I was wondering if there was anyone out there you thought would have taken off as a huge star but for whatever reason it didn't happen?

I can recall years ago there was a talent from the Pacific Northwest named Chance Beckett who had an amazing ECWA Super 8 tournament performance durong a time period where that was one of the "it" shows of the year.  It looked like a star had been born and if you were there, you would have thought he was going to be the next great star in the business.  He was immediately booked for Ring of Honor but missed his debut and then worked one event and that was it.  It felt like whatever momentum he had was lost and while he wrestled a lot in the Pacific Northwest after that, the window was closed and he eventually moved on from the business.

I always felt Paul London could have been the type of babyface Ricky Steamboat was in the 80s on a greater scale but politics and bad booking really led to his run sputtering in WWE and that was it, sadly.  He was still a great performer, but rarely was given the platform to showcase it and I think eventually, that killed a lot of passion for the business, in some ways a precursor to how so many talents are badly handled now in WWE.

Is Tommy Dreamer's House of Hardcore coming back?

I have heard zero plans for that happening.

Was there really a Double Cross Ranch?

Yes, in the Canyon, Texas area.  The Funk family sold it off many years ago, but it was real and I actually purposely drove past the former property a few years ago when I was driving through Amarillo.  There is nothing there to commemorate who used to own it.

Was that Hurricane Helms during the end of Raw?

Yes, he now works for WWE as a Producer.

I was curious what streaming services you use for pro wrestling?

I have Peacock, New Japan World, IWTV.Live and the Highspots Wrestling Network.  I also prefer FITE.TV for PPVs.
