It's a toss-up between AJ and Daniels, both of whom have had 4 star matches (at least) on every PPV they've appeared on this year. Daniels is more charismatic and has been the epitome of a great heel. On the other hand, they don't call AJ 'phenomenal' for nothing. His in-ring skills are genuinely amazing. I suppose that Styles has just about been my favourite this year so I'll pick him

AJ and Joe are definately not over rated. I used to think AJ was but when you watch him for a long period of time you realise that he really isn't. He is the only guy that I have seen slide underneath the guard rail.

 

Dan please explain the Monty Brown thing, infact anyone explain the Monty Brown thing. The guy is averag on the mic and average in the ring. His finisher is a bigger pile of monkey poo than Michael Owen. So please someone tell em what the appeal is?

Yeah sorry I put that wrong. Basically I like AJ a lot, so I don't think he is overrated. I just think Daniels and Shelley are better workers however.

As for Joe, he is like Bret Hart to me. While he may be good for the first 5 times you see him, when you have watched him at least 50 times, you realise why he is nothing special.

Plenty of Hart matches were classics, but he used the same routines every match, and it gets boring quick. He never changed his style, added moves or anything, which is why I think he is also overrated.

Joe is the same. Every match, he uses the same things, and I'm bored of him. When i first saw him, he was using som moves, and I was very big on him. i liked him a lot, but then after a while of watching his matches over and over, I could tell he didn't mic it up enough, and went off him. That is why he is very overrated.

His ring work is very average for a big man, yet because he squashes a lot fo jobbers, he looks good. Goldberg did, so I can see why people would rate him highly againgst small guys, but againgst anyone fairly big, much like Abyss or Hoyt, he is sh*t. On the mic, he's charasmatic, but he can't cut a good promo. Every one I have seen has been average, until he screams "POUNCE........period". The only promo of his that sticks in my mind, is when he turned heel. his first promo after that was fairly good, but that's it.

Samoa Joe for me. Proof people don't need ripped figures to be frickin' awesome.
I'd probably enjoy his matches more, if he didn't look like the Michelin Man.

I have to go with AJ - if for nothing else, that "under the barrier" slide at Lockdown. Anybody who can do stuff that insane and seemingly on a spur of the moment thing (even though it was probably planned) just has to be good.

 

He seems to be able to bust out stuff which just makes you go "wow", and he mixes his matches up enough to not be repetitive.

I have no doubt in my mind that AJ Styles, Chirs Daniels, Alex Shelly etc are much better performers than Monty Brown in terms of in ring work. But I personally prefer Monty Brown, not sure what it is, but I'm a mark and think Monty is a very charasmatic guy who really carries himself well on TV, I think he's the guy casual fans will pay to watch, no knock on AJ, Joe, Daniels etc, but I think Brown has "it", what that is I'm not sure, but I think he's a good talent.

 

As I said, he's not a great in ring worker, but I think he's good on the mic, and has alot of charisma, if TNA push him well, I'm confident I'll be a huge star in TNA and the wresling world.

 

I don't expect many people to agree with me, but to be fair, I don't really care :P

I have a problem with Monty, and that's his "welcome to the Serengheti" gimmick (probably spelt that wrong).

 

I really dislike the way he wipes his forehead on the ropes and the way he does the promos.

 

The guy definitely has charisma, there's no doubt about that, but he needs to do something different and get a REAL finishing move - it's only a shoulder block after all. :P

Without a doubt I think his finisher is awful, he should use something which looks much more powerful really and something which actually looks like a finisher.

 

I do think if Brown was to go to the WWE, and if the WWE seriously used Brown correctly and with the WWE Marketing machine I think he could be one of the the top stars, but thats just a "What if?"

Samoa Joe for me, he is a damn scary wrestler without even trying, he could legitimatley beat the crap out of any wrestler in the world. He is super over in TNA and ROH and deservedly so, I have yet to see Jow in a bad match and he seems to get better every time I see him. His next PPV match with Lyger will be another MOTY candidate no doubt about it. There is nobody that can compare to Joe in ring, in the US.

I also have a problem with that, for a different reason though. If he is supposedly from the Serengeti (I can't spell it either), why do the commentators, spefically Tenay, always talk about him in thr NFL? Are we meant to believe he grew up in the Jungle, went to live in the US, learned perfect English, became a American Footballer, and is now wrestling?

There is nobody that can compare to Joe in ring' date=' in the US.[/quote']I would disagree with that big time. There is so many wrestlers around who piss all over Joe, such as Christopher Daniels, Bryan Danielson, Styles, Paul London, CM Punk, Austin Aries, Colt Cabana, probably Low Ki, Rocky Romero, James Gibson/Jamie Noble, Alex Shelley and when I can be bothered, I'll think of some more :P

AJ, I used to think he was over rated until I saw him live: THEN you realise just how good he is! And Abyss is great too.

 

The others...some I enjoy, some I dont. Nut until I have seen them live they cant touch AJ!

 

 

Ooooohhh, I cant wait for the 1PW shows.......
