I was at Final X.
Thought it was great.
stands were about half full.
was disappointed in the green/chambo matches... but there were many things at play there...
the thing that got me was: there was no tourney to watch the wrestlers and become their fan. It was like having the super bowl w/o playoffs. it was just weird.
to me, a tourney allows a wrestler to build up steam, etc... momentum. and people see this and get hyped. the crowd would respond.
there were no HUGE moves.(which is probably normal when you have the two best) the crowd reacted to two wrestlers well that weren't JB or JG(though they didn't react to JG verywell, based on his lack of performance). one was when winchester took down leathers for the first time, and the second was when gadsen took snyder off the stage.
I like the format. I think they are trying and I appreciate that. But this might be the result. boring. Yes, the person who has to scratch and claw thru the challenge tourney, gets a break. but the champ gets a month to prepare for them and them only.
