I have to admit I couldn't stop laughing at Vince's wardrobe on the New Year's Eve edition of Raw, he does realize that we are no longer in the 70's & & 80's your thoughts?

Judging by his booking, sometimes I wonder, I really do.

Are we ever going to see a new WWE championship? I'm sick and tired of seeing the current championship title. Make the title seem like a joke to me.

They actually had the belt made a while ago and CM Punk was supposed to debut it but it never happened.  So, sooner or later I see them getting rid of that hideous piece of junk.

Do you think Shawn Michaels was trying to make fun of Hulk Hogan at Summerslam 2005 when selling Hogan's moves or do you think he was genuinely trying to make Hogan look good?

I think it's fair to say he did the best he could with what he had to work with.  Now the Raw when he shot on Hogan for being selfish and not agreeing to do a real program with him?  Yeah, he was punking out Hogan then.

In a scene from "Beyond the Mat", Vince McMahon asks Jim Cornette to "get me a tape" of the dark match between Mike Modest and Tony Jones. I assume this was done for the sake of the camera & doubt Vince really watches tape of dark matches, since he has others to that for him. Thoughts?

He definitely has people that watch all of those bouts but if someone impresses, sure he will want to see those guys for himself.

Hi there! Love this column.....anyway, I know WWE, when seeing the ratings, can tell viewership versus delayed viewership thanks to DVRs, but can they see specifically when in a show someone were to fast forward through to ignore? If they can do you think Vince cares about that at all? Or just the overall rating?

They can definitely tell when the viewer changes channels during live viewing but I have never heard that Nielsen can track what a viewer FFs through.  They just track what show was recorded and it's added to the overall audience.  As for Vince, since WWE doesn't get a piece of the ad money they aren't overly concern by ads getting skipped.  USA on the other hand is less than happy about that.
