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!

More annoying chant: “WHAT?” or “CM Punk”
Which heckling chant grinds your gears more? Question suggested by site reader @GayWrestlingFan.
CM Punk chants don’t really bother me that much when it’s during a boring match or segment. They do irk me when it’s being chanted at AJ Lee or during something I find intriguing but I get over it. They’ll die out eventually. WHAT chants, though… those get on my nerves no matter what’s going on because they’ve been around for so long. When will it end?!
I’m going with the “WHAT” chant for the reason that I consider “CM Punk” to be the new replacement for “BORING” where the fans chant for Punk when seeing something or someone they don’t want to see. Well, aside from Chicago who just wants to chant it all the time. As for the “WHAT?” chants, those are usually made for more apathetic times and just come off as bland. At least “CM Punk” chants either piss people off or make them laugh.
The WHAT? chants are lame, but nothing makes me cringe more than the CM Punk chants. I’m not sure if it’s fans trying to be edgy and #HijackRaw or if they genuinely think there’s a chance of P. Brooks giving up his life of live-tweeting hockey and MMA to come back to something he seems to pretty much hate, but it’s just so embarrassing.
It’s funny, a year or two ago, one of my goals was to see a big show live in Chicago because it seemed like such a fun atmosphere to be a part of. Now, I can’t imagine anything worse – as awful as New York can be when it comes to self-satisfied smarkiness, Chicago seems to be on another level.
