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:

Question: "On the Hot Tag episode 353 Tony closed by saying he has to go fight aliens from a distant planet. Tony how did that go?"

Answer: It was one hell of a battle, but I won with some help from James Woods.

Question: "Will Tony be a guest or hold assistant or higher power in the GM Versus? If live draft or show can fans give suggestions?"

Answer: If that ends up happening, I'm sure I'll pop up at some point in some fashion.

Question: "What do you hear that makes you feel old?"

Answer: I hate hearing things like people saying they graduated high school way past when I did, and they're full-on adults, instead of kids.

Question: "The first guy who trained me Magic ask on Facebook for names for a wrestling themed restaurant. He said it was a joke to see what people say and I want to hear your ideas. What names do you have for a wrestling themed restaurant? Yes, I accept Snack Talk"

Answer: I don't know if you can get much better than Squared Circle pizzeria, actually. Maybe there's something to Punch & Lunch. If Strowman opened up a ham place, it could be Get These Hams. If Steve Austin wants to be a jerk about it, he could open up the Stone Cold ice cream place.

Question: "Since you covered All In are you considering covering any other non-WWE events? One of my favorite non-WWE events is coming up Ultimate Lucha Cuatro"

Answer: I highly doubt it, especially with WWE adding more stuff to the schedule.

Question: "Do you like in Lucha Underground backstage segments are only seen by the fans and people in them? When they come out everybody else use context clues to figure out what happened out of the ring"

Answer: n/a - I don't watch Lucha Underground

Question: "Do you think by body and hair alone if you took the mask off Kobra Moon you realistically could see Bayley being underneath the mask?"

Answer: n/a - I don't watch Lucha Underground

Question: "What do you think of Lucha Underground wrestler Xo Lishus? I really like the transgender gimmick"

Answer: n/a - I don't watch Lucha Underground

Question: "Do you think All In would have sold out if CM Punk's name wasn't dropped?"

Answer: I still think it would have, yeah. People wanted to be in on the hip thing.

Question: "Tony, Callum and Robert using the Raw, Smackdown and NXT 3 man announce team who are you for each of them?"

Answer: I'm very curious what everyone thinks would be the best picks haha.

Question: "Do you think R-Truth's character knows he's in a show about wrestling like GLOW and he is acting crazy backstage, but reality he knows what is going on?"

Answer: Like Deadpool?

Question: "Do you think Renee Young's body is always covered because WWE disapproves of her tattoo?"

Answer: I think they just want to make sure she looks more presentable as a broadcaster and less like a character, so she isn't showing off her body as much.

Question: "Do you think Mix Match Challenge hurts Survivor Series since the brands collide? Also, any different teams you'd use? I thought immediately Bryans Vs Mizs should of happened here and joke Niki and Cena"

Answer: I'm still surprised Bryan/Brie, Almas/Vega, Crews/Brooke aren't pairs. As far as the Survivor Series thing, I don't think that's a problem, but I do think Mixed Match Challenge sucks and they'd be better off without it in general.

Question: "How important are championships in determining how great a superstar is?"

Answer: I think it's not a 100% necessity, but when people don't win a lot of titles, it becomes a talking point. Jake the Snake Roberts never won any titles in WWE and that might hurt his legacy, but he's still a legend. However, you don't hear people talking about everyone who has won every title. It's certainly a bonus, but it doesn't make someone's career if they aren't interesting beyond being champion.

Question: "I've been watching Impact lately and I don't understand for the life of me why they're keeping Fallah Bah. All he is since he turned face is almost looks like a retarded version of Yokozuna but from The Philippines and he hits his head with his hand and goes "Bah" and also why is KM with him when he was just a heel a year and a half ago paired off with Sienna being Sienna's storyline brother, I don't understand what they're doing with the both of them."

Answer: n/a - I don't watch Impact.

Question: "How will the Mae Young Classic winner play a factor into the NXT Women's Title?"

Answer: I'm expecting it to follow suit with the way it happened last year, where the winner might not immediately win the title, but she'll likely get the belt somewhere in the following year.

Question: "Could Bianca Belair be something special on the main roster?"

Answer: Definitely. Belair is one of the best NXT has to offer right now.

Question: "Are you a big fan of Lava Cake, like I am?"

Answer: To be honest, I'm more of a fan of regular cake than lava cake, oddly enough.

Question: "Who the hell are going to take the titles off the War Raiders after they eventually beat The Undisputed ERA?"

