Latest WWE Inbox Episode Questions and Answers Smark Out Moment
Do you have a question that you want to ask the minds over at Smark Out Moment? Our version of the WWE Inbox is the Smark Out Moment Mailbag. Once a month, we set aside some time to answer any of the questions on your mind, whether they be wrestling related, trivia to try to stump us, or just general questions to get to know Tony Mango and the other members of the team better.

Here are your submissions for this month:

Sent in from William Carey

Question: "Do you think that a TV title that is defended every week in an open challenge is a good idea for a belt?"

Answer: It sounds good on paper, but I think the benefits aren't necessarily worth the effort. It's also a little strange for something to be called the Television Championship where everything is television.

Sent in from Howard Starr

Question: "If triple H had married Chyna instead of Stephanie, would Chyna's life had been different in the early 2000's? And would Stephanie have married Test in real life?"

Answer: That's such a hard thing to try to think of, as we don't know where Stephanie's mind was in the time. If she was really into Hunter, maybe she would have been jealous and he would have left teh company. Maybe HHH being with Chyna would have straightened her out, but then Stephanie would have gotten married to some random businessman or something.

Sent in from Frankie DiCalogero

Question: "Is Rusev underrated in your opinion?"

Answer: Overrated by Dane, underrated by his haters. I think he's a solid midcarder who shouldn't become world champion.

Question: "Are you fans of Heavy Machinery?"

Answer: Definitely not a fan of their ring attire, that's for sure. I don't dislike them, but they haven't won me over yet. It's still too soon for me to make a proper judgment.

Question: "Would you be down with a Shinsuke Nakamura & John Cena, preferably at this year's Summerslam? Do you think there styles would clash?"

Answer: For this year's SummerSlam, I think it's too early for that. I'm more so expecting Nakamura to take the United States Championship from Kevin Owens at SummerSlam with Cena facing someone like Baron Corbin.

Question: "Would you rather have a triple threat match for the Universal Title at Summerslam (Brock Lesnar vs. Braun Strowman vs. Roman Reigns) or Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns in a one-on-one match, at Summerslam? If you chose the latter, who should Strowman then fued with?"

Answer: I'd rather see Reigns against Lesnar with Reigns just beating him, then we can have Strowman against Lesnar later in the year at Survivor Series.

Question: "Do you like the "Great Balls Of Fire" PPV Name?"

Answer: Not at all, in the slightest bit. I think it's so stupid and I keep hoping they'll bring back Breaking Point instead.

Question: "If you had to choose, who would you want Asuka to face as a dream opponent when she comes up to the main roster? (Besides, Bayley, we've already seen that)"

Answer: The money match is Asuka vs. Charlotte, but I'd be more interested in seeing her against Natalya or Becky Lynch.

Question: "When will Billie Kay & Peyton Royce move up to the main roster?"

Answer: I think Ember Moon's status plays a big factor into this. If Moon can take the title away from Asuka at TakeOver: Brooklyn, then I think Asuka moves up to the main roster and both Kay and Royce stay down in NXT. However, if Moon isn't ready to go and Asuka is going to stay in NXT longer, then I think Royce and Kay will get called up as replacements sometime around SummerSlam.

Question: "Do you believe Shelton Benjamin will come to WWE?"

Answer: I can't imagine if they were interested in him before and he wanted to rejoin the roster that those two sides aren't going to come to a deal somewhere along the line. I really hope so, as I want Shelton back on SmackDown where he belongs so he can feud with Tye Dillinger, Sami Zayn, Dolph Ziggler and others.

Question: "Between Mike Bennett, Maria, Crazzy Steve, and the possibilities of Lio Rush and Adam Cole, who would be the greatest addition?"

Answer: I'm not really all that familiar with any of them, to be honest, except Maria. I'd imagine she'd be the least advantageous signing between those names, though, as she was never really all that great.

Question: "Would the Hardy Boyz be better off separate? Will they afterwards?"

Answer: For now, I like that they're sticking together as a tag team. There's plenty of time to split them up later when they're running out of steam.

Question: "Would you consider watching Slammiversary for Impact Wrestling?"

Answer: Nope hahaha.

Question: "When do you believe Kenny Omega will come to WWE, if he even would?"

Answer: Not everybody does end up coming to WWE, but I do think Kenny Omega will at some point in 2018. He has too many friends there and WWE has done too good of a job trying to snatch up everybody who is good outside the company for him not to be on their radar.

