Re: Official Match/DVD/Show Discussion Thread - The Ragin' Climax
During my rewatch of all these past years, one thing that did stick out was how often all these "resets" that Chismo is talking about occurred. I can honestly name only one main eventer during that time that understood how to sell long-term, and his name is Michael Francis Foley. Rock sometimes did a good job, but oftentimes he shat on any prior work during his comeback sequence. Undertaker and Kane didn't know how to sell, or never needed to. Triple H had on-and-off days. Austin was Kofi Kingston level bad as a seller. Eh, I guess if Jericho and Benoit count as main eventers, they were good sellers. But for the most part, I would have to say that we have the best group of "sellers" today than any other time in company history.
