Why do you guys (and other fans) constantly bash WWE creative for not pushing some guy? Time to put the blame squarely where it belongs... ON THE WORKER. Alex Riley and Zack Ryder aren't pushed beyond your average worker because they have an average look, below average or average work rate and below average mic skills. Ezekiel Jackson and Mason Ryan have nothing going for them except having a good steroid dealer. True Story. If guys want to be pushed to the main event, they need to have the "it factor". None of the guys above have it. Take a look at HHH and The Miz. They were both buried for a long time and wouldn't you know it? They are still over. Cuz they have the whole package... look, in ring work and mic skills. When creative says they have nothing for you, its a nice way of saying you are lacking in one or more of those departments. Kind of like a girl saying "lets just be friends".

Sigh.  You don't know what Riley does or doesn't have because he has never been given the chance to show you.  And no one credible says that Ryder should be made main eventers.  What we are talking about is the way that WWE presents the talent.  In most cases, they tell you that they don't matter so as the fan, that is your perception of them.  Just because you say true story doesn't make it so.  What we complain about is that the workers aren't presented as being important and thus they are no taken as being important.  Also, in the case of Ryder and Riley, they got unexpectedly over with fans.  What we say is that WWE should have embraced that and taken it wherever it went.  Instead, they killed the push of both guys.  If you don't see that as an issue, you need to expand your view of the business.  True story.

In your opinion. Do you think Lesnar will renew his contract with the WWE?

I honestly don't have an opinion on that one yet.  It's too soon to say what will happen. But if I had to guess I would say if they offer him another year on a similar deal, he will.  It's a sweet gig.

What do you think about the outcome of the Cena/Punk-match at Night of Champions? Will WWE let Cena win and take the belt, duplicating the home town win from CM Punk last year? Or will they even let Punk win in Cena's house and let him take the belt? I prefer the second outcome but I have huge fears, that Punk's reign is over.

 You know, I would say that I am scared that they will put the belt back on Cena but since he has been main eventing all of the PPVs without it, maybe they will spare us and keep it off of him.  I can hope anyway.

Any word from anyone in WWE about how they are gonna go forward with the WWF scratch logo situation on Will they replace all of their media on their website that currently has the blur/muting?

Going forward they will use it where they can.  I don't know that it's a priority to spend time going back and cleaning up old pages but it wouldn't shock me if they do it over time.

Will Ric Flair end up like Mickey Rourke's character in The Wrestler?

I think he has enough friends in the right places that he won't have to actually die in the ring while trying to make a living.  The word has been for a while that WWE will hire him back and that will probably happen.  But certainly his life's story isn't the happy one that it, in my opinion, should have been.
