If AJ Styles is facing Cena at the Rumble, and Cena is penciled in to face Taker at Wrestlemania, when do you think we will get the dream match of AJ vs Undertaker?  Would you book that match at one of the minor PPV's right after Wrestlemania, or do you hold it off until Summerslam, hoping that Taker does not choose to retire before then?

I honestly can’t say.  It depends on a lot of variables, such as the WWE Title.  There is no way I would do that match on a brand only PPV though.  If they want to go there, it has a SummerSlam or Mania feel to me.  Also, if AJ is the champ, I would have to have him win.  He is the full time guy.  And a win over Taker would be huge for him.

A few days before Survivor Series, the Undertaker announced that he's "back".  It's now been over a month and he's not been seen, heard from and barely mentioned since. I'm sure it's safe to say he'll have a match at WrestleMania but are there plans for Taker to appear/wrestle again any time soon?

That whole scene was so bizarre.  He announces he is back and then disappears.  And if he is back, wouldn’t Smackdown want him on the team, over Shane McMahon?  I sure would.  Anyway, yeah it was really weird to bring him back and then forget about him.  He is definitely scheduled for John Cena at WrestleMania so he will be back for Mania season.

Is it just me or does Nia Jax just scream out looking for a matchup with the only other female wrestler that could match up to her, Awesome Kong (Karma)? What is Karma doing right now and is she available? Has the WWE even reached out to her?  I just think this would be a Wrestlemania match made in heaven. What are your thoughts?

Kong is still taking bookings and WWE obviously knows her.  He run there didn’t go overly well so I am not sure how things were left though.  Me?  I would love to see that match.  It would be quite interesting.

Does Shane McMahon have any backstage power within Smackdown?

Last I heard, he is still being paid as a talent.  But obviously being a McMahon he has power, for sure.

What do you think of Paul Heyman managing Braun Strowman?

As long as Heyman has Brock Lesnar, I think he needs to stay exclusive with him.  They are a great act together.  If Brock were to move on from WWE though, I could see him taking on Strowman.  Braun has improved a lot since his call up.  His match with Sami Zayn on Raw was great.  I think he would be a good choice for Heyman if Brock were out of the picture.
