There's something I noticed in the past two years ever since I became a member of the internet wrestling community.
Last time I checked, wrestling fans liked wrestlers because of their wrestling abilities, their mic skills and the quality of matches they put on, right?
Now it's all changed.
Now it's all about the gimmick of the superstar and whether or not fans like the gimmick.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that's completely wrong, but just because you don't like somebody's gimmick doesn't mean that all of a sudden, they're a horrible wrestler or they have terrible mic skills.
For example, look at WWE's two "superheros," Rey Mysterio and John Cena.
Many of you love to criticize these two because of their child-friendly gimmicks.
Since you hate the gimmick so much, all of a sudden they're both overrated, terrible wrestlers, and are repetitive with their moves.
First of all, Rey Mysterio puts on quality matches and has fun and innovative moves.
If you don't believe me, go watch the triple threat from Raw this past Monday and tell me if I'm wrong.
Second of all, John Cena does not only have five main moves, but so what if he does?
All of WWE's legends or icons only had five main moves such as The Rock, Steve Austin, Triple-H, Hulk Hogan and even The Undertaker.
All of a sudden when John Cena only has five main moves, and he's a terrible wrestler?
Admit it, you're just saying this because he's Super-Cena. You wouldn't say that if his character resembled Steve Austin's rattlesnake character.
If you still remember, when Cena debuted he was a rapper that would roast on everybody before his matches including the likes of The Big Show, Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker.
That character had a great connection with the fans and even though he was a heel, the fans loved him.
Then afterwards, he turned into a soldier that never gave up and out of nowhere, he's a horrible wrestler that has no charisma.
And another thing, imagine if John Cena or Rey Mysterio were never to win the World Heavyweight Championship or the WWE Championship.
Would they still be considered overrated?
I for one, definitely don't think so.
Batista was also a victim of IWC hate because he was a friendly animal.
Due to this, he was soon also considered a terrible wrestler who takes steroids.
When he turned heel, his IWC haters became his fans and the IWC loved him once again.
Just like that, when Cena turns heel, the IWC fans will love him once again because he's not Super-Cena anymore.
I'm not saying all of you do what I mention in the article, but a majority of the IWC actually does this.
To be honest, I'm not ranting on the IWC because I'm a part of it, but everything I said is true, in my opinion.
If you don't agree with my opinion, that's alright. It's my opinion and you're entitled to your own.
Feel free to drop a comment on your opinion and whether or not you agree with me.
Thanks for the read, and until next time, Joker out.
