Yes, it's back and so am I. One thing I have noticed is a lot of questions sent have been answered in the past. I'll try my best to have the FAQ section updated later in the month with the previously asked questions. Like that it'll be a lot easier to navigate through the questions.

The following questions were answered by Paul Nemer:
Could you please settle an argument between myself and my roommate? Who was LazerTron? He says it was Owen Hart, I said it was Hector Guerrero. Which one of us is right?
I say your friend needs to educate himself a little bit by visiting WrestleView more often :) LazerTron was indeed Hector Guerrero.
I read a reference to The Rock pulling a screwjob on Mankind, at Survivor Series '98. Any validity to this?
I'll put this nice and clear, there has been one real life screwjob in the WWE in the past eight years, and that was in 1997. Anything after that is an angle/storyline. Now as far The Rock and Mankind, yes, they did a screwjob angle. There was a tournament to crown a new WWF champion at that time, and Rock faced Mankind in the finals. Considering this was 1998, a year after the real screwjob, Vince McMahon decided to do the same finish. McMahon was at ringside as Rock put the sharpshooter on Mankind and the bell rang, awarding Rock the WWF championship. That was also done to turn the Rock heel.
Is it in Undertaker's contract that he can't be defeated at WrestleMania?
Certainly not. The undefeated number kept adding up throughout the years and then at one point everyone realized that the Undertaker was still undefeated at WrestleMania's and it wasn't until three years ago that it became a big deal and the WWE started to mention it a lot in storylines (for the hype). The Undertaker is Vince McMahon's favorite creation and I don't see him being defeated at a WrestleMania unless it was his retirement match or something.
What was the situation with Owen & Davey in the aftermath of the Montreal screwjob? Did he want to leave or is the rumor true and that he stayed in WWE to step out of his brother's shadow?
Definitely not. They were both on Bret Hart's side and Davey Boy Smith did pay a huge amount of money to get out of his WWF contract, but Owen was locked in. Vince McMahon wouldn't give Owen his release, the reason why he wouldn't let Owen out was to screw with Bret. Bret tried his best to get Owen out of his WWF contract. Bret talked to Eric Bischoff about bringing Owen to WCW and Bischoff agreed to bring Owen in but with the same salary as the WWF was paying him. But Vince McMahon didn't allow it and threatened to sue Bret if he was to interfere with Owen's contract again.
Both Sid Justice and Jake Roberts were supposed to captain opposing teams at the 1991 Survivor Series. Neither man appeared on that event in a wrestling capacity. Can you please tell me why they didn't wrestle?
There was the Tuesday in Texas show in less than a week after Survivor Series and Jake Roberts was facing Macho Man Randy Savage, I believe he was given the night off. As for Sid, he was injured.
