    Survivor Series 2014 Preview and Predictions

    A wise human once said “you get what you pay for.”

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

    WWESurvivorSeries2014

    Fandango vs. someone on the pre-show

    Joey:

    I like Johnny Curtis but the gimmick has no legs. Somehow Fandango has gone down in valet quality through the years and is at a new low with Rosa Mendes.

    Interest Level: 1/10
    Prediction: Fandango wins.

    Tim:

    Two of my least favorite wrestlers in a match. Fandango? Nah. Horrible character. Someone? Nah again. Have you seen their haircut? Total jobbers here. I’ll be skipping the pre-show getting myself pumped for the actual event. Who will survive this series? Probably not me.

    Interest Level: 0/10
    Prediction: Someone wins.

    Tom:

    I fucking love Fandango, though mostly as a commentary presence. I still think back to him doing a Fonzie impression on a Raw a few months ago and it just being the most amazing thing. No idea what this is all about but I can confirm that it’s one of the few things I’m looking forward to.

    Interest Level: 9/10
    Prediction: Fandango is amazing.

    Team Paige (Paige, Cameron, Layla and Summer Rae) vs. Team Fox (Alicia Fox, Emma, Naomi and Natalya)

    Joey:

    Good grief. Maybe it will turn into Paige vs. Naomi.

    Interest Level: 0/10
    Prediction: Team Paige wins.

    Tim:

    Paige has three good opponents on the other team in Naomi, Nattie, and Emma. It doesn’t matter though. This match will be quick and oh my god at the roll-ups.

    Interest Level: 3/10
    Prediction: Team Paige wins.

    Tom:

    Alicia Fox is a goodie now? What’s going on? WHAT’S GOING ON?

    Interest Level: 2/10
    Prediction: Everyone gets eliminated in about four minutes.

    Sexy Wrestler of The Week

    Something bad happened to me so let’s name The Sexy Wrestler of The Week right now. Oh god.

    Okay. I will not be able to count your votes because they are all at home on my desk and I’m in THE 70’s! Or at least I think I am. Let me tell you about my day.

    It hasn’t been good. I picked up a rusty knife that was sitting outside of my window and was instantly transported to this weird place. I vomited everywhere and I am not about to change into these ridiculous clothes everyone is wearing. It smells like a damned skunk everywhere I go and if someone is wearing a suit it looks like it is two sizes too big for them. Same as it ever was? I think not.

    It doesn’t seem like the 70’s I have read about in modern magazines mainly because the sky is pure white, Ford and Nixon are BOTH presidents, and there are TWO oil crises going on. Also, there are ghosts of people that are still alive? This sucks. I can’t even watch animated films because all they have is hand-drawn bullshit. My eyes aren’t made out of cavemen, sorry. Where the fuck is Pixar?!

    I don’t know if I will ever get back but I will be able to communicate because they have wi-fi here at this Wendy’s. All I know is that this is definitely The 70’s because the date on this newspaper clearly says “The 70’s” and a lot of faces you’ve seen floating around on VH1 are here but all they do is point and say “I love this.”

    SWOTWBrunoSammartino

    I can’t count your votes this week so I am declaring Bruno Sammartino The Sexy Wrestler of The Week because I am a true wrestling fan and only keep pictures of him on my laptop (which is now wood panelled) at all times. Hopefully I can get back to the real world where I can actually open beer cans without hurting myself.

    * The word going around backstage at last night’s Turning Point pay-per-view was that Scott Hall no-showed the event due to “food poisoning.” There was a tremendous amount of backstage heat on Hall as the company had been promoting the return of The Outsiders for weeks.

    Wade Keller is reporting that it is unknown if Kevin Nash was really upset following Samoa Joe’s promo where he was grouped with Scott Hall. Nash was said to be in a pretty good mood leading into the pay-per-view.

    12/3/2007

    * TNA President Dixie Carter held a meeting today offering everyone in the company their release if they wanted it. Only Senshi (aka Low Ki) took up Carter’s offer. So well, it looks like he’s through with TNA.

    this-or-that

    This Or That (11/18/2014)

    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:

    Better authority figure?

    Mick Foley – 92%, Steve Austin – 8%

    Who did WWE miss out on more?

    AJ Styles – 65%, Ricochet – 35%

    Who do you care about more?

