Wrestling Q&A – June 26. 2017

Wrestling Q&A
CM Punk, Kliq vs Horsemen
June 26, 2017

Good late in the evening, my friends. I was starting to get ready for bed when I suddenly remembered that I had a “Wrestling Q&A” laid out to be filled in and completed for the site. I meant to do this earlier, but my heterosexual life mate / BFF and I went out to placate a beaver this afternoon and I never had the chance. So here it is, slightly after midnight and I’m going to try and knock this out before I go crawl into that bed and catch a few hours of sleep. I’ve got to be up extremely early in the morning for what I call a “Triple Threat Monday”, which consists of a trip to Southern Pines for an appointment, doing my volunteer job at the Food Bank and then working in the afternoon at the ABC until closing, so I’m going to need to get my rest tonight. It surely isn’t happening tomorrow. Anyhow, the questions come from the KoK group on Facebook and one from the baddest man on the planet, my brother K-Mak. The answers come from me. And that attitude comes from life in the streets. Let’s do this…

Donnie asks, “CM Punk is a HOFer.. True or False?”

Multiple time WWE Champion. ROH Champion. UFC Fighter. The master of the “Pipe Bomb”. One of the most recognizable and controversial personalities in WWE history and of the last ten years. Married to former Diva AJ Lee and current MTV reality TV star. It goes without saying, a definitive YES. The Hall of Fame, be it the WWE or some other like the Pro Wrestling Hall of Fame in Texas, is definitely in Punk’s future and is well deserved.

Chrissy asks, “If you could have a one night stand with any wwe superstar or diva who would you choose?? Mine would be Big Cass. I would love to climb that tree.”

Big Cass is a good pick. Have you noticed the size of his nipples? Damn, they’re huge. As for myself, for years, my answer would be either Lisa “Ivory” Moretti or Juventud Guerrera. Ivory is the only woman I would definitely go straight for and Juvi… well, he’s “the Juice” and sexy as hell. But times change and I’ve gotten a little older and a little wiser and Ivory has retired and even Juvi is starting to show his age a bit. I’d still do him in a heartbeat though, but he’s not what he was. I think, right now, my ultimate one night stand with a WWE Superstar would be Finn Balor. Let’s see what kind of Demon he can bring to the table. or bedroom as the case may be.

Scott asks, “How about an annual Eddie Guerrero Classic Cruiser Weight Tournament?”

That would be cool as hell, but I don’t really think of Eddie as a Cruiserweight. I guess, technically, he was, but that’s not how I remember him best. Regardless, any kind of tribute to Eddie, be it a tournament, a memorial event or whatever, would definitely be welcome.

Scotty asks, “For the people who are mainly WWE fans, like myself, who is your favorite wrestler not in WWE?”

He’s a former WWE star and currently working for Impact Wrestling and Global Force Wrestling, so I’m not sure if he qualifies, but Chris Masters, aka Chris Adonis. The man has gotten so much better since his WWE days and he’s sexy as fuck too. Aside from Masters, the best talents I’ve ever seen that were NOT WWE superstars were here in the local ACW brand. I’m talking about Ethan Storm, the team of Chris Steele and Scott Powers, aka “The Main Attraction” and my buddies Brad & Derk, aka B.D. Productions. And the best day in and day out that was not ACW, but all over the south-eastern US and all across the world, and soon to be back in that ring, Mike Youngblood.

K-Mak says, “My question is why will you just not admit the Kliq is truly better than the Horsemen?”

