If something was to happen to Vince McMahon tomorrow, who would be the next in the line of power?

I’ve always heard that Michelle Wilson would be, but with George Barrios accepting the position of co-President alongside Wilson, it would be those two in charge.  From a creative standpoint, it would be Triple H and Stephanie McMahon.

Are the Revival off the Elimination Chamber PPV because of an injury?

No, they worked last night' Raw live event.  No injuries, just a creative decision.

What’s going to happen on the dates WWE had PPVs scheduled that are no longer PPVs?

WWE has canceled those dates, so there won’t be any events in those markets that evening.

With the change in the WWE PPV schedule, is it time to call the Brand Split a failure yet?

No, I don’t think we can call it a failure.  The second they cancel the branded touring dates and begin mixing brands up on TV and live tours, it’s a failure.  What I really believe is behind the change is WWE trying to give WWE fans “more for their dollar” while cutting some production costs off their ledger, making the bottom line of the company looking even stronger to potential suitors.    I think this is a case of the company playing the long game more than anything else.

Is it possible these shows will be used as Network specials vs. PPVs instead?

Not likely.

Is this move coming more of a production move then creative? It seems it would ease stress off of Kevin Dunn’s team.

We are told this was a Vince McMahon call.
