"People have to remember that an alcoholic and a drug addict can be known to tell a lie or two. I certainly did my share of it, with lashing out and was pretty ugly about it. For Vince McMahon to forgive and forget, maybe he hasn't forgotten, but at least he's forgiven, and to invite me into the WWE Hall of Fame, it's going to be an awesome, awesome moment." - Jake Roberts on his relationship with Vince McMahon

"There's nothing unresolved. My relationship with WWE is exactly what we want it to be. I'm staying very busy and doing something for WWE Network on an ongoing basis would be challenging. They've moved on and so have I with no regrets." - Jim Ross on his backstage heat with Vince McMahon and WWE

Rosa Mendes
Despite not being a major topic of conversation among the internet wrestling community, the season premier of Total Divas did really well this week. They managed to draw in over a million viewers. If the show can manage to maintain that type of number, then there's a very good chance that the relationship between WWE and E! will continue. Rosa Mendes was added to the cast this year, so a new diva could be added if another season were to follow.
September 9, 2014
Rey Mysterio
The relationship between WWE and Rey Mysterio might be worse than what a lot of us already thought. Reports have surfaced that the company and the popular masked performer are not communicating with one another nowadays.

Apparently, WWE is letting that issue slide for the time being, as lawyers have yet to get involved.
August 28, 2014
AJ Styles
While the negotiation continues between the two sides, the belief is that Bully Ray and TNA are far apart on the financial terms. Management wants to keep their former world heavyweight champion around because he is quite the asset to the roster. However, they are limited in what they can pay him, much like how they had to let AJ Styles leave. Since neither side is willing to budge, it looks like the relationship could be over soon.
August 21, 2014

August 9, 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.

Donnelly is attempting to gain $250,000 from the lawsuit.
July 9, 2014
Dolph Ziggler
While a lot of fans are hoping to see WWE giving Dolph Ziggler a push again, the on screen relationship between he and Summer Rae is more about the diva than the former world heavyweight champion. Management needed someone to pair her up with, so that she can continue her feud against Fandango and Layla El. WWE still wants to give her a nice push heading into the next season of Total Divas.
July 6, 2014
Dixie Carter
When Seiya Sanada first joined TNA, the belief was that he was only temporarily here in the United States to boost his credibility with fans in Japan.

A joint contract between the former X division champion, Great Muta and Dixie Carter is being discussed that will keep Sanada in the US a bit longer.
July 4, 2014
Dolph Ziggler

Bully Ray
Rumors are heavily floating around right now that TNA and House of Hardcore are working together. When Tommy Dreamer cut what seemed to be a shoot interview about Dixie Carter pulling Bully Ray from his show, some felt that it was out of character for Dreamer to do that, as he is viewed as one of the more respectful guys in the industry. Plus, Dreamer himself has a working relationship with TNA already, so it would not be hard to fathom that he would align his company with Carter.
June 8, 2014
Bully Ray
Earlier this week, it was discovered that Bully Ray had been pulled from the House of Hardcore event that Tommy Dreamer was promoting. It has now been revealed that TNA pulled Bully Ray, so that he can go represent the company at a Spike TV television event. Since contract negotiations on a new television deal are ongoing, TNA wanted to maintain a good working relationship with Spike TV, and Bully Ray is one of their best representatives.
June 8, 2014
Bully Ray
An interesting situation took place at the House of Hardcore show in New York tonight. Tommy Dreamer bashed Dixie Carter for pulling Bully Ray from his show at the last minute. He stated that the TNA president pulled Bully to appear on a promotional event for Impact Wrestling. Dreamer has a working relationship with Carter, so there are rumors that this was simply a story line to generate interest in both promotions.
June 6, 2014
Ashley Flair
In a sign that she should be called up to the main roster in the near future, Ashley Flair has been given the WWE NXT Women's Championship. She defeated Natalya Neidhart to capture the belt. Management has long praised her athletic ability, and with her father, Ric Flair, coming back to Monday Night Raw soon, WWE could be looking to capitalize on that relationship.

Brutus Magnus
"Why do internet fans and gossip writers always have to find an ulterior motive for decisions? It baffles and frankly irritates the hell out of me that these people always have to assume the worst, and report it as fact. More needs to be done in both companies to combat internal sources talking to these parasites. I was asked by a promoter recently if I lost the title because there was heat between me and John Gaburick, our Executive VP of Talent and Creative. Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, 'Big' and I are able to freely express ourselves to one another, which means we get to speaks our minds properly, and we've had that relationship since he first arrived in TNA. "Furthermore, how ridiculous is that notion? Do you think if there was heat, that he would have put the title on me in the first place. On average, numbers went across the board while I had the strap. The job of the heel champion is to get the babyfaces over, and leave the place in a better state than he found it. Mission accomplished. "I can't wait to sink my teeth into my next chapter." - Brutus Magnus addressing rumors that he has backstage heat in TNA

Jim Ross
"It's hard if you're quantifying raw numbers to say anyone was more popular at their zenith than Stone Cold Steve Austin. No one sold more merchandise, tickets or pay per view than Steve. The thing with Junkyard Dog was that he was the first African American number one baby face in a major territory. For black fans especially, he was such a groundbreaking force. There was a unique emotional relationship that JYD had with his audience. He gave a whole race their guy." - Jim Ross describes Junkyard Dog and his place in wrestling history

Vince McMahon
Fans were a bit puzzled in regards to how Monday Night Raw was booked this week. John Cena kept telling fans that Paul Heyman only had until halftime to produce Brock Lesnar before an attack would happen. The incident took place closer to the two hour mark than halfway through the show.

Vince McMahon

Once the deal goes through, he will more than likely be prohibited from being involved with WWE.
