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.
