Q & A
August 29, 2006
Q: What moves would you say are the hardest to execute or receive without getting seriously injured? And which moves probably result in most serious injuries?
Q: Do newcomers into the WWE have any say at all in their "gimmick", theme music, or ring attire for their debut and eventual career?
Q: If you could only see one more 1 on 1 60-minute Iron Man Match, who would
you like to see in it?
Q: Do you (or your webmaster) ever collate statistics for where people view your website from?
Q: So here's my question, if you were still in active competition, would you refuse to wrestle someone who was known for one time being a backyarder? Are you totally against all kinds of backyard wrestling, or do you feel that some of it isn't all completely bad?
Q: I've hard a lot of good stories about actual lockerroom/backstage fights between wrestlers. I SERIOUSLY doubt you've been in many because of your positive attitude but please tell a good actual fight story you witnessed or heard about at some point in your career.
Q: Since Stacy Keibler left, Trish is going to get married and into acting, and I've heard Lita is also getting into acting, although she's not wrestling much, do you think that the WWE will try to bring some outside help in with women or call up from DSW or OVW, or do you think that those 3 gone will pretty much destroy what's left of the women's division? Trish and Mickie are the only women actually wrestling that could hold the title. Melina wrestles to, she could get it. But if Trish leaves, who could take her place as the top face female?
Q: What do you think of Umaga as the only real monster heel in the WWE? He seems just like a rip off of the classic Abdullah the Butcher, Kamala, Meng/Haku character.
Q: Is there anyone on the TNA roster that you would really like to wrestle?
Q: Do you think Ring of Honor could be the next revolutionary underground promotion much like the Stampede Wrestling and ECW's of the past?
Q: Who were some of the most genuinely nice wrestlers you have met while working in WWE, ECW, and the WCW?
Q: Who were some of the best conversationalists on those long trips to and from shows?
Q: Chris Jericho mentioned the term "rats" in a recent interview (I believe it pertains to groupies). Do many of the wrestlers have "groupies" like the rock stars?
Q: Have u read Martha Hart's book 'Broken Harts-The life and Death Of Owen Hart', If so what were ur thoughts?
Q: Do u think it's appropriate for Chavo and Rey to have a feud built around a real-life tragedy and to involve Vicki in it no less. Is there a line that WWE has crossed?
Q: I was wondering about ur impressions of Randy Orton as a person/performer?
Q: If u could change one thing about the current WWE product what would it be?
Q: AMW have been the best tag team in the world for the past 4 years now in my opinion but they have accomplished everything they can in TNA & gone kinda stale no, Do you think they should go to the WWE together & how well do you think they would do there?
Q: I was just wondering.....and i don't know if you ever wrestled in it or not....but in WCW on their show Saturday night...they used to wrestle in the ring, but it was on this contraption where it would spin. wouldn't this make it harder to work if the ring is spinning?
Q: I just heard this week Heath Ledger was cast to play the Joker in Dark Knight, the second Batman. Do you think he will pull off a a good Joker charactor or will we just have to live with the BrokeBat Mountain jokes for nothing?
Q: Whats the worst experience you've ever had at a hotel in the states? Like if you got woke up with gun shots in the next room, or their were rats bigger than Rey Jr in the room?
Q: What is your opinion of the incident that occurred during, I believe the last Tough Enough competition, between Daniel Puder and Kurt Angle?
Q: Do you think now that WWE has launched their own version of ECW that they might think about relaunching the WCW name again? I've always thought they should've kept the WCW name anyway as it would give the feeling of 2 distinct brands instead of just Raw and Smackdown. And Smackdown already has the 2 big WCW singles titles.
Q: Do wrestlers really find titles as important as it appears on television?
Q: Do you like the concept of shoot videos or do you think they reveal too much of behind the scenes info?
Q: Did you use to or maybe still do get other workers calling wanting you to try to get them a job in wrestling?
Q: Raven has said that Paul Heyman is the greatest wrestling mind he has ever been around, you agree?
Q: Did you ever work Nova, is so how was it?
Q: What to you think of Raven's work in the ring?
Q: Were you in ECW during the Raven/Sandman Crucifixion angle, if so your what were your thoughts on the angle and Raven's apology for it.
Q: What are your thoughts on Tommy Dreamer for a booking/creative standpoint?
Q: I know this is way out on the hypothetical question tree, but say the Vince/Hart screw-job was reversed, where Bret screwed Vince and changed the finish, would there be as much heat on Bret and sympathy for Vince?
Q: How ingrained is going for a pinfall? I ask, because you see guys go for a pin quite a bit in matches where no pin is required, such as ladder matches.
Q: Hey Lance, because you are putting all the matches you have onto DVD. Is there any chance that you will sell them on the website.
Q: Looks like you were "smart with your money" How did you do it? Real estate? Gold & silver? American stock exchange? Please tell.
Q: I heard so much about a wrestler named CM Punk. I hear that he's really talented, he's really this, and he's really that. Before making his debut in ECW, I've never seen him work. When I finally did get the chance to see him; I wasn't really impressed. He looks like a copycat Somoa Joe but slower. That should be a low blow for Punk because Joe is a much bigger man. Question is what do you think about CM Punk?
Q: Are you aware that Christoper Nowinski (IMO, very underrated) stole your Q&A idea?
Q: Christopher Nowinski mentioned on his site that he rode with you and Christian Cage. If that is true, how come you never bring that up?
Q: Are you still eating and exercizing like you were during your wrestling days
or have you eased up at all?
Q: What originally drew you toward adopting a mat based wrestling style as opposed to any other style?
Q: In the last commentary you mentioned referrees wearing earpieces. What other
things are they being told from backstage?
Keep the questions coming,
