Believe it or not, it's been a full week since we've last rated someone! Hopefully, you're all continuing to stay safe at your homes; but let's kick off this week with a bang by reminding you all that it is now time to rate another current superstar. I'd like to thank those of you who participated in last week's thread. Remember that all of your votes DO matter, but please just try to be objective. Let's also try to get as many responses here as possible now, and PLEASE try to vote on my poll :eek:

Jeff Hardy ended up being ranked at 7th place in the current section so far. Unfortunately for Jeff, the ratings for his mic skills hurt him drastically. However, the Charismatic Enigma did receive a pretty damn good score for his charisma. It turns out that Jeff now has the 6th highest score for having the best look/presence in the current section. He also now has the 2nd highest score for having the most charisma out of anyone rated so far in the current section.

Here are the updated standings:

Current:

Daniel Bryan: 8.6 (Look/Presence 7.1, In-Ring Ability 9.7, Charisma 9.2, Mic Skills 8.5)
AJ Styles: 8.1 (Look/Presence 7.5, In-Ring Ability 9.7, Charisma 7.9, Mic Skills 7.1)
Brock Lesnar: 8.1 (Look/Presence 9.8, In-Ring Ability 8.8, Charisma 8.2, Mic Skills 5.4)
Drew McIntyre: 8.0 (Look/Presence 9.2, In-Ring Ability 8.1, Charisma 7.2, Mic Skills 7.5)
Randy Orton: 7.9 (Look/Presence 9.2, In-Ring Ability 7.8, Charisma 7.5, Mic Skills 6.9)
RO: 7.7 (9.2, 7.5, 7.3, 6.7)
Seth Rollins: 7.5 (Look/Presence 7.8, In-Ring Ability 8.2, Charisma 6.9, Mic Skills 6.9)
Jeff Hardy: 7.4 (Look/Presence 8.1, In-Ring Ability 7.3, Charisma 8.9, Mic Skills 5.4)
Kevin Owens: 7.4 (Look/Presence 5.3, In-Ring Ability 8.0, Charisma 7.7, Mic Skills 8.6)
Aleister Black: 7.4 (Look/Presence 7.5, In-Ring Ability 8.3, Charisma 7.2, Mic Skills 6.5)
Roman Reigns: 7.4 (Look/Presence 9.2, In-Ring Ability 7.2, Charisma 7.1, Mic Skills 6.0)
John Morrison: 7.3 (Look/Presence 8.2, In-Ring Ability 7.8, Charisma 6.9, Mic Skills 6.1)
AB: 7.2 (7.3, 8.2, 7.0, 6.4)
JH: 6.9 (7.5, 6.7, 8.2, 5.0)

Sammy Guevara: 6.8 (Look/Presence 6.3, In-Ring Ability 7.3, Charisma 7.1, Mic Skills 6.5)
SR: 6.3 (6.8, 7.2, 5.6, 5.5)
Ricochet: 5.8 (Look/Presence 6.5, In-Ring Ability 7.9, Charisma 5.3, Mic Skills 3.3)
R: 5.1 (5.9, 6.8, 4.6, 3.0)

Women:

Asuka: 8.2 (Look/Presence 8.8, In-Ring Ability 9.2, Charisma 8.9, Mic Skills 5.9)
Bayley: 6.1 (Look/Presence 6.5, In-Ring Ability 7.2, Charisma 6.1, Mic Skills 4.6)

Cruiserweight:

Angel Garza: 7.7 (Look/Presence 7.8, In-Ring Ability 8.0, Charisma 8.2, Mic Skills 6.6)

Today we will rate Shinsuke Nakamura since he won the previous poll. This is your turn to vote. Make sure to keep up!

Please set each quality in this order (Look/Presence, In-Ring Ability, Charisma, Mic Skills), so it'll be easier to count your votes :)

NOTE: If you feel like you missed out on a previous rating thread of a superstar, then it is NOT too late!! I am still willing to count any of your votes for any old rating threads from this year. You folks have until the END OF THIS DECEMBER to do this; so just be sure to let me know which old rating thread you want me to include your vote in, and just be sure that it's from a thread in 2020. If you even feel like bumping up any of my older rating threads, then go right on ahead! My rankings are based off the MOST UPDATED standings. The MORE votes that are included to ALL of this, the MORE accurate the results will be. PLEASE MAKE SURE TO VOTE ON MY POLLS TOO :D

Edit: Don't forget that the poll is MULTIPLE CHOICE.

Shin does a distinct look, that's for sure. That's a positive for him but whether or not he has a strong "presence" I'm not so sure. He isn't someone who walks into an arena and demands your attention. In ring I would have definitely given him more like a 9 in his prime but it's years without anything substantial for him so I'm not going to bump up his grade based on how good he was 2-5 years ago. Charisma is his strong suit imo. He has a character that got over big even though I'm not sure anyone could say exactly what his character is. He has a natural charisma. In terms of mic work, I tend to just look at that as meaning how good of a talker someone is. Despite being charismatic, Shin is average or maybe below average with his talking. I don't dock points on people just because they can't (or don't) cut an articulate promo in English, because I don't think you need to have a good command of language to be a good talker necessarily (you can see I gave Asuka a good rating in this even though I hardly understand anything she says). But Shin has just always been pretty uninspiring when he gets on the stick, so it's a low mark for him there.

The way he was described before WWE, you'd think he was the coming of Christ.

So this means you'd give Jesus higher ratings than those? Kinda surprising tbh :WOW

Just saying this mythical Nakamura is more non existent.

Especially after I've seen more of his Japan work.

Presence - 5 Looks like a spastic Michael Jackson impersonator.

In Ring - 7 - I like his striking.

Mic Skills - 1 - This guy has been here for how many years and still hasn't improved his english enough to cut even an average promo. Terrible.

Charisma - 4 - I don't get his schtick at all.

One good thing I'll always say about Shinsuke is that he consistently has the best superkick selling in the business today

I thought his “No Speak English” stuff that Chris mentioned earlier in the thread was hilarious, but to each their own

Added Impact Wrestling Slammiversary to the Prediction Schedule - as with Fyter Fest, if the show is recorded before hand then the title will not be defended at it.
Gonna be watching that new season tonight when I get off work.

Right now, the chat doesn't seem to be connected. :cudi so when the show starts, post in the thread until we know or not. But it's good to stay in it until we know.
