I was wondering if you guys think that there is any chance Vince McMahon will go into the HOF before he dies?
I think that the best bet is that he goes in posthumously. As long as he is alive and healthy, I think he will be part of the product and thus won't put himself in the Hall. He knows that he doesn't need to ever do that. If the company stays healthy, and they don't need to put Vince in to spike sales for some reason, I think he goes in after he dies. Honestly, it doesn't matter to him. If the Hall was going based on legitimacy he would have been the first one inducted.
Is there a possibility that WWE could release The Miz because if you looked at the Miz last year wm main eventer and put on a good show and now he has horrible performances?0
With the exception of a handful of people, there is a possibility that anyone on the roster could be released. In Miz's case his slide down the card has been obvious. We have heard that WWE is not ecstatic with his work and/or how he has carried himself over the last few months and is sending him a message. Time will tell if that is true and if it is, whether he receives the message being sent.
What does the debut/return of Lord Tensai mean for Machine Gun Karl Anderson? Do you see his involvement in the Wrestling Retribution Project leading to a stateside gig, or does he become a serious singles contender in New Japan? Also, don't the Albert piercings seem completely out of place for Tensai? Why not take them out during matches?
At this point Japan is still where his priorities lie. I am not sure how he will be used with Lord Albert gone so time will tell. Where Lord Albert is concerned, on a close up I noticed that he actually has taken some piercings out for his matches. Honestly, I think that anyone who wears anything that is pieced in a match is exposing the business in a big way. When those suckers don't ever get pulled out, it shows that guys aren't really fighting.
Why does TNA use sentimental storylines (Roode at BFG and Storm at Lockdown), but then not follow through with them?
As the immortal Jess McGrath once said years ago, "TNA, they're just stupid". I really think he was insightful there. Both matches you cited were great examples of the company being set up to do the right thing and then doing the wrong one. As their ratings seems to drop every week, they really should consider that when booking going forward. The more you set fans up and almost give them what they want before swerving them at the end, the more they tend to tune out your product.
Wouldn't the Jericho/Punk feud be better if Jericho won at Mania? And Punk turn to alcohol and drugs because he's depressed of losing?
Uh, no it wouldn't be. For one thing, it would have made Punk look weak to lose. For another, mocking his real life beliefs would have made for really, really bad TV.
