    Cheeseburger vs. “Brutal” Bob Evans in a pre-show YouTube match

    Joey:

    I’ve found a lot of people talking about this being the match of the night on twitter and I’ve rolled my eyes but then I think about it. If Final Battle were still in New York, I probably would buy a ticket just to see Cheeseburger beat the shit out of Bob Evans. I love Cheeseburger and he is the main reason I may consider staying up for Wrestle Kingdom.

    Interest Level: 10/10
    Prediction: Cheeseburger wins.

    Tim:

    It’s kind of wild but I finds this to be one of the best built-up matches on the card. I feel like it has been going on forever. I enjoy Cheeseburger a good bit and I’m actually looking forward to what I hope is these guys… FINAL BATTLE.

    Interest Level: 6/10
    Prediction: Cheeseburger wins.

    Tom:

    I haven’t watched any ROH for over a year and, as a result, I feel extremely well-equipped to preview this sensational show.

    I like Cheeseburger a lot. What’s he up to these days? Is he having fun? When did he and Brutal Bob have a falling out? Is this show seriously $34.99?

    Interest Level: 7/10
    Prediction: Cheeseburger has a great time and everyone is happy.

    Young Bucks vs. All Night Xpress vs. The Briscoes in a #1 contenders match for the tag titles

    Joey:

    You know ROH is NJPW’s NXT when there’s a multi-team tag match on each PPV. The action should be fine but I’ve become desensitized to these 3-4 team matches. It’s kind of like the six-man tag matches on Raw. Enough is enough. That being said, it will be fun to see the Young Bucks do battle with ANX again. Hopefully there’s a dual duel.

    Interest Level: 7/10
    Prediction: Young Bucks win.

    Tim:

    I still enjoy The Young Bucks but I find myself growing tired of their shtick. This is the second time I’ve gone through this with them but they managed to draw me back in. I get that it’s a money-maker so whatever but I’d love to see them evolve a bit more at some point. ROH is pretty boring to me nowadays but I do keep up with it enough and watch their big shows. This should be a fun match but I don’t really care too much about it outside of that. I should be way more excited that ANX is back together than I am. The Briscoes and Young Bucks have developed a great chemistry and that should be enough to pull this match through.

    Interest Level: 5/10
    Prediction: Young Bucks win.

    Tom:

    So is Jay Briscoe no longer a singles competitor? Okay. Cool. I wonder if things are awkward between Rhett Titus and Kenny King or if they’re still great mates. I would hope that the Young Bucks win this,

    ROH All Star Extravaganza VII PPV Preview and Predictions

    Ring of Honor of Honor is on PPV.

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

    ROH

    Dalton Castle vs. Silas Young (If Dalton wins, Silas becomes one of the boys. If Silas wins, he gets possession of Dalton’s boys.)

    Joey:

    Silas Young’s character is one of the lamest in wrestling today so having him become one of “The Boys” would be a positive result. I love Dalton Castle but the matches between these two so far have been extremely basic.

    Interest Level: 5/10
    Prediction: Dalton Castle wins.

    Brad:

    While this feud has not lit the world on fire by any means, I have enjoyed Dalton Castle’s work rate quite a bit. I gotta go with Silas Young here as I think the potential vignettes of the boys becoming men wearing plaid, chopping wood and growing facial hair. I do think the feud will continue.

    Interest Level: 7/10
    Prediction: Silas Young

    Cedric Alexander vs. Moose in a No DQ Match

    Joey:

    I have enjoyed the matches between these two aside from the endings and it was among my favorites on the last PPV. The no DQ stipulation should give the match a conclusion this time with Moose winning. Cedric Alexander has been great since turning heel but you can’t have big Moose lose here.

    Interest Level: 8/10
    Prediction: MOOSE. MOOSE. MOOSE.

    Brad:

    While it would meltz my heart if Cedric was to get the win and ascend to the top of ROH, I think there is too much money there with Moose. The in ring of this should be pretty damn stellar overall, but hope it is not hurt by Stokley, Veda and Prince Nana. Cedric while an outstanding competitor is just another step on the road to the top of ROH by Moose Moose Moose. *Tugboat Taunt*

    Interest Level: 8/10
    Prediction: Moose wins.

    ROH Death Before Dishonor XIII IPPV Preview and Predictions

    ROH has an IPPV. How’s the feed?

    Will Ferrara vs. Silas Young

    Joey:

    The Last Real Mustache vs. Mr. Whippersnapper.

    Silas Young has been very lackluster since returning and I can’t see that changing here. I enjoy Will Ferrara but he’s usually in those 4 man matches that are always a good time so hard to get excited about this. I’d rather see “Mr. Retweet” Donovan Dijak vs. Brock Watanabe on the PPV.

    Interest Level: 2/10
    Prediction: Will Ferrara wins.

    TJ:

    I am in tears (yea, I’m not afraid to say it!) at the mere thought of this beautiful storyline. Silas Young, noted fake nephew of Stan Hansen and writer of awful things on Facebook, represents a generation of people who look down at “Millenials” for using their smart phones or something. Will Ferrara represents a generation that works for pennies because the previous generations encouraged them to follow their dreams, no matter what the cost. This is “gritty” and “mature” storytelling at its finest. Who will be victorious in this battle of the generations???

