Bryan is one of the most over people in the company and is a storyline which WWE has put a lot of investment into with Kane. Despite not being in the main event spot he and Kane are two of the most relevant people in the company today. People are paying to see them. You can be relevant without being in the main event spot. It's up to WWE to make that happen and they can. Unfortunately it's not an overnight fix.
Ziggler is the MITB winner and since the build to SS has been booked a lot stronger and is in a storyline with the face of the company. How is that not relevant? The rest I can agree with but you talk as if Sandow is doomed for life because of it. When clearly that is not the case.
You are a overreacting because the mark in you wants everything now and you don't think about the long term. CM Punk of all people was the one guy who was fucked about so much in WWE, definitely a guy who was ready way before he actually got the serious push behind him. Now he is the WWE Champion for a year and is heading in to face the Rock at the Royal Rumble. OMG PUNK IS DOOMED FOREVER HE DID JOBZ TO TAKER AS THE WORLD CHAMPION LOL.
He is not ready. Not from a talent standpoint which you are arguing from but from a credibility standpoint in the eyes of the casual fans. He has not been booked anywhere near strong enough for start for people to take him seriously. If you want a main eventer for the next 5-10 years you can't just book someone to the top overnight. It takes time. All the best top level talents, the Rock's, Stone Cold's, HBK's, Bret Hart's etc. were not thrusted into the title position after 8 months. They were booked for the long term and it benefitted them in the long run. That's what WWE should do with Sandow and hopefully it will. It benefits no one if Sandow is just thrusted into the WHC/WWE championship spot. It doesn't help the company, product or even Sandow in the long run because much like they found with putting Swagger, Del Rio and Sheamus in that spot too soon they find out they aren't ready and are not taken seriously and getting the reactions from the fans so they have to thrust them down the card and start all over again. Sheamus is the only one out of the three that has come out as a true main event player and that is only
because he is a HHH guy. And it took him years to rebuild as well.
Yeah of course, use hyperbole to back up all your statements. That's certainly going to prove a point LOL
. Of course Sandow would accept that, anyone would. That isn't even the point. The point is is that you are overreacting and Sandow has plenty of time to make an impact and become a main eventer. Sandow is a special talent and you don't want to rush him so he becomes another Swagger or Del Rio. He should be a main eventer for the next 5-10 years. Which leads to my next point.
Oh the hyperbole in this paragraph
its so hard to take you seriously. Sheamus is a two time world champion. His reign as WWE champion lasted a month and then he dropped it. His WHC reign was 6 months. That's 7 months out of 3 years. He got his first title run after 5 months and had it for a month. Essentially he hasn't had a top tier title for 2 years after that and was stuck around the midcard. He didn't stay at the main event level and was a victim of being booked too fast. That is actually worse than a slow build. Look at guys like Jack Swagger and Del Rio. Since their rushed title reigns they have not been able to be given the ball again with a major world title. Even worse for Swagger because he hasn't been given a main event push since. He was just thrusted into that spot and nobody took him seriously as champion. Not only because WWE didn't book him properly because he was a short term fix and they couldn't trust him as a champion but because he was not booked strongly before getting the title so therefore casuals could not take him seriously.
I'm not usually a big proponent of what HHH has to say but one of the things he's said in the past when it comes to these things is true: It's the guy that makes the title, not the title that makes the guy. You got be A) Ready to carry the championship and B) Be credible and taken seriously enough in the eyes of the casual fans to carry the title. If Sandow was thrusted into that spot in the next month there is no way casuals will buy it because he has not been given any build or any feuds to suggest he is at that level. Would you rather Sandow be a main event player for the next 5-10 years or just be thrusted into the main event spot only to fall by the way of Swagger? Regardless of whether Swagger even deserved to be there in the first place I know exactly which option I would choose.
CM Punk says hello. So does Daniel Bryan from November 2011 to July 2012. So does Sheamus. Hell so does HHH of 2000. You are talking shit and overreacting. Plenty of guys have gotten out of the mid card whilst being stuck there for an X period of time. Sandow is not doomed. You are just butthurt and impatient.
Sandow is 30. You are talking about literally MONTHS of a potential 10-15 year career. Hell, it could be even longer than that. He is not doomed or mid card for life. He hasn't even been on the main roster for a year. He's fine. All the current "relevant" players you are talking about except for Ryback who was only thrusted into that spot because there was no other better choice as a face from WWE's Point of view that Punk hadn't already beat took years before they were actually established as main eventers. Even Big Show in his early days hovered around the mid card at certain points in 1999, mainly tag teaming with Taker. Much like Sandow did with Cody and will probably continue to do. It did not hurt Big Show in the long run, not by a long shot.
Your deterministic attitude is completely hilarious because most main event players in wrestling history were in that said company for years before they even got that main event push. Sandow has even been in the company for a year and you are crying that he is doomed
. Please don't get your knickers in a twist and just relax. All you are doing is giving yourself a headache.
Oh and by the way for your information, winning and losing is not the be all and end all of getting over or being relevant. The Rock lost more than he won in his entire first run and is still considered one of the greatest of all time. Bryan loses more than he wins and yet is one of the most over guys in the company and someone WWE knows they could push into the main event spot any time soon. Hell even Jericho got to a point in his career where he lost 7 out of 10 times and was still one of the biggest heels in the company.
The beauty of being a heel is you don't even have to win most of the time and you can still get heat and be over. Success is not defined by winning and losing solely, that statement is completely false. Its about how you connect and get over with the fans as well as of course your placement on the card. Which yes Sandow at the moment is a mid carder but that does not mean he is going to be a mid carder for the next 10 years.
Edge was a midcarder/tag team guy for 6-7 years before winning his first WWE title. Those years certainly hurt him when he was getting established and getting himself over with the fans long term.
. Just that one fact destroys and makes what you've been saying look completely and utterly stupid.
