Re: Why was JBL nearly looked over?

1 he was a horible wrestler and person
2 he was just a filler champion because Eddies merch sales didn't meet expectations, Cena wasn't ready yet and if he really needed to hold the wwe title AT LEAST give him the us title first, it would complement his george bush style character, speaking of which
3 his gimmick is unoriginal
4 this was 2004 Brock and Goldberg were gone, rock and austin weren't coming back and Triple h was just unwatchable, JBL couldn't hold any of their jocks yet he was the only one of any kind of traditional substance left on Smackdown
5 as far as comparisons go it also didn't help that Taker was then just a part timer and he and Booker clearly wren't in their prime anymore dispite being more credible than JBL
