Re: Rate the wrestlers you hate
You seem to think that Angle having a legit background is a legit credential on being a good worker. Think about this, Lawler is considered a much better worker than Angle and he's an out of shape man who moveset consisted on a fist drop, dropkick and piledriver. It's not about how many big spots you can do, it's about how you use them.
...which is completely subjective, of course. Furthermore, the style and the environment Lawler worked in was radically different from today´s product, which makes the comparison pretty much invalid to begin with. Probably a bunch of old people on that forum, who wish we still had territories, putting their childhood heroes on a pedestal.
Let´s just end this argument here and not derail this thread any further. I like Kurt Angle, you like Lawler and Cena. I put emphasis on actual wrestling ability, you on "Sports Entertainment". We both like a good show, so there´s that.
If you don't pass the torch, the lights go out.
