Are you ready for some wrestling? It’s the Ultimate Wrestling Q&A. Let’s do this.

Ox Baker versus Thunderbolt Patterson. Who wins?

The in-ring action would stink, but the build would be fun to see. Ox with that menacing look and Thunderbolt with those promos that say absolutely nothing, but sound so good. As for who wins, I’d have to say T-Bolt, or else he’ll threaten to sue me for discrimination. He does that sometimes.

Rumors are that Drew McIntyre will be leaving WWE when his contract expires. Thoughts?

I keep hearing this and I really can’t blame Drew if it’s true. He had a great run with the company but seems to have been shoved down the roster and is more of an afterthought than anything else these days. Drew is a top guy and all the rumors say that WWE and he are far apart on what he feels he deserves as a paycheck. I don’t want to see Drew leave, but if he does, he’ll make major money with AEW and immediately get pushed as the guy there, and from a business perspective, that’s a solid move. No one can blame him for that.

Have you seen the new AEW Britt Baker shirt? Thoughts?

A t-shirt showing a woman that nobody knows with a big old black eye. What the hell are they thinking over at AEW? Can you imagine how this shirt will go over in a public setting that’s not AEW? I’ve seen it and my first thought was that woman didn’t do as she was told and got busted in the face as a result. Yeah, domestic violence. I know that’s not the intention, but that’s the perception that the shirt gives off. What the hell were they thinking? Simple. They weren’t.

Three-Way Elimination Match: The Steiner Brothers versus Abdullah the Butcher & Terry Funk versus Brian Pillman & Barry Windham. Who wins?

Abby & Funk would eliminate each other by miscommunication and then fight to the back in a bloody brawl. Windham and Pillman would make an interesting team, but they’re not going to beat the Steiners in a one-on-one fight. The Steiners win.

What happened to Action Andretti?

He’s chillaxing at Miro’s house, playing Uno with Anthony Ogogo, Scorpio Sky, Sonny Kiss, Ortiz, and Paige VanZant.

AEW has already hit the 50,000 tickets sold mark for their Wembley Stadium show in pre-sales. Thoughts?

It looks as if the Wembley Stadium show is going to be a sell-out and I’m happy for AEW. They have a great market in Europe and this is a major accomplishment for the company. Now if they can just get their domestic show’s attendance up and work on those television ratings.

What’s your honest opinion on Val Venis?

An entertaining wrestler with a fun, over-the-top gimmick, that worked well in WWE during the Attitude Era. And now, he’s a legalized pot manufacturer, a podcaster, and a bit of an outspoken whacko. I still like the character though and he was a good wrestler in his era. I was a Val Venis fan.

What if Magnum TA’s accident had never happened?

If Magnum hadn’t been in that accident that ended his career, I think we would have seen Magnum feud with Flair and get a good run as the World Champion. And later, after trading the belt with Flair a few times, we’d have seen Magnum take that trip up to New York and the WWF. Magnum was over and the booker for Crockett at the time, Dusty Rhodes, would eventually get jealous and start burying him in the booking. We may even have seen a Dusty versus Magnum feud as Dusty would keep trying to get the rub and hog the spotlight. But eventually, Magnum would have ended up in the WWF, become a mid-level talent for a few years because Vince “doesn’t get him”, and then fade away to a nice retirement.

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