PLEASE NOTE: THIS WAS ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED BY ME IN THE BUILD UP TO WRESTLEMANIA 34 (SO MARCH – APRIL 2018) AND IS NOT A NEW POST. IT IS AN OLD POST THAT I HAVE HAD TO RE-UPLOAD AFTER IT WAS DELETED
So ahead of the 34th Wrestlemania I thought I would answer 34 Questions about WWE… These have been chosen by people I know and have actually created a pretty fun set. I hope you enjoy my answers to some really great questions. Feel free to let me know what you think of my answers…
1.What do you think is the worst gimmick in WWE history?
For me… Sister Abigail. I never ever want to see Bray Wyatt with an awful voice changer and in a weird dress, vale and make up ever ever again!
2.Who is your most hated Wrestler of all time?
Alberto Del Rio. Quite simply cuz he’s an asshole; he comes across as a prick, he was clealry very un-kind to Paige during their time together, and he also no showed one time when I payed money for a ticket to a show he was on (apparently due to flight issues but…). And I never did and still don’t really rate him as a character or in the ring. Yeah, ASSHOLE!
3.Who would win this: Bruno Sammartino, Stone Cold & John Cena Vs Hulk Hogan, The Rock & The Undertaker?
Let’s be honest; Hulk Hogan isn’t getting out of bed these days (or any other day for that matter) unless he’s winning. So that’s the fact of the matter there.
33… It made me feel every single emotion I could feel as a wrestling fan; I laughed, I cried, I jumped for joy, I was angry, I was ecstatic, I was blown away and amazed… all in the course of 1 show. It’s probably (other than Summerslam 2014) my favourite non-NXT WWE show ever… FIGHT ME!!!
5.Shane or Stephanie?
STEPHANIE. All day.
6.Best promo person in wwe rn?
It’s John Cena. Without a doubt. Has been for years. Like him or hate him, one thing nobody can deny is the man can talk a good game. And he’s bettered The Rock on multiple occasions in promo battles, which says it all really.
7. Best entrance music?
By a mile it was that of GANGREL/THE BROOD. Still today it’s cool af!
8. Worst WWE storyline ever?
Erm … enzo’s crusrweitgh title run … an angle that dominated an entire show for months, absolutely SUCKED, and then had to be abruptly stopped due to him being a twat. Pretty disastrous I’d say.
9. Best manager ever?
Paul Heyman. No explanation needed.
10. Who will end Roman Reigns’ inevitable Universal Title run?
Braun Strowman, I think and hope and pray.
11. AJ or Shinsuke?
Nakamura for me.
12. Is Brock Lesnar really leaving?
Yeah I reckon. He wants to fight in the UFC again and I dont think WWE will let him this time. And he’s not going to be able to (age-wise) compete at the top level in MMA for many more years. So his window is limited hence I think he’ll lose to Roman and be done.
13. What is the best Wrestling Gimmick ever?
By a country mile it is the Deadman form (2005-present) of The Undertaker.
14. Bring someone back to WWE that left?
Sting. His career in WWE was over WAYYYY before it was fulfilled.
15. Of all the superstars in WWE rn? What is THE dream match?
Until recently I’d have said the best two wrestlers in the company; AJ Styles vs Johnny Gargano. Now though I could list 10 or so involving a man called Bryan Danielson…
16. Induct 1 person into the WWE Hall of Fame?
17. What do you think is the worst match stipulation ever?
Anything “on a pole” match.
18. Best Finishing move?
The F5. It’s beat everyone. Simple as. The Stunner is up there too for similar reasons.
19. Of all the talents currently working in wrestling but outside WWE, who would you bring to WWE if you could pick 1?
Will Ospreay. Just look him up on YouTube, you’ll understand.
20. Wost underrated in WWE rn?
The Revival. Most underutilised too! Just watch them in NXT!
21. 2 singles stars as a tag team, GO!?
WOKEN Matt Hardy and Bray Wyatt. Would be a great way to evolve their story.
22. Who in NXT currently will be biggest star on main?
Aleister Black COULD be. But Johnny Gargano may be the next Daniel Bryan popularity wise, so I’d say him.
23. Favourite quote from a wrestler?
Brock Lesnar to Heath Slater: “I DON’T GIVE A SHIT ABOUT YOUR KIDS”! Amazing!!!
24. How was it possible for CM Punk to have been so good at such a shit time for the wwe?
Because he’s a god. And all the goodness that is usually spread throughout a roster was between 2010-2013 all put on to him. The freedom he was given at times helped too. If everyone had that wwe would be amazing.
25. If you could fire 1 WWE wrestler who would it be?
Sheamus. But not for why you may think. He has a condition called Spinal Stenosis, which has forced Austin, Edge and others to retire before to avoid more serious issues. Yet I still see Sheamus do all sorts of moves and I cringe everytime I watch him wrestle. I don’t want to see him or anyone get hurt and I’m always fearful when I watch him.
26. If I could be any wwe wrestler irl who would I be?
ADAM COLE “BAY BAY”!!!
27. Favourite WWE tag team of all time?
Matt & Jeff Hardy. No question.
28. Do you prefer the PG era, classic era, or bloody Attitude era and why? .
PG era for me. It presents the best overall product imo.
29. Who is your female wrestler crush?
Depends what you mean by crush? Marry? A night with? Varies depending…
30. What match SHOULD have happened at a Wrestlemania that never did?
WOW I could list several… but most of all; the main event of Wrestlemania 29 SHOULD have been The Rock vs John Cena vs CM Punk in a 3 way. How things could’ve been different then…
31. Earliest wrestling memory?
It will have been the rivalry between My Uncle’s favourite Triple H and that of me, my Mum, Auntie and Grandma, The Rock, in 2000.
32. Who is the greatest Wrestler of all time?
Male…….. in WWE? In-ring it’s HBK. Overall for me it’s the Undertaker.
Female……..? Charlotte Flair.
33. Best wwe match I’ve ever seen?
Shawn Michaels v Undertaker @ Wrestlemania 25 or more recently Andrade Almas v Johhny Gargano @ NXT Takeover: Philadelphia.
34. Will Cena beat Taker?
