It's still surreal to see him out of character though I know he has been before. What stood out to me is the talk of character over moves.

He's correct. I could care less about how many crisp moves are crammed into a match. Big fucking deal. Best thing WWE produced in past few years was Lesnar vs Goldberg. All character work between intense personalities & real star power. The 'wrestling' was kept short with basic stock moves. I'll take more of that over any nerdy Meltzer star rated match

I’m a big fan of my fake fighting being more physical and nerdy if you will. I want to see moves and I want to see counters to those moves.

Likewise. If I wanted just characters and storylines I could watch sitcoms or dramas. The main point of wrestling is to get a reaction and some wrestlers do that just by what they do in the ring. Character is important b/c you want the audience invested in what a wrestler does. It's not either or for me.

100% agree.

I agree, Lesnar/Goldberg was one of the best things over the last few years.  While I respect Meltzer's opinion, there are only so many 6-man Luchadore cruiserweight matches that I can watch without there being a story line.  There are so many guys who are very good, but work a similar style these days.  Character sets many of them apart.
