What do you think are the chances that the WM39 Main Event gets changed to a triple threat match between Roman, Sami and Cody. I get the feeling that after Elimination Chamber when most likely Roman Reigns will retain the title (maybe in some sort of Montreal Screwjob Style...) that fans are going to reject Roman Reigns vs. Cody Rhodes as the main event and try to hijack the shows to get Sami Zayn in the main event like what they did with Daniel Bryan in 2014. 

I have no idea if things will change, and I love it.  With that said, there is clearly a Sami issue to be dealt with and if we see it, HHH does too.  There are a lot of ways to do it.  I don’t think a screw job works because that will make the fans want to see Sami get a rematch even more.  One thing that they can do, and it would make perfect sense, is due to Sami what they did to KO after the Rumble match.  Just destroy Sami.  Maybe KO and/or Jey try to make the save and get laid out.  Finally, Cody comes out and makes the save.  They could say Sami broke a bone or something so that gets him out of the WrestleMania picture but he says that won’t keep him off the show.  Cody had my back, I will have his.  That’s just one way that they could go, but I think they know that the fans will keep chanting for Sami so they will address it.

Supposedly The Rock had a power play behind Black Adam and the DC Universe, curious if there’s any truth to that and your thoughts if it tarnished his image as an individual with tons of humility?

That has been reported.  I don't know any more than what the reports say.  But as for his requests, he's a top star.  Top stars get to make demands.  It doesn't tarnish his image at all to me.  Business is business.  I root for the individual over big money every time.

On the January 30 RAW, cowardly heel Bayley did something a bit heroic for her lackey Dakota Kai when Becky threatened to Pillman Kai with the chair. This has made some people scratch their heads since Kai and SKY said during an October segment they'd do anything for Bayley implying self-sacrifice so she can be a coward. Is having a cowardly heel show compassion a hint that Triple H intends to give some heels grey area? 

For sure it is and THANK GOD it's being done.  I hate cartoon heels.  They aren't real and they are impossible to invest in.  I like that Bayley showed the same loyalty to Kai that Kai has shown to her.  

Why don't they number WrestleMania anymore?

I don't remember them every saying but I have always got the vibe that they want to embrace the locations more than the numeral.

My brother and I were talking about the Royal Rumble and agreed that the whole Bloodline story, especially the stuff with Sami Zayn, has been not just the best thing in pro-wrestling but amongst the best things on TV in general. Sami's acting after the main event, was the sort of performance that wins mainstream actors awards and he did it in front of 50,000 people in one take. Do you see WWE ever submitting anything they do for award consideration?

I agree with you, it’s some of the best wrestling ever, not just now.  The whole story has been deep and nuanced.  Nothing is totally obvious.  I love it.  I am sure WWE would love to submit it and get recognition but I doubt the Emmys would give them any love.  Now if NBCU buys WWE, that could change.  They have a ton of clout.
