Why were the women covered up so much at the WWE event in Dubai?

Alexa Bliss and Sasha Banks were dressed up more modestly out of respect for local laws and regulations in the country.

Why haven't we seen Darren Young since his WWE release?

I know Young has been asking for, what I believe, to be a pretty hefty appearance fee for someone who wasn't a top name in WWE.  I've had a few promoters tell me that Young's reps have sent word he wasn't going to do jobs on the independents either, which isn't a reasonable request either.  My guess is that sooner or later, we'll see him pop up wrestling again.

Is House of Hardcore supposed to be a nostalgia promotion?  I feel like I am watching a throwback to Nitro and ECW when I watch it.

I don't think that's been the plan, but when you use talents from a certain era and book them in that fashion, one can certainly make the same connection you have.  I'd like to see Tommy Dreamer find a core group of young talents and build them but thus far, that hasn't happened.

Terry Funk has been pulling off events - is everything OK?

We are told there is a health issue with a family member.  We send Terry and his family the best. 

Why is a random episode of NXT on the USA Network next week?

It's programming for WWE Week on the Network, nothing more, but if it does a great number, the door opens for USA to be more interested in the brand obviously...
