Why have they seemingly set out to break down Lesnar? Every time he meets up with Goldberg, Goldberg walks all over him. And even if Lesnar beats Goldberg at WM, he is still way behind. Can you see any logic in what they are doing to Lesnar?

Nope, I can’t.  Even if Brock will get his revenge at Mania, they still have chosen to give all of the goodwill that comes with punching him to a 50 year old, short term guy.  I think it would have been much smarter to use it on a younger talent, one that will be with the company for years to come.

Why was the decision made to pair Paul Ellering with the Authors of Pain?   They definitely need a mouthpiece, but I was disappointed when I heard the fans chanting "Who are you?" when they debuted.  Do you think he's connected with the fans?  Do you see him staying with them if they get moved to the main roster?  Is there anyone that could replace him, other than Paul Heyman?

He’s a veteran who was the manager of one of the greatest tag teams of all time.  I loved the choice because (once the fans realized who he was) it gave credibility to the Authors Of Pain.  I liked the hire.  If they move up, he should go with them.

During the RR Pre-show, during the women's match, notice was made that Natalya was the first 3rd gen superstar. Am I not understanding something, or what is Randy Orton, Bray Wyatt, Bo Dallas, etc?

I didn’t see it.  Unless they said the first third generation WOMEN’S wrestler, it would obviously be wrong.  Who could forget The Rock?

With the state of Trump's presidency so far (granted its only been a week) and how much negativity is flying around about his decisions up to this point, do you think the McMahon family friendship and the appointment of Linda to his cabinet may reflect negatively on the WWE?  I mean they are quickly becoming a multi-national world wide brand, and I wonder internationally and nationally how their close relationship could or could not hurt the company.  Your thoughts?

I can tell you first hand that it already has.  I have heard from two now former subscribers that as much as they love the site, when the McMahons gave money to Trump and Linda got the appointment, they couldn’t support WWE anymore.  If it happens with us, we are not alone.  Trump is a divisive figure and aligning themselves with him is a risky choice, even if they never mention him on TV or social media.

I and a 28 year old man and get really angry whenever I see Roman Reigns.  I know you have asked for a reason why, but I can’t put my finger on why he makes me so mad.  So I want to boo him.  Why is that so wrong?

Hey, it’s your life.  You decide what makes you angry and what doesn’t.  But to answer your question, it’s not necessarily wrong, but it is kind of stupid.  You are a 28 year old man that watches a product that is being produced to appeal to people half of your age and younger, you know kids, and then you get mad when WWE doesn’t give you what you want.  Think about that.  You are at the age when you may have young kids.  You may take them to Disney movies.  How would you feel if there were old guys there booing Elsa?  Yeah, wrestling is a little different but at the end of the day, it’s a business that is marketed to kids 14 and under so if you watch it too, you should keep that in mind.  It is what it is, not what you or I may want it to be.
