Reactions to the List: 50-26

You care so little that you respond every time he does it.

 

Just to point out the constant trolling. But I don't care about arguing with this troll. I couldn't care less.

One major change from 2006 to 2016 is that in 2006 the default position was still largely to bow to all things Japan. Perhaps it's swung too far in the other direction, perhaps not, but it's a change

Anyone that voted for Jose Lothario is a good upstanding citizen of the board imo.

Thanks for reminding me that Akira Hokuto used a cheesy synth-ladden latin pop song for a music theme ! I missed hearing that.

 

Hey, Hansen is mostly an AJ guy. ;)

 

But yeah. I'm betting on Flair.

I can imagine Grimmas tapping his figers and laughing at all of us heathens as we discuss and whine and speculate on who's number one and number 10. The Force is with him.

Can someone give me their argument for having Vader over Aja Kong on their list? I understand why Vader is going to finish higher, but I'd love to hear from someone who ranked both and decided that Vader was better.

 

Sure, I voted Vader higher because his offense looked better, he bumped better, he had more great matches (though Aja had many) and his style transferred effectively to so many different settings. People have long said Aja was a better Vader, but I still think Vader is a better Vader, despite the fact I have great respect for her and she was my highest ranking female. If you find her work more aesthetically pleasing, I can't really argue with you. But I don't.

Seems like just a bunch of hand wringing to me when I bet at least half of the top 10 is going to be Japanese guys (or in the case of Hansen a guy whose case is made off of his work in Japan)

Right, we really have no evidence that voting has swung against All Japan or the elite New Japan guys. Again, the real theme seems to be anti-niche.

We'll see as the reveals continue, but the group that seems to have benefited is 80s JCP guys.

I'm most satisfied with Dandy, Satanico, & Rose still hanging in there. I thought there was a chance they'd drop before #50.

And 80s territory guys would be one of the major groups to benefit from expanded access & availability of footage.

When Too Cold Scorpio and Scott Steiner are called the greatest ever and Brian Pillman gets a top 3 vote, Brock Lesnar can claim to be Flair, Misawa and Thesz rolled up in one as far as I'm concerned.

That Brock #2 vote needs to be addressed. That's high to put it lightly.

What do you recommend we do about it?

 

Expose the voter. :)

 

I'd just like to hear an argument for why someone ranked Brock Lesnar the #2 greatest wrestler of all-time. I'm curious.

Force them to watch shoot style and joshi Clockwork Orange style until they realize the error of their ways.
