Ross informs that he’ll be a guest at Starrcast 2. He might be doing something with Jerry Lawler, or with Ric Flair and Ricky Steamboat. The final details haven’t been confirmed, but he has liked all the ideas he’s heard so far.

Ross notes that AEW sold out Double or Nothing in 4 minutes. He points out that they could have sold out a stadium given how quickly they sold out the seats they had, and they don’t even had television distribution yet. Ross thinks that’s incredible and congratulates all of the people involved.

A listener writes into the show and asks Ross what AEW has to do to avoid becoming the next WCW. Ross says they need to continue to build stars and they need to continue to deliver an entertaining product to their fans. They have struck a cord with a lot of fans on social media, and if they can carry that over to their weekly television show this Fall, that’ll be a great start.

Another listener writes into the show and asks Ross how the art of selling can be revived. Ross notes that management can step in and tell talents that if they don’t sell more they won’t be wrestling. Wrestlers typically don’t want to sell because they think it makes them look weak, but that isn’t the case whatsoever. Those who think that are insecure and they don’t understand the art of the business as well as they might think.
