Internet Wrestling Community Outreach: May Mailbag Questions & Answers Inbox

  • “Bob Backlund had kept the title for 5 years, Will WWE have a wrestler, For example Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns hold on to the world championship for as long as Bob had done in 1978-1983 ? What’s the difference between 40 years ago and now?”
  • “And speaking of the women’s championship, could Becky Lynch hold onto the title for as long as The Fabulous Moolah did for 28 years? And if she did, Becky would be about 60 years old.”
  • “Since Brock won the briefcase in the most lackluster way, how would you book a win for any superstar? A good one I heard was the lights going black near the end of the match and Black is sitting in his position legs crossed at the top of the ladder with the briefcase when the lights came back on.”
  • “Thoughts on making Lars more of a freak by making him a cannibal.”
  • “How would you integrate chess into a gimmick match?”

  • “There’s been a rumor going around that Becky Lynch is going to have a big match at Mania 36 but it won’t be Charlotte Flair, Ronda Rousey or Stephanie. Do you guys have any prediction about who her opponent could be or do you guys have anybody you would want to face her?”
  • “In the spirit of money in the bank, if there ever a time where someone stole the briefcase from it’s rightful owner to try to cash in who do you think would do such a thing from past or present ?”
  • “What would be your personal wrestling Hell? For example, mine would be watching a never ending Ironman match between The Great Khali and Giant Gonzales and I have to watch it sitting next to Lio Rush while he chants “Lash-ley Lash-ley” ( for no reason) for all eternity.”
  • “Did you guys watch the finale of Gotham? Do you want to see a Batman spin off series?”

  • “Do you watch Darkside of the Ring?”
  • “On Darkside of the Ring Episode 2 Jim Cornet claims he wants to outlive Vince Russo so he can piss on his graves. Do you want Jim to outlive Russo knowing that?”

  • “Also, on Episode 2 of Darkside of the Ring The Montreal Screw Job Scott Hall said Bret was in on the Screw Job. Scott claims since the feed wasn’t immediately cut, Bret spit in Vince’s face and destroyed the monitors Bret was in it. Everything else happened, but his thought is because he had to drop the title in Montreal to Shawn, not being screwed. What do you think of Scott’s statement?”
