Re: Ziggler defines overrated...
It's not that Ziggler has no charisma. It's because his charisma is subdued and still hasn't translated to television. Though I wouldn't grade his charisma as anything extraordinary, it's probably about average. Ziggler's biggest issue that he has had for his entire career is he seriously lacks the physical presence and natural star aura needed to be a top guy.
Physical presence like a guy like Brock Lesnar has who just shows up on television and everyone in the arena immediately pays attention to him without him doing a single thing. Though Brock is an exceptional and likely textbook definition of "presence" in that people have massive reactions to him on either end of the spectrum in the example that audiences burst out in "Holy Shit" chants merely by his entrance and him not even doing or saying anything.
Ziggler doesn't have this aspect and is why he overcompensates with his bumping to get noticed as said many times in interviews he 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?
