Tossing Salt Presents:
Ultimate Wrestling Q&A
Edge, Cesaro, Writers & More
February 26, 2022
Are you ready for some wrestling? It’s a mad, mad, mad world and it’s all about the Ultimate Wrestling Q&A. Let’s do this.
Great Khali, Omos & El Gigante versus Yokozuna, Crusher Blackwell, and Giant Haystacks. Who wins?
That’s over a ton of flesh right there so I hope the ring would be triple-reenforced for this match. Khali, Omos, and Gigante have the height, while the bulk advantage goes to Yoko, Crusher, and Haystacks. The experience and skill advantage goes to Yoko and his friends as well. Between the three of them Khali, Omos, and Gigante couldn’t outwrestle Hornswoggle except for maybe tripping over him. Yoko and his partners can actually wrestle and use that bulk to their advantage. Yoko, Blackwell, and Haystacks would get the win.
Edge made references to 4 possible WrestleMania opponents in his promo on RAW. Out of the four, who do you hope answers his WM open challenge? AJ Styles, Finn Balor, Damian Priest, or Cody Rhodes?
Of the four men mentioned, I’d love to see Edge & Cody go at it and have a helluva spectacular match, but I think most likely, we’ll be seeing a great fight with Edge and AJ Styles. It’s never been done before and it’s got classic written all over it. I wouldn’t be sad about any of these matches happening, but Edge and Cody is still the one I’d like to see most.
Why is Christian with Jungle Boy & Luchasaurus instead of wrestling in AEW?
Maybe he has an injury that we don’t really know about, but most likely, I think it’s just that AEW has so many big names on the roster, Christian is kind of lost in the shuffle so far as wrestling goes. Neither Jungle Boy nor Luchasaurus is a great talker, so he’s being used as a mentor and spokesperson for now for that team to help up their status, plus keep himself relevant. That’s all I can figure out.
Disco Inferno recently stated on his podcast that AEW essentially needs help in terms of promos and would be smart to hire some writers. Do you agree?
I agree to a point that the AEW promos are not always great and several of their talents need help with constructing and delivering their promos. A couple of writers to help would be good, but I’d go instead with a promo Coach, someone who has that wrestling mind and can mentor the talents about cutting a good promo without having to write it for them word for word. This is what Dusty Rhodes was doing in NXT to help the talent learn and develop and AEW needs to find their own “Dusty” to take that role. I think William Regal might be available and looking for a job. Arn, Tully, Jake Roberts, Big Show, MarkHenry, and Taz are all floating around backstage so maybe one of them could step up. Disco made some valid points about the AEW talents on the mic and the question is, what will AEW do about it. Well, now they know what to do.
Cesaro has left WWE. Thoughts?
It was a major surprise, but then again, not really. Cesaro hasn’t been used right by WWE for a while and hell, he wasn’t even included in the Royal Rumble match. That was a sure sign that things weren’t well with Cesaro’s standing in WWE. Cesaro is one of those guys that everyone saw potential in except for Vince, and while he had a few chances to break out, WWE would always pull back and cut the legs out from under him time and time again. Cesaro is one of those guys who could have a good match with anyone on the roster and now, perhaps he’ll finally get the chance to prove it. This is a big loss for WWE whether they realize it or not, and I hope that AEW or New Japan is quick to snap this guy up and give him the opportunity he needs so he can prove the naysayers wrong. My thoughts? WWE dropped the ball and screwed up. Period!
With the term “game-changer” literally being thrown around like New Day pancakes now….who are the legit game-changers in the business today? Meaning they would legit change the game (landscape) of the business by going from one company to the next?
When Ric Flair went to WWF from WCW, and then when Hogan and then Randy Savage left WWF to go to WCW, those were game-changing moments, as we well remember, and when Hall & Nash made their moves to WCW, history was made. As for now, if Roman Reigns, Brock Lesnar, or Charlotte Flair were to leave WWE and go sign with AEW, that would be legit game-changing moments. If CM Punk, MJF, or hell, even Kenny Omega were to quit AEW and go to WWE, that would change the wrestling dynamic and be legit game-changing moments. The names aren’t as big now nor as singularly important to each company, but there are a few, as I just named. If they decide to make a move, things will never be the same again.
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 of yourself and be safe. I’ll see you at the matches.’
