Only one question: I write from Italy, is there a way to see legally Double or Nothing? 

Yes! They announced on 5/17 that it will be available on the FITE app outside of the US.

It's been said that Vince McMahon doesn't listen to Triple H as much as he does with WWE Executive Producer Kevin Dunn. Whenever Dunn is very high on a Superstar, then McMahon would push that said Superstar over Triple H's pet project. Thoughts?

It's been said by who?  In any event, Vince is the final say on who does or doesn't get pushed. Dunn is most focused on the presentation of the product.  Obviously, we can see what Triple H sees in talents when he is booking them and talking about them during their time in NXT.  When they get to the main roster, it's in Vince's hands.

When WWE cancels a house show does that affect the wrestlers contracts at all?

It would affect their house show bonus, which is usually given at the company's discretion.

Do people even buy WWE PPVs now with WWE network available?

Yes, amazingly some people still do buy them.  In some cases I get it, they don't have good high speed internet.  But if they do, I have no idea why someone would overpay for a PPV.

Looking at the Killer Kross situation I can understand Impact’s position.  They have nurtured a star and now he ungratefully wants to go and do his own thing elsewhere.  But isn’t it worth him looking at EC3 who went from being very much the rising star of Impact to be a whipping boy in the WWE?  Surely it’s better to be a big fish in a small pond than vice versa? 

First off, when someone signs a contract, they have to realize they will be held to it.  It may not always seem fair, but that’s the price you pay when you sign the deal, you give the other side control.  As for EC3 and others, you have to believe in yourself.  If you want to reach the pinnacle, that means betting on yourself and going to WWE.  It doesn’t always work out, but that’s life.
