Ultimate Wrestling Q&A
Miro vs Cornette, Great Muta, New Jack & More
March 15, 2021
Good morning. It’s Monday. Just shoot me now. Let’s do this.
Miro, Kip Sabian, and Penelope Ford recently called out Jim Cornette for comments he made about Penelope on his show. Thoughts?
Cornette said that Penelope’s character was a slutty girlfriend and let’s be honest. Look at her character and the history with Joey Janela, among others. He’s not wrong. And Miro, the former Rusev, a man whose wife was regularly making out with and married another man on national TV less than a year ago, freaked out. And Kip Sabian freaked out. And Penelope freaked out. And now, it’s on. Cornette replied but says he’s saving his rebuttal for his podcast this week. I can see Miro, Kip, and Penelope not liking Jim’s comments about their characters and maybe even taking it personally, but this is a battle they don’t want to have. Jim Cornette likes to poke the bears and instigate, but his over-the-top approach is more for entertainment purposes than anything personal. Kip and Penelope have made it personal. It’ll be interesting to see where this goes, but I don’t think it will be good for the AEW stars. It won’t be good at all.
I really hope AEW signs Ryback. He’s one of the best wrestlers in the business and I know he’s got a lot left in the tank!
I think you need to lay off the sauce before sending in questions. Ryback is a clumsy worker (ask CM Punk) and pretty much sucks in and out of the ring. If AEW is smart, they’ll stay as far away from Ryback as possible.
Who should be next in line to take the tag titles off The Young Bucks?
I think The Young Bucks facing the revitalized FTR, along with their new running buddies of Tully, Spears, Wardlow & MJF, has a nice sound to it.
Allegedly, Impact Wrestling has contacted The Great Muta and Pro Wrestling Noah about Mutoh coming to Impact and wrestling Kenny Omega. Would you like to see this match?
Mutoh isn’t what he used to be, but he’s still a legit legend and can still go in that ring better than most performers half his age. Would I like to see Mutoh face Omega? You betcha!
New Jack has expressed interest in joining AEW. Thoughts?
Look at what I said about Ryback. That goes double for New Jack. If AEW is smart, they’ll avoid this guy and stay as far away from him as possible.
Bad News Brown vs Ahmed Johnson. Who wins?
In a match, Ahmed in his prime would get the win because of the insistence of the promoters, but if we got the Ahmed that showed up a few years later in WCW as “Big T”, Brown would get the win. And in a legit, shoot fight situation, it’s all Brown each and every time.
And there you go. My thanks for reading. Comments, thoughts, and any questions are welcome and appreciated. Until the next time, take care of yourself and stay safe. I’ll see you at the matches.
