What is the status next year with Wrestlemania? Other sites reported that it’s been talked about internally that WM will be in Tampa next year due to the large gathering ban order set in LA. Even our local FOX affiliate in Tampa reported that Wrestlemania is likely to be in Tampa in 2021.  However I never saw this reported by you guys. And I know enough that if I don’t see it on your site, it’s not true. But what made me feel it’s true is seeing it mentioned on our local news in Tampa. Any word on this?

There is nothing to report because nothing has been decided.  We are in a pandemic and who knows if they will even be ale to have a live event?  They have talked about going back to Tampa, for sure, but it’s all up in the air right now.

Ron Fuller told this story on the Stud Cast this week. The original Dutch Mantel, who trained Ron's grandfather Roy Welch, was in a shoot to settle a promotional war. The story ends with a broken orbital bone, eyeball hanging out and vomit. Coincidence?  Do you think it's possible that someone used this, or told Vince about it?

My gut feeling is that one thing has nothing to do with the other.  Vince McMahon really doesn’t need anyone to tell him about puke after all.

On the latest Being The Elite, there was a segment with the Bucks discussing the 50+ demo.  I found their "Grandma and Grandpa's" bit offensive as I am 50 and an old school fan dating back to the ECW Arena days.  I WAS a fan of AEW, but after this segment not as much.  What's your opinion on that segment?

I will be honest, I find Being The Elite boring so I don’t watch it.  Maybe it’s because I am a grandpa too and their stuff isn’t geared to me.  With that said, if they made fun of fans over 50, that is a pretty stupid thing to do.  We all know that the 18-49 demo is the one advertisers want, but to mock fans outside of that demo is something morons would do.  Again, I didn’t see if but if they did that, Tony Khan should slap them upside the head.  Maybe advertisers don’t want those fans but guess what?  They still buy PPVs and merchandise.  Alienating them is a dumb thing to do.  But again, I didn’t hear what they said (and honestly have no desire to hear it).

As a quick follow up question to your answer on the downside guarantee, if they let you go and you are in your 90 day no compete and they are paying you what they owe weekly, if at the end of the 90 days they still owe you, let say $10,000 which is what is left of your downside, would they just cut you a check for that $10,000 at the end of the 90 days or just drop the issue?

Once your contract ends, your downside ends with it.  There would be no $10,000 left at that time.

Who wins an IT'S NOT MY FAULT match between Vince McMahon and Donald Trump?  Loser admits responsibility for something, anything?

I will say Vince wins.  Donald grew up rich so he was born that way.  Vince became rich and he has earned the right to never be wrong since he is a self made man.
