Leave the Google Hangout link as an option. Have all three call-in options as choices.

The problem with Hangouts is that it’s difficult to control when someone calls in. Calls automatically jump on air until I manually mute. When we’re ready, the caller has to be instructed to manually “un-mute” themselves. It all results in a bit of awkwardness and is overall not a platform really designed for a call-in show. If there’s enough demand for video calling, I’ll definitely consider opening it up again.

On the subject of WWE extending contracts due to injury, I don’t know if this is the same thing, but the Seattle Mariners have an injury clause in Felix Hernandez’s contract which allows them the option to extend his contract 1 year if he spends more than 130 consecutive days on the DL.

I’ve been longing for a show similar to The Law, this is now my favourite show on the site.

It’s also great that the caller’s actually ask decent questions and make valid points.

Long may this continue.

Regarding shooting 2 endings, didn’t they do this with Bret and Luger in 94 with both holding The WWF Championship?

Also could it be that 1 of them might be getting called up but they don’t know which 1?
