JoJo Offerman
In WWE, sometimes a good personality can help to combat backstage politics. JoJo Offerman appears to be doing that right now, as it has been rumored that management has been praising her for maintaining a good attitude and continuing to work hard down in developmental. Some felt that she would be resentful towards WWE for removing her from the main roster and from the Total Divas cast.
May 26, 2014
Carlito
Those hoping to see Carlito making his return to the company some day are going to be quite disappointed, as it seems like he has very little interest in returning to WWE. The former US champion has been booked rather frequently on the independent wrestling circuit, and he reportedly is not interested in returning to the backstage politics that takes place in WWE.
February 8, 2014
Vickie Guerrero
Earlier in the year, Vickie Guerrero attempted to leave WWE, so that she can focus on the next chapter of her life. Even though she has not been featured in a big role over the last year, management convinced her to stick around for a bit. She agreed, but has repeatedly told management of her desires to move on. It looks like WWE is finally agreeing to allow her to walk away.

Vickie Guerrero
There are rumors floating around right now that Shaul Guerrero was released by WWE because the company wanted to punish her because her mother is leaving soon. Vickie Guerrero has been going to school and focusing on other business ventures. Some are saying that WWE does not want to keep Shaul around if Vickie is not going to be a part of the company.

Vickie Guerrero
Since she is now focusing on her education, new career and business, there is backstage heat towards Vickie Guerrero from a couple of people backstage in WWE. It has become apparent that she plans on leaving the company after she graduates from college, so management has decided not to push her much on television from here on out.
February 22, 2014
Vickie Guerrero
The belief is that Vickie Guerrero will leave WWE in the near future, quite possibly around the time that she graduates from college and receives her medical administration degree. The feeling is that her character has already reached its peak and that the widow of Eddie Guerrero simply wants to stop being on the road every single week of the year.

