Tossing Salt Presents:
Ultimate Wrestling Q&A
Bobby Eaton, AEW & NJPW, Brad Maddox & More
January 11, 2020
Welcome to another spellbinding edition of the Ultimate Wrestling Q&A. I have several questions from The Cheese as well as a couple from Matt G. too. There is no time for chit chat. Let’s do this…
Thoughts on “Beautiful” Bobby Eaton?
Bobby is one of the most talented men to ever step foot inside a wrestling ring. Many have said that working with Eaton was like having a night off. Bobby was not a good speaker, but he didn’t have to be to get his message across. That’s what Cornette was for. Just a legendary and iconic performer in the ring and from all reports, one of the nicest and most sincere and decent people outside of it too. The first-round Hall of Fame wrestler by anyone’s standards.
Does Angelo “King Kong” Mosca belong in the WWE Hall of Fame?
Former Canadian Football League talent and member of the CFL Hall of Fame. Angelo Mosca worked all over the world, as a wrestler, announcer, scout, and trainer. He was nicknamed “Big Nasty” and the title definitely was an apt description for the wrestling legend. Does he belong in the WWE Hall of Fame? My vote would be yes.
As far as you know, do AEW and NJPW have any plans to start working together?
While Jericho and Jon Moxley still have dates scheduled to work with New Japan and I think that the Young Bucks may as well, there is no official partnership planned for AEW and NJPW nor does it look as if any talks or plans are taking place about one at the moment.
Why did AXS drop New Japan Pro Wrestling from its network?
AXS now owns Impact Wrestling and that is where their focus and priorities are at. NJPW most likely wasn’t making enough money for the Network to keep putting their attention that way so they decided to cut the strings and end the relationship.
Who’s the best announcer of the following: Bob Caudle, Gordon Solie, Marc Lourence or Lance Russell?
All had their strong points and all had their flaws, but every single one of these men had a unique talent that entertained the fans of their perspective territories. Who’s better than who? That I can not answer, but my own personal preference would be Bob Caudle. After all, I am from North Carolina and he was the voice for Jim Crockett Promotions and Mid-Atlantic Championship Wrestling.
Thoughts on Scott Steiner working with the NWA?
Steiner is a talented performer and a name that can draw fans and put butts in the seats so I’m happy to see him signing with the NWA. So long as Steiner stays professional and can perform in that ring, I can’t see any problems here.
Whatever happened to Brad Maddox? Do you think we’ll ever see him back in the WWE
Maddox kind of vanished after the whole sex-tape scandal with Paige broke out and was quietly released from the WWE after calling fans “cocky pricks” at a WWE House show and worked some independent promotions after that. As for now, I have no idea what Maddox is up to. He’s on Twitter but hasn’t posted in a while that I can tell. I don’t think he’ll be back in WWE again so long as Paige is still there and under contract. It’s alleged that he’s the one who released the videos that caused everyone so many headaches and if that’s true, the bridge with WWE has been burnt to the ground. He won’t be back.
And I guess that’s all for tonight. My thanks for reading. Any comments, thoughts or questions, please feel free and drop me a line. Until the next time, take care of yourself and stay safe. Don’t forget to support your local Indy wrestling. I’ll see you at the matches.
