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 BY PETER PICCININNI:

Question: "Have you ever done a Segway tour? I’ve been medically disqualified from doing it due to my fine motor skills"

Answer: Nope, didn't even know there were segway tours and I've never ridden one.

Question: "What do you think of the recent Pokémon episode being banned for Ash wearing Blackface to intimate Passimian?"

Answer: I didn't see it, but black face is always going to lead to controversy, so I'm not surprised. Did anyone have any seizures, though?

Question: "Have you ever had a beer at Moe’s Tavern or a Duff? I did in Universal California, it was a Duff Light though because I am an extreme light wait"

Answer: Didn't even know that was a thing, actually.

Question: "My Vocal teacher wants me to sing well known songs that public will know. What wrestling song if any would you put into that category? She also said Road Dog DX sounds like a car salesman what do you think?"

Answer: I think the closest thing to a wrestling song the public would know would be John Cena's "My Time is Now", Voodoo Child or Hulk Hogan's "Real American", but even that is a stretch.

Question: "I think Tony said he had a friend who was on WWE television, but question is any of your friends been on WWE TV? Me yes, an acquaintance at my studio has been in background at NXT commercials, one of my friends as a Rosebud for a week, NY tapings, Roman attack my friend playing a security guard and my friend Will Ferra was that cameraman that Seth pushed into Dean when they were feuding."

Answer: Yup, Brian Johnson was on, as was Mik Drake.

Question: "What do you think of “The Savage” Jake Strong (Jack Swagger)?"

Answer: That's his new ring name? Not bad.

Question: "What do you think of Wikipedia taking away wrestlers move sets? I’m not making any create a superstar anymore"

Answer: Absolutely ridiculous. I don't understand why they got uppity about it and removed it. It also seems like there's this mentality of "well fuck you for being upset, now we're even happier we removed it" for some reason, too.

Question: "Alexa Bliss got accused of sleeping with officials, I don’t think so. If someone on the current roster male or female was sleeping with officials who would be? I think Renee Young first thing say on Total Divas “I’m dating the WWE champion” who on the show was Triple H and she recently tweeted and deleted a tweet saying me and Paul (Triple H’s real name) are in love. If you are wondering Dean’s real name is Jon"

Answer: I actually don't think anyone is sleeping with anybody high up on the totem pole. I feel like if anything, there are affairs going on within the talent, like how JoJo and Bray Wyatt was a surprise. Maybe someone is having some behind the scenes shenanigans with another wrestler or whatever, but I don't think there's a single case of someone sleeping with a higher-up for personal gain.

SENT IN BY FRANKIE DICALOGERO:

Question: "Will Lars Sullivan be called up to the Main Roster after Summerslam?"

Answer: I don't think it will be quite too soon after that. I could see him being more of a post-Mania guy.

Question: "Do you believe in Bloody Mary?"

Answer: Never really did believe in those things, nope.

Question: "I have a dilemma and I need your help. I need to decide which event should I go to. Should I go to Takeover or Summerslam? I’ve been to Takeover the last two years in Brooklyn and they’ve both been fantastic but I’ve never been to a Summerslam, but it has not been good the past few years."

Answer: I'd say go with SummerSlam, if not just to be able to say you went to SummerSlam.

Question: "If WWE told you that you must book Hulk Hogan to have one match from someone on either the Main Roster or in NXT, who would that one superstar be? I think Velveteen Dream would be fun."

Answer: John Cena. It's just an icon match.

— Question: "What is your favorite vegetable? Mine is corn, peas, and string beans loaded with breadcrumbs."

Answer: Broccoli, probably, or green beans if they're thin.

— Question: "Would you be down if Paige announces AJ Styles opponent at Summerslam to be John Cena? They could have him win Title #17, and then fight Taker for the title at Mania. But I also rather see that happen from the Raw Brand, because Bryan and Joe are on Smackdown."

Answer: At this point, no. I want it to be either Samoa Joe or Undertaker. Another Cena match would just be redundant.

— Question: "Since she is known as “the greatest female wrestler in the world,” when do you think Lo Shirai takes the NXT Women’s Title? Could she beat Shayna for the title?"

Answer: Maybe she's the one to take it off Bianca Belair, who takes it off Candice LeRae, who takes it off Shayna Baszler.

— Question: "What do you think of Lio Rush so far?"

Answer: I think he plays his douchey part very well and he's talented in the ring.

Question: "Do you want Buddy Murphy to claim the Cruiserweight Title some point down the line?"

Answer: Definitely. Absolutely. He's impressed me so much.

— Question: "What do you think of The New Day’s tweet about the Hulk Hogan situation on twitter?"

Answer: Very honest, professional, and it makes a lot of sense. They're not leaning toward any extreme, and I like that.

— Question: "On Twitter, Gallows and Anderson got a tweet saying that they’re jobbers. Do you believe that? Are they truly better in NJPW?"

Answer: WWE really has fucked them up and I don't understand why there's this hesitation to do anything with them.

Question: "If Finn Balor never lost the Universal Title, what position would he be in now?"

Answer: Honestly, I think he'd be in a slightly similar position, but slightly better. I also think he'd be on SmackDown. Upper-midcard, main event level.

— Question: "What are your thoughts about Mark Henry saying that it’s about a 50/50 split from the african-americans in the locker rumor on Hulk Hogan?"

Answer: It wouldn't surprise me at all if there are people still upset with Hogan, and I think they have every right to be, if they feel he wasn't genuine or didn't do enough to reset his karma.

— Question: "Do you believe in mermaids?"

Answer: Nope. I think they were manatees and other creatures that old sailors had fever dreams about, or were bored and just imagined things.

— Question: "Do you know how to play poker?"

