How Dave Lagana made me understand my own opinion

How David Lagana made me understand my own opinion

Hello All

Just a short blog from me this week but one that really means a lot to me and gave me an insight into myself and also into the psychology and the intricacies of Pro wrestling, it made me look at it a completely different way.

David Lagana took me to school.

This week David Lagana Current Writer for Impact Wrestling who has also written previously for WWE and iconic TV show Friends.

David  asked on his twitter whether he had Any UK followers watching Challenge TV at 9pm to see Impact Wrestling, this past Sunday night. 

 I replied that I was from the UK and I would be watching the show and David Lagana asked me to tweet him my thoughts on the show as it went on.

It was one tweet that I sent in particular and that I got a reply from Mr Lagana that made me realise so much about myself, how I form opinions and also how I watch pro wrestling David Lagana achieved this in 6 words.

It all started when The Miracle  Mike Bennett came on screen I saw his entrance with the Beautiful Maria and I'm sat there thinking I don't understand this guy The Miracle, why is he the miracle and what makes him so special he isn't? I really don't like him at all.

So I send the following tweet to Mr Lagana with my opinion on The Miracle


His reply was



With those few special words David Lagana That's when I realised how clever Mike Bennett is and I realised why I don't like the character.

You see in David reply he said

"Hence the heel calling himself that" and that's when the fog finally lifted for me

Mike Bennett is portraying a bad guy, even before saying a word and coming out he has already got me to not like him because of his name, his entrance and his demeanour. I don't have to understand his character because in what Mike did, he already made me dislike his character without understanding it,

Establishing that is so very clever and shows the depth of thought that goes into creating a character like his.

It also made me look at myself and it makes you realise that although you don't think you form opinions straight away you do and sometimes in my case my opinion was formed before I even realised it and tweeted it and understood it fully.

When AJ Styles was attacked by The Bullet Club following New Japan Pro Wrestling Pay per view Wrestlekingdom 10 Kenny Omega took control of the group and an offshoot of The Bullet Club now named The Elite was formed and born.

The Elite are a group of 3 Professional Wrestlers Kenny Omega, Matt Jackson and Nick Jackson (The Young Bucks) these 3 men came together to create The Elite.


The Young Bucks Nick and Matt

Nick and Matt have been a tremendously entertaining Tag Team who have been all over the world they have been in ROH, Chikara, New Japan, TNA and many more. They have won many championships over the world and in 2016 are one of the biggest Tag Teams in the world of wrestling.


Kenny Omega

Kenny Omega has been in DDT Wrestling, Chikara, New Japan Wrestling, ROH,WWE and Many More himself.

Kenny has had matches of the year in Japan vs Koto Ibushi and has won IGWP Junior Heavyweight Championship and IGWP intercontinal Championship too as Well as holding 6 man tag titles NEVER Weight with The Young Bucks (Nick and Matt)

Omega said he and The Young Bucks were The Elite.

Omega said in an interview

"There's a place you can go to watch the most ridiculous and entertaining stuff in pro wrestling, and it's The Elite".

If you haven't seen them and you haven't experienced what The Elite are doing in Professional Wrestling and the Wrestling world then be prepared to smile, laugh and have fun.

They are truly so much fun in New Japan Pro Wrestling, they do what they think is fun and have free reign to create and come up with what they want to do and bring it too the audience in whatever way they see fit.

Not only can all 3 of these men have consistently  great Wrestling matches but they can entertain when they are out of the ring too.

They are doing what makes them laugh and what appeals to their sense of humour they are being unique and creating their own path in Pro Wrestling.

A lot of fans think that The Young Bucks and Kenny Omega should be in WWE. There is no doubt in my mind that at some point in time they will be and they will be tremendously successful too.

Right now though I want to enjoy what they are now and what they can do and produce right now for as long as possible because when they enter the machine of WWE they maybe wont have the same freedom.

