Ultimate Wrestling Q&A
Danhausen, The Midnight Express, Jake Roberts & More
February 8, 2023

Let’s talk pro wrestling. It’s the Ultimate Wrestling Q&A. Let’s do this.

Danhausen is the top merchandise guy in AEW right now. So why doesn’t AEW use him more?

Use him for what? With a character like Danhausen, less is more. He’s mostly a comedy actor who is good in small doses. He draws fans, but the act gets old fast, and using him too much will expose his gimmick and destroy the character. In this case, AEW is using him just right.

There are a lot of rumors that Jim Cornette and the Midnight Express will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame this year. Thoughts?

It is long overdue and well deserved. The Midnights is one of the greatest teams of all time and Cornette, as their manager, was amazing in his role as well. I hope the rumors are true. They deserve the honor.

Seth Rollins versus Randy Savage. Who wins?

Whoever the promoter wants to win of course. This one could go either way and it would not be an upset or surprising. I think Macho would end up taking the trip to the pay window though with a hard-fought win at the end.

Jake Roberts: “Flair and Michaels were great, don’t get me wrong, but are they the best of all time? God, no. I would honestly put Kenny Omega above both of them.” – Agree or disagree?

I don’t agree, but I’m not a fan of Omega anyhow. What he does is not wrestling, but gymnastics with his friends. I can understand where Snake is coming from though. Omega is an EVP for AEW and AEW pays his salary so…

Who are the best wrestlers, that never wrestled/worked for the WWF/WWE?

Off the top of my head, I’d go with The Andersons Ole & Gene), Bobby Eaton, the guys from C.A.G.E. and ACW here in the Carolinas, Sammy Love, Angel Angels, Ethan Storm, etc., and Gino Hernandez.

Lita is back in WWE and saved Becky from Bayley and DAMAGE CTRL. So are we looking at a six-woman tag for the Elimination Chamber? If so, who do you think Becky & Lita’s partner will be?

It sure seems that we’ll be having a match at the Elimination Chamber with Lita and Becky taking on DAMAGE CTRL. And if they need a third partner, who else but Trish Stratus?

GUNTHER says that he wants to wrestle Brock Lesnar. Would you like to see this match happen at Wrestlemania?

I would love to see this match happen. Let’s just hope that Triple H feels the same way. Book it, HHH!

Just found out MLW is airing on the Reelz channel starting Tuesday at 10 pm with another episode to follow at 11. So let’s see, Raw on Monday, NXT and MLW on Tuesday, Dynamite on Wednesday then Impact Thursday, and SmackDown and Rampage Friday. Is it overkill? When we were kids we dreamed of this, I know I did but is it overkill? Oh, almost forgot NJPW is following Impact on Thursday. Is it overkill though?

And don’t forget Women of Wrestling, the NWA, and all the Premium Live Events too. Yes, there is a lot of wrestling out there these days, but is it overkill? There seems to be an audience for it. The thing to do is pick and watch what you like, and follow the rest that you don’t have time to see online. Overkill? Too much wrestling? There is no such thing.

Austin Theory recently said in an interview that Brock Lesnar don’t want none of Dom Mysterio. Thoughts?

I agree. Prison changes a man and Dom did hard time for nearly an hour or so. Brock may be The Beast Incarnate, but Dom is a survivor and a changed man. Brock don’t want none.

And there you go. My thanks for reading. Comments, thoughts, and any questions are welcome and appreciated. And with that being said, I’m out of here. Take care, my friends, and stay well. Watch out for foreign objects. I’ll see you at the matches.
