“It’s going to be a memorable week for yours truly as I make my MMA play by play debut this Friday night on PPV from Tulsa, ironically enough, for the BattleGrounds MMA event that I will broadcast along side Chael Sonnen. This PPV features an 8 Man, Single Elimination Tournament with the winner earning $50,000. All major cable and satellite systems are carrying the PPV and hope that you will give our show a shot. I’ve been waiting for years for this opportunity and I’d love for you to share in it with me. With that said, let’s grill.”

“Looking forward to see how WWE commits and develops the trio of Big E, Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods in the ensuing weeks. I like all three young athletes and feel that they can contribute if they are given significant, and not prelim, creative in which to work. Also, because they are all men of color, perhaps too much is being made to compare them to the Nation of Domination of a generation ago which is a non issue to me. Judge the new trio on their own merits and not on the past that was at a totally different place and time.”

“I wonder what the chance would be to see a CM Punk vs. Brock Lesnar WM31 WWE Title Bout? Stranger things have happened and that pairing would guarantee WWE a ton of new subscribers and likely ignite the PPV marketplace as well. Communication and money solve many ills and that would be a terrific main event considering that as it stands today WWE has major work to do in assembling what looks to be more of an ensemble card than one that is one or two main event heavy at this time. I’m sure that I’m not alone in wanting to see a Lesnar-Punk headliner at WM31 because it equates to big money for all involved.”
