WHY ROH IS RETURNING TO TERMINAL 5, DAVEY BOY SMITH JR. IN ALL JAPAN, THE NIGHTMARE COLLECTIVE KAPUT & MORE

By Mike Johnson on 2020-02-14 10:00:00

Harry Smith popped on WWE's streaming show the Bump and is announced as heading to All Japan.  He's signed to MLW, do you think he will get heat for either?

No, I don't.  I don't see MLW being mad he went and sat in on a WWE show that only gives him exposure.  It's not like he was on Raw and was RKO'd in 25 seconds.  As far as All Japan, we reached out to MLW and were told the company is happy to see as many doors opened internationally for talents if it keeps them busy on days MLW isn't running.

Why is Ring of Honor not returning to the Hammerstein Ballroom?

They didn't draw enough fans there to make financially viable, especially when the Hammerstein wants those running the show to pay to use their in-house production.  They can always go back if and when they are back to that position.

Why did AEW drop the Nightmare Collective?

It wasn't working, so it went away.  That's the easiest answer I could give you.

Who would you say are the most important personalities in Memphis history?

Jerry Jarrett, Jerry Lawler, Bill Dundee, Jackie Fargo and Lance Russell are the top five, in no particular order, in my opinion.

Do you ever think we'll see the Midnight Express wrestle again?

You got a chance to Bart Gunn and Bob Holly doing something, but the originals?  No, that time has passed.  I was lucky enough to see them do some matches about 10-15 years ago and that was a lot of fun for me personally but Father Time and health issues have gotten the better of everyone.  I don't ever see it happening.
