Tossing Salt Presents:
Ultimate Wrestling Q&A
Matt Hardy, Alexa Bliss, Kevin Owens & More
October 9, 2021
Are you ready to talk a little more ‘rasslin? It’s the Ultimate Wrestling Q&A and this is going to be a long one. Are you ready? I said, ARE YOU READY? Let’s do this.
Is Bret Hart the greatest wrestler of all time? If so, why so? If not, who?
Is Bret a top star and one of the best of all time? Probably, but is he the very best of all time? That is very arguable. In the ring, he has few peers, but in terms of showmanship, charisma, promos, etc, he was lacking a bit, and all of that matters in saying who was or is the greatest of all time. So if not Bret, then who? It’s all a matter of perspective and what a person likes. Arguments can be made for Ric Flair and for Shawn Michaels. Valid arguments can be made for Jack Brisco, Terry Funk, Dory Funk, and Harley Race as well. Hell, some can even make strong arguments for Bryan Danielson or Roman Reigns. But no one can make that argument for Hulk Hogan. Hogan sucks lol. So who is the greatest of all time? I’ll go with Fuego Del Sol. He’s not, but he has a great ass so it’s all good.
Who’s the baldest wrestler of all time?
The legendary Baron Von Raschke… and dat’ is all de’ people need to know!
Who is your favorite woman wrestler?
When it comes to ladies of the past eras and times, anyone who knows me can tell you my answer and that is Lisa Moretti, aka Ivory. As for the currently active ladies of today’s wrestling world, let’s go with The Empress of Tomorrow, Asuka.
Who’re the top 5 greatest bald wrestlers of all time?
The five greatest baldies are Stone Cold Steve Austin, Baron Von Raschke, Kurt Angle, Abdullah the Butcher, and occasionally, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
Top 4 guys to never win a WWE World Championship?
Off the top of my head, I’d go with Roddy Piper, Mr. Perfect Curt Hennig, Sami Zayn, and Heath Slater.
Is Matt Hardy the modern-day equivalent of “Number One” Paul Jones?
Jim Cornette was asked this question and it’s a fair comparison as Matt is, as Jones was, formerly a top wrestler who is dealing with injuries and has made the transition to being a manager. But as Corny also mentioned, Jones had a foe to go against in Jimmy Valiant and some names in his managerial care to make it work and draw money. Matt, thus far, doesn’t really have a foe of any significance and all of his clients are no-names that no one knows or cares about. So if Matt is trying to be Paul Jones, he has a way to go before he’s even close to comparing to “Number One”. Matt has the potential and maybe this will work for him and he’ll be able to make it work and help some future stars grow and develop, but right now, he’s got a long way to go. Maybe AEW can bring in Jimmy Valiant to help him out. Valiant is only in his seventies, but I’m sure he’d do it.
Does AEW need some new announcers? JR and Tony are bland corny and outdated.
What Schiavone and Ross have is a love and passion for the sport and when the product is good, they show it. I’ll be the first to admit that neither man is what he once was, but even so, they’re still better than anyone else out there and do a great job in calling the matches and talking wrestling. Leave them alone and let them do their jobs unless you can do better. They’re better than you are, and they know it.
Are you happy to see Lio Rush as part of AEW?
If I wanted someone loud and annoying, I’d much rather see Enzo Amore or really anyone else. Rush is a good talker and good worker, but it just annoys me how he “retired” to get out of a contract with one company, and then, all of a sudden, he’s signing with All Elite Wrestling. It just rubs me as bad business and being shady and a piece of crap. I wish him success and luck and maybe he’ll be a big asset to AEW, but for me personally, I could care less.
Gorgeous George vs Adrian Street. Who wins?
Admittingly, I’ve only seen a few matches of Gorgeous George on YouTube, but I’ve seen many a match with Adrian Street and I know of his background and legit history as a shooter so, in my honest opinion, this wouldn’t even be close. Adrian Street all the way.
Who’s the WEAKEST member of the 4 Horsewomen? (Charlotte Flair, Bayley, Sasha Banks, Backy Lynch).
They are all top stars and have their strong and weak points. This is a tough call. In terms of the overall package, I think that the weakest of the group is probably Sasha Banks. Charlotte is over-used and growing stale and Becky’s heel turn doesn’t make sense, but that doesn’t detract from the total package. Bayley is strongly under-appreciated. And Sasha? Well, she’s Sasha. ‘Nuff said!
How do you think that Alexa Bliss will return to the WWE?
When the lovely Alexa makes her return to TV and the house shows, I expect we’ll have the lovely Miss Bliss from a couple of years ago back in action with no mention of the evil dolls, black magic, spooky stuff, or craziness. It’s best left forgotten and will be.
What are your thoughts on Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns being booked for the Crown Jewel Pay Per View in Saudi Arabia?
Well, they have to have the match somewhere and while I’d personally prefer to see it happen at Wrestlemania, Crown Jewel is as good a place as any. I expect that this will only be the start of a long-term story with Brock, Roman, and Heyman and the culmination will take place at Mania. At least I hope so.
Do you believe the rumor about WWE Creative wanting Adam Cole to be a manager for Keith Lee?
The original story came from Meltzer so I would take it with a grain of salt. He is not very reliable and stuff tends to be exaggerated or dare we say, made up at times.
Should Kevin Owens leave the WWE and join AEW?
He should weigh his options, consider his family and what would be best for them, look at the financial offers, and decide what would be best for the man, Kevin Steen, both personally and professionally, and then act accordingly.
And there you go. My thanks for reading. Comments, thoughts, and any questions are welcome and appreciated. Until the next time, take care and stay safe. I’ll see you at the matches.
