    Re: Timothy Thatcher Signs with WWE

    Don't mind it honestly. On one hand it sucks, even last year Thatcher/Hideki & Thatcher/Ishikawa were top 10 caliber matches last year and we will miss those kinds of matches but his sporadic disappearances I think showed where his head was at. He has turned them down many a times but let's face it, WXW is an even bigger sinking ship than NXT UK and like Ed said the Japan run never appealed to him for whatever reason. What has he got to lose at this point?

    That said, even if he won the NXT Title proper I would be surprised but he's a Regal pet project keep in mind so I do think his upside is higher than Gulak and Lorcan.

    For me it isn't really his in-ring ability that stands out but he has this menacing/psycho factor, and it's a role I think he plays really well. I think he's someone who's really capable of great character work.

    Ohno has said that it's only just guest appearance but it's worth a post in here anyway. Hideki in WWE would be an even odder match than Thatcher and WWE.

    The most boring wrestler in the world can sign himself away with no complaints from me, stick him in NXT UK, he can be the Japanese branch of Gallus

    Meltzer's reporting that Thatcher had been trying to get into Japan for years but no-one was interested

    I guess you would say that about Thatcher as well since he himself would tell you he wrestles the same as Hideki & Yuki Ishikawa.

    He's taken their style and made it entertaining :P

    Ohno's saying he's just a guest, but maybe it's a little like the Sekimoto thing where he's being feeled out for future NXT Japan type things.

    So I looked at the Best Workers of 2010s list for Thatcher recommendations but the list was massive. What would folk say are his most defining/best matches?

    Re: Timothy Thatcher Signs with WWE

    The WALTER Progress match. His match against ZSJ when he lost the Evolve title. His first match against Yuki Ishikawa is definitely his best, imo. And the Hero PWG BOLA 15 match. Those are ones I'd say are essential.
