Sell Me on Sanada

Ever since I started lurking here, it became clear that this particular board loves Sanada.

Why?

He's not particularly good in the ring (I mean he's alright tbh but not special), he's already the failed "Future Ace" of 2 Japanese promotions and he failed out of the NJ Dojo. The 2017 G1 was pegged by many to be Sanada's big coming out party and he was gonna show he was a star. Not only did that not happen, he regressed and put in a worse collective performance than the prior year.

Is it just his aesthetic that you guys love?

What am I missing? Please help me understand, wrestling forum.

Re: Sell Me on Sanada

He looks like a star..... and he's decent in-ring but he's never had that "This guy is the next big thing" in any of his matches. I did enjoy his work in TNA though.

Re: Sell Me on Sanada

Good wrestler (His pacing is off but other then that good), looks cool as fuck, he is stoic but not so stoic that he comes across as bland as Nakajima does in NOAH. He does have great potential and a few years with some development and some tag team or open weight title runs, he will be one of the top guys in the company.



All Time Favourites:
Kazuchika Okada, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Eddie Guerrero, Toshiaki Kawada, Daniel Bryan, Kensuke Sasaki & Shinya Hashimoto

I write things sometimes. Always Wrestling related, obviously.

Re: Sell Me on Sanada

hmmm so it is literally just the look? Do people just like the abs + emo look?

If it is all just ahout body/emo look, then maybe people would like Endo Tetsuya at least he can actually wrestle



I mean look at the cum gutters he has wew

IMO there is a more realistic chance Sanada leaves NJPW in a few years than there is he stays and mysteriously turns into a top guy. This guy gets around more than Paige. AJPW, W1, BJW, TNA, NJPW I'd bet he goes back to AJPW in a couple of years and continues to be a journeyman

Mysteriously? I said after some development.

Oh I'm not meaning that as a personal dig, I just don't see the untapped potential others do I guess just because of "the look" (which is funny because "the look" is a WWE meme)

Just Sanada is gonna be 30 and has already failed to be a top player at every stop he's been

30 is usually not old especially in Japan, but it's old when you've been around the major Japanese promotions for 10-years. I just don't see that there is much room for Sanada to develop. It kind of is what he is.

Re: Sell Me on Sanada

He has never really been put in a position to be successful.

Dude hasn't exactly been given the Okada booking. He loses more than he wins. And he has basically lost to every top guy that he ever faced, and wasn't even given more than 15 minutes in the ring to establish himself.

NJPW just doesn't see him as one of their own. Japanese pro wrestling is in many ways a very backwards business. If you haven't been groomed in a promotion's dojo, the chances that you'll be booked on top as a native talent, are very, very low. You're just seen as a utility player, like Sanada. A guy that can be used to put over NJPW's own.

Foreigners are treated differently.

Marvelous