    Luke Harper – 73%, Bray Wyatt– 27%

    Which film do you think will be better?

    Interstellar – 52%, Hunger Games: Mockingjay – 48%

    Was the Montreal Screwjob a work: Yes or No?

    Was it planned all along or was it…. real?

    ToTBret

    Tim:

    It was totally a work. Don’t be a jab tonier nerd. It might have worked itself into a shoot but I think it was mostly a work. The timing of The Wrestling With Shadows documentary being filmed to a lot of the way things went down after the match on-air seem highly suspicious to me. I don’t really know. Part of me wants to think it was real but I really would like to think it was a stroke of genius and was really a work.

    Yes

    Joey:

    The stellar Wrestling With Shadows documentary always makes me question if it was a work with the convenience of it being filmed but I can’t imagine it being all staged out so perfectly. Wrestling is full of egos and there’s no way that either Bret or Shawn wouldn’t have blurted out it was a work at some point during their time periods on the outs with WWE.

    No

    Tom:

    Was it a work? No. However, I do have my suspicions that Bret was a jabronie mark without a life that don’t know it a work when you work a work and work yourself into a shoot. I do wish we could get a 2014 version of Wrestling With Shadows though. Imagine if a documentary crew had been following CM Punk right around the time he walked out, what a great time that’d be. Just ol’ Philip Brooks saying obnoxious things and then some delicious backstage bust-ups.

    No

    WWE

    • With The Great Khali’s departure, WWE will be donating the bamboo that made up The Punjabi Prison to the World Wildlife Fund to show there is no ill will.

     

    • Roman Reigns was the main wrestler spokesman for WWE 2K15 because WWE thought that if a wrestler who was not ready for the big stage hyped a game that was not ready for release, they would cancel each other out.

     

    • Dean Ambrose makes little anarchy signs in his alphabet soup using the O’s and A’s. He throws all of the other letters up against a wall.

    TNA

    • With TNA’s future in doubt, Taz is petitioning NJPW to start “The Bullet Club: Black and Orange.”

    Before we start, here’s last week‘s results:

    Which item would you rather have received at a show?

    Bret Hart’s sunglasses – 80%, The Rock’s elbow pad – 20%

    More exciting 2015 debut?

    Daniel Bryan’s book – 56%, Avengers: Age of Ultron – 44%

    Who would you rather have a two hour long conversation with?

    Taz – 84%, Michael Elgin – 16%

    Better Pixar film?

    Up – 55%, Finding Nemo – 45%

    Better authority figure: Steve Austin or Mick Foley?

    Who was better as a general manager/commissioner of WWE?

    austinfoley

    Tim:

    Steve Austin never seemed right as the GM to me. He had some funny moments but it seemed against character in a few ways not to mention he was still probably the most entertaining part of the show every week and could easily overshadow many of the active wrestlers. Mick Foley was fun and brought an enjoyable vibe to the show. It is always nice to have a face authority figure and I believe Mick Foley was one of the best.

    Mick Foley 

    Joey:

    Steve Austin was entertaining as co-GM with Eric Bischoff but his personality and star power would overtake the show. Mick Foley did an excellent job at being endearing and adding some entertaining segments but was just a guy who happened to be commish.

    I’d say Foley was the best authority figure WWE had in the baby face role. When I watch 2003 RAW episodes or PPV’s, I look out for Austin segments. When I watch 2001 WWE content, I forget Foley was the Commissioner and am greeted with some pleasant memories.

    Mick Foley

    Tom:

    I was having a sabattical from wrestling while Stone Cold was Raw’s sheriff, though from what I’ve seen, it seems like it made for some great moments. However, Mick Foley’s run as commissioner was unbeatable and that period still stands as my favourite in WWE history. If I had to pick one of them to come back to be commish these days though, I’d have to go for ol’ Stone Cold – I really enjoy his new ‘podcast dad’ persona, whereas Foley can be a little cringey sometimes.

    Mick Foley

    WWE

    • WWE is trying to figure out a way to put John Cena‘s face and logos on other wrestlers’ t-shirts without hurting their feelings.

     

    • While Roman Reigns taking acting classes has been widely reported on, it should be noted that The Miz was told to take HVAC classes to learn how to get heat.

