Leading into Wrestlemania X-7 Stone Cold Steve Austin would utter the words "You've got the WWF title, and I want it. I need to beat you Rock, I need it more than anything you could ever imagine." in a promo with The People's Champion. It showcased the intensity and sheer desire Austin had in winning the belt. It's literally all that mattered to him at the cost of everything else. The following match is considered to be one of the greatest in wrestling history, and in one short promo and one glare from Austin in this segment he sold the story of how badly he needed to win. Sami Zayn is showcasing that same force of will leading into his "Road to Redemption" on NXT and on last Thursday's show he had his "I need it more than anything you could ever imagine" moment and his greatest promo to date when calling out current champion Adrian Neville.
The Little Things
Stills obviously aren't the ideal way to convey the ideas of any art form that has lots of movement, but I find they highlight and clarify specific moments very well that otherwise might get lost in motion.
Be sure to watch the match, especially since seeing everything in motion will give you a better idea of what I mean.
