Tossing Salt Presents:
Renee Young, Foley, HBK & More
September 13, 2018
Betcha can’t eat just one. Or answer just one if you will. I already did one wrestling Q&A earlier today, but as I sit here waiting for Hurricane Florence to show up, I came across plenty more questions waiting here in my “to do” folder. So what is a man to do? Looks like one more Q&A is going to happen. The questions come from Facebook, the KoK and Danny. And the answers, that’s all me. Let’s do this…
If you were a wrestler and needed a manager to boost your career, who would you pick?
If I was a wrestler, I’d need more than a manager to boost my career. I’d need a full fledged miracle. And in today’s business, there is one available, but he’s not a manager anymore. He’s an agent and an advocate and his name is Paul Heyman.
Thoughts on Renee Young joining the RAW announce team full time, replacing Jonathan Coachman.
Coachman kept having scheduling conflicts and has been moved to the Kickoff Shows and pay-per-view events. Renee, who’s been doing an excellent job so far, is available full time on each and every Monday night so it’s a win-win for all involved. I think it’s a good move by rhe WWE.
Mick Foley as the “guest referee for Roman versus Braun at Hell In A Cell. Good idea?
Well, he can’t take bumps so how will they manage to get everyone else involved and do a proper screw-job finish? I like Foley, but as the guest referee for this event? I have absolutely no interest in seeing that.
Trish vs Alexa has already been announced, what other matches would you like to see announced for Evolution?
Also announced has been Lita versus Mickie James. What I would like to see is Ronda Rousey versus either Kharma or Victoria, acting as Stephanie McMahon’s hit woman. I’d like to see a Battle Royal of former WWE Women such as Ivory, Molly and the lower level stars. And I’d like to see AJ Lee return and take Trish’s spot against Alexa. Let Trish fight Mickie James and Lita can be switched to fight Alicia Fox or Nia Jax.
What is something going on in the business today that you don’t like that you believe will eventually be done away with?
The scripted promos. They really, in my opinion, hurt the business and keep wrestlers from really growing into and developing their characters properly. I think, as HHH gains power, we’ll eventually go back to the use of bullet points for promos instead of tightly controlled speeches. Aside from that, everything seems mostly ok.
With his age do you think Vince will ever take another big bump to put someone else over.
It’s Vince McMahon so if I had to venture a guess, I would say yes…
If Shawn Michaels does return for one last match, who would you like to see him face?
The Undertaker makes the most sense, but HHH would be good too. Probably one of those two men would be the most likely, but if it was Kevin Owens or Bray Wyatt, I wouldn’t complain a bit either.
And there go you. My thanks for reading. Thoughts, questions and any comments welcome and appreciated. Until the next time, take care and I’ll catch you later. Take care.
