Not denying that. But as a general rule of thumb I just don't think the guy is very good at extending his selling into his comeback and building hope spots around it. He definitely had that emotional connection that Matt could never dream to match, but I always find myself thinking Matt is probably one of the more overlooked great sellers of this decade as opposed to Jeff. Like watch the 6/22/07 Matt vs Finlay match from Smackdown and find me a Jeff match where he sells anywhere near as good as Matt, whilst also building the match expertly around the injury and incorporating it into his comebacks.
Jeff's a really fun and nutty bumper who can be utilised in the right settings, but people like Matt, Christian and Masters would be comfortably closer to what I'd call an all round great seller as opposed to Jeff.
