On attending this week’s NXT TV tapings: “Yours truly will head to Orlando this week to take in the NXT tapings at Full Sail University and then be a part of the Mick Foley Cheap Pops show along with @JCLayfield on Friday night at the NXT Arena.Tickets are going fast a www.me/LMJFs. I’m looking forward to seeing many old friends, the fans and watching the amazing, young talents perform in the ring on Thursday evening.”
On the way Neville is being used: “Some fans complaining about how Neville is being utilized but if he was driven down the fans throat they would spit him back up. There is a fine balance these days on how fan favorites are marketed and going the safer, more organic route appears to be best.”
On the many lawsuits currently being brought against WWE: “Seems like attorneys who work on contingency are spotlighting the wrestling biz these days. I’d be shocked if any of them made a dime on any of their law suits.”
On New Japan Pro Wrestling: “To be clear, New Japan was pleased with our broadcasting work back in January at Wrestle Kingdom 9 and I’d love to do more work with them in the future if tht materializes. Nonetheless there are much larger fish to fry for them to address as it relates to doing more North American,etc PPV presentations than who will be announcing their show. I still enjoy broadcasting and hopeful to more in various genres in 2015.”
