Re: Lack of rising stars ?
The fans chose Hulk Hogan, The Ultimate Warrior, Sting, Bret Hart, Shawn Michaels, Steve Austin, Goldberg, Rock, Diamond Dallas Page, John Cena, CM Punk and Bryan Danielson and then outside of Punk and Danielson the company machines got behind those wrestlers so it worked in unison and the result was seen by all.
Problem now is if Vince McMahon wants someone to be the top guy then that's what's going to happen regardless of whether the fans want them or not, don't want to be obvious but Roman Reigns is a perfect example of this.
We've seen Randy Orton, Bobby Lashley, Sheamus, Alberto Del Rio and Roman Reigns all tried to different lengths and none of them worked whilst the others of those time frames that were or are hugely popular were left in the mid card or used to put the chosen one over and that makes the fans reject them.
Another reason is other than Hulk Hogan every rising star worked the traditional method of mid card feuds then on to the mid card title and once they were a draw with the mid card title and over they were moved up to the top tier and only then were they made top champion, now we see people hot shotted to the top title as if the title will make them when it's the wrestler than makes the title as seen when Cena was US champion.
Until Vince changes his ways or steps aside and the person taking over sees the problem nothing will change and the wrestlers that people WANT to see on top will continue to flounder in the mid card or flourish elsewhere, wasn't it reported a few months back that Vince said he wished he'd signed AJ Styles a decade ago ? His stubbornness cost him arguably the best in ring performer of the last decade and as seen Styles "flaw" in mic skills have been sorted since joining WWE so wouldn't have been a problem.