Because I’m not delusional. The Kliq is a dominant group and made some major impact, but they are not The Horsemen. The Horsemen were the first, the toughest, the biggest and baddest and simply, the very best. Without the formation of Ole, Arn, Tully, Ric and J.J. as a unit in the NWA, there would probably have never been a Kliq, or DX, or Evolution or the nWo. The Horsemen set the standard and made the blueprints that all of the groups that came later followed. The Kliq’a influence as a unit was more backstage and political than as an actual wrestling faction. The Horsemen, while definitely playing the politics to be sure, made their most memorable impact inside that ring, day in and day out, putting on the best matches, the main events, putting butts in those seats and stealing the show, night after night after night. The Kliq, especially HBK in those days, was damn good. Razor was damn good. HHH was good and eventually became great. Nash was, well, he’s Nash. But in the final reel, as good as the Kliq was, Diamonds are forever and so are the Four Horsemen. ‘Nuff said!

Justin says, “Name a wrestler you think is underrated and it can be in any wrestling company.”

Two that immediately come to mind for me are from TNA and really could be used so much better. One is Matt Morgan. He’s seven feet tall and a damn good performer. WWE had him and made him into a stuttering fool. Impact didn’t know how to use him properly either. Just a big guy who could be so much more if just given the opportunity and right push. And the other is Zema Ion. I look at this man and why he’s not in NXT or the WWE Cruiserweight Division, I just can’t figure it out. He’s got the character, the looks, the charisma and he can go in that ring. He’s money waiting to be made and while I think Impact gets it to a point, there is so much potential there. And WWE would be stupid to not take a look at this kid when the chance comes up. He’s going to be really big one day. He just needs the right chance and opportunity. Mark my words.

And there you go. I think this is enough for tonight. Time to try to go to bed and get a little sleep. Thanks for reading. Questions for the Q&A’s and comments / thoughts are welcome. I’m out of here. Have a great night.

Facebook Q&A – June 25, 2017

Tossing Salt Presents:
Facebook Q&A
Clones, Social Media and Porn
June 25, 2017

Greetings, salutations and how the hell are you? It’s Sunday afternoon and I’m just sitting here in front of the computer, bored out of my mind. It kind of makes me wish I had a life or some friends, but that would actually involve inviting actual people into my little bubble and well, let’s be honest here. People suck! I prefer cats… or squirrels. Just kidding. I do like some people, especially when they’re covered in honey and cheerios. But I think I was drunk so what do I know. Hell, I’m drunk right now. (Not really, but some of my blogs would make more sense if that was actually the case.) I haven’t too long been off of Facebook and guess what I found over there? Recipes, cat pictures, drama, political ramblings, more drama, gossip and innuendo, nude pics of Justin Beiber and people spilling their guts about anything and everything. Wait a moment, that wasn’t Facebook. That was my blog. Oops, my bad. Or was that my dating profile for “Christian Singles”?

One thing that I did see a great deal of on Facebook was questions. And I like to answer questions. Well, except for the ones asked to me by police officers. Where the po-po are involved, just call me Sgt. Shultz. “I know nothing! Nothing!”. Snitches end up with stitches and in ditches, right? And what the hell was I talking about anyhow? Pepsi Fire is nasty, disgusting and tastes like what I would expect Satan’s urine to taste like, but not nearly as salty. I think I’ll answer a few questions I found over the “The Book!” in the Nameless group. Enjoy…

Gregory asks, “If you had to pick an actor to narrate your life. Who would it be??”

I would say Morgan Freeman, but he seems to be too busy narrating everything else in existence and probably wouldn’t have the time. Samuel L. Jackson would be good too, but I don’t think his strong use of the word “mother f*cker” would be what my story needs. My life is more of a “Aww Shit!”, than “mother f*cker”. This is actually hard since I’m trying to think of who has a great voice, could make everything seem larger than life and make my life sound interesting without over-doing it, plus I actually like or respect. The late, great Alan Rickman, who played Snape in the Harry Potter movies would be great, but since he’s dead now, that could be a problem. How about CM Punk? He could just do the narration and then, at the end, just go “pipe bomb”. Yeah, that’d work.

Van asks, “What’s the weirdest porno video you’ve ever seen?”

