Ultimate Wrestling Q&A
Royal Rumble, Gillberg, Sister Abigail & More
January 23, 2021
I’ve fallen and I can’t get up. No, I’ve just fallen behind with the Q&A’s, but I can still get up. I’ll probably fall over after a few minutes due to the bad feet and stuff, plus being drunk. No, I’m not drunk (yet). Let’s do a new edition of the Ultimate Wrestling Q&A. And away we go.
Who is your favorite to win the Royal Rumble matches, men and women’s?
For the men, my personal favorites are Cesaro or (if he returns), Brock Lesnar. As for the women, I’ll put my money on Shayna Baszler. I just have a feeling in my tum-tum. Yes, I am watching Simon Miller as I’m typing this.
What would have happened if Sid had not been fired from WCW following the 1993 “scissors incident” with Arn Anderson?
Sid would have faced Vader at Starcade, the match which looks interesting on paper, but would most likely be a stinker. Sid would have won the WCW title and Vader would have left to go to the WWF. Then Ric Flair would come to the main event, feud with Sid, and recapture his title to be the new champ. Sid would have then flaked out, left WCW to go to the WWF, as he did anyways, and hopefully would vanish forever after a softball incident with a squirrel and a windshield cleaning thingy.
Would Rosemary have been a better Sister Abigail than Alexa Bliss?
So far, Alexa has done a great job in this role, but let’s be honest. One of the best things about Bliss being the beloved Sister is that she was one of the least likely to be involved with Bray Wyatt. It was a shock and great change of character for the esteemed performer. Rosemary would be okay I guess, but she’s better as Rosemary. Too obvious a choice in my opinion.
Chris Jericho & Kane versus Baron Von Raschke & Greg Valentine. Who wins?
An interesting mix of styles and it would be a fun match to see. Jericho and Kane are better athletes, better performers, and better entertainers, but I think Valentine and The Baron are better professional wrestlers. The Baron and the Claw would take a surprise win here.
Better finisher – DDP’s Diamond Cutter or Randy Orton’s RKO?
They’re the same move, but with different names. Randy has shown more ways of hitting the move and is crisper and better overall than DDP. Orton and the RKO get the nod here for me.
How come we never got a match between CM Punk and Kevin Nash back in 2011?
Nash was deemed unable to wrestle by the WWE medical officials and couldn’t get clearance to perform so the feud was dropped after Nash was allowed to get a few shots on Punk and make him look bad, but Punk was never allowed to get retribution.
Does Gillberg belong in the WWE Hall of Fame?
Yes, yes, a million times yes.
Other than The Rock, who would you consider the biggest household name ever to come out of Pro Wrestling?
Easy one here. All together kids. Hulk Hogan!
Three Minute Warning versus The Usos. Who wins?
This could be a match of epic quality and brutality. Or it could be a stinker although that’s highly unlikely considering the talent of the four family members of current WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns. Three Minute Warning was highly under-appreciated and never got the credit they were due. This match though? The Usos would win.
And there you go. My thanks for reading. Comments, thoughts, and any questions are welcome. Until the next time, take care and I’ll see you again very soon. Be safe and I’ll see you at the matches.
