Welcome to another edition of eWrestlingNews Quarantine House, asking you who you would choose to be stuck inside a house with for the length of the coronavirus pandemic.
Each round of these will be themed in some fashion and you’ll have to pick four people to ride out COVID-19 with in this fantasy scenario. Choose wisely, as you’re going to see a lot of these people and can’t get away from them for at least a month, if not longer!
Keep in mind that these are supposed to be fun, silly little things to pass the time. It’s not an in-depth analysis of wrestling history or something worth getting upset at each other over. However, you’re more than welcome to go in detail about why you chose the four people you picked and what situations you could see yourselves getting into. Have fun with it!
This edition revolves around the superstars who have become King of the Ring. You’re limited to pick from only those who wore the crown, dating back from 1985 until the most recent in King Corbin. There have been over 20 winners of the tournament itself, as well as a few people who were dubbed king by beating the current KOTR.
You have to pick 4 people from this list and only this list:
- Don Muraco
- Harley Race
- Hacksaw Jim Duggan
- Randy Savage
- Ted DiBiase
- Tito Santana
- Bret Hart (x2)
- Owen Hart
- Stone Cold Steve Austin
- Hunter Hearst Helmsley
- Ken Shamrock
- Billy Gunn
- Kurt Angle
- Brock Lesnar
- Booker T
- William Regal
- Bad News Barrett
- Baron Corbin
Who would be fun to hang out with? Would you pick their brains or just chill? For that matter, who do you think would be the four worst options to be quarantined with?
My Picks (off the top of my head):
- Owen Hart – I’ve mentioned Owen before as a guy who could have a lot of fun, play some pranks and keep the morale up. If not him, Billy Gunn in that spot for a similar reason.
- Randy Savage – He’s just awesome.
- Edge – I’ve put him on my list before as an all-around awesome person who I think would be kind of the dad of the house and keep things in check, but also have a good sense of humor.
- William Regal – My “sit and watch wrestling and pick his brain about it” pick for this round.
As far as terrible options go, I’m not entirely sure there’s a foursome that could be absolutely awful to be with. Sure, Brock Lesnar is probably not the most fun guy to be around, nor would Harley Race have anything much in common to talk about, but most of these guys seem like normal people For the sake of picking two others….I don’t know…Don Muraco and Mabel?
I’m sure if I really sat down and thought about it, I’d come up with hundreds of different people, for various different reasons.
But what about you? Who comes to your mind? What reasons do you have for picking them?
This whole quarantine series is entirely about giving you guys something to chat about and debate in the comments, so the more discussion we have going, the better. Toss out your thoughts below and if you have any suggestions for themes to add to my list of 20 or so at the moment, send them my way, too!
