With the foregone conclusion that Cena is going to leave Mania with the title, where do they go from there?

That is a good question.  If he does indeed walk away with the WWE Title, I hope that it's being done to then have him lose it to someone else and put them over since Cena doesn't need it and him being a long-term champion will probably cause a backlash with at least part of the fan base.  Hey, I can hope WWE does the right thing can't I?

I know you gentlemen get plenty of "what ifs," but, in your opinions, what would be the fallout for WWE if, say, The Rock were to get severely injured, paralyzed (a la Darren Drozdov) or killed at Wrestlemania? I'm, of course, not wishing ill on anyone; but I recognize that what these athletes do in that ring is still incredibly dangerous and to hypothesize on such a case may be pessimistic, but not so unrealistic. What do you think would be the consequences of such a disaster at the industry's biggest show, to one of its top stars, with all the media attention glued to the situation? I'm a big fan of the site, by the way.

Wow, macabre much?  Owen Hart died falling to the ring in 1999 and Vince McMahon chose to continue on with the show.  My hunch is that as long as the show could go on, it would.  If it couldn't, it would stop.  Obviously if that happened at any show it would be a big news story.  Given that Rock is a movie star, it would be bigger.  Now that we have talked about it, let's go back to happier thoughts, like raising the debt ceiling and Iran trying to get nuclear missiles.

My question is how do other ticket place like stub hub and select a ticket able to have these tickets for sale while Ticketmaster isn't able to sell them? And how are they able to jack up the price 3 to 5 times higher then what ticket master has it for with fees?

If they have them it's because they were able to get them.  Perhaps they bought them at the box office or they got through when Ticketmaster was actually doing what it's supposed to do.  They can sell them for a higher price because they are resale sites.  It's perfectly legal.

What are the odds that Brock Lesnar be declared the force behind the Shield? It's logical saying that he wanted a medium to dominate the WWE main event scene without actually being made to appear. Also it can be shown that since Punk claims that he has no involvement with The Shield whatsoever, he is actually unaware that Brock-Paul have a secret pact with the Shield? This could lead to a major storyline between Punk vs Brock at mania since I feel Taker should retire now with the 20-0 record and not risk his health against the physically demanding competitors like Punk and Brock. Your thoughts.

The problem with that is that he chose to leave the company so why would he care?  And Brock is an asskicker.  I don't see why he would need a group to do things for him.  Heyman yes because the story could be he cares more about the WWE Title than anything, including Punk.  Brock, I don't see it.

Now that A&E have a heel announcer what are the chances they go the way of NWO get a heel ref?

NNNNNOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!  Aces and Eights are supposed to be ass kickers.  The last thing a group like that should have is a ref that cheats for them.
