If that's the same guy, he obviously needs to go back into the oven... he's still a little underdone.
I just saw that guy when RAW was here in San Diego.... He did a dark match or a HeAT match, and I didn't know who he was at the time. But you may be right- he could be a little too green. In this case, it looked like both his and Styles' fault. Is that is one of Style's finishers- could he not tell that the guy is "strapped in" too low? Anyhow, I'm glad the kid wasn't seriously hurt.
I was there....When Chris Jericho beat Austin and Rock in the same night to become the first ever Undisputed Champion! (And for the incredible Eddie/ Edge "no DQ"!!!)
Lemme add my $.02, since frankly, I've seen more Kazarian matches than most, if not all of you. (I've been watching him since 1999)
The problem was that A.J. caught him too low, and wasn't apparently intending to adjust him. Frankie bent his neck in, because it would better protect him rather than leaving his head straight down. If you notice, Frankie's head is already touching the ground before AJ does the move. If he'd kept his neck straight, it would've compressed his spine, and could've caused him a whole world of troubles.
A blown spot like that, is frankly the fault of both of them.
Frankie was sore after the match, but had no lasting damage. He got it checked out when he returned to Cali, and nothing was broken or sprained. He even wrestled again on TNA this week. He is NOT a sloppy worker.
There's a reason that wrestlers build up their neck strength. You just saw why.
He still needs a manager, though. Then again, when you're trained on promos by the American Gladiator who was the worst on the mic, well...
There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened. - The Restaurant at the End of the Universe
I don't think Orton is quite ME level yet, but he's getting there. He still needs to work on his "Ring Presence", because you just don't get the feeling that something big is going to happen when he gets in the ring.
