Re: Daniel "The Dazzler" Bryan

One of them was a legitimate main eventer that was utilized as a corner stone of a brand for several years and the other is a legitmate midcarder filling a roster space with no real focus, promotion, or glorification of where his character goes as a face or heel.

One of them was constantly put over by his peers and the announcers as being someone with appeal whether it be his legitimate credentials or his kayfabe ones. The other one has always been belittled by different announcers his entire tenure in the company, with the recent being a babyface that you're supposed to laugh at as encouraged by either goat references, physical unattractiveness, or simply being unappealing from said announcers.

I do have one question for anyone who might feel that Dwayne Johnson "owes" the business. Is it just him, or is it anyone who moved on to other things? Should Luna Vachon get heat for running a towing company instead of working on RAW? Should Maven be critiqued on his Home Shopping Network bits instead of wrestling?

Or is it only the ones who go on to highly visible careers in movies that owe something? Why do Johnson (who left after putting people over, doing the traditionally "right thing") and Lesnar (who did not; except for making Eddie a legitimate star) get called sell-outs who "forgot where they came from" when someone who retires to do some regular job get credit (as they should) for moving on and making it without falling into a sea of addiction?
