Will HHH ever retire from ringside to do corporate side of WWE?

He already has a lot of corporate duties and it is in part why he works the limited schedule that he does.  At some point, yes he will probably be a full time executive.  But that doesn't mean he can't make appearances, like his father-in-law has for years.

How involved is Eric Bischoff with the current TNA product obviously it's less than when he was with WCW due to his other projects that he is currently involved with but does he have any influence or say in their current storylines and if so how much?

He is an upper level executive.  He has a great relationship with Spike TV and definitely has influence on the product.  He is not part of the day-to-day writing of the shows, but he definitely has influence on what they do as a company.

After Jerry Lawler's heart attack do you think WWE will even entertain the idea of taking a chance and allowing Jake Roberts to compete in the 2014 Royal Rumble especially with the chronicled history of his past drug and alcohol problems?

Jake is a definitely a loaded question for them, even if you don't consider Lawler.  I kind of see using him as high risk, low reward.  It would get a nice pop and all, but given his history I think they would err on the side of caution and avoid using him.  That is just a guess however.

Did I notice you calling Brock Lesnar interesting? The only thing he has to maintain his relevance is the amazing mic skills of Paul Heyman. If left on his own, Lesnar is as dull as week-old toast, a one-gimmick pony with a limited move arsenal. What separates someone like John Cena from Lesnar is that Cena doesn't talk like a 5-year-old who just inhaled helium. I appreciate your service and analysis.

So you are saying that John Cena just talks like a five year old, period?  Is so, I agree with you.  If you find John Cena promos interesting however, we are on opposite sides.

When Brock Lesnar invaded WWE headquarters he looked at The Rock Royal Rumble poster and smiled. That was the subtle tease to set up for a Brock vs. Rock match most likely. So does that mean Rock has agreed to wrestle and it's just being kept on the down low or does it mean that WWE at least has enough faith in The Rock that he will wrestle again?

It is too soon to say what Rock will do.  Him getting hurt at WrestleMania is something that the movie studios noticed and may very well not agree to let him do going forward.  Or he may decide he doesn't want to do it. WWE wanted to start an angle with Brock and Rock at the Raw after WrestleMania.  They hope they can still do it, but it's still up in the air.
