Is it wrong to feel like someone in AEW needs to step in and tell Darby Allin to tone it down before he seriously injured himself. uT seems like every AEW event he does something crazier than the last event. 

I don’t think it’s wrong at all, I think it’s responsible.  The promoter has to be the one to protect the wrestler from him or herself.  The business is supposed to be a work.  When you do some of the things that Allin does, and others as well, there is no way that they can work that kind of stuff. 

I think Bray Wyatt/Fiend character is the hottest thing on WWE right now.  And I know he has a Universal title shot coming up.  My feelings, however, is that his character just does not fit the image of a Universal champion.  I would argue he does not need the title to be popular.  But it just seems odd that such a "scary, evil" character could be pictured as champion.  Your thoughts?

Well, it’s not odd to me, but it is something Vince McMahon doesn’t often do.  I don’t think he needs the Title either, which is probably a good thing since I don’t see him getting it, at least not now.

Considering Edge had to retire because his spinal stenosis was so bad that one more bad bump could leave him paralyzed, how did he get medically cleared to perform a spear on Elias at Summerslam?  Although delivering a spear is not technically a "bump," it does pose some risk of compressing the spine and neck.

As Edge said after the fact, there are physical things he can do.  Remember, the spear hits the stomach, which has some give to it.  Plus, he is the one performing the move and thus is the one in control of it.  

With NXT moving to USA, how will this affect us international viewers who get our weekly NXT fix via the WWE Network?

You will get it on Thursdays on the WWE Network.

Will AEW TV be available in Canada or will it be like MLW and be available on you tube a few days later?

As of this writing, there has been no announcement as to how, or if, people outside of the US and UK will be able to watch their TV show.
