Tossing Salt Presents:
Ultimate Wrestling Q&A
Trish, Harley Race, K-Fed and More
August 6, 2019
These have been sitting in my inbox since last Friday, courtesy of “Cheese”. And now, better late than never, some answers, courtesy of me. Let’s do this.
Thoughts on the Maria Kanellis “pregnant champion” 24/7 Championship reign?
I think it was an interesting twist that gave Maria and Mike Kanellis a little push and helped establish Maria’s character as a total bitch. As you probably know, it came to an end last night as R-Truth “got his baby back” by pinning Mike after he had “pinned” his pregnant wife, Maria. The 24/7 Championship saga continues and is arguably the best thing on WWE TV right now.
Thoughts on the Trish Stratus versus Charlotte match at SummerSlam?
This should be an interesting match. I know that Trish looks awesome and it’s a dream match for many as the top woman from the Attitude Era faces the top woman of today. I know that Charlotte, Trish and Fit Finley have been working together to put this match together and it should be a fun and entertaining event.
Do you think that Goldberg will end up wrestling Dolph at SummerSlam?
As we found out last night at the end of RAW, it’s a big “Yes” for this and Dolph, he’s next!
Is CM Punk really the “Best In The World”?
One of the best talkers to be sure, but I was trying to think of an actual match where CM Punk stands out as a wrestler and I can’t really pin down one or two matches that stand out in my mind. Punk is damn good in the ring and when it comes to the “pipe-bomb” promos, few can do it better, but overall, the “best in the world” tag should be reserved for someone who can not only talk, but has unforgettable matches too. Ric Flair gets the nod for that, followed by HBK and Steve Austin.
Are you looking forward to the AEW debut on TNT in October?
I”m interested in seeing what AEW can do and I will be watching when I can. Yes.
Which show do you think will be more entertaining – SummerSlam or NXT Takeover?
I think NXT will probably be the better “wrestling” show, but SummerSlam will be longer and have more variety, comedy mixed with drama and be a damn good show as well. I plan on watching both.
Thoughts on 8-time NWA World Champion Harley Race?
A legend and icon and one of the legit toughest men ever to walk God’s green earth. I’ve been a fan of Race’s since the mid-70’s and stayed a fan until his passing a few days ago. When they talk about the very best in pro wrestling, Race’s name belongs at the top of the list. RIP Champ!
Will Kevin Federline (K-Fed) eventually be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame?
While K-Fed had a fun run back in the day with a win over John Cena and an alliance of sorts with Umaga, I don’t really think he’s Hall of Fame worthy for the WWE. But then again, Drew Carey and Snoop Dog are in and they did far less overall for WWE. If K-Fed ever becomes a big name again, I could see WWE capitalizing on his charm and the love of his fans and using him and maybe even giving him a Hall of Fame induction, but it’s not very likely.
Who do you think will be the headliners for the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2020 Induction ceremony?
My money would be on Kane, Undertaker and maybe Big Show as the top guys.
And there you go. My thanks for reading. I’m trying to get caught up and give me a few days and it will happen. Any comments, thoughts or questions, feel free to drop me a line and holla. Until the next time, take care and I’ll see you at the matches.
