Where do you see the WWE Divas division going and what is your take on the difference between them and the TNA Knockouts?

WWE is conducting focus groups, asking fans what they want to see with the Divas heading into the new year. The WWE philosophy with Divas has never been built around athletic in-ring matches, even when the division was stocked with viable in-ring talent, matches often left a lot to be desired. Vince McMahon's mentality with the Divas has always been to use them more for their looks than their talent. The difference between the WWE Divas and TNA Knockouts is Knockouts have more athletic wrestling matches but this has become less than common under the leadership of Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff.

Where do you get your inside information?

I have been in this business since 1999 and have compiled a detailed list of sources and connections over the years. My days are spent working the phones and going through emails and text messages to bring readers the best experience possible. I get a tremendous amount of information each week but it's up to me to go through it all and post what is relevant to you.

Why did WWE have John Cena "cash in" at Raw 1000 rather than a surprise "cashing in" like we've seen with Money in the Bank winders int he past?

WWE wanted John Cena to challenge for the WWE Championship on the 1000th episode of Raw thus they did what they did with the MITB briefcase. I didn't like how the match at the Money in the Bank pay-per-view was only open to former champions. The MITB ladder match has always been about elevating up and coming talent and they went against that this year with the WWE Championship briefcase. In my opinion it took away from the match and one can only hope Dolph Ziggler is booked better.

Is it true WWE has plans to release a Goldberg DVD next year and if so, do you see him appearing to promote it?

Yes, WWE has plans to release a DVD highlighting the career of Bill Goldberg with a tentative release date of June 25, 2013. There is always a possibly Goldberg signs on to appear but I wouldn't hold my breath. He doesn't have a good relationship with Vince McMahon or Triple H and has always wanted too much money.

Remember questions with proper grammar and spelling stand the best chance of getting answered. The next installment of Ask WNW will run on Wednesday, December 12, 2012.
