For those who think the "AJ/Joe/Daniels" stuff in TNA is repetetive, so what? What is the negative about excellent matches on every TNA PPV?
There would be no negative if they where having excellent matches every month. The AJ/Joe/Daniels matches during the summer of 2005 where really great, but now everything is predictable. Every match now has TNA trying to make Joe look like the monster, but instead of looking like one they let AJ look really strong but they still have Joe destroying him at the end making all his offense look pointless. Daniels' work in the series of matches with AJ and Joe has been the same character wise, and it's hard to take him seriously when he's made to look like the weak link in the feud.
Everything those three can do with eachother has already been showcased, twice. There is nothing left for any of them to do with eachother they need to move on.
Where is the negative on a guy who works a solid highspot-based style coupled with a fair amount of stiff believable strikes, and sells beatdowns with the best of them?
Because AJ Styles matches are the same, and it gets boring. Every match has AJ and his opponent coming out and having a feeling out process, AJ gains some cotrol, makes a mistake and his opponent taking advantage, then AJ doing one of his extremely predictable spots(Pele kick or Moonsault DDT, take your pick), then the match goes to a back and forth battle with AJ doing his tope con hilo when his opponent goes to the outside, and then they go back to going at it and somehow AJ gets his finish for th win.
AJ's selling of beatdowns is also a problem. A lot of times AJ makes his opponents look stronger than usual, but then AJ comes back and makes their offense look less effective and just comes back with stiff strikes. It doesn't matter what type of situtation AJ is in, the same forumla is used in every match of his.
His signature spots are also really contrived and add nothing to matches other than getting the TNA marks to pop. The moonsault DDT is so easy to call out. A lot of the ways he gets a person in a Styles Clash are so dumb also. When he does that one pinning thing and purposly jumps up and rolls backwards to do a Styles Clash, it looks dumb. AJ Styles over the past year has become a novelty act. All he adds to shows is name value and an extra 50 or so fans.
There's maybe two wrestlers in So Cal better than AJ. I'll leave it to you to figure out who they are.
I'm willing to go on record that half the PWG roster is better than AJ. Although I have to say that nobody outside of PWG is better than AJ, but that's not saying much.
As far as AJ's title run...I think that is what helped PWG get the mass recognition that it enjoys to this day.
You do know that PWG was getting a lot of hype before AJ's title run, right? AJ's title run didn't generate record attendence numbers, and it didn't generate any MOTYCs. What got PWG hype was the booking, Frankie Kazarian getting signed by the WWE, All Star Weekend, and amazing matches along with the generated interest from Canadian fans with the use of Steen and Generico. To credit AJ's four month title run for the sucsess of PWG is laughable.
The General Wrestling Public didn't care who Adam Pearce or Super Dragon are
Really? Is that why Dragon is one of the most over wrestlers in America and one of the most demanded wrestlers in the indy scene? Is that why he is mega over in Europe?
But they know the name AJ Styles!!!
Yeah, they also know the names Kevin Nash, Scott Hall, Rikishi, Scott Steiner, Kanyon, and Jeff Jarrett. The opinion of what names the general wrestling public knows doesn't mean shit.
