From best I could tell, he couldn't take a full-force bump, nor could he throw a lariat. He worked well with what he had, but you could tell he couldn't go as hard as he would have liked. Can't say I blame the guy for calling it a career, though. He's got a bright future ahead of him as a commentator.
And I was at that R-Pro Black Friday show, and it was garbage. Best part of the night came at the end, where they held a free meet and greet with every single wrestler in attendance. It was geeky but nice to shake hands with Steen, Generico, the Briscoes, Harry Smith, etc.
Oh, and fuck Teddy Hart. That high spot from the balcony was SO unnecessary and, well, Teddy Hart-like that I wanted to slap him. He walked (crawled) over to where I was standing and sold it(?) by panting and saying, "Someone call an ambulance!" The girl next to me just shook her head and called him out for being such a dumb fuck. I wouldn't be surprised if he legit injured himself on that one.