Question: "Would you rather see Shinsuke Nakamura vs. AJ Styles at WrestleMania, or Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Kevin Owens, at WrestleMania."

Answer: Nakamura vs. Styles, Owens vs. Orton, Cena vs. Reigns, Joe vs. Lesnar, Strowman vs. Big Show in a retirement match.

Question: "When will the Sasha heel turn happen? Will we get the Sasha vs. Bayley match? Possible at WrestleMania? On a side note, is there a chance Alexa Bliss turns face?"

Answer: At some point, Sasha HAS to turn heel and face Bayley. It's just too much of a guarantee. The only question is when that will happen, and I don't think it will come into play for another few months or so. As far as Alexa Bliss turning face, I don't think that's in the cards for quite a while and won't happen until at least 2018.

Sent in from Peter Piccininni

Question: "Do you think Drax from Guardians has autism? I read an article saying yes"

Answer: I don't think that was any plan of theirs when writing the character.

Question: "Do you listen to Renee Young's podcast Regular Girls? Dean name is Jon if didn't know as Renee reference him that way"

Answer: Nope, I didn't even know she had that podcast, actually.

Question: "What was your reaction to Charlotte's getting hacked? I said this is getting out of control anyone can be hack, what if Tony got hacked. So my question what if you guys got hacked."

Answer: It sucks for Charlotte, as those are private photos, but out of sheer male curiosity, I tend to love the leaks. If I ever got hacked, I'd be a wreck because I'd be afraid of all my account information and stuff more so than any kind of naked pictures. If those were online, well, oh well, right? It's just a dick lol.

Question: "Will Charlotte become the first NXT, Raw and Smackdown champion one uping Alexa? Will Mickie James win the raw or smackdown title becoming the first Woman's Divas and Knockouts with those titles champion?"

Answer: Definitely. Alexa will never go back down to NXT so she won't be able to achieve that, but Charlotte DEFINITELY will. I'm hoping Mickie James gets a title reign somewhere along the line, sure.

Question: "Do you think the Uso's make it to June 14 as tag champions and Naomi June 26 with the woman's title becoming the longest reigning champions?"

Answer: I'm not sure about Naomi, but I do think The Usos will reach that point.

Question: "Does Smackdown take Raw jobbers and turn them into something?"

Answer: Raw can do the same thing if they just put the slightest bit of effort into something, but SmackDown seems to be their test show since they know the ratings aren't as strong and they're willing to play around more.

Question: "Do you think we will ever see another female champion for a male title like Lucha Underground who had Sexy Star The Gifts of Gods and World championships?"

Answer: I don't think we'll see a woman hold a men's championship in WWE, at least for a long, long time.

Question: "Do you think Lucha Underground does right with no commercials during a match unless it's an elimination or hour Iron man match?"

Answer: I've never seen Lucha Underground, but if that's how they do it, that's kind of cool. I don't think it's necessary to apply it to WWE, and I'm more into the idea of the picture-in-picture commercial mode as it allows them to make money.

Question: "Which side are you talking in the Wednesday night war Lucha Underground or NXT? How hyped are you Lucha Underground is back?"

Answer: Not hyped at all. I've never seen them, so I'm 100% in support of NXT.

Question: "Do you think we get a Hardy's revenge match at Extreme Rules? A Steel Cage with a roof with weapons hanging"

Answer: Nope, I think this will be a standard cage match.

Question: "Since WWE broke up The Beer Money reunion tour last year do you think WWE owes us a Beer Money reunion in WWE?"

Answer: They don't owe us anything, but I think this is more on James Storm than WWE, too. Storm probably felt like he deserved more money than what he was making in NXT and didn't want to stick around. He needs to find his way back.

Question: "Do you think Willow or Itchweeed will appear in WWE? How many times do we see Jeff Hardy in the Royal Rumble? I'm calling 3 these 3"

Answer: Good lord, I hope we don't see Hardy's characters in WWE. Willow looked so stupid to me, even though to be fair, I never actually watched any of it to fully judge it.

Question: "Who is the scariest superstar in WWE history? I pick Bayley people with autism don't like to be touched let alone being hugged"

Answer: As far as characters go, Kane. As far as real people, probably Haku.

Question: "How is 205 Live and NXT past 2 years or so last thing I remember is Samoa Joe debuting? I'm planning to watch soon"

Answer: I think both shows are great and I don't know why more people don't watch them, especially since everyone complains that they want to see younger guys in more wrestling matches. It's exactly what people ask for, but nobody supports it.
