A top 10? Lmao. He's good on the mic, but he's not in the top 10. I'm all for pushing some of these guys and let them show what they can do. If they can't cut it then make way for someone else. But to outright dismiss some of these guys just because they're not 6ft 5 is ridiculous. Guys like Ciampa are a pretty damn good promo if given the opportunity.

His workrate in 2000 and first half of 2001 was pretty damn good actually. Arguably his greatest spell as a talent up until his unfortunate injury.

Top 10 promo of all time though? lol I want what you’re smoking.
It still doesn't change that he was at his very best/most interest as a performer was when he was a juvenile asshat or when he was a sadistic asshole. His stuff in 2000 wasn't good because he was having 35 minute technical wrestling matches. It was things like the street fight at the Rumble with Cactus the Iron Man with Rock at Judgment Day, and the triple threat with Angle and Rock at Summer Slam things that either started out as absolute chaos or became chaotic where he thrived.

Triple h seems to have major fucking issues. Booked an utter dog shit of a show repelling casual. Triple h is a strange mother fucker for how he speaks he seems like he has a clue.

But when you watch him book he is clueless. It's mind boggling. When aew fans scream that there is too much wrestling and aew has less then you know we are fucked.

Triple h is going to kill the product.

It was actual smart booking by way of those 2 triple threats...

Put people in the ring that are going to make your winners look good against.

In addition you have the interleaved story of Ciampa and Miz in 2 of those matches. If Ali isn't in the match you don't get the Styles Clash.

CIampa's a good opponent for Lashley and will make Lashley look good. I point to his match with Joe during Joe's run as an example. He may not be big. But he's violent.

I mean who the fuck wants to see Lashley vs Omos again? Anyone?

Here's a hint: it wasn't your workrate, bitch. Why does he insist on pushing all these midgets with no personality or mic skills? Hunter was a top 10 promo of all time and one of the most despised heels ever. That's what made him a star. How the hell did this man became such a mark for indie dweebs.
Are you asking or answering yourself?
Can’t you tell all of them using the same shtick? The problem with the show today is that the crowd is wack probably on weed or some shit - swear to you if I was on a show I would make them pussies cry until they escort me out of the arena.

I get what you are saying, but Triple H got over because of his looks not his mic work.

Him opening Raw with 20 minute promos was a snooze and turned me on to smackdown more and more.
And here I thought that it was because of the clique, banging bosse's daughter and marrying billion dollar princess in 03 that made him a super H he is today. Silly me. It was all so "real to me damnit". :unsure::whistle:;)

Either way we got lucky that we had The Rock come out each night and entertain The People with "the people struddle" all the while using Stephanies breasts as flowtation device...

You used to love fun Vince...we miss the fun:rolleyes::cautious:

Veer, Omos, Ezekiel, ride the bench.

Ciampa and Mustafa Ali. You're in.
Not a fan of Mustafa Ali's existence, and Ciampa should be a low-midcarder for life if he's not the seasoned NXT veteran. But you have to admit Veer is still green and needs something more to him than being Indian Rusev, and Omos is total shit.
