Tossing Salt Presents:
Ultimate Wrestling Q&A
Shane McMahon, Joey Janela, The Royal Rumble & More
January 31, 2022
Welcome to the show. It’s the Ultimate Wrestling Q&A and it all starts right now. Let’s do this.
Jade Cargill versus Bianca Belair. Who wins?
An easy call as Belair has much more experience, is far more polished against a wider variety of opponents, and is just a point-blank better wrestler. Jade has a great look and might match Belair in the strength department, but in every other area, Belair is the better wrestler. Bianca wins.
What was the best part of the Men’s Royal Rumble Match?
When it was finally over. That was a long match and seemed to last forever. But so far as the best spot, I’ll go with Riddle jumping off Otis’s back to give someone an RKO. That was a cool spot.
What was the best part of the Women’s Royal Rumble match?
The return of Ivory, dressed as her Right To Censor character. Ivory has always been excellent at taking anything the WWE gives her and turning it into something good regardless of how big a pile of crap it may be. She proved it once again on Saturday night.
Ole Anderson vs. Ivan Koloff. Who wins?
A tough call because both these men are true legends and could put on one helluva match with anyone. If there wasn’t a DQ or count-out first and had to have a winner, I’d go with Ivan Koloff on this one.
Name a current WWE wrestler who you think deserves a push and maybe a program with a world champion?
The man who was originally scheduled to win the Rumble match before plans were changed, the man they call Riddle.
According to Meltzer, Shane McMahon will probably have a match at Wrestlemania? Are you interested in seeing Shane wrestle and if so, against who?
I don’t want to see Shane sweat and throw those awful punches against anyone, but he’s scheduled to be regular until after Wrestlemania, with participation in the Elimination Chamber and a match at Mania both in the current plans. So who should he wrestle at Mania? How about Sheamus? I’d love to see Sheamus kick Shane’s face in. That would be awesome.
In their prime, who wins: Arn Anderson vs. Tully Blanchard.
Back in their prime, I’d have to go with Tully. Arn was bigger and stronger, but Tully was the veteran and a better all-around wrestler at that stage of their careers. Tully would win.
Joey Janella’s contract is set to expire from AEW and probably won’t be renewed. Thoughts?
Joey has a good thing going over at GCW so while getting released from AEW probably sucks for him, he’s going to be fine. I don’t think the program with Matt Cardona is going to end anytime soon and I’m sure that we’ll be seeing Janela showing up on Impact at some point or maybe even the NWA to keep things going. It’s not a big loss for AEW, but Janella, he’ll be fine.
What do you think they’re going to do with the Roman vs Seth feud? Since Seth didn’t get the clean pin and the belt do you think Seth will somehow end up with Roman at Wrestlemania or do you think they’ll just focus on Roman v Brock?
I think we’ll see more of Roman versus Seth at the Elimination Chamber match in Saudi Arabia to wrap things up for now and then Seth can move on to other things for Mania, aka Bobby Lashley, while Roman will be more focused on the stuff with Brock.
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 be good. I’ll see you at the matches.
