Tossing Salt Presents:
Ultimate Wrestling Q&A
Cody Rhodes, Vince McMahon & More
October 26, 2021
It’s been a few days, but it’s time to rock & roll and get back into the swing of things, and what better way to start than with an edition of the Ultimate Wrestling Q&A. Let’s do this.
Cody Rhodes is way better than his father ever was. Agree or disagree?
This one is a tough call because Cody is in better shape than his father ever was and is a better technical wrestler than his dad was by far. But Dusty was the better talker by far and knew how to tell a story in a match better than almost anyone of his era. So who’s better overall? I think Cody is the better sports entertainer and Dusty is the better professional wrestler. And there you go.
If it was up to you to decide, how long would you have Roman Reigns hold The Universal Title for?
I would have Roman remain as the Tribal Chief and Head of the Table until Wrestlemania. And then, he would face off against and soundly defeat The Rock in a classic battle. And then, the next night on RAW, a proud and triumphant Roman falls victim and loses the Universal title after a seemingly random challenge from a surprise returning superstar, a former Paul Heyman guy named Joe Hennig, the man formerly known as Curtis Axel. Let Axel use his real name and come back as a new version of “Mr. Perfect” and surprise the world under the guidance of former mentor/manager and new consultant, Paul Heyman. Admit it, it’d be a big surprise and make money.
You have the money to sign one and only one. Which one are you signing? Jon Moxley or Seth Rollins?
It’s a tough call because both men are top guys and could be used in so many different ways to build around, but for me, I’d have to go with Seth. Of the two, I just find him the better overall entertainer and wrestler with the biggest upside, especially in comparison to his former SHIELD brother.
How would you rate Vince McMahon as a wrestler?
He wasn’t bad at all, especially when you consider how little actual in-ring training he had before doing main events with Steve Austin, Triple H, The Rock, and others. Vince was in great shape with a great character and he played it right to perfection. He wasn’t a Ricky Steamboat or Dean Malenko in terms of actual in-ring ability, but he was consistent, believable, and knew his role, and played it well. On a scale of one to ten, I’d give him a solid 8.
You can have dinner with any 3 AEW wrestlers. Who are they?
Sammy Guevera, Q.T. Marshall & Tony Khan. That way, I’d get on the VLOG and also probably an AEW contract of some sort as well as a good meal and a fun time.
Marko Stunt versus Drake Maverick versus James Ellsworth versus Gillberg. Who wins?
Well, after the referees stop Hornswoggle and El Torito from getting involved and interfering, we’d see Drake Maverick, the only actual really good wrestler in this bunch, go all SPUD on everyone’s ass and take out Ellsworth to get the clean pin and win.
Is Wrestlemania better off with two nights or just one?
It’s a tough call because I like the two show format that they’ve used for the past couple of years, but it also takes away some of the impact and splendor of the biggest show of the year when the show is broken up into two nights. I like having the Hall of Fame on Thursday, Smackdown Live on Friday, NXT Takeover on Saturday, Wrestlemania on Sunday, and then a live RAW on Monday to wrap things up. Five nights and five great shows. That just does it for me and makes me all warm in the stump so I’ll say one night for Mania as part of an all-wrestling/all-action week.
And there you go. My thanks for reading. Comments, thoughts, and any questions you may have are welcome and appreciated. Until the next time, take care and stay good. I’ll see you at the matches.
