Why wasn't Lord Tensai on Raw this past week and why was his role in the John Laurinaitis/John Cena feud seemingly scraped? Is this a sign that WWE is losing faith in the Tensai character after all of the "Albert" chants?

Lord Tensai worked the WWE Superstars taping prior to last night's Raw Supershow and in the dark match main event. As I reported exclusively here on WrestlingNewsWorld.com Premium, members of WWE management are growing weary of booking him against top workers due to his body of work since returning to WWE.

I don't get it. The Miz went from losing weekly to winning at Wrestlemania and the day after to being buried again. Is there a lack of confidence in him backstage or is he still on punishment?

With The Miz going under to Brodus Clay last week and taking the pin to him again this week, it looks like he is being setup for a program with Clay. Given the way The Miz has been booked, it's not secret he has regressed from the main event scene back to the mid card but I'm not aware of any immediate heat. I heard The Miz had heat earlier this year for a spot gone wrong with R-Truth but the jobs to Clay appear to be part of a program.

With the Big Show getting "fired" on last night's Raw Supershow, do you think it is possible that John Laurinaitis will force the Big Show to interfere in the match (since he is technically is not a WWE Superstar), to help him win in order to get his job back?

Before answering this question, I want to make sure everyone understands the segment with John Laurinaitis and Big Show on last night's Raw Supershow was a work as Show wasn't legitimately fired. I'm always amazed at the amount of questions we get asking what is storyline and what isn't. Back to your question, this is a likely scenario but also very predictable. WWE usually avoids the obvious scenario, however, they clearly inserted Show into the storyline.

With WWE NXT and FCW moving to Full Sail University, do you think the FCW talents will end up moving to Orlando (it's 20 minutes away) or will they stay in Tampa for training and do a weekly two-hour drive to Winter Park?

From what I understand, there are still plans to use the facilities in Tampa but they will begin taping a couple times a month at Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida. You can view the schedule at this link. Given the fact the home base of FCW is still in Tampa, I don't see any of the workers moving.

Remember questions with proper spelling and grammar receive top priority and stand the best chance of getting answered. The next installment of Ask WNW will run on Wednesday, May 16, 2012.
