Everybody loves binary decisions, especially wrestling fans! In This Or That, we’ve forced ourselves to choose between two options that relate to wrestling.
Over four questions, @TimWelcomed, @JoeySplashwater and @TomBlargh will have to choose one of two options and give their reasoning on each of their choices. You can then vote on which one you’d choose, giving you the
false impression that you’re somehow involved and we care about your opinion chance to join the conversation!
Before we start, here’s last week‘s results:
Who are you more interested to see at Wrestlemania?
Sting – 67%, The Undertaker – 33%
Where do you think Samoa Joe will end up?
NJPW – 98%, NXT – 2% (Biggest difference in This Or That history. Wow were we wrong!)
More exciting Wrestlemania match potential?
Seth Rollins vs. Randy Orton – 59%, Intercontinental title match – 41% (This was voted on when it looked like Ziggler vs. Barrett vs. Ambrose vs. R-Truth.)
Better weird 90’s music artist?
Fred Durst – 64%, Carson Daly – 36%
Worse choice for Wrestlemania main event: The Miz at Wrestlemania 27 or Roman Reigns at Wrestlemania 31?
Which is truly worse?
This is a hard one. I personally believe The Miz is the worst. Just the absolute worst. Both guys do have their fans though. Disgusting isn’t it? Both were forced upon us and were/are believed to be something they are not by WWE management. I do get what WWE sees in Reigns. He is just their type. It’s sad that it is that way and I will never be happy with it but it is what it is. In the end, I think every time WWE makes an inorganic decision from so far within its own ass like they are doing it gets worse and worse. Roman Reigns is a bore and I hate he’s getting to beat Lesnar. The streak ended for this, ya know? Anyway, fuck ‘em. A lot of fans seem really defeated lately. It’s pretty disappointing.
Look, I know Roman Reigns sucks and quite frankly Miz probably is/was better than him but Miz was by far a worse choice. At least you can see WWE and many fans do believe there’s potential in Reigns to be a future top star in the industry. With Miz, it was easy to predict how far he would fall going forward. Sure, he had some momentum (aka any new heel to the main event picture facing John Cena) but homeboy had no business in that main event, especially over CM Punk that year.
I don’t think Miz was ready for his WWE title run and ‘Mania main event but I think taking a punt on him was at least worth a shot. He was never a particularly good wrestler but he’s always been incredibly hateable and I can understand pitting him against Cena at a time when they still weren’t sure how to handle the negative reactions he was getting.
It was misguided, but I think there was still a certain bravery about going with Miz that year and trying to push a new guy who was getting a decent ctowd reaction, whereas the Roman Reigns push just seems completely insane, forced and contrary to all logic.
