Why can't Paul London do his shooting star press?


Guest Oliver

Recommended Posts

I'm aware Mcmahon put a ban on all the top rope moves including the SSP some time ago and that London spoke out against it. Shortly after hearing that Paul London was buried on Velocity, but after some time was pushed with Spanky.

 

The problem is this team is almost useless, they don't have good personality (the announcers saying 'oooh, they're so wierd' achieves nothing) and throwing for the most part only forearms and jumping forearms, the crowd never responds much. If London & Kendrick did their high impact moves I believe the crowds would be more inclined to cheer for them. This in't TNA where there's no shortage of guys doing cool cruiserweight moves, so I think London & Kendrick would do well, particulrly with the Shooting Star Press. The move wa always a big hit for Billy Kidman, if London was to use his as a finisher I think the fans would cheer for this tag team in the hopes of seeing the move. And, after London hit the move to win the match, I think the crowd pop would be much better than the current reactions theyve been getting to their roll up victories.

 

 

This video contains much profanity. Be warned

I also adressed the issue in my new video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IvEKkNDhLc4

Quite simply WWE banned the majority of aerial moves because of the injury risk that goes with them and also because they don't want a lowly cruiserweight outshining a main event talent :D

 

I think London and Kendrick are very good workers but they need a manager to handle the personality side of things,maybe a Daivari ?

Almost every new project they have coming has a character, could they push just ONE tag team lacking personality who have an array of cool moves to recupricate?

Have I seen London do a SSP onto guys standing outside the ring, or would that have been before the ban?

 

The SSP shouldnt be singled out, its as dangerous as any top rope flip move.

WWE is World Wrestling ENTERTAINMENT which means they put appearance,personality and gimmicks above the quality of their wrestling,I'm just surprised WWE did not turn London into a werewolf or something gay.

Its lucky that Londrick as they are are pretty good.

 

To REALLY elevate them, they'd need promo time, or a mouthpiece. But thats the way things are in the WWE.

Please describe what "something gay" would involve?

You did indeed at this years Royal Rumble in the Cruiserweight match.

 

I'd love to see them allow London to use the SSP, he always did it miles better than Kidman.

It's a shame non of the cruiserweights can do anything spectacular anymore. But I agree, London should be able to use the SSP again. Not only would it make their matches that bit more exciting, but could put their team over more, too.

A standing one looks really weak IMO. Unless you're 280+ lbs, it wont hurt that much will it?

 

By that theory so does a standing moonsault. And, in answer to the question, you'd be surprised how much it can hurt!

I include standing moonsaults in that as well. Except Victoria's, because she's bigger than most, if not all, of the other Divas she performs them on, hence the hurt.

 

I know they'd hurt taking them, just from a viewers' perspective, so to speak, just basically dropping from a standing position isnt impressive unless you have some serious bulk.

Turning him into a confused young man who cross dresses and calls everyone 'luvvy' and wears his hair in a perm :D

It's more the acrobatics of the move that the crowd would pop for. It takes a lot of skill to backflip and go forwards at the same time! More than I'll ever have for sure!!:D

Yeah, as is with a lot of "flippy" moves around, that dont do much damage when you look too closely. But then, compared to a Top rope variation of the same move, a Standing one still seems tame, not even very "flippy".

Bit of a stereotypical statement?
