I'd put this in Movies, but let's face it, you're not interested in reading this for the MOVIE. Paul also talks a bit about WWE Films and hits on his own current role with WWE, both in front of and behind the camera.
Obvious question coming out of the interview: Who was the guy they originally tagged for the Inside Out role? Mr. Anderson perhaps? Not sure when it was filmed but I imagine it could've have been sometime around when Anderson left. Or maybe it was someone who ended up re-signing. Curious.
I thought the part of the interview where he talks about straddling the PG/R line helps them keep kids AND adults as fans was quite interesting. I'd argue that straddling that line is exactly what keeps wrestling from becoming rabidly popular again with either segment. Just my $0.02.

I'm not sure but I think it was Batista. As I recall, Batista losing out on a WWE Films role (that went to Triple H) was one of the contributing factors that lead to him leaving WWE. The others being burnout and whatnot.
Thanks! Gimmick matches are fine if not overdone or overused. This way WWE can have their gimmick matches, but they all can be done for a reason and done at meaningful PPV's, since I'm suggesting a 12 PPV line up.
