- Contrary to what I've read on Twitter, I'm NOT doing a 'shoot' interview with anyone.....and I'm STILL NOT buying TNA nor would I ever want to affect the team of Mike Tenay and Taz. They have great chemistry and as I have said before they do a great job with what is provided them on their monitor.
- We are in the process of finalizing a venue for my first one man show in the USA which will now officially be in New York City in early 2014. That part of the deal is done. Ticket info, etc is coming soon.
- Excited to read all the rumors regarding the long awaited WWE Network which looks as if it will launch in 2014. It only makes sense to launch the network during WrestleMania season and take advantage of all the media opportunities to sell/promote both the network and WM30. If that philosophy is accurate, that would have the Network launching in February or March. All that is TBD but it's been an exhaustive, expensive work in progress for many individuals for a long, long time. If WWE's PPV's all move to the Network then the chances of this entity becoming a significant success early increase greatly.
- I wasn't shocked to hear of Chris Hero aka Kassius Ohno's release from WWE. I'm a big fan of Chris' work and know that he will be successful doing his own thing in the indy world. He's a good person and a very talented, smart in ring talent. Quite simply, at this point in time of his life, Chris did not fit as well in the WWE system as all involved would have preferred. Too many fans will over analyze this matter and delve into finding out who was "at fault." Sometimes no one is totally "at fault" as it generally takes multiple entities to make anything become a success, or not, in pro wrestling or in many other areas of sports and entertainment.
