Ultimate Wrestling Q&A
Cesaro, Adrian Street, Tammy Sytch & More
February 28, 2022
Are you ready for a rumble in the jungle? It’s more savage than a Smurf with a tomahawk. It’s the Ultimate Wrestling Q&A and it all starts right now. Let’s do this.
In your opinion, what was the most disappointing storyline in wrestling history?
The anonymous RAW General Manager was one of the first that comes to mind, with the big reveal being Hornswoggle. The infamous Black Scorpion angle was pretty bad as well. And the worst? How about when Zack Ryder, at the height of his popularity, fell in love with Eve Torres. Then, as a result, she made out with John Cena, caused Zack to be tossed down some stairs while in a wheelchair by Kane, kicked him in the balls, and then… nothing. Zack never got any kind of comeback against any of these people. Not his friend Cena, who betrayed him, not against Kane who physically decimated him, and not against that jezebel Eve, who played and humiliated him. Zack’s career and popularity took a massive decline after this tragic bad booking and was never the same again.
What is the greatest match in Wrestlemania history?
Plenty of matches was better, but none were bigger than Hulk Hogan versus Andre the Giant at Wrestlemania 3. With the hype, the two principal characters involved, the build, and the legacy, this match is the biggest match in WWE history, period.
WHEN Cesaro joins AEW. What faction would you put him and who is his 1st feud?
I’m not really sure he belongs in a faction and would prefer to see him more as a solo act than just another name on the roster. If he does end up with a manager, I heard Arn Anderson recently lost a client and may be available. As for his first feud, I think the seeds have already been laid in place by Eddie Kingston. so there you go.
Do you think Cesaro will end up reuniting with Chris Hero as the Kings of Wrestling once more?
Even if it’s just for a one-shot deal, I can see Claudio and Hero reuniting for a match or two, now that both men are free and able. Nostalgia is big right now and who wouldn’t want to see the Kings of Wrestling versus The Hardy Boyz, The Briscoes, The Young Bucks, or even The Best Friends. I sure as hell would.
Rhea Ripley versus Chyna. Who wins?
While Chyna was, for her time, a freak of nature if you will, and tough as a two-dollar steak, let’s be honest here. In today’s WWE Women’s Division, she’d be just another woman and almost any of the current women in WWE could match up against her rather evenly. And with that in mind, Rhea is a wrestling machine and legit fighter. Chyna would be bigger and stronger, but once Rhea wears her down with strikes and the speed advantage, Rhea would tie her up and get the win. Be it in the ring or in a shoot, Rhea would have this one.
Adrian Street recently spoke of in an interview how WWE wanted him to come to work for WWE as a manager, but Street refused. Would Street have made a good manager?
We,, to put things in context, the team that Vince McMahon wanted Street to come in and manager were supposed to be Skinheads, and Street knew it was a bad gimmick that he didn’t want to be involved in. But would Street have made a good manager? He was well known, had a unique look, was very good on the mic, and had a strong, credible wrestling background. His presence alone would have absolutely benefitted the product and any wrestler he was paired with. Can you picture Adorable Adrian Adonis with Adrian Street and Miss Linda as his managers? No one would be laughing and he would have been WWF Champion. Adrian as a manager? Hell to the yeah for me.
Tammy Sytch (Sunny) was arrested again earlier this week, with 11 charges filed against her. Thoughts?
And the sad thing is, this is her second arrest for the year 2022 and we’re only in February. It used to be that I would make jokes and crude comments at Sytch’s expense for things such as this, but now it’s just gotten sad. Tammy is a walking time bomb waiting to explode. She’s going to end up back in prison most likely when all of this comes to a head, and when that headline ends up being Tammy Sytch Dead, no one will be surprised. I hope that she will find a path and get better, find some happiness, and get away from her demons before that prediction comes to pass. I hope so for her sake.
I just saw it on Twitter. Shane McMahon versus Hulk Hogan at Wrestlemania. Thoughts?
I think Shane was trolling. He saw some Wrestlemania 1 stuff at Madison Square Garden and took a picture to make this challenge. Hogan is not in any condition to wrestle and Shane, so far as we know, is on the outs with the WWE and his father, so he’s most likely just having fun with the fans, just being a troll. But then again, we keep hearing about Vince, who is 76 years old, wrestling Pat McAfee, so who knows for sure. Anything is possible in the WWE.
And there you go. My thanks for reading. Comments, thoughts, and any questions you may have, then feel free to give me a shout and I’ll do my best to give you an answer or reply. Until the next time, take care of yourself and be good. I’ll see you at the matches.
