i guess i'd just like to comment on my dissatisfaction of hearing about chad collyer's departure from the wwe. the only things that i heard about him were good things, and soon i will see him in action via the ecwa super 8 2002 tournament.

apparently, he was a dean malenko trainee, with a lot of the same skills, plus more youth, and a tad bit more charisma. don't quote me on that last bit, though, as it was previously mentioned in the thread that he had less than deano (if possible). once i receive the tape i can probably give a bit further incite to him... that is, assuming that everybody has not forgotten by then, which is almost guaranteed to happen!


cutting deadweight = good.
cutting collyer = bad.

Collyer was really pretty good, but very much a cruiserweight. The WWE seems more interested in high-flying cruisers than mat-based ones, and Collyer was very much in the Malenko style, even using a Cloverleaf for his finishing maneuver. He doesn't have a ton of charisma, but he's not bad at all. Plus, I went to high school with him, so I have a natural hometown affection for 'im. It kinda sucks that I won't see 'im in the Fed anytime soon.

That sucks about Waterman. When I saw him, he actually looked nothing like Scott Steiner (contrary to what EVERYONE says in the Torch feedback section) and kicked total ass. He teamed with Lesnar that night and I honestly thought he was the better of the two.
In fact, they wrestled Rico and Orton before they were in the big-time. I thought Waterman was better than them all, had more charisma and had a more kick-ass look.
Makes you wonder, huh? I'll never be able to figure out the WWE's talent decisons...I mean, they cut Mr. freakin' Perfect, for crying out loud. [/nostalgia kick]

Agreed, BigDaddyLoco, it did seem odd for JR to bring up Jerry Lynn in his weekly report. Just speculation on my part, of course, but perhaps it was as a favor to Lynn. Check out the following from Lynn, which is currently on the NWA-TNA web site:

Jerry Lynn on the comments made recently by Jim Ross:

“We’ve never had cross words, and we have a very professional relationship. I wouldn’t want any false rumors to come out about my departure from WWE, so I’m glad he cleared it up."

Now, I personally wasn't aware that there was anything about Lynn's departure from WWE that needed to be "cleared up" [though (if I recall correctly) Lynn did appear on WWA's "The Revoloution" before it was officially announced that he was no longer working for WWE]. Anyway, it looks as if both men are treating this matter in a professional, respectful, and business-like manner...which, of course, can make for pretty dull reading. ;-) Anyway, if you're interested, you can Click Here to read Jerry Lynn's comments in their totality.

I'm of the school of thought that they can make anyone a star that they want to, and make the fans believe it by manipulating certain factors (clean wins, making segments important, associating them with bigger names, well produced hype packages, etc.)
