    It’s been nine years since he was last ranked number one on Pro Wrestling Illustrated’s annual PWI 500 list, but Triple H sits atop this year’s list, making him a repeat winner.

    8/3/2009

    Brooke Hogan says that WWE and Vince McMahon have reached out to her several times about a role in the WWE.

    “They are always like, ‘Hey, Brooke, when are you gonna put on some spandex and get in the ring?'” Brooke said. “But it’s just not my interest. I’m more of a girly girl. I would be good at it though, I would really kick ass at it – because I’m really strong and my dad’s trained me since I was 12 years-old.”

    This Or That (9/24/2015)

    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 @TomBlargh 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:

    Which Seth Rollins match are you looking forward to more?

    Sting – 62%, John Cena – 38%

    Who would you rather see Triple H face at Wrestlemania 32?

    Seth Rollins – 67%, The Rock – 33%

    Better WWE signing?

    Rich Swann – 70%, Biff Busick – 30%

    Superior wings?

    Boneless wings – 57%, Bone-in – 43%

    Worst opponent choice for a star wrestler’s match: Big Show facing Brock Lesnar at MSG or Kane facing Seth Rollins at HIAC?

    Big Show and Kane back at it again.

    seth-show

    Tim:

    Both of these  guys can take a hike, buddy! The Kane/Rollins stuff was inevitable and Rollins still has a long career ahead of him  to wrestle much of the roster. I don’t want to see this match but whatever. Way too much of Lesnar’s run has been spent on him wrestling the wrong people and that is a travesty. My main three dream opponents on the roster for him are Owens, Cesaro, and Daniel Bryan. We will probably never ever get any of those. Big Show vs Lesnar has history but even then it was dull. This just sucks.

    Big Show vs. Brock Lesnar at MSG

    Joey:

    Brock Lesnar wrestles so few times that having him face Big Show yet again is incredibly frustrating. When it was announced Lesnar would be wrestling at MSG, I had high hopes for him beating up a prick (Dolph Ziggler), a goof (Bo Dallas) or anyone else new and outside the box. Of course, it’s Big Show because you can’t get into October without him getting a noteworthy match or two. Kane vs. Seth Rollins is annoying as well but at least you knew it was coming and Rollins will wrestle everyone on the roster at some point. Brock won’t.

    Big Show vs. Brock Lesnar at MSG

    Tom:

    I am entirely onboard with Kane stealing the Joseph Park Esq. gimmick but I don’t particularly want to see him wrestling (unless it’s against Kevin Owens, although that’s a caveat I’d add to almost everyone on the roster right now). Having said that, I’d still MUCH rather see Rollins fight Kane than Ambrose again. Let the Rollins vs. Old Lads tour continue, maybe he’ll break Ric Flair’s nose next month.

    Unless Big Show vs. Brock is just the two of them hurling couches back and forth at each other, I’m not that interested. Give Lesnar a little lad to toss around!!!

    WWE Night of Champions 2015 Preview and Predictions

    Belts. Titles. Championships.

    Giving their thoughts and predictions on what to expect from the PPV are members of the site @JoeyOnEarth, @TimWelcomed and @TomBlargh.

    Neville and Lucha Dragons vs. Stardust and The Ascension on the Kick-Off show

    Joey:

    I’m very happy about this match. Fun little match to the pre-show that continues a story and gets new people involved. Nice way to start the show. I’m not sure we appreciate Neville enough.

    Interest Level: 7/10
    Prediction: Neville and Lucha Dragons win.

    Tim:

    The Lucha Dragons and Neville are a pretty cool trio. The Ascension being paired with Stardust is probably as good as it gets for any of these gimmicks. This will be a good pre-show match as Kalisto, Neville, and sometimes Starfust are fun so watch.

    Interest Level: 5/10
    Prediction: Neville and Lucha Dragons win.

