Hell, half the time, the fans don't even know what they've got until the WWE pushes somebody and points it out for them. Look at Austin, nobody gave a fuck about him until the WWE saw something in him and pushed him.
No, Austin was already becoming popular before he even got pushed. And yes I do think it matters, Orton & Sheamus are two top stars, Imagine what would happen if say TNA picked them up?
