Um... Yeah.

And also- I think that most of you were kids at the time. So you judge Yoko otherwise.

You're shocked that people have a completely different opinion to yours on something that is a matter of opinion, and yet you talk about people being too young to have an opinion on it?

Re: Yokozuna was great

to me yoko was one of the best however i feel he was badly booked in 93 - he didnt really show his greatness till he fought with taker in fact he was the 1st person to beat taker in a casket match,his match at wm 10 was better than their first one at wm9 in my eyes.

Says the 19-year-old? Real.

People should look up pre-WWF Yoko as well. Back when he was a normal (at least by Samoan standards) size. Pretty crazy to see him at the size of Afa or Manu.

Re: Yokozuna was great

He was an awesome heel. I think he drew the most heat in the New Generation Era too. the guy was a heat magnet, especially with Mr Fuji by his side. He also had a lot of stamina for a guy his size, the guy would sweat buckets but could work a match and sell very well.

Re: Yokozuna was great

THANK YOU. Perfect way to describe it. Drew a ton of Heat which is what heels try to do. Yoko could draw heat in a fucking icebox.

Thread closed.

The funny part about this is that Bob Holly stated in a shoot that Yokozuna put Bret over and passed Bret the torch... One of the most laughably idiotic things I've ever heard another person say.

The guy had heat like Miz and Sheamus had heat.

He had heat from a small crowd.

Which is to say- He sucked.

By the way- Fuji wasn't enough, so they decided to put Cornette in as well.

"Had a lot of stamina"- Oh, so that's why Bret told that Yoko wanted to finish their match early?

Yeah, but I didn't watch back then so I can judge Yoko by REAL standards.

Re: Yokozuna was great

Even though I'm pro-Yokozuna, I'm gonna have to play devil's advocate here for a second... How was he an awesome heel, exactly? He didn't even talk until he turned face.


^furious, projects self-image onto others^

Talent/charisma draws. Not size.
