DOES WWE FINALLY CALL PUNK TO RETURN?, DANA WARRIOR, MSG AND MORE

With WWE running out of legends to roll out, when does CM Punk finally return?

I haven't heard ANYTHING about those two sides having any sort of communication, so we may be waiting awhile.

Earlier this week I found myself watching a lot of old wrestling on You Tube.  Man how I miss the days of old WCW (late 80’s) World Class, and Memphis wrestling territories. Talk about great stories.  Anyway, I ran across a video interview with Warrior (I guess that is what his name was then).  Where he pretty much buried WCW and his WCW run.   Is this you doing the interview?  It sure does sound like you.  When is this from? 

It was indeed me.  The interview took place in October 2004.  RIngside Collectibles hired me to interview Warrior and the content is theirs.  It was an interesting night, to say the least and I think about it every time I am in Times Square and walk past the hotel where it was filmed.  What I remember is that Warrior was very tired when we filmed as his flight had been delayed 2-3 hours from Arizona and every time we took  a break, he retired to another room to call his family.  He was nothing but gracious during the shoot, even when we challenged each other during the interview.  He asked for my contact information afterwards, but never reached out.    That interview was actually the second time I interviewed Warrior, by the way.  The first time was for this website, during which he yelled at me that he would never be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.  We all know how THAT one worked out!

Speaking of Warrior, is his wife still with WWE?

Yes, she works on the creative team.

With all the announced cancellations of things like SXSW for the coronavirus, everyone has been focused on Wrestlemania but not the live event.  Do you think WWE cancels those tours leading into Mania?  I have tickets for Madison Square Garden and I have been wondering if I should go.

I don't see WWE cancelling any dates unless they are instructed to do so by the local governments/cities involved.

What do you think was the best ever WWE show in MSG?

I haven't seen every show ever but I always come back to Royal Rumble 2000 when I am asked this question.
