Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread
Well I see something big is about to happen on SD this week. Thank you guys for making good use of the spoiler tags. I hate spoilers. Ruin everything!
And going back a few pages, the topic of Malenko vs Guerrero. It's funny actually, last night I decided to give it a watch but ended up taking it off. Not because I foudn it to be bad, I was just really freaking tired. But I noticed something that irked me.
You see whenever I shit all on ECW and say it was nothing but a blood and guts promotion that ran its course and Heyman in all his greatness failed tor realize that things had to change, a lot of people like to counter me with "Oh ECW had great technical matches as well and the fans appreciated it as much as the bloodfets". Well, I call bullshit. Here you have Guerrero and Malenko busting their asses in the ring and what are the fans more interested in? Some fucking drunk getting kicked out. I mean don't get me wrong, for the 10 minutes that I watched they seemed to be into it, whenever Malenko did a cartwheel.
I know people won't take my opinion seriously because I never saw ECW during its glory days, but I have a brain. It may not be the biggest but it sure as hell is enough to make an observation and form an opinion. I always say that Heyman had a great idea but had no freaking clue what to do after a while and let things get way too out of hand and he desensitized the business and the fans.
But that's just a little side note I wanted to make on EEE-CEE-DUBYAH. Back to Malenko/Guerrero, I'm gonna finish it off in a couple minutes but why am I not surprised to hear that Malenko is no selling something. Good Lord, it seems as if that style of wrestling been plaguing the indies since day one. I would love to see if I could find some matches from the 70s and 80s that featured the hard hitting no selling style of wrestling. Juts to really see how long it's been around.
