    Wrestling On Earth 2013 Year End Awards

    2013 is over. We’re hear to give our very, very, very prestigious awards.

    A few weeks ago, we gave our Whammy Awards for the lesser wrestlers, moments and memories of the year. So why not do a positive one? We are equal opportunists and love smile inducing things in pro wrestling.

    Two categories excluded were the Match of the Year and Wrestler of the Year. We’ll go more in depth with a top 5 list for those in the next few days so be on the look out for that!

    Without further ado, members of the site @TimWelcomed, @typicalROHfan and @TomBlackett give their picks for each award.

    Promotion of the Year

    Tim:

    PWG

    PWG

    There’s really nothing else that comes close to them. NJPW is great but it hasn’t been as consistent, especially lately. Hopefully in 2014 will see more competition.

    typicalROHfan:

    PWG

    I wanted to go with another option to give a different perspective from my two Earth brothers but there’s nothing else. I don’t watch NJPW enough anymore to view them on an equal footing. The other American promotions endure large ups and downs. PWG is consistently fun; all I can ask for in a wrestling promotion these days.

    Tom:

    PWG

    So, yeah, no surprises here. I’ve heard good things about the antics of the Bullet Club in NJPW but since I’m a) extremely lazy and b) deeply xenophobic, I haven’t gone out of my way to get into all that business. Meanwhile, PWG’s been really good on a consistent basis – probably not as good as previous years, but still the best thing going.

    PWG All Star Weekend 10: Night 1 Preview and Predictions

    Quick preview as this show is happening later tonight as you read this.

    With time getting the best of us and this show approaching out of nowhere (no RKO), @typicalROHfan is here all by his lonesome giving his thoughts going into PWG All Star Weekend 10.

    Adam Cole vs. Chris Hero for the PWG Title

    After seeing Chris Hero have a stellar return match with Johnny Gargano at a live DGUSA show a month ago, I’m excited to see Hero’s matches vs. the new class of indie wrestling standouts. At the top of that list is Adam Cole (baybay). It’s also humorous that the big match ROH is building towards in 2014 is happening in PWG this weekend. I do see a slight chance Hero wins but I’m riding with Sexy Wrestler of the Week champion Adam Cole.

    Interest Level: 9/10
    Prediction: Adam Cole wins.

    The Young Bucks and Kevin Steen vs. AR Fox, Ricochet and Rich Swann

    My most anticipated match of the night and of the weekend. (Cole vs. Gargano on Night 2 would be a close 2nd.) How can this not be amazing on every level?

    Interest Level: 10/10
    Prediction: Mount Rushmore kills. Continue reading

    Sexy Wrestler of The Week

    Hello, you all. It is time to name The Sexy Wrestler of The Week again. It is exciting.

    No, it is not Wednesday. In fact, it is Thursday. Thursday is the day after Wednesday and also the day before the glorious day known as Friday. Do not ever say this website is not educational because it is. I just proved it.

    This comes a day late this week because while I was searching for a picture of this week’s winner (as voted by you, the readers and participants of this site, of course) I came across an exclusive picture e-mailed to me by an inside source that also answers The Question of The Week: “Why are Brock Lesnar’s pants so high?” This took me an extra day to prepare because I wanted to treat it with the proper care that such a huge exclusive deserves.

    So not only am I fixing to unveil the Sexy Wrestler of The Week for you all. I am also going to give you The Answer of The Week to The Question of The Week. I hope you can handle this coming at you all at once.

    Without further ado…

    coleinlesnarpants

    That is right. Adam Cole retains his streak as your Sexy Wrestler of The Week. You can all give yourself a standing ovation for doing a swell job as voters. We are all proud of you and you should take that compliment to heart.

    Now, what you see here is proof that Brock Lesnar wears his pants so high because he pays Adam Cole to live in his pants kind of like a baby kangaroo. It is pretty sweet and I like to think about it a lot when life has me down.

    I would also like to take this time to point out that I did not use a single contraction in this week’s post to show my solidarity with Contraction Free Week. “Stand Tall and Never Contract.”

