Xavier Woods
A lot of fans are under the assumption that the stable consisting of Xavier Woods, Kofi Kingston and Big E Langston has been disbanded. It's hard to blame them for thinking that because WWE has removed them from television over the last couple of weeks. However, rumors are floating around that the trio has been informed by management that there are still plans in place for them to work as a group in the future. The creative department simply has not figured out a good way of using them.

Xavier Woods
There might be some good news for those of you that were excited about the new stable of Xavier Woods, Kofi Kingston and Big E Langston. Management had apparently decided to split up the group because they were taken off of television, but at a recent live event, the stable was utilized once again. WWE could be testing out the audience to see if the trio can be worth saving.
August 23, 2014
Xavier Woods
The speculation right now is that the stable of Xavier Woods, Kofi Kingston and Big E Langston has been disbanded since WWE has not been utilizing them much on television. Those rumors appear to be true as Woods addressed those rumors through his Twitter account. He stated that he is not currently involved in a group. Woods also mentioned that he would much rather use intelligence as a weapon in a stable as opposed to race.

Xavier Woods
Rumors are floating around that WWE really does not have all their plans in place for that new stable featuring Xavier Woods, Kofi Kingston and Big E Langston. Several names, including R Truth, Titus ONeil and Mark Henry, have been mentioned as possible candidates to join the group, but none of that has been solidified. For the time being, the trio will continue to be vague on television.

Xavier Woods
On Monday Night Raw this week, Xavier Woods, who is only used sporadically on television by WWE, made a surprising appearance after a tag team match featuring Curtis Axel, Ryback, Kofi Kingston and Big E Langston. He cut a quick promo about how Kingston and Langston cannot get very far in WWE by being nice guys. This is the start of the long rumored stable, which has already been compared to the Nation of Domination by fans online.
July 22, 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
Jim Duggan
Some very interesting news coming out of a wrestling convention in Charlotte last month. Jim Duggan revealed to fans in attendance that he and Roddy Piper were working on getting a reality television show for themselves. Quite a lofty goal for the WWE legends, as there probably is not a whole lot of network executives who are interested in such a show.
September 29, 2014
Jack Swagger
Wade Barrett hasn't been on television in quite some time now because he suffered a shoulder injury during a match with Jack Swagger. He was recently up in Toronto, so he sought the help of Trish Stratus, a former WWE diva who now runs a successful yoga business. Barrett stated that the workout session with Trish helped his shoulder feel a bit better.
September 27, 2014
Great Khali
Even though the company has been slowly downplaying the importance of the Great Khali, WWE has plans in the works to expand even further into India. Management recognizes the country as a very profitable one for their brand. More shows are being planned, and television deals are being cemented. While the company no longer wishes to pay him as much money as before, this move into India might help Khali secure another contract soon.
September 25, 2014
Dixie Carter
Rumors surfaced this week that Dixie Carter was going to make an announcement about the new network that Impact Wrestling would be moving to. However, at the last minute, Country Music Television has emerged as a strong candidate to land the weekly TNA show. The network is under the same corporate umbrella as their current home, Spike. CMT is available in close to 100 million homes.
September 24, 2014
Dixie Carter
Rumors are heating up that TNA will be making their long awaited announcement on a new television contract. Dixie Carter has been adamant all along about Impact Wrestling being able to remain on the air, and it looks like her team is about to finalize things. No word yet on which network the deal will be with, but it appears that Spike is not in the picture. WGN and Velocity are two of the rumored networks interested in bringing wrestling on board.
September 23, 2014
Austin Aries
Add Austin Aries to the long list of performers who may be leaving TNA once their contract expires. Reports surfaced recently that he was not one of the names advertised for an upcoming tour of England, and that led to the speculation that the former world heavyweight champion was not going to have his contract renewed by the company because they are still in limbo over a television contract.
September 22, 2014
Gail Kim
With the company still in limbo on a new television contract, whenever a veteran performer has a contract that is expiring, rumors float around that the person will be leaving TNA. Another name to add to the list is Gail Kim. Long viewed as one of the best female performers in the industry, her future is unclear, as her contract expires before the end of the year.
September 21, 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.
September 20, 2014
Bray Wyatt
As many fans already know, WWE has run out of opponents for Bray Wyatt, so he has slipped down the ladder tremendously over the last couple of weeks. Sheamus has long been a rumored opponent for Wyatt, and it looks like that feud may be happening soon. Management has had the two of them working together at live events, and the belief is that it will be brought to television soon.
September 20, 2014
Jim Ross
Not a lot of details were provided when Ric Flair was forced to miss a WWE NXT show to have surgery. Jim Ross has revealed some details on that procedure. The longtime commentator stated that Flair had an appendicitis attack, and when doctors went in there to repair the damage, they discovered a hernia, so they repaired that as well. No word yet on when Flair will be returning to WWE television.
