Vince is high on Ryback and obviously wants him to become a top star. He didn’t feel the same way about ANY of those guys you posted at those stages in their careers.
And since we're getting technical, I said "squashed". Not “decisively” beat. And even then, Hurricane didn't decisively beat Rock. His entire win was a fluke because of Austin's interference.
None of those guys ran through the former champion like Ryback did Miz.
Before I begin, let's remember that you're completely overlooking my original point: that the POSSIBILITY of being a world champion one day does not make you a success TODAY.
Now, let's move forward with your constantly...er...evolving
So, first it was that Ryback will definitely be a world champion (OBJECTION, CONJECTURE).
Then, it was that others weren't beating former world champs early in their career (OBJECTION, SEE EXHIBITS).
Now, it's that Ryback is different and special and a success, because he's guaranteed to be a world champion in the future AND has squashed former world champions early in his career AND has Vince's backing. That's what makes him different.
Gee, what is that? I can't tell.
Oh, that's right. It's Bobby Lashley.
Six months after his debut.
Crushing a former WWE Champion.
With Vince's backing, because only a few months later, he was main-eventing against John Cena on PPV.
Long term, how did that work out?
Sorry, buddy. You're out of your depth.
