With Bobby Lashley losing another MMA fight over the weekend, how soon will it be before he signs a new contract with WWE?

Bobby Lashley has been interested in returning to WWE since late last year, before his loss this weekend. The problem is WWE isn't as interested in bringing him back. Lashley took a big risk in trying MMA. Either he would have success like Brock Lesnar and his stock would skyrocket or he wouldn't and his stock would plummet. Unfortunately for Lashley, he hasn't had success and there is no rush to bring him back.

What was the cause of tension between Brock Lesnar and John Cena during Brock's initial run with WWE?

Brock Lesnar didn't like John Cena when the two were just emerging on the scene. I don't know if there's a clear answer as to why but they didn't get along. Brock is a funny guy and not very personable but he and John didn't see eye-to-eye. With that being said I don't know how things are between the two today.

How does WWE select which superstars to produce merchandise for and how much emphasis is put on what superstars wear to the ring?

It all depends on who is over. The more crowd reactions a worker generates, the more merchandise WWE is going to put out in hopes of turning a big profit. Let me give you a recent example. Daniel Bryan drew big "Yes, Yes, Yes" chants so the company releases a "Yes, Yes, Yes" t-shirt. It all has to do with what the company thinks will sell the most. As for emphasis on what a worker wears to the ring, WWE obviously wants talent to wear their merchandise to the ring because if a fan sees them wearing it, they are more likely to buy that particular product.

When are we going to see Dean Ambrose called up to the main WWE roster?

Dean Ambrose's debut on the main WWE roster seems imminent, as he has been working pre-show dark matches. He, along with Bo Rotundo and Bray Wyatt (formerly Husky Harris),are on the short list for a call-up to the main roster.