September 18, 2014
Darren Young
While the hot rumors are pointing to Darren Young being eventually revealed by WWE as the man underneath the bunny suit, a lot of fans have been wondering who has been portraying the character on television as of late. Reports have surfaced that developmental wrestler Sami Zayn has been the one in the suit. He apparently portrayed the character on Monday Night Raw and at live events.
September 17, 2014
AJ Lee
One of the more interesting things in WWE nowadays is the feud between AJ Lee and Paige. It's not so much about what has happened on television, as much as it is about what can possibly happen next. The creative department has teased sexual tension between the two performers, but management knows that it cannot go too far because of potential backlash from advertisers. With WWE needing to create a buzz for the product, it will be interesting to see how close to the line that they're willing to step.
September 17, 2014
Dixie Carter
While reports are saying that their contract with Spike TV is expiring at the end of the year, executives in TNA are still making moves as if they are definitely going to remain on television. The company has now booked the Manhattan Center in New York City for three more episodes of Impact Wrestling. It appears that Dixie Carter is extremely confident that they will be signing a deal somewhere.
September 15, 2014
Jeremy Borash
While the future of Impact Wrestling is in question because a deal with Spike TV cannot be reached, TNA is still continuing to churn forward. The company is filming a new television show called TNA Legends, and it is being hosted by Jeremy Borash, who is seemingly the most versatile person backstage. No word yet on where this show will be airing, but it will be on television somewhere.
September 14, 2014
Adrian Neville
Last week, wrestling fans were dazzled by Adrian Neville, Sami Zayn, Tyler Breeze and Tyson Kidd during a tag team match on Monday Night Raw. You can expect more of that in the near future, as the WWE NXT stars are being booked for more television appearances. Reports have surfaced that Triple H is the one pushing management to feature the developmental wrestlers more frequently.
September 13, 2014
Bully Ray
Rumors are spreading rapidly right now that Bully Ray has signed a new contract with TNA. The speculation stems from the fact that the company is now openly advertising him for Bound For Glory 2014. His contract expired not too long ago, and at the time, the belief was that the two sides were not able to come to an agreement on a new deal because TNA was still waiting for a television contract. There is also a chance that Bully Ray could just be doing a one time thing for the company.
September 13, 2014
Dixie Carter
Dixie Carter has remained steadfast in TNA being able to keep Impact Wrestling on television. While a deal with Spike is now unlikely, the company has received interest from Velocity and WGN. The latest reports are saying that there are two other networks, which are currently unnamed at this time, interested. One of the networks is said to even be stronger than Spike.
September 11, 2014
Adam Rose
Since the bunny that accompanies Adam Rose has been featured more frequently on television as of late, fans have been speculating that WWE will eventually have him work a match. It looks like that might happen sooner than later. There are talks that Rose and the bunny could be teaming up to battle Heath Slater and Titus ONeil during the kickoff match at Night of Champions 2014.
September 11, 2014
Dixie Carter
While there has not been a lot of news recently about the television contract situation in TNA, there is still a ton of things going on backstage. Reports have surfaced that Dixie Carter has been meeting with potential silent investors. For those that are not aware, silent investors are those that do not have much of a say in how the company operates. There are talks that the investment amount starts at $10 million.
September 9, 2014
Evan Bourne
Since he actually tried to trick ROH into hiring him immediately after his WWE release, it should come as a surprise to no one that Evan Bourne is now officially returning to the company later on this month when his 90 day non compete clause expires. ROH has officially announced his comeback at the September 27 television taping in West Virginia. No word yet on who his opponent will be.
September 8, 2014
Kofi Kingston
WWE is still having trouble figuring out what they want to do with the stable of Xavier Woods, Kofi Kingston and Big E Langston. However, one question appears to have been answered. Woods will be a wrestling member of the group and not just a manager, as many fans have speculated based on a couple of his appearances on Monday Night Raw earlier this year.
September 28, 2014
Alexander Rusev
Rumors are floating around right now that WWE has already dropped the new stable of Xavier Woods, Kofi Kingston and Big E Langston. Speculations rose even further when Langston worked a singles match on Smackdown, losing decidedly to Alexander Rusev. Kingston has also been working solo while doing live events in Australia these past couple of days.
August 9, 2014
Jinder Mahal
For a short period of time there, Titus ONeil had his name linked to rumors that he was joining Xavier Woods, Kofi Kingston and Big E Langston in their new stable. However, it looks like he has been crossed off the list of candidates. ONeil has now been penciled in as a permanent tag team with Heath Slater, who was left with nothing to do when WWE released Jinder Mahal and Drew McIntyre.
July 29, 2014
Xavier Woods
An interesting idea being floated around in WWE has Titus ONeil joining the stable that consists of Xavier Woods, Kofi Kingston and Big E Langston. Management really likes ONeil, as evident by the fact that he routinely gets sent out on public appearances for the company, but they do not believe that he can be pushed as a singles performer. Putting him in a stable helps to alleviate some of those concerns.
