Tossing Salt Presents:
Ultimate Wrestling Q&A
Charlotte Flair, The Dangerous Alliance, Ryback & More
April 18, 2021
It’s Sunday morning and you know what that means? I go back to work tomorrow. Yay for me. Let’s do the Ultimate Wrestling Q&A.
Does “The Dangerous Alliance” belong in the WWE Hall of Fame?
Look at this group. Rick Rude, Madusa, Steve Austin, Arn Anderson, Larry Zbyszko, and Bobby Eaton, all guided by Paul E. Dangerously, aka Paul Heyman. Every single member, with the exceptions of Heyman and Eaton, is already part of the WWE Hall of Fame, and I think it’s only a matter of time that Beautiful Bobby and Heyman join their former teammates. So does the Alliance belong as a unit and faction? They were only together for about a year and they weren’t pushed by then-WCW management nearly as strongly as they should have been, but I can see the WWE pulling this one out and inducting the Dangerous Alliance as the headliners at some point for their Hall of Fame. And if it does happen, I won’t object at all. It would be awesome and there’s not a single person in this group who isn’t deserving.
Does Charlotte Flair owe all her success in the WWE to nepotism?
While being the daughter of Ric Flair hasn’t hurt, I think putting in the hard work at the Performance Center, working her ass off training and learning her craft, and having consistently great matches again and again against a variety of opponents has helped quite a bit too. Her name got her in the door, but the work ethic and talent have kept her there and in a top spot. Charlotte earned her spot and that’s why she’s still there. ‘Nuff said!
Do you think WWE will pull a “Drake Maverick swerve” with any of the ten recently released WWE talents?
I’m not sure, but the backlash over the termination of Billie Kay makes me think that it’s possible. And I still want to see Bo Dallas as part of Bray Wyatt’s “family” so here’s hoping that can still happen. The way that the current Bray Wyatt & Alexis Bliss story is going, anything is possible.
Jimmy Valiant & Dusty Rhodes versus Charlie Brown & The Midnight Rider. Who wins?
I think we’d see Harley Race, the House of Humperdink, and Paul Jones, along with his army, all storm the ring and attack their rivals so of course, all the faces (Dusty, Valiant, Brown, and the Rider) would team up, joined by their associates, The Dirty Yellow Dog, Barry Windham, Tommy Rich, and the Mysterious Mr. R., and fight off their foes. The fan-favorites would clear the ring of the evil villain menaces and celebrate in the ring as the fans go crazy. The match would be ruled a no-contest and then the various masked men would all vanish to parts-unknown while Dusty, Valiant, Windham, and Rich would continue with their careers as top guys and wrestling legends.
Ryback recently asked fans what promotion that they’d like to see him return to in 2021. Where would you like to see the “Big Guy” make his return?
In his poll, the majority of the fans who responded said that they’d prefer to see him retire. In this case, I agree and feel that the majority rules. Bye Felica.
