Tossing Salt Presents:
Ultimate Wrestling Q&A
Bryan Clark, Pete Rose, Bret Hart & More
February 10, 2020
Another edition of the Ultimate Wrestling Q&A, here for your reading enjoyment. The questions are courtesy of Cheese and Erick. The answers are from yours truly. Let’s get right to it, shall we? And away we go…
Braun Strowman is the new Intercontinental Champion. Thoughts?
This is Strowman’s first singles championship since joining the WWE and I guess it’s a good thing. I’m not thrilled with Braun as the Champion, but let’s be honest. Shinsuke’s reign was kind of boring and nothing was happening so a change was needed. Now we can see Braun as the hunted with Sami Zayn, Shinsuke, Cesaro, Dolph and the rest of the Smackdown roster all in hot pursuit. If nothing else, it’s changing things up a bit so no real complaints.
All-time, at what number do you place, Bret “The Hitman” Hart?
Bret is a good wrestler and one of the top stars of his era so I’d give him a good spot, but is he as good as he thinks he is? Of all time, he isn’t a Top Ten performer, but I think he would make the Top Twenty. How about “”15”.
Would you like to see Alex Riley return to WWE?
Alex was a good wrestler and also good at the announce table so if he’s wanting to come back and there is a good spot for him in WWE, bring him back. His only problem in his previous time with the company was heat with John Cena, but since Cena is no longer a full-time member of the roster, that shouldn’t be a problem anymore. I’d love to see Riley back to work a program with Miz and Morrison.
Thoughts on Wendi Richter?
She was the right person at the right time to be part of the Rock & Wrestling Connection and had a great look and character for the time. Her actual in-ring abilities weren’t all that great, but for the role she had in the whole movement, as the representative for Cyndi Lauper, she was perfect.
Should Lio Rush and Bobby Lashley be reunited?
It’s been mentioned on Twitter and so long as Rush has cleared up any heat he had in the RAW locker room, then I wouldn’t object. Lio was great in his role as the hype man for Lashley and I’d much rather see Lio come out with Lashley than Lana anytime. And while I’m thinking of it, I’d love to see a special appearance by Adrian English to be in Rusev’s corner in future matches against Lashley. Happy Rusev Day!
Golberg versus The Fiend in Saudi Arabia. Thoughts?
I guess Goldberg needs to wrestle someone and they do have a history so no complaints (so long as Goldberg doesn’t win the Universal Championship).
Bryan Clark, aka Adam Bomb, was arrested recently for drug charges. Thoughts?
I’ll start this off by saying that I consider Bryan Clark a friend. We used to communicate frequently back in the days of Yahoo Groups and I was able to speak to both he and tag partner Brian Adams quite regularly. We had a falling out of sorts a couple of years ago when Bryan didn’t like some comments I made in regards to the Concussion Lawsuit against the WWE that he, Billy Jack Haynes and many others had filed and dropped me as a friend. I haven’t spoken to him since, but I still have a lot of respect and love for the man. He’s a straight-up guy and I’ll always cherish the time I spent getting to know him and BA. As for these charges, I believe innocent until proven guilty and I know how the Federal Government likes to go after people through personal experience. Let the facts come out and whatever happens, happens. And regardless of how it all turns out, I’ll still respect the man and wish him the very best. Yesterday, today and forever, it’s all about Kronik! ‘Nuff said!
Does WWE Hall of Famer Pete Rose belong in the Baseball Hall of Fame?
More hits than anyone in history. Rose is “Mr. Baseball” and unless he’s included, no Baseball Hall of Fame is legit and valid. Pete Rose belongs in the MLB Hall of Fame. No doubt about it.
And I think I’m finally caught up. There may be a “Day of Dougie” coming up later tonight, but no promises. Netflix is looking mighty tempting as well. We’ll see. Thank you for reading. Any comments, thoughts or questions, drop me a line in the comments or else at Doug28352@yahoo.com. Follow me on Twitter at @Doug28352. And now I bid you a good night. Take care and I’ll see you at the matches.
