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

Rey Mysterio
While rumors have been floating around that Rey Mysterio has left WWE after skipping Monday Night Raw to take his family to Hawaii this week, there are still talks that he is still with the company. On a leaked script that managed to find its way to the internet, Mysterio is listed on there as being injured. His name still remains on the official talent roster.
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
Rey Mysterio
Some potentially interest news coming out of WWE this week is that Rey Mysterio might have actually allowed his contract with the company to expire. The former world heavyweight champion hopped on a plane yesterday afternoon with his family to Hawaii for a little vacation. He was not on Monday Night Raw, and he is not expected at Smackdown.
April 15, 2014
Nikita Koloff
A lot of wrestling fans have been wondering about the net worth of Nikita Koloff, as the legendary NWA star has yet to even make an appearance in WWE. The former United States Heavyweight Champion is done with professional wrestler. He has been a preacher for quite some time now, and his family was also featured on a reality television for the Lifetime Network.
April 14, 2014
Barry Windham
In a sign of how much the company is vested into the character, Bray Wyatt is not allowed to do any media interviews. The Hernando Times in Florida did a feature article on Mike Rotunda, Blackjack Mulligan, Barry Windham and the family. It was revealed that WWE would not grant Bray Wyatt permission to be involved in the piece, but Bo Dallas was allowed to give quotes.
April 14, 2014
Ultimate Warrior
In a very classy move by the company, WWE sent two senior officials to Arizona to help the family of the Ultimate Warrior after his death. The move took place almost immediately after the legendary performer died of a heart attack. The story has been picked up by TMZ, and the company has received quite a bit of praise for doing such a good deed.
April 14, 2014
Samoa Joe
Rumors surfaced over the weekend that Samoa Joe had been pulled from TNA events because he suffered a concussion. However, the former world heavyweight champion has disputed those claims through his Twitter account.

April 13, 2014
Lanny Poffo
Rumors are heating up that WWE has secured a deal to induct Randy Savage into the hall of fame during Wrestlemania 31 weekend next year in Silicon Valley. The company flew in his brother, Lanny Poffo, to New Orleans, and the belief is that the move was done in order to secure the blessings of his remaining family members.
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. The local police did not want to arrest him, so they heavily suggested that he leave town to avoid any further complications. The future WWE star opted to flee to the state of Florida, where he made money by picking fruit.

Diamond Dallas Page
"I went on Nancy Grace last night expecting to discuss Warrior the man. Had I known the only topic discussed would be steroids I would not have participated. At the time I was also unaware of the list that was shown to the viewing audience. To imply that all of the wrestlers on that list died from steroids was wrong and for that they owe the families an apology. Again, my only intention was to discuss Warrior the man and share some stories about how dedicated he was to the wrestling business. I am saddened that was not what happened and my thoughts remain with his family." - Diamond Dallas Page discusses Nancy Grace interview
April 10, 2014
Daniel Bryan
"Heartbroken. My sincerest condolences go out to the Warrior's family. Seeing how much he loved his daughters and his wife this weekend makes it all the more heartbreaking. The Ultimate Warrior was my favorite as a kid, and getting to speak to him this weekend was one of my favorite moments. He was so nice to me. Reace in peace, Warrior." - Daniel Bryan on the death of the Ultimate Warrior
April 9, 2014
Dean Ambrose
"You know what, I tell him this and we joke about it, but the smartest thing WWE did was put him with me and Dean Ambrose. Because when we met him, he started from scratch. Granted he's got a whole family history in the wrestling business, but he's a football player. He's an athlete and he's coachable, but like he gets it. Like he got it quick and he understood right away what we were doing. I think putting him with myself and Ambrose, who had the wealth of experience and the all the knowledge and traveling the road. We're in a car all the time, we're on the planes together, we're having the matches together. He was just able to soak up that information we were giving out like a sponge and you can see the difference. He was great when we came in, but look at him now and he's a completely different performer. It was the smartest thing they ever did, putting him with us." - Seth Rollins discussing the backstage reason why Roman Reigns was placed with the Shield

Chris Benoit
David Benoit, the surviving son of Chris Benoit, recently released a shoot video, where he accuses WWE of not giving the family the last paycheck that Chris earned as a performer. The incident took place approximately seven years ago, so the timing of the accusation should come as a surprise to many people backstage in the company.

