    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?

    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.

    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.

    This Or That (4/8/2014)

    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!

    UPDATE: With Tim recovering from Wrestlemania duties in New Orleans, we have friend of the site Nightlife (AKA @AnimeKing420) filling in for him on the panel. He also came up with some of the awesome questions we’ll be breaking down.

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

    Will Wrestlemania 30 be among the best Wrestlemania’s ever?

    NO – 61%, YES – 39%

    Bigger scumbag entering the Hall of Fame?

    Carlos Colon – 88%, Ultimate Warrior – 12%

    Worse podcast?

    The Ross Report – 70%, Talk Is Jericho – 30%

    More anticipated superhero film?

    Captain America: Winter Soldier – 58%, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 – 42%

    More surreal moment from Wrestlemania 30: The Undertaker’s Streak ending or Daniel Bryan’s championship celebration?

    Two very important moments at Wrestlemania 30, which was more surreal?

    taker-bryan

    Nightlife:

    To me, a wrestling moment is “surreal” when I sit back in my chair and say, “wow. We’re here.” It’s when I have a somewhat hard time believing said wrestling moment is actually real. For Daniel Bryan’s big win and victory celebration to close out Mania, I just didn’t feel that. It was probably because it had been pushed so hard over the last several weeks leading up to the big match that Daniel Bryan was the biggest underdog of all time and him winning would be this huge, shocking thing, that left a lot of fans like myself expecting a win, and when that came, it was great, and I enjoyed every moment of it, but it didn’t knock me back like a truly surreal moment would have.

    When Brock Lesnar ended the streak, it took me what felt like half an hour of second-guessing and thinking “this is a schmoz, right? They’re going to restart the match or something, right?” before I realized it had really just happened, and I immediately opened several Twitter searches so I could see morons cry about the outcome of a worked professional wrestling match, To me, the moment when Undertaker lost at WrestleMania was truly surreal.

    Undertaker’s streak ending

    Joey:

    Going to put this all into perspective, well MY perspective. Let’s look at Bryan Danielson. The 5’7” pale dude with the strong suits of being able to wrestle long matches and come up with submissions and great reversals. What if I told you in 2007 that he would main event Wrestlemania 30 with the entire show being based around him? Exactly.

    The Streak ending was always a possibility and honestly, it should have ended at some point before ‘Taker retire. As stunning and incredible as it was seeing the reaction to Brock Lesnar actually getting the 3 count, hearing the crowd and witnessing the moment of confetti falling as Daniel Bryan closed a show that was opened by Hulk Hogan, Steve Austin and The Rock is most surreal to me in the best way possible.

    Daniel Bryan

    Tom:

    When the Undertaker’s streak was broken, I wasn’t even paying attention; in fact, I’m pretty sure I was turned away from the TV, smugly explaining to a non-wrestling fan friend about how his win was such a sure thing… and then he lost. Even then, it took Brock Lesnar going to the back for me to believe it really happened and wasn’t going to be taken back.

    Bryan’s win was less of a surprise, though that it happened at all is still incredible to think about. His natural, organic rise isn’t something we’ve seen for years – Punk’s is comparable, but that always felt like an afterthought designed to appease him and the fans, rather than something that WWE would be behind 100% and build a Wrestlemania around.

    However, Bryan’s big win still isn’t comparable to the streak ending. It had become such a big, integral part of Wrestlemania and for it to end in such an abrupt way is… well, it’s a shock, but it’s also pretty exciting. It’s one less crutch for WWE to fall back when it comes to building to a Wrestlemania, so it’ll be interesting what they do in future years.

    Undertaker’s streak ending

    More surreal moment from Wrestlemania 30?

    • The Undertaker's streak ending (82%, 45 Votes)
    • Daniel Bryan's celebration moment (18%, 10 Votes)

    Total Voters: 55

    SATURDAY: More Axxess, a casino and the WWE Hall of Fame.

    Up bright and early after the fun night of Axxess and drinks with great friends. Today’s Axxess started at 8AM, so I was up at 5AM to get there an hour early so we didn’t get a bad place in line at the New Orleans Convention Center. My friends from England, Emma and Tara, were going to be there so I’d be hanging out with them mostly, as other friends had Daniel Bryan VIP tickets and would be there at a different time.

    I brought my program too Axxess so I could get even more autographs done. I had a lot of fun, with the exception of getting up early. I got photos with 3MB, David Otunga and Brad Maddox. All five of them were all very cool, especially Jinder Mahal:

    bradaxxess

    After Axxess, we got some coffee at the Starbucks inside the convention center. From there ,we then headed to Harrah’s Casino for lunch. We started by doing some gambling, and I made $50 profit at the slot machines. It was my first time being in a casino for over 3 years and I was pretty happy with my success. Continue reading
