Steve Austin - great promo, great matches, unique character but for whatever reason I just never cared about him. Even as a kid, I'd want the Austin action figures to complete a full roster but he never inspired me. There's not a specific reason I can think of, but I just never cared much about him

Yeah I noticed that. For me I think he lacks that natural charisma/it factor so it's harder to connect.

Jeff Hardy - outside his stuff as the Obsolete Mule Brother Nero

and I never connected with Goldberg

And I'll say Reigns has some level of talent so him too.

Re: Wrestlers that you don't connect with, despite knowing that they have some level of talent

A huge amount of top guys in WWE for the internet fans are guys I missed when I was out of the wrestling loop in between my teen phase and my phase now so I have no real emotional connection to guys like Daniel Bryan, Seth Rollins, CM Punk. I am not disputing their in ring ability at all I respect all of them as workers but that deep emotional connection the fans have to these performers... I guess you just had to be there.

Of more current talents, I thought Balor and Asuka were over pushed in NXT and so that killed my interest. I also think the Gargano/Ciampa feud has been incredibly mismanaged so I do not have the emotional investment in this feud like I did with them when they were a tag team.

I agree w/ Dean. I was never interested in him and found him to be incredibly boring. Only time I had any interest was when Jericho was feuding w/ him back in WCW.

Jericho knew how to make Dean's Stoic personality a strength

other than that, when he faced High Flyers it was interesting to see the contrast between Jo's style and there's, especially when he had a lot of counters to flippy moves

Aj - terrible babyface on the mic, just boring, great wrestler

Becky - don't see her appeal, decent in ring

Bliss - tiny girl who looks like she shouldn't be in a wrestling ring, but has a solid character

Reigns - all the talent in the world but when he opens his mouth he sounds like a goober

Charlotte - outside of her daddy's name I just don't see it, does a great moonsault

Re: Wrestlers that you don't connect with, despite knowing that they have some level of talent

Seth Rollins. I just can't connect with him for some reason. I don't know what his deal is besides burning it all down. I think I preferred him heel.

I can't help noticing that despite his incredible athleticism I just don't believe his work for the most part, and I hate the fact that he personifies this modern day style of no-selling - case in point the superplex to falcon arrow. Superplexes have always hurt both guys to an extent, somehow Rollins is immune.

"You know I'm automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It's like a magnet. Just kiss. I don't even wait."

"I backed him. You can see how loyal he is. He was begging for my endorsement. I could have said, 'Mitt, drop to your knees.' He would have dropped to his knees."

"You oughta see this guy - 'uh, I don't know what I said, uh, I don't remember,'"

“I will build a great wall – and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me – and I’ll build them very inexpensively. I will build a great, great wall on our southern border, and I will make Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words.”

"He is a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren't captured."

Just going to go with current guys NXT/main roster because beyond that it's irrelevant. I have never felt a connection to Daniel Bryan in his time in WWE. I have no connection to Riccochet immensely athletic but beyond that, I see and feel absolutely nothing. Bayley is another one.
