I have been a FloSlam Sports subscriber in the past.  I always thought 20 dollars was a little high considering I can get NJ World and WWE for half that price.  Now they are charging THIRTY dollars a month?  What are they thinking?  What do you think about it?

I don’t know any of the people involved but in most businesses when someone does a fifty percent price increase, it is at least a sign that they aren’t generating the revenue that they need or want at the old price point.  While I have always loved independent wrestling and think that the concept of broadcasting them in this manner is a great idea, I have always said that when you can get products like New Japan and WWE for 10 dollars a month or less, almost 20 bucks was just far too much to charge.  And frankly, $29.95 is WAY too much to charge.  The quantity of the events that they deliver is great an all, but when the competitors are delivering more, for much less, you have made a mistake in your pricing in my mind.  They know their business better than I do, but that kind of extreme price hike would concern me if I were a customer.

Is it just me, or are Bray Wyatt's promos starting to wander into Warrior territory?

They can definitely be out there, but in a different way from Warrior.  

For a guy who got Mr Kennedy fired for a slightly too high-angled back drop, shouldn’t Randy Orton be at least slapped on the wrist for his recklessness with the Singh brothers? The first back suplex wasn’t too bad but the 2nd was just sloppy and dangerous - and judging by his facial expression afterwards, he knew it!

Let me guess, you took offense to what Randy said about indy wrestling.  I think it’s pretty much of a reach to be able to read his facials and draw intent.  Orton has always been a very safe worker.  If he messes up, he would apologize to the talent.

I know a lot of the wrestlers will sign autographs in a proper place (IE fan gatherings, airports, etc) if the fan(s) are polite and pick and choose their moments to ask but if someone saw Vince McMahon somewhere just standing there and they were polite and asked nicely, would he sign autographs?  Or does he have a no autograph policy? Just never heard one way or the other if he signs or not.

I know that he has signed in the past.  I think at this point, if you caught him in the right place at the right time, you would have a chance.  It would just be a matter of catching him, which given his finances won’t be easy.

When companies purchase television ad time, are they able to specify that their commercials run during Raw or Smackdown? Also, beyond companies that they have agreements or projects with, does WWE have any say over what companies are allowed to advertise during their shows? Thanks and keep up the good work. 

WWE sells its programs to USA.  USA then sells the ad time to sponsors.  That is the process.
