Tossing Salt Presents:
Ultimate Wrestling Q&A
Batista, Trevor Murdoch, Murphy & More
September 2, 2021
It’s Thursday night. Are you ready to talk pro wrestling? It’s the Ultimate Wrestling Q&A. Let’s do this.
Do you think Batista will ever be All Elite?
Batista is getting up there in years and has a good thing going right now in Hollywood. While I can never say never about anything especially in the world of pro wrestling, I think we’ll see Hulk Hogan, Vince Russo, and Shane McMahon being all elite long before we see Batista making his debut there. I just don’t feel it at all.
Do you believe MJF has the potential to be the second coming of Ric Flair?
I think MJF has the skills and talent to be the first MJF and make an impact as a great heel, a good talker, and a character that the fans love to hate, but there is only one Ric Flair and that’s all that there ever will be. Diamonds are forever and so is the Nature Boy.
So since Bryan Danielson is coming to AEW. Does this mean the Bella twins are coming too?
The Bellas are WWE loyalists and are making a great deal of money in WWE-related television with the marketing of that company behind them in reality TV, their own brewery, and many other projects. If WWE was to be sold or Vince McMahon was to give up control, maybe the Bella Twins would bail, but so long as Vince is there, I think they will be also.
Does CM Punk’s debut/return feel forced?
Nope. It feels like the most natural thing in the world, a true combination of the right time, the right place, and fate.
Thoughts on Trevor Murdoch as the new NWA World Champion?
I was surprised to see Trevor win the belt at NWA 73, but I shouldn’t have been. He’s as old-school wrestling as they come and as a star pupil of the toughest man on God’s green earth, 8-time NWA World Champion Harley Race, he’s just carrying on Race’s legacy. He was destined to be the NWA World Champion and I’m very happy for Murdoch to have this opportunity.
Buddy Matthews, aka Buddy Murphy, is now a free agent. Where would you like to see him wrestle next?
I’d like to see him back in WWE as a top guy, but if that’s not in the cards, a yop level match and feud with CM Punk, Kenny Omega, or even Christian in AEW would be very cool and fun to see.
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.
