    This Or That (12/11/2015)

    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 is your favorite member of The New Day?

    Big E – 64%, Xavier Woods – 20% Kofi Kingston – 16%

    More entertaining McMahon kid?

    Shane – 58%, Stephanie – 42%

    Better manager?

    Summer Rae – 52%, Lana – 48%

    Better silly slasher series?

    Scream – 84%, I Know What You Did Last Summer – 16%

    Which 2016 super show are you more excited about: Wrestlemania or Wrestle Kingdom?

    Wrestling.

    Joey:

    This is obviously early in the game to forecast a Wrestlemania card but I find myself disappointed with the variables hitting Wrestlemania season. Seth Rollins is out, Randy Orton is likely out and The Rock is rumored to be unable to compete. The foreshadowing of Triple H vs. Roman Reigns as a top two main event is quite disappointing for me. I can’t watch NJPW shows often because the weaker cards annoy me with their structure of shows but Wrestle Kingdom looks incredible. Top three things I’m looking forward to:

    1. Nakamura vs. Styles

    2. Okada vs. Tanahashi

    3. Cheeseburger’s debut. Top that, Wrestlemania.

    Wrestle Kingdom

    Tim:

    I try to stay up to date with NJPW even if I can’t always catch all of their shows. Wrestle Kingdom is looking like a mighty fine show that I will definitely be tuning into… unlike Tom, the puro expert, who will for sure be asleep. Nothing about the way WWE is booking things right now gives me high hopes for Wrestlemania. Things could always change but I’m just not sure that company has any surprises I would be into left in it without a huge shake-up occurring.

    Wrestle Kingdom

    Tom:

    Am I the Internet’s number one “puroresu” fan? Yes, obviously. Will I stay up to watch Wrestle Kingdom? Again, obviously, and anyone who says I’ve fallen asleep during previous broadcasts is a liar. However, as much as I love the Japanese “strong style”, I’m still going to have to go for Wrestlemania.

    As many setbacks as there have been in terms of injuries and other issues, I’m still excited to see what Titan Sports Inc. does with their biggest show of the year. They’ve managed to somehow pull it off the past two times, so I want to see if they can make it three years running. Also, it’ll be the first Kevin Owens Wrestlemania and I’ll be fascinated to see what role he has – a match with Sami Zayn would be incredible and seems like the obvious choice, assuming both are healthy. Regardless though, I think the stakes are much higher at ‘Mania than they are for Wrestle Kingdom – even if it’s a trainwreck, that’ll make for more interesting viewing than just another good NJPW show.

    This Or That (11/26/2014)

    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:

    Was the Montreal Screwjob a work?

    No – 87%, Yes – 13%

    Better original WWE PPV theme?

    King of the Ring tournament – 60%, Survivor Series elimination matches – 40%

    Better Survivor Series MSG event?

    2002 – 67%, 1996 – 33%

    Superior fruit?

    Bananas – 52%, Apples – 48%

    Who would you rather see face Triple H at Wrestlemania 31: The Rock or Sting?

    Who should play THE GAME at Wrestlemania 31?

    rock-sting

    Tim:

    I don’t think either match-up would be anything to write home about. The Rock didn’t impress me with any of his return matches and his promos make me dislike him so much. I am all for Sting vs Triple H in this scenario. It’s something different and I’m curious as to the direction they will go. I think Sting deserves a Wrestlemania retirement match and if not Undertaker I can settle for Triple H who is on top of his game this year.

    Sting

    Joey:

    I’d much rather get The Rock vs. Triple H for the build. The Rock tries really hard to bring the “reality era” to his feuds when he returns as seen in his promos vs. CM Punk and John Cena. It didn’t work out too well but likely would be more suited for someone like Triple H given their past rivalry. I’d enjoy getting a kick out of the two having one more match. Sting and Triple H have no history and I’m not sure I trust the current WWE team to make up for them that makes sense.

    The Rock

    Tom:

    It’s really hard to know how to place Sting at Wrestlemania. A match with Triple H seems most likely, but even if I’m fantasy booking something completely different, I can’t think of too many options that are more appealing. Undertaker, I guess? Though mostly for the entrances. Something with almost any of the younger guys would feel REALLY weird and there aren’t too many older guys left for him to roll around with.

    Even so though, him and Triple H seem like an odd fit whereas I think The Rock and Triple H could be a decently fun time. There’s a lot of history to play on and I think the two are both pretty bulletproof as far as their positions go, so they can throw as many mean barbs back and forth without it leaving any lasting damage. UNLEASH THE HEAVY SHOTS, SURE HOPE THEY DESERVE THEM.
