Sorry if this has been asked before, but... have you heard that Brooke Hogan has gotten any heat for making her engagement public so quickly? She was in the middle of a very prominent story-line where she was married and there was a huge tease she was going to stay with Bully. I know that even though TNA is pushing "reality" nobody believes they were really married but still it would have been common courtesy to tell your employers first. Wouldn't the professional thing have been to tell her fiance to keep it between them for a short time, call her father and Eric Bischoff, let them end the story-line on the next Impact (have Bully grant the divorce, trick him into signing the paper, etc) and then go public? That seems like the professional -- and just plain decent -- thing to have done. Instead, she tweeted it to the world before TNA creative even knew that one of their major story-line was now dead and now have to somehow react.

She didn't that I have heard.  Basically, they look at it like she plays a part and what happens in the real world is just that, real.  TNA already incorporated it into the storyline.  And given the tenuous state of her fake marriage, they could play off of it a lot if they want to.

With the WWE now having their performance center in Florida and the fact Vince has a huge residence on the beach in Boca Raton Fla.(along with several other factors) Do you think they would ever move the company to Florida from Stamford?

At present, no.  There are definitely great tax reasons for moving to Florida but from an entertainment industry point of view, being near Manhattan is huge.  Plus, being so close to so many major markets is a big factor as well.  Plus, there would be a lot of relocation fees involved with moving as well.

So the Wyatt Family made their debut and I really really enjoyed it. My one thing I didn't enjoy about their debut was those idiot smarks, thinking their cool, chanting "Husky Harris". Yes anybody with the internet knew Bray Wyatt was once Husky Harris, but why ruin it? I read your site daily, but I can suspend my disbelief during RAW. These people claim they love wrestling, but yet try to expose it at any chance they get. I mean give the guy a break he could be something big. Most everybody on WWE has worked under a different name, should we now be chanting "Prototype", "Nicky" and "Yankem" next time Cena, Ziggler and Kane appear. These People are the worst thing that Wrestling had to offer.

The only question I saw was "why ruin it"?  The only possible answer I can think of is that they wanted to make themselves seem smart.  But in reality, they made themselves look like imbeciles.  I agree with you, they should have kept their piehole shut.

I've been watching old episodes of the WWF and WCW during the Monday Night Wars and when WCW announced Mick Foley was going to win the WWF Championship I heard many people say that it was the beginning of the end for WCW. Was it really the beginning of the end or was WCW already beginning to dig its own grave prior to that incident?

That was more of a symbolic moment.  Eric Bischoff thought that by announcing the title change (very condescendingly I might add), which the WWF had already taped, he would keep people from changing the channel to Raw.  Instead, they changed the channel en masse. But WCW was already sliding down the slope.  Bischoff took the nWo idea from Japan, but had no idea what to do with it after the initial run.  By not properly evolving the storyline, or coming up with any other good ones other than Bill Goldberg's undefeated run, plus the way that he spent ridiculous amounts of Time Warner's money, Bischoff had already poured the foundation for the end of WCW.  Too many people try to pin the end of WCW on Vince Russo but it was really Bischoff's lack of storylines and overspending that made the company a liability that needed to go when Time Warner merged with AOL.

I'm confused is WWE Saturday morning slam cancelled because it hasn't been on The CW for a while now?

It was part of the Saturday morning block on CW.  When their season ended in May, so did Saturday Morning Slam's.
