Tossing Salt Presents:
Ultimate Wrestling Q&A
Brodie Lee, AEW, Sting & More
December 31, 2020
Happy New Year’s Eve, my friends. This past year has been a rough one in so many ways, but here’s to 2021 and what lies ahead. The future is bright and let’s keep rocking. Let’s do that Ultimate Wrestling Q&A thing.
Allegedly, the plan for AEW and Sting is to use Sting in “cinematic matches”. Is this a good idea?
While I can see Sting taking part in an occasional tag match, wrestling full time and regular matches would not work well for a 61-year-old man, no matter how good a shape he appears to be. Cinematic matches were never really an option in the past, but now that they are, it’s probably the best option available for someone of Sting’s age. Great matches, but less chance of injury.
Should WWE have done the “10 Bell Salute” for Brodie Lee at the start of RAW Monday night?
I think WWE did the appropriate tribute with the graphic at the start of the show and the numerous references and small tributes to Lee all during the show by the wrestlers. Lee’s presence was felt all throughout the show and they showed love and respect while leaving AEW, the company where Lee was actually working, to do the big tribute. Tributes and memories of Lee and his legacy were well done by both companies.
With only one month to go until the Rumble, it’s refreshing to see that it’s unpredictable. Who you got winning men and women’s Royal Rumble matches?
For the Women’s Rumble match, I would go with either a returning Ronda Rousey or maybe Mickie James. As for the men’s Rumble match, I want to say Lars Sullivan, but I can’t see Vince and company having faith in Sullivan to do a Wrestlemania. Let’s go with Daniel Bryan to win.
Thoughts on the AEW Tribute show to Brodie Lee last night?
An incredible show that made my allergies act up several times. Well done by AEW and much love and condolences to the family of Brodie Lee.
The greatest tag team of all time is?
It could be the Road Warriors. It could be the Midnight Express. It could be the Hart Foundation. It could be the Rock & Roll Express. It could be FTR. It could be Brody & Hansen. It could be BD Productions. It could be the Atlantic Coast Destruction Crew. It could be all about Kronik. It could be The Mulkey Brothers. Okay, forget that last one. I liked Bill & Randy Mulkey, but they’re not in my personal top ten, or anyone’s for that matter. It’s all speculation and what a person looks for and likes in a tag team that determines this answer. For me though, it will always be The Minnesota Wrecking Crew, Ole & Gene Anderson.
Is it possible that Jim Cornette could actually sit at a table with Vince Russo and actually try to act civilized and talk about his problems with Russo?
He probably could, but why would he want to? And who would want to see him do that? I’d rather see him pop Russo upside the head with a tennis racket or ten.
Erick Rowan appeared on AEW Dynamite. Thoughts?
I’m glad to see Rowan, or should I say Erick Redbeard, there and now part of AEW. He’s a good talent and I think he can be a good fit as part of that company, maybe even taking over where his partner/brother left off and help to build and guide the Dark Order to relevance. I hate that it took a sad event such as this to bring him aboard, but now that he’s there, I hope that Rowan and AEW make the most of the opportunity.
And there you go. My thanks for reading. Any comments, thoughts, or questions you’d like to see answered, just give me a shout and we can make it happen. Take care of yourself, stay safe, and have a Happy New Year. I’ll see you at the matches on the other side.
