With NXT working with EVOLVE, does WWE have a financial interest in WWNLive?

They don’t have any ownership stake in WWNLive.  They work with EVOLVE where it benefits them.

Where's Lars Sullivan?

He is dealing with some personal issues.  From what I have been told WWE is giving him all of the time that he needs to do so.

At this point we all know where Vince McMahon wants the cruiserweight matches on PPV's, and that is not on the PPV's but on the kickoff shows, even though the cruiserweight matches are often better than many of the matches on the main PPV's.  I don't see Vince budging regarding keeping the cruiserweights on the kickoff shows, so what do you think it would take for him to change his mind?

I think it would take something really big, like USA asking WWE to make a Raw or Smackdown focus on the Cruisers and then have it do a big rating.  Vince doesn’t tend to change his mind on talents once he makes his decision on them.

Naomi and Jimmy Uso had good showings at the Elimination Chamber show, with the Usos even winning the tag championships.  Are you surprised there was no heat on either of them following their traffic incident?  Did they receive any repercussions or admonishment by management backstage?

I don’t have any issue with Naomi being pushed.  She made a mistake and drove her car down the road the wrong way.  It happens.  I did think it sends a bad message putting the tag belts on the Usos though.  I don’t know what happened when they got pulled over but no matter what did, Jimmy can’t be getting out of the car and confronting a police officer.  Even if the officer was being disrespectful to his wife (and I am NOT saying that happens), doing what Jimmy did reflects poorly on himself WWE.  He has to know better than to do that.  I don’t know if he was talked to or not by management but I would think it’s fair to assume that he was.

So...did we not see a week or so ago that the Hart Foundation (Bret Hart and Jim Neidhart) were going to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame?  Were they not announced as the first inductees?  Then why were they replaced by DX?  Any thoughts on this? 

We have confirmed that they will be inducted but WWE has not announced them yet.
