Why does the WWE treat the Four Horsewomen (Becky Lynch, Sasha Banks, Bayley and Charlotte Flair) on the same level as the likes of Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins instead of just supporting characters much like the Divas Era?

Because the women and men are seen as equals now, as they should be.

Recently WWE has filed trade marks on Brock Lesnar, Trish Stratus, Paul Heyman, Bobby Lashley. How can WWE trademark peoples real names?! And does that mean, if they were to go to another company, they couldn't use their real name?! 

WWE needs to trademark the names to legally use them on their content.  A person could take their real name and use it in another company, provided the period of copyright with WWE has run out. 

I have somewhat of a follow up question to my recent question regarding the Canadian Destroyer.  I love high impact action with stiff looking moves in a match, but in a lot of cases we see moves/strikes early in matches (especially in NXT, AEW, NJPW, and many Indies) that look far more devastating than some performers finisher.  For example Rhea Ripley as we know can have one hell of a match and look dominant, but her finisher is basically a weak looking pump handle slam variation.  Have wrestlers blurred the line a little (maybe a lot) too much with high impact stuff early in matches that should be finishers only?  Would you say it's difficult to come up with great finishers that are safe?

I don’t think it is.  Look at the Imperium vs. UE match from Saturday.  WALTER pinned Bobby Fish with a stuff powerbomb.  Why did it work?  Well WALTER is a beast but Bobby was also beaten down a bit so it didn’t take such an extreme move to beat him.  With that said, I would love to see more impactful things happen later in matches and they shouldn’t be used as transition spots early.

What’s happened to Jason Jordan? Will he ever wrestle again?

That is a good question. Since suffering his neck injury in 2018, he hasn’t come back to work in the ring.  It doesn’t appear he will any time soon.  I hope that, like Edge, he can find a way to return because he is really talented.

I am already sick of people pointing to the WrestleMania sign.  Do you hate it as much as I do?

It doesn’t bother me at all.  It’s all about marketing the company’s biggest show of the year so I am fine with it.  It always surprises me how much people hate it.
