I was reading a question regarding Hogan v Austin never happening and the Michaels incident was brought up and it got me thinking 2 things, why was Hogan willing to job too Piper back in WCW, was it because they weren’t gonna let the footage be shown on Nitro?(which also begs the question isn’t that a lil bit of a slag to those who bought the PPV?) or did Piper simply have enough stroke to get him to do the job?
He had creative control back then as well. My guess as to why he would do it was money. He had a great deal where he got 25% of the gross of PPVs. The more buys, the more he made. And if it never aired on Nitro, well then it didn't have to be explained!
What is the deal with The Miz. Why has his push been curtailed?
That is a good question and all I have heard about it are rumors so I don't want to write about them in case they aren't true. What is known is that they (or more accurately he) lost faith in Miz and he was pushed down the card. A telling situation happened recently when it they needed someone to star in the new Marine movie and Vince McMahon wanted it to be someone who could be taken off of TV and not be missed. That was Miz. Hopefully for his sake, his return will lead to a push. He improved so much that it's a shame to see him used so poorly now.
On the 6/28 edition of Impact wrestling there was a guy who's name was Rashad Cameron who wrestled Mason Andrews to see who would qualify to wrestle for the X Division title at Destination X. On the 6/22 edition of Smackdown, there were 2 guys that faced Ryback. One of those guys was named Jared Wachtler who looked just like Rashad Cameron from Impact. Are these 2 guys the same person?
What were the circumstances that led to Nigel McGuinness not going to the WWE in 2009? Now for a hypothetical – how do you think he would have fared there?
There was an issue that arose on his medical tests. I don't believe he has ever commented on what it was so it's certainly not my place to do so. With that said, if he was given the proper push he would have done a great job. He is extremely talented.
With the apparent heat on Orton at the moment, and the build up of various new stars, do you see Randy feuding with up and comers such as Ryback, Cesaro or Sandow? It would be a great war to build them and keep Randy useful without being a big risk.
I think he should, just as I think John Cena, CM Punk and all of the other made guys should as well. The roster is strongest when you believe guys are equals and a match could go either way. That is something that TNA has done a great job with lately, building talents up.
