Settle a bet.  Did Nick Cage ever train for the film The Wrestler or did Mickey Rourke replace him before that?

Afa Anoa'i told me once during an interview Cage did one training session in the ring and then left the film, with Rourke replacing him.

What's the plan for XFL coverage here on the site?

No different than we've done in the past.  We'll keep an overview on it due to the ownership contingent including The Rock, but it's not like we'd do play by play or anything for the games.

Why is WWE acting like Piper Niven was never Doudrop?

To get the new (well, old) character over.  Why dwell on what you want the audience to ignore anyway?

Why would WWE ask a retired wrestler to take part in the Rumble just a few hours before the match?

Well, Booker may be retired as a regular performer, but he's still in great shape and trains talents every week at his school in Texas.  It's not like they asked someone who hadn't wrestled in years to now go 45 minutes in a main event.  I'm guessing that once Booker stretched and warmed up backstage, he was good to go, especially since it was a short sequence and not a long, hard-hitting, competitive run in the Rumble.

Do you think we'll see a Team 3D reunion in Impact Wrestling?

I think it all depends on whether D-Von wants to go back to wrestling in the ring on a regular basis and whether he and Bully want to be a team.  Could they do something on occasion or for an angle, sure.  Full-time is a completely different animal.

Any Thunder Rosa updates?

Still out with her back issues.
