I am here to answer your WWE and TNA questions to the best of my ability. I'm having fun with it, so don't expect all the answers to be serious! Click here to add me on Facebook.

How in trouble is the wrestling business? With TNA still struggling and WWE becoming more boring it seems, they have to rely on old superstars to sell shows (Rock, Brock, HHH, Taker). How long can this continue to go on?

As far as TNA goes, as long as they remain on a low budget and Spike TV wants wrestling programming, TNA will stay in business. Whatever problems there are with WWE creatively, they are still a profitable company and that is what counts at the end of the day. In all likelihood, you will only see real changes in the company if they start losing money.

What did you think about the return of Christian at tonights RAW? In my opinion I think WWE should of waited until they could of put him into a more important match. Such as the money in the bank? Your thoughts?

RVD's coming back at the PPV so it wouldn't be a good idea to have Christian return. If WWE kept waiting for the perfect moment, Christian probably would have never returned.

Is it right that WWE are charging for a "rocked up" version of Flight of the Valkyries, a classical peice of music by Richard Wagner? A beautiful classical piece thats copyright free and in the public domain.

I don't have a problem with it. WCW did something similar with Pomp and Circumstance for Randy Savage and I never saw an issue.

Hey Aaron, it seems that after time even the most hated heels get cheered, ie, Ric Flair and Roddy Pipper, Now are there any Wrestlers that have maintained being hated and booed with out getting the "Legend" face pop?

No because if they were hated and booed, the fans wouldn't think of them as legends.

In your opinion, what was the best Bound for Glory ppv? I would have to say either the original in 2005, or BFG 2007.

I liked 2006 because of the show's overall quality and the 2009 edition because TNA at least made an effort to get the younger talent over.

Hi Aaron, even though he was one of the Attitude Era's biggest stars, do u think the Road Dogg was underrated? He could have had a rivalry with SCSA, The Rock, Y2J etc A feud with one of them could have been epic as The Road Dogg was very good on the mic

He was good on the mic but also had the catchphrases. As an overall performer, I wouldn't put him at the level of Austin/Rock/Jericho and so forth.

What would happen if the winner of the royal rumble match was accidentally eliminated or got seriously injured halfway threw match?

I don't know because it's never happened. I'm sure they have a backup plan if something goes wrong.

Yo in comparison which is better at making talent TNA or WCW your thoughts ?

WCW because they actually made a few big money stars like Goldberg, crow Sting, and DDP.

Hi Aaron, Love the show...TNA has done over 30 Ultimate X matches within 10 years. Which waters down the match to me. Do you think if TNA brought back "The King Of The Mountain" match people would be interested?

I never liked that match stipulation. I thought it was too much of a clusterf***.

whats you take on ravens career?

Good career. He was a big player in ECW but not as much in WCW or WWE. WCW could have done more with him.

WWE always seems to try to have impressive spots like Ryback through the roof, the spotlight incident, and breaking through the wall like at the last PPV, is it just me or are they just not as impressive as the ones they used to do?

They are a bit safer if that is the answer you are looking for.

What would happen if a top superstar in WWE (Let's say John Cena) decides to change the outcome of his match for his benefit during the match? Here's a scenario: It's a tables match for the WWE title. Cena's opponent has him up then Cena just AA's him

He'd lose his job.
