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, @JoeyOnEarth 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:
Who is your favorite member of The New Day?
Big E – 64%, Xavier Woods – 20% Kofi Kingston – 16%
More entertaining McMahon kid?
Shane – 58%, Stephanie – 42%
Summer Rae – 52%, Lana – 48%
Better silly slasher series?
Scream – 84%, I Know What You Did Last Summer – 16%
Which 2016 super show are you more excited about: Wrestlemania or Wrestle Kingdom?
This is obviously early in the game to forecast a Wrestlemania card but I find myself disappointed with the variables hitting Wrestlemania season. Seth Rollins is out, Randy Orton is likely out and The Rock is rumored to be unable to compete. The foreshadowing of Triple H vs. Roman Reigns as a top two main event is quite disappointing for me. I can’t watch NJPW shows often because the weaker cards annoy me with their structure of shows but Wrestle Kingdom looks incredible. Top three things I’m looking forward to:
1. Nakamura vs. Styles
2. Okada vs. Tanahashi
3. Cheeseburger’s debut. Top that, Wrestlemania.
I try to stay up to date with NJPW even if I can’t always catch all of their shows. Wrestle Kingdom is looking like a mighty fine show that I will definitely be tuning into… unlike Tom, the puro expert, who will for sure be asleep. Nothing about the way WWE is booking things right now gives me high hopes for Wrestlemania. Things could always change but I’m just not sure that company has any surprises I would be into left in it without a huge shake-up occurring.
Am I the Internet’s number one “puroresu” fan? Yes, obviously. Will I stay up to watch Wrestle Kingdom? Again, obviously, and anyone who says I’ve fallen asleep during previous broadcasts is a liar. However, as much as I love the Japanese “strong style”, I’m still going to have to go for Wrestlemania.
As many setbacks as there have been in terms of injuries and other issues, I’m still excited to see what Titan Sports Inc. does with their biggest show of the year. They’ve managed to somehow pull it off the past two times, so I want to see if they can make it three years running. Also, it’ll be the first Kevin Owens Wrestlemania and I’ll be fascinated to see what role he has – a match with Sami Zayn would be incredible and seems like the obvious choice, assuming both are healthy. Regardless though, I think the stakes are much higher at ‘Mania than they are for Wrestle Kingdom – even if it’s a trainwreck, that’ll make for more interesting viewing than just another good NJPW show.
