    As noted on the main page, WZ will be adding a brand new Mailbag section on the site starting May 1 running twice a week, Tuesdays and Thursdays.

    You can send in questions two ways, by emailing them into WZMailbag@gmail.com, or by asking via this thread. Questions answered on the site will remain anonymous, but if you want to remain completely anonymous, emailing your questions in is a safer bet as anyone can see who posted questions on the forum or in the comment section.

    The feature will be hosted by the newest WZ staff member, Max Cruze, but will feature other staff members on a regular basis.

    Due to the overwhelming amount of questions we will receive, not all will be answered but all questions will certainly be considered and reviewed! So please do not by any means be discouraged or hesitant to ask questions as often or as many as you’d like!

    Back in the old days, the WWE would hold its PPVs cities such as Louisville and Providence. Today, it seems as if though the WWE holds its PPVs in the same cities (six cities in particular, Chicago, St. Louis, New York City, Los Angeles, Boston, and Philadelphia get a PPV every year) while some cities such as Seattle and Kansas City almost never get a PPV. Is it because some cities draw more than others (not to mention that STL is Randy Orton's hometown)? Thanks!

    With the WWE Netowrk having PPV's 'on demand' do you think this may increase the possibility of London having a Wrestlemania and the powers that be not having to worry about the difference in time?

    With WWE Management reportedly being very impressed with the Stardust character as of late (not to mention Vince McMahon's hostility towards Dusty Rhodes), do you think the Cody Rhodes character has been retired?

    Do you think that the reason The Authority lasted so long in the WWE is because Triple H and Stephanie McMahon's backstage roles have an effect on The Authority and also do you think the reason why they nixed the rumored Vince McMahon-Triple H power struggle storyline is because Vince is high on The Authority?

    Can you please explain what the point of an on air contract signing for a match is? It seems like only one out of a hundred matches need a contract.

    I believe that the contract signing thing makes no sense, is over done and always ends up being the same thing with a table being flipped and the opponents brawling. Technically speaking shouldn't every match have a signing? What are your thoughts on them? Are they proof of lazy creative booking?

    Do you think the gimmicks now compared to the attitude era ( I use this as the example as its what i watched) is one of the reasons guys don't get as over these days?

    Back then you had The Rock who was the smack talking peoples champ, Stone Cold Steve Austin the anti authority blue collar hero, the cerebal assasin, the game, that damn good Triple H, the olympic gold medalist, legitimate athlete, Kurt Angle etc

    These days the gimmicks lack depth, we have a show off, an awesome one etc. These are normal guys who people com across every day.These guys can wrestle but there is no dimension to them.

    The most over star right now:The lunatic fringe Dean Ambrose because he has dimensions, Bray Wyatt has a proper gimmick. Seth Rollins has great character development.

    So do you think the WWE are letting themselves down with the lack of strong gimmicks?

    Not sure if this question was asked before but since triple h said that chyna would not be in the hall of fame because of her porn career. Would sunny be removed from the hall of fame if she was to start performing in pornography?

    Do you think that the Bella Twins are preventing the likes of Charlotte and Sasha Banks from being promoted to the main roster because I heard rumors that Kevin Dunn isn't very high on the two NXT Divas?

    When Michael Cole's weekly sit-down interviews debuted back in 2013, his guest was almost always Triple H except when either The Authority is on vacation or in the weeks heading into WrestleMania and SummerSlam. However in recent months, Triple H has been replaced with the likes of John Cena, Seth Rollins and other WWE Superstars. Do you think that Triple H has been pretty much dropped as Cole's subject in his interviews?

    Regarding WWE visiting the same locations for its PPV's, one of the cities that WWE loves to go is St. Louis, Missouri. It has hosted a PPV every year since 2012 (the 2012 Royal Rumble, 2013 Extreme Rules, 2014 Survivor Series and will be hosting 2015 Battleground and 2016 Fast Lane) as well as RAW's 1,000th show. Do you think that the Scottrade Center has replaced Madison Square Garden as Vince McMahon's favorite venue?

    So just about every member of the Kilq is in the HOF with the exception of X-Pac. While he was a great performer, I don't think he is worthy of a HOF induction. What is your standpoint on this? Does he go in? Is it next year? (It seems like every year a new member goes in) should he go in?

