Doesn't it show that WWE hates Zack Ryder that right after they let him get a win on Smackdown, they then have Big Show destroy him?
Hate him? No I wouldn't say that. But it shows that they don't have any serious plans for him. WWE managers say all of the time that guys have to do things to make themselves stand out and get over. Zack did all of that and they showed it didn't matter at all. I am not saying Zack should be the World Champ or anything but if a guy gets over it just makes sense to me that they take advantage of it.
What would have happened if Hulk Hogan had been seriously injured during his title reign (pre-WrestleMania 4)? Who do you think would the WWE had moved the title to?
Vince would have freaked out. My guess is Randy Savage would have gotten the belt.
Do you ever get tired of answering questions that seem more like people wanting to state their opinion than actually caring about what you have to say or even asking a question at all?
Tired? Not really. I realize that is the nature of the column. I do laugh however when people use faulty logic and/or facts not in evidence to make a shaky case for their opinions. I would say, "There are no stupid questions" but that would be a lie.
Do you think we would view wrestling's boom period (NWO/Attitude) differently had their been more of an online presence at the time? Would there have been more criticisms of the product at the time if there were daily updates and running commentary?
Actually, there was a huge online presence then. The web was starting to take off then but there were Usenet newsgroups and services like AOL and Prodigy which had huge followings. Both promotions used the net to push the product as well. The difference I see would be in social media and I am really glad that wasn't around then. It would have mucked up both products.
Is there anyone in the WWE that they could use to elevate with an undefeated streak a la Goldberg? I see them trying with Ryback, but so far all he had done is beaten jobbers, not even WWE employees, just random local jobbers? Who could they use to elevate to the next level? I thought they should've done that with Sheamus but they killed that in the HHH/ Cena Programs. I think having someone go so long being undefeated would be could for the company. Your thoughts?
Sure, there are tons of guys that they could do it with. All it really takes is charisma and a sustained push. Unfortunately, WWE doesn't seem to be able to commit to something like that.
