Welcome to another edition of ”Wrestling Rambles Mailbag”. Here again to answer Wrestling questions that I’ve got via twitter – @WrestlinRambles or via Email – WrestlingRambles@Gmail.com. Let’s get to it discussing Cena heel turn and why Regal was never a WWE world champion!
It’s a bit of a boring question but who’s your favorite tag team? (past or present) – @PatrickJClough
My all-time favourite tag team would be the Legion of Doom. These two guys were just bodybuilders who knew nothing about tag team wrestling or wrestling for that matter. Look how successful they were!
Which indy female wrestlers do you think deserve a chance at WWE and why? – @RoxieeRose
I don’t know much at all about female Indy wrestlers. I do know Sara Del Rey has been ruling the independent circuit for several years now and deserves a shot with WWE. Only problem is she’s been wrestling 12 years now, if WWE were interested in her, they would of signed her by now.
Do you think John Cena will be turning heel within the next year? – @RingGeneral
It’s hard to say. Everyone is expecting Cena to turn heel because Hulk Hogan did back in 96. People gotta understand mainstream wrestling is different now than 14 years ago. However, I do hope he will turn heel but I doubt it’ll be this year or anytime soon.
Why do you think William Regal was never a WWE world champion? – @BeyondAttitude1
It’s hard to say. Carrying that belt means more than just being the champion. It means you’re representing WWE wherever you go, it’s a huge responsibility to have. With all due respect to Regal, but I can’t see him going on shows like Conan O’ Brien, Jimmy Fallon etc.. The WWE champions needs to be on those shows to promote WWE.
What type of themed match would you consider to be the most violent today, in professional wrestling? – @OriginalT44
The fire/inferno match. That’s real fire. You’d often read websites reporting fans had to be put back extra because of the heat from the fire. That’s gotta me the most dangerous themed match.
- Stone Cold
- Hulk Hogan
- John Cena
- The Rock
- CM Punk (Just watch, just watch)
- Hulk Hogan
- Road Warriors
- Sensational Sherri
- Shawn Michaels
- Stone Cold
- Hardy Boyz
- Trish Stratuss
- Bret Hart
“These two guys were just bodybuilders who knew nothing about tag team wrestling or wrestling for that matter.”
😮 You’re killing me, Ray! KILLING ME!
Do like how you added women to the 5-on-5, though; that would be interesting, depending on the competitors.
Can you explain to me where I’m wrong? lol
Yeah, I don’t remember a woman being added to a SS match, I always wondered what It’d be like.
Just because they were big, doesn’t mean they knew nothing about the business. They only competed all over the World, and for like every territory in the US. If they didn’t know anything, they wouldn’t have made it, and there’s a reason so many consider them the best.
I never said they didn’t work territories. I think you assumed I said they were just in WWF? 😛
Think about it. How many bodybuilders do you know were successful in wrestling? Except for Cena.
-Georg Hackenschmidt, the first ever World champ
-“Superstar” Billy Graham
-Jesse “the Body” Ventura
-Your favorite, Batista
I could on…
But the territory thing is not what I meant. I mean just because they were big, physically, doesn’t mean they were just meatheads who knew nothing about the business.
I’m a bit surprise to see CM Punk is your top 5 of all time. No HHH, Flair, HBK, Taker, etc.
That’s why I added in (Just wait, just wait) because after Cena, IMO he’ll be THE man. I see him as a future HUGE draw. Only time will tell, though!
I see your point on CM Punk, and think you’ll be right. It’s also an interesting top 5 choice you’ve gone for too.
I do like this mailbag idea, good addition to the site. I’ll try to think of a good question for the next one you do.
Only time can tell with Punk…but I hope I’m right!
You know, I can’t really do a “Top 5”. I have to mention different wrestlers for different thing they bring to the table.
I was ages trying to pick them, like to leave Taker, HHH etc. out wasn’t easy!
Yeah, I just couldn’t do it. So many that bring something different to the business.
Biggest transendant star-Rock
Making insanity work-Macho Man
The LOD are still the Road Warriors to me, Damn it!!
Also, you didn’t mention who would induct Heyman & Bischoff.
hahaha same to me.
Oh shit, lol. I’ll add them in now.
This a an excellent idea Ray!!!
Good read. On the Hall of Fame Issue, I would have doubts surrounding Bischoff. Okay, he had one brilliant idea which launched WCW into the stratosphere but he was also heavily responsible for turning the hottest wrestling company into dust. I guess however you can’t really discuss the history of wrestling without mentioning his name so in that sense he probably deserves his place – it’s a strange situation though.
Interesting top 5. I would probably go with Shawn, Austin, Bret, Rock and Taker in that order when considering all factors of great matches, promos and feuds.
Nice mailbag, would love to do one of these sometime.
I take it you didn’t mention Cena in the greatest wrestlers of all time because of his wrestling ability? Because if that was the case…LOL! Don’t think Hogan would be in there either for his wrestling ability. BUT superstar wise -yes, they should be there.
There are only so many spots. That’s I wouldn’t be able to. Each person brings something different to the table.
