    Sexy Wrestler of The Week

    The votes have been counted. Judgements have been made. Now, we are pleased to inform you that it is time to name The Sexy Wrestler of The Week. Have a good day.

    Well, here we are again. The votes were in favor of a certain wrestler who is missing in action. For the last two weeks we’ve been looking for this individual to tell him that he’s won this prestigious award. If you can’t guess who it is, let’s go ahead and reveal that for you.

    GraffitiAmbroseSWOTW

    As you can see, Dean Ambrose is The Sexy Wrestler of The Week. I personally went out of my way to look for him and I think I got super close. As you can see, I found a wall he had tagged. The paint was still wet and the air smelled of whiskey. I searched the area for about an hour but no luck. I did find a piece of ripped leather stuck to the side of a tree but I can not confirm that it was related.

    I really let you down. Maybe one day he will return. But when he does will he still be winning this precious award? That’s for you to decide.

    * WrestleMania 23 is the highest grossing one-day live event in WWE history, grossing more than $5.38 million in ticket sales.

    Fans converged on Detroit from 24 countries, all 50 states and 9 Canadian provinces, pumping an estimated $25 million into the local economy.

    4/2/2007

    * Ring of Honor wrestler Colt Cabana has signed a deal with World Wrestling Entertainment. No word yet if it’s a developmental deal or regular contract. The signing came about recently.

    4/3/2007

    * Stephanie McMahon and Triple H were said to have been very upset backstage this past Sunday at WrestleMania. In one of his news updates over the weekend on WrestlingObserver.com, Dave Meltzer spoiled some of the matches & segments (such as Slick appearing) that were going to be airing on WrestleMania.

    He also reported that Shane McMahon wanted to open the PPV as the host, standing in the ring and throwing it over to Aretha Franklin to perform. He also reported that Stephanie was against this idea, resulting in it not happening. Triple H and Stephanie got wind of the story, and they were said to be very upset about it, perhaps because it made Stephanie look bad. They are determined to find the source of the leak.

    This Or That (9/9/2014)

    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:

    Will The Undertaker ever wrestle another match?

    Yes – 57%, No – 43%

    Worse writing in wrestling?

    Bella vs. Bella – 58%, Crazy Samuel Shaw – 42%

    Which wrestling journalist do you enjoy more?

    Dave Meltzer – 67%, Wade Keller – 33%

    Which would you rather give up?

    Video games – 51%, Junk food – 49%

    Which wrestler are you more excited to see return from time off: Daniel Bryan or Dean Ambrose?

    Daniel Bryan doesn’t need surgery. Dean Ambrose’s Walmart special movie is almost done filming. Who do you want back in your life more?

    bryan-ambrose

    Tim:

    Daniel Bryan is my favorite wrestler ever so  even though I love Ambrose and am ready for his feud with Rollins to get rolling again I can not honestly say I am more ready for him to come back. There are a lot of things I’m really interested in seeing how they play out when Bryan returns. Will the crowd still be there for him? Will WWE put him back in the main event? If the crowd is still there chanting for him and WWE doesn’t put him back in the main event scene will the audience force WWE’s hand again? Most of all, I can’t wait to see him back in the ring wrestling. Give me Bryan vs Lesnar, please. Somehow.

    Daniel Bryan

    Joey:

    Daniel Bryan is the best wrestler in the world and my favorite wrestler of all time. Dean Ambrose is on a hot run but Bryan was on the hottest run and I think the fan support will still be there. The void without Daniel Bryan has been huge and I can’t wait to see him back on my television again.

    Another factor is that Daniel Bryan is great regardless of WWE booking. Dean Ambrose needs to be in a purposeful story to be most effective as seen in some of his throwaway matches, namely vs. Alberto Del Rio and Dolph Ziggler. If WWE shits the bed with booking either of the two, Bryan can still give you good little matches.

    Daniel Bryan

    Tom:

    I don’t know how anyone could pick Dean Ambrose, to be honest. His absence sucks but his return is a sure thing whereas Bryan’s path to recovery seems to be a little trickier – it seems like he’ll be back, but there’s still a question mark so it’ll make his return that much more special, assuming it happens.

    Daniel Bryan

    Superhero Survivor Series: Round Five and Vote For The Winner!

    We’re bored of wrestling so we came up with a new feature to let us go on about superheroes and comics instead. Welcome to Superhero Survivor Series!

    Each of our panel members was tasked with drafting their dream team of superheroes for a classic 5-on-5 Survivor Series match.

    Making their picks in the following order will be:

    You can see the introduction and rules here. The picks so far are:

    Round One: Arrow, The Incredible Hulk, Captain America, Guy Gardner (Red Lantern)Animal Man.
    Round Two: Master ChiefSupermanNightcrawlerVenom (Flash Thompson)Stardust the Super Wizard.
    Round Three: KatoSpider-ManSpace GhostStormThe Punisher.
    Round Four: ColossusSquirrel GirlBig BardaLockjawThe Silver Surfer.

