Are you ready for a few wrestling questions? These questions come from my Facebook page and the feed from the KoK. The answers, that’s just me. Let’s do this…
1. “What are your thoughts on the announcement of the first ever women’s rumble match?”
I think it’s a great idea and definitely time to do it. I’m still curious if it will be a 20-Woman or 30-Woman match and who all will be involved? I know that all of the WWE women from RAW and Smackdown with the possible exception of maybe the RAW and Smackdown Women’s Champions, Alexa Bliss and Charlotte, who I suspect will either face each other in a rematch from the Survivor Series or maybe in defenses of their individual titles. Without Charlotte and Alexa, there are currently 19 women on the active WWE roster. Throw in a few NXT standouts and maybe a surprise or two like Trish, Beth Phoenix, Kharma, Victoria, etc and it would be easy to get that number up to 25 or even thirty females. Heck, we may even see a Bella or two and the debut of Ronda Rousey. However it works out, I like this idea and think it’s a great move by the powers-that-be of the WWE.
2. Top 3 favorite indie wrestlers?
Michael Younglood, Ethan Storm and since the Main Attraction has retired (and Chris Steele & Scott Powers, you are missed), the team of Brad Branson & Derk Douglas, aka BD Productions. Honorable mention goes to a guy named Hunter Holtzclaw, who doesn’t know it yet, but he will one day be my future ex-husband. Damn, he’s sexy.
3. What if Roman wins BOTH Rumbles?
If that happens, Roman has a lot of ‘splaining to do. (Use a Ricky Ricardo accent when reading this… lol)
4. Out of the current Raw/Smackdown rosters….If Ted Dibiase was to return and make and have someone be his Million Dollar Champ…Who would you choose?
If Ted was to return and have a new “Million Dollar Champion”, my first choice was Curtis Axel, but after thinking more about it, as much as I like Axel, he wouldn’t be right for this role. I think the best current option on the WWE main roster would be “Glorious” Bobby Roode.
5. Name a wrestler that’s widely considered an all time great that was NOT good on the mic.
“Beautiful” Bobby Eaton was the first name that came to mind. Jack Brisco, Rick Steamboat & Chris Benoit would also fall into this category.
6. Instead of the rumored return of the XFL, what if Vince is actually positioning to buy the Carolina Panthers?
I would love to see this. Vince was originally raised here in NC so that would almost certainly assure that the Panthers stay in Charlotte and in North Carolina. The only question is, could the NFL handle Vince McMahon. He would certainly be a better option than Sean Combs or Puffy or Brother Love or whatever he’s calling himself now. I hope that Vince does give this idea some consideration. That would be awesome.
7. CM Punk returns and wins the Royal Rumble. AJ Lee returns and wins the Royal Rumble. They both go win at WM and we have a new power couple. How amazing would that be?
That would be amazing and I’d love to see it. It won’t happen since Punk is under contract to the UFC and Dana White right now, but it would make for some truly amazing TV and fun times for the WWE fans.
And that’s all for now. I’m going to go Netflix for a while now and try to maybe figure out what I’m going to do to finish my Christmas shopping tomorrow night. I still have Mom to do… Oh vey! Thanks for reading. All comments, thoughts and feedback is welcome and appreciated. Until the next time, take care and have a very Merry Christmas.
