Eva Marie
Just like she was last year, Eva Marie is again a candidate in the Maxim Hot 100, which basically allows fans to vote on which female celebrity they deem to be the most attractive. The WWE diva was nominated last year as well. Eva Marie is the only wrestling related personality that you can vote for, unless you count Maria Menounos.

Eva Marie
Since he has been featured on Total Divas this season, interest in Jonathan Coyle, the husband of WWE star Eva Marie, has grown exponentially. He is a trainer in Orange County, and being the husband of a celebrity should help garner interest in his business. Jonathan also will be appearing in an upcoming issue of GQ magazine as a model.

Mr T
In a rather interesting move, there were minimal Wrestlemania 30 celebrities involved in the pay per view. WWE generally likes having as many famous faces around as possible, in an attempt to generate interest from the mainstream media, but the company opted to focus more on wrestling this year. Mr T was the most featured celebrity on the show this year.

Eva Marie
Now that she is starting to make her name known, thanks to appearances on Total Divas and Monday Night Raw, a lot of people have been looking into the net worth of Eva Marie. While some sites like Celebrity Net Worth have been attempting to draw in those WWE fans to their site, it is much too soon for any of that relevant data about her financial situation to be available.

Hulk Hogan
Celebrity DBI, a website that tracks the name value of celebrities, has Hulk Hogan at 96% popularity, which puts him just below NBA legend Michael Jordan, who is sitting at 98%. His cultural relevance was the reason why he was able to command a huge salary from TNA and why he was able to get Vince McMahon to hand him big checks now.

William Regal
"Surely, to be an expert at my profession, you have to have made at least a proper living out of it and truly understand all its ins and outs. I've spent 30 years making a living out of it, and I don't consider myself an expert. A lot of delusional tosspots seem to know more than me. And while I'm at it, please don't ask me question in wrestling lingo. Unless you're a pro, you come off like a mug. I don't talk to my comedian friends in their professional lingo because I'm not a pro comic or a plumber or a mechanic. While I'm at it, surely you have had to make a living at this at some point to be considered a pro. Now and then, I like to rule up the more intellectually malnourished of you. It's always a great learning tool. Thank you." - William Regal bashing fans

Arn Anderson too, as well." - Sheamus lists the guys that have helped him most backstage

Eddie Edwards
One of the biggest reasons why TNA is pushing the American Wolves on Impact Wrestling is to send a message to people in WWE.
