Los Matadores

What are your thoughts on Los Matadores? What do you think was the point in repackaging Primo and Epico instead of just re-debuting them as is? I get that the tag division is depleted as is, but Primo and Epico are a very talented team that won't benefit from this. I feel like this will end up hurting them in the long run. I really think if WWE wants to put some focus in the division, they should just focus on building solid tag teams and not silly gimmicks that won't catch on.

I actually felt that Los Matadores was one of the few bright spots of this week's Monday Night Raw. You're writing this off before it even has a chance, which is the typical IWC overreaction. Epico & Primo were going nowhere in the tag team with Rosa Mendes and if anything else, this gives them another shot to be relevant. Their masked bull mascot, El Torito, is Mexican Lucha mini Mascarita Dorada and is a great worker in his own right so why not give this a chance? They aren't going to be challenging for a main event spot but what I saw on Monday was fun.

Is the push of Curtis Axel over?

It appears that Curtis Axel has peaked with nowhere else to go but down. When a worker is brought in with a lot of momentum and a serious commitment, it's feast or famine. No one wanted Axel to succeed as much I did but it just hasn't worked. WWE is now focused on aligning Ryback with Paul Heyman so Axel is in jeopardy of getting lost in the shuffle. However, I don't think there are many of you that are going to argue that Axel did anything to help him keep his push.

Do you see a possible and hopeful program between "Stone Cold" Steve Austin and CM Punk for next year's Wrestlemania? If so, how big of an impact will the match and the storyline have on the pay-per-view?

I am as pessimistic as I've been on Steve Austin vs. CM Punk happening at next year's Wrestlemania XXX pay-per-view. In addition to money, there are other issues that appear to be keeping this match from happening. Austin himself has said it would take him 3-4 months to get in ring shape and then what? Austin vs. Punk is still a possibility, anything in this business is possible, but I 'm not counting on it.

With all the talk of Brock Lesnar, John Cena, Ryback and some others being considered for The Undertaker's opponent at WrestleMania XXX next year. Who do you see being The Undertaker's opponent at WrestleMania XXX?

Every year one of the biggest topics surrounding Wrestlemania is who will get to face Undertaker? As we reported here on Premium, Undertaker is intrigued by a possible match with Brock Lesnar. In that story, we provide an update on a recent surgery he had and his availability for Survivor Series. If you are not yet a WNW Premium Member, you can signup now at this link.
