With WWE promoting TNA stars on their website and on television could the "A Revolution is Coming" campaign be an invasion of Impact Wrestling?

No, WWE isn't going to "invade" TNA Wrestling. A lot of readers saw this happen when Vince McMahon purchased WCW or when ECW invaded WWE and want to see it happen again, however, there are no plans for the two largest wrestling promotions to work together. As for WWE promoting TNA wrestlers on their official website I think it's more indicative of Vince McMahon's feelings towards TNA. He doesn't see the company as competition and operates almost as if they do not even exist.

It seems like Hulk Hogan never knows what's going on (as in the case with Scott Steiner) and doesn't draw ratings anymore. Honestly, if the wrestlers don't like him being there, if he doesn't make more money for the company than he is getting paid, how does he have a job?

I agree many of Hulk Hogan's ideas seem out of touch with today's audience, however, he has a job because he is Hulk Hogan. I wish there was more of an explanation I could give you but that's the reason he has a job with TNA; because of who he is. Hogan can be credited for major pro wrestling booms in the 80s and 90s and the hope was he would put TNA on the map. Unfortunately that hasn't happened and TNA continues to struggle to grow their viewing audience. The latest idea is to move Impact back an hour in hopes they will lock in more viewers.

Has The Undertaker retired or will he work Wrestlemania XXIX next year?

There is no definitive word on The Undertaker's future but the last I heard he was in the preliminary plans for Wrestlemania XXIX. The days of him as a full-time WWE star are over but he felt good after his match at Wrestlemania XXVIII this year and apparently feels he has a couple more matches left in him.

How did John Cena become the face of WWE? How did he get picked over Randy Orton?

Becoming the "face" of WWE isn't something where a worker is necessarily picked. Obviously Cena was given a main event push and made the most of it but he earned his spot as the face of the company. While there are many factors that caused Cena to rise to the top the main reason is he is Vince McMahon's money maker. In 2010 John Cena was a $106 million retail brand according to ESPN's Michele Steele.
