    This Or That (5/13/2015)

    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:

    Will Roman Reigns win the WWE Championship in 2015?

    No – 58%, Yes – 42%

    Better tag team?

    Cesaro and Tyson Kidd – 77%, The New Day – 23%

    Where would you rather see Sami Zayn wrestle full time?

    Raw – 73%, NXT – 27%

    Better Netflix hit series?

    Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt – 51%, Daredevil – 49%

    More likely to wrestle a match at Wrestlemania 32: Hulk Hogan or Ronda Rousey?

    Shoot attraction stars, brother.

    rousey-hulk

    Tim:

    I really don’t think Ronda Rousey will be allowed to wrestle. I can’t make much sense out of Dana White letting her do that. I think it would be awesome but we are way more likely to get Hulk Hogan’s farewell match or whatever the hell it is he’s been talking about for years now. If they do that he’ll have to be the hot tag in a tag match, right? He can’t go out and have a whole match by himself. Anyway, I see him back in the ring at Wrestlemania 32 way before I can see Rousey.

    Hulk Hogan

    Joey:

    I just can’t see Dana White allowing his biggest attraction to risk injury and make so much money for WWE unless he gets a large cut out of this. I also don’t think Vince McMahon will pay Dana White to use Ronda Rousey. Maybe she’ll be in the corner of The Rock when he faces Triple H but I just don’t think the politics allows her to wrestle an actual match.

    Hulk Hogan may get a weird tag match or some sort of a match that protects his limitations while giving him a leg drop and celebration in Dallas. Hogan just has to convince Vince McMahon one more time. The Ronda Rousey scenario faces more hurdles.

    Hulk Hogan

    Tom:

    I have no idea how UFC contracts work but old Dana “As Real As It Gets” White seemed pretty set on young Ronda not getting into the graps properly. So, while her showing up for another segment could happen, I don’t imagine an actual match will.

    As for the Hulkster, he’s in the greatest shape of his LIFE. Don’t believe it? Just ask him, brother! He’s ready to pose, deliver some half-speed punches and deliver one (1) powerslam to a wrestler no heavier than 220 pounds ***PLEASE NOTE, NO LEGS WILL BE DROPPED, THIS IS NON-NEGOTIABLE***.

    This Or That (3/24/2015) Wrestlemania Edition

    Everybody loves binary decisions, especially wrestling fans! In This Or That, we’ve forced ourselves to choose between two options that relate to wrestling.

    Better wrestler?

    Better food?

    Fish and chips – 75%, Meat pie – 25%

    More valuable to Wrestlemania history: The Undertaker or Shawn Michaels?

    taker-shawn

    Tim:

    The Undertaker and his streak became more important for Wrestlemania later on. I think his two matches with Shawn Michaels, the Wrestlemania 27 match against Triple H, and his match against CM Punk were not only great but pretty important to those specific Wrestlemanias. Besides the matches I just named there are no Undertaker matches at Wrestlemania that I actively go back and watch.

    Shawn Michaels definitely had a few of his own Wrestlemania clunkers but there was always something about him that captivated me. He just oozed charisma. As a kid who was raised on WCW, HBK was the main reason to ever get excited about a Wrestlemania. Now that I’m older HBK is still one of, if not THE, biggest reason to go back and watch old Wrestlemanias on the WWE Network. You just knew you were going to see a star do what he does best even if the chemistry wasn’t right or the build was shitty. When The Undertaker is in a boring or just plain bad match he does not grab my attention at all. Without the right build or the right opponent, The Undertaker at Wrestlemania was and is just an entrance.

    Shawn Michaels

    Joey:

    Guess what – half of The Undertaker’s Wrestlemania matches are unwatchable. They started to get better in the 2000’s but didn’t become as legendary as they are viewed until Shawn Michaels and ‘Taker had arguably the best match of all time at Wrestlemania 25.

    The crazy thing is you can debate it wasn’t even Michaels best Wrestlemania match. His bouts with Kurt Angle, Chris Jericho, Triple H, Chris Benoit and others could rival it based on your preference. Not to mention all the other classics he had over the years. Undertaker may have meant more for a few years but in the bigger picture, Michaels provided better matches, better moments and will always stand the test of time.

    Shawn Michaels

    Tom:

    I came into this assuming that it’d have to be The Undertaker, but thinking back, he really did have too many clunkers to take it. Not all of Shawn’s were classics, but he was still almost always in the best match on the card. He was also pretty much responsible for solidifying Undertaker’s Wrestlemania legacy and making “The Streak” the attraction it became, so yeah, gonna have to go for HBK here.

    This Or That (8/19/2014)

    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:

    Should the WWE champion ever be a “part time” wrestler?

    Yes – 82%, No – 18%

    Lower moment from Raw?

    Megan Miller – 70%, “Deportlandia” – 30%

    Which birthday party would you rather attend?

    Billy Kidman’s – 60%, Hulk Hogan’s – 40%

    More loved Robin Williams ’90s family film?

    Jumanji – 53%, Mrs. Doubtfire – 47%

    Who would you rather see face Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania 31: Roman Reigns or The Rock?

    They’re cousins or something, and also two of the most likely opponents for Brock at ‘Mania, but which one would you rather see Lesnar face?

    rock-roman-reigns

    Tim:

    Can I pick neither? I just don’t feel like watching either match. I do believe the right choice is to have an up-and-comer take down the monster that is Lesnar but to really maximize on it the guy would have to be able to make you sympathize with him (like Daniel Bryan…). Reigns does not have this. He hasn’t looked to good without The Shield and has not given me one reason to believe he can carry the company.

    A potential match with The Rock would be excruciatingly boring but if that means Lesnar wins I say this is the way to go until you find the right person to beat Lesnar. It would be a shame to waste such a potentially huge star-making moment on someone who will flounder out.

    The Rock

    Joey:

    I have to go with my main man The “Dwayne” Rock as the kids on the internet like to call him. These two had a match at Summerslam 2002 that was one of my favorite matches of all time. A rare match I can watch from childhood or teen years today and not feel the need to fast forward when watching.

    Obviously the match wouldn’t be as good as they were both 12 years younger and active wrestlers but at least I’ve seen these two have a good match before. I’m still waiting for a very good Roman Reigns singles match. Also, Rock vs. Brock is the biggest money match WWE can do so I’ll take the spectacle with potential to be memorable over the one that’s based around hoping Reigns is the next guy and nothing more than wishful thinking.

    The Rock

    Tom:

    I still think The Rock has another special match in him – he’s certainly not the guy I most want to see fight Brock, but I’d be interested. Meanwhile, I think Roman Reigns is a good two or three years away from being even CLOSE to capable of having a match with Lesnar that’s anything more than the snoozefests Brock had with Triple H.
