    Sexy Wrestler of The Week

    Hello. You are about to find out who The Sexy Wrestler of The Week is. Get excited.

    Every week, people say “I can’t vote because I do not know what sexy is.” Well let me clear that up for you. You get your eyeballs and point them at someone. If you think “oh, they are pleasant to look at and have me feeling all lusty inside” then they are sexy to you. Just remember that lust is a sin and you’re going to Hell.

    Now let’s take a look at who you voted for.

    FergalDevittSWOTW

    There you have it. Prince Devitt continues his run as your Sexy Wrestler of The Week. Adam Cole was close but did not manage to tie him this week. Please return next week as we will be doing this again for you and only you. We do not self-indulge.

    Seven Things: 7 Favorite Non Rumble Royal Rumble Matches

    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, we have the excitement building for the Royal Rumble on Sunday. Every wrestling fan loves the Royal Rumble match but the Royal Rumble PPV as a whole tends to be among the best events most years. I decided to look through the history of the event and re-watch some of my personal favorite matches. Considering I write a column listing things, why not bring out the time relevant Seven Things?

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

    7. Yokozuna vs. The Undertaker Casket Match (Royal Rumble 1994)

    rumble1

    My childhood jackpot was getting to record PPV’s onto VHS tapes so I could keep them forever and have the ability to watch them whenever I felt the need to as opposed to the usual renting of whatever shows the local video place would have available. The Royal Rumble 1994 VHS lasted the longest into the new millennium and this is the match that stands out most to me.

    Still in my memory bank are the emotions of anger and sadness caused by this match! It was a basic casket match until the entire heel roster came out to beat up The Undertaker, steal his urn and all put him into the casket. Guys like Adam Bomb, The Great Kabuki, Jeff Jarrett and Bam Bam Bigelow came out each time ‘Taker would make his comeback before the urn was stolen and the group got the better of him.

    This match perfectly captures what wrestling was to me as a kid and how much I lived with every twist and turn. The sillier and more convoluted content that the 1990’s offered, the more I would care. P.S. Jeff Jarrett was a little too excited helping another person win a match. Relax, J-E-Double F.

    Better yearly PPV: Royal Rumble OR Wrestlemania?

    With the Royal Rumble coming this Sunday being a fan favorite and Wrestlemania being the biggest night of the year in WWE, which yearly PPV is actually the better one?

    wmrumble

    Tim:

    I’m going to have to say The Royal Rumble, mainly because Wrestlemania is hardly ever what it should and could be. Wrestlemania as a over-the-top event is something to experience as it has a certain atmosphere to it but that’s about as far as it goes for me usually. As a wrestling event and a gimmick I much more enjoy The Royal Rumble.

    With the Royal Rumble you get to see where the company is headed while on the road to Wrestlemania and you get some surprise entrants into the match itself. I always look forward to watching it.

    Royal Rumble

    typicalROHfan:

    While it is indeed true that the magic of the Royal Rumble relies on the importance of having a title match AT Wrestlemania, I think the Rumble is way more fun. There’s often a lot of unfulfilled hype when it comes to Wrestlemania. It’s “THE” show and things don’t always live up to expectations.

    With the Royal Rumble, it’s a foolproof format that is ALWAYS fun. A mix of feeling as if a new season is starting, the overall optimism surrounding the event and the silly yet important atmosphere the Rumble match provides will easily make the Royal Rumble my favorite wrestling PPV.

    Royal Rumble

    Tom:

    THE PAGEANTRY AND THE PRESTIGE OF WRESTLEMANIA IS UNBEATA- yeah, the Royal Rumble’s better. Just as even bad pizza is still pretty good, a bad Royal Rumble is still more fun than most every other PPV, whilst a bad Wrestlemania has a Miz main event.

    Royal Rumble

    Better yearly PPV?

    • Royal Rumble (65%, 15 Votes)
    • Wrestlemania (35%, 8 Votes)

    Total Voters: 23

    Match of the Week: Horace Hogan vs. Billy Kidman (WCW Thunder 4/26/2000)

    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 Billy Kidman vs. Horace “Not Hulk” Hogan in a bout from WCW Thunder on April 26, 2000. Members of the site @TimWelcomed, @typicalROHfan and @TomBlackett give their (lack of) expertise on the action.

    Part 1: Kidman lays down the challenge.

    kidman-horace1

    Tim:

    Billy Kidman makes his way to the ring like a true star. He gets his own pyro, has his lady-friend next to him, and even gets halfway down the ramp before you’re distracted by the nameplate’s loud electricity sound. That’s a superstar entrance. Then we get an awkward cut to a replay from the week before. Marc Mero is in the crowd so we have to deal with that for a second.

    Kidman trashes Hogan for a bit. I can always be content with people doing that. Torrie Wilson says some stuff but I was too busy counting how long her pauses were between each word. Kidman issues an open challenge. I hope he is prepared for who comes out.

    typicalROHfan:

    The uncrowned 1990’s “Sexy Wrestler of the Decade” Billy Kidman comes out to the ring with Torrie Wilson. Torrie is currently known as the girlfriend of PED using baseball player Alex Rodriguez. Yes, she is dating a famous steroid user OUTSIDE of the world of pro wrestling. Earth, this is.

