AJ Lee
When you're a top star for WWE, you lose a good amount of privacy. Fans want in on your private life. Having done the job for years, CM Punk was already well aware of this.

He even posted a message on Twitter about the matter.

There was a little bit of a buzz earlier in the week when Ryback posted a message about taking time off from WWE.

Kevin Steen
After finishing off his commitments, Kevin Steen has now officially reported for duty with WWE. The former ROH champion posted on Twitter that it was his first day at the WWE Performance Center.

Austin Aries
Back in July, Austin Aries decided to go silent on Twitter because he was protesting the decision by TNA to allow fans to vote on the return of the six sided ring.

Aries is even promoting Impact Wrestling on there, so it looks like he's back on good terms with the company.

Big E Langston
The speculation right now is that the stable of Xavier Woods, Kofi Kingston and Big E Langston has been disbanded since WWE has not been utilizing them much on television. Those rumors appear to be true as Woods addressed those rumors through his Twitter account. He stated that he is not currently involved in a group. Woods also mentioned that he would much rather use intelligence as a weapon in a stable as opposed to race.
August 15, 2014

August 11, 2014
Alberto Del Rio
When reports initially surfaced that Alberto Del Rio was given a release from WWE, a lot of fans sided with the company.

August 9, 2014
Randy Orton
It looks like Randy Orton still has a bit of the acting bug. The WWE star informed his fan through Twitter that he was working on a deal to star in another movie. Orton also revealed that they were in the early stages, so he cannot provide much details at the moment. Once the film starts production, it is expected that the former world heavyweight champion will miss some television time for WWE.

Sheamus
There are some interesting rumors floating around right now that Sheamus could be cast to portray Darth Vader in the upcoming Star Wars movie. A publication in Ireland is even running with the story.

Vince Russo
Through Twitter, Vince Russo revealed that he was completely done with TNA now. He stated that the company had asked him to take a break, but he opted to leave instead.

July 30, 2014

July 29, 2014

July 25, 2014
Jim Cornette
Anyone that has heard Jim Cornette speak over the last decade should already know that he absolutely hates Vince Russo. The former WWE manager routinely sways regular conversations into diatribes against Russo. Through Twitter, Russo offered to make pace with Cornette.

July 4, 2014
CM Punk
In a very subtle manner, CM Punk took a jab at WWE for their recent handling of the Emma situation. When she was released, former writer Seth Mates posted a message on Twitter about the company being hypocritical and holding double standards. Punk added that post as a favorite on his account. The fact that Punk would do that shows that he still harbors some resentment towards WWE.
July 3, 2014
Adam Rose
Those that watched Monday Night Raw this week saw an in show commercial being aired for Twisted Tea that featured Santino Marella and Adam Rose. Several of the WWE stars also posted messages on Twitter about the adult beverage. The move is viewed as being quite interesting because the company has spent years shifting their attention towards a younger audience. This product does not necessarily fit that demographic.
July 1, 2014
CM Punk
When he decided to walk away from WWE, CM Punk went on a bit of a social media sabbatical. He recently started posting updates on Twitter again, but it's mostly been about hockey.

Earlier in the year, rumors sparked that Jonathan Coachman was going to be returning to WWE to work on some projects with the company.

Velvet Sky
There are rumors floating around right now that Velvet Sky is going to be leaving TNA soon. However, the speculations stem from an overreaction to something that might really be insignificant. The Knockout changed her profile biography on Twitter. She removed TNA from there and replaced it with other words, as there is a word limit set on the biography. As of right now, her departure from the company is far from confirmed.

July 31, 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
Zack Ryder
A status update on Twitter from Zack Ryder, informing fans that WWE is no longer selling any of his merchandise. Rumors have been circulating that the company wants to downplay his popularity, and this revelation lends credibility to those speculations. The fact that Ryder actually pointed it out in public is a sign that he could be really frustrated with his situation in WWE.
July 1, 2014
Austin Aries
Since he was rather upset that TNA was allowing fans to choose the type of ring that the performers had to work in, Austin Aries aired his frustrations through Twitter. Now that the six sided ring has been officially brought back, Aries has decided to leave the social media site for the time being. The move is being done out of protest, but there's a good chance that the former TNA champion will be tweeting again some day.
June 25, 2014

This appears to be a misunderstanding as Sonnen is a big fan of wrestling and has used several quotes over the years.
June 22, 2014
Alex Riley
A peculiar thing happened on Twitter recently. John Cena praised Alex Riley for his work on commentary when the latter made a reference to the Major League movie. While this would normally seem like something minor, it actually comes as a shock to those that believe the rumors that Cena was the reason why Riley lost his push. There reportedly was backstage heat between the two.

Evan Bourne

Hawkins posted this response to Henry.
June 12, 2014

June 9, 2014
Mick Foley
A status update on Twitter from Mick Foley, where he stated that TNA wished him a happy birthday while WWE has yet do so.

June 8, 2014
Warlord

When Barbarian and Warlord left the NWA while in the midst of a high profile feud against the Road Warriors, a lot of people were puzzled. It was later discovered that the Powers of Pain had backstage heat with the company because they did not want to work a series of scaffold matches.

