Re: How is Johnny Gargano that good of a wrestler?
Pass. He’s one of these high spot, false finish guys that are killing the business.
Zero character, zero psychology, completely unrealistic and overly choreographed.
The guy is a 180lbs but can withstand a beating that would make Bruce Willis in Die Hard jealous. Adam Cole could have literally pulled out a gun and shot him and he’d kick out at 2.
They are both talented guys but the lack of psychology, selling and common sense just ruin their matches. If you took a drink every time someone threw a superkick or kicked out of a finisher, you’d be drunk off your ass.
Compare that to the NA title match. Velveteen Dream out there selling like a champ, incorporating his character into the match. Strong and Dunne are both Garganos size but they aren’t out there flipping all over the ring. Strong with some really nice looking striking offense. Pete Dunne’s entire moveset is great with the joint manipulation. Plus they incorporated Dunnes attack on the fingers into the psychology of the match by having his opponents not being able to fully utilize moves that require grip strength. When finishers were hit, only a ref stoppage broke the count, no false finish kickoff fest. Fucking excellent.
Hell Baszler vs Yim was a dud but at least they had good psychology selling the arm injury preventing Shayna from using the Kirafuda Clutch.
Tell a goddamn story that makes sense and get people invested in the match, don’t turn it into an overly choreographed gymnastics exhibition. Christ.
Patiently waiting for the Attitude Era to return
