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

I have no problem with Seth in tags and trio's but as a singles worker, drek for the last two years. He's like the epitome of the "cross fit" style Phil dubbed it. His matches always seem like this disjointed mess and series of movez with no rhyme or reason, and doesn't even come with the added benefit of hitting hard or being charismatic. Omega could at least get something out of stooging or "working a nose" or something ridiculous when it isn't 2.9 sprint sprint sprint. Seth does a couple Phoenix splashes and all is well, but it's not. Sub diva offense (unless it's actually hurting ppl) those gutteral "come on" groans as some kind face comeback offense signal. 1/4th young buck superkicks.

There are things Seth does well, but yeah. Omegas not without fault, but he's better than THAT. I can't think of anything Seth does as galvanizing as...Kenny's running knee, nevermind as an overall worker

The table spot, which was built to beautifully, was the point where I said "oh okay, so he's legitimately willing to die for this. I'm all in" It was Misawa/Kobashi tiger suplex off the ramp levels of, different territory. 
 
 

Yes, I think this is such a perfect comparison. It's an all time "what the fuck" level spot that made it clear Kenny was willing to give literally anything for this night. The build to the spot was genius and the table involvement in the match was even a callback to when Omega put Okada through the table with a One Winged Angel off the apron on one of the Road To Tokyo Dome shows.

Not to make any allusions towards omega and okada being misawa and kobashi level workers, or this being anywhere near the stratosphere of their feud. This probably the first time omega has touched anything even vaguely approaching that level. It was just the first thing that popped into my head regarding generally straight worked matches with insane suicidal level bumping
