    This Or That (4/21/2014)

    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 @TomBlackett 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:

    More likely to eventually end Daniel Bryan’s title reign?

    Brock Lesnar – 65%, John Cena – 35%

    Better WWE era premise?

    The Reality Era – 75%, The Attitude Era – 25%

    Cooler mask?

    Wyatt Family sheep mask – 64%, The Shield’s new entrance mask – 36%

    Bigger disgrace?

    Wrestling’s GreenLanternFan – 60%, The Green Lantern movie – 40%

    More likely to succeed: Adam Rose or Bo Dallas?

    Which NXT call-up and former Sexy Wrestler of the Week has a better chance?

    adam-bo

    Tim:

    I don’t see either going anywhere. I think Adam Rose will have a fan base for a short few months only to live in Fandango territory. Bo will have a little longer longevity because there is more to get out of his gimmick but once they try moving him away from it or changing it at all from it’s NXT formula Bo will sink. It is the only thing that can work for him and eventually it will get tired and they’ll change it. I don’t see Bo being tolerable in any other form.

    I think they could eventually reinvent Rose and it work for him. Moreso than reinventing Bo Dallas would work, anyway. I think WWE showing a video package of their NXT days kind of explaining the characters would help a lot. It definitely would have with Emma.

    Adam Rose

    Joey:

    In almost any other era of wrestling, I think both gimmicks would fail hard but things are different now. I say it lovingly but the fan base is consisting of a more smark fan base of hipster types. The Wyatt Family has become a phenomenon with a gimmick that many were skeptical of and I can see both happening here.

    That being said, I’m going with Adam Rose. His party gimmick is more universal and easy to understand. The delusional Bo Dallas BOLIEVE gimmick started due to the fans at NXT organically beginning to get sick of him. I think it could work out but it will be more difficult to get it across properly. Rose will get over and he has a bonus in that Triple H seemingly loves his upside.

    Adam Rose

    Tom:

    Very tough to say! Neither guy seems to have any obvious longevity with their current gimmicks, especially given how similarly extravagant characters who’ve been bumped up form NXT in recent years (like Fandango and Sandow) have since been toned down and/or shunted to the side for the most part.

    Honestly, Bo’s saving grace might be his status as the brother of Bray Wyatt and the fact that we’re currently in the midst of the sensational REALITY ERA. His motivational speaker shtick might not last, but just wait until they start blurring the lines of reality and fiction to make him the Kane to Bray’s ‘Taker! THEY COULD EVEN BRING IN IRS AS THE PAUL BEARER FIGURE, IT ALL WORKS.

    Bo Dallas

    More likely to succeed?

    Dirt Sheet History: Autumn 2005

    Take a trip back to a memorable timeline in sports entertainment with the most important stories reported as fact in the journalistic world of pro wrestling dirt sheets.

    Following the timeline of the last Dirt Sheet History breaking down the best inside scoops from the Summer of 2005, we’re ending the year checking out the final three months of news.

    october

    10/4/2005

    * The rating is in for Saturday night’s TNA iMPACT debut on SpikeTV – the show did a 0.8.

    While not the home run rating SpikeTV was hoping for, this is a strong number and something both Spike and TNA can be proud of. The real test will be seeing how the show does over the next 2 months. If they can maintain that viewership base and grow to a 1.0, it will be a good sign of long term potential.

    10/6/2005

    *  Vince McMahon will return to RAW this Monday to ‘fire’ Jim Ross on-screen so that it would make sense for him moving to WWE.com Unlimited. It is said that Ultimate Fighting Championship announcer Mike Goldberg has accepted the multi-year contract WWE has offered him, and could be on RAW this Monday.

    It is unknown if their will be a storyline for Goldberg coming in, or he will be presented as the new announcer immediately with no explanation.

    10/7/2005

    * Spike TV asked TNA to remove a segment at the end of Impact where Team 3-D looked into the camera with the middle finger raised and asked those in Stamford, CT to “trademark this”. TNA had no problems removing the gesture.

    This Or That (4/14/2014)

    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 @TomBlackett 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:

    More surreal moment from Wrestlemania 30?

    The Undertaker’s streak ending – 82%, Daniel Bryan’s title celebration – 18%

    If you had to watch one for the full year, which would you choose?

    WCW 2000 – 87%, WWF 1995– 13%

    Better big man?

    Vader – 60%, Bam Bam Bigelow – 40%

    Better chocolate?

    Milk chocolate – 82%, Dark chocolate – 18%

    More likely to eventually end Daniel Bryan’s title reign: Brock Lesnar or John Cena?

    We hope Daniel Bryan has a very long title reign but looking into the future, who is more likely to end it?

    brock-cena

    Tim:

    I think we will probably get a Bryan vs Lesnar match but I think Bryan would have to go over if it happened any time soon because I don’t see Lesnar holding the belt unless he is on TV regularly unless it is a short reign… but I would assume they would want him going into Wrestlemania 31 as champion if they did put it on him.

