I saw Chris Jericho played the biker rally at Sturgis, where pretty much everyone say screw social distancing and masks.  Should Jericho be quarantined and kept off of AEW TV for at least two weeks?

If I am Tony Khan, absolutely, there is no way I bring him to TV for the next two weeks.  I don’t care what Jericho says about who he did or didn’t come in contact with.  That is a massive rally of people who went out of their way to NOT social distance.  And, he didn’t even play outside, he played inside.  It’s great they did temperature checks but that is not a COVID test.  Hopefully Jericho didn’t come in contact with anyone that had COVID but that isn’t a chance I would take.  No way, no how.

And what was he thinking when he banned Jim Cornette from watching AEW?

I have no idea.  All he ended up doing was give Cornette’s podcast some free advertising.  As Cornette said, he will keep watching Dynamite to talk about on his podcast.  

Why did AEW feel the need to do blood in the Mox vs. Darby match?  It wasn’t needed and it didn’t even make sense since it was a babyface vs. babyface match.

I am on record as saying I think using the blade, given what we now know about blood born diseases, is totally irresponsible (and that doesn’t even take into the concept of self mutilation being pretty macabre).  Also, doing it during a pandemic is also pretty risky.  But yes, to do it in a match with two babyfaces, I just don’t see the need.  No way, no how.

If you are Tony Khan, do you penalize Sammy Guervaro for the careless way he threw the chair at Matt Hardy?

I am Tony, yes I do.  I know it was a mistake in the heat of the moment but when someone gives you their body, it’s a mistake you just can’t make.  Matt was laying there, prone.  He trusted Sammy to protect him and he did the exact opposite of that.  I would, at least, fine him for that, no matter how bad he feels about it.  If you are a professional, working on TNT, you can’t make that mistake.  It wasn’t a missed spot, it was really bad judgment.

I saw that Dynamite nipped Raw in the 18-34 demographic last week.  What do you make of that?

AEW did a 0.29 in the 18-34 demographic and a 0.36 in the 18-49 demographic.  Raw did a 0.28 in the 18-34 demographic and a 0.51 in the 18-49 demographic.  The previous week, AEW did a 0.19 in the 18-34 demographic and a 0.30 in the 18-49 demographic.  Raw did a 0.26 in the 18-34 demographic and a 0.48 in the 18-49 demographic.  What do I make of it?  Given the margin of error they are close to equally popular in that demographic and WWE is more popular in the larger demographic.
