The amount of unnecessary anger this man gives Bryan, Dave and Vinny will never cease to be funny

>NO YOU CANT HAVE A CHARACTER LIKE THIS IN THE WRESTLING BUSINESS ALL CHARACTERS IN WRESTLING NEED TO BE COPY PASTE AND BORING LIKE THEY'RE IN ACTUAL SPORTS ORGANIZATIONS LIKE NEW JAPAN WHERE EVERYONE'S CHARACTER BOILS DOWN TO

I have never seen a match of his. Can someone tell me why people are mad or what criticism they have against him? Maybe some youtube clips to show whats bad about the guy.

At least in TNA, he had more of a backstory and lore. In NXT, he just shows up looking like a creep and kidnaps people occasionally and we are never told why.

inceIs hate to look at themselves so naturally they seem to notice their particularly bad traits (not being totally mentally there, coming off as kinda creepy, loner) in a professional athlete who is managing to highlight them in a way that gives him a distinct appeal as a wrestler.

I really love Sam Shaw as a wrestler even when he's stuck with terrible booking. The opinions of the boys over at the Wrestling Observer can't change that. If Dexter Lumis really is the worst thing possible, then they have to actually be honest about other wrestlers in the WWE, AEW, or other promotions. who have worse gimmicks or can't protect their image.

I think given that they named him Dexter Lumis, that's supposed to be the explanation. Like if they hired someone who worked a cannibal gimmick before NXT and named them Hannibal Clarice.

Brian Alvarez and Dave Meltzler, as much as i respect them, and Vinny, whom i respect a bit less, have some real poopy caca opinions when it comes to character wrestlers
but who gives a shit anyways? why make a thread about some guys have a different opinion than yours, who cares?

Vinny's constant ranting about Lumis and Bryan's every day confusion trying to understand the character every time he appears have always been the highlights of the NXT/AEW reviews for me.

Haven't seen a match of his that really stood out, but he's good at being a weirdo so there's that. Have they established what he does with people after he kidnaps them? I'm choosing to believe that he makes them play with dolls with him or something.

>don't watch, don't know/care
You're the same people that post "still listening in current year" on youtube videos aren't you?

Dexter and Lumis are both characters from the show Dexter, so two characters from the Silence of the Lambs made more sense to me than one fictional cannibal and one real one.

I liked Sam Shaw in TNA because he actually wrestled and moved around the ring in character which was quite refreshing.

Don't watch WWE but It's unsurprising that the WONkers don't like him. Meltzer is like the anti Russo these days, they are both at the far end of a continuum about what makes wrestling good and refuse to budge.

i was not aware people disliked lumis this hard but i do get it seeing as when he was in tna as sam shaw i always found myself thinking his gimmick would never work in wwe because of how heavily story based it needs to be. in tna he would stalk people and kidnap people but they would explain it like when he kidnapped christy hemme and did a bunch of videos explaining it plus it helps that he was generally normal as in he talked and did more than just stare into space.

but the main issue for dexter lumis is that he is stuck with a character that wwe has no ability to write for ever. seriously if anybody can tell me a time when wwe came up with a good stalker/creepy guy gimmick that did not turn into nothing after a week please let me know.

You need to stop getting worked by Youtubers. It's Bryan's gimmick to get mad and rant. Just like it's Cornette's gimmick to pretend he hates everything that's not serious sports kayfabe.

From what I've heard of Lumis, he seems fine, with an interesting gimmick. Even in Impact he sounded like he had potential.

From what I've heard of Lumis, he has ZERO chance on the main roster.

His ceiling is the edge of a cliff. Get invested in him and only heartache and disappointment awaits.

How is that everyone's character in NJPW? You have Yano who literally tries to shill t-shirts and cooking DVDs while he's wrestling, Okada whose bit is that he's a nice guy but a bit arrogant and sometimes it clouds his judgement, Jericho is there as the Painmaker and Mox as "Death Rider" Jon Moxley, not long ago was the retirement of Jushin Thunder Liger, for fuck's sake, and Ibushi who is basically a shonen anime protagonist, all off the top of my head. Even Suzuki, who was actually a major figure in the development of Japanese MMA, has a lot more going for him than that.

Also, don't Meltzer and such absolutely love Orange Cassidy?

Posts like that are usually made by people who have never actually watched New Japan. No one could see a Yano match and still cling to the idea that it's all serious business all the time.

NJPW is my favorite promotion and I'm fine with this guy. Are you sure you just didn't here one NJPW fan say something bad and ran with it? Because I find it hard to believe that NJPW fans - the birthplace of Kung Fu Man Wato and Stab Master Jay have a problem with a guy actually playing up the gimmick hoisted on him.
