And here we go with yet another edition of the Ultimate Wrestling Q&A. I’m still playing catch-up, but we’re getting through the backlog pretty quickly. Blah blah blah! It’s the Ultimate Wrestling Q&A. Let’s do this.

Which of the current underappreciated stars can you see being shot to superstar status under Triple H?

Finn Balor, Ciampa, and all of Triple H’s NXT darlings, like Kevin Owens, Asuka, Sami Zayn, etc. should see much improvement in their place on the roster and status.

Seeing as how Triple H is back in power and how NXT could also change according to his vision (NXT 1.0), could NXT be involved in the Survivor Series going forward?

I would say yes. NXT is a WWE brand and it would be fun to see Hunter’s former kids, the current disciples of HBK, Shawn Michaels, added to the mix. I would love to see all three brands represented.

How long should WWE wait before splitting the unified Universal World Championship? And how should they go about it?

I think the WWE and Universal Championship should be split back up to two different titles as soon as possible, most likely at the Castle premium live event coming up. As for how then go see the edition of the Ultimate Wrestling Q&A that I wrote earlier today where I addressed this very situation.

With Karrion Kross & Scarlett being back can you see them getting that main event push?

Kross has already had encounters with both Drew McIntyre and Roman Reigns, so I would say that the idea of Kross getting a huge push is highly likely.

Fairly simple, since Triple H has brought back Dakota Kai and Karrion Kross, the top 5 wrestlers he could bring back that have been released in the last 3 years?

The top 5 that I’d like to see some back are Bray Wyatt, Bo Dallas, Curtis Axel, Heath Slater, and Rusev.

What are some things you would like to see WWE do with Liv Morgan following the confusing booking decisions they’ve had for her since SummerSlam?

The main thing I would think that they need to do with Liv is have her wrestle on TV and win matches, convincingly. Have her face some enhancement talents or lower card ladies and win, not by a fluke, but with good wrestling and a clean finish. Enough wins and strong moments and the confusion and craziness that has thus far dominated her title reign would be forgotten about rather quickly by most of the fans. Book her strong and as a top female should be booked and the rest will work itself out.

MJF!…………………what do you think is actually going on?

It’s what Vince Russo would refer to as a worked-shoot that has gone on too long. I think some of the complaints that MJF may have are valid. but what he and Tony Khan have done is turn it into an angle that probably would have climaxed with MJF taking out Punk to capture the AEW Championship. But Punk got hurt and MJF seems to have been forgotten in the confusing aftermath. I have a feeling though that, after Punk & Moxley do their thing at the next PPV, All Out. Whoever wins, MJF returns and lays them out, and MJF goes back into the upper-card mix as he should be. At least I hope that’s how it works out.

What are your thoughts about Anna Jay joining the Jericho Apperception Society?

I don’t really have any thoughts on this, but I’m glad to see that AEW has found a role for Anna Jay to get some TV time and build her character.

Fatal-4-Way: The Funk Brothers vs Harlem Heat vs DOOM vs The Powers Of Pain. Who wins?

This would be one crazy and insane fight. Don’t forget that you’d also probably have Sherri Martel, Teddy Long, and Jimmy Hart outside the ring doing their thing as well as the eight monsters of men in the ring. As for who wins, I’d go with Dory and Terry Funk. Never bet against a Funk. They’ll funk you up!

Mickie James has apparently announced her retirement. Thoughts?

I’m hoping that this is an angle or storyline deal and not actually Mickie retiring, but if that is what she’s doing, I wish her the very best in whatever she chooses to do next. Mickie is a great talent, a true wrestling superstar whose love and passion for the business are evident in every move, word, or action she makes or says. She’s done it all and done it very well. I would love to see her do one more run with the WWE and maybe get a Ric Flair-style “last match” at Wrestlemania. And by the way, I’m talking about a farewell like Flair’s first one against HBK, not the fiasco that took place a couple of weeks ago. Mickie has always been one of the best in the business and if she truly is retiring, she will be missed.

And there you go. My thanks for reading. Any comments, thoughts, or questions you’d like to ask, just drop me a line and we’ll do it. Take care and be good, my friends. I’ll see you at the matches.
