I am a huge Jeff Hardy fan and I know he left WWE and went to TNA. I was just wondering if Hardy would ever come back to WWE?

WWE had interest in Jeff Hardy when his last TNA contract was up but he ended up re-signing with TNA Wrestling for another two years.

Will CM Punk return as a heel or babyface?

CM Punk is a heel although there have been some developments in when he'll return. Originally scheduled for next week's WWE Raw in Columbus, Punk is now scheduled to return on the May 27th episode of Raw in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. We have more at this link.

When Ric Flair returns from mourning, what capacity will he have in WWE?

Ric Flair isn't under WWE contract. There were plans to use him on a per shot (on the Legend's panel on the 3/25 WWE Raw) but a health issue caused him to get sent home followed by the tragic death of his son Reid. If he signs or if there are plans to bring him in on a per shot, we'll bring you the latest details.

Why aren't the dark matches on Raw and Smackdown ever seen on television? It seems like the dark matches are sometimes the best match of the night. What are your thoughts about this?

Dark match main events are done to give the crowd in attendance a bonus for attending live. They usually aren't very long but do involve main event names. Dark match main events provide workers an opportunity to go over spots with people they are in programs with in front of a live television audience.

Remember questions with proper spelling and grammar standing the best chance of getting answered. The next installment of Ask WNW is scheduled to run on Thursday, April 25, 2013.
