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.
I wrote this a long time ago and never finished it until now. There will be another Seven Things later this week but enjoy my chatter about animated series until then.
Reminder: If you have any suggestions for future lists, feel free to share them in the comments or send them to me on Twitter: @JoeySplashwater.
The concept of Pokemon and Pokemon battles were too cool. The first movie I ever went to was Pokemon: The First Movie. We love Pokemon battles.
I remember the first day our family got cable in the early 90’s. The day was spent watching nonstop Cartoon Network, Hanna-Barbera cartoons to be exact. The main one and early favorite animated series was Scooby-Doo. The idea of a talking dog solving mysteries was the best.
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, @typicalROHfan and @TomBlackett 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!

Will Wrestlemania 30 be among the greatest events in Wrestlemania history: YES or NO?
Get your prediction shoes on!
It’s a huge night for Daniel Bryan and could lead to one of wrestling’s greatest moments but definitely not seeing it as one of the greatest Wrestlemanias in history. Most of the undercard seems thrown together just to fit in the most wrestlers it can. The high-profile matches are kind of weak when it comes to exciting build-ups.
The main event could be something special if Daniel Bryan wins and the whole scenario of Daniel Bryan going the distance would make it one of my favorite Wrestlemanias of all-time but that doesn’t make the overall show one of the greatest.
So tough to forecast but it comes down to one thing for me. Are you a big Daniel Bryan fan? If so, yes.
Other than Bryan/Triple H and the title match, nothing really has a big match feel going into the show. Undertaker/Lesnar has had a horrible build but should deliver in the ring. Cena/Wyatt is hit or miss. Everything else looks like complete filler. That being said, Daniel Bryan is my favorite wrestler and I expect him to deliver two GREAT matches and one of the best moments in Wrestlemania history if he wins the championship for real this time.
I think the story of Bryan’s struggle to overcome everything has the potential to make the main event one of the best in Wrestlemania history, but as far as the whole show being among the greatest events overall… I don’t see it. The two Bryan matches are sure to be excellent, but given how great a lot of the guys are on the roster, the rest of the card is too depressingly empty for me to have much confidence in it.
I’m interested in Cena/Wyatt and I think they’re capable of something special, but maybe only once they’ve had a couple of big matches together. The Brock/Taker match will be good, though I just don’t have the feeling that it’ll be any better than their previous efforts. The rest of the card is just a series of missed opportunities and guys thrown together for no particular reason. I’d love to be proven wrong and for this show to be incredible, but I personally don’t see it as happening.
Will Wrestlemania 30 be among the greatest Wrestlemania events of all time?
