Tossing Salt Presents:
Lars Sullivan, Briscoes, AJ Lee & More
December 1, 2018
It’s the wrestling Q&A thing. Thanks to Matt for sending me these gems. Let’s do it…
Would you prefer to see Lars Sullivan go to RAW or Smackdown when he debuts on the main roster? Who would you like to see him wrestle against?
Lars Sullivan is a huge monster of a man and regardless of which show he ends up on, I think he’s going to do very well in WWE. Of the two brands, I think I’d rather see him on Smackdown Live just because RAW already has a resident monster in Braun Strowman, not to mention the AOP, Bray Wyatt and Drew McIntyre. Sullivan would just be another monster among monster there. While Smackdown too has it’s share of monsters in Big Show, Luke Harper & Erick Rowan, the latter two are currently out of action due to injury and Big Show is more of a part-timer these days than anything else. I’m afraid that Sullivan is going to be lost in the shuffle regardless of which brand he’s placed, but I think he’ll stand out better over on Smackdown than RAW. As for who I want to see him wrestle, any of the guys I’ve mentioned so far would work for me.
Were you surprised to see The Big Show and The Bar split up?
The direction of the wind changed and so did Big Show, going from a heel now to a face, or it is from a face to a heel? With Show, you can never tell, but no, Im not surprised that he and the team of Sheamus & Cesaro have broken up. It was never really explained why Show was with the Bar anyways so why should we care that they’re not together now? Simple. We shouldn’t.
Do you expect to see any crossovers between the XFL and the WWE once the XFL gets up and running?
Vince said that the XFL and the WWE will be kept apart as totally different businesses and there will not be any kind of crossovers, but it’s Vince and he won’t be able to help himself. He might hold out for a year or so, but when all is said and done, there will be some cross-promotion between the two brands. Believe that!
How do you think that Mark & Jay, the Briscoe Brothers, would do in WWE?
Mark & Jay, ROH Tag Team Legends, are far better staying with ROH Wrestling than going to the WWE. I expect that if they were to go to WWE, their fates might strongly resemble that of Gallows & Anderson, a brief kind of push, but mostly doing jobs and being buried. HHH could, I believe, use the Briscoes and make them the top tag team in NXT no problems, but once they got on the main roster, Vince wouldn’t know what to do with them and they’d be buried faster than Enzo Amore’s rap career.
Do you think we will ever see AJ Lee back wrestling in a WWE ring?
I think that before all is said and done, AJ will be back in the WWE as one of the top women in the Women’s Division. It’s just a gut feeling, but I think it will happen eventually. Whether or not her husband, CM Punk, will be a part of the deal is another question, but I think AJ still has the fire and desire and might be willing to do it and take a crack at WWE one more time.
And that’s all. Questions, comments and thoughts welcome. Until the next time, take care. Have a great night.