Check out this video below from the Elite

The Elite - Vines that should of Gone Viral


Since The Elite have been formed they have been having an ongoing battle with WWE trio The New Day (Xavier Woods, Kofi Kingston and Big E) about who is the best and most dominant trip in the world of pro wrestling The Elite even issued this challenge to The New Day (please click the video below to view)

The Elite - Challenge to The New Day


The New day then responded to The Elite just before Wrestlemaina in this interview with 2k Sports! Please see video below




The Elite are doing things to entertain themselves and the Wrestling world they are having fun and enjoying what they are doing and it translates on screen and to the fans as well.
The following videos is a great example of this.

The Elite - In a Bad Way


The Elite - Matt gets stood up (My personal favourite!!)



Also Kenny Omega has been having his own ongoing personal battle with Austin Creed (WWE Xavier Woods) about who is the better gamer. Both are very competitive and have been facing each other in a series of challenges.

You can see the series of Video game challenges below

Omega vs Creed Part 1


Omega vs Creed Part 2 NBA Jam

Always remember its An Elite Day!!!!

A Rocky Road to Wrestlemaina 32

A Rocky Road to Wrestlemania 32



I was watching Pro Wrestling report Recently and Opinionist David Herro did his segment where he talks DHHS (David Herro Has Spoken) and its him speaking the truth as he See's it about professional wrestling. David talked about their recently experience about going to WWE Smackdown in Milwaukee and the lack to talent on the show.



David Remarked that at WWE Smackdown in Milwaukee there was no

Roman Reigns
Brock Lesnar
The Undertaker
Big Show
Kane
John Cena
Seth Rollins
Randy Orton
Becky Lynch
Sasha Banks
Charlotte
The New Day

You can see David DHHS Segment as part of this Episode of Pro Wrestling Report Primetime (at 27:36)



David remarked that fans complain about John Cena and Roman Reigns being in WWE but the Smackdown show he saw in Milwaukee was a taste of WWE without those top talents and that the talent pool is very thin right now.


I wanted to add my own 2 cents into this debate also........but adding in my own twist too I want to look at this in the context of Wrestlemaina and what some of the missing injured talent could mean for the show of shows.


So here we are a few short weeks away from Wrestlemania 32 the anticipation is building and wrestling fans all over the world will be coming to AT and T Stadium to see the biggest spectacle in Sports Entertainment. 

This is a special time of year for Wrestling fans its one of surprise returns, match ups and fantasy matches coming true.

To a degree WWE have given us this already with the return of Shane Mcmahon and the return of The Undertaker too.

However the legacy of the Wrestlemania may not be the sellout attendance record that WWE want, It may be remembered more for the people that are missing rather than the people that are there.

I'm not saying that Wrestlemaina  32 wont be successful it will be, we know The Rock will be making an appearance in some form and Wrestlemania 32 from both a monetary and wrestling standpoint I think it will be a success.

However there will be a void I feel that most wrestling fans wont want to admit but everyone will know is there a void that could of made Wrestlemania 32 into the biggest of super shows

John Cena, Seth Rollins, Randy Orton - 3 top main event talents that could headline any Wrestlemania show, these talents wont be appearing at Wrestlemania 32 and that is a huge shame these men contribute so much to WWE and it is a huge loss to WWE at Wrestlemaina having these men in and around your main events for Maina has been a hard hurdle for WWE to Overcome.

WWE in recent months has had to overcome the loss of Sting as an in ring talent due to a neck injury and also the very sad and tragic retirement of Daniel Bryan from in Ring competition due to concussion issues. You have got to think that both of these men if fit and healthy would of been involved in Wrestlemania 32 had they been medically cleared


Seth Rollins
John Cena
 


David explained that without these superstars that the show lacks that "big time special Feel" and that could be translated to Wrestlemaina 32.

It might be that it has matches, makes money and people are happy with the show

but

Will we as fans at the end of Wrestlemaina 32 when it is all over  be left with that feeling of what might of been and what could of been with this Wrestlemania?
