Now that Linda McMahon's political career seems to be over, can Vince move on to make the product more entertaining?

This was the one million… or should we say $100 million question that we knew would come up following Election Day. I honestly believe Vince McMahon is committed to producing a PG product because of the diverse opportunities it provides WWE in today's marketplace. The only situation I can see the product reverting back to the days of the Attitude Era is if a viable competitor threatens them. Linda McMahon's political career has certainly impacted WWE's programming but her loss won't produce the immediate creative overhaul some are hoping for.

What is going on with the booking of The Miz? He made movies for WWE, comes back with a LITTLE bit of a push and now lost the IC title, has been on a HUGE losing streak and is no longer in Survivor Series match. What gives?

It appears WWE is at least teasing turning The Miz babyface. I know people are getting tired of me writing this but The Miz is in a very good position in WWE, poised for another main event run. Not only is he seen as versatile but his future is very bright with starring roles in WWE Studios projects.

If it were up to you, which main event would you pick to headline Survivor Series: the original 5-on-5 match or the new triple threat match?

I always like to see pay-per-views, especially major pay-per-views, headlined by title matches but the situation with Survivor Series 2012 is complex. WWE was looking for a way to continue CM Punk vs. Ryback without having either lose while at the same time preparing Punk for The Rock. Vince McMahon didn't like how the announcement of the original Survivor Series main event went over so he changed it. With John Cena in the match, it gives WWE a way out of their predicament. I am against Ryback in the title picture at this point in his career and also didn't understand why WWE thought the original Survivor Series main event would get over in the first place. It doesn't look like this year's show is going to be successful.

Why does Rey Mysterio work in a shirt?

We were told Rey Mysterio is working in a shirt because his abs are not in desirable physical condition.
