Originally posted by darkmatcherSorry NHS, you may have some good points, but I don't think I can find it in me to hate him. Tons of guys in the business are guilty of doing the kinds of trashy things he's accused of doing, and get more respect. Most pro-wrestlers have very bad reputations. At the same time, some do learn their lesson(even if the hard way).
I don't know, maybe I'm too blinded by my silly puppy love, but I like him. I like his wit and laid back personality.
Originally posted by darkmatcherI love how some fans who hate certain wrestling characters will do all they can to hold it against the real person. Very mature
I just wanted to put the original quote here, just for shits and giggles.
I love when people like/hate the real person because of their character too.
Wrestling exists in the eternal present. What is, has always been, and when it no longer is, it never was. It has no past and no future, and sometimes even today is in question. - Madame Manga
Originally posted by CerebusBeing an asshole myself, I can honestly say that Nash is no bigger an asshole then the rest of us assholes. Are you saying that given the chance, you WOULDN'T get some cute chick a job for giving YOU a job. Whatever
Using Garcia is a stripper as a running gag is no worse the having Rock get her to want his 'strudel'; do you despise Rocky as well? What about Jericho for getting himself over with Stephanie's breast enhancements? Is he just as big an asshole as Nash is.
Talk about apples and oranges. You are comparing a script that everyone was in agreement with to a guy talking trash and going off on his own at someone else expense. You don't see a difference?. It's not like this guy is friends with her, he knows her all of 6 work days, Nash should try go 6 weeks on the road before being placed on the DL before he gets the right to do or say anything concerning a fellow employee... Plus no surprise on who he picked on, not like he's going to pick on someone who has a boyfriend on the roster who might confront him, or even a girl with a certain amount of star power who can confront him herself. He does what all prick bully's do, pick on someone who can't really fight back.
I agree when you say if person is so talented it might override them being a jerk. An example is HBK, from all account was a total jerk in the mid 90s but I can't deny he was an amazing all around performer... But for Nash especially in the last 7-10 years he hasn't entertained me at all, never thought he was too funny or clever, always seemed like some sad middle aged, 40 year old trying to be hip. And his ringwork is as bad as anyone on that roster IMO. THAT along side with being a jerk makes him one of the most useless people on the roster in my eyes.
It's just my nature, no matter if it's athletes, actors, musicians or wrestlers, if they seem like decent and cool people I tend to dig them more and if someone come off like jerks it would probably effect me liking them but if they are talented jerks, I could still appreciate what they do. But if they hit the double whammy of crap jerks with very little talent then I have no time for.
I always thought Nash was really overrated, he just seems like a leech, he leeched off Shawn in his first WWE stint and failed pretty bad in his year World Title run. He went to WCW and he should thank his lucky stars Hogan jumped to the NWO, because with Nash as the figure head, I think it would have fizzled out in half a year. He leeched off Hogan for a while, came back to the WWE with Hogan and the NWO. While Hogan has had some memorable moments, Nash has been at home leeching off the WWE bankroll and has really done nothing of significance even before his injuries. I always thought Nash thought of himself along even with the industry looked upon him much higher then he ever really is/was... Nash reminds me of an actor, who isn't very good and brings the quality of his movies down and really isn't that great of a box office draw but still gets A-level roles cause there's a perception that he's some sort of star
cause there's limits to our liberties. 'Least I hope and pray that there are, cause those liberal freaks go too far.
I'll crush all opposition to me And I'll make Ted Kennedy pay If he fights back, I'll say that he's gay
That's true, but I've seen some pretty drunk fans at wrestling events over the years...some of them looked like they could do some damage too, unless they were falling over themselves to get to a wrestler.
