you seem like such a romantic. =) how would you propose to a girl?

Haha, is it that obvious? :P

I actually had this conversation, recently, in a jokey way obviously.

I’d probably be a big loser and do all the cliche things; dinner at a nice place, walk on the beach type thing (not an Irish beach, those suck, I assume me and my lovely fiance have moved to a not awful place).

But yeah, a traditional way like on the beach after a nice night out or something.

Sorry, what I meant to say was I thought you meant that the stories aren't as important in indie wrestling because of the matches they put on, I have never seen him el generico wrestle and since I see you post quite a bit about him I am excited to see what happens. I hope he does well even with the story lines because he seems like a great wrestler, we can only wait and see

Indeed anon! It’ll be interesting for sure.

Just a quick question, I know you are quite excited that el generico may have signed for wwe, I don't know him and I'm not even sure if I have correctly spelled his name, well anyway a couple of months ago I asked you what exactly is indie wrestling and what I gathered from the answer is that it has no story's its all about putting in a good match, well do you think el generico will do well being involved in stories or is he better just putting on matches

Did I say that? That’s a bit odd, I wouldn’t really say that - there is tonnes of great story telling on the indies, and Generico has been a part of some of that.

I think he’ll be a great storyteller in WWE. Part of what makes him such a popular wrestler is his ability to get sympathy and connect with a crowd - he’s a great character who is really talented when it comes to making you empathize when he’s in pain. He’s one of the best babyface wrestlers I’ve ever seen and it can really add another level to his matches.

I'm seeing rumors that El Generico won't have a luchador gimmick in WWE.. thoughts?

Anything can happen.

As I said in my PWP column; attitudes are changing in WWE. One thing I didn’t mention is how dudes from the indies have managed to survive without being completely repackaged. Bryan and Claudio are great examples.

I think he would work as a similar-but-different family-friendly luchador but if they go in a totally opposite direction that would be okay too - he’s a talented guy, he might surprise us all.
