    What was up with Demolition Ax in New Japan in 1991? There's a random Ax/Keiji Muto match on New Japan World from February 1991.

    Because of your post, I watched it and it's pretty boring and shitty.  Ax was just going through the motions but he was doing that towards the last half of 90 anyways.  I just imagined what it must've been like as a Japanese fan who knew nothing of Demolition to see this average looking man dressed in paint and bdsm gear trying to be a tough wrestler.  He wasn't doing any of the mannerisms of Ax either.  Sad, really.

  2. Bam Bam was far from mediocre, in my eyes.  The guy could have a great match with anyone and was pretty believable as a big man heel.  He was certainly never going to be the face of a company though.  Some would say he is one of the best big men in modern history.  Name me 3 guys better than him (try to exclude Vader).

    I like Herc but he is definitely on the cusp.  To me, he fits in with guys like Barbarian or Warlord, in that he they look good and are pretty damn solid workers but that's about it.  I think I became a fan of the Barbarian from this board, from one of the topics on him back 05 or so.

  3. I love the Warlord, Haku, and Barbarian.  All pretty solid guys.

    Sid is a great example of a mediocre guy.  He had AMAZING presence at times and when he was protected well, he looked pretty serviceable.  But, when he was unchained, the guy was horrible, case in point his 99-00 stuff.  His entrance was the best thing he had going for him then.  His WWF runs were pretty reeled in and better by default.  He was booked great in ECW too for his short stint.

    Uh, Matt Hardy was really fucking good long before the Broken run. He was the arguably the best worker in the WWE during his singles run in 2007/2008.  

    But would he have drawn?  I was thinking more along the lines of who is the total package.  Look at Benoit, who I consider on the cusp of mediocrity.  The guy was extremely dull, could talk just competently, but he was a hell of a worker.  He was never going to draw for a major American company, at least.  IMO, Matt Hardy is a similar guy.  He could work but he was kinda dull even during his Version 1 days.

  5. Who do you guys think are the best mediocre wrestlers of all-time?  Guys who maybe had the looks and size to be a star but just didn't have much else, and even got big pushes too. 

    I have to think that Paul Roma is the bottom of the barrel for mediocrity and the standard bearer.  He was good looking with a good physique who wasn't going to draw for shit.  For the top of the mediocre list, I'd put guys like Lex Luger and Bobby Lashley.  I'm a fan of Luger but he never had the charisma to justify his big pushes.  I loved him as a babyface and wish he'd have gotten more time in a role like that.  Lashley is as dull as you can get, with no major presence or charisma, and the only way he is looking good is through amazing protection/booking.  I'm told his heel run in Impact was decent though but since returning to the WWE, he has kinda floundered.

    How about Matt Hardy before his Broken run?  Who else you guys got?

    not ignorant at all my friend,  as of today they are going to air a replay version of it.  Honor club is showing it live but not world as of now sadly.  If you can stay spoiler free you can at least catch a replay on World.

     

    Can I just subscribe to the HonorClub for a month and watch it with that, or is there a straight PPV option on top of that?
