Biggest On-the-Cusp Star That Vince Missed Out On
 
In the 80s and 90s, there were a ton of those "ALMOST THERE" wrestlers that had all the talent in the world, and really could've been on that upper tier of stars, but.... just didn't get there.

Which ONE is the biggest head shaker... the one that needed just a little extra umph to get over... the one that could've been on the level of Hogan, Savage, Warrior, Bret, HBK?

Note: You CAN use hindsight for this poll. So you know some of these wrestlers demons and you know the baggage that might come from a push. OR!! You say, with a better push, and a better atittude, the demons would never come up.

- Jake the Snake
- Ted Dibiase
- Mr Perfect
- Ravishing Rick Rude
- Owen Hart
- Razor Ramon
- Rob Van Damn
- Big Boss Man
- Vader (in WWF)
- Christian
- Booker T
- Cody Rhodes
- Ryback
- Dolph Ziggler

*I consider Piper, Edge, D Bryan, CM Punk, Jericho all to be stars in their own right*

*Jake never got... THERE. Piper had the hollywood career to help him. Jake did not*

Xavier Woods is the biggest on-the-cuck star at the moment.

Rick Rude could have been the top heel. He was awesome.

Past Era: Mr. Perfect

AE: Big Show, without question.

Ruthless Aggression Era: Rob Van Dam or Booker T

Universe Era (yes, was a thing): Marcus Cor Von, Elijah Burke, Kaval, take your pick. A lot of missed opportunities in that era.

Current: Cesaro or Bray Wyatt.
