I'm looking at the roster of released talent over the last several years and I'm surprised that I don't see Baron Corbin's name on it.  The guy's got size and is willing to take on any gimmick they give him so I suppose those are two very good attributes for longevity, but I honestly can't see any other reason. But perhaps my judgment is clouded by the fact that I just don't find him watchable. I can't stand the Miz either but he seems to have a loyal fanbase.  So if you'd like, make the WWE's case for Baron Corbin. I'd like to know what I'm not seeing...

I don’t have to make the case for him or anyone else on the roster.  The company keeps the talent that they feel they can use in storylines.  It doesn’t matter what you or I think.

I became disenfranchised from Raw and Smackdown several years ago.  I just couldn’t invest the time in a product I mostly disliked every week anymore.  NXT became my go to wrestling show.  AEW came along and if kinda went back and forth.  Now it’s starting to happen with NXT for several reasons.  I feel like NXT has lost its edge a little bit with comedy gimmicks like the Grimes/Dibiase storyline and the goofball way The Way is often presented.  The biggest reason though is related to performers moving on to the main roster.  I became fans of performers like Aleistar Black, Andrade, Ruby Riott, Keith Lee, Dijakovic, and others only to see them horribly misused or as we’ve seen recently outright released.  I have pretty much zero confidence Vince McMahon will use ANYONE who becomes a star or does well in NXT properly on the main roster.  It’s gotten to a point I hope many of them end up in AEW just so I get to see them perform.  What’s your take?  Do you get this same sentiment from other people?

You must not be an Elite member because oh yes, there are a lot of people that feel the way that you do.  It’s really hard to watch talents perform at a top level in NXT and be used so poorly on the main roster.

Every time Hulk Hogan opens his mouth it he always exaggerates or lies. For example he claimed Andre the Giant died right after WrestleMania 3. He claimed that the George Foreman grill was originally meant for him but he missed a phone call. Not to mention his appearances on documentaries where’s he’s all over the place. He’s one of the top 5 stars in wrestling history and perhaps the greatest draw of all time. Why does his feel the need to make up stuff? Is it insecurity or does he think that because he’s Hulk Hogan people will believe anything he says?

I won’t say he always exaggerates but he does it far too often.  I don’t know him so I have no idea what his mindset is.  It’s especially ridiculous when he says things that are easy to prove aren’t true.  I have no idea what his thought process is.

If you were to guess where do you see Samoa Joe ending up if he’s cleared to wrestle?

If I were him, at 42 with some health issues in the past, I think the AEW schedule would be most appearing to me.

With the way they have missed talent does WWE have the fewest number of potential future main eventers than ever before? It seems that nobody on the undercard on either show has strong momentum and being built up strong. It can’t be Reigns Lashley and McIntyre forever.

On the one hand, Vince McMahon believe he can get someone hot whenever he wants to.  On the other hand, there is the case you made.  I am on team you here.  As usual, it all comes down to bad booking by Vince and his team.
