Hey Yo! ‘Nuff said! Let’s do this.

Scott Hall. Thoughts?

Really, what can I say at this point? Scott Hall was a great talent, a charismatic enigma of the world of pro wrestling, a true iconic legend and he was most definitely the “Bad Guy”. My condolences to the friends, fans, and family of truly one of the best of the best. Survey Says, one more for the good guys. Rest in Peace, Scott. You most definitely will be missed.

During the 70s 80s & 90s, at any point during those years, who was the best wrestler who never won the world title in your opinion?

For the ’70s, why did we never see a World Championship reign by Ernie Ladd, I don’t understand. It was probably a legit race thing, as opposed to all of these fake race-claims we hear today. For the ’80s, I would say Bill Eadie, aka The Masked Superstar. And for the ’90s, why not “The Bad Guy” Scott Hall? He had the ability to be sure, but my guess on that was the demons, damn them!

My friend thinks the Big E’s broken neck is a work. I don’t think people are that gullible. Are they?

Your friend is an idiot. If this was in the ’70s or ’80s, then maybe it could be a work, but for 2022, WWE wouldn’t even try to pull a trick this big and I saw that botch on the live Smackdown, as did millions of folks. Big E landed directly on top of his head. It’s not a work.

So you’re TK and you’re looking at releasing 10 current people on the roster. Who’s going?

Right off the top of my head, I’d go with Yuka Sakazaki, Brandon Cutler, Michael Nakazawa, Excalibur, Leva Bates, Peter Avalon, Luther, Abadon, Anthony Ogogo, and Nick Comoroto. And I can already tell, you’re looking at these names and going, “Who?”. My thoughts exactly.

After Owen Hart’s death, should Vince McMahon have stopped the PPV and finished the matches the next night on RAW?

From what I understand, Vince allegedly asked the WWE talent and most of them agreed that the show should continue. It’s hard to second-guess a heat-of-the-moment decision, but my gut reaction is that the show had to be completed and WWE did the right thing, the same decision I would have made in that position and I think most people would have as well.

Paul Heyman recently stated in an interview that he believes Sabu and Joey Styles both belong in the WWE Hall of Fame. Do you agree?

Sabu and Joey Styles? I would have no objections at all to either of thse men and it would be well deserved.

The latest rumor for the WWE Hall of Fame is The Steiner Brothers. Yes or no?

Again, I’d have no complaints at all. The Steiner Brothers were one of the top tag teams of the ’80s. Scott went on to have an amazing career as a singles performer and both men are the father, uncle, and original mentors and trainers of current WWE breakout star Bron Breakker. The Steiners in the WWE Hall of Fame is a no-brainer in my opinion.

Sharmell is going into the WWE Hall of Fame. Thoughts?

Well, she’s more deserving than Torrie Wilson, Kelly Kelly, Drew Carey, or Steven Seagal. I just hope that Kwee Wee (Alan Funk) is there to help celebrate the induction of his former valet, Paisley.

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. I’ll see you at the matches.
