I was surprised that Piper, Flair, and Nash were all involved in Hogan's birthday segment on Raw, since Piper and Nash recently had a Twitter war re-hashing a backstage fight from years back. Was there any concern about getting all of them together? Is it safe to say they've buried the hatchet and moved on?

They are all pros, and older to boot. That stuff gets thrown out the window when it's time to earn a pay day. Plus, they are grown men. They are not going to throw down unless a very extreme situation were to happen.

Any chance WWE inducts Arsenio Hall into the hall of fame at some point? I remember growing up in the early 90’s Arsenio had everyone on his show from Hulk Hogan, the Ultimate Warrior, Ravishing Rick Rude, Macho Man Randy Savage and so on and it gave the WWE a lot of main stream exposure. Your thoughts?

I guess there is a chance, if they can't find a bigger name to induct. I am not the biggest Arsenio fan so I am probably the wrong guy to ask.

What's going on with Cesaro? After winning the Andre the Giant Battle Royal he seemed primed for a face turn but they keep him heel. Then he's with Paul Heyman for a few weeks before dropping him. Lately, he's been losing matches and the crowd doesn't seem behind him as they once were. Do you see this as creative dropping the ball and how can they fix this?

That is a great question, one no one seems to be able to answer. They have destroyed his booking since WrestleMania and no one seems to have a good reason why. Obviously it starts with Vince McMahon so for whatever reason Vince is not behind pushing Cesaro at this time. I thought they should have ran with him getting over as a babyface when they had the chance, but Vince didn't want to do that. I think it's a missed opportunity.

Do you see the WWE ever getting away from the face vs. heel format in favor of great matches? I mean Hogan/Warrior, Rock/Cena, Rock/Austin were all basically face/face matches. Sure the crowds were behind one more than the other but the matches were epic. It seems like the WWE are keeping talent down (Kofi Kingston, Cesaro, Big E, etc) in order to push a heel or face to go against the opposite at a pay per view.

As long as Vince McMahon is in charge, no I don't. He likes the structure of the business just the way it is. Occassionally we will get a face vs. face match but most of the time we will get the old formula.

In the history of entrance music for wrestlers is there any one entrance you cannot stand? Is there one that is your favorite? Also is there one that really clicks with the wrestler?

There were a lot that I like, too many to pick one as my favorite. And there were many that fit the guy perfectly. Steve Austin's glass breaking, Enter Sandman for The Sandman and The Gangstas Natural Born Killaz come to mind. They have been some less than good entrances but I wouldn't go so far as to say I couldn't stand them.