     

    • Chris Jericho is being paid in scarves and vodka to work the WWE European tour. Word is that he also negotiated the Grumpy Cat deal.

    Bullet Point Reviews: ROH TV (AJ Styles vs. Matt Sydal)

    We watch wrestling shows. We will talk about wrestling shows.

    @JoeySplashwater watched ROH TV last week. Here are his thoughts.

    Show open

    • Cute little Matt Sydal backstage promo. Sydal talks about wanting to prove himself, he loves wrestling, all that jazz.

     

    • The very outdated ROH TV show open is still around. Davey Richards is the most seen person in the video and his last ROH appearance was a full year ago.

     

    Mark Briscoe vs. Caprice Coleman

    • Short opening match with nothing too noteworthy. It was fine and both guys looked good.

     

    • Caprice Coleman has done a very good job in his sporadic TV appearances. A great utility player of sorts to have on the roster.

     

    • Mark Briscoe got the win to re-establish himself as a threat in ROH to actually win matches.

     

    • It was a fun showcase of the two but I wish either of them had more purpose on the show. It’s hard to care when a match result doesn’t matter.

     

    • Match result: Mark Briscoe over Caprice Coleman.

    Sexy Wrestler of The Week

    Hello. This is the naming of The Sexy Wrestler of The Week. Enjoy.

    …And we are back. Another groovy week down and a whole lifetime full of sexy wrestlers to go. The votes were counted by me with extreme care. I decided to make a week out of it. I had to make a week out of it because there were so many votes. Holy moly! I kept a log of my Vote Count Vacation. It changed me. Let’s jump in.

    Day One: I decided on the trip. Where would I go to relax and count votes? There was only one real answer. A log cabin in the dense forests of Michigan. I made my reservations and packed only the bare essentials. From this point on I would be living without any conveniences.

    Day Two: I woke up and jumped on the airplane to Michigan. As I landed I breathed in the toxic fumes of trees and wildlife. “Oh, there’s The Great Lake,” is something I would have said to you had you been there with me but you weren’t because you probably couldn’t handle it. I had a taxi take me to MichiCabin, the really cool name the owner, Dale, had named this cabin. It’s “Michigan” and “cabin” put together. I think the official term for that is “word-sex” but Dale called it something way worse! What a character. This cabin fucking sucked.

    Day Three: As I woke up from a horrid night of sleep I thought about going fishing but I hate the outdoors so much. It’s so hot and nasty. There are bugs and you always have to be on the look out for deviants and trolls. No thanks! So I got out of the bed and that’s the last thing I remember.

    Day Four: I wake up in a stupor. Dale is sitting next to my bed. “Someone forgot to plug in overnight,” he said. You see, I’m a robot and I had forgotten to charge my batteries. It was really embarrassing but at least Dale was there to walk into the cabin I had rented from him to check on me. I decided I had been through enough and that tomorrow I would call it quits and go home early. First though, I must count these darn votes from the beautiful rays of sunshine I call The Sexy Wrestler of The Week Community!

    Day Five: I did not get around to counting the votes from the night before and would not have time on this day either because I’m traveling home. I had to take a bus because Dale ended up being a deviant and stole my return flight tickets out of the cubbie hole he had labeled “important belongings” in the cabin. Tomorrow though.

    Day Six: I wake up and my wild hippie friend Derek is knocking on my door. It’s been years and he needed a place to stay, so of course I let him have my couch. After I got done helping him move my old couch down to the empty alleyway behind Capiche Cove (a local bar known for it’s stupid ass name) he told me to get some rest. He was going to take me on a “spirit quest” the next day. This interested me because I’ve never had a spirit before. I’m a robot and my Christian beliefs dictate that I can’t get to Heaven without a soul which is probably the same as a spirit, right?

    Day Seven: [REDACTED]

    …So yeah, people of the world. It was a wild ride but here we are. I saw all of the votes flash before my eyes and it was rad. It was like a vortex or something. You ever seen one of those? Anyway, so… here it is.

    CesaroSWOTW

    When I saw who won I had this appear in the night sky. It was life changing and reaffirmed all I didn’t know in the world, okay? It was totally rad. So yeah, The Sexy Wrestler of The Week is Cesaro. Good job, dudes and dudettes. Keep on voting. Capiche?
