Flair, Punk, Bryan, Michaels, they were able to do it extremely well, hell even Lesnar himself did it against the Big Show of all people, a guy you just named. So why couldn't Angle do it?
And "getting huge pops" and "the fans clearly loved" are both the same thing. And even then, that doesn't = great storytelling. Fans loved the HBK/Angle match at Wrestlemania and yet from a storytelling perspective the match was awful.
Edit: Why the hell is Cokecan not posting anymore? Oh god please don't tell me he realized how stupid he was sounding and stopped.
Ok, if you are saying Daniel Bryan had an epic story telling match with the Big Show, which one was it? lol. And again, Big Show vs Angle, ending in a shitty DQ, you expect a great storyline out of that? Really now, I know you'll stick with your argument to the death but using that match is the equivalent of me citing a Khali vs CM Punk to say that Punk is a shitty worker.
And yes, big pops don't always = great story telling, but big pops on a consistent basis like Angle was doing lead to money. So what Angle was doing, even if it's not your cup of tea, clearly worked. If the guy came back to the WWE tomorrow, people would pay to see this guy, even if he's doped up on half the pills in existence and hasn't been on WWE TV in close to a decade.
