Tossing Salt Presents:
Ultimate Wrestling Q&A
Mickie James, Dolph Ziggler, Ken Shamrock & More
August 12, 2020
As I sit here and wait for clothes to finish drying so I can go to bed, I decided to take a look into my inbox and see what’s going on. Cheese and Mikey J. sent me some questions. And so, instead of sleeping, I will answer because that’s what I do. My thanks for the questions. Now, are you ready? Let’s do this…
Dolph Ziggler says he wants to fight Kurt Angle in the RAW Underground. Thoughts?
If Kurt is willing, then he and Dolph should go for it. The structure and setting that is RAW Underground could be used, much as the Cinematic matches, to camouflage some weaknesses in wrestlers and give the WWE talent a whole new way to compete. Someone with a background like Angle’s would do well and as I said before, he and Dolph sounds like a good match to me.
Are you glad to see Mickie James back on WWE TV?
I am always glad to see Mickie, be it on WWE TV, in a music video, on Twitter, in concert, or for whatever reason. The woman is an exceptional performer and one of my long-time favorites (after Ivory of course).
The worst wrestling finisher of all time?
The Khali Chop, the Worm, The People’s Elbow, and Santino’s Cobra all immediately come to mind.
Jake “The Snake” Roberts versus Arn Anderson. Who wins?
While my personal preference would be “Double A”, he was never considered a top singles star. Jake would probably end up being the one to get his arm raised.
Would you like to see Ken Shamrock fight on Raw Underground?
If he was to come back to WWE, that would be the place to use him and have him perform, but for my own tastes, I’m not a Shamrock fan and have no desire to see him in WWE or wrestling anywhere for that matter.
Flair won the Championship 16 times. Bruno won the Championship twice & held it combined over 11 years. So I ask, which is the bigger accomplishment?
It’s like comparing apples to oranges because of different people in different territories. The NWA/WCW would never work with one champion for seven or eight years straight, mainly because of the nature of what the NWA was, an alliance of smaller territories from all over the world. The WWWF was different in so many ways and they didn’t mind Bruno as the top guy indefinitely. I think, because of the numerous promoters and politics involved, being the NWA Champion one time, much less sixteen times, would be the bigger deal. Bruno only had one person to worry about and that was Vince McMahon Sr. Both men are legends and icons in this business and would be on anyone’s list of Top 5 of all time, but I think the accolades of Flair shine just slightly brighter than those of Bruno.
