  1. This is a great point. Same for guys cosplaying 90s Kings Road without picking up on how important struggle, transitions and selling were to the style. I'm a huge Shawn Michaels fan but his "steal the show", "best performer", "give people their moneys worth" stuff was one of the worst things to happen to modern wrestling. He had the skills and smarts to generally pull it off but most modern guys simply don't. Instead of "I'm here to win/defend this title" or "I'm here to kill this guy", it's "I'm here to put on a great match". Yes I personally care about match quality, but the wrestlers acting like they do too instead of treating it like a competitive fight sort of defeats the purpose. I think that's one of the biggest reasons for the decline of wrestling match quality in 2010s. Another knock against Shawn's legacy is that shitty superkick trend the seemingly everyone has adopted.

    I agree. 4 Tamura matches made the Top 30, there were 2 Fujiwara shoot-style bouts in the Top 50, lucha did reasonably well, the non usual suspects territory stuff did really well , there was a bunch of pre-80s stuff. There has definitely been a shift and will continue to be.

    Cole is interesting in that he can range from terrific (Eddie, Foley's title wins) to absolute garbage (his heel run, Bryan's WM 30 title win) and be everything in between. Not a GOAT for me but his longevity is impressive.

    Best and Worst WrestleMania Builds

    As noted, the parallels between Austin/Rock II and Becky/Ronda(/Charlotte) are striking. Needless meddling and an inability to leave well enough alone. The more things change, the more they remain the same. Hopefully, they mirror the match quality too.

    If there are matches in the nomination process that seem to meet the nominee criteria, those should be fine too since not everything has been moved.

    Also note: the search feature is a little unreliable. If you used it to find a match and got no results, it doesn't necessarily mean a thread doesn't exist.

    Probably but the process has been a lot more enjoyable and civil than GWE. Reminder: There is approximately one week left to submit a ballot. Submissions will be closed at the end of WrestleMania next Sunday.
  15. Also, Angle might be the worst "way past his prime" wrestler I've ever seen.
