What do wrestlers do to stay hydrated when they scheduled to work long matches like iron man matches or matches in hot buildings?

They make sure to hydrate before the bouts.  They are in such good shape that they can go longer than the average person without a water break.  And honestly, a half hour isn’t all that long to do it, especially if you go into the match properly hydrated.

After watching 1990 Royal Rumble, I thinking how Hogan dominated the world title and main events from the early ‘80s to the mid ‘90s.  Since today’s WWE sees more people in main event positions, two world titles, and more title changes, apply today’s booking to the early ‘80s to the mid ‘90s roster.  Who do you think would get title  runs that didn’t previously?  

Off of the top of my head, Roddy Piper, Paul Ordorff, Curt Hennig and Ted DiBiase come to mind right off the bat.

Becky’s blood covered face and arms, the smile on her face from Monday Night Raw, do you think we’ve just seen the women’s version of Steve Austin’s bloody face at Wrestlemania 13. Whereas 1 visual can propel a wrestler to the next level. Also I know she already gets amazing reactions already but on Smackdown she acted slightly more like facelike but still a badass, do you think from Raw this was her Austin 3:16 moment? In your opinion was that moment from Raw the start of something special? I certainly hope so. 

It’s funny, I have been calling her the next Stone Cold for a while.  The fans got behind her when she bucked the system and bet on herself.  It very well could be that her bloody image on Raw was her version of Steve Austin refusing to give up in the Sharpshooter.  Good call!

I like the idea of brand vs.brand at Survivor Series, but when wrestlers suddenly care about brand supremacy - without a title shot or something else valuable on the line to entice them - it rings hallow to me. What if the winning brand gets the main event slot at the next year's Wrestlemania? To me, this accomplishes multiple things. First, it starts the Wrestlemania season earlier, while making the Survivor Series more important, as the new starting point of the WWE's most profitable season. Second, it's very believable that faces and heels on the same brand could put aside heat - to achieve the lifelong goal of main eventing Wrestlemania. Third, it makes perfect sense for the GMs to really care if their brand is featured in the main event slot at Wrestlemania. It seems logical and easy to implement. What do you think of this idea?

I like the idea of putting SOMETHING on the line.  Brand pride is just weak and wouldn’t be enough for a heel, who only cares about what affects them, suddenly becoming a team player.  I like the idea of putting something on the line and your suggestion is a good option.

With Alexa Bliss not able to wrestle due to concussions, etc..  can you see Stephanie making her a General manager?  It gives her a role while she recovers, and she might be perfect for the job?  Your thoughts please? 

I don’t like it.  We have already seen Paige been made the GM because her in-ring career is over.  That would be the connotation if they made Alexa the GM.  I prefer to just let her continue to do what she does while she heels. As long is she is going to return to action down the road, I don’t put her in the GM role.  I just let her keep doing what she has been doing.
