Post a wrestler/gimmick/company/match stipulation/etc that others like but you just don't get. Other posters will post youtube links etc to try to enlighten you. DO NOT POST A NEW REQUEST WITHOUT ANSWERING THE ONE ABOVE YOU.

I'll start us off.

Make me like...

Daniel Bryan.

Daniel Bryan, while looking like a dope who has no business in a wrestling ring, is a throwback to the era of Bret Hart-like ring work and selling. He sells so well, you think he's ACTUALLY been injured, and he is buttery smooth in the ring when transitioning from move-to-move or spot-to-spot or segment-to-segment. He just GETS in-ring psychology. He knows that matches are supposed to make a viewer FEEL.

He also is wonderfully charismatic, and can really rile up a crowd into either feverently supporting him or trying to get him to shut up.

He gave us maybe the most fun, interactive gimmick/catch phrase of all time?

And he seems like a truly great dude. He is a dedicated family man, he is honored that fans care as much as they do about his work, and all he wants in life is to make people happy and enjoy watching him work.

So that's why you should like Daniel Bryan.

(I'm at work, or I'd post some videos. I will later)




Okay, for me: I never got the godlike adoration that Arn Anderson gets. He's a decent #2 sidekick guy and tag worker, but to hear the Internet go on about him, he should have been a multiple time world champ. I don't DISLIKE him, but I think he's insanely overrated and miscalculated in his historical significance. Make me like him on the level others do!

I'm probably the biggest AA mark on the board,  and aside from his ridiculously good promos (which I can post when I get home), I always have a hard time explaining why. He's just a super solid worker and usually did a fantastic job of just coming out every night and beating people up.

I'll post some stuff later

AAs awesome, but yeah its hard to add to what you just said.

I loved his name growing up, though. Just being called 'Double A Arn Anderson' made him seem cool.
My favorite short lived tag team was him & Larry Zybisko.
Their catch phrase 'they know wrestling from A to Z' was bad ass.

Thought this would be a more active thread.

Okay, anyway. If -anyone- could make like (ugh) brock lesnar, i would srsly mail them $1,000.000.

Impossible. You either think that stuff is entertaining, or you are a stick in the mud.  ;D

But it's too subjective. I think it's fun, but if someone else says they don't like it, I can 100% understand why. I think it's supposed to be divisive.

YOU YOURSELF ARE THE MUDSTICK!


but yeah, you're probably right

It might be helping to salvage Bray Wyatt's career.

Honestly before his stuff with Matt he was basically going around in circles and redoing lamer versions of things previously shown.

Yeah, I'm actually interested in a face Wyatt.

Other reasons:

He's just different from everything else in the WWE right now. Heck, he's an actual character. How many characters do we really have in the WWE right now?

But if you guys want a real challenge... make me like Jinder Mahal.

There is one thing I liked that Brock did.

Okay Brock's on a rampage and he stomps near the announcer's table while Booker T is going on with his usual stuff--and then Brock suddenly overturns the table and knocks everyone over.

Booker T: WWWHHHOOOOAAAA


Extra funny the kept the table turned over the rest of the show...I like to believe because if they fixed it, they were worried Brock would come back. :)

The fact that he Broke The Streak gives him a permanent level of credibility that nobody else in wrestling can match, even after eating a couple of losses since then. Basically, Lesnar now occupies this permanent state of "Beating him in a huge deal", which, in the era of 50/50 booking (and "beating Cena, but losing 3 rematches"), is nearly impossible to match.

Seeing as the streak shouldnt have been broken (UT should've retired after the match w. HHH), and certainly not by a guy who didnt need the rub in any way shape or form, yeah, you just reminded me of one of the many reasins i DONT like lesnar! :P
