Accidentally circumcise yourself with your zipper? Wake up after a drunken night out only to realise you’re in bed with your step-brother? Or are you just wondering why Triple H left Undertaker hanging on Monday Night RAW. Don’t worry playas, we gonna have ourselves a Questions and Answers session to answer all your queries, playas!
Let’s get to it.
Evan McFarlane Asks: Did you enjoy the 2012 Royal Rumble?
Taj: Yes, I did enjoy this years Royal Rumble. Infact, exclusively for Wrestling-News.Net readers, I have a match-by-match review of the entire pay-per-view available to read at this link.
Wayne: I thought the 2012 WWE Royal Rumble was actually a very good pay-per-view event overall. The CM Punk vs. Dolph Ziggler match was absolutely brilliant, where as John Cena and Kane kept their feud running as we can evidently see based off Monday’s RAW. As for the Royal Rumble match itself, the return of Kharma was a huge surprise to everyone as much as the victory for Sheamus was. Some people might argue that it hasn’t lived up to the Royal Rumble of year’s past, however they would need to take off those glasses as this was a good quality pay-per-view that helped to continue feuds and start new ones.
Jay: Yes, I enjoyed the Royal Rumble immensely. I thought top to bottom it was a fantastic PPV and the outcome of the Royal Rumble match was quite a shocker when everyone seemed so certain that Chris Jericho was walking out with the “W”. The WWE Championship Match between CM Punk & Dolph Ziggler was also a superb match. These two put on a show for the St. Louis crowd and entertained throughout. The World Heavyweight Championship Steel Cage match was a little short but entertaining none-the-less. We also got a cameo from the Funkasaurus when he faced Drew McIntyre in a short bout. Overall, I found it to be one of the best Rumbles in recent memory.
James Rolls Asks: Who would you say are your favourite Superstars and Divas of all-time?
Taj: Personally, I hate this question. Being only 19, it’s hard to have a greatly informed opinion as I grew up exposed to that kerfuffle we call the “Attitude Era”. Due to lack of exposure to the 80s or early 90s at the time, alot of my wrestling watching has been DVDs or the internet. From this, I can state without a doubt that my favourite of all time is, none other, than the Nature Boy, Ric Flair. Flair had the complete package as a wrestler. The looks, the in-ring ability and enough charisma to convince God that he was better than him. He was so great that he managed to remain relevant from the 80s, through the 90s and until his retirement in 2008 at WrestleMania 24. For all time favourite diva, my pick has to be Michelle McCool. This pick will most likely receive negative reactions, but Michelle has great skill for a female wrestler. Throughout her WWE career, her in-ring work improved greatly and she could handle herself on the mic (by divas standards). I also loved her LayCool/Flawless work, and her singles Divas runs were great. I also think that her relationship with The Undertaker has to be read into a lot less than it has been. She is on a par with, if not greater than, the highly held Lita and Trish Stratus; two competitors I’ve never been a fan of. Although I list McCool as my favourite of all time; the caliber of female wrestlers is improving each and every year with improved assistance by their male counterparts
Wayne: Of all time is tough to pick, however I’ve always been a fan of the technical style of wrestling so for me, I’m a big fan of the likes of Bret Hart, Chris Jericho, Kurt Angle, Dynamite Kid and more. Outside the ones mentioned above, I, like I’d say every professional wrestling fan is a big fan of The Undertaker and you can’t argue the sucess of the likes of Hulk Hogan, Triple H, The Rock, Stone Cold Steve Austin and others. Leading us up to WWE Divas, I was a huge fan of Alundra Blayze/Madusa growing up as well as the likes of Trish Stratus, Jazz, Lita and Victoria. These days my favourites in terms of WWE Superstars and Divas, are still some of who are mentioned above as well as the likes of CM Punk, Wade Barrett, Daniel Bryan, Sheamus, Randy Orton and John Cena, while in terms of Divas it’s Beth Phoenix, Natalya, Kharma and AJ.
