I agree whole heartily about the WWE's brainwashing, hence people thinking Randy Orton is some great star, I do think Magnus has potential though but he still needs a lot of work and the proper build-up.


ENTERTAINMENT!

Re: What's so good about Magnus?

Marketable face, does a load of work over here in the UK, recognisable from being on gladiators, charismatic as hell and only going to get better. When you consider who he's tagged with it's not a huge surprise and from interviews he's done he seems to have a real passion for wrestling. The "look" isn't everything but it sure doesn't hurt to have it. Main event push? Not yet, he's only been a singles guy since BFG. But this time next year I don't see why not.

Sure Doug is but Dougs a really good wrestler who tagged w/ Magnus to teach him some stuff which clearly worked. When you consider how far he's come and that he's only 26 there's really a whole lot of good untapped there. He's been working with Doug, Nigel & Joe, all of whom probably taught him a thing or two. You only need to watch his Turning Point match with Joe to see that he really gets how to work a match these days.

Plus Doug's down as a trainer in OVW which is great. I think he's actually the OVW champ so it's not like you can't watch him wrestle any more.

Re: What's so good about Magnus?

Whenever I see the guy in action I feel that he's "almost there". He just needs a lot more time, maybe a TV title run, some decent booking, and he could be a main player for a long time to come.


Call Kenny Loggins. Cause you're in the Danger Zone.

I will say I think he possibly has the tools to be possibly something big.people are full of it if they think he has it now.we have no indication that he has it all or is popular.he has shown nothing breakthrough.he just gave a few interviews that got the icw wl worked up and want to see him be used.

So like I said.he may have something waiting to shine but his wrestling is no better then others.mic skill is avarage. If anything I think hes yet to find his thing.you can tell feom his promos he doesant know it yet.its like austin aries.he was always a great wrestler.I dont think that entire edge came until later.so leta hope magnus finds his thing and gets air time to show and find it.

Re: What's so good about Magnus?

Dude has the look of a top tier maineventer, the best physique in all of wrestling (only Rock compares, maybe Roman Reigns but hard to tell with his attire lol), has the charisma to go with it, has great mic skills, very athletic for his size, can wrestle and sell. Pretty much the total package from all sides. Once he gets a character that defines him he'll be top face of the company material with ease.

Marks for Austin Aries/D Bryan crew

Creams himself over Lesnars Entrance crew

Prefers watching wrestling intoxicated crew

Scott Steiner is the real GOAT crew

WF metal crew

Re: What's so good about Magnus?

Already been said, but he's good as a face or heel, good on the mic, got a good look and can work. TNA needs to start pushing this guy properly asap, as he's likely going to be the future of the company.
