Do you think Impact Wrestling is hiring Ace Steel to Woo CM Punk?

No, they are doing it to Woo Ric Flair.  I don't believe they are using Ace to get to the heart of CM Punk, as they initially wanted to bring Steel in during the time period he was fired from AEW and Punk was still contracted to AEW.  I think it was wanting to bring in a producer who was good at his job, nothing more.

Any chance of Brock Lesnar vs. John Cena at Crown Jewel?

In asking around, we are told that is not the creative direction.

Whatever happened to Ivan and Scott Putski?

Both are living in Texas.

You made reference to Cactus Jack being 'lost in Cleveland' recently but it was over my head.  What's Cleveland?

In 1993, WCW ran an angle where Cactus Jack was injured after being powerbombed on the floor by Vader. He disappeared from TV and over the course of "updates" filed by a female reporter who was never seen before or since, we learned that Cactus had been sent to a mental institution, had escaped, made his way to Cleveland, was living among the homeless including a friend named Swampy, and believed he was a sea captain. I'm not making any of this up. It was truly awful stuff.  Then, all of this was ignored and forgotten and he returned to attack Vader. The end.  WCW!

Does WOW tour?

Not currently.  They tape in Los Angeles in big blocks of episodes at the Belasco Theater.
