Which direction do you think SummerSlam is going, Brock vs. Roman again or Braun cashing in for a triple threat?

If it was me, I’d go with Seth vs. Brock with Braun cashing in during the bout.  I can see Roman being in the slot that I think Seth should be in, however.

Why are the guys from 205 live not appearing on Raw anymore?

It was a decision made when Triple H took over as the showrunner of the 205 Live series as a way to keep the talents from being overexposed and to make sure they were kept in a position where they were protected.  It was part of the company's strategy of trying to change the perception of the Cruiserweight division.

How come guys from Impact are allowed to work companies with nationally broadcasted TV shows? You see Aries working ROH & MLW; along with Callihan & Konnan?

Impact allows that because they simply can’t afford to pay the talents a full-time salary that keeps them exclusive to Impact and Impact alone.  So, the talents work wherever they want, making sure Impact has the priority for TV taping dates.  Until Impact Wrestling is in a different financial position, that’s how its going to be.

Impact has been pushing the Slammiversary PPV for the last several weeks. Does anyone still buy their PPVs?

While they are not likely to draw WWE-level numbers, obviously someone is buying them.

Why does Jim Cornette piss so many people off?

Some people don’t like the truth.  Some don’t like hearing things they don’t agree with.  Some just assume he doesn’t know what he’s talking about and some, he likes to piss off.  I think that covers it.
