Ultimate Wrestling Q&A
WWE Music, Jim Ross, The Undertaker & More
February 20, 2022
Are you ready to do some of that wrestling stuff we all love so much? Let’s get Ultimate, as in the Ultimate Wrestling Q&A. It’s fun for the entire family and it starts right now. Let’s do this.
What is on your Mount Rushmore of WWE Entrance Themes?
A tough call because WWE has had some great music over the years and some truly iconic tunes. I think my Mt. Rushmore of songs would be “I’m Back”, used by Eric Bischoff, the Degeneration X Theme, No Chance In Hell, as used by Mr. McMahon, and finally, Ass Man, as used by Mr. Ass Billy Gunn.
Tegan Nox says that she thinks WWE is going back to the Diva era. Is she right?
A time when big boobs were preferable over arm holds and dropkicks? I don’t see it happening, not in today’s politically correct and woken environment.
WWE has announced that The Undertaker will be headlining the WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony for the Class of 2022. Thoughts?
There are few talents who deserve the honor more than the Dead Man. Congratulations to The Undertaker, probably WWE’s greatest character.
Jim Ross’s contract with AEW expires soon. Should he call it a career and retire?
As a full-time commentator, I’m inclined to say yes since Ross is seventy-years-old and definitely not what he once was while at ringside calling the action. While AEW would be smart to keep Ross as a backstage advisor and maybe help in terms of talent management, with the occasional commentary spot for special occasions, his days of doing every episode of Dynamite are coming to a close or should be. At this point, Ross would be more valuable behind the scenes rather than on camera.
So without any executive pull to influence her on-screen persona and presentation, what’s the likelihood that Brandi Rhodes wins that major women’s championship that she wanted or continues wrestling at all?
Brandi, despite her detractors, is not a bad in-ring performer and I could easily see her back in the ring full time if the rumors are true and she and Cody do end up back in WWE. She has name recognition and heat with the fans already and hasn’t even stepped into a WWE ring, so giving her some matches as a heel is a pretty safe bet. I think it will happen.
I believe that if Dusty were still alive, he would have followed his sons to AEW. If the rumors are true and Cody goes back to WWE, do you think Dusty would have followed or stayed with Dustin in AEW?
If Dusty was still alive, I don’t think he would have left NXT, regardless of what his sons decided to do. Vince respected Dusty and trusted him, and Dusty had it made as a coach and mentor. And truthfully, if Dusty was still around, I don’t think his boys would have been so quick to leave WWE. I may be wrong, but I think the Dream might have intervened on their behalf and talked to Vince before it got that far.
Triple Threat Match: The Jersey Triad (Bam Bam Bigelow, Diamond Dallas Page, Kanyon) versus The New Day (Big E, Kofi Kingston, Xavier Woods) versus The Russians (Ivan Koloff, Nikita Koloff, Krusher Kruschev). Who wins?
Three generations of damn good wrestlers from different eras in what would be a fantastic match. As for who wins, my money would be on the team from WCW, the Jersey Triad. After all, Bam Bam Bigelow, Diamond Dallas Page, and Kanyon. Who betta? Really? Who? DDP and friends win with a big BANG!
Other than the original Four Horsemen ( Ric Flair, Ole Anderson, Arn Anderson, Tully Blanchard), who was the best outsider to ever join the group?
The easy answer here is with Barry Windham being the best non-original Horseman. The harder question is who, after Windham, would be the second-best Horseman recruit? No, it’s not Mongo. I would put my money on Chris Benoit for the #2 spot.
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, my friends. I’ll see you at the matches.
