I know Dylan didn't enjoy Joe live (and freely admit that he saw him much more than I did in that setting), but I really loved him in the Joe/Aries vs Tye/Nak match I saw. He was the perfect straight man for the match, portraying utter disgust for Aries when he was getting stooged by Tye, as if he was some sort of homeless leper and not his tag team partner, and then instituting just the right amount of infuriating stalling (itself a contradiction because of his size advantage and how he acted towards Aries) when it was his time to face Nakamura. Then, when they were on offense, he shifted gears and made full use of Aries, managing to treat him almost like a prop. The two of them had great chemistry. We have some of the matches from that loop on youtube (and I admit they don't do Nakamura any favors), but not that one from the "Baltimore" show. I thought he really brought a lot to the match though.

I think Joe is getting the benefit of the doubt for being above average after years of being actively poor, while Riddle in some ways is already being taken for granted 16 months or so in to his career.

For people who loves promos and character, Riddle is one of the most BIZAAAAAH and funniest guys out there:

He studies zoology so he knows how to best attack an animal should his life depend on it. Does Samoa Joe know the best way to take out a bear?

The kokina clutch, obviously.

Well, yeah, but does a bear know the signal for tapping out?  I don't think so.

Joe should hit the muscle buster, hook the leg, and get the 1-2-3.