Well, there was that one with the three gay midgets, the wheelchair hanging from the ceiling, the tub of Fruit Loops and the Koala bear in that motel room at Pine Acres. That was pretty wild. Oh wait, the question said “seen” and not “took part in”. Oops. My bad. I think the Batman versus Superman XXX gay parody video might qualify. Or “One Night In Chyna” starring Chyna and X-Pac. That movie destroyed my faith in porn for a long long time.

Van asks, “Is it appropriate for people in relationships to be in sex groups on social media? Why or why not? Would you have a problem with your significant other being in one?”

That would depend on the people and what they and their partner feel. Some people like to flirt or admire the beauty of others, but would never dream of being unfaithful to their significant other. And others are just ho’s and looking for that next piece of ass. For myself, if I’m in a solid and committed relationship with someone,, I think I would have a problem if they spent all of their free time talking shit to other guys and flirting with other guys on social media. I would feel that I’m not good enough in their eyes and they’re looking for someone else. Of course, that’s all because of an issue with an ex where he was doing exactly that, out trying to f*ck everything that moved, all the while living here with me. I was in love with him and he was a total piece of shit and lowlife skum. Sexy as hell with a great ass, but that was the only good quality, as I eventually found out. So my views on this topic are obviously biased. Burn in hell, Haney! I can’t say if it’s appropiate or not. That depends upon the couple and their relationship. I wouldn’t like it though.

Leelah asks, “If you’re a gay kid and you hear someone you love say ‘fag,’ does it make you think that in their eyes you’re just a fag too?”

Depends upon the person, the manner in which they’re using the term, and the context. I don’t particularly like it, but I’ve got a thick skin and with 99.995% of the times I’ve heard that particular word used, I just consider the source and ignore it, letting it go. Or I might make a smart ass comment, making them uncomfortable and apologetic. For myself though, I really could care less. In the end though, it’s just a word and words only can have power over someone or hurt you if you let them and I don’t. It’s all about the context and if it is being used as an insult, meant to be insulting and demeaning, then I’ll take it into account and react accordingly. But if it’s just part of the dialogue, meant to be funny or not as a real insult, but more of a tasteless, yet playful banter, that has to be taken into consideration too. It all depends upon the person and the context as to what the proper reaction should or will be.

Kevert asks, “If a person in your life that you loved died (friend, family, so on) and someone cloned that person, could you love them the same as the original?”

Nope. It might be a clone of that person, but it wouldn’t be the same person where it matters, in the soul and mind and life experiences, etc. It’s just a physical copy, nothing more and nothing less. The things that really matter, what make you love a person, is the relationship that you have with the person, the sense of humor, the life experiences and memories, the way they talk, move, smell, act in certain situations, etc. None of that can be cloned and while the clone may be similiar in some ways, it wouldn’t be the real deal or the original. It could never be the same.

And that’s it for now. Enough questions for today. I may be back later on to do some Wrestling Q&A, but that’s not for sure. Feeling bad here and my head is starting to pound. Getting old and falling apart sucks! Not as badly as that Pepsi Fire crap, but it’s still pretty damn annoying and a bitch to deal with. I think I need some drugs. I’ll go drink some water and lay down instead. Thanks for reading and I’ll catch you on the flip side. Take care my friends…

Wrestling Fact or Fiction – June 25, 2017

Tossing Salt Presents:
Wrestling Fact or Fiction
June 25, 2017

Well, I tried to sleep. I really, really did. My eyes were heavy and the bed was so comfortable. My fan was blowing and I could feel the darkness of peaceful slumber begin to overtake me… and then my eyes popped open. My mind was going a million miles a second, over a thousand different scenarios. And I knew then, it was time to get up. Sleep would not be visiting me tonight. So here I am now, at nearly 3:00 in the AM, sitting in front of the computer. The sounds of Sammy Davis Jr. are blasting through my earphones. And I’ve got wrestling on the mind. It’s time to do that weekly “Wrestling Fact or Fiction” thing. And since I’m already up, it may as well be now.