Batista
"I love Bray Wyatt. I love him. I love that whole gimmick, that whole Wyatt Family gimmick, but Bray I think he's gonna be a huge star. I get caught up in this guy, man. When I watch him he's one of those guys. He's another guy, I mean he doesn't look like a stud. He's not a statue of a man, but he is athletic as you can get, that kid can move man. He is agile, he is a stud man. That kid is as an athlete. He gets when he cuts a promo, you just get sucked in man. He is hypnotizing. When I talk to him like personal, on a personal level, he's one of those kids who's not afraid to learn, he has no ego. He's still learning and he knows he's still learning and he's not afraid to ask questions, and I think that's why he's going to be so good. 'Cause he's this good right now and he still wants to learn." - Batista predicting Bray Wyatt to be the next big star for WWE

Shane McMahon
While wrestling fans are clamoring for his return to the industry, Shane McMahon is going to be rather busy in the upcoming months, as the former WWE star has filed a $50 million lawsuit against the high rise building that he has been living in. Water leaks have apparently caused damage to his property and the health of his family, so he wants compensation.

Zeb Colter
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
Zeb Colter
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
Zeb Colter
Since he split with Jack Swagger and Zeb Colter, many fans are under the impression that Antonio Cesaro is doing a face turn. WWE is currently planning on keeping him a heel, as Paul Heyman functions a lot better in that role. Cesaro worked as a heel against Dolph Ziggler at a live event in Texas over the weekend. WWE might be persuaded to change their minds down the line because of his growing popularity, however.
April 13, 2014
Andre the Giant
A video from Monday Night Raw, where Hulk Hogan presents the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal award to Antonio Cesaro. This was the segment where Cesaro informs Zeb Colter that he is now a Paul Heyman guy, which prompts an attack from former tag team partner Jack Swagger.

"I want to thank the people for their support of Amelia's Law that passed unanimously in the Tennessee House/Senate and will become a law on June 1. Amelia's Law is designed for parolees and probationeers who will be attached to a transdermal device, checking drug and alcohol content every 30 minutes now instead of taking montly drug testing. Parolees will be monitored electronically 48 times a day at their expense." - Zeb Colter discussing the law that he got passed after his granddaughter was killed in a car accident
March 16, 2014
Big E Langston
Despite becoming one of the most popular stars in the entire company as of late, Antonio Cesaro was removed from the Hulu broadcast of Monday Night Raw this week. WWE did not feel that his match against Intercontinental Champion Big E Langston was important enough to show their audience again. This does not bode well for his split story line with Jack Swagger and Zeb Colter.
February 25, 2014
Zeb Colter
Last week, WWE did a tour of California, and Steve Austin took that opportunity to get some work in. The former world heavyweight champion managed to get interviews in with John Cena, Zeb Colter, Big Show and William Regal while the performers were in Los Angeles for Monday Night Raw. His podcast has featured several of the biggest stars in the industry.
February 15, 2014
Zeb Colter
WWE is planting the seeds for an eventual split between Antonio Cesaro and Jack Swagger, and many have been speculating as to what the future holds for their manager Zeb Colter. Since he is so good at being a heel, his character will side with whomever does not make a face turn. As of right now, it appears that he will be staying with Swagger.

Zeb Colter

Zeb Colter recently pretended to not know who Hulk Hogan was, so a fan called him out and let him know that since Hogan has left TNA, Colter can stop pretending now.

Zeb Colter

There are still plans within WWE to turn Antonio Cesaro into a baby face. It was supposed to have happened already, but the creative department simply has not found the time nor a suitable story to break him away from Zeb Colter and Jack Swagger.
