    Yeah mate, I'm a massive fan of Eric Young. Marked out when he won the Television and X Division belts to be honest.

    To true BDC. Loved his moments where he would challenge, "TV Stars" for the title.

    Most entertaining wrestler in the business, period. My beard is almost reaching EY-status. Love the angle with him thinking he's dating "ODB". Is it just me or has she cleaned up a bit lately and looking kinda bangable?

    EY is awesome! He's also a really good wrestler! Although he's used as a bit of a comedy wrestler for TNA I think his gimmick definitely defines him and he makes up for it in the ring. I really liked it when he turned heel and attacked Jeff Jarrett- showed a new side to him! Hope he gets the push he deserves.

    He's been the best thing in Impact Wrestling since BFG, and yes that includes Robert Roode, James Storm and Austin Aries.

    Re: The Eric Young Appreciation Thread

    Eric Young is great! He's a very talented and exremely versatile personality. Just look how many character changes he's gone through in TNA and how well he's played each part.

    I think it's absurd that people actually think Santino Marrella does the comedy role better and it's even more absurd that people actually think EY is copying Santino. Eric Young was a comedy character back in 2004 when he was in Team Canada, played the part all through 05 and 06 until he went off on his own. Santino's comedy act came around in 2008 so how could EY be copying his act? Santino is just a silly Italian stero-type that mis-pronounces everything, it's so 1 note. Eric Young has much more versatility and is 10 times better in the ring.

    Re: The Eric Young Appreciation Thread

    I'd argue it's equally absurd to keep up these WWE v TNA debates in 2012. Nobody here that I know of say Santino is better, so what's the point in bringing it up? They're different characters with different appeals. You don't need to bury one to appreciate the other. Though for what it's worth, even though I like Santino, I do agree Young is better, I just don't see a point in it. Unless it's Davey Richards being buried

    Santino is miles beyond Eric Young but that doesn't mean Young isn't funny.

    Anyway, Eric Young stole from me. He won't admit to it, but the evidence is all I need.

    Fair point. People don't make that silly comparison on this site so there was no need for me to do it. They do play very different roles and don't warrant a comparison in the first place. They're both good at what they do.

    Eric Young is the man. I mean, if you think about it currently, he gave people a reason to care about ODB.

    Re: The Eric Young Appreciation Thread

    EY is far better than one note Santino. I'm still not an EY fan, but he's funny from time to time. His valentine's commercials with ODB are okay.

    Does anyone think Nick Dinsmore will debut as Eric Young's cousin or something?