    Interest Level: 0/10
    Prediction: Zzzzzz

    Adam Cole vs. Dalton Castle

    Joey:

    If I’m free of responsibilities by show time, I will likely order the PPV and this match was tipping point in deciding it. Dalton Castle is one of the more cool new acts in ROH and Adam Cole is probably the most valuable wrestler in the company. The match should be a perfect mix of good stuff.

    Interest Level: 8/10
    Prediction: Adam Cole wins.

    TJ:

    This is a battle of the strong style warriors of Ring of Honor. This will be a straight-up war with loads of roaring elbows and backdrop drivers and bumps on your head and streamers and fighting spirit. It is nice that Ring of Honor occasionally just gets out of the way and lets professional WRESTLERS do some WRESTLING for a change.

    Interest Level: 7/10
    Prediction: Adam Cole, bay bay.

    This Or That (6/17/2015)

    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, @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 do you side with?

    Hulk Hogan – 62%, CM Punk – 38%

    Who scares you most?

    Scott Steiner – 61%, Brock Lesnar – 39%

    Bigger scumbag?

    Vince Russo – 77%, Eric Bischoff – 23%

    Better McDonalds meal?

    20 piece McNuggets – 52%, Big Mac w/ fries – 48%

    Which would you rather main event Summerslam: Seth Rollins vs. Brock Lesnar or Seth Rollins vs. Triple H?

    Rollins/Lesnar rematch or Rollins/H war.

    rollins

    Tim:

    I wouldn’t mind either. Both are set up pretty well but I think I lean more towards Lesnar/Rollins mostly because I can’t think of any other Lesnar match that is in the realm of possibility that I would want to see. It would be another fun “Lesnar beats on a smaller guy” match and would lead into the Triple H/Rollins match better. Rollins could work in some fun high spots with Lesnar. Lesnar hasn’t wrestled anyone during this run with that kind of agility. I think it’s definitely time to turn Rollins face even though he’s beeen such a great weasel.

    Seth Rollins vs. Brock Lesnar

    Joey:

    I was very adamant about wanting Brock Lesnar vs. Seth Rollins at Summerslam since I’ll be attending the show but I’ve become accepting of Rollins vs. Triple H. Over the last year, I’ve enjoyed Hunter’s rare matches and I badly miss babyface Seth Rollins. Without The Authority, we’d get to see Rollins go back to his most exciting in ring style and the match against heel god Triple H should provide fun stuff.

    Seth Rollins vs. Triple H

    Tom:

    I’m going to Summerslam live (and ended up paying more than I’m necessarily comfortable with for a ticke)t, so this is a pretty important question to me. Rollins vs. Brock was the match I was hoping for because it’s something fairly fresh and the spectacle of seeing Brock toss a smaller guy around would be pretty fantastic. Also, it’s the safe option – if we don’t get Rollins / Brock, then who DO we get facing Lesnar? Reigns? Cena again? The dream option would be Kevin Owens, though I’m not sure how feasible that necessarily is.

    I’ve warmed up to the idea of Rollins / Triple H a little, though I have to assume Rollins is going to stay heel for the time being and Triple H will just play up the “NXT Dad” aspect of his personality a little more to be someone to bother cheering for. I’m sure they could have a fun match, but I’d much rather see Seth take on Brock, especially not knowing who the alternative would be.

    Seth Rollins vs. Brock Lesnar

    Which would you rather main event Summerslam?

    • Seth Rollins vs. Brock Lesnar (84%, 46 Votes)
    • Seth Rollins vs. Triple H (16%, 9 Votes)

    Total Voters: 55

    ROH Best in the World 2015 Preview and Predictions

    Friday PPV? Huh.

    Giving thoughts and predictions on what to expect from the PPV is @JoeySplashwater. The T-Boyz are E3’ing and Joey wanted to rush this post. DEAL WITH IT.

    061915_web_roh_bitw2015

    Dalton Castle vs. Silas Young

    Joey:

    Dalton Castle is one of the best new additions for ROH because he’s weird as fuck and very original. Silas Young is talented but kind of basic. I don’t know what to expect here aside from the obvious story of flamboyant Dalton vs. “man’s man” Silas. You’ll have to like that style of comedy in wrestling to fully enjoy this one.

    Interest Level: 4/10
    Prediction: Dalton Castle wins.

    War Machine vs. Cedric Alexander and Caprice Coleman

    Joey:

    First rant of the post – Why is Cedric Alexander in this match? Yes, I know it’s likely to turn on his former partner Caprice Coleman and become fully established as a heel. That would make sense if Alexander didn’t just end Moose’s undefeated streak on TV via villainous tactics.

    It should have been a big moment that leads to him having an important singles match on this show but instead he’s taking a step back in heel moments. Don’t get me wrong. This match could be awesome if it were just the two teams but it’s going to be focused on a very predictable swerve.

    Interest Level: 6/10
    Prediction: War Machine wins.

    Wrestling On Earth Fantasy Draft: Round Nine

    Brad’s pick: ATHENA

    athena-draft-card

    Brad:

    I first found out about the talented Athena during an episode of Ring of Honor TV. I thought she really connected with the fans in the way that a Colt Cabana or a Kofi Kingston does.

    She has a really cool finisher called ‘The O Face’ which is a diving Stone Cold Stunner. She is full of energy and is a great opposite to a dastardly heel. Continue reading