Jay: Undertaker first and foremost. He’s always been one of my favourite wrestlers. His character, his presence, his aura, it draws people in. When you hear that bong you’re instantly drawn in. Shivers run down your spine as you know that one of the greatest is on his way. You get the same feeling when you hear the shredding at the beginning of Bret Harts theme, another one of the all time greats and one of my childhood favourites. I would also add Edge, Kane, Stone Cold, Chris Jericho, Wade Barrett, Sheamus, CM Punk, Ric Flair, “Macho Man” Randy Savage, Shawn Michaels, Triple H,Kurt Angle, Randy Orton, Booker T , Hulk Hogan, Rowdy Roddy Piper, Ric Flair and John Cena. On the side, favourite Diva would have to be Michelle McCool or Layla for me. They’re just fantastic together, their charisma as a pair and their in-ring ability make them second to none in WWE’s current capacity. I also love Kaitlyn & AJ, they just ooze personality and I think they’re fantastic. Nattie & Beth also along with Kharma, Eve & Kelly Kelly.
Jenn Asks: What are your thoughts on Alex Riley’s being taken off TV?
Taj: Alex Riley’s sudden “disappearances” from Raw are basically due to him being lost in the draft shuffle; something that occasionally happens to superstars. After his feud with the Miz ended, there was no business left for him on the Raw brand, and creative couldn’t create anything substantial for him due to present on-screen activities. CM Punk was letting off pipe-bombs to get noticed; R-Truth was going nuts and those fresher acts were what fans were wanting instead of the “hot” young varsity superstar. Also, I suggest you check NXT or Superstars, he features there often.
Wayne: He hasn’t been, go check out WWE NXT or WWE Superstars.
Jay: Creative has nothing for him, although he’s featured heavily on the current season of NXT.
Evan McFarlane Asks: If I threw a cat in front of a bus, Would you laugh?
Taj: A real, alive cat? No, The Taj Show does not condone animal cruelty.
Wayne: Honestly, that’s just cruel, I’m in support of those against animal cruelty, so to answer your question, no I wouldn’t.
Jay: No, The Crew are strongly against animal cruelty.
Jenn Asks: What are the main qualities either physical or mental that men really go for?
Taj: Well, let’s take the mental and physical qualities separately in this answer. For mental qualities, this will vary for every male. They “know” the ideal personality or characterisitcs they want a female to display. This is assuming that they are interested in any non-physical qualities. And, with the physical, sure smiles are nice. So are your eyes, if i’m hitting on you. Let’s be real; it’s all about boobs or a**. Men will have an individual preference of one to the other. For the first and only time ever, I will quote the idiot known as Billy Gunn: “I’m an a** man”. Well, it was his theme music, but still, you knew what I meant.
Wayne: Well a woman for me needs to have a nice personality, and as Taj said, really when it comes down to it, it’s all about tits and a**. To quote 30h3′s Starstrukk song, Tight jeans, double d’s makin’ me go woot woo
Jay: Well personality is key, a good sense of humour is always a turn on…… but if you’ve got a set of Double D’s paired with a bangin booty, then I’m all in baby!
James Rolls Asks: Do you know the Muffin Man who lives on Drury Lane?
Taj: As a part-time McDonalds employee, I know the guy thats makes the Sausage and Egg McMuffins if that counts?
Wayne: No, I don’t even know where Drury Lane is, however I recommend that you watch Man vs. Food or insert for Taj only (our food expert) next time around
Jay: I don’t know the Muffin Man but I know some chicks with Muff, is that any help?
Jenn Asks: Why does Chris Daniels wear guy liner?
Taj: Well, it’s basically to compliment his gimmick; much like the Undertaker does or the way Sting wears facepaint. The real question remains unanswered: Why did he stop being Curryman?
Wayne: It’s all based on his gimmick and him being a fallen angel. I know some people might argue that he’s a 40-year-old man wearing guy liner but all you have to do is look at The Undertaker who does the exact same thing, as it adds some depth/mystery to their character
Jay: Because Stone Cold Said So!
