A few years ago I asked you if you thought that Cesaro will unfortunately go down in history as one of the best performers to never win a world title a la Hot Rod, Ricky Steamboat, Mr Perfect. What's your assessment now? He’s the only guy whose matches I never skip through because he always impresses. He doesn’t do stupid stuff like sell an injured knee and then jump off the top rope or sell an injured arm and then keep going for clothes lines or punch the floor (Rollins and Reigns - if you hadn’t guessed). He just seems to have the ring psychology that so many other lack. Your thoughts?

I don’t hate Roman Reigns like you seem to (and frankly don’t understand why so many people do) but I do love Cesaro.  His work is great.  With that said, you mentioned some great all time names that also didn’t get the belt.  Cesaro is great as well but what it comes down to is whether the boss sees him as THE guy.  Whether hardcore fans want to see it or not, Vince McMahon looks for more than just whether a guy is awesome in the ring or not when he decides who will be THE guy.  There is still time left so we can just wait and see what happens.

I know that watching WWE wrestling requires a certain amount of the suspension of belief, but I think that this week's Raw really pushed it, and made it hard. C'Mon now...big 'ol Nia Jax...interested in little Enzo? With his personality? Really? I just can't buy it.  And then Strowman runs Kane through a barricade, and even though he is on top, and never really hit anything, he couldn't get up in time for the bell? And then he slams Kane through a table, and gets up from that like nothing happened? If there is any sense in any of that, I must have missed it.

You can’t buy it?  Why not?  I have seen tons of couples in my life that I would have never predicted would end up together.  That isn’t a big deal to me.  As for Strowman vs. Kane, it’s a story where a guy has been mashed in a trash truck.  You can’t expect logic.

When WWE held its annual Tribute To The Troops special, the women competed in Santa's Little Helpers matches during the Divas Era. But now that the indie wrestler has pretty much replaced the model when it came to hiring female talents, they stopped doing Santa's Little Helper matches (or Halloween Costume contests and bikini contests for that matter). Will we ever see those matches again in the WWE in the very near future?

God, I hope not.  I hated those matches.  I much prefer women actually wrestling instead of being treated like eye candy.

Now that Dolph Ziggler is back to using his standard entrance and song, what was the point of him first imitating other wrestlers' entrances, then cutting off his own entrance and coming out to no music, video, or lights?  Nothing really came out of the whole thing as far as I can tell.

That is the story of his life.  Remember when he put his career on the line and won?  Then went back to losing again?  They book him really, really badly.  There is no rhyme or reason to it.

So, WWE has managed to get a TV deal in South Korea. Fantastic! It is good to see them expand. My question is, since Rodman has history with Hogan in WCW and a link to Kim Jong Un, how long until the  WWE has a TV deal with North Korea? 

I am going to guess that it will be before you find something more useful to do with your time than sending questions like this.  I don’t think either will happen any time soon.
