Wow, someone said Shelton Benjamin is charismatic. That was one of the most random statements ever. It's like saying Khali is a technician. You can say Benjamin is a suberb athlete, but he's clearly uncharismatic. You can blame the WWE, but when you spent 10 years in a company and your only attempt of having an unique look or gimmick is wearing golden trunks, you are unfortunately pathetic. And if the guy had charisma or personality it would have noticed.

Seriously. You can say Benjamin is a good wrestler but talking about how charismatic he was has only one name: blind love.

Also Bobby Lashley- no charisma and no presence despite his huge muscles. And John Morrison has no mic skills and marginal charisma. He cannot be the HBK of this era.

Shelton was far more over as a face, turning him heel really hurt him because he has an in ring ability that wants to be cheered.

In other words: the only thing that guy has is his athleticism, so if you turn heel he's useless since he cannot use his personality or his mic work-because they don't exist- to be hated.

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.

Talent/charisma draws. Not size.

Shelton Benjamin, still amazed at how much they wasted him.

MVP, Carlito, Kennedy (if healthy), Regal, O'Haire (could have replaced Batista in Evolution in Dave's IR/PUP 2003), Mordechai (?), Billy Gunn (Ziggler with better mic skills), Nick Dinsmore ( played Eugene), & Hassan...

Would love to see how big of a star Lashley would be by now.

I am also a huge fan of Monty Brown (Cor Von).

Morrison and Benjamin immediately come to mind.

MVP was more of a complete package, so it's even more shocking that the company didn't have enough faith in him to break through that proverbial glass ceiling.
