After WCW folded, Buff Bagwell was one of the guys whose contract was picked up by WWE. His stint there did not go well. Things apparently went downhill whenever Bagwell was involved in a backstage altercation with Shane Helms. Bagwell required 20 stitches from the fight and was sent home. When he called Jim Ross back, Bagwell felt that he received the cold shoulders, so he blames Ross for his failure in the company.

When he worked his Wrestlemania match against Triple H, Sting made a request to management. He wanted Charles Robinson, whom he was very familiar with from their time together in WCW, to be the referee. WWE gladly obliged. It is interesting to note that when he worked his title match at Night of Champions against Seth Rollins, Robinson was not the referee for the match.

Initially, the belief was that we would not see Sting again until Wrestlemania rolls around, especially since he suffered some injuries while working a title match against Seth Rollins. Rumors are now floating around that the legendary WCW star might be brought in for the Royal Rumble. WWE is especially concerned with drastically declining numbers, so his presence at the pay per view might be of some assistance.

During a podcast interview, Molly Holly discussed the hall of fame. She stated that WWE invited her to be in the crowd when Randy Savage was inducted because she was a member of his entourage in WCW. When asked about a possible induction for herself, she humbly stated that she probably does not belong in there. Molly feels that she was a glorified enhancement talent. She would accept an induction, however.
