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:
Which Kevin Owens match will be better?
John Cena – 84%, Samoa Joe – 16%
More exciting Steve Austin podcast guest?
Undertaker – 91%, Hulk Hogan – 9%
Which tournament will be better?
Chikara King of Trios – 51%, PWG DDT4 – 49%
Better form of comedy?
Stand up – 70%, Improv – 30%
More likely to win his title shot at Elimination Chamber: Dean Ambrose or Kevin Owens?
Which upset is more likely?
I doubt either one will win but I actually think they’d be more likely to put Cena’s belt on Owens than the world title on Ambrose. Not saying that’s what needs to happen because Cena is doing wonders with the US Championship but I wouldn’t be able to do anything but love it if it did. They treat Ambrose so strange. The audience loves him when he is in the spotlight but WWE never really commits to him. At least Rollins doesn’t need to lose the strap yet.
This is more of an instinctual answer for me. I can easily visualize Kevin Owens defeating John Cena and holding both the NXT and United States championships in his hands. I can not picture Dean Ambrose being the WWE World Champion. I just can’t form the mental image.
The John Cena Challenge and recent appearances and call-ups of NXT stars has me honestly believing there’s a NXT “invasion” story coming sooner or later. WWE likes to set up a big yearly Summer storyline around this time. Maybe it’s Owens leading an NXT invasion vs. John Cena.
Neither option seems especially likely, as WWE seems more committed than ever to keeping to long-term plans for their world champion. It just does not seem possible that Ambrose factors in to those plans in any way. With that being said, Kevin Owens is clearly going to be the NXT Champion until at least the next live special, and I’m not sure winning the US Championship helps him in any way because he’ll probably have to lose it someone sooner rather than later. Thus, I predict neither match sees a title change on Sunday!
Oh, I have to pick one? I’ll go with Ambrose, as there is always a chance he wins the title and drops it back to Rollins within a week or two on Raw.
DISCLAIMER: APPARENTLY KEVIN OWENS MATCH VS. JOHN CENA ISN’T A TITLE MATCH. WHOOPS.
