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

The Best in the World of course, your WWE Champion of 323 consecutive days, CM Punk. He would have been a main eventer in the attitude era too, there, I said it.

The thought of an Austin/Punk feud in 1998 has me salivating, Punk truly is a guy that is wrestling in the wrong era.

He never compared it to Austin/McMahon though. Nor said Punk/Austin would be better than it just that it would have been godly in its own sense...Which it would hae

Anyway yeah Punk & maybe Orton would work. Bryan would make a great midcarder in that era too but wouldnt break the main event scene for sure.

Zack Ryder would've been an entertaining midcarder. His current character is like the "kid friendly version of an Attitude Era character". He'd probably have the same gimmick, except with more references to clubbing, partying, drinking, and sex.

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

Punk would have been a main eventer and probably be higher in the card than he is today. Bryan, Sandow and possibly Ziggler would be upper-midcarders. Slater, Cena, Del Rio and Hunico would be regulars in the midcard. Prime Time Players would probably be in tag-team contention with AW as their manager. Otunga would be in Right To Censor or play a similar role and would probably have about the same status that he does today. Ryder and Santino would probably be about the same too. Sheamus might be a lower-midcard/tag-team guy. Other than that I doubt anyone would have really got anywhere, at least not with their current gimmicks.

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

Cena
could have debut toward the end of the era to signal WWE's change to more family friendly programming

Orton
Heel legend killer gimmick would've been best

Punk
Punk(SES) vs Austin would have been Auustin best feud after McMahon and Rock

Ryback
powerhouses like ryback fit in any era

Sandow
his character is the exact opposite of the WWE at the time and would fit in as a great heel

EvE
Would fit right with the other divas of the era

Beth Phoenix
Phoenix vs Chyna in her prime would had been a decent storyline

Sandow seems like someone they would have thrown into Right to Censor IMO.

Punk would probably be SES Cult Punk except back then instead of implying that he was Jesus he would actually call and portray himself as Jesus

They'd have people praying to him and everything. He'd most likely get crucified too (mostly everyone was getting crucified back then anyways)

Somewhat rewriting history, I figured Del Rio would have worked well as the corporate champion and have strong ties to Vince.

For the most part, the JOB Squad would have been loaded.
