With WWE reportedly not wanting to rush a potentially signed Sting into a Wrestlemania match this year do you feel that this is so he can work on his look? Maybe some time at the training center and a hair transplant a la Chavo Guerrero while only using him publicly to induct Warrior for now?

Sting will be 55 years old in 2014. He can go to the training center all he wants but that won't give a guy nearing 60 the body that you are talking about. There is only one way I know of to do that, and WWE doesn't allow that. The bald spot is also a bit of an issue. At this point, I really wonder how much WWE can do with Sting. You don't get stronger, faster and better in your mid fifties.

If one were to write an American professional wrestling encyclopedia, in your opinion, how many volumes do you think it would take?

None. Encyclopedias are dinosaurs. You would just make a web page. No need for volumes, just start at the beginning and go from there.

While I realize, some fans don’t like Randy Orton vs. Batista as the main event for WrestleMania XXX, why not have Orton vs. Batista early in the show and main event with Daniel Bryan vs. HHH. If Bryan wins, he would get a title match in his hometown @ WWE Extreme Rules 2014? That way, fans would only “hijack” early party of WM. Thoughts?

It really doesn't address the fact that the fans want Bryan wanting to get at least a Title shot at Mania. Vince McMahon feels that working Triple H is an honor, like a title match. I don't think the fans will agree with that. So if Orton-Batista happens and it goes on early, I think the fans will react in a similar way to the way that they did at The Rumble. Keep in mind, those were just "regular" fans in Pittsburgh. Mania brings in hardcore fans from around the world. On his biggest show of the year, I don't think Vince McMahon wants his WWE Title match ruined, no matter where it is on the card.

Punk walked out on his employers. If I walked out on my employers I'd be fired so why hasn't WWE stated publicly that Punk is fired and move on?

Vince McMahon wants Punk back. He has a lot of value to the company. They don't want to have to make the situation public until they have no other choice.

I was just thinking, could the time have finally come when Vince needs HBK? If Vince were to finally let Bryan win at Elimination Chamber and then have him superkicked at Raw leading to a Wrestlemania title match would this be enough for fans to overlook a potential Punk absence? Short of a Punk-Bryan Iron Man match for the title this coupled with 'Taker-Lesnar is the only way I see Wrestlemania gaining a big time feel, unless of course Stone Cold comes in to fight HHH or Lesnar...

I would hate having a near 50 year old Michaels come back for one match and have it be for the WWE Title. I think they have enough talent to make the show sellable, they just need to book it correctly.
