Ultimate Wrestling Q&A
Pak Song, The Bullet Club, Trump in WWE HOF & More
January 8, 2021
It’s Friday and you know what that means. Let’s do the Ultimate Wrestling Q&A. And away we go.
Goldberg has challenged Drew McIntyre to a match at the Royal Rumble. Thoughts?
I can think of a million people that I’d rather see facing Drew than Bill Goldberg, but at least they’re doing it now and getting it over with rather than wasting a slot at Wrestlemania. The Rumble is about the Rumble match itself and this match is more of an afterthought. I just hope that Goldberg is able to last more than three minutes and one move and that the right person comes out on top. Note: It’s not Bill Goldberg.
Thoughts and memories of Pak Song?
This odd-looking Korean wrestler was big in the Florida and Texas territories and big in the mid-to-late ’70s. I never had the chance to see him wrestle, but I do remember him being one of Dusty Rhodes favorite foes in Florida. He was managed by Gary Hart and was also involved in feuds with Harley Race a few times as well. Not a big star, but a consistent name and player from the territorial days. He passed away in either 1980 or 1982.
Many people, including Mick Foley, are demanding that Vince McMahon remove Donald Trump from the WWE Hall of Fame. Do you agree? Thoughts?
Foley wants to remove Trump for political reasons, but he has no problem with a murderer (Jimmy Snuka), an alleged rapist (Rocky Johnson), a known homophobic and alleged pedophile (Jerry Lawler), racists (Hulk Hogan), wanna-be porn stars (Tammy Sytch), and others with screwed up lives like Scott Hall, Chyna, Ric Flair being there. I like Foley and respect him for his career and success, but he just needs to shut the hell up already.
Lacey Evans and Cardi B. exchanged words on Twitter. Thoughts?
It’s a work or at least would have been if the WAP-ho’ had been smart enough to play along. Or maybe Lacey really does want to bust her in the mouth? Whatever? I don’t give a damn about Cardi B. She’s a waste of human space and a piece of trash who makes Tammy Sytch look respectable. I don’t care.
The Bullet Club has reunited in AEW with Kenny Omega, The Good Brothers, and The Young Bucks together. Thoughts.
It was the biggest faction in wrestling since the days of the nWo and they dominated Japan for a pretty good while so this unification is probably a good thing. I’m interested in seeing where it goes and what happens next.
The Dusty Rhodes tag-team classic in NXT will be an all-women tournament. Thoughts.
More often than not these days, the women wrestlers are better than the men. I can understand why WWE/NXT decided to give this a shot and I’m sure that Dusty would be proud too if you will. It’ll be cool to see and I’m sure, be an excellent event.
And there you go. My thanks for reading. Comments, thoughts, or any questions you’d like to ask, feel free to drop me a line. Until the next time, take care of yourself and stay safe. Don’t forget to show some love and support for your local Independent wrestlers and promotions. I’ll see you at the matches.
