We reported yesterday about WWE having interest in names currently working for TNA Wrestling. We have more information regarding other names as well.

Bill Goldberg has had talks with WWE, we've detailed possible plans to utilize him at Wrestlemania 33, but there is nothing being discussed about him returning imminently for the brand split.

One mainstream publication reported WWE has spoken with Rey Mysterio about returning next month. That's true but we've reported multiple times that WWE and Rey have mutual interest when he becomes a free agent.

WWE has also been happy so far with the guys they've brought in from New Japan and are looking at guys like Shelton Benjamin and MVP who have spent some time in NJPW since leaving WWE. Right now WWE views New Japan experience as a badge of honor.

Benjamin is getting a big push in Pro Wrestling NOAH right now and there was talk of putting the GHC title on him but NOAH fears he's heading back to WWE.
