    This Or That (9/30/2014)

    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 have more WWE World Heavyweight title reigns in 2015?

    Roman Reigns – 58%, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins COMBINED – 42%

    More likely to be running shows this time next year?

    TNA – 76%, Global Force Wrestling – 24%

    Better feud for Bray Wyatt going forward?

    Dolph Ziggler – 53%, Big Show – 47%

    Better vegetable?

    Broccoli – 59%, Lettuce – 41%

    Who will face Seth Rollins in the Cell: John Cena or Dean Ambrose?

    Rumor has it Cena vs. Ambrose kicks off Hell In A Cell. Winner faces Seth Rollins in the main event inside the cage. Loser would face Randy Orton later on.

    Tim:

    I’d gladly go do other things during another Orton vs Cena match if it meant Ambrose’s momentum stays intact and we get a Ambrose vs Rollins Hell In A Cell match out of it. I mean, with Cena being a stand-up guy and a knowledgeable veteran with some pull he would probably tell WWE management that he needs to lose to Ambrose at this juncture and use his powers to do the right thing for the future. RIGHT??

    Dean Ambrose

    Joey:

    It’s very difficult to imagine Cena going on three PPV’s in a row without a victory, especially coming off the Summerslam demolishing by Brock Lesnar. The booking history dictates that he gets some big wins back but man, Dean Ambrose’s momentum is way too hot to stop.

    It feels like Ambrose is on the precipice of something special and he needs one more really strong performance as a “star making night” to get to the next level. Beating the top guy in the company and then his arch rival who has had his number inside Hell In A Cell would be that. Plus, the rumor of the loser facing Orton would give you the out of Cena destroying Orton. It can and will work out where Dean Ambrose faces Seth Rollins inside that Cell.

    Dean Ambrose

    Tom:

    I want to pick Dean Ambrose, but given that’d likely result in YET ANOTHER Cena/Orton PPV match, I can’t go that direction. It’s too unthinkable.

    John Cena

    Where Are They Now? Ready To Rumble Cast

    ReadyToRumble

    Ready To Rumble was a film about wrestling. It was not a very good film but to some (me), it is a beloved film. Let’s take a look at the cast and see where they are today and what they’ve been up to.

    David Arquette aka Gordie Boggs

    Arquette

    David Arquette’s character Gordie was a diehard wrestling fan dreaming to become a pro wrestler despite his dreams being shut down by his jerk cop father. Quite similar to the current Triple H/Big Show storyline, it was quite a roller coaster of emotions but Gordie achieved both his dream of being a wrestler and his dad’s dream of becoming a cop (all in a matter of days) by the end of the movie.

    Arquette went on to have a string of bad luck after this film with horrible things happening to him such as getting divorced from Courtney Cox and winning the WCW Title. We kid. David actually donated 100% of the money made from his WCW appearances (which was a lot given WCW’s spending) to the families of deceased wrestlers Owen Hart, Brian Pillman and severely injured Darren Drozdov. Classy move.

    His acting career has been going strong (for David Arquette standards) since then which includes a lead role in one of my favorite cult films – Eight Legged Freaks. Arquette also had to work with aforementioned ex-wife Cox in Scream 4. Awkward.

    The Merch Table: It Came From eBay

    Wrestling companies make merchandise. It’s usually pretty bad, but sometimes, it’s terrible. Welcome to The Merch Table.

    Every week, @TomBlargh will look at some of the awful merch that someone expects you to buy. Up this week: IT CAME FROM EBAY.

    It was only a matter of time, really. If Highspots is a lake of questionable merch, then eBay’s an ocean. I can’t possibly hope to cover everything in one column, but hopefully this gives you a taste of what the world’s biggest garage sale has to offer in terms of wrestling merchandise. LET’S GET STARTED.

    WWF Hulk Hogan Sleeping Bag

    So, you’re planning a sleepover. What’s the first thing you need to get? A SLEEPING BAG, DUH. Where are you gonna get one? EBAY, OF COURSE! Buying a used sleeping bag is BETTER than buying a new one because it’s already got that lived-in feel and smell!

    So you start searching around, seeing what’s out there and OH JESUS CHRIST WHAT IS THAT

    hogan-sleeping1

    …okay, woah, it’s just this listing’s featured picture of a Hulk Hogan sleeping bag.

    hogan-sleeping2

    I have literally no idea why they would choose that first picture as the one to really sell it, but hey, it got my attention (mostly because it reminded me of this though):

    sutherland-invasion

    So yeah, maybe not the best picture to use after all. Continue reading