    Seven Things: 7 Wrestlers Who Were Probably Smelly

    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.

    This week’s topic is one that I’ve considered doing for months ever since the inception of Seven Things – the wrestlers you assume smell the worst. The problem in executing this idea has been filling out list past a few spots. I did my best and scouted the world of wretched smelling pro wrestlers to compile this week’s edition of Seven Things. Enjoy.

    7. Bastion Booger

    smellybastion

    Let’s get the obvious one out of the way first. I’m not entirely sure what the Bastioon Booger gimmick was supposed to be other than someone who looks like they smell repulsive. The gimmick hopes succeeded.

    6. Ryback

    Ryback sweats a lot, his beard looks a bit gross like food could easily get stuck in it and his teeth are extraordinarily white. I have a theory he gets teeth whitening operations in order to have the freedom of not brushing his teeth for a few days. Feel free to spread that around the internet.

    Friend of the site Josh Ketch was a recently at a WWE TV event and got into a shouting match with Ryback on Main Event. Josh exclusively confirmed to us that Ryback does indeed have bad breath. Here’s photographic evidence:

    Match of the Week: Booker T vs Jeff Jarrett (San Francisco 49ers Match on WCW Nitro 10/2/00)

    Many sites have a match of the week but ours is a little different. These matches are the ones that are fun to watch… in the non-traditional way.

    This week, we’ve chosen Booker T vs Jeff Jarrett in a San Francisco 49ers Match on the December 2, 2000 edition of WCW Nitro for the WCW Championship. Members of the site @TimWelcomed, @typicalROHfan and @TomBlackett give their (lack of) expertise on the action.

    The first and only San Francisco 49ers Match features the brilliant Vince Russo brainchild of 4 boxes being hung above each corner of the ring. One holds the WCW title and you must open that box and pick up the title. The other boxes may not have held the WCW title but they held many fond memories and moments.

    Part 1: The classic begins

    blow-up-doll

    Tim:

    Booker T and Jarrett are in the ring as four cheaply made wooden boxes hang in every corner. The lady who received Booker T’s shirt makes an early argument for who the MVP of this match is by acting like a straight up wild woman towards Jeff Jarrett.

    The bell rings and this historic match is underway. To prove how unscripted and real this and every match in WCW is, one of the wooden boxes falls to the ground before the two-minute mark. What does this box contain? Is it the one with the World Heavyweight Championship? Is there a python in there? Maybe it’s the book “Lying, Congressional Style” so the recipient can add one point (two points if they already have the Comprehension Perk) to their Speech Skill? No one knows right now as both men continue to battle it out.

    Jarrett goes to the box finally and smashes it open. It’s a blow-up doll and its legs are goofy as hell.

    The fans hoot and holler at this.  This match is wild and shows no signs of slowing down.

    typicalROHfan:

    The elderly Booker T t-shirt recipient getting in Jeff Jarrett’s grill is among the history of great fans hating Jeff Jarrett. It culminated in fans slapping him with straps at TNA vs. Samoa Joe; a classic you surely remember.

    This was a vintage Vince Russo brainchild. It’s kind of like the past generation’s Feast Or Fired. I love that the first box is a blow-up doll. Because nothing sums up poor 2000 comedy as well as blow-up dolls. The doll took more bumps than most of the WCW main event roster.

    Tom:

    “How do you prepare for something like this?” asks the commentary team, and man, that’s a good question. The appearance by a stunt granny to get in Jarrett’s face justifies my purchase of the ‘Wrestling Secrets Revealed’ VHS. Is it me or is Double J looking a little huskier than usual? Not in a bad way, mind. Maybe he knew he had to beef up for a main event run in the Dubya-Cee-Dubya. It’s an upper body business, brother.

    Every single time the boxes shake, I freak out with excitement, and it isn’t long until my dreams come true and a box falls down by itself. What’s inside? It’s a blow-up sex doll, of course! The match has to take a break as the entire crowd passes out from laughter. Continue reading
