Re: Adam Cole & Matt Riddle = STARS

They're literally the furthest things from being stars. And that match was an absolute fucking mess, just a bunch of mindless high spots

You don't know what the word literally means.

No one here is saying they have to recreate Flair vs. Steamboat, just stop insulting our intelligence. Thats all. Fuck, I watch NJPW and enjoy Ospreay matches. Im not against crazy high flying shit. But these guys just take it to a level of dumb i cant accept, no matter how " bullshit" you think it is.

He's not really wrong. They're on NXT performing in front of a very niche crowd. No matter how much people will talk up NXT, it's still developmental and irrelevant in the grand scheme of things. When they hit the main roster is when we will see if they are true stars, but many NXT guys have flopped on the main roster. Anyone can get over in Full Sail and performing a bunch of flashy moves with no selling and psychology to get pops from the virgins in the crowd is not a true reflection of overness. It's a mockery of the wrestling business.

Saying they're literally the furthest thing from being stars is objectively, indefensibly wrong. It's silly hyperbole and it's not correct. Actually THINK about the sentence for half a second. Picture in your mind the worst least over wrestlers of all time.

If you don't like them and you do not think they'll be big stars on the main roster, fine. Express that. Explain why. Don't abuse the word literally and say stupid shit that you don't actually mean to say.

Me after Matt Riddle lost.





Hope he moves up to the main roster then.

Need to see Riddle Vs Joe, Lashley, Brock, Daniel Bryan, etc.

Re: Adam Cole & Matt Riddle = STARS

Well a ''star'' in the wrestling business is someone who is successful. Most wrestlers were never stars. So when you consider that point and the reality that they're still in developmental performing in front of highly niche crowds and have not got a true taste of being on the main roster yet, the statement is not that wrong. They could be stars in the future, but right now they're nobodies.

Re: Adam Cole & Matt Riddle = STARS

Sure dude. Takeover crowds going apeshit for them over and over and over, packed buildings of tens of thousands. But keep moving the goalposts to fit your world view. That's obviously important for you that they're considered non-entities, so whatever.

They draw less than 1 mil viewers on USA and with the WWE brand behind them. They're absolute nobodies.
