He's beyond horrible, brother. HBK and the cancer fanbase of NXT have broken his brain, and now we have to suffer through his bullshit. My one glimmer of hope is waiting to see what Vince does to him when he calls him up
You might get a good laugh out of that. Unfortunately, Cole on the other hand is gonna be Seth Rollins.

Re: Cole and Gargano suck

I'm glad that others share my view on the match. I need a kernel of realism to really be invested in a match. If everyone kicks out at two repeatedly, where is the suspense? Can't wait for Super Johnny to get on the main roster and be pinned by one Superman Punch or spear, a Klaymore, or a stunner because this crap will not fly against the big boys.

It's a company wide problem for big matches, it's worse in NXT as there's more morons there who like this shit and eat it up. They truly believe it's the greatest thing to happen in pro wrestling when it's completely fucking stupid to people watching at home.

Re: Cole and Gargano suck

I don't think there's any question these type of matches are overcooked these days. They've overstayed their welcome. I mean, you wouldn't know that watching Takeover as the fans that attend these shows are still going batshit crazy during these matches, but yeah.

I will say this, though. I'll still take a match of this ilk (as much as I've grown tired with them) over the garbage you'll see on the main roster with a million punches, clotheslines, and whatever the fuck else on Monday and Tuesday nights every week.

But other than that, change it up. AND ENOUGH WITH THE 2/3 FALLS GARBAGE. ENOUGH. ONE FALL IS FINE.

I wouldn't, at least it's more believable than that garbage...

Not that the main roster work is special, but still more immersive than 2K finisher/big move spam.

The company needs a look at changing things up and letting their wrestlers have their own match/distinct style. Just compare Brock's unique match structure to everyone elses.. Everyone wrestles with the same match formula and distinct styles are non existent, just generic WWE formulas slightly tailored (movez) to the individuals involved in the match. Eventually it all becomes the same and you can see it for what it is.

DB's surfboard is literally his opponent waiting there cooperating while he locks the legs and gives him the arms. Asuka's pop up knee looks like her opponents jump to just get hit with a knee. And hell no I'm not saying Cole/Gargano are at the level of a daniel bryan in terms of workrate, I'm just saying there's always something in nearly every wrestling match that looks choreographed or like the two are "helping each other" as you put it. That is unless you watch shoot style matches like Suzuki v. Barnett.

I mean, you can't have these type of matches every week on weekly TV as the wrestlers' bodies would be done in a month. But a match like that once every 3 months (Takeovers) versus the same, old boring crap EVERY week. I think it's the fact that it's every week and most of them don't ever change it up.

He kicked out of a Canadian Destroyer off a ladder...

I almost want to see this whole match just to laugh at how much I hate it.
