    Re: Unpopular Wrestling Opinions

    A lot of very good points I've just read. End of the day, wherever Hogan was or is, (except modern day) Hogan is the biggest name in the company. Because he's Hulk Hogan and almost everyone knew who he was when he wrestled, even non wrestling fans. In fact having your name recognised by non wrestling fans is probably the biggest valid argument to settle who's the bigger star and someone said earlier too, Bret Hart was more recognised than Shawn Michaels. If I was to go into work with two names on a card, which do you think is a wrestler, I'm confident more would recognise Bret Hart. Bret was a megastar in wrestling when he left for wcw, if it was Shawn Michaels leaving for wcw in 96/97 his name doesn't mean squat as Bret does. And neither will ever be bigger than Hogan.

    Can anyone from the states with better knowledge than me confirm that Bret was so much more recognizable than Shawn to the general public? It's a very small sample size but the casual wrestling fans that I was exposed to would think that Shawn was a bigger name.

    From what I've seen, Shawn Michaels is a much bigger name in the states than anywhere else compared to Bret. Could be his second run with WWE helping him out, but I could also have a small sample size of casual fans here too.

    I prefer a quality tag team match over a quality singles match. I think there's more drama, it's more enthralling because there's four guys and more potential scenarios and it hits them feels good.

    I wouldn't call it unpopular but a bit on the wayside. I'm a huge fan of Taichi. Don't get me wrong, I don't want him to be pushed or anything but something about him makes me mark out.

    Re: Unpopular Wrestling Opinions

    Taichi is criminally underrated (aside from pure workrate) and the meltdowns he causes are hilarious. One of my favourite characters and, seriously, one of the best heels. Have to be if you're getting the crowd to chant fuck off at you. People don't like him... which is exactly the desired reaction so I think he's great/


    About singles/tags: Really no preference for me. Some singles matches capture that magic too, Tig. Guess it just really depends what you're into. I would guess there's magic in witnessing a team rise up together and shit though.

    Re: Unpopular Wrestling Opinions

    His match with TAKA Michinoku in BOSJ is one of my favourite matches from the tournament and this year, altogether. Really well done IMO. I imagine that might be an unpopular opinion


    Another: Oedo Tai are, legit, the worst thing in current wrestling viewing right now.

    Why would it be unpopular? It was a 6 star classic. :lol No but the crowd loved it surprisingly.

    I could have swore that Taichi had go away heat with Shake during the Super J Cup.

    just based on match quality, yeah. I didn't really know much about him or see much of him prior to the tournament. changed my mind now that I get that the entire point of his character is to have go away heat

    that said, still iffy on the point of having him in the tournament but it's the same sorta shtick with Yano and G1. Just makes for convenient booking/rests.

    From what you've read.



    James Ellsworth is the man. Is this unpopular? Probably in some circles.

    Nope I watch old school wrestling. But lol at trying to be like Nicky.

    I loved the match from MSG in February 86 and the one from March at Maple Leaf Gardens in 86 (it's shown on Primetime episode 71)

    Re: Unpopular Wrestling Opinions

    - Daniel Bryan was never going to be a massive star. He didn't have what it takes to draw as well as Cena, let alone Austin or Rock.

    - ROH is terrible.

    - Kevin Owens has a terrible look, and is a vastly overrated performer.

    - Kevin Nash is one of the greatest wrestling minds alive today.

    - Seth Rollins is one of the most boring main-eventers in recent memory. He's okay in the ring, but terrible elsewhere.

    - Sami Zayn wouldn't have received a try-out 20 years ago, and that is a good thing.

    - Hogan is a much better worker than people give him credit for.

    - CM Punk's "pipebomb" did more damage to the wrestling industry than good.

    - Batista and Goldberg are both underrated.

    Omega has it all to prove in the big leagues. Drawing in Japan is one thing. Drawing in America is another.