Bob Holly
"They try to make that hall of fame leigtimate, but if you'll notice, to me, it's politically driven. A dead giveaway is Hunter wanting all of his little buddies, his little circle first. He's taken care of all of them." - Bob Holly suggesting that backstage politics plays a big part in the WWE Hall of Fame
May 19, 2014
Brock Lesnar
"Here's a guy that has a huge ego. He has a hard time with putting anybody over and let alone outside the business when someone like Brock Lesnar would have to hurt him. His ego wouldn't let him walk around in a sling. He wants people to know it's entertainment unless he's the one doing it then he wants you to walk around in a leg cast. This is what I see the problem is and I've been pretty critical about it. You've got somebody in that position that's got too big of an ego to run a company like that. Triple H goes to extreme lengths to look good, to be big and cut and make sure he's on the cover of the muscle magazine and make sure he's in fitness things. He's the guy who's putting himself in the forefront. For anybody to run a company like the WWE, you can't be that guy. You've got too much talent out there for you to put yourself out there in front of them." - Ken Shamrock bashing HHH for backstage politics
April 28, 2014
Lacey Von Erich
"If you never want to have a family or a wife or time to yourself, and you like being verbally and mentally abused, then you should [get into wrestling]. I say go for it. [That abuse comes more from] the locker room. Definitely the locker room. TNA is very different than WWE. WWE was very political. I wasn't in there yet. They were like, 'You're a Von Erich. You better be amazing at wrestling,' and things like that. And I wasn't. I'm more of an actress than I am a wrestler. I'd rather play a character than get hurt on the mat. That's what I'm better at. I'm better at acting. That's what I wanted to do. Vince called me. He's the one that got me into this. He's the one asked me, 'Do you want to be a wrestler? Try to be a Diva?' He brought me out and and I signed the contract that night and went into training. I wasn't expecting it to come as much. It really blew up and they expected so much of me, but then TNA called and they really embraced me as like a family member." - Lacey Von Erich talking about backstage politics in WWE
April 22, 2014
JBL
"There is a lot of truth to that, absolutely. There were guys that came there from other organizations that perhaps they thought they should just skip everybody else and skip right to the top and have things right away the way they wanted. I mean, hey, there are rules and things that you have to abide by as far as this business goes. and you have to respect those. But, when you don't respect those, then hey, we have got a problem. So, yes, we had a lot of guys who came in with that attitude, and John and I would have to be called upon to let them know 'hey, that is not how it works here'." - Ron Simmons on how he and JBL handled backstage politics in WWE
April 1, 2014
Kofi Kingston
"People always say, 'Oh, there haven't been many black champions,' but on the other hand, there are a whole lot of white people that never won a belt either. These days, I think it's less of a racial thing. I honestly believe that if you are able to entertain and interact with the crowd, it doesn't matter what ethnicity you may be. WWE will reward you." - Kofi Kingston discusses racism and backstage politics
March 26, 2014
Davey Richards
"We're not talking. We're not on good terms. I have no respect for them whatsoever. I strongly dislike management there like with the exception of Jeff Jones who is a great guy. But the booker (Hunter Johnson) is completely inadequate at his job and he got his job more for being spineless than being talented. And the owner (Joe Koff) is even worse, he could care less about wrestling. He just wants to do television. To me, it's just not something I agree with but I'm not there anymore and they do their own thing. And for the talent and the fans I wish them nothing but the best of luck. That company is in business not because of stellar booking and stellar management. They're in business still because they'they're spineless. The talent there is phenomenal. They're top notch and great. But the management from the booker to the owner it's definitely shut up and do what you're told and drink the Kool-aid. I made a joke when I was there I called it Jim Jones wrestling. Just shut up and drink the Kool-aid and do your job. In private, people are going this sucks this sucks this sucks and I'm the one who came out and said this is terrible. I worked for that company and gave them everything I had for seven years. I think I earned my right to an opinion. Once that got out, it was like you're going against the stream? You're not here to have an opinion, just shut up and do your job and get your paycheck. I'm sure you can find someone else to do that for a lot less money than what you're paying me so I'm just going to go about my way. Best decision I ever made and I have no desire to go back, ever." - Davey Richards talks about the backstage politics in ROH
March 8, 2014
John Cena
"He's a workhorse. He does incredible things for the company and he busts his butt. Outside the ring, I can't stand the guy. He's not a nice guy, he holds talent down. He steals ideas. He's a prick." - Tyler Reks discusses backstage politics with John Cena when he was in WWE
February 26, 2014
Kamala
"Vince McMahon has certain people that he will pay. If you get along with Vince, do him sexual favors, you'll get along good with him. But if you just (do your job and) mind your own business, then he doesn't like you for some reason. There was a lot of men with men in those days and even men with boys. I know a lot of guys that (failed drug tests) and it was documented that they passed, and I know what they did." - Kamala on backstage politics in WWE
February 23, 2014
Dusty Rhodes
"It was strictly politics. Dusty Rhodes was the booker and he was against it. You know, what are you going to do. He didn't book me anywhere during the whole time I had the belt until the rematch because Dusty Rhodes was a very, very jealous guy when it came to guys getting over. He was the wrong guy to be a booker. He is the one who put Jim Crockett out of business. He is the reason Jim Crockett had to sell and was losing his butt. It was the same thing with the Rock and Roll Express. He couldn't stand the Rock and Roll Express getting over like rock stars. I mean, girls would go crazy. They had to have some protection for the Rock and Roll Express, the girls would attack them, just like rock stars, it was unbelievable." - Ronnie Garvin discusses backstage politics and Dusty Rhodes
February 12, 2014
Linda McMahon
While she has been relatively quiet as of late, Linda McMahon is still making moves in the world of politics. The former WWE CEO is being honored this month with the Prescott Bush Award, which is viewed as the highest honor that is bestowed by the Connecticut Republican Party. Despite the launch of the WWE Network, Linda is still keeping her distance from the company.
February 10, 2014
Daniel Bryan

"Hey WWE I’m not trying to be rude but the crowd seems to really want Daniel Bryan. Juuuuuuust MAFAKIN Saying!! Geez. Sadly WWE is still run by 'Muscle Marks.' It is what it is folks."

