Do you know how the announce tables are constructed or held together?  I find it interesting that the tables are sturdy enough to hold the weight of a man, yet break apart cleanly when a second person jumps from the ring and onto their prone opponent.  And ditto for power bombs through a table; it always breaks apart cleanly.  And are the monitors on the tables real?  It seems that a monitor would stop working after being tossed to the side, bounced off the floor, etc.

They are standard tables that can take a normal amount of weight, but when you add a large man crashing on top of another, or coming solo from a distance, they break.  Often, they don’t have a middle support.  Yes, the monitors are real.  The announcers call the show off of them because WWE wants the announcers to call what the fans at home see on their TV.

So what’s next for Brock Lesnar? I know his contract was due to be up, does he just relinquish the title and leave, since he’s pretty much beaten everybody credible. Where does WWE go with him now?

The rumor is that he will take on Roman Reigns at WrestleMania.  He will be nearing 41 years old when Mania comes.  That isn’t the best age to go full time in MMA.  I think he is very smart in using his leverage and in the end he will see that if he wants to keep making money, WWE is the best option for that.  If he decides to go live on his farm, well that would change everything.

Is Brock just being lazy with his moveset like Ambrose said or he’s just completely following Vince’s orders?

It’s a mix of both.  WWE management makes it clear what they want and expect of Brock and he does it.  As we saw with AJ Styles, and to a degree Braun Strowman, Brock can and will do more, but the other side of the coin is that WWE wants to keep him strong so that when he is finally beaten, cough Roman Reigns cough, it will mean more.  With that said, if they make his day at the office an easy one, he will do that too.  I can’t really blame him.

I used to read a lot of wrestling magazines in the 90s, like Pro Wrestling Illustrated and WWE magazine. They would always have kayfabe interviews in them with current talent. I'm curious, how exactly were these interviews done? Would the interviewer call the wrestler and they would be in character the whole time, or would they ask a question and the wrestler would be like " I think my character would say this", or would the interviewer completely make up all the answers themselves and put in what they thought the wrestler would say with no actual contact with them?

Generally, the worked mags would make up interviews that played into storylines and run them.  There was no real reason to do the actual interview.  Now, when WOW came along, that changed.  I worked for the magazine and we did actual interviews during my time there.

I have noticed that other sites literally post “news” seconds after you guys do on the site.  Are they really hanging on your every word that much?  Do they refresh your page every five seconds?

Many of them definitely hit our page a lot.  The funny thing is, I will see things that we post that are easily available to find then go up on their sites within minutes.  It’s one thing to copy news you can’t get on your own but when someone is too lazy to even check Twitter feeds while they claim to be “reporters”, that is just lazy and weak.
