Re: Explain how Goldberg is still awesome and Ryback sucks?
I swear, if Ryback came into wcw as Bill Goldberg and got the same push and everything else that went down he'd leave his mark the exact same way Goldberg did. Fans back then just loved to see a big guy dominate. You cant fucking tell me it wouldnt work the same when all the fans go fucking BALISTIC APE SHIT and all Goldberg did was a kick. A KICK. Ryback has a natural presence to him. Its todays era and todays fans that make it hard for what he is to WORK. Fans will NEVER EVER go fucking ape shit over little things today because its a different time, different era, with different fans and some of the same fans from back then that have their little nostalgia goggles on. if Ryback the person was Bill Goldberg back then, and Bill Goldberg was Ryback today he'd generate the same exact thoughts Ryback gets today.
Try, just try thinking about Greenberg coming in today with Rybacks push. Would it work with fans going ape shit for him?
Back then all this guy who was even greener than Ryback actually is had to do was do a couple of moves, and power moves and scream at the camera because fans were just either Rowdy, or Rowdy and drunk with their buddies at events. Wrestling in his time was like a group of people bringing their buddies to a football game to get drunk and scream. Its just super toned down today and more like live theatre than ever.
Everyone's a cynic, no-one will enjoy wrestling, they're too busy
pointing out what "sucks".
