Ultimate Wrestling Q&A
Crockett Moments, Wobbly Walrus, Dustin Rhodes & More
September 13, 2020
Welcome to the Ultimate Wrestling Q&A. I’m your host with the most and it’s time to do the Q&A thing. I hope everyone is having a lovely and fantastic Sunday. Let’s do this…
What was one Crockett moment that made you go wow? Mine was either Tully slapping Baby Doll or Nikita clotheslining David Crockett.
Both of the moments you’ve mentioned are legendary and extremely memorable. Some of the ones that stand out to me were Abdullah the Butcher showing up and attacking Wahoo McDaniel, jabbing his head with the fork, and drawing blood, Flair coming back after being attacked by Dick Slater & Bob Orton and being forced to “retire”, but then he comes out of nowhere with a baseball bat and goes after both of them, and Blackjack Mulligan’s “Cousin Luke”, (Killer Tim Brooks) knocking out Ox Baker with his boot.
The better claw – Blackjack Mulligan or Baron Von Raschke?
Blackjack was an awesome big man and if I was ever in a bar fight, I’d want him to have my back, but the absolute master of and the best claw-master has to be the legendary Baron Von Raschke. Blackjack didn’t always use the claw to win and usually, the match would continue. But once Von Raschke locked that claw in, the match was over, as it should be.
Would you like to have seen Bobby Eaton & Brad Armstrong as a tag team? I think they would have been great.
These two men are arguably the best tag team wrestlers of their era and a team consisting of the two would be amazing to see. They would need a manager or mouth-piece since neither Bobby nor Brad was great talkers. But this team could work and if it had happened, they could have rivaled The Fantastics, The Rock & Roll Express, and Midnight Express.
Missy Hyatt versus Sunny (Tammy Sytch) in a bra & panties match. Who wins?
Twenty years ago, this would be fun and amazing to watch, but now, not so much. Missy is still cool as fuck and in great shape, but Tammy? Just say no to drugs and alcohol folks. Forget the bra & panties. Both ladies are comfortable in being scantily clad and in Tammy’s case, she really needs to keep them on. Did someone just fart? Missy would be professional and let the jail-Diva get the win. And then Missy would (hopefully) shoot and lay Sunny out with her Gucci handbag.
Who was/is the most unsafe wrestler in your opinion?
Ryback and Nia Jax are the first names that come to mind.
Thoughts on the new “special advisor” to the Firefly Funhouse, Wobbly Walrus?
Look at this crap. This is obviously a rib on Paul Heyman, but what the fuck? We’re looking for Alexa to show up as Sister Abigail or Bo Dallas to be a demented follower or hell, even have Abyss make a cameo, but we get a new, lame-ass puppet. Maybe Vince, the puppet-master-puppet, thinks it’s “good shit!”, but I think it’s stupid and moronic as hell.
Does Dustin Rhodes deserve at least ONE world title run?
I can’t see Dustin with a long run as a World Champion, but if Dustin was to capture the AEW World Championship for a week or two, I wouldn’t object at all. He’s a well-deserving legend and future Hall of Fame talent and adding a World Championship to his resume would make for a good wrestling moment.