    Let the final round begin!

    Superhero Survivor Series: Round Five

    Brad’s pick: ELEKTRA

    brad-5

    Brad:

    When you talk about Elektra, what comes to mind is her expertise in hand to hand combat. While Chief and Colossus will be using their strength, she will be using her speed and martial arts skills to take out and assist. One way she can assist is her low-level mind control and abilities to blur the mind of her adversaries.

    If adversaries attempt to use heat or cold to take the team down, she has the endurance to withstand it. I feel she is the leader of the hand to hand combat of the team alongside the team who each possess some sort of hand to hand skill. (EDITOR’S NOTE: I had no idea what to do with that last sentence, so enjoy Brad in his raw, unfiltered form!)

    NXT Takeover II Preview and Predictions

    NXT Takeover available for just 33 cents. (Because it’s one event on one day over a 30 day period. Do your math before you make another 9.99 joke.)

    Giving their thoughts and predictions on what to expect from the PPV are members of the site @JoeySplashwater, @TimWelcomed and @TomBlargh.

    Mojo Rawley vs. Bull Dempsey

    Joey:

    I don’t know these people. When I hear Mojo Rawley, I think ex TNA legend Cody Deaner. When I hear Bull Dempsey, I think ex ROH legend Bobby Dempsey. So I’m imagining this as Deaner vs. Bobby.

    Interest Level: 0/10
    Prediction: Bobby Dempsey wins.

    Tim:

    Mojo Rawley’s gimmick is annoying and I feel like bros would love him. Bull Dempsey  goes by “The Last of A Dying Breed” because that’s imaginative. These two will not excite and will not turn any hands unless it’s in a repetitive back-and-forth motion.

    Interest Level: 0/10
    Prediction: Bull Dempsey wins.

    Tom:

    I’ve not seen much of either guy but both seem to be generally regarded as the worst guys on NXT TV. Can’t wait!

    Interest Level: 1/10
    Prediction: Bull Dempsey wins.

    Enzo Amore vs. Sylvester Lefort in a Hair vs. Hair

    Joey:

    WHAT’S WITH THESE NAMES?! ARE THESE REAL PEOPLE?

    Interest Level: 0/10
    Prediction: Brutus Beefcake wins.

    Tim:

    LeFort doesn’t do anything for me but he seems like an okay wrestler from what we’ve been able to see of him in NXT. Enzo Amore’s schtick has grown old but he is solid. This one could easily be really boring or delightfully midcard-mediocre. I don’t care too much but I’m definitely looking forward to it more than Rawley vs Dempsey.

     Interest Level: 3/10
    Prediction: Sylvester LeFort wins.

    Tom:

    I know Enzo Amore is the guy who does the ‘SAWFT’ thing and is apparently from Queens, which is where I’m currently residing, so I can confirm that he is officially MY GUY. Also, Sylvester Lefort was trained by Lance Storm, which makes him deeply suspicious as a potential hater of charity / Tom Cruise.

    Anyway, I like hair matches! Or at least I like hair matches where the actual hair shaving is really drawn out and poorly planned (i.e. every hair match ever), so I’m onboard with this.

    Interest Level: 6/10
    Prediction: Enzo Amore wins.

    The Merch Table: What The Fuck, Paige Fans

    Wrestling companies make merchandise. It’s usually pretty bad, but sometimes, it’s terrible. Welcome to The Merch Table.

    Every so often, @TomBlargh will look at some of the awful merch that someone expects you to buy. Up this time: What The Fuck, Paige Fans.

    Just a short one this week. I was on the WWE Auctions site today, which is a testament to just how terrible wrestling fans are with money. You’ve got people spending $360 on a used chair, over $700 on a director’s slate, and $310 on pieces of a broken table (the last of which would be seen as ACTUAL GARBAGE in pretty much any other industry aside from wrestling).

    However, nothing compares to the money being splashed around by Paige fans, who I’m now convinced are all absolute fucking psychopaths. You’ll see what I mean. LET’S GET STARTED.

    Paige signed t-shirt

    Alright, cool. It’s a Paige t-shirt – not one she wore or anything, just one she signed. Typically, these go for between $100 and $200 on the WWE Auctions site. How much do you think Paige’s went for?

    paige-shirt

    YEAH. YEAH. $2,010. WE’RE NOT FUCKING AROUND HERE. Let’s have a look at the heroes who were bidding on this incredible collectible:

    shirt-bids

    Nhronis is setting the pace here as the number one connoisseur of Paige collectibles. Do you think we’ll see him dominate the rest of the listings… or will a challenger emerge? Continue reading
