Re: What is the appeal of "wrasslin'"?

Michals vs. Flair is a good story but it's a bittersweet match to watch for me... Flair never wanted to retire and that's pretty clear so it kinda hurts the story a bit.

we're getting off track but an earlier post rang so true for me.. if the OP only cares about storylines, why watch wrestling at all? Tv shows will always be vastly better when it comes to that. So their must be some aspect of the actual wrestling that the person likes.

Sir you are not making any sense. Bumping is not storytelling. Table spots are not storytelling. Counters are not storytelling. All I am asking for you is to explain what "great story" did they tell. You claim they did, ok. Back up your argument. The brilliance of it? Give me a break. There was nothing brilliant about it. Veteran faces prime athlete. Veteran comes close to victory using his signature tactics. Prime athlete wins, the veteran congratulates him and the prime athlete humbly lets the veteran have his last moment. If you think that is something brilliant then I feel very sorry for you have obvisuly been brainwashed by Vincent Kennedy McMahon. There is a lot more to wrestling than "spots" but the only people that perceive wrestling like that are rohbots and your breed is even worse because you dismiss EVERYTHING outside of DA WWE-EAH and then hypocritically enjoy the same style once it DOES happen in your beloved compan. You're talking about Eddie Edwards and Davey Richards (who I loathe) just because you assume everyone in this section likes that type of wrestling and that is not a sign of a very intelligent human being. My favourite wrestlers are a lot better sellers than Shawn fucking Michaels, but I don't go around calling everyone who likes him an "ignorant smart mark".

Re: What is the appeal of "wrasslin'"?

To those saying how does so-n-so make crowds erupt? Indy wrestling gets more interaction from the crowd than WWE events 90% of the time. Terrible argument. Something is always happening. Even if it's one guy going wrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrESTLING! to another going YAY! it's always going on. If a match in the WWE is dead, it's fucking dead.

No. A Davey/Eddie match is in no way better than a Mark Henry squash.

Re: What is the appeal of "wrasslin'"?

...Wrestling itself? What kind of question is that? Pro wrestling is pro wrestling. It's an art. You either get, or you don't. If you don't like it, don't watch it (and don't rape it, like Russo) and go watch something else (in your case - jerry springer, trashy b movies, etc)

Well it's a good thing my original comment wasn't aimed directly at you. If you were to read and analyse (not over-analyse) what I said, you'd know that I was using Flair/Michaels and Richards/Edwards purely as an example. I'm sorry if I wasn't too clear on that.

You jumping on me and being quick to say that I'm nothing but a mark for WWE is no different than me calling you a smart-mark. I apologised for my remarks, however. Michaels is far from my favourite wrestler as well, but again he seemed like a good example at the time.

Mark henry should have retired a decade ago so your very argument is invalidated
