I wanted to ask, as I watch both WWE and AEW - is it just me, or are the crowd reactions on AEW shows a lot more... Human sounding, for lack of better terms?

It's not you.  In AEW you not only HEAR the cheers, but you see people cheering.  In WWE, that is not the case a lot of the time.  And frankly, it’s a bad optic for WWE.  We “hear” people cheering when we see that they are not.

In 2009, John Cena and DX did a bunch of dumb WWE comedy skits with Hornswoggle. In 2001 Steve Austin and Kurt Angle did a bunch of dumb WWF comedy skits with Vince McMahon.  Watching them now, I do find them entertaining, maybe because it’s the stars doing the skits, probably having more leeway with what they can do, and it looks like they’re have a ball doing them.  I’m wondering if you found the same joy from that stuff, even if it is stupid.

I am a big fan of stupid comedy when it's done correctly, like Sami Zayn vs. Johnny Knoxville at WrestleMania.  The Steve Austin-Kurt Angle stuff was classic.  To me, good stupid always has a place in the business.  Bad stupid?  Not so much.

What’s your take on the idea that CM Punk’s run in AEW is a tribute to and emulation of Bret Hart?

I think Punk respects Bret a lot and will pay homage when the situation is there but his run right now is about him and his own legacy in my opinion.

I really need to take you to task for calling Tammy Sytch “vile”.  I think that was totally out of line, uncalled for and offensive……to vile people everywhere.  Not even vile people want to be associated with Tammy Sytch.

You know, you have a point.  She reportedly blew a 0.28 after she killed that poor man.  You are correct, she is far worse than vile.

Is it possible that WWE allowed Jeff Hardy to debut in AEW with his WWE music as a trade for Cody Rhodes’ music?

I was told at the time he debuted that Cody had the rights to his music and character.
