Re: Official Indy DVD Thread
Still doesn't change the fact he's putting on cosistently great matches.
But he isn't putting them on. Yes he is in the ring doing moves, but it is by no effort of his that the matches end well. The biggest contibution he gives is is overhyped nature. If Micheal Elgin started uses KENTA's moveset like KENTA is we would poop on it. The good years put blinders on us all, making us ignore the second hand efforts he provides.
A wrestling match is like a balanced diet. The basics are carbs, keeping you going. Armdrags may not be the highlight, but they're key to the development. Dairy is emotion and crowd interaction, like bones, they strengthen the match, and in there absense, the it will fall apart. Meat is moves like suplexes and finishers. They’re cool, but if you rely on them you’d be unhealthy, and the matches unwatchable. Mat work is fruits and vegetables. We may not like them, but some is sweet chain wrestling. Last is spots and indy MoVEz~!, your sugars and fats. You can't just eat chocolate, and thus you need to do more than flips and head drops to get above ****.
