed.

Colin Cowherd, a host on ESPN, bashed CM Punk on his radio show this week. He was critical of the former WWE star for remarks that he made on Twitter about Ultimate Warrior's death not being a result of drugs. Unfortunately, though, Cowherd was not aware that Punk has not been active on social media since leaving WWE. He was actually responding to a parody account.
April 12, 2014
Ultimate Warrior
As expected, WWE is turning the next episode of Monday Night Raw into a three hour tribute to the Ultimate Warrior, who died earlier this week.

There are also rumors that former wrestlers are being called in for the event as well.
