How much input do WWE workers have regarding their entrance music?
It depends on the worker but ultimately WWE decides who comes out to what entrance music. CM Punk was able to get WWE to buy the rights to “Cult of Personality” by Living Colour as part of his new deal signed last year. Obviously the higher up someone is on the card, the more influence they have but Randy Orton once said he had Punk’s old music tapped for himself but WWE gave it to Punk.
Is The Undertaker going to be on Raw’s 1000th episode?
The Undertaker isn’t being advertised for the 1000th episode of Raw and I haven’t heard if there are plans to use him. Obviously I wouldn’t be surprised if he ended up appearing due to the occasion and there has been talk of him working prior to Wrestlemania XXIX next year.
The 1000th episode of Raw takes place in St. Louis, Missouri, Randy Orton’s hometown. With Randy’s suspension still in affect until the following Sunday, could you see the WWE allowing him to appear at the show despite his suspension?
I don’t see WWE allowing Randy Orton to appear before his suspension expires. Orton’s suspension is still a delicate matter as he has considerable heat from it. The current plan is still to push him in the top of the card when he returns later this month, despite earlier rumblings he could be finished.
I don’t see the Tensai gimmick going anywhere. Do you see WWE possibly bringing him back as Albert or A-Train?
I agree, I do not see the Tensai gimmick going anywhere. WWE had big expectations for the gimmick but Matt Bloom hasn’t been able to get over. The gimmick has been scaled back to what it was originally slated to be but it’s still stuck in monotony.
