Since TNA and WWE have a relationship, there is any chance to see Robert Roode or AJ Styles being inducted into the TNA Hall of Fame this year? 

It wouldn't surprise me since the sides have worked together and seem to get along well.  I can't say it will happen but it won't shock me if it does.

In your experience, do most wrestling fans follow multiple promotions, or are they loyal to one in particular? Take me, for example. I'm solely WWE. Didn't pay much attention to WCW during the Monday Night Wars, or TNA after it, and I don't follow AEW now.

I think that the business indicators give us a pretty clear message.  The majority of fans are like you, they like WWE and that’s it.  There are definitely fans that only like AEW and not WWE, but they are a much smaller group.  And then there are fans that like everything.  That’s the breakdown that I have seen over the years.

I believe in giving credit where it's due, so I need to tip my hat to Tony Khan for the main event finish last night.  He went with, what I feel, was the right thing and had Swerve go over & retain.  Ospreay now has an obstacle to climb if Tony chooses to book it that way.  He can take some time to move him away from Don Callis, and if challengers go to "the back of the line", then he now has to find a way to get back into title contention. I'm hoping this will be followed up with some decent booking for Will. Thoughts?

I think it was the right call as well, for a few reasons.  One, I didn’t want to see Ospreay come in and immediately win the belt.  Like you said, he hasn’t been through any struggles.  More than that, I think there is a good chance that we get a rematch at Wembley and if AEW is going to put the belt on Will, that seems like the place to do it.

Has AEW ever thought of putting their live PPV’s on MAX?

I can’t answer that since only Tony Khan would know what he has thought about but since they aren’t on MAX, it’s logical to assume that WBD hasn’t offered compensation that would make AEW do it.  And we don’t know if they have even had discussions about it.

Would Survivor series 2024 be too early to blow off the inevitable New Bloodline (Solo, Tama, Tonga, Jacob) vs the Original Bloodline (Roman, Jey, Jimmy, Sammy Zayn) in a War Games for instance, or would WM 2025 or even Survivor series 2025 (given the long game it's always played with Roman and co.) be the more plausible choice for a final showdown? 

I think “blow off” is the wrong term to use.  The story has been going on for years now, with no signs of slowing down.  I think War Games will, and should, be a pivotal chapter in the story, for sure.  That match is tailor made for the biggest feuds and I expect to see a battle of The Bloodline there.  But, I also expect it to be another step in one of the all time great storylines.
