    Seven Things: 7 Favorite Cartoons

    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.

    I wrote this a long time ago and never finished it until now. There will be another Seven Things later this week but enjoy my chatter about animated series until then.

    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. Pokemon

    7pokemon

    The concept of Pokemon and Pokemon battles were too cool. The first movie I ever went to was Pokemon: The First Movie. We love Pokemon battles.

    Favorite characters:

    1. Meowth
    2. Misty
    3. Squirtle

    6. Scooby-Doo

    7scooby

    I remember the first day our family got cable in the early 90’s. The day was spent watching nonstop Cartoon Network, Hanna-Barbera cartoons to be exact. The main one and early favorite animated series was Scooby-Doo. The idea of a talking dog solving mysteries was the best.

    Favorite characters:

    1. Shaggy
    2. Velma
    3. Scooby

    Sexy Wrestler of The Week

    Ladies and gentlemen, prepare to whistle along as we name The Sexy Wrestler of The Week!

    The votes have been counted. The award has been shined and prepared. Your voices have been heard. We have your Sexy Wrestler of The Week lined up and ready for revealing. Are you ready? Of course you are!

    This week we will take a trip down memory lane to when this week’s winner was just getting started in the entertainment business and was actually a recurring character on a famous TV show for three seasons! I hope that didn’t give away who the winner is!

    Let’s get to it…

    BoSWOTWGriffith

    That’s right! Bo Dallas is your Sexy Wrestler of The Week again! I’m sure we all remember his tenure as local Mayberry bad boy Darling McManus on The Andy Griffith Show.

    He brought us many laughs through those years. Like the time he tried drowning Gomer Pyle in a bucket of mashed potatoes or that time Andy had to lock him up for a few days after he tried giving Aunt Bee the business! I’m cracking all of my ribs just thinking about those zany situations.

    I’m glad we all could take this journey down the good times of yesteryear as well as enjoy the newest Sexy Wrestler of The Week reveal. Hopefully we can meet up next weekend who knows? Maybe in a few years we can reminisce about this very moment. I think that would just be swell!

    BREAKING! CM Punk favorited a tweet!

    This Or That (4/29/2014)

    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 succeed?

    Bo Dallas – 52%, Adam Rose– 48%

    Better WWE reality show?

    Total Divas – 71%, Legends’ House – 29%

    Who do you side with in their Twitter war?

    Kevin Nash – 55%, Roddy Piper – 45%

    Better season?

    Spring – 57%, Summer – 43%

    Which push are you looking forward to more: Cesaro or Bad News Barrett?

    Submitted by @WrestlingFanRJ, which rising star are you more excited about?

    cesaro-barrett

    Tim:

    I haven’t really cared for Wade Barrett since the very early parts of the Nexus. I don’t think he’s a bad wrestler or anything but I don’t think he’s ever been given a good gimmick and I just do not have any reason to look at him for my entertainment. I really can’t stand the Bad News thing and it’s made him look like an even bigger joke until the last few weeks where they’ve started pushing him. It seems to be working for a lot of people.

    Cesaro has made whatever is given to him work. He hasn’t had super horrible gimmicks (I don’t remember him yodeling. Show me videos and I still will not remember it). but still, he gets over by embracing what he’s given and being a beast in the ring. I am looking forward to the rise of Cesaro way more for a few reasons. He almost always has good matches. Nearly every match he participates in has at least one moment you will remember. He has a great mouthpiece in Paul Heyman.

    I think this is a sink or swim time for Barrett but I just don’t find myself to enthralled at this point no matter how hard I try to get into it. Cesaro keeps my attention and seems to be heading in a direction that will continue to keep me watching him with anticipating eyes. It’s not entirely Barrett’s fault that I don’t care but he does seem awfully “mid-card bland” no matter what position he is in. I will say I’ve thought about these two as a tag team before. I could definitely get behind that farther down the road.

    Cesaro

    Joey:

    Most consider me to be a Wade Barrett hater and I’m definitely not a fan but even I have to admit the Bad News Barrett gimmick is taking off more than any of his MANY other pushes did. That being said, I’ve got some bad news for Bad News. Cesaro is better.

    Becoming one of the most exciting things in wrestling, I am excited to see what happens with Cesaro. Now with Paul Heyman being his manager, it adds even more interesting layers to his future. Even if it doesn’t work out as well as I hope, Cesaro is just more entertaining in the ring and as a personality so of course, my answer is Cesaro.

