    This Or That (10/29/2015)

    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 the last edition‘s results:

    Who would you rather see Undertaker wrestle at Wrestlemania 32?

    Sting – 53%, John Cena – 47%

    More promising NXT talent?

    Chad Gable – 61%, Apollo Crews – 39%

    Halloween?

    Yay – 72%, Nay – 38%

    Who will leave Survivor Series as WWE World Champion: Seth Rollins or Roman Reigns?

    Sheamus is not an acceptable answer.

    Raw_Reigns_Rollins-e1445936656540

    Joey:

    This question comes down to if you believe Dean Ambrose will turn heel on Roman Reigns. That’s the only thing that can prevent the title change. I just don’t see that happening. I don’t think Ambrose is valued enough to be put in such a position of a big match. He’s more so in the Ziggler territory. This is the show I see Reigns getting his title win. It’s a softer crowd, the story is fitting, Rollins is running out of challengers. Just seems like the timing has lined up too perfectly for it to not happen here.

    Roman Reigns

    Tim:

    Now might be the best time to do it when it comes to the story but I can see them waiting to make Reigns the champion on a bigger stage. At least one of the former Shield members needs to make a big change so Dean Ambrose turning heel and elongating Reigns’ chase for the title seems likely to me. At the moment this whole thing comes off unnatural and forced to me but here we are. Here’s to hoping they throw in some unexpected challenger for Rollins to wrestle while Ambrose and Reigns feud over who is the coolest guy in high school.

    Seth Rollins 

    Tom:

    Nice to see that we’ve all acknowledged the biggest issue as being how stale Ambrose is right now. I really, REALLY can’t stand how lame Dirty Dean is as the “unstable” face who loves cold beer and hey, where the women at?!? I’m not sure if he’ll be any more effective as a heel, but jeez, at least I’ll be supposed to hate him then.

    Also, Rollins is only just coming off a Kane feud so it’d be a real shame for his run to end now. Give the boy a couple more months so he can get that behind him and lose the title with a little dignity.

    WWE Hell in a Cell 2015 Preview and Predictions

    Also known as No Mercy 2002.

    Giving their thoughts and predictions on what to expect from the PPV are members of the site @JoeyOnEarth, @TimWelcomed and @TomBlargh.

    Cesaro, Neville and Dolph Ziggler vs. Sheamus, King Barrett and Rusev on the pre-show

    Joey:

    I’ll be honest and admit I tuned out when these six had their match together on Raw this week so at least it will be kinda new to me. I still can’t be too excited about it. They basically have rotating singles matches every week. I’m sure it will be fun on the pre-show. Glad to see Neville and Cesaro doing something.

    Interest Level: 6/10
    Prediction: Cesaro, Neville and the other guy win.

    Tim:

    I’m highly displeased with the product lately. It’s been hard to watch but I DO watch it because I’m a real fan. This is a match I’ve already seen and I’m good on not seeing it again. There are a million better things Cesaro, Neville, and Rusev could be doing.

    Interest Level: 3/10
    Prediction: Sheamus, King Barrett, and Rusev win.

    Tom:

    This is exactly the same match from Raw. Why is this here?

    Interest Level: 4/10
    Prediction: What’s going on?

    Before we start, here’s last week‘s results:

    Worst opponent choice for a star wrestler’s match?

    Big Show facing Brock Lesnar at MSG – 79%, Kane facing Seth Rollins at HIAC – 21%

    Who would you rather see return to WWE for one more Wrestlemania match?

    Kurt Angle – 84%, Jeff Hardy – 16%

    Which NXT champion will lose their title first?

    Bayley – 58%, Finn Balor – 42%

    Which FOX sitcom are you looking forward to the return of?

    Brooklyn Nine Nine – 56%, Last Man On Earth – 44%

    Who would you rather see Undertaker wrestle at Wrestlemania 32: John Cena or Sting?

    ‘Taker in Texas.

    Screen Shot 2015-10-10 at 21.13.56

    Tim:

    I’m going to give you some inside baseball real fast. Joey is underneath me with his answer. He put his answer in before I did. I want to reference something he said as I had planned on saying the same thing so here’s what we are going to do. You’re going to go read his answer. When you are done you can scroll up a little bit or move your eyes up a little bit and read mine. Once this happens you will go “oh, I know what he’s talking about because I read Joey’s beforehand.” Go do that now. This is super necessary and important. It will not be a waste of time.

    Are you back? Okay, cool. Let’s do this.

