    Hernandez is a danger at times, and it's not his opponent's fault either. Case in point, Doug Williams' injury from him.

    • Leg Drop Jobber says:

      Not to mention the Power Bomb botch off the apron to Kazarian at the last PPV. I used to back Hernandez, but it's obvious the guy is going to hurt someone.

  2. TwIsTeD_EnEmY says:

    Wow I cant believe Hernandez hasn't been released yet.
    How many people has he injured in the last few years ?:S

    • HolsG says:

      Agreed, i've noticed he hasn't done the border toss since injuring Doug and Shannon. He should at least go to OVW if anything as he does seem to get carried a way. Only happened since he went to mexico too, he was amazing as supermex

      • Philly_Cheese says:

        He was asked not to do it anymore by many in management at TNA, and even a larger number of wrestlers have asked him not to do it. He's hurt a number of people not performing it properly, and from what I can tell has a habit of recklessly dropping people on their neck/head.

    Get off his case. That is a stock standard powerbomb in ROH. nobody got hurt. Joey went to jump up at the wrong time to begin with. Its finished, moving on..

    • pepsilover2008 says:

      How many people are leaving roh for wwe/tna again? Don't you think maybe a powerbomb like that could be why, plus the bigger paychecks.

      • Leg Drop Jobber says:

        How many people, exactly? In the last year, WWE has offered the Briscoe Brothers AND Benjamin/Haas long term contracts. Both declined. I can't think of ANYONE other than Kenny King that left ROH for TNA, lately. What am I missing here?

        • Philly_Cheese says:

          The tag team division is in good state as far as ROH goes… The singles division is another story, there's a few singles wrestlers in ROH that do some risky moves… Some people allow them to do them, which isn't smart.

    • Philly_Cheese says:

      idk what you're looking at but that was a botch… Joey didn't jump at the wrong time, you can tell he went to drop down because he was uncomfortable with the situation. Flat out Hernandez backed him into it and almost injured him. Fact is Hernandez has developed a history of botching high power moves that can potentially injure and end someone's career. He's injured a number of people with the border-toss and was even asked to stop doing it at one point because of that.

      • Peckar says:

        He went too jump like three different times before the eventual powerbomb. Take another look if you don't believe me. Zema Ion sidelined a guy for a year and I don't hear anyone complaining about that.

        • Philly_Cheese says:

          He does an initial jump which you can tell Hernandez doesn't seem prepared for, then joey goes to drop down, of which Hernandez begins forearming him in the back. Joey appears to jump again then Hernandez gets him onto his shoulders and begins leaning to his left, THAT was the point of failure. At that point Joey Ryan had no control over it.

          If you look at Hernandez prior to the powerbomb; he is clearly out of breath, and not in the condition to hold the full weight of someone up properly.

          The reason Ion doesn't get any heat is because it's certain that someone occasionally gets hurt, even the biggest pros have accidentally hurt someone. The big problem is Hernandez has hurt many people. The evidence of that is clear because of the fact that he was told to stop doing the border-toss due to the fact that it seriously hurt a number of people.

          • Peckar says:

            Name me all the wrestlers he has hurt in his career and how long they were out for. You know how many times they wrestle a year and you know shit happens. If he was as dangerous as some of you let on, he would be unemployable.

          • Philly_Cheese says:

            I can't name offhand how many he has injured, all I know for sure is three with Douglas Williams, Shannon, among a few others. He's not considered unemployable but they did pull him from his singles run because he's injured people. He was also asked to stop doing the border toss because he was hurting people while using it.

            I admit shit happens, but when it comes to neck and head injuries it's not something that should be risked… It takes one botch to end someone's career.

