"crappy" The WWF finally stumbles across a style that gets them to the mainstream and this guys calls it "crappy". For an American worker with zero time training or working in Japan, The Rock's pretty damn good. "Good" as in, I'm actually interested in watching his matches and I don't feel like I've wasted my time like I did the last time I watched a HHH or Stone Cold match. Sure, he's not a technical Marvel like Benoit, but when you think about it, how many guys in the WWF are? Add in the fact that he's not half-crippled like Stone Cold or looking more like Scott Steiner every day like HHH, and you have a pretty good wrestler. Oh yeah, and The Rock has yet to cause a gigantic backstage furor with his politicking like a few other "boys" in the back.

Also, yeah, the next 1st time WWF champ will probably be Benoit (Hey, they have those nice backstory conflicts with Jericho, Stone Cold AND HHH, may as well get some use out of it.). Personally, I'd rather see them go with a bit of a swerve and have The Hurricane win the title in a Mulkey-Brothers style fluke win! ;-)



"All born equal unless you're Canadian
Then halfway through decay like Uranium
You define what's death-defying
Get the most out of life or at the least die trying
Are you Evil Knievel jumping a train?
Or running with scissors like Frasier Crane?
Have really good times doing really bad things
‘Cause the show ain't over ‘til the fat lady sings
Like Elton John with his candle in the wind
It's hard to blow out a flame as big as him
But we've all got to Wang Chung with the Grim Reaper
Whether you're Einstein whether you're Beaker
Death is certain so it's definitely worth flirtin'
Don't expect a bright light no just curtains
Life is like a penis most people don't know it
But most people suck so they usually blow it"

I'm not watching Backlash, so I'm not sure how it went. But barring any big surprises, would it be way too premature to say Brock Lesnar? Honestly, probably RVD or Benoit before him, but is it that unbelievable?

The term "good worker" is somewhat of a misnomer depending on what your definition of it is. If you're definition just deals with whoever can execute moves the best or sell every punch like they've been shot out of cannon, than yes, Rock is not very good.

But if your definition includes someone who knows how to time every punch right to get the best effect, someone who knows how to be able to emote to an enormous live crowd and be aware of exactly what to do to bring the crowd into the match, then there is no one better than the Rock.

I've alway wondered at the mentality of people who consider grown men who have to drop eachother on their heads 15 times a match to get a reaction out of the crowd more talented than someone who can make millions of dollars for himself, his employer, and everyone else involved in professional wrestling with a raise of his eyebrow.

Yes it's too premature. The guy hasn't even opened his mouth yet! He could sound just like Michael Jackson for all we know. If big scary-looking dude + high-impact power moves = world champion, such talents as the The Warlord, Ron Reese, & Sid would all champs by now. Hey, wait a minute...

Now I'm sure Lesnar is a better wrestler than these three but come on. We've seen this guy squash jobbers and flex for a month. That's it. Let's see if he can actually wrestle a non-squash match and say three words in a row before we start talking about him as IC champ, much less World Champ. On the other, there's Goldberg.

Smart money would be on RVD and Benoit. My money is on former ECW champ Rhyno.

Ha! When Rhyno is ready to come back, it would be cool if he came out with the old ECW belt to say, "undisputed, my ass!"

Assuming Vince has worked things out with the ECW bankruptcy court so that he controls their intellectual property by that time.

I'm guessing RVD. I mean, I'd like to see Benoit as champion, but it's obvious the wrestling ability isn't the first thing they're looking for. The smarks love him, but I'm not convinced he can really get over with the fans. Also, do they want to put someone at the top of the card who has had a ton of injury problems and will probably continue to have them?

So I think RVD will get there before Benoit. Actually, it wouldn't surprise me if Lesnar got there before Benoit.

Takei that's what I mean when the Rock excels at the WWF wrestling style. The wwf wrestling style has always been light and formulaic for the most part. Its based more on the crowd playing the style and not the style playing the crowd. I have to prefer the latter. And while Rock can get a crowd excited and throw some punches and do the elbow drop, his execution looks rather sloppy at times and he can't sell technical moves to save his life.

Thank you for that. I was about to respond to the "Batista's awesomeness" post and ask how he could forget the best part of the night!
