Why was the referee blurred out of the Hardys match vs. Super Crazy and Psicosis on Impact?

The referee was under contract to Lucha Underground and TNA did not have permission to air him on their TV so they blurred him out.

I heard your audio this week.  Do you think everyone that was getting on John Cena for winning the WWE Title at The Royal Rumble should do a mea culpa now?

Honestly, yes I do.  Cena won the Title, as we see now, to help give Bray Wyatt credibility.  He lost twice to him last week, cleanly.  I give Cena and WWE a ton of credit for using him to help make Bray.  I also like that Randy Orton did something similar by giving up his Title shot.  Whether it gets Bray over as a top guy or not, I love that WWE tried.

Please tell me Goldberg vs. Brock Lesnar will not be for the Universal Title?

I can’t yet but I am with you, I don’t want to see that either.  I think it’s great that they are having a match, but the Universal Title does not need to be a part of it.  To me, the Title should be defended by a full time wrestler.  I don’t think it’s fair to have Kevin Owens carry the Title all year and then get stiffed at the biggest time of the year.  Hopefully, last Monday on Raw Owens took that first step.

And please tell me that Kevin Owens vs. Chris Jericho will be!

It should be.  If it’s me, I keep Jericho off of TV until Fast Lane and then have him come out and attack Owens, maybe after KO got himself DQ’d against Goldberg. Then we have KO defending against Jericho at Mania in the match that both men deserve.

Finn Balor is appearing on house show in March.  Do you have him appear on TV before WrestleMania?

No, I don’t.  When he got hurt, he was the Universal champion.  When he comes back, he should go for that Title but as mentioned above, that belt will already be in play at Mania.  So to me, Balor should come back on TV after the PPV.  Jericho has Fozzy dates in May and June.  I could see KO destroying him after Mania and Balor stepping in and getting his shot.
