I don't think we've seen the end of Maddox as a WWE character, although WWE does want you to believe so.
What is the latest on Kelly Kelly returning to WWE?
She was released from her contract as she wasn't happy there and wanted to explore new things. It's possible she will return down the line but having lived most of her adult life on the road for them, I can see why she wanted to stop and have control over her own destiny, so to speak.
Hi. I was just wondering if Mike Johnson will be running a bus trip to the ECW show in Canada? Thank you for your time.
No, crossing the border is too complicated.
Two part question â€“ I legitimately canâ€™t remember WWE promoting Punkâ€™s DVD on Raw or Smackdownâ€¦ did they, and I totally missed it? Also, have there been any sales numbers released for it yet? If so, how have sales compared to other similar, superstar-centric sets? BTW, to follow up on your story about Punk being upset at the lack of support from WWE for his ventures, he also noted on Colt Cabanaâ€™s podcast a couple of weeks ago that WWE didnâ€™t even want him on the cover of the new video game, they wanted some other unnamed wrestler, and it was THQ who insisted on Punk.
WWE did indeed promote the DVD. According to someone I spoke to within the company, currently the Punk DVD is the fourth best selling title of the year, behind Wrestlemania (which is always #1 annually), an Undertaker DVD and a Rock DVD. That means Punk's DVD outsold every PPV DVD release and every other DVD released this year, including ECW and WCW compilations...and the year isn't over yet, so it's possible it could get to second or third.
Who do you think is/was a better evaluator of wrestling talent â€“ Vince McMahon or Paul Heyman?
Well, Heyman saw money in CM Punk years before Vince McMahon did, so I will go with Heyman.
