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:
Better 2015 match?
Nakamura vs. Ibushi at Wrestle Kingdom – 51%, Lesnar vs. Rollins vs. Cena at Royal Rumble – 49%
Better Royal Rumble crowd?
Philadelphia in 2015 – 65%, Pittsburgh in 2014 – 35%
Who booed wrestler did you feel worse for?
Rey Mysterio in 2014 – 61%, The New Day in 2015 – 39%
Who will win the Super Bowl?
Dan Marino – 52%, Seattle Seahawks – 34%, New England Patriots – 14%
Who will leave Wrestlemania 31 as champ: Roman Reigns or anyone else?
Reigns or the field (Brock Lesnar/Daniel Bryan/Seth Rollins). Who will leave as champ?
WWE is in such a self-made clusterfuck here. I don’t think they’re pulling back on Reigns even though they should so I see him beating Daniel Bryan at Fastlane. This will make things worse for Reigns. Do they turn him heel? Because at that point he might as well be. I don’t see Lesnar staying so he will be losing the belt at Wrestlemania.
The whole match will have a very odd atmosphere as Lesnar is leaving and Reigns is not accepted by as many people as they want. The only thing I think they can do to make Wrestlemania end on a somewhat better note is have Rollins cash-in. Preferably somewhere in the middle of the match where he thinks he can win and then they both get up making the last half a triple threat or something.
Will they do it and not end on Roman Reigns being supreme ruler of all things? I don’t know. I think they will most likely have their hand pushed to actually fix this whole mess by then.
Let’s go through an order of elimination – unfortunately I think Roman Reigns is defeating Daniel Bryan at Fast Lane so that eliminates him. I do not think there’s a chance Brock Lesnar leaves Wrestlemania as champ so he’s gone as well. I’m essentially choosing between Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins. I’ll side with Rollins here as Reigns will get booed out of the building at Wrestlemania and his cash in would be the perfect back-up plan.
Rollins cashing in at Wrestlemania would cement him as the smartest Money in the Bank briefcase holder. Reigns would beat Lesnar in Vince McMahon’s dream scenario and still look strong (lol) so I can see this being the middle ground for WWE.
Man… I really get the feeling that they’d hate to be seen as buckling to fan pressure SO they’re just gonna stay on track with Reigns. It’s going to be a VERY weird ending to ‘Mania but ending the show with Rollins cashing in to a huge face reacton probably wouldn’t do anyone any favours, even though I’d be much more interested seeing him as champion.
I dunno, man! If I had to guess how it all plays out, Reigns wins without shenanigans at ‘Mania, Rollins cashes in by Extreme Rules, Reigns ends up a heel by Summerslam and they mostly give up on old Roman by ‘Mania 32.
