Why is it that WWE hasn't fired JBL yet?

What are they going to fire him for?  Incidents that happened a decade ago that Justin Roberts detailed?  Beating up Blue Meanie in 2005?   They aren't going to penalize JBL for things that they were aware of that they didn't penalize him for when they happened.  Before you bring up Mauro Ranallo, at the end of the day, all we have to go on that is what Bas Rutten wrote on Twitter.  It's a third-party mentioning that he wants to run into JBL.  As of this writing, no one really knows what happened between JBL and Mauro except JBL and Mauro and thus far, neither have commented.  Mauro likely never will as if I am WWE, I am giving him a settlement to insure his silence.  WWE isn't going to fire JBL over an announcer who is obviously exiting.  The reality is that JBL is well liked by the biggest power brokers in the company, so he's going to be safe and secure there, unless something ends up revealed to the public that causes widespread scorn in the media and/or with WWE corporate powers.

What do you think of the way WWE has handled the JBL/Mauro situation especially with the announcer trade?  They could have easily traded JBL for Corey Graves considering that Graves has to be there on Tuesday's for 205Live anyways.  Mauro could have easily come back to his role and not deal with JBL.  

They already knew Mauro wasn't coming back.

How do you feel about a Women's Money In The Bank match?

As long as they give it a good storyline reason, there's no reason they can't do one.

What are the odds of WWE buying the Fight Network?

I don't see why they would, considering they have their on Network already.

Any chance of Sabu in WWE anytime soon?

I don't think so.  Sabu recently had a hip replacement surgery and continues to be quite a maverik.  I don't think he was happy working for WWE at the end of the day, which is why he pretty much got himself fired.
