i love gabriel because i'm still a mark for shit like the 450. that's why i love bourne too. shooting star press is insane. those moves are so difficult and look so sick.

Justin Gabriel is so much more than a high flyer - he is really good on the mat as well.
Never WHC level, but midcard for sure - tag champs with Kidd when he's back.

Speaking of TAKA, I'm watching New Japan and he manages Lance Archer and David Hart Smith as Davey Boy Smith Jr.

just watched iced3 free on demand and watched a match between Kane and Mankind.... you know i gotta be honest, is there a chance that mankind/foley is a bit overrated when it came to his wrestling skills? i dont really recall anything he did that was out of this world

I think for what Foley may have lacked as far as in ring ability goes, he more than made up for with his ability to tell great stories with his work. His matches with Taker and his match with HBK in 1996 were all good. I also really dug the street fight and HIAC matches he had with Triple H.

what made Foley so good was that his gimmick just worked more so than almost anyone I can remember. The insane, deranged Mankind from the 96 era where he feuded with HBK (mind games) and Taker (boiler room brawl, buried alive, HIAC) was done so perfectly and is one of the best characters ever. The rats, the boiler room, pulling out his hair, the rocking back and forth, his music, the screaming, just everything was so good.

i don't think anyone will ever claim that foley was the most skilled technical wrestler. dude was a brawler and willing to take insane bumps, but what made him great was his storytelling ability.

This. I'm reading his book at the moment, and in it, he mentions how he's not a great wrestler, and doesn't have many offensive moves, but he's willing to take any insane amount and insanely dangerous bumps in order to entertain. He also gets great color at the drop of a dime. I loved Foley as a kid, and I don't care how cliche it is, Taker and Mankind Hell in a Cell was the most epic match I'd ever seen as a child and to this day is still my favorite match ever. And I don't really think that Taker had TOO much to offer in the ring either, other than great athleticism for someone his size

the funny thing about the HIAC match is that if you take out all the dead time spent making sure foley wasn't dead, the match was insanely short, and besides the 2 ridiculous spots not all that much happened. yet it's remembered as a total classic, and foley is the main reason why.

Anyone ever looked at the comment section on any articles on the main WWE website? Some of the people that post on there aren't very high up the food chain, to put it nicely.

The matches Foley had with Vader back in WCW were great. They pretty much just beat the shit out of each other.