As per usual, the questions that I’m commenting on come from my good, close and personal friends that I’ve never met in my life, over at 411mania.com/wrestling. And the answers and statements, deciding if I agree (fact) or not (fiction) come from me. Are you ready to do this? I am so…

1. You have no issue with how Carmella won MITB.

FACT: I thought it was a great move that instantly transformed Carmella from an afterthought to a top star in the Smackdown Women’s Divsion. So what if Ellsworth climbed the ladder and tossed the briefcase to Carmella. Everyone admits that it’s not against the rules, since there are essentially no rules in a ladder match, and even if it was, so what? Carmella and James Ellsworth are heels and they did the ultimate heel move. Good for them.

2. WWE made the right call by having Mike & Maria Kanellis skip NXT.

FACT: Maria and Mike Bennett don’t need to do the NXT routine. Maria spent many years as part of the WWE and is well aware of all of the finer details of what is expected on the main roster. The WWE fans already know her too and she’s too recognizable a character for WWE to waste in the minor leagues. Most new additions to the WWE roster should go through NXT first. I agree with that, but there are exceptions to every rule. Maria and Mike are the exceptions.

3. The build to Brock Lesnar vs. Samoa Joe has been excellent.

FACT: Brock looks like a monster, as usual. Joe looks like a monster too who can really take Brock to the limit. It’s really being built really well as a match between two men who are truly dangerous and ready to fight. Nothing can be taken for granted here, except for it should be a brutal and very physical brawl and one helluva match. For this match, the WWE has finally done everything right.

4. While Raw’s angle, featuring Big Cass turning heel on Enzo was really good, it leaves the Raw tag team division in shambles.

FICTION: While this angle takes Cass and Enzo from the mix, we still have The Hardys, the Champions in Cesaro & Sheamus, Anderson and Gallows, The Revival, The Titus Brand, Slater & Rhyno and possibly even Bo Dallas & Curtis Axel under the direction of the Miz. Looks like plenty of tag teams to me.

5. You are 100% behind Shelton Benjamin returning to WWE.

FACT: Why not. He’s a damn good wrestler, an instant top mid-card level star who can work face or heel, and someone who can have a great match against almost anyone. This is a no-brainer. If he comes back, it’d be awesome.

6. After a short feud with Big Cass, WWE should move Enzo to 205 Live.

FICTION: Enzo’s biggest talent is his mouth. He could go to 205 Live, but I don’t really see his in-ring ability or character really mixing well with the other Cruiserweights on Tuesday night. He could be better used as either a spokesman or manager for another wrestler or maybe as part of a new tag team to work the mid-card. Maybe even use Enzo as an announcer or give him a talk-show type segment. They’ll hopefully figure out something for the “Certified G and Bonifide Stud”, but I don’t think that 205 LIve should be or will be it.

And that’s all for now. I think I’m going to go watch a movie now or something. The new GLOW series is on Netflix and I want to see it so that’s probably what I’m going to do next. As for this, thanks for reading. Questions and comments are welcome and appreciated. And with that, I am gone. Have a great night and I’ll catch you on the flip side. Have a great one.

Pepsi Fire – Review

Tossing Salt Presents: Review

Pepsi Fire

June 24, 2017

 

I had the opportunity… no, let’s change that. I had the misfortune to have the opportunity to sample the newest product available from Pespi Cola yesterday. I am, of course, talking about the new Pespi Fire. And well, how do I say this politely? It freakin’ sucks! Anyone who knows me well knows that I love my Pepsi. Doesn’t matter if it’s regular, diet, Cherry, caffeine free, or whatever. If it’s Pepsi, I like it, I drink it and I enjoy it. And this new stuff, with it’s cinnamon flavor, I actually threw half a bottle away. I couldn’t handle it. it was that bad. To put it in perspective, that’s like Midas throwing away gold. That’s like CNN throwing away a scandalous story about Trump. That’s like Kayne throwing away an opportunity to steal the spotlight at an awards show. It doesn’t happen… until now.

