    Sexy Wrestler of The Week

    After a week away, we are here to name your Sexy Wrestler Wrestler of The Week!

    Due to some technical difficulties we did not get to present to you the Sexy Wrestler of The Week last week so we decided to count up the votes from the past two weeks and I must say, we all should give ourselves a pat on the back for picking such a great choice.

    We’d also like to announce our sponsor for the week, McDonald’s! Check out their classic hamburger, The Big Mac as well as the returning McRib. Get it before it’s gone again! I’m loving it.

    Seven Things: 7 Favorite Forgotten NWO Members

    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.

    Before Wrestling On Earth was formed, I wrote a little about this on a Tumblr page that not many people knew of. If you were one of the few to read it, you will notice there are quite a few differences in this list. I’ve re-watched a lot of WCW and it has changed a couple of my opinions as you’ll see here.

    There have been many WWE produced shows or DVD’s discussing the NWO and it’s usually always the same story. Scott Hall, Kevin Nash, Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff create the NWO. It becomes the greatest phenomenon to hit pro wrestling and usher in a new height of pro wrestling popularity at the time. They add too many wrestlers to the faction, it becomes convoluted and begins to sink the WCW product.

    In this week of Seven Things, we look back at some of the forgotten rebels of the New World Order and their legacies. After all, it was supposed to “4 life” for the whole NWO; not just the popular kids.

    7. The Giant

    nwothegiant

    The last edition of Seven Things featured a look back of the silly history of The Giant/Big Show so it only makes sense we start this one off laughing at him again, especially after his abysmal Survivor Series main event this weekend. The Giant joined the NWO shortly after losing the WCW title to Hulk Hogan due to wanting the money and power that came with the New World Order. After a while, The Giant would want another title shot vs. Hogan which led to him getting kicked out of the NWO.

    WCW would begin to trust him for the next year and what did he do? The big man stabbed them in the back again, joining the NWO again siding with NWO Hollywood to take down the NWO Wolfpac and WCW. It was just too sweet for his appetite of looking foolish to pass on. This NWO run surely had to work out better for The Giant, right? Wrong. The Wolfpac and Hollywood would merge creating a super NWO which only allowed elite guys such as Horace Hogan and Disco Inferno to be in it. The Giant was beat down and kicked out again for not reaching the standard. When giving thanks this week, please thank Big Show for countless moments of unintentional humor.

    WWE Survivor Series 2013 Preview and Predictions

    WWE returns to PPV with Survivor Series. The Wyatt Family and a couple of alligators are on the poster.

    Giving their thoughs and predictions on what to expect from the PPV are members of the site @TimWelcomed, @typicalROHfan and @TomBlackett.

    Pre-show match. Kofi Kingston vs. The Miz:

    typicalROHfan:

    The outlook of Mike the Miz from the internet is very interesting to me. More interesting than anything The Miz does on television. Many who loathed him are excited to see him as a heel again but personally, he bores me even more as a heel than he does as a face. The heel turn instantly saddened me as I’m fearful of his role growing on RAW again.

    On the other side of the field, Kofi Kingston is stuck in WWE purgatory. These two have had way too many matches over the years and very few have delivered. You’d think this was the least interesting match on the card but Survivor Series 2013 defies the world of logic.

    Interest Level: 0/10
    Prediction: Mike wins.

    Tim:

    There’s one sentence that has been consistently going through my head while previewing WWE PPVs for the last few months. That sentence could be used on this match as well. “I do not care.” I know The Miz turning heel has got some people excited but I personally don’t see him great as a heel or face. Him going against Kofi again is nothing of note. Kofi should be so much more by now. I guess The Miz will get the win here to solidify his “heel” turn.

    Interest Level: 1/10
    Prediction: The Miz wins.

    Tom:

    Nice to see Miz reclaim his throne as Mr. PPV Pre-Show. I think the only possible reason anyone could have to be interested in this is to see if Miz changes anything about how he performs, now he’s back to being a heel (though even that isn’t much of an incentive, because he never did much to change things up when he turned face last year). I like Kofi but he’s been such a mid-card mainstay that it’s close to impossible to look forward to his matches with guys he’s wrestled a hundred times before.

    Interest Level: 1/10
    Prediction: Kofi wins. Continue reading

    1. What is your all-time favorite Survivor Series moment?

    Deidre:

    Oh, man. All-time favorite moment is a hard one to choose, but I have to go with Survivor Series 1998: The Rock winning the WWF Championship for the first time; no one expected him to win the Deadly Games tournament, but he beat Mankind, won the then-vacant title, and along with that came the formation of The Corporation the next night. Genius stuff and one of the few matches I’ll watch whenever I get a second.

    Georgie:

    Shawn Michaels winning the World Title at Survivor Series 2002. You’re talking childhood favorite winning the big one a solid 4 years after retiring “for good.” Perfect moment and a fantastic match.

    Nick:

    Honestly, I’m not big on my Survivor Series knowledge. I actually planned to go back and watch every single one leading up to this years and just never got around to it. The most memorable one that led to a lot of great things was the Montreal Screwjob. I guess that would have to be my favorite, as I was a big DX fan and a big Stone Cold vs. Vince fan.

    Josh:

    Survivor Series 2008 when Edge came back and won the title left me absolutely speechless. The match was supposed to be HHH vs. Koslov vs. Hardy, until that morning when a story circulated about Hardy being knocked out in a stairwell at his hotel. The match continued on as HHH vs. Koslov until Vickie came out to announce that “he is here” and the match will be a triple threat as promised. Edge’s music hit, he came out with a dope beard like he had been in a ditch for the past couple of months, and no one expected him. It was magic.

    Hardy tried to make the save but took out HHH and Kozlov with great chair shots to the head, Edge speared Hardy, and pinned HHH. I just re-watched that clip and it has really stood the test of time. Give it a watch below if you haven’t seen it yet!
