I write things sometimes. Always Wrestling related, obviously.

Another old head complaining. YAWWWWWWWWWWWWWWNNNNNNNNNN
This is why i stopped listening to old folks... they’re so close minded and think if things arent done the exact same way they did them back in the day then its wrong. Whats more ridiculous is younger people who dont see the obvious BS that most old people spit out and agree with it

Re: Booker T: Matt Riddle Needs to Improve

I don't think there's anything to worry about inring wise, his attitude could use some work though.He could end up Lio Rush'd.

Yea we weren't talking about all time, just people who were wrestling at the same time as prime Book.

Shilling for Xia Li, Aliyah, Bianca Belair and Rhea Ripley

Does Booker T have a match w/ as compelling in-ring story being told as in Riddle's Takeover match vs. Dream? I agree that Riddle sometimes goes a little bit too much into the generic shitty indy style, but he can also tell stories for sure.

Re: Booker T: Matt Riddle Needs to Improve

Matts technique has never been in question fuck his got my favorite last man standing match ever. Hell only LMS match ever but the rest he does need to improve on. His charismatic as fuck but his promos are hit or miss for me. And as yaffa and mc said he does get to indyriffic sometimes.

Re: Booker T: Matt Riddle Needs to Improve

Painfully clear Booker is pissed about what Riddle said against Goldberg. Someone else suggested Booker probably hasn't seen a Riddle batch which I believe is the case. It's ok to rag and talk shit on someone even you're a two time HOF, but this is obvious old school mentality.

I said who were the better workers, Austin, Rock and HHH were turning out extremely basic matches that relied on heat to get over, Taker didn't even start having good matches until WM 21, and Jeff Hardy has never had a good match that didn't have a stipulation.
"Working" is doing the most basic stuff and still getting a reaction. It's relying on working the crowd, taking your time. Not jumpy flips every step of the match. This is why Rock & Austin were great workers.

But, I agree Booker T in his prime could have been top 10, maybe 5. Not sure what the other guy was going on about.
