    WALTER

    Seems apt to mention this guy today after we was voted WC's Wrestler of the Year in 2018. He was fantastic too in 2017 and was my WOTY then as well. With him being signed to WWE now there will be more eyes on him next year and his unique deal means he'll still be wrestling in the majority of the same indies as he is now.

    However, the massive road block this guy has is that almost everything of his 2015 and 2016 was in Germany and is behind a paywall so it's going to be tough for people to look into this guy. I was planning to cancel my wXwNOW account after that company shit the bed the last few months, but I might have to hang on to it for a while.

    Re: WALTER

    He’s in my considerations obviously, but his placement depends on his 2015 and 2016.

I can honestly say that I have never had anything I would call a bad blowjob, that wasn't a great experience but up until I started gushing blood I was having a great time!

    Re: WALTER

    He deserves it, but no clue at all where I'll rank him. 2019 could be as big of year as 2015.

    Re: WALTER

    The guy's been good since 2010 atleast (go watch the tourney finals with Hero), so there are probably stuff in those years that are good. However someone else not me has to go through the wXw archives and rummage around, but I have no interest in that.
    Talk about the best matches of the year here:

    WWE | AEW | New Japan | Other

    Re: WALTER

    Just watched both WALTER vs Keith Lee (EVOLVE 96) and vs Riddle (EVOLVE 97) back to back - both were pretty great matches that were not only fucking stiff, but pretty smartly worked and totally played to his opponent's strengths. The Lee match was especially good and easily my favourite match from Keith, and I think WALTER gets credit for helping lead it. Riddle goes for the handshake and "respect" pop guff after their match and thank god WALTER kicks him the fucking mouth and heels his way into my heart.

    He could be my working #1 right now.

    Re: WALTER

    Walter? Pffft. Get off this man's jock. He isn't fit to lace Kenny Omega's boots.



























    No I'm kidding. I gave him the vote for wrestler of the year. I have a lot of catch up to do on his 2015-2017 but there is very little doubt he will make it into my top 10, and could realistically finish number 1.

    I can't say I have any lasting memories of that Keith Lee match but I thought his various matches with Riddle were really great and filled the void in Riddle's indie career after his first big rival Hero left for WWE.

    Re: WALTER

    Pretty much worked my way through 2015 wXw and I have to say Walter doesn't leave much of a lasting impression. He's still good and there's a couple of really great matches, but it's like watching a lesser version of the exact same wrestler today and he at no point gives off best in the world vibes. It's hurt his #1 candidacy in my eyes to watch his earlier stuff and see the likes of Ilja and Zack be better than him.

    Re: WALTER

    Just watched

    WALTER vs Darby Allin, EVOLVE 106

    Fucking hell, this is my 2018 MOTY. Incredible match between two WOTY contenders. It struck me during this that WALTER is indy-level Brock Lesnar, and he is superb at that. He has the aura of being unbeatable to an unfair extent. His beatdown on Darby was so violent. WALTER getting his hand worked over is a story he does often, and this was the best one yet as Darby was actively going for it as a strategy rather than capitalizing on a mistake (making him look smart rather than lucky) and going for it with gusto. WALTER's chink-in-armor selling was fantastic, that first chop he throws after seems to hurt him as much as Allin, and him having to grab a rope break from an armbar is a real "holy shit, Allin may do this" moment. Didn't know the result going in, lost my shit for the finish.

    Excellent match. I can't see having WALTER lower than #3, even with periods of not doing much. I think I am likely to vote guys who have periods of being spectacular over guys who are consistently 'good' or 'decent' over 5 years.

    Re: WALTER

    Yes Steve! I was waiting for you to see this match after seeing your fandom of Darby grow. On paper you know it has the chance to be truly great because the roles should compliment each other well, and then the bell rings and it's even better than you imagined.
