    When your argument is Haku would beat a trained MMAist.

    That's why I said:

    When you read on youtube videos that prime Haku would destroy any MMA HW you have to roll your eyes. There's levels to these things.



    I dare say most top MWs would take him too.

    Marks stop being in the crowd and started entering the ring thinking this wasn't just a way to milk people out of money and thinking this is somehow a performance art.

    No it's simulated combat that was entirely designed to grift people out of money. This was and always will be a carney business.

    Wrestlers were all about having a good time and snorting coke and fucking ring rats back then. Now they play games and read comic books.

    On a related note...RIP Dirty Dick Slater.

    He was the anti-Candido when it came to being cucked.

    The tough guys from Harley's generation probably enjoyed games and comic books too. Then they grew up and became men. The games and comic books they'd outgrown became replaced with drinking, fucking and fighting. There's a generation now that isn't outgrowing the things they enjoyed doing when they were 10 years old.

    For me there's too many segments, too much drama and not enough in ring entertainment.

    The wrestlers are fine.

    It's the booking and scripted promos that screw them.

    To add another Jim Cornette quote to the pile, in a shoot interview he said that NXT wrestlers are trained to be characters and not workers. So when the character doesn't work they don't know what to do next
