Default '____________' is the reason im here today.

So one of the most common things you hear wrestlers speak about both inside and outside of kayfabe is who their inspiration to pursue wrestling was. I'm going to discount Steve Austin, Rock and Hogan from this question, as they invalidate my point slightly (though theyre pretty applicable either way).
From my recollection, 99.9% of guys are wrestlers today either due to those three, or the two my point is about, Shawn Michaels and The Undertaker. Now my memories hazy on exact details, but these two have had less than 10 world titles between them, counting that a present day star like orton has the same amount as them combined, or relative newcomer ADR having three already, which i believe is one less than Shawn.
Theyre hardly the most decorated guys ever on that front, despite being possibly the two greatest of all time.

My question is, do you think they take more pride in the fact that they inspired a generation between them or their world title reigns.
Also, do you think people who pursue wrestling after being inspired by cena, orton, sheamus etc, will be as 'good' as those who followed HBK and the deadman into wrestling?

Cena and Sheamus don't give the impression that they were inspired by anyone who could work a match like HBK or the Undertaker. I think Taker had 7 titles and Shawn 3. Undertaker has been been bigger than titles for a while now, it always surprised me at how few Shawn won.

MONEY is the reason im here today.

sad but true

we are at an age where the main driving force to someone wanting to make it in the big leagues is purely, money

the WWE is a Billion Dollar BRAND and an insane money making machine.. talent sees it and knows to get that security blanket.. you need to make it in the WWE where the big boys play

gone are the days of old where you have people truly invested in the business and it is their life and like you said.. guys like Hogan, Stone Cold Steve Austin, HHH, Taker, HBK, The Rock, etc.. gone are those days and there's also the reason why you see today's product sooo diluted it's because their primary motivation is not to be there for the fans or capture the imagination.. it's about getting paid
