I could have swore we had a thread of 'unpopular opinions' but I can't find it. Tell me something that you believe but you know your feelings go against the grain.

Keep it civil.

I always thought that Mick Foley was wayyyy out of line for complaining about his match vs Mil Mascaras at Clash of Champions. Cactus Jack at the time was a midcard guy and why he thought that match was going to be anything besides a squash was beyond me. Everyone got behind Mick because everyone loved his book, but come on.

I didn't like the late 80's to early 90's Sting. A cartoon character who was limited in the ring and had poor mic skills.

The Sheild is overrated. All good wrestlers but they're upper mid card to lower main event level talent with occasional main events here & there. None of them are 'The One'. Has either one of them ever had a good promo or interview yet ? If they did it's few & far between. Between Rollins nasally wimp voice, Reigns' low energy monotone & Ambrose coming off more like he's from the druggie fringe than the lunatic fringe its enough to make you catch a case

Mascaras has one reputation and Foley has another, so Foley gets the benefit of the doubt here.

It's funny, I liked the Shield as a team and individually but you really make an excellent point here.

Agreed.

Chief Jay Strongbow and Ivan Putski pretty much sucked.

Dave Meltzer is gay for Japanese wrestling and feels molested somewhere in the past by Bob Backlund.

Dean Ambrose is a channel changer for me. I don't see anything in him at all.

Now, but I was saying this to my grandparents as a kid. It was not a popular opinion, trust me.

My unpopular opinions:

-Hulk Hogan is the greatest professional wrestler of all time. He's not my favorite (that would be Snuka), but he was the best.

-Bobby Heenan is overrated. I liked him, but the way people talk about him like he was some sort of comedic genius, is bizarre. He had about 1 good joke for every 10 attempts. He was fine as a manager, but Jesse Ventura was a FAR better heel announcer.

-Stone Cold Steve Austin was lame. Never liked him as a wrestler, but I really do enjoy his podcasts now. I know he was over and all that, but he was a channel changer to me back in the Attitude era. I hated his working class hero/badass gimmick. Giving the finger to his boss wasn't cool to me. I had no respect for him and thought his fans were all white trash losers.

I can definitely agree with the perspective of Heenan being overrated. I have said that for years.

Dory Funk was boring as shit and there would have been a dozen better NWA champions had he not had the political ear.

Most wrestling in the 1980s outside the WWF looked like it had all the prestige of a cigarette break.

Jim Ross was a highly over-rated announcer. He was good in the UWF and WCW but everything after that was average at best.

I have to agree.  I think many actually agree, just not as much of the internet wrestling community.

I think Jesse Ventura is a better heel announcer, but I thought Heenan was good at getting heels over in interviews, and I thought he played off of Monsoon very well.



-Stone Cold Steve Austin was lame. Never liked him as a wrestler, but I really do enjoy his podcasts now. I know he was over and all that, but he was a channel changer to me back in the Attitude era. I hated his working class hero/badass gimmick. Giving the finger to his boss wasn't cool to me. I had no respect for him and thought his fans were all white trash losers.


While I found Austin to be entertaining from a "shock tv" point of view (especially at that time in my life age wise), I don't feel like his character is at all timeless.  When he comes to the ring now and spills beer all over himself it feels kind of sad since he comes off as a 50 year old alcoholic.  Some of that is not his fault to a degree, that was the character.  I agree on the catering to the "white trash" folks with the gimmick.  I like his cleaner podcast too.  He asks good questions.
