Ryback to form a tag team with Gillberg
In the good ol days you had a rip-off to mock the competition. Today the rip-off gets a push because the boss is mad that the original refused to sign a contract with his company

Cena and Orton are the only ones I can really think of. Others like Daniel Bryan could have worked well in the midcard too.

I could definitely see Punk in a tag team, perhaps with Bryan?. Imagine Edge/Christian, Dudleys, Hardys and Punk/Bryan in a four way TLC match for the Tag Team titles.

None of them would be above midcard.

Straight Edge Punk and Austin would have set the world on fire.

Am I the only person who really couldn't be bothered to cheer for Austin? Big jerk, beers, stunners. Rinse. Repeat. CM Punk at least keeps it interesting.

Re: Which PG era wrestler would find success in AE?

The "PG-era" is such a lame phrase. If you take out the years 1997-2000, in the entire rest of WWE's history since Vince McMahon took over, isn't it ALL PG era? And no offense but the Attitude Era fucking sucked. Austin & The Rock were awesome, no doubt. But shits like Val Venis, Mideon, The Godfather, Beaver Cleavage, Viscera, Puke, Nurse BB, The Headbangers, DOA, Los Boricuas, Mean Street Posse, Steve Blackman, The J.O.B. Squad, or Leif Cassidy, T&A, The Oddities, P.M.S. featuring Meat, The Truth Commission, Gillberg, The Sultan, Spark Plug Bob Holly, Tiger Ali Singh, Max Mini, The Goddwins, etc. were all AWFUL & channel-changers.

The "Attitude Era" is a big reason why so many people look down on pro-wrestling & treat it like it's a disgusting, derogatory joke that only imbeciles and juveniles watch. A fuckin' show featuring 8-Ball & Chainz Vs. Miguel Perez & Jose Estrada, Jr. with Sable stripping, Goldust getting called a queer by Lawler & Vince McMahon pissing his pants is not the pinnacle of the industry, I'm sorry.

Re: Which PG era wrestler would find success in AE?

The only way I see Punk being a main eventer in the AE was if his gimmick was like the one he had from 2009-2010. Other than that I see him being nothing more than a mid carder. Daniel Bryan would have probably had a role similar to D'Lo Brown and maybe won the Euro title and IC title a few times. I don't see Orton being all that successful at all. Even as his 2009 persona. There were enough crazed heels or personas and Orton just would've been lost in the shuffle. Cena might have been successful but I don't see him succeeding with his rapper gimmick. He would have been a joke period. I doubt many could succeed with a rapper gimmick back then even though rap was arguably at it's peak. I just don't see the crowd taking a white rapper all too seriously. His rapper gimmick came at the perfect time.But, the Cena from mid 05-06 probably would have succeeded. He still had an edge to him even though he didn't rap anymore. For some reason I can see Sandow being a great heel with his current gimmick. It just fits perfectly during the AE. I can see McMahon putting the title on Sandow and Sandow talking about how ignorant Stone Cold is and how the fans needs saving.

So, with this current roster I see Sandow, Cena, Bryan, and Punk succeeding.
