Do you think Ezekiel Jackson will ever be able to work his way out of the WWE doghouse and get back into a storyline or TV or do you think he will just continue to lose until he is released?

Ezekiel Jackson has a tremendous look but had heat for a Wellness Policy violation that he cleared with a valid prescription. He resurfaced earlier in the week on WWE Inbox but it's anyone's guess if he'll be able to angle his way back in favorable light. I heard shortly after his positive Wellness test he was on the road with the company but wasn't used.

Was Chris Jericho's "what are you going to do, suspend me?" line to Vickie Guerrero on this week's Raw Supershow a dig to the people in the back?

The line was a creative line by Chris Jericho that was obviously making reference to his recent 30-day suspension for desecrating the Brazilian flag at a live event last month. I don't know how much of a "dig" it was considering Jericho didn't have heat for the suspension as it was seen as something that was done to "save face" more than anything else.

Is there still a backstage rule of "paying your dues" between all talent?

Many of the veterans will argue the business isn't what it once was and that younger workers come in today with a sense of entitlement where they are "above" paying their dues. We can point to many different factors as to why this is but it's still in a younger worker's best interest to come in humble, ready to "pay their dues." The pro wrestling business is unlike any other in that the outcomes are predetermined but how you are booked and pushed can determine whether you make very little or millions of dollars. Backstage politics can cost a very talented worker their chance at stardom so if someone is going to come in with an attitude, they better know who not to rub the wrong way.

With the WWE Championship match at Money in the Bank having only four participants and featuring two guys in Kane and Big Show that you wouldn't normally associate with this type of match, do you think this is a good opportunity for WWE to bring back Rey Mysterio from suspension and The Miz from filming to put workers in the match capable of hitting more high risk spots as right now the match on paper at least appears pretty lackluster.

I was told by a WWE source after the four participants were announced for the WWE Championship Money in the Bank match they would be surprised if someone else wasn't added, however, WWE's wording in their official preview seemed to indicate the plan was for the match to be limited to Cena, Kane, Big Show and Chris Jericho. As I stated earlier in the week, we'll see how it plays out.

Remember questions with proper spelling and grammar have the best chance of being answered. The next installment of Ask WNW will run on Monday, July 2, 2012.
