That's certainly a factor, yes. Seeing the saggy old idiot flop around the ring was embarrassing in the extreme. However, this has nothing to do with the fact that I just personally can't stand listening to him or watching him wrestle. His matches are a snooze and his overselling is ridiculous and cringeworthy (much like Shawn Michaels). His promos are not great, there is no subtlety, no quiet intensity and no juxtaposition between loud and soft. He just shouts like a moron. Compare his mic work to Mick Foley, Raven, Jake Roberts, Steve Austin, Chris Jericho...he does not compare, not even close. He is overated in my opinion. You obvioulsy think differently, that's fine.
