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.

Antonio Cesaro
At one point in time, Vince McMahon considered Antonio Cesaro to be a boring performer and character. Chris Jericho confirmed that during his podcast interview with Rob Van Dam.

Jim Ross
During his podcast interview with Jim Ross, the topic of John Cena doing a heel turn was brought up with Steve Austin. The former WWE star was adamant that the move should not happen.

Daniel Bryan
During their podcast interview session, both Jim Ross and Steve Austin stated that WWE will eventually put the heavyweight championship on Daniel Bryan, as Vince McMahon is too smart not to see his popularity.

February 22, 2014
CM Punk
During a podcast interview with Jim Ross, Steve Austin stated that he thinks CM Punk will be back in time for Wrestlemania 30.

February 21, 2014
Chris Jericho
While the company is looking into competing in the area, right now, WWE is promoting the podcast that Chris Jericho does twice a week.

February 19, 2014
Kofi Kingston
During a recent podcast interview, Kofi Kingston was asked who his dream opponent would be for Wrestlemania. He quickly replied that Rey Mysterio would be his first choice. Unfortunately, though, that seems highly unlikely to happen, as Kingston has not been penciled in for a Wrestlemania 30 spot yet. He could be a last minute addition.
February 16, 2014

Xavier Woods
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
Zack Ryder
In a rather interesting move, Alexander Rusev has been removed from the Hulu broadcast of Monday Night Raw for the second week in a row. His debut match against Zack Ryder was omitted the previous week. He defeated Xavier Woods this week and assaulted R Truth afterwards. Apparently, WWE did not feel that was important enough to include on the Hulu version.
April 15, 2014
Xavier Woods
While they occasionally worked together over the past year, rumors have it that WWE is trying to downplay the on screen relationship between Xavier Woods and the Funkadactyls.

Xavier Woods
Even though the company does not have any plans on pushing him in the near future, Xavier Woods is well liked backstage by many in WWE.

March 9, 2014
Xavier Woods
In order to increase his job security within the company, Xavier Woods has been pushing for his own show on the new WWE Network. The idea would be a reality television show following him as he visits video game stores across the world. He is a big fanatic and feels that he can capture some of the audience who play games as well.
February 22, 2014
Xavier Woods
While there looked to be some promise early on, it now appears that WWE is no longer pushing Xavier Woods. He has been largely neglected on Monday Night Raw and Smackdown over the last few weeks, and the belief is that the creative department has been inundated with things to do before Wrestlemania 30, so Woods will have to wait.
February 21, 2014
Antonio Cesaro
Since it is heavily integrated into his character, most fans associate Rey Mysterio with his hometown of San Diego. In a rather interesting move, WWE opted not to utilize him as the live event in that city over the weekend. Instead, he was sent up north to San Jose to work a six man tag team match featuring Mark Henry, Xavier Woods, Alberto Del Rio, Jack Swagger and Antonio Cesaro.
February 9, 2014
R Truth
An interesting thing happened at a WWE live event in Oakland this week, as Xavier Woods, who normally teams up with R Truth, and Mark Henry formed a tag team. They had a match against Jack Swagger and Antonio Cesaro, which was won by the new team. The move has raised some eyebrows as Henry was rumored to be teaming with Big E Langston when he makes his return on Monday Night Raw.

Xavier Woods

Some last minute replacements were added to Royal Rumble 2014. Initially, Xavier Woods and Wade Barrett were given spots in the big match, but WWE officials decided to remove them and replace them with JBL and El Torito instead.

January 28, 2014

January 27, 2014
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
Brodus Clay

The current plan in WWE is to have Naomi and Cameron leaving Brodus Clay, who has now turned heel, and Tensai to join Xavier Woods and R Truth. The segment on Monday Night Raw this week was designed to further that story line.

December 17, 2013
Xavier Woods

Initially, the feud was designed to give the spotlight to newcomer Xavier Woods, but it now appears that WWE has shifted the attentiont to Brodus Clay and his impending heel turn instead. That's why they went with that segment on TLC last night.

December 16, 2013
Brodus Clay

The top candidates to work the kickoff match at the TLC pay per view right now are Xavier Woods, R Truth, Brodus Clay and Tensai. There's also a chance that WWE could opt to do a singles match between Woods and Clay as well.

December 7, 2013
R Truth

While many fans are under the impression that it is a permanent thing, WWE might not be doing a permanent heel turn with Brodus Clay. The belief is that this is just to give Xavier Woods something to work with.

Naomi Knight

Many within WWE are concerned about the status of Brodus Clay after the company had Xavier Woods doing his entrance with his Naomi and Cameron on Monday Night Raw this week.

November 26, 2013
Lance Storm
The boring gimmick that Lance Storm received while working in WWE was actually a little jab at internet wrestling fans. Many viewed him as a guy that was just too boring to be a star. In actuality, though, Storm has a pretty good personality and a sense of humor backstage. WWE went with the gimmick in order to try to something to see if it would give him momentum.
April 13, 2014
Kamala
Back when he was a teenager in Mississippi, Kamala was a bit of a thief. He became known in town as a burglar who came from a poor family.

Arn Anderson
Even though the truth has been out there for several years now, a lot of wrestling fans are still under the belief that Ole Anderson and Arn Anderson are brothers in real life. They're not. The relationship was created for their on screen characters to help Arn connect with the audience quicker because Ole was already established in the territory.

Uncle Elmer
Back during the 1980s, one of the most talked about segment in professional wrestling was when Uncle Elmer got married on national television.

Condrey reportedly did not inform Jim Cornette or the NWA, either.
April 2, 2014
Jim Cornette
While a lot of performers will say that they always wanted to be involved in the professional wrestling industry, Jim Cornette actually means it. The legendary NWA manager started working in the business when he was just 14 years old, serving as a photographer, ring announcer, magazine correspondent and as a public relations person.
March 23, 2014
Randy Savage

March 21, 2014
Mike Rotunda

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
Mr Fuji
When the future WWE Hall of Fame inductee made his debut in professional wrestling in 1965, there were not a lot of prominent Asia people in the country, so Harry Fujiwara, who was actually born in the United States, opted to stop using his real name and shortened it to Mr Fuji. It was easier for promoters and fans to spell and pronounce, and the move paid off rather well.
March 20, 2014
Bret Hart
Years before the Bret Hart screwjob in Montreal, Vince McMahon pulled the same trick on Wendi Richter. Since she would not sign a new contract with the company, McMahon wanted to take the belt off of her, so instead of telling her about it, the future WWE CEO opted to put the Fabulous Moolah in a mask. Along with the referee, Moolah changed the ending and took the belt off of Richter, whom the legendary performer trained.
March 20, 2014

March 20, 2014

For those of us that watched him in WCW, La Parka will forever have a small place the hearts of professional wrestling fans. The story of his mask has been a topic of interest for people.
