In an interview on Quebec French television, George St-Pierre said that WWE approached him for a contract. He said he was not looking for something long term but was open to participate in a special event. If that happens, do you think it would be better to use him at Summerslam in Toronto, Canada, or keep him for the next WrestleMania?

That's a good question. I think to people like me, who don't follow UFC, he wouldn't mean all that much (and yes, I know to UFC fans he would) so I like the idea of using him in his home area.

Is Bret Hart signed to any sort of WWE/legends deal? If so, how can he appear at such an event?

I don't know the details of his deal but since he appeared for AEW, I think it's a really good sign that he was able to do so without conflict just by him appearing.  I do have to say I found it surprising that one month after a Hall Of Fame induction, there he was appearing for the first real competion WWE has had in almost 20 years.  I wonder how Vince McMahon felt about that.

Bret looked injured, he walked slowly and winced getting out of the ring – are these injuries due to the Hall of fame attack?

I don't believe so. He has been through a lot with his stroke. And, he's almost 62 years old. Father Time catches up with all of us.

Why did WWE sign EC3 if they are not going to use him?

Because at the time he signed, he had no idea that they weren't going to use him. He thought that they would see what he could do and maximize that. It didn't end up happening, unfortunately.  They have totally wasted a really talented guy.  It's sad.  If I were him, the second my deal was up I would be on the phone with AEW.  

Do you think Starrcast suffered at all by the fact that Ric Flair, who was the featured attraction for several of its headline events, was not able to make it?

It would have had to. You don't ever lose your main event and not feel the pain of it. I felt bad for Conrad. That was a tough last minute blow.
