Ultimate Wrestling Q&A
Saraya, Talent Cuts, Brother Love & More
May 25, 2023
Are you ready to talk wrestling? You have the questions and I have the answers. Nothing is off limits because this is truly the Ultimate Wrestling Q&A. Let’s do this.
Would you like to see Bruce Pritchard bring back his Brother Love character?
If it was for a special show like RAW 3000 or a Legend’s Show, sure. Brother Love was a fun character and entertaining. But in today’s more reality-based and serious WWE, that’s the only way that character should ever return.
Should AEW offer Super Huuman a contract? I’d love to see a Super Huuman versus Marko Stunt match.
Well, Marko isn’t with AEW anymore so I doubt that match could ever happen, at least not on the AEW stage. Maybe at one of the GCW events. As for Super Huuman, the guy has issues and is destroying his body with those crazy stunts. Offering him a contract would only encourage his stupidity while in reality, he’s his own worst enemy and needs to be stopped before he kills or permanently injures himself. He has no real training that I’m aware of and just enjoys the attention of jumping on stuff. No wrestling contracts for this guy ever, please. A padded room in a mental health facility would work better.
Rhea Ripley versus Awesome Kong. Who wins?
Kong in her prime against Ripley would be a fascinating match. Kong would give her the battle of a lifetime, but I think Rhea would end up getting the win.
When I tweet the name, Ric Flair, what’s the first thing that comes to mind?
Unfortunately, it’s that “last match” fiasco and how shameless and sad the once-legend has become. He’ll do anything for a buck and has no respect left for anyone or anything, especially his legacy or himself. Ric was one of the greatest wrestlers of all time, but now he’s just a drunken clown refusing to admit to reality and give up the life of “The Nature Boy”. Sad!
Magnum TA vs Bret Hart for the WWF Championship! Who Wins?
With both men in their prime, I think Bret would walk out with the win here. Magnum would take him to the limit and give The Hitman a helluva good match, but when the final bell rings, Bret would be the one to get his arm raised in victory.
Saraya said recently that WWE “held her back” during the last few years of her WWE career. Thoughts?
How did they hold her back? WWE paid her to do nothing. She wasn’t medically cleared to wrestle and had major issues going on in her personal life which had everyone wary of using her in important stories. Remember though that this is the woman who was signed to AEW, but then says that she didn’t expect to wrestle. Saraya is just talking to be talking, it seems, and trying to get some attention. I guess she’s been hanging out with Flair too much. She was paid very well to do nothing and her gravy train ended so now she’s making excuses and making herself the victim. At least that’s how I’m seeing this.
Who do you think should be on the commentary team for AEW Collision?
AEW has so many announcers and commentators under contract, it shouldn’t be hard to find a good team to handle the announcer duties for Collision. I would say remove Jim Ross from Dynamite and let him handle the announcer duties with Taz and Aiden English. Works for me.
WWE is reportedly expected to be making cuts to talent within the next six weeks. Who do you think will be wished well in future endeavors?
Unless something major changes, I think Bray Wyatt will be at the top of the list. And joining Bray will be his brother Bo Dallas, Angel Garza, Hit Row, Elias, Erik & Ivar, Humberto, Lacey Evans, and Apollo Crews. There will be many others from NXT and the Performance Center as well, but those are the most obvious big names.
Thoughts on Crazy Luke Graham?
I only had the opportunity to see Graham wrestle a couple of times, but do remember him more from the Apter Mags than anything else. A colorful and fun character has a decent promo and is terrible in the ring. He made Ox Baker look like Rick Steamboat by comparison. But he was entertaining and that’s all that mattered. He had a good career as one of the Graham Brothers, along with Eddie, Jerry, and Superstar Billy, and is truly one of the most memorable characters in wrestling.
Hulk Hogan says he would wrestle at WrestleMania 40 if Stone Cold Steve Austin agrees to do it. Hogan says he never had a retirement match. This would be the one. Thoughts?
Hogan says this, but he can’t move, can’t take any bumps due to repeated back surgeries, and has an ego the size of Asia. Would he be willing to take a loss in his “retirement match”? No, I don’t think so. Hogan is just talking to be talking and nothing more. There seems to be a lot of that going around these days. It’s just Hulk being Hulk and this match could never happen, brother!
And there you go. My thanks for reading. Comments, thoughts, and any questions are welcome and appreciated. And looking at the clock, I need to go so let’s wrap this up. Take care and stay well, my friends. Watch out for foreign objects and I’ll see you at the matches.
