Rey Mysterio
While his days as a top level performer are certainly behind him now, WWE is hoping to sign Rey Mysterio to a contract extension that will see him in a new role. He would work extremely limited dates as an in ring performer and travel extensively to other countries to act as a brand ambassador. The current contract expires at the end of April.

Jinder Mahal
While fans are under the impression that professional wrestlers are all getting rich, that simply is not the case, especially for a lower level performer like Jinder Mahal. The 3MB member is currently being paid $75,000 a year by WWE in downside guarantees. That salary seems like a lot, but Mahal has to pay for his own travel expenses every week.
March 26, 2014
Kofi Kingston
While he is not a main event performer in WWE, Kofi Kingston draws in a pretty good salary. His downside guarantee is $254,200 a year. Even though he does have to pay for his own travel expenses, Kingston does get thrown into a couple of pay per view events per year, which gives his annual salary a nice boost from the PPV bonuses.

Chavo Guerrero
Since wrestlers travel a ridiculous amount of miles every single year, coincidental meetings at airports take place rather frequently. The latest one has Chavo Guerrero and Sean Waltman bumping into one another at the airport in Dallas. Guerrero snapped this picture of the two of them together and uploaded it for his fans on Twitter.
March 1, 2014
Brock Lesnar
While it is viewed by many backstage as one of the biggest draws that WWE could put on Wrestlemania 30, the feeling is that the match between Brock Lesnar and Undertaker will not happen. Reports are stating that management is concerned that Lesnar is not willing to travel down to Texas to work out with Undertaker for a few weeks.
February 13, 2014
Sting
While a contract has not yet been signed, Sting is said to be very willing and eager to work a big match against Undertaker at Wrestlemania 30. Since he has a residence in Texas, he is said to be willing to travel down to the gym that Undertaker owns and work on their potential match together. That's something that has been done over the last few years.

Eric Young
"It may be the lack of sleep, but so far, at the Chicago airport, I've thought I saw Eric Young, Mr Anderson, Sabu, Rick Rude and Big Bossman." - Tommy Dreamer jokes about travel and sleep

Stephanie McMahon

Stephanie McMahon revealed on Twitter that she has a new jet plane. The belief is that WWE purchased the new vehicle for her because she will be attending events more frequently in the role of brand ambassador. Triple H and Vince McMahon will more than likely travel together to Monday Night Raw and Smackdown each week.

February 3, 2014
Vince McMahon

Since WWE stars had to travel through pretty rough weather this past winter, Vince McMahon is leaning towards doing more house shows on the west coast during the months of October through January, as the conditions on that side of the country are not nearly as harsh.

Natalya Neidhart

Travel isn't an easy thing. Since America Airlines lost their luggage, Natalya Neidhart and Tyson Kidd have no clothes to wear, so the WWE couple has no choice but to wear their ring gear in the hotel room. Natalya posted the hilarious picture on Twitter.

Xavier Woods

One of the perks and hassles of being a WWE performer is that you get to visit a lot of cities across the world. Xavier Woods is taking advantage of that opportunity now that he is on the main roster. He is currently on a mission to visit a local video game store in every city that he travels to.

January 24, 2014
AJ Lee

"I knew AJ Lee from developmental a year before she was on NXT. I didn't know Dolph Ziggler at all. But when we started working together and traveling to different shows we realized that we shared a similar sense of humor. It didn't take us long to realize that it was kind of an odd pairing but it worked. We had a lot of fun and it is something that I'll always remember. I learned a lot from Dolph when I was ringside for all of the John Cena matches at house shows. It was a positive way for me to start my career."

- Big E Langston

Natalya Neidhart

"My travel day from hell was on an International Tour when we got stuck over in Europe. We were heading to Switzerland but we couldn't get out because there was a volcano. There was ash in the air and they wouldn't let planes fly out of most of Europe. We got stuck there for a week. We couldn't do anything until the ash cleared. Every airport, practically, in Europe was shut down. So we had to stay there and just hang out for a week. And we nearly missed Monday Night Raw, which is unheard of. They were saying that the ash wouldn't clear and it could take up to a month to clear. When we finally, finally, finally made it home, I literally kissed the ground of the JFK airport."

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

Triple H
"People don't really know about this, but William Regal has been a fantastic mentor to me, him and Fit Finlay have been tremendous mentors to me in my time in WWE.

Arn Anderson too, as well." - Sheamus lists the guys that have helped him most backstage
February 22, 2014
Davey Richards
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
