Wrestling Q&A

Are you ready to talk some of the world’s greatest sport? Of course you are. I have a few questions that I came across on my Facebook page, as well as a couple that were sent to me via my IM. And now that you fine folks provided the questions, it’s my turn to provide the answers. Let’s get busy, shall we?

Name some tag teams you would go to a indie show to meet… former wwe tna or maybe a high scale indie team (hint they can’t be under contract).

There aren’t too many wrestlers left from what I consider the “glory days”, the nineties, out there still performing that I’d like to see and meet that I haven’t already had the chance to talk to or meet yet, but there is one that comes to mind. They don’t team anymore, but both men still perform and are among my favorites, both on a personal and an in-ring basis. I’m talking about Lenny Lane and Lodi, aka “The West Hollywood Blondes”. I would definitely leave the comfort of the Salt Palace and travel to a live event to see these two men perform.

Does anyone feel that the raw women’s title is just a hot potato? Am I alone in thinking this?

Ever since Charlotte left to go to Smackdown Live, it really doesn’t seem like the RAW title gets as much notice as the Smackdown title, but I wouldn’t call it a hot potato. It went from Bayley to Alexa to Sasha and then back to Alexa who seems to have a pretty firm hold on the belt. Bayley was injured so a title change was necessary and Sasha seems to be given the gimmick that she can win belts, but not defend it. The title changes make sense so far.

What are some slight gimmick changes that you would like to see?

I’d like to see Zack Ryder quit being a goof and get a mean streak (and a push). I’d like to see Tamina get some respect. I’d like to see Daniel Bryan be allowed to get “one more match”. And I’d like to see John Cena do the heel turn and become more real / legit, like Hogan did when he went from “Hulk” to “Hollywood” in the nWo.

Who do you think TNA dropped the ball with the most?

There are so many choices to pick from. TNA has made more bad choices than good ones. I’ll go with the Hardys just because they’re the most recent example of being total idiots and the bad choice that is most fresh in my mind. TNA needs to be DELETED! Also, F*CK the OWL!

Will Ric Flair ever be back in a WWE ring?

We’ll never see Ric take a bump again or bleed, sweat and pay the price, but we don’t need to. As soon as he’s able, Flair will be back in WWE, popping up occasionally and showing the entire world why diamonds are forever and so is the “Nature Boy!”.

Will Hulk Hogan ever return to the WWE?

Look at what I said about Flair and it’s the same here. It’s not “If”, but just a matter of “when”, brother. Count on it.

Do you think Jinder will still be WWE Champion at Wrestlemania?

I doubt it, but I would love to see it happen. Jinder is doing a great job so far as the WWE Champion, in my opinion, and I’d love to see his run as the champ last at least until Wrestlemania if not longer.

Would you like to see the return of the “Gimmick Battle Royal” at Wrestlemania?

The last time this happened was at Wrestlemania XVII and it was fun to watch. It’s been fifteen years so what the hell. Give the “Legends” a payday and let them perform. I’d love to see it.

Should the women of the WWE have their own show on the Network?

Their own show, No. They get plenty of airtime on RAW and Smackdown Live and another show to fill would amount to overkill and too much in my opinion. I would though, have maybe two specials on the WWE Network, just like the NXT Takeover shows and have them featuring the women of Raw, Smackdown and NXT. This owuld give the women another chance to show their stuff and highlight the Women’s Division without too much over-exposure.

What are the chances of Ronda Rousey signing on with WWE full time either this year or in 2018?

Full time is not going to happen. But I could see her doing a Brock type of deal with a limited number of appearances and maybe one or two matches a year. Full time on the road is too much to expect from Ronda, but maybe a match at Wrestlemania (teaming with Rock against Steph and HHH or in a singles match with Steph) wouldn’t be out of the question. And Ronda versus Asuka? I know I’m not the only one who wants to see that happen.

And I guess that’s it with the wrestling questions. I was just getting warmed up too. Oh well! *sighs* Thank you for reading. Questions, comments and any and all feedback is welcome and appreciated. Until the next time, take it light. See ya!
