Tossing Salt Presents:
Rey Mysterio, Tammy Sytch & More
September 23, 2018
It’s catch-up day here at the Salt Palace after a hellacious week, due to the antics of Hurricane Florence. Let’s start off with some Q&A about the world’s greatest sport, professional wrestling. These questions come from long time reader Daniel and the folks at the KoK. Let’s do this…
Has there ever been a finisher that no one has ever kicked out of?
How about the worm? Or the People’s Elbow? No, actually I can’t think of a finisher that is the ultimate finisher any more. Back in the day, finishers actually did their job and finished the matches, but now they’re all just transition moves leading to an epic finish and big climax. Hell, even the biggest finisher of all, Vince McMahon’s “You’re Fired!” just means that the person will be back next week to seek revenge.
They need girl referees for women matches – Agree?
A woman referee is fine so long as they’re able to do their job and work a match without botching it up. But the gender of the referee, specifically for a particular kind of match, would never work and is a dumb idea.
WWE is making a smart move by bring back Rey Mysterio?
Rey is a popular wrestler and draws in the Latino audience and his presence will probably help the WWE make lots of money so it’s probably a smart move. It’s not one that I would be making since I’ve never been a big of Mysterio and find him extremely over-rated, but I’m not the man at WWE who makes that decision. It’s probably best for business.
One word to describe “Hot Rod” Roddy Piper?
Which one has a better chance of happening at Wrestlemania? Cody versus Goldust or Shaq versus Big Show?
Cody is busy right now being the NWA World Champion and dazzling fans at ROH and at assorted shows across the nation so his presence at Wrestlemania, at least for this year, is highly unlikely. Shaq versus Big Show? No one wants to see this or cares, especially me, but if Shaq quits being an ass-clown and agress to do the right thing, make a lot of money and do the J.O.B., It’s most likely going to happen sooner rather than later.
Will we ever see heel Sasha again?
The Magic 8-Ball says “YES!”… and I agree.
Tammy Sytch is up for parole from her latest incarceration / vacation. How long do you think it will be before she’s in trouble with the law again?
Definitely less than six months. She’s a magnet for trouble and dumb decisions and will screw up at the first available opportunity.
Thoughts on Missy Hyatt?
The original “First Lady” and “Diva” or professional wrestling, she (and Baby Doll for that matter), don’t get nearly the recognition they deserve. Along with Eddie Gilbert, Missy was a force to be reckoned with in the early Memphis days and was a big part of helping make stars out of Rick Steiner, Buff Bagwell and Sting. She was a manager and commentator and was one of the first women to use sex as a weapon. She may get a lot of flack for some of her life decisions later in her life and career, but if not for Missy, there would never have been a Sunny, Elizabeth or Trish. She’ll never get it due to her reputation and decisions later in life, but she’s a true first ballot Hall of Famer for any company in wrestling and deserves credit for the walls she broke down and what she accomplished.
And there you go. Comments, thoughts and any questions are welcome and appreciated. Thank you for reading. And until the next time, which won’t be long, I’m out of here. Have a great one and support your local Indy wrestling events. Take care.