- Shane Helms on backstage politics in WWE

January 27, 2014
Armando Estrada

"You're not allowed to get over in WWE unless they want you to. If you do, you can and will be punished. Has happened to many over the years."

- Armando Estrada on backstage politics in WWE

January 26, 2014
Bret Hart

"Toronto deserves Rob Ford, they put him in office. Toronto deserves everything it gets. Up in Calgary we've got a more prestigious mayor [Naheed Nenshi]. I think we've got the best mayor in North America."

December 7, 2013
Vickie Guerrero
When he announced his sudden decision to retire, Santino Marella teased WWE fans that he might be taking over as the new general manager of Monday Night Raw and Smackdown. While the role is vacant due to the departure of Vickie Guerrero from the company, there has been no confirmation of what Marella is claiming. The belief is that he was simply teasing the audience at this point.
July 7, 2014
Vickie Guerrero
Anyone that follows professional wrestling closely, knows that WWE performers spend a ridiculous amount of time on the road for the company. Vickie Guerrero became one of the latest people to grow weary of that lifestyle and requested her release from her contract. Now that she is free of that hectic obligation, the former WWE diva is now on vacation in Hawaii.
July 6, 2014
Eddie Guerrero
Hector Guerrero, who is the older brother of the late Eddie Guerrero, is continuing his feud against Vickie Guerrero. He posted a message on Facebook to let fans know once again that Vickie sold out on the family after Eddie passed away. He also revealed that Vickie does not bother to keep in touch with Eddie's mother, either. Vickie has not responded with her side of the story yet.
June 30, 2014
Vickie Guerrero
Since she was given a respectable departure from the company, the belief is that Vickie Guerrero is highly regarded by WWE management. The speculation has even more credibility now that the company is airing a special tribute show for her on the WWE Network. The show is basically a highlight reel of her best performances during her longer than expected tenure with the company.
June 29, 2014
Eddie Guerrero
While Eddie Guerrero and Vickie Guerrero both became big stars for WWE, their daughter Shaul Guerrero was simply not able to follow in their footsteps. After being released twice from the company's developmental program, she has decided to take a different career path. Shaul has signed up for veterinarian school and has reportedly started attending classes for that.
June 16, 2014
Vickie Guerrero
While she did not leave the company after Wrestlemania 30 like rumored, Vickie Guerrero still intends on moving on from WWE at some point in time.

Vickie Guerrero

April 16, 2014
Vickie Guerrero
During Wrestlemania 30, rumors spread that Vickie Guerrero was finishing up her tenure with WWE and moving on to a different chapter in her life. However, it appears that she might have had a change of heart, as the former on screen general manager posted a message on Twitter, stating that she will be on Monday Night Raw and Smackdown this week.
April 12, 2014
Vickie Guerrero
Wrestlemania 30 and perhaps the next Monday Night Raw will be the last hurrah for Vickie Guerrero, as she is finishing up her tenure with WWE this weekend. The former on screen general manager has been focused on college over the past year, and she has also been trying to get a few business ventures up and running as well.
April 6, 2014
Rick Victor
Since management wanted to test out the developmental wrestlers to see if they were ready to be called up to the main roster, the Ascension, a tag team consisting of Conor OBrian and Rick Victor, were given a match against Diego and Fernando at the big live event in New York City this weekend. WWE even paired Vickie Guerrero up with them. Unfortunately, though, the crowd was silent and indifferent towards the duo, thus hurting their chances of being promoted.
March 9, 2014
Vickie Guerrero
Despite not having a big role on Monday Night Raw and Smackdown, Vickie Guerrero is still on the road for the company. Along with several other performers who are not frequently used, she is present backstage at all the television taping. WWE likes having people around in case they change up the story line at the last minute.
March 5, 2014
Jim Ross
Over the weekend, several wrestlers, including Chris Jericho, Howar Finkel, Jim Ross, MVP, Diamond Dallas Page, Mason Ryan, Chavo Guerrero, Michelle McCool, Vickie Guerrero, JBL and others, noted the passing of Frank Bullock, a WWE employee who did audio for the company. He had been battling cancer before his death.

