Could you ask HHH how is the UK Brexit affecting NXT UK? 

Sure, I will try and remember to do it on the next conference call.  My hunch is he would say that they will wait and see how it affects the UK and take it from there.  It's kind of up in the air right now.

If it happens will it set back WWE in anyway? 

See the above.  It's pretty much impossible to say right now.  We will have to see how it affects the British economy.  Even if things go crazy there with the new USA deal WWE still will have an outlet for the great UK talent that they have.

What are wrestlers’ opinions? 

I haven't talked to anyone that really has one at this time.

Now that NXT is moving to USA do you think WWE should refer to the NXT Title as the NXT World Title? WWE has had 3 world champs before & since NXT is now airing on a major network, that makes it equal to Raw & Smackdown & having a world champ would help make it such.

I like that idea.  Then you could have the NXT World Title as the main Championship, meaning NXT UK talents could get shots at it, as well as the North American and NXT UK Titles. 

Much has been said about the $50 price tag for AEW's big events.  With the impending Wednesday night war (if we're calling it that) do you think there's anyway they can continue with that price point?  I'm very interested in AEW, but I'll NEVER pay that for a show.  Especially when I can not only watch Takeover events for $9.99, but all WWE PPVs.

Oh sure, they can continue with it because Tony Khan has done it thus far.  I am sure he heard the complaints about the price and decided he was going to charge $50 anyway.  It might not be totally his call but in any event, I am with you, it’s just too much money in 2019 to charge for a show.  The world has changed and a lot of people feel as you do.  I guess as long as they are happy with the buy rates, the price will stay the same.  It will be very interesting to see if they can get people to pay $50 when they will be giving away two hours every Wednesday.
