Has there been any rumblings of changes or moving up of the remaining Saudi show in 2020 at this time?

There were rumors of trying to do WrestleMania there but obviously that never happened. Given that there are travel restrictions all over the world right now, I don’t see it happening.  

I have finally gone for the WWE Network and got a free trial. Watched a few shows and part one of WrestleMania over the last couple of days and it keeps crashing. That’s not the worst part of it, it’s the fact I have to start all the shows from the start again. Very irritating. How do people manage and why haven’t WWE done something about this or am I just haven’t a bad experience? 

I had absolutely no problems at all over WrestleMania weekend, and didn’t hear from anyone that did, so it was probably your connection or streaming device.

I recently read an article where they were quoting Vince Russo and Jim Cornette from Dark Side of the Ring saying that the Brawl for It All was created just to see JBL knocked out. My question is a bit of a two part. First why is it that the wrestling community in general writes these two (especially) Russo off as blowhards whose words should be taken with a grain of salt but you put a camera in front of them and call it a "documentary" and suddenly everyone is taking their words like it's the gospel? The second part is are you worried that shows like that could/do create false narratives that (most) fans act like they are fact because they are presented in a glossy easy to digest manner? 

I don’t know what community you are going to but I don’t write Jim Cornette off as a blowhard.  You may not agree with his opinions, but he tells the truth as he knows it.  If Cornette says it’s a fact, I believe him.  As for Russo, well let’s just say I believe Cornette.  In 2020, where many people don’t actually seek out the truth in matters and instead believe what they want to believe, that isn’t a concern to me because it’s something that people do in all walks of life, not wrestling.  Dark Side is what it is, they are trying to create a controversial program to entice viewers to watch.  I mean, just look at the name of the show!  Personally, I get it.  If others don’t, that’s just the way things are.

I get that WWE owns the Performance Center building and can run shows there anytime, but with Full Sail University shut down and the entire state of Florida under stay-at-home orders, how are they able to run tapings out of their usual studio at Full Sail?

They aren't!  They are running them out of the Performance Center, which is about three miles away from Full Sail.

Is Brock going away anytime soon?

I think that now that the Title has been taken off of him, and given the situation with the pandemic, Brock will probably be out of WWE’s storylines for the near future.  But as soon as things get back to normal and they are running the way that they used to, he will be back.  And he should be, just not as the champion in my opinion.
