    Hi Ryan, just read your article about Cena potentially tying Flair's record. Just wanted to say it was a great read. In reference to tying the record you said "WWE needs to make it seem as significant as Hank Aaron passing Babe Ruth to become baseball's home run king." Thought that was a great line, and that is so true. They really need to make this feel special. I Have a few follow up questions for you about Cena. Do you think he will ever turn heel, do you think he will ever wrestle The Undertaker, and do you think he will ever break Flair's record?

    Appreciate being used as an authority on bad belt design in your Best/Worst Title Belts article. Thanks for the shout-out!

    The grades for the Raw article were spot on. This was a better show this week than last week by a mile. Keep up the good work Ryan.

    Can you please explain why Shephanie is a better mic worker than Shane? Never really gave a reason but would love to know your opinion.

    I love your articles Dilbert, but I feel that sometimes your love for Sasha Banks may detract a bit from the quality. Like with your recent article instead of writing her long term potential, you kinda did the obvious and said she needs ample time. What i mean is you are so busy hailing and complimenting her name it feels a bit over excessive, just some constructive criticism.

    Yea I thouht that was kinda weird myself. I see it says you live in houston, will you be attending WM and all the weekend festivities ( ROH, LU, HOF ceremony etc )? I actually live in Dallas and cant wait! I went to the WM in Houston a few years back, awesome experience!

    Great analysis from Raw grades article! Only two problems that this company has is repetitive booking and meaningless filler matches. How many times are we going to see Owens vs Ziggler? How come New Day's booking has been 50/50? The only storyline that is worth investing at the moment is Styles-Jericho feud.

    Going by your attitude era article, it seems like you feel it's very overatted, right?
