I really think it's his 2014-present run that catapults him. If we only had the TNA stuff, I'd definitely put him top 100 but probably in the middle or latter half. I feel like his NJPW run to now has been an all-time great run. I have him at number 7 now.

This run he's on is unassailable for sure and the cap on what has been a great career.

But the idea that he's some dramatically different wrestler now (not saying you're saying that) is wrong. All the things he's doing now he's been doing for a decade in a half plus. He hit hard in 2003. He could sell his ass off in '05. He could work the mic at the turn of the decade. He was an even more spectacular spot guy back then. He'd been the total package for quite some time. Call it the stink of TNA/better opponents or what have you, but I think alot people's preconceived notions about him were just flat out wrong. He didn't become "NJPW AJ Styles" or "WWE AJ Styles" he just brought AJ styles to those companies. He'd been dragging good matches out of sub shane mcmahon level workers for eons. Glad he's getting his just due finally.

Why scared? I'm trying to think of one match that would be better with Rollins in it instead of AJ and I'm drawing a blank. Seth become OBSOLETE to me as a worker the minute AJ showed up. Why settle for the cosplay

MVP being Terrell Owens in everything but name was always interesting to me. Gronk's next career has to be throwing Mojo through a barbershop window right?

That excellence of execution stuff really meant nothing to me as a kid. Sounded cool though I would readily admit. But you look at the way Bret hits that piledriver and DDT (poor Raven) and it's hard to argue against. Picture perfect stuff. Can hear the WCW mat when I see those gifs.

This thread is fascinating to read with the benefit of looking back at his work over the last few years.

people were just wrong
