Ultimate Wrestling Q&A: Reby Hardy, Drew McIntyre, Jon Moxley & More

Ultimate Wrestling Q&A
Reby Hardy. Drew McIntyre, Jon Moxley & More
March 7, 2023

Time only fears the pyramids and the legends of professional wrestling. It’s the Ultimate Wrestling Q&A. Let’s do this.

The Barbarian versus Jinder Mahal. Who wins?

The physical comparison between these two men is nearly equal. Barbarian is so strong but was mainly considered to be a tag team wrestler, primarily as one-half of the Powers of Pain. He never got the credit he was due. And Jinder, another huge muscle guy, did at least have one opportunity to hold the WWE Championship. He doesn’t get the credit he deserves either. This could be a fun match that could go either way. Most bookers would give the win to Jinder, but I’m not like most bookers. I’d have Barbarian catch Jinder with a surprise boot from the corner to get the win. Barbarian wins.

Reby Hardy allegedly wants a job with AEW, Thoughts?

With what, four small children, Reby probably doesn’t have the time to take a full-time job working for AEW, nor should Tony Khan hire her anyhow. Reby is very outspoken and at times, an absolute heat magnet. She says exactly what she thinks with no regard for the consequences and would, unfortunately, be a time bomb ready to explode. It wouldn’t be pretty. Reby in AEW is probably not a good idea.

Harley Race, Fabulous Moolah & Nick Bockwinkel versus Tyrus, Charlotte & Roman Reigns. Who wins?

My money would be on the old-school legends, the two men and women who paved the way. This would be an odd, yet fun match to see, but as for who wins, that is not even in doubt in the slightest. Harley, Nick, and Moolah take that trip to the pay window.

If Roman retains at Mania who is the most likely candidate to dethrone him?

If Roman gets past Cody, the logical choice would be to go full circle back to the beginning of the Bloodline story. The man who dethrones Roman as the champion? Jey Uso.

Honest thoughts about Drew McIntyre?

A big guy with lots of charisma and talent, who had a good run, and is a solid member of the roster in a near-the-top spot. I think that unfortunately, he’s peaked already, and much like his on/off partner Sheamus, his time as the face of the company is over. He’s got an amazing presence, but Drew is lightning in a bottle and I don’t think those moments of 2000 – 2021 can be captured again. I like Drew and he always can be counted on for a good match, but the thrill seems to be gone. I hope I’m wrong, but I don’t think so.

If Bob Ross were to paint you your favorite wrestling memory, what scene would he paint for you?

My favorite memory, wrestling-wise, was a car ride with Michael Youngblood & Ethan Storm from a show in Durham, NC many years ago. Without going into the whole story, a truly you-had-to-be-there moment, I can see the painting in my mind with two huge wrestlers, in a setting of happy little trees and birds, being asked by a man, “You’re not going to kill me, are you?”. It was a moment for the ages.

Do you think Jon Moxley will be bleeding before his match even starts at Revolution?

I didn’t watch AEW Revolution and it was two days ago, but from what I’ve read in the recaps and reviews, Moxley started bleeding about two minutes into the match and both he and Adam Page were wearing crimson masks by the end of the night. So to answer your question, I was assuming that Moxley would be getting a lot of juice in this match. And yes, he most definitely did.

Who is a better booker, Vince Russo or Tony Khan?

As much as it pains me to say this, Vince Russo gets the nod here. Russo at least had time for character development and stories in his car-crash world that was WCW. Tony can’t even manage to do that.

Fatal 4-Way Tag Team Match: The Main Attraction (Chris Steele & Scott Powers) versus The Atlantic Coast Destruction Crew (Ethan Storm & Taz Jackson) versus BD Productions (Derk Douglas & Brad Branson) versus The Young Bucks (Matt & Nick Jackson). Who wins?

The first three teams are, for those who don’t know, some of the great talents that wrestled regularly here in North Carolina among the strong Indy circuit over the past few years. The Main Attraction, Chris Steele & Scott Powers, were arguably one of the best teams of the late 80s and all through the 90s that you could ever see. BD Productions, aka Derk Douglas & Brad Branson, were two best friends who were trained by The Main Attraction and had great success living the dream. AC/DC? Two big men with attitude, determination, and the power to back it up. These are three damn good tag teams by anyone’s standards. And the final team? It’s the Young Bucks. This would be a phenomenal match and full of great action and controlled chaos. And the winners? Never bet against the Main Attraction.

Are you excited about Wrestlemania 39?

It’s slowly building up as the card develops. My excitement level isn’t all giddy and happy as of yet, but we’re getting there. It’s Wrestlemania, the biggest event of the year, so yes, the anticipation is building. I’m not “excited” yet, but it’s most definitely coming.

And there you go. My thanks for reading. Comments, thoughts, and any questions are welcome and appreciated. And with that being said, it’s time to wrap things up. Take care and be well my friends. Watch out for foreign objects and I’ll see you at the matches.
