I went to E3 a number of years ago and Scott Steiner was there signing autographs.  He had two booth babes with him who both had implants that were each the size of a school globe.  You couldn't not look.   What was weirder is that his arms were larger than the implants.  I looked it up and people say his arms were somewhere between 21" and 24".  His arms were even more unsettling.   I'd seen massively large implants before, but I hadn't seen synthoid arms before.   I didn't know where to look.  The whole thing was very very unsettling.

They tried to make Rey Mysterio, Jr. a regular wrestler, meaning they had him wrestle with the heavyweights and not just the other undersized acrobatic wrestlers. That never worked for me because it destroyed the illusion that wrestling could be real. It's just not realistic to see a 160 pound guy beat a 300 pounder. His tricks were amazing, but he would just bounce off the bigger guys. That doesn't mean that a cruiser weight division can't work. The smaller guys don't seem larger than life from the balcony and that's what holds them back.

My favorite wrestling things were The Road Warriors entrance and the Four Horsemen's interviews. The actual wrestling was secondary for me. I watched a lot of TBS wrestling. There were more actual wrestling moves and holds. I remember Flair being lauded for working on one body part for half an hour. Watching two guys lie on the mat for 15 minutes wasn't exactly thrilling. But I did develop an appreciation for a perfectly executed arm-bar.

That's pretty cool.  Good luck to him.  Though the main roster doesn't seem to know how to use little flippy guys all that well, there's definitely a place for guys with that type of athleticism in NXT and abroad with Lucha Underground/NJPW/PWG.

competing (I think even in the event when he tore it), and was known for his incredibly high energy/enthusiasm whether injured or not, it's understandable the entertainment world might come calling.

I haven't watched wrestling since the original Wrestlemania, but create a character like Black Panther for him and its marketing gold.
