Bradley Stelter, a 26-year-old self-described “aficionado” of professional wrestling, lamented in an online forum today that he is “losing patience” with “marks” who “actually believe WWE has any merit compared to to New Japan Pro Wrestling.”
“You people are idoits (sic),” wrote Stelter in a forum on WrestleSkoopz.com, where fans were debating whether Seth Rollins should headline next year’s WrestleMania. “The only PPVs worth watching are NJPW WrestleKingdom and Pro Wrestling NOAH’s Global Junior Heavywieght (sic) Tag League.”
Stelter, who only refers to pro wrestling by its Japanese derivation of “puroresu,” says that WWE doesn’t even measure up to Wrestling International New Generations, a now-defunct promotion that held several events in Tokyo during the early 1990s.
Stelter has spent countless hours online, writing long posts extolling the virtues of “the best wrestlers in the world” — such as Takashi Iiguka, Yujiro Takahashi, and Kenji Fujiwara — and personally attacking anyone who enjoys any aspect of WWE.
Although Stelter claims to “never watch the Fed” (referring to World Wrestling Entertainment), his close friends report that he is a subscriber to the WWE Network and his viewing history is nothing but Total Divas and Camp WWE.