    There’s a lot of things at play in this one for me. I’d love to see Sting get a proper retirement match at a WrestleMania if he and WWE think he could wrestle again. Like Joey said in his answer to this question, my dream match was always Sting vs Shawn Michaels growing up. I always saw the Sting vs Undertaker dream match as people going “these two characters are dark they should fight.” I’m not sure I ever even thought about that match as a kid. There was nothing there to ever make me interested in that. Sting and HBK’s styles would’ve been interesting to watch in a match.

    NOW though… well, there’s nothing really interesting for Sting to do besides a spectacle-laden build-up and showdown with The Undertaker. It would have to be a retirement match at this point in his career but they wouldn’t do a double-retirement as it would take away from the impact of The Undertaker retiring (which I’m almost positive is happening… PLEASE?). If we get Cena vs Undertaker we could possibly get one final Undertaker match that is watchable. I guess that’s the answer but I’m so tired of Cena’s character that I can’t stand him and his matches. Even if they’re good he is insufferable but whatever. NO. Fuck this. Give me Sting vs Undertaker and don’t make me see either guy ever again afterwards.

    Here’s my pitch. You reintroduce Brad Maddox. Sting doesn’t know if he should ever wrestle again. Brad Maddox had a vision while in that cave that he should be Sting’s protégé. He talks Sting into wrestling again and calling out The Undertaker because he saw that moment in the vision. Sting finds his smile and thanks Maddox for helping him get back into the game. Sting takes Maddox under his wing during the build up to the match.

    Meanwhile, you do what seems to be a one-off comedy skit with Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose backstage. The Undertaker had just returned to accept Sting’s challenge. Ambrose is daring people to pick up the urn that is just chilling backstage and no one will. Of course, Reigns does because HE’S NOT SCARED. When he picks it up to laugh at everyone for being PANSIES he immediately vomits everywhere which causes him to drop the urn. Over the next few weeks Roman starts getting really strange. He still feels sick all of the time. He only craves raw meat and buys his first motorcycle. Lights flicker whenever he walks in a room sometimes and it’s really starting to freak him out.

    The big match happens. Towards the end Sting and Undertaker are both out. The ref gets to the nine count. LIGHTS GO OUT. You hear screams. Lights flash back on. A baseball bat and the urn are sitting in the spots where Sting and The Undertaker were laying. LIGHTS GO OUT AGAIN. LIGHTING HITS THE RAMP. Lights back on! By the urn stands The New Undertaker Roman Reigns. By the bat stands The New Sting, Brad Maddox. The match continues. Whoever wins it doesn’t matter because of the 5 star classic they put on. The crowd is yelling and losing their shit. Grown men are ripping off their shirts and throwing money at the ring. Kids are being born. The Pope releases a statement the next day about the greatest match that ever was. WrestleMania 32 makes history.

    Sting

    Joey:

    I’ve never been one of the people super into seeing Undertaker vs. Sting as a dream match. My personal Sting WWE dream match was always vs. Shawn Michaels. Sting/Taker would be cool but more so if it were Sting’s first WWE appearance. I’d rather see Undertaker face John Cena at a Wrestlemania because I desperately want to see it happen once before ‘Taker retires. Cena also gives a significantly better chance at Undertaker having a great match in what I personally think will be his retirement bout.

    John Cena

    Tom:

    The Brock Summerslam match was somewhat of a return to form for ‘Taker, but I still think they’ve kind of missed the boat as far as doing something really special between him and John Cena.

    Cena’s been on an absolute tear this year, having innovative, fast-paced matches with a great bunch of younger lads, so for him to slow it down to have an Undertaker match would be kind of a bummer. Let Sting have his ‘Taker match, for fuck’s sake. Spend all the time on the intros and then use spectacular special effects to make it look like they’re firing lightning bolts and crows at one another.

    Summerslam 2015 Preview and Predictions

    More tag matches than a New Japan B show.

    Giving their thoughts and predictions on what to expect from the PPV are members of the site @JoeySplashwater, @TimWelcomed and @TomBlargh.

    wwe-summerslam-2015

    The Prime Time Players vs. New Day vs. Lucha Dragons vs. Los Matadores for the WWE Tag Team Championship

    Joey:

    We see this kind of match every Wrestlemania and it’s always a fun time. It should be improved this time with New Day being so over and Lucha Dragons likely being a fan favorite. Definitely look for New Day to get the titles back.

    Interest Level: 7/10
    Prediction: New Day wins.

    Tim:

    It’ll be nice to watch The Lucha Dragons do their thing. The New Day are usually a good time. I’m not too interested in this one but it should have some good spots.

    Interest Level: 5/10
    Prediction: The New Day wins. 

