Does Kofi Kingston's WWE Title victory at WrestleMania further solidify him as a future WWE Hall of Famer?

It depends on what you think of the Hall Of Fame.  If you look at accomplishments and forget the fact that it’s a worked business, sure you can make the case.  If you look at it for what it is, then I think he will definitely get in some day.  He held the Title and New Day has been an important act.  I think he will get in one day.

Why was the term "WWE Diva" hated by several wrestlers as well as the fans?

Because the word implies that instead of being athletes they are high maintenance people.  That is why I always hated it.  They aren’t wrestlers, not people worried about breaking a fingernail.  They are top athletes and deserve respect. Diva was always insulting to me.

Was Cain vs Lesnar at Crown Jewel a mistake? Not because of the outcome but because of the crowd reaction. It seems like the Saudi fans care more about nostalgia or whatever they are familiar with vs current storyline. Fans were cheering Brock and booing Cain. 

They cheered Randy Orton too.  That crowd likes the older stars that they know.  Brock would have gotten cheered no matter what.

Several objects were thrown at Natalya and Lacey Evans as they made their way down the ramp for their match at Crown Jewel.  What do you make of this?  Is it a sign that not everyone who lives there is as progressive-thinking as WWE would like us to believe?

I didn’t see that at all.  I can’t comment on what I didn’t see.  But me personally?  I am a long way from seeing the Saudis as a progressive society.  A long way.

At Wrestlemania 33, was the plan that it was The Undertaker’s last match? The scene at the end of him putting his attire back on, removing it. Emotionally looking at the crowd coupled with JR’s return for that match points that it was?

The best explanation I got was that it was very possible that it would be his last match and if so, they were going to let it stand as such, the way that they did.  Obviously, Taker decided after that he still had more left to give the business.
