Why should I waste my time watch Stomping Ground?  WWE’s creative has stunk all year.  I am sure the wrestling will be good, but the booking stinks.  Why should I watch?

Honestly?  If you feel that way you shouldn’t watch.  If good booking is part of what you enjoy about the wrestling business and WWE isn’t giving it to you, you should skip it.  There is a lot of good stuff out there right now to watch so if WWE isn’t giving you want you want, watch something that will.

I heard you say WWE wastes the opportunity to remind fans about their house shows on Raw and Smackdown.  I was watching NXT and noticed they do run crawls at the bottom of the screen for their upcoming shows.  Since Vince knows house show attendance is an issue, why doesn’t he do what NXT does and promote the house shows on TV?

I’ve got nothing.  I really don’t.  It’s a no brainer for WWE to do it, yet they don’t.  Three hours of Raw and Vince can’t find time to promote the weekend shows?  It makes no sense.

I was surprised to hear Paige mention to Tokyo Show on Smackdown tonight. As match in Tokyo is to set up a future title match ...will the Tokyo show air on the network like the Saudi shows did? Will an edit version air on the network like Starrcade?

I haven’t heard them announce that.  But you know, I am fine with them promoting that a Title shot is in order if Asuka and Kairi Sane win in Japan.  It makes the house shows mean something.

I think we all assume Alexa Bliss is just using Nikki Cross and will turn on her eventually. So how about at the PPV have Nikki help Bayley retain and do a double turn instead of doing the obvious? I think that could freshen things up and we haven’t seen a heel Bayley or a face Alexa. 

It certainly seems like Nikki is being used, no doubt.  With that said, it makes no sense for me to just up and turn Bayley.  She finally got to the top, her way, and suddenly turns why?  

I'm not sure I want to ask, but I have to know....any word on what Vince thinks about the Firefly Fun House? I personally think they're amazing, even though I'm not quite sure how they're going to pay off down the road.

I can’t speak for Vince but from what I have heard the company is happy with the segments.  I am with you, I am not sure how they will pay it off, or if they will keep giving it time, but right now it’s perversely entertaining.
