How many talents have portrayed Jushin Liger?

One.

I just re-watched the WCW/New Japan Supershow from 1991 where the main event was Ric Flair vs Tatsumi Fujinami. I was very confused by the finish and the aftermath of that match. Was it a dusty finish that took place because of WCW not wanting Fujinami to hold the belt for very long?

They wanted to do a controversy that would be settled at the next PPV.  It was weak.  In Japan, it was portrayed as Fujinami won the NWA title, but not the WCW title and Flair had stolen the belt.  In WCW, it was portrayed that Flair had retained via a screwy finish where he was DQ'd even though Fujinami pinned him.  They had a good rematch at Superbrawl '91 but it wasn't the prime creative story.

Do you think AEW should be signing short wrestlers like Marko Stunt?  It screams small time to me.

Sure, they should sign anyone they believe they can place in a role and make them money.  To me, if you have a cast of characters who can play all sorts of different roles, that's a plus.  You don't want it to look like WWE developmental a decade ago where everyone looked the same.  Stunt could play a hell of a kid's character if they wanted to go that way.  You can't say it's small time until you actually see what they do with the guy!

Who do you think attacked Roman Reigns on Smackdown?

He's listed as wrestling Daniel Bryan after Summerslam, so that's my guess.

Why didn't WWE let Ric Flair cut a promo at Raw Reunion?

I've never heard a definitive reason beyond that wanted it to be Hulk Hogan and Steve Austin speaking at the end of the show.
