Re: Official Indy DVD Thread
It's funny you should mention condescending attitudes. Many of your laughable statements, that I pointed out in that post, were actually made during botched attempts to patronise other posters. The Danielson one sticks out in my mind for that very reason.
- Backtracking and climbing down, on things that you've said, won't get you anywhere. The posts are there to be searched for and found.
- Suggesting, now, that the Tiger Mask rope flip is the only high-flying or flip-based spot in Bryan Danielson's arsenal isn't going to wash with anyone that's ever watched a Danielson match. Danielson was well-known for springboard dives, missile dropkicks, flip bumps from lariats and so on, during his ROH run. Like any good wrestler, of his size, Danielson used his speed and agility to level the playing field and to add a unique dimension to his act. This all went completely over your head, yet you claim to be an ROH fan and smarter than the average, to boot. Amazing.
- At various times in the past year, Eddie Edwards has gotten the biggest crowd reactions in ROH. At all times, his reactions have been amongst the top few. You choose to turn a blind eye to this. Perhaps the agenda that Legend suggested...or something similar?
- You still don't seem to understand how the visual element of a staged performance works (i.e. Tintin lookalike Roderick Strong portraying a villainous cult member or The Young Bucks looking like Christian nerds and playing an arrogant jock gimmick). It's a basic concept. Beyond basic. It's the reason that costume departments and make-up artists exist.
Anyway, I apologise for not being able to understand wrestling, in the deep way that you do. It's not as if I've been watching it for longer than you've been alive.
