JBL- he was one dimensional as both Justin "Hawk" Bradshaw and a member of the APA, never saw him emerging to main event status

Jeff Hardy- still don't entirely understand this one but he has a following and still wrestles high risk after all these years

Albert- we can talk about how he's been a disappointment as Tensai but he's had some success, won the IC title and has improved greatly in the ring

I never saw Edge as a potential multi-time world champion.

There are others, but these are the ones that stand out most to me. I am sure I am forgetting some others.
The Blue Chipper himself.. Rocky Maivia

lol I saw him debut.. there was absolutely nothing that stood out about the kid and people hated him.. it's like.. how can i describe this

he was a morning person in a non-morning person world is the best way i can describe it

the crowd wasn't even in to him to be brutally honest.. lol

the only thing that stood out and got my attention? "First 3rd generation wrestler"

Won't revisit those already mentioned but how about Johnny Polo/Scotty Flamingo. It wasn't until Raven became well...Raven that he found his groove.

Great call here. I hadn't watched wrestling in a few years when I first saw Raven and couldn't believe he was the same person who was previously Johnny Polo. I never would have expected him to be the center of a show and champion like he was in ECW.

Saw all three first in ECW, never thought they would all become WWF world champs

I also add DDP, first saw him as an AWA manager, never thought he would be a world champ in WCW.
Yeah i forgot about rey, he totally deserves a mention in this thread.

Bubba Ray Dudley. First saw him stuttering in ECW. Won many tag belts with D-Von in ECW, WWF and TNA. Now a pretty good singles guy

RVD - First time I saw him was a Robbie V in WCW. Never thought he would be a world champ in WWF or TNA.

Vickie Guerrero for the non-wrestling category. Was given a job due to Eddie's death. Was a boring baby face. Turn her heel, paired her with Edge and her career took off.

HHH shagged and married his way into WWE management. If Stephanie wasent in the business he would still be a mid carder