How do I describe the taste? It’s like Satan spit into a bottle, added some heartache, bad memories and a major pain in the ass and stirred. Then a little despair and agony are mixed in for that extra kick and there you have it, but not nearly as tasteful or delicious. It’s just plain bad. It kind of reminds me of Fireball Whiskey, which I love, but it’s as if the Fireball has been watered down badly and all of the goodness (aka alcohol) was sucked out and replaced with hydrogen perixode.

So if you see it, admire the nice bottle. It’s pretty. And maybe even buy a bottle or can if you want, for nostalgia reasons since it’s limited edition. But if you’re looking for something to drink, three words for you. “DON’T DO DAT!”… You have been warned.

And now, I’m out of here. I have to get back to work. Thanks for reading and I’ll catch you on the flip side.

Music Fact or Fiction – June 24, 2017

Music Fact or Fiction
June 24, 2017

I can’t sleep. I hate it when that happens. Way too much on my mind and the past can be a total bitch sometimes. No, I’m not going to elaborate on that. Not yet. That’s a blog for another time. As for now, it’s time to listen to the music and do that weekly “Music Fact or Fiction” thing I sometimes do. The statements I’ll be looking at come from my friends over at 411mania.com/music. And the rest of it, my agreement (Fact) or lack of agreement (Fiction), that’s all me. Let’s just do this. I need to go to bed.

There’s no point in changing how to write JAY-Z’s name.

FACT: Jay Z. has decided that he wants his name to be in all caps now and has changed it, sort of. I don’t care. He’s Jay Z. to me and will always be Jay Z. to me, regardless of how he decides he wants to spell it. Changing the name a hundred times didn’t do much for Sean Combs, except for make him look like a schitzo idiot and confuse his loyal fans (both of them). This crap with Jay Z will probably have the same effect, aka, not a damn bit.

Chad Kroeger was off-base in his comments about Stone Sour and Slipknot.

FACT: I had to look up who Chad Kroeger was (from Nickelback) and then I had to look up what he said about Stone Sour and Slipknot. He called Stone Sour “Nickelback Light”. That’s crazy and hilarious because their sounds and styles are very different. And to say that Slipknot isn’t any good because they “put on masks and jump around”. They also have some damn good songs and put on a helluva good show. Kroeger needs to loosen up and quit believing his own hype. He comes across as jealous and petty as hell to me, so yes, to say his comments were “off base” is an understatement to be sure.

Lionel Richie would be a good choice to judge American Idol.

FACT: He’s been around forever, has written, produced and performed hit after hit after hit song. He was one of the principal parties behind the “We Are The World” super-hit. He’s freakin’ Lionel Richie. If Idol can get him, they need to do so. He would be a great choice to help judge, guide and teach contestants on Idol. This is a no-brainer for sure.

You don’t expect Ted Nugent to stick to his word about his violent rhetoric.

FICTION: I expect that so long as the liberals and pro-Obama crowd leave Ted alone, he’ll try and mind his P’s and Q’s. I think he’s sincere about wanting to try to tone it down a bit with the mudslinging and namecalling and all of that. I’m also pretty sure that the left will try and try to push his buttons to get a reaction from the “Motor City Madman”. I think his intentions are sincere. Now let’s see how long that it all lasts.

The new Queens of the Stone Age song “The Way You Used To” is impressive.

FICTION: It’s okay and doesn’t suck, but it’s not really anything special to me. So “impressive”? Nah, I don’t think so.

You’re excited by the news of a new Foo Fighters album.

FACT: The Foo Fighters are a good band and everything they put out a new album, it generally exceeds expectations. They’re not Alice Cooper, but then again, who is (except for Alice himself, right?). I’m pretty sure that I’ll like the new album and listen to it many, many times before burning myself out on it and putting it to the side to be then listened to only randomly for the next several years. The Foo Fighters… Fighting Foo everywhere and making the world safe for humanity. I think this new album will be damn good.

