Is Aleister Black still with WWE?

Yes, he's been seen at the WWE Performance Center the last several weeks but as of this writing, has not returned to TV.

Who do you think should induct Eric Bischoff?  If you were Eric, would you take the moment to shoot on WWE destroying WCW?

There are a lot of people who make sense, but if was Eric, I'd want my kids to induct me.  What better way to be inducted than by your own family?  Secondly, Bischoff is not going to "shoot" on anything. WWE didn't destroy WCW.  The Time-Warner/AOL merger is what killed WCW, since Turner/Time-Warner's silly Hollywood accounting couldn't prop it up anymore.  It was that simple.  Read Guy Evans' excellent book Nitro for details.  Eric worked for WWE for many years (and was great in that role) and if anything, they've helped keep his legacy as a personality alive.  I think he more than appreciates it and I am sure he is legitimately touched by the induction.

What were the first wrestling action figures?  I am guessing it's the LJN WWF toys?  Which did you prefer as a kid?

I believe the AWA Remco and the WWF LJN series were the first ones released in the United States.  As I kid, I didn't have a lot of the WWF toys but I still appreciate they made the first-ever Terry Funk!

Whatever happened with the court case for Rhaka Khan?  

The trial was delayed due to COVID-19 and is scheduled for this May in Texas.

Any update on Tammy Sytch?

No update.  She remains incarcerated in New Jersey and has an active warrant out for her in Pennsylvania.  If there was any movement in her legal cases, we have no heard of them.  

I am trying to find it, but I know you reported on a drive-in wrestling weekend in New Jersey and that it was coming back.  Do you have dates?

We do and we don't.  You are actuallly thinking of The Mahoning Drive-In in Lehighton, PA, which ran a "Reel Rumble" weekend last year with live wrestling and pro wrestling films.  Michael Liedtke wrote a great piece covering his time attending, which you can find here.  The Mahoning announced they would do a second annual one this year but as of yet, nothing has been officially revealed.   I would advise keeping an eye on their website at www.mahoningdit.com.  I have attended events at Mahoning in the past and they are nothing short of amazing in what they put together, so I hope you get to check them out down the line.
