He's become a little formulaic in the past few years, really leaning heavily on the chickenwing out of nowhere (which he almost never applies correctly), and the fingersnap. But dude is a great wrestler, and the villain gimmick did produce some fantastic character work. His recent heel run as progress champion was pretty damn good too.

He's the panto entertainment hahamemes chocolate to ZSJ's srs grappling goturarmm8 peanut butter. They were put together in the first place with the intention of rubbing off on one another (which they did; that's how much worse they both used to be).
I first heard of him when my brother watched the 1st TNA British Bootcamp and sung his praises to high heaven. Something to the effective of "We have guys THAT good over here?! Lookit dat deadlift superplex!". Saw him live a few months later when he was still doing the fun-loving happy-to-be-here "Party Marty" gimmick and could clearly tell he has a lot of charisma, good instincts, etc.. The Villain gimmick was a massive detour and pretty damn enjoyable in its own right, I run under the assumption that in-kayfabe he got sick of constantly being in ZSJ's globe-trotting shadow and simply went crazy.
Admittedly the novelty's worn off and the signature spots have gotten stale but he still gets reactions & moves merch so I think that's the idea. Man's a worker to the core. If fans will pay for the same easy harmless shit over and over again why not keep doing it? Minimum effort for maximum reward has been wrestling's secret formula since the work began, it's how Jerry Lawler became a legend despite being a burger-guzzling comic-reading art-student.

Check out his match against Ciampa, I know that's just one match out of the bunch he's had, so defeats the argument but I think Joe can still go especially if he makes it strike/chop heavy and grounded pace like he did with Ciampa. Sure it isn't flashy, but the echoing chops always gets me to pop and I know it's personal preference but I enjoy more grounded wrestling more like Joe's style because everything is so flashy nowadays.

I've seen a lot of Scurll in PWG and veyr little of him elsewhere and I'm of the same opinion of OP. I don't really get the appeal of Scurll, he seems like a charismatic yet unimpressive wrestler. Plus his "finger-breaking" spot annoys the hell out of me because, like 90% of indie wrestlers these days, the hand is only sold for momentary laughs and obligatory "you sick fuck" chanting before the match carries on as if the spot never happened.

Yeah, pretty much all this. Marty had an originally interesting act that won people over in the UK, and he's proceeded to ram it into the ground worldwide, most of the time in markets that are completely unresponsive to his schtick.

He's been less impressive than Taichi in what I've watched of BOSJ so far, and the Bullet Club deal has made him even more of a lowest common denominator. His place is always gonna be with the Joey Ryans and Adam Coles of the world, and good for him for that I suppose because it means he'll be able to make a good amount of money coasting in second gear for the next decade at least.

The great majority of indy dudes who have really minimal or nonexistent gimmicks.

Guys like Villain and super athletic big boys are an exception I guess, they don't totally suck.

I don't think I'll never get out of the 80's-early 00's american wrestling mentality or whatever exactly my problem is. You HAVE to have an elaborate gimmick or something else really unique about you for me to give a shit. This is why in my mind Ricoshet is just a piss break but Price Puma is pretty good. Fuck the largely uncreative wasteland of indy wrestling, it kills my love for the business more than any WWE bullshit possibly could. I dunno why modern indies can't create a decent kayfabe universe like ECW and SMW did.

Because the indies you watch are probably these super indies that only book flavor of the month talent and don't have a real regular roster of guys they use to tell stories. A kayfabe universe also isn't as important if you don't have TV. These bookers have no idea when one of their dudes is going to get poached by WWE or ROH or something, so why should they bother?

Watch Chikara if you like gimmicks and continuity in storylines, not PWG.

It doesn't help that most indies only run shows about once a month, so there's not much space with which to develop stories the way you can with weekly television. The "hot match" format is practically a necessity.

