Tossing Salt Presents:
Ultimate Wrestling Q&A
AEW in the UK, The Guerreros, Triple H & More
April 6, 2023
I’m still playing catch-up with all the questions that have flooded my inbox over the past few days. Thank you to everyone who’s asked a question or sent comments. It is much appreciated. And now, let’s get busy. It’s the Ultimate Wrestling Q&A. Let’s go.
Ole & Gene, The Anderson Brothers versus Jack & Jerry Brisco. Who wins?
This is a match that probably happened dozens of times back in the late 70s, but I’m sure it was a tag team classic every single time. They probably split the victories with the Briscos going over at most of the house shows, but if I’m doing the booking, The Minnesota Wrecking Crew would be the ones to take that trip to the pay window. The Andersons would win.
Bushwacker Butch Miller passed away a few days ago. Thoughts & memories of this legendary Sheepherder.
I remember seeing the Sheepherders a few times when they made some spots for Crockett in the early 80s, but my main familiarity with them came from the Apter Mags, where they were shown to be brutal badasses who were tough as nails and could go with anyone. And then they came to the WWF as The Bushwackers. It was a major change from what I had seen before, but despite the goofiness, they were always entertaining. Butch, from everything I’ve read and heard, was a great guy and his legacy as a great entertainer will never die or be forgotten. RIP Butch Miller. You will be missed.
Do you like Sammy Guevara as a face or heel?
Sammy is one of those guys who I like but would prefer to see him play the heel. He has that face you want to punch and he and Tay are a great, obnoxious heel couple. He’s a likeable guy via The Vlog and appearances, but he’s more marketable as a heel by far.
Jay White is All Elite. Thoughts?
This was probably the best move for his career where he can get a few months of a strong push and a nice paycheck before being lost in the shuffle and forgotten. The situation at WWE right now, especially with the pending sale to Endeavor, plus the confusion over who is running things, Triple H or Vince, probably wouldn’t be a great environment to walk into as a new guy.
Tony Khan announced that AEW All In will be in Wembley Stadium in the UK in August. Thoughts?
This is a huge event and announcement for AEW and an announcement worthy of the hype that Tony tried to build. I’m happy for AEW as this is a large step for the company and it will be interesting to see how things go.
Nigel McGuinness is All Elite. Thoughts?
Nigel is a good announcer with a great history in ROH so going to AEW/ROH and becoming part of the announce team there is probably a good move. I’m happy for him.
Sherilyn Guerrero, the daughter of Eddie and Vickie Guerrero, has taken to social media to allege sexual assault from Vickie’s husband, Kris. Have you seen this? Thoughts?
This is a sad situation and it sucks to see it all being played out in public like this. I don’t know the details, nor do I want to. I’ve seen several members of the Guerrero family weighing in and I just hope that they can all find a way to solve their issues, get counseling where needed, and find a way to come together as a family.
If Endeavor doesn’t keep Paul Levesque in charge, what does he do next?
If Endeavor does end up wishing Triple H well in his future endeavors, I would hope that he would go to someone with a large budget, NBC Universal perhaps, and put together a promotion of his own. Triple H is too good as a booker to just fade off into the sunset and whatever the future holds, I hope that he remains able to help keep the business strong for many years to come.
What is your dream match for ‘AEW All In’ in London?
That is really too far away to speculate on for now, but I’ll throw one out there. How about a special challenge match with The Elite (Kenny Omega, The Young Bucks, Adam Cole) taking on Sammy Guevera’s VLOG Crew (Sammy, Alan Angels, Fuego Del Sol, and Griff Garrison) and surprise, the VLOG Crew win after Tay Melo & Negative One cause a distraction and whack Omega across the knees with a steel pipe. That’d be a fun dream for me.
Triple H will be on #SmackDown tomorrow night to address the WWE Universe. What do you think he’s going to say?
Most likely, it’s just to reassure the fans that WWE won’t change after the merger with Endeavor and that he’s still the boss. I also expect to see a big plug for the upcoming Backlash event coming to Puerto Rico. Wouldn’t it be nice to see Triple H either split the WWE/Universal Championship titles back into two different belts again? I’m thinking he’ll be announcing a rematch with Cody and Roman for Backlash as well, or since Brock got involved, maybe a Triple Threat 2 out of 3 falls with both belts at stake. Okay, that’s just wishful thinking, but I’m sure that offering assurance to the fans and promoting Backlash will be on his agenda Friday night.
And there you go. My thanks for reading. Comments, thoughts, and any questions are welcome and appreciated. And with that, it’s time to wrap things up. Take care and be well, my friends. I’ll see you again very soon with more stuff. Watch out for foreign objects and I’ll see you at the matches.