July 28, 2014
Kofi Kingston
There are those backstage in WWE that are skeptical of the idea of doing a heel turn for Kofi Kingston, who has long been regarded as the ultimate baby face. Since he does a lot of the charity work for the company, some are afraid that it will affect that aspect of his job as well. There are rumors floating around that WWE does not have finalized plans for the new stable that also consists of Xavier Woods and Big E Langston.
July 26, 2014
Big E Langston
Xavier Woods formed a stable with Kofi Kingston and Big E Langston on Monday Night Raw this week, and that has led WWE fans to speculate online about other potential members. R Truth has long been rumored to be joining the group, as he had an on screen partnership with Woods in the past. There is also a chance that WWE may simply opt to keep it a three man stable.
July 22, 2014
Big E Langston
Rumors about a new Nation of Domination should be heating up again today after results from a WWE live event in Japan has hit the internet. Kofi Kingston and Big E Langston worked together as a tag team during the show in Tokyo. The tandom went up against Luke Harper and Erick Rowan. The widespread speculation is that R Truth and Xavier Woods will be joining Langston and Kingston soon to form the new group.
July 10, 2014
MVP
Last month, rumors were finally squashed about WWE bringing back the Nation of Domination stable with R Truth, Xavier Woods, Kofi Kingston and Big E Langston. Speculations have started back up again now that WWE has formed an on screen alliance between Kingston and Langston. Management reportedly canceled the plans previously because they did not want to make it seem like they were copying TNA, which recently launched a stable with MVP, Kenny King and Bobby Lashley.
July 8, 2014
Vince McMahon
In what appears to the creative department amusing themselves and Vince McMahon, Xavier Woods will be changing up his gimmick for the next episode of Smackdown. He will be donning the red, white and blue ring gear, similar to what he wore in TNA as Consequences Creed, when he faces Alexander Rusev. WWE is doing a Russia vs United States theme.
June 5, 2014
Bobby Lashley
There were rumors a couple of weeks ago that WWE was going to bring back the Nation of Domination stable as a vehicle for Big E Langston, Kofi Kingston, Xavier Woods and R Truth to have something to do. However, it now appears that management has opted against that. Some believe that WWE does not want to make it seem like they're copying TNA, which recently introduced a stable with MVP, Kenny King and Bobby Lashley.
June 2, 2014
Xavier Woods
WWE has now officially added a match between Big E Langston and Alexander Rusev to the Payback 2014 pay per view. The goal within the company is to provide Rusev with further credibility, so that he can be eventually moved up to the main event scene. Langston is viewed as a more imposing opponent than Kofi Kingston, R Truth and Xavier Woods at the moment.
May 28, 2014
R Truth
An interesting rumor floating around right now has the Nation of Domination stable making a return to WWE. Some have noted that the four performers that have lost to Alexander Rusev recently are all black. The speculation is that R Truth, Xavier Woods, Kofi Kingston and Big E Langston will band together as a unit in the story line soon.
May 19, 2014
Xavier Woods
When WWE performers headed off to Europe for a tour, Xavier Woods was left behind. Management needed him to work the Florida Special Olympics event. Now that he is done with that task, Woods is boarding a plane to join the rest of the company overseas. He is expected to be available for Monday Night Raw and Smackdown, which are being taped in London next week.
May 17, 2014
Xavier Woods
While he is considered a long shot for the role, Xavier Woods has been campaigning to be cast as the Black Ranger in the upcoming Power Rangers movie. He even asked WWE Studios for help through his Twitter account. Management might actually try to make this happen, since they would be able to promote themselves to a similar demographic.
May 8, 2014
R Truth
Despite picking up a win over R Truth and Xavier Woods at Extreme Rules 2014, WWE is still choosing to remove Alexander Rusev from the Hulu broadcast of Monday Night Raw. The newcomer moved up the ladder a bit this week when he was allowed to squash Kofi Kingston, but WWE officials still do not view it as important enough for Hulu viewers.
May 6, 2014
Xavier Woods
A rather unusual chant was heard during the handicap match involving Alexander Rusev, Xavier Woods and R Truth during Extreme Rules 2014 last night. It has now been revealed that Sheamus appeared to have fallen asleep during the segment and a couple of members of the live audience caught him, so they started the chant to playfully mock the former world champion.
May 5, 2014
Alexander Rusev
WWE wanted to give Alexander Rusev a big win at Extreme Rules 2014, and the company did just that by having the big guy defeat both Xavier Woods and R Truth in a handicap match. Rusev forced Truth to submit to his camel clutch finisher. Woods was barely involved in the match, as Rusev threw him into the steel beam underneath the ring at the start of the match.
May 4, 2014
R Truth
To give you an idea of just how predictable many believe the match between Daniel Bryan and Kane to be, some sites are not accepting bets on the Extreme Rules 2014 main event. Betting will proceed as normal for the other matches, however. The only other really predictable choice is that Alexander Rusev will squash Xavier Woods and R Truth.
April 27, 2014
Zack Ryder
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.
