I have heard there have been backstage/real life tension between The Rock and Triple H in the past. Is this true, and if so what’s the situation now?
From what I understand Triple H and The Rock have never been friends and don’t see eye-to-eye. I know I’ve written about it before but I don’t think it’s one issue in particular as much as it is just two massive egos. Apparently Hunter has stayed out of The Rock’s way and is obviously willing to do what is the best for the company. Vince McMahon has been trying to get The Rock back for years so obviously Hunter didn’t want to do anything to mess it up now that it’s a reality. The Rock has a lot of haters backstage, as do most top WWE workers.
How does one go about being a referee in WWE?
Referees have to get trained just like wrestlers. Some of the referees in WWE started out in another role. For example, Jack Doan was a truck driver for WWE is the 1990s, helping move equipment to live events. He also worked backstage and as a member of the company’s ring crew. Scott Armstrong is a former in-ring worker and also the son of a WWE Hall of Famer. If you’re looking to get to WWE as a referee, you need to get down to Florida and start making some connections in the independent scene.
Will there be any more Traditional Survivor Series Elimination Tag Team matches this year or are they doing what they did in 2007 and 2010?
I haven’t heard of plans of any more Traditional Survivor Series matches being announced and barring a last minute change, it doesn’t appear likely. Vince McMahon isn’t high up on the gimmick and actually feels it’s outdated. Remember the entire pay-per-view was nearly scrapped last year but there was a change of heart due to the name recognition of the show.
Will WWE ever eliminate the Divas division and use only male superstars? I don’t know why divas are still around as not many are interested.
I never like to say never but it’s highly unlikely Vince McMahon is going to eliminate the sex appeal from the company. The Divas are used for their looks and are ambassadors for WWE. Have you seen the December 2011 cover of Maxim magazine featuring Kelly Kelly? I understand your frustration with the in-ring usage of the Divas but they hold a larger purpose than what you see on weekly TVs.
