I saw a video on YouTube where someone confronts Konnan and slaps him.  I don’t speak Spanish and the man who slapped Konnan had his face obscured.  Any idea what happened here? Was this a work?  Should Konnan press charges?

The incident, we are told, was not a work.  Based on what I was told by several friends who watched the video and speak Spanish, Konnan was confronted by the second Psicosis, who took over that persona when the original left for America and slapped him based on things Konnan allegedly said online about him.  I was told Konnan was denying he said anything. Either way, it’s a sad situation that it happened. No one deserves to be treated like that and to have it put out there for the masses to see. Whatever happened, it should have been dealt with privately.  Konnan absolutely could press charges.

Did you see Shaun Simpson was just announced for the Gathering convention in Charlotte?  What are the odds?

I know.  That was weird timing.  The folks who run the Gathering do a tremendous job.

Who do you think will win the Royal Rumble?

If it was me, I would go with Drew McIntyre.  You can see there’s a ton of momentum behind him and he’s been breaking through as a character.  They’ve had him on a treadmill for way too long and I think now is the time to go with him.

Why do they keep coming up with ways to keep Sasha from wrestling on Smackdown?

I haven’t heard of any injuries so my guess is it was all storyline for Lacey to backdoor her way into earning her title shot at Bayley, which happened last night.

Where does WWE keep their archives?  Are they available to the public?

WWE maintains a warehouse in the Stamford, CT area.  It is not open to the general public.
