    This Or That (10/7/2014)

    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 @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:

    Who will face Seth Rollins in the Cell?

    Dean Ambrose – 76%, John Cena – 24%

    Who will retire first?

    Big Show – 75%, Kane – 25%

    Which product would you rather try first?

    DDP Yoga – 58%, JR’s BBQ sauce – 42%

    Who reigns supreme?

    Beyoncé – 51%, Rihanna – 49%

    Better Hell In A Cell Match: Shawn Michaels vs. Undertaker or Mankind vs. Undertaker?

    With Hell In A Cell in two weeks, which early Cell match did you like more?

    hell-cell

    Tim:

    Both are memorable matches in their own ways but no Hell In A Cell match tops the storytelling of the Shawn Michaels vs The Undertaker match. From the big stuff, such as it being the first Hell In A Cell, to the small intricacies, like the narrative of the chair being used in this feud culminating here, all being superbly intertwined and exploding to life thanks to the out-of-this-world chemistry and talent of The Undertaker and Shawn Michaels.

    The way these two can always strike a genuine emotion by a simple move or a facial expression is amazing. I also think it’s something special to have the debut of Kane which was pretty big at the time. It’s always nice to see two storylines unfolding at once without being too much. So… umm… yeah. I’d say I like this match more than the Undertaker vs Mankind match, which wasn’t bad by (hardly) any means.

    Shawn Michaels vs The Undertaker

    Joey:

    Both are classics but I lean towards Shawn Michaels vs. Undertaker. Shawn Michaels from 1996-1997 was on another level from any wrestler I’ve ever seen aside from the last few years of Daniel Bryan. That match was an emotional roller coaster that ended with the debut of Kane, which was a big deal at the time. You got to see two stories unfold, a classic match between two of the greats and it was the FIRST time you ever saw The Hell In A Cell cage so it just holds a special place in my little ol’ wrestling heart.

    Shawn Michaels vs. Undertaker

    Tom:

    While the first is objectively the better match, the second is one of those few spectacles in wrestling that I don’t think will ever be matched. It’s also the match that got me back into wrestling as a teenager, so as much as I like the HBK / Undertaker Hell In A Cell, I’ve got too much tied into the Mankind / Undertaker one to put anything above it.

    This Or That (4/14/2014)

    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 surreal moment from Wrestlemania 30?

    The Undertaker’s streak ending – 82%, Daniel Bryan’s title celebration – 18%

    If you had to watch one for the full year, which would you choose?

    WCW 2000 – 87%, WWF 1995– 13%

    Better big man?

    Vader – 60%, Bam Bam Bigelow – 40%

    Better chocolate?

    Milk chocolate – 82%, Dark chocolate – 18%

    More likely to eventually end Daniel Bryan’s title reign: Brock Lesnar or John Cena?

    We hope Daniel Bryan has a very long title reign but looking into the future, who is more likely to end it?

    brock-cena

    Tim:

    I think we will probably get a Bryan vs Lesnar match but I think Bryan would have to go over if it happened any time soon because I don’t see Lesnar holding the belt unless he is on TV regularly unless it is a short reign… but I would assume they would want him going into Wrestlemania 31 as champion if they did put it on him.

    I am completely okay with another Cena vs Bryan match and I am sure we will get that this year as well. I think Cena is the more likely candidate to take the belt out of the two because he’s a regular and plus he can get his win back from last Summerslam. Either way, I want both of these matches.

    John Cena

    Joey:

    Daniel Bryan deserves to get a chance at establishing himself in the champion role until around the Money In The Bank/Summerslam time in Summer. Who ends the title reign? That’s obviously a tough prediction to make with so much time and so many variables but that’s the point of This Or That!

    It comes down to one thing – Brock Lesnar’s contract. Many expect the short term beneficial to Brock Lesnar ending The Undertaker’s undefeated Wrestlemania streak being Lesnar winning the title and having a dominant reign going into Wrestlemania 31. The crux in that thought is that Lesnar only does so few appearances and how can your champion barely be visible on the show? I think Lesnar’s lack of commitment to full time appearances prevent him from getting the title again.

    My prediction is John Cena gets his win back against Bryan in a highly anticipated Summerslam rematch and successfully defends the title against Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania 31 adding the luster of Brock beating the streak into that program. Personally, I hope we see Bryan vs. Cena II, Lesnar vs. Cena II and Bryan vs. Lesnar each in the next year. However we get it, I will be content with.

    John Cena

    Tom:

    I don’t see Cena being the one Bryan drops the belt to. I’m excited to see more matches from the two of them, but I think someone else would benefit more from having the rub of ending Bryan’s first title run.

    Having said that, I’m not sure if Brock’s any more likely, but having him end the streak AND beat the beloved underdog would overload him as the number one hated fucker in town, which would be pretty exciting! It’s a shame that his limited schedule means he’d never be able to have much of a run as an awful, awful guy, but it could still be fun as a lead-in to next year’s Wrestlemania.

    SO YEAH LET’S SAY BROCK I GUESS

    Brock Lesnar
