Daniel Bryan. It still horrifies me just how he got to where he did. I would have released the tramp a long time ago.

Re: Popular wrestlers that you never warmed up to?

- Paige. Don't really have much else to add but I was never a fan. Hotshotted the title for a flat run that has little to no standout moments and was never wowed by her promo or in ring abilities. I recall her "This is my house," more than I do any of her notable matches or promos.

Oh, well, there was her promo on Charlotte's deceased brother.


- Seth Rollins '14 - mid '16. Still not completely sold on him as a main event talent but he's shown flashes. I have no idea wtf they're doing with his character currently, though. Not turning him in a double turn against Reigns when he returned because fans were going to love their lord and savior Joe Anoa'i will forever go down in history as one of the biggest blown opportunities of all time, and for no reason other than bullheaded pride & spite.

Adam Cole. I don't get it. I keep hearing how much WWE wants him and I'm like..Why? He looks like a manlet. He cuts a solid promo, but like..I just don't understand the hype.

Jeff Fucking Hardy.
Point out ONE good promo he ever cut. Point out ONE good match he's ever had that didn't involve infantile stunts and high-spots. And you know what really gets me? The guy's a fucking hick. He's a yokel. A fucking hillbilly who LITERALLY lived in a trailer. Yet he kept insisting on doing all these stupid edgy gimmicks where he was meant to be this "tortured soul" or whatever the fuck - but as soon as he opened his mouth, it all fell apart because he sounded like the rapists from Deliverance.
The guy is a carny, he's a hack, he has no talent, and his fans can't even justify why they like him.

Re: Popular wrestlers that you never warmed up to?

There were/is quite a few.
SCSA. I personally found his matches very formulaic, 99% of them spilled outside the ring/into the audience.
And more recently Edge. I liked him in E & C, but I never saw what´s great in him as a singles competitor, and 11 title reigns is just laughable.
And I won´t even go the Ellsworth or Reigns route -those are way too obvious.

Punk.

Sloppy in the ring (he gets a pass but Cena gets ripped for this constantly?). The dude was botching his own finisher constantly for his last few years.

Good mic worker heavily inflated by them letting him shoot but people were putting him on GOAT mic worker lists...

Which brings me to his ridiculous marks souring me on him further.

No doubt the guy was good overall, just never got him as a main-eventer and I'm not a an of "voice of the IWC" character. His best work was with the SES on Smackdown before his major move up the card.



I was never into Foley at the time but going back now, I find him very underrated. Sure he wasn't a technician but the guy put on great matches and his heel run as mankind was fantastic.
