no, Eddie doesn't just work a different style. there are several wrestlers who work very similar styles and are much better at it than Edwards, Roderick Strong and Akira Tozawa, to name two. Edwards has a poor sense of timing and his match structuring makes viewer investment incredibly difficult. His matches are repetitive, which is not necessarily a bad thing, but when coupled with his awful timing and lack of any distinctive or interesting character, means he is by no means a particularly great wrestler.

Now, he's not Greg Excellent bad, obviously, but when you consider to the amount of love he was getting the first few months of this year, a backlash was inevitable once people figured out that he really just isn't that good.

- Mike Quackenbush & Jigsaw vs Steenerico is one of the best indy tag matches i've seen.
- "Two Straight, Two Straight" Ugh, hated that storyline so much, especially when Roderick Strong & Rocky Romero got a fall against them and not Steenerico.

Also i never liked the fact that Steenerico went 0/3 in title loses to the Briscoes.

That show would be so OOP by now if it included Nigel vs. Danielson.

He also suffers from Roderick Strong presence syndrome.

My dislike of Edwards isn't fueled on joining a bandwagon either, and tbh I think its a BS claim to lump all people who dislike Edwards into a group where the onus is 'they don't like him but don't care to admit why'. I can name you plenty of reasons had Jawbreaker not covered them as well as he did, Edwards suffers from the same mindset of 'go go action go' that takes me out of independent matches: aside from lacking character, established control segments that progress a match rather than kill time the man is a fan of the stale and crap 'strike exchange' battle (seriously watch that bullshit superkick exchange with Steen at BOLA 2011: utter crap) which he very rarely builds to or establishes as a great spot: seriously do people not get why Kobashi vs Sasaki managed to do it so well but these other guys in Japan/US and Europe can't? His matches often have great spots/bursts of athleticism but he lacks the core essentialls of a good worker: he's like the Michael Bay of Wrestling, the visual effects may be impressive to watch but he'll never make you emotionally react to them because he'll attempt an even bigger spot rather than properly sell the last one.

I get a lot of independent workers feel they have to differentiate themselves from how WWE and TNA workers wrestle but these monotonous and lifeless strike exchanges which mean nothing because they're not built to or sold have to go. Why should I feel Davey is beatable and in trouble when he can take a top rope stomp through a table and show no visible signs of weakness immediately after?

Meh, Edwards is pretty watchable once you accept him as the "Average Joe" of Indys. He's just that "Guy next door" type of wrestler. The key is not to expect too much.

You bring up a good point in that so many indy matches have all these crazy spots that too often the finish just seems flat. Why did the 7th Superkick beat him but not the 6th or the 8th?

I still love Edwards. I thought he had some amazing matches with Daniels and also feel that the match he had with Strong in NYC went against a lot of the main complaints in that the match told a really exciting story where Edwards played an underdog character. Also Edwards winning the title is my one of my biggest mark out moments at an event I've ever had. The biggest if you only look at indies.

Watched my first shimmer match last week.

They did a "strike exchange" with high roundhouse kicks to the head, then after a female had her opponent kick out of her finisher at 1.

I facepalmed.

Wrestler has best year of his career. Gains more widespread popularity. Teenagers seize opportunity to attention whore, by cobbling together a pseudo-intellectual antithesis. The world doesn't listen.

Rinse. Repeat.
