watching that fire Monty Brown promo recently, made me think...who are the current best talkers in wrestling right now? Who can cut a promo that isn't just filler and cliche? Who actually entertains on the mic rather than going through the motions?

Jake The Snake has had some of the best promos in all of wrestling this year. His ceasar promo on Cody was unreal. People are not talking enough about how fucking good his promos and just the aura around Lance Archer/Jake The Snake is. Loving that.

MJF is kind of cliche but when he is on it is good. Jericho is still better than most modern wrestlers at promos.

WWE might have good talkers but I don't get to see them because the show sucks and the scripts ruin promos. Asuka comes to mind though. The Fiend is good at what he does but WWE shit all over him.

MOOSE kind of sucks at promos on paper but I always love them for some reason. Juice is a good promo. MOX has been gettin better at promos but he still has some duds. The North are pretty good. Josh Alexsander can talk better than I thought and Ethan Page is a shit head so it's a good combo of mean guy and douchebag.

I like two or three of Codys crying promos but it's a tired shtick to me now.

Overall there is a huge whole in promo ability with the current generation and it isn't an overstated fact. This is just true. Nobody knows how to work that mic and you can see it so clearly when Jericho and Jake The Snake are two of my favorite promos of 2020.

NWA had my favorite current roster of promo cutters in my opinion. Even with Kingston and Starks gone they still got a great group of talkers.

Since Jake the Snake counts as being active again then him. He's one of the greatest talkers of all time.

it is an unpopular opinion to say that I never thought the "you wanna play 21" promo was bad? I mean sure he's drunk or whatever but the actual promo itself based on the theme of card games is pretty cool

I get what you mean, there's a skeleton of a real classic Jake promo in there, he was just too drunk to deliver it properly and keep his train of thought together. Jake circa 1990 cutting that same promo staring coldly into the camera would've been legendary.

Aside from the aforementioned ones, I'm gonna throw in some votes for:

>Sammy Guevara
>Darby Allin

And of course there's CAMERON GRIMES!

Like most problems in modern North American wrestling, the issue stems from WWE spending the majority of this entire millennium showing they don't give a fuck about that quality.

Last I heard he was recovered but they didn't have any plans for him so they were keeping him in a talking role, sorta like Sami Zayn was with Nakamura and Claudio.

i always figured joe was just retired at this point in the eyes of wwe since they do seem to do that thing where if you get injured too many times when they decide to do something with you they just give up forever. joes good on the announce team but i wish he would be a manager or join the hurt business both routes would work maybe

Don't put words to sum how he feels like they do have physical proof of any other game should have gone with the lightning match rey paloma vs. The monster of the worst rating on booker T’s gym, and there you fucking cowards, stick with unlimited, it's community manager, they actually do anything to wait about a decade ago.

Also going to put Eddie Kingston. I’d never have someone win me over so quickly.

It'll be a real shame if he's just relegated to being the "Saudi guy". Like he said in that promo he has more value than just a couple of Saudi shows a year.

Kingston is one of the most talented talkers of all time, legitimately never heard someone sound more real in their promos. There's almost always one or two lines in his promos that connect so hard that it elevates the promo to that next level. Like when he tells pope he would've committed suicide if it wasn't for homicide the crowd goes from a regular wrestling crowd to being quiet because shit gets too real for them.

I was listening to an interview with Kingston a while back and he was saying all the stuff he says about himself in his promos he really believes, so that helps keep his promos authentic and coming from the heart

I figured everyone has already heard this one, plus, it's a bit different from a regular promo making people trying to buy into the fake show. This is basically anguish straight from the heart.

Stopped watching ROH but I remember both Briscoes cutting great promos. Kinda a shame there never gonna reach a wider audience. I'm hoping they at least show up on NWA POWERRR one day
