With the digital age, why do wrestlers still insist on keeping personal pictures and videos on their phones or in the cloud?

The same reason everyone else does, an assumption that their personal content is safe.  However, if you are referring to content that has leaked in recent months, let's not forget that the content was sent to someone else and there's always a chance that other party decided to purposely leak it.  One never knows, but if that was the case, there's no way to protect against that.

I was wondering if there was any consideration on bringing back the World TV Title for the Smackdown brand. You could have that belt up for grabs at the Money in the Bank PPV and have six competitors (Luke Harper, Mojo Rawley, Tye Dillinger, Erick Rowan, Xavier Woods, and Tyler Breeze) fight for it. This would help groom the lower midcard for a possible U.S. Title run and, possibly, a WWE title run. It just gives the roster more depth and importance from top to bottom. They call Smackdown the land of opportunity so why not.

There's no need to have a World TV title when you have the WWE and United States championships.    The TV belt is fine as a secondary title but WWE already has a pair of those.   I don't see it happening.

With Jeff Jarrett in charge of Impact what's the status of his promotion Global Force Wrestling?

Based on statement Ed Nordholm has made, the GFW brand will be folded into Impact and from then on, I guess Jarrett will keep it in his pocket in case he ever needs it for a rainy day down the line.

Impact has announced a working agreement with Pro Wrestling NOAH but there have been no NOAH stars on Impact.  Any idea when that may happen?

Sources indicate they are working on getting work visas sorted but that process takes time and there's no current timetable.

What are Lance Russell and Randy Hales up to these days?

Lance is long-retired beyond making a few appearances a year and is living in Florida, I believe.  He was just inducted into the Memphis Wrestling Hall of Fame at Jerry Lawler's restaurant in Memphis,

Hales still lives in Memphis and manages the day to day operations of Lawler's restaurant.
