So, doesn't John Cena have nerve problems in his back that he can't tell when he's pinned? Only kidding, but at Night of Champions he executed a move where he knew he was pinned, was only hoping that CM Punk was also pinned, and then acted like he'd won the belt. So assuming it's not back problems, and that he actually understands the rules of wrestling, I can only conclude his was disingenuously pretending he won in a cynical attempt to convince the ref. Like when a receiver traps the football and tries to act like he caught it, hoping the ref won't have seen that it wasn't a legal catch. Actually, come to think of it, why did John's music play? The ref didn't signal that he'd won. It seems the ring announcer and music guy just seem to act of their own accord, without waiting for instructions on the referee's decision. It seems like people are often tricked into thinking they've won by the music guy.

Honestly, I think you put more thought into it than WWE creative did.  Then again, that could probably be said about most of their storylines.

I was wondering what you thought about WWE bringing back their old school House Show promos to help possibly boost ticket sales?? With new shows like Saturday Morning Slam & Main Event, there's more platforms to get these across to viewers. I remember they used to run during commercial breaks & have the Wrestlers cut promos about what town they were gonna be at & discuss the match, making it have a big time feel.

The problem with doing that is that today's shows are nationally shown whereas back in the old days, they could put localized promos into the markets where the shows were running that weekend.  So instead they use the storylines that they run on TV to push the feuds.  And to be honest, back when they were hot they had no problems selling out house shows.  It all comes down to the creative.

Where does WWE keep all of the old sets, rings, etc? Do they ever sell any of them? Along the same lines, I have seen some WCW stuff for sale, but am curious what happened to the rest of it such as the PPV banners that used to hang in the Power Plant. Thanks and keep up the great work!

WWE generally keeps all of their stuff.  All of their gimmicks are taken to TV every week via tractor trailer.  They have a fleet of tractors that take their gimmicks around the country.  They also store thing in Connecticut.  I have no idea what happened to the old WCW stuff.

I've been thinking for a while now that Eric Bischoff is behind aces and eights. After seeing Garrett stare down Hogan on Impact recently I have a horrible feeling both Bischoffs will be back on our prime time segment screens again shortly. Please tell me I'm wrong?

Stu and I talked about that on our show last Friday.  That would be the worst possible choice that they could make in my opinion.  Bischoff has been so overexposed it's pitiful.  We don't need him leading the group.  We need a wrestler, you know the guys that actually go in the ring and work!  With that said, I share your fear.  I won't say you are wrong because if I did, Bischoff would probably lobby to be the leader just to spite me.

Clubhouse???? And we give the E crap for going PG.... The only thing missing was a secret knock, a rope ladder and Momma A&8 bringing cookies and juice. Do you see stuff like that as cutting the head off the leader before they even announce it?

They hate girls too!  I agree, it's really goofy.  It seems like the only stuff lately in TNA that is dopey involves Hulk Hogan.  I don't think that is a coincidence.
