December 11, 2013
Bobby Lashley
Karl Etherington was undefeated and the British heavyweight champion when he walked into Kansas Star Arena in Mulvane last night. By the time that Bellator 130 had ended, however, his unblemished record was no more. About 90 seconds into the fight, Etherington slipped on a judo throw, so Bobby Lashley was able to capitalize and land enough punches to get the referee to stop the match.
October 25, 2014
Jeff Hardy
Since he has a criminal conviction on his record, there were some speculations as to whether or not Jeff Hardy would be allowed to travel into Japan to work at Bound For Glory 2014. Sources are now stating that the former world heavyweight champion has been cleared to enter the country if he wishes. It is now up to TNA to decide if they want to have him on the show. As of right now, Hardy is not being advertised for the pay per view.
September 14, 2014
Bobby Lashley

His opponent is Josh Burns, who currently has an 8-7 record.
August 28, 2014
Vince McMahon
Vince McMahon has another big headache to deal with, as his company is being hit with a class action lawsuit. The claim is that WWE purposely misled investors about their ability to secure a much better television deal with the network than the contract that they eventually signed. The promise of a bigger television deal was reportedly the reason why a lot of investors sank money into WWE, causing their stocks to soar to record levels.
July 26, 2014
Ric Flair
Since there are plans being discussed for his return to Monday Night Raw, it is a bit interesting to note that Ric Flair has opted to not head to Pittsburgh to get medically cleared by WWE. Some feel that the Nature Boy is still dealing with a blood clot, even though the former world heavyweight champion has gone on record as saying that those issues are done.

Chris Jericho
"No time soon, I left last July and I've been working pretty much non-stop since then between Fozzy tours and doing the new Fozzy record and writing another book and doing my podcasts and a web series. There are a lot of projects in the Chris Jericho pantheon as always. That's not to say that I won't go back but I have no plans as of right now, just because I have so much other stuff going on that I'm enjoying. We'll see, there's no controversy or animosity it's more of a timing thing; the timing has to be right for me and right for the WWE as well. When it is I'm sure we'll both consider me coming back." - Chris Jericho discusses wrestling return
May 9, 2014
Vince McMahon
WWE has issued a statement touting the fact that a record number of households watched Wrestlemania 30 this year. That total comes from both the WWE Network and traditional pay per view buys. One of the reasons why Vince McMahon wanted to launch the online service was to draw in more people for the pay per view with the lower monthly pricing.
April 16, 2014
Vince McMahon
While some investors have given up hope on WWE, Vince McMahon and company still manages to break records. Wrestlemania 30 broke the record for the highest grossing entertainment event held at the Superdome. WWE pulled in $10.9 million from the gate. The press statement also touted that the company managed to sell out 75,167 tickets for Wrestlemania.
April 7, 2014
Junkyard Dog
For more than three decades, the record at the Superdome for a wrestling event was set by a show featuring Michael Hayes and Junkyard Dog in the main event. The two of them drew in 28,000 fans, which is a mark that WWE should easily blow away with Wrestlemania 30. As many already know, Hayes works backstage for the company and will be at the pay per view.
April 6, 2014
Diamond Dallas Page
"David Arquette is his own animal. As much heat as he ever took, for him, all the money he made for that pay per view when he busted me over the head with the guitar and Jeff Jarrett took the world title, the money he made, he gave to Melanie Pillman. When he pinned Eric Bischoff, not me, and I will go on record as saying that was the biggest clusterfuck ever, and it never should have happened, but it did. That being said, that was the booking committee. It was not Arquette, and every fan that has ever roasted him, should dip their own ass in boiling oil because everyone of you that has buried Arquette, if put in the same position, you would have jumped through a hoop of burning oil to do the same shit. That's why when everyone busts his balls on that, I just want to smack someone. I'm like, "really, you, Marko Mark? You would have died for that." - Diamond Dallas Page defending David Arquette for winning a championship
March 24, 2014
Roman Reigns
When a professional wrestler becomes popular, often times fans will try to get to know as much about the performer as possible. A lot of fans lately have been discovering that Roman Reigns has a public intoxication arrest on his record. However, it happened a long time ago, so WWE does not consider that a big of a deal. His push is not in jeopardy.
March 13, 2014
Eric Bischoff
"For the record, I am not making any personal appearances at any events. Someone is spreading some bullshit suggesting that I am. Save your money. I don't know who started this nonsense, but I have not had a conversation with anyone about any appearances." - Eric Bischoff warning fans
March 6, 2014
Randy Orton
It should be noted that Randy Orton has never won an Elimination Chamber match in his career. He has been involved in five of them, and WWE has made it a point to emphasize his horrible record, which means that he has a great chance of walking out victoriously at Elimination Chamber 2014 with the heavyweight championship.
February 19, 2014
Sean Waltman
"For the record, I had no issues with Virginia commission, in regards to my no show. I never received my airline tickets. Also, for the record, the Virginia promoter did everything he could as well. I'll just have to come make it up to everyone as soon as possible." - Sean Waltman explains no show
February 6, 2014
Batista

"For the record, Batista's a sweet guy with an incredible story of perseverance and hard work. He's one of the good guys."

- former WWE star Zach Gowen defending Batista

March 31, 1985
Zack Ryder
Rumors are floating around right now that there is a good amount of backstage heat from management towards Zack Ryder. Some are even pointing to the fact that he was squashed by Alexander Rusev recently as evidence that WWE is upset with him for comments that he has made on social media. The belief is that Ryder is on thin ice nowadays, as his name value has been reduced greatly by being utilized sparsely over the last couple of years.
September 2, 2014
Zack Ryder

August 25, 2014
Zack Ryder
Earlier in this week, Zack Ryder revealed to fans that WWE is no longer selling his merchandise. The belief is that it is a part of the company's plan to diminish his name value for when they decide to release him from his contract. Since the start of the year, Ryder has only been utilized eight times on television, all of which were losses. He hasn't had a victory on Monday Night Raw or Smackdown since December of 2012, when he pinned David Otunga on Raw.
July 5, 2014
Curt Hawkins
During a recent interview, Curt Hawkins revealed that the locker room morale in WWE took a massive hit whenever the company refused to push Zack Ryder properly. The wrestlers backstage felt that it would be virtually impossible for some of them to receive a push when a guy like Ryder, who built up a following on his own, was not being rewarded by WWE.
June 25, 2014
Zack Ryder
