Do you think that having only one 30-man Royal Rumble match at the Royal Rumble PPV is a thing of the past and why?

Actually I don’t ever see them having anything but one 30 man match.  There is no reason to have two.  If you meant will they ever get rid of the Women’s match, of course not.  That would be a dumb move and they aren’t dumb.

Have you heard about any frustration coming from MJF regarding his big return being overshadowed by the Punk/Elite catastrophe?

I haven’t, no.  It doesn’t mean he wasn’t frustrated but if he was, I can’t report it.

Would Punk return to WWE now that Hunter is running things? I know they have animosity with each other but couldn't the style of booking Hunter want favor Punk?

I will never speak for Punk and what he would or wouldn’t do but if it was me, I would absolutely consider it.  Triple H the booker is not Triple H the wrestler.  I think if Punk wanted to go to WWE, Triple H would use him very well.  He understands the Punk character.  Vince never did.  Will it happen?  I can’t say but if I were him and I was done with AEW, I would definitely consider WWE if I wanted to keep wrestling.

What of the many titles AEW has would you keep if they were to cut back?

I keep the TNT, World and Tag team Titles.  That’s it.  The rest are noise.

Has there been any talk of NXT expanding to other areas of the world? Maybe NXT Asia or Africa or South America?

Talk?  Absolutely.  Triple H has said he would love to do it in the past.  The focus now is on establishing NXT Europe.  Then we will see what they do after that.
