Do you think any current WWE superstar will be as big as Cena and be the face of the WWE?

 It's impossible to say because until WWE stops pushing him as the only real superstar we won't know who could step up and be the next guy.  It's up to WWE to book their talent better.

Quick question... does your correspondent Billy Krotchsen attend all the tv tapings he sends reports to? Seems like he goes to quite alot, all over North America. Or is he one of the lucky ones who have been able to find the live satelite feed for shows?

Billy is a jet flying son of a gun and attends all of the events we get reports from.

Glenn Beck, awesome radio host, just launched his own TV network (Now DISH channel 212) and yet WWE is still having trouble and waiting?

There are a few matters in play here.  One is that Beck has a dedicated, affluent audience and that's a lot easier to sell than to advertisers than wrestling fans are.  Another is that WWE wants to do a full fledged network that is carried by all of the carriers.  They are not looking at what Beck has on Dish.

A lot of people say Bret Hart is overrated to an extent. I personally think so. How do you feel about it?

 I think that in his time, Hart was an awesome worker.  I think the people that say he is overrated try to measure him against what the business was during the Attitude Era.  He didn't fit well there but in his time and era, he was awesome.

CM Punk has been champ for a very long time now. Do you think wrestling will ever go back to long term reigns? In the old days a short couple of month reign said a lot about that champs abilities.

I think in a way WWE is doing it now.  Punk has been champ for 10 months, which is a long time in today's business.  The flip side is that part of the reason that title reigns are longer are that the company hasn't created guys that would be seen as credible in the top spot.  With that said, there is an initiative at this time for longer title reigns in WWE.
