    This Or That (11/12/2015)

    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, @JoeyOnEarth 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 leave Survivor Series as WWE Champion?

    Seth Rollins – 82%, Roman Reigns – 18%

    Which Undertaker vs. Brock Lesnar match was better?

    No Mercy 2002 – 65%, Hell in a Cell 2015 – 35%

    Which WWE Network special disappointed you more?

    The Stone Cold Podcast With Brock Lesnar – 56%, Breaking Ground – 44%

    Do you like The Flash?

    No – 67%, Yes – 33%

    Who is your favorite member of New Day: Kofi Kingston, Big E or Xavier Woods?

    New Day rocks.

    Joey:

    We all love the entire New Day so don’t you dare think I’m sour on the other two but Kofi Kingston is my guy. I’ve always thought Kofi was extremely underrated and above the level of someone like Dolph Ziggler when everyone was hyping him. Seeing Kofi get to showcase his personality and humor has been one of my favorite things in wrestling this year. He’s a great time as usual in the ring. If Kofi doesn’t win a WWE World Championship at some point in his career, I will be quite disappointed. There’s no reason Sheamus should be holding the MITB briefcase instead of him right now.

    Tim:

    Xavier Woods was never one of my favorite wrestling personalities but his chemistry with the other members of New Day has boosted him up a good bit. He carries himself differently nowadays and seems like a real good dude. Kofi Kingston has always been a personal favorite to watch in the ring and I’ve always felt like he deserved way more than a lot of the roster. Big E, though… He’s always had a great a personality. Now that he is in a group where he can show it off on a weekly basis he is easily in the top tier for me. On top of all of that he plays “big man” well in all of his matches. The guy is great.

    Tom:

    Oh man. Oh MAN. What a choice. I think all three are incredible. Kofi was a favourite of mine for a while, so I was very glad to see him find something that worked and allowed him to be a part of fun, prominent storylines. Big E has won my heart with the way he moves and his ridiculous taunts and so on, it’s all SO good. Like, he’s guaranteed to make me laugh in a completely unexpected way almost every night. However, Xavier Woods JUST about pips him to the post in terms of hilarious facials, and I also respect the hell out of him as a former trombonist myself. They’re all sweeties though! Just three absolute sweeties.

    This Or That (7/30/2015)

    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 in their podcast wars?

    Steve Austin – 74%, Roddy Piper – 26%

    Better WWE reality show?

    Tough Talk – 61%, Total Divas – 39%

    Better Hulk Hogan Funko Pop? (Well, this is awkward!)

    Hollywood nWo – 71%, Hulkamania – 29%

    Better Fast and the Furious star?

    Vin Diesel – 80%, Tyrese – 20%

    Who has had more great matches in WWE: Undertaker or Brock Lesnar?

    Has ‘Taker’s long run or Brock’s short run produced more great matches?

    Tim:

    There are way less Undertaker matches that I like than Brock Lesnar matches. The few matches that I think are classics are on a whole other level though and I don’t think Lesnar’s best matches can even be compared to those Undertaker matches. I do think Lesnar has had more high-caliber matches though. A lot of Undertaker’s catalogue is pretty boring. When Brock wrestles it is special and almost always hits a memorable level.

    Brock Lesnar

    Joey:

    Despite Undertaker having literally hundreds of more matches, I strongly believe Brock Lesnar has had more great ones. In his first run, I recall many classics vs. Kurt Angle, The Rock, Undertaker himself, Eddie Guerrero and others. In his recent run, he probably has another 5-7 truly GREAT matches. Sure, it seems like ‘Taker would have more but really remember the style of matches he used to have before the Wrestlemania streak became a big deal in the mid 2000s and how disappointing a lot of his non-WM matches were. Give me Brock’s library over the Deadman’s.

    Brock Lesnar

    Tom:

    When I got back into wrestling, it was probably the worst time to be re-exposed to The Undertaker – it was a few months after Wrestlemania XV and his matches were mostly a chore. Also, to a 14 year old, he just seemed like an older, less interesting Kane (which seems crazy to say now, but back off trolls, Kane was GOOD AS FUCK back then).

    This continued for… god, a solid three or four years, maybe? It was only around 2001/02 that he seemed to get back into the swing of things and started having some memorable matches. Realistically though, I think all his truly great matches were from feuds with Bret and Shawn around ’97 and then the latter half of The Streak – the rest of it is predominantly shuffling around with The Great Khali and that. His great matches could be REALLY fucking great though.

    So, even though Brock is my favourite guy to watch currently and his (admittedly smaller) catalogue of matches is of a much higher overall quality, I still don’t think he’s had as many great ones as ‘Taker. Hopefully he’ll get there though! Never leave, Brock.
