    This Or That (10/14/2014)

    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 @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:

    Better Hell In A Cell match?

    Mankind vs. Undertaker – 55%, Shawn Michaels vs. Undertaker – 45%

    Who is the MVP of the Hell In A Cell match?

    Mick Foley – 84%, Undertaker – 16%

    Is there anything at all that interests you about TNA Bound For Glory?

    NO – 62%, YES – 38%

    Who would you rather sit next to at a wrestling show?

    Green Lantern Fan – 81%, CM Punk Kid – 19%

    Which match would excite you more: Dean Ambrose vs. Seth Rollins Hell In A Cell or Sami Zayn vs. Adrian Neville Ladder Match?

    Ambrose/Rollins inside The Cell is confirmed. Rumor has it Zayn/Neville is planned for a December NXT special. We’re speculating about the Ladder Match. Which would you be more into?



    The Rollins/Ambrose feud has died down for me since John Cena got involved. Not just because he is involved but it cluttered the storyline. I will say that while Hell In A Cell matches have not meant anything to me in a long time, Ambrose versus Rollins is a feud that seems heated and personal enough to make Hell In A Cell feel appropriate for the battle and I fully believe these two have the creativity and the chemistry to make it something special. “Special” is not the proper descriptor for a lot of the Hell In A Cell matches in recent memory. With the WWE product being so awful lately this match is the one I’m looking forward to.

    The Neville/Zayn feud has been well-written and those two wrestlers really bring it every time they step in the ring. When Zayn finally wins that belt it will be a real emotional moment. I feel like adding any gimmick to the final battle of this feud would take away from it for me, even if it is something that I know they could make awesome like a ladder match. I love ladder matches but I just wouldn’t feel it fit in the context of the feud. It wouldn’t hurt it too bad but I do feel like it would detract from the story that could be told in a regular one-on-one match between these two.

    Dean Ambrose vs. Seth Rollins Hell In A Cell 


    Both matches should be great and while it features guys known for their cool moves, this comes down to the story. I just have no emotional attachment to Dean Ambrose. I know he’s talented but when he finally gets his victory over Seth Rollins, it won’t provide anything special to me aside from match quality.

    When Sami Zayn finally wins the NXT title, it will be a big moment to me and I don’t even care about NXT! Zayn reminds me of Daniel Bryan where I can’t help but love the guy and want to see him succeed. Plus let’s be honest. Ladder matches are almost always wonderful and Hell In A Cell matches are almost always disappointing.

    Zayn vs. Neville Ladder Match


    Years of crappy Hell in a Cell matches with no real build and silly finishes have soured me on them, but Rollins and Ambrose were able to make a lumberjack match fun so I’m sure they’ll do something great in the Cell. However, I’m still finding it hard to get that excited for it because of how mixed their Raw segments have been, whereas just the idea of a Zayn/Neville match is immediately super appealing.

    I’m starting to get over my apathy towards Adrian Neville because he really is incredible – I just find it easy to forget that for whatever reason. There aren’t enough words to say how great Sami Zayn is, and the story of a strained friendship between the two is simple and works. I’m really hoping this does come to fruition and neither Tyson Kidd or Tyler Breeze are chucked into the mix to muddy things.

    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


    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.

    6. Scooby-Doo


    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.
