Watching Kurt Angle try to stop Samos Joe from getting to Brock Lesnar got me thinking how exciting it would be to see Kurt Angle vs. Samoa Joe vs. Brock Lesnar. That sounds like a Wrestlemania match to me. Do you think the WWE would even consider it?

If it made sense to them they would.  I don’t know that with Kurt’s neck ever needs to work a match with Brock though.  I would rather have him in a safer environment.

Why does the WWE hotshot angles that make no money? I didn't like how they broke up The Shield after they dominated Evolution but at least that feud elevated each star to the main event scene. They telegraphed the Rockers split for how long and still blew our minds when they actually did split. They had a long history to build off from. But splitting Enzo and Cass makes no sense to do so soon. Cass really didn't prove himself when he had a singles run. He could have benefitted from Enzo as a mouthpiece and had them both turn heel. They could have built their camaraderie up only to split them with more emotion. The way they did it seemed so forced. If they were going to hot shot the angle and really get fans into it, they should have done it during Enzo's injury. I just don't get WWE creative at all. Thoughts?

I disagree one hundred percent.  Cass has grown past working in a tag team with Enzo and as long as they were a pair, Cass is a mid card act.  This angle played out over weeks, which means it was not hot shot.  They also even set up a back story, which made it more interesting.  I disagree with you on this one.

The sound of the superkick. It always sound like a slap. Is that really the actual sound of it?

Well, unless the guy screws up and really kicks the other guy, yes.  It’s usually a slap to the chest or leg of the guy doing the kick.

Did Hideo Itami's bleed by mistake or was it staged? When things like that happen, does the other wrestler get any heat backstage for being careless?

That was an accident for sure.  Sometimes when working stiff there are accidents.  I didn’t hear of any heat on Lorcan for it.

What exactly is an explosion match?

It is a match that has a time limit and when the time runs out if one wrestler didn’t pin the other, the ring “blows up”.  It is a stunt but it looks cool.
