Great wrestler. Great technician. But was he entertaining? No!

No one makes it to the top without been entertaining. Been a great wrestler is not enough

This. I'm all for entertaining wrestlers and characters, but it's quite clear that some people didn't get Lance Storm or his function. Having every wrestler being an amped-up cartoon character is one thing that people complain about ad nauseum nowadays. Have the characters - yes! - but like in British comedy, you need to have some "straight men" to serve as an effective foil to accentuate the more colorful ones.

That's why things are in the shape they're in today. But to each Vince's own. So, by that token, it is implied that there does not exist a single, solitary (yes, that redundancy was necessary) wrestling fan who likes wrestlers who are just wrestlers - whose "entertainment" comes from the wrestling itself, and who find the wrestling itself the most entertaining thing about pro-wrestling. Oh, okay. I'm gonna put my palm over my face now.

I think Storm was a terrific technician but he just wasn't the best at getting the crowd going. A good wrestler but nothing special.

I love all these posts defending Storm saying I don't how you can find him to be boring and than add in oh yeah he operates under a boring demeanor because it suits him.

As a trainer I'd call Lance Storm, but I've never had any interest watching a match of his. Shark boy is right. He's lifeless.

When you score a 0/10 in the theatrics of wrestling you need to be masked.

Pure wrestling does not sell. It never did and it never will. Characters are what sells. There's a reaosn why wrestling is in a slump right now. Because nobody is interesting enough to put asses in seats.

Lance Storm is not a GOAT. He's not one of the best and he certainly isn't a great wrestler either. 20 years from now we'd be saying, "Who the fuck was Lance Storm?" He neever put asses in seats, he never made people care.

The concept of a great wrestler has been lost thanks to all the vanilla fucks running around on the indies in their generic black tights with their generic black elbow pads and their generic knee pads, all running around with the same boring-ass "Best Technical Wrestler In The World" and "DEM KICKS BREH!!" shtick.

And as far as Lance's Storm charisma in the ring goes, what fucking charisma? Running the ropes with a blank face? Sitting in an arm bar emotionless? You wanna know someone who couldn't talk worth shit in the ring but let his wrestling do the talking? Chris Benoit. Here's a guy who couldn't talk worth cunt on the mic. But he had charisma in the ring.

Contrary to popular belief, Benoit wasn't a 'workrate' guy. I mean, how many moves did Benoit did in a match? It was the same snap suplex, head butt, northern lights, cross face. That's it. Sure from time to time he'd bust out something nice. But for the most part Benoit was never a thousand moves a match kind of guy. He wasn't all about technical wrestling. Benoit was a great worker. He told stories. He knew how to sell, how to pace a match, when to go into a heat segment, how to make a firey ass comeback. Chris Benoit is a great example of someone who had no charisma on the mic but had it in the ring. Jeff Hardy is another one. Can't talk, but had so much charisma in his CHARACTER and in the ring that he got extremely over.

The point is, no one is going to agree with me. This is the place where vanilla fucks like Storm are celebrated because he's a great technician and a scientific wrestler and all that bullshit in pro wrestling that doesn't mean a damn.
This is the best post I have read in my life. Fuck vanilla midgets and boring ass indy wrestling. That fatass Kevin Steen is considered a good wrestler by indy marks. I don't think anything more needs to be said.

People need to stop treating pro wrestling like a real sport.

Wrestling is about entertaining characters and crazy stroylines. No amount of spooge you ejaculate while watching the likes of Lance Storm will ever change that.

I don't want to watch two generic, boring dudes lacking in the personality department apply submission holds (fake ones at that) for 30 minutes, if I did, I'd watch amateur wrestling. I want to be entertained, and that's why I watch professional wrestling.

What happens in the ring is merely a tool, a tool used to tell stories. The wrestling aspect will always come third to gimmicks and storylines. People on here have a hard time accepting that, well, sorry, but that's the way it is.

Entertainment sells. Deal with it.

Vince McMahon saw wrestling for what it really is, and that's why WWE is the biggest promotion on the planet.

People like Lance Storm will fucking kill the business. Fuck those guys.

But he's right. This is a business with guys acting like it's a legitimate sport. Undertaker hasn't won every match at WrestleMania because he was always better than his opponents, Cena has not won this year's Royal Rumble because he was stronger than all his 29 opponents, nobody really won a title, Hogan vs Andre, Austin vs Rock, Hogan vs Rock or Undertaker vs HBK didn't really happen because they qualified in some tournaments to compete against each other, it happened because the people at WWE decided it's good for business.
Nobody cares how good Lance Storm wrestles because the rest is meh. Kurt Angle is an Olympic gold medalist but that would mean shit if he wasn't such a good actor, entertainer and cut excellent promos.

Pro-wrestling is not a legitimate sport.....

They are not competitors. It's scripted entertainment. Pro wrestling is storytelling.

Learn to accept it or go watch amateur wrestling.
