    This Or That (9/24/2015)

    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:

    Which Seth Rollins match are you looking forward to more?

    Sting – 62%, John Cena – 38%

    Who would you rather see Triple H face at Wrestlemania 32?

    Seth Rollins – 67%, The Rock – 33%

    Better WWE signing?

    Rich Swann – 70%, Biff Busick – 30%

    Superior wings?

    Boneless wings – 57%, Bone-in – 43%

    Worst opponent choice for a star wrestler’s match: Big Show facing Brock Lesnar at MSG or Kane facing Seth Rollins at HIAC?

    Big Show and Kane back at it again.

    seth-show

    Tim:

    Both of these  guys can take a hike, buddy! The Kane/Rollins stuff was inevitable and Rollins still has a long career ahead of him  to wrestle much of the roster. I don’t want to see this match but whatever. Way too much of Lesnar’s run has been spent on him wrestling the wrong people and that is a travesty. My main three dream opponents on the roster for him are Owens, Cesaro, and Daniel Bryan. We will probably never ever get any of those. Big Show vs Lesnar has history but even then it was dull. This just sucks.

    Big Show vs. Brock Lesnar at MSG

    Joey:

    Brock Lesnar wrestles so few times that having him face Big Show yet again is incredibly frustrating. When it was announced Lesnar would be wrestling at MSG, I had high hopes for him beating up a prick (Dolph Ziggler), a goof (Bo Dallas) or anyone else new and outside the box. Of course, it’s Big Show because you can’t get into October without him getting a noteworthy match or two. Kane vs. Seth Rollins is annoying as well but at least you knew it was coming and Rollins will wrestle everyone on the roster at some point. Brock won’t.

    Big Show vs. Brock Lesnar at MSG

    Tom:

    I am entirely onboard with Kane stealing the Joseph Park Esq. gimmick but I don’t particularly want to see him wrestling (unless it’s against Kevin Owens, although that’s a caveat I’d add to almost everyone on the roster right now). Having said that, I’d still MUCH rather see Rollins fight Kane than Ambrose again. Let the Rollins vs. Old Lads tour continue, maybe he’ll break Ric Flair’s nose next month.

    Unless Big Show vs. Brock is just the two of them hurling couches back and forth at each other, I’m not that interested. Give Lesnar a little lad to toss around!!!

    Sexy Wrestler of The Week

    Come one. Come all. It is time to name The Sexy Wrestler of The Week!

    Let me tell you all something. I had to postpone this for two extra days because the incredible and overwhelming amount of votes that came in this time around. I just could not count them all. So after hiring some help from V0te C0unterz Inc., a service specializing in professional vote counting out of North Carolina, the results are finally in!

    What made this fun for me is that I didn’t even know who the winner as until today when the two contracted vote-counters showed me who won out of their specific piles of votes. I didn’t even see one vote for this person in my stack of votes! Democracy is often surprising like this. That’s why it is so dang cool and legit.

    Jeff Hardy SWOTW

    There it is! Jeff Hardy is your Sexy Wrestler of The Week. This is his first win. My helpers this week, Bert and Glenn said it was probably because people “think his face paint is dope” or “maybe they feel they owe him something.” I think it is just because our voters are good people and can find the sexy in anyone.

    One final thank you to Bert and Glenn from V0te C0unterz Inc. They were very adamant about doing their job fast and precise for you, the voters. They even put sugar on their nose when they felt sleepy and carried around light bulbs in case they were forced to count in the dark! That’s dedication. I’ll definitely be using their services again.

    Seven Things: 7 Wrestling Trades

    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.

    One of the most interesting concepts in sports is trades. The ability to see athletes switch teams when both parties believe they are better from swapping players. Always a curiosity of mine, I frequently imagine a world where wrestling promotions make trades of talent.

    In the past, we’ve seen an unofficial trade of “one night only” appearances by WWE and TNA. Ric Flair was allowed to appear at the WWE Hall of Fame despite being a member of the TNA roster and WWE active star Christian Cage appeared on a TNA PPV to cut a promo & introduce a highlight video package that celebrated TNA’s anniversary on the apropos named event Slammiversary.

    That “trade” did not work out so well as Flair didn’t live up to his word to TNA (Ric Flair being unprofessional? Who knew?!) and certain parties being unhappy (TNA getting embarrassed? Who knew?!?! x 2) so obviously trades would realistically be problematic. Given money, contracts and many more factors, there is a sea of reasons that will prevent it from ever happening but it’s quite the fun topic to discuss. The criteria for these trades are simple. Sometimes wrestlers get stale or have been in a company so long, sometimes they just are not being used well, sometimes they seem to be a better fit to another company.

    The top 7 trades should be based off some of these, if not all. Without further ado, here are my 7 Wrestling Trades in today’s wrestling climate.

    Reminder: If you have any suggestions for future lists, feel free to share them in the comments or send them to me on Twitter: @typicalROHfan.

    7. Jeff Hardy (to WWE) for Batista (to TNA)

    trades1

    While it may only be two months in, I think even the most diehard WWE supporters can admit the Dave Batista return did not work out the way WWE intended. Brought back as a face meant to spark Wrestlemania and somewhat fill the void of what The Rock has brought to the road to Wrestlemania last few years, Batista was greeted with utter disdain by the WWE faithful. A mix of liking their babyface stars at the time more than him, WWE severely overrating the legacy of Batista and just poor booking led to Batista having to turn heel and basically be a 2nd tier player in his own Wrestlemania program.

