What Would It Take For New Stars to be Made in Today's WWE?
It's WrestleMania season and up to three matches will have a big name star that is from the Attitude, Ruthless Aggression, or 2005 (pre-PG).
As far as I'm concerned, only ONE new star has been made and its CM Punk for the obvious reasons ("pipe bomb" promo, MITB 2011, 430+ day reign as WWE Champion). Even he has his drawbacks but he's been consistent with adopting several characters (punk kid, twisted prophet/leader, activist/rebel, and now overlooked/disrespected guy).
Now who else is a bonafide, can SELL a main event for several months, realistically can carry the titles, and can carry ANYONE to a great match? Who else is a main event CHARACTER? Why do we as a fan body not CARE about the newer guys? What are they NOT doing? How can they break through the glass ceilings and grab brass rings and shit like that?
The list is hard to think of when I think about the "top" talents of Miz, Rhodes, Sandow, Cesaro, Kingston, and Ryback even...that they all are missing something to get to the top or STAY there (see Miz).
