Re: Generico Has Arrived!!!!!

Although the rest of that post was useful, I should point out. I know what you mean with the third point. I've seen a few matches outside WWE where it's like they just hit finisher after finisher and keep kicking out.

I notice it in particular in Japanese wrestling, but considering I'm not overly familiar with the style there outside the couple of matches I've watched on YouTube I dunno if that's just part of their style in general.

I'm rambling.

It wasn't banned. He decided not to use it because it's not a great TV move. He said something in an interview about it being awkward for TV angles because of the positioning etc. With the LaBell/Yes/No Lock, his face is on show and it looks more presentable, I guess. He's used the CM a few times before, though.

I would hope that they (or any of the other great technicians the WWE has snapped up recently) would put on a long-form match that showed off their storytelling abilities and not some spot-monkey kitchen sink approach to moves. They're two of the best, but a big part of the game is the psychology.

Ainsi sera, groigne qui groigne.

Re: Generico Has Arrived!!!!!

Well I dunno what you people are talking about, Generico is in Mexico, he tweeted that the weather is quite beautiful, and you know, this NXT rookie apparantly got a twitter @iLikeSamiZayn so I don't know why you all keep linking them together, that's like saying Colt Cabana is Matt Classic.

Re: Generico Has Arrived!!!!!

Sami Zayn is better than Sammy Sane. His first tweet was rather funny. Some reports say that his promo work has been rather good, despite tht not being a core part of his original character.

The former El Generico is now using the name Sami Zayn in WWE NXT. He has a new Twitter account at @iLikeSamiZayn and tweeted the following early this morning:

"Twitter eh? Since I have never ever been on Twitter before, I @hope I'm doing this #right. Hashtag new #to Twitter, hashtag figuring #it out"

Using eh? like a proper Canadian. I may like this guy after all.

I'm guessing there's a correlation?

Re: Generico Has Arrived!!!!!

Shouldn't the greatest wrestlers be able to work with a limited moveset? Look at HBK, He put on 2 consecutive classics with Undertaker @ Wrestlemania, and none of the movesets were overly complex, or in abundance.

Well he still owns the El Generico gimmick and can do what he wants with it in his spare time. He seems pretty focused on making sure El Generico is kept separate from Sami Zayn - probably because he has zero faith in the wwe handling him properly and wants to keep the El Generico character relevant as a fall back option he could go right back into without missing any paychecks. It makes a lot of sense given the wwe goes out of their way to own everything about the Sami Zayn character that he protects what he has/owns.
