Agree about Swagger, but totally disagree about Ryback. The guy has the appearance of a real badass IMO.
He has the body and the face to look menacing, but his facial expression and body mannerisms look like they belong on a G-rated cartoon character, he's as forced and corny as it gets. I wouldn't be surprised if he read "Badass for dummies" and tried to copy some guidelines, without having much intensity of his own, he just doesn't feel organic at all compared to guys like Lesnar, who have the IT factor and know how to scare people. Ryback on the other hand has made me laugh unintentionally on most of his closeup face shots, he's simply not a badass type of guy by nature and it shows.
By that I mean a wrestler that either talks or comes out to the ring and wrestle but you could never take him seriously at all. For me, its
1. Sheamus- Everytime this guy talks, i just can't take him serious at all. If he ever tried to be a heel it would never work because of how he looks. I mean, he looks like your friendly irish guy that doesn't have any bad to him. His moves white noise and brogue kick to me are a joke for anyone that is a main event guy. When i watched him against triple h back a while ago and ppl said he was going to be a new star, i looked at this guy and couldn't help but laugh b/c he seemed to be someone that would be doing skits with santino.
2. Alberto Del Rio- This guy just cannot do anything. Whether its coming out as a rich aristocratic heel or being a face, he can't draw any reaction from the crowd. He does that silly smirk that doesn't even get anything at all.
Sheamus was a pretty good heel for awhile. He definitely plays his character well. As a heel he's a never smiling, angry, vicious Irishman. As a face they have him like Cena. Smiling, happy, goofy.
Um, Bret's one of the greatest ever. But to each his own.
Can't take Santino, Miz, or David Otunga seriously. Santino just turned into a complete comedic joke. Even when he gets serious its stupid. Miz is just obnoxious and I can't stand the sight of him. Otunga has a physique. And that is it.
Edit: How could I forget Ryback? I guess he's decent in the ring but those dumbass facial expressions just ruin everything.
