There's been a lot of talk about the WWE culture in the wake of the Vince McMahon-Janel Grant lawsuit.  You wrote that you felt Ari Emanuel would get rid of anyone who might be involved.  Why would you assume how Emanuel would act?

His daughter works for WWE behind the scenes and has since well before Endeavor bought the company.  I don't think for a second the man is going to allow anything that potentially disgusting to remain unchecked in a company he owns, especially since his daughter is working there.  I just don't imagine he's going to allow it.  My opinion.

Who would be head of Talent Relations for TNA?

I don't know if she has ever been given the official title publicly, but pretty much everyone I've asked concurred it's Gail Kim.

Is there any truth to the old story that Bruno Sammartino got into a backstage skirmish with NFL players at Wrestlemania 2?

No, because if he had, they wouldn't have been alive to tell the tale.

Was New Jack named after New Jack City?

I think it's pretty easy to draw the correlation between the two names.  The film came out several years before New Jack entered the pro wrestling world.

What do you think of Vince McMahon hiring the law firm that MLW used to get a settlement out of WWE?

I don't have any insight but it's quite an ironic move.

Whenever WWE or whoever breaks out the cages, cells, Wargames, Elimination Chambers, etc. the commentators make a big deal about the structures being career ending but I cannot recall anyone having their career ended after a match of that type. Has this ever happened?

No, it's all done to promote and hype the danger and drama of the match.