And there you go with another edition of Music Fact or Fiction in the books. Questions and comments are welcome and appreciated. Thanks for reading. And now, I’m headed to bed. Have a great night and I’ll catch you on the flip side.

Wrestling Q&A – June 22, 2017

Tossing Salt Presents:
Wrestling Q&A
June 22, 2017

It’s Thursday evening and I’ve totally wasted the entire day and damn if it didn’t feel good. I never left the house at all, just going back and forth from my bed in that nice, cool dark room and here to my computer to watch movies. Oh yeah, I did do an “Opposing Views” piece earlier today and washed two loads of clothes. I guess that the day wasn’t totally wasted then. It’s time now to come back to reality, if you can call it that, and do some of this wrestling stuff. I looked at the KOK and at the Jim Crockett Facebook groups and there were lots of questions posted. And now, I’m going to answer them because it’s a Dougie thing and what I do. So enough chit chat. Let’s do this…

Anita asks, “Now that Maryse and Miz are breaking up, what do you think will be next for Maryse?”

Whatever she wants. I don’t think that we’ve seen the last of Miz and Maryse as a couple on WWE television. When Miz needs a secret weapon, she’ll be back. But until then, I expect we’ll see a lot of behind the scenes promotional work, some stirring the pot on “Talking Smack”, and maybe even a return to the ring. Maryse was actually quite good in the ring when she wrestled regularly and the Raw Women’s Division needs something or someone added to kick it up a notch and into a higher gear. Maryse may be just what they need.

LeVar says, “Is it just me, or does it seem like this whole 2nd Money in the Bank match is just a bit so subtle back peddle over the backlash from last Sunday. If Vince would just stick to his guns and not worry so much about the investors they would have had a heel with serious heat you couldn’t buy.”

I don’t think it’s a result of the backlash at all, but more likely exactly what they had planned to begin with. Wrestling fans are generally easy to predict when it comes to booking and so far, this has been great for ratings and in getting people to talk. The whole original finish, with Ellsworth climbing the ladder and getting the briefcase for Carmella generated massive heel heat and pulled Carmella and Ellsworth from the bottom of the Women’s Division to the top of the food chain. And can you imagine the heat now if Carmella manages to win again next Tuesday? Or if she does, as I suggest, and brings in her “lawyers” and challenges the WWE decision, resulting in a possible one on one MITB Ladder Match against another woman for the briefcases, perhaps at Summerslam. This angle put Carmella on the map and is getting people talking and no matter how it plays out, it’s been good for the WWE and the women of Smackdown Live. I don’t think it’s a response to the backlash, but instead going exactly as planned. WWE does that sometimes.

Steve wants to know, “Will Ambrose ever win the World title again?”

Most likely, but it won’t be anytime soon. Since his previous run as the WWE Champion, Ambrose has lost a lot of momentum and has fallen down the card and roster a lot. He’s only one or two matches and a good storyline away from getting back into the main event picture and title contention, but he needs to up his game a bit and get that mojo back first.

Steve asks, “Who will have the better career: Seth or Roman?”

Both are having great careers and I think, will continue to have great careers. Neither is “better”, but both are doing damn well.

Jake asks, “Should WWE add the ECW on SyFy episodes on the network?”

I think that they have already and if not, they will eventually. The WWECW years made a big impact on the product and produced some great matches, especially with the initial push of CM Punk. Personally, I’m looking more forward to seeing Sunday Night Heat and WCW Main Event, but it’s all good and I think that all of it will eventually be available on the Network.

Jim asks, “Is Cornette versus Russo the 2017 feud of the year or what?”

