Does anyone in WWE realize they've given us no reason to care about Survivor Series?

I talked about this in great detail on the We Don't Need No Stinkin' Name Show for Elite subscribers this week.  There's no reason for these champions to fight./  There's no reason for Raw and Smackdown to fight.  There's nothing for anyone to win or earn.  It's silly and it's a sad shame, given this is the second longesrt running WWE PPV and the original concept was fun and different.  In fact, given that the company has less impetus to try and sell PPVs due to the nature of the Peacock deal and the WWE Network, they would be far better served just going back to nothing but Elimination matches.  You can do a Raw bout, a Smackdown bout, a Women's bout, a NXT bout and a Tag Teams bout and just give everyone time to go out and perform, but instead, we are getting what the current presentation is.

Now, are there people in the company who realize how cold the build was?  Of course.  Are they in a position of power to effect change?  Not really.

With WWE talents all over NYC, should we expect Raw talents on Smackdown this week?

Everyone is operating out of New York and the taping is in Connecticut, so I can see that happening.  They certainly need at least a Big E-Roman confrontation.

Will Hook ever wrestle? It feels like he’s been on AEW television forever but he’s yet to have any in-ring action.

No, his entire job is to Hook you into thinking he will, but then never does.  Seriously, he has been training and I am sure he will when AEW creative dictates it's time for it to happen.

Is Chavo Guerrero still with AEW?

Yes, he is taking time off as he's in Australia working as the wrestling coordinator for NBC's Young Rock.

Who were the most important ECW talents of all time in your mind?  What would be the perfect ECW Hall of Fame class?

This is just my opinion, but in no particular order, I'd name are Sabu, Terry Funk, Taz, The Dudley Boys, Tommy Dreamer, Shane Douglas, Rob Van Dam, The Public Enemy, The Sandman, Francine and Raven.  There are others who were great during their time in the company but the 13 I just mentioned had extended runs in the company that stand the test of time.  If there was ever an ECW Hall of Fame, those 13 talents, Paul Heyman, Tod Gordona and Joey Styles would be a pretty perfect first class.

Same question for Smoky Mountain Wrestling?

Smoky Mountain Wrestling started and ended with Jim Cornette, so that's where you start.  From there, it's Brian Hildebrand, then in no particular order, it's Bob Armstrong, The Rock N' Roll Express, Dirty White Boy, The Heavenly Bodies, Tracy Smothers, Chris Candido, Tammy Sytch, Brian Lee and Ron Wright.