Answer: I can't tell you. I have to maintain my poker face.

— Question: "Ronda Rousey’s husband, Travis Browne recently hinted about joining the WWE. Do you see that ever happening?"

Answer: Knowing nothing about the guy, sure, why not? So far, the Four Horsewomen are involved. Maybe he'll do the same.

— Question: "How do you see Keith Lee fitting in NXT?"

Answer: I'm not familiar with him, but from what I've been told and the buzz around him, I could see him doing well and being somewhat of a major player in a few months.

— Question: "Have you ever been stung by a jellyfish?"

Answer: Nope and I hope I never will be.

— Question: "When your at a restaurant, do you put a napkin on your lap?"

Answer: Depends on the restaurant. If it's a cloth napkin, yes. If it's just a paper one, nope.

Question: "Would you rather have taste buds on your butthole, or would you rather poop through your mouth?"

Answer: Taste buds on my butthole. At least that doesn't ruin my teeth or breath. Both ways, I'm tasting shit, so that's the scenario with less extra negatives.

Question: "If your very, very, very best friend in the whole world was about to go to jail for 25 years, would you rather help them, but have a guilty conscious for the rest of your life, or would you refuse to help and lose your best friend?"

Answer: Depends on what they did to go to jail. If they killed someone, they're on their own, unless it was self-defense or something. If they're going to jail for pirating movies, I'm going to help them out.

Question: "Do you like cheesecake? I hate it"

Answer: Love it, but I tend to like it plain. Most people seem to like fruit on it and I'm not a fan of that.

Question: "Would you rather have a really smart kid but is mean, or a really dumb kid but is super nice?"

Answer: Dumb and nice. Being around stupid people can be frustrating, but being around mean people is too toxic and I'd hate to know that my kid was a bane on other people's lives.

Question: "Would you rather be with someone who is not a good kisser or someone who is not a good listener?"

Answer: Give me the person who isn't a good kisser. We can work on that. Being a bad listener is horrendous and those relationships don't work.

Question: "Finally, I want to talk about Big Brother and I have multiple questions. Who are your favorites and least favorites? Are you as pumped as I am that Swaggy C is gone? Who do you realistically think will win? What do you think about the BB App Store punishments and awards? Also, how would you play the game? I would try to be a low profile puppet master. I love Tyler, Rockstar surprisingly, and the Bros (unfortunately one will go home this week) and I dislike Bayleigh and Scottie. I think if he keeps his cover, Tyler will win, but if not him then Sam will float all the way."

Answer: My favorite is Tyler, although I do like Rachel. My least favorite is either JC or Kaitlyn or Bayleigh or Rockstar. Very glad Swaggy C is gone. My pick for the winner right now is probably either Tyler if a strong player wins, Haleigh.

SENT IN BY MARCO HUERTA:

Question: "To Callum and Rob(sorry Tony), which is your favorite era of the Bullet Club? The birth led by Devitt, The dominance led by Styles, or The expansion led by Omega"

Answer: I liked it best when it was nWo.

Question: "If professional wrestling didn't exist, what other "hobby" would you be investing all this time in?"

Answer: I'd probably be even more focused on movies, like I was during the era I didn't watch wrestling.

Question: "Whats the next big technological advancement you could realistically see in WWE in like 10 years?"

Answer: This is a really, really tough question that I don't think I'll have an answer to until the podcast.

SENT IN BY HOWARD:

Question: "Marry, Fuck, Kill: Nia Jax, Mount Fiji, Kharma & Bertha Faye?"

Answer: Woof. I'd marry Kharma, fuck Nia Jax, and kill Mt. Fiji and Bertha Faye.

Question: "How would you feel if WWE decided to make a 30 man Elimination Chamber match sort of like a Royal Rumble, 30 pods are surrounded inside the ring until 1 man is left standing and that would be your winner of the Elimination Chamber match."

Answer: God knows how they'd fit that in an arena, but screw it, I'd watch it.

SENT IN BY GEORGE STALLEM:

Question: "Do you like Nakamura as a heel? And do you think he’s a good heel?"

Answer: I'm digging him so much more as a heel than a babyface.

SENT IN BY ANDRE BOUGHTON:

Question: "If you had to show one match to a non-wrestling fan to justify all the years you've spent being a fan, what match would it be? For me, it's Undertaker vs. Mankind Hell in a Cell all day."

Answer: Austin vs Hart from WrestleMania 13 probably.

SENT IN BY PABLO ESCOBAR:

Question: "Since Fake news is so popular at the moment, who is your favourite fake wrestler? E.g Bret Sandhart, Mini Daniel Bryan ect."

Answer: I've always had a soft spot in my heart for the nostalgia of Fake Undertaker from SummerSlam 94, despite the drawbacks.

SENT IN BY ISAAC ALLEN:

Question: "Do you think Kane was meant to do more, and now he's done because of his injury?"

Answer: I actually don't think so. I think they were meant to lose and the only difference would have been that Kane would have wrestled longer in the match.

Question: "Have you ever injured someone playing wrestling at school/work?"

Answer: Not that I can remember.

Question: "Did you know faces and heels are called blueyes and diddlers in the UK?"

Answer: That sounds ridiculous and very UK haha.

Question: "What's your favourite and worst type of attire (e.g trunks, singlet, tights, chaps, jorts ect)"

Answer: I think I tend to lean more toward the pants look, and I hate seeing people wearing plain black trunks or something that looks too old school.

Question: "Is that pale ghoul guy in the audience actually Bret Hart's bastard son Hret Bart?"

Answer: Tall Lisa?

Question: "Erase Family Guy or South Park?"

Answer: Definitely erase Family Guy. Sorry. The first couple of seasons were good, but beyond that, it hasn't served a purpose like South Park has.
