    I thought Dory was pretty boring in my limited viewing of him, while Nigel has looked great in my limited viewing of him.

    Yeah I don't particularly enjoy Dory's matches that I've seen of his. Nigel is a great talent who unfortunately didn't have the peak that he could have had due to injury.

    Dory deserves his rep as one of the legends of the NWA-era/70s, but at the same time there's very good and very obvious reasons why he's not talked about the same way his brother is.

    Rewatching some of the Nigel matches that have been thrown up around here recently was a stark reminder just how great he was. Definitely a top tier guy. Went with him and didn't have to think about it too long.

    Re: WCBNAINWOATT Round 1: Nigel McGuinness vs Dory Funk Jr.

    Dory definitely is a required taste. He can be dull because he is very unexpressive unlike Terry, he can sit in holds for long periods of time (which is usually 20 minutes out of the usual 60 NWA champions used to have). But I like his best matches a ton. There are a few times where he fires up and it's actually so amazing.

    Nigel is easier to get into though. His feud with Bryan is the obvious thing to look at when it comes to Nigel. He also has one of the best Kurt Angle matches post 2003 which isn't saying a lot but it was a legit great match.