Tamina Snuka

It was a rough night for Vickie Guerrero and Tamina Snuka. The two traveling buddies went three hours in the opposite direction that they were supposed to be going, thanks to a mistake with their navigational system. Add in some snow, and the two WWE stars did not make it to their destination until 6am.

Vickie Guerrero

"And then Edge I will always respect. He showed me psychology, how to work in the ring, helped with my promos, and how to work with the cameras.Visit Wrestling Inc. He took me under his wing and made me feel like I was his partner. He really built my confidence and made me believe that whatever I did out there would be great. He really believed in me and I think that's why we got to stay together for so long."

November 20, 2013
Maryse Ouellet
Michelle McCool and Layla El, collectively known as LayCool, were victorious in their tag team match against Gail Kim and Maryse Ouellet, two divas who did not get along with one another, at Elimination Chamber 2010. The match was made by Vickie Guerrero in the story line.
February 21, 2010
Big E Langston
An interesting idea being floated around in WWE has Titus ONeil joining the stable that consists of Xavier Woods, Kofi Kingston and Big E Langston. Management really likes ONeil, as evident by the fact that he routinely gets sent out on public appearances for the company, but they do not believe that he can be pushed as a singles performer. Putting him in a stable helps to alleviate some of those concerns.
July 28, 2014
Bray Wyatt
Rumors are floating around right now that Chris Jericho is done with WWE after he finishes up his feud with Bray Wyatt. The return was designed to be a short term thing, as the former undisputed champion still has other business ventures that he wants to focus on. There are talks that Jericho could be convinced to stick around in WWE a bit longer if an interesting program can be created for him.
July 28, 2014
Cameron
It looks like WWE will be utilizing the relationship between Cameron and her boyfriend a bit more during the next season of Total Divas. The belief is that something drastic will happen, where the couple will either break up or do a wedding. The heel turn and split from Naomi Knight was designed to put more attention into her character on the reality television show next season.
July 28, 2014
Steve Austin
Earlier in the month, Steve Austin made a comment about WWE being too scripted for his taste. While those comments would surely bring backstage heat on one of their mid card performers, it is being said that there is absolutely no heat towards Austin, as management knows that they might need him for business down the line.
July 28, 2014
Damien Sandow
Since he has shown a willingness to not only do what is asked of him but to actually put in great effort in doing so, Damien Sandow has been earning a good amount of praise backstage by his peers in WWE. They are impressed by the fact that he has not grown frustrated with the new gimmick. Unfortunately for Sandow, though, management does not feel that he deserves a real push at the moment.
July 28, 2014
Miz
There are still plans being discussed backstage in WWE to unify the United States Heavyweight Championship and the Intercontinental Championship in the near future. If management decides to go through with it, then Miz is the more likely candidate to hold the unified belt because he has a lot more momentum than Sheamus at this point in time.
July 28, 2014
Alexander Rusev
Alexander Rusev is posing a considerable problem for the WWE creative department nowadays. The staff was instructed to push him up the ladder, but they are now running out of options. His program with Jack Swagger has either ended or will end soon. Rusev cannot be placed into a program with someone lower on the card, and it's too soon for him to work against John Cena. Sheamus has been named as a possible opponent to help Rusev kill time.
July 27, 2014
Justin Gabriel
While he is a reliable performer who does not cause trouble backstage, Justin Gabriel was one of the candidates to be on the receiving end of a release from WWE when the company was doing budget cuts. He apparently has survived the cuts and will remain with the company for the time being. It is interesting to note that Gabriel has not been utilized on Monday Night Raw since last September.
July 27, 2014
Alex Riley
