Re: Has Anyone Noticed Something About Indy "breakouts" in recent years
I just think the indy boom that generated alot of those names was kinda once in a lifetime, literally all those names kinda showed up once wcw and ecw closed.....meaning there was nowhere for them to go. They had watched these comapanies as children and dreamed to wretle for them now they coudln't so they busted their asses to make sure they made their names known.
Plus i think the indies as far as companies were a little more stingy on who got to work shows.....most were run by Old school workers or atleast people in the business. Now any guy with 50 bucks can run an indy and any kid with spray painted kickpads and a knowledge of how to fake strong style or lucha can be a wreslter.
This is no hate on some of the actual talent out there now....guys like gargano, callihan, generico, the bucks. But for everyone one of them there are a thousand Joe blows... who copy the moveset of indy wrestlings past and yell alot.
