Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

charisma - compelling attractiveness or charm that can inspire devotion in others

Mike Bennett is a charisma vacuum.

He's a great old-school heel, deliberately avoiding all the things that would make an indy crowd mark for him. He's basically playing a WWE Superstar, Drew MacIntyre for example, in ROH and it's working out really well so far. Whether it will draw money remains to be seen, his act is a useful part of the mid-card but I don't know how far it can go without being too heavily compromised.

EDIT: I noticed in last episode, the segment with Eddie Edwards, regarding his "Die Hard" nickname, how the Ladder War 2/broken elbow situation was the origin of the "Die Hard" moniker, but they lie. He was "Die Hard" when he debuted with the company, IIRC.
Even if you're right, what they said is true enough for wrestling. In any case, it could be said that the Die Hard nickname wasn't picked up on by other people until Ladder War 2 which would make the segment true.

He should call himself Mr Entertainment and do things to really piss ROH fans off. Like bring two hot chicks who can't wrestle worth a shit to the ring to wrestle a match because "All you people want is eye candy." Or have a Hornswoggle rippoff as his mascot because "Everyone loves midgets".

Major heat right there.

I believe he is dating Maria. He should have her as his valet.

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

Oh come one, let's be honest with ourselves; we all know that sooner or later someone is going to notice that so many people hate Bennett that it's no longer 'cool' to do so. Then we will all become huge Bennett worshippers simply to avoid appearing conformist.

Duh.

WWE debut guys and immediately tell us that they're going to be pushed based solely on the whims of the office rather than the paying customers' preferences, MacIntyre just happend to be the first name that popped into my head when drawing that comparison since Bennett's push appears to be based on that idea.

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

1. I hope Bennett beats Davey clean for the title to watch the IWC collectively have a stroke.

2. I can't wait for Bennett haters to say "I liked him the entire time"