Since WWE was doing budget cuts left and right in order to reduce the millions of dollars that they're losing this year, several names were mentioned as possible candidates for a release. Alex Riley was once rumored to be someone on the chopping board, but it looks like the commentator has made the cut. Unless WWE decides to get rid of the kickoff shows, Riley should remain with the company.
July 26, 2014
Brock Lesnar
Rumors are swirling that the Undertaker was not supposed to have lost to Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania 30, thanks to some comments made by former WWE stars. Some are saying that he did not kick out of the pin attempt because he was legitimately knocked out from the move. Since the referees are instructed to go through with the count, there is a possibility that it may be true.
July 26, 2014
Antonio Cesaro
Rumors are floating around right now that WWE officials have banned Antonio Cesaro from utilizing his giant swing move. The belief is that the company does not want him to accumulate more fan support because the move has proven to be massively popular. Management is said to be holding off on his face turn and big push because they want to focus on Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns first.
July 26, 2014
Big E Langston
There are those backstage in WWE that are skeptical of the idea of doing a heel turn for Kofi Kingston, who has long been regarded as the ultimate baby face. Since he does a lot of the charity work for the company, some are afraid that it will affect that aspect of his job as well. There are rumors floating around that WWE does not have finalized plans for the new stable that also consists of Xavier Woods and Big E Langston.
July 26, 2014
Josh Mathews
Josh Mathews might not be out of a job for too long. Rumors are floating around that TNA is very close to signing him to a contract. When he was backstage at Impact Wrestling, he did not seem like a typical visitor, as management was introducing him to people backstage. The belief is that he would be a valuable asset since he understands a lot about the production in WWE.
July 25, 2014
Rey Mysterio
A couple of months ago, Rey Mysterio was under the belief that his tenure with WWE was over when his contract expired. However, the company enacted a clause in the deal that enabled them to extend the partnership because the masked performer missed quite a bit of dates. Apparently, he is not too happy about that, as reports have surfaced that Mysterio has stopped cashing his checks in what seems to be an attempt to get out of the deal.
July 24, 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
John Cena
A lot of people backstage in WWE have been joking around lately about John Cena possibly being the next guy to leave the company to pursue a career in Hollywood. He's got a couple of parts coming up that might help him gain the attention of the studios. There are also talks that Cena is a lot more injured than he lets on, so an acting career might seem like a better option nowadays.
July 23, 2014
Curtis Axel
Rumors are floating around that WWE is going to be splitting up Curtis Axel and Ryback very soon. Since neither guy has a ton of momentum right now, it does not appear that the move is being done to give them a push. WWE views Axel as just a guy on the roster nowadays, and Ryback has been in the doghouse with management for quite some time now.
July 23, 2014
Prince Devitt
Over the last couple of months, there have been plenty of rumors in regards to WWE signing international star Prince Devitt to a contract. Things heated up even more when he left New Japan. Things died down a bit when no announcement was made, but it looks like the rumor mills are heating up again. Reports are surfacing that the deal has now been reached, and he should be showing up to developmental soon.
July 23, 2014
Brie Bella
One of the ideas being floated around backstage in WWE is to turn Nikki Bella into a heel. The story would be that Stephanie McMahon finally gets to her by getting Nikki to believe that Brie Bella has left her hanging. Nikki would grow tired of being abused by the Authority, so she ends up doing a heel turn against her sister. The story would more than likely be featured on Total Divas as well.
July 22, 2014
Alexander Rusev
Rumors are floating around right now that WWE has decided to drop the story line involving Zeb Colter, Jack Swagger, Alexander Rusev and Lana. The belief is that the company changed their minds after seeing the backlash from the media and the fans over the controversial promo that Lana cut at the pay per view. WWE did not let her do much talking on Monday Night Raw this week.
July 22, 2014
