If ROH is dead, why are there still Ring of Honor Championship defenses?

Ring of Honor as we knew it no longer exists.  Joe Koff says the company will return in April, so they are allowing the titles to continue to be defended as sort of an unofficial bridge between the shutdown and promised return.

Will ROH have a new booker when they return?

No.  Joe Koff told PWInsider.com that Hunter Johnston aka Delirious would remain in that role.

I know you mentioned you'd like to see Adrian Adonis and Dick Murdoch being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.  Do we even know if there is going to be a Hall of Fame ceremony over Wrestlemania weekend?

We are told that currently, there's no official plan for if and when the HOF will take place.  It's in the to be determined pile currently.  My guess is that WWE could always move the Hall of another big PPV weekend to remove it from "having" to be done Wrestlemania week.  I like the idea of adding it to Survivor Series weekend to amp up that show's profile a little, especially since traditionally, that was the weekend where it originally took place in the 1990s.

Why are there WWE PPVs on Saturdays now?

It's a Nick Khan call.  He wanted to create a situation where they could time PPVs  for when they could be part of major weekends, such as New Year's Eve this weekend in Atlanta and make it easier for fans to travel to and from.  I actually prefer the Saturday night idea personally.

If Danielson and Page go to another 60 minute draw, doesn't that prove Tony Khan is devoid of any booking ideas?

No, it proves he's willing to let talents do things that are pretty unique and play to their strengths.  As long as the match is great and they have character and storyline development out of the scenario, it doesn't matter to me if a match is 15 minutes or 90 minutes.  It's about the build to the moment, giving the audience what they want and having a compelling way to continue the story.  If Khan (or anyone) does that, that's what being a good booker or match-maker is about, in my mind.  

How can AEW use Battle of the Belts when it was used by the NWA?

It hadn't been trademarked or utilized in a long time, so the promotion opted to capitalize on that, the same way MLW did years ago with Wargames.  AEW filed for a trademark on the name way back in January 2021.

If you could gift pro wrestling one thing, what would it be?

Every single promotion that isn't being paid for TV rights fees draws at least 5,000 paid to every show.
