The Undertaker vs. CM Punk

Do you think Undertaker "phoned in" his promo on this week's WWE Raw? It seemed rushed and didn't have that chilling quality we're used to seeing him he speaks.

The Undertaker didn't come off good on the mic on this week's episode of WWE Raw. I actually thought the entire show was very weak with the exception of the triple-threat match for the WWE Intercontinental Championship. I obviously can't explain why Undertaker was off but I've included the segment below so readers can post their reactions in the comments section.

What do you think about the new guys coming in and getting a spot in Wrestlemania over other guys? The Shield is good, but I'm sure there are people angry that they are got a spot. Big E just seems like he got lucky and didn't earn it.

A lot has been written and discussed about this year's Wrestlemania but I think this is the first concern someone has had about WWE using too much new talent. It's absolutely essential that WWE utilize some up and comers with Wrestlemania 29 being so heavy on part-time talent. We've seen hotshot booking get WWE in trouble time and time again and I'm all for the inclusion of The Shield, Big E Langston, Dolph Ziggler and any other names they can sneak on the card. I'm actually hoping Chris Jericho can get the best out of Fandango, assuming the match makes the show.

Will Bully Ray be forced to vacate the TNA Championship due to his homophobic slur?

I don't see TNA blowing up creative plans because of Bully Ray's rant laced with homophobic slurs. I also don't want it to seem like I'm glossing over this. Bully's comments were not right and shouldn't be used in any situation but he was working when he made the comments. Bully apologized and Dixie Carter seemed to incorporate her storyline disdain for Aces and Eights with her apology. I look at this situation in detail in a new article posted here on I humbly seek your input on this issue.

What happened with Jack Swagger's court date that was scheduled for March 12th?

Jack Swagger's plea date for his February arrest was March 12, 2013 in Biloxi, Mississippi. Swagger postponed the date as he had to work last week's Smackdown taping in Fort Wayne, Indiana. I'm told Vince McMahon told Swagger to push the date back and WWE was treating him as innocent until proven guilty.

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, March 21, 2013.
