Why are the Rhodes Scholars still competing together if they've been broken up?

The on-again, off-again booking of The Rhodes Scholars underscores the indecision of Vince McMahon. One minute he wants a viable tag team division, the next he wants to focus on singles pushes. When Damien Sandow and Cody Rhodes reunited last weekend on live events it was a special occasion, now they'll work the Elimination Chamber pre-show. Vince has wanted to push Damien in singles so when the tag team was split it was seen as a path to clear the way. Now it's believed Sandow's push is being stalled due to Wrestlemania build. Keeping him with Rhodes seems to be a holding pattern.

I for one am getting very tired of seeing The Rock come out and cut all his promos, wouldn't it make more sense if we actually wrestled on Raw instead of continually talking?

I've gone on record in writing that The Rock "must wrestle" on free TV to remain relevant to the viewers. While I'll admit I was overstating to illustrate how vital I think it is he works, it's my belief that no matter how good one is on the mic they are bound to get stale without actually working. This is why I'm against overexposing legends that are physically unable to wrestle because their star will eventually fade if they can't backup their talk. So to answer your question, yes it would make more sense for him to wrestle.

Why was Rey Mysterio pulled from the Elimination Chamber Match at the pay-per-view on Sunday?

We reported here on WrestlingNewsWorld.com that Rey Mysterio was pulled from the pay-per-view due to ongoing personal issues. We also noted he's been pulled from the Raw tour of Qatar and Turkey and replaced by Mark Henry.

What do you think of The Rock vs. Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania 29 for the WWE Championship?

I'd be in favor of The Rock defending the WWE Championship against Brock Lensar at Wrestlemania, however, it's not the direction WWE is going. Rock is scheduled to rematch John Cena while Lesnar is scheduled to rematch Triple H. Apparently there has been talk of doing Rock vs. Brock at SummerSlam later this year.

Remember questions with proper grammar and spelling stand the best chance of getting answered.

The next installment of Ask WNW is scheduled to run on Thursday, February 14, 2013.
