Re: Weird Feelings of Wrestling

This is the weirdest feeling of them all, but i was recently watching raw with my cousin (he followed with me until the benoit tragedy, then he watched like one or two matches a year until now) and we both agreed that there is something "wrong" , something "off" in the modern way of fighting.

It's something that's hard to explain, but i'll try: there's lack of "weight" and "impact" in the actual wrestling. It's like they're faster and more agile than before, but when it's time to connect with a moves (standard kick and punches, lariats or trows/grapples ecc...), there's no "gravity" in the move they perform.

My cousin talked about "it's like they go superfast before, and slow down and go "soft" during the actual impact"
I tought it was more a case of not being able to sell the shot well, both in face and body language

But we both agreed that the only guys that still feels like they're actually connecting the moves in the most painfull way are hhh, lesnars, goldberg, rocky and partially cena.

It is just a weird feeling or there's some thruth?

JBL: in his own words


"You can knock me on my ass but I will come back and I will be successful. Come Hell, come high water. Take your best shot, America. John Bradshaw Layfield is right here and I won't back up from anybody. And if you don't like it, you can go to Hell"

"Everybody loves free speech until you use free speech"

"Well at the Great American Bash, I'm gonna go one step further. I am going to become WWE Champion for one reason, and that is to shove it down your throats. Well Eddie, if I have to destroy myself to destroy you, then by God in Heaven, by everything holy, that is what I will do. Nobody, NOBODY can stop me from becoming WWE champion and taking my date with destiny"

I was YouTube surfing the other night and came across some Scott Steiner footage. One thing that stood out to me was when he slammed someone, it looked like he DGAF about their health, he literally tried to slam them hard to shoot hurt them.

Today's wrestlers work more days per year and consequently look like they're trying to protect each other. The slams are TOO perfect. The moves are flawlessly executed and the landing is exactly the same nearly every time.

Plus a lot of today's guys were trained by the same place, so they all take bumps the same way.

+ variability of how moves are given
+ power of giving moves
- protecting each other
- flawlessly executing the same moves when trained at the same place as everyone else

It's not supposed to look choreographed and perfect. Sometimes I see botches and it's refreshing because the commentators usually say "he was trying to counter that one". There should be more uncertainty so it doesn't look like a video game. But this comes at the cost of the amount of punishment the talent needs to go, unfortunately.
