There's been a lot of talk online that ticket sales for Stomping Ground have been poor.  What happens if WWE gets this weekend and half the building is empty?

They will either lower the lights so you can't tell or make sure somehow that building is filled in all the important camera angles.

Why do you think so many people, like Jim Ross and Chris Jericho, have been disloyal to WWE by joining AEW?

No one has been disloyal.  They are independent contractors who have chosen to go make a lot of guaranteed money for their families.  You go where you can make the most money and be the most fulfilled.  Loyalty has nothing to do with it.  WWE releases wrestlers all the time - are they being disloyal to those talents?  They don't use talents to the best of their abilities at time - are they being disloyal?  No, it's just business.  Same principle here.

If there was one cartoon character you'd like to see come to live in pro wrestling the way Tiger Mask and Jushin Liger have, who would it be?

Speed Racer.  You could have a cool entrance and some cool vignettes.

With the demise of WPLJ, you wrote about charity events the station did with WWE but didn't say what charity benefited from the events?  Was it Headlock on Hunger?

In both years that the events happened, 1992 and 1993, they were raising money for the local Salvation Army, including a home for veterans in Queens, NY.  Freddie Blassie was extremely involved in the charity, which is how it all came together.  Headlock on Hunger was a different initiative.

I have been fascinated with finding a vinyl copy of the Abdullah the Butch record since hearing the discussion about if with the creators of Dark Side of the Ring.  Any suggestions?

I would put a search for it on Ebay.  There may be stores in Japan that carry it, but I have no idea where to begin looking down that avenue
