Do you see Triple and Brock Lesnar feuding after what happened on last night's Raw Supershow or was it all part of the development of Lesnar's character?

There are preliminary plans to do Triple H vs. Brock Lesnar, possibly at SummerSlam with the storyline being that Lesnar "broke Triple H's arm." The angle was also done about Lesnar's contract status to write him off TV for a couple weeks as his contract is a part-time agreement. Following the backstage blowup Lesnar had at Extreme Rules, some have speculated this was WWE's way of protecting themselves in case Lesnar quits, but there were plans to write Lesnar off TV after Extreme Rules before he got upset.

Will Rey Mysterio's suspension speed up Sin Cara's return date and will it alter how the company plans to push him?

WWE has been functioning without Rey Mysterio and Sin Cara for several months now so I don't see Mysterio's suspension playing much of a factor in Cara's return. WWE learned real quick they couldn't just plug in another popular Mexican talent to take the reigns from Rey Mysterio as the company's top hispanic draw. As I reported earlier here at WrestlingNewsWorld.com, there are plans for Cara to return this month and while it is on the early side, the expected timetable for his injury all along has been 6-9 months. WWE has remained committed to Sin Cara despite a Wellness suspension and a severe injury but one has to think it is "make it or break it" time for Sin Cara.

What was the point of Big Show's one month run with the WWE Intercontinental Championship?

I was never in favor of Big Show taking the WWE Intercontinental Championship off Cody Rhodes at Wrestlemania so I can't begin to explain WWE's reasoning. Big Show is a tricky worker to book and the company wanted him to go over at Wrestlemania to prevent him from looking weak. However, I didn't see how holding the Intercontinental Championship would do him any good due to the fact that he's already an established veteran and former World Champion.

Are there any plans to push Dolph Ziggler?

Dolph Ziggler has been one of WWE's best workers over the past few months, however, it seems the company is almost scared to push him. Again, it's hard for me to explain the WWE mentality but remember, they do not push workers based on in-ring work. While I feel Ziggler has selling points in all three "core" areas (look, mic work & in-ring), not everyone can be pushed at once and Ziggler can at least be happy that he is getting on TV.
