I was never enamoured by Japanese wrestlers-The Great Kabuki, Mr Saito, Mr Fuji, and Yokozuna-until recently. They were usually quite mean. Mr. Fuji’s cruelty had a mesmerizing quality to it and Kabuki with his Asian mist had some kind of allure. But I will concede to the fact that their in-ring skills were usually pretty cool.
However, what they had bows before the rainbow hued styles of Asuka and Shinsuke Nakamura. Asuka is a sorceress in the ring with spellbinding moves. She is electric! Shinsuke has very strong magnetism. Even though I believe he can be quite stereotyped, he had an award winning bout with AJ styles at the last Wrestlemania. He was brilliant! He also won the 2018 Royal Rainbow and has been NEXT champion. He is not the most talented dude but his CHARISMA is undeniable!
His entrance during Wrestlemania was absolutely enchanting with Nita Strauss on the guitar accompanied by a violin orchestra. Breath-taking stuff! His signature winning move, Kinshasa, has a charming ring to it too.
Charisma is something that champions usually have. The greatest champions in WWE have all had it. The Rock, Bret “the Hitman” Hart, Hulk Hogan, Ultimate Warrior, John Cena, Jeff Hardy, Ric Flair, Lita, etc.
Even outside wrestling, it is a must have quality. Ken Norton and “Smokin” Joe Frazier were great boxers but none came close to Muhammad Ali-The Greatest! His charisma was beyond words. It is the same characteristic that distinguished a boxer like Sugar Ray Leonard.
Charisma is a quality that most U.S Presidents cannot dispense with. Obama had it in spades.
Many times, charisma is a difference maker when it comes to being championship material or not.
For the Christian, it is quite noteworthy, imperative actually, to know that the Greek root word for the anointing, CHRISM/CHRISMA, and grace, CHARIS, are all related to CHARISMA. Amazing innit?? Totally!
