Unlike the people in WWE, we use our own name. Always have and always will. It’s the Ultimate Wrestling Q&A. Let’s do this.

With the right guidance, The Acclaimed could be the hottest thing in tag team wrestling on promo alone. Max spitting the bombs, and “The Acclaimed has arrived!”, could be the new Suck it! Tell me I’m wrong.

Okay, you’re wrong. The Acclaimed is good and with more experience, will only get better as time goes on. But the hottest thing in tag team wrestling? So long as FTR, The Briscoes, or the Atlantic Coast Destruction Crew (look them up) are actively wrestling, The Acclaimed will have to settle for just being pretty good.

Should Sammy & Tay have a “live sex celebration” aka Edge & Lita style, live on AEW TV?

To be honest, I’d rather see Allen Angels and Aaron Solow have one than Sammy and Tay. I like Sammy & Tay. They’re awesome. But too much of a good thing can get old fast and for the past few months, it’s definitely been too much of the lovey-dovey stuff with these two.

King Kong Bundy versus Bam Bam Bigelow. Who wins?

The ref gets bumped, Bundy nails Bigelow with his avalanche, another ref runs in (who coincidentally looks like my bro) and does the count as Bundy screams “Five-five-five!”.

Have you ever noticed that every time Hulk Hogan enters a promotion someone wants to try and kill Hulkamania and fails?

And have you ever noticed that when this was done, it worked and made tons of money. Like him or not, Hogan had a run for about fifteen years where he was legit one of the biggest names in wrestling. With this angle you speak of, it was something that worked with him and as we all know, if something in wrestling works once, run it into the ground and repeat as often as possible. So that’s what the promoters did and made a huge fortune doing so.

So it looks like we won’t be getting Bret Hart as the manager for FTR in AEW. Who would make a good replacement to act as FTR’s manager?

FTR doesn’t really need a manager, but apart from Jim Cornette, who doesn’t have the time and is retired as a manager, the best name I can think of is right there in AEW, doing nothing at the moment. FTR, managed by “The Enforcer” Arn Anderson has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it? Madusa might be available as well. Both would be great in that role.

Should Penta dethrone Scorpio Sky?

Penta would be a good choice for a future TNT Champion, but based on some spoilers I read a few moments ago, someone has already beaten him to the draw and has won the TNT Championship from Scorpio Sky. So maybe a live-sex celebration on Dynamite this upcoming Wednesday? We’ll have to wait and see.

Owen Hart versus Eddie Guerrero. Who wins?

This would be a classic match and so damn fun to see. If these two fought ten times, each man would win five of the ten matches. And then in the rubber match, Eddie would come out on top. Why? Because he lies, cheats, steals, and probably used the tights and a foot on the ropes. What more reason do you need.

Linda McMahon was quoted as saying that “the number of illegals entering the US isn’t sustainable”. Agree or disagree?

Linda is a very smart woman and you can’t just keep adding and adding to anything without limitations and restrictions or soon, it will overflow and overwhelm the item that was being added to. That’s common sense, so I definitely agree. It’s not political – it’s just the truth!

Who were the most “over” wrestler you’ve ever seen live?

Live, it has to be The Boogie Woogie Man, Jimmy Valiant. I saw him live at a show in Durham, NC, nearly two decades after his prime days with Crockett, but when that music hit, the sounds of the Manhatten Transfer singing “Boy From New York City”, the whole building exploded. And this sixty-plus-year-old man stole the show. You can have your Austin 3:16 and Cult of Personality in Chicago, but in the Carolinas, nothing is better than when the Boogie Woogie Man comes to town. Have mercy!

And there you go. My thanks for reading. Comments, thoughts, or any questions you may have are welcome and appreciated. And with that, I bid you good night. Take care, be safe, and watch out for some idiot from the Great North. He calls himself Hannibal and he wants your blood. Have a great one and I’ll see you at the matches.
