People who think Finlay is not good are what's wrong with today's fans. One of the most underrated in-ring generals and storytellers ever. Brock Lesnar is not "legit", Fit Finlay is. Oh, and I'm very surprised that people didn't recognize the storytelling in Finlay/Callihan III. Do you know anything about Sami's character in DGUSA/EVOLVE?
I'm a huge Finlay mark but that's coming off as extremely elitist. I would majorly facepalm if someone said that Davey Richards was better than Finlay but at the end of the day it's all subjective. I can totally see how people may find Finlay boring due to the spot-heavy nature of the indies today, but even if I don't agree with that statement, I don't think their opinion is wrong either.
This reminds of a YouTuber who said that Meltzer giving Richards/Elgin 5 stars would harm the future of wrestling. His theory would be that aspiring wrestlers would try to emulate that match. For every one person may of thought that match wasn't that great, there are 10 others that loved the match.
