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 five 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!
First off, here’s last week’s results:
Better yearly PPV?
Royal Rumble – 65%, Wrestlemania – 35%
More exciting potential WM feud?
Undertaker vs. Brock Lesnar – 56%, Triple H vs. CM Punk – 44%
More likely to hold a TNA title by the end of 2014?
American Wolves – 88%, Sting – 12%
Better to visit?
Zoos – 65%, Aquariums – 35%
Lamer rumored Wrestlemania match: Daniel Bryan vs. Sheamus or Batista vs. Randy Orton?
Both matches seem likely with the rumored Wrestlemania plans starting last night. What match pisses you off more?
They are both awful matches to even have to think about but I am going to go with Daniel Bryan vs Sheamus. Daniel Bryan and Sheamus can have great matches. They had one of my favorite 2 Out Of 3 Falls matches at Extreme Rules 2012. It was even my favorite Sheamus match ever. However, Daniel Bryan is WAY too hot right now to be saddled wrestling someone like Sheamus on the biggest stage of them all. Not to mention that Sheamus as a character is always extremely annoying.
There are three things that could happen here.
1: Sheamus wins. Oh god… That is scary.
2: Daniel Bryan gets his revenge and beats Sheamus in 18 seconds or less. It would make the most sense with their history but would totally leave us without a decent Daniel Bryan match.
3: Daniel Bryan defeats Sheamus in a decent match that doesn’t get enough time because of all of the other “high-profile” matches.
Daniel Bryan vs Sheamus
Before giving my answer, Randy Orton vs. Batista is my nightmare. It consists of my two least favorite performers of the last era in terms of many facets I will explain in a piece closer to Wrestlemania. That being said, my answer has to be Daniel Bryan vs. Sheamus.
Bryan’s red hot buzz was sabotaged to make sure he stays in that 2nd tier position on the card with guys like Sheamus, Alberto Del Rio and The Big Show. The only problem with that was the fans have started to revolt and treat him as if he’s THE guy. You’d assume with the last 6 months that he’d have a title program or face someone like The Undertaker or John Cena. Nope. It’s Sheamus. Fucking Sheamus. Unless plans change the fans at live shows push their hands, what an absolute waste and slap in the face to wrestling fans.
Daniel Bryan vs. Sheamus
It’s a tough one to call – Orton / Batista is undoubtedly the match that I want to see less, but there’s something incredibly depressing about the idea of Bryan wrestling Sheamus at Wrestlemania for the third time in four years, even if the first two times barely count. I really loved their two out of three falls match at Extreme Rules 2012 but after the year Bryan’s had, is this the best they can manage for him?
Having said that, Batista vs. Orton main eventing a Wrestlemania in 2014 is a massive pile of shit, so I’m forced to pick that.
