Before I get started on the Wrestling Q&A, I have two things to say. First off, my condolences to the friends and family of Fred Fox, long time local radio personality who passed away earlier today. First with WEWO and then later, as the owner of WLNC, Fred was truly and will always be the “Voice of Scotland County”. RIP Fred.
And secondly, we are just hours away from the Scotland High School “Fighting Scots” playing for the 4A State Championship. I graduated Scotland, Class of 85… and best of luck to my former High School. Bring it home guys. GO SCOTS!
And now, let’s do some wrestling…
1. With the end of the year coming to a near… who would you say are you top ten wrestlers in the world?
I’m mainly a WWE guy, but I do try to pay attention to the rest of the wrestling companies as well. In my opinion, the Top Ten right now would be: Brock, AJ Styles, Miz, Kenny Omega, Cody Rhodes, Jay Lethal, Asuka, Cesaro, Kevin Owens and Neville, subject to change of course, but all of these folks can always be counted on to put on a top notch match and work well with anyone.
2. CAN or WILL Broken Matt Hardy work in WWE ??
So long as Vince refrains from getting too involved and allows Matt Hardy the creative control he needs, I think Broken Matt Hardy can and will do very well as part of the WWE Universe.
3. Who’s the top ten best tag teams in the world currently ?
This is only opinion and speculation on my part, but if I was trying to get together the best tag teams in wrestling today for an event, I would go with Cesaro & Sheamus, Gallows & Anderson, The Usos, Nick & Matt Jackson, The Revival, The Miztourage (Axel & Dallas), Harper and Rowan, The Hardy Boyz, Briscoe Brothers and Owens / Zayn.
4. Hypothetically: If WWE were to create a shoot, modern day version of the Brawl For All tournament, with MMA instead of boxing, (EXCLUDING BROCK) who would be some guys you would like to see compete and who do you think would win? Who would fill out your 16 man bracket?
Sixteen WWE guys that I think would do well in an MMA style “Brawl For All” type tournament? I think I’d go with Sheamus, Karl Anderson, Samoa Joe, Shinsuke Nakamura, Drew McIntyre, Rhyno, Jinder Mahal, Big Show, Roman Reigns, Bobby Roode, Braun Strowman, Curtis Axel, John Cena, Rusev, Luke Gallows and Cesaro. And my winner, at the end, I think would be either Joe or Nakamura.
5. Do you see Batista be as big of a movie star as the Rock?
What the Rock has achieved goes above and beyond almost anyone in Hollywood history, much less anyone from the world of wrestling. Batista will and is doing well, but will he ever be as big as The Rock? Nope!
And there you go. Thanks for reading. Comments, thoughts, questions and all feedback is welcome and appreciated. Until the next time, take it easy & have a great one.
