Re: Wrestlers that went further in their career than you expected when you first saw
I think the best answer from the current roster is The Miz by a clear mile. He looked so much like nothing when he debuted. Went on to main event WM as the WWE champion (even though he was the 3rd wheel in a 1v1 match).
It's not that I couldn't see the forest for the trees.
I simply chose to see the trees for what they were
and not for what they were unknowingly a part of.
