Your question is answered.
No.You think it's answered,but it's not.
Burns has no bargaining power over there,so should he go over for a shitty offer?
He hasn't had one single offer to go over,he earns good money here,so untiul there is a much better than career best offer for him to go over there,your answer is inconclusive at this point.
But you did say that he would be seen as a joke,which is exactly the point I'm making.And I assume you're inferring that Wlad is a joke champion too?
