Tossing Salt Presents:
January 10, 2018
Before I get started doing the wrestling Q&A stuff, let me wish a very Happy Birthday to one of the biggest wrestling stars of all time, Marcus Alexander “Buff” Bagwell, who turns a whopping 49 years young today. He’s buff and he’s the stuff and Happy Birthday to the former WCW Tag Team Champion.
And also, Happy Birthday to someone who really matters, the Infamous K-Mak, aka my brother, BFF and the Jay to my Silent Bob, Kenneth McDonald. I love you bro and wish you the very best of all days cause you are the very best of all bros. Happy Birthday!
And now, let’s do some wrestling Q&A. The questions come from my Facebook timeline and mostly from the KoK. The answers are all me. Let’s do this…
1. What do you think about AJ Styles defending the WWE Championship against both Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn in a handicap match at the Royal Rumble?
At first, I didn’t like it and was wondering how they’ll go with it if Kevin and Sami actually win at the Rumble. Then they said “co-champions” and it’s getting interesting. I know people are getting in an uproar about how “disrespectful” it is to the WWE Championship (well, Shane and the announcers mainly), but there is a precedent already in place with both the Divas Championship, which was co-held by Michelle McCool and Layla, and also with the Intercontinental Championship, which was held jointly by Chyna and Chris Jericho. So it’s been done before and could make for some interesting dynamics in the storyline between Shane and the Owens / Zayn combo, as well as the Zayn / Owens partnership. I say, what the hell… do it.
2. Who’s your top 5 best on the mic in Jim Crockett Promotions?
In no particular order, I’d go with Ole Anderson, Blackjack Mulligan, Masked Superstar, Jim Cornette and Ric Flair. There were so many unique characters in JCP, each with their own styles, it’s hard to narrow it to just 5. Honorable mention to Gary Hart, Arn Anderson and Ernie “The Cat” Ladd…
3. Top 5 Never to be Top Dog in WWF(E)?
I’d go with Roddy Piper, Curt Hennig, Matt Hardy, Greg Valentine and Wade Barrett.
4. Charlotte Flair or Alexa Bliss?
Nothing against Alexa who is growing on me more and more each week, but I always have to go with Charlotte on this one.
5. Who would you like to see in the 2018 Royal Rumble ?
Disco Inferno & Alex Wright, Michael Youngblood, CM Punk or maybe even Mr. Ethan Storm.
6. John Cena versus Undertaker at Wrestlemania? Do you think it’s going to happen?
The Magic Ball and all signs say that if it is to ever happen, it’s this year or never. I’ll say yes, it’s going to happen.
7. What Wrestler Do You Think Deserves A Stinkface From Rikishi The Most?
How about Vince Russo? He wrestled a few matches, right?
And there you go. I’m done for the day and ready to head out into the world. Thank you for reading. Have a great one and send me some feedback, aka questions, comments, etc. I’m down and gone. Love you – mean it. Take care my friends.