    Tom:

    I feel like there’s been so much attention taken off the tag division lately that it’s hard to be too interested in this, even though it’s likely to be pretty good! Lucha Dragons seem to have been relegated to Main Event type shows with Los Matadores, while PTP have mostly been on commentary duties. Thankfully, The New Day has been consistently great so hopefully they get the belts back.

    Interest Level: 6/10
    Prediction: The New Day wins.

    Sexy Wrestler of The Week

    Hold on tight because we’re fixing to name The Sexy Wrestler of The Week! Can you believe it? It seems like only yesterday we were not naming The Sexy Wrestler of The Week and yet here we are. We are absolutely naming The Sexy Wrestler of The Week today. Wow!

    It’s super hot outside but there’s definitely something hotter in our future. It’s that time of the week again! The Sexy Wrestler of The Week will be named! I’ve counted your votes and it was a thrill ride. Every single one of them brought an extreme joy to my heart.

    You would have to be dead to not agree with the winner this week. This could the first win in another streak for this man! I’m hinting at the winner here you dipshit.

    Oh, also… he played Blanche’s boyfriend in an episode of Golden Girls. It was probably one of the greatest wrestling/comedy crossovers ever but many people don’t remember it. I dug up a screenshot for you, the lovely readers.

    TakerGoldenGirls

    The Undertaker is The Sexy Wrestler of The Week! Do you remember his Wrestlemania streak? That was quite the accomplishment but NOTHING compares to being voted the sexiest wrestler. I’m sure The Dead Man is riding his hog down an empty road right now while reflection on what brought him to this huge moment.

    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?

    brock-taker

    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.

    Before we start, here’s last week‘s results:

    Kevin Owens – 68%, Dean Ambrose – 32%

    Which is more likely at Wrestlemania 32: Steve Austin vs. Brock Lesnar or Undertaker vs. Sting?

    Dream matches.

    matchz

    Tim:

    There was a lot of convincing stuff going on with the Austin/Lesnar thing. Austin looked like he was in good shape and he went really hard into character. They switched to kayfabe (yeah, I said it) so well. Then there were actual WWE roster members tweeting about wanting that match which seems suspicious to me. I don’t know if they’d tease something that big if there wasn’t at least a good chance that it would happen. It seemed like Austin was definitely prepared for that interaction. I would love to see this even though there are a good five to six wrestlers I’d rather see these two guys wrestle instead.

    Sting’s first and maybe final match in WWE was pretty sad in retrospect despite the ridiculous, nonsensical, in-the-moment nostalgia-riddled mayhem it brought us. I know he’s said he would come back for an Undertaker match. Neither of them can go like they once could. It would probably be a bad match unless you fill it full of theatrics and, well… WWE would actually have to figure out how to portray the Sting character. It would probably be Undertaker’s retirement match. They’d almost for sure put him over Sting even though it would most likely be Sting’s retirement match too. No way they’d focus on a double-retirement with an ex-WCW guy like Sting properly. I really don’t think this will happen even though I think the build-up COULD and SHOULD be really neat. I wouldn’t mind it.

    Match ends. Lights go out and come back on and the urn and a baseball bat sit in the ring. Crows are flying haphazardly around the audience. The monks come down and sing a song a capella (Rolling In The Deep?) while Fred Durst (with Lex Luger in a side cart) ride a motorcycle around ringside waving the American flag.

    Steve Austin vs Brock Lesnar

    Joey:

    There’s no way Steve Austin would have went as deep into character mode as he did during his podcast interview with Paul Heyman if there wasn’t some thought being given to returning at Wrestlemania. I think that means there’s a chance of it happening at least. On the other side, I think Wrestlemania 32 will be Undertaker’s last match ever and I can’t see any situation where Sting is his final opponent.

    Steve Austin vs. Brock Lesnar

    Tom:

    Austin definitely looked in better shape on his most recent Network podcast with Heyman, and more in “Stone Cold mode”, as opposed to “boisterous dad mode”. The promo he cut on old Paul E. at the end was fairly sensational stuff, so even though I really can’t imagine the match being much of anything, I think the build-up to it would be great fun and worth watching. However, Austin also seems like a guy that’s very conscious of his limitations and wellbeing, which makes it hard to imagine he’d be willing to risk both his legacy and his health with a match with Brock.

    Undertaker / Sting seems… I mean, if Sting’s going to do another WWE match, that’d be the one. Yeah, Sting might not be able to give ‘Taker a great final match, but I don’t think anyone could at this stage. At the very least, The Steveman could guarantee Undertaker something safe and easy, as he proved with that surprisingly fun bout he had with Hogan a few years back. Let the two old man have their 10 minute entrances and posturing and then send them off home to count their money before someone breaks a hip, for fuck’s sake.

