Below is this week’s pro wrestling Q & A here on Examiner.com. If you would like to ask a question, feel free to send me an e-mail at wes_sims22@yahoo.com.

With The Ultimate Warrior’s untimely death, where do you rank him in the modern era?

Without breaking down list, I would say he falls in the third tier of stars from the modern era (which to me is 1985-present). Tier 1 has the likes of Hulk Hogan, Steve Austin, The Rock, Shawn Michaels. Tier 2 to would be the Triple H’s and Randy Savage’s of the world. Tier 3 would include guys like Warrior, Bill Goldberg, and a guy like Kane.

Was TNA putting the World Title on Eric Young a way to copy WWE putting their top title on Daniel Bryan?

It sure seems like it. I’m happy Young is in the spot he is as he’s a very good worker and deserving of the push he is getting. The issue I have with it is Young was a comedy character up until he won the title while Bryan was built up over a period of time and had the big payoff at Wrestle Mania.

I know it’s early but what will headline Summer Slam 2014?

If I had to guess, I would say Daniel Bryan vs. Brock Lesnar will be the main event of Summer Slam.

The Ultimate Warrior's run from 1989-1991 in WWE was one of the hottest runs for any star in the company's history. The highlight came when he defeated Hulk Hogan for the WWE Championship at Wrestle Mania 6.

With Hulk Hogan back with the WWE, rumors will constantly swirl on whether he will work another match. While most think he will not,  there is a chance he could work a bout, possibly a tag team bout.
