    ROH Death Before Dishonor XIII IPPV Preview and Predictions

    ROH has an IPPV. How’s the feed?

    @JoeySplashwater and @TJHawke411 are here to give their thoughts on the upcoming ROH IPPV along with their predictions.

    Check out TJ Hawke’s site FreeProWrestling!

    You can watch the ROH IPPV at ROHWrestling.com!


    Will Ferrara vs. Silas Young


    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.


    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


    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.


    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 (7/9/2015)

    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:

    More likely to leave Summerslam as WWE Champ?

    Seth Rollins – 76%, Roman Reigns – 24%

    Which WWE reality show is better?

    Swerved – 73%, Tough Enough – 27%

    Better tag team?

    Best Friends – 68%, RPG Vice– 32%

    Which summer movie will be worse?

    Pixels – 78%, Fantastic Four – 22%

    Better choice for Wrestler of the Year: John Cena or Roderick Strong?

    Who is the Wrestler of the Half Year?



    I’ve always been on the Roddy train but for the last couple of years he hasn’t delivering like we knew he could. This year has been awesome seeing him raise the bar. I can’t possibly say anyone is having the year Cena is having though. Week after week his US Open Challenge matches are the reason to watch Raw and then add the Owens feud to that and it cements his spot at the top of 2015 so far. I do wish he would talk less or talk like a normal person sometimes…

    John Cena


    John Cena is definitely the better choice. Cena has been having superb matches on a weekly basis ever since winning the United States Championship and his matches often create a “Wrestlemania atmosphere” in having fans feel like its must see. Roderick Strong has been killing it but some of his PWG matches have been boring to a high level. Cena also was in my favorite match of the year vs. Seth Rollins and Brock Lesnar so the WOTY iiiiiiiiis here.

    John Cena


    I’m still not entirely onboard with the Roddy renaissance – he’s been very good (and he was fantastic when I saw him live at the PROGRESS Super Strong Style 16 tournament) but I haven’t seen enough of his truly great matches to consider him even in the same bracket as John Cena, who’s had some of the greatest matches of his career in the span of the last 6 months or so. It’s been really refreshing to see him compete with a more varied group of guys during his tenure as US Champ, and I hope it continues!

    John Cena

    Sexy Wrestler of The Week

    I would like to apologize for inadvertently causing a rift in this week’s voting for the Sexy Wrestler of The Week. I’ll now explain what happened…

    It was any other Saturday night and I decided I needed to have some spaghetti. I wanted a whole lot of it. I had forgotten to eat the day before and was too busy to have lunch. I was starving. I had to hide my tears from important people in my life. It was that bad.

    I decided I would treat myself to a nice spaghetti outing at a sports bar in a town close by. I traveled thirty minutes to this place with an indescribable amount of joy in my heart. I finally arrived and had a seat at a table with a curious little marking on the white cloth. It looked like someone had drawn a banana or some sort of elongated veggie on it. The waiter asked me what I would like to “chow upon.” I blurted out “SPAGHETTI MAN” embarrassingly loud but he got the picture.

    “We’re out of spaghetti, dude.”

    I was stunned. I was about to lose my mind in that place and there was no stopping myself. I was fixing to have a very shameful experience.

    “Just kidding. That’s a little joke that I like to say about food sometimes,” he responded happily.

    That was just too much. What was this guy getting at? Why would you be such a weirdo? That night was rough. It was sandpaper.

    He finally left after babbling on about how they make the sauce. I had to use the restroom so I went to the restroom and then I came out of the restroom after I used the restroom. It was a typical journey to the restroom… besides the group of guys who had to be in their late twenties wearing high school letterman jackets, smoking cigarettes, and arguing drunkenly about whether Ren and Stimpy originated the fart joke.

    I sat back down and there it was. A smoking pile of spaghetti at my table. Ready to be “chowed upon.” Sports were being played on the big screen behind me. I didn’t care. I had everything I needed right in front of me. I began to become some sort of fat animal. The type you hear about living on farms, zoos, or in the wild. I was ravaging this spaghetti and I didn’t care who saw me. This was my escape.

    As I was in a spaghetti-induced ecstasy, I felt a hand on my shoulder. I turned around to see the bros from the bathroom.

    “Hey, chump! Why are you eating my ‘sghetti?” This was loud and made the whole place get quiet. Continue reading
