Tossing Salt Presents:
Ultimate Wrestling Q&A
Eric Bischoff, Cody, Steve O & More
December 29, 2021
It’s Wednesday morning and you know what that means. It’s time, once again, to roll that fatty for your pimp daddy. I know I’m not the only one. Oh wait, I was watching a shoot interview with the Godfather a little while ago. My bad! No pimping today, not yet anyhow. It’s time to do that Ultimate Wrestling Q&A. So let’s get busy and say it out loud, “Pimpin’ ain’t easy!”. Now for the Q&A stuff.
Eric Bischoff was back on RAW. Should WWE rehire Eric and make him a regular character?
While having Eric back as an on-screen authority figure would be good to see, he’s not really needed right now. Adam Pearce & Sonya Deville are doing a good job in the Authority roles and adding Eric to the mix would be a bit redundant. I could see bringing him in if something was to happen to Pearce and Deville, but for now, just the occasional cameo appearance on WWE TV (and AEW TV) is probably the best option for Mr. Bischoff.
Thoughts on Cody being the TNT Champion again?
I hated to see Sammy lose the belt and I thought he was doing an excellent job as the TNT Champion, but Cody as the champ works for me as well. Cody is a face who gets more boos than cheers so he can face both good and bad guys, taking on more of a variety than would have worked well with Sammy. And it’s getting publicity and heat from the fans, For a tweener like Cody, that’s a good thing.
If Brock beats Roman on Saturday, let’s pray WALTER comes out and destroys Lesner!
That works for me. I’d love to see WALTER move to the main roster and get a big push and fighting Brock for the Universal Championship would be a great way to do it.
Paul Heyman or Jim Cornette?
In terms of being a manager, I’d go with Cornette. In terms of booking a company, I’d go with Heyman for the most part, but I’d have Corny stepping in and helping out. Can you imagine these two men working together? It would be great wrestling that makes sense and would definitely blow anything in WWE, AEW, or Impact Wrestling away.
1990 Taker vs 1997 Goldberg. Who wins?
This one isn’t even close. Do you remember what the Taker looked like in the early ’90s? He was a jacked-up monster of a man. He was big and moved well. Goldberg might give him a fight for a few minutes, but when the match was over and the dust settled, Goldberg would be told to Rest In Peace.
Do you remember Steve Olsonoski, aka Steve O? Thoughts?
I remember Steve O from two things. One was a run as a generic babyface where he had some success, had a few good matches, and had a run with the National Championship if I recall correctly. And the other thing I remember him from was that he played Mr. Go, the masked Ninja assistant to Larry Zbyszko in the AWA for a while. Yes, a Polish, Vanilla Midget was the dreaded masked Ninja for the AWA. The more you know.
Chyna versus Nyla Rose. Who wins?
A woman who looks like a man versus a man who thinks he’s a woman. This would be an interesting match for sure, but just please don’t make it a bra & panties match. Just say No to that. And who would win? I’d go with Chyna. She proved long ago that she can take any man, regardless of how big and bad they are, and in spite of what delusions that they may live under. Chyna wins… period.
And there you go. My thanks for reading. Any thoughts, questions, or opinions you’d like to share or ask, feel free and give me a shout. Until the next time, take care and stay safe. I’ll see you at the matches.
