Ultimate Wrestling Q&A
Charlotte Flair, Firefly Fun House Match & More
April 10, 2020
It’s time to do another Q&A. Thanks to Cheese, Mike Z., and Donnie for the questions. And now, let’s see if we can come up with a few answers. Let’s do this…
Do you think that having Charlotte Flair as the NXT Women’s Champion help NXT in the Wednesday night wars against AEW?
I don’t know if that’s the reason she won the championship, but it surely can’t hurt. Charlotte is a name, a draw, and one helluva performer. Having her as part of the Wednesday night brand can’t do anything but be a good thing.
Would you be interested in seeing Drew McIntyre defend his WWE Championship against Tyson Fury?
Not really. Let’s see Drew fight WWE superstars and current talents first and then, maybe down the road somewhere, Fury can have a shot. But the men who are here day in and day out deserve the first matches.
Do you think that the Boneyard Match was the Undertaker’s last big match and he’s ready for retirement?
Only The Undertaker and Vince know for sure, but if this does prove to be Taker’s last big match or even his last match period, it’s one hell of a good way to go out.
Who would you like to see in a Firefly Fun House match next (if they ever do another)?
Mick Foley has expressed interest and with his career and background, that could be interesting. How about Vince McMahon or HBK, Shawn Michaels? Even the Undertaker could be an interesting option for a future Fun House match against Bray. I don’t think they’ll ever do this again and it was probably just a one-shot, but those are some names that could be considered.
As expected, Jim Cornette didn’t like the Firefly Fun House match and says that wrestling is dead. Thoughts?
I love me some Corny and while I can see his point, I don’t necessarily agree about the Fun House match and wrestling being dead. So long as there are high school gyms and National Guard Armories and people living the dream and making those sacrifices, wrestling will never truly die. The Fun House match was different and I wouldn’t want to see it become a regular thing, but given the current situation and who created it, WWE, I can’t complain much either.
Triple H said in an interview that he’d still be an executive with WWE even if he hadn’t married Stephanie. Thoughts?
While it is true that he might eventually be an agent with the company or even a Pat Patterson level executive if he had not married Steph, there is no way in hell that he’d be where he is right now. HHH is delusional if he thinks otherwise.
Who would win a theoretical Brawl For All tournament using current wrestling superstars?
Brock Lesnar is probably the most legit guy in WWE right now so if there was another Brawl For All (and let’s pray that never happens), I think that “The Beast” would be the definite odds on favorite regardless of who else was part of the event.
Ric Flair has made comments that he would like to and could still wrestle in a Cinematic match, aka The Boneyard Match. Should WWE allow Flair to do so?
No! Flair should never step in the ring as a wrestler again for any reason. WWE should use him for appearances, the occasional promo and maybe a backstage skit or two, but so far as matches go, even taped and filmed movie-style matches, Flair’s days of getting physical are and should remain history.
Who were the three best “Authority Figures” and the three worst “Authority Figures” in WWE history not named McMahon?
In my opinion, the best was Eric Bischoff, William Regal, and Vickie Guerrero. The ones I liked the least were Johnny Ace, Mike Adamle, and the Anonymous Raw General Manager.
