Selling is the single most important aspect of pro wrestling, especially when you're the babyface. As a babyface, you're main objective should be to sell. A lot of babyfaces just don't understand or maybe they just don't know, just how damn important it is to sell. That's why the business suffers from a lack of good babyfaces. As a bayface, your selling, which goes beyond just holding the limb for 2 seconds, is what gets you over. Selling isn't just holding your arm for 2 seconds when it's kicked. Selling is in the facial expressions, it's in your body language, you shouldn't be doing leap frogs over the turnbuckle 20 minutes into a match cause obviously you can't be that hurt! The key to being a good babyface is to sell. Not do a bunch of cool looking moves. There's an old saying "If you're the babyface you can lose every match, but once you know how to sell, you're a superhero"
Selling is what makes or breaks a match for me cause selling is what creates the suspension of disbelief. Great selling creates the illusion, the magic that is pro wrestling.
