Great in ring talent. Not sure why you thought he was boring. Maybe you don't like a more methodical style.

To say that Lance Storm wasn't a good wrestler because he wasn't a draw is fucking moronic. Yes, Storm wasn't very charismatic (he wasn't suppose to be anyway, he was a serious wrestler) and he wasn't some big marketable wrestler but his talent in the ring rivals the very best in the ring.

Is Lance Storm among the greatest in ring wrestlers of all time? Yes. Is Lance among the greatest wrestlers of all time list? Clearly not.

So does this mean Bret Hart is not one of the greatest wrestlers of all time because he wasn't that big of a draw? Is Goldberg one of the greatest wrestlers of all time? Fuck no. One of the best draws of all time? Yes. WRESTLING IS NOT ALL ABOUT DRAWING POWER.

Before Vince McMahon turned wrestling into this big entertainment world, the purpose of professional wrestling was two guys in the ring whose objective was to make the audience suspend their belief by creating a realistic match that can be enjoyed by everyone. You Hulk Hogan kool aid drinking fucks have an issue indy wrestlers using bullshit claims but all they are doing is simply working the purpose of professional wrestling in a much more modern and talented manner without all the glam that Vince McMahon created.

(I'm not even bias here. I'm a fan of those who can draw and entertain, but let's act like we have some common sense here.)

I'm not a fan of Lance Storm and I actually find him quite boring. However, his in-ring abilities can't be denied, and wrestling needs people who do the majority of their talking in the ring. People like Storm and Kidd can be valuable assets in the midcard as top tier enhancement talent. A facial expression wouldn't hurt the guy, though.

I never said that he can't wrestle or that he was a terrible wrestler. He looked and had the style most fans don't give a fuck about. The fact that you took something that happened before Hulkamania, 30 years ago, shows what kind of boring guy Lance Storm is and I don't need Hulk Hogan to tell me what wrestler and what kind of wrestling style is boring, I watched in over 20 years as fan wrestlers in their prime who were charismatic, sensational on the mic and better than Lance Storm in the ring like Rick Rude, Brian Pillman, Stunning Steve Austin, Kurt Angle, Randy Savage, Shawn Michaels and many others

I don't know why should anyone give a damn how good Lance Storm is when it comes to the WWE because WWE was for almost 30 years more about entertainment and even great wrestlingmatches like HBK vs Undertaker, HBK vs Angle or Lesnar vs Angle had great segments and great storylines with fantastic acting by the wrestlers involved. Who cares if he's even the best wrestler in the world when just his face is the reason to turn the TV off. If I want to praise a Lance Storm look-alikes match I will watch indy wrestling and post in the other wrestling section but when it comes to WWE he's probably the most boring person who ever appeared in WWE

Even God hasn't created such a boring person for a long time

Lance Storm then



Lance Storm now

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.
Do you really think it's necessary to insult people just because they think Storm is/was great in the ring? Shit, calm down or something. In my eyes, he wasn't charismatic but his execution in the ring was top notch and he could wrestle with the best of them. Ok Hogan had charisma and ripped t shirts and whatnot, but I'd much rather watch Lance Storm's matches than Hogan's.

I just don't care if a guy is jacked up or whatever. I don't care about looks or muscles, because the reason why I watch is to see who can entertain me. There are plenty of guys with muscles who bore the hell out of me. That's just the way it is. I consider just about everything Kevin Nash has done unwatchable.

If you rather watch a Lance Storm match than Hogan, fine, there are hundreds of indy promotions out there. WWE is in a bad shape enough, there is no need for those fans trying to turn WWE into a pure wrestling or indy league.
Hey why don't we make indy leagues sports entertainment? Or maybe turn CZW into PG? Maybe Chikara should be more violent with blood?
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

So how far down does you "greatest of all-time!" go to include people like Lance Storm? He's not even in the conversation for best in the U.S., let alone the world. He's not even top 100! What the hell are you smoking?