    There are some talents that are just awesome in my opinion that are no longer with the WWE. People such as
    SHELTON BENJAMIN
    SCOTT STEINER
    AJ STYLES
    DREW MCINTYRE
    REY MYSTERIO
    ALBERTO DEL RIO
    CM PUNK
    JOHN MORRISON

    I'm your opinion, of that that list, who is the closest to coming back to the WWE? Is there anyone I missed?

    So apparently little Maxy complained that I posted my thoughts on here to get it deleted. It's brutal that he can't accept the reality that he does a lousy job.

    This time around he feels:

    - Daniel Bryan would HEADLINE the HoF next year if he had to retire..... Ummm, no..
    - he seems to feel lucky that his mother let's him watch whatever he wants on TV
    - Clearly he doesn't watch WWE programming since Cena vs Rollins seems to be the way that WWE is going for Summerslam and yet in his column TODAY, he said that this is not the way that WWE is going. Further he says that John Cena, a guy who has consistently had amazing matches will no longer be in the title picture. Ask anyone who follows wrestling and it's obvious that Cena will get reigns 16 and 17.
    - Michael Cole is part of what he thinks is the best announce team ever.... Dear lord...

    This exact question was taken from PWInsider. For the record, so was Maxy's answer.

    This question was also taken from PWInsider. For the record, their answers are far more credible.

    Oh dear lord......

    Maxy has reached levels of incompetence not seen in ages....

    - First, he has had the commentection closed on his Mailbag
    - Second, the grammar in his article is just brutal
    - Next, he states Cesaro is getting a title shot.
    - He, also, tries to tout this site as being very highly looked upon.
    - Then he is critical of Smackdown but says he rarerly watches it.
    - Also, he believes that certainly wrestling mags will not go away because they are like this site.
    - Finally, it is just a simple lack of basic knowledge that makes his column simply infantile.

    Look, Maxy, if you want people to look at what you do as anything other than a word vomit hack piece, do a better job.

    My question is how did Max Cruze get a mail bag column?

    I agree with everything the above poster said. The guy is clueless. Who would ever ask his opinion on anything? He's an embarrassment to this site. I used to only click on the feature to read the comments, which are now blocked. Please no one click on his crap so hopefully he won't post any more.

    My god he is a loser.

    I mean, look, I'm sure he's not a bad kid. He seems to think he likes wrestling. He wanted to try his hand at writing.....ok.....sure. I want to try my hand at flying a plane. Do you think an airline will hand me controls in a cockpit? Nope.

    Maxy is doing this because he wants to and he thinks he should. This site has given him that chance and should hold the brunt of the responsibility for letting it go on. He should be held accountable for how bad he is and for not even trying to get better. Comments like how he claims to stand by what he says and that he feels he's doing a great job, aren't helping him.

    Now, rather than cutting him off and sending him packing, WZ cuts the debacle back to once a week and closes the comments section so that no one can tell it like it is. I guess when you consider all the comments that get deleted in other writers' columns, this is the resolution that should be expected.

    So, Maxy posted another 'mailbag', and he reaches new levels of ineptitude. Upon cutting and pasting a question from another site, he answered it with this:

    That would be the most logical option for WWE but it doesn’t look like they’re going down that path, unfortunately. It’s sad because getting rid of the US Title leaves less opportunity for the mid card. I would be fine with a merger if the WHC was still around but since that is gone, they have to get it back in play somehow. Besides, what was the point of Cena losing the title if they are just going to keep it on Rollins. It doesn’t really make Rollins look any stronger.
    The question of course was whether or not Rollins would work two matches at NoC. The column was posted shortly after Raw began. Rollins walked in the back with both belts, so it has not been gotten 'rid of'. Further, they then booked the match that he said they wouldn't. For the record, it was a pretty obvious booking decision given the week before, Cena got screwed and then got sent 'out of the building'. It was exactly the path they made it look like they were going down and then went down it.

    Maxy, look, I know you're not very knowledgeable, and aren't a very good writer, but you could put a mild amount of effort into this.

    Finally, it's funny that there are virtually no more comments posted for him, there are no questions posted and Maxy still gives 'er the old college try. I',d assume there are virtually no comment because they are either being deleted, or people were tired of them being deleted and have just stopped. Way to go, WZ!!

    Whatever happened to the mailbag, I never see it anymore? Was it discontinued?

    SHHHHH, my guess is that they hoped no one would notice and Maxy could just go away...

    Well this seems to have gone down south judging by the posts. So Imma close it.

    For the record, this is main site stuff and has nothing to do with the forums. But it's taking up space and attention. So, closed.
