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?
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.
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.
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.
