Re: What's so good about Magnus?

His reaction in these UK shows has been off the charts. It will be interesting to see how the US crowd reacts when TNA go on the road come March..

Re: What's so good about Magnus?

He's good but just hasn't quite found out whether he is a natural face or heel. I'm going to say face, as he has a charm with the audience and looks like Hugh Jackman.

Re: What's so good about Magnus?

I can't speak for anyone else but I think he has a good look, is good on the mic, and servicable in the ring. He has what I feel is all the tools to be a future World champion. Plus it would be interesting to see a British guy as a face World champion in an American company. But that's in the future. Right now there's alot of guys who I would like to see win the World title before him like Daniels, Bully Ray, AJ Styles, Samoa Joe, and Aries again.

I don't wanna get into a discussion of other men's bodies but I think Dolph Ziggler, John Morrison, Austin Aries, and Bobby Roode just to name a few, all are in better shape.

In terms of body frame and the basic shape of his build. The shape of those guys build just doesn't compare, they just weren't born with such a nice long idyllic body frame. I'm not talking about muscle size or definition or how lean they might be.

Agreed.

He needs a better gimmick.

Re: What's so good about Magnus?

Dude turned face, getting dat IWC heat



The reason why we don't get fresh ideas and promotions rising in American Pro Wrestling is because the majority of the community is happy with the same old shit and will reject any chance of change. There is a risk in doing new things, 9 times out of 10, it leads to 50+ pages of bitching and moaning. While business gets turned into a dictatorship and more and more out of touch. Support the indies, support New Pro Wrestling.

daniels- pusing 40, clearly not in his prime, missed the boat YEARS AGO
KAZ- same thing
Joe- he had his star in the sun and it got snuffed out

out with the old in with the new, that should be the tna motto

Re: What's so good about Magnus?

Theres nothing good about him

People are brainwashed by WWE's "'mentality" and what they think stars are, they decided that MAGNUS was the biggest potential star TNA had. He sucks, Doug Williams is miles better.

Re: What's so good about Magnus?

Magnus is pretty much a full package. Mic Skills, look, wrestling skills, he has it all. And he's young, so TNA clean up his gimmick, find a nice theme and an entrance rotine, get him a better finisher and a catchphrase and push him to the moon.

THEREVOLUTION
