Tossing Salt Presents:
Ultimate Wrestling Q&A
Bunkhouse Stampede, Thunder Rosa, The Bellas & More
January 27, 2023
Do you have questions? I’ve got the answers. It’s the Ultimate Wrestling Q&A. Let’s do this.
The Mongolian Stomper vs GUNTHER. Who wins?
The Stomper was awesome in his day, but truthfully, he was rather one-dimensional in comparison to today’s wrestlers. GUNTHER is a future World Champion. GUNTHER wins.
Should WWE bring back the Bunkhouse Stampede?
The Bunkhouse Stampede was a hallmark event of WCW, created by Dusty Rhodes, where it essentially was a street fight mixed with a Battle Royal, where everyone wore street clothes, used weapons, and fought to eliminate their opponents from the ring to win a trophy shaped like a boot. It’s just different enough to be fun and interesting. I’d like to see it brought back.
Where are Christian and Luchasaurus? They seem to have vanished from AEW.
It’s just Tony Khan booking doing what Tony does. They’ve been forgotten and lost in the shuffle while their main rival, Jungle Boy Jack Perry, has been thrown into a makeshift tag team with Hook. Maybe we’ll see an eventual rivalry with ChristianSaurus versus JungleHook, but for now, Christian and Luchasaurus are just sitting back in catering, wondering how long it will take for Tony to remember they are still there.
Thunder Rosa says that she expects to be back on the road for AEW very soon. Thoughts?
Rosa is a good wrestler and entertaining so this is probably a good thing. I know that there is allegedly heat with Rosa and Britt Baker, Jamie Hayter, etc., but Rosa is also one of the few women on the AEW roster who doesn’t suck. I’ll be glad to see her back in the mix.
Elimination Chamber Match with one wrestler from WWE, AEW, Impact Wrestling, New Japan, the NWA, and NXT. Who are you picking and who wins?
Let’s make this as big as possible with Roman Reigns, Kenny Omega, Josh Alexander, Kazuchika Okada, Tyrus, and Bron Breakker. As for who wins, let’s go with the face of NXT, Bron Breakker.
Elimination Chamber Match with one wrestler from NWA, WCW, WWF, AWA, World Class, and ECW. Who are you picking and who wins?
For this one, we’d have Harley Race, Ric Flair, Bob Backlund, Larry Zbyszko, Kerry Von Erich, and Raven. and the winner? Let’s go with the Living Legend, Larry Zbyszko.
Elimination Chamber Match with women. One from the 80s, WWE Attitude Era, ECW, TNA Knockouts, AEW, and today’s WWE. Who are you picking and who wins?
How about Misty Blue Simms, Trish Stratus, Dawn Marie, Gail Kim, Dr. Britt Baker, and Asuka? And the winner is The Empress, Asuka.
The Bellas boycotted RAW XXX because they said that there was nothing for them to do and that the show ignored the Women’s Revolution and they weren’t allowed to mention Sasha Banks or Paige. Thoughts?
I can understand not being able to mention Paige or Sasha considering their current status with WWE. And yes, the WWE kind of dropped the ball by not giving the Women credit for what they’ve done over the past couple of decades. I can’t help but think if Stephanie hadn’t resigned a few weeks earlier, there would have been more representation by the ladies of WWE, past, and present. The Bellas weren’t happy and did their own thing instead. I get that but calling WWE out in the process, wasn’t quite right or smart in my opinion. I can’t help but wonder if HHH won’t remember this night the next time that someone brings up The Bellas for a story or appearance. I think he probably will.
Brock Lesnar versus Sid Vicious. Who wins?
It’s not even close. Brock wins.
Which gimmick do you like better for The Undertaker? The American Bad Ass or the Dead Man?
I prefer to see The Undertaker as the American Bad Ass. The supernatural “Dead Man” stuff was cool to a point, but the whole suspension of belief required takes some doing at times. Taker, as just the bad-ass biker dude, had far more of a legit feel to the character. Taker is awesome regardless of whatever role he is playing.
And there you go. My thanks for reading. Any comments, thoughts, or questions are welcome and appreciated. And with that, I’m out of here. Take care and be well, my friends. I’ll see you at the matches.
