You may have talked about it briefly in the forum, but I'd like you to expand your thoughts on this new narrative that Okada, despite having beaten Tanahashi at Wrestle Kingdom, is still not NJPW's ace, either with regards to his presentation or the way that he's viewed by the Japanese fans - that is, Ace chants for Tanahashi, and Tanahashi being more over than Okada in most areas. Also, do you feel that Okada is a strong and long-term Ace, or a transitional one until a better one comes along? Most people think he still shines most as the cocky youth heel.

Thoughts on the theory of Jado being a better tournament booker than Gedo?

Since the NOAH split G1s/BoSJs just seem to have lost something booking wise in most eyes, with things happening like Naito randomly getting knocked out the day before the final day for no reason at all last year. Meanwhile NOAH's Global League last year was magnificently booked.

Why doesn't ROH utilize 3 year contracts anymore? Is it too expensive? Were deals of that length during the taped PPV era a reason Silkin bled money? I ask this question because with WWE now scooping up names, 3 year deals would provide comfort for the booking team to actually put more of the roster in substantial grooves.

Also, I still wanna know what 3 singles matches you'd book for WM33.

Not sure if you watched this week's NXT show but I would like to hear your takes on Hideo Itami's current physical status post surgery. Do you think his chances of ever making the main roster are doomed? Do you ever see him being the same again?

What movies/tv shows do you enjoy the most? Is there a genre that you prefer, or a particular era of film/tv? Do you have a top 10 movies/tv shows?

1) Rank in order of dumbness : i)Wikipedia editors
ii) Yelp reviewers
iii)GUTS World refs
iv) Jado and Genba (NOAH bookers)

2) Is AJPW a viable Promotion of the year contender, since they have easily grown the most over that time period ? (Shows have been great too)

3) Is Yujiro better than Tama Tonga ?

The vaunted "IWC" loves to eat its own - ie. what once was cool will become a whipping boy once it becomes too popular. Essentially, it's the hipster class of wrestling. It happened to ROH, Dolph Ziggler, Dean Ambrose, and currently seems to be happening to New Japan judging from responses to the G1 so far. With that in mind, what current "internet darlings" are in danger of having the mob turn on them? Conversely, what whipping boy has the potential to have the tide of dislike turn back to love in the near future?

What in the fuck does the Southern wrestling contingent have against you? It seems like Fray and Dylan are always subtweeting you and making snide remarks. One caught my attention this morning, complaining about your love of Ishii.

1. Why are people so quick to judge the brand split? Doesn't it make so much more sense to let things play out and to re-evaluate come WrestleMania in Orlando?

2. While YOSHI HASHI has improved and is a solid guy, he's still not an elite performer. Why are people putting him over?

What is the endgame for the WWN/WWE relationship? Will we ever see WWN footage on the Network?

Will we ever see ROH and/or NJPW on a Roku channel/app that we can access from a TV?

What's the next promotion that gets raided by WWE like the New Japan exodus?

Darn, I was going to ask do you wanna build a snowman (that's my new goal in wrestling)?
