THE SHIELD ATTACKS WEAKENING RYBACK, HEEL BROOKE HOGAN, MADDOX AND MORE

As Mickie James came out to take part in the womens battle royal to determine the number one contender for the Knockout title currently held by Tara it was remarked by the commentators that Mickie James had been away for medical reasons and was granted permission by her doctor to return to wrestling. Is this true? I got the feeling she was given time off to pursue her singing career. What is the story?

100% true. She was dealing with a personal issue.

Is it my imagination that Bobby Roode and James Storm might reunite again as a tag team? With Storm being the reason why AJ Styles lost his match recently against Roode might lead to make people wonder. Instead of going after his former tag partner Storm instead confronted Styles. Possible?

It's always possible, but I really don't see it happening. There is way more worth to Storm and Roode as rivals than as a reunited tag team.

With the recent attacks toward Ryback is there a fear that all the confrontations might weaken him in the eyes of the fans? That he isn't as tough as he appears. Sure he can beat a jobber in the middle of the ring but why not three? I know it's a challenge but it shouldn't be for him since he has been built as a monster to begin with. Opinion

No, because the idea is that it takes three men to beat up one Ryback and so far, it's them attacking him when he's spent and exhausted from a really physical match. I don't think it's going to weaken him in the eyes of the fans at all, especially if that terrible Hell in A Cell finish didn't hurt him.

On last weeks Impact Wrestling it featured a possible relationship between Bully Ray and Brooke Hogan. If most assume that Bully Ray is indeed the mysterious leader of Aces & Eights do you see Brooke Hogan eventually siding with Ray against her father Hulk Hogan?

Since my belief is that in the end Bully Ray will be revealed as the leader of Aces & Eights, I can see that. The world was waiting for a heel Brooke Hogan!

If Brad Maddox is still under contract with the WWE and if the WWE is still PG, any chance that Maddox gets his release very soon for his stupid and immature videos featuring videos featuring (possibly fake)WWE Divas?

No, because as we noted on the site, it wasn't Maddox who made them.
