Meltzer, Kenny and The Bucks behaving like marks/geeks on twitter....

I've had a lot of their tweets flood my TL, a good chunk of Kenny's stuff seems like a work but then there's the rest where he brings up Meltzer's star ratings which only makes you cringe. We know you're one of the top two in the world Kenny, there's no need for you to bring up someones opinion to prove it... you're not a mark, you're a wrestler...

Then there's Meltzer who tweets stuff like this and is daily getting gotten to by WWE marks... and you see responses like this from him..



Tweet on Rollins which came off snobby after the Ibushi tweet.










Best sports entertainers in Reseda


Kenny



Possibly in character




Probably in character




Jericho with the sick burn


Kenny's likes...









Still love Kenny, but he needs to tone it down on social media and for the love of god drop the Meltzer love/rating shit. It makes him look a huge mark/geek. This is shit fans talk about not the wrestlers. Do you think the likes of Cena, AJ, Reigns etc. are talking about Meltzer ratings or even acknowledging Meltzer as much as him or the Bucks for validation... Let your work speak for itself... which it does..

Young Bucks




Could be working, but difficult to say with the way they've reacted on SM before.




Possible work






There were a few other cringey tweets where The Bucks expressed they were pissed about the cease and desist which seemed to have been deleted.

Love Kenny and respect Meltzer's work for the industry, but it's hard to ignore shit like this when it pops up so frequently in your timeline.

I hate Roman Reigns, but he holds himself far better than all of them online although there have been a few occasions where he has made a fool himself, within the confines of kayfabe though.

There's such a thing as forcing your opinion on others and showing rather than telling how great you are.

I love Kenny but you can't deny that's cringey af....

There's no reason for him to respond to his haters or push Meltzer's opinion as hard as they do.

I cringed when Ricochet brought up getting his first 5* match on twitter and even changed his header to 5*...

Re: Meltzer, Kenny and The Bucks behaving like marks/geeks on twitter....

Following Meltzer on twitter is great fun. I don't care for gossip, his star ratings or podcasts/journals. But his twitter game is superb. Fights the good fight and always has the best retort for someone going in over their head.

With the Bucks and Omega, bit harder. Omega has it spot-on that people want him there but give him shit because he isn't. I can't tell which of the Young Bucks is a mark but one of them. The other one is generally sound. I think what hurts Omega on twitter is that he doesn't know how to retort to Jericho's stuff.

But alas, people gotta accept this is the business of today and of the future. Social media wars. Don't work yourself into a shoot thinking you are above it. If they are getting people to give them a try through social media, that's business at work. And everyone needs to do what they can to help their social media profile.

That's the thing, why the fuck would you put Meltzer on a pedestal and use his ratings to prove you're the best (shouldn't really bring it up, but when you do keep it in character). In kayfabe the best is the one who wins the most matches, wins titles and headlines shows. Why on earth is star ratings relevant to wrestlers? You're essentially breaking character to bring them up.

Jericho's response really was perfect to the star ratings. No idea how you come back from that

As of October 2017, if you are a Kenny Omega fan, the guy that has merch that says 'The Best Bout Machine', the guy that made his big jump in popularity in North America by the help of Dave Meltzer's (and his rating system) endorsements; you have to accept this tweets and all. Its stupid but its also Kenny's selling point. He is supposed to be the best in ring performer in the biz. He needs those dem STARZ. Yeah he is mark. He has been a mark for more than 10 years now. Every single wrestler that done it this long and this much is mark in todays world. If they were not, they would have changed careers long time ago.

As someone who enjoys watching anime, I like his anime villain character work. It's only really his stuff on social media and the odd Meltzer reference he has made on TV that has me thinking "Okay...".

I remember Kenny bringing up Meltzer's ratings in one the build up shows for his match against Sanada, he said something along the lines of being pissed if Sanada affected his average Meltzer star rating. Like, shouldn't he be wanting to beat Sanada quickly? Why bring them up and give publicity to Dave...

As for flip flopping, I'm not a blind mark and can call cringey stuff like this out or take kayfabe lines without being triggered. Jinder called AJ a loser, and tbf to Jinder he had a point

AJ has been losing a lot.

Kenny Omega has said in interviews that he doesn't wrestle for Dave Meltzer, he wrestles for the fans. So he doesn't care about star ratings.

But he definitely loves to bring em up whenever he is arguing with people on Twitter. Its definitely a selling point for him so Im sure hes gonna make the most of it.

Dave Meltzer must feel so important by all this

A guy who has never competed in an actual match himself is considered the authority on rating wrestling matches
