Celt vs the forces of Badposting !BzcOsK03.w - Sat, 13 Jan 2018 15:16:12 EST ID:2x34jfxe No.5938768 Report Quick Reply
Meltzer this week was talking about Brock in NJPW, and explained that he just wasn't motivated to do much because the company was basically in the shitter at the time, but it would be his view that if that same Brock had been in the atmosphere of the current locker room, he'd work to that level too.

That would be have been good to see. Current Brock probably wouldn't work out because he's starting to age and slow down.

The moment is also now starting to pass as well, but for a time there I think Sheamus and his hardhitting style would have done well in Japan. Tall, muscular, hardhitting, the mic work wouldn't have been as big a deal...it would have been an interesting experiment.

I think I even remember a tweet from either Gallows or Anderson saying that there was a spot for him in BC if he wanted it when WWE released him.

He had a good run on the indies, but get the feeling that working in japan would've made him a hotter act when he returned to NXT.

Brock in 90s Japan would be top tier. Wars with Hansen, Jumbo, Misawa, Kawada, Kobashi and Taue in AJPW, slugfests with Vader in NJPW/UWFi. Brock is the one man I want to send in a wrestling time machine.

I'm not saying that a majority of the Japanese crowd went for Okada v Naito, but I think it's also foolish to say that not one of them paid to see Jericho V Omega. People can pay to go to an event for more than one match.

basically, the pro wrestlers in the company would work their matches a bit, and the guys who weren't in the business (mostly kickboxers) would fight as if it was a shoot (because it was). but even in modern mma you see guys purposefully drawing fights out or being risky to make their fight more exciting.
