It's Black Friday, where are the specials for WNW Premium?

We are going to post our Black Friday special later this afternoon with the lowest prices in our website's history. I don't want to spoil the surprise but it's definitely something everyone is going to want to keep an eye on.

You've mentioned that you don't agree with Triple H on Sheamus as the next "face" of WWE. Who do you see as the next face? Is that person even on the roster now, or is he yet to be discovered?

It's impossible for me to predict the future as to who will be the next "face of WWE" but I don't think they're currently working in the top of the card. Many people would point to CM Punk, who has probably gotten the closest to John Cena, but at the end of the day Cena is still the guy. WWE's developmental system is stocked with talent and their main roster has several names that could make a push. It's all going to come down to the right person, time and opportunity.

When is The Undertaker scheduled to return to WWE and who will he face?

The last we heard (and reported on WNW Premium) there was a very real possibly of The Undertaker missing Wrestlemania for the first time since 2000. He only has a couple matches left in him and he wants to make them count. We were told Undertaker is upset and feels neglected with next year's show focusing on The Rock, John Cena and Brock Lesnar. You can get caught up at this link.

I know about how people under performer’s contracts in WWE get bonuses for being on TV shows. What happens if a worker is written off because of a storyline and they do not appear live but they show highlight clips with the worker getting “injured,” or the announcers talk about them? Does that count as appearing on the show even though it was not new or do they have to physically appear in new footage to get their bonus? Technically they are still part of the show.

A worker gets paid a bonus when they appear. If a clip from a prior show is shown, it’s not a new appearance. There is also no compensation for a worker being mentioned or talked about but only if they appear. If a worker is injured, they are able to continue to pay their bills by collecting their downside guarantee. The only time a downside stops is in the case of a suspension.

Remember questions with proper grammar and spelling stand the best chance of getting answered. The next installment of Ask WNW will run on Monday, November 26, 2012.
