So who are the best and worst of the identikit intense indie kids? Who most strongly embodies the category, and to whom does it not apply? We'll see. My opening opinions are as follows: BEST JOHNNY KICKPADS: Low Ki. Arguably should be disqualified for actually having a kick based offence, but he was one of the originators of the style, and embodies much of the archetype. He's tiny. He works pointlessly stiff. He does dangerous spots and has finisher spamming matches. He has had no memorable promos in a near two decade career. But he's also had some bloody brilliant matches in his time. So I'll say he's the best. WORST JOHNNY KICKPADS: Nobody immediately springs to mind, because they're indistinct and unmemorable. So I'll put Quiet Storm here as a placeholder. Storm Cradle Driver! MOST JOHNNY KICKPADS: Again tricky, as they blur into one. So I'll pick two, the Spanish Announce Team. Amazing Red made it to TNA twice, Jose and Joel never did. Why? Because they were too Johnny Kickpads. NOT JOHNNY KICKPADS: Yeah, I'll give Drake Maverick his due. He realised his lack of size obliged him to work a style his body couldn't handle, so he changed his game, adopted the Rockstar persona and ultimately bought about the end of the kickpad era. Before that, he was a Johnny. But then he killed Johnny.
