Was he really as good as they say or is it just because he died?

>>
>>1081366

He really was as good as they say he is. He was a terrific worker that had a lot of brilliant matches. Great wrestling ability and psychology. Legit based.
>>
>>1081371
Would he be in the HOF if he hadn't died, and simply faded away like Rey Mysterio?
>>
>>1081395

Not as quickly but he would be a Hall of Famer yes. Also, Mysterio is an absolute lock for future induction.
>>
>>1081399
Rey should be inducted this year but I guess he's not fully retired yet.
>>
>>1081402

They have to stretch it out I guess. He will go in when he hangs up the boots for sure.
>>
See his promo in his feud against rey misterio in 2005.
They make a shitty storyline into a decent one
>>
>>1081404
To me Rey is one of those iconic wrestlers of the past 15 years along with Cena and HBK. Rey milked his injuries a bit but I guess he was just playing the game
>>

watch this promo and it'll answer your questions
>>
>>1081366
He was, and the most brutal part was he was at his very peak when he died, finally performing to his potential with legit the most compelling character in wrestling, about to win the World Title, etc.
>>
Bobby Heenan would praise Eddie as a GOAT during Nitro broadcasts, so no, it's not post-mortem glorification.

You're not exactly making a case against being a child, lad.
>>
>>1081366
He was pretty damn good. The fact that he wasn't able to stick around and ruin his own legacy like a lot have done probably helped.
>>
>>1081366
He really was, thats why he was the A+ players favorite wrestler.
>>
>>1081366
He was better before he became a roid monkey and could still move.

I had no idea Rollins ever did the 3 Amigos post-Shield

>>
>great promo
>great wrestling ability
>moved merch like crazy
>legit connection to the fans for a number of years

He's a bonafide great of wrestling.
>>
>>1081366
Yeah. One of the in-ring GOATs.
The backlash is by people who either didn't see him work his prime, are stupid, or are shitposting.
Angle himself said Eddie was the best he ever stepped in the ring with when he was firing on all cylinders./
>>
>>1082543
I started watching wwe in 2005 not long after he lost the wwe title to jbl, but he still became an instant favorite of mine..

I saw his final year tag teaming with Rey, the whole "i'm your papi" clusterfuck and then his friendship/rivalry with Batista

Eddie was GOAT. no Mexican wrestler since the old "El Santo" has been as good.
>>
>>1081366
He was no Benoit, but he was pretty damn good.
>>
>>1082570
Eddie wasn't mexican, he was from El Paso.

Yea seth sneaks in a few eddie things, the fact jericho let him do the 3 amigos to him speaks volumes because jericho loved eddie.

Not even 18+

12+
>>
>>1082634
Somebody actually pointed out how Seth straightens his body too much on impact, and I can't unsee it.
Near-Eddie-tier Frog splash apart from the planking at the end, tho. Should use it as a face finisher.
>>
as charismatic as rock and austin, amazing in ring ability, connection with the crowd that made him over as fuck, etc. eddie was a once in a lifetime talent. rip.
>>
Speaking of Eddie, anyone remember this match?

Rey has more beloved Mexican wrestlers to kill.

I always though Seth's Frog Splash was more of a High Fly Flow than an Eddie tribute.

Malenko and Eddie could put on four star matches with fucking ease.
>>
>>1081366

He was good for a vanilla midget. I only watched him when he was a midcarder in WCW. I couldn't see him as world title material.
>>
>>1084830

This desu

It's like watching edge mein event

Literally wat
>>
>>1081720
His hip rolls are so bad compared to Eddies, but that frog splash is mint af
>>
>>1084825
Eddie and Dean's feud for the ECW TV title was sweet.
>>
>>1085020
Not nearly as bad as JBL's tho I think that is intentional on his part, seeing as he was a heel and all.
>>
>>1082645
None have matched the perfect frog splash of Art Barr, christ the man had form and skill. Such shit he flushed it all away.

His dad Gori ran the El Paso promotion. Before the camel clutch there was el caballito. Brothers Mando,Chavo and Hector were no slouches either. Mom's brothers were wrestlers in Mexico.
>>
Lie.
Cheat.
Steal.
Repeat, Ese.
>>
Yeah, he was absolutely great. I've been rewatching some of his WCW matches from 1996-1998 and I think I like them more now that I'm an adult. Eddie could do it all!
>>
>>1083324
Not just that, imagine Wrestlers he would have met down the line if he stayed alive.
>We will never see Eddie vs Nakamura
>Eddie vs Dbry
>Eddie vs Seth
>Eddie vs Cesaro
>Eddie vs AJ
>Eddie vs [spoiler]Punk[/spoiler]
>>
>>1081395
He was inducted the year after he died.
>>
>>1088448
>thinking he would still be wrestling if he was alive
He wouldn't have made it past 2008-2009
>>
>>1088871
Pretty sure Taker and Sting are much older than Eddie and they're still going as best they can.
At worst I see Eddie if alive retiring in 2014

eddie would have been in NXT probably in a albert or regal role at the very least. Possibly in a role like nash where he comes back randomly.
>tfw no eddie vs the A+ player

I'm probably the only one.

>>1081366
Eddie's had a couple pretty good face runs but imho, minus the stupid mysterio's kid angle, Eddie's a top ten all time heel.
