Any word on how Dream is doing? Was he injured? Suspended?

He has been out of action with a back issue.  He was slated to be at the Royal Rumble over the weekend, but we were unable to confirm 100% that he was there.  He's been at the WWE Performance Center and NXT TV regularly while he's been off TV.  He was not suspended.

Is Robert Stone designed to be a Tony Khan parody?

No.  I get this question a lot, specifically whether WWE costumed Stone to look like Khan.  That isn't the case.  Stone has been dressed in that fashion on the independents and for House of Hardcore for several years, long before Tony Khan was involved in professional wrestling.  I don't think the idea is to parody Khan.

You reported Kane was going to be in the Rumble but he wasn't. 

I never reported Kane was going to be in the Royal Rumble match.  I reported he would be there.  He was in Houston all weekend for WWE, but wasn't utilized on camera.

You reported Ruby Riott was in Houston,  Is she close to being cleared?

I haven't heard anything definitive on her return to the ring.  She was at the WWE Performance Center a few weeks back.  She was in Houston over the weekend and did not have her arm in a sling, which would seem to be a step in the right direction, obviously.

Where is the PWInsider.com office?

Wherever we open our laptops.  I live in NYC.  Dave lives in Vegas or Jersey depending on the time period.  There's no central office.   I work wherever I need to as there's a laptop with me no matter where I go.
