Tossing Salt Presents:
Ultimate Wrestling Q&A
Rey Mysterio, Lio Rush, Forbidden Door & More
June 22, 2022
Are you ready for some wrestling? Let’s do this Ultimate Wrestling Q&A thing. Are you ready? And away we go.
Dance Off: Ernest Miller versus Brodus Clay versus Rikishi versus Alex Wright versus Disco Inferno versus Tokyo Magnum versus Fandango. Who wins?
My personal favorite would be Disco, of course, but I think that Naomi would storm the ring, followed by Scotty 2 Hotty, and after a group discussion in the middle of the ring, instead of a dance-off, we’d have a big line-dance type tribute by all of the competitors in honor of Grand Master Sexay, Brian Christopher.
What’s your favorite Brock Lesnar vs Roman Reigns match? What are you most excited about for their encounter at Summerslam? It’s like the Yankees vs Red Sox.
My favorite? The next one that happens because when you have Brock and Roman going against each other, it’s going to be a damn good match. I did like the one at Mania where Seth Rollins came out towards the end, cashed in the Money In The Bank contract, and won the WWE title. Yes, I’m looking forward to the SummerSlam match. I have no doubt it would deliver.
Who is the greatest WWE valet ever? Is it Miss Elizabeth, Sherri Martel, Sunny, or Luna Vachon?
Of these four, I have to go with Sherri Martel. Luna was good too, but I see her more as a wrestler than a valet. I never really saw the value of Liz at ringside, and Sunny? Well, it’s Tammy Sytch so ’nuff said!
Is it time for Rey Mysterio to hang up the boots?
Personally, I think so. Rey is starting to slow down in the ring and it makes the suspension of belief that a man that small can beat monsters even harder to accept. Go ahead and have Dominick turn on his dad, get a heel manager, and be allowed to grow as a character while Rey retires. It’s best for business.
Are you looking forward to AEW’s Forbidden Door PPV?
Not really, no. I’m sure it’ll be a good show and the matches will be off the charts, but I don’t follow New Japan all that much and I prefer shows where I know the talents and what to expect without having to run to YouTube or Wikipedia every five minutes. I’ll do my predictions probably on Friday, but that’s more from habit than any other reason. I probably won’t watch.
Lio Rush says he hasn’t closed the door on an AEW return. Thoughts?
Lio ran his mouth and got fired from WWE. Lio ended up at AEW after screwing over New Japan with retirement or injury. I can’t remember for sure which one. He also screwed over MLW and Impact, didn’t he? And when with AEW, he crossed the boss and embarrassed Tony Khan and AEW with that whole Swole bit. He may not have closed the door, but I’m pretty sure AEW has, and if they haven’t, they should. Lio Rish belongs with Joey Ryan and Bog Swole, in the past and history, never to be seen again.
Bruce Pritchard has replaced John Laurinaitis as the Interim Head of Talent Relations for WWE. Good move by WWE or should someone else have the job?
Of all the people they could have picked, Bruce is absolutely the last one they should have chosen. He’s loyal to Vince. I get that, but he’s already the Executive Producer for both RAW and Smackdown. Does he need the extra responsibility? WWE would do better, in my opinion, to reach out to someone not in the company but with experience, like Tommy Dreamer, who previously held that position. Or hell, promote Jeff Jarrett, already the VP in charge of house shows, to the position. He owned TNA and has been involved in the business side of wrestling for over 30 years. He’s qualified. A.B.B. – anyone but Bruce. I wonder if Bischoff is available?
Should Gronk come back to WWE and form an alliance with Pat McAfee?
An alliance would be good, but if Gronk does come back, I’d much rather see him and McAfee have a rivalry, maybe a match or two. That’s where the money would be.
And there you go. My thanks for reading. Comments, thoughts, or any questions are welcome and appreciated. Until the next time, take care and be good, my friends. I’ll see you at the matches.