Close to twenty years in the making and still going stronger than ever. The twists and turns, especially with Vince taking out a legit restraining order on Cornette bro, is hilarious. This is all better than anything that any writers can come up with and I can’t wait to see where it goes next. Let me know where I can see Corny and Russo meet up and I’ll buy a ticket and be there. Everything they do is putting butts in the seats and getting better and better. And the best thing is, it’s real life. Love it!

Steven wants to know, “Did any mid-card angle last longer then the Jimmy Valiant and Paul Jones Army feud?”

That was Jimmy’s schtick in the old Crockett territory, to take on and feud against the managers, be it Sir Oliver Humperdink, Gary Hart or the worst of all, “Number One” Paul Jones. Their battles and feuds, with Valiant taking on various members of Paul Jones’ “Army”, headlined show after show all across the Mid-Atlantic territory for well over six years and never got stale or old. It was a great move by Crockett to load up and stack cards and keep the fans happy, seeing their beloved “Boogie Woogie Man” counter the evil plans of Jones and his diabolical schemes. It was never the main events, but it kept the fans coming in and made money. The more serious wrestlers, such as Flair, Dusty, Wahoo, Tully, etc, could headline the cards and do the title matches, and Valiant and Jones could be the special attractions. It was a great place for all that were involved and kept their characters from becoming stale or being lost in the shuffle. I’d love to see WWE do a modern day version of this angle, with one of the current stars taking on a manager and a rotating cast of characters. It worked back in Crockett and it’d work now too.

Nivram asks, “Which version was the best Midnight Express?”

The choices are Eaton and Condrey, Eaton and Lane, Condrey and Randy Rose and that disaster in the WWE of Bob Holly and Bart Gunn. We’ll just go ahead and forget about that last one. So that leaves Dennis Condrey / Bobby Eaton, who had Jim Cornette as their manager, Bobby Eaton and Stan Lane, also accompanied by Cornette and finally Dennis Condrey and Randy Rose, who were managed by Paul E. Dangerously. Much as I love the Eaton / Condrey version, the best in my opinion was and and always will be Eaton and Stan Lane. They just had “It” and seemed like a stronger team than any other version. Plus US Tag Titles and NWA World Tag Team Titles don’t lie. All non-WWE versions of the Midnight Express rocked and could go, but Eaton and Lane set the standard and were the best team overall.

Smooth Bobby asks, “Lex Luger’s run in the NWA was something a lot of people couldn’t get in tune with. But being honest, what do you think Luger was more effective at. Being a heel or a baby face?”

Luger as a face never really did anything for me. He was naturally arrogant and had that aura about him that said, “I’m better than you”. A natural heel, especially once he got some experience under his belt and improved in that ring.

Gary wants to know, “Do you think that Masked Superstar / Bill Eadie will ever be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame?”

So long as he’s part of lawsuits against the WWE, it won’t happen, but if anyone really does deserve that honor and the title of a “Hall of Famer”, Bill Eadie is the one. Just his career as the Masked Superstar in Georgia, Florida and the Carolinas is enough to vote him in on the first ballot (if there were ballots to vote on) and then add the role of Ax in Demolition, part of the until recently longest running WWE Tag Team Champions of all time, just cements that fact. Just think of it. Eadie wrestled as three different, very distinct and unique characters during his career, as Geto Mongol, the Masked Superstar and Demolition Ax. And he had success with all three characters, who had absolutely nothing in common except for being portrayed by the same person. That’s pretty amazing. I hope that one day, he gets his just dues and gets that Hall of Fame induction he so much deserves. I don’t know if it will ever happen, but he does deserve the honor far more than most.

And there you go. I think I’m through for now. Questions and comments are welcome. And if you have any questions that are wrestling related that I can answer, send them to me and let me give them a shot. I can be reached here, on my Facebook, at Twitter at @doug28352 or at my e-mail at Doug28352@yahoo.com. Holler at me. As for now, I’m down and gone. Have a great one and I’ll catch you later.