    After boasting of a beat down on Hulkamania, Kidman SHOOTS on Hulk Hogan‘s comments burying Kidman in public. Hulk legitimately trashed Kidman in radio interviews in a real life context. Shades of Hulk Hogan in TNA. Wait, can we say “shades of” in reverse chronological order? Kidman talks about drawing straws and throwing potatoes (what is this throwing potatoes thing?) to see who faces him tonight. Who could it be?

    Tom:

    Kidman’s rocking the red and yellow, brother. I never watched Thunder and WOW, that crackling electricty effect when his name comes up is about as 2000 as it gets. THAT’S GOTTA BE… THAT’S GOTTA BE MARC MERO IN THE FRONT ROW! And… Ray Renaldi? Ronaldi? Who?

    Torrie Wilson’s faces while Kidman talks are REALLY weird. I think they’re meant to be sexy?. Somebody’s mom is drunkenly cheering Sexy Billy K. in the crowd. There’s a sign that reads ‘F.U.N.B.’, which is apparently something Hogan originated that means ‘Fuck U New Blood’. WCW was just amazing.

    Kidman talks about how the people love him, and while the commentators try to under-cut him and say ‘doesn’t sound like it’, the camera keeps cutting to people cheering him like crazy. WHAT ARE WE SUPPOSED TO BE THINKING, WCW?!? Continue reading

    Sexy Wrestler of The Week

    Lights! Camera! Action! Those three things were definitely not needed because it’s time for us to name The Sexy Wrestler of The Week!

    Welcome back to another edition of Sexy Wrestler of The Week where we name The Sexy Wrestler of The Week. You vote and then we do the hard work of counting said votes and then we tell you what the results are. That is how this works.

    Without further ado…

    ColeandDevittSWOTW

    This was a historical week. We had our first ever tie. Last week’s winner Prince Devitt retained his spot but Sexy Wrestler of The Year ’13, Adam Cole, met him atop the mountain of votes for his first win of 2014. So, in summary: Your first ever Sexy Wrestlers of The Week are Adam Cole and Prince Devitt.

    Wrestlers vs. Zoo Animals

    Two things we love here at Wrestling On Earth are pro wrestlers and zoo animals. There have been many photos circulating of wrestlers visiting zoos. We decided to compile the best and put them all together.

    For you, the reader, we will closely examine each of these photos and learn at least one important tidbit worthy of loving, living and sharing. Only because we’re professionals like that.

    Daniel Bryan

    koalabryan

    Featured in our How To Be The Best In The World feature, Daniel Bryan spends some time with a koala.

    What we learned: Everyone wants to hug Daniel Bryan, even koalas.

    The Miz

    mizkoala

    Another wrestler featured on our site in the past, The Miz also spends some time with a (less fortunate) koala.

    What we learned: Don’t feel bad next time you fall asleep during a Miz promo – cute animals do the same.

    Jeff Hardy

    zoohardy

    Jeff Hardy with a snake. The snake looks to be very dangerous.

    What we learned: Jeff Hardy looks way too comfortable with a dangerous animal around his neck.

    CM Punk

    KOALACMpunk

    The koalas are back as CM Punk stares one down.

    What we learned: Judging by their facial expressions, the koala isn’t straight edge and CM Punk disapproves. He probably also feels sorry for it because it doesn’t have any tattoos.

    Triple H

    zoohhhkangaroo

    Triple H feeds a kangaroo.

    What we learned: I know it’s supposed to be about the animal interaction, but is that a FANNY PACK in Triple H’s other hand? Fanny packs confirmed to be THAT DAMN GOOD (and WWE’S COO confirmed as not understanding that you’re meant to wear them around your waist). Continue reading

     News for The Week of January 13, 2014

     WWE

    • Batista is expected to debut by attacking Brodus Clay during the Royal Rumble so he can be aligned with Tensai and form Tons of Funk 2.0.

     

    • The recent announcement of the WWE Network has caused concern amongst fans used to paying $60 for PPVs, with many stating that the Network’s reasonable price point will “kill the business”. A number of individuals are already pledging to mail blank cheques to Vince McMahon every month, just to make sure that the WWE doesn’t close down and that Vince has a little “walking around money”.

     

    • The current plans for Royal Rumble have Big Show facing Brock Lesnar in a Freaky Friday match. Big Show is supposed to wear Jimmy John’s shorts and Brock is slated to dance in a diaper.

     TNA

    • Dixie Carter publicly stated that she is looking for new talent to come to TNA. If you are a former criminal or an ex-reality television star, you are encouraged to send your resume in to TNA offices.

     

    • Kurt Angle was escorted out of a local zoo by security this weekend. Angle instinctively climbed one of the animal cages and did a moonsault to prove he’s the real king of the jungle.

     

    • Mike Tenay was seen sleeping on the floor of an airport flailing his arms and muttering “Go away, Taz.”

    • Upon hearing the details of the WWE Network, Ring of Honor started working on their own streaming service but, in a sign of growth, decided it would be best not to move forward with the service.

     

    • Evolve 25 ended with Davey Richards telling everyone to kiss his ass. We can confirm this was the original plan for Evolve 2 through 24 before Richards signed with ROH.

     

    • In a recent shoot interview, Jim Cornette revealed that all of the issues with ROH during his tenure with the company were definitely not his fault. He also confirmed that nobody wants to watch Kevin Steen, El Generico or the Super Smash Bros wrestle and that Mike Mondo is the future of the business.

     

    • Ex-WWE/WCW/ECW/PWS superstar Lance Storm voiced the seductive OS in hit film “Her”, currently playing in theaters.
