Why does WWE Raw still run past 11:00 PM with it being three hours?

The time that Raw runs over is called the "overrun." This is time WWE is allotted from the USA Network to allow final segments to play out. The length of the overrun varies but is done for a multitude of reasons but there wasn't a plan to cut it by moving to three hours.

Does TNA actually know who is going to be revealed as the later of Aces & 8s or is this an anonymous GM situation [like we saw in WWE]?

The plan earlier this month was for Bully Ray to turn on Sting at Bound for Glory and be revealed as the leader of Aces & 8's and go on to challenge Jeff Hardy for the TNA Championship. With Devon returning, plans have changed, however, I can confirm that was the talk at the beginning of the month. It seems TNA wants to keep people guessing to keep intrigue in the angle.

Now that the match has been set, is it a possible storyline that CM Punk could lose the title to Ryback but have Dolph Ziggler "cash in" his Money in the Bank briefcase and win the title?

Dolph Ziggler's Money in the Bank briefcase is for the World Heavyweight Championship, remember John Cena won the briefcase for the WWE Championship title shot (that he lost on the 1000th episode of WWE Raw). As I noted here in Ask WNW, I have been less than pleased with the booking of Ziggler.

Why did WWE put Kofi Kingston over The Miz for the IC title on Main Event?

As we spoiled here on Richard's Backstage Blog, WWE put Kofi over The Miz for the title on Main Event to draw attention to the show. This is also why the company put it out on dot com before the match aired, to show their viewers that "anything could happen" on the new series. We were the first and only publication to provide the match outcome four days before it was taped.

Remember questions with proper spelling and grammar have the best chance of being answered. The next installment of Ask WNW will run on Monday, October 22, 2012.
