Hello there my fellow enigmas, and welcome to another edition of Oh The Humanity! For those of you that have missed past installments of the series, it’s fairly simple.
Each week, I take a different topic in the world of Pro Wrestling, be it a storyline, a wrestler, or anything else. I then give my feelings on the topic before placing it onto the famous OTH Scale. Now you’re probably asking yourselves “What’s the OTH Scale?”. Well, the scale will basically gives each topic a rank from 1-10, a 1 being something good and a 10 being something that makes you scream “OH THE HUMANITY!”
When the match was originally announced, many fans were quick to remind everyone that we had already seen this match hundreds of times already. These same fans complained that they wanted to see something different rather than something they can search on YouTube.
I am not one of those fans.
While Styles and Daniels have certainly gone to war before, each war has been bigger and better than the last.
The last time we saw the two square of, it was at Destination X, where they put on one of their best matches ever, easily stealing the show. The trust they share in the ring was clearly showcased, especially when Styles sent Daniels crashing through a table to win the match.
That trust is something you can only find in the best of rivalries. From Austin vs Rock to CM Punk vs Cena, every memorable match put on in wrestling is because of trust. Personally, I’d feel a whole lot better about being thrown off a cell if I trusted who was throwing me.
Styles and Daniels are one of the few wrestlers in the business that have that much trust in each other, allowing them to do insane things in their matches.
In wrestling, it’s different to take something we have seen before and add a new twist to it, but Christopher Daniels and AJ Styles have managed to do it. Each time they put on a match, it seems better than the last, as they are constantly adding new spots and stories into their matches.
So yes, Daniels vs Styles isn’t the most original match, but it is just one of those things that works.
It’s almost like a great movie. No matter how many times I see Empire Strikes Back, it never gets old.
While AJ and Daniels may not be as awesome as Han and Skywalker, they certainly make a good run at it, which is why I’m looking forward to the final match between two of the greatest wrestlers today.
OTH Scale: 2/10
Expect another classic between these two long time rivals, especially considering it’s the last time we have a chance to witness it.
