What is the policy for signs in the crowd at televised WWE events?
What signs get in and what signs do not start with the live event staff at each venue. Some venues have a reputation for being strict while others are more lenient. WWE has their producers and cameramen monitor the signs that are getting on television and will remove any that are even questionable. Signs that are certain to get taken are those that advertise something, include profanity or reference a worker in which WWE has recently fired or wants nothing to do with.

I understand WWE is in business to make money and the more commercials on their programming, the more money. However, I feel the commercials have became excessive and are drawing viewers away. What are your thoughts?
There is a direct correlation between the amount of commercials and the number of viewers that watch WWE programming. Remember the commercial-free episode of WWE Raw from 2009? The show did an outstanding rating and showed company officials how they could benefit from product-placement type advertising and ditching commercials outright. However, back to today and the quality of ads for WWE programming isn’t as good due to the demographic so they have to make up for the lack of quality with quantity. We experience the same thing with this website. The biggest reason Vince McMahon decided to expand Raw to three hours is the extra hour of revenue from commercials.
Why is Sheamus not considered a top WWE talent. You always list John Cena, Randy Orton and CM Punk.
Sheamus is a current main event star in WWE but he’s not yet “the guy” or one of “the guys.” WWE officials, specifically Triple H, see Sheamus as one of the future “faces of the company” but he’s not there yet. Cena, Orton and Punk are going to work in the main event no matter what because they are the top draws.
