Hell, he's not a star today despite the ridiculously low standards and the terrible overpush he's gotten.
Strange how someone that's supposedly not very talented can make guys like Austin and The Rock want to work specifically with him when (if, in one case) they are coming back. I wonder who I should set my trust in when it comes to judging talent. The poster on the Internet or some of the biggest stars in wrestling history?
It's hilarious what lengths people go to in order to try to justify their opinions. It's not about talent, it's about taste.
