I have a question about Randy Orton and would like to know your opinion. I know he prefers working in a heel-role as he has publicly stated this more than once, but isn't he actually more suited to work as a face? The last time he did, he was arguably the 2nd most over guy on the roster (Bryan obviously being the first) The fans give him a mixed reaction as a heel anyway and his in-ring style seems to be connect much better with the audience when he can kick into a higher gear, which doesn't seem hard for him (given that he is an excellent worker, in my opinion). Shouldn't WWE at least rethink letting him stay the bad guy, maybe not immediately (frequent turns usually don't do the wrestlers any favors either) but in the not so far future?

Personally, I think he is better as a heel. It plays more into his personality.

I get this feeling that only a short time ago Sheamus was almost destined for the spot that now being groomed for Roman Reigns. Now he's wading around with the US title. Your thoughts please?

Much like Cesaro, Sheamus is a guy I think they have dropped the ball with. It started when he was losing matches and saying it was no big deal. How can you take a guy seriously if he doesn't care if he wins or loses?

So I understand storyline says revenge on Seth Rollins means more to Dean Ambrose than a title shot, so the stipulation isn't winner gets the briefcase (although they seemed to tease it when Rollins said he will walk out of Summerslam with the briefcase, which is most meaningful for him.) But if Dean wants to trap Seth, why not a cage match? Does he forget the lumberjacks pissed about being beat up by the Shield will be just as mad at Dean since he was part of the Shield? Is there a good reason for lumberjack instead of cage match or is it merely a production thing?

Why? Because Dean didn't actually pick the stipulation. I agree with you, there are a bunch of other stipulations, including the ones that you mentioned, that would have made more sense from a logic standpoint.

I've just seen the Dixie through the table episode of Impact!, and I'm a little confused as to why the locker room would pour out to aid Bully Ray. Even Mr. Anderson who was supposed to be in a heated rivalry with Bully over the demise of Aces & Eights gave him a hug at ringside. Please what's your take on this?

The story was that despite whatever issues they have with each other, they have more heat with Dixie and the way she ran the company.

Please keep in mind that I am not advocating for this, but: Do you think it's within the realm of possibility that WWE would release Jerry Lawler because of budget cuts? I ask this because he only does Monday nights, whereas JBL does Raw and Smackdown. I know WWE is awaiting the Memphis collection once Jerry gets it together, but I think a three man team is too much. I hate for anyone to lose their job, but I feel this one is coming somewhere down the line. If Jim Ross is not safe, hell, if Mark Yeaton is not safe....

I can't compare Lawler to a timekeeper. I think in business, almost no one is completely safe so sure it could happen, but as one of the voices of the product, I don't see him being let go. He is very important to the product and its presentation.
