Tossing Salt Presents:
Ultimate Wrestling Q&A
The Fiend, Royal Rumble, Hall of Fame and More
December 1, 2019
The incomparable Jay from CT sent a few questions, some wrestling related and some, not quite, but it’s all good. I always say that anything goes. And with that, let’s go do this. Woo woo woo – you know it!
1.) Overall, up until now do you think AEW or NXT has been better?
NXT is by far the better show in my opinion. AEW has some good, some bad and you never know quite what to expect or who the players will be. It’s inconsistent and that hurts the shows and product. NXT is more organized and the production values are heads and tails above AEW. AEW has some great stuff at times, but they seem to be all over the place far too often for my taste.
2.) If you had to take the Pats or “The Field” to win the Superbowl this year which would you take?
No Pats. They’ve had their time in the sun and now, I’d rather see some other team have a chance and spend some time at the top for a bit.
3.) And if the Pats win this year again do you think Brady finally will just retire on top?
If he gets another ring and they win, it’ll be time to call it a day. I think Brady will finally retire, going out on top and moving to a position with the coaching staff.
4.) Could you see The Fiend as champion still by Mania?
It’s possible, but I don’t think so. I expect that by the time Mania rolls around, we’ll see someone else with the big belt and the Fiend moving off into a different direction.
5.) Favorite “side” of Thanksgiving Dinner? For me it’s the cranberry sauce and biscuits.
Does the stuffing count as a side? My Mom makes great homemade stuffing and while most of the other cooking responsibilities fall on me now, that’s her thing and it’s always one of the best parts of the meal. And I love me some baked beans as well. I make those and dare I say it, with all apologies to the Miz, but they are… (wait for it)… AWESOME!
6.) Who do you think WWE will have win the Rumble in 2020 if you had to choose now?
Roman Reigns seems to have lost a bit of his fire and push as of late so he’s a strong possibility. A surprise entry and win by CM Punk would be fun to see, but that’s not really all that likely. I think I’ll just play it safe and say Roman Reigns.
7) With Christmas and New Years on a Wednesday will AEW and NXT still air?
If they do, it will be taped editions and “Live” shows. I think that they will both air in their regular time-slots, but I don’t think we’ll get a live event, but more likely, a “Best Of” type of program.
8.) Do you expect the 2020 ppv calendar for WWE to be very similar to 2019?
If you mean a confusing mess, then the answer is yes, I do feel that it will be very much similar.
9) Who do you think will headline the HOF in 2020?
Since they’re in Florida, I think that the nWo is a strong possibility. The Undertaker is a strong option as well. I’m not really sure who the headliners will be, but so long as Jim Cornette and the Midnight Express get their rightful induction and Lisa Marie Varon (Victoria) gets her spot, I’ll be happy.
And there you go. My thanks to Jay from CT for the questions. Any comments, thoughts or questions of your own, drop me a line and let’s chat. Follow me on Twitter at @Doug28352. And with that, I’m out of here. Have a great one and I’ll see you at the matches. Take care.
