Tossing Salt Presents:
Ultimate Wrestling Q&A
Booker T., Gimmick Battle Royal, Triple H & More
June 23, 2022
It’s time to just do it, the Ultimate Wrestling Q&A. Let’s get busy and go for it. And away we go.
What’s your favorite and least favorite moment where a wrestler was kicked out of a faction?
Both my favorite and least favorite involves the same Faction, the most elite faction of all time, the symbol of excellence, the Four Horsemen. The most favorite was when Ole, Ric, and Arn kicked Sting out. And the least favorite was when Ole, Arn, and Tully threw out Ole because Ole took offense at Tully’s comments about Ole’s “snot-nose kid”.
Masked Superstar & Paul Jones versus Edge & Christian. Who wins?
As good as Edge & Christian are, if you ever saw Jones and Superstar together in the early ’80s, working for Crockett, you already know. Jones and Superstar win.
If you could recreate the Gimmick Battle Royal from Wrestlemania 17 for this year’s SummerSlam, who would your match participants be?
Disco Inferno, Fandango, Scotty 2 Hotty, Rikishi, Repo Man, Brother Love, The Boogey Man, The Hurricane, Axel-Mania, Jamie Noble, Adam Bomb, The Blue Meanie, Stevie Richards, Gangrel, Marcus Alexander Bagwell, Scott Steiner, Kane, Great Khali, Rodney Mack, Chris Masters & Carlito.
Is the Last Man Standing stipulation in place as a way to get the titles off of Roman so he does not have to eat a legitimate clean pin and set him up for the potential match with the Rock at Wrestlemania?
I’m not sure if that’s the plan or not, but it makes sense. One of the belts, if not both, needs to be set free from the Tribal Chief to allow the WWE roster to have something to go after. To lose one of the belts, via a contractual loophole, to Brock at SummerSlam, and then go on to face Rock at Mania. Sounds like a plan. Book it, Vince.
Is WWE setting up a Pat McAfee feud with Happy Corbin? It sure seems that way.
It seems that way to me as well and to be honest, a match with McAfee versus Corbin would probably be very good. If that’s what WWE is planning, it sounds good to me.
Booker T’s comments about Adam Cole and his physical condition. Is Booker body-shaming or is he right?
It’s body-shaming more than it’s just being honest. Booker noted that Adam Cole needs to gain some weight and looks more like the manager of a video store than a professional athlete, and he’s right. I understand that wrestlers come in all shapes and sizes, but just compare how Cole looked while in WWE/NXT and the way he looks now. He’s not a big man, but while in WWE, he looked like an athlete. Now, he’s got the Dad-bod going on. It’s not body-shaming to point out the obvious. More weight and muscle protect the body from the assorted bumps and bruises that wrestlers take. Booker made some educated observations, nothing more. I don’t usually agree with Booker, but he’s right.
Triple H was at the Performance Center and allegedly told NXT that “I’m back!”. Thoughts?
I guess Steph did make a few demands to come in and save WWE’s ass by taking Vince’s spot. HHH back at the Performance Center and in charge of NXT? Sounds good to me.
And there you go. My thanks for reading. Comments, thoughts, and any questions you may have are welcome and appreciated. And with that, let’s close this up. Until the next time, take care and be good, my friends. I’ll see you at the matches.
