For years, there was backstage heat between Ultimate Warrior and Vince McMahon.

Ultimate Warrior
"I've been really quiet since the passing of my husband and the father of my girls. Someone sent me what Mr Bollea had to say in video interview with Grantland yesterday and I would just like to ask him to stop. He is the only person in the WWE Universe who did not give a call or send a card. My girls asked why he didn't check on us like everyone else and I explained simply there isn't a camera at our mailbox or in the house when we receive our calls. I would ask respectfully Mr Bollea, for you to understand my girls hurt and just let some time pass before you say anything more." - wife of the Ultimate Warrior to Hulk Hogan
August 15, 2014
Jake Roberts

May 23, 2014
Ultimate Warrior
"I must tell you that I commented that night when he did come on stage with his two beautiful little girls looking so proud, as he was as well, but when they left and went to the back, I noticed it even more... I felt that he wasn't walking well and I thought that was due to some injuries that caused that. I also noticed that when he came to speak, that he seemed, I don't want to say out of breath, but he was sweating and all that. I didn't think too much of it on the night and thought maybe he was nervous or whatever, but I just didn't feel like there was something wrong with him and I had no idea whatsoever as to what was to follow, that was quite a shock." - Bruno Sammartino discusses Ultimate Warrior condition before death

Ultimate Warrior
"He's definitely a legendary guy that deserves to be in the WWE Hall of Fame, I'm glad he got to go in when he was still alive. I always respected him as a performer, some of his matches were pretty quick I remember he came in the Winnipeg arena once and beat Andre the Giant in 30 seconds, at the time I was like, 'What a rip off! That sucks.' But I remember Wrestlemania 6 where he had a classic with Hulk Hogan, much like a lot of guys from that time period he had good matches when he had the right opponent." - Chris Jericho on Ultimate Warrior as a performer
April 29, 2014
Hulk Hogan
"I only treat people the way that they treat me and I only met Warrior once and he was really gracious and really cool to me back in 1998 in WCW. He was there to do something with Hulk Hogan and I remember I went up to say hi to him and he went, 'Hey, Chris Jericho, I know you, you're doing a great job you're doing some good work.' I was a nobody at the time and I remember thinking, 'Wow, the Warrior likes me that totally smokes.' It made me feel that I must be doing something right and it gave me a little bit of a boost and I always remembered that." - Chris Jericho meets Ultimate Warrior backstage
April 29, 2014
Chris Masters

