Tossing Salt Presents:
Ultimate Wrestling Q&A
Ted DiBiase, The Boogeyman, Lio Rush & More
February 10, 2022
It’s time to talk some pro wrestling. Are you ready to be Ultimate? Let’s do this.
Any chance Shane McMahon being let go is an angle leading to a WrestleMania program? Shane w/ Triple H vs Austin Theory w/ Vince McMahon for control of WWE and the loser must leave the company.
There’s a chance, but it’s not very likely. An angle like this requires planning, preparation, and creativity, something that WWE has been majorly lacking as of the past several years. I don’t see it happening.
If you could pick one person in the wrestling industry to narrate your life, who would it be?
The first name that came to mind for me was Jim Cornette. Also Randy Savage came to mind, but then I watched a brief video with Danhausen. And there you go. For the life of Dougie, a narration by Danhausen is the way to go.
Ted DiBiase did not look like the main event superstars of the era. If Ted had a different gimmick, would he still have had the success he did in WWF?
DiBiase was a great wrestler and talented performer and I suspect that he would have had great success regardless of the character he portrayed. But that being said, the Million Dollar Man character gave him a big shot upwards and push that anything else would have had a hard time comparing to. He would have done well regardless, but that gimmick helped a great deal and made him far bigger than he probably would have been otherwise.
Which wrestler had the best physique of all time? *(WITHOUT having used ANY steroids.)
Best physique without the use of steroids? The problem with this question is that we have no way of knowing who did and who didn’t use steroids. Unless we were there, we can only speculate so regardless of who I pick, it’s only a guess at best. So best physique that looks natural? How about Alex Wright? He was a hottie.
Can someone explain what the appeal is of Danhausen? I haven’t seen him before AEW, so to me, he just looks like a bad addition to an already WAY overcrowded roster.
His appeal is that he’s unique and rarely steps out of character. He’s not cookie-cutter and different and in today’s world, that’s hard to find. And yes, I agree with you that AEW’s roster is way overcrowded and it’s hard to imagine where a character like Danhausen fits in, but he does add to the product and I’m sure that they’ll find him a spot. We’ll just have to wait and see how it goes.
Lio Rush’s contract with AEW was not renewed and he’s leaving next month. Why?
Only Tony Khan and Lio Rush can truly say why, but if I was to speculate, I think that Lio’s calling out Tony on a worldwide platform about the whole Big Swole mess might have something to do with it. A person doesn’t embarrass their boss in front of millions of people and walks away without any consequences. Lio did and well, these are the consequences.
The Boogeyman (Marty Wright) announced that he has signed a new contract with WWE. Thoughts?
What wasn’t clarified in the announcement was is this a regular wrestling contract or a Legend’s deal? Boogeyman, real name Marty Wright, is 57 years old so I suspect it’s the latter. And my thoughts? Congratulations. I guess we’ll be seeing a lot of cameos on RAW and at Premium Live Events for the next few years. Sounds good to me.
Who are the Pam & Tommy of pro wrestling?
So far as the Tommy goes, I think Batista is the man who is most qualified to fill that role. After all, we’ve all heard about Batista’s… you know. And who would be Pam? A bleached blonde with a large chest? Let’s go with Tammy Sytch, aka Sunny. That’s probably an insult to Pam and if so, my apologies. I wonder if Sunny and Batista have ever hooked up? If they ever do, we’ll have to be sure to videotape it.
And there you go. My thanks for reading. Comments, thoughts, and any questions you may have, use the comment box or drop me a line. I’d love to talk to you and they are much appreciated. And with that, I’m out of here. Take care and be safe. I’ll see you at the matches.
