Part Timers and Legends help full time wrestlers

I hated the part timer thing but there is something I heard in E&C podcast that me change the way I'm thinking about it.

Edge mentioned that during his career when he knew that a legend or mega star to return that will get the attention from fans around the world.

He tries to improve and give everything he can because he know there will be more fans around the world will watch him and will know what he can do.

AJ Styles said in a interview that Goldberg VS Lesner main event at Mania will give him a chance to get fans like and know him because there will be attention to the event.

What do you think about this?

Well it seems like your talking about getting casual fan attention, any hardcore or semi hardcore wrestling fan knows all the guys and gals on the roster so it doesnt really help in that aspect. Plus this is wrestlemania guys dont need any more motivation to up there game

Edge probably was refering to hulk hogan when edge was in a tag match with him on a ppv

I highly doubt goldberg has helped any fulltime improve, it didnt help kevin owens in fact he came off weak as which summed up his title run unfortunately

Now as far as guys like y2j helping the other guys out then yes part timers and legends generally are full of advice and really try to help, just look at hhh his had tons of influence on guys gimmicks and constantly guves out advice to the guys.

Re: Part Timers and Legends help full time wrestlers

In the case of this years Royal Rumble then yes the part timers helped. They brought in extra buys and made the rumble unpredictable. Undertaker was even put in a program with Reigns and he will do the job at Wrestlemania. Unfortunately Lesnar and Goldberg aren't being used to build up talent which is a waste.

In Daniel Bryan we trust!!!

Re: Part Timers and Legends help full time wrestlers

Sure if an older star appears and pops the ratings, there are more eyes on you and the product.

Of course what those viewers then see is the old star running riot over everybody on the roster, making the current talent look like incompetent oafs, and then never return.

Re: Part Timers and Legends help full time wrestlers

Well, yeah...Edge is right...AJ Styles' remarks are also dead on.

Part-timers fill a role, and an important role at that. A lot of eyes are on WWE/Wrestlemania right now. If you have a match go out there and be a fuckin' star. Make a name for yourself. Brock Lesnar, Bill Goldberg, Undertaker, etc., bring even more eyes to the product; not just WM, but ESPN, FS1, etc. It gives an opportunity for you to shine. If you're a star, well, shine! Even if you don't have the backing of the WWE machine, if you're that good, go into business for yourself and make your mark. Fuck the script. Fuck the agent that helped put the match together. If you think yourself a star what better time to try and make yourself into a star than WM season?

Man up and make yourself a household name. If you fail, well, you're probably fired, which means you weren't good enough anyways. If you succeed, however, you'll get the admiration of your peers and, more importantly, your superiors. Is it easy? Nope. Still, if you fancy yourself a star, take a shot on yourself. This is the best time of year to do it, after all.

Re: Part Timers and Legends help full time wrestlers

Part timers helping to elevate full time, younger talent can be a good thing. But when the main event of Wrestlemania involves two part timers like Goldberg and Lesnar for the title...I see why people are upset with it.

Re: Part Timers and Legends help full time wrestlers

More competition means a better show for the fans. I get the impression that a lot of wrestlers are resting on their laurels and would rather bitch about part timers "stealing their spot" rather than fighting with them for said spot.

I remember hearing a Kevin Owens interview where he but the lockerroom on blast and said with the exception of Cena and himself everyone takes off after their match yet still all expect to be top guys in the company.

Re: Part Timers and Legends help full time wrestlers

Duh. Of course they say that. That´s like a hot topless girl in your lap asking you, whether she´s hotter than Scarlett Johannson. The answer is always YES.
