Tossing Salt Presents:
Ultimate Wrestling Q&A
Roman Reigns, Greatest WWE Champion, Zelina Vega & More
August 29, 2020
It’s the Ultimate Wrestling Q&A. I woke up and found these questions in my inbox. I thought about saving them for later, but what the hell. I can’t sleep anyways. Let’s do this…
Are you glad to see Sami Zayn back in WWE?
Always. Sami is a great talker and always adds to any story he’s a part of, plus he still has his Intercontinental Championship title so we can get some good Sami versus Hardy and Sami versus AJ action to determine who is the real IC Champion. Sounds good to me.
Roman Reigns a Paul Heyman guy? Really?
Based on the ending of Smackdown last night, it sure seems that way. It’s a good match and I’m actually intrigued and excited to see how this plays out.
Who is the greatest WWE Champion of all time?
WWE officially branded itself as “WWE” in 2011 so only champions since the change of name would be counted as “WWE Champions” and up for consideration. Of the options, I think it comes down to John Cena, Brock Lesnar, and CM Punk as the best of the best. Punk was champion for the longest amount of time, but never really got that championship push. So that leaves Cena and Brock. No offense to John, but of the two, I would definitely consider Brock Lesnar as the better champion.
Moxley or MJF?
On the mic, it’s MJF. In the ring, it’s Moxley. And at their upcoming match at All Out, I haven’t made my decision yet. Look for my prediction column up a few days before the All Out pay-per-view. I’ll make my decision then.
Would you like to see Erick Rowan join AEW and the Dark Order?
At some point, it could be cool, but for the time being, I think that the Brodie Lee character and the Erick Redbeard character should be kept as far apart as possible and should not be in the same company.
Do you think AEW could hold its own on a three hour Monday night?
Maybe for a while, but the WWE machine would eventually find a way and could cause the AEW promotion some serious hurt. Better to let each promotion have their own nights and allow the fans to enjoy both companies instead of making them choose. As for three hours, that’s too long for any show, be it RAW or Dynamite. Two hours would be better for RAW and it’s where AEW should try to stay.
Is CM Punk really “retired”? Would you like to see him in AEW?
Unless they’re crippled or dead, no one in wrestling is really retired. They’re just on hiatus until the next opportunity comes along. And as for AEW, if they want Punk and he wants to be there, good for both parties. I wouldn’t mind seeing it, but personally, I’d prefer to see him in WWE just because I feel he still has something left to prove there to his critics and WWE management.
Ric Flair recently said that Zelina Vega is the best manager currently in wrestling. Thoughts?
Although MVP might be trying to give her a run for her money in WWE-land and Lana might object as well, I have no arguments about Flair’s comment. Vega is an old-school style manager in the manner of Woman or Sherri Martel in that she looks hot, but will definitely get involved in a match as well and not just be eye-candy. She can talk and get physical, something most modern-day managers seem to have forgotten about. Now if you want to expand the list and competition to other companies as well, Tully Blanchard & Taz might object and hell, even Vickie Guerrero might have an argument as well, but day in and day out, Zelina is the most well-rounded and best as a manager for a top wrestling company. At least I think so.
And with that, I bring this to an end. Thanks for reading.
