Ultimate Wrestling Q&A
Sasha & Naomi, Steamboat vs Flair & More
May 18, 2022
Ready to lay down my title belt and just walk out. I don’t like what the boss has for me. It’s the Ultimate Wrestling Q&A. Let’s do this.
So after Sasha and Naomi walked out of WWE, what should WWE do with the Women’s Tag Team Championship titles?
In regards to the Women’s Tag Team Titles, it’s a simple fix. A tournament lasting a few weeks or a big multi-team match on RAW to crown new champions. I’d personally prefer a tournament that lasts a few weeks on RAW and Smackdown and culminates at a Premium Live Event with new champions crowned, but WWE is more likely to just throw a few teams together and do it in one night. Regardless of how the matter is fixed, I don’t think it will take long or be a major problem for WWE.
Rick Steamboat announced that he has declined to participate in Ric Flair’s return match in July. So if it does go forward as a six-man tag match, who should be the sixth man?
It’s a shame that Steamboat decided against taking part in the rumored six-man tag match, teaming with The Rock & Roll Express against FTR and Ric Flair, but honestly, I don’t blame him. Unlike some wrestlers, he doesn’t want to damage the way fans remember him and destroy his legacy. But if it’s not Steamboat, then who? The easy answer is Sting. He was Flair’s first opponent on the first Clash of Champions and wrestled Flair on both the first and last WCW Monday Nitro, so wrestling Flair in his (hopefully) the last match makes sense. I’m not sure if Tony Khan will sign off on and allow it, but Khan hasn’t signed off on FTR being there yet either. If he does allow FTR to wrestle, I’m sure he’d allow Sting to do so as well. But if it’s not Steamer, then make it the man called Sting.
Is the Bullet Club the best faction in pro wrestling history?
The Bullet Club is arguably the best faction currently in existence, with factions and mentions in Japan, AEW, WWE, Impact, and AAA all within the past few weeks. But in wrestling history? So long as there are groups like DX, The Horsemen, The nWo, Evolution, the bWo, the Social Outcasts, The Heenan Family, Jimmy Hart’s First Family, The Dungeon of Doom, Paul Jones’ Army, the Varsity Club, The Gunn Club, etc., the Bullet Club might get acknowledged in the fine print at the bottom of the page, are they the best in history? Not even close.
Dana Brooke referenced Carmella & James Ellsworth on RAW. Is the master of No-Chin-Music coming back to WWE?
I doubt it, but if it happens, then it happens. I’d love to see it though. Ellsworth and R-Truth as the World Tag Team Champions. Book it, Vince.
Former WWE wrestler and Funkadactyl Cameron says that she thinks Naomi was manipulated into walking out with Sasha. Do you agree?
From what I’ve read and heard from quite a few people, Sasha is the one rumored to be getting all the heat and blame for the issues and walking out on WWE this past Monday night. Naomi is being spoken of and seen as naive and more of a follower than anything else. I don’t know these people and I don’t know all the details, but in total speculation on my part, my gut says that when the smoke clears, Naomi will be back in the WWE and all will be brushed over. As for Sasha, I think she’s gone from the wrestling side of things and there will be a breach of contract lawsuit in her future.
Hookhausen (Hook & Danhausen) versus The Dancing Fools (Disco Inferno & Alex Wright). Who wins?
As a team, Disco and Alex are the better team and better, more well-rounded wrestlers by far, but Hook and Danhausen are the “it-team” and who the fans of today would be more into, just by the nature of how they’re booked. Hook is the unstoppable and handsome devil while Danhausen is, well he’s whatever the hell Danhausen is all about. So who would win? Alex & Disco would win the match, pinning Danhausen, but then after the match, Hook would toss Wright from the ring and lay out Disco. And there you go.
In his prime, The Russian Bear Ivan Koloff versus The Bulgarian Brute, Miro. Who wins?
Miro was great when he had his own day, but Ivan was a former WWWF Champion and he beat Bruno at the Garden. Miro is power and brutality, but Ivan is the ring general and wily veteran. Ivan wins.
And there you go. My thanks for reading. Comments, thoughts, and any questions are welcome and appreciated. Until the next time, take care and be safe my friends. Watch out for the foreign objects. I’ll see you at the matches.
