Do you see Randy Orton returning on the 1000th episode of Raw next week?

Randy Orton's suspension ends on July 30, 2012 so he's going to miss the 1000th episode of Raw by one week. Given my serious questions of the WWE Wellness Policy, I won't completely rule an Orton appearance out but it's unlikely due to the fact that his suspension has been announced to the public.

After Chris Jericho's attack on Dolph Ziggler, does this indicate plans of a potential program and possible Jericho babyface turn?

WWE is certainly looking to program Chris Jericho and Dolph Ziggler but it will be interesting to see who they turn babyface. Let's not forget about all the babyface reactions Ziggler has garnered over the past several weeks and even though WWE has tried to tame them by overemphasizing his alliance with Vickie Guerrero, he could be the one to turn. Regardless, WWE needs more top heels and fewer top babyfaces.

Why did WWE just want until next week for Rey Mysterio to return?

WWE wanted Rey Mysterio to work this week's Smackdown taping in his hometown of San Diego, California so they probably wanted him to officially return on the live show before appearing on Smackdown. Rey was actually backstage at Raw on July 2nd so I thought he could end up appearing there, however, the company has been in "no hurry" to bring him back. Next week's show is going to be loaded so Mysterio's return could have gotten lost in the shuffle.

Were the results of the online poll WWE did on this week's Raw Supershow to determine which secondary title would be defended on next week's 1000th Raw a shoot or a work?

Most of the time WWE has done polling on dot com, the results have been legitimate. You can expect to see a lot more of this with Raw Supershow going three hours as the plan is to make the show the most interactive program on television, utilizing the Internet and social media like never before. Unless I receive word otherwise, I'm under the assumption that Christian legitimately received more votes to defend the Intercontinental title than Santino Marella (US title) or Layla (Divas title).

Remember questions with proper spelling and grammar have the best chance of being answered. The next installment of Ask WNW will run on Wednesday, July 18, 2012.
