About to try and throw some threads out for MLW guys. Why? I'm a big silly boy who gets satisfaction from their TV which is easily accessibly on YouTube.
Hammerstone was always a bland looking, but not entirely bland wrestling large lad from Cali. Watched him in PCW and there were matches of his I thought were LEGIT great. Now he's paired clear physical ability with a character that matches his physique and athletic ability. I don't know if I've seen him have a blow away great match this year but he's been put in position to wrestle his way because of the "constraints" of TV wrestling. He doesn't need to go out there and have 15+ minute matches. Go and watch the Kotto Brazil match from MLW Kings of Colisseum where you have Kotto Brazil look tremendous as the underdog who is completely outmatched but isn't here to get steamrolled. Kotto is GREAT at bumping in the match but Hammerstone's selling is what makes it compelling. Not just because of Brazil, the match feels like what I was often told CWF-MA, some throwback feeling TV wrestling with a modern twist.
Then you have the match against Davey Boy Smith Jr. that has him in a totally different dynamic but his selling still shines through.
Need to watch more, luckily it is rather accessible.
