Superstar Spotlight: Razor Ramon
« on: December 30, 2017, 03:38:24 AM »
Alright, here it is the return of Superstar Spotlight! Just for a refresher, if you are curious about ANY superstar send me a message and I'll spotlight your request. This will include Revolution superstars as well. I will also allow for previously done superstars to be revisited as well. This game changes with every set, so I have no issue with repeated superstars. That being said here is our next superstar.


Please keep those requests coming. Today's is another 'request' in Razor Ramon!!!!!



1.)  How viable is this superstar?
2.)  Is there a Superstar Specific Card that you'd like to spotlight?  
3.)  How have you built said superstar?  How did it work out?
4.)  How well does the Superstar fare in whichever format you built them in be it VC/VAA/NXT/VR/Non-Virtual 
5.)  Final Thoughts on this Superstar?

1.)  How viable is this superstar?
The build I went with was absolutely viable. His ability allows him some excellent packing options.

2.)  Is there a Superstar Specific Card that you'd like to spotlight? 
His Superstar specific support is really strong. But for me, it's the toothpick - especially as it's RMS now. Opening the game by stripping away TWO key cards? It's not broken but it's very strong. It's also why I went with the Irish whip ACE with lumberjacks setup. Most people upon seeing that setup will (if they have any sense) will search out as many ACE reversals as possible. Razor sees that and says "bye bye ACE reversals" or bye bye "Don't be a douchebag". Ha!

3.)  How have you built said superstar?  How did it work out?
I built a very gimmicky build involving Summer slam Paperview event with 2x lumberjack match. It's susceptible to disruption but if you're not prepared - you will be wrecked! It still works without the lumberjacks though as uses bairhugs to attempt to get good use from his ability. Mean gene and classic moves as backup too.
4.)  How well does the Superstar fare in whichever format you built them in be it VC/VAA/NXT/VR/Non-Virtual
He seems to fair well. I only play virtual classic though. I'm sure, his packing strengths give him a lot of versatility for any format.

5.)  Final Thoughts on this Superstar?
I'm biased because Razor Ramon was one of my all time favourite wrestlers. But even so, he's a strong deck. Bash and chain shots with manager interferes. Heel and face reversals? He has so many strong build options available. Gotta rank as upper tier surely? Irish whip - poke - overturn 10 is hilarious and also slightly disgusting. Haha