    Tom:

    I really don’t like Stardust! At all! I get what he’s doing and I’m all for variety but his character as it is right now just makes me sad to like a) wrestling and b) comics.  Same goes for The Ascension, so I guess it makes sense to have them together, but they’ll need some serious tweaking before I get into them as a team.

    Neville and Kalisto are still very fun to watch but I want them to move on from what they’re stuck in right now. Have them wrestle each other! That’d work! Sin Cara can go back to NXT and team with Zack Ryder, that seems like it’d make sense.

    Interest Level: 5/10
    Prediction: Neville and the Lucha Dragons win.

    ROH All Star Extravaganza VII PPV Preview and Predictions

    Ring of Honor of Honor is on PPV.

    Giving their thoughts and predictions on what to expect from the PPV are members of the site @JoeyOnEarth and @BradWardFight.

    ROH

    Dalton Castle vs. Silas Young (If Dalton wins, Silas becomes one of the boys. If Silas wins, he gets possession of Dalton’s boys.)

    Joey:

    Silas Young’s character is one of the lamest in wrestling today so having him become one of “The Boys” would be a positive result. I love Dalton Castle but the matches between these two so far have been extremely basic.

    Interest Level: 5/10
    Prediction: Dalton Castle wins.

    Brad:

    While this feud has not lit the world on fire by any means, I have enjoyed Dalton Castle’s work rate quite a bit. I gotta go with Silas Young here as I think the potential vignettes of the boys becoming men wearing plaid, chopping wood and growing facial hair. I do think the feud will continue.

    Interest Level: 7/10
    Prediction: Silas Young

    Cedric Alexander vs. Moose in a No DQ Match

    Joey:

    I have enjoyed the matches between these two aside from the endings and it was among my favorites on the last PPV. The no DQ stipulation should give the match a conclusion this time with Moose winning. Cedric Alexander has been great since turning heel but you can’t have big Moose lose here.

    Interest Level: 8/10
    Prediction: MOOSE. MOOSE. MOOSE.

    Brad:

    While it would meltz my heart if Cedric was to get the win and ascend to the top of ROH, I think there is too much money there with Moose. The in ring of this should be pretty damn stellar overall, but hope it is not hurt by Stokley, Veda and Prince Nana. Cedric while an outstanding competitor is just another step on the road to the top of ROH by Moose Moose Moose. *Tugboat Taunt*

    Interest Level: 8/10
    Prediction: Moose wins.

    Which Seth Rollins NoC match are you looking forward to more: Sting or John Cena?

    Night of Rollins.

    cena-sting-rollins

    Tim:

    I am really interested in what a Sting vs Rollins match in 2015 will be like but I have to say Cena vs Rollins is what I’m looking forward to the most. Their Summerslam match was great until that ending so hopefully this one can live up to that match and have a good ending.

    John Cena

    Joey:

    I know the luster of Sting will be cool but the last John Cena vs. Seth Rollins match at Summerslam is one of my favorite live matches ever and left me wanting one more match. I’m expecting this to be the match that ends the feud with Cena winning the title back as the United States Championship is best suited with him.

    Considering he’s winning and it’s the conclusion of the feud, they will likely go all out again with a satisfying finish this time so I’m looking forward to it more. I do have faith in Rollins getting the best out of Sting but I think it could easily be a hot mess. I also think Sting is winning the title for a short one month (or maybe one night) run as a way for WWE to get extra attention and build his value back up before WM btw.

    John Cena

    Tom:

    I thought the Rollins/Cena match at Summerslam was absolutely terrific (yes, including the ending and THANK YOU FOR VINDICATING MY CORRECT OPINION, LOYAL READERS) but I’m still a little shocked that my brothers are picking their rematch over Rollins/Sting. Yes, the Cena match is pretty much guaranteed to be better in terms of actual wrestling, but the Sting match could have all sorts of bullshit (including the ongoing saga of Seth’s statue) and I’m fascinated to see how Rollins wrestles with a guy like The Steveman.
