    David Starr

    Well he's the cream in my coffee, my favourite wrestler's favourite wrestler.....

    I'm a big fan of the guy, he feels like one of the bigger stars not signed to a top promotion and has the ability to work great as both a babyface and a heel. He was fantastic in wXw in 2017 with his story with Walter and being one of the top wrestlers in the promotion, and by all accounts there's gems in the 2016 World Tag League that I need to see. His barbed wire match with Janela this year was fantastic and my favourite version of that stipulation. I'm not looking at promos in this project, but he's one of the best anywhere on the mic, I just don't know how companies on TV aren't sliding into his DMs to bring him in. Given the nature of modern wrestling, Starr is going to end up being one of the most in demand indie acts in the world next year, particularly in England.

    Honestly Ed I'm not sure on David Starr either way. Alot of the work I've seen from him in Progress has been on the Comedy side, and I would like more of his skills in the Ring. You said he had a Match with Walter in 2017 and somehow didn't have to go the Hospital well that should be a Match I need to see right now.

    Re: David Starr

    He has about 10 matches with Walter in the last 2 years I think.

    He does dip into comedy way too much for my liking, that is what holds him back from being say a top 25 guy. That does give his serious matches a nice boost because you know a hot feud has killed his fun loving attitude and it's super easy to get into them, but you have to put up with lame putdowns and fan interactions. He's a poor Kevin Owens in that regard.

    Poor man's Kevin Steen feels about right, my first impressions of him were that he was the wrestling equal to painful STD.

    I enjoyed the WALTER match from the 16CG and another match I saw him have with Keith Lee - he seems to get cat and mouse type matches. Other than that I thought the WALTER match was 90% WALTER beating up a goof, and WALTER has carried plenty of goofs to good matches.

    The Janela match has my interest atleast, but what else do I need to watch to not hate this guy?

    He to me is like all 3 BSS guys rolled into one person.

    I feel like you said you weren't as into him this year at some point, Ed, but I guess you came back around at some point.

    There are times I really hate his performances and times where he steps up & has great matches & even then he's honestly one of my least favorite people on social media & half the time he comes across like he's lost the plot on wrestling in general whenever he says anything so I admit I might not give him enough respect & actively don't want to watch his matches in the first place. I loved that WALTER match a lot & am willing to have an open mind on him, but on the whole he's another one of those "Top 50???" guys to me at first glance.

    Probably a top 25 guy right now. No doubt number one worst social media of the late 2010’s.

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!

    I get what you mean by this, complete with the 'banter' progress matches that do nothing for me. He can afford to tone down his Trent side.

    I feel like you said you weren't as into him this year at some point, Ed, but I guess you came back around at some point.
    Yeah maybe the first third of the year I wasn't really feeling him, and in general his last year hasn't been as good as this year, but around the summertime he started bringing it back around plus catching up on the OTT stuff I hadn't seen all year. His tag team with Jordan Devlin is infinitely better than his tag team with Jack Sexsmith, his British title shot with Ishii was really good, his feud with Janela was a big deal in Beyond, thought his match with Quack was the MOTN from Spring Break, wasn't in wXw as much this year but had good stuff against Zack, Jurn, Ringkampf etc.

    He is wildly inconsistent to me, like he has one of my least favourite Matt Riddle matches ever, I don't care for the majority of stuff he does in Rev-Pro, so who knows he could stink his way out of my consideration next year.

    Steve, try and find Devlin and Starr Vs Low Ki and Walter from OTT or Massive Product Vs Ringkampf from tag league 2017.

    Re: David Starr

    I just got done watching Starr Vs Thatcher from wXw Back to the Roots 2019 and I'm starting to feel the hype that Starr's one of the best in the world right now. They do an arm focused match as Starr comes into the match with a preexisting injury which Tim exploits and it's just two great performances from both guys to get that story across. If they don't do the quick roll up finish when the match still felt like it had enough 5-10 minutes in it, then it's probably my MOTY so far.

    Coming off the back of watching him against Orange Cassidy where he plays a completely different role as a huge jerk heel dismissive of his opponent's abilities, I'm not sure there's too many wrestlers in the world that are equally as great at being the hero and the villain of matches quite like Starr. No-ones coming to mind when I think of his range. If I get more of this Starr this year and less of the comedy stuff which is insta-skip for me, he's going to leap up my list.
