I hear a lot of people say things like "It's the context of the match" but to me, that has nothing to do with it. I remember a while back when I shat on Punk/Airires people were telling me, it's because I took it out of context. The part where Punk popped up like nothing after the Pepsi Plunge was apparently to show his determination. You could be the most determined motherfucker around, someone hits you that (not to mention all the fucking cannon balls of moves from before) it's light out. I probably wouldn't have mind had Punk kick out of a 2 but to get directly up after it, is stupid if you ask me.
In the case of Generico/Steen, I get it was a year in the making but there's so many other ways to go about it. Start off with a brawl, then introduce the weapons. It's foreplay>fucking>rest>fucking>cumshot. Not cumshot>rest>cumshot>rest>cumshot>cumshot>cumshot. And, the finish, meh. I get the message is determination but they went about it wrong imo. You don't need to drop a guy on his head and have him kick out 3 times in 2 minutes to show he's desperate. It become a finisher and nearfall fest quickly. There was just too much head dropping and near falls. These things do not make a match dramatic nor do they add any sort of story. It's just annoying imo. Even if that was the route to put over the whole "What do I have to do to put this guy out" one steel chair certainly isn't as clearly 50 weren't. I get what the match is trying to convey but imo under no circumstance is working a match like this believable. It's like the veteran vs rookie story where the veteran drops the son of a bitch 20 times on his head only to have the rookie drop him about 2 times and win the match. It's just never the way to work a match imo. I don't care how determined you are, I drop you your head, you lay here bitch. Once, you kick out maybe. Twice....eh. But by the third time, that's it. Four, five and six times and the match ventures into finisher fest. Especially when right after dropping you on your head, you get up like nothing and drop me on my head and we basically take turns on each other.
Ah but fuck it. Speaking of out of context, this entire fucking post is out of context lol. I just needed a place to discuss why i think indy wrestling is in the toilet and well this place needs a match discussion thread dammit!