This. One of the biggest problems with modern professional wrestling is the lack of truly larger-than-life all-around performers in the vein of Austin, Flair, and the like. There's too many bland, interchangeable indie workrate geeks and not enough people that stand out for reasons other than MOVEZ. D-bry's probably the closest any of these indie workrate geeks have gotten to achieving it, but he's on the shelf until he can flee the WWE roost, so

I thought I'd enjoy some Keith Lee highlights recently seeing that everyone has been calling him one of the best hosses today. Kinda disappointed that I don't enjoy his work so far.

For a big indie guy, Keith doesn't move as fluidly as other big guys like Willie Mack or Brian Cage. I don't like the way he sells some moves by lumbering around on his feet; he's big, but it's not like he's a giant standing next to Jeff Cobb or Ishii. He also does big guy flips and outside dives, which I only find acceptable on a hoss if he's 400 lbs and his name is Vader. Besides that, I don't think Keith really looks menacing for a hoss. His fat is more Kevin Owens rather than Samoa Joe; flabby, not bulky. His arms don't look big enough to crush tree trunks, so it doesn't look forceful when he throws lariats or powerslams his opponents.

It kinda sucks that I can't appreciate his work. It's always nice to hear another indy guy have a breakout year, it's just a shame that Keith's performance isn't something I personally enjoy.

He's been in the 'E for over a decade now, headlined Wrestlemania, been WWE champ, won every other belt and yet I find The Miz one of the most overrated wrestlers I've ever seen. His in ring work is meh (can't think of a great match off the top my head), can't say I'm particularly impressed with his promos (its always been the same unconvincing delivery of WWE verbiage).

I remember hearing years ago that Kevin Dunn was a fan because of the MTV connection and that pretty much explains why his guy is so prominently featured. He's a bland corporate choice. His shoot on talking smack made was the first thing ever that made me take notice of him, but alas lead to nothing significant.

Also, Eric Young. Found his niche as the anxious Team Canada member, but never did it for me as anything else. Good wrestler, but a journeyman if I've ever saw one. Never found him believable as a heel, just comes off as bad acting to me. Career comedy act and Women's knockout tag champ that TNA made champion after a weeks build. Whether as part of the World Elite, The Band or singles main eventer, pushed beyond his level/ability.

Great matches of his are almost anything with Dolph or Dean Ambrose

Maybe there's nothing to really get into here, but after hearing a ton of hype for Sammy Guevara, I got a chance to see him live and I just saw absolutely nothing special about the guy.

He's a small guy, he does a lot of flips, he yells out funny things to make the crowd laugh. He is such an utterly generic indy flip guy, he felt like he belonged in that old ROH stable Special K.

I mostly got into him via his work in Mexico. Reminds me of a young Jack Evans.

Watch his matches with Hechicero and Keith Lee in Lucha Memes and Inspire Pro respectively on Youtube, those are his best that I've seen. The Keith match gets to kickout overkill a little bit but the overall underdog story is great stuff, as is each individual sequence.

Can we admit this guy is super boring yet?

This, and sometimes having a cool costume makes a big difference in wrestling. I like Prince Puma but I think Ricochet is boring.

I remember seeing him for the first time on a Wrestle Circus free show a few months back. He's the living embodiment of a WWE videogame CAW with his generic look and repertoire of cool moves he took from other wrestlers.

if we're being honest, emoting promoing and gimmicks are all that really matter to american wrestling fans as long as you are an at least competent wrestler
so puma would have 1/3 instead of 0/3

>but it's not like he's a giant standing next to Jeff Cobb or Ishii.
As irony would have it I thought the same thing about the same example before last Thursday.

I actually loved his Bray feud because they finally started using the Demon stuff close to properly even though it was still kinda clumsy, but yeah overall he's not that exciting. I'm convinced it's mostly not his fault though, it's the people in control thinking his good looks will make people interested in him forever. The Jeff Hardy problem I guess?

I just hope his main roster run never reaches the boring depths of his NXT run, that was some really lazy creative and kinda the quality event horizon for NXT.

Bray Wyatt, among my group of friends who I watch wrestling with none of us liked him. His only good matches were tags and his promos are just nonsense. I was shocked to see he had a following.

And while I do enjoy their work, I don't think I like AJ Styles, Finn or Kenny Omega nearly as much as I'm expected to.
