Strikes!!

I hate it when commentators refer to wrestling punches and kicks as "strikes".

Even worse is Taz who, when he accidentally correctly calls it as a kick or punch, says "Oh, sorry, I mean strike".

Fuck off. It's wrestling. It's a punch, a kick, a clothesline, NOT a strike.

Re: Strikes!!

Good thing that I don't watch TNA.

Tough for those who do.

But minor stuff like this don't bother.

Thing that did was last year when they had Cole/King/Jr storyline. Now that was one of the most annoying things they could have ever done....never before and I pray to wrestling gods never again.

Re: Strikes!!

Strike

verb (used with object)
1.
to deal a blow or stroke to (a person or thing), as with the fist, a weapon, or a hammer; hit.

I bet the Wiki really drives you up the bend...





Consequences...

Re: Strikes!!

Yeah, fuck wikipedia. It's ENCYCLOpedia, fucking making up words and everything :P

Honestly though, before MMA got popular, did commentators used to refer to it as 'a strike'? Was Stone Cold ''once of the best strikers in the game''?

Re: Strikes!!

But that's what they are? If you get angry at people naming things by their correct term I suggest some sort of counseling for you. Oh ah, I mean, talky-help-time.

No but Undertaker was often referred to as the best pure striker in the game.

Re: Strikes!!

I've got no issue with this word...

"A series of vicious strikes."

What is wrong with that?
