Vickie Guerrero
Since she is now focusing on her education, new career and business, there is backstage heat towards Vickie Guerrero from a couple of people backstage in WWE.

Mick Foley
"He was an intense guy, and he was a perfectionist. His career was based on looking as good as possible. That meant eating as good as possible, training as hard as possible, avoiding anything that a normal human being might reach out to in their everyday culinary affairs." - Mick Foley on the diet that Ultimate Warrior had
April 17, 2014
Chavo Guerrero
Throughout the past several months, Chavo Guerrero has been taking in quite a few business meetings, in order to set up his career outside of professional wrestling. It looks like one of those ventures has come to fruition, as Guerrero is now doing a talk show for GeekNation.com, called Where Men Come To Be Men. Rampage Jackson and John Morrison recently filmed an episode with him.

Brutus Magnus
"I'm as grateful to Sting as anybody in the wrestling business for the benefit he has had in my career. Steve is a great guy and very very smart and just a model citizen as far as the way he conducts himself and how much respect he commands. There are some people who seem to be obsessed with respect and seem to be obsessed with guys not showing them enough respect but Sting is a guy who has never had to pull any stunts, never had to bully anyone, never had to throw his weight around or pull rank; he commands respect. The same could be said about Kurt Angle." - Brutus Magnus discusses how Sting is backstage
April 15, 2014
Sting
"Mourning the loss of Jim Hellwig. I don't believe anyone has ever published this picture before today. The snapshot was taken two days before Thanksgiving in 1985, as we prepared to leave my house in Newhall, California and embark on a career in wrestling. Jim always challenged me to strive at being the best, and I'll forever be grateful for the encouragement and motivation he provided. I was looking forward to catching up with him, and I'm saddened we didn't have that opportunity before he passed. My heart goes out to his wife Dana and their two daughters, and they will remain in my prayers." - Sting speaks about the death of the Ultimate Warrior
April 10, 2014
Mark Henry
With his career winding down and his age going up, Mark Henry has decided that he needs to drop some weight, so that he can fully enjoy his last couple of years as an in ring performer for WWE. The former world heavyweight champion revealed that he now weighs less than 400 pounds, a limit which he has not seen in quite a few years.
April 2, 2014
Billy Kidman
Following in the footsteps of several other wrestlers who have done the same in the past, Billy Kidman has released a book. However, there are talks that the former WCW star is only releasing it in Europe. There are also those that state that the book is rather short, even though it is supposed to encompass his entire career in professional wrestling.
March 22, 2014
Randy Savage
Back when he was a star for WWE during the late 1980s, Randy Savage made a discovery that would have a bit of an impact on the professional wrestling industry. The former world heavyweight champion was the one that discovered Sid Vicious, whom he convinced to give the industry a try. Savage sent Vicious to train with Tojo Yamamoto to start his career.
March 22, 2014
Bobby Eaton
Since he was the only professional wrestler in the history of the industry to have been trained by Ric Flair, Stan Lane paid homage to mentor very early on in his career. At one point in time, he used the name Stan Flair. He also went by Nature Boy Stan Lane, while making a name for himself in Florida. He became Sweet Stan Lane while teaming with Bobby Eaton in the Midnight Express.
March 21, 2014
Colt Cabana
"Yeah, a lot of people tweeted it towards me. I think he is entitled to his opinion. You can't fault people for having an opinion. Luckily for me, I've never been put in a position to hire and fire people, and he was in that position and he can't hire everybody. I'm one of the people that Jim Cornette didn't want. Obviously the people that he didn't want aren't going to be happy about it. That's life. I could hold a grudge, but I don't. I understand that you have to hire and you have to fire and the ones that you fire aren't going to be happy. It's about going on and moving on. Luckily, I've done way bigger and better things since leaving Ring of Honor. Maybe it was a mistake by them for letting me go, and maybe it wasn't if they're happy with the direction that they've gone. I don't hold any grudge against Jim. I'm almost kind of thankful that I was able to go on to better places in my career." - Colt Cabana addresses the backstage heat he has with Jim Cornette
March 21, 2014
Mike Rotunda
Back when he was with the NWA, Mike Rotunda had an amateur wrestler gimmick when he teamed with Rick Steiner. It was actually based on his real life athletic career in college. Rotunda really did wrestle at Syracuse University. He was never an All American, though.
