Tossing Salt Presents:
August 3, 2018
I’ve been slack. I admit it. And the questions for my wrestling Q&A’s, as well as questions for several other pieces, have been filling up my e-mail (at Doug28352@yahoo.com) for the past several weeks. I need to get busy and play catch up and now, it shall begin. It’s time to talk pro wrestling. So are you ready? I said, “Are you ready?”. So now, for all seven of my regular readers, as well as the five or six who have heard me speaking over at SMF Cyberspace and want to learn more, let’s get ready to answer it (the questions). Lame, I know. The questions come from friends and readers. The answers are from me. Let’s do this…
How excited are you for the WWE’s all woman pay-per-view, Evolution?
It is long overdue, especially since the women were excluded from the Greatest Royal Rumble event, and I’m very excited to see this happen. The women in WWE, both past and present, are amazing talents and this is their time to shine. I’m extremely glad to see it.
Thoughts on the new Miz & Maryse reality show?
So far, so good. I’m not a big fan of reality shows in general, but Miz and Maryse have a natural charm and charisma that makes them fun to watch. So far, I’m enjoying this show a great deal.
Bayley and Sasha? Still friends or foes by the time Evolution get here?
I think it all comes down to if WWE decides between now and then to go or not go with the idea of Women’s Tag Team Titles. If it’s a go, then Sasha and Bayley will remain together as a team until the new champions are determined. If the WWE decides to hold off a bit for unveiling those new belts, then look for a big break-up right before the Evolution pay-per-view and the two “best friends” to have a match that tears the roof off the place.
Will James Ellsworth be back in WWE?
We have not seen the last of Mr. Ellsworth. The chinless one will be back, probably many times before all is said and done.
Bellas versus Team Bestie (Lita & Trish) at Evolution?
I don’t know, but I’d love to see it happen.
What past WWE Divas would you like to see at Evolution?
Ivory of course, but not in a wrestling role. She’s almost sixty. Did you know that? I didn’t, but damn she still looks great. In a wrestling / in-ring role, I’d like to see Molly Holly, Victoria and maybe Jackie Moore. Those three ladies can still go and it’d be great to see them have that one last big match (or in Victoria’s case, maybe a new deal and one more run) happen.
What’s your WrestleMania 35 dream main event?
Since it says “Dream main event”, how about The Undertaker versus Sting (finally)? Works for me.
Since SmackDown is absolutely LOADED with elite-level heels, who is the best of the bunch?
Smackdown has several great heels to be sure, but the best has to be The Miz. He’s not just the best, but also AWESOME! (I had to do it!)
What Will WWE Do To Revitalize Asuka As A Title Contender?
It’d be pretty simple actually. Just have her get pissed off and start kicking ass on everyone, be it friend or foe. Make her look like the NXT version of Asuka instead of the shadow of that character we’ve been seeing on the main roster and her reputation and image will end up repairing itself.
And there you go. I have eleven more questions to go, but I’ll save them for another edition, probably within the next couple of days. My thanks for reading this. Any questions, comments or suggesions welcome so give me some feedback and let me know what you think. And with that, I’m down and out of here. Until the next time, have a great one and I’ll see you at the matches.
