    Not sure what the comparison is here to be honest? Steroid infused below average wrestler with zero charisma vs Sami Zayne?


    Explain please as this confuses me.

    Luger had a great look and evolved into a decent performer in 1997. He did great business with Hogan. And was over as fuck.

    Sami Zayn has a terrible look and shows no potential of rectifying his flaws. Yet, he'll get pushed because the niche audience lives vicariously through him. "He's one of us, bla, bla, bla".

    The wrestling business is dead.

    I'm pretty sure that if Sami Zayne ever got to wrestle a prime Ric Flair that he'd have a five star match too.....

    That said, i'm surprised Luger has had any matches rated that highly even with him being across the ring from Flair, dude just didnt come across as natural ( to me at least).

    Zayn isn't fit to lace Flair's boots.

    Neither was Luger, but he was around in the same promotion at the same time, and he had the good fortune to have the "look" that was in at the time so had the opportunity to work with Flair.

    What's the issue with Zayne? Just the way he looks or...?

    It would be nice to stop the comparison threads. The 70s are different from the 90s (really) so you either evolve or don't watch. I can't compare guys breaking into the business in the 80s to now as it was a lot harder back then. I am not going to cry over it either as again life and wrestling evolve. I don't know if it's for the better or worse but enjoy the time you had in your era and watch it. Who wants to complain and cry about it all the time as there is no point. Sorry, just see too many threads like this talking about what things use to be and how they are now. Follow an aspect of the business you like or a wrestler, company, etc. Don't know how to say this any clearer.

    Comparisons are part of the fun though - for example: you run the promotion, both men in their prime: The Ultimate Warrior vs Goldberg. Who'd you book to win? Why? Which was your favorite? Why?

    I say Goldberg because he comes off as much more aggressive. Neither are really on my favorite list anymore since I'm just not too big of a fan of their style .Grew up with my dad who's a huge Ultimate Warrior fan though and was a big fan of Goldberg when I was a kid. Dude just reeked of baddassery

    He was never fit for TV in the first place.

    He has a terrible look and has a terrible character.

    No one would ever buy a ticket to see him outside of a small niche audience. He's bad for pro wrestling.

    Use your head.

    Do you want pro wrestling to thrive or not? Pro wrestling is slowly dying because it's catering for a small niche audience that likes performers like Zayn, Bryan, etc.
