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!
Before we start, here’s last week‘s results:
Who will be WWE Champion by the end of Elimination Chamber?
Randy Orton – 56%, Anyone else – 44% (You voted correctly)
Who gets the bigger return pop?
Hulk Hogan – 54%, Undertaker – 46% (You voted incorrectly)
Who appears on RAW first in 2014?
Sami Zayn – 72%, Evan Bourne – 28%
Cooler sports feat to accomplish?
Hit a Home Run in a MLB game – 63%, Slam dunk in a NBA game – 37%
More likely to main event Wrestlemania 30: Triple H vs. Daniel Bryan or Undertaker vs. Brock Lesnar?
We can all agree that Batista vs. Randy Orton does not currently seem like a viable option
Every time I have to think about the Wrestlemania card, my eye twitches. I honestly see Triple H going over Bryan here and I doubt they’ll let that end the show (and they sure as hell would be asking for a horrible ending if they let Orton vs Batista round it out) so I can see Wrestlemania 30 ending with The Undertaker’s streak being retained.
It’s probably for the best since they are sticking to their guns unless they decide to add a stipulation where if Bryan beats Triple H he can be in the title match with Orton and Batista, which is highly unlikely. To me the story was always about Bryan getting the belt and that would make him the “face of the company.” Triple H was just one person in the way and not the endgame. Not saying it is the endgame but it just seems like the natural time to pull the trigger on Daniel Bryan’s big title win. I can’t believe they are going to ignore something so organic. It’s just doesn’t sit right with me at all. Anyway, Lesnar and Undertaker will probably have a compelling-for-WWE-in-2014 build-up and an okay match.
Brock Lesnar vs. The Undertaker
All alone in the boat excited for Triple H vs. Daniel Bryan, I am! To be fair, I’m not necessarily excited but I think it’s the right main event at this point. As much as it sucks to say for those of us who miss the days of valued titles, I view Daniel Bryan beating Triple H to close Wrestlemania 30 as a bigger moment than if he were to beat Randy Orton for the Championship.
My main complaint from Elimination Chamber is that Kane has been doing the dirty work for Hunter and crew thus taking away a bit of the effect. WWE showed fans looking as apathetic as ever to end the show in a way to portray this story, unfortunately rightfully so. If going this route, why not have Triple H flat out come out and give the Pedigree shades of Summerslam?
All that aside, I understand the reputation and believe it but beating Bryan would be an absolute new low for Triple H. I refuse to believe they are that ridiculous with their mindsets in WWE. Bryan closing out Wrestlemania by slaying HHH is the main event that will and in my mind needs to happen.
Daniel Bryan vs. Triple H
The idea of Batista and Orton headlining Wrestlemania is just incredible. Like, I can’t even imagine how vicious it would get, so I’d be fascinated to see it end the show. However, if WWE has any sense whatsover, it doesn’t seem like they’ll go that way. As far as what would be more likely to main event… it’s tough to say.
It does seem like being ‘the face of the WWE’ has become more prestigious a prize than holding the title, so I could buy Bryan getting a win over Triple H and 80,000 people doing the yes chant to close out the show, but it seems more likely that they’ll go with the streak being retained to send people home happy. I can also imagine the argument being made for the streak to main event over the title because there is some precedent to it, whereas I think Triple H might be hesitant to place himself in the main event (regardless of how much he might want to).
Brock vs. Undertaker
