    1. Have you seen “Card Subject To Change?” Also, you are awesome.

    Question comes from @smashley_ashley on Twitter via the #AskBradWard hashtag.

    Brad: 

    Thanks for the compliments. I have not because something about Kevin Sullivan irks me. I will give it a watch in the next month and review it in some shape or form.

    2. Is your Japanese arm drag still the most dangerous technique in your arsenal?

    Question from Anonymous via Ask.FM

    Brad:

    In an American style match, definitely but it is just one of the many moves in a New Japan style match.

    3. Do you have ties to anyone important in WWE and TNA?

    Question from Anonymous via Ask.FM

    Brad:

    WWE Games, yes. WWE, I converse with some WWE.com employees. As far as TNA goes, I have had discussions but they didn’t really go anywhere. I respect both companies for competing with juggernauts like NFL and NBA.

    4. How many people in WWE history do you consider to have been “the guy” at some point in time like Jericho and Edge have discussed?

    Question from Anonymous via Ask.FM

    Brad:

    Bruno Sammartino, Hulk Hogan, Bret Hart, Shawn Michaels, Steve Austin, Triple H, John Cena, Batista and CM Punk. The Undertaker is there too as while it took a while, he is bigger than anything in pro wrestling.

    Ask Brad Ward: The Debut Edition

    Brad Ward is a true wrestling super-fan. He watches more shows and supports more promotions than any wrestling fan we know. His insight is knowledgeable and unique to a point where we decided to host a weekly Q and A with him.

    To submit questions for next week’s edition of Ask Brad Ward, please use the Hashtag #AskBradWard on Twitter or submit them on AskFM. Brad will choose the best questions each week and answer them every Saturday here on WrestlingOnEarth.

    1. Why do you think viewers tuned out during the third hour of RAW this week?

    Brad:

    Honestly I think it is the perception of what people think of Big Show. He has been booked as a comedy act forever and people don’t associate him as something they want to pay to see. Also, there is the eventual match and booking The Big Show in a title match is not using your talent to their strengths.

    2. Who on the current independent wrestling scene do you think will eventually become the biggest mainstream wrestling star?

    Brad:

    That’s a really hard question because once they get into developmental who knows how long they stay, what gimmick they are given and if they are able to weather the storm of politics. Prince Devitt, Kyle O’Reilly, Davey Richards and Drew Gulak come to mind.

    3. What is your favorite piece of wrestling merchandise that you have ever owned?

    Brad:

    If you know me, you know I love my video games but I think I am going with WWE Wrestlemania programs. It’s always cool to see who made it. It is a litmus of who WWE is pushing over the next year, unless they change their mind. It’s also fun to see the write-ups about the legends in WWE’s perspective.
