Why hasn't WWE run the Westchester County Center since returning to touring?

I don't believe they can.  I don't believe the County Center has returning itself since shutting down during the pandemic.

I seem to remember attending a free WCW show in Manhattan years ago, but all I remember is Goldberg being there.  My parents took me and they say they don't remember.  Any idea when or where this was or did I have a Goldberg fever dream?

You 100% are not having a fever dream, because I was at this event as well.  It was at Battery Park presented as a promotional attraction for The Goodwilld Games in August 1998.  Goldberg defeated Curt Hennig in the main event.  The other matches were:

*Steve Ray beat Mongo McMichael.
*Villano IV defeated El Dandy.
*Dave Finley defeated Disco Inferno.
*Dean Malenko defeated Chris Jericho.

When international talents come in to work independents, do they get work visas?

If they are working for reputable promotions, they do.  There are times when talents cross the border saying they are coming in as tourists and then wrestle, or say they are wrestling for free, etc. but as technology gets better, it's more likely they could get caught fibbing.  They can easily be banned from entering the United States for years if that happens.   I know lots of talents who take the chance because they just want to make the dates and the take the opportunities, but they can easily get burnt just as hard.

Why haven't you called out AEW for not delivering Sasha Banks?

When did they advertise her?  It's not like they advertised her for a PPV and then during the RING INTRODUCTIONS, announced she wouldn't be appearing, like WWE did at Summerslam two years ago.    If you believed that they hinted at her and didn't deliver, that's on you for falling for what's called a "red herring" in the entertainment industry, trying to make the audience think one way before you deliver something else.  In AEW's case, they literally announced Toni Storm was the partner, well in advance.  I can't knock AEW because some were hoping for Sasha Banks to show up.  

What's the wrestling/acting crossover you keep waiting for that's never happened?

CM Punk starring as Ash in Evil Dead the Musical.
