For me it’s Kenny Omega. It feels like I’ve been waiting for years for a good Omega figure. I didn’t think we would unless he joined WWE but we finally have one and it’s quality. The Bucks and an updates Ambrose is great as well.
OOh, yeah, put me down for a possible Nyla figure as well. I'd buy that in a heartbeat.
You know, that reminds me, I went to the January 29th taping of Dynamite in my city (Cleveland), and I have never been more disgusted with people in my life as when Nyla came out to the ring.
So many drunk and/or ignorant idiots screaming transphobic BS, just awful, AWFUL, vitriolic stuff directed at her, I was so insanely infuriated.
Yet, an hour earlier, the same idiots were cheering their asses off at Sonny Kiss during a Dark match.
You know, in my experience, despite the gay rights movement straight up being born of Trans individuals, the gay/lesbian part of the rainbow has come much farther than the trans part. When I was a young child, these things weren't even spoken of. When I got older, it was clear that being gay was bad, but trans was non-existent. Heck, I've spent so much of my life burdened by transphobic propaganda that I've been forcing myself to unlearn a ton of crap that was shoved down my throat during my youth and early adulthood.
To see Nyla doing her thing, whooping all sorts of a** and just all around being awesome? It downright inspirational. We've come a heck of a long way from Shawn Michaels telling Nicole Bass to "Step Off, Mister!". Although, it isn't in the WWE now, is it? It's AEW. As usual, it's the competition that's the pioneers. Has the WWE ever made any real progress on their own after Pat Patterson? On anything good, really? WWE still mostly view LGBT stuff as a ratings draw. Its sad, but true.
I will say this much. I know they have made it very clear that Otis likes women. But I'm telling all of you now, if you go over to the female side of the WWE audience? Otis/Mandy is the best thing going right now. We all adore Otis and feel he should be protected at all costs. I know that it's not going to last. It never does. But there are so many women out there who have lived a lifetime full of Dolphs, and are just waiting for our Otis. For the WWE to have a male character who isn't afraid to show emotion? That is, in fact, pretty cool.
Just some thoughts on the subject.
