I'm not sure there's ever been anyone else in wrestling history so thoroughly dependent on buying into his own bullshit.

I'd think you would say "brody."

How much did he actually buy it? Watch any of his shoot interviews from his ECW period in hindsight, it's looks to me like he was working and he totally knew it. He had more shooty-graps training than your average ham-&-egger, which was all he needed to be able to sell that gimmick as successfully as he did. The one thing that really held him back (besides jokes about his height) was a lack of versatility: he basically only had two gears, Total Squash and Wild Brawl, and struggled to do well in anything else which didn't fit neatly into either of those categories.

There are no Taz matches that make me go Holy Shit because he's so protected in the booking that it is totally anticlimactic.

 

Then there's the fact that he actually drinks his own Guyana kool-aid.

 

I do thank the guy for being one of the primary catalysts for shoot finishers and sick ass Puro suplexes reaching US shores.
