I'd take a look at it because I'm a big Ryder fan, but I can't stand Barrett so... Decisions, decisions.... I'll watch it before class tomorrow
We need more people like us in the GOAT forum, honestly. We need a more knowledgeable and less Rock-Austin draw war based perspective on things. I wanna see greatness judged by in-ring prowess and mic skills (ACTUAL MIC SKILLS) , not on ratings (because it makes absolutely no sense to judge it on that).
I don't know how you feel about fast paced, hard hitting 3 minute matches, but if you like em', you'll like the match.
Honestly, it's pointless to try and argue things when it comes to Rock and Austin with their marks, especially Rock marks since they have more numbers on the forums with Rock's recent returns (I have no doubt more Austin marks will come when he comes back to face Punk). I'm a big mark for both guys, but there is no arguing with them. One says Austin at his peak is the biggest draw of all time. The other says Rock in 1999 surpassed Austin, broke records, etc. "Austin brought in the AE." "Rock kept it going and surpassed Austin." blah blah blah blah blah.
And as far as trying to change the subject to stuff when it doesn't come to drawing, it's just as fruitless of an effort. The main reason is a lot of these people who always argue about ratings will only stick to just those, ratings, numbers, etc., and to be fair, that is the only factual way to really judge someone on the GOAT list. Matches, mic work, etc. is all subjective. So they don't see a point in arguing the technical aspects of a match or promo and would rather just quote numbers from buyrates, ratings, quotes from Meltzer, and all that stuff. I'd like to see things a little more subjective based though as the numbers have been argued to the death not just in that thread, but for the last year or so.
Yeah, it's good stuff for what was given. Shows me that a match of decent length between the two would be worth a watch. Both are underrated workers, imo.
Length doesn't always matter however. (you'll like this example) Danielson vs Sandow from the past Smackdown was . Only 4:55. I have it at **. I want another match asap.
Really liked the match. **1/2 for me. Still wanted a beard-pulling tug-of-war between the two.
Would've been ********** if that happened.
