Jim Cornette gives his opinions in a very entertaining way, and Twitter is not a good sign for how the world works… Especially wrestling twitter.   With that said, do you see any kind of fan backlash toward the Indy workrate style of pro wrestling championed by the likes of Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks?

I think we already have.  If that style was the wrestling heaven that some people claimed it would be, they would be on a par with Raw.  They aren’t.  There are definitely fans of matches where there aren’t good storylines leading up to them but there is a bigger audience for matches that mean something due to the booking that led up to them.

I'm sure your inbox is full of this question, but... Jeff Jarrett, seriously? Forget that he's on-screen talent, but who in their right mind would hire him in a Business Development role? His recent resume speaks for itself. Global Fail Wrestling. Impact was arguably at its worst when he headed creative. That relationship ending in an ugly lawsuit about more of his creative that honestly had next to no value. What business could he possibly be developing? I'm in shock of how Tony Khan runs a business.   

I definitely found it to be a curious hire given his past as well but honestly, it’s more representative of how Khan runs a business than shocking to me.  It’s pretty much par for the course.  I am happy for Jarrett though.  His life has been the wrestling business, I am glad he is getting paid.

WWE could conceivably have The Rock, Cody Rhodes, and CM Punk available for next Wrestlemania.  If all of them were able and willing to work Wrestlemania, in order of preference, who would you rather have face Roman for the title?

Cody, because he was primed for it before he got hurt.  Then Punk, because he would work more than once.  Finally Rock, since it would be a one off.

While everyone is seemingly solely focussed on TV, in 2022 anything & everything digital matters and means money. This is where WWE completely buries AEW IMO. AEW social feels safe and scripted, while their website offers next to nothing. Is Tony Khan leaving money on the table by ignoring an area WWE has heavily invested in? Yes, their TV brings in big revenue, but it does for WWE and so many others in sports and beyond, and those companies don't ignore their digital product like AEW often does. 

You make a great point.  There is a lot of money to be made in social media and WWE gets that, for sure.

Why is the NXT women's division being pushed so heavily? Is it because WWE management is very high on the NXT women?

Are they being pushed heavily?  I don't think so. I think they are being pushed normally.
