Lol, you sir are my hero.

I think his ability is way too powerful.  The one antic per turn restriction isn't much of a restriction at all since most people don't play more than one per turn anyway.  Combined with his 12 hand size and he's just broken.

Since Jeet Kune Do is the way of the intercepting fist where you "block" your opponent's attack with your own attack instead of just a straight block, perhaps Bruce's ability or a storyline should be able to use maneuvers as reversals or, more likely, his reversals should do more damage.

I think The One Inch Punch should be a low fortitude Mean (like F:1 D:8) since the point of it is that he can perform it with little preparation.

Don't have time/energy to flesh this out right now, but how about a Storyline called "The Father of Mixed Martial Arts" where the new ability rewards you for having a variety of maneuver types in your Ring.

Also, perhaps Bruce's original ability can have something like "your reversals have Target: Leg" since Bruce liked using his sidekick to the knee as a counter.

I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!

The only problem is: I don't think the text would apply too often?!?!?!?!

..and it just seems too simple for some reason???  Maybe if you put a restriction on it...  Like "Follow-up: Card:" or something?!?!?!?!

I would have to disagree with the "Follow-up" suggestion.  Requiring you to do something beforehand would kind of defeat the purpose of it being a 1-inch punch =P

I think a F:1 D:7 Core with a beneficial ability is way too powerful.  Either make it a Mean at D:8 so that it can get reversed by Before This Gets Out of Hand or keep it a D:7, but give the card a drawback.

Not to be negative but the only superstar who could ever reverse that from his backlash deck is Matt Striker with the cards that exist right now.

Agreed.  Also compare the One-Inch Punch with the only 2 Trademark Cores that currently exist:

148/206 (STARTER DECK – FOIL – Ric Flair)
Space Mountain Punch
Trademark: Core
Draw up to 2 cards.
Unique
head
F:0 D:4

169/206 (STARTER DECK – FOIL – Stone Cold Steve Austin)
Strike of the Rattlesnake
Trademark: Core / Reversal: Extreme
Draw up to 1 card.
Unique
head
F:3 D:6

Actually from looking at this, the One-Inch Punch in its current state looks pretty comparable to currently existing cards.  Like the other two cards it is ridiculously difficult to reverse due to being a Trademark Core.  It costs more than F:0 to play (unlike the Space Mountain Punch), but it costs less than the Strike of the Rattlesnake to play.  It's also doesn't Reverse like Strike of the Rattlesnake.  Another thing to note is that the One-Inch Punch and the Strike of the Rattlesnake both put you in Mean Fortitude range.

I hate to say this, but it actually looks like the One-Inch Punch is slightly underpowered compared to the Strike of the Rattlesnake especially considering <R> Stone Cold's ability.  Austin's ability is, of course, offset by his small handsize and if we want to go with a big handsize for Bruce, I think the power level of the One-Inch Punch is appropriate as is.  But the text does have to be changed because it's like never ever going to be triggered in the current environment.

Hmm how about this:

Lee’s One Inch Punch
Trademark: Core
Requirement: First card played this turn
Your opponent draws up to 1 card.  Draw 3 cards.  End your turn.
Unique
Chest
F: 1 D: 7

The number of cards you draw can be increased if we choose to lower Bruce's starting handsize.  My reasoning behind this ability is that Bruce demonstrated this technique as an exhibition with no preparation beforehand (hence the requirement) and with no further attacks afterwards (hence ending your turn).
