Just look at what they did to Daniel Bryan. He could've been a genuine top star for them with such a weak roster, instead they present him and forever tainted him as a midcard laughing stock who jobbed to AJ. They absolutely fail at every instance in maximizing their talent when the timing is right. They always wait either too long, or they just refuse to pull the trigger. Guys like MVP, Kennedy, Morrison, Umaga, Carlito, Miz, RVD, Kofi, Christian, Barrett, and countless, countless others could've been more than what they actually were, but they've cultivated an atmosphere where if you're a midcarder showing any confidence or self-respect you're looked as arrogant and hard to work with, and if you don't, they think you're a beta midcarder and you're only chance is if someone high up likes you.
I do have one question for anyone who might feel that Dwayne Johnson "owes" the business. Is it just him, or is it anyone who moved on to other things? Should Luna Vachon get heat for running a towing company instead of working on RAW? Should Maven be critiqued on his Home Shopping Network bits instead of wrestling?
Or is it only the ones who go on to highly visible careers in movies that owe something? Why do Johnson (who left after putting people over, doing the traditionally "right thing") and Lesnar (who did not; except for making Eddie a legitimate star) get called sell-outs who "forgot where they came from" when someone who retires to do some regular job get credit (as they should) for moving on and making it without falling into a sea of addiction?
