Ultimate Wrestling Q&A
Jay Lethal, The Marine, Bianca Belair & More
December 13, 2020
Let’s talk wrestling. It’s the Ultimate Wrestling Q&A and it starts right now.
Why hasn’t WWE signed Jay Lethal yet? Do you think Lethal could be a top star for WWE or AEW?
Lethal is currently under contract with Ring of Honor, but yes, I do think he would be an excellent pick for either AEW or WWE to add to their roster if the opportunity was to come up. I’m not sure about this, but I believe he has been offered WWE contracts in the past and decided against working there. I’m not sure why it hasn’t happened, but so long as his health holds up, I’d love to see him have a run in one of the bigger companies at some point.
Does Tony Lister (Zeus) belong in the WWE Hall of Fame?
Prayers and condolences to the friends and family of Lister, who passed away earlier this week. Is he worthy of being in the WWE Hall of Fame? For his work with Hogan and Savage at Summerslam, as well as his appearances in WCW, I would say a definite yes.
War Games: The Inner Circle (Jericho, MJF, Jake Hager, Sammy, Wardlow) w/ Santana & Ortiz versus The Dangerous Alliance (Rude, Austin, Eaton, Arn, Zbyszko) w/ Paul E. Dangerously & Madusa.
Talk about a confusing cluster of legends and future-legends that would reek of awesomeness, this would be an amazing contrast of styles and one hell of a match. As for who wins, with all due respect to the AEW faction, this one goes to the old guys from WCW.
Who should take over The Marine movie franchise from The Miz?
I’ve heard Shawn Michael’s name mentioned and that would be okay, but I’d rather see someone a bit younger to help keep the franchise for WWE Films going. Some have mentioned Lacey Evans and that makes sense, given her military background. But for some reason, either Ricochet or Dominik Mysterio were the first names that came to my mind when I saw this question. Or hell, use R-Truth. He’s already done everything else in the WWE so why not movies too.
Would you be interested in seeing a documentary about The Fabulous Moolah?
I think, if it’s honest, that would be very interesting viewing. Yes.
How would you book Hulk Hogan for one last match?
I wouldn’t. Hogan isn’t in the physical shape to do a boot or leg drop and has no business doing any kind of match or physical activity inside a wrestling ring. But if he wanted one last moment in the ring to do his thing and say goodbye, I’d have him come out at Wrestlemania. He can be the “host” again or just cutting a promo about something. Have a major heel or group of heels, maybe Retribution or King Corbin, come out and interrupt and tell him to “leave their ring”. He refuses and they go after him and he manages to clear the ring and they bail. He poses and gets his moment and Hulkamania is given a final farewell. And there you go.
Thoughts on Bianca Belair?
She’s a good wrestler and shows some charisma, but I hate that damn pigtail of hers that she’s constantly flipping around. Why hasn’t a heel used it to choke her yet or just jerked her down by such an obvious target? She’s a talented performer with a big future, but damn it, do something with that damn hair.
Why was Jimmy Snuka never WWF Champion?
Snuka was a top star for the NWA and WWF, but let’s be honest here. He was a loose cannon, functionally illiterate, couldn’t talk, and had the baggage of the dead girlfriend hanging over him. I think the real question was, how did he manage to have the success he did have with all of those strikes against him?
And I guess it’s time to stop here. My thanks for reading. Any comments, thoughts, or questions you’d like to see answered, give me a shout, and let’s talk. Until the next time, stay safe and watch out for the crazies. I’ll see you at the matches. Take care.
