We hear some people say on the internet that Vince is not at a lot of the tv tapings like he used to do all the time. I know he still goes to Raw and main roster PPV's but I hear that Vince not at the Smackdown tapings that much anymore and he just let Triple H and Road Dogg control the ship. I also know that he never does NXT. Can you clarify what's true and what's not? Is he still at Gorilla Position wearing the headsets every week or did he slow down in recent months?

Vince still is the conduit by which the main roster product flows.  He does miss shows from time to time, for different reasons, but when he does he is not off the grid.  He is still in constant contact controlling the vision of Raw and Smackdown.  As for NXT, that is Triple H’s baby and he largely controls that.  Obviously, if Vince wants something implemented it will be implemented, but he is very hands off with the NXT product.

Nia Jax recently posted something on Instagram stating her and Bray Wyatt are related?  If so,  what is the relation? 

She is The Rock’s cousin.  Bray Wyatt is the son of Mike “IRS” Rotunda and the grandson of Blackjack Mulligan and nephew of Barry and Kendall Windham.  There is no blood relation between Jax and Wyatt that I am aware of.

So could Vince be doing a double turn? He makes it look like he's restarting the XFL to make us think he's going to try to buy the Carolina Panthers. He has Coachman go on Tmz to help sell that concept (Coachman who just left ESPN) Now WWE investors are ok with his stock sale because they think he's investing in an NFL team. But ultimately he really is restarting the XFL (With Coachman as a lead announcer) and the NFL rumor had soften the blow to WWE stock? I know that once the stock market knows for sure its going to be XFL things could go south but what if he uses the time to leak the potential plans (and differences from the old XFL) to calm investors nerves. 

If it turns out that was the case, Coach will lose all credibility.  I really think at this point the stock dropped about 10 percent out of fear and then investors went back to thinking that the new TV deal is coming and that stopped the bleeding.  It has largely stabilized this week and closed at $30.34.

Knowing Vince McMahon and Kevin Dunn, do you think that there's a real good chance of a male Superstar in drag like, say Dolph Ziggler winning the Women's Royal Rumble?

No, I don’t think there is a real chance that will happen.  I don’t think there is an unreal chance either.

Why did Live Audio Wrestling go off the air and what is the future of the program? I've been a loyal listener for 7 years and the way Anthem released Jason, John, and Mouth was disgraceful and low-class, to say the least. What do you think?

It went off the air because Anthem decided to take them off the air.  It was probably inevitable, since Pollock and company tell things like they are and they were working under the umbrella of a company that owns a wrestling company that made more than its fair share of mistakes in 2017.  That group was reputable so they told the truth.  My take is that Anthem didn’t like the truth being told about the blunders that they made with Impact on an outlet that they owned.  But, Pollock has landed on his feet and gone out on his own, which I applaud him for having been in a similar situation myself many moons ago.  I respect anyone when they bet on themselves.  You can get more information what he is doing now by watching the video below.