March 21, 2014
Bobby Eaton
Despite being one of the best performers in the history of professional wrestling, Ric Flair has opted against training others in the art of the game. In fact, the former NWA champion has only formally trained one person in his career. That man is Stan Lane, who formed the legendary Midnight Express tag team with Bobby Eaton during the 1980s.
March 20, 2014
CM Punk
Since he is no longer on the road for WWE every single week, CM Punk has found himself with some free time. The former world heavyweight champion was recently spotted in the studios, recording guest vocals for a band called Madball. The belief is that this is just a favor to his friends, as opposed to Punk seriously pursuing a career in music.
March 20, 2014
Chris Jericho
In the eyes of the fans, WWE is definitely a step up from TNA. However, that is not the case when it comes to the performers themselves. During a podcast interview with Chris Jericho, Rob Van Dam revealed that several of the guys backstage in TNA did not view WWE as a wise career move for themselves, as a lot of performers have failed to make progress after signing with Vince McMahon.
March 18, 2014
Dolph Ziggler
In the latest episode of Last ReZort, Zack Ryder talked about how the greatest moment of his WWE career was winning the United States Heavyweight Championship from Dolph Ziggler, so he decided to shatter that glass ceiling by destroying the title belt.

Trish Stratus

March 17, 2014
Kane
In a move that signals that his professional wrestling career is coming close to an end, Kane has opened up an insurance company in Knoxville with his wife. He has told people for the longest time that he wants to retire, but it is just hard to do so because the money that he makes in WWE is a considerable amount each year.
March 14, 2014
Bully Ray
Apparently, the cryptic message that Bully Ray posted on Twitter about the Chicago audience during Monday Night Raw convincing him to make a career change was about his own face turn that took place at TNA Lockdown 2014. Many were under the belief that it was a sign that he was headed back to WWE for one last stint.
March 12, 2014
George Steele
After a successful career as an amateur wrestler at the University of Michigan, Rick Steiner was discovered by George Steele, who convinced the college graduate to become a professional wrestler immediately after he finished school.
March 10, 2014
Gunner
In a crowd pleasing segment at TNA Lockdown 2014, Gunner was able to secure one of the biggest wins of his career by defeating James Storm in a Last Man Standing match after Storm was unable to get back up from a superplex through two steel chairs.
March 9, 2014
John Morrison
Even though he remains quite focused on his movie career, John Morrison has been gaining a reputation on the independent wrestling circuit as quite the asset. He handles himself professionally and is a pretty good draw at these shows. That is how the former WWE star has been able to consistently get booked across the country.
March 9, 2014
CM Punk
Even though he has not been with the company for quite a few weeks now, CM Punk is still receiving paychecks from WWE. He still ranks among the top merchandise movers in the entire company, with some reports stating that he only trails John Cena in that category. Punk is still under contract to WWE, so management is still paying him his royalties.
April 18, 2014
Hulk Hogan
Earlier in the week, it was revealed that Hulk Hogan had been booked to work the Smackdown taping in London next month. Word going around is that the company convinced the former world champion to work the show because WWE has struggled to fill the arenas when they do back to back shows. Undertaker was utilized as a draw last year to help with the problem.
April 18, 2014
Brock Lesnar
The plans being penciled in backstage for Summerslam 2014 is for Brock Lesnar to make his return and challenge Daniel Bryan for the WWE championship. Rumors going around right now is that Lesnar will be taking time off until about a month before the pay per view. The former UFC champion would then return and state that his next challenge in WWE is to go after the world title.
April 18, 2014
Alexander Rusev
While management has not officially give him an extended feud to work with since his debut, Alexander Rusev is still being penciled in for a filler match at Extreme Rules 2014. He is expected to squash someone in a quick segment. Top candidates right now are Zack Ryder, R Truth and Xavier Woods, as those are the three WWE performers he has worked with lately.
April 18, 2014
Batista
Even though the stable was just reunited, it appears that WWE is already planting seeds for an eventual breakup between Triple H, Batista and Randy Orton. Through an online poll, the company has been asking fans which of the three is the most dominant. The belief is that WWE will go with a story line where egos break apart the trio like it did several years back.
April 18, 2014
Austin Aries
If you're a big fan of Austin Aries, then you're going to be disappointed at the upcoming rounds of Impact Wrestling, as the former TNA World Heavyweight Champion will not be utilized as frequently as he should. Rumors going around right now is that he had a big blowup backstage at a recent set of television tapings, and management is none too pleased with Aries at the moment.
