Is WWE holding off on who will be in the 12-man tag match because they are waiting until the last moment to see if guys like Rey Mysterio, Alberto Del Rio and Christian will be able to compete? Also, what do you think the chances are of Evan Bourne competing in the match?
Every name you mentioned has been linked to the 12-man tag team match at Wrestlemania XXVIII in some fashion. One of the names you mentioned was confirmed at last night’s Smackdown taping but I don’t want to spoil it here. To read happened at last night’s taping, click here.
After about a month off television, Brodus Clay comes back and that’s what we get? Really?! The character is running it’s course pretty quickly with no real direction. So what, if anything, is next for the Funkasaurus? He’s got to feud with someone, right?
This is how WWE builds a new gimmick, they put it over in squash matches to gauge crowd reactions. How the crowd reacts will determine where the gimmick goes from there. Brodus Clay wasn’t randomly pulled from TV, there were circumstances regarding the decision which I discussed in yesterday’s Ask WNW. It’s basically “take two” on Brodus Clay so forget everything that happened before this week and we’ll see where it goes from here.
With The Undertaker wearing a hood on Monday’s Raw Supershow is he really bald?
The Undertaker shaved his head last year and his hair had not grown out long enough. WWE had him return in a wig but it looked really bad. The hood has been used since the terrible wig and I don’t know where they plan on going from here but clearly Undertaker’s hair is part of the build in his Hell in a Cell match against Triple H with Shawn Michaels as the special guest referee.
We always hear about what Vince McMahon likes in a superstar – big marketable look. This might sound like a stupid question but how much does McMahon appreciate a solid technical wrestling match?
Vince McMahon knows a good performer from a bad one, however, he also understands the business part of the business. It was The Rock that pointed out a couple weeks ago that a lot of the boys today don’t get the “business” part of the wrestling business. What I think The Rock was talking about is Vince understands how to make money. You have to understand that great technical wrestling is only a part of what makes WWE popular. McMahon wants the entire family engaged in his product because what’s more profitable? Serving one in a household or the entire household plus animals? As much as I would like to see every show loaded with dream wrestling-heavy match-ups, it wouldn’t get over with WWE’s mainstream fan base.
