I must say, in the history of TNA there have been a lot of amazing wrestlers that have come and go. Usually when someone brings up "TNA Original" names such as AJ Styles, Chris Sabin, and Daniels are the names that pop up. But I've been looking back at the history of TNA, and I've noticed that Abyss is just as important as the characters mentioned. If one remembers his monster's ball matches, his bare-wired match with Sabu, these matches helped to bring in the hardcore fans to TNA. Abyss at 6'8 should be considered one of the best big man in not just TNA, but in the professional wrestling business. I mean for his size, he has shown to be agile, strong, and has given some great matches with the likes of AJ Styles, Mick Foley, and Jeff Hardy.
Then he became Joseph Park, At first I wasn't fond of the idea. But after awhile I've grown to actually like the Joseph Park character. Abyss has given the Joseph Park character a personality, a loveable one at that. Someone that the fans can get behind. It shows how truly talented he Abyss is, to switch from being this monster associated with thumbtacks, and tables, to this lawyer character whom when I watch wrestle I almost forget that this use to be Abyss.
I was watching his past match with Hardy on the impact a week ago, and I absolutely loved when he black-hole slammed the ref. I thought his facial expressions was absolutely amazing. I think Joseph Parks is the best character in the company, and I'm excited to see the character continues to transform.
Abyss is one of my favorite wrestlers in TNA history. I think he is on of the greatest big men in the wrestling business in general. And in a sense he kind of reminds me of Mick Foley (My favorite wrestler of all time) in the fact he can turn into this monster. Putting people through thumbtacks, and putting himself through harm. But in a second, change into a loveable character that knows how to get the whole crowd behind him. To me that shows real talent.
Thoughts on the monster Abyss/Joseph park.
