So With King of The Ring wrapping up next Monday. I'd like to get your thoughts on Corbin. I think it’s about time WWE rewarded him for being a good worker. I personally think he's an underrated talent and plays the heal very well, he also seems to enjoy it. Would you agree with me that its about time WWE threw him a bone, or is he just another Mid Card talent that they are going to keep where he's at? My personal feeling is that he's going to win given his opponent Chad Gable. But I'd like to think its because they want to reward Corbin. Your Thoughts?

I think Corbin is in a good place in the company, so he doesn’t really need to win the tournament.  They like him, as is obvious by his push.  I could see either guy winning but I don’t think it hurts Corbin if he loses.  I think it could help Gable.  I say have him win it.

I have always disliked Seth Rollins' entrance music, which is as generic as entrance music gets, and thought the perfect time to give him a new theme was after he beat Brock for the title at Wrestlemania.  Do you think Seth needs new music or are you fine with what he has now, and who are some other wrestlers who you think would benefit greatly from a change in theme music?

I am fine with his music.  It’s over with the fans so I don’t see any need to change it.  As for other wrestlers, music doesn’t mean all that much to me.  I care more about the talent being over than the actual music.  If a person is over, when their music plays they get a pop.  That is what is important to me.

We know Jazzy Gabert is signed to NXT UK, but we have not seen her on TV almost at all since her signing.  She was arguably the most over talent coming out of the first Mae Young Classic, and if she has overcome her injuries she had coming out of that tournament she could make an immediate impact on either NXT brand.  Why have we not seen more of her on TV?

They had Takeover UK to build to and she wasn’t on that.  She was over for sure, and will be a again.  It’s just a matter of time before she gets her push.  They have a lot going on right now.  I love how NXT hasn’t rushed things.

How does the model of NXT now change with live 2 hour weekly episodes? I ask this as on the model now, the 1 hour weekly shows we sometimes don’t see Adam Cole, Velveteen Dream, Gargano – basically the top stars for 1 or 2 weeks at a time. Does this have to now change going forward?

We will see more content obviously, but with commercials it will only be an extra half hour a week of actual content.  I think, at least at first, we will get the NXT that we love now.  If AEW doesn’t decimate it in the ratings I think it will stay the NXT we love.

What's the mood backstage amongst wrestlers at Impact after the AXS TV deal? Is this seen as the light at the end of the tunnel?  Do you guys see anything change with their product? 

Everyone I have talked to in the company is happy about it.  They should be, it’s good for Impact.
