You said you wouldn't mind seeing Lesnar vs. Bryan. I know you have to suspend your disbelief to watch wrestling, but there is a limit. Nobody would believe Bryan would last 30 seconds, much less win.

I guess you never saw the Undertaker-Shawn Michaels matches. It can work. Obviously, it would have to be booked correctly, but it can be done, for sure.

So let me get this straight. I was watching Raw the other night with Cody, Goldust and Dusty on one side of the ring, with HHH and his wife on the other side of the ring. The week before, Steph has Dusty knocked out with a punch. Now they are all in the ring together, effectively three against one! And the sons don’t try to kill HHH for what happened to their father? Instead, they get a future match for the boy’s jobs? How does that make any sense? Do I have to suspend reality that much? In real life, HHH would have been a dead man.

I would love to give you a good answer but I don't have one. In real life, the asskicking would have happened. That is why when they did this storyline with Steve Austin and Vince McMahon, it actually worked.

Don't you think WWE missed an opportunity when Big E Langston came out to face CM Punk.

Yeah, they wanted to feed a big guy to Punk in preparation for his match with Ryback but yes sir, it did Big E no favors at all. WWE does that kind of stuff with great regularity, unfortunately. Then, they wonder why no one gets over. HELLO!

Which is more of a threat and will subsequently radically change WWE creative: TNA on the heels of WWE viewership (averaging only 300,000 to 500,000 less) or WWE capping out at about 2.5 million viewers (but not lost to TNA)?

The only way I see TNA getting that close is if WWE drops really far from where they are now so I will go with the first answer. Heads will roll if they start doing 2.5M viewers for Raw.

I have a question that I would like to get an expert opinion on. Dividing era's into 3 generations, the Hogan years, the Attitude Era or the current generation of Cena, which wrestler do you think has done the most for the WWE. Hulk Hogan in the 80's, Austin in the 90's/early 2000 or Cena since his first title win.

Hogan's run took WWE national. Austin's run made a TON of money. I will go with Hogan because it was the reason WWE could go national and wipe out their competition. Cena is a distant third.
