Should WWE release Paige over the photos and video leaking?

Absolutely not.  They didn't penalize Seth Rollins when his then-fiancee decided to leak photos and this is the same thing, although on a much worse scale.  No matter whether they were willing participants when the material was made, they are both victims now in how it was released and each had their privacy invaded.  They have lost enough through embarassment.  I don't think WWE should fire Paige or Rollins or anyone for such a thing, although perhaps adding some classes to the developmental program educating the company's young talents about how they should consider and protect themselves as"public personas" and maintain their private lives from being put into such a situation may be in order.

Why isn't Andy Kaufman in the Hall of Fame at this point? I'm in the man has done more for Wrestling then any celebrity has ever done. This seems like a no-brainer however people like Drew Carey get in with only being in one match for a matter of minutes and then taking himself out of the rumble match. is Kaufman's name ever brought up for a Hall of Fame nomination?

I have no idea whether WWE has seriously considered adding him, but I agree he is a no-brainer.  Given that his family let Jakks Pacific make a WWE action figure of him years ago, I don't think they would be opposed to the idea.  Kaufman absolutely loved professional wrestling and I'd love to see him inducted as well.

What announcers do you want to see in the WWE Hall of Fame?

Off the top of my head, Lance Russell and Bob Caudle.  I also think the company should induct Les Thatcher for his overall body of work.

The Andre Battle Royal that has now become a Wrestlemania standard has been rightfully criticized for not pushing the winners much after they win. If the stipulation was added that the winner gets a title shot at the next PPV, could that help the writers, bookers, and Vince get more behind a decent push for the winner?

I think that's an interesting ideabut I'll tweak it a little.  I don't have an issue with the winner just getting the trophy, because at the end of the day, it's a match meant to pay tribute to Andre, but I like the idea.of the winner getting a title shot on a "Main Event" special that could air on the WWE Network since that was the show that Andre won the WWF title on.

The Hardy's in WWE.  What do you think about giving the Broken Universe an hour a week on the WWE Network and let them work with interested / available talent?  They could work with creative from time to time to weave their story lines could into a RAW or SmackDown or even NXT.  This would give them creative freedom and not over stay their welcome or turn off those not into the "Broken" segments.

I think it's pretty obvious such an idea would be amazing.  I'd even say that WWE, if they really wanted to do it perfectly, should go after Jeremy Borash to produce it.
