What ever happened to Brian Adams and Bryan Clark of Kronik? Are they still wrestling anywhere? And why weren't they given a push when were in WWE? Tag teams were actually relevant during that time.

Adams passed away in 2007.  Clark is retired as far as I know.  They were brought in to WWE as a favor to Undertaker.  They had a really bad match with Taker and Kane and they weren't signed.

When the Aces & 8's story line started I thought that it was very intriguing mainly because it was so different than what we were seeing in WWE. There was a point when I couldn't wait for Thursday to see how they advanced the story and to find out who these guys were, since many wrestlers have been rumored to be apart of this group. Now I feel they have let this story line progress the same way week after week that many people just don't care the outcome. Honestly I don't know if they can do anything to make this a hot angle again. In my opinion where TNA blew this was when they had taken the ring crew guy hostage to interrogate him to find out names involved and instead just let it be another brawl, if they had revealed at least one or two names involved it would have freshened this angle up. Where do you think TNA dropped the ball with the A&8's angle?

To me the angle lost steam when it dragged on too long.  Then, when Hulk Hogan became a focal point of it, it really went off the rails.  Those are the two points it lost steam in my eyes.  To be fair, I am typing this is on Sunday before Bound For Glory so maybe they can bring it back at the PPV. 

So I was just reading the most recent headlines on your awesome site and I'm left confused. In your next to last story you report that Tammy Sytch has been arrested for the 5th time in the past month only hours after being released from jail on a $25,000 bond. In the next story you claim that Hulk Hogan may be the biggest jolt of all time because he trusted his friend of many years to not screw him over. Hogan may have been naive and he certainly used poor judgment but he was participating in consensual sex with another adult and simply misplaced his trust. Compared to assault and burglary that seems quite minor to me. We've all made the mistake of misplacing trust at one time or another, very few of us assault and rob. I love your site and find it to be quite informative and entertaining but don't you think you're being a little bit biased against Hogan? Please don't ignore me this time....

If I had written "jolt" I could see your point.  However, this is the headline I used:

HULK HOGAN MAY BE THE BIGGEST DOLT OF ALL TIME

When you bang a guy's wife, in his house, and it gets taped, to not immediately think he had something to do with that makes you a dolt.  To trust him when he claims ignorance makes you a bigger dolt.

Why does the WWE proclaim that WCW was “given two hours” of prime time TV to start Nitro? This is mentioned on the Monday Night Wars and Best Of Nitro DVDs. It was a one hour show for an entire year before it went to 120 minutes on Labor Day of 1996.

Honestly?  Because WWE believes the truth is what they tell us it is.  It's that simple.

I know this may be an odd question, but with so much of the business these days being out in the open and fans knowing or at least knowing the identities of everybody from creative team members to the ring crew etc., who is one person we have likely never heard of that has made a huge contribution to the business, but never received any acknowledgement?

Myron Fleckelbaum. He was a legend.  WWE would never be what it is today without his contributions.
