Why didn't the 2002 Survivor Series feature a traditional elimination match?

WWE had gotten away from doing a card of Survivor Series matches, sometimes only having one or two Survivor matches at the PPV.  In the case of 2002, they didn't do a traditional elimination match and instead introduced a new concept, the Elimination Chamber, won by Shawn Michaels.

Why wasn't The Undertaker a part of WrestleMania 2000?

Undertaker had been sidelined with a groin injury and a torn pectoral muscle for part of 1999 and 2000.  He was out for almost 8 months, his longest time away from the ring.  When he returned, he debuted the "American Badass" persona.

How long has TNA been around?  I just found it odd that all of there press releases end with the below information, and of all the wrestlers listed, only AJ styles is the non former WWE name listed.  Is it me or is that a clear sign they are not doing things correctly?

TNA has been around since June 2002.  The fact they only have one "home grown" talent in their press release just shows what a great emphasis the company has put on recruiting former WWF, ECW and WCW stars.  I'm wondering how they can have "Medalist" misspelled!

What are the chances of seeing any of these wrestlers returning/participating in the WWE 2011 Royal Rumble PPV? Undertaker, Christian, Chris Jericho, and Triple H.

I'd say there is a good chance of Triple H being there, and if Christian is 100%, he could show up.  I would say Undertaker and Jericho being in the Rumble is unlikely.

Do you see Vickie Guerrero inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame any time in the distant future? After all she's been around for a couple of years now and still draws the audience's disfavor.

Distant future, sure.  Near future, no.  While she has been a great character for the company, there are a lot of names that should go in first.  Besides, her career only began in the past decade.  WWE has a lot of performers from previous decades that need to be inducted.
