The cream always rises I don't buy that there are super talented guys on the current roster who are being buried. If they have the talent and drive that guys like Punk, Bryan, and Ziggler have then they would be over.
And that all falls back on the booking.
Look at the greatness that was Steve Austin in WCW and ECW. But, when he got to WWE, he was just another guy. He possessed all the tools to become a star but it wasn't until creative took the chance on him.
You can't say that the current roster doesn't have the talent & drive, when it's not their fault that creative is not utilizing the abilities they do have. The proper booking can get anybody over. Austin as the ring master wasn't over, Rocky Maivia wasn't over, Hunter Hearst Helmsley wasn't over but when booked properly, Stone Cold, The Rock and HHH in DX were 3 of the most over guys in history. All because creative capitalized on what they had.
Can't say the rest of the roster isn't talented, when they are rarely given the opportunity to shine.