    Meanwhile, Jeff Hardy is in TNA. As Willow. It doesn’t take much to put 2+2 together and see that Jeff is behind this idea. TNA’s last “legacy” asset, Hardy sells more tix than anyone else on their roster, a facet that TNA is struggling with. Without being able to offer as many things as WWE, TNA’s biggest pro would be to offer Hardy some creative respect and allow him to do something like Willow. The problem? Willow is crazy. And not good crazy.

    Flipping these two would improve both of their uses. Hardy still can go when motivated and I believe fans would gravitate towards him more than Batista. For all his faults, Hardy is still a likeable dude and Batista still seems like the biggest douchebag on the planet. Batista just doesn’t fit well in today’s WWE and strange to say, would be better off working his style in TNA. Plus the Guardians of the Galaxy buzz is doubtful to be a big help to WWE as you can barely tell it’s even him in that movie. A promotion like TNA is more starved for the promoting that would be minimal in a WWE bubble but massive for TNA.

    Wrestlers vs. Zoo Animals

    Two things we love here at Wrestling On Earth are pro wrestlers and zoo animals. There have been many photos circulating of wrestlers visiting zoos. We decided to compile the best and put them all together.

    For you, the reader, we will closely examine each of these photos and learn at least one important tidbit worthy of loving, living and sharing. Only because we’re professionals like that.

    Daniel Bryan

    koalabryan

    Featured in our How To Be The Best In The World feature, Daniel Bryan spends some time with a koala.

    What we learned: Everyone wants to hug Daniel Bryan, even koalas.

    The Miz

    mizkoala

    Another wrestler featured on our site in the past, The Miz also spends some time with a (less fortunate) koala.

    What we learned: Don’t feel bad next time you fall asleep during a Miz promo – cute animals do the same.

    Jeff Hardy

    zoohardy

    Jeff Hardy with a snake. The snake looks to be very dangerous.

    What we learned: Jeff Hardy looks way too comfortable with a dangerous animal around his neck.

    CM Punk

    KOALACMpunk

    The koalas are back as CM Punk stares one down.

    What we learned: Judging by their facial expressions, the koala isn’t straight edge and CM Punk disapproves. He probably also feels sorry for it because it doesn’t have any tattoos.

    Triple H

    zoohhhkangaroo

    Triple H feeds a kangaroo.

    What we learned: I know it’s supposed to be about the animal interaction, but is that a FANNY PACK in Triple H’s other hand? Fanny packs confirmed to be THAT DAMN GOOD (and WWE’S COO confirmed as not understanding that you’re meant to wear them around your waist). Continue reading

    The Merch Table: TNA Reviews Special

    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: TNA REVIEWS SPECIAL.

    I’ve said it before, but it bears repeating – the TNA online shop is complete anarchy. To log on to ShopTNA.com is to tumble down a rabbit hole into a fevered wonderland of bewildering merch and shill videos. However, one of the most fascinating and insane things about the site is something I’ve not really covered before – the customer reviews.

    Now, they call them reviews, but that’s a little misleading. It’s completely unmoderated, so the comments range from personal messages meant for the wrestlers and rants aimed at the TNA creative team to fan-on-fan bickering and ramblings which just make no sense at all. It’s incredible, so I’ve collected a few of my favourites below. LET’S GET STARTED.

    Velvet Sky t-shirt

    velvet-shirt

    velvet-shirt-review

    The best way of proving to the world that you don’t care about what they think is always to go out of your way to tell everyone just that. Good job, Steve! You’ve demonstrated you’re definitely not a perv. Continue reading

    Wrestling On Earth Fantasy Draft: Introduction and Round One

    Everyone thinks they could run their own wrestling company, but we’re determined to prove it, with the Wrestling On Earth Fantasy Draft!

    Making their picks in the following order will be:

    Here’s the scenario that was presented to them:

    “With a financial backer, you will be starting a brand new promotion with a small TV deal (similar to TNA’s), with your goal being to be a profitable company that stays in business as long as possible.

    You will each draft a total of 12 performers (including one female wrestler and one non-wrestler) over the course of 12 rounds (in the spirit of John Cena movies, obviously).”

    The rules are as follows:

    • Only active wrestlers are allowed.
    • Wrestlers from anywhere in the world or any promotion are allowed.
    • You can only pick as many as THREE male WWE wrestlers and THREE male TNA wrestlers. After that, you must pick wrestlers outside of WWE and TNA.
    • Similar to the NFL fantasy having kicker and defense, at least one of the twelve picks MUST be a female wrestler and at least one MUST be a non-wrestler (i.e. an announcer/booker/agent/whatever you want). Neither the female wrestler or the non-wrestler will count as one of your three WWE picks or three TNA picks (so you can have three WWE male wrestlers and three TNA male wrestlers, and still choose a female wrestler or non-wrestler from WWE and TNA).
    • Tag teams will count as one pick, but the tag team must be current and you must intend to use them as a tag team (i.e. you couldn’t pick The Shield with the intention of using Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns as singles wrestlers).

    So now we’ve got that out the way, let’s see who the first round picks are! Continue reading
