People are very critical of WWE creative, but are there good examples of how creative has benefitted a wrestler?

Sure.  Just look at James Ellsworth.  They got him over.  Obviously, there are others too.

Do you expect the confrontation between Lesnar and Goldberg at the Royal Rumble will go down in a similar fashion to the 2003 Royal Rumble where Jericho attached HBK from behind eliminating him than HBK came back and caused Jericho to be eliminated?

I would hope not.  Attacking from behind would be weak in this scenario.  I think they should just have them pair off, fight and end up eliminating each other, then fight to the back.

Do you believe the Undertaker will have a World Title match at the Royal Rumble or Wrestlemania 33?

I hope not.  I am loving AJ Styles as the WWE Champion and I don’t see them putting him in with Taker and winning.  I love Taker too and want to see him work.  But he doesn’t need the Title.  Him wrestling is like a Title match in and of itself.  Part of WWE’s problem with losing audience is the reliance on older talents at the expense of the younger ones.  I don’t want to see that happen again.  There are plenty of great ways to use Taker.  They don’t need him in the Title picture.

The Wrestlemania 33 match you are desiring is ______.

A great show where the booking is so good that I can’t wait to the matches happen.

The Royal Rumble 2017 winner will be ____.

The man who doesn’t get thrown over the top rope and have his feet touch the floor.  Seriously, there are a few ways that they can go.  But without knowing for sure who the two champions will be, it’s hard to say.

Do you believe the New Day will drop the belts to the tag team of Cesaro and Sheamus?

Of the current crop of tag teams, they seem the best option.  I think New Day needs to lose soon as they are in danger of getting stale.  They never have to overcome anything.  They need some adversity.  After they break Demolition’s record, it’s time for them to drop the straps.
