Tossing Salt Presents:
Ultimate Wrestling Q&A
Jeff Hardy, Brodie Lee, GLOW & More
August 4, 2020
It’s the day after Monday and guess what that means? It means I have questions sent to me by Jimmy J. for the Ultimate Wrestling Q&A and now, I’m going to answer them. Are you ready? Let’s do this…
Has anyone thought of AEW putting Vicki Guerrero with Sammy Guevara? Think of making Sammy almost like Latino Heat?
It wouldn’t work for the main reason you mentioned. Sammy Guevara is not Eddie Guerrero and his character is not a resurrected Eddie and no one would buy it as such. Vickie is better off doing her own thing with Nyla Rose and the women of AEW while Sammy is better off doing exactly what he’s been doing, being Sammy Guevara. I just can’t see a reason for them to be together at this point and time.
What was Jeff Hardy’s greatest match in TNA and why?
I didn’t watch much of TNA when Jeff was wrestling there so to identify his best match under the TNA banner, I can’t do it. It wasn’t the title loss to Sting. That’s for sure. I’ll go with the Final Deletion match involving he and Matt at the Hardy Compound.
What are your thoughts on Brodie Lee in AEW so far?
I guess it’s better than his WWE run thus far, but the character and push so far seem to be lacking. The whole Dark Order crap seems more like filler thus far and it doesn’t seem as Lee has found his niche yet. I’m still hopeful though that we’ll see Lee break out at some point and show the world what WWE never realized and what he’s capable of. It just hasn’t happened yet.
GLOW Original Sally the Farmer’s Daughter, Becky Mullen, passed away a few days ago. Did you watch GLOW and thoughts/memories of Sally and the other GLOW girls?
I did watch GLOW and it was entertaining to me, albeit a bit cheezy. I don’t remember much about Sally, but I do remember Hollywood, Mt. Fuji, and a few of the others. Just a good mixture of cornball comedy, ala Hee Haw, with some wrestling thrown in for good measure. As for Sally, she ended up owning most of the old videos and GLOW assets if I recall correctly. Hopefully, we’ll see the old shows and library eventually show up on the WWE Network so we can relive the memories and good times. One can only hope.
When asked about declining ratings for WWE, Ric Flair said that the WWE and Vince McMahon, will “bounce back bigger and better than ever a year from now!”. Thoughts?
Never count Vince out is all I can say to that. He’s bat-shit crazy at times and out of touch, but when backed into a corner, he always comes back fighting. ‘Nuff said!
Who was bigger? Sting or Hogan?
Hogan. I think he stood about 6’6 or 6’7 while Sting was only about 6’1 or 6’2. And yes, I’m being sarcastic, but my answer remains the same. Sting was a big name for WCW, but Hogan and Hulkamania transcended pro wrestling and was/is known all over the world, even by non-wrestling fans. I think that maybe The Rock and Steve Austin have passed Hulkamania and Hulk Hogan in terms of being wrestling’s biggest star ever, but poor Sting? He’s not even in the Top 5.
