Default Strikes!!

I hate it when commentators refer to wrestling punches and kicks as "strikes".

Even worse is Taz who, when he accidentally correctly calls it as a kick or punch, says "Oh, sorry, I mean strike".

Fuck off. It's wrestling. It's a punch, a kick, a clothesline, NOT a strike.

Good thing that I don't watch TNA.

Tough for those who do.

But minor stuff like this don't bother.

Thing that did was last year when they had Cole/King/Jr storyline. Now that was one of the most annoying things they could have ever done....never before and I pray to wrestling gods never again.

Strike

verb (used with object)
1.
to deal a blow or stroke to (a person or thing), as with the fist, a weapon, or a hammer; hit.

I bet the Wiki really drives you up the bend...

Yeah, fuck wikipedia. It's ENCYCLOpedia, fucking making up words and everything :P

Honestly though, before MMA got popular, did commentators used to refer to it as 'a strike'? Was Stone Cold ''once of the best strikers in the game''?

But that's what they are? If you get angry at people naming things by their correct term I suggest some sort of counseling for you. Oh ah, I mean, talky-help-time.

No but Undertaker was often referred to as the best pure striker in the game.

Default Re: Strikes!!

I've got no issue with this word...

"A series of vicious strikes."

What is wrong with that?
