You're right, all the evidence is there to suggest that he won't be a top tier talent. I'm just not going to buy it, and I think at this point, the facts have been presented enough.
Bryan has made a career out of proving people wrong. Like I said, he was never meant to make it to the WWE, never meant to get over, never meant to be entertaining, never meant to win a World title, etc. etc. I believe that at some point he will get his day in the sun, and I'm not suggesting that he'll be the next John Cena. In truth his career might end up being cyclical, but I do believe that he'll be much more than an enhancement talent when all is said and done.
At the end of the day, Bryan got really hot for a time, and the company decided not to fully go through with it. Instead they opted to feed him to others they liked better as seen by this latest example of heel Bryan losing clean to heel Del Rio to tell the fans that Del Rio > Bryan. You have these mongs saying how Ryback is over for a couple of weeks so they should push him to the very top and the WWE is going to go with it simply because he's the type of guy they like. WWE's decisions will always trump anything Bryan does.
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?
