    This Or That (10/29/2015)

    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, @JoeyOnEarth 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 the last edition‘s results:

    Who would you rather see Undertaker wrestle at Wrestlemania 32?

    Sting – 53%, John Cena – 47%

    More promising NXT talent?

    Chad Gable – 61%, Apollo Crews – 39%

    Halloween?

    Yay – 72%, Nay – 38%

    Who will leave Survivor Series as WWE World Champion: Seth Rollins or Roman Reigns?

    Sheamus is not an acceptable answer.

    Raw_Reigns_Rollins-e1445936656540

    Joey:

    This question comes down to if you believe Dean Ambrose will turn heel on Roman Reigns. That’s the only thing that can prevent the title change. I just don’t see that happening. I don’t think Ambrose is valued enough to be put in such a position of a big match. He’s more so in the Ziggler territory. This is the show I see Reigns getting his title win. It’s a softer crowd, the story is fitting, Rollins is running out of challengers. Just seems like the timing has lined up too perfectly for it to not happen here.

    Roman Reigns

    Tim:

    Now might be the best time to do it when it comes to the story but I can see them waiting to make Reigns the champion on a bigger stage. At least one of the former Shield members needs to make a big change so Dean Ambrose turning heel and elongating Reigns’ chase for the title seems likely to me. At the moment this whole thing comes off unnatural and forced to me but here we are. Here’s to hoping they throw in some unexpected challenger for Rollins to wrestle while Ambrose and Reigns feud over who is the coolest guy in high school.

    Seth Rollins 

    Tom:

    Nice to see that we’ve all acknowledged the biggest issue as being how stale Ambrose is right now. I really, REALLY can’t stand how lame Dirty Dean is as the “unstable” face who loves cold beer and hey, where the women at?!? I’m not sure if he’ll be any more effective as a heel, but jeez, at least I’ll be supposed to hate him then.

    Also, Rollins is only just coming off a Kane feud so it’d be a real shame for his run to end now. Give the boy a couple more months so he can get that behind him and lose the title with a little dignity.

    During a Batista radio spot, the host brings up his book Batista Unleashed and says in it he dated Melina and says she’s so hot, how did he manage that? Batista says she’s a great girl, very sweet and they are still good friends. The host then asks what its like to work with such hot women and does it distract him from his job. Batista says hes a professional and separates the two apart, he says he’s been with a few of their divas but when it comes to work, he’s professional. He says he’s been with Melina, Kelly Kelly and he was with Rosa Mendes until a couple of months ago. The host jokes and says is he trying to complete the set of all the divas? Batista says they have the most beautiful women in the world. The host then asks if there’s any other divas he’d like to hook up with next. Batista says he has a thing for twins and that they have a couple of those.

    WWE Hell in a Cell 2015 Preview and Predictions

    Also known as No Mercy 2002.

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

    Cesaro, Neville and Dolph Ziggler vs. Sheamus, King Barrett and Rusev on the pre-show

    Joey:

    I’ll be honest and admit I tuned out when these six had their match together on Raw this week so at least it will be kinda new to me. I still can’t be too excited about it. They basically have rotating singles matches every week. I’m sure it will be fun on the pre-show. Glad to see Neville and Cesaro doing something.

    Interest Level: 6/10
    Prediction: Cesaro, Neville and the other guy win.

    Tim:

    I’m highly displeased with the product lately. It’s been hard to watch but I DO watch it because I’m a real fan. This is a match I’ve already seen and I’m good on not seeing it again. There are a million better things Cesaro, Neville, and Rusev could be doing.

    Interest Level: 3/10
    Prediction: Sheamus, King Barrett, and Rusev win.

    Tom:

    This is exactly the same match from Raw. Why is this here?

    Interest Level: 4/10
    Prediction: What’s going on?

    ‘Taker in Texas.

    Tim:

    I’m going to give you some inside baseball real fast. Joey is underneath me with his answer. He put his answer in before I did. I want to reference something he said as I had planned on saying the same thing so here’s what we are going to do. You’re going to go read his answer. When you are done you can scroll up a little bit or move your eyes up a little bit and read mine. Once this happens you will go “oh, I know what he’s talking about because I read Joey’s beforehand.” Go do that now. This is super necessary and important. It will not be a waste of time.

    Are you back? Okay, cool. Let’s do this.

    There’s a lot of things at play in this one for me. I’d love to see Sting get a proper retirement match at a WrestleMania if he and WWE think he could wrestle again. Like Joey said in his answer to this question, my dream match was always Sting vs Shawn Michaels growing up. I always saw the Sting vs Undertaker dream match as people going “these two characters are dark they should fight.” I’m not sure I ever even thought about that match as a kid. There was nothing there to ever make me interested in that. Sting and HBK’s styles would’ve been interesting to watch in a match.

    NOW though… well, there’s nothing really interesting for Sting to do besides a spectacle-laden build-up and showdown with The Undertaker. It would have to be a retirement match at this point in his career but they wouldn’t do a double-retirement as it would take away from the impact of The Undertaker retiring (which I’m almost positive is happening… PLEASE?). If we get Cena vs Undertaker we could possibly get one final Undertaker match that is watchable. I guess that’s the answer but I’m so tired of Cena’s character that I can’t stand him and his matches. Even if they’re good he is insufferable but whatever. NO. Fuck this. Give me Sting vs Undertaker and don’t make me see either guy ever again afterwards.

