Whose idea was it to give The Undertaker the Wrestlemania streak and why him? Did the realize the could make money off of him that early?

 The streak was born out of the fact that Taker rarely lost.  Eventually, Vince McMahon realized he was undefeated at Mania and they began to play off  the streak.  Vince has loved the character from the beginning and booked it in such a way that Taker was always strong.  That begat the streak.

If it were you, would you keep Brock Lesnar on the sidelines until 2013?

At this point what really matters is the Rumble and WrestleMania season. With Lesnar's dates clause, I think it makes more sense to just take the focus off him now and use his dates in the future more productively at a time when it matters the most.

Vince McMahon is pushing to see Rock vs. Cena at Wrestlemania 29 and everyone is mad at that because of once in a lifetime. But it's good business and I would think people would be happy to see Rock vs Cena again. Is it because we saw Rock vs. Hogan a second time and we got a bad match. They had a solid match. I would love to see it again. Would you and do you have a problem with a second match like the others?

First, Vince McMahon doesn't have to push anything.  What he says goes.  As for the match, if they have another one, I think it would be good.  My issue is that we have seen it before, plus WWE is so lacking on top guys I think it would make more sense to put Rock with CM Punk, Cena with someone else and Lesnar with someone else.  Then you have more matches that seem Mania-worthy.

I'm a big TNA fan. What do you believe will be the top two matches for Bound For Glory?

One thing you can count on with TNA is that the Title matters, so that match will be the main event.  At this point, I would bet that some form of TNA vs. Aces and 8s will be the other big bout.

Lately, we've been hearing about how HHH wants to make champions hold the belt longer, which makes them more credible. Great, that's an awesome idea. However, isn't that kind of counterproductive when the talent pool is so shallow? Look at Sheamus- since winning the title, he's feuded with ADR. Aside from a short go with Ziggler, nobody else has challenged for that title. Why should I think Sheamus is a decent champion if there are no legitimate threats to the title? At least when the belt changed hands more often, it seemed like there was more competition on the show, not just the champ picking over the same guy month in and month out.

I think if the belt flipped back and forth among guys that haven't been pushed properly it hurts the Title even more. I get your point, but their hope is that they are building a foundation with Sheamus.  I respect that line of thinking.
