Sheamus
During a recent interview, Sheamus stated that he was a big comic book fan, and he would absolutely love to play Venom in the upcoming film. That has led to rumors about the former world heavyweight champion actually being in line for the role. That is simply not the case. He was basically expressing his desire. Nothing more than that. Hollywood will more than likely go with an established actor in the movie.

Chris Jericho
Chris Jericho has long been known by closer followers as someone that loves to effectively tease his fan base. He's done so in the past with his returns to WWE, and he's doing so right now by teasing to join the Authority. In separate interviews, Jericho has praised the heel group and brought up the possibility of joining their team. The former world heavyweight champion even stated that he is rooting for the Authority to keep their power.

CM Punk
It looks like CM Punk has found himself a new job, now that it is all but certain that he is not returning to WWE anytime soon. Marvel has announced that the former world heavyweight champion will be writing a story for upcoming issues of Thor, one of their more popular characters. Punk, who has been an avid comic book fan since childhood, has also stated that he would love to write stories for the Punisher character.

Kevin Steen
When the former ROH champion signed with WWE, many were under the impression that management would be giving Kevin Steen a name, one that they could own and trademark. The speculations were correct, and his name moniker is Kevin Owens. The belief is that Steen was the one that came up with the name, as he is a huge fan of Owen Hart. He even named his son after the late high flyer.

Fox wanted Mick Foley to portray Santa Clause in an upcoming episode of their hit series New Girls, but the Hardcore Legend had to turn it down.

John Cena
If you're a big fan of Roman Reigns and want to see WWE continue to push him, then there's some really good news from the merchandise department. His products are the second best selling ones at live events across the country. Management uses that as a big gauge for who they continue to push. John Cena remains the leading seller by a landslide, however.
October 9, 2014
Christian
If you are a big fan of Edge and Christian, then you might want to tune into Monday Night Raw this week. WWE revealed earlier today through Twitter that the two of them have just arrived. A picture was also posted of the former tag team champions getting out of a vehicle. No word yet on where they are, but there is a chance that they could appear on television tonight to promote the Smackdown week.
October 6, 2014
CM Punk
If you're a big fan of Hulk Hogan, then you do not want to miss Monday Night Raw this week. The WWE legend and Jimmy Hart have flown into Chicago for the event. Hogan is definitely expected to make an on screen appearance.

September 29, 2014
John Cena
Some rumors floated around earlier this morning that John Cena was attacked by a fan after Monday Night Raw went off the air. However, those in attendance are telling a different story now. Eyewitnesses say that the fan jumped the rail to embrace Cena. WWE security immediately grabbed him. As they were escorting him out, Cena was informed of what was going on, so he went over there and gave the guy a high five.
September 23, 2014
Ric Flair
Some good news if you're a fan of Ric Flair. He has now been released from a hospital in Georgia after spending ten days there for emergency surgeries. The former world heavyweight champion had an appendicitis attack and a hernia. He is expected to take some time off the road to recover from his wounds, but he should be back on WWE television before the end of the year.

The two names that have been toss around as potential partners are Sami Zayn and the newly signed Kevin Steen.
September 19, 2014
Chris Jericho
If you're a big fan of Chris Jericho, then definitely check out Night of Champions 2014, as that will be the last time that we see him in WWE for quite some time.

Hogan has a small role in the movie, but the company is expected to promote him heavily to draw in their fan base.
August 21, 2014
Evan Bourne
The belief within the industry is that Evan Bourne is hoping to make a return to WWE some day. He recently did a shoot interview, but the video was rather tame. He did not reveal too many secrets, and he did not show a ton of animosity towards the company. If Bourne can show that he can stay sober and injury free, then WWE might be willing to give him another chance since he did have a little bit of a fan base.
August 15, 2014
Cody Rhodes
Reports are surfacing that WWE will be throwing a last minute fatal four way match together at Summerslam 2014, where Cody Rhodes, Goldust, Jimmy Uso, Jey Uso, Luke Harper, Erick Rowan, Curtis Axel and Ryback will all be vying for the tag titles. Management does not view this division to be a priority at this time, even though fan interest has grown.
August 7, 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.
August 6, 2014
Colt Cabana
Got some bad news if you're a fan of the Colt Cabana podcast. The former WWE star revealed that his web server has been hacked by malicious bots.

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
February 22, 2014
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. A lot of them, especially William Regal, were said to be upset that the two were not given contract offers. By pushing Davey Richards and Eddie Edwards, Dixie Carter can let performers know that her company could be a viable place of employment for others.
February 16, 2014
