Do you see a shorter term extension of the TV rights contracts with FOX and NBCU to coincide with the expiration of the WWE Network/Peacock deal in 2026? I think this would be the smarter move so that in 2026, WWE can negotiate a BIG media deal for the complete TV and SVOD package.

I honestly have no idea what to expect because I don’t know what Endeavor’s plans are.  I expect those plants to be grand for sure.

What do you think of Riddle turning on KO/ Sami once Orton comes back? That could lead to them feuding w/ KO/ Sami for the tag titles as heels. 

I could see it happening, for sure, for the reason you mentioned.

If and when the WWE decides to bring back blood due to being purchased by Endeavor, do you think that WWE’s female talents will be allowed to blade as the focus of the WWE Women’s Division is on wrestling talent and not on looks?

God, I hope they don’t bring back the blade.  There is no need for it in what WWE does.  If they did bring it back, I guess it would be for everyone.  I hope it doesn’t happen.

Do you ever foresee a world where Stephanie McMahon returns to WWE in some capacity, especially once the Endeavor deal goes through? Or is she gone for good?

I could see a world where she comes back.  My crystal ball says that world will be at a time when Vince McMahon is no longer with it.

Endeavor severed ties with Saudi Arabia in 2019 after the Khashoggi murder. How do you think WWE’s deal with the Saudis will be addressed once the merger is complete? The Saudi partnership is still absolutely disgusting and I’m surprised there still isn’t as much furor about it as there was five years ago.

I don’t believe there is an out in the deal so I would think they will have to honor the contract.  After that?  I can’t say.
