It's too bad, since he's easily one of the better wrestlers they have in the company.
Not with what he's shown in the WWE. He was fine tagging w/ Regal, since they could limit his ring time, but he hasn't looked that good in the ring since becoming a singles guy. He seems like he actually regressed in that regard.
1) Same as usual. This isn't the Hogan one - that's a month away - and I don't believe they'd given out a price for that yet. 2) Right now? Loose alliance of different indy promotions who all agree to work together and promote the same world champion.
