They were never in the same place at the same time. When Malenko was in ECW, Storm was in Smoky Mountain. When Storm came to ECW, Malenko was in WCW. Storm didn't jump ship to WCW until Malenko was already in WWE, and he stayed until the end. And by the time WWE folded in the WCW boys, Malenko was near retirement.

Damn shame, though. That would have been a barnburner.

Thanks. Yeah, probably would have been a technical masterpiece.

He's NOT one of the "best from an in-ring standpoint." That's the entire damn argument!

And I'm not agreeing with him, but if he thinks that that his opinion. I was just pointing out that I thought you interrupted his post wrong because you were talking about ''greatest of all time'' when he was just talking about ring work.

What's up with those nonsense posts "I'd rather watch Malenko or Storm than the Rock or Hogan" in the WWE sections? Go watch it, there are plenty other promotions, I know only that the arena will go nuts when the "Real American" theme starts next time
The arena will also go nuts when Shawn Michaels' theme starts, or Stone Cold, or The Undertaker... and they're much more watchable than Hogan and Rock to me. That's why I don't have this flawed mentality that consists of choosing one over the other. Why can't you just accept that some fans look at different promotions for what they are, and judge them based on what they attempt to accomplish? I don't think that popularity and success means I have to like a guy myself. I still think Hogan sucks, regardless of how much money the guy has to his name. I'd rather watch something that's entertaining over something that's formulaic, predictable, dull just because it appeals to the masses. But again, that's just the way it is for me.

Lance Storm occupies a similar space to Steve Blackman in my mind. (although much better in the ring)

He's just one of those guys that was so dull and uncharismatic that it was kind of awkward and therefore entertaining.

I'm not familiar with a lot of his work but from what I've seen, he's just so dull. His face is like a picture because the expression NEVER changes. Austin's burial of him was pretty on-point and probably the most entertaining something involving Storm has been.

Lance Storm made me a wrestling fan.

I don't think some of the posters ITT realize just how bad WWF was in the early and mid '90s. There were wrestling garbage men, wrestling car thieves, evil dentists, morbidly obese rappers, and numerous other gimmicks that were insulting to the intelligence of the fans. It was anything but vanilla, and it f**king sucked. WWF was a joke, and a bad one at that.

In spring '97 I hated wrestling just like everyone else I knew did, when by some stroke of luck I flipped onto the Spanish station at 1AM on a Sunday morning. I was awe-struck by what I saw. Chris Candido, Lance Storm, Rob Van Dam, and Sabu, 4 people who I previously didn't know existed, were putting on the most jaw-dropping display of athletic artistry I had ever seen. I was immediately a fan. I immediately did a 180 and respected pro wrestlers. And I started setting the VCR to tape every episode of ECW Hardcore TV that showed up in the middle of the night.

I was a fan of a lot of ECW wrestlers, but Storm playing straight-man to Candido's Heenanesque buffonery, while simultaneously wrestling their asses off, was one of ECW's best acts. They had great matches with stars like Van Dam and Sabu, but also pulled damn good ones out of guys like a track marked Axl Rotten, and Raven in the midst of an Oxycontin haze.

When Storm jumped to WCW and later WWF/E, he was often paired with young or just plain terrible wrestlers and he never failed to make his opponents look credible. Being a cold, emotionless heel was his gimmick... as was acting like a boring dork at the end of his WWE run. People hated him because he was good at his job, not bad at it.

Wrestling is subjective and I don't expect everyone to like the same sort of thing, but when I hear people saying that Lance Storm sucked because he was boring I have to think that at least some of them are marks who can't see through a storyline.

Feel free to flame away. I've said my piece.

Yep. Storm acted boring in WWE because thats what he was told to do. If they booked him to be World Champion like Benoit, people would have took notice of his talent. Its a shame but its also amazing how many people don't get this.

You can't just go out there and cut a promo, you have a role to play. And Storm's role was to be that boring guy.
