Michael Elgin needs to get away from the House of Truth. It’s only holding him back right now. They’ve been teasing the fall of the House of Truth for a couple months now, and the time is right.
Elgin is insanely over with the crowd and is more than capable of carrying a match all by himself.
I'd be remiss to mention the whole five-star match thing too.
Elgin is awesome. Not in the colloquial definition, but in that I constantly find myself in awe of him. This guy is the wrestling equivalent of baseball’s five-tool player.
He does it all. He has insane power, great quickness and the ability to make his opponents look good. I know that’s only three, but I didn’t mean that literally.
I also hope you enjoyed my apparent Jon Gruden impression back there. (“Now I call THIS GUY the SWISS ARMY KNIFE because he’s GOT ALL THE TOOLS!”)
I am very excited for the face turn that has to be on the way. However, I hope Elgin does not become a Cena/Bo Dallas type who gets beat up for 10 minutes, then “never gives up” (TM) before winning. Elgin should be Elgin—in a word, dominant.
I should also give credit to two of Elgin’s recent opponents.
Davey Richards convincingly dealt and took a beating against Elgin at Showdown in the Sun. Richards has a way of falling into wrestling wankery if you give him more than 15 minutes. However, he toned it down and fit it to his opponent. Richards deserves credit for that match too.
Then, at Border Wars, Adam Cole managed to hang with Elgin, believably, for almost 15 minutes. That’s no easy task, especially for someone without a title history to lend credibility.
