Alex Riley
While it has been quite some time since he was taken off the road as an active in ring performer, Alex Riley, who has transitioned to a broadcasting career with WWE since then, is contemplating a return to the ring. There are rumors that it might actually take place in WWE, too. One of the ideas being tossed around backstage is for him to replace Antonio Cesaro in the Real Americans stable with Zeb Colter and Jack Swagger.

Christopher Daniels
While the sides have been unable to come to terms on contract extensions, Christopher Daniels and Frankie Kazarian are said to be leaving TNA on good terms.

April 20, 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.

Low Ki
Rumors are floating around right now that Low Ki could be making his return to TNA in the near future.

Goldust
Since WWE introduced quite a bit of new performers on Monday Night Raw this week, rumors have been running rampant about which of the current stars on the main roster are going to be removed to make room.

April 13, 2014
Tara
Rumors are floating around right now about Tara, formerly known as Victoria, making her return to WWE in the near future.

Some are saying she will be given a trial run during the next developmental divas tryouts.
April 12, 2014
Damien Sandow
There are people backstage in WWE that are questioning the Rob Van Dam return, as it almost feels like an afterthought.

April 11, 2014
Damien Sandow
On Monday Night Raw this week, rumors about Rob Van Dam making his return to WWE turned out to be true. He came back and defeated Damien Sandow in a quick squash.

April 8, 2014
Undertaker
While a lot of rumors are suggesting that he is going to retire, those backstage in WWE believe that there is still a possibility that we will get another Undertaker return in the near future. Some feel that he will want to have his last match be a victory at one of the other pay per view events, such as Summerslam 2014 or Royal Rumble 2015.
April 8, 2014
Rob Van Dam
Since rumors leaked that he was going to be returning during the Wrestlemania 30 battle royal, WWE opted to pull Rob Van Dam from the event. Instead, he is now being heavily rumored to be making his return on Monday Night Raw, as management wanted to provide fans with plenty of surprises to kick start the new television season.
April 7, 2014
Batista
While management still has not completely decided on the main event finish at Wrestlemania 30, there are rumors already floating around that Batista is being moved into a feud against Sheamus after this. Aside from being a fresh feud, management views it as a possible way to give some momentum to Sheamus, who has been floundering since making his return to WWE from injury.
April 3, 2014
Andre the Giant
There are rumors floating around right now that Rob Van Dam might be one of the surprise entrants in the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal at Wrestlemania 30.

April 1, 2014
Bobby Lashley
When Bobby Lashley made his return to TNA, some felt that it might have been a temporary appearance. However, that was squashed when it was revealed that was back for an extended period of time.

March 27, 2014
Andre the Giant
Since management has been unable to figure out a way for him to make his long awaited return, there are now rumors that Evan Bourne could be one of the guys to take the four remaining spots in the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal at Wrestlemania 30. The high flying performer was initially scheduled for Royal Rumble 2014, but WWE pulled him from the big match.
March 27, 2014
Scott Norton
While he expressed his desire to make a return in a feature article for WWE last month, there are no plans within the company to bring Scott Norton back into the mix. Officials are not even interested in a cameo appearance, as they feel that the current fan base simply would not connect with the former WCW star.
March 26, 2014
Bobby Lashley
Since he is expected to make his return in a couple of weeks, there are rumors now that TNA could have Kurt Angle teaming up with Bobby Lashley.

Now that her big wedding is over and done with, there are talks of WWE bringing Maryse Ouellet back.

He might skip out on Smackdown to go be with his family.

Jimmy Uso

Carlito is denying that the two of them talked about a contract, but the former WWE star did say that he was open to the possibility.
April 19, 2014
Eric Young
Rumors have it that people backstage in WWE are amused by the fact that TNA put their world heavyweight championship around the waist of Eric Young. It is not so much a shot at Young, as many in the industry feel that he is a good worker and a nice person. The ridicule is more about how TNA went about with the story line of crowning him as champion.
April 19, 2014
Diamond Dallas Page

April 19, 2014
Antonio Cesaro
When Antonio Cesaro left him for Paul Heyman recently, Zeb Colter took to Twitter to ask fans who they thought should replace him and team with Jack Swagger in the Real Americans stable. Scott Dawson has been campaigning for the role through social media, but it is highly unlikely that WWE brings him up from developmental at this point in time.
April 19, 2014
Eric Young
Rumors have it that another reason why TNA gave the world heavyweight championship to Eric Young was to keep him from joining Jeff Jarrett in Global Force Wrestling. Young and Jarrett have a long history together, and they remain on very good terms. Since he is a very good worker and well liked backstage, TNA would much rather he stay with them long term.
April 18, 2014
Kevin Steen
It has been a couple of weeks now since Kevin Steen was rumored to have done a tryout with WWE, and very little news have surfaced since then in regards to the situation. The belief is that the company will not be signing Steen at the moment. He seems to be doing just fine, however, as Steen continues to consistently be booked by ROH and the independent wrestling circuit.
April 18, 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.