April 22, 2014
Brie Bella
Some crazy rumors are floating around right now about Nikki Bella and Brie Bella competing in a Hell in a Cell match at Hell in a Cell 2014. WWE is extremely unlikely to do this because they do want their female performers in gimmick matches that might cause severe injury, but the rumors have some merit because it was revealed by an insider who has accurately broken the news on a couple of things in the past.
September 29, 2014
Big Show
Considering how far down the ladder he has been dropped, it's easy to understand why there are a lot of rumors about possible backstage heat on Bray Wyatt. Speculations were high over the weekend because Wyatt lost cleanly in a match against Big Show, a performer that is not being pushed. A possible explanation for the loss is that WWE usually allows the baby faces to win at live events, in order to appease the audience.
September 28, 2014
Homicide
When TNA originally brought Homicide back into the mix, it was designed as something temporary. However, the veteran performer did such a good job at getting a reaction from the audience that management had no choice but to keep him around a bit longer. They changed up the stories a bit for him, and he ended up being given an X division title match against Samoa Joe.
September 26, 2014
Steve Austin
Some heavy speculations have arisen this week on the possible return of Steve Austin to WWE. Reports have surfaced that management has informed manufacturers to go heavy on products related to Stone Cold and informed distributors to prepare for a boost in merchandise coming through. No word yet on what Austin will be doing when he comes back, but there is a chance that it could just be a brief appearance.
September 26, 2014
Stephanie McMahon
Some major trouble is reportedly brewing behind the scenes in WWE, as a new power struggle has just been revealed. Triple H and Stephanie McMahon are trying to take some power away from George Barrios and Michelle Wilson, two high ranking executives within the corporation. HHH and Stephanie are using the early failures of the WWE Network against Barrios and Wilson.
September 25, 2014
Vince McMahon
Vince McMahon reportedly has a rule about the cast of Total Divas. None of them are allowed to hold the championship while they are a part of that reality show. No word yet on why McMahon has that rule in place right now, but it is quite peculiar since WWE basically scripts a lot of their segments based on what is happening on Total Divas.
September 25, 2014
AJ Styles
While he has some resentment towards the company for letting him away, the door has not yet been completely closed on AJ Styles making a return to TNA next year. He enjoys working in Japan but would much rather be closer to his family at all times. Once Impact Wrestling secures a new home and the company can afford to hand out big contracts again, Styles could be one of the names brought back.
September 25, 2014
Vince McMahon
The latest episode of Monday Night Raw was a prime example of just how hectic things are backstage in WWE. About an hour and a half before the show was to be aired live to a nationwide audience, Vince McMahon decided to scrap the entire show and write it all over again from scratch. That caused quite a frenzy because the writers were barely given enough time to finish the scripts for the wrestlers.
September 25, 2014
Brock Lesnar
Reports have surfaced that Brock Lesnar is not scheduled to work Hell in a Cell 2014. The WWE champion has caused quite a headache for the front office. Management has to be selective about when they use him because they have to pay him accordingly. The creative department has a dilemma because they know that they cannot keep having Lesnar wrestle John Cena, and there's not a lot of performers on the roster that has enough name value to work with Lesnar.
September 25, 2014
Josh Mathews
Rumors spread rather quickly this week about Josh Mathews joining TNA when pictures of the announcer leaving the company headquarters appeared online. While no official confirmation has been made on the signing, the belief is that a contract has already been reached. While there is still a slight chance that he might be wrestling for the company, the widespread belief is that he is coming in as an announcer.
September 25, 2014
Dixie Carter
Rumors surfaced this week that Dixie Carter was going to make an announcement about the new network that Impact Wrestling would be moving to. However, at the last minute, Country Music Television has emerged as a strong candidate to land the weekly TNA show. The network is under the same corporate umbrella as their current home, Spike. CMT is available in close to 100 million homes.
September 24, 2014
Brock Lesnar
There is some disarray backstage in WWE right now as to what to do with the main event of Hell in a Cell 2014. Some think that John Cena and Brock Lesnar should have a title rematch in the gigantic steel structure. However, there are enough people who are opposed to the idea that management had to scrap all plans involving Lesnar and Paul Heyman on the latest episode of Monday Night Raw.
September 24, 2014
Antonio Cesaro
It appears that WWE might be done with the feud between Miz and Dolph Ziggler, two performers who were largely neglected by the creative department for a good period of time. Management wants to move Ziggler onto another challenge, and the name being tossed around the most is Antonio Cesaro. WWE is still high on Cesaro, even though he has not received a consistent push as of late.
September 23, 2014
Dixie Carter
Rumors are heating up that TNA will be making their long awaited announcement on a new television contract. Dixie Carter has been adamant all along about Impact Wrestling being able to remain on the air, and it looks like her team is about to finalize things. No word yet on which network the deal will be with, but it appears that Spike is not in the picture. WGN and Velocity are two of the rumored networks interested in bringing wrestling on board.
September 23, 2014
Brock Lesnar
Since Night of Champions 2014 took place over the weekend, a lot of fans were expecting Paul Heyman to make an appearance and gloat about how Brock Lesnar is still the WWE champion. However, Heyman was nowhere to be seen on Monday Night Raw. He was backstage at the event last night, but management opted against using him because they could not come up with something for Heyman and Lesnar.
September 23, 2014
Brock Lesnar
While there is a possibility that WWE does a third straight match between John Cena and Brock Lesnar, there are those backstage that are pushing for Cena to be transitioned into a feud with Seth Rollins instead. That's why the story line of Rollins attempting to cash in at Night of Champions 2014 took place. The belief is that this program will help elevate Rollins into the main event scene.
September 22, 2014
Austin Aries
Add Austin Aries to the long list of performers who may be leaving TNA once their contract expires. Reports surfaced recently that he was not one of the names advertised for an upcoming tour of England, and that led to the speculation that the former world heavyweight champion was not going to have his contract renewed by the company because they are still in limbo over a television contract.
September 22, 2014
Cody Rhodes
On Night of Champions 2014, Cody Rhodes and Goldust defeated Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso for the WWE tag team championship. Rumors are floating around that management felt that the twins had grown stale because they ran out of teams to defend the titles again. Plus, Rhodes has really been getting into his Stardust character, so the front office wants to see if the gimmick can pick up further steam with a championship push.
September 22, 2014
Dean Ambrose
By now, everyone knows that Roman Reigns has been hospitalized and is forced to miss Night of Champions 2014. Seth Rollins needs a new opponent. One of the ideas being tossed around is to have Dean Ambrose making a surprise return at the pay per view and continue his feud with Rollins. Ambrose had taken a couple of weeks away from WWE to film a movie, but he finished up this weekend.
September 21, 2014
Gail Kim
With the company still in limbo on a new television contract, whenever a veteran performer has a contract that is expiring, rumors float around that the person will be leaving TNA. Another name to add to the list is Gail Kim. Long viewed as one of the best female performers in the industry, her future is unclear, as her contract expires before the end of the year.
September 21, 2014
