Daniel Bryan and WWE ratings:
"Amazing that some people think that Daniel Bryan's return can cure all WWE TV ratings ills alone. Not true. Bryan should not be considered for a return until he is completely, 100% medically cleared of which WWE will insure. Ratings go down just like live event tickets sales and for the same reasons....the paying customers are not getting what they feel that they want. Promoters get market research daily. Those that listen and compromise what they they may be feeling is the right way to go generally are rewarded with increased profitability. Those that think that the fans don't know what the fans really want, generally continue to down trend. It's simple marketing 101. Listen to the paying customers and allow them to guide you to what some refer to the Promised Land or, better said, the land of profitability."
ROH and possibly calling Wrestle Kingdom 10 for NJPW:
"Great match on ROH Wednesday night between Adam Cole and Nakamura which I have now seen three times. The NJPW talent adds a big lift to the ROH presentation without question. I'd still love to do Wrestle Kingdom 10 in January and any big shows for NJPW's digital service to help build an English speaking audience."
"Plus, main eventers cannot get 'over' trading victories with each other. 50/50 booking helps no one."
