Paid Members tiger_rick Posted August 24, 2016 Paid Members Share Posted August 24, 2016 Funny this comes up today because I sat watching Smackdown, listening to AJ Styles brilliantly delivered but fucking dreary promo and hating that every promo comes from the same writing team and they all sound the same. I'm not going to go off on "scripted promos" because if you watch WCW or TNA for more than a minute - you will see a very good case for scripted promos because of the absolute deluge of dribbling shit. However, we live in an age where there are few great promos. The decent promo guys do nothing memorable. Beyond Cena's rap on The Rock and CM Punks pipebomb, I can barely think of a memorable promo this decade. Because they're all the same. And they lack character and realism. Well delivered, well meaning but that's it. As for anyone getting wet over The Miz - forget it. Because the stuff he does week in and week out isn't anything like this. And what a fucking shame that is because this is magnificent. And this is what wrestling should be. Not the passion and the aggression in every promo but the heart and the realism of the guy speaking. Superb stuff. But too rare. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
