Re: Wrestler who you were shocked didn't make based on ability
MVP is the first one that comes to mind. It just makes no sense. His build-up was PERFECT, he was over as all fuck, he had an incredible U.S. title run, and he was 110% ready to be a main eventer... So what the fuck happened?
William Regal (I'll admit, he did ruin his own push back in... 2008, was it? But really, imo I think he should've had a chance long before that. Sublime in the ring, yet unlike a lot of technical masters, he was charismatic as FUCK, and was a pro on the mic. Such a shame, man.)
Taz (Apparently, Vince doesn't understand this either. He's said since Taz's semi-retirement that he was a huge fan of Taz's work, and regrets making him do the job to Triple H when he was ECW champion.)
Raven (Alright alright, this one I can understand. But the man was amazing goddammit.)
Christian (Granted, he got two WHC reigns, and there are people that think he isn't WWE champ material... But just listen to the reactions he got back in 2005. It's absolutely ridiculous how over he was.)
These are the only cases that really baffle me. I can understand why guys like Mr. Kennedy (injury-prone) and Carlito (reportedly never gave much of a fuck) didn't make it.
^furious, projects self-image onto others^
Talent/charisma draws. Not size.
