STORY LINE INTERVIEWS
Missy Hyatt

"I guess MVP saved his $$$ by no longer working 4 WWE & being hit w/ their pot fines 2 buy in to TNA. What does it say when a former mid card WWE guy buys in to TNA in story line? At least MVP looks & carries himself like a star. We'll see if this a good story line."

Gail Kim

"Here's the story on that. I was there as she was coming in. They knew we had worked together in TNA so they told me. 'Okay, you are going to be her first match'. Everyone knows that her first match is going to be a squash match. So she starts killing all of the girls in the ring. Then we have a house show loop and they tell me. 'Okay, you and Eve are going to get laid out'. I knew they were out to kill everything that we had done in TNA. They kept pushing off that singles match on TV and finally they said 'okay, it's going to happen'. I remember she was there and then all of a sudden she went home. She came back for a pay per view, i think it was in Seattle and she set me aside and told me 'I have to tell you something, I'm pregnant'. I told her congratulations but a part of me was also happy that it was divine intervention to save our history. I sat back said, thank you Lord."

Diamond Dallas Page

"Well I got to say first of all; no one and I repeat no one puts anything on Vince McMahon's TV without his okay. And I've had people say to me so what do you think about Vince McMahon trying to ruin your career with the whole stalker thing, blah, blah, blah. Over the years, right? Anything that anyone thought cause I made a lot of those decisions myself and they were stupid decisions by me. Anyone who ever thinks that there has ever been anything between Vince and me or whatever and I've always told everyone; no, there's not. What Vince did for me two Monday's ago with DDP Yoga was--he couldn't have given me a better angle. He couldn't have given me a better spot. He let me go on there for a minute and a half. It was written into the copy! They gave it to me. I didn't pick up the DVD's and do that. That was written for me. "Wear your shirt." Hunter told me do the foot over the head, that always blows people away. You know I was like okay! I expected to be in something but I didn't expect it to be what it was. And to have Booker T involved too, who is one of my good buddies. Cause he's the one guy from WCW who really got over. He's a five time World Champion and he got the strap there. So bottom line is to be able to do it with him and then have Ron (Simmons) come out; it was just--we did so many takes of it, every one was funnier than the next. I had liked the last one the best but there were other ones that were laugh your ass off funny. And we just had a blast. And Ron said (DDP imitating his voice), "Man, Diamond they're really working you today. This one's gonna be a shameless plug but you working for that s**t today…DAMN."

Mick Foley

"I don't know if there's going to be a true split between the SHIELD. or if the weeks long rift is going to turn out to be a false alarm. I think there has to be an eventual parting of the ways, if only because it's been obvious from the start that all three members - Rollins, Reigns and Ambrose had promising singles careers ahead of them. But if/when that split happens, the WWE Universe will be ready for it. In a business where things seem to move at warp speed, where we sometimes are in such a hurry to turn out a product that we forget to take our time with it, storylines can often jump onto our screens on our screen like a quick, microwaved meal - they gets the job done, but without any real passion in the craftsmanship, and ultimately, completey unmemorable. But WWE has taken the time to put the right spices into this angle, and when it emerges from the oven, it's going to fully seasoned, and baked with that old world cratsmanship - something we can all savor for a while."

