Tossing Salt Presents:
Ultimate Wrestling Q&A
Judy Bagwell, CM Punk, Santino Marella & More
November 10, 2021
Another night of no sleep, but luckily there is something to do to fill the time. How about the Ultimate Wrestling Q&A. Sounds like a plan to me. Let’s do this.
Judy Bagwell passed away. Thoughts on the former co-holder of the WCW World Tag Team Championship?
To start, my condolences to Buff Bagwell and the family and friends of Judy Bagwell. To be honest, I wasn’t crazy about her being a part of WCW and the storylines involving her son, but blame for that, I’ll put on the booker at the time, Vince Russo. Bagwell was having fun, taking advantage of an opportunity, and making an impact in the process. Who can blame her for that? Rest in Peace Mrs. Bagwell.
Tony Khan says that he’s interested in some recently released WWE talent. Who do you think he’s talking about?
I’m thinking Keith Lee, Ember Moon, Franky Monet, Karrion Kross & Scarlett, and Windham Rotundo are the most likely possibilities, and if Timothy Thatcher becomes free anytime soon, I think Khan will be interested in him as well.
IWGP star KENTA recently called out CM Punk for a match. Should it happen and if so, where?
If promoters can make it happen, then it most definitely should. As to where, I would suggest a best of three series with one match in AEW, one in New Japan, and the third on a super-show co-promoted by both promotions.
Roman Reigns just passed CM Punk’s WWE title reign of 434 days. Who had the better run as champion?
Punk wrestled far more matches in his run as the WWWE Champion, but Roman has had more of a presence on TV and has been presented more as a top star by the promotion. In my opinion, history will look at Roman as having had the better reign on top of the WWE.
Does Santino Marella belong in the WWE Hall of Fame?
As a memorable and prominent member of the WWE roster for many years who is still on good terms with the company and left a strong body of work during his time as a WWE superstar, I don’t see why not. He’s definitely not going to be the headliner of any Hall of Fame class, but I can easily see him getting inducted.
Who was the better worker? Bobby Eaton or Brad Armstrong?
Both were amazing at what they accomplished each time they stepped into that ring and both are considered among the best of all time of any era. So who was better? I have to go with Bobby on this one.
Thoughts on Angelo “King Kong” Mosca?
Legit tough as they come, a true bad-ass in every sense of the word, and one of the most memorable and toughest guys of the ’70s and early ’80s era. His nicknames were “King Kong” and “Big Nasty” and he fully earned both of those titles. Just a big, tough guy who made and left his mark on the business like few others before or since. Rest in Peace, Mr. Mosca. You will be missed.
And there you go. My thanks for reading. Comments, thoughts, or any questions you may have are welcome and appreciated. Until the next time, take care of yourself and stay safe. I’ll see you at the matches.
