I would also call Kenny Omega the first true pseudo-intellectual in wrestling history. Great at doing things that seem smart but aren't intuitive and don't stand up to thinking about them outside of their vacuum. The Rainmaker spot from Dominion is one. Why wouldn't he just deadweight himself rather than have Okada bring him to his feet and THEN cause Okada to miss by "collapsing"?

And Kenny's the one overthinking things? Ok lol

In Topic: Have you ever cried watching wrestling?

Last time was Bayley vs. Sasha at Summerslam

...but I'm the kind of guy to start crying when I see other people cry, and they started pulling tear jobs after 30 minute ironman matches, and had to cut that out. Enough was enough. But on the real I thought Bayley/Sasha was pretty transcendent stuff for a whole bunch of reasons. The allergies were on high alert


In Topic: AJ Styles

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
