Unpopular Indy/Puro/Lucha/Misc Opinions

Recommended Posts

I don't like Jumbo Tsuruta, even though he's a god to many puro purists. Never saw any match of his that I found appealing. I actually avoid watching matches he's in, even if it's against someone I really like like Tenryu or Race.

WOW!! THAT'S VERY UNPOPULAR MAN!

Jumbo is like the best to me! I mean his Psicology,Charisma, are wonderful!(theme song too!)

I respect your opinion though. Don't you like the matches against Misawa/Kobashi?

I've seen some of them, yeah. Also I watched matches against guys like Hansen and Tenryu before I fully started avoiding him. I don't know, maybe it's just always found that his opponent was always the more compelling personality than him. In Japanese wrestling, where seemingly everyone knows how to put together a decent to great match, how compelled I feel to the guy's personality oddly starts to count more than in American wrestling for example, where if a guy can't even be carried to a good match, I don't like them regardless of personality. I obviously respect him as a legend and know of his importance to Puro in general, but I just can't enjoy his matches. His theme was ace though.

Current Chris Hero is 3/10 of the Chris we were used to...

 

The same goes for Samoa Joe

 

I think TNA really de-moralized Joe over the years. He's spoken positively about them and they're the reason he could buy his house and everything, but I don't think he's there in the ring anymore. He rarely does anything worth talking about anymore. I can't blame him though, he should be a huge star IMO and they've messed him up time and time again.

 

 

I think it's the same for Hero as well to an extent. Getting to the top level in your profession and being released must suck. Having that happen in your mid-late 30's where it's unlikely that opportunity will come again must suck more. He's a name on the indies and he knows it. He can put asses in seats just because he's Chris Hero. I think he can still bring it when he wants to though. His match with JT Dunn at Beyond Wrestling last Summer was great.

On that note, I like Jumbo better than Misawa

My favorite(of all time) is TOSHIAKI KAWADA

 

 

Mine too.

NWA Title is a joke they put the belt on a WWE reject thats trying to be a poorman's Macho Man. Since 07 after they split with TNA Pearce, Cabana, Blue Demon Jr. Brent Albright and Kojima are some the guys have won the title. NWA did nothing to take advantaged of the Cabana/Pearce feud over the NWA title that both Cabana and Pearce made a documentary about it.

I think that's actually a pretty popular opinion. I will never get over how NWA squeeze an involvement on NJPW cards with WWE rejects and the indies' third or fourth tier.

While I actually can tolerate them individually...ROH should have never given the Briscoes singe title runs. Especially not with the World Championship.

I hate Elgin. Probably one of my three most despised workers.

 

Regarding ROH: Yeah, they're pretty lame now. I enjoy the PPVs though, good stuff there. Weeklies though... nah, thanks.

I've lost interest in The Young Bucks, I won't deny they have talent and they are probably nice guys. I just don't find them enjoyable anymore.

I honestly feel like saying you like Michael Elgin would be a unpopular opinion. I respect him for putting in as much as he does but I don't feel he's the level of wrestle he's booked as. To me he's the stereotypical big guy in the midcard scramble/6 man tag match. Power moves, extended stalling vertical suplex, a high risk move that a guy his size shouldn't do, rinse and repeat. One match and you've seen pretty much everything he has to offer.

I feel like this will be at least a little unpopular, considering how people feel about his promo ability, but I think Roderick Strong will be a great PWG Champion

I don't get anything at all about this

 

 

He is basically saying that the female announcer from Evolve is tougher then Devin Taylor cause she took this bump. All i say said way to shit on Devin for no reason.
