Most Potential Out Of The Shield, Why Sting/WWE Won't Die, Punk's Future, Mount Rushmore Of Divas

The following is today's edition of Ask WNW. Ask WNW is the most popular feature on the website where Richard Gray answers four questions daily, Monday through Friday. To submit your question for the next installment of Ask WNW, click here.

Which member of The Shield do you think has the most potential?

This is a question that's too early to answer because we haven't seen enough of any of them. Roman Reigns is the greenest of the trio as Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins have already had runs as top guys in other promotions (Dragon Gate USA and Ring of Honor respectively), however, Reigns has a great look. WWE's developmental system is very well stocked and these are three of the best. Take a look at WWE's top prospects from the original Nexus and you can see more of what I'm talking about.

Richard, why is it that most internet wrestling fans think Sting would want to go to WWE? The question of him leaving TNA for the WWE comes up every year and is answered the same way every year. He stays where he is. Why risk what he has created over 25+ years for the potential of VKM burying him like so many other former WCW or TNA talents?

The reason it comes up is because there is continually interest from both WWE and Sting. The closest they ever got was two years ago when Sting nearly signed to do a Wrestlemania program with Undertaker. Sting is 53-years-old and he knows he's at the end of his career and it's coming down to the final chance. I'm not saying it would ever happen but the fact of the matter is there is legitimate interest from both sides, not just members of the IWC clamoring over a dream match.

With CM Punk being ruled out of the TLC PPV, do you see him defending his WWE Championship before the Royal Rumble?

As I reported here, the outlook of CM Punk's injury is good. My wife is a Registered Nurse and told me normal recovery time for arthroscopic knee surgery is about six weeks. CM Punk felt like he could work in under two but WWE didn't want to take the risk. The company has pseudo promoted Punk vs. The Rock for the WWE title at Royal Rumble for months so I look for them to be very careful with him before then.

What's your Mount Rushmore for WWE Divas?

I used to hate this question for WWE wrestlers but when I included it, a great discussion ensued. Everyone is open to their own opinion but my Mount Rushmore of WWE Divas would be Tammy Sytch, Trish Stratus, "Sensational" Sherri Martel and Mae Young. Tammy Sytch created the modern day Diva, Trish is my pick for the top women's wrestler in the history of the business, while Sherri and Mae created opportunities that paved the way for them to be successful.

Remember questions with proper grammar and spelling stand the best chance of getting answered. The next installment of Ask WNW will run on Thursday, December 6, 2012.
