They're tons of them out there actually. They can be found at the nearest high school gym near you.

I don't think most people get that's what WWE was going for in their booking of him. To be fair, while this was going on, these people were either still in their dad's ballsac or too young while it was happening to truly get what was going on. It's pretty funny, if nothing else.

I liked his character in WCW and I did enjoy the boring character they built in WWE as well. It worked I guess.

He always put on a great match though. One of the ones I remember most was an eight minute match against Kurt Angle in 2001 when Storm was Intercontinental champion. Storm went out while Angle was talking and trashed the US. Let to a great match.

Lance Storm pulled off the most beautiful Rolling Single Legged Boston Crab.

Lance Storm did have one hell of a dropkick. I'll give him that.

"if I can be serious for a minute" that was funny in its own right considering he was a heel in america

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.
I don't give a damn if this post is already quoted 20 times in this thread. I quote it again because there is so much truth.
Repped btw

How the fuck can he be one of the best when he had no fucking charisma or personality? The guy was just expressionless and OP, you're right. He made everything look so damn scripted. His matches just looked like he was going through the motions. No facial expressions, nothing. The way he'd run the rope, boring. How he put on a submission hold, boring. Everything sucked about Lance Storm.

Lance is one of the worst wrestlers of all time, for all the reasons mentioned. One of the best my ass. How the fuck could someone be dull and be called a great wrestler? People really put Lance Storm in the same category as Austin? Or Hogan? Or Michaels? Or Taker? Get the fuck out of here. Anyone saying Lnce Storm is a great wrestler is nothing but a 'workrate' mark.
Ignore these users. The same users probably think Lance Storm or Tyson Kidd in a WrestleMania main event is better for the business than the Rock or the Undertaker

The segment in your signature > every Lance Storm match
That's how this business works
