Are they the Austin and Rock of our generation?
>>
>>2993786
Yes.
>>
>>2993786
unironically hell yeah!
>>
>>2993786
Austin and Rock weren't good wrestlers.
>>
>>2993804
And Austin and Rock made one company into a billion dollar empire.
>>
>>2993804
austin was a good wrestler and then owen broke it
>>
Naito is Austin. Okada is the Rock.
>>
>>2993804
but they drew money so
>>
>Main event feud of the second place promotion
>Overly-confident, charisma for days, athletic champion picked by the company
>Edgy, supposed heel, fan favorite with a chip on his shoulder after leaving another company
>inexplicable chemistry together
>recognized as two of the best in the game
>Battle for the ages

The parallels are pretty uncanny. Are we seeing history repeat itself?
>>
>>2993946
Considering how WWE is following the same route as 99-2000 WCW, I think so.
>>
>>2993786
Si.
>>
Is it true that Naito & LIJ are NJPWs biggest domestic draws?
>>
>>2993804
Both were great wrestlers, Rock chose to do sports entertainign sells because that's what the audience wanted to see, and Austin had his shit broken by a spotmonkey.

Austin, Meltzer, Lance Storm, a lot of people whose opinions matter more than you consider them great in-ring wrestlers.
>>
>>2993969
if you include shirts then yeah probably but draw wise its Okada
>>
>>2993969
Yeah. The Japanese bought tickets to wrestlekingdom and dominion to see Tanahashi/Naito, Omega doing flips around Okada until Okada decides to win was just a bonus
>>
>>2993969
>>2994027
Nobody gives a SHIT about omegetty.
>>
>>2994030
based 6.25 star GOAT absolutely workin ya into a seethin splutterin little mess of a "human bein"

literally zero pay needed for based KENNY to live in ya head
>>
>>2994034
The only people who think Omega is good are the ones who don't actually watch NJPW and only hear about it from meltzer soundbites uploaded to reddit

Yeah, working me into never watching his matches and keeping me from making the plunge and subscribing to New Japan World. Fucking based amirite?
>>
>>2993804
Agreed. Austin was a good brawler post injury and Rocky was a great entertainer. But Omega and Okada are just on another level as wrestlers.
>>
>>2994049
top kek

They are the Taka and Brian Christopher of your generation if we're using measuring sticks.

They are not Stars....They are not mainstream.

Maybe in Japan. Austin and Rock were recognized worldwide even by non-watchers.
>>
>>2994123
Stone cold Steve Whostin?
>>
No.

Neither is the draw that either Rock or Austin was or frankly still is.

Austin and Omega are comparible in ring while Okada is the best in ring. Rock is the best on the mic.

I'd say they're comparible neither Okada or Omega is anywhere near the dome puller or have the charisma of Austin or Rock.
>>
>>2993786
No.
Rock and Austin were megastars. Just like every wrestler nowadays these guys are nobodies.
>>
>>2993786
Literally who?

its better than Austin-Rock because that is actually wrestling, Austin/Rock was McHitler's
"Sports Entertainment"
>>
Okada/Naito are fuck off BC cucks
>>
>>2994225
Rock sure but Austin hates being called a sports entertainer, hes a wrestler
>>
>>2993786
Austin and Rock were draws.

Nobody even knows these literal whos except for Gaytzer and a few weebs.
>>
>>2993804
Takes more than muh movez to be a good wrestler
>>
>>2993804

Rock was fine and kept improving until he left, but Austin was a great wrestler. I also think there's not another wrestler who imbues his work with his character as much and as well as he did.
>>
Austin and Rock could draw.
>>
Yes
