Whatever happened to Winona Little Heart?

She retired years ago.  She passed away in 2020.

Loved your review of the Extreme Rules show (can't call it a PPV). I think the bright spot of the event was how hard the wrestlers (not entertainers Vince) worked. As far as you know, what is the state of the WWE locker room when they see AEW and even Impact doing a much better job at booking?

I can’t say that there is any consensus or anything but it’s fair to say that the talent is aware of AEW and is really glad it’s there.  They know that there is a potential place to go if they leave WWE.  As for the booking, I haven’t talked to anyone in the company that enjoys reading the verbiage that the company writes for them but they also knew what they were getting into when they signed on with the company.

Following up on the booking, you've been a critic of Tony Kahn in the past, but he has improved. Is it because he listens to the public and the wrestlers?

I think he listens, for sure.  I give him credit for that.  I also think part of it as him growing as a booker.  He had never done it before.  Growing pains were to be expected.  The key would be whether he made needed changes and he has.

One question on the show itself. It seems that AEW is doing a better job at letting the fans' enthusiasm roll over into the broadcast. It looks like WWE is controlling the noise from fans, which I noticed are not as emotionally involved as AEW fans?

I think it’s fair to say that the enthusiasm from the AEW fans seems a hell of a lot more genuine and invested than what WWE fans deliver.  I don’t blame the WWE fans either, it’s hard to get super excited for much of what WWE gives them to watch.

Last question. This is a no brainer, Do you think that the four hours AEW produced were better than the three hours WWE invested in Extreme Rules? Knowing that fans had a hard time getting into the Arthur Ashe venue and knowing they sat for more than five hours of wrestling, including the Danielson-Omega match which blew everyone away, they still were so much into it.

Yes, AEW won that one, easily.  I liked Dynamite more than Rampage but both were far better than Extreme Rules.
