It means there's some difficulty going heel credibly because of being face for so long. I've seen Kendrick do it but I don't think I've seen successful heeling from London. I do remember when he cut that promo after he lost the CW title. He was on both Velocity and Smackdown that week; that was like in 2004.
Brian Kendrick cut a heelish promo on the recent Heat taping after they beat Cade and Murdoch saying that Heat was too small for them and that they were going after the tag team titles.
Yeah, I heard about that!
Kendrick is a natural heel and the transition will be fine for him.
it's common knowledge that women serious with wrestling go to Japan for further training right?Usually not at the expense of a TV promotion... not to mention the risk of injury and whatnot. If they wanted to go to Japan and "further their training," they would have done it when the opportunity presented itself. Take Gail Kim, for example. She had some down time between her WWE and TNA runs... and she spent it posing topless. Go figure.
That's because who would spend money to go to Japan and risk injury when they can generate easy income?
Not to be mean you guys but I don't think anyone you sent those vids too is actually going to go to Japan. Most women wrestlers DON'T need to go to Japan. Things run differently in North America and it's just unnecessary. Plus, Japan isn't the end-all-be-all for women's' wrestling; there are some places in the states to go and "better" themselves. It really doesn't work the same way in women's' wrestling as it does in mens' wrestling. Realistically a woman does not need the technical prowess of an Alex Shelley to get booked; all she needs is some sex appeal. For this reason, for the right kinds of women, wrestling is easier to "give notice" in than it is for men. Example: a lot of women who are in the WWE or TNA make it in half the time most men do. Supply and demand; and high turnover rate- plus there's just fewer women in the business anyway. Going to Japan to learn submission wrestling isn't worth it or necessary for most N.A women wrestlers.
Example: Gail Kim knows
she doesn't need to learn submission wrestling to maintain her popularity; she just needs to keep her good side out there; hence the posing topless.
