DID WWE WANT TO RUN FANS OFF WITH THE BATTLEGROUND ENDING, HEYMAN VS. MISSY AT BASH '91, SINCLAIR & ROH AND MORE

Does Sinclair Broadcasting Group have quarterly conference calls for investors/journalists? I'm wondering if they discuss the profits/losses from ROH. If they do, would pwinsider consider covering the news from those quarter numbers?

They are a publicly traded company, thus they would have to release information for stockholders. I don't believe they have ever really relayed anything related to ROH business in their calls, which is why they aren't covered here. If they ever do, we'll cover it, same as we would any other promotion.

I just watched Battleground. So to sum up the PPV, Bray Wyatt is now a jobber, Cesaro was eliminated by Heath Slater with no fanfare, Miz wins by hiding in plain sight on the floor and Reigns has now failed twice to win the championship. My question is, who is this on? Is this Vince holding on to creative, or is Triple H going to follow the same stale path? If this was their idea of trying to hold on to subscribers, I can see a mass exodus coming from the Network.

At the end of the day, every creative decision is vetted by Vince McMahon. The blame and the credit, depending on how you feel about the shows, lies with him.

Has RVD already left WWE again? He wasn't even in the battle royal on the PPV and has done nothing but job the last several weeks.

As we reported, he was pulled from Battleground due to an injury.

On a post you made on instagram with the original Great American Bash 91 poster, it said that it was supposed to be the Steiners & Missy Hyatt vs Paul E Dangerously, Arn Anderson & Barry Windham. Well what happened to that match when Windham got moved up to Flair's place? Did Scott Steiner get hurt & they just made it a mixed tag or could they not find a replacement to be Arn's partner?

They did a mixed tag with Rick Steiner and Missy Hyatt vs. Arn Anderson & Paul E. Dangerously. Then, the Maryland State Athletic Commission wouldn't allow a man to wrestle a woman, so the Hardliners kidnapped Missy at Paul's behest and instead Steiner wrestled a handicap match. Scott was injured.

I just have a question about a person I saw in your "this day in history" section about a wrestler named Farmer Jerome. Who was that man and why can't I find anything about him online. Was he well known?

Farmer Jerome was a midget wrestler who wrestled in the 1970s in the United States and Canada. Beyond match results, I don't know much about him.
