AesSedaiFan is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Could Mat learn to channel?

Theory behind this question is the similarity between Nynaeve's ability to sense danger as if hearing the weather, which in tGH: "Any woman who could listen to the wind could channel" and Mat hearing dice for important/dangerous events in his life.

I have terrible formatting skills, but:

Q: Back on Mat again. Could you comment on whether or not he may be able to channel?

RJ: Nope. Not a chance. Can't do it. He can get anyone in the world to dance with him just about but he can't channel worth a darn note.

Q: He's still young enough for it not to show up, right?

RJ: No he's not going to be . . . He can't channel. But if you approach him the right way he will come to your birthday party on a Harley.

Back before RJ answered this directly, I'd have bet the farm on it.

While in the tower, he displays all the signs of being able to detect a woman channeling.

Rand displays them in tSR when Elayne and Egwene come to him in the Stone. And Mat displays them in the Tower when Lanfear comes in and starts channeling at him.

It led to a lot of speculation, hence RJ's answer.
