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:
More annoying chant?
WHAT? – 64%, CM Punk – 36%
Bullet Club – 51%, NWO – 49%
CHIKARA – 81%, CZW – 19%
What should LeBron James do?
Go back to Cleveland– 81%, Stay in Miami – 19%
Last week’s This Or That broke a record for most votes collected in a week. Thank you and keep voting!
Better bad-ass tag team: The Road Warriors or The Steiner Brothers?
Which bad-ass tag team do you prefer?
The Road Warriors had a good look and bad-ass personas at the time but in-ring I didn’t care too much and still don’t. I love Steiner Brothers matches and will say they’re higher up in my imaginary “favorite tag-teams of all time” list. Scott Steiner was always a fun watch and how could you not like a wrestler named The Dog-Faced Gremlin?! That’s way better than “Hawk” or “Animal.”
The Steiner Brothers
The Steiner Brothers are my favorite ’90s tag team and I’m basically using this question to showcase my love for them. That’s what happens when you purchase a domain name, kids! The Steiners had everything I loved about wrestling. From brawling with intensity to flashy moves from the top rope, Rick and Scott gave us both the appeal of intense brawls and impressive wrestling bouts.
I enjoyed The Road Warriors/LOD enough but they never really connected with me probably due to the fact that I missed their prime and I don’t believe you can truly understand how good a wrestler was unless you live through it. I do vividly remember marking out when The Steiners beat the NWO for the tag team titles at Souled Out 1997. One of my favorite things about the WWE Network (when it actually works for me) is reliving old Steiners tag matches. Best tag team of all time!
I missed out on the peak years of Los Bros Steiner so I don’t really have an awful lot of affection for them, although watching young Scott in his early years and seeing if you can spot any Big Poppa Pumpisms is pretty good fun. Oh, and I enjoyed seeing the Steiners get hit with trays of snacks by Arn Anderson and Bobby Eaton dressed as concession sellers in the WCW Comic (RIP WCW Comic Book Reading Club, you were too much work and not consistently funny enough).
I wasn’t a huge Road Warriors/Legion of Doom guy either, but I did like the shoulder pads, facepaint and how creative they were with using their hairstyles to hide their bald patches.
