Tossing Salt Presents:
Ultimate Wrestling Q&A
David Arquette, Jimmy Havoc, Tag Team Appreciation Fallout & More
August 14, 2020
Greetings my friends. Welcome to the Ultimate Wrestling Q&A, the only wrestling Q&A where no question is off-limits. If I can answer it, I will certainly give it a try. Are you ready for a quick edition of the UQA? The questions are from The Cheese. Let’s do this…
What wrestler, past or present, do you think would dominate RAW Underground?
I think Vader would do well with RAW Underground. Anyone with an MMA background such as Dan Severn, Ken Shamrock, or Steve Blackman would do well. And Meng (Haku) would stand out and do well also.
David Arquette’s documentary, “You Can Not Kill David Arquette!” will be released on August 21, 2020. Are you excited for this film?
I am excited about it, yes. Arquette was a good guy and a huge wrestling fan who had the chance to live a dream and had a run as the WCW World Champion. For that, the fans have hated this man and proclaimed him as the worst thing to ever happen to pro wrestling. And now, he’s looking for redemption and went on a tour of Indy wrestling dates and shows and twenty-years later and they made a documentary about it. It’ll be coming out at the end of the month at Drive-Thru theatres and then going straight to video-on-demand. Yes, I want to see this documentary and I’m also looking forward to hearing people like Jim Cornette, Eric Bischoff, Arn Anderson, etc, give their take on the film as well. And while I’m at it, I think that Arquette and AEW should get together and let Arquette challenge Cody for the TNT Championship. That would be a great way to promote the film and give AEW a fun match for the fans.
Jimmy Havoc has been removed from the AEW roster page and seems to have been released. Thoughts?
With the whole “Speaking Out movement” allegations going on, is anyone surprised by this news? Tony Khan put on a public show about helping Havoc get counseling and being supportive and then when the dust has settled, quietly released Havoc from his contract. It’s not a big loss for AEW in my opinion and they have a bloated roster with too many names and not enough TV time so Khan is just clearing out the unnecessary distractions. It’s wrestling. It happens.
“Dr. D” David Schultz vs New Jack… a booked match that devolves into a shoot — who’ve you got?
With both men in their prime, my money would be on the good Doctor. If weapons were used, I think Jack might slice and dice Shultz a bit, but my money is still on Shultz. Jack is nuts and a dangerous person, but so was Shultz and he worked as a bounty hunter for a while, legit, so he’s used to dealing with lawless thugs.
Are you excited to see the Velveteen Dream back in NXT?
Honestly, I had forgotten about the Purple One. I guess that the allegations against him from the whole “Speaking Out” movement have been investigated and he’s been cleared of any wrongdoing. He’s a good wrestler and entertaining character so having him back in the world of NXT is probably a good thing. Welcome back Dream?
After the incident on the Tag Team Appreciation Night at last night’s AEW Dynamite, which match do you want to see more? FTR versus The Rock & Roll Express or Ricky Morton versus Tully Blanchard?
I’d be happy to see either, to be honest, and I hope AEW is considering both of these matches at some point. I’m sure that Tully can still do a match with Morton if necessary and with Shawn Spears as his second, it could make for a nice piece of nostalgia and make for a fun TV segment. As for the FTR versus The Rock & Roll Express, doesn’t AEW have a PPV coming up soon? This sounds like a great special attraction match to me. And this could all work as a way to bring FTR, Shawn Spears, and Cody together as a new version of (Not) The Horsemen. It connects the dots and makes the stars align. I hope AEW is thinking in the same direction.