    I am completely okay with another Cena vs Bryan match and I am sure we will get that this year as well. I think Cena is the more likely candidate to take the belt out of the two because he’s a regular and plus he can get his win back from last Summerslam. Either way, I want both of these matches.

    John Cena

    Joey:

    Daniel Bryan deserves to get a chance at establishing himself in the champion role until around the Money In The Bank/Summerslam time in Summer. Who ends the title reign? That’s obviously a tough prediction to make with so much time and so many variables but that’s the point of This Or That!

    It comes down to one thing – Brock Lesnar’s contract. Many expect the short term beneficial to Brock Lesnar ending The Undertaker’s undefeated Wrestlemania streak being Lesnar winning the title and having a dominant reign going into Wrestlemania 31. The crux in that thought is that Lesnar only does so few appearances and how can your champion barely be visible on the show? I think Lesnar’s lack of commitment to full time appearances prevent him from getting the title again.

    My prediction is John Cena gets his win back against Bryan in a highly anticipated Summerslam rematch and successfully defends the title against Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania 31 adding the luster of Brock beating the streak into that program. Personally, I hope we see Bryan vs. Cena II, Lesnar vs. Cena II and Bryan vs. Lesnar each in the next year. However we get it, I will be content with.

    John Cena

    Tom:

    I don’t see Cena being the one Bryan drops the belt to. I’m excited to see more matches from the two of them, but I think someone else would benefit more from having the rub of ending Bryan’s first title run.

    Having said that, I’m not sure if Brock’s any more likely, but having him end the streak AND beat the beloved underdog would overload him as the number one hated fucker in town, which would be pretty exciting! It’s a shame that his limited schedule means he’d never be able to have much of a run as an awful, awful guy, but it could still be fun as a lead-in to next year’s Wrestlemania.

    SO YEAH LET’S SAY BROCK I GUESS

    Brock Lesnar

    More likely to eventually end Daniel Bryan's title reign?

    • Brock Lesnar (65%, 26 Votes)
    • John Cena (35%, 14 Votes)

    Total Voters: 40

    Seven Things: 7 Observations From The Daniel Bryan WM 30 Documentary

    Welcome to Seven Things, a list that will run weekly and consist of very eclectic topics. These are of my opinions and doesn’t express the views of others on WrestlingOnEarth.

    “WWE Journey to Wrestlemania 30: Daniel Bryan” debuted on the WWE Network Tuesday. A tale of Daniel Bryan’s path to the main event of Wrestlemania 30 shows a video diary of Bryan’s weekend leading up to the big Wrestlemania event and has some chapters on his life growing up, training with Shawn Michaels, his time in ROH, struggles in WWE and the aforementioned road to Wrestlemania.

    Considering Daniel Bryan is my favorite wrestler of all time, this was probably the most enjoyable WWE production I’ve seen. The structure, the people who had sound bytes, the scenes they chose, it was all perfect. I highly recommend everyone check it out, Bryan fan or not. (FYI If you’re not a Bryan fan, I judge you harshly.)

    Reminder: If you have any suggestions for future lists, feel free to share them in the comments or send them to me on Twitter: @JoeySplashwater

     7. John Cena is awesome

    journeycena

    One of the best parts of this documentary was hearing from John Cena. Just about everything Cena said was on point regarding the entire Daniel Bryan story. One of the most profound quotes was saying the indie wrestler typecast was BS and “you’re either good or you’re not.”

    Another interesting facet is Pat Patterson saying Cena was one of the people who went to bat for Daniel Bryan when WWE fired Bryan due to the tie choking incident during the Nexus angle. Of course, many will still go on to carry out the paranoid narrative that Cena has pitchforks and holds down the next iconic superstars like Wade Barrett, Tyler Reks and Alex Riley.

    Welcome to my Wrestlemania week blog, where I will detail, star rate and fill your eyes with pictures and sometimes videos of New Orleans. Wrestlemania week is more to me then WWE’s biggest show of the year. It is seeing an entire year of stories and superstars build to one week to see who is going to be the next new star. It is the chance to see friends and colleagues. It is seeing Superstars live and just taking in what you talk about for a year in front of your own eyes.

    This is Wrestlemania week, it’s time to be cool and eat fruit.

    MONDAY: Jimmy John’s, KaRawoke and public BDSM.

    RawDaySelfie

    I sleep in to 9AM and start the day pretty early, as we want to hunt down the famous New Orleans delicacy called beignets. On the way to finding them, we stopped at a nearby convenience store to find the newspaper that has Daniel Bryan on the cover as the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion and talks about the Yes Movement.
