With the current bad press Dixie Carter and TNA has been getting lately for the budget firings, declining ratings, etc. Do you think it would be a good idea if Dixie Carter were to become a on camera heel? It worked for Vince Mcmahon, when he became the on-screen character people perceived him to be.

God no, the last thing we need is another heel character that doesn't take bumps on a wrestling show. I hardly ever want to see someone that doesn't take bumps get heat on guys that do.

I have never been a big fan of Cody Rhodes. I have to give him big props. His promo as he was leaving RAW was great. Best he has ever been on the mike. I hope this whole HHH emasculating wrestlers angle leads to elevating the guys he is singling out (D Bryan, Ziggler, Rhodes, Big Show), otherwise is there really any point to it? Also, why is it that CM Punk comes out and does not acknowledge the situation. Isn't he the guy who is supposed to be outspoken, doing shoot promos and dropping pipe bombs?

You are right on the money. If HHH doesn't get his and really sell for the guys, especially Bryan, this who thing will suck the life out of Bryan's push. Punk isn't booked into the storyline. It's a time honored tradition that WWE ignores logic and past events when it doesn't suit their purposes.

I know Vince thinks he is doing "what's best for business" in his vision of the WWE Title picture but do you think if the fans lost interest in Daniel Bryan he would be at all upset or realize the mistake he made in not giving Daniel at least a 24 hour reign or would he just chalk it up to Daniel not keeping their interest?

I can't speak for him but if they do blow this and it hurts Bryan, Vince would be a hypocrite if he didn't take the blame for the storyline. Creative starts and ends with him. He gets the credit when it's good so he has to take the blame when it's bad.

I seem to remember that someone a few months asked why Randy Orton isn't WWE champion and you reply was maybe its because they are scared of him getting a 3rd strike from the Wellness Program. What changed? Why do you think they trust him now?

I said that COULD be it. But as I have also said, WWE doesn't have to announce the failings in real time. If he were to fail, they could do their storyline to get the Title off of him before they announce it.

With TNA not being completely secure financially and having to release great talents I have to ask, aren't Hogan and Bischoff millionaires? Why aren't they helping put the company by donating a couple million instead of letting Dixie and her family go broke? I'm sure with how much the two of them have made in the last 20 years they could lose a bit to help their current company, thoughts?

First off, Dixie's family is fine. They are not going broke. I don't know where you got that. And as much as I don't think Bischoff and Hogan are needed in TNA, to ask anyone to work for free is ridiculous. I think TNA should look long and hard at how much they make and decide if it is worth the company to keep them. To me it comes down to this: Are they worth what we are paying them?
