Tossing Salt Presents:
Ultimate Wrestling Q&A
Guest Hosts, Muhammad Hassan, Sonya Deville & More
December 10, 2022
It’s Saturday morning and I’m awake far too early. How about a little of the Ultimate Wrestling Q&A to start the day off well? Let’s do this.
Hell In A Cell Match. Bruiser Brody & Stan Hansen versus The Road Warriors. Who wins?
I doubt the cage, even that cage, would hold these four men in the ring. It would be epic and I expect that there would be lots of blood flowing and mayhem would rule the day. If this was in the United States, the Road Warriors would win. If this was taking place in Japan, the victory would go to Hansen and Brody. And if I was the booker man, I’d give it to Brody and Hansen as well.
Let’s settle this… Greatest AWA World Champion of ALL TIME?
Nick Bockwinkle. No doubt about it.
Do you think War Games could work with an elimination format similar to Survivor Series?
How would that work? Everyone comes in one at a time to get into the ring and then War Games starts and then everyone is eliminated one by one until there is just one survivor. That sounds like Vince Russo’s booking to me and would essentially destroy everything that was special about the War Games match, to begin with. It wouldn’t work.
Would you like to see WWE bring back the “Guest Hosts” era?
While it was certainly an interesting time in the history of WWE and made for some entertaining moments, let’s just leave that one in the past. While having the occasional guest celebrity who is just there as a guest who just happens to interact with the wrestlers could be okay, the whole concept of Guest Hosts is played out and kind of sucked. Thanks for the memories, but no thanks.
Do you think ECW was considered a territory?
In some ways, it could fit that description, but I don’t think the label “territory” gives it nearly the credit it deserves. Mid-South and World Class were territories. ECW was something more. Far more.
Should a Roman versus Rock match at Wrestlemania be for the WWE/Universal Championship or should it just be for the title of Tribal Chief and Head of the Table?
With two stars like Roman and The Rock, I really don’t think it matters why they’re wrestling. It doesn’t matter if it’s a Championship, for leadership of the family, or just for the best seat after the show at Waffle House, if it’s The Rock and Roman, it’s a Wrestlemania Dream Match and should be treated as such.
What if Muhammad Hassan wasn’t written off television by WWE?
It was a great gimmick and character and Mark Copani was doing an excellent job with his role, but if the story had continued after Hassan and his masked goons carried off The Undertaker, it would have been a fun few months, and then Vince would have gotten bored and Copani would have been relegated to being part of the mid-card for the next two years before leaving WWE for a career on the Indy circuit.
Which wrestler had the better comeback match? Saraya, Bryan Danielson, or Edge?
Definitely Edge. Saraya’s match against Dr. Britt Baker was sloppy and totally forgettable, while I can’t even remember what Danielson’s first match back from retirement was and who it was against. Edge though had his first match back after all those years, showing up at the Royal Rumble before fighting and defeating Randy Orton in a Last Man Standing Match at Wrestlemania 36.
Sonya Deville recently tweeted that “I want to wrestle.” Thoughts on Deville and what should WWE do to use her more?
Deville is a very talented performer with a solid background in MMA and is also a good talker and a great heel character. Her not being used regularly on WWE television is a shame. I guess there are only so many top spots available and Deville just doesn’t have the right person in Triple H’s ear to promote her. I would suggest having her go down to NXT for a bit to work with her real-life best friend, Mandy Rose, as a spokesperson and enforcer to help Rose fend off her challengers for the NXT Women’s Championship. Rose doesn’t really need her, but it’s better than spending every Monday and Friday night sitting in catering eating the chicken salad.
What does management see in Hit Row? I just don’t see the point of them being in WWE.
My guess is that Triple H is just trying to appeal to a certain demographic and maybe he likes their stereotypical racist gimmick, but to be honest, I don’t see or understand why they’re there either. Swerve Strickland was the only thing good about this team in NXT and he’s working for AEW now. The rest of the group does absolutely nothing for me and doesn’t belong on the main WWE roster, or even in wrestling in my opinion. I’m sure that WWE has its reasons, but I can’t figure out what they are.
And there you go. My thanks for reading. Comments, thoughts, and any questions you may have are welcome and appreciated. And with that, it’s time to call it a day. Until the next time, take care and be well, my friends. Watch out for foreign objects and I’ll see you at the matches.
