Unpopular Wrestling Opinions XIII

Recommended Posts

 

I fail to see how that means he can't pass it on.

It's not a wrestling nickname.

It's a earned strongman title.

 

The same way Kurt Angle can't give "Olympic Gold Medalist" to someone else

 

True, damn true.

Or Vince could pass on the wrestling nickname of WWE Chairman of The Board to someone in NXT.

Not saying I turned on him or anything, but The Fiend character definitely jumped the shark.

It's still a great character, but I feel like a lot more could have been done with The Fiend character at this point. I feel like him having the Universal title is unnecessary. That's one of my biggest issues. I also hate his entrance now. Too much lighting and shit goes into now and it's no longer eerie or creepy.

The last promo with the reptilians and shit was bizarre. Kinda got turned off when Rollins couldn't damage him at all. Its like having another Brock minus this one is acutally around.

I dont think him having the belt bothers me. But I can see the crowd turning on him because of the the stupid red light and his matches continue to be a bore. Also, the belt is dumb. Having the double mask on his face and around his waist doesnt look good at all IMO. But Ill call it now...

 

So all in all, I think theyre doing enough with The Fiend to the point where its TOO much. Like the character feels a little bit too commercialized. Id dial it back a little. But they see dollar signs.

Oh that red light! I have messed up eyes so after a minute or two i legitimately can't watch the match.

I'm still on The Fiend bandwagon. Belt sucks. The red lighting sucks. But I still dig the character and I think with the right opponent (like Daniel Bryan), you can work an interesting match.

I'm out of the loop, what's happened with the Fiend since HiaC that this is in Unpopular Opinions? Did they keep making him cartoonishly overpowered and people are turning on him?

Red lighting that you saw at HIAC is still a thing during his matches and

Dont even think he'll walk out with it, just shown for a merch plug

 

 

Honestly his best match under this gimmick was at Crown Jewel and at Summerslam of course. HIAC too aside from that bs finish

No way. The best Fiend match is undoubtedly the Bryan one. The gimmicky, poorly crafted Rollins ones are right at the bottom.

 

Re: HIAC. It was bad because it was repetitive, long, had banal Wyatt offense, and took a ridiculous, cartoonish turn that was super phony and anti-climatic. Its easily one of the worst booked matches this year.

Can agree, haven't watched a non-NXT show under the company banner since then, that match just burned me out in the worst way.

He's walked out with that belt in house shows and dark matches

Ew

 

 

And the Bryan/Fiend match was alright. Might watch it again before their next matchup to see if my mind changes
