Do you think Sting signing with AEW gets him disqualified from the WWE Hall of Fame?

NO.  It certainly means he'll be 10000% downplayed however.

Does Sting now get to do a musical number?

I always saw him as more of a tap dance guy.

Great job on the site as always.  I have a quick question about Big Van Vader.  I seem to remember a wrestler named Leon White in the WWWF, and I remember him wrestling a few television matches against Ivan Putski early in Putski’s career.  Was that the same wrestler as the man who would become Vader?  Thanks as always.

That would be a completely different wrestler.  Vader didn’t start wrestling until the late 1980s and Putski began his career many years before that.

My nephew who is 11 just got into wrestling over the past year and brought up a question to me the other day about why pay-per-views are generally on a Sunday where most kids wouldn't get the chance to finish watching the show live because it's a school night. I am 25 and for as long as I can remember pay per views were always on a Sunday. Was this always the case or just something that evolved as the pay-per-view industry grew?

It was something that happened over time.  Initially, PPVs were usually on Sunday but shows would also take place on Mondays and other days as well.  Once Raw locked in Mondays, they usually held shows on Sunday.  In recent years, AEW and Impact have run on Saturdays while ROH has used Fridays.  

Do you think the reason WWE Heat isn't on the Network is the WWE restaurant version of the show could be dated?

I assure you that is not why.  It's likely that they just haven't gotten there yet.  Their library is MASSIVE.

Will we ever see the ECW DVDs you wrote on the WWE Network and if so, do you get paid?

You won't see them.  When WWE purchased the ECW library in the bankruptcy, the Pioneer Home Videos were exempt from that purchase and WWE does not have those titles.  I guess they could approach whoever holds the rights for the DVDs and buy them out, but WWE already owns the rights to the original footage, so they'd be paying for stuff they technically already have the ability to use.  So, I don't see it,.  Even if they did, I signed a contract and was paid for that work in 1999 so there's no way I am getting paid again in 2020 for it.  That's a long gone project.
