When it comes to the greatest sport in the world, you have the questions and I have the answers. It’s time to do another fun filled “Wrestling Q&A”, exclusive to the pages of my site, DougMaynard.com. The questions come from Facebook and the KoK (Kult of Kayfabe). The answers come from me. And let’s go do this…
Why wasn’t Enzo a heel this entire time?
Because when partnered with Big Cass, to kind of even things out, he was bearable and tolerable. Without the big man and all of the catch-phrases to balance out his general annoying and cockiness, his true self shows and it was time to move him to the heel column.
In your opinions, out of the wrestling gimmicks you remember (per wrestler) what was the worst in your opinion?
We can go with Hornswoggle being Mr. McMahon’s son as one, but that was more of a story-line than a wrestler gimmick. How about the Yeti in WCW? Or when Chavo Guerrero became white (Kerwin White that is). Terry Taylor as the Red Rooster was a classic bad gimmick. And to top it off, how about Dustin Rhodes as Seven in WCW for all of one week. Those are the first ones to come to mind.
Who will be the first first WWE wrestler to take a knee?
And who will be the first wrestler that Vince McMahon fires for real? Unless it’s part of a story line, I can’t see any WWE superstars legit taking a knee during the National Anthem. If Rusev or maybe Kevin Owens was to do it as part of their characters, so be it, but for real? Nah, it’s not going to happen.
If you could own one piece of wrestling paraphernalia that has some kind of historical or even sentimental value to you, what would it be?
The gold domed NWA World Heavyweight Championship title belt is the first thing that comes to mind. Anything else would pale in comparison.
Shield vs Miztourage at TLC: Winner takes all 3 belts. Thoughts?
I’d love to see this match happen, but with all the belts on the line, the Intercontinental Championship and the RAW Tag Team Titles, that might be a bit of overkill, at least for now. Maybe somewhere down the road, it could happen, but give it time to build and fester for a while first.
Out of all the In-Ring relationships (any promotion) what pairing did you think was the best (not including couples who are still together e.g Triple H/Stephanie McMahon).
The story-line created couples that I consider the best are / were: Jamie Noble & Nidia, Stevie Richards and Victoria and Chuck & Billy…
What are your favorite championship belts? Any promotion or era.
Aside from the NWA World Championship gold domed belt, my other two favorites, above all others, are the red and silver NWA World Television Championship, held by Arn Anderson among others and the classic Mid-Atlantic Championship title belt. It had a unique look and was just a distinct and attractive title belt.
Will Carmella cash in at Hell in a Cell?
It’s Charlotte going against the champion, Natayla, at Hell In A Cell. Will Carmella cash in her Money In The Bank briefcase? It’s possible, but I don’t think so. Not yet anyhow.
And that’s all the questions so it’s time to close this up. Thanks for reading. Comments, thoughts and questions are welcome and appreciated. Until the next time, take care. Love you – mean it.
