Ross addresses members of the wrestling media who thought his fall at the NJPW Cow Palace show was a stunt and part of a bigger storyline. He says there’s no truth to that, and although he’s feeling better he’s still having trouble sleeping.

A listener writes into the show, saying that he thinks Roma Reigns has everything it takes to become a legend. The caller doesn’t understand why Reigns is constantly ridiculed by the WWE Universe. Ross doesn’t think it’s very complicated at all, noting that it has become “cool” to boo Reigns now and that’s why fans continue to do it.

Another listener writes into the show, asking Ross what he thinks Hogan’s role will be with WWE now that he’s returned to the company. Ross thinks Hogan might just have a Hall of Fame role, noting that Hogan doesn’t really need to wrestle anymore at 65 years old. However, if he was to wrestle one more time, Ross thinks it should be at a huge event in New York.

Ross notes that the main roster booking of Asuka has certainly been controversial since WrestleMania. Ross had an issue with Carmella’s post-show interview after she defeated Asuka at Extreme Rules. He thought it was over the top and awkward, and it almost seemed as if she went into business for herself during her post-show interview. He adds that Carmella has continued to improve during her main roster run.