          • Peckar says:

            Of course you can't. Because there aren't many. Douglas Williams was one. He was out for a few months. Where did you get 3 from? Shannon? Was out for how long exactly? And a few others chucked in to better suit your argument lol. Like I said, it is all here-say made up by people like you. He was put in Mexico to help with TNA's relationship with AAA. It was suppose to be the start of a talent swap or cross promotion as such. Not the rubbish you are spinning me. The only truth in your argument is he stopped doing the Border Toss because it is dangerous. The move, not Hernandez. If you want to talk about botches look no further than our former Knockouts Champ Botchmesser, you will get at least three a match, without a doubt. Gotta love consistency.

          • Philly_Cheese says:

            The border-toss was and isn't dangerous, he's been the ONLY wrestler in the past decade to be asked to stop using it. You never seen scott hall injury someone with the same move… Most wrestlers don't do it anymore because doing it safely lacks the kind of big move idea that fans look for. Hernandez when he did it simply chucked someone across the ring. Fact is if you can't fucking do it right and do it safely don't do it at all.

          • Peckar says:

            oh god dude. Educate yourself. Scott Hall never did the move. Scott drops them strraight to the mat. Toss is a throw in english. Hence he "throws" them . I have never seen anyone use the move apart from him. Anyway over this conversation. Agree to disagree.

          • Philly_Cheese says:

            Um you clearly know nothing… The border-toss IS a crucifix powerbomb, which was made famous by Scott Hall (outsider's edge/razor's edge). Scott Hall performed the crucifix powerbomb properly, Hernandez did not. Hernandez would simply get them into position and chuck them across the ring with recklessness and neglect for safety.

            When hernandez performed the border-toss the bump wrestlers would take was damaging and extremely dangerous, often landed on the head or neck.

          • Peckar says:

            Different moves tool. Do you know what toss means? For instance, you are a tosser on this subject…

          • Philly_Cheese says:

            Look it up, i don't know what you think the border-toss is but it is the crucifix powerbomb, just with a different name. Just because he calls it the border-toss and scott hall called it something else doesn't make it any less than the same move. Go look it up, it's right on Shawn Hernandez's wiki page. says
            "Border Toss[3][1] (TNA) / Mega Bomb[1] (Independent circuit) (Throwing crucifix powerbomb)"
            throwing crucifix powerbomb, aka crucifix powerbomb, aka high cross powerbomb.

            Good to know you resort to name calling when you're proven wrong.

          • Peckar says:

            (Throwing crucifix powerbomb)" . U said it yourself. lmao get over it. He throws him. Different move numbnutts.

    • HolsG says:

      He's the only one who seems to injure wrestlers with standard moves. He nearly broke Doug and Shannons necks and they're two very experienced wrestlers – imagine what would have happened if the wrestler was green? With Hernandez's experience he should be one of the ones to regularly fight newbies but he can't be trusted

  4. ariesstormjoe says:

    if ryan has got away with injury hes rather lucky then.

    with hernandez i think he was unlucky cos as he picked ryan up he then appeared to lose balance just as he was throwing ryan down. didnt look like the botch caused much effect to the ending of the match. and the wrestlers responded well to the botch. so it didnt look so awkward.

  5. hangers says:

    Joey Ryan's character is getting boring fast, creative really need to work something out for him as being the very weak link in the current chain with Morgan..

    • Philly_Cheese says:

      His character is getting boring because he can't really do the stuff he does best. I seen some of the stuff he did in RKK and was half entertaining. Just I think if he said and did the stuff he did over there TNA's advertisers and the FCC would be breathing down their throats.

  6. Herr_Odditus says:

    Joey Ryan is a fruit cake.

  7. purpleurkel says:

    The Big Organ has a great character. Hernandez tessmachered that powerbomb. He didnt trip, his timing just sucked.

  8. LAwrestling112 says:

    Ryan is stale because he hasnt displayed any wrestling to back up his character…all that hype, for a sleezy character but nothing remotely commendable or remarkable about his ring work…

    • Philly_Cheese says:

      Unfortunately his character is what he does best, but even that is being limited. His character in RKK was one of the best I've seen, and had shock value that made you want to watch him to see what he'd do next. Unfortunately here in the US given the advertisers and the FCC he can't really do that stuff…
