That is the perception of him from people who don't like anything but WWE. But he puts over Roman all of the time as being really good when most people online hate him. And he was early on pointing out when Cena got good in 2008 or so. And he loves NXT. So it's not a company it's the style. He likes big, crazy athletic matches. And WWE is sparingly on those most of the time. But New Japan does them several times every show.

That is crazy that he's 50 and better than when he was 30 and one of the top 5 best wrestlers in the world right now.

OK cool, that's interesting. I prefer strong style type matches but if they did that every night in WWE they'd be real beat up with their schedules. I suppose you could have Joe,AJ tear it up but that shortens their careers in the long run. Plus if you see too much of the same it lessens the impact. When Scott did the Frankensteiner back in the day that was huge. Same as when RVD and Sabu were doing their thing but now its par the course. So whilst the Strong Style is preferred it has to be in moderation unless you give them time off to recover.
