Does WWE have same contract as other shows on fox? Can they be cancelled or not brought back due to low ratings or are they guaranteed 5 yrs on fox regardless of ratings?

Their deal is like when sports leagues sign with networks, in that they sell rights fees.  They are not like entertainment programs.  

You know, the whole "short jokes" schtick with Chad Gable was grating and lazy on its own, but now he's actually being called "Shorty Gable"? Can we stop with this reductive garbage? Gable's not even that short, to be perfectly honest.

Well, to be fair it’s a heel calling him that, and the heel is much taller.  I didn’t like it at first but I kind of did on Smackdown this week as Gable was embracing it.  As weird as it sounds, it may be the kind of thing that gets some momentum behind him.

Is there any word on if AEW will be available on Hulu in the near future?

Not that I have heard at this time.  Turner Media has been embracing the replays so it probably won’t happen soon, if it all.

I would like to know what are your thoughts about the 6 seconds match between Lesnar and Kofi... personally I thought is was awful and disrespectful.  I would like to know who decided this, is it WWE or did Brock ask for a very short match....It’s sad for hard working wrestlers like Kofi, Ali or... Buddy Murphy ? Where is he after two great matches ?  all Brock has to do is show up at MITB and grab the briefcase with no effort, and the same thing last Friday..... and how did WWE broke the news to Kofi « hey man Brock will take your title in 6 seconds »..... Anyway let’s give AEW a chance....

Vince makes the booking calls.  It all stops and starts with him.  But I agree, it was really bad booking of Kofi.  They sacrificed him for the Brock-Cain angle.  

Is it me or does this whole Cain vs Brock makes Rey look bad? Here’s a guy that fought The Big Show, Batista, The Great Khali, etc. And can’t stand up to Brock???

Well, they at least protected him by putting his arm in a sling.  You can’t take on Brock with only one arm.  And as bad as Rey could have looked, Kofi looked way worse.  One move took his title.
