I feel like BJ Whitmer is one of those really good but underrated wrestlers. I haven’t seen a ton of his work, but from what I have seen, there’s never been a bad match. Plus the way he can get a crowd to absolutely hate him is pretty impressive!
i know he’s shaved bald nowadays, but for some reason it never looked right when I drew him that way. So here’s a little bit younger BJ Whitmer haha.
I’ve always liked Jimmy Jacobs, so here’s a new drawing of him. Wish he was still wrestling, but I’m glad he’s got a backstage job with the WWE. He’s too smart not to be doing something there!
When the WWE announced Nigel was coming in as an announcer, I was excited. He was one of my first favorites in ROH when I started watching it. So when he was announced as coming in, I started watching some old matches online…Man, it’s a shame he had to retire from the ring so early, because Nigel was so good. I got to see him live as champion a bunch of times, and he never disappointed. One of my favorite matches was against El Generico. You knew Generico wasn’t going to be the one to end his long title reign, but the match was still great.
I think the biggest shame about him not being able to wrestle any more is that both Daniel Bryan and Nigel McGuinness are both in the WWE right now and neither one can wrestle. God damn, that would have been great to see. I got to see that live in ROH once or twice and it would have been amazing to see it again.
The first time I remember seeing Kyle O’Reilly it was at a Ring Of Honor show. I noticed Davey Richards in the crowd staring at him in a way that looked like he was thinking “you better not fuck this up kid.” I’m sure that’s not what he was thinking, but he certainly had that look to him. So I figured “well I guess I should pay attention here.” Turns out he was pretty good, and he has only gotten better. I’m a fan of his, and I think we’re all wondering where he’s going to end up.
Okay, I’ll admit I’ve only seen one match of Dragon Lee’s. it was the three way at Final Battle vs Scurll and Ospreay, and that was my favorite match of the show. I know most people prefer the Bucks/Briscoes, but I’m not really a fan of the Bucks so I didn’t get into that one. But yeah, I liked what I saw and I’d like to see more of what Dragon has in store down the road.
Quite a while ago, I started a drawing of Dalton Castle. I had said I wasn’t feeling it so I scrapped it and said I’d try again another time. Well I finally did. I know,60 weeks,why the hurry, me? I 100% support a Dalton Castle ROH title run. I hope 2017 is the year of the peacock!
I think Christopher Daniels is probably the best wrestler that’s never been a full time WWE wrestler. Not that it’s something everyone has to do though…he’s done pretty damned well for himself without the machine being behind him. All that being said, how cool would it be to see him mixing it up in NXT?
So I know I said I was gonna try something new with this one, and I did! But it just looked like my normal stuff, only unfinished. So I didn’t really want to stick with it. But just to show what I did, that version is below .
