Only saw Redman live the one time, but I was impressed with his intensity. The jacked up guys are always awe-inspiring for the first minute, but his physicality stretched on for the whole match. Everything looked like he meant it. His facials and selling were top notch, proper WWE 2000-capacity-or-70000-capacity quality. You can really see the difference, sitting in the social clubs, between the people who have been through the WWE system (Mickie James had these qualities when I saw her last week) and all the TNA lads working indie mains (Magnus, Abyss, that one that's like Zack Ryder but isn't)H.U.S.T.L.E. wrote:Couple of questions for those who follow the UK scene a little closer...
Does anyone know if there's truth to Zack Sabre Jr. saying he's moving to California? Or is that just playing to the Reseda crowd? It certainly seems like between his Japan commitments and his increased presence in places like PWG and EVOLVE, it might make a lot of sense.
What are people's thoughts on guys like Joel Redmond & Martin Stone? I wasn't too familiar with them prior to coming to NXT, and while they never really got much of a chance to shine, I thought some of their leaked promos were pretty solid. Seems like they're fairly regular around the UK scene, but guys like Ospreay, Scurll, Haskins & Havoc seem to be the bigger names at the moment. Where do most people see those kinds of guys in the pecking order?
EDIT: I see that Stone pretty much worked exclusively in the US in 2015, so maybe that's why I haven't seen his name pop up much on the UK scene. Doh.
It was a solid mid-card bout and left my mate convinced that Dirty Dick Riley was one of the best he'd ever seen (lol).
It'd be nice if Redman got a look in PROGRESS/PCW. Maybe he just prices himself out? Maybe he is priced out by virtue of living by himself near the sea and would cost more as expenses cannot be mitigated by filling the car with other lads? Maybe he's just with All Star all the time. All I know is if I had an indie fed, I'd want his image on every poster.
