WWE Divas Leaving, Undertaker’s Return, Raw’s 20th Flat?, More Brock Lesnar

With Kelly Kelly, Beth Phoenix and now Eve Torres leaving WWE, do you think more Divas will be headed out the door because of not being utilized on TV for example the extremely talented Alicia Fox and Natayla?

I do believe the way the Divas are consistently underutilized played a part in the departures of the aforementioned Divas, however, the women you mentioned were on the road continuously for several years. It’s easy to get burned out, and the WWE lifestyle certainly takes its toll, especially when one wants to do anything other than wrestle. The full-time WWE schedule allows for one thing… wrestling. Other than that, there’s no time for anything, including outside projects or even a family life. With that being said, I can’t predict the future as to what other Divas will do as some (such a Kaitlyn) are using the opportunity to raise their stock in the company.

If Undertaker is to work Wrestlemania 29, when do you see him returning to WWE television?

I would expect Undertaker back anytime after Royal Rumble, as there are at least preliminary plans for him to return and defend “the streak” at Wrestlemania 29 this year. A lot of people hoped he would make a cameo on the 20th Anniversary of Raw, given he lives in Texas, but for whatever reason it didn’t happen.

Did this Monday’s 20th Anniversary of WWE Raw fall horribly flat in comparison to Raw 1000 last summer?

Raw’s 20th Anniversary was a disappointment if one was expecting several cameos from past stars, however, I thought it was a pretty good show. As I noted earlier in the week, we saw great wrestling, a title change and an entertaining segment between The Rock and CM Punk. Expectations seemed to be unreachable based on the anticipation of several names from the past appearing. The fact of the matter is both Steve Austin and Shawn Michaels were never scheduled to appear and WWE wanted to stay the course with the build towards Royal Rumble.

I’ve read if Brock Lesnar re-signs with WWE he’ll work CM Punk at SummerSlam and Undertaker at Wrestlemania 30, true or not?

No creative plans for Brock Lesnar have been discussed past Wrestlemania 29 this year. That’s not to say Vince McMahon (and others) haven’t thought of the possibilities if they can re-sign Lesnar for another year but be careful what you read online. While we have a pretty good idea the plans for Wrestlemania this year, nothing is 100% set in stone.

    “The extremely talented Alicia Fox…” LOL WUT?

    • jackkedx10

      lol must be related to her in some way..

    • Rayner Chee-bai

      her match that was considered a 5 star match was against Melina. Maybe she’s that talented anyhow?

    • Kenneth

      There’s talent and there’s ‘talent’.

    • LBP365

      I agree but face the fact the money or show off talent money stacy in WWE never win the title and get paid or TNA face Gail, Mikki, Tara, and Velvet, but get no money

    • Dangerous Lee

      Uh oh. Alicia Fox thumbed down my comment. :D

    They just had a 1000th Episode Anniversary on Raw with cameos. Maybe they shouldn’t hold 2 anniversary shows within 6 months of one another. Who does that? Choose 1 celebration per year and it maintains relevance. I honestly didn’t have high expectations for the 20th anniversary of RAW, because I thought the same people who appeared on the 1000th episode, were going to be the same people patting themselves on the back again for the 20th anniversary.

    Raw 20th was a load of garbage, the opening segment bored me to death….all it was ABR kicks Show in the head and show goes to the back (when show is meant to be some unstoppable monster with an Iron clad contract -which is fake as shit)

    The lack of appearance let the whole show down (given the fact most would be prob from Raw 1000th) – like some have commented I didnt think there was any need for 2 anniversary shows in such short space.

    All we got for it was a diva title change (who really cares when half the divas are gone?) But I do like Kaitlyn (she reminds me of Trish Stratus) and all we got was 5 mins for it….

    The only decent thing we saw was Cena Vs Ziggler for the 10th time and this was the best match of the night….

    The whole Rock concert got too boring and predictable – We seen it 10000ths of times before and you can tell Rock just makes things up on the stop (only the physical part of the segment was decent.

    so

    Lack of Appearences
    Lack of quality matches
    Segments were too long and boring
    A title match which was 5 mins
    Opening Segment and beginning of the End segment lacked
