Tossing Salt Presents:
Ultimate Wrestling Q&A
Corey Graves, MLW Lawsuit, Tammy Sytch & More
January 16, 2022
It’s a two-for-one special today. Let’s do another one. It’s the Ultimate Wrestling Q&A. And it all starts right now.
WWE Commentator Corey Graves was recently medically cleared to be able to return to the ring as a wrestler. Do you think he should wrestle again or else remain a commentator?
While I wouldn’t mind seeing Corey work a few matches here and there, I think he’s better off to stay at that announce table. He’s established himself as one of the better color guys of this era and that’s where the long-range career aspects remain and the most money probably will be. Corey can work the occasional angle, much like Jerry Lawler used to do back in the day, but make a Corey Graves match a very special attraction. Calling the action is where he excels and where he belongs.
The Rock & Roll Express, Ricky Morton & Robert Gibson have announced their Farewell Tour for 2022. Thoughts?
It’s sad to see one of the greatest tag teams in wrestling history call it a day, but they’ve far exceeded any expectations and both men are in their sixties now. It’s time, probably past time, and they’re getting to go out on their own terms so what more can be asked. Best of luck and well wishes to both men. They definitely deserve it.
Thoughts on MLW filing a lawsuit against WWE for predatory practices and their control of the wrestling industry?
If what MLW is claiming, that WWE interfered and cost them not one, but two major television deals, I can’t blame them for being pissed off and filing this suit. Much of what I’ve read thus far, about the WWE blocking other companies from certain arenas has been known to be true for years and WWE has often acted in a bully-type of way towards smaller companies. That’s not speculation, but fact. I wish MLW the very best in this venture. From what I’ve heard so many times over the years, it’s long overdue.
Who is more deserving of a spot in WWE’s Hall of Fame- Sid or Lex Luger?
It’s like comparing apples and oranges to be in the Fruit Hall of Fame. Both are worthy in many ways and both deserve to wear that ring and have that accreditation in their resume of being a member of the WWE Hall of Fame.
Tammy Sytch has been arrested again, for making threats and weapons possession. Thoughts?
Tammy Sytch is her own worst enemy and while I’d like to say I’m surprised by hearing about this, I’m not. This time, she allegedly threatened a guy with a pair of scissors and threatened to kill him. I guess she was channeling her inner Arn Anderson/Sid Vicious moment. But the bad thing was, this was all done in the presence of a police officer who recorded it on his dash-cam. Most likely, she’s headed back to prison, and to be honest, that’s probably the best place for her. When she’s unsupervised, she seemingly has problems with alcohol and drugs and is eventually going to end up dead if things don’t change. At least if she’s locked up, she can’t hurt herself or others quite as badly. She’s just sad!
In a fantasy tag team up (like an official tag team, but they’ve never been in a tag team together officially (i.e. Hardy Boyz), who would you put together? Mine would be Eddie Guerrero & Brock Lesnar.
A tag team that was never really a tag team, but would make a good tag team that I’d like to see? How about Seth Rollins and Beautiful Bobby Eaton? Eddie Guerrero and Angel Garza would be good. Stan Hansen & Brock Lesnar would be a great team for Japan. And just for the hell of it to close things up, Marko Stunt & Hornswoggle.
Rumors are that the Elimination Chamber match is being planned for Saudi Arabia, as well as possibly taping an edition of RAW. Thoughts?
One thing I’ve heard is that they may change the name of the Elimination Chamber to the Wrestlemania Chamber. That sounds stupid in my opinion and I hope they don’t do that. As for holding the Elimination Chamber match in Saudi Arabia, that could be cool. It’s a good match and usually fun to watch so it doesn’t matter what the location is so long as it’s got the right people and is booked well. Have RAW taped in Saudi Arabia? Well, if it would mean an easier traveling schedule for the WWE talents so they don’t have to do that crazy plane ride and then go straight to TV for a live event, that actually sounds like a good idea. Whatever works best and is easiest on the workers, I say go for it.
And there you go. My thanks for reading. Comments, thoughts, and any questions you may have, then give me a shout and let’s chat. Take care and stay warm. It’s freaking cold outside. I’ll see you at the matches.
