All I'll say is I know an awful lot of his closest friends who helped him in his later years. He did awful things but he was a human as much as anyone else.


Or because they they were good at something I happen to like, that in the grand scheme of things is pretty trivial

Why is Dynamite Kid hated so much? What has he done?
There's all sorts of stories of him doing morally questionable stuff. Jacques Rougeau for example has been quite vocal about his actions. There's worse stuff about him too reportedly. Edit: **** it, the thing I was thinking about in terms of worse stuff was him breaking some woman's leg for an insurance pay out. The video below (2:40 mark) shows him admitting it.

I had the impression that the idea of a "smart mark" was a recent thing, but here's Brian Pillman basing half a promo around it.

I don't know, I guessed the recent-ish indy stuff made it a thing. It makes sense that it was in usage back then however. That all said, watching Pillman makes me feel Dean Ambrose is a bit forced.

last year's Rumble match was different from the previous ones anyway, almost all the participants bar Masahito Kakihara were active wrestlers, so if the plan is to just put the same guys in the NEVER 6 Man match I don't mind it...as long as Cheesey and Liger's music plays
