The WWE Network is advertised as being available in Canada but it actually only available in 2 or 3 provinces in Canada and the rest are not able to get it. I was wondering if that it the same in the other countries they say it's available in?

Canada is all alone there. Elsewhere, it's an over the top, internet based network. In Canada, it is available only via cable, through Rogers. They have said they will try to work deals with the other carriers. In the interim, you can access the Network via a VPN service.

Just wondering if you think SummerSlam would've played out the same way with the main event being a squash if Daniel Bryan was still healthy/champ or if it was done because they were using Cena as an "interim champ"?

Given how WWE pushed Bryan after he won the belt at WrestleMania, I just didn't see them protecting him. I could definitely have seen him meeting a similar fate against Brock.

I'm sure it won't happen but what are the odds of Cena beating Brock and tying Flair's record at (coincidentally enough) Night of Champions?

I wish I was sure it won't happen. Given the way they have booked Cena as Superman, I have my concerns. With that said, I will say the odds are better that Brock retains than loses the belt.

Am I the only person who thinks it’s a bad move to send Dean Ambrose off to film a movie when he’s in the middle of what has so far been a great feud with Seth Rollins?

No, you sure aren't. The problem with the studio and WWE doing movies is exactly what you mention above, a guy in a hot feud has to leave TV for a while. Hopefully it won't be long.

With the question yesterday about WWE not needing to buy out TNA contracts, why didn't this happen with WCW contracts? Was it because the contracts were technically with Turner? I can't imagine they didn't have clauses indicating that if Turner were to decide to shut down WCW, that they would still owe the talent the remainder of the money due.

WCW was bought out by the WWF, meaning they got the assets that WCW had (which included contracts). WCW didn't go bankrupt and then out of business. They were an asset that was purchased and WWF got to choose which contracts they wanted to pick up. The contracts that didn't transfer were the ones that Kevin Nash, Goldberg, Sting etc had with Turner itself. They were not a WCW asset.
