NIA JAX, FULL GEAR, CAN YOU CONSIDER NXT A BRAND AT THE LEVEL OF RAW & SMACKDOWN WHEN THEY RUN FULL SAIL AND MORE

By Mike Johnson on 2019-11-09 10:00:00

How can WWE ask us to consider NXT as a viable third brand when they run a tiny venue?

They can because of the quality of the talents and the wrestling.  There is no rule that says NXT will only emanate from Full Sail University forever.  Plus, if you see the reaction the NXT talents have gotten on Raw and Smackdown the last few weeks, it's obvious there's a huge contingent of fans who are already seeing them as viable.

One of the things I loved about AEW Double or Nothing was the unique staging with the giant casino chips.  Any chance we have a cool, unique stage for Full Gear?

I am told the PPV will have a different staging design, so we will see what it is.

How long until Nia Jax returns?

We haven't heard a definitive date, but ACL tears are usually 6-9 months and she had surgery in April, so she should be back by the time WWE begins the Wrestlemania build, if not sooner.  For dramatic purposes, I would suggest the Royal Rumble.

CM Punk's movie has gotten some really good reviews.  Do you think there's a chance WWE would sign him to return, but as an actor for their movies?

Anything is possible, but I don't see WWE signing Punk for anything but returning to the ring.

I know this is a weird question, so I apologize.  Back in the day when there was midget wrestling, did they have their own locker room or did they dress with everyone else?

To be the best of my knowledge, they were not sequestered in their own locker room...and yes, this was a weird question!
