Re: What superstars today do you think would have fit in perfectly in the Attitude Er

I don't think Punk would of got very far, his pipebomb that skyrocketed his career would barely of made a ripple in the attitude era days, his character just wouldn't of lasted in the AE.

The attitude era consisted of larger than life characters, with oodles of charisma. Of the current roster, Bray Wyatt and I could definitely see Damien Sandow making his gimmick work back then, it might not of got main event but it could of worked and survived.

Sheamus would be a guy who would of really fit in well in the AE, probably my number one pick. If you had Sheamus as a bad ass heel, he could of gone a long way back then, he deffo has the look and sorta of character that suited that time period in my opinion.

I do speak as someone who lived and watched all the way through the attitude era too, I don't base this on watching old youtube videos.

It's a statistical fact that adults who listen to rap music have lower IQ's than adults who listen to other forms of music.
I bet if you were to force an IQ test on adult Cena fans, the results would break the same way.

Therefor, there's no reason to take anything adult Cena fans say seriously.

The only one that comes to mind is CM Punk. Maybe The Shield would have done acceptable, too.

The Shield is a concept that wouldn't be tried in the AE. They confront Austin and it's stunner, stunner, stunner and back to drinking some more beer. Back in the AE Kane, Taker and Austin would clean house of 4 people without breaking a sweat.

Individually Ambrose is a likely shoe in as a mid card psycho. Reigns has connections so I imagine they would find some sort of role for him, but I don't think Rollins gets very far.

Cena's current gimmick with very few alterations would have made him a main event mega-heel in the AE. Probably at the cost of Triple H's title runs.

To the people mentioning the cut-throat politics of the day...umm Cena is a master class politician.

"The New Age Outlaws are a decent enough tag team for todays WWE, but where would they have even fit in during the AE? You got one guy who's only special attraction is that he yells into a microphone on his way to the ring, and then you've got his partner whose nickname is.... Mr Ass. Can you imagine the Rock or Stone Cold in a promo with someone who called himself Mr Ass? They would have destroyed every bit of credibility he had in about 30 seconds or less."

"Kane is a decent enough special attraction for today's era, just because of how unique he is compared to everyone else, but considering in the AE we had someone named The Undertaker who basically had the exact same gimmick as he does except with a few tweaks here and there, he would have probably never even made it to television."

To be fair, The Rock DID bury Mr. Ass's singles push with a promo. :P

And Mick Foley was probably more notable for his awesome mic skills than his big bumps.

A Heel Sheamus would have been awesome in the Attitude era if done right.

Statistical fact, as in "pulled that out of my arse because it sounds good and reinforces my narrow-minded belief-system" I guess
