Whatever happened to the Vince McMahon Netflix documentary?

It's still in production.  I would assume his Pat McAfee and Steve Austin interactions at Wrestlemania will be part of the final project.

You just reported that Sonya Deville is slotted as the #3 heel on Smackdown. She is challenging for the Raw womens title at backlash. Is this another sign of the end of the brand split? 

No, I think it's a situation where the company is just trying to maximize things at the moment because it's not like they can or should just keep going with Becky Lynch vs. Bianca Belair chapter 105.  They are doing a secondary story on what's always been a secondary B-tier PPV.  My guess that is just a short storyline and then everyone will move on.  The brand split ends when everyone is on every show every week.  It'll never be acknowledged but that's how we can define when it ends.

What's your best advice for attending a PWG show?

Buy a ticket, wear a mask, have fun.

When New Japan runs the States with Strong and the PPVs, do they bring in their staff from Japan?  Their production team?

No.  They do have some staff who come in from Japan but they are supplanted by Americans.

Is there a venue you'd like to see pro wrestling in but it hasn't happened yet?

Yankee Stadium would be pretty cool obviously.

I once visted Palo Duro Canyon State Park in Texas a few years back when I drove Route 66 and there's an amphitheater there that does a big theatrical production (Texas the musical, yes, really!) and I thought that given the setting and the location, it would make for a pretty awesome independent wrestling show presentation:

Will you travel to Wales for the WWE PPV in September?

No.  I can 100% attest to the fact I will not be going to Wales.
