It's been said that although Vince McMahon and Kevin Dunn are huge fans of such matches as pillow fights, pudding matches, Halloween costume contests, Santa's Little Helpers matches, bikini contests and other sexy Divas matches, Triple H and Stephanie McMahon are apparently not fans of those matches. With that being said, who do you think was responsible for discontinuing those matches?

The focus of the Women and what their role is on Raw has changed.  Stephanie McMahon and Triple H have a lot to do with that.  At the end of the day, the final decision is Vince’s. 

Let's say that Finn Balor wins at the elimination chamber, how would you book Balor Vs. Lesnar at Wrestlemania given the size difference?

Both men have worked with guys that were the opposite of them and it’s not hard to book a bout like that.  Brock could ram the post or miss a big spot, allowing Finn to have a chance.  With that said, I don’t see Finn winning.

Also, if Finn doesn't win, could he not get into the match by arguing that he never lost the title in the first place and never did get his rematch. I mean he's been back for a while now and hasn't mentioned it?

He did make mention of it on a promo a while back.  Anything can be booked, but that would be really weak in my opinion.  For one thing, he has been back a LONG time, so he should have done it already.  He has also gotten to compete in two matches where he could have won the shot.  Trying to get in on a loophole would be lame if they did it now.

There has been talk within the whole "women's revolution" about the possibility of one day having the women headlining Wrestlemania.  After the ending we got to the Royal Rumble, which is a major, major show in the wrestling world, suddenly the idea doesn't sound so far-fetched.  Do you see the women headlining Wrestlemania within the next several years?  I ask this because they have a legitimate megastar who brings a ton of mainstream coverage signed for the next several years in Ronda Rousey, and if they decide to go that route having a women's match go on last at Mania, do you think they would be crazy to not involve Rousey in that match?

I could see it happening if the right scenario unfolded, as it did at the Rumble.  If the women are in the hottest program, there is no reason that they shouldn’t headline the show in my opinion and I believe WWE management feels the same way.

Is it common knowledge within WWE that we all know Roman Reigns will be the first to kick out of the F5 for ages and will pin Brock Lesnar to win the Universal Title in the main event of WrestleMania - and have known this for months?  I know Vince McMahon doesn’t care if everyone realises as that’s the match and result he wants but it’s laughable that so many people have known this for so long.

It is common knowledge that it’s been the direction that they were going in, yes.  With that said, it’s not a done deal until it happens.  And sometimes the obvious thing is still the right thing to do.  Vince doesn’t care of the hardcore fans know exactly what is coming.  He always says that he doesn’t market to you (but he will gladly take your money).
