With Joe Biden being the new President of the United States and his mention of controlling the pandemic as one of his top priorities, do you think it was premature for WWE to announce an in-person Wrestlemania this year, and he can override Florida's state governance on public events? How likely do you feel that may happen? And regardless of governance, do you feel WWE attempting to have fans is too early, at least for Wrestlemania in a little over two months?

At this point in time, they can have fans so I have no problem with WWE making the announcement.  The NFL will have fans in the same building in less than two weeks.  Could that change?  Sure, but for now that is the way it is so I have no problem with them making the call.  As for how likely it is that the Fed will override the State, I don’t think it’s likely.

Is it me or does Pretty Peter Avalon (PPA) come across as a poor man's mix of Ravishing Rick Rude and The Genius Lanny Poffo? Although it's becoming more of a bad Rude gimmick the last few weeks (and when Leva Bates was with him, she was like a poor version of Miss Tessmacher from TNA Impact).  Now with the Walk Off, this seems like a poor version of Rude's old disrobe/pose down he would do in WWF. Your thoughts?

I don’t see either guy in Avalon, but I guess there is more Lanny than Rude, who I see none of.

With WWE announcing the next few WrestleManias, would I be completely off base by thinking they also have their next two Hall of Fame headliners built in?  With WrestleMania 38 in Dallas, that figures to be a perfect place to put  the Texas native Undertaker in the Hall.  Moving to the following year, WrestleMania 39 in Hollywood, who is more Hollywood than The Rock?  Plus, then you'd tie in the main event of that night with Rock vs. Roman.

I think you have a great theory.  Both makes perfect sense are legit headliners.

Why do you think Las Vegas got skipped for WrestleMania?

I think it’s due to the pandemic.  Obviously, LA was out this year.  Tampa gets what they should have had last year.  I don’t know this for a fact but my hunch is that given that we don’t know where the pandemic will be next year, and LA is so bad right now, WWE didn’t want to take the chance on LA not being ready next year.  Texas is much less lax on allowing fans, plus they have a good relationship with the Jones family, so Dallas is a safe choice for next year.  Plus it’s a great building and if the plan is to induct the Undertaker it makes perfect sense to run Dallas.  I would bet Vegas gets Mania 2024.

James Storm has made a few appearances for Impact Wrestling over the last few months. Is there a place on the Impact roster for a full-time James Storm in 2021?

I think there is definitely a spot for him.  He has a lot of history in the promotion.
