Tossing Salt Presents:
Ultimate Wrestling Q&A
Fact or Fiction, NXT Takeover, Evolution & More
June 11, 2020
It’s the Ultimate Wrestling Q&A. The questions come from my Facebook timeline and from loyal reader and all-around good egg, Cheese. Let’s do this…
What is your Mt. Rushmore of wrestling referees?
The referees are often the forgotten men of the wrestling world, but a good referee is essential to a great match. My Mt. Rushmore of referees would be Tommy Young, Charles Robinson, Earl Hebner & the late, great Brian Hildebrand, aka Mark Curtis.
What is your Mt. Rushmore of masked wrestlers?
Mr. Wrestling II, La Parka, Masked Superstar, and The Assassin.
Would you like to see a feud between Drew McIntyre and Jinder Mahal?
Both men are in great shape, big and solid in the ring, and they have a history as friends and partners. I think a feud between these two men, especially if there was some way to bring back and incorporate Heath Slater into the situation, would be awesome to see.
Why don’t you do the Wrestling Fact or Fiction anymore?
To be honest, I quit doing it because 411mania.com and Jake Chambers, the man behind it at that site, quit doing it. I was very open that I used their statements and format and added my own answers to make it my own. For some reason, they quit doing it over at that site and since I didn’t have anything to comment on, so did I. I’d love to start back doing the FoF columns again and it’d be fun to have a partner-in-crime to answer the statements and agree or disagree as a counter to my own comments, much like I once did with the great Russell Jackson back when we were writing for Wrestle-Zone.co.UK. It’s time-consuming though and I’m already stretched for time as it is with my job, my volunteer work, the site, and attempts to have a life. I should give thoughts to bringing it back, be it with or without the help from 411mania. I’ll think about it and if any readers are interested in maybe co-hosting and offering some alternative opinions to wrestling statements, give me a shout. We’ll see where it goes from here.
Thoughts on NXT Takeover: In Your House?
It was a good and solid show and I enjoyed the little moments of nostalgia mixed with the great action and hard work from all the NXT performers. Cole versus Dream was good and the ladies killed it in the main event. I wasn’t so hot on the Balor match as his character has really cooled off over the past few months, but no complaints. Once again, WWE delivered as they always seem to do at the Takeover Events.
If you were told to pick ten wrestlers to go on Family Feud in a special WWE versus AEW edition, who would you pick for each team?
I’d pick Edge, Asuka, Sasha Banks, R-Truth & Baron Corbin to represent the WWE. For the AEW team, I’d have Chris Jericho, Cody, Brandi Rhodes, Arn Anderson & Sammy Guevera as my representatives.
Would you like a see a second Evolution (All Women) pay-per-view by WWE?
And there you go. My thanks for reading. Any comments, thoughts, or questions, please feel free and drop me a line. Until the next time, stay safe and watch out for the crazies. Take care and I’ll see you at the matches.
