I just couldn't be arsed arguing this among the people who are so set in their ways, or following a trend at the moment.
Charisma

(1) compelling attractiveness or charm that can inspire devotion in others
(2) a divinely conferred power or talent

In what way does any of that equate to charisma? That's like saying Dolph Ziggler has charisma in abundance because he calls himself a show off, does taunts and wiggles his rear. None of it means squat. Charisma is more-so how people react to what you do. No doing some taunts, being cocky/full of yourself, stupid poses and the like does not mean you have charisma.

And what on earth does his off screen work have to do with anything? Do we tune into raw each week to see Joseph Hennig or Curtis Axel?

Their body langugage with one another shows all the charisma they need as a team


However, I feel the more athletic wrestlers (such as Jack who is obviously an athlete first and foremost and has little experience in entertainment) suffer from either being given the wrong gimmick or being heel when they should be face and vice versa.

I do think Cody has improved a lot over the past year or so to be honest

Come on Vince ... it's time ... give Rick Martel his way overdue Hall Of Fame induction.

I did, and I found his commentary decent. And even if it sucked, what does commentary have anything to do with him being charismatic or not?

Cody Rhodes I feel however, has been the most improved wrestler this year, specially his in ring work, it's phenomenal right now!

Oh, no, I'm chill. My main point is that people shouldn't comment that someone is uncharismatic without knowing the definition of charisma. Sure, Cody maybe be somewhat less over than his brother, but he is still pretty over. You heat loud, clear chants from viewers of all ages in the stands at PPV's, and some Raw's, quite often. He is over, meaning viewers like him. Someone who can pretty consistently draw viewers to cheer for him/her is bound to be charismatic.

Re: Least charismatic wrestlers of all time

I don't think Cody Rhodes is that good on the mic, but he does have charisma. After being a heel so long, he is surprisingly good as a face right now, I'm loving his current run and hopefully he'll get another singles title run. Ambrose vs. Rhodes is a nice title feud I hope to see in the near future.

Re: Least charismatic wrestlers of all time

Storm, Kidd, Axel, and Malenko come to mind.

Benjamin and McIntyre are charisma black holes too.