Batista
For the longest time there, MVP was the longest reigning WWE United States Heavyweight Champion, but that mark looks to be broken soon if Dean Ambrose can hold on to the belt a little while longer. The Shield member rarely defends the belt, but WWE could opt to include it in the story line against Triple H, Randy Orton and Batista.
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
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
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
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
Brie Bella
The big story line coming out of Total Divas this week is John Cena purchasing a house for Nikki Bella. The couple was the centerpiece of the reality television show earlier when Cena refused to marry Nikki, prompting wrestling fans to wonder if they were going to break up. Since Brie Bella got married to Daniel Bryan, Cena has to figure out ways to keep Nikki happy.
April 13, 2014
Fandango
Since Summer Rae is going to be pushed as a singles star now, WWE opted to split her up from Fandango, who sold the story line through his Twitter account. As many saw on Smackdown this week, Summer Rae has been replaced with Layla El, who actually has experience as a dancer. WWE has been trying to find a role for Layla since her return.
April 12, 2014
Fandango
Despite being a pretty popular act, WWE has decided to split up Summer Rae and Fandango, who has been selling the story line through social media over the past couple of days. Fandango is being paired with another person soon, as his act needs a female dancer. Summer Rae will be utilized as more of an in ring performer with the rest of the Total Divas cast.
April 10, 2014
Dixie Carter
The big draw on Impact Wrestling this week is the return of Dixie Carter to television. TNA has been working a story line where she has been in hiding since losing control of the company to MVP at TNA Lockdown 2014. No official word has been given on what her character will do on Impact Wrestling, but the belief is that Carter will be going after MVP again.
April 10, 2014
CM Punk
Since he walked away from the company, CM Punk has now been removed from the upcoming Flintstones movie. To make it easier on the script writers, WWE has decided to replace him with Rey Mysterio, which should make it fairly easy for them to adapt the story line. The belief backstage is that Punk is going to just wait until his contract expires this summer.
April 10, 2014
Billy Gunn
WWE.com is reporting that Billy Gunn suffered a serious injury during his match against Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns at Wrestlemania 30. The report reveals that he was coughing up blood backstage after taking the triple power bomb from the Shield at the end of the match. No word yet on whether this is a story line or a legitimate injury.
April 7, 2014
Emma
While some are under the impression that WWE could be dropping the Emma story line because it was not featured on Monday Night Raw, the company still has plans on pushing her. It was simply a matter of time being a factor, as the company was heavily trying to promote as much of Wrestlemania 30 as they possible could have on television.
April 4, 2014
Ric Flair
While the legendary Nature Boy is expected to be at the event, Ric Flair is not expected to be utilized on camera at Wrestlemania 30. WWE still has plans on making him into a manager for at least one of the performers, but the creative department has been much too busy over the last couple of months to come up with a story line for that.
April 4, 2014
Brock Lesnar
One of the rumors floating around backstage in WWE is that Undertaker has not been given as much creative power over his Wrestlemania 30 story line with Brock Lesnar as he has been during the past couple of years. The buildup has been extremely lackluster, and some are blaming that on management relying solely on the name value to sell the match.
April 3, 2014
Roman Reigns
While the company has decided to drop the idea of giving him a high profile match at Wrestlemania 30, WWE officials are still interested in pushing Roman Reigns. The company simply opted to throw him into a last minute match because they were unable to figure out a way to give him a better story line and opponent to work with on the pay per view.
April 2, 2014
Brie Bella
Having been able to capture the attention of a lot of people with just the first two episodes this season, Total Divas has now become a show that fans are looking forward to. The next episode will feature an interesting story line, where Summer Rae will flirt with Daniel Bryan, which causes some backstage heat between the blonde bombshell and Brie Bella.
March 27, 2014
Billy Gunn
In a sign that they still have a good amount of backstage power, Road Dogg and Billy Gunn have been pushing management to let them work with the Shield before WWE has Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins going their separate ways. It looks like the company will be giving them that chance at Wrestlemania 30 in the Kane story line.
March 21, 2014
Mike Knox
Since the end of the Aces and Eights story line, a lot of fans have been wondering about the status of the supporting cast and whether they would still remain with the company, but those that watched Impact Wrestling tonight, they now know that Mike Knox is returning to TNA television. A segment was aired, where he explains his absence over the last several weeks.
March 20, 2014
Dixie Carter
A big meeting is taking place in TNA today, where Dixie Carter is talking to the performers about the big story line for Impact Wrestling that she has planned. It is supposed to so good that she has even asked the office workers to relocate during the meeting, so that nothing will be leaked. Only the wrestlers and writers will be allowed to know the story.
March 20, 2014
Daniel Bryan
WWE is reporting that Daniel Bryan was injured during his Monday Night Raw segment with Triple H. The website has stated that he has a dislocated shoulder and potential ligament tear. This is merely just for the story line, as Bryan was able to escape any real damage, aside from the bruises and the aches that normally come with the job.
March 20, 2014
Mr Anderson
"That was actually my idea. I said in passing one day, 'What about me dressing up as old Sting?' I mean, I had the blonde hair. And Sting actually loved it. Those outfits that I wore were actually Sting's old gear. And he painted my face. A cool moment. Looking back on that, I would have to slide him into that group of most significant opponents that I've had." - Mr Anderson talks about working with Sting
April 18, 2014
AJ Styles
