Not really Hulk Hogan is one of the biggest names in the history of wrestlers and he got over with a big boot and a leg drop, it was his mic work that made him the top guy, in ring work helps but being able to talk means a lot more to the wwe then ring work.

With that said Seth should be just fine though, some guys can get over with just their ring work alone and don't need to be a great talker, I don't see him ever getting a world title if he stays in the upper midcard then he's done a great job.

Passable? Have you even HEARD this guy cut a promo? He's John Morrison 2.0.

The wrestling is just a means to an end, you don't need great matches, you just need interesting characters. Look at the 2 boom periods in wrestling, the 80's and the AE. You know what they're known for, specifically, besides characters? A TERRIBLE in ring product. Meanwhile, you contrast that with today, there's a very good in ring product a lot of the time, but there's NO interest.

What everyone really wants for Christmas:

Re: Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins & Roman Reigns Discussion Thread

that article should show all the ney sayers when it comes to his talent. To be considered cult, even in the Indy leagues and then to be considered on level with Bryan and Punk is a huge compliment and it testament to his skill.

like that guy said, he can sell himself on his promo work ALONE, which is a huge asset that many greats have had. Sometimes I feel that the art of playing a character honestly and with passion is dead, Ambrose however is a master of what appears to be a dying art...

Re: Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins & Roman Reigns Discussion Thread

Thanks for telling us wrestling isn't entertaining. Guess we should all stop watching and enjoying matches then.

Re: Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins & Roman Reigns Discussion Thread

also, just to get rid of this debate, Ambrose is not balding...he just has a weirdly large forehead, always had. probably why most of the time he covers it with hair.

Re: Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins & Roman Reigns Discussion Thread

It's not like mic skills can't be worked on ffs. Go back to most of Bryan's NXT promos and they're diabolically bad compared to one of his 2012 anger management promos.

the only difference I see with Bryan is that i've never seen anyone with more passion for the business. this is no insult to other performers but wrestling is literally his sustenance. Bryan improved because he is one of the most driven professional wrestlers in the world. He perfected his in ring ability by traveling the world and being trained everywhere to handle different styles and approaches. its only fitting that he applies that drive to improving his mic work. Bryan's attitude was the main reason he improved.

both Rollins AND Reigns need to come in with that attitude otherwise Ambrose will slaughter them on the mic. its great mic workers that are remembered with the obvious exceptions of great technical wrestlers who can tell a story through wrestling, much like dancing. these people are once in a blue moon and certainly do not encompass Rollins or Reigns (one being a high flyer and the other being very green in the ring).

Re: Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins & Roman Reigns Discussion Thread

it doesn't matter if rollins can talk or not talk, he's going to be over with the crowd easily and because of it, will be a featured wrestler

Hawkins, Barreta, and Ryder can SAVE the WWE