    Cesaro

    Tom:

    As a European, it delights me to see two of my… well, not countrymen, so continentmen? That doesn’t sound right at all. Anyway, it’s fun to see these guys with wacky old accents featured in such a prominent role right now. I’ve never cared too much either way for old Wade Barrett, but I’ll admit to enjoying some of his recent segments. They do seem to have toned him down quite a bit since he’s started wrestling again though, so I just hope they don’t go too far and remove any trace elements of fun in an effort to make him come off as a Serious Competitor.

    Cesaro’s a favourite and I’m really excited to see how his path continues, but… well, he’s going to be okay regardless, y’know? He’s just REALLY good and no amount of Swagger tagging or yodeling is going to keep him down, whereas I think this might be old Barrett’s last chance. So, just for the sake of some variety, I’ll go with Bad News Barrett.

    TNA Sacrifice 2014 Preview and Predictions

    I swear to God there is a TNA PPV this weekend.

    creed

    Only @JoeySplashwater is here for this TNA Sacrifice preview as I wasn’t aware there was a PPV until yesterday and didn’t feel the need to bother Tim-Tom for a show this insignificant on such short notice so here goes my best attempt.

    I will not be watching the show due to going head to head with NBA playoffs but perhaps I’ll catch a replay. Either way, here are my thoughts on the event.

    Eric Young vs. Magnus for the TNA World Title

    Joey:

    I like Eric Young a lot and always felt TNA did him wrong as he’s gotten over on numerous occasions in different spots, always finding a way to entertain. The fact that he’s champ and it feels lame as can be says all you need to know with TNA blatantly copying the Daniel Bryan path. Sucks for EY but hopefully he gets a decent title reign.

    Sadly, I don’t see the reign continuing. TNA has a weird track record of having “feel good” moments of surprise title wins like Rhino and James Storm only to have them drop the belt weeks later. I’ve watched some recent YouTube TNA uploads of IMPACT segments and it seems they’re teasing Abyss turning on Magnus. TNA also has a love for pointless swerves. Abyss helps Magnus win here.

    Interest Level: 4/10
    Prediction: Magnus wins.

    The Bro Mans and DJ Zema vs. The Wolves for the TNA Tag Titles

    Joey:

    Actually am very interested in this one. The Bro Mans and DJ Zema are the most underrated act in wrestling. I kind of hope they retain but doubt it as The Wolves are prime to get a long run with the belts soon. The match should be very fun.

    Interest Level: 8/10
    Prediction: The Wolves win.

    The Best of the Best of the Wrestlemania 30 Photo Booth

    If you’ve been to a middle class wedding in the past few years, you’ve probably come across a photo booth. They’re pretty self-explanatory – there’s a little booth or backdrop and maybe some props, you have a silly photo taken and that’s about it.

    For some reason, they had one at Wrestlemania 30 for the Hall of Fame and Axxess. This was an EXTREMELY good idea on the part of WWE, as it resulted in some pictures which are adorable, bewildering and occasionally creepy.

    WWE put together The Best of the Wrestlemania 30 Photo Booth on their site, but forget that – we only want the crème de la crème here at Wrestling On Earth, which is why we’ve collected The Best of the Best of the Wrestlemania 30 Photo Booth. Here goes!

    It’s Wednesday. That means it is time to name who you voted as The Sexy Wrestler of The Week!

    With today’s winner, we may have a new streak on our hands. I don’t know if he can ever beat Adam Cole’s legendary run as Sexy Wrestler of The Week but this is definitely this guy’s third time and second in a row:

    SWOTWDisneyDallas

    Bo Dallas is The Sexy Wrestler of The Week. So, it seems the majority of you have taken a liking to Mr. Dallas. I find it strange but here at Wrestling On Earth we listen to the people. Continue voting on who you want to see as the winner and we will keep counting those votes.

    Seven Things: 7 Worst Wrestling Factions

    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.

    Evolution has returned and while I consider them to be overrated when compared to the best factions in wrestling history, it led the mind to wander. I started to think about my least favorite wrestling factions so we’re doing the 7 Worst Wrestling Factions of all time! Let’s go.

    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. DX 2006

    factiondx

    Degeneration X is easily one of the greatest factions in wrestling history but the relaunch was absolutely embarrassing. Between using Nickelodeon-like green slime, dumping poop on others, having a fat naked oily guy grind on adversaries and many other goofy bits, this was terrible television. Two 40 year old veterans with power playing the rebel/anti-authority role is a completely cringe-worthy act.