January 29, 2014

In 1986, the Warlord started working out at a new gym when he was approached by the owner, better known to wrestling fans as Road Warrior Animal, about a possible career change. Animal sent him to Dusty Rhodes, and a contract with the NWA shortly followed.

January 16, 2014
Chris Jericho
Where there's smoke, there's usually fire. Rumors have persisted for quite some time now that there is still backstage heat towards Jim Ross in WWE. There is some new evidence to support that claim. Ross recently revealed that the company has not approved any of their performers to be a guest on his podcast show, where Steve Austin and Chris Jericho have had plenty of WWE personnel, including Triple H himself, doing interviews for them.
September 1, 2014
AJ Styles

However, during a recent interview, the former world heavyweight champion brushed off the idea, stating that it was not the right time. Styles also noted that the company was going through some budget cuts as of late, so there is little chance that WWE would match what he was making in New Japan at the moment.
September 1, 2014
Batista
WWE decisions are sometimes garbage, according to Batista. During a recent podcast interview with Chris Jericho, the former world heavyweight champion stated that he was disgusted by how the creative department utilized Daniel Bryan after he was put over at Wrestlemania 30. Batista felt that Bryan should have been allowed to sell the injuries from the previous night because it would have added to his lovable underdog character.
August 31, 2014
Jake Roberts
Rumors are floating around that Jake Roberts is in a coma. A large reason for that is because his lawyer mentioned that he was in a "coma like state", and people misconstrued that for the WWE legend being in an actual coma. Kizarny also took to Facebook to further explain the situation. He stated that Roberts is heavily sedated because the procedure to combat pneumonia is pretty painful. Kizarny also reiterated that Roberts was not in a coma.
August 31, 2014
Hulk Hogan
As a few people are already aware, Hulk Hogan has been generating some hype recently by teasing fans that he wants to make a return to the WWE ring for one final match. The former world heavyweight champion has teased that he wants to work against John Cena. Well, some fuel has been added to that fire, as Cena himself is now starting to tease the match as well.

August 30, 2014
Naomi Knight
Not a whole lot of fans are aware of this, but Naomi Knight has been missing in action for WWE for a couple of weeks now.

August 30, 2014

August 30, 2014
Bully Ray
Reports surfaced not too long ago that Bully Ray was leaving TNA, as his contract was set to expire and a new deal could not be reached between the two sides. Apparently, he is going to remain on good terms with management, as the former world heavyweight champion is still being advertised for Bound For Glory 2014. Team 3D is scheduled to be inducted into the hall of fame that evening, but it would not come as a shock if Bully ended up working a match on the pay per view.
August 30, 2014
Batista
We have ourselves another sign that Batista might be putting WWE in his rear view mirror. During a podcast interview with Chris Jericho, the former world heavyweight champion openly bashed the method in which the company handled his return.

August 29, 2014
Jake Roberts
In a sign of just how popular and mainstream Jake Roberts was during the 1980s, several media outlets provided coverage of the WWE legend being sent to the hospital this week. TMZ does a good job of covering wrestling, so they were on the ball with the Roberts story. Huffington Post and USA Today, which does not feature much about the industry, even covered the story.
August 29, 2014

Steve Austin
There's been another casualty in WWE, thanks to the company losing millions of dollars this year. Tough Enough has been taken off of life support and has now been officially scrapped.

However, after severely reducing the available budget for Tough Enough, officials decided that it would not work out with the limited amount of funding.
August 28, 2014
Daniel Bryan
It looks like Daniel Bryan will not be joining WWE in Europe after all. The company has decided to pull advertisement featuring the former world heavyweight champion from upcoming live events in Europe.

However, they have changed their minds and are allowing Bryan to remain at home and focus on recover.

August 28, 2014
Ryback
When word broke that Ryback was injured, there were some reports of skepticism from WWE officials that there really was no injury. However, the legitimacy of his health has been proven, as Ryback has posted a video of himself in the hospital. He clearly did go under the knife. It is being said that Ryback has worked with strained groins and hernias for the last year.
August 28, 2014
Mick Foley
Considering the amount of pain that he withstood for the sake of entertaining fans over the years, it is a bit surprising that Mick Foley did not spend more time on the sidelines. He has retired from WWE now, but an injury is preventing him from working. Back issues have prompted the former world heavyweight champion to cancel an upcoming appearance in Denver. No word yet on whether or not it will be rescheduled.
August 27, 2014
Batista
The value of the WWE audience has taken yet another hit. There is already a good amount of advertisers who are avoiding the company because they do not feel that the demographics is desirable. Reports are now surfacing that Marvel purposely declined to advertise their Guardians of the Galaxy movie to the WWE audience, even though Batista could have drawn in some of the fans to the film. Since the studio was not interested, WWE opted to avoid promoting the movie, even though it could have benefited them internally.
August 27, 2014
Daniel Bryan
With so much speculation in the air on his condition, it looks like Daniel Bryan will be making a return to WWE in November. Unfortunately, though, he will not be wrestling when he does come back. Management has advertised Bryan to be at the live events that the company is hosting in Europe later on this year. The feeling is that WWE needs all the star power that they can get to draw in the audience.
August 26, 2014
Steve Austin
Life after professional wrestling continues to be great for Steve Austin. He recently revealed that the studios have renewed Redneck Island for a fourth season and have decided to give the Broken Skull Challenge a second one.
