Tossing Salt Presents:
Jericho, AEW, Billy Jack Haynes, Eva Marie & More
January 11, 2019
Not much time this morning, but always time enough to sneak in a little Q&A about the world’s greatest sport. The questions are from Matt and Jesse. And I’ve got all the answers. Let’s do this…
Do you think that Vince McMahon is PO’ed at Chris Jericho for signing with AEW?
According to Chris Jericho, he spoke to Vince McMahon before signing with AEW so Vince was aware and knew of Jericho’s plans. And while Vince wasn’t happy, he knows it’s just business and Jericho is doing what he feels is best for the business and for Chris Jericho. If Jericho went back to WWE right now, he’d be lost in the shuffle and just one more face in the crowd. With AEW, he’s that big name that they need and can build around, the Hulk Hogan to their WCW. Vince most likely wished him well and assured him that there will always be a place for him and that it will always be WWE is Jericho!
Any free agents or Indy wrestlers that you feel AEW should take a look at?
Most of the best big named talent is signed up and under contract to others or else AEW is already talking to them, but I think AEW should take a look at some local guys from here in Carolina. Veteran Ethan Storm and partner Tazz Jackson, aka Atlantic Coast Destruction Crew (AC/DC) and a young man who goes by the name “Carolina Kidd” instantly come to mind. And for good hands that are getting better all the time, Brad Branson & Derk Douglas, aka BD Productions. Yes, all of these men are friends of mine, but all of these men have skills and talent inside that squared circle and would be a strong asset to any wrestling company. And while they’re at it, go lure Chris Steele, of the legendary “Main Attraction” out of retirement. He’s another that would be a great addition to any wrestling company.
Thoughts on Billy Jack Haynes and his recent claims to have witnessed a murder in AK?
If it’s Billy Jack Haynes, he’s freakin’ crazy. This most recent thing is that he allegedly witnessed a murder or something like that in Arkansas and the Clintons (Bill & Hillary) are involved and he made a promise to a family. Hell, I don’t know. When he starts talking, I automatically start hearing a cuckoo clock going off in my head. He’s nuts! Don’t do drugs kids or else this is what happens. Look it all up on YouTube if you care to hear this lunatic’s ramblings, but myself, I don’t care.
What are some different Brock Lesnar matches you’d like to see?
How about Brock versus Bray Wyatt? Brock versus Cesaro? Brock versus Sheamus? Brock versus Floyd Mayweather? I don’t like Brock being the Universal Champion because it’s not fair to the title or the fans, but I don’t mind watching him wrestle against good opponents. The McMahons promised up fresh matches so why not Brock against any of these people. It’d all be fun to see.
Nick Bockwinkle versus Harley Race, both in their prime. Who wins?
With these two greats, a sixty minute draw is the only way to go.
Do you think we’ll ever see Eva Marie back in the WWE?
The red haired one is going to be a contestant on the new season of Big Brother so she’s making a name for herself. If her career outside of wrestling takes off, I could see the WWE bringing her back if she’s available and interested in doing something. She has expressed interest as well so it could happen. I hope it doesn’t, but anything is possible.
And there you go. My thanks for reading. Comments, thoughts and any questions are welcome and appreciated. Until the next time, take care and I’ll see you on the flip side. Have a great one.
