I was surprised to learn that WWE has a home and an away creative team. More specifically, that that home team stays at headquarters to work on longer term storylines. How can they do that when at a moment’s notice Vince McMahon can tear up the plans for Raw/SmackDown and change everything that had been scheduled for that night, the next week, the next month etc? 

It ain’t easy.  The writing team does what they can and then just has to deal with all of Vince’s last minute changes.  There isn’t enough money in the world to get me to take that job.  I wouldn’t last a month there.

Just read the news on the site that AEW got a great TV deal with TNT. For those of us who haven't been able to see any AEW shows what should we expect once AEW is on TV? Please tell me it won't be PG. 

To be fair, no one has seen an AEW show, they haven’t had one yet!  With that said, they are going to market a more sports-like product that will cater to a more adult crowd.  Thank God.

If the powers that be behind Dark Side Of The Ring came to you and asked for ideas for future episodes, what would you come up with?

I am not the one to ask.  I am not a huge fan of going into the wayback machine to talk about bad things that have happened in the business.  It seems a bit macabre to me.  Something like the death of Nancy Argentina and Jimmy Snuka’s involvement seems like something they would be interested in.

Do you think VKM would ever allow himself to be inducted into the WWE HOF?? And along those lines, if Vince wouldn’t go in, what about MR. MCMAHON?? If he were in full fledged heel mode, his acceptance speech could be funny as hell. 

He has made it clear he does not want to be inducted so I expect it will not happen until after his death.

What the hell does Vince McMahon have against continuity, logic, and character development? Is it just me, or does it seem like he hates those things? His taste in movies and shows must be terrible.

It’s not you, I have noticed the same thing.  It’s funny too because they do things like hire consultants and continuity editors but in the end, Vince always does what he wants.  I have no idea why telling cohesive stories is so taboo but all you have to do is watch the shows to see the many plot holes.  It can be maddening as a fan.
