My question is for Dave... ECW is known for using popular music as entrance songs. What do you think is the best ECW entrance theme song in the history of the company that matches the wrestler that used it. I'm partial to Natural Born Killaz, given that it's the wild gangsta song for New Jack, but also the heavy Perfect Strangers for Shane Douglas that I think matched his tough edge.

I liked The Gangstas entrance music a lot because it was usually accompanied by plunder and mayhem.  But I think the best song itself was Enter Sandman.

I was wondering why WWE hasn't used the Raw intro and pyro opening at all this year?

They decided to steal TNA's "last week on" gimmick and go with that.

Are you surprised that WWE hasn't celebrated the 50th anniversary of the formation of the WWWF since it is surely such an important part of the company's history?

Not really.  While the WWWF is what the company traces back to, in Vince's mind the company started when he took over.  So I can see why that would be the genesis to him.

So Rocky Johnson and Tony Atlas is known as the first African Americans to hold the WWE tag team titles and Ron Simmons the first African American to hold the NWA/WCW/World heavyweight title. My question is who was the first African American to hold the WWE title, if any?

The only man of African American heritage to hold the WWE Title was Rocky's son, The Rock. 

What happened to time limits for matches?

It is an outdated concept in WWE and TNA.  In WWE, they prefer to be a hybrid form of entertainment so the time limits aren't a big deal, especially when most matches don't go that long.  In TNA, they don't use it as a gimmick either.
