If Ronda Rousey is in the main event of Wrestlemania 35, who do you think would be her opponent? I would love to see her against Asuka or Shayna Baszler but I could see them going with Charlotte Flair. What direction could you see them going?

I think it would need to be someone really big for that to happen.  At this point?  I can’t say but it would have to be a really, really hot issue to get the main event of the show.

Does Roman Reigns still get paid while he is away? Also is his contract still going or is it frozen until he comes back? Also if Roman decided to retire from wrestling and then decide in a few years he wants to wrestle again would be a free agent or no?

WWE will pay him yes.  It’s their option to put him on the “injured” contract status, where his contract would be frozen for its duration while he got his downside but frankly, that won’t be an issue.  He is dedicated to the company and vice versa.

How much faith do you have in Vince McMahon as a human being that he WOULDN’T incorporate Roman Reign’s current situation into a storyline?? This is assuming he got Roman’s permission.

It has nothing to do with “faith”.  It has to do with the wrestling business and what those involved in the storyline are comfortable with.  I can tell you this: Over the years I have spoken with far more workers that like their real life incorporated into storylines than I have those that don’t.  

As part of Ronda Rousey’s WWE persona, is she (supposedly) unbeatable?? She’s going to have to lose the title someday. Do you think Vince would orchestrate it in such a way that her unbeatable streak remains intact?? Like a triple threat match where she doesn’t have to be pinned??

I don’t think she’s unbeatable, she’s hard to beat.  When it comes time for the belt to be changed it can happen in a number of ways.  I hope that it is not done in the way that they took the Title off of Brock Lesnar.  That doesn’t come across as credible. 

Did I see that Alexa Bliss is going to captain a Survivor Series team, but won’t be wrestling?? Is she still dealing with whatever (concussion??) kept her out of the Evolution match?? 

They want her on the show but they also want her to be cleared to work first.  After her not being able to wrestle at Evolution, it makes sense for them to do it like they did.  Her health is more important than one match and her presence will make the match more interesting.
