Tossing Salt Presents:
Ultimate Wrestling Q&A
Max Caster, Tony Khan, Samoa Joe & More
August 17, 2021
Are you ready? I said, ARE YOU READY? Let’s talk wrestling. It’s the Ultimate Wrestling Q&A and it starts right now.
So who is the better wrestler: Kenny Omega or Roman Reigns?
It’s a tough call because, to be honest, neither would be in my all-time top ten rankings, but both men are skilled in that ring and masters at what they do. Of the two, I think Roman is the better all-around performer of the two.
Thoughts on Max Caster and his recent controversial rap on AEW Dark?
I think Max said a few things he probably shouldn’t have, offended a few people, and now everyone got their feelings hurt over comments that wouldn’t have even raised an eyebrow ten years ago. It’s a bunch of craziness over nothing in my opinion. The powers-that-be at AEW had control over what was aired on their programming and should have caught anything before it aired. They didn’t do their jobs properly and now Caster is taking the fall from Tony Khan and AEW critics/fans. It’s much like Jim Cornette’s removal from the NWA a few years ago for making a tasteless joke that he’s used a thousand times before, but the editors of the show got offended after the fact and he lost his job. That looks as if it may be the same type of deal here. Just pure woken stupidity and nothing more.
As a viewer, what would you tell Tony Khan to improve AEW, if anything?
Add some consistency to the stories and quit having the same thing three matches in a row in terms of finishes, outside interference, distractions, etc. Get someone with a wrestling background to oversee the wrestling aspect of the shows and keep things in order, acting as a booker and coordinator. It would improve things a great deal in my opinion.
Who was the better partner for Ole Anderson: Gene or Arn?
No offense to Arn, but Ole and Gene were the real deal, the real Minnesota Wrecking Crew and few other teams even come close in comparison.
Hillbilly Jim versus Mad Dog Vachon. Who wins
Mad Dog Vachon. No question about it.
Do you think Samoa Joe will take the title off of Karrion Kross so he can transition to the main roster? If so, who could even hope to challenge Joe for the NXT championship?
At this point with all the craziness and chaos that is NXT, I think having Joe capture the title makes the most sense. As for who would be the right person to challenge Joe for the belt, how about Adam Cole baby!
Who do you like to see as the next champions for all the brands, besides the obvious ones? AEW (besides Hangman), NXT (besides Joe), Raw & Smackdown.
AEW’s current champion is Kenny Omega and I think seeing him drop the title to Bryan Danielson would be cool. On NXT, it’s Karrion Kross as the champ and if Joe’s not the next champion, go back to basics with Adam Cole. RAW has Bobby Lashley as the top guy and I think seeing The Miz find a way to steal the title and redeem himself would be good. As for Smackdown and Roman Reigns, how about a series of matches and an eventual loss to Cesaro.
And there you go. My thanks for reading. Any comments, thoughts, or questions to ask, just give me a shout. Until the next time, take care of yourself and stay safe. I’ll see you at the matches.
