After watching the latest episode of WWE Inbox a lot of superstars mentioned bringing back the Hardcore title, my question is with there so much backstage segments and the WWE Active, could you see WWE bringing back the Hardcore title?

I sure hope not. I'm against any situation that brings back any titles in WWE and would actually be for eliminating the United States Championship in favor of the Intercontinental Championship being the only secondary title. WWE has a hard enough utilizing the titles they have now, what's the purpose of adding another? I do support both the WWE Championship and World Heavyweight Championship because it creates more opportunities in the top of the card but there is no need for another secondary title. Could you imagine the Hardcore title in the confines of WWE PG?

Now that Booker T has been named to the WWE Hall of Fame will Randy Savage or Paul Bearer also make this year's Hall of Fame?

I don't see Randy Savage going in this year but I know there was a push to induct Paul Bearer shortly after he died. I have no problem with Bearer going in this year unless they decide to hold off and induct him when they induct The Undertaker. This year's WWE Hall of Fame class has shaped up nicely. It went from, "well we may have Mick Foley" to not only do we have Mick Foley but Bruno Sammartino, Bob Backlund, Trish Stratus and Booker T. It's a great class.

Why would WWE make the Triple H vs. Brock Lesnar match a retirement match? Obviously, that means that Lesnar would win because WWE just signed him for two years. Doesn't that spoil the fun of the match?

The match is officially a No Holds Barred match with the stipulation if Brock Lesnar goes over, Triple H must retire. If Lesnar loses, he doesn't have to retire. The "unfair stipulation" was part of the storyline they executed at this week's Raw. I expressed my disdain for the stipulations to the match in a new YouTube video at this link.

With all these TNA "One Night Only" PPV's being filmed now, what is the purpose of these and when are they meant to air? As well as with Impact tapings, how often are they filming on the road?

TNA taped all of their One Night Only pay-per-views because their lease at Universal Studios is up at the end of the month and it was easier to get it done in Orlando. The shows will replace airing live three-hour pay-per-views in prime time each month on Sunday nights. They are cheaper to produce and distribute and will ultimately save the company money. As for the Impact tapings, TNA is taping twice a month. This week's show was taped last week and next week another two weeks will be taped in Jonesboro, Arkansas.

Remember questions with proper grammar and spelling stand the best chance of getting answered. The next installment of Ask WNW is scheduled to run on Friday, March 22, 2013.