"It's nuts to think that we could have four major wrestling promotions in the United States. Jeff's very smart, there's no doubt about it. He knows what he's doing, and always has a backup plan. He took TNA from nothing and turned it into something that's still around 12 years later. That's pretty darn good. That's an accomplishment right there. I trust Jeff. I trust him to put on something good, and something that people will watch." - AJ Styles on Jeff Jarrett and his new Global Force Wrestling
April 18, 2014
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
Jesse Neal
"It is funny how people make fun about real jobs and wrestlers. We are human, too. I have a family to provide for. So, yes, I manned up and provide. The biggest joke of all is I get paid way more at Walmart than I ever did in TNA and on time. What a waste of time. Print that. Don't think that this is bitterness. I'm not on their show any more. Remember, I left them. They didn't leave me." - Jesse Neal talks about his new job in life
April 17, 2014
Bray Wyatt
"So happy for Bray Wyatt. You deserve your moment, brother." - JTG praising Bray Wyatt before his match against John Cena at Wrestlemania 30
April 17, 2014
Jey Uso
"Obvious that Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso have committed to getting main event phsyical conditioning. I wish them well. They had in ring skills when they were eight years old. That's a fact." - Jim Ross praising the Usos
April 17, 2014
Ultimate Warrior
"I was told it was reported WWE was 'there' for us. 'There' is the understatement of a lifetime. They were a warm blanket to us three and we were quickly absorbed into their family. Words are cheap; promises are forever. This family is one I'm honored to be a member of and will gladly be the warm blanket to any of them who need me next." - the wife of the Ultimate Warrior informing fans of how much WWE has helped her since the death of her husband
April 16, 2014
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
Jeff Jarrett
"Seems like TNA is signing their core talents whose contracts are either up or in need of revising. WWE has seemingly made it clear that they have no interest in Impact talents and will instead reply on their Performance Center for their future stars. However, with Jeff Jarrett preparing to launch another promotion it makes sense for TNA to be proactive." - Jim Ross reveals that WWE is not interested in TNA performers
April 15, 2014
Antonio Cesaro
"Not sure why as a fan I should dislike Cesaro and it can't be simply because he's aligned himself with Paul Heyman. Cesaro simply outwrestles people and is damned impressive while doing it. Some of Cesaro's matches down in NXT the last year or so were better than anyone on RAW was having at the time." - Jim Ross thinks Antonio Cesaro should do a face turn
April 15, 2014
Christopher Daniels
"A unique athlete, it's funny because he was a book that was judged by his cover, for a very long time and it took a while to get him into TNA and we were always fighting to get him in. Everybody was like 'we gotta change his look and blah blah blah,' but finally when they gave him the chance, he showed them that you didn't need to judge him by the cover because he brings a unique intensity and a unique character to TNA and I think it would be a different TNA without him. He has changed the business." - Christopher Daniels discusses Samoa Joe
April 15, 2014
Jim Ross
"I assume that he hasn't signed with WWE only because WWE hasn't announced it. Signing Sting would create positive news for WWE as he is a major star that WWE can monetize in a variety of ways if he comes aboard. I don't see Sting even needing to wrestle to be a viable asset to WWE if he does sign with the company. If Sting did have one match it WWE it would need to be a long build, much anticipated one that has a significant payoff at a major event more specifically Wrestlemania 31." - Jim Ross talks about the rumors of Sting signing with WWE
April 15, 2014
Davey Richards
"I never really wanted to go to WWE. The tryout there was awesome. It was really fun and I can't say enough good things and I learned a lot, but I told a few of the guys during the initial tryout with Eddie that this was not for me just because moving down to Orlando is not what I wanted to do and wrestling is not the only thing I want to do with my life. To give up everything and just live in that world is not my idea of a great life or a perfect life. TNA offered me to be able to wrestle with some of the best wrestlers in the world, I could be on television, I could go and entertain crowds but I could still come home and be Wes. I could be Davey, then I could be Wes. It was just better for me and I couldn't be happier in TNA it's been great." - Davey Richards on choosing TNA over WWE
April 14, 2014
Marty Jannetty
"Happiest guy living right now. Wish I was there to watch her grow up, but so happy to be given this gift now. And from here on, I'm going to be a different person than I have been. Will be the best daddy ever, or at least the best one I can be. I'm the happiest guy on this planet right now. Now, I get it. To all the boys who have told me how it's life changing when you have a kid, man, had no kids, so I didn't get it. Now I do. That's my girl. Guys, don't you dare look at her twice. Bad ankles and all, I will make sure you never look at my daughter like that again. Love you, Bianca." - Marty Jannetty after finding out that he has a daughter
April 14, 2014
Paul London
"I've always admired and looked up to Terry Funk. Never did I actually think I'd be walking just like him. Knees hurt." - Paul London explaining how much of a toll the wrestling business gives to the body
April 14, 2014
Alexa Bliss
"I cannot believe it. So shocked and saddened by the news of the Ultimate Warrior passing. Rest in peace. Prayers." - Alexa Bliss on the death of Ultimate Warrior
April 12, 2014
Lance Storm
"Crazy story. While we were away, my mom found a briefcase and sales material scattered beside our house by the fence. She gathered them up and then tried to find some personal info to see who lost the stuff. She found a busienss card and called. Person who answered said the case was stolen out of her car over a year ago in Victoria, BC. No idea how it got to Calgary in our yard over a year later. Weird." - Lance Storm tells a weird story that took place at his house
April 12, 2014
Matt Hardy
"Ultimate Warrior and his sudden and shocking passing is a reminder to us all. Live every day to its fullest. Tomorrow isn't guaranteed to anyone." - Matt Hardy gives advice on life to his fans after the death of the Ultimate Warrior
April 11, 2014
Lacey Von Erich
"My mom called to tell me my Uncle Jimbo, aka Ultimate Warrior, died. He was my dad's best friend, and a big part of our childhood. Rest in peace." - Lacey Von Erich discusses the death of Ultimate Warrior, who worked with her father Kerry Von Erich in WCCW
April 11, 2014
Kharma
"Rest in peace, Ultimate Warrior. Thank you for being such an inspiration to us all." - Kharma shares her feelings on Twitter about the death of the Ultimate Warrior
