Everyone was ranking Kidd as a Low Top Tier, which isn't far fetched considering what him and Law accomplished and Oda's parallel with Luffy (Even if they're not Equal).
Now I'm not one who would think Kidd would win, far from it. But claiming Kidd was annihilated or one shotted, if true is too much.
The incident with GB was already breaking some boundaries with writing regarding Shanks, it was all over the place.
From Momo not wanting help, to be helped by Shanks, it was what it was.
Shanks dominating Kidd (if it happened) throws some mud in BM for example, no one is denying Shanks superiority over Kidd, but him overwhelming him to this extent.
Calling Kid or Law low top-tier when they barely beat by far the most incompetent top-tier in what appears to be one of the most convenient battles in OP is among the most clueless things you could do as a power scaler. I don't think Kid's defeated yet, but this is never supposed to be that hard a fight for Shanks. Kid's lack of skill was well established in Wano, and a lot of us pointed out that he wouldn't fare well against skilled fighters like Shanks. But the people who don't respect the match-up circumstances have been thinking otherwise.
- Kid vs Beckman, Kid wins but is very worn out
- We also see Lucky Roo and Yasopp knocked out, seems Kid defeated all of them
- Shanks shows up and is impressed he beat all his commanders, but seems he's out of energy now
- Shanks one shots Kid
-RHPs defeated Kid pirates but Oda offscreened most of the fight, this is another Kaido/Oden situation, leakers are hyping up Shanks oneshotting Kid but in reality we only see the "finisher" and Kid took many more hits prior to that.
-Same as above expect Kid isn't defeated, his crew is but he's still conscious.
-Shanks actually 1 vs all'd Kid's crew and oneshotted everybody, reads like some fanfic honestly.