    More likely to wrestle a match at Wrestlemania 31?

    Hulk Hogan – 67%, Ronda Rousey – 33%

    More likely to become WWE champion again?

    Sheamus – 83%, The Miz – 17%

    Better anti-American wrestler?

    Better game?

    Which Kevin Owens match will be better: Samoa Joe or John Cena?

    Both will be great but which do you think will turn out the better overall match.

    joe-cena

    Tim:

    The fact that both of these matches are happening is just wild to me. I’m so excited for both of them. Samoa Joe is the perfect challenger for Owens in NXT right now because it doesn’t seem like anyone else can bring him down. The first meeting between Owens and Joe in NXT was impactful just as it was with Owens meeting Cena for the first time on Raw.

    Cena vs Owens has a lot going for it though. It’s Owens first main roster match and it’s on a WWE PPV against the biggest name in the company. When Cena has an opponent like Owens he always rises to the occasion and seems way more motivated. I always thought there wouldn’t be a better anti-Cena than CM Punk but the more I think about it the more I realize that the Kevin Owens character is the natural fit. I’d love a rivalry between these two to last for years.

    John Cena

    Joey:

    John Cena vs. former ROH/PWG wrestlers tends to be instant magic. CM Punk, Daniel Bryan, Cesaro, Luke Harper, Seth Rollins and a few others have had some of their best WWE matches vs. Cena because he knows how to adapt perfectly and the chemistry is always there.

    With someone as precise in storytelling as Kevin Owens is, he could have a chance at being one of Cena’s best opponents. I’m thinking it will be a special match we remember years from now.

    John Cena

    Tom:

    Good lord, what a question. The Owens / Cena PPV match is the most exciting PPV match for ages. It feels unreal that it’s happening but… well, so does Joe/Owens in NXT. I’m fascinated to see how Joe performs as an official WWE superstar but hearing the rumours about his contract being a limited deal kind of spoils things. He might have great matches, but it seems unlikely that he’ll ever be elevated past the NXT level.

    On the other hand, Owens / Cena could be something else entirely. The two seem like they could be a natural fit and Cena seems to relish the idea of having a new foe who can deliver on the mic and in the ring. I’m fascinated to not only see how their match plays out, but also what kind of signals it sends for Owens’ future on the main roster.

    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.

    Shawn Michaels

    Who are you more interested to see at Wrestlemania: Sting or The Undertaker?

    Who do you care about seeing more?

    The Dead Man and The Old Man

    Tim:

    I’m really not excited about either and I’m a life-long Sting fan. I was willing to look over his age and be excited for him to get his Wrestlemania moment and retire but WWE has done almost everything to suck the nostalgia out of seeing Sting. They give him horrible theme music and kind of act like they don’t really know how to present his character other than “silence, bat and face paint.” That being said, I really don’t give one shit about The Undertaker at this point. He lost his streak in a bad match to a part-time player just for the moment and now will wrestle someone who probably won’t even get a good match out of him. At least I have hope Triple H will do what he can to take Sting through a decent match.

    Joey:

    I’ve noticed something on social media. Long time wrestling fans who watched Sting in the 90’s seem to be underwhelmed at Sting’s highly anticipated WWE debut. Newer fans unfamiliar with him come off as more impressed. I’m more of the former. Sting just doesn’t feel special to me. Hulk Hogan appearing to sell breast cancer awareness t-shirts still feels like a bigger deal.

    There’s more curiosity in Undertaker. Last year was rough for the old man (or one of the old men in this case) but I want to see at least see how he rebounds from it. This could either be a legendary performance or Michael Jordan coming back to play for the Washington Wizards types of bad.

    Tom:

    My expectations for Steve “The Stingman” Borden and Mr. Michelle McCool are rock bottom, which I’m sure will help. Undertaker looked absolutely dreadful in every way last year, and I doubt another year away is going to help matters much. WWE’s presentation of Sting is pretty uninspiring. It’s not completely awful, but there’s just little things they could be doing to try and maintain his mystique a little more that they’re not bothering with. His stupid old man hair and his dumb jackets and his stupid new theme… they’re all little things, but there’s enough of them to really kill my disinterest.

    I think all odds are on the Stinger being thoroughly mediocre at ‘Mania, whereas, like Joey said, ‘Taker seems more likely to be something amazing or something absolutely dreadful. Can’t wait to find out! At least he’s in there with Bray Wyatt, who’s only ever had terrific feuds and PPV matches. OH WAIT.
