Dolph - I run hot and cold with ole Dolph. Really liked him from 2009 to 2013. Was a bright spot during a really dark time in WWE. He was one of the best parts of kind of a weak roster from an in ring standpoint and got lost in the shuffle a bit as they added better workers. Still can be good in the ring and had a few highlights post World Title run like The Miz feud and Survivor Series 2015, but I don't like him on the mic at all and he seems like he'd rather be elsewhere at times. His promos in the Rusev feud was particularly obnoxious and he was one of my least favorite guys in the company around that time. I'd like him with a mouthpiece like Vickie again if he's going to stick around.

Will Ospreay - I haven't seen a lot, only around five or six matches. While he's obviously very gifted and athletic, he needs someone to tell him to tone it down. Not even with his moveset just his facial expressions and overall goofiness. I think someone like Regal or an agent in WWE would be really good for him. He's so young that eventually he could turn into a worker I really love, but right now he's not for me.

Typhoon/Tugboat/Earthquake - Awful. I usually get behind fat guys, but Uncle Fred was always boring.

Prince Iukea - Also awful. Regal, Mysterio, and Jericho struggled to get anything worthwhile out of him. No charisma either. The Artist could've been a fun stupid gimmick but he brought nothing to it.

Giant Baba - Awkward, but he brings a smile to my face no matter the era. Might be one of my personal favorite workers ever. Has such an unreal charisma and connection to the crowd that I don't care if his moves look weak. The old man Baba run against the pillars with Hansen in 92-94 or so is so much fun. When he was younger in the 60's and 70's, he could really go even in longer matches. Honestly, I'd spend a day watching nothing but Baba matches over a lot of other all time workers.

Same as the first thread, let's try giving opinions on another random 5:

Dolph Ziggler:
Will Ospreay:
Prince Iaukea:
Giant Baba:
Going to Michigan State-Notre Dame this weekend. Out there visiting and my friend's dad is a MSU season ticket holder. My first college football game and glad I saved myself for a big rivalry game instead of busting my college football cherry attending a dumb FCS game at UMaine. No offense, Harley.

So this is a thing that's happening.  In 2017.   I think I may have to go for the train wreck appeal.

Ended up winning $7 in the 20K Contest. Finished 316 of 11,764.

Also smoked 909 in our H2H: 138.94 to his 80.92. Rode Drew Brees, Ty Montgomery, Chris Hogan, and Jay Ajayi despite -1 from the Jaguars D.

I want your line up every week so I can take $5 from each of my brothers.

Jericho is hosting a cruise next year:
What a disgusting promo from Jinder. Whoever wrote and okayed that should be fired.

Should have sung the lyrics himself. That would have made the whole bit.

Also hilarious that the DX entrance still has strippers in it.

Edit: Tough to mock a superficial entrance over in-ring talent of Shawn Michaels, who was probably better in the last few years of his career than most people ever are in their entire careers in the ring.

Gotta echo most of the sentiments as I ended up really enjoying It. Thought Eddie, Richie, and Bev were the standouts for the kids. Bill was okay, but I think I prefer Jonathan Brandis' performance from the miniseries. Ben had a funny running gag, but didn't do a lot but give out exposition. The other two didn't really matter. Henry Bower was a bit generic sociopath at times, but that was a minor flaw.

Bill Skarsgard was great. Thankfully, he did a completely different performance from Tim Curry's amazing performance and was pretty terrifying at times. The CGI really didn't bother me all that much.

Spoiler: show
Projection scene was the most effective scare scene for me in a long time. I saw it coming from the commercials but it still wrangled me in. A couple of the bits in the abandoned house got me as well.

Andy Muschietti's directing here was fantastic. I had low expectations based on Mama being fine but kind of forgettable. He nailed the visual style and feel I imagined the book looking like.

I actually want to see it again despite the long runtime. It was very entertaining and was very well paced as well. I'd go around 8/10.
