Re: Official Indy DVD Thread
In my own defense, I was specifically addressing the feud with Generico as pertains to the Steen Wolf match.
But to further the discussion, if one looks at Kevin Steen as a character/independent wrestler in any promotion he works for, he doesn't change his behavior. The little things he does screams heel even if the audience reacts differently. Picking fights with fans, blowing snot, spitting, mocking, etc..
I see Steen as a throwback to the 'old-school' wrestling villains.
A question. How much does Steen's hero/anti-hero/heel status have to do with the modern wrestling fan's attitudes? The Attitude Era blew the doors off of the 'sheep cheering the hero' mentality and fans nowadays seem to cheer who they like regardless to face/heel booking/positioning, especially on the independent level.
I love professional-wrestling.
