I noticed you didn’t mention Cody or Jon Moxley when you talked about your three favorite things in AEW.  Why?  Don’t you like them?

No, just the opposite, I like both of them a lot.  I think they are great wrestlers.  In Cody’s case, I love most of the stories he has told, but I don’t like the way he has physically abused himself so he didn’t make my top three since I am from the “you should work not shoot” school.  The same is true for Mox.  He has done some brawling stuff that I don’t think he needs to do, though I know he loves doing it.  In the end, I would enjoy those two more if they "worked” and protected their bodies more.  I totally understand that they, and others, love the hardcore stuff they do.

Also, do you sing along with Chris Jericho’s song when he comes out?

No, I don’t because I don’t know the words. But I think it’s cool that the fans do. It’s really cool. Jericho is really over with that crowd.

If you were ROH what would you do about Jeff Cobb going to AEW?

I would have to know what his long term plans are.  If he wants to keep wrestling for everyone, that would limit how, if I were Marty Scurll, I could book him.  I wouldn’t be able to push him in a top program if I wasn’t sure he was committed to me.  So in the end, I would sit down with him and see what it would take to get him to sign exclusively with my company.  If he wouldn’t do that, that would tell me all I need to know.

What are your thoughts on the picture-in-picture used on AEW Dynamite?  Do you think it would be a viable option for WWE to adopt and use when the situation calls for commercial breaks during matches?

I think it’s a great idea as it keeps at least some viewers from fast forwarding through commercials, which is what TNT wants them to do.  I know USA has does it at times as well.  It’s a smart idea.

EC3 literally has not been seen on television for months. I don’t even know if he’s been on the house shows. Why not just transfer him to NXT where he would be appreciated? Don’t know why you would want to pay somebody to have them not work. I’m sure this could be said about several superstars, but his case seems the most blatant.

Yeah, at this point do something with him.  Send him to NXT, release him or push him.  The way they do nothing with him is totally mystifying to me.