    Here’s my pitch. You reintroduce Brad Maddox. Sting doesn’t know if he should ever wrestle again. Brad Maddox had a vision while in that cave that he should be Sting’s protégé. He talks Sting into wrestling again and calling out The Undertaker because he saw that moment in the vision. Sting finds his smile and thanks Maddox for helping him get back into the game. Sting takes Maddox under his wing during the build up to the match.

    Meanwhile, you do what seems to be a one-off comedy skit with Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose backstage. The Undertaker had just returned to accept Sting’s challenge. Ambrose is daring people to pick up the urn that is just chilling backstage and no one will. Of course, Reigns does because HE’S NOT SCARED. When he picks it up to laugh at everyone for being PANSIES he immediately vomits everywhere which causes him to drop the urn. Over the next few weeks Roman starts getting really strange. He still feels sick all of the time. He only craves raw meat and buys his first motorcycle. Lights flicker whenever he walks in a room sometimes and it’s really starting to freak him out.

    The big match happens. Towards the end Sting and Undertaker are both out. The ref gets to the nine count. LIGHTS GO OUT. You hear screams. Lights flash back on. A baseball bat and the urn are sitting in the spots where Sting and The Undertaker were laying. LIGHTS GO OUT AGAIN. LIGHTING HITS THE RAMP. Lights back on! By the urn stands The New Undertaker Roman Reigns. By the bat stands The New Sting, Brad Maddox. The match continues. Whoever wins it doesn’t matter because of the 5 star classic they put on. The crowd is yelling and losing their shit. Grown men are ripping off their shirts and throwing money at the ring. Kids are being born. The Pope releases a statement the next day about the greatest match that ever was. WrestleMania 32 makes history.

    Sting

    Joey:

    I’ve never been one of the people super into seeing Undertaker vs. Sting as a dream match. My personal Sting WWE dream match was always vs. Shawn Michaels. Sting/Taker would be cool but more so if it were Sting’s first WWE appearance. I’d rather see Undertaker face John Cena at a Wrestlemania because I desperately want to see it happen once before ‘Taker retires. Cena also gives a significantly better chance at Undertaker having a great match in what I personally think will be his retirement bout.

    John Cena

    Tom:

    The Brock Summerslam match was somewhat of a return to form for ‘Taker, but I still think they’ve kind of missed the boat as far as doing something really special between him and John Cena.

    Cena’s been on an absolute tear this year, having innovative, fast-paced matches with a great bunch of younger lads, so for him to slow it down to have an Undertaker match would be kind of a bummer. Let Sting have his ‘Taker match, for fuck’s sake. Spend all the time on the intros and then use spectacular special effects to make it look like they’re firing lightning bolts and crows at one another.

    NXT TakeOver: Respect Preview and Predictions

    We didn’t have time to collaborate this week.

    It’s just @JoeyOnEarth with a quick preview for the big NXT show this week. I suggest you tweet the T-Boyz asking for their interest levels on Dana Brooke vs. Asuka!

    EDIT: IT’S THE BIG DOG HERE WITH A LAST MINUTE RUN-IN AFTER JOEY TRIED TO SHAME ME FOR LIKING DANA BROOKE.

    EDIT 2: The T Man took time out of his VERY busy schedule to pop in for a second.

    Apollo Crews vs. Tyler Breeze

    Joey:

    This match makes sense considering Apollo Crews is on the rise and Tyler Breeze is one of the more consistent wrestlers on the roster. I think we’re reaching a point with Breeze where he’s either being called up to the main roster soon or he’s going to become “just another guy” in NXT. Aside from his entrance, he’s kind of getting there already. Crews has looked impressive thus far and should get a big win here to propel him higher up the card.

    Interest Level: 7/10
    Prediction: Apollo Crews wins.

    Tom:

    ALRIGHT, LET’S GO. I’ve not watched any NXT since the last TakeOver show so I feel VERY prepared to comment on all this. How have things been going for Crews? Pretty well? Same for Tyler Breeze? Cool, cool. I’m sure these guys will both do just fine, nothing more, nothing less.

    Interest Level: 5/10
    Prediction: Apollo Crews wins.

    Dana Brooke vs. Asuka

    Joey:

    Dana Brooke is terrible. (Sorry, Tom.) Asuka is very good. Hopefully they reach a middle ground where it’s at least okay. Asuka has to get the big win here. It sucks her match isn’t with Emma instead.

    Interest Level: 5/10
    Prediction: Asuka wins.

    Tom:

    Joey mate, Dana Brooke is MOSTLY OKAY. She’s more good than she is bad, at least. This Asuka girl, I tell you what, she seems to be pretty good. I’m sure this will be p. decent.

    Interest Level: 7/10
    Prediction: Asuka wins.

    Tim:

    I went with a nice eggplant color for my name. Spicing things up a bit? Do you like it? Leave comments underneath to let us know. We really care about your feedback. Like and subscribe.

    Tom, man. Dana Brooke has a long way to go. You’re out of your damned mind and probably need to take a nap. Asuka’s first WWE match, though. That’s exciting!

    Since I’m already here I’ll just post this picture of country music legend Randy Travis someone saved onto the computer at my workplace for some reason. Look at this maniac.
