Q & A
August 8, 2006
Q: Do you think Doug Williams could make it in wwe (maybe in a British tag team with paul birchill)
Q: As a wrestler, do you prefer when fans mark out when seeing you?
Q: I have noticed that when Nick Patrick counts, he pushes the shoulder of the wrestler getting pinned up when he comes down for the 3. Why would he do this when other refs don't?
Q: Hey Lance, I loved your match with Bryan Danielson in Ring Of Honor and I
was wondering why when you entered the ring the crowd showered you with
streamers, is this a respect thing? If so do you know when the tradition first started?
Q: I just read your recent Q and A post & in it you said you thought that the womens division in wwe has slipped over the last couple of years because of creative direction. I completely agree. wwe has so many talented women. I personally would like to see the creation of tag team belts for them. What are your thoughts & opinion on this idea?
Q: What advice do you have for women that want to break into the wrestling business whom want to be taken seriously and don't want to be just 'a pretty face'.
Q: I have a question about how WWE title. Do you think by making it "Bling Bling" cheapens it, or does the look have really nothing to do with the prestige behind it?
Q: Do you think the ECW-style fan chants have gotten out of hand? Sometimes it looks like some fans are more interested in chanting than watching the match, and many chants could be offensive to other fans. What is your impression?
Q: Lance, your killing me. I love the Q and A and always read it but I go crazy reading out-of-the-blue questions about events that I have no idea what anyone is talking about. In particular, the most recent Q and A had a question asking if "Rhino really missed his flight or if it was a work to cover him being a no-show?" I've always been a big Rhino mark so naturally I am wondering what this is all about? Please elaborate on this situation and keep up the great work!
Q: Why do you hate/dislike Fred Jung so much?
Q: What percentage of Indy promoters do you think actually run a legit set up that pays workers well and makes them promoter money.
Q: Ever work Hayabusa? If so did you enjoy it and your thoughts on him.
Q: While working indy/japan how hard was it too keep all your bookings straight?
Q: Raven has remarked how well indy promotion pays, is that true for a name guy like raven or yourself?
Q: A lot of guys have said that wrestling results in a lot of acquaintances and not may friends, is that true?
Q: How many people from wrestling do you consider to be friends with?
Q: Did you enjoy doing the music videos is Smokey Mountain Wrestling or were you embarrassed doing them?
Q: Going back to an older Q & A, why is ride jumping mid loop such a bad thing?
Q: Was Jericho OK after the Night of Legends show aside from the broken arm, he was bleeding like a champ during that show.
Q: Ever work abdullah the Butcher? if so how was it?
Q: Why do you always wear an elbow pad on the left elbow only?
Q: What happened between you and Teddy Long?
Q: Is Jim Ross similar to the way he is portrayed on WWE TV as the down home country boy?
Q: If you get another chance to wrestle Chris Jericho, will you make it your last match for good, or would you give it up again?
Q: Is Kenny from The Spirit Squad related to referee Jack Doan?
Q: What was the official name for your finisher, the rolling half crab? I've heard it named the Canadian Maple Leaf, Calgary Crab, Half Boston Crab. Just what was the official name for the move.
Q: Lance,in my opinion the fall of 1999 was my favorite period of time watching ECW.The Impact Players were red hot and not even the returning Raven and Sandman could stop you. I was wondering if you could share a couple funny stories or memories from the 1999 November 2 Remember Impact Players/Rhino vs Dreamer/Raven/Sandman feud time period?
Q: Do you have any good Vince McMahon stories? Either involving you or someone you know?
Q I asked last year if you'd see a Rocky VI if it came out and you said no. However, would you at least look at the trailer for Rocky Balboa (aka Rocky VI) and if it was good, would you see it?
Q: Do you think Chris Benoit's 3 German Suplex sequence lessened the effect of how the crowd views the impact of a single german suplex?
Q: Have you had a chance to watch the D-X storyline? If so, what do you think? I think it's refreshing to put a little comedy back into wrestling but are the writers running out of ideas since they have gone back to an old storyline?.
Q: I don't know if you read the "Rise and Fall of ECW" book recently released. If so, were you disappointed as I was that so much seemed to have come directly from the DVD and so little was new material (plus calling Mick Foley "Mike" one is inexcusable).
Q: How tough of a guy is Sabu considered by the boys backstage?
Q: Why does there seem to be a lot of matches spilling over into the crowd? It seemed bigger in ECW than WWE, but it in my opinion it makes it hard to see in person and awkward on TV, what is the point of going into the stands?
Q: Thoughts on Tommy Dreamer, strictly from a in ring point of view?
Q: Was it awkward working RVD at Barely Legal, you being somewhat new and him being some what unhappy ?
Q: How far up the WWE ladder do you see Charlie Haas making it?
Q: Did you enjoy working Bam Bam Bigelow, How does he rate as a big man worker?
Q: In the last Q & A you said you have worked guy you did not think could protect you in the ring, how do you get around that and work with them?
Q: During your busiest year as a pro, how many days that year were you on the road?
Q: Before signing up to train with the Harts, did you think Bret would be involved in the training at all?
Q: Any interest in doing another shoot video?
Q: Why do you think that tag teams are not given much thought in WWE anymore? Seems like a great way to push 2 talents to me.
Q: I know some wrestlers that share rental cars think it's disrespectful for passengers to sleep since the driver doesn't have that luxury. But with the schedule (only getting 3-4 hours of sleep per night) most of the boys have, it would seem like the perfect time to catch a quick nap. What is your opinion of passengers sleeping in a shared rental car?
Q: You mentioned in a recent Q&A that if WWE put out a Lance Storm DVD they would have to pay you royalties. I know you don't know the specifics of the Ultimate Warrior's contract, but I got the impression that they didn't have to pay him any royalties for the
DVD they did on him. Your thoughts?
Q: Hey, I read a rumor recently that Kane is considering retiring as early as January next year, do you think he will? He's in such good shape, I can't see it happening. Also, do you ever see him winning the WWE/World Heavyweight Championship again some day down the track? He sure deserves it!
