What you make of Dax Harwood ending his podcast due to extreme negative reaction he has received stemming from certain other wrestling journalists (who he named in his final podcast episode) taking his comments and twisting them to create their own false narratives?

As I said yesterday in the Q and A, I think it's a damn shame and should have never happened.  We are supposed to report the news, not make it.

I know his wrestling career was extremely short and the character (not Marc Copani) was controversial, but do see Muhammad Hassan ever being inducted to the WWE Hall of Fame. The guy, together with Davari, was a heat magnet and though his WWE lasted about 6 months, he shared the ring with just about everybody. I read over his career and the list of people he shared the ring with is outstanding, Foley, Lawler, Jericho, Slaughter, Hogan, Michaels, Austin, Cena, Batista and Undertaker. That's not too shabby.

I watched it happen in real time.  If I were voting I wouldn't say it was a Hall Of Fame career.  To me, it didn’t hit the heights I see as being among the greatest of all time.

What were your thoughts on his "terrorist angle" with the Undertaker?

I didn't like it at all.  It was just cheap heat to me.  I have never liked cheap heat.

If the angle had been edited off or more importantly the London attacks never happened, where would you see his career heading?

I can't say to be honest.

In today's world, do you think Hassan type characters would be booked on TV? I know we've the evil foreigner type character, but not to the extreme of Hassan. 

In my opinion there is a line that shouldn’t be crossed.  I don’t want to see a character representing something where real people have been hurt and killed.  I think there are better, more decent ways to get heat.
