Re: Official Indy DVD Thread
Again, why can't people accept that the man to many people has flaws. We're not all going to love and adore the same people, some people can think Masters still sucks like its 2005 but so long as they at least try and make a factual claim as to why they've taken that opinion, you won't see me flipping out.
I'm an old school guy, guys like Finlay have a better claim to be current BITW material than Edwards or 99% of workers anywhere in the world because the guy just gets pro wrestling, you put him in any situation to get a young guy over, or to get the young guy heat etc and he'll work a great match with him and make the guy look a star. Eddie Edwards gets asked to make someone look good and he thinks superkick exchanges and multiple impressive moves will do the trick, no-one is calling him the worst worker to grace the earth and truth be told he's annoyed me less than Davey in the past, but he still has problems in my view that make me think him being the best worker in the world or the future of pro wrestling is a laughable/worrying thought.
Rather than try and challenge any of the valid and stated points the three of you have just gone into a shell and thrown out hyperbole and put words into people's mouths, you can think he's a great wrestler all you want if he appeals and entertains you but be prepared to accept liking him is subjective and there's no fact that makes him an elite worker untouchabe of criticism. All the best workers will have their detractors since people like a wide variety of wrestling styles, I myself have changed my opinion 360 degrees on so many workers it isn't even funny as well as developing new styles and tastes that have led me to accessing numerous promotions I'd never heard of 2 years ago.
If Eddie Edwards being accused of a man who very rarely gets the most out of his spots and is over reliant on these impressive spots to pad out his matches to the point where they lose their impact is such a disputed view, then type out a coherent retort instead of acting like we're in the TNA section and its 'cool' to reply in sentence form bashing the other party.
It ain't bloody hard.
EDIT: Crabtree that's laughable, hell Richards/Edwards had a notoriously quiet crowd who peaked volume wise in spurts but never consistently made the atmosphere I was expecting, probably because both men took such extraordinary abuse in tandem with little set up or selling of the afterfects that it was hard to buy into either man being in danger and thus no-one to root for. You've just side stepped any criticism and labelled him 'untouchable', which is BS considering I've seen you tear into a lot of wrestlers who've produced great matches and helped the business, finance wise (Jooooooooooooooooooooooohn Ceeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeena rings a bell) and its laughable to see you just crawl into a shell and try to block out any criticisms. Neither of us can be right/wrong since its a subjective opinion which people will naturally support or disagree with, at least me and Jawbreaker and flag sabbath are actually discussing the matter at hand, rather than trying to psycho analyse how 'Die Hard Eddie Edwards' has fallen fowl of the WF Other Wrestling Section.
