Tossing Salt Presents:
Ultimate Wrestling Q&A
Buddy Matthews, Rick Martel, Ric Flair & More
February 19, 2022
Let’s talk wrestling. It’s the Ultimate Wrestling Q&A. And away we go.
There’s a rumor floating around about Buddy Matthews, aka Buddy Murphy, who might be the next free agent to join AEW. Good idea or not?
Buddy Matthews is a fantastic talent and if AEW has the opportunity to sign him up, they should do so as soon as possible. WWE made a huge mistake, in my opinion, in not using this guy properly and pushing him to the moon. I hope that AEW won’t make the same mistake.
RK-Bro is just about played out and needs to break up. But… plot twist… it needs to break up because Riddle turns heel and joins Alpha Academy. How about it?
A swerve. I like it. Book it, Vince.
Should Rick Martel be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame?
Rick Martel is a former AWA World Champion, a former WCW World Television Champion, a former WWF Tag Team Champion, and as The Model, was one of the top stars of the WWF of his era. Should he be a part of the WWE Hall of Fame? Does Hulk Hogan like to stretch the truth? Absolutely, he belongs. No doubts about it.
EC3 & Braun Strowman announced the formation of a new promotion called CYN (Control Your Narrative). Have you heard about this? Thoughts?
From what I understand, they have a television deal pending and will be weekly, on-location TV with opportunities for anyone and everyone. It sounds intriguing and if I get the chance to see them do their thing, I most definitely will. Any opportunity that gives the boys a place to work and get some positive exposure, I’m all for.
Ric Flair is upset that no one from WWE called him after he split with Wendy Barlow. What the hell? Thoughts?
This is absolutely crazy. Why would anyone from WWE call him to offer condolences for a divorce/split, especially when it happens as often as it seems to with Flair? Wendi is what, Flair’s 5th wife? By what he’s implying, they may as well send him a card every time he uses the bathroom or comes up short on a bar bill as well. Flair has trash-talked the WWE so much over the past couple of years, even filing a lawsuit against them for Becky Lynch being “The Man”, and then he’s upset about no one calling him to congratulate him on losing his woman? It’s just insanity.
Anything Goes Match: “Purple Haze” Mark Lewin versus “The Lumberjack” Jos LeDuc. Who wins?
All respect for Mark Lewin, but this one goes easily and quickly to the big Canadian Lumberjack, Jos LeDuc.
Which active WWE Superstar will headline their own Hall of Fame class?
Roman Reigns will. So with Seth Rollins, John Cena, and Brock Lesnar, when they are ready for that induction and gold ring.
Who is the greatest manager/valet in wrestling history?
That’s two different categories and the only ones who I can think of that would fit both categories would be either Madusa, Sherri Martel, or Woman. As for the best, in my opinion, for each category, I’d go with Baby Doll for the Valet, while the best manager kudos goes to Jim Cornette.
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 safe. Watch out for the guy with the forks. I’ll see you at the matches.
