Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

We have a DVD highlighting the best high-flyers in history so I would love to see a similar DVD highlighting the best technical wrestlers.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I'd rather the best brawlers, tbh. When done well, brawling is a lot more entertaining than technical wrestling, IMO. It's just a shame not many people can do it well

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Best of technical wrestlers set wouldn't really interest me, even if they could use Benoit. They'd just throw the shitty matches on like Angle Vs Benoit (not all shitty, but not exactly the best examples of good technical wrestling either) and then a bunch of repeats (Rey/Malenko matches where Malenko works a random body part for 90% of the match then they do some counters at the end and someone wins...).

And the film ends with a deus ex machina when Cena's hanging off a cliff before Kane lowers his big dick to lift him to safety.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I think WWE considers Orton to be a technical wrestler.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

That wouldn't surprise me. In the Foley feud in 2000 they tried to play up Triple H being a "technical wrestler" having to step up his physicality game (no pun) against the hardcore brawler Cactus Jack.

Or even better, Triple H was the "technical wrestler" in the 3 Stages of Hell match with Austin in 2001.

"Technical wrestler" is just a term they throw out there to add to a wrestler's character as opposed to an actual description of his wrestling style.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Triple H was so hopeless until the Foley feud (as a wrestler) that they had to bill him as a technical wrestler because he wasn't a brawler, a mauler, or anything specific. He wasn't bad but Triple H hadn't stood out as wrestler and he was more of a character than the guy who could do it in the ring. Everything changed after that feud though.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Trips in 2000 was all over the show. When he was fighting Cactus he was labelled a technician but when he was fighting Benoit just a few months later he was labelled a brawler lol.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

And yet he isn't very good at either being a brawler or a technician . Jack of all trades and master of none.