Answer: Absolutely no idea, but I do know it's very unlikely to be any team we currently see on the brand. My guess is we'll have a newly formed team or a new team will be brought in by that time.

Question: "Chips Ahoys or Oreos?"

Answer: Oreos, for sure.

Question: "What is your favorite brand of chips? I love me some Doritos and Tostitos."

Answer: When push comes to shove, I'll pick Doritos over every other, but there's also BBQ chips, regular Lays potato chips, Sun Chips, Cheetos, some sour cream and onion...Funyuns...

Question: "Do you like Peanut Butter?"

Answer: Love it, especially for desserts.

Question: "Do you think Ruby Riott will ever win a title in WWE?"

Answer: I wouldn't be entirely shocked if she never won either title, but I do think there's a chance she can somewhere down the line, but maybe only once. It depends on how long of a career she has.

Question: "Would you like Apollo Crews to get a singles push with Dana Brooke as his manager? I think Crews has been vastly underrated for a couple years now."

Answer: At this point, nope. Crews has had enough time to show me that he's worth investing in and while he's athletic and has a good look, I think he's one of those guys who just lacks the charisma to be a champion and a focal point. Dana Brooke is also someone that I think would be better off released and pursuing another career.

Question: "Have you watch Impact Slammiversary since it was critically acclaimed? I got to admit that it was freakin awesome."

Answer: Nope, haven't seen it. Didn't even hear that it was good.

Question: "It's time for one last Big Brother question(s). First off, what are your thoughts on Big Brother 21 not being renewed yet, especially with the fact that Julie Chen could be leaving due to her sicko and pervert of a husband? Who do you think will win, who do you think will be the final two, and what are your thoughts on all of JC's sexual conduct allegations? Also how would you rate this season? I think this has been a great season, it'll be Angela and Tyler at the end, and Tyler will win. Kaycee will win against anyone and Tyler will as well except against Kaycee? BTW that double eviction was AMAZING!!"

Answer: I'm really hoping Tyler wins and he's up against Sam in the finals, now that Brett is no longer in the game.

Question: "How would you rate Paige as GM so far?"

Answer: Meh, she's okay. Better than I thought she'd be, but nothing too special.

Question: "Do you think there is any stock to the Rock and Reigns match at WrestleMania?"

Answer: I don't think so, because if they do that, they're setting themselves up for Reigns being booed and I really don't want to see that again.

Question: "Do you think WWE screwed up with CJ Parker, with Juice Robinson being the IWGP United States Championship?"

Answer: On the contrary, I think he wasn't showing much promise in WWE and being released gave him the kick in the butt to get motivated to improve.

Question: "Do you like Italian Ice?"

Answer: I'll always, always pick soft serve ice cream over water ice.

Question: "When will The Undisputed Era be called up? I'm think right after WrestleMania 35."

Answer: Definitely thinking post-Mania.

Question: "Do you see Adam Cole winning a World Title on the Main Roster?"

Answer: Sadly, I think Cole is going to be one of those guys they want to keep in the midcard and give the Intercontinental and United States titles to, rather than the Universal or WWE Championship.

Question: "Would you rather have no one show up to your wedding, or nobody show up to your funeral?"

Answer: Assuming my bride is there, at least, I'd pick the wedding. If nobody shows up at my funeral, that means everyone else is already dead and gone that I know, or that I've alienated myself from everyone. At least with a wedding, it can be a small ceremony or just a courthouse thing.

Question: "Would you rather know when your going to die or how your going to die?"

Answer: Probably how. That way, I can avoid it as long as I can, but I won't be petrified about a specific date when the time comes. Then again, if you know when you're going to die, you can have so much fun during the time leading up to that, and you can get your affairs in order and plan ahead of time...that's tough...I'm actually now changing my mind and picking the when option.

Question: "What do you think of this AOP and Drake Maverick stick?"

Answer: Ridiculous. It makes no sense and I hate how they're AOP now, too.

Question: "How do you think Bobby Lashley and Lio Rush fare together?"

Answer: I think it'll fail and be one of those short-term experiments that goes nowhere for both guys.

Question: "What do you think of Gable and Roode? When do you think Roode turns on Gable?"

Answer: Poor excuse of creative trying to do something with two people that they're not giving enough credit. Roode should be a heel who is actually worthwhile on Raw and Gable should be a legitimate midcard contender on the babyface side of SmackDown.

Question: "Who is going to take the title off of Shinsuke Nakamura?"

Answer: At this point, if it isn't Rusev, I have no idea, cause SmackDown doesn't have babyfaces.