April 18, 2014
Fandango
Even though her character was dumped by Fandango in the story line, do not expect a face turn for Summer Rae. The blonde diva will be working as a heel when she returns to WWE after filming her parts in the upcoming Marine sequel. Summer will also be utilized more as a wrestler this time around as opposed to being a side character.
April 17, 2014
Antonio Cesaro
The backstage gimmick for Antonio Cesaro is that WWE will try to get the fans to beg for a face turn. Management is still secretly passing out Cesaro Section signs to the fans at the live events. The hope is that fans will be clamoring heavily for him to leave Paul Heyman and finally become a good guy. If that works, then he can get his big match against Brock Lesnar in about a year.
April 17, 2014
AJ Lee
Since AJ Lee is taking some time off, WWE needed to find a challenge for Paige and the Divas championship. Management has opted to go with Tamina Snuka, who is expected to be the challenger at Extreme Rules 2014. WWE has been high on Tamina for quite some time now, and they have been looking at ways to reward her.
April 17, 2014
Batista
Even though Daniel Bryan and John Cena are both expected to work their respective matches at the pay per view, Extreme Rules 2014 will be built around a huge six man tag team match featuring Batista, Triple H, Randy Orton, Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose. WWE might even have Evolution and Shield closing out the show as well.
April 17, 2014
Christian
Initial plans for this past Monday Night Raw did not include a tournament to crown a new contender for the WWE Intercontinental Championship. Management was originally expecting Christian to be able to come back and cash in his title shot. However, there were some bad news on the veteran performer, who has been recovering from yet another concussion, so WWE changed the plans.
April 17, 2014
Antonio Cesaro
Since the title belt is being given more of a story line than it has been in a while, a lot of fans have been speculating as to who will win the tournament to determine a new challenger for Big E Langston and the WWE Intercontinental Championship. Right now, management is leaning towards Antonio Cesaro, who is in the midst of a big push.
April 16, 2014
Alberto Del Rio
Prior to Wrestlemania 30, there were plans in place to push Alberto Del Rio towards Big E Langston and the WWE Intercontinental Championship, so when the tournament was announced, many viewed Del Rio as a top candidate to win. However, management has changed their minds on that push, as evident by the fact that Del Rio lost to Rob Van Dam on Monday Night Raw this week.
April 16, 2014
Batista
After beating Triple H, Randy Orton and Batista at Wrestlemania 30 for the heavyweight championship, a lot of fans wondered who WWE will choose to work with Bryan in his first month as champion. As of right now, it looks like management is leaning heavily towards Kane to be his first major opponent. The two are expected to work Extreme Rules 2014 together.
April 15, 2014
Antonio Cesaro
With Antonio Cesaro branching off and aligning with Paul Heyman, rumors have it that WWE is looking for a replacement tag team partner for Jack Swagger. Zeb Colter even played up the story line through Twitter. There is a very good chance that the company repackages one of the current veterans on the roster who do not have a story line to work with.
April 15, 2014
Ashley Flair
One of the ideas being discussed right now is to have Ric Flair managing Ashley Flair in WWE NXT. With Paige being elevated to the main roster, management can now put more of the spotlight on Ashley, Sasha Banks and Bayley. Having the Nature Boy involved would help to increase interest from the audience, as he is still a beloved performer.
April 15, 2014
Bruiser Brody
Older wrestling fans took quite an interest in WWE inducting Carlos Colon into the hall of fame this year. Many were expecting to see some backstage heat incident taking place because there are still many people in the industry who blame Colon for his involvement in the murder of Bruiser Brody. Cooler heads prevailed, and the situation went pretty smoothly for WWE.
April 15, 2014
Dolph Ziggler
While there were talks about building a stable around Dolph Ziggler and Miz, two performers who have not been pushed as much as they used to be lately, those discussions have grown a bit dormant as of late. WWE has been focused on bringing up the developmental wrestlers from WWE NXT, and they have been occupied with the tribute show for Ultimate Warrior.
April 15, 2014
Sting
While an agreement has been reached between the two sides, it appears that Sting still has yet to sign the contract, wanting to make sure that he and his people go through the details of the arrangement with WWE very finely before making a commitment. One of the main issues is the amount of dates that Sting will have to work as an in ring performer. He will not be wrestling much for WWE.
April 15, 2014
Triple H
There has been a bit of a shift in philosophy backstage with Triple H taking over more of the power from Vince McMahon, as the former world heavyweight champion is more inclined to respond to internet wrestling fans by taking jabs through the story lines. For years, McMahon has long avoided any connection with fans online, but HHH likes sending messages to people who complain.
