Following The Miz’s failure to catch R-Truth on Monday, does the WWE have some sort of disciplinary system in place for this or is backstage heat usually enough to make the talent realize their actions aren’t acceptable?
When a worker messes up to the extent The Miz did on Monday night, they will hear about it. If something like this happens at a live event, the producers will talk with the worker about it and if it’s bad enough, will report back to upper management. Triple H met with The Miz backstage about the spot with R-Truth on Monday and wasn’t happy about it. As far as disciplinary systems are concerned, it depends on the incident. Mistakes can hurt a worker’s status and can alter the way they are booked. It could be something as simple as doing a couple of jobs or as serious as dropping a title.
Are there plans to have a guest host at Wrestlemania XXVIII this year like The Rock did for Wrestlemania XXVII last year?
There was talk during the NBA lockout of bringing in LeBron James to guest host Wrestlemania XXVIII this year as WWE has been interested in him for years. When the lockout ended so did the plans and WWE began negotiations with Shaquille O’Neal to do a possible celebrity bout with Big Show. It appears that is the direction they are going in with a mainstream celebrity but there could always be someone else added for the guest host role.
What type of relationship does The Rock have with Yokozuna where he will potentially be inducting him into the WWE Hall of Fame this year?
Yokozuna’s real name was Rodney Agatupu Anoaʻi – he was a member of the famous Anoaʻi family and was cousins with The Rock. As of yesterday the rumored plan was for The Rock to induct Yokozuna posthumously into the WWE Hall of Fame, however, he has not been officially announced.
Do you think John Cena is being hid in the background too much before Wrestlemania due to his big match with The Rock; to some fans it appears WWE are making him appear weak?
I haven’t been a fan of John Cena’s program with Kane but everything that has happened is going to play a role in the direction WWE is going to go in with his character while feuding with The Rock. Cena won’t be in the background much longer as he’ll be front row and center with The Rock advertised for numerous editions of Raw Supershow’s heading into their Wrestlemania XXVIII main event.
